ChuDogg: spongeboob: Why yes I am going to believe a report as totally accurate that has the age of Zimmerman as 3 years younger than all other reports. Do you have anywhere else where John says the same thing?27 Feb 2012This was one of the first reports. Literally the very next morning.You're going to say the witness was planted because the reporter rushed a few details out? Yeah, that doesn't indicate cognitive dissonance. Not at all.
Sarsin: ChuDogg: That's very, very, good advice.Is it legally required?No.But you can't claim self defense if you go after people and are not a law enforcement officer.
Weaver95: Res ipsa loquitur
spongeboob: No I am saying if the reporter got something as simple as the age of the shooter wrong he/she may have misquoted the witness
Millennium: Well, someone's got to defend him if he wants a lawyer. But if he thinks he can somehow get by without one, well, so much the better: it'll only make his conviction even more likely, and no defense attorneys will have to give up a piece of their souls to defend the indefensible.
Mavent: osafer: If you don't think Al and Jessie are some of the biggest racebaiters in this country you are being dishonest with yourself need to turn in your Hood and Torch, because Klavern Local #356 just doesn't think you're their kind of Klansman any more...I love the way a certain kind of idiot (like, say the ones in this thread) love to bring up a couple of silly things that Jackson or Sharpton did over 20 years ago to justify their own innate racism regarding the Zimmerman/Martin case.
MisterLoki: netweavr: Weaver95: Zimmerman seems...unwise.He's a 28 year old kid who has half the country ready to lynch him.28 year old kid?Alrighty.
Nutsac_Jim: Obama got jailed for Solyndra?

mooseyfate: HellRaisingHoosier: Ok, I've gone out of my to not give a fark about this, but it's popping up everywhere so I thought I would read the article ... Is this accurate?Some kid attacks a security guard, and breaks his nose during the attack -- so this security guard shoots the kid and kills him.If that's correct, then good. I'm glad the kid got shot.If it's not. I still don't really care./pro-deathThe meat of the entire controversy (which has since been hijacked utterly by racists and bigots on both sides of that shiatty fence) is that Zimmerman claimed he was "standing his ground" under the state's "Stand Your Ground" law that basically says that a law-abiding has no duty to back down from a hostile person. Unfortunately, it's since come to light that Zimmerman was infact NOT standing his ground, he was actively pursuing this kid. There are no "Pursue and Confront" laws (that have come up) in Florida, so the simple fact that he's not denying murdering this kid coupled with the fact that he was NOT standing his ground as he first admitted means that he's a murderer and should be in jail, preferably for a long time. This isn't a case of a law-abiding citizen getting screwed by the system and the media. This is a case about a law-abiding citizen getting followed and shot down on his way home from the store, for being black and wearing a hoodie, none-the-less.
tonguedepressor: Racial debates are the most interesting type because they nearly always strike a chord in everyone. 700 comments strong about a killer/vigilante/hero dropping lawyers he never had, to defend him for a crime he hasn't been accused of inside a court of law.So, how racist are you? And And do you define your racist belief out of the belief that the other race is more racist than you?Damn, its got potential to be a loong hot summer.
Carth: All signs point to Zimmerman being guilty: just like the accused in the Amadou Diallo shooting and Duke lacrosse case. Why can't people wait for courts to decide whether someone is guilty before hanging them in the court of public opinion?
9beers: renders the testimony of multiple people null and void.
NightOwl2255: 9beers: renders the testimony of multiple people null and void.Testimony? There you go again...Oh, in case anyone forgot:
9beers: Weaver95: witnesses are unreliable at best. ask anyone who's ever taken a psych 101 class about that sort of thing....Yep, multiple police officers, paramedics and an eyewitness are all lying to cover for Zimmerman.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Mavent: Nutsac_Jim: Obama got jailed for Solyndra?One thing I love about these threads is that they allow me to refine my /ignore list.Add me to it please. I want to be ignored by every person who thinks its a good idea to brag about putting people on ignore.
karmaceutical: Man, this guy is playing this thing all wrong. All wrong. And WTF is going on with calling into Hannity. Is he gunning for some twisted martyr status? Fox News job??
ChuDogg: spongeboob: No I am saying if the reporter got something as simple as the age of the shooter wrong he/she may have misquoted the witnessOh I gotcha.Watch the video instead (new window)

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Creepy. Stalker much?
keithgabryelski: sure, but if you don't follow the advice -- hell if you just get out of your car and follow a child around a corner -- and then get into an altercation where you shoot and kill a child walking home from the store, don't be surprised if people wonder why you aren't in jail.
freewill: I have a suspicion that when we finally get an opportunity to really hear this guy We've heard him speak on the 911 call. for himself. that we're going to find out that, bless his heart, He's just not that bright.

Everyone still has to go to work. Everyone's life is still boring with nothing to do, no dreams to reach, and no goals to accomplish.Wife won't touch you. Son's an idiot. Daughter dresses like a slut. Same old same old.Just waiting to die...

EighthundredmillionthFarker: The lawyers lose contact with him for two whole days, so they turn tail and run?They're getting out while they can. Obviously they've seen the real facts of the case and they're giving up all of their free publicity. I'll be surprised if Zimmerman doesn't stay hidden for the rest of his life. He's probably living in Mexico already.
theflatline: Of course there is NBC editing the call and showing pics of Trayvon as a child.Not that he should of been killed but it was a slow news month so someone had to get the presses rolling.
Misconduc: So did they ever release where trayvon was shot? wanted to make a "boom headshot" gif
Nutsac_Jim: If he lost sight of him, he isn't actively pursing anyone. He could be walking around the neighborhood, or walking back to his car. Last time I checked, walking back to your car is illegal, and if someone assaults you.while doing so, bang bang no more Mr Tough Guy.There is no evidence that Zimmerman followed Martin after the officer told him that Zimmerman did not need to follow Martin.place.
YouPeopleAreCrazy: MattyFridays: So the guy who is keeping an eye on the neighborhood sees a strange kid walking around.And that justifies shooting the kid? Please.
ChuDogg: When you report things like, where Zimmerman's location was and where the altercation occurred, and what the actual 911 call said, what witness statements said, of course that narrative all comes crashing down.
tonguedepressor: Dude! Don't give up on your Rap dream, its just now finally starting to catch on. Plus your daughter will no doubt spit out a grandchild in a yr or so and you wanna be around for that.I'm in your near same shoes and only avoided being a premature GFather by the grace of an early miscarriage.
