Fuggin Bizzy: What? He was clearly guilty, based on my own presupposition and the scattering of things I heard about the case on the Internet. This can't be right. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: trial-by-jury doesn't work.


It absolutely does. When it goes the way you want it to.

d23: NuclearPenguins: TF voters, I am disappoint.

Wasn't out fault.  The modmins are trying to be judicious or are running scared.

the one I voted for: "It is now open season on black children in Florida."


Ouch.  If that wasn't so true it would be almost too much.

ZAZ: I like pancackes. As long as they aren't too dark. Nothing worse than a burnt pancake.


and yet, waffles need just a little bit of burnt.
 
2013-07-13 10:44:01 PM
I can provide the syrup!

Just gotta wait about 8 months or so before the trees give up their sweet, delicious sap.

Weaver95: if florida burns to the ground before monday morning...would anyone actually care?


It's hard to get water-logged swamplands to burn down.

My personal opinion:

Before the trial, I did no research, I only heard what the mainstream media reported, including the chopped up 911 call NBC played.

When the trial started, I listened to it every day at work, starting out rooting for the prosecution.

As the case went on, I started to realize that the case had been mischaracterized in the media and that there was in fact Reasonable Doubt. I saw that the prosecution was unable to establish a consistent narrative of what happened, and relied only on attacking Zimmerman's character and evoking emotion for Martin. I am sad that Martin is dead, it should not have happened. Both men made stupid mistakes that night. I don't know Zimmerman well enough to make a call on if he truly had ill-will in his heart. But I am happy a not guilty verdict was reached, because it means that evidence and the process of law have overridden appeals to emotion.

ilikeracecars: Enjoying the rage of farkers hating this headline might be the only thing keeping me from going out to riot.


Hear that, Drew?  You're performing a public service by going with this mediocre headline.  Clever.

Irresistably stupid force collided with immovably stupid object.  What is left is what could be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

Personally, I thought manslaughter would have been correct, but I wasn't on the jury.  You can't pack heat then go around in a situation that may lead to a confrontation.  In addition, you can't jump a dude planning to beat his ass and assume you will come out all right either.

Thus, Florida retains its tag.  As someone once said here, Florida is to stupid what Japan is to fetish.

Pancakes with cinnamon sugar please

So what else are they going to use to distract us from the whole Snowden thing?

/probably waffles

Wise_Guy: Let's announce this highly controversial verdict of a racially charged incident at 10 PM on a sweltering Saturday night.

What could possibly go wrong?


When I saw this I was like, 'are they insane?' Even if I were the judge I would tell them its too late and we will bring the jury in tomorrow morning.

Like Whoodini said, "Freaks Come Out at Night"
 
2013-07-13 10:45:15 PM
The entire goal of this media circus and acquittal was to incite Manson's Helter Skelter. That's why the DHS bought all the bullets, obviously. It's really easy to connect the dots and see that this is just a classist control measure.

steamingpile: Duh, now where are all the fark lawyers who said he was going to jail when this first happened.


I don't think any of the actual lawyers said that. Most said nothing, the few that did speak said he was gonna walk unless something new came out. Ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat

I tend to find pancakes really dry and gummy, even with too much syrup. I like Belgian waffles, though.

Chocolate chip pancakes FTW

Incorrigible Astronaut: cman: NuclearPenguins: TF voters, I am disappoint.

This wasn't us

We voted one up to 8 votes

We were ignored

This. We had a pretty full thread going with the simple "not guilty" headline. I'm surprised they went with this one.


This is why I stick with only getting sponsored for TF. Drew can't have my beer money if they pull stuff like this. (Used to it, welcome to fark applies, but I also get to vote with my wallet)

On the one hand, never got to take my kid on vacation there, and I love Carl Hiaasen books.

On the other hand, my abusive ex-stepmother and her white trash racist kin live there.

Burn baby burn.

I was told there would be a riot.
As a Canadian, who was watching 'Jesus Christ Superstar' before this decision, I wasn't planning on rioting.
We have had some floods here, so looting may be in order.

If we get a Texas tag, it needs to be bigger than the other tags.

Didn't they find Zimmerman liable in the wrongful death suit. They at least recognized he was negligent in his actions.
 
2013-07-13 10:46:39 PM

UNC_Samurai: This is about the prosecution being unable to put together a compelling case.

You don't go to jail just for being proven a racist asshole.


The prosecution was incompetent; the verdict was to be expected, sadly.
