The judicial system worked exactly how it's supposed to. There was enough reasonable doubt to acquit, and that was how it should be. The judicial system convicts based on facts and should prove beyond a reasonable doubt, not convict based on public opinion.

Good to know that some hate-filled racist cannot attempt to murder someone by bashing their head in and have the victim also pay for self-defense through incarceration.

Justice will only be served if Zimmerman can successfully sue the estate of that racist for pain and suffering.

2013-07-13 10:44:03 PM  
My personal opinion:

Before the trial, I did no research, I only heard what the mainstream media reported, including the chopped up 911 call NBC played.

When the trial started, I listened to it every day at work, starting out rooting for the prosecution.

As the case went on, I started to realize that the case had been mischaracterized in the media and that there was in fact Reasonable Doubt. I saw that the prosecution was unable to establish a consistent narrative of what happened, and relied only on attacking Zimmerman's character and evoking emotion for Martin. I am sad that Martin is dead, it should not have happened. Both men made stupid mistakes that night. I don't know Zimmerman well enough to make a call on if he truly had ill-will in his heart. But I am happy a not guilty verdict was reached, because it means that evidence and the process of law have overridden appeals to emotion.

Irresistably stupid force collided with immovably stupid object.  What is left is what could be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

Personally, I thought manslaughter would have been correct, but I wasn't on the jury.  You can't pack heat then go around in a situation that may lead to a confrontation.  In addition, you can't jump a dude planning to beat his ass and assume you will come out all right either.

Thus, Florida retains its tag.  As someone once said here, Florida is to stupid what Japan is to fetish.

Raiden333: My personal opinion:

Before the trial, I did no research, I only heard what the mainstream media reported, including the chopped up 911 call NBC played.

When the trial started, I listened to it every day at work, starting out rooting for the prosecution.

As the case went on, I started to realize that the case had been mischaracterized in the media and that there was in fact Reasonable Doubt. I saw that the prosecution was unable to establish a consistent narrative of what happened, and relied only on attacking Zimmerman's character and evoking emotion for Martin. I am sad that Martin is dead, it should not have happened. Both men made stupid mistakes that night. I don't know Zimmerman well enough to make a call on if he truly had ill-will in his heart. But I am happy a not guilty verdict was reached, because it means that evidence and the process of law have overridden appeals to emotion.


Didn't they find Zimmerman liable in the wrongful death suit. They at least recognized he was negligent in his actions.

Apparently - a jury stacked with mothers was of the same mindset of Trayvon's own mother - based on the content of Trayvon's text messages. He was needing the discipline of a man. Unfortunately, it didn't come from his father. A sad story, but it likely didn't start with meeting Zimmerman. It only ended that way.

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.

2013-07-13 10:51:18 PM  
I think it was a clear case of manslaughter due to Zimmerman's negligence. Unfortunately the over reached trying to argue a murder case instead of arguing manslaughter. All they would have had to prove is that George Zimmerman actions caused the unnecessary death of Trayvon Martin and nothing involving motive and such.

Personally I do not think it's right that in Florida you can pretty much provoke someone, shoot them dead if they start kicking your ass, and then get off free claiming self defense.

You don't go to jail just for being proven a racist asshole.

I thought that the only people who could be racist was the white folk.
Zimmerman is Hispanic.


I'm sure you're trolling, but you should be aware that there can be significant racial tension between Hispanic and black communities.

otoh, they really didn't have much to work with other than Zimmerman being White Black. Maybe if he had been bona fide White this railroading may have worked.

Mighty Taternuts: Raiden333: As the case went on, I started to realize that the case had been mischaracterized in the media and that there was in fact Reasonable Doubt. I saw that the prosecution was unable to establish a consistent narrative of what happened, and relied only on attacking Zimmerman's character and evoking emotion for Martin. I am sad that Martin is dead, it should not have happened. Both men made stupid mistakes that night. I don't know Zimmerman well enough to make a call on if he truly had ill-will in his heart. But I am happy a not guilty verdict was reached, because it means that evidence and the process of law have overridden appeals to emotion.

