Millennium: rhiannon: ontariolightning: @911BUFF: NBC REPORTS ANTI WAR AND ANTI RACISM ACTIVIST GROUPS CALLS FOR EMERGENCY RALLY IN SAN FRANCISCO TONIGHT TO PROTEST GEORGE ZIMMERMAN VERDICT

Not sleeping well I see. Ask your mom to heat up some milk, and give you a cookie.

Hold on a sec here. I get the anti-racism groups doing this: a likely racist did not go to jail, and they're upset about that. Makes perfect sense, even if I disagree.

But anti-war groups? Why are they holding a rally connected to this?


Not sure. Probably also a racist group due to all the black members in war. But really, why can't we be friends, right?

Why not?  Isn't that the basis of Stand Your Ground laws?


No, it's not.
There is no stand your ground law first off.
Second, what people think the stand your ground law is, is merely a part of the law that says if you're in a place you have a right to be, you do not have to retreat from force brought against you and instead can meet it with force of your own.
That's all.

Peki: I don't know if it's because I'm female, or maybe race does have something to do with it (I'm white), but I am super paranoid anytime someone makes more than three turns in a row behind me. Yes, I have been followed. No, it was not by cops. Yes, they were going to kill me. My response each time was to drive to the nearest police station. Boy they stop being interested at that point. Zimmerman had the responsibility as the adult, the knowledge as someone semi-trained in this sort of thing, and the advice of those in positions of authority to NOT make the decision he did to get out of the car, which thereby started the entire sequence of events leading to Martin's death.


I find it amazing that you had someone follow you and you want to a well let area.  Somehow, you are not expecting Martin to have done the same thing.  Why are you not admonishing Martin for doing the opposite of you, and go confront the character?

If I had a black son, first of all he wouldn't live in the Confederate state of Florida. And second of all, I'd ship his ass to France where he'd be loved.

The black folk in America are doomed. Blame who you will, but if you're black, and have the means. Get out now. Or save up and get your kids out.  You are 12% of the population, most of whom are disenfranchised, a very minor political bloc. In 10 years 6%. In 20, less than 1%.

Treygreen13: To be clear, that wasn't me who said that. And Zimmerman is immune to being sued criminally or civilly in this matter in Florida. So it doesn't matter anymore.


Sorry to attribute it to you...however, it looks like he can be sued:

Martin's family can still file a civil suit against Zimmerman under Florida's Wrongful Death Act, which requires proof that Martin's death was caused by the negligence of another person or entity. To prove negligence under the statute, it must be shown that Zimmerman owed Martin a legal duty, that the duty owed was breached, and that an injury was caused to Martin by Zimmerman's breach.

skullkrusher:

well, that's not rational then. Sure, he may be morally guilty of something but I don't think he is morally guilty of intentional murder. I have no ...

I don't know how old you are, but when 4 LAPD officers were acquitted of beating the crap out of Rodney King and people rioted, the 4 officers were charged again in federal court. IIRC, two of them were found guilty. It would not have happened if not for riots. Even if it doesn't do any good, the possibility that it might do some good--a feeling of empowerment at the very least--is more than they're likely to get through traditional channels. African-Americans are what? 15% of the population? They have very little political (economic) power and it's decreasing every day.

quiotu: Legitimate question here. Was there a point when Zimmerman actually prevented Martin from getting home? Because last time I heard information on the case, Martin turned and approached Zimmerman. That's not standing your ground... Martin could've gone all the way home and never stopped, and nothing would've happened.

Clearly they both did stupid things in the altercation, but your 'stand his ground' comment is bullshiat. Just sayin.


It's not standing his ground, but that doesn't matter. SYG only states that you don't have a duty to retreat in certain situations. If we follow this story out, Martin did retreat, and when he couldn't shake Zimmerman, he turned around: SYG woulldn't apply in such a situation, but ordinary self-defense would.

However, even if this occurred, signs point to a de-escalation on Zimmerman's part. Either he thought better of following Martin and returned to his car before things even began, and then Martin followed him, or a fight started but then Zimmerman ran back to the car, and Martin pursued. Either way ends that hostile encounter, and then Martin started the next one. That's where his self-defense ends and Zimmerman's begins, even if Zimmerman started a previous fight, because if there was a previous fight, it was over by then.

Mrtraveler01: ontariolightning: @911BUFF: NBC REPORTS ANTI WAR AND ANTI RACISM ACTIVIST GROUPS CALLS FOR EMERGENCY RALLY IN SAN FRANCISCO TONIGHT TO PROTEST GEORGE ZIMMERMAN VERDICT.

Uh yeah...here is the emergency rally.

http://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/local/Activist-Group-Organize-Post-Zi mm erman-Rally-in-SF-215405071.html


An anti-war and anti-racism activist group called an emergency march in San Francisco in protest of the "not guilty" verdict in the George Zimmerman trial.

The ANDSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) Coalition and the Party for Socialism and Liberation called for the march after a jury acquitted Zimmerman of all charges in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.

The march began at 8 p.m. at 24th and Mission Streets.  Our helicopter flew over the scene at 9 p.m. and found about 200 people marching down Mission Street, many carrying yellow signs that read things like "the whole system is racist" and "the people say guilty."

Or as they call it in San Francisco...Saturday night.


The anachronym is ANSWER. Typical sloppy media. They organized anti-war protests back during the Bush wars and apparently are still around. I would probably join them tonight for the hell of it if I was in San Francisco now

Tatsuma: skullkrusher: what they're not missing is delicious, delicious bacon

Yeah trust me, bacon is worth giving up over Shabbat. You have no idea what you are missing out on.


My friend was the live in maintenance/building manager at a Jewish community center that had full proper Shabbat meals every week.  He got a plate made for him and all the leftovers he wanted, which of course there were plenty, so many a Shabbat 2.0 meal was had at his place.


My belabored point is, Tatsuma, I think I actually agree with you.  Those were some damn good stick to the ribs meals. I mean, bacon is indeed awesome, but doesn't always leave you so full and satisfied on its own.

I agree with Tatsuma?

destroying property in your neighborhood because a latino dude was acquitted of murdering a black kid? That doesn't sound really rational

From another perspective:

Having it declared justice to follow around a young man who has done nothing wrong with a gun until he "stands his ground," then shooting him because he's winning the fight you baited him into basically means you and your offspring do not legally have the right to exist in public.

I thought the point of "stand your ground" is that you don't have to go home. Either way, I didn't mean it in the legal sense. I meant it in the sense that he was being followed and either chose or was forced into choosing to confront his pursuer.

Well-spoken. More clear and succinct than my own response.

Except annoying someone or creeping them out by following them around does not make it legally okay to beat them up or even throw a single first punch. You could try calling the police, but even if it's your ex cussing you out on the street, following you 24/7 and screaming at you and making general threats, good farking luck getting anything done about that. At least in my state, they have to be making specific and credible threats before you can even think about the police doing anything except brushing you off. Being followed is not something that legally justifies a follow up 'self-defense' beating in any state I know of.


Like I said--I'm not talking about what's legal per se. I'm talking about right and wrong, which is what the legal system is supposed to represent.
