9beers: If Zimmerman had a history of chasing down and assaulting black kids, that would be relevant.


The one time he tried it, he got his ass kicked. Too bad he couldn't take his ass kicking like a man and had to shoot and kill a kid to get him to stop.

Here's Mr. Zimmerman's history with reporting incidents in his neighborhood.

Bad luck with room mates, strange cars, kids, and open garage doors.

It's a gawd damn shame that a man can't stalk and kill a violent thug in this country without catching shiat for it! Damn, I long for the good ol days when folks knew their place and and didn't come messing around places they didn't belong.

I was wrong, you've been acting like a fool for a while now. Sorry for accusing you of using facts to back up your beliefs.

Headso: I also feel that way he probably technically acted in a legal way. But he was the one who instigated the whole situation from the start. I think the only way they got a chance of a case is if they can prove the person yelling for help was the teen, that might be enough to convince a jury.


Indeed, because of his actions an unarmed teenager is dead. As far as the court of public opinion goes, I'm in the `he''s a racist wanna-be cop' camp, but as far as the law is concerned, I'm in the `he's going to walk, they don't have a case' camp.

Not the first time this sentiment has been raised in these threads. It still seems about as ignorant and full of false machismo as following a kid around with a gun.

There is no "manly" way to let someone beat your ass and hope they don't kill you. This isn't telly, this is a world where there's no such thing as a fair fight, and getting struck in the head can kill you. It's why intelligent people avoid such altercations to the best of their ability.

I'm in those same camps too.

The way the SYG law is designed, it protects pussies like Zimmerman who talk big game but can't walk the walk.

Then again, the GOP and NRA designed this law and they're essentially the same when it comes to not walking the walk and talking the talk.

I don't even think Zimmerman is racist, I think he's a busy body douche who gets too involved in other people's business, anyone who ever owned a house has one of these kinds of asshats on your block. Usually not this extreme though. I think half the people in this thread swinging from Zimmermans nuts are racist as the day is long though.

BigBooper: Silly Jesus: EighthundredmillionthFarker: Sorry. There still aren't any visible cuts on that photo, just blood. How about a photo of the cuts? What is the time stamp on it? Why are police taking crappy cellphone pictures for evidence? If it's such damning evidence towards Martin, then why wasn't the picture released a month ago?

Bullshiat.

It was a picture taken by a witness, not the police. The police haven't released their photos to the media yet.

Also, today, the prosecution stated that there were indeed "contusions" on the back of Zimmerman's head. And the defense brought into play their medical report showing that ZImmerman's nose was broken.

2012-04-20 04:57:29 PM

WhyKnot: I disagree on the self-defense claim shifting the access to medical records. Zimmerman is the accused, and his 'defense' is self-defense. He still is viewed as the criminal defendant.

With respect to my bringing up the police in example (a), the DA is a direct extension of the law enforcment investigation, so if the police can have the medical records So can the DA.

I was using the police as a basis to establish the DA could have them


Ah, got it.

As a criminal defendent then they have to go through the discovery process. Law enforcement could not ask for the records for continuation of care for his injuries, or to try and track him down, but they should still be able to provide law enforcement with the description and extent of the injuries which can then be turned over to the DA.
 
2012-04-20 04:57:52 PM

Headso: Do you think that "blacks don't care about black on black crime" is a fact? If so I can see why you feel he has been true to the facts, if you don't believe it is true not sure how you can claim the high road there. And maybe it was some other guy who implied Martin was a violent thug, maybe not though I don't feel like going through all your posts to see.


As for is that a fact? Yes. However, you've got to keep in mind that the statement is not necessarily an absolute. There are a large number of blacks who do only raise the issue here because it's not black on black. So "some" or "many" blacks would maybe have been more apt. Maybe he doesn't feel like tip-toeing around your sensibilities, and in fact mocks them with intentionally vague comments...but if you'd have read my reply above you'd have seen that as well. Maybe he took it for granted that the reasonable readers would append "some" or "many" as an unspoken commonality.

