Erebus1954: SphericalTime: If I had a black son, I would be absolutely terrified for his future right now.Because of all the black-on-black crime?
StreetlightInTheGhetto: bigsteve3OOO2013-07-13 10:54:07 PMStreetlightInTheGhetto: 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.
The Stealth Hippopotamus: I prefer waffles
TsukasaK: Elegy: The fact that people can't understand that firing a "warning shot" is reckless endangerment with a firearmThat doesn't even make sense.But then again, this is Florida we're talking about..
WayToBlue: Quick survey: who likes their syrup warm/hot, and who likes it room temp?
stonelotus: sheep snorter: Zimmerman now hired by the Florida police as he has passed his entrance exam of MURDERING a young black kid.ah but Zimmerman got scooped up by PreCrime first for taking a future criminal off the streets.
Rodeodoc: Lionel Mandrake: NOT GUILTY!!JUST LIKE OJ!!And Casey Anthony. I knew as soon as the incompetent prosecutor allowed the jury to be made up of 6 white women that this wannabe cop asshat would get off. I hope the blacks burn Florida to the ground./riot
nelsonal: Mrtraveler01: creepy ass-cracka: No. Those are racial slurs uttered by Martin.Based on what? Zimmerman's word?Based on the testimony of the person Trayvon was on the phone with prior to the fight.

rhiannon: ontariolightning: @911BUFF: DALLAS POLICE DEPARTMENT CONFIRMS THEY HAVE RIOT POLICE ON ALERT AFTER GEORGE ZIMMERMAN'S VERDICT. #911BUFFJust go to bed dude.

JRoo: SphericalTime: If I had a black son, I would be absolutely terrified for his future right now.As opposed to what other time in American history?
Elegy: ChaosStar: skullkrusher: 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.BUT I WANNA BE MADCan you link a citation for all those facts of the case?I was looking for it after reading that post but every article I've found has been very light on the actual events.Damn - there was a good article discussing it that has been buried under all of the other media coverage and I can't find it now.The best I can find ATM is a an discussion with an exasperated Angela Corey.Note that the jury took less than 20 minutes to convict Alexander - it's not like the verdict was in doubt in terms of the charges brought against her. She admitted to most of them in court. The fact that people can't understand that firing a "warning shot" is reckless endangerment with a firearm, and that such an act carries a very high mandatory minimum in the state of Florida (a state with high mandatory minimums for all gun crime), just baffles me.
GoldSpider: Nickster79: [img.fark.net image 320x240]/needs to happen//sooner rather than laterWow, so much butthurt over not getting your way.I think Zimmerman should have gone to jail, but the prosecution simply didn't have enough evidence to convict. That's how the system works. Deal with it.
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?
Truther: Rodeodoc: Lionel Mandrake: NOT GUILTY!!JUST LIKE OJ!!And Casey Anthony. I knew as soon as the incompetent prosecutor allowed the jury to be made up of 6 white women that this wannabe cop asshat would get off. I hope the blacks burn Florida to the ground./riotCause all the innocent folk deserve to have their lives ruined./know you're not serious//hopes you're not serious?
Mrtraveler01: sjcousins: What the fark is the race industry anyway?What I want to know is if it contributes to our GDP? Because every bit helps.
TsukasaK: purple kool-aid and a jigger of formaldehyde: Seems to me that they have just sent a msg that if you want to kill someone, just start some shiat, start to get your ass kicked and then you can kill them now.[i.imgur.com image 272x254]
nosferatublue: NAACP is asking folks to sign a petition asking the DOJ to file civil rights charges against Z.
jehovahs witness protection: And the moocow in charge is being milked for information.

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!
teenage mutant ninja rapist: novalord2: 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."Whos emmett till?
Noitall: Wil Wheaton@wilwStalking and shooting unarmed teenagers because you're a paranoid racist! AMIRIGHTGUYS?! YEAH! #farkYouGeorgeZimmermanDieInAFirehttps://twitter.com/wilw/status/356240381358247938
bigsteve3OOO: If you feel safe enough to shoot a warning shot.....you do not feel in danger enough to use a deadly weapon.
Gyrfalcon: Mrtraveler01: nosferatublue: NAACP is asking folks to sign a petition asking the DOJ to file civil rights charges against Z.What civil rights were violated?Good question. Civil rights have to be violated by state action. Zimmerman was only pretending to be a cop.
Tom_Slick: odinsposse: 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.Go for an electric griddle if you don't want to mess with cast iron, I have one of these. It provides very controllable even heat to make your pancakes turn out perfectly. The secret to a cooking a good pancake is and even heat source, generally non cast iron pans will have hot and cold spots.
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".
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.

Millennium: nosferatublue: NAACP is asking folks to sign a petition asking the DOJ to file civil rights charges against Z.Got a link? I'd like to see how they intend to do this without committing double jeopardy.
