phygz: Jabberwookiee: phygz: Jabberwookiee: phygz: Things I learned in this thread-

Those who are outraged know nothing about the case or the trial other than what the media told them they should know.

I still can't decide whether I like pancakes or waffles better.

When in doubt, choose tacos.

Only west of Texas. Everywhere else they think Taco Bell is "Mexican Food"

This is not true. We have many fine Mexican restaurants here in Texas. It's just that so many of us are farking stupid.

sorry, should have said west of Mississippi, or everywhere east of Texas thinks Taco Bell is "Mexican Food"


s'alright

you may have many wishes fulfilled with taco flavored kisses

mr lawson: So a Hispanic shoots a black and is acquitted by women, but it's still white men's fault.

He's half white and uses a white name.

Heh...nice. Not Hispanic enough for ya? Maybe if he had the last name of Hernandez or something he'd be more Hispanic in your eyes? I had no idea that a name made more or less "white".

Again, he's half white. For some reason, white people keep trying to label him as solely "Hispanic."

So what? He supposedly identifies himself as Hispanic. So who are we to say "nope you are wrong, you are half white and have a white name so you are white." Why do you get to decide what race he is over him?

Who's saying he's white? He's half-and-half, not one or the other.

Well, you responded to someone saying he Hispanic by stating he's half-white and uses a white name. So you were just clarifying that he is a half-white Hispanic that uses a "white" name? Again I don't know why you had to point out that he uses a "White name" I didn't think that was important to race. Dave Chappelle has a "white name" does that mean something too? Maybe he should change it to a less white name...


*facepalm*

No, I'm clarifying that he's half-white. Back to square one.

I don't know if George Zimmerman was guilty or not. I do know he was found not guilty in his trial. The fact that the Obama administration is seeking to file Civil Rights changed against Zimmerman, sickens me.

Obama will join such shady presidents as Reagan, and King Bush I in side stepping the fifth amendment. (Vincent Chin and Rodney King respectively).

If you are an American, you shouldn't be ok with this at all. The whole purpose of the fifth amendment is so the government doesn't get two chances to take you down.

Fox News will be having a field day with this, and rightfully so. Ironically I'm sure they'll act like this is the first time this has ever happened, ignoring Reagan and Bush's indiscretions. 

Politicians are all the same and all scum.


/sounds stupid and fat
 
2013-07-14 04:41:30 AM
Anyone who isn't not-guilty in this case is devoid of all logic. It actually requires deliberate ignorance and making up facts and pure speculation to make this anything other than self defense. It drives me mad that the world is still this farked up.

Zimmerman followed Martin because he fit the profile of suspects who had recently committed crimes in that area. Yes, those suspects were black. Trayvon Martin was skulking through the neighborhood. Yes, he was just trying to get home. There was no way for Zimmerman or anyone else to know that. Zimmerman then called the non-emergency line. The operator (not a police officer) said, about following Trayvon "we don't need you to do that" and Zimmerman said "ok." In the 4 minutes Martin could have chosen to just go home like he intended, he chose to confront Zimmerman with violent force. This force included pinning Zimmerman to the ground, punching Zimmerman in the face, and slamming Zimmerman's head into the concrete. Zimmerman, fearing for his life, fired his gun once and ended his assailant's life.

These are the facts of the case as presented in the trial. There are no other facts. Everyone is just making a bunch of shiat up and it's stupid and disgusting. You never have the right to assault someone who is not actively trying to hurt you and all of your bleeding heart emotion doesn't change the fact that it was a barbaric act on the part of Trayvon Martin that caused Zimmerman to fear for his life, which resulted in Martin's death. Skin color has nothing to do with it.

Martin called Zimmerman a "creepy cracker" and turned back to attack Martin. What if a white man had done the same thing? What if a guy that looked like a skinhead told someone on the phone, same scenario, that "a weird n*gg*r" was following him, and proceeded to turn around and start beating the shiat out of someone over it. There's no difference. The skin colors have no relevance. The ages have no relevance. There are just the facts and if you can't get over that, I pray you never serve on a jury.

Red Shirt Blues: Bathia_Mapes: Molavian: oregon fubaralas: Zimmerman will lose on appeal though. But by then, the damage will be done.

What appeal?

Exactly what I'd like to know. Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges. You appeal if you've been found guilty, not if you've been acquited.

You just stumbled upon one of the best troll lines in the thread.

Dimensio: EbolaNYC: Dimensio: Southern100: Dimensio: Speculating, without basis, on actions that Mr. Zimmerman "could" have taken does not constitute an explanation of the specific actions that Mr. Zimmerman did take.

My apologies, I thought the "Could" was implied, since the facts of the this particular case has already proven that he performed no specific actions that would have justified the use of deadly force by TM.

