Waffles and fried chicken.

johnnyrocket: Let the healing begin? More like let the carnage begin.

Sounds like open season on shooting people and expecting to get away with it.


Calm the fark down.  Where is your outrage about the killings in Chicago or Detroit?

The Stealth Hippopotamus: OhioUGrad: Am I the only one who thought that the Florida State Attorney acted like she was giving a Grammy acceptance speech and that she came across like a complete idiot?


No. You are not alone


Okay good. I haven't seen many press conferences like that...but I was under the impression that this was not the way they are supposed to go. I also like how she dodged the question at the end about the person she fired.

Waffles and new bedroom curtains.

DeCypher44: biscuitsngravy: Roscoe's! Ima get me a Carole C. and a side of greens. Ima leave a BIG TIP too!

Went to Scoe's in LB last weekend. Waffles and chicken were tasty!


What's the deal with chicken and waffles?  I mean, I live in the South and never heard of this until about two years ago. How did this get started?

Funny, I find a lot of the people who have this sentiment now didn't when Casey Anthony was acquitted, and still don't with guys like Kobe Bryant and Ben Roethlisberger.

/At the very least, Nancy Grace is consistent.
//Consistently wrong.
///Seriously, her batting average resembles Rob Deer's at this point.


probably because no one actually believes that any of those people were innocent of the crimes they were charged with

I think there's a positive lesson we can all learn from this tragedy:

Make sure you're the only one left standing after you start an altercation.

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


The burden of proof for a self-defense claim doesn't go as high as reasonable doubt, but you do have to demonstrate it pretty strongly. Essentially you have to provide reasonable doubt that what you did was a crime, while admitting that you did it.

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

Not at all. The defense demonstrated its case quite strongly.
 
2013-07-13 11:04:58 PM

Skeptigal: You stupid FLORIDIOTS! Too bad "stand your ground" is only a defense if you're white. A woman who fired warning shots at her husband who was coming at her (she had a protective order against him), was just sentenced to 20 yrs in prison. For attempted manslaughter. In Florida. Guess what color she is?


Is she asian?
 
2013-07-13 11:05:04 PM

HotWingAgenda: Is it common for the Florida courts to reconvene jury trial hearings at 10:00 pm on a Saturday night to announce the verdict?


If the judge had been smart she'd have had them sleep on it and announced the verdict at 9:00 am on a Sunday morning.  All of the potential rioters would have been sleeping off their hangovers and there would have been an entire day to deal with the fallout.

Coco LaFemme: To throw my two cents into the pancakes vs. waffles debate, I prefer French toast.  Chocolate chocolate chip French toast.  Make your regular French toast batter, but add some cocoa powder to it.  Dunk the bread, let it absorb for a bit.  Put bread on griddle, sprinkle with mini chocolate chips.  When done, eat as it is, or sprinkle some powdered sugar on top.

Now that's a farking breakfast.


That's French Toast done right. My grandmother, as great a cook as she was, always made the soggiest french toast imaginable. It made me gag due to how slimy it got.

Weaver95: steamingpile: Duh, now where are all the fark lawyers who said he was going to jail when this first happened.

And where's the riots, I need new headphones.

you should go taunt the next group of black men you see.  let 'em know how happy you are about this verdict.  lemme know how that turns out!


I'm safe and sound in the burbs, no black folks for miles that gave a shiat about this verdict, one Jamaican family down the street that's it.

A 911 call and the injuries to Zimmerman.

Pichu0102: Anyone who celebrates this should be shunned.
Anyone who threatens him should be prosecuted.
Anyone who thinks this means "open season on whatever minority I don't like" should be prosecuted.
Violent rioters should be prosecuted.


Furthermore, everyone should be depressed. A kid is dead, his family is scarred, and a man's life was thrown into chaos and will likely be haunted by this for the rest of his life.

No one wins no matter what happens. My main concern was that people would celebrate this trial's conclusion, despite what a horrible thing that is to celebrate, and I was proven right.


Uh...he brought that one on himself...

/If you're Random Dumbfark, sure, you might not know that following a teen boy in the middle of the night is a stupid idea. If you're 'Captain of the Neighborhood Watch' with a 911 dispatcher telling you to stay the fark put...you have no goddamn excuse for the consequences, especially since  you are the adult in the situation.

RockSteadyUSMC: The judicial system worked exactly how it's supposed to. There was enough reasonable doubt to acquit, and that was how it should be. The judicial system convicts based on facts and should prove beyond a reasonable doubt, not convict based on public opinion.

/USMC MP
//Yes I have a clue


You say that like all the facts are fed into a machine and it decides the fate of the defendant.  The JURY convicts based on their opinion of what are the facts.  In case you didn't know, lawyers bend the truth and *gasp* sometimes lie to win a case.  There much much much more to it than just presenting facts

MadAzza:

Were you in the habit of hiding in the bushes so you could ambush people and repeatedly punch them, regardless of whether they were armed? following you around with a gun in the middle of the night while you were minding your own business?

skullkrusher: Mrtraveler01: 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?

He bought an Arizona Iced Tea. Arizona has racist laws. He supported the state which passes those laws by patronizing a business which pays taxes to Arizona. QED.

Blueberry pancakes made with fresh wild blueberries and 100% pure Maple Syrup at room temperature so it wont cool the pancakes too fast.  For best flavor the pancakes should be cooked on a well seasoned cast iron griddle that used to cook bacon just before the pancakes.

TsukasaK: The outrage on twitter is laughworthy.

@DanteAtkins Zimmerman disobeyed police, chased down an unarmed teenager, confronted him, and killed him. A court has ruled it legal. Think about that. via web

Wait, now we're supposed to obey the police? I am confused.

I'm going to go with Texas or Ohio.

Arizona.


I'm from OH, have lived in AZ and currently live in TX. I'm going to go with OH. All three states have their weirdos. But OH also has the desperation and weather to push people over the edge.

Actively pursuing somebody starts a fight, sorry.

If someone is trying to get the fark away from you and you won't let them? You're instigating a fight.

ambassador_ahab: I went to the Riot meet-up spot, and nobody was there.

WTF?  I want my free shiat!!!!


I doubt theres gonna be a riot for this.

The right wing wanted a revolution, couldn't start it with guns. The left wing wanted a revolution, couldn't push it with paper. The race baiters won't get one by trying to pretend a Hispanic man was white and wrong for defending himself.

People like Jackson and Sharpton want to lead civil rights movement 2.0. They could start by bein actual leaders rather than ambulance chasing to profit from other people's tragedies.

ariseatex: johncb76006: 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.

I thought that the only people who could be racist was the white folk.
Zimmerman is Hispanic.

You clearly never met my Sonoran grandmother.

/refused to go to my parents wedding
//mom was marrying a "dirty Irishman"
///slashies come in threes


I read that as your "Sontaran grandmother", thought it was a sign of restraint that she didn't show up to the wedding with a full arsenal, complete with grenades and missiles.