But, as I said, it's not an absolute, he did not say "All blacks". It would have been an entirely different situation had he done that. But you're jumping to the assumption that he's racist, instead of asking for clarification.

No, I'm the one you accused of implying that. I can't be held accountable for your failure in reading comprehension and misunderstanding of context though(which i already explained....TWICE). Often as you do it, I can't even blame education. I mean they went out of their way to put you on the shortbus and treat you "special" but they can only do so much, right? Technology as it is, there are no real solutions to your limitations.

CarbonCarby: Carry on.


Np, it is difficult to sort through these threads, and indeed, even the media. A lot of misinformation in both. It'd be easier if I hadn't cleared my ignore lists just to have some fun with the retards.

Degenz: Silly Jesus: There are a few key questions that just about everyone with a law degree has said will be the crux of the case. Today, the prosecution answered all of those most relevant questions in a way that favored ZImmerman. I don't see how you can call that insignificant and inconsequential. Did you even read what they said?

I understood what the hearing was about, but the witness for the prosecution was under oath, nonetheless, and he stated that they had no evidence to contradict the self-defense claims of Zimmerman.

And I was responding to your comment that the prosecution has nothing, not what might happen in subsequent proceedings. You seem to think the state presented its entire case today and is somehow forever prohibited in future proceedings from entering new or corroborating evidence . It may very will be that they don't have the requisite evidence to overcome Zimmerman's self-defense claim, but that is an issue to be decided on another day.

It's not at all unusual for investigations to be ongoing after an arrest and charges have been filed. The prosecution is free to continue to gather evidence for quite some time to come now. And there is still an immunity hearing to be had, at the point Zimmerman will have an opportunity to force the state to prove its case a bit more conclusively.

Again, it's just a bond hearing. Don't make too much of it.


I stand by my assertion. They have nothing right now, unless the prosecutions' investigator perjured himself, and I highly doubt that at this point in the case there is any late breaking dramatic evidence forthcoming to the prosecution.

I'm going to reach for a justification of Zimmerman's attack on a police officer and in the next breath I'll condemn a 17 year old for getting suspended for school. As a matter of fact, I'll use the 17 year olds suspension from school as an indication that he may have deserved to die while I disregard the violent past of the person who killed him. I'll put a cherry on top by making sweeping generalizations about black people. Then, I'll wonder why people think I might be a bigot and I'll whine about being oppressed. That's what I'll do.

Um...yes?

The police aren't there to babysit your neighbors' children, they're there to gather information about crimes and maybe pursue suspected criminals. Unattended children in a residential area are not breaking any laws, no matter how much I wish they were, because, you know, we all know who the problem is, it's that fat fundie down the street that "homeschools" eight farking Quiverfull monsters that do absolutely nothing all day but run up and down the street screaming for no apparent reason, and fark is it annoying, especially given that I keep odd hours, but I can't call the police over it, because there's no crime involved, and besides, calling police is usually the least-ideal way to resolve anything.

Wait, what was I talking about? They're farking screaming again. I swear, when the zombies rise, I won't have a farking clue because of these farking kids. They scream like their faces are being eaten off all the godsdamned time. When I was a child, this shiat simply wouldn't have been tolerated, and I lived in a rural part of a third-world country without neighbors for a mile or two.

Anyway. Back to Martin/Zimmerman.
 
2012-04-20 05:06:57 PM

When the story first came out I also thought he was a racist guy, especially based on the initial media coverage. Then as more stuff came out and his actions up to this point make him seem to be a control freak cop wannabe kinda guy who continually gets in trouble injecting himself into situations. I think the karma of now having to be the one worried about vigilantism is pretty nice though.

Heh. CSB: I remember this African American History class I took. It was very interesting and the reading was so good, I never sold the books; I still have them after twenty-one years. There was a couple of jocks in the class that needed help with some of the words and whatnot I helped get through. Then the guest speaker day arrived and he claimed that racism is so pervasive in our society that using the word black is racist. He even said the phrase, "the pot calling the kettle black" is racist. I raised my hand and said it's not racist because they're both actually black in color. We went back and forth for a bit and he even asserted that African Americans are inherently incapable of racism in the end.
