I sure hope Zimmerman is allowed to keep his concealed carry permit.

spawn73: abfalter: I don't want to see Zimmerman killed.

I do want to see him off the streets and sitting in a jail cell.

I want him to be cleared of guilt, having acted in self defence.

Also, I want to Twitter morons making death threads being put in jail instead.

If that were really the case Zimmerman wouldn't be on trial, and Treyvon would still be munching Skittles.

/just saying

I agree with you. The point is that we don't appoint ourselves judge, jury and executioner and hassle people who are walking around on the street, minding their own business.

The Republicans are being frightened little girls. If you have a problem, call the cops. If you see someone walking home from the store, go home and watch TV.


The same cops that folks on Fark deride as pigs and jack-booted thugs?

Let me see if I got this straight, the whiplash is killing me...

Cops enforce laws against popular illegal activities == assholes/jerks/pigs/jack-booted thugs.

Cops enforce laws against bogeymen and perceived villains == white knights/awesome

You also realize, of course, that even the Supreme Court has ruled that police have no obligation to protect individuals, and it is not the job of police to act as security, but rather merely to investigate and enforce the law, right?

/why do I even bother?

Absolutely not (Unless "Nay Nay" were on the jury, but that's a separate issue). Then again, I don't wait it doled out by a self-appointed neighborhood watch with a CCW that ignored the advice of a 911 dispatcher.

Where he'll be killed within the first week, with the added bonus of higher costs to the taxpayer.


well a week in jail isn't too long to have to pay for his upkeep. just think of the money we'd save by having him killed.

I think it is pretty sad that the media and public outcry can condemn a man even when all the evidence points to him being assaulted and acting in self-defense. If it wasn't a 17-year-old kid and some 30-year-old guy would people be that angry about it? They questioned him for hours and all the evidence pointed towards self-defense. Sure it might lead to some reform of the law, but that could have happened without condemning a man. Even if he is found innocent I wouldn't be surprised to see his obituary in the paper at some point.

not only the advice of the dispatcher but ignoring the instructions given to him when he took the neighborhood watch course from the local police. they tell them. do not follow suspects. do not carry guns when you're patrolling. he knew better. he placed himself in that situation, willingly and knowingly it was against all advice and instruction he'd received.

It's fascinating to watch people try and twist this into a partisan D vs R issue. FWIW, Zimmerman is a registered Democrat.

Holy shiat. How easy would it be for a prosecutor to get warrants, send them to twitter, receive the personal information for these retards, and rack up the check marks in the "win" column?

SYG is the ostensible reason why the police claimed his actions were legal and did not arrest him in the first place, so I am afraid it is rather relevant.
 
2012-04-23 09:42:14 AM  

Facetious_Speciest: Zimmerman has completed his chameleon-like shift from white ("I shot him in self-defense, officer!") to brown ("I'm a mestizo who loves other minorities and tutors kids in the ghetto!") to black, and is hiding in plain sight in darkest Orlando. It's his masterstroke; the Zimmerman Gambit. And they never saw it coming.

Go back to rapiers.

Now THAT would be fun.
 
2012-04-23 09:42:56 AM  
Sooo, is something like this covered by your free speech or not?

We just had something like this happen when the police arrested the wrong person for raping and killing a child and it became known who they arrested (because the idiots did it with the media present)

Calls came to kill him and to storm the police station ect. Now there are a lot more investigations against the ones openly calling to kill someone. Because that is not covered under our version of freedom of opinion.
 
2012-04-23 09:43:10 AM  

gimmegimme: I think I speak for the majority when I say that we are glad that Zimmerman is going to have a trial and that the rule of law will remain SOP in Florida. No one deserves to be stalked and hunted in a suburban neighborhood. Even though I'm not sure Zimmerman did the right thing, I do hope that a judge and jury can decide the case.

This is America. We keep the peace with laws and professional police officers.


Dude, this is FARK. If you want to make a sane statement, you need to do it somewhere else.

hailin: I think it is pretty sad that the media and public outcry can condemn a man even when all the evidence points to him being assaulted and acting in self-defense


no all the evidence points to him pursuing Trayvon, confronting him and then as Trayvon is standing his ground he kills him.
the phone call to the girlfriend proves that he didn't ambush Zimmerman. She heard him say why are you following me? What's your problem?
The neighbors heard arguing and yelling going on for several minutes. He was not blindsided while returning to his truck. Why would he let this "asshole who always gets away" escape? Why would he break off the chase? and then why would Trayvon then turn around after trying to avoid a confrontation then seek him out? You're asking the jury to believe that both men changed their minds at the same time. I'm sorry but I'm not buying ZImmerman's I was headed back to the truck and was ambushed" story.
 