He chased a kid that did nothing wrong after the 911 operator told him not to, how is that not ill-will?


The operator does not have the authority to issue a police command.

This is a satisfactory outcome.

Not a good outcome: this is not a thing to celebrate. No heroics were done here. This is not a thing to be honored.
Not a bad outcome: a man who did what he had to do to survive was not punished, when he easily could have been.
Not justice: there was no justice to be had. But not injustice either, which could have occurred.

Now healing can begin, if we will let it. It will be a long process, and a painful one. But at least we have not made the wounds worse.

Did you miss all those things they call "evidence" and "facts?"  Zimm was getting the shiat kicked out of him and his head being banged against the sidewalk.

The investigating officer knew not to arrest.  There were no charges until it got political and then the political types got their a$$es handed to them.  Zimmerman will now sue and win a case for malicious prosecution.  He should never have been charged.

Before the trial, I did no research, I only heard what the mainstream media reported, including the chopped up 911 call NBC played.

When the trial started, I listened to it every day at work, starting out rooting for the prosecution.

As the case went on, I started to realize that the case had been mischaracterized in the media and that there was in fact Reasonable Doubt. I saw that the prosecution was unable to establish a consistent narrative of what happened, and relied only on attacking Zimmerman's character and evoking emotion for Martin. I am sad that Martin is dead, it should not have happened. Both men made stupid mistakes that night. I don't know Zimmerman well enough to make a call on if he truly had ill-will in his heart. But I am happy a not guilty verdict was reached, because it means that evidence and the process of law have overridden appeals to emotion.

Didn't they find Zimmerman liable in the wrongful death suit. They at least recognized he was negligent in his actions.

Swedish panekakes as made by my Norwegian grandma.

1 cup of flour
2 cups milk (2% at least)
4 eggs
2 to 3 tablespoons of corn oil
A handful of sugar

Preheat griddle to 425, it's ready when droplets of water dance.

Combine ingredients and mix until smooth.  Some small lumps of flour are OK, but not a lot.

Once griddle is heated, melt a tablespoon of butter and spread it across.  Pour half a cup of batter on griddle.  Cook.

On serving, roll up some lingonberry preserve inside and enjoy.

Oh, and I called it in the other thread, the Jury was 5-1 with five for acquittal and 1 for manslaughter.

2013-07-13 10:59:11 PM  

heavymetal: I think it was a clear case of manslaughter due to Zimmerman's negligence. Unfortunately the over reached trying to argue a murder case instead of arguing manslaughter. All they would have had to prove is that George Zimmerman actions caused the unnecessary death of Trayvon Martin and nothing involving motive and such.

Personally I do not think it's right that in Florida you can pretty much provoke someone, shoot them dead if they start kicking your ass, and then get off free claiming self defense.


Sadly, this.

Hell naw. I already raised this issue, and voted for french toast and having home-grown blueberries and black raspberries over the top, with real maple syrup and lots of butter.

On the Zimmerman topic, I'm amazed and gratified we saw justice done. I hope Zimmerman and everyone else stays safe tonight, and every other night.

doccm9: heavymetal: I think it was a clear case of manslaughter due to Zimmerman's negligence. Unfortunately the over reached trying to argue a murder case instead of arguing manslaughter. All they would have had to prove is that George Zimmerman actions caused the unnecessary death of Trayvon Martin and nothing involving motive and such.

Personally I do not think it's right that in Florida you can pretty much provoke someone, shoot them dead if they start kicking your ass, and then get off free claiming self defense.

Sadly, this.


Yeah. this.

You had the mental faculties necessary to realize it's a bad idea to turn around and attack anyone who comes within 50 feet of you.


"Anyone who comes within 50 feet of you" is factually correct.

