Zimmerman’s Trial Begins- George Zimmerman is officially on trial for the murder of 17 year old Trayvon Martin. The opening statements were a little out of the ordinary when the prosecuting attorney dropped more than his fair share of f-bombs. He said, “Good morning. ‘Fin punks, these aholes all get away. These were the words in this grown man’s mouth as he followed this boy that he didn’t know. Those were his words, not mine.” The first day of trial was full of witnesses retelling Martin’s trip to the corner store and Zimmerman’s phone call to police while he was tracking Martin down because of his color before shooting and killing him. Zimmermans defense is saying, “The evidence will show this is a sad case; no monsters here. … George Zimmerman is not guilty of murder. He shot Trayvon Martin after he was viciously attacked.” Zimmerman’s defense claims Trayvon punched Zimmerman in the face and slammed his head on the concrete. One big twist in this case is that a state expert will not be allowed to testify on behalf of the 911 call that Zimmerman made to police. During the hearing it was found that none of Trayvon Martin’s DNA was found on Zimmerman.

Snowden In Russia Trying To Find New Hide Out- Edward Snowden is the man who is accused of unveiling national security surveillance programs and is now hiding out in Russia. The Obama Administration has to deal with issues on two ends. First with Hong Kong because they let Snowden leave the country after his passport was revoked and told them they wanted him sent back. A department of justice representative said, “The U.S. is disappointed and disagrees with the determination by Hong Kong authorities not to honor the U.S. request for the arrest of the fugitive, Edward J. Snowden.” Especially because they requested him from China on June 15th. There are also issues with Russia for their lack of action in giving Snowden up for arrest. They don’t know where he’s going now. They speculate Cuba, Venezuela and Ecuador.

Pork Laced Bullet- A company called Jihawg Ammo has created a bullet that is laced with pork that is supposed to intimidate potential terrorists, who don’t eat pork, from attacking Americans. A press release for the company said, “With Jihawg Ammo, you don’t just kill an Islamist terrorist, you also send him to hell. That should give would-be martyrs something to think about before they launch an attack. If it ever becomes necessary to defend yourself and those around you our ammo works on two levels.” The pork-covered bullets are supposed to scare off the Islamist terrorists who are religiously prohibited from eating swine. The bullets went on the market earlier this spring. One critic of the bullets said, “They’re taking their own stereotypes and making it into their own idiocy, and unfortunately there are a lot of idiots to buy into this stuff.”
