ko_kyi: 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.Who invited you?
skullkrusher: Wretched: 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.Two words for you: Le Creusetwe have a Le Creuset crockpot and while they are mad expensive, the thing really is pretty awesome and worth the price considering you'll have it forever
iq_in_binary: Penman: iq_in_binary: Penman: Pincy: 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.So we have video of how this whole thing went down?A 911 call and the injuries to Zimmerman.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.You can turn around and violently attack someone because they're walking down the same street as you? "Yes Officer, I thought he was pursuing me, I just didn't like the way he looked, so I beat the shiat out of him"In fact it seems like Trayvon might be the racist one, assuming that the Mexican guy is out to get him.Ok, I'm heavy on the self defense opinion myself, I think we may have started off on the wrong foot.Let me explain, I have insight into the legal system that you do not have. I was a legal investigator. A good one, I charged $150/hr for static surveillance and $225/hr plus the rates of other investigators helping me for dynamic surveillance. That's right, my job was following people.Let's get something straight, following people in a menacing manner IS against the law. For us? Unless we we're in confined quarters like a bar or strip club or restaurant, the general rule is stay the fark outside of a 20-30 yard bubble. Why? Because any closer can be considered menacing. Investigators have been charged with intimidation, stalking, disorderly behavior, you name it for trailing people. Because guess what, constantly following people around IS generally considered in the court of law to be threatening behavior.As a "legal professional" (don't kid yourself, I was hired muscle f ...
eagles95: Oh shait.....Skinny Al Sharpton is in full rant mode on MSNBC right now
Pincy: 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 overI 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 happenYou 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.

Millennium: Aaaaaand here's the link I was looking for. No plan to avoid double-jeopardy, or, indeed, any plan at all. Just the simple, standard cry of "Do more!"
Propain_az: Peki: Propain_az: 911 Dispatchers are not the police. They have no authority. Don't be stupid. You know better.It was a "reasonable" request meant to preserve life. The results of Zimmerman getting out of the car are exactly what the dispatcher was trying to avoid.So? There is no authority behind it. I would think that it would be reasonable for Mr. Martin to not confront Mr. Zimmerman.

Zimmerman, regardless of the trial verdict, took actions that ultimately resulted in him killing a teenager. Sounds like the teenager made plenty of bad decisions too, but nonetheless, no one should have died that night.
jmr61: Weaver95: if florida burns to the ground before monday morning...would anyone actually care?Nope. So long as Key West wasn't involved.

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?herpa derpa doo?

Without Fail: I didn't follow the trial.But I did think that their needed to be one.
Tatsuma: skullkrusher: they're mostly reformers around these parts. Not much Shabbatting.Well they don't know what they are missing
purple kool-aid and a jigger of formaldehyde: How do you know that Zimmerman didn't start it by confronting that kid, the kid was scared because the creepy cracker was following him and defended himself and when Zimmerman started to get his ass kicked he killed him? That's just as plausible. Only those two know and one of them is dead so...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. Not saying that is what Zimmerman did, just saying looks like you could get away with doing that now.
Demonrats: The similarities are that neither the rape victim or Zimmerman did anything illegal.
arentol: Handy to know that in Florida you can murder anyone you like just by making sure they get a few licks in on you before you pull your gun and shoot them.
King Something: 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?Right to life, for one./this ruling effectively decriminalizes drive-by shootings, so long as the shooter exits the vehicle and chases the victim into a dark alley
