Aarontology: I'll bet Fox News and CNN and MSNBC and just about every other TV and print media is devastated they didn't get the race riots they wanted.


Fixed that for accuracy.

The real people at fault here are Trayvon's parents. Your kid is suspended from school and your reaction is to let him go out and wander around the neighborhood at night? You didn't care enough to discipline him or make sure he was at school when he was alive but now that he's dead you see a big settlement in your future. Nice.

God Is My Co-Pirate: dittybopper: I'm very happy that my worst fears about the potential for violence have so far proven to be wrong.

Despite the media's best efforts.


Yeah right wing media was really pushing hard for it.

What if Trayvon were white?
What if Zimmerman were a black Hispanic?


If Martin were Hispanic and Zimmerman black the case would never have gone to trial because there wouldn't have been mass protests and the President would talk about how the victim would look like his son if he had one.

I bet you and your friends are devastated no one gives a shiat about trayvon aside from "liking" something on facebook
 
2013-07-15 10:25:02 AM

soupafi: If Martin went home, locked his door and called 911 this wouldn't of happened


but I thought Florida said the correct response to being threatened was not to retreat but to "stand your ground"? Or is that only for Middle-aged white guys?

Don't tell Drudge. He's still pretending riots happened.

2013-07-15 10:25:10 AM
Folks in my office were in an uproar for a solid 2 minutes this morning over the verdict. Now, nothing. Some think that the peaceful protests will turn to riots, tho. But I think enough people actually watched the trial to realize there's nothing to be butthurt about.

It's not just Fox.  All of them want it to happen because of the ratings will be fantastic.  I just want them so there can be more assholes killing assholes.

I've got good news and bad news.

Good News: George Zimmerman is no longer Florida's problem. In fact, he's your brand new next door neighbor.

Bad News: He doesn't like your pets.  And is reading up on the defenses to Cruelty to an Animal.

If I heard correctly, in Florida if an acquittal happens, you can't sue in civil court

Totally. Letting him go to a corner store was basically like murdering him themselves.

I would hope for the same verdict.

/isn't zimmerman at least partly a black hispanic since his mom is 1/8th black?

Wut?
Fox News was not the one playing up the race angle from day one.
They were fair and balanced in their news coverage vs. some other networks who, no matter what was happening in the trial, were saying the prosecution did a great job.

You might want to check  if you have Fox Derangement Syndrome....but...but...but....FOX NEWS!

You've met them, then? I haven't. Really wanted to. But didn't get the chance. It must've been really nice to sit down with them, talk to them about the issue and get some insight into what they were thinking. And I'm glad you did that, because I certainly would never have been able to make a statement like the one you made without having some actual first hand evidence of what was going on before jumping to rash f*cking decisions toward something about which I know f*ck all.

You sir, are clown shoes.
 
2013-07-15 10:26:09 AM
Always fun to try people based on media reporting.  Certainly none of those outlets are biased or filter information before presenting.  Only a small number of people were privy to all the court proceedings and have access to all the information that was presented and/or omitted.  But by all means don't let that stop you from continuing to emphatically voice your partially informed thoughts on the matter.
 
2013-07-15 10:26:16 AM
That's because they timed the verdict beautifully on a Saturday night.
Most of those who would be rioting were already getting hammered.
 
2013-07-15 10:26:20 AM
There were so many farkers looking forward to riots too, that must be very disappointing for them.

Dusk-You-n-Me: Don't tell Drudge. He's still pretending riots happened.


They seem to have been very scattered and minor incidents.  And that is a good thing.
 
2013-07-15 10:26:30 AM
From comments in previous threads, I know a lot of Farkers are disappointed that there was no rioting. I think the unrest that came after the Rodney King verdict was in part because of the shock that the officers would walk. Nothing about the verdict in the Trayvon Martin case was shocking.
 
2013-07-15 10:27:12 AM

vernonFL: I would still like to know how and why Florida has juries of only 6 people.


because only 9 showed up for jury duty and they needed 3 alternates.

Magorn: The Muthaship: FTA-   "In what universe does it make any sense, could it be considered legal, to stalk, confront, and murder a completely innocent teenager?" Stark asked a vocal, yet peaceful crowd.

I don't know, Mr. Stark.  What universe did that happen in?

this one.  Trayvon Martin is dead.   Trayvon Martin was legally and innocently walking from a store to his home and sitting on top of Zimmerman, punching him and slamming his head into the pavement according to witnesses AND forensic evidencewhen he was killed.  But for George Zimmerman's actions on that night Martin would still be alive.  Fact are facts.  The Not Guilty verdict was the correct one based on the very poor job the prosecution did at trial.  But you are delusional if you think Zimmerman is in any way innocent of the murder of Martin

You can but if during the pre trial hearings it is determined to be a case of self defense the defendant is immune from prosecution and gets his legal fees covered.

Not only that, but apparently you can also collect lawyer's fees from someone who does try to sue you.
Heard that on the news yesterday from some legal guy.

Typical lazy blacks can't even riot correctly.  They're too busy drinking their drugs and driving to the welfare store to pick up their 50 checks for their pink Cadillac.  They are the REAL racists.

Why won't the media report that I'm the victim here?

As delusional as you are if you think Trayvon was a sweet innocent kid who did no wrong.

Yes Zimmerman should have kept his busybody ass in the car so no one had to die but Trayvon escalated the situation to violence that gave Zimmerman the legal right to respond with lethal force.

You have bought the media idea that the prosecution bungled the job however the fact is they were trying to make Chicken Salad out of chicken shiat.

Trayvon Martin was killed, but he was not murdered.

Indeed. But Drudge won't let that fact stop him from his ALL CAPS RACE WAR quest.

Look, just because there wasn't enough evidence to convict Zimmerman doesn't make his account correct.

Black people were set to riot, but Painlessrisen gave 'em what for.

It doesn't matter anyway ... here's a fun fact: Soopermexican reports 11,106 black people have been murdered by other black people since Martin's death.

Al Sharpton is having a one man riot? He'd never be able to do it if it weren't for the weight loss.

No, a good thing is NO riots because people are civil.

That's the thing that really drives me crazy.  We have children and teenagers (mostly black) getting shot and dying on the streets of Chicago on a nightly basis, yet one unfortunate event in Florida gets everyone's panties in a bunch?

What gives?

You need to put your emotions aside and look at the physical evidence.  If TM had not assaulted GZ, TM would be alive.

And if GZ hadn't assumed that a black kid walking down the street was a criminal, and hadn't been itching to play the hero in his own head, nothing would have happened.


Perhaps they were both guilty of a crime. Unfortunately Zimmerman's the only one alive to prosecute for his.

Oddly I don't see a lot of stories out of Chicago where the killer said "It was self defense!" and the police go "Self defense you say?  Guess there's nothing more to do.  Cut'im loose Joe."
