FTA: "He's going to be looking over his shoulder the rest of his life," Robert Zimmerman Jr. said during an interview on CNN.

Should have thought about that before he decided to play judge, jury and executioner.

Twitch Boy: I'm more worried about the jury.

Yeah, their names are sealed, but we're in 2013 here.  All it takes is one J4T script kiddie or a guy who knows a guy who knows a coworker who noticed "say, I haven't seen Alice in three weeks, she's been awful mum about what she was doing, but I think she mentioned jury duty, and come to think of it one of the jurors was a 32-year-old mother of two..."


I haven't seen much anger directed at the jurists.
Besides that, they're also women. Most people have qualms about killing women.

Just like Casey Anthony people will forget all about him in 6 months.
 
2013-07-14 04:24:25 PM  
How is the headline ironic? When did Zimmerman try taking the law into his own hands? Is subby implying that only a member of law enforcement can stop one person from attacking another and that there's no place in our society for self defense?

Or maybe Drew is just allowing inflammatory shiat to be posted because it generates page views.

I dont know about killing georgie boy. But I think he is due another savage beating.

sheep snorter: Florida jurys are so lame when the main evidence was Zimmerman leaving his vehicle when told not too(automatically invalidates any 'stand your ground' law for Zimmerman and gives 'stand your ground' to the kid.
Zimmerman at least should of gotten a year in prison or house arrest for that due to the resulting murder of the kid.
[i.imgur.com image 388x356]


Yeah, because the dispatcher told him not to follow, therefore Zimmerman never has any right to stand his ground...even if Martin assaults him in the Arby's parking lot a month later. Because he's waived his right to stand his ground against Martin, amirite?

But hey, I am sure you know more about the law than the judge.

Oh_Enough_Already: So now that this trial is over, will most Farkers go back to not giving a shiat about the dozens of black teens killed every day in America?


Go back to? I never stopped not caring.

Farkers,

In what world is it ok to take it upon yourself to see a black kid walking down the street in your HOA neighborhood, go arm yourself with a gun...get a couple of flashlights and go stalk a kid drinking Arizona tea and eating Skittles while walking while black? Zimmerman is a wanna be cop HOA Nazi who stalked and instigated a confrontation and got his ass beat. Zimmerman deserved it. The kid had no deadly weapon and paid with his life.

Tell me how this is justice Zimmerman walks?


Because a jury of his peers decided that it was.  End of story.

Wow...the stupid is out on a Sunday. The inability for some of you to actually review the evidence is astounding. Hopefully if you ever have someone beating the shiat out of you and smashing your head into the sidewalk you won't bother protecting your life if you have the ability.

It is amazing that someone is so lame that they don't realize yet that "Stand Your Ground" was not invoked in this case. The Zimmerman case is a straight-forward self-defense case.

"I'd like to see the same people who believe O.J. "obviously" did it come here to explain to us all how Zimmerman can't possibly be a murderer because he was found not guilty."

So, are you saying that O.J. was part of the neighborhood watch and Nicole and Ronald Goldman lacerated his head?

I was wondering this as well. What do you think the odds are that Zimmerman is found shot to death. He should be very careful where he goes and with who, I'm sure there are plenty of people looking for vigilante justice.

He is white. He's a white Latino. Latino is an ethnicity, not a race.

Latinos can be white, black, Asian, etc.

easy, the kid was carrying only skittles and iced tea, he was doing nothing illegal when Zimmerman decided to follow him resulting in the altercation.  he was no alter boy but he didn't deserve to die.

I'd like to see the same people who believe O.J. "obviously" did it come here to explain to us all how Zimmerman can't possibly be a murderer because he was found not guilty.


Zimmerman was charged with murder.  Here's how murder was explained to me when I became a security guard (by a former cop who was my trainer):

If you are working on a construction site on some scaffolding and you sit you tool box down on the scaffolding, it breaks and the tool box falls and kills someone, that's negligence.

If you are on the scaffolding, you are told not to sit your tool box onto the scaffolding because the wood can not support the heavy tool box, and you do it anyways, and the tool box kills someone, that's manslaughter.

If you climb that scaffolding with a rifle and start killing people, that's murder.

Zimmerman didn't intend to end that kid's life.  So that rules out murder.  Had the state gone for manslaughter, it would have been different, and odds are he would have been convicted.

Following someone isn't illegal in FL. There is no way to tell who started the physical altercation but the jury decided there wasn't enough evidence to say it was Zimmerman beyond a reasonable doubt.

TuteTibiImperes: FTA: "He's going to be looking over his shoulder the rest of his life," Robert Zimmerman Jr. said during an interview on CNN.

I wonder how he'll react the first time a black guy starts following him around his neighborhood at night.



If that happens, think Zimmerman should:


1) GET ANGRY - OUTRAGED at the idea that ANY "creepy-ass cracker hunter" might be looking at him "funny"
2) RUN (so as not to look suspicious)
3) HIDE (so he can see what that "creepy-ass cracker hunter" is up to
4) JUMP OUT AND CONFRONT the "creepy-ass cracker hunter"
5) PUNCH the "creepy-ass cracker hunter" in the nose, knocking him down
6) POUNCE on top of the "creepy-ass cracker hunter" banging his head on concrete, if possible
7) PUMMEL the "creepy-ass cracker hunter" mercilessly, as the "creepy-ass cracker hunter" cries for help
8) SMOTHER the "creepy-ass cracker hunter" to try to keep him from screaming
9) IGNORE concerned neighbors when they tell him to stop, and that they're calling police, AND
10) DIE when the "creepy-ass cracker hunter" pulls a concealed weapon and blasts Zimmerman in the chest

Because that's what harmless, innocent people (like Trayvon) do when they see someone eying them with suspicion, right?

RIGHT?

I wonder what would happen if he made the mistake of walking at night, and someone else took a gun, called the cops, followed him against police instruction, picked a fight, got their ass kicked, and shot him.

Not that it would happen - Zimmerman, despite his self-perception, could never kick anyone's ass.

Are you a hoodie wearing black man that decides to take vigilante justice by beating someone who is following you instead of calling the cops?

That sums it up.  My impression is that they both made poor choices that night.  Martin's luck turned out worse than Zimmerman's.
