Trick Daddy luh the kids. And as the self-proclaimed Mayor of the 305, you know he's got to keep watch over the Florida justice system. So when an unarmed, 17-year-old kid is shot and killed by a grown man who then walks free, Trick Daddy calls shenanigans all over the place.

He's got more than a few problems with the jury, the judge, and the prosecution. But let's let him explain it himself, in 140 characters or less.

From the beginning, Trick thought shit looked fishy.

This shit just got fishier.

Then shit got mad real.

Trick was calling the whole system racist.

Trick seems to think the whole game was unfairly stacked against the prosecution, beginning with the jury.

After a break from politics to talk about his lovely brunch (corn on the cob, spaghetti, garlic bread, and chicken breast strips?) and a quick movie break (Pootie Tang), he got back to the issue at hand.

Trick definitely has a problem with that juror who was signing a book deal about her sequestering experience. (But that deal has

since been dropped.)

But perhaps this jury stacked with "cramping," "thirsty hoes" could have done right if someone bothered to properly explain manslaughter to them.

He went on and on about it, but it turns out he's not the only one. Perhaps this dark cloud has a silver lining?
