The only one that really matters in this trial is the "N" word.  Drop that one and watch all hell break loose.

Why is this legal? 6 people on a jury for a felony criminal case?

fark the system. Put it down like old yeller and start again with Hamurabi's finger and a translation book.

I don't know why George Zimmerman gets so much respect.  He's clearly a Mexican.

I'm like that, only with smack.

The prosecutor said Martin had no blood or DNA from Zimmerman on his hands or under his fingernails

But all the Zimmerman white knights tell me that Martin was beating him to death with his bare hands.

Florida.


And Texas, although here it's only an option and we typically have 12-person juries.

This is gonna be the next OJ Murder Trial, isn't it?

If the blatant murderer doesn't walk, there will be riots. The race card will be played from the bottom of the deck. A bunch of nobodies will get their fifteen minutes despite having done nothing to earn it. And we're already looking at a naughty word that could change everything.

Dammit, I've read this book before, and it sucks.

He used a former FARK headline as a joke. Headline of the week if I recall correctly.
 
2013-06-24 12:30:15 PM  
He was quoting the defendant's call to the police.  Now, if he had dropped the F-Bomb during opening argument, that would have been fantastic.  I'd think more of the guy who swore than the guy who told a farking knock-knock joke, that's certain.

Marcus Aurelius: The only one that really matters in this trial is the "N" word.  Drop that one and watch all hell break loose.


Truer words were never spoken.  I cannot wait until that happens.  I'll lay odds it does, and from the Defense (including prosecution quoting the defendant).

During the Cold War, Russian intelligence agents would smuggle microfiche inside kernels of corn before swallowing them and smuggling them across the border.

Six on the jury?. I thought that the normal capital jury of 12 is reduced to just 3/5 size for a Florida trial of the death of a black man, that would make it 7.2 using normal math.

There is quite possibly 0% chance of the n-word being dropped.

Regarding 12-person juries, the Supreme Court called the number a "historical accident." Hell, the court said you don't even need a unanimous jury to convict or acquit. 10/12 or 5/6 is sufficient.
 
2013-06-24 12:34:40 PM  
This means George Zimmerman is acquitted and Paula Deen is the new host of "Hell's Kitchen" on Aspire.

2013-06-24 12:35:24 PM  
Did they let the information retrieved from Treyvon's phone get admitted as evidence?  The pics that showed guns and drugs, and the txt's that had him referring to himself a gangsta?  I remember his lawyers saying it had nothing to do with this case, and yet they were still bringing up Zimmerman's arrest for domestic Violence and assault on a police officer.

This trial is going to be a clusterphark one way or the other.  You basically have gun rights, racial stereotypes, and Florida all thrown in a blender.

Playing devils advocate - wasn't the story that he was slamming the guy's head into the ground?  Not sure you'd get DNA on you if you just grabbed somebody's head and banged it into the ground...

Having said that:  everyone that says they "just want justice" are lying.  They want the jury to agree with their already-decided-upon opinion.  "Justice" is a jury is impaneled, hears the case, and makes a decision.

That's really the best case scenario here.
 
2013-06-24 12:38:01 PM  
In the call to the dispatcher, Zimmerman said Martin looked suspicious and "black," and noted that there was a string of recent crime in the neighborhood.

That alone is going to make the defense case an uphill battle.  He's on tape, saying that he's following someone simply because he's black.

he will be convicted of vol/invol manslaughter.  he will do 3 years in prision and be released.

won't be murder because they don't know whos voice is on the tape
can't walk free because someone died.

I'm hoping Zimmerman takes the stand and simply quotes Travis Bickle as a response to every question.

"What was your motivation upon wanting to become a community watchman?"

"I think someone should just take this city and just... just flush it down the farkin' toilet."

"..."
 
2013-06-24 12:39:58 PM  
it's going to be some boring shiat and some black people are going to get mad at white people for no reason because that what they do
