article imageAnn Coulter after George Zimmerman verdict: 'Hallelujah!'

Conservative social and political commentator Ann Coulter had a triumphant single-word Twitter reaction to the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the killing of 17-year-old African American Trayvon Martin, and it was, "Hallelujah!"
Coulter had threatened to riot if Zimmerman was found guilty in the killing of Trayvon Martin, a threat to which the comedian Garry Shandling responded, saying "I'll shot you if you riot."
The outspoken commentator has been a vociferous critic of the "mainstream" media's coverage of Zimmerman's trial, accusing the media of confusing issues with emphasis on the racial elements. She said (see video):
It’s outrageous and this is the way the media always is... New York went through this on a monthly basis in the 70s, generally led by Al Sharpton... Obama appears on the scene. Liberals want to defend him. They want to gin up the racial demagoguery machinery... Oh, they need their fake case of how racist America is out to trying to you know, and rape and murder black people,,, George Zimmerman— he’s what, an eighth black, he’s half Peruvian, but he counts as a white Hispanic...

She continued:
... It’s as if they think what has to be shown in this trial is George Zimmerman has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he did not engage in racial profiling... It’s not illegal for a private citizen to racially profile. It’s not illegal to follow someone. It’s certainly is not illegal when you have a concealed carry permit in Florida to have a gun on you. And by the way the burden of proof is 100 percent on the prosecution. They have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the self-defense claim was not legitimate. You do not need to have a scratch on you to fear death or imminent harm, which is why it’s kind of insane for people to say, 'Oh, no, no, no. I don’t think he’ll be convicted on second-degree murder, but he will be convicted on manslaughter.' The self-defense claim for each one of those is exactly the same. If he was in fear of … bodily harm, Trayvon doesn't have had to have laid a finger on him.
