    Trayvon Martin was MURDERED . Zimmerman needs to be in PRISON

    This is a tragedy and it’s great that you’re reporting on it.
    Please report on rollback of lgbtq rights by Trump administration.

    THIS! This is how things change. If you are young and/or black (Floridian <-Edit) and don't get out and vote you're working against your own interests. Support this woman, take back your futures.

      @Veronica Valencia I couldn’t care less, racists end up destroying themselves with their own hatred so all the best with that.

    • @98LowDown You’re very provocative. In a pubescent Jr. High sort of way.

      @98LowDown Wow that’s very low .But God said have no man before him, and all that ugliness you just spewed is for whatever man you stand for.But not gods child he called home , not his mother who had to bury her child.To speak so low of a woman who son was killed and his killer set free signing skittle decided to lower yourself below George Zimmerman. Did you get a cookie ?

      @Classy Lady LOL, they’ve got nowhere to vent. Fox turned off their comments.

    • @Dave Schultz Give Republicans control and corruption will follow, not to mention racism, hate, division, etc. I know what I prefer, even though I know you are full of sh!t.

    Absolutely. But 3 ppl in 2 trucks. All because they saw a black Man or Young Man in the “wrong” place. Horrific

      They hunted Mr. Arbery down like he was a fugitive from the slave patrol.

    • He did trespass and grabbed a mans gun so🤷🏼‍♀️

      ​@Marie Erwin ​ Mr. Arbery’s trespass had nothing to do with them. The owner of the property didn’t know them, didn’t show them the video of the trespass, didn’t ask them to do anything about it, and categorically disavowed their actions.

      He grabbed the gun because it was aimed at him–after they hunted him down. He tried to get away from them and they wouldn’t let him.

      Look up what the son said after he shot Mr. Arbery three times. It pretty much sums up their mindset.

    • @Marie Erwin explain the video of the other people entering the property were they trespassing to ?

  5. God is with her and I support her all the way.

    • Thyalwaysseek God is with everyone, regardless of their political background. I’ll pray for you for God to help you expunge that anger from your dark soul

      @no one God is not involved in your petty politics, stop the blasphemy and belittling Him. You can also keep your prayers to yourself, I don’t want or need you praying for me, God will bless me if He finds me worthy of it, has NOTHING to do with you.

    • Thyalwaysseek your emotions are preventing you from reading. I’ll pray 🙂

      God is with no one, since he is not real. Unless you have good empirical evidence of his existence? Didn’t think so.

    • Logic Police I respect your different view. Just as I respect all religions. I just don’t have that much room in my heart to hate on ppl just bc they’re different. Sorry but no thank you 🙏🏽

    I see you , I hear you, I support you. From a plain american white guy who thinks enough is enough.

  7. Nothing but love for this strong woman. ❤❤❤

  8. Ms. Fulton is a beautiful, educated woman full of grace and strength. I will be donating to her campaign. 💐

    I wish her m u c h LUCK. Bless her strength and Determination.

  10. Good! I hope more people like her run for office! That is where real revolution will begin…and by revolution, I mean real changes will be made for the better. The Donald Trumps, Mitch McConnells, stephen Millers, etc…are a dying breed, and will be the new minority. Good will prevail, it might get worse before it gets better, but it will prevail!

    God bless her and her beautiful son … the tragedy and murder of this child was horrible … this man got away with pure murder. I know he watches down on her guides her, and motivates her to keep going on and make a true change . Powerful #karmicjustice #neverforgotten #trayvon

  12. I believe she would be a wonderful councilmember, she will need all the support from that county to win. Please get out and VOTE for her if you want CHANGE people!

  13. She will win!!

    It is spectacular to see her trying to create something good out of such a senseless tragedy (and the ensuing unbelievable demonstration of systemic racism that occurred after with Zimmerman going unpunished). She will bring the passion she holds to bear to create change for the better.

    My God, she is speaking such truth! #miamidadecounty vote!

  16. Racism is a boil on the face of America. It has been growing for decades, but the rate has accelerated when Trump came into office. Now it has popped. Better clean up or end up with a face full of pockmarks.

  18. I couldn’t believe Zimmerman got off for murder . Trevon didn’t do anything but cross over to get back home to his aunts .zimmerman was told not to follow from 911. He didn’t listen to them

  19. Logic Police | June 13, 2020 at 3:37 PM | Reply

    Her son started something he couldn’t finish. Oh and it still isn’t white people’s fault when a Mexican does something. Now she’s capitalizing on her “tragedy.” Ok then.

  20. Can she explain why they replaced Diamond Eugene with Rachel Jeantel?
