Sofa_king_kewl: This is why I love Fark so much, it's a site inion dated with arm chair lawyers, self righteous liberals and a bunch of just plan old assholes. He was found not guilty, I hope he still carries his weapon, he may need it.
Twitch Boy: I'm more worried about the jury.
Theory Of Null: I have a feeling he will move to a small town, grow a mustache and change his name to Burt Grummer

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.
FloydA: What was Martin convicted of?

tenpoundsofcheese: Befuddled: Why do so many quote Zimmerman's BS account of what happened as if it were proven fact? His account is totally unbelievable. Zimmerman was incredibly lucky that there were no other witnesses to his crime so he could make up a story that would vindicate him and that the investigators to his crime were incompetent.Ok, I'll bite.What do you think happened.Keep in mind what happened the other 46 times he called 911, his 1/10 rating from the MMA instructor, his history of working across racial lines to help people (the black homeless person, the tutoring), the bruises he had and the lack of any on Martin.Throw in his reenactment for the police (he didn't lawyer up) and the consistency of all the prosecution witnesses.Go ahead, tell me what happened and be specific.

ferretman: 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.
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?

safetycap: Molavian: iq_in_binary: Dude, TEENAGER. FULL MOUNT. Yeah, you're pathetic.Sure, he's not guilty, but he's not a man either.Next thing you'll be talking about penis size.Well, is it an innie or an outie?[i651.photobucket.com image 400x300]
Popcorn Johnny: The Great EZE: That's just the way it is, has been since the founding of America. Are you denying that the lives of black men aren't traditionally held at a lower perceived value relative to other people in the country?What's the way it is? This incident made it's way through the legal system and the jury made a decision. Either you can point out racial bias along the way, or you have to be accusing the jury of making a ruling based on race.

The derp is out in full force today :(Unfortunately, for the most part, no way to tell who's trolling and who actually believes this nonsenseBah......you have to be here at 2:00 AM when things get really unhinged.I'm really bummed I missed the reading of the verdict and the in-the-moment excitement. I listened to almost every second of the trial, and participated in all the threads, and the damn jury came back while I was go-karting :(Has anyone seen DroX?Hopefully he didn't "smh" too hard....that could cause (more) brain damage

