It's OK to kill in FL if you say that.

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?


Keep watching. I'm getting tipsy and might even break out the stories I blurt out when drinking with cops.

F--k it, let's talk about stir fry.

Honestly, I think it's pretty mediocre, but the wife loves it. Rice noodles, beef, eggs, veggies (carrots, green beans, lima beans, peas, diced potatoes, corn), soy sauce and spices (garlic, pepper). I dice up the beef, cook it up with eggs, then put it together with the noodles and veggies. Soy to taste. Fast, simple, easy.

Nothing to riot over.

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 Creuset

we 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


I got knock off Martha Stewart enameled cast iron skillet for a fraction of the price and it was great until the enamel flaked off years later.  Flaxseed oil is excellent for seasoning if someone wants to give it a try.  Heat the pot and oil it up then bake it on.  Don't put it on too thick and it won't just become sticky.  Put a few coats on if you're nervous about it coming off.  Don't wash with soap, ever, or cook acidic foods for a little while and rinse quickly when you do.

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 an attorney (an actual "legal professional") I can say without question that you are FOS.

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.

The similarities are that neither the rape victim or Zimmerman did anything illegal.

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 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

You 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.


??? No evidence??
You have the physical evidence that had Zimmerman on his back and the real evidence that he was getting attacked, punched and having his head slammed against the sidewalk?? I am thinking if Trevon never attacked him for LEGALLY BEING ABLE TO FOLLOW HIM... key word legally... that maybe travon wouldn't be dead right now? and Obviously you can see that? or better yet the jury saw that and were able to see all of the facts and make the INFORMED decision and not an emotioinal one based on what trevon would of/could of said. Zimmerman was attacked by a kid who had a history of fighting... told his girlfriend that some crazy ass cracker was following him and then jumped out and attacked Zimmerman... and unfortunately he choose the wrong guy to attack. Maybe if trevon would of just walked up to Zommerman and said excuse me sir I am just going back to where my parents live nstead of attacking him he might be alive today? .. I don't know .. what do you think?

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!"


There would be no double jeopardy issue, since the federal charge is completely different from the state charge. Lots of people have been tried for the same offense at the state and federal level in the past. It's how the Feds got a lot of various racists in the 60s when the states either wouldn't get them or they were obviously getting away with stuff.

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.


Depends on the options. Martin might not have thought he had any. Zimmerman could have stayed in the car. Zimmerman was 29. Martin was 17. Who has the burden of responsibility?

WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT???

Seriously, cast iron isn't for everyone - I use mine damn near daily but the SO can't stand it.  But for good metal's sake, put up a Craigslist post or throw it to a thrift store!

My former roommate found a rusted to hell and back cast iron skillet near the creek on the edge of our property.  I'm *just* about done sanding it, because a) it's a goddamn shame to let it go to waste and b) even counting the labor of love as billable hours, it's still cheaper than buying an equivalent one.  This one's thick as heck and even with the rust biting away at that a bit, it will last a lifetime and the some with a bit of love.

Hell, the one I have now my dad found in my grandma's things and it's decades old if it's a day.  And before he found it I asked him to keep an eye out for me at the regular auctions / estate auctions he went to on a regular clip (Lionel collector).  Over dozens of sales, the only cast iron he ever found were two tiny 4" skillets (for a single egg and mini-cornbread predivided into triangles apparently).  People just *don't* give that sh-t up, even when literally down to the wrapping paper left behind when the person of the house died is included in a large lot at the auction.

Anyway.  Don't get it wet - or if you do, clean it off and heat it up -, don't use soap (salt + paper towel or scrubbing pad + water + heat), and rust should never ever be an issue.

As far as your crepes go, decent electronic non-stick griddle is how my mom always made her Polish crepes when I was growing up.  Worked like a charm.

Ah yes, Wil Wheaton, the brilliant law scholar that he is.
/sigh

I don't think he's necessarily expressing a legal opinion.  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.


"Stalking" GZ never stalked anyone
"unarmed teenager" TM used the concrete as a weapon
"paranoid" GZ showed no signs of paranoia
"racist" GZ showed no signs of racism

All of it adds up to a D-list celeb who knows fark all about the case, using his anus to type out some words.

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?

Its farked up either way. Either the cops look like they're totally unprepared to protect innocent life and property if they don't come out in force.....or if they do its to keep the lower classes safely in line and make sure they don't have the ability to project their grievances in the public square.

2013-07-13 11:59:27 PM

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.


Because they examined the body for injuries.  Trayvon had knuckle injuries and a gunshot wound.  No other injuries.  He wasn't punched or scratched.  Zimmerman had injuries to his nose and the back of his head.  He didn't have anything but injuries consistent with being beaten by Trayvon's fist and concrete sidewalk.   It is very clear that the fight started off very one-sided and ended abruptly with the gunshot. Zimmerman didn't land a single blow.  Kind of hard to start a fight without the injuries associate with an aggressor.
 
2013-07-13 11:59:33 PM

Demonrats: The similarities are that neither the rape victim or Zimmerman did anything illegal.


Except for the whole stalking someone thing, it's illegal everywhere to just follow someone for the purposes of intimidation. Also for all we know, and there's no way he'd fess up to it, he might have had his gun drawn the whole time. In which case Martin would've been well within his rights to stand his ground.
 
2013-07-13 11:59:37 PM
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.

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.
