Weaver95: LegacyDL: Lesson learned: listen to authority and don't be the aggressor.

I think the lesson here is: don't be black.


Actually, I think the lesson is: if you defend yourself against a football playing, physically fit, aggressive 17-year-old who happens to be black, the state of Florida will try to railroad your ass no matter how little evidence of murder or manslaughter there is.

I didn't follow the trial.

2013-07-13 11:51:01 PM

Cataholic: PsiChick: 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.

I know.  He should have just laid back and taken the beating he deserved.  What did he think was gonna happen wearin that skirt?


You want to know the difference between Zimmerman and a rape victim? Zimmerman  chose to get out of his car and actively pursue Trayvon while armed*. Rape victims don't usually chase rapists around with guns.

/*And, as you would know if you knew the first damn thing about gun safety, while you are carrying a loaded weapon you DO NOT TAKE ACTION THAT MIGHT PROVOKE A FIGHT.
//Godfarkingdamn, how do people miss the most basic gun-safety rules?

purple kool-aid and a jigger of formaldehyde: Great that's cool you don't have to take any responsibility for killing someone when it was your fault to begin with.


First of all, that's not proven.

Second of all, would you prefer the alternative? You and the "burn Zimmerman" crew seem to want a justice system where someone can have their life ruined given circumstantial evidence with plenty of doubt to go around.

novalord2: The Martin's lawyer just compared this case to Emmet Till. Jesus Christ.

"You have a little black boy 17-year-old young black man 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."


1-FTFY, Mr. Crunk... I mean, Crump, you Al Sharpton wannabe.

2-Only if you write those history books, because 1 year from now, everybody but that kid's family will probably say, "who?" about both of these idiots.

3-Who da fuq is Emmett Till? I'm a history buff, and I have to go look that shiat up. My black friend just looked at me and said, "Emmett who?" So...yep, they most certainly will talk about this young man in 50 years, just like they do today about this Emmett guy--not at all because they won't farkin know who either one of them are.

Saw that - you were a few seconds off and came in at 1006. I'll be watching this thread.  ;)  The #nPo is rolling into MitB with 2 belts y'all and the Rainbow Hardcore that Supercampion is holding is one of 'em.

Nope, I hold the hardcore one now. I took with an epic Sharknado post. It's going to be up for grabs soon, so get to your posts. I've got to write up the MITB guessing game tonight anyhow.

What's the rule in a thread like this where posts might get nuked? Is screencap proof enough, or do you have to be at 1,004 when the dust settles?

I believe it's first to hit 1004 the moment the fact happens.  Deleted posts after the fact do not count.


That is my understanding.

- 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.


It's not irony. Nuts roll downhill.

Elegy: ChaosStar: Even going out and getting her gun from the car wasn't against the law if it was her place.

It technically wasn't her home. Her and her SO had separated, and she was living elsewhere, and she had a restraining order taken out against him. She went over there thinking he wasn't home, and he was.

And you can't leave a confrontation, grab a gun, and return with it. That is not "standing your ground" under any definition of the term, or the self-defense laws of any state. The fact that she was able to get away and returned with a firearm, and the fact that the 911 call her SO was on where she could clearly be heard saying "I got something for you" and then shooting.....

Like the Zimmerman case, this is not the civil rights case people are looking for.


If she was still considered an owner of the property, she had a right to be there.
She could also go and get her gun, as it's still her property, and return to collect her things. Doesn't even need a ccp, as it's her property. This isn't leaving a confrontation then returning, it's leaving a confrontation and going back to her original purpose. A new confrontation, legally speaking, would have began once she returned to the house.
He came at her, size being taken into account of disparity of force, she could have shot him to protect herself from potential lethal force.
She didn't though, she fired a warning shot, that's illegal.

Again, this is all assuming she was still an owner of the property or had a legal right to be there. I don't know all the facts in the case so I'm only giving out information on one potential scenario.

Well, now that riot police are out, the cities are going to feel like they need to use them.  I feel a little bit sorry for a few dumb kids who chose this night to rob a liquor store on a lazy Saturday night and get the full brunt of the riot police, then become the poster children for the "Zimmerman riots" that they had no real part in.  But only a little; they were dumb enough to try and rob a liquor store.

Mentat: He didn't attack him outright.  He confronted Zimmerman in his car and Zimmerman wouldn't identify himself.  Trayvon then ran away and waited for Zimmerman to follow him, which he did.


That's precisely why the great danger out of this is not more riots, but a lot more George Zimmermans. A lot of people are going to feel emboldened to act out their prejudicial suspicions as if they were facts. And as long as they kill that person, depending on the laws where they live, they won't have to be as concerned that they'll face any real consequences for doing so. Besides inflaming racial perceptions on all sides, it creates more everyday paranoia, weakening the social fabric along more than one dimension.

skinink: Oh well. On to the civil suit to sue him for what little he has. I hope at least his gun permit was yanked.


They can't pull his permit, because legally, he committed no crime. That's what self-defense asserts: it admits to the act (homicide in this case), but argues that it was not a crime. The jury agreed, and so the State has no reason to pull his permit. Sorry; one more scary gun on the street.

As for the civil suit, Florida has a statute forbidding that in self-defense cases.

IanMoone: sjcousins: 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?

That's just retarded sir.

Martin's GF, whom he spent the last 30+ minutes of his life talking to, told the court that Martin told her he was going to take care of that {racist term for a white person} that was following him.  She advised him not to (not like the 911 dispatcher who just said "we don't need you to do that" which is code for a police order to NOT doing something).


Martin saying that does not prove he started the fight the any more than Zimmerman saying 'these assholes always get away' and following him proves Zimmerman started it. What's retarded was that full retard taking something as fact when it clearly was not and blaming some race industry for anything that didn't fit his preconceived notions.