"Someone stalking you at night with a gun" is also correct.

Somewhere in between is the truth.

LargeCanine: 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".

Fleeing when shot? Where does that come from?


If you listen to the media Zimmerman was a 220lb MMA star who shot the 140 lb martin while he was begging for his life. It isn't surprising people are confused what happened.
 
2013-07-13 11:00:29 PM  

novalord2: The Martin's lawyer just compared this case to Emmet Till. Jesus Christ.

"You have a little black boy who was killed," said Benjamin Crump, an attorney for Martin's parents. "It's going to be reported in history books ,and 50 years from now, our children will talk about Trayvon Martin's case like we talk about Emmett Till."

The DBS: UNC_Samurai: Raiden333: My personal opinion:

Before the trial, I did no research, I only heard what the mainstream media reported, including the chopped up 911 call NBC played.

When the trial started, I listened to it every day at work, starting out rooting for the prosecution.

As the case went on, I started to realize that the case had been mischaracterized in the media and that there was in fact Reasonable Doubt. I saw that the prosecution was unable to establish a consistent narrative of what happened, and relied only on attacking Zimmerman's character and evoking emotion for Martin. I am sad that Martin is dead, it should not have happened. Both men made stupid mistakes that night. I don't know Zimmerman well enough to make a call on if he truly had ill-will in his heart. But I am happy a not guilty verdict was reached, because it means that evidence and the process of law have overridden appeals to emotion.

Didn't they find Zimmerman liable in the wrongful death suit. They at least recognized he was negligent in his actions.


What wrongful death suit?

RockSteadyUSMC: The judicial system worked exactly how it's supposed to. There was enough reasonable doubt to acquit, and that was how it should be. The judicial system convicts based on facts and should prove beyond a reasonable doubt, not convict based on public opinion.

/USMC MP

Exactly what I just said to my wife.  He's probably guilty but there is enough doubt.  This is how the judicial system is supposed to work.  Error on the side of letting guilty people go free rather than incarcerating the innocent.

He chased a kid that did nothing wrong after the 911 operator told him not to, how is that not ill-will?

The operator does not have the authority to issue a police command.


That isn't what I asked. Following an innocent person with the intent of stopping them because you feel they may have done something wrong is ill-will.

Actually, with how this case went, it's turning out more and more that it's a very good idea to preemptively shoot people who won't let you get outside of 50 feet of them.

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.

Bonanza Jellybean: I tend to find pancakes really dry and gummy, even with too much syrup. I like Belgian waffles, though.


That tends to happen if the batter is over-worked or made using a "hard" (high-gluten) wheat.  Ideally, pancake batter should be made with either pastry or all-purpose flour, and should be mixed as little as possible to avoid the formation of gluten (don't be afraid of a few small dry spots in the batter; they'll cook out).

OscarTamerz: Free at last, free at last, hallelujah he's free at last. Now let's go linch the DA and prosecutor for misconduct and make sure they get some serious jail time and get millions for the heroic IT guy who exposed their crimes against justice.


What I said above notwithstanding, it is true that the State's conduct (by which I mean not only the prosecution, but also the judge) in this case was outright disgraceful. In the end, it will do far more damage, at home and abroad to the reputation of America's criminal justice system than the verdict ever could. Even if the verdict had gone the other way, the State's conduct would still have been the greater stain, and I sincerely hope that at least some of those in my opposition, though they see this verdict as a stain, still see the prosecution's conduct as a greater one.

He bought an Arizona Iced Tea. Arizona has racist laws. He supported the state which passes those laws by patronizing a business which pays taxes to Arizona. QED.

There is no proof that is what happened. He started following Martin when the dispatcher asked "which way is he running" and started returning to his car when the dispatcher said they didn't need him to follow Martin. The state didn't have any evidence that Zimmerman intended to confront martin.

