heili skrimsli: Dimensio: rzrwiresunrise: The thing that went wrong with the Zimmerman case: waiting 44 days to arrest him for homicide. And all because of FL's brand new SYG law.

Let it go & work on fixing that law.

Are you ignoring the fact that Mr. Zimmerman did not rely upon "Stand Your Ground" in his defense, or are you dishonestly ignoring facts that do not conform to your preferred narrative?

Never let the facts get in the way of a good outrage.


I take it you have recovered from Omaras smack down of the media last night

Thrag: There were much larger peaceful protests going on at the same time, but Oakland has a strong asshole contingent that just wants any excuse to break shiat up.


Most of the people arrested for destruction of property in Oakland protests are from surrounding cities.

Thrag: OhioUGrad: Thrag: OhioUGrad: At least 3 separate marches in California, in Oakland destruction of property including a police car, over 100 arrested...not exactly the peaceful protests that they claimed were going on, and not the massive riots people claimed would happen...also the reports in Florida were that there were "mostly" no problems.

That's what we call a typical Tuesday in Oakland ;)

There were much larger peaceful protests going on at the same time, but Oakland has a strong asshole contingent that just wants any excuse to break shiat up.

Surprised you didn't just put southern California

/never been
//don't want to go

Why would I put southern California. You know Oakland is northern California, right? It's across the bay from San Francisco.


Because Oakland is just a pocket, but (at least in most posts I read regarding Cali) most people complain that pretty much all of southern Cali from like Bakersfield down is a hell hole.

UnspokenVoice: HotWingConspiracy: LtDarkstar: Funny how it's acceptable for black people to go running to the NAACP over this verdict, but when OJ was found innocent they were celebrating and laughing in white people's faces and us white folks did not have an organization like NAACP to go running to mommy like these asshats are. Suck it up like the white people had to do for OJ. Black people always go running to someone and crying racism at the drop of the hat when they don't get their way. And then people wonder why I don't like black people.

It's not really a mystery. You racists aren't terribly clever.

Meh... I just hit the ignore button. I agree with the verdict but, well, I'm also half black. I wonder if that makes me racist?


Yep. You're racist. Did you not get the memo?
 
2013-07-14 05:43:19 PM
Sure is a lot of hate on "white people" in here. Good thing it's not racist if it's against "white people."

Popcorn Johnny: HotWingConspiracy: Unless you're telling me that Zimmerman took some joy in the act.

joy - the emotion evoked by well-being, success, or good fortune or by the prospect of possessing what one desires

Zim was successful in stopping Trayvon's assault
Zim had good fortune that he was able to stop Trayvon's assault
Zim certainly desired to stop Trayvon's assault

I guess you could say he took some joy.


You right there in your own post defeated your own argument. He took joy in "stopping Trayvon's assault." not killing someone.

vartian: 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.

Reading that now. Lord, Florida is a farked-up state.


On the contrary. Immunity from liability for justifiable use of deadly force is something that should be in every state. And Castle Doctrine should be adjudicated as clearly implicit in the Second Amendment.

johnnyrocket: I am shocked that people think if you get in a fight, you have the right to kill someone with a gun. That is the most absurd concept I have ever heard. This seems to be the crux of the divide.


His head was being bashed into the concrete as he was yelling ofr help. That is different than your plain old fist fight or something. If you do that you could very well kill someone.

Don't worry about the strident anti-verdict opinions being voiced in this thread.  Now that the event is over, the Obamatons are getting back on message, doing political damage control in reference to the not guilty verdict, and beginning the dust-up process for the 2014 elections.  Business as usual.  Zimmerman and Martin now no longer have anything to do with what's being laid out as "the outrages" of the "hang Zimmerman" crowd, even though their names may be part of the discussion.  It's now just all about political power, and the attempt to gain more and more of same.  Can't blame 'em, really.  Both side do it to their shame, constantly.

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


That and also a trial isn't about justice for the victim. Sorry but it ain't.

Zimmerman was found not guilty. Instead of wasting another second on him everyone signing this petition should get off their collective arse and actually work for policy changes/other things to make the world a safer place. Most of the people signing this petition are going to then dust off their hands and feel good about themselves until Honey Boo Boo or the Kardashians dangle a shiny object and their attention is re-captured.

So if someone attacks you, and you don't have the skills or the opportunity to fight back, your option is to get the shiat beat out of you or die?  That is the crux of your argument.  Wow, this is what passes for being a Fark Intellectual.

You know, accept for the actual proof the TM was a violent thug.  He wouldn't have been at his father's place (a Crip) if he hadn't been suspended for fighting.  His Twitter feed bragged about attacks he made on others, including a bus driver.  He had video of fight he chose to stand and watch and laugh about with his friends.  He had stolen merchandise in possession.

Please provide any proof that Zimmerman was a racist.  One "N-word".  One harsh look.

What are people trying to accomplish by biatching about the Zimmerman verdict? Identify that and pursue it in some meaningful way that could actually change things. Zimmerman was tried in court and acquitted; protesting and whatever else is pointless since a trial is not about justice for the victim.

For the record I'm not at all a fan of Zimmerman and I think he is a dangerous person, but that is neither here nor there.

That is suppposed to be the demarcation between racism and prejudice/bigotry.

I think its always been an excuse for people failing to deal with individuals on an individual level. Racism just makes people feel good about themselves for something noone has any control over.

This. If the prevailing definition of racism doesn't apply to all people who practice it, then the term is worthless and should be discarded. As it stands, it's just the old "it's not wrong when we do it" ploy.