Treygreen13: Dimensio: jaytkay: Carth: I've never seen a law that says you can hit someone for being afraid of themThe Florida self defense statute states, "A person is presumed to have held a reasonable fear of imminent peril of death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another...Fear. That's the standard. You can attack someone if you are afraid they will harm you.LinkI do not understand how hou have failed to comprehend the law that you have quoted directly. Based upon the wording of the law, an unreasonable fear is not legal justification for the use of deadly force.Dimensio, you have the patience of Buddha. How do you remain so diplomatic?
FriarReb98: Funny, but this headline is pretty much exactly what I said in the main thread. He basically has to pay his way into a rich, gated, well-secured community and hide in there. He can't just move to an all-white neighborhood because he'd be labeled Hispanic immediately. He can never enjoy vacations, he can never get lost in the wrong neighborhood, he can never walk to get anything because he'll see shadows following him. He'll eventually lose sleep over it, obsessing over the idea that everyone's out to get him, and end up dying miserable. Which, I'm sure, will please most everyone who wanted him to get executed for what he did.\me? Kinda surprised he survived the early hiccups in his case to get out of it.\\I'll never bother finding out if I need to believe one way or the other because I really don't care about him\\\just a dumbass racist who lucked out & did this in the craziest state in the country
parasol: seadoo: So, can I beat the K-Mart guy and claim "self-defense" like the Trayvon people are saying?If you could get him off camera and somehow prove that he was somehow a threat to your life.. then sure.Ah, so essentially everything the Trayvon people cannot do?I'm not entirely sure who you mean by "Trayvon people" (it sounds a bit like "these assholes" imo) but, as the trial is over, isn't it about time to stop being so transparently divisive about this?
rewind2846: Mr. Breeze: What makes you think GZ had the intent to be an executioner, as opposed to committing an act of self defense?When you carry a gun, you should realize that you can instantly take someone's life with it. If you're not prepared for that kind of responsibility, you shouldn't carry.When he went to confront Martin, he had his gun with him. The possibility that he may have to use it should have been foremost in his mind, as well as the consequences of that use. If he wasn't thinking about this the gun should have stayed in the truck.As my gun instructor taught me back in my navy days - "don't point unless you're willing to shoot, and don't shoot unless you're willing to kill".
quatchi: Trayvon Martin and George Martin both acted like asshats that night.
hardinparamedic: TheHappyCanadian: Trayvon fellators upon hearing verdict:Someone was exercising their first amendment right to free expression by burning a flag.Oh dear. Next they'll be smoking pot!
TheHappyCanadian: Trayvon fellators upon hearing verdict:
phenn: Iowan73: phenn: Iowan73: There is no evidence of who started the fight. But the only reason those two ever met was because Zimmerman made it happen.So? Was that illegal?No. I don't think he should have been convicted of murder. But he is at least partially responsible for getting himself into a an easily avoidable situation and then having to shoot his way out. If he had minded his own business or left it to the police, none of this would have happened.We can certainly agree on that. He acted stupidly. Totally agree. Doesn't rise to second degree murder, but definitely eaten alive by dumbass.
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]
Xetal: 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.
rewind2846: Elegy:So because you decide to carry a gun on your person and follow all acceptable laws in doing so, you should forfeit all rights to leave your home, forever.The point, you missed it. This isn't about "guns" genius, it's about someone who wanted to be a cop so badly that he chose to run around in the middle of the night like the motherfarking Batman.You want to make it about guns, go right ahead, all you gun nuts do. That's your fetish, not mine. This wasn't the case here... it was about some pussy ass who chose to do what he had no business doing, what he had been advised not to do by the police dispatcher, even if he had been armed with only a paper clip and a rubber band. Even if you have a gun a responsible gun owner DOES NOT INSTIGATE OR CONFRONT, because any gun owner with two working brain cells realizes the deadly potential of the object they are carrying.If you are a pussy ass you do not instigate contact or confront people. You wait your ass in the truck until the police you just called show up.
seadoo2006: Representative of the unwashed masses: true that may be but the spate of pictures intending to paint the kid as a lowlife is spitting in his families face. that's what I find disgusting. Zimmerman may not have broken the law but he made the first of many bad decisions that led to Matrin's death.Except for, you know, the pictures of the kid from 5 years prior that were digitally lightened to make him seem 'less frightening' when the reality was this kid was up to no good and was actively beating a guy into the ground for the mere fact that he was - LEGALLY - following him.Guess what? Our community does the same thing. We have police in unmarked Malibus that patrol our streets for this very reason ...
This About That: I hear he has made quite a tidy profit, with at least one book deal to come. On the other hand, the civil suits haven't even started yet.
Alonjar: Quantum Apostrophe: I don't trust a 29 year old who looks 45 and thinks he's the neighborhood rentacop.I heard he illegally smuggles 3d printers. Definitely an unsavory character.
Popcorn Johnny: Zim has a CCW and knows how to use a weapon. I hope somebody goes after him and he busts a few more caps in self defense.
SevenizGud: 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.
Mr. Breeze: rewind2846:Should have thought about that before he decided to play judge, jury and executioner.I didn't know executioners did their job lying on their backs while getting beaten by the convict.
rewind2846: ferretman: Wow...the stupid is out on a Sunday.Yeah, and an assload of it just showed up.Tell me, would any of this had happened had Zimmerman simply stayed in his truck and waited for the police, whom he had called and were on their way?We have neighborhood watch where I live, and that is what they do. They carry no weapons. They have a flashlight and a cellphone. They are simply living smart cameras that watch what goes on in the neighborhood, hence the name "neighborhood watch". They do not confront, they do not question, and most of all, they do not attempt to apprehend. They observe and report, that is all.Would it have been that difficult for this two time police department reject and robocop wannabe to do just that? Wait in the truck for the cops? That's where the stupid is, and your choice to defend this waste of human skin says much about you.
ferretman: Wow...the stupid is out on a Sunday.
Oldiron_79: Ambivalence: Well, he should definitely consider moving away from Florida.THIS