The burden of proof for a self-defense claim doesn't go as high as reasonable doubt, but you do have to demonstrate it pretty strongly. Essentially you have to provide reasonable doubt that what you did was a crime, while admitting that you did it.

Very scary verdict, seems like open season for shooting people for no reason at all. And getting away with it.

Pichu0102: Anyone who celebrates this should be shunned.
Anyone who threatens him should be prosecuted.
Anyone who thinks this means "open season on whatever minority I don't like" should be prosecuted.
Violent rioters should be prosecuted.


Furthermore, everyone should be depressed. A kid is dead, his family is scarred, and a man's life was thrown into chaos and will likely be haunted by this for the rest of his life.

No one wins no matter what happens. My main concern was that people would celebrate this trial's conclusion, despite what a horrible thing that is to celebrate, and I was proven right.


Uh...he brought that one on himself...

RockSteadyUSMC: The judicial system worked exactly how it's supposed to. There was enough reasonable doubt to acquit, and that was how it should be. The judicial system convicts based on facts and should prove beyond a reasonable doubt, not convict based on public opinion.

/USMC MP
//Yes I have a clue


You say that like all the facts are fed into a machine and it decides the fate of the defendant.  The JURY convicts based on their opinion of what are the facts.  In case you didn't know, lawyers bend the truth and *gasp* sometimes lie to win a case.  There much much much more to it than just presenting facts

Millennium: The burden of proof for a self-defense claim doesn't go as high as reasonable doubt, but you do have to demonstrate it pretty strongly. Essentially you have to provide reasonable doubt that what you did was not a crime, while admitting that you did it.

/At the very least, Nancy Grace is consistent.
//Consistently wrong.
///Seriously, her batting average resembles Rob Deer's at this point.

probably because no one actually believes that any of those people were innocent of the crimes they were charged with


...and yet, by the "rule of law", all either were acquitted or had their cases dropped, because the evidence just wasn't there.  Same as Zimmerman: the jurors acquitted him because the evidence just wasn't there.  I'm sorry, but you can't call Roethlisberger "Rapey Ben", then turn around and say that finally, the rule of law has been served with Zimmerman.

Following someone isn't illegal. Punching someone for following you is. Martin had no legal obligation to flee from Zimmerman (but he was only 100 yards from home and had 3 minutes to get there) but he did have a legal obligation not to beat Zimmerman for following him

We have no proof that Martin knew Zimmerman had a gun at that time. He was, after all, concealing it. The only point at which we can be sure Martin knew Zimmerman had a gun was when he was on top of him: the point when he'd have felt the gun through Zimmerman's clothes. According to Zimmerman's narrative, at least, that was the first (and, as it turned out, only) time Martin went for the gun.

Oh yeah, there was a 911 call where she could be clearly heard saying "I got something for you" and then a shot.

Then she insisted she had a SYG defense when she had a plea deal on the table and rolled the dice on a trial when the charges she was up against had a 20 year mandatory minimum.

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.


seemed to have worked out

Tomorrow, I shall go and randomly punch a liberal in the face as hard as I can.  They will not follow me.

skullkrusher: 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.

his girlfriend testified that he said that on the phone to her


Wow...i thought they only said "cracka" in 1970's Blaxploitation films.

Bit'O'Gristle: Let the riots, looting, burning and raping, and killing begin!! all the in name of JUSTICE. That will show them!!!

/not really, but I'm sure some will use this for personal gain cloaked in "we are mad because you set him free" bullshiat.


Justice = whatever verdict we wanted
No Justice = the verdict given was not the one we thought we should have gotten.

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.

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.

PUSSY RIOT

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?

I want me some new TVs, laptop, sound system, and other new stuff!

Is it too soon to loot?

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!

More tweets for the verdict than the Super Bowl.

Utter Genius: What do you mean I can't attack and hurt pale-skinned people without possible (in this case lethal) consequences?

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.

/what an inaccurate username you have.
