Corvus: I don't get why people think Zimmerman gets to defend himself, by shooting someone but Martin isn't allowed to defend himself by punching someone.

And who the fark attacks someone while still trying to talk to on his cell phone? That makes no sense.


I know, I'm shocked - shocked - that Trayvon was able to get in so many hits after being shot.

whidbey: You really want that shiathead released, don't you?


Why do you want to see an innocent man be imprisoned? What makes a man who shoots someone in self-defense a shiathead?

I'm guessing you're one of those Americans that are proud of their ignorance.

jehovahs witness protection: There WILL be riots when GZ is found not guilty. Mark my words.


Well, when one group of people believes that the justice system is stacked against them. When people feel, rightly or wrongly, that the system is unjust, it can cause anger, despair, and rage that need to be vented.

I'm not excusing it, I'm explaining why it happens.

No, I'm one of "those Americans" who knows this is an open and shut case, that Zimmerman was told not to approach Martin, and he ignored the warning.

He killed him. Get the fark over it.

I heard Trayvon was gay and heading towards an abortion palace, right after picking up his government check with his fellow Muslims.

Point of fact: Zimmerman was asked by dispatch, while following Martin, "are you following him?" Zimmerman answers "yes." Dispatch then said, "we don't need you to do that." Zimmerman says ok then starts walking back to his truck.

It is incorrect to say "Zimmerman was told not to approach Martin" because that is not what happened. Therefore, Mr. Widbey, you have zero credibility and anything you write from this point on is just gibbering gibberish.

flondrix: Normal Rockwell did some very disturbing sketches and watercolors of the civil rights struggle; I would like to see a timeline someday of what he was painting privately vs. what he was publishing. Did he decide at one point that he was now willing to take the risk of going "all political"?


Generally speaking, he was paid to produce them by various publications. Being the master that he was, there were every bit as iconic as those he was paid to produce that were more "standard".

That they seem more "political' is probably more a result of the changing mindset in the country, particularly the publishers of the day than a specific decision on his part to "change direction" per se. He continued to paint great Americana all the way through. Although, as I recall, he did support civil rights.

SO you are saying Martin punched Zimmerman after he was shot? Serious what are you talking about?

Zimmerman was forcing an altercation, Martin MAYBE punched him because of it (if you believe someone still talks on their phone when they hide in bushes to punch someone and punches them still holding the phone). This is what the DEFENSE is saying.

A classic painting.  I wonder if it would be censored today because of the graphitti on the wall behind the little girl.

Normal Rockwell did some very disturbing sketches and watercolors of the civil rights struggle; I would like to see a timeline someday of what he was painting privately vs. what he was publishing.  Did he decide at one point that he was now willing to take the risk of going "all political"?

That painting currently hangs in the waiting area outside the Oval Office.

[images.politico.com image 605x328]

Some conservatives were upset when Obama had it placed there because they felt it was divisive, and unfairly stigmatized whites by reminding people of recent history.


I do believe that there was a Fark thread about it, and there was a lot of buthurt in that thread if I remember correctly. Or it may have been on another site.

What the hell are you talking about. I never said that. Wow you people are amazing.

I forget he hid in the bushes planning to jump him WHILE THE ENTIRE TIME STILL TALKING ON HIS PHONE. Because I know when I plan to fight someone I STAY ON THE PHONE TALKING AS I DO IT.

I wouldn't be surprised.

Many will see this as an unsatisfying outcome; many will think it shouldn't be this easy to kill someone, concoct an uncontradictable excuse, and get away with it

Pretty much my take on it.
 
2013-07-10 05:34:50 PM

whidbey: Pretty much my take on it.


Another take:

Yet more than the conflicting testimony over who screamed for help, more than the question of which man was on top, this case is about a defendant's presumed innocence and a dead man's presumed guilt. Link

Not anymore; the White House borrowed it from the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA for a while, and returned it some time in 2011.

I also got a sort of answer to my own question:  In 1963, Rockwell ended his contract with the Saturday Evening Post and took up with Look magazine specifically so he could do work like this.  (The Problem We All Must Live With was painted, or at least completed, in 1964.)

Yes, but he was forcing an altercation with a black male, and they don't have any right to stand their ground and defend themselves against creepy weirdos who stalk them as they walk home from the store, certainly no right to defend themselves against some creepy weirdo who GETS OUT OF HIS VEHICLE AND CHASES THEM, because minorities are all on double-secret probation.    But don't you dare call people who think this way "racist", or you're the real racist.

This case is conserviot jack-off fodder because they all fantasize about getting to shoot them some attractive and successful african americans.  If Martin had been a white teenager, the current members of the Zimmerman fan club would all be howling for Zimmerman's blood and demanding that he be "sent back to Mexico in a bag".  (Yes, I know he's not from Mexico)

Far be it for me to argue with Wikipedia :)

I suppose that is quite possible. I own and have read a handful of books on Rockwell, who, (along with N.C. Wyeth) are personal favorites. I don't recall it being characterized as a politically motivated move, but who knows. I know he did work for a variety of publishers, and painted what they needed and that he was happy to paint Americana that reflected the America of the time.

My observation was that it was less that he became "radicalized" and more that he was reflecting the shifting times in America. And being Rockwell, he reflected with some striking and powerful imagery.
