itsaidwhat: I think you mean "white Hispanics" (new race courtesy of CNN - the White House's idea of a REAL news network).

Looking forward to checking that box on the next census form.


Just let me know when they refer to the president as 'White-African'.

George Zimmerman is the next Weight Watchers for Men spokesperson. Fact.

It's all good, people. The state of Florida has already put someone else away for firing a weapon. Equal justice and all.

So I love pancakes. From my mom's side I was passed down recipes for Swedish pancakes and lefse. My dad is an expert at traditional pancakes and has done some good crepes as well. I haven't done any of it. However I've been thinking of investing in pancake griddle like this one and really getting into it. Anyone use one like it? Don't tell me about cast iron. I've bought and thrown out two cast iron skillets because I can never get them seasoned right and they rust like crazy.

Bartman66: Pincy: Bartman66: 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

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.

????Lack of facts???

According to who?? Obviously the PHYSICAL facts pointed to not guilty ... and you think that if Martin was alive he wouldn't have been charged with assault?? you know.. when you attack someone which is illegal.. even if they are following you.. which is legal?

I am very sorry that Mr martin attacked the wrong person and got killed and yes that is tragic. But what "facts" are you referring to? besides the emotional ones that you are imagining would come out of thin air? Too many people have already convinced themselves of Zimmermans guilt long before the trial and knew for sure that he was evil...

Sorry but justice was served and I am sorry it wasn't the emotional justice but the ACTUAL justice.

Now let's see how many law abiding citizens go out and commit crimes, rob. hurt, beat up etc.. all using this judgment as an excuse.

Hopefully that doesn't happen


You are assuming that Trayvon attacked Zimmerman because we only have Zimmerman's side of the story, not Trayvon's.  That's what I mean by lack of evidence.  The physical evidence does not point to not guilty.  I might prove that there was a scuffle between the two, but it doesn't prove who was the aggressor.

Somacandra: skullkrusher: Mrtraveler01: creepy ass-cracka: No. Those are racial slurs uttered by Martin.

Based on what? Zimmerman's word?

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

his girlfriend testified that he said that on the phone to her

I have words for people that stalk me at night in the dark too while I'm on the sidewalk. They are not complimentary.


OH SNAP!

crazyeddie: Penman: He's free, but he'll have to skip town most likely. Trayvon's crew wants revenge.

So, thugs thinking they are tougher than they are and jumping straight to violence? Isn't that what got Trayvon into this mess in the first place?  Figures. Thugs will be thugs.

OhioUGrad: 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.


It was just so strange. It's funny that you mentioned the Grammies. I was thinking that it was like she was trying to explain why her company didn't win the Oscar in some technical field! I think she was just so giddy because it was finally over. I don't think it has hit her yet.

iq_in_binary: Legal investigator. MY JOB was following people. You NEVER continuously trail somebody from less than 20-30 yards away. Because any closer is considered menacing. Besides that, if you had half a brain, you wouldn't be trailing somebody in a fashion that would alert them to the fact that you're tailing. For exactly the same reason, it can be construed as intimidating or threatening. Menacing, Intimidation, Stalking, there are all kinds of criminal charges that can and will be levied against you for following people around, and plenty of investigators have been tried with them despite the perfectly legitimate reasons they have to be investigating people.


That actually is both interesting and contributes to the conversation.

TheWhoppah: tbeatty: Zimmerman will now sue and win a case for malicious prosecution.


Nobody ever wins a case for malicious prosecution anymore... prosecutors are basically immune, especially when the jury was out more than 10 hours.


The Department of "Justice" organized anti--Zimmerman demonstrations at taxpayer expense, and this appears to have been done at the behest of the Attorney General, likely with the President's knowledge and support.

Someone has a lot of very hard questions to answer on this one.
 
2013-07-13 11:21:17 PM

Utter Genius: Now sue NBC and get your ruined life back, George Zimmerman.


No, no, no.   the next step will be Obama instructing the "Justice" Department to go after him on Federal Charges.  Obama will want as much race hatred as possible to increase black turnout in 2014.  I bet they even time the arrest to be just about 2 months before the election.

Yea, if you leave the scene, go to your car, come back with a gun and shoot a warning shot with your kids in the room you're going to have a bad time.

Warning shots in general are a bad idea. If the situation is bad enough to legally justify a warning shot you can shoot the person.
 
2013-07-13 11:21:41 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?


Yes, yes...that case.  That is making the rounds again.

Never mind that she chose to flee first, GOT AWAY.  She then decided to go back, get her gun, and then fire a warning shot in the direction of her kids' bedrooms?

Stand Your Ground doesn't equal Stand your ground after you GO BACK.

To make it worse she didn't accept a plea deal for 3 years.
 
2013-07-13 11:21:46 PM
Great now Zimmerman can sue ABC for starting this circus! ABC who doctored the police video to cover his injuries and stated Zimmerman lied when he said he was attacked causing America to get in a up-roar.....  Zimmerman should also sue the media outlet who dubbed the 911 tape to make it sound like he was racist and played it on the news...These two things America was not told was fake for months after the fact!

StreetlightInTheGhetto: bigsteve3OOO: Albert: Obama, the DOJ, and the media attempted to railroad Zimmerman, This case was 100% political and anyone who thinks Zimmerman is guilty is probably an angry black person or you've been completely fooled and spun up by the lying media.

AMEN. This should have never been more than a local story where no one was charged.

Jesus this white lady who doesn't watch cable news feels f--king sorry for you two. And disgusted.

Pleased that by Florida law he's not guilty, fine. Celebrating, diaf.

A unarmed teen dead with only the survivor to definitely tell most of the tale - you think no one should have been charged??? That's what our f--king courts are FOR, to sort this sh-t out!

WRONG! That is what investigators are for. The original ones said no case here. then Obama forced them to a trial. It is a sick use of the bully pulpit.

From the other thread, because I have to respond:

If you honestly believe the only reason the trial took place is because "OBAMA FORCED THEM TO A TRIAL", you are a f--king idiot. Although to be fair I am slightly envious of you. Ignorance is bliss, and it must be nice to be so SURE of things, all the time. And to have an easy target that you can blame when anything disturbs you, so you know where to direct your anger you truly know is justified.

I would never want that for myself, but at the same time, I can see how comforting that must be to you.


Actually, I heard that on talk radio.  I thought it was funny so I repeated it.  I find the liberal talking points more laughable.  I am an equal opportunity poke-funner-at-guy.

Full Metal Retard: 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.


Settle down, bubba.

The law is lamely written.  Kill a guy, claim you were frightened for your life.  You don't have to be a redneck to get off scott-free for being a wannabe cop pussy with a trigger finger.

Elegy: 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.


Way to selectively edit the facts to draw the conclusion you want, Skeptigal

Full Metal Retard: sjcousins: 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?


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.


So you accept unquestioningly that Martin started the fight despite the fact that the only evidence comes from the man who shot him, whos freedom relies on claiming self defense, but everything else is 'fantasy' made up by the 'race industry'. Yep, you sound like a reasonable individual sound of mind. What the fark is the race industry anyway?

Mighty Taternuts: MatrixOutsider: 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.

That isn't what I asked. Following an innocent person with the intent of stopping them because you feel they may have done something wrong is ill-will.


No it isn't.

Beating someone who asks you your name is ill will.
