roothog: SphericalTime: Okay, after Florida burns down, what state's tag will replace it on Fark?
- DrewCurtis (@DrewCurtis) July 14, 2013

I'm going to go with Texas or Ohio.

Arizona.


I could also agree with Arizona.  Governor Bone-finger scares me.

Time to show the world how a REAL country riots.  Screw those kids in the streets of Cairo, the legitimacy of their plight only detracts from the circus.  We will show the world blood and fire the likes of which only CNN and Fox News have only dreamed of.  This is our country's 9/11.

News Flash?

Really???

So some Hispanic shot a black kid and got away with it. Big deal. My inbox should not be littered with news flashes about this crap. This isn't news, everyone knew this guy was gonna walk.

Screw you Subby for the waste of a good news flash tag. I'm going to submit a news flash when the next NFL player commits murder, see how you like it then.

/bait in the water

Rwa2play: 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.


otoh, they really didn't have much to work with other than Zimmerman being White Black. Maybe if he had been bona fide White this railroading may have worked.

 Acquittal gives new meaning to the statement "They always get away." This moment is tragic and ironic.

Scottybobotty: KingKauff: Waffles are much better when it comes to containing the melted butter and syrup because it has all those little squares to keep it all in.

This is so win it almost made my head explode.


This is precisely why waffles are so much better. The corollary is that all the squares, properly prepared, add a lot of crispy extra surface area for mouthgasms.

Pichu0102: A kid is dead, his family is scarred


Maybe his family could have stepped in and stopped his transformation from the decent, Hollister-wearing kid Trayvon to the tattooed, drug-addled, violent racist punk "No_Limit_nubian".

I think I can do without racists calling people cracker, thank you - now welcome to the ground No_Limit_nubian.

Mighty Taternuts: Raiden333: 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.

He chased a kid that did nothing wrong after the 911 operator told him not to, how is that not ill-will?


The operator does not have the authority to issue a police command.

Coco LaFemme: Of course he got off.  All you need to do anymore to get away with murder is say you felt "threatened."  Doesn't matter what color anyone is in this equation.  Two white people, two black people, mixed...doesn't really matter.  As long as you the shooter tell the jury that you were afraid for your life, you could justify killing an infant if it came down to it.

That's how farked up this country is right now.


It's gonna be fun when the tables are turned:  Older black man shoots white meth head trying to rob him but was fleeing when shot.  Wonder if some on right will be so elated with "Stand Your Ground".

That is kinda sad.


If he'd used some common sense instead of his actual arms, we'd be reading some other thread.

You mean facts won out on race driven emotional plea /bias from the media and community leaders. and my favorite DUMBARSE line from idiots... B-B-But what if he was a white kid?? well they would have found him not guilty too... You are entitled to your own opinions just not your own facts.

Finally this complete waste of taxpayers money and our time is over

Free at last, free at last, hallelujah he's free at last. Now let's go linch the DA and prosecutor for misconduct and make sure they get some serious jail time and get millions for the heroic IT guy who exposed their crimes against justice.

waffles win hands down. You can put ice cream on waffles. you can put pancakes on a bunnys head.

How am I gonna eat pancakes on a bunnys  head? You can't explain that.
 
2013-07-13 10:55:49 PM
This is a satisfactory outcome.

Not a good outcome: this is not a thing to celebrate. No heroics were done here. This is not a thing to be honored.
Not a bad outcome: a man who did what he had to do to survive was not punished, when he easily could have been.
Not justice: there was no justice to be had. But not injustice either, which could have occurred.

Now healing can begin, if we will let it. It will be a long process, and a painful one. But at least we have not made the wounds worse.

Did you miss all those things they call "evidence" and "facts?"  Zimm was getting the shiat kicked out of him and his head being banged against the sidewalk.

The investigating officer knew not to arrest.  There were no charges until it got political and then the political types got their a$$es handed to them.  Zimmerman will now sue and win a case for malicious prosecution.  He should never have been charged.

doglover: 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 said fark lawyers not real lawyers

Link to Sanford, FL police scanner for anyone wanting to follow along.  Pretty quiet so far, I'm thinking the riot threats were all bluster.

I like it cold so it doesn't melt the whipped cream so quickly.  Though if I have the choice, waffles.

Simple question: if you claim self defense, you need scant proof that it was self defense?

Very scary verdict, seems like open season for shooting people for no reason at all. And getting away with it.

I think you mean "lack of facts" won out.  There is one very important person who wasn't actually able to give his side of the story.

but the racist was the one that was killed. Oh, wait, you mean Zimmerman. The hispanic guy who took a black girl to his prom and was a sponsor to black youth. Yeah, what a racist.
