Penman: iq_in_binary: Because the asshole who thinks a gun in his pocket makes him a cop that decided you looked suspicious won't go to jail for shooting you after starting a fight with you and losing.

Every Trayvon cheerleader gets this wrong. Trayvon Martin started the fight.


According to the man who shot him you mean?

Lionel Mandrake: casual disregard: 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.

And they decided correctly.

That's what happens when rednecks write stupid laws: bad things happen, but nobody did anything wrong.



Really?  Only southern states have self defense?  Amazing.
And you're not a bigot at all.  Everyone who might disagree with you is a redneck.

Mrtraveler01: 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.

Mind = Blown


Don't get me started on the Illuminati connections that Skittles have

ALL OF THE EVIDENCE says the guy was just defending himself. A jury agreed quickly.

The race industry got their ass handed to them on this. The rest of us laugh at you.

Now, Zimmerman can look forward to suing the shiat out of NBC. Get the big dollars dude, you deserve it all.

skullkrusher: IlGreven: FreetardoRivera: [www.deedeeworks.com image 304x300]

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


...and yet, by the "rule of law", all either were acquitted or had their cases dropped, because the evidence just wasn't there.  Same as Zimmerman: the jurors acquitted him because the evidence just wasn't there.  I'm sorry, but you can't call Roethlisberger "Rapey Ben", then turn around and say that finally, the rule of law has been served with Zimmerman.

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?


Stay inside, switch to reruns of Miami Vice and avoid the riots?

iq_in_binary: 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.


He wasn't being pursued, he was being trailed. That isn't cause to attack someone, I'm sorry. This verdict proves that.

Following someone isn't illegal. Punching someone for following you is. Martin had no legal obligation to flee from Zimmerman (but he was only 100 yards from home and had 3 minutes to get there) but he did have a legal obligation not to beat Zimmerman for following him

Just went out and checked. no rioting here in ne south Dakota yet.
 
2013-07-13 11:08:07 PM

Do black people really say "cracka" still? I thought that was a dated term to use.

We could arm all old white people with so-called "sawed off shotguns", .45 ACP submachineguns, and belt-fed weaponry. Oops, sorry, that's just MY house.
 
2013-07-13 11:08:12 PM

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


You don't need proof.  The prosection must prove that it was not self defense.   It might have been easier
if there was evedence that it was not self defence.
 
2013-07-13 11:08:16 PM

Tourney3p0: 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?


We have no proof that Martin knew Zimmerman had a gun at that time. He was, after all, concealing it. The only point at which we can be sure Martin knew Zimmerman had a gun was when he was on top of him: the point when he'd have felt the gun through Zimmerman's clothes. According to Zimmerman's narrative, at least, that was the first (and, as it turned out, only) time Martin went for the gun.

steamingpile: 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.


I live in a medium city(like 400k) that has a "da hood" so there could be riots and they could make it out here, but I'm not too concerned, I'm well supplied.

- DrewCurtis (@DrewCurtis) July 14, 2013

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.


Ironically a large portion of them migrate to Florida.

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?


Guess what? She broke into her SO's house when she had a restraining order against him, confronted him, left his house to get her gun out of her car, returned to continue to argument, and fired a "warning shot" that deflected off the wall and into the ceiling when her children were standing in the same room.

Oh yeah, there was a 911 call where she could be clearly heard saying "I got something for you" and then a shot.

Then she insisted she had a SYG defense when she had a plea deal on the table and rolled the dice on a trial when the charges she was up against had a 20 year mandatory minimum.

Marissa Alexander has no one to blame but herself for going to jail.

TuteTibiImperes 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.

They're claiming Miami's where they get mad, Jeffrey Kulp, Reginald Denny & others born of the wrong color lost before an angry mob http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1291&dat=19800615&id=FxRUAAAAIB A J&sjid=C40DAAAAIBAJ&pg=6452,2604041

As opposed to the fantasy stories made up by the race industry?  Yes.  Sad to say, but they went by the evidence presented in a court of law.

Yes, a 911 call where Zimmerman admitted to pursuing Martin. Despite being told not to.

Active pursuit is threatening behavior. That's instigating a fight. Like I said, he was losing a fight he started, and like a little biatch pulled the gun because he was a sore loser.
 
2013-07-13 11:10:15 PM
Since George Zimmerman is not guilty of the gun death of Trayvon Martin, then that just proves my point --- People don't kill people, GUNS kill people. Can we get started on that National Gun Confiscation thing now?

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


I really cant tell here... what wrongful death suit? The one that cant happen because of florida law?

The only civil suit that can happen is Zimmerman against the media for defamation (like for doctoring the 911 tapes, for example).
 
2013-07-13 11:10:34 PM
Angela Corey should have to pay Zimmerman's legal fees.

Zealous, over-charging, politically motivated prosecution needs to end.

The scary part is that if she had not overcharged Zimmerman, she could probably have gotten him to plea to a lesser charge just due to the high cost of defending yourself in this country.

Justice = whatever verdict we wanted
No Justice = the verdict given was not the one we thought we should have gotten.
