You know how I know these guys are terrible lawyers who don't know what the hell they're doing?

It took them this long to realize that they could scam racist yokels.

I read in another article that you can comment in forums to show your support, but that racist comments will be removed upon notification. This sounds like a bad plan. Why wouldn't you just approve every comment rather than scrub what you know will be some dumb shiat that could potentially damages your client's public image through association?

I can't go to the site right now. Websense says it's a security risk.

I thought they'd only closed it temporarily to get a firm hold on where the money was going, to avoid contempt of court punishments. I can't imagine their long-term plan was "say no to the cash cow."

I'm sure there are some people that donated to GZ out of concern that his conviction would impinge on their gun rights, as opposed to anything to do with race. I mean, I wouldn't bet MY money on it, but I figure.

I think you mean heroic defenders of the honor of George Zimmerman and his God given rights to protect his property and life from a no good vicious THUG who attacked without provocation from the dark shadows where he so easily blended in.
 
2012-05-04 01:23:33 PM
Who cares? I'd rather donors pay for his defense than the state.

I don't see why they'd advise to take it down in the first place, if people want to give the guy money they might as well let them.

Good to see that the media's attempt to make this whole Trayvon thing all about racism successful. Im sure it's KKK and Skin heads donating money to a fat mexican.
 
2012-05-04 01:25:13 PM
They can raise all the money in the world - it still won't be enough.

Zimmerman is a nightmare client. He can't keep his mouth shut and his lies about what happened are starting to surface.

That's funny...the only thing racist that seems to be evolving from the Zimmerman Self Defense incident is all the black mobs beating up white people...all in the name of "Justice For Trayvon"

And, Zimmerman is part Black...he is even more Black than Dred Scott or Spike Lee

First of all, I'm saddened that a prosecutor I used to respect is now leaking to the media "inconsistencies." Those are facts to be saved for trial, and she is only prejudicing and already inflamed jury pool. Shame on her.

Second of all, find me one god damned client who doesn't run their mouths, talk to the cops, and writes letters? They ALL do that. Every single god damned client opens their mouth and sticks their foot in. It happens. It happens with EVERY client. So no, Zimmerman is not a nightmare client. He actually seems to be a rather decent client considering he 1) fired those stupid yokels that tried to say they were his lawyers and 2) hasn't royally farked up or gone on a TV show.

Gee...maybe we can get the Zimmerman Supporters to gang up and beat up some black folks in the name of "Justice For Zimmerman"....just like blacks are doing to whites in the name of "Justice For Trayvon"
 
2012-05-04 01:31:15 PM
just means they shut down his site, and put one up that deposits money directly into the lawyers accounts.

then the lawyers will buy donuts for the cops, the cops will testify "i saw treyvon martin attack mr zimmerman and mr zimmerman shot him in self defense"

the cop will then add to his testimony further by saying " whoa.... sugar frosting INSIDE a sugar frosted donut"

then they lawyers will keep the spare money and begin interviewing the secret service hookers.

Maybe, but between the comments I've seen on local message boards and the people I hear talking about the case, I don't think it's unfair that some people have come to the conclusion that racism is a significant factor in the support of Zimmerman in this case.

I mean, I don't know what happened, I just think it's obvious enough that something is fishy that it should go to a fair trial so that his guilt or innocence can be determined. But, man, I'll tell you.... at least around these here parts the consensus between old people and hicks seems to be "white guy shot a black kid for thuggin', and that's a-okay with me regardless of what the black thug was doing". That and "if he didn't want to get shot, he shouldn't have been dressed like a thug".

That and the gun-fellating NRA nuts who just assume that any homeowner who ever shoots anybody anywhere and claims self defense must be in the right and should be commended without a second thought.

So, yea, I really have no trouble believing that a significant portion of the donations going to Zimmerman are because of racism. Which is fine with me. Let racist idiots and their money be parted, just as long as the trial's fair, I don't give a shiat if a bunch of angry white people want to give away their dough. He deserves quality representation as much as any defendant.
 
2012-05-04 01:36:50 PM
also i wonder how much ad money this thread will generate for drew.

if there isnt one already, there should be a tabloid like add on the side bar that says "new info in trayvon martin case!"

then it goes to a webpage where you can buy pepper spray and tasers. you know... a force appropriate response to being attacked by a big-ass black guy. yes ive read xkcd.

then drew will have more money to buy more alcohol to spill on more server, causing a need to buy more servers, which also causes drew more stress and the need for more alcohol which causes.

Oh... if I'd known you were an idiot I wouldn't have bothered to respond to your initial comment.

Kindly point out where in the Florida code it says you can chase an unarmed person minding his own business down the street, admit you're doing it to a 911 operator, ignore the operator's instruction to desist, and then shoot the person you've been chasing because they turn to confront you.

/ actually, don't bother, I don't feel like having this discussion again with another moron who thinks self defense means "ending a fight you started".

Then if you actually can read and understand Florida you would be in favor of Zimmermans prosecution since Zimmerman committed the act of Assault upon Martin meaning that it was actually Martin Standing his Ground!

This is no different that is I try to rob someone and they pull a gun on me And I shoot them instead, i cannot claim "stand Your Ground" because I was the person victimizing whom I claim is my aggressor.

It was during the initial assessment of bail. They were trying to make the argument that Zimmerman was poor while he was receiving $200k+ of donations.

Where in Florida Law does it say someone has the right to follow someone around in their car at night, causing them to notice you and flee. Then try to track/chase down said person with a concealed gun. And then if/when that person defends themselves (as they most likely feel pretty threatened since you've been following them around) give you the right to shoot them.

Just curious if you could point that one out to me.

Well said. I don't doubt that some people are doing it for racist reasons, but the implication that it's all or even most of the donors isn't very convincing without any evidence. Furthermore, there is an implication that the crime itself was racist, for which no evidence exists either. Adding race into this nonsense, on either side, is an asinine distraction.

What's trolling is when people here and elsewhere see someone citing Florida law and citing Harvard law professors et al. as to the facts of the case and then they are "herp derpy you're racist because you disagree with me."

The crime wasn't racially motivated, but the resulting furor certainly is.