EbolaNYC disagrees with your assessment, though as yet EbolaNYC has not identified the specific actions through which such justification would have existed.

Jesus you're thick. I was referring to the law itself. It's flawed because anyone can claim stand your ground at the end of a deadly confrontation. Had the tables been turned and it was Trayvon who was left alive, he could claim stand your ground after being threatened by Zimmerman. Try following me home after I try to get away from you and chances are I will at some point turn around and confront you too. Maybe it's puppy dogs and rainbows on the streets where you live, but a lot of people would see that as a threat and act accordingly.

I am aware of no state in which the act of "following", absent any other qualifiers, justifies the use of deadly force.


Well good luck with that faulty reading comprehension you have going on. Have a great night.

There are unfortunately a lot of woulda/coulda/shouldas in this case.  There are a TON of things on BOTH sides that could have been done to avoid this tragedy.  As soon as it becomes physical though, all cards are off the table.

Many, many, MANY years ago *cough*, my parents always taught me to avoid getting into arguments, or fights, because you just *never know* when the other person will have a knife, or a gun.  So I always avoided those types of situations as often as possible when growing up.  Today though, it seems like there's more and more people who go out LOOKING for fights.  It certainly seems a lot worse now than it did when I was growing up, and I often find myself wondering "Why"..

The only action that you described was "following". Inferring that you were identifying "following" as the action of Mr. Zimmerman that justified the use of deadly force by Mr. Martin was therefore the only logical conclusion. If that conclusion is in error, then the error is a result of you not addressing my initial question by identifying the specific action of Mr. Zimmerman that did justify the use of deadly force against him.

Did they takes away his gun?

Is he going to have to stab his way to an acquittal now?

Gave him back his gun, kept his bullets.

They probably just gave him 1 bullet like Barney Fife. But he has to keep it in his shirt pocket.


Given the facts as I understand them, I'll volunteer to donate a thousand rounds of high quality self defense ammo to him if he'll move into my neighborhood.

tollbooth_willy: Don't remember seeing that.  I remember seeing something about he would have "put his hands on her" if he couldn't get out of the house, or something along those lines, and I'm not a fan.  But let's not forget that her story changed as well...the door didn't open because it was jammed, then she had to go back in because she forgot her car keys.  Which is it?  If it was the car keys, she definitely could have gotten out through the working garage door.  The fact that she went back 4 months later and started a fight with him, in direct violation of a sitting judge's order, doesn't help with the "he MUST have been the aggressor" stance.

The history that I mentioned with the gun?  She was convicted in May of 2012, after all of this crap (and then some) was brought up in court.  Thought you read all about the trial?



I haven't read every single thing that has been written about this case. I've read enough to know that both the husband and his two kids have changed their stories numerous times. Both of his kids at one point or another have corroborated her version of events, with the son even saying at one point that she fired a warning shot at his dad because his dad was beating on her.

Sniper061: 2) Use "fighting words" against Trayvon to provoke a fight

That's pretty much it. Following him around, calling the police, etc. do not make him the aggressor. Neither does pulling out his pistol and shooting the guy currently beating the crap out of him. There was no evidence of either of those events occurring. Regardless of the public opinion, the lack of evidence means there is just gobs of room for reasonable doubt, especially with the injuries that Zimmerman suffered. Reasonable doubt means no conviction if the jury is doing their job.


yeah it can't be proved. i doubt he meant to start a fight but i'd bet a months pay he made a comment that was offensive enough to start one. let's keep in mind that zimmerman had no legal standing to question martin's right to be there.

it's way late or early morning depending and i'm going to bed.

Both of his kids at one point or another have corroborated her version of events, with the son even saying at one point that she fired a warning shot at his dad because his dad was beating on her.


I'll admit that I didn't research it that thoroughly either. But it doesn't look like the younger son's story changed, and the older son apparently didn't back mom up:
"
She was convicted of three counts - one against Gray and each son - even though Gray's older son later changed his story, saying he was never in fear for his life as he first told police.

Corey says the son never corroborated Alexander's version of events, but she does admit that his story changed, she says, even "after he had looked me in the eye and told me he was afraid."

"And the bottom line is the other child never changed his story. So I still have a victim" who said he was in fear."

Mom also claimed she fired the warning shot into the air, but the evidence showed the bullet was fired into the wall at head height.  So since 3/4 of them have been caught in at least one lie, maybe we should listen to what the 9 year old has to say?
 
2013-07-14 04:59:47 AM

I'd be willing to bet that if George Zimmerman wasn't a racist before this event (and there's certainly a lot of evidence to indicate he was not), he probably will be now.

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.

The Prosecution should have gone for Assault with a Deadly Weapon in addition to Murder in this case. That would have brought in a section of Florida law that makes it clear that you can't claim self defense if you initiate a confrontation while armed. So then if the jury felt he was guilty of the assault charge they would also have to get him for murder as well.


