Jon Snow: Tatsuma 2012-04-11 09:38:38 AM: Trayvon's own father confirmed it wasn't trayvon crying for help.


[i42.tinypic.com image 500x400]


After the police played it for him he said it wasn't.

Days later after coaching from his lawyers when it was played by the network he said it was.

Which do you think was the more honest answer?
 
2012-04-11 10:19:50 AM  
I don't think it would be outside the realm of reason to stop referring to Treyvon as a murdered child and call him a murdered teenager instead. That'd take the wind out of the sails of those going "zomgz, unreasonable hyperbole!!!!!' while maintaining the validity of any other points one might be making.

Trying to use an emotionally-laden term to support one's point is bound to fail, particularly in an issue like this when there's strong feelings on both sides.

/innocent until proven guilty, and all that. Though it does seem poor judgement was used.

HotWingConspiracy: Silly Jesus: HotWingConspiracy: Silly Jesus: the Philadelphia incident WAS reported

When? By who? To who?

At the time. Not sure. DOJ.

The DOJ investigated it and subsequently stopped with no explanation.

No, they explained it.

Why are you so hung up on someone complaining, anyway? It's a federal felony with or without a complaint.

Furthermore, the lack of a complaint does not mean that no intimidation occurred

It's kind of pointless to talk about it with no verified reports of intimidation. Maybe they guy just wasn't very intimidating.


Under the law his mere presence was intimidation, therefore, voter intimidation, a felony on the federal level, did occur.
 
2012-04-11 10:23:17 AM  

Fromageball: t's funny how some people think it's somehow abnormal for Trayvon to have done anything other than cooperate with the strange man who was following him.


That's just it: He *DIDN'T* have to cooperate. He had every right to say "leave me alone" and keep on walking. Nothing Zimmerman could have done about it except to follow him and guide the police to him.

What he didn't have the right to do is initiate a physical confrontation. We don't *KNOW* if he did that or not, based upon what is publicly known at this point, but even if Zimmerman initiated that, it still looks like Zimmerman might have a decent case for self-defense based on Florida state law (which doesn't significantly differ from other state laws in that regard).

you seem to be stuck on the no reports verifying intimidation yet...

"In April 2009 Bartie Bull, a former civil rights lawyer who was serving as a poll watcher at the polling station where the incident occurred, submitted an affidavit at Justice's request supporting the lawsuit, stating that he considered it to have been the most severe instance of voter intimidation he had ever encountered." (new window)


So he submitted an statement after the fact. Doesn't really explain why it wasn't a big deal when it was actually occurring.

Don't you?

Is this something that was actually widely reported in the first place?

Did the lawyers coach the independent audio experts as well? How far do their machinations extend?

Look, I don't really have a dog in this fight. I wasn't there during the incident, and I am not going to say Zimmerman is guilty or not based on gossip that's being mongered by the press.

I was just glancing through this thread and saw some pretty pathetic behavior and claims being made by someone with a long history of such.

If that is true, my mistake.

Silverstaff: The posthumous character assassination of Trevon Martin has been incredible, all to somehow make it acceptable that he was shot in the street by a vigilante who apparently couldn't stand that kids walked around his neighborhood since he presumed they were all criminals.


Pointing out trayvon's miscounduct is in bad taste, but when media is only showing ppictures of him @ 13 and quoting what a great kid he is it is excusable, imho.

At least it isnly lying about "vigilante's" and making un-supported claims about why he was shot.

Like I said, he's only 15, but quite large for his age. He's even been recruited by his H.S. football team, but broke his leg playing baseball 2 years ago, because he absolutely goes for broke. I'd almost pay for it. He's a freshman this year, but had a senior up against the wall for pinching his nipple last year. You *might* best him, but you'd certainly never call him a pussy again.

From your non-propaganda link:

The officer interviewed Samir Shabazz, Jerry Jackson and a number of other people at the scene. The officer concluded that Jerry Jackson was indeed a certified poll watcher and decided that he was entitled to remain. The local authorities took no further action against Mr. Jackson as they concluded that his activities did not rise to the level of intimidation

Nobody said he still holds that position, they said he "confirmed" it wasn't trayvon. If the reports on the police reports are to believed then that is a true statement. Doesn't matter if he later chages his opinion.

Tatsuma: I love that people keep referring to him as a kid and as a child, when he was taller, possibly weighed more than Zimmerman, worked out and had been in physical altercations in the past.


Zimmerman had been arrested twice for physical violence as a grown man. Where's Trayvon's arrest record?

My father-in-law was part of a neighborhood watch program too. They were NOT ARMED. And did NOT LEAVE THEIR VEHICLE. That was on advice from the police. This idiot was armed and left his vehicle to pursue a suspect. In the end, an unarmed teenager was shot dead by someone who was not law enforcement, many yards away from his vehicle, and had every right to be in the neighborhood since he was visiting his father. If you are armed with a gun, you avoid confrontation at all costs. Why? Because the likelyhood of your gun coming into play is massive, either by yourself or against yourself. You stay in your vehicle and wait for the cops to arrive. Any other actions will lead to something just like this: someone thinking they are being followed (by someone who in turn thinks they are pursuing a suspect). Both sides think they are defending themselves. This is the outcome. Manslaughter is the right charge here.

Except that's absolutely not what I said and out of context. I said that back when Irving wrote "G-d Bless America", in 1918, Jews were treated in America just as bad as African-Americans were treated in the years post-Segregation, maybe worse in fact, but that it didn't stop Jews like him to see all the opportunities of America and still say "G-d bless America" unlike Wright who never grew up around it and still damns America for what happened in the past.

I eventually buckled in and admitted that this statement was in fact wrong, that I knew more about Jewish History in American than African-American History and my statement was short-sighted.

Obviously the DOJ disagrees with you as to whether an actual crime was committed or not.

Furthermore, the lack of a complaint does not mean that no intimidation occurred.

An overly superstitious person may be intimidated by a crack in the sidewalk outside the polling place. Is that crack committing a crime? The presence of intimidation does not necessarily indicate that a crime has been committed.

It's the job of the DOJ. They even reprimanded one of the panthers for having his weapon at the polling station. They banned him from being near a polling station with his weapon as punishment. That's some pretty harsh punishment since that's already the law. But he didn't do anything wrong...

The fact is that the DOJ knew about felonies committed at the federal level and had them on videotape and refused to act.

I certainly have been paying attention. Zimmerman has gone into hiding and his attorneys have quit because he is screwing up big time. He's in trouble and he has panicked. The prosecutor in this case is going to have to charge Zimmerman with something. She knows this and, if seems, so does he. If she doesn't all hell is going to break loose and the DoJ will take over the case and probably investigate her office, too. This case has become political and sometimes that is a good thing.
