I think you mean "white Hispanics" (new race courtesy of CNN - the White House's idea of a REAL news network).

Looking forward to checking that box on the next census form.

teenage mutant ninja rapist: Wrong. Following the kid in the first place is what started the fight.


Not legally, no. And in a court of law, that's what counts. Surprising, isn't it?

Jose628: Michael Moore Verified account
@MMFlint
Trayvon was the 1 who's life was being threatened--by a guy w/ a gun chasing after him! Trayvon had the RIGHT 2 do ANYTHING 2 defend himself
https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/356243570098835459


Because Michael Moore is an authority on level headed reporting and never slants anything to fit his viewpoints so he would never lie or tell a half to zero truth statement.

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.


You keep saying that but we just had a trial about it and a jury determined that isn't the case. Following someone isn't illegal.

make me some tea: So, where are we meeting to riot and burn down a poor neighborhood?


"Burn all the free housing. Torch the food stamp outlets. Pound your free phone to bits. Let's stick it to the man."

Can't loot the Korean (insert assimilated ethic group here) stores anymore, they are too well armed. Damn, turns out everyone but us  is too well armed.

Well, have a nice day.

barneyfifesbullet: ALL OF THE EVIDENCE says the guy was just defending himself. A jury agreed quickly.

The race industry got their ass handed to them on this. The rest of us laugh at you.

Now, Zimmerman can look forward to suing the shiat out of NBC. Get the big dollars dude, you deserve it all.


Ready, FIRE! Aim

How's it feel being lodged in an actor's foot?

Mrtraveler01: creepy ass-cracka: No. Those are racial slurs uttered by Martin.

Based on what? Zimmerman's word?

Do black people really say "cracka" still? I thought that was a dated term to use.


Have you completely ignored this trial until tonight? The prosecution's star witness claimed Martin used the term along with some other retarded stuff before running into a bullet that night.

Hold on Zimmerman trial, Im'a let you finish, but the Rodney King / LAPD trial had the most inflammatory verdict of all time. OF ALL TIME!

Glad to see the guy who was trying to protect his neighborhood walk. it's a pity how emotionally-manipulated some people still are by network television.

If you think Zimmerman was ever a murderer, then you need to kill your TV and read a book.


You cannot be serious.

Now sue NBC and get your ruined life back, George Zimmerman.
 
2013-07-13 11:12:26 PM  

tbeatty: Zimmerman will now sue and win a case for malicious prosecution.



Nobody ever wins a case for malicious prosecution anymore... prosecutors are basically immune, especially when the jury was out more than 10 hours.

Black people complaining about racism apparently.  I'd say like the "gay industry" but we all know that also involves rainbow branding.

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.

Why do people who didn't watch the trial, or even educate themselves about the subject want to comment on it so badly? Is it a need to feel superior? because you just look stupid.


Nah...more boredom than anything else.

That and this is the hot thread on Fark at the moment so why not join in the insanity.
 
2013-07-13 11:12:56 PM  
George Zimmerman couldn't wait to leave the court so he could go riot. Fact.

Seriously. These farkwits (Moore included) make me ashamed to be a commie-ass liberal.

What part of "we do not convict people of murder when there's reasonable doubt" is so hard to get through these farker's heads?

It's hard to get water-logged swamplands to burn down.

maybe the third time the castle...er...state will stay up and not sink into the swamp.

I beg to differ. Louisiana had some huge smog issues for weeks because some marshlands caught fire.

Not at all. The jury makes no determination on what went on that night.  They only found that the prosecution did not meet the elements of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt.  Say you believe what prosecution argued and disbelieve everything the defense stated and Zimmerman's story.  Zimmerman followed Martin, there was a confrontation of some kind, Zimmerman suffered superficial injuries and shot Martin. There simply isn't enough there to prove 2nd degree murder or even Manslaughter without having to make too many inferences.  The jury followed the instructions and found him not guilty.  That doesn't mean Zimmerman is innocent, it just means there wasn't enough proof he was guilty.  The prosecution didn't have a lot to work with and probably did a few things they wish they had done differently now.  However even with the best presentation possible of the facts they had available, it was a tough case.

Put me in team French toast.  Some scrambled eggs with a little bit of milk and cinnamon to drench some stale bread before a quick trip through a non-stick pan to heat it up.  Top it with a little butter and some honey and I am set.

Wow, 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.

iq_in_binary: Yes, a 911 call where Zimmerman admitted to pursuing Martin. Despite being told not to.


He wasn't being "told" anything. It was a suggestion ("We dont need you to do that") that was given by a non-officer. a 911 operator is not a cop, and cannot give commands to anyone.

/why is it so hard for people to stick to facts?
 
2013-07-13 11:14:07 PM  

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 over

I 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 happen
 
2013-07-13 11:14:09 PM  

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".


Conservatives don't like drug users and are ok with them getting killed.

Please work on your scenario skills.

Nancy Grace has gone from near-aneurysm to blubbering about how this all should've been "black and white."  Good choice of words, Nancy.
