They also want to ban, shot, gun, killed, dead, followed, stalk, chase, black, 17 years old, unarmed, and assholes.
 
2013-06-07 12:08:59 PM  
So then he was simply a murderer out hunting

How about if I change the way the words relate to one another? Like, say, instead of "wannabe cop," I could make it "self-appointed cop" and "wanna be vigilante."

And are synonyms OK? Like, could I use "cold-blooded killer" instead of "murderer"?

I just want to make sure I understand the parameters.

One one side of the argument, we have people who think Zimmerman is innocent. They point to known facts to back up their opinion.

On the other side, we have those who think he's guilty. The use speculation and assumptions to back up their opinion.


3...2...1...fight!

Wait..there's a dead teenager right? So yeah. he's guilty. It remains to be seen what charges he's convicted for, but he killed an unarmed teenager.

Buy you know, you should defend him. That doesn't make you look creepy at all.

And on another side are those who wait for the trial to lay out the available facts.

If you're trying to claim bias, you either did a spectacular job or a lousy job.  I guess it depends on which side you're on.

How about "Gung ho self-starter" or "responsible gun owner"?
 
2013-06-07 01:32:41 PM  
It might just be in everyone's interests for him to plead guilty to some lesser offense, like manslaughter or negligent homicide, and spend some time doing community service and never owning a gun again.

The request also asks that prosecutors be prohibited from using these phrases during opening statements:

"He got out of the car after the police (or dispatcher) told him not to."


That seems like a fact to me.  Unless they are disputing the sequence of events.  In the phone call the dispatcher tells him not to get out of the car.  Later during the phone call he says he got out of the car.
 
2013-06-07 01:41:04 PM  
Well there's such thing as "reasonable doubt" and in this case, in a weird twist of logic, the prosecutor has to prove that he wasn't justified in killing the kid. So he's getting off. I spend half my year in the area where it happened so when the verdict comes in I'll be in my heavily fortified rec room.

The punishment for manslaughter is community service now?

If I was the judge I'd rather sentence someone to 1000 hours of community service than a year in prison.

I just hope the trial is over quickly.  I am sick of seeing his disgusting murderer-face.

But had Zimmerman not defended himself and been beaten to death, you'd be okay with that, right? After all, you know that Zimmerman chased down Trayvon and attempted to apprehend him, right?

His lawyers had a mainline to his cash, these guys need time for frequent fundraisers to keep the grift going.

George hasn't missed any meals though.
 
2013-06-07 02:08:19 PM  
Does Al Sharpton have his intimidation squad established? I heard there's going to be up to 8,000 people raising a ruckus demanding that Zimmerman be lynched outside the courthouse.
 
2013-06-07 02:08:43 PM  
I don't think people give enough of a shiat about anything to riot. the Rodney King verdict was literally 20 years ago.

Apprehend him for what? Walking down a street? Chasing down somebody and apprehending them when they haven't done anything is assault.

He murdered a Black teenager for no better reason than he felt like it, that promotes him to an Honorary White Guy in their book

Oh shiat, this has finally started, time to stop watching HLN for the next 6 months. So my choices are Fox, CNN, MSNBC, Bloomberg, CNBC.  Fox and CNN are out as they will be going wall to wall just like HLN. Bloomberg and CNBC are OK but they rarely handle non-business news. MSNBC hosts annoy me for some reason.  I have to go TV newsless until this is over.
