You were a witness?  Why didn't you testify?


I'm just recalling the UNCONTROVERTED evidence in the case.  Maybe you should have watched it?

BunkyBrewman: He was found not guilty by a jury of his peers.

/yes, it's that simple regardless of one's feelings on the case


What are you talking about?  There weren't even any black people on the jury.

/yes, I know one of them was black but I saw a guy on either CBS or ABC say that this morning
//Not sure if they just got someone completely ignorant of the case or if he was saying a real black person would never have gone along with voting "not guilty"

vartian: jehovahs witness protection: Race baiters hitting up race baiters to race bait.

You are a callous idiot every other day so I guess today is just par for the course.

That said, I won't sign it either - killing someone is a crime, but I don't see how constitutional rights factor in here. Zimmerman did murder Trayvon due to paranoia and a sense of entitlement, and he is certainly a racist, but that is not clear enough to take a second shot at him for murder charges. Sue the fark out of him in civil court to the point where his every waking moment is obsessed with the amount he has to pay, sure, but I don't see how we can justify an end run at double jeopardy.

We'll just have to be content that a miserable coward who stalked and shot a tenager will be unable to live the rest of his life normally. If we are lucky, he'll also be doing it broke.


Are you brainwashed, brain-damaged, willfully dishonest, or just good old-fashioned stupid?
 
2013-07-14 02:35:55 PM

doglover: Boojum2k: vartian: Sue the fark out of him in civil court

Very likely not, the self-defense laws in Florida not only prohibit civil cases against someone found not guilty by self-defense, they put all court costs, attorney fees, etc onto the filing party.

This Floors Me. Florida is one of the dumbest states, and yet they have awesome legislation like this on the books?

Imagine, for a minute, if more species of lawsuits worked this way. You sue someone. You have to pay for EVERYTHING up front out of pocket. This would absolutely kill industries like patent trolls. It would be cheap as free to fight them, because it would be on their dime. And no one would ever settle, because any money is more expensive than free.

And quite frankly, civil lawsuits should be trumped by criminal ones. If you press charges, you should forfeit the right to sue. If you sue, you forfeit the right to press charges. It would remove the double jeopardy loop hole we've got goin' on how.


This is exactly what the GOP and major industries want. Make it prohibitive for your average citizen to sue a corporation in any way. They're well on their way to taking the courts away from the populace. Congratulations, you failed to think you idea all the way through.

I'd love to see how long I'd be able to collect money and signatures if I had a site called NAAWP (white people).

Slightly off topic:  I find it hilarious that so many african americans who have absolutely NOTHING to do with this case are so emotional, and feel like it's their right to cry, plead, biatch, moan, complain, and/riot just because they didn't get what they want.

I didn't agree with the OJ simpson verdict, but I didn't cry on the porch of the courthouse, I didn't promise to start looting black owned businesses.

The overall picture I get from this case (and many past ones) is that black people: you are just as racist as the rest of the world. When you rally behind someone because of the color of their skin, without knowing diddly squat about the case itself... it makes you look like a bunch of ignorant assholes.

My only first hand experience of this is when I was younger we (family) witnessed an auto accident with the at fault driver being black. Other guy was white.   We stuck around and told the police what we ACTUALLY saw (first hand).    While waiting for the cops to show up, the black party had about 10 friends and or magically and very quickly show up, all crying/sobbing/and telling the cops what 'really' happened (even though they were miles from the accident when it happened)

If we want to really get on the ball with equal rights -- how about we eliminate the "united negro college fund" OR we make it socially acceptable for me to start up the "united whites only college fund".   Let's keep going -- how about we make it illegal to say the N word, or we make it socially acceptable for EVERYONE to say it (not just one group).

Ask for a few of those things and you will quickly see the people pushing the hardest actually don't give a crap about being equal at all.

They are disappointed that they can't act like victims of reverse racism since Zimmerman got off. Now all the wax they bought for their crosses will have to wait on the shelf.

Dimensio: sheep snorter: So according to the jury's moronic result of the case...... We can get out of our cars and stalk and then murder a black kid because he looked suspicious.

/Providing you are white enough, that is.
//Oh and state that when you confronted him, the kid tried to stand his ground to get your cracker ass from stalking him.
//But we all know that stand your ground is only for frightened paranoid loser white people to use.

Please reference the evidence indicating that Mr. Trayvon Martin experienced a reasonable fear of imminent death, grievous bodily injury, kidnapping or sexual assault prior to his attacking Mr. Zimmerman.Slaxl: Bigdogdaddy: He was found not guilty.  I didn't agree with it, but that's the way our system works.