What confrontation did you imagine Zimmerman initiated?  trayvon had injuries to his knuckles from punching and no injuries from any fight.  Calling 911 is not creating a confrontation.  No words spoken would justify getting punched (and only Zimmerman was punched).  When trayvon started punching and started slamming zimmerman's head onto the concrete, that was the assault you speak of and zimmerman defended himself.  Some people don't like a firearm being used in a fist fight but that's not the real world.  If Zimmerman were female and presented with the same injuries and story, there would have been no question about the use of force.  Trayvon wasn't 12 like they portray him in pictures.  He could have easily beaten Zimmerman to death or severely injured him.  There is no evidence that Zimmerman even threw a punch.  And in case you haven't figured it out from trayvon's suspensions and other evidence that was suppressed at trial as irrlevant, trayvon was a thug.  He was at dad's house during a school week because he was a thug.  His prior act that justified his suspensions was when they found burglary tools, stolen jewelry and drugs on him at school.

Oh well, he will be farked in the civil case and his life is ruined now anyway. Still a HELL of a lot better off than Trayvon Martin, but at least he won't get a pass to an easy life.

Nice that you wish that on a man found not guilty of any crime.  NBC and the State of Florida will will be paying for his lavish and secluded life.

Technically, a verbal threat may constitute justification for use of force, though a threat is arguably distinct from a mere "comment", and no evidence indicates that any threats were issued by Mr. Zimmerman (and, contrary to Curious's belief, his willingness to "bet a months pay" is not itself evidence of the issuance of an offensive comment).

Good verdict. While I could understand a manslaughter charge leaking through, this wasn't a murder. Both parties made very poor decisions that night and under FL law, Zimmerman should have walked.

The gun is garbage. Have you seen it? It's all bent up. The tube is bent up, the slide is unable to close because of it.. Probably because of the point blank shot. The gun will never be used again.

The Kel-Texc PF9 is a locked breech recoil operated pistol. As such the barrel, or 'tube' as you refer to it, tilts after the slide recoils a few millimeters. TMYK


they should introduce a new model using skittles for the handgrip.  Samuel Jackson should do the voice over: "Taste the rainbow, Mutha Farker."

Lionel Mandrake: NOT GUILTY!!

JUST LIKE OJ!!


This.  I haven't used the phrase "miscarriage of justice" in almost a decade, but this seems like a good time to dust it off.  On the upside, Zimmerman's life is still ruined, so atleast he has that going for him.

Southern100: LAPDScanner just reported 5 black males shot somebody, and are fleeing on foot.

Trying to find a news station with a live feed, but looks like all the news stations in LA have rolled up the sidewalks.


OMG! Someone got shot in LA? Should I take precautions?

I wonder if Trayvon would have wanted these guys to half-heartedly block the pedestrian crossing for a few hours in his honor.

Trayvon Martin would have been leading the charge. Fact.


Fun Fact: Trayvon would have wanted a large protest.  One that all his neighbors attended so he could burglarize their empty houses for drug money.   That's what he did to to get suspended from school and sent to dads.

skankboy: I don't know if George Zimmerman was guilty or not. I do know he was found not guilty in his trial. The fact that the Obama administration is seeking to file Civil Rights changed against Zimmerman, sickens me.

Obama will join such shady presidents as Reagan, and King Bush I in side stepping the fifth amendment. (Vincent Chin and Rodney King respectively).

If you are an American, you shouldn't be ok with this at all. The whole purpose of the fifth amendment is so the government doesn't get two chances to take you down.

Fox News will be having a field day with this, and rightfully so. Ironically I'm sure they'll act like this is the first time this has ever happened, ignoring Reagan and Bush's indiscretions. 

Politicians are all the same and all scum.


/sounds stupid and fat


Citation please. I went out for my Bday tonight and haven't heard a bit of this. Assuming you aren't joking, please point me to an article.

so if i happen to see you on the street and start questioning your right to be there you'll be cool with it?

Is that what "legal standing" entails? I'd probably tell you to fark off and keep walking.

what right do i have to question you?

People are free to ask each other whatever they want, for the most part. You don't need any kind of special right to talk to people.

Southern100: Ya know what?

I'd be willing to bet that if George Zimmerman wasn't a racist before this event (and there's certainly a lot of evidence to indicate he was not), he probably will be now.


The dude mentored several black kids and help raise money for a predominately black church and people think he is a racist? Amazing....

oregon fubaralas: No comment is offensive enough to assault someone, legally.


ok but there are lots of fights due to folks being, let's say, impolite. and the vast majority don't end up with someone getting killed.

"mommy he stated it" bang seems like a shiatty situation. and one that could have been avoided.
