No. You are not alone


Nope.

SevenizGud: 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.

The Martin's lawyer just compared this case to Emmet Till. Jesus Christ.

"You have a little black boy who was killed," said Benjamin Crump, an attorney for Martin's parents. "It's going to be reported in history books ,and 50 years from now, our children will talk about Trayvon Martin's case like we talk about Emmett Till."

Trayvon was the 1 who's life was being threatened--by a guy w/ a gun chasing after him! Trayvon had the RIGHT 2 do ANYTHING 2 defend himself
https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/356243570098835459


 Really? He *knew* Z had a gun?

 So, tell me why he attacked a guy who was armed with a gun...cause that's all kinds of stupid no matter who's the "victim".

/the amount of people who think Z and T were mind reading each other is astounding.

"I dunno know man. It started super positive, then it just got crazy"

"I did not like that at all."

"No Kev. None of us did."

"Ya. It was totally messed up."

"It's disgusting how people will, you know, take something good and just take advantage of a situation."

"Yeah."

"There was no time to do anything except just leave, and just hope you're not hurt."

AirForceVet: I'm very unhappy Martin is dead. I honestly believe Zimmerman caused the altercation to happen by his actions. But I accept the jury's decision that Zimmerman didn't murder him nor committed manslaughter.

But I was once a 17-year-old male, walking in my Florida neighborhood at night after going to the local store. Glad no Zimmernam followed me in their car, carrying a gun.


But what if one was?  Would you have attacked him?

You had the mental faculties necessary to realize it's a bad idea to turn around and attack anyone who comes within 50 feet of you.

UNC_Samurai: Raiden333: 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.

Didn't they find Zimmerman liable in the wrongful death suit. They at least recognized he was negligent in his actions.

 
2013-07-13 10:58:21 PM  
At least now we can possibly go back to discussing non-lower-case-'i'mportant issues over the broadcast media.

And, yeah, he'll most likely be be a social pariah for the rest of whatever length of time constitutes the rest of his natural-born-life.
 
2013-07-13 10:58:33 PM  

itsaidwhat: Mighty Taternuts: An unarmed minor was killed while on his walk home.

That is kinda sad.

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


Yeah totally his fault Zimmerman followed him, that is Trayvon's lack of judgement.

Lionel Mandrake: NOT GUILTY!!

JUST LIKE OJ!!


The jury decided.

That's how it works in our justice system. No posthumous verdicts from the bench, no guilt presumed upon accusation, no tribal dances, no bribes or other bullcrap. The jury decided.

2013-07-13 10:58:55 PM  
Swedish panekakes as made by my Norwegian grandma.

1 cup of flour
2 cups milk (2% at least)
4 eggs
2 to 3 tablespoons of corn oil
A handful of sugar

Preheat griddle to 425, it's ready when droplets of water dance.

Combine ingredients and mix until smooth.  Some small lumps of flour are OK, but not a lot.

Once griddle is heated, melt a tablespoon of butter and spread it across.  Pour half a cup of batter on griddle.  Cook.

On serving, roll up some lingonberry preserve inside and enjoy.

Oh, and I called it in the other thread, the Jury was 5-1 with five for acquittal and 1 for manslaughter.

Rwa2play: 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".


Fleeing when shot? Where does that come from?
 
2013-07-13 10:59:11 PM  

heavymetal: I think it was a clear case of manslaughter due to Zimmerman's negligence. Unfortunately the over reached trying to argue a murder case instead of arguing manslaughter. All they would have had to prove is that George Zimmerman actions caused the unnecessary death of Trayvon Martin and nothing involving motive and such.

Personally I do not think it's right that in Florida you can pretty much provoke someone, shoot them dead if they start kicking your ass, and then get off free claiming self defense.


Sadly, this.

SevenizGud: Good to know that some hate-filled racist cannot attempt to murder someone by bashing their head in and have the victim also pay for self-defense through incarceration.

Justice will only be served if Zimmerman can successfully sue the estate of that racist for pain and suffering.


Wait...how was Martin racist?

Hell naw. I already raised this issue, and voted for french toast and having home-grown blueberries and black raspberries over the top, with real maple syrup and lots of butter.

On the Zimmerman topic, I'm amazed and gratified we saw justice done. I hope Zimmerman and everyone else stays safe tonight, and every other night.

"Anyone who comes within 50 feet of you" is factually correct.

"Someone stalking you at night with a gun" is also correct.

Somewhere in between is the truth.

Yes, let's discuss pancakes. It's got a lot more depth than watching a trial like it was a sport.