But he killed him in self defence, so not guilty on those grounds makes perfect sense. Doesn't it? Or is it more that you would say that killing in self defence is still killing and thus he should have gone to jail anyway?
Being foreign I haven't paid close attention to this case, so please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems pretty clear he was being assaulted, and probably a few head bashes on the pavement away from death himself, and he shot the guy. Does it really matter that he called the police to report him looking suspicious? That doesn't make him a racist, if anything given Martin's reaction it makes him perceptive.

Now, if Zimmerman had harrassed Martin, to the point where he went over and instigated the fight which he ended up losing and having to use his gun then exhoneration would be clearly wrong, but that would have come out in court if it were the case. So it seems to me rather clear, and fair, that Zimmerman was cleared, and why. Am I missing key facts?

You are evidently unaware that prior to being attacked, Mr. Zimmerman shouted numerous racial epithets and openly waved his firearm in front of Mr. Martin. These events are well-documented, as they were witnessed in great detail in the imaginations ...


You have been in a coma haven't you. Either that or you are a troll. If that is the case, you get NO points.

Yet another outraged person who didn't follow the trial, only Facebook and Twitter....

So you're telling me he DIDN'T raise tons of cash for his defense fund?

PLEASE tell me you're saying that.


It is as if he's commenting on the portion he quoted. Hmm...

I just woke up...are America's urban neighborhoods flaming hulks of violent destruction yet?

...I was assured by many FARKers that the "race lords" and the Black Panthers were going to be lynching crackers all night...did I miss the action?


Well, Detroit is a flaming hulk of violent destruction, but we call it a feature. And it has nothing to do with any court case specifically.

Thanks to absurd public outrage, who demanded maximum punishment, GZ and Casey Anthony are free, both found not guilty in courtrooms about 30 miles apart.

I'm still not sure how at the 11th hour, after all evidence and testimony has been heard, the state can Ask the jury to consider Manslaughter when the entire defense strategy focused on the original charge of Murder 2.  They moved the goalposts and still lost.
 
2013-07-14 02:44:05 PM

Lionel Mandrake: Adolf Oliver Nipples: Is this how it's gonna be? Just keep throwing charges at him until something sticks?

Probably.  And the people who cheered Ronald Goldman's family for their persistence will shiat all over the Martin family.


Well.. I suppose the case might be similar if the contention is that OJ was using a knife to defend himself against Ron Goldman's neck. Mind you neck bites kan be pretti nasti.

The fact that he ran away? Does that work for you?

The acquittal doesn't change what happened.


Hey there MFAWG, remember that little bet on the outcome of the trial that we had?

Doesn't it suck to be so wrong about the outcome of the trial? Does it burn that someone who did their research knew the evidence of the trial better than you did? Have you learned a lesson about betting with better informed people?

Since I'm already sponsored for this month, you're gonna have to wait about 27 days to pay on that bet.

Don't worry, I'll be there to remind you.

Well, that and the fact that every inbred yahoo who hates Obama started passing around fake "thugged out" photos of Trayvon Martin the moment Obama said something about it.


This whole case pretty much immediately became an emotional narrative that two groups of people made up to fit what they felt the world was like. It didn't matter what the facts were, it didn't matter that Zimmerman was hispanic, or what kind of person he or Martin actually was, ZImmerman was plugged into the 'evil whitey' slot by some people, and Martin in the 'heroically oppressed african-american angel on his way to curing cancer' while others put Zimmerman in the 'heroic defender against darkies' slot, and Martin into the 'blah person ghetto thug threatening our neighborhoods'.

Few people cared what actually happened. Narratives were created out of different kinds of racism, and the two men became stand in characters. Some people wanted to see white people punished, some people wanted to see black people punished. If the races of Zimmerman and Martin were reversed, no one would be talking about this or giving a shiat.

It would take a lot less than that for me to become a monk.  Resisting the urge since it is not challenging enough spiritually to just leave everything behind.  It requires a lot more strength and spiritual devotion to just stay here and deal with the complicated crap of this society.

why did crump tell the media it was ice tea instead of watermelon juice??

because he knew that every hood rat out there would know what the watermelon juice and skittles were for.

it was 2 of the ingredients to make purple drank, all trayvon had to do was add DXM, (Dextromethorphan ) the drink is also called "lean" in some hoods.

purple drank has a PCP like effect on a person.

trayvon's twitter account talks about drinking it all the time.

this is also why the autopsy showed liver damage on trayvon at such young age.

apparently the skittles and watermelon juice were not so innocent after all