2012-04-23 09:46:20 AM  
Okay a bit creepy here. I had a dream last night where he snuck out of jail during a city wide riot caused by the Joker. (I know right?) And during the riot his head was based through a store window and he was shot. The dream then lead to me trying to get home and myself having to help the nephew from the Red Green show deal with a baby he was left to baby sit. All of these things were on the TV this weekend.

If he could afford the $150,000 bail (or is that before the bond? Still, $15,000), he could afford to leave the country before he was charged.

Not that I'm saying I wish he did, just that he's a dumbass for not.

SYG is so poorly written that no matter who wins the fight they can hide behind it.

Martin stood his ground to defend himself against a perceived threat.
Zimmerman stood his ground when he was attacked.
Neither had a duty to retreat. Both had justification to use violence under the law. Neither would be legally responsible regardless of who ended up dead.

That being said, I hold Zimmerman morally responsible, because with out his poor judgement the whole situation wouldn't have happened.

At the very least, he REALLY needs to consider moving after this. Even if (however unlikely) he's telling the truth on all counts and there turns out to be video of the entire event AND a notarized statement from Martin saying he was planning to rape and murder a white hispanic guy that weekend, his ass needs to move a few states away.

bullshiat. he told 911 he was pursuing him. that he was running. we know he had the gun. we know he shot him. we know there was a struggle we know there was a few minutes of arguing then a few minutes of scuffling and Trayvon screaming for help. then a gunshot. we know trayvon was on the phone with the girlfriend when the confrontation started. we know he told her he was walking fast trying to avoid the confrontation.

the rest is all Zimmeran's word. and he has every reason in the world to lie to save his ass.
 
2012-04-23 09:56:10 AM  

gimmegimme: Why didn't Trayvon have the right to Stand His Ground?


That's a great question, and one I'd like an answer to.

For the uninformed, Stand Your Ground provides that an individual, reasonably anticipating unlawful violence upon their person, in a place where they have a lawful right to be, does not have to retreat before defending themselves.

This is the law in most states. It's been the law in California for over 100 years. Stand Your Ground statutes are only necessary in states that had a Duty To Retreat provision in law. Such a standard means that, when faced with unlawful violence, one must retreat before defending oneself, if safe retreat is possible. After several domestic violence victims were prosecuted because "there was a safe method of retreat" available to them that they did not take when beaten in their own home, Stand Your Ground was passed with the intention of allowing those women to defend themselves in their own homes against their battering husbands without having to worry about being prosecuted later.

So, if we're going to propose that there is a version of this story that Trayvon Martin was entitled to a Stand Your Ground defense, we must satisfy the elements of the law:
- Was Trayvon Martin lawfully present in a gated community he did not live in, 250 miles from home?
- Did Trayvon Martin, high school athlete, reasonably expect unlawful violence upon his person from a shorter, overweight man?

At this point, Trayvon may have noticed that Zimmerman had a unknown object under his clothes, which might be a (lawfully in this case) concealed firearm, or a bottle of tea, or a blackberry. A bulge under clothing does not rise to the level of "reasonable expectation of violence", but it could be a factor in his suspicion that Zimmerman may be armed. Of course, that works both ways: is that "bag of skittles and tea" in Trayvon's hoodie a concealed weapon, or the solution to a case of the munchies?

Let's propose a hypothesis: If there was no Stand Your Ground law in Florida, and Martin had defended himself successfully again unlawful violence started by Zimmerman, bloodying Zimmerman's nose and bashing he head against the concrete, Martin would be prosecutable. Why? Because he's a high school athlete and Zimmerman is shorter and overweight, and they were outside with no barriers to Martin running in complete safety away from the altercation. Under the old standards of Duty To Retreat, Martin would be required to flee before making any attempts at defensive force. Only with Stand Your Ground would Martin have been in the clear for defending himself in a situation where Zimmerman initiates a violent encounter.

Come on, now. As a self-appointed law enforcement officer, Zimmerman had the duty to investigate a citizen walking home on the sidewalk in the early evening. This is an extremely suspicious act. Martin was even talking on his cell phone. Zimmerman had no way to know whether Martin was talking to al-Qaida without investigating.

Welcome to your daily Zimmerman Troll Thread.
 
2012-04-23 09:56:44 AM  
I just can't even comment on this case anymore. The media has muddled it so much that people think they know everything about it when they know nothing. People who are trying to debate the case on the internet are getting the most simple facts wrong about it.
 
2012-04-23 09:57:04 AM  

hailin: Even if he is found innocent I wouldn't be surprised to see his obituary in the paper at some point.


Not surprising at all, since the Florida legislature has provided a get-out-of-jail-free card for murder. Anyone can pursue Zimmerman in order to "stand their ground" against him just as he pursued and "stood his ground" against Martin. And the Neo-Nazis who have come to the neighborhood from out of state will no doubt be "standing their ground" against the neighborhood's non-white residents...Florida is going to be a shooting gallery for a while, at least.
