JuggleGeek: Would setting fire to half of Sanford help?  Of course not.


Setting fire to all of Sanford would improve the place by 20 or 30 orders of magnitude

Cobblestone Flag: Taylor Mental: Jurors are now saying they knew Zimmerman was wrong and should have been punished but didn't have evidence to overcome reasonable doubt.

So this is basically another OJ or Casey Anthony bullshiat discussion that won't be resolved and the acolytes of the criminal won't shut up until the next Nancy Grace show.

People that are arguing for Zimmerman are leaning so so hard on the Not Guilty verdict. Most people on his side think that it's a complete vindication of his entire set of actions that night. It's kind of fascinating. I mean, I could see how you could make a sympathetic argument on his behalf from a very suburban mindset, but they don't even seem to consider the fact that this was something that could have easily been avoided and could possibly be tragic for both parties (for one party much more than the other, obviously).


Of course they are, they don't pay attention to anything but their favorite right wing news source. Nothing else exists in their minds but thugs in hoodies.

when a jury of your peers has no evidence to convict you, it means you are not a criminal.


So wrong. Zimmerman was already adjudicated a criminal. He just manipulated the system to get off and get a CCW permit. He assaulted a law enforcement officer. That's a felony.

cameroncrazy1984: Amos Quito: ThrobblefootSpectre: ferg4096: Why would they riot in LA over this?

Because the pulp media en masse and a lot of concern trolls have spent the past year convincing them that an epic injustice was taking place that means they are persecuted and oppressed in some vague indirect way that not one of them could verbalize.


That's a TERRIBLE thing to say!

Just because neither you, they, nor anyone else could possibly UNDERSTAND it does NOT mean that they can't verbalize it.

You guys are great at telling people you've never met how they feel and what they understand. I'm sure they appreciate being dictated to by douchebags.

Cobblestone Flag: The way that Stand Your Ground works in Florida is a wickedly screwed up thing that has lead to a number of strange court cases in recent years.


You do know this case wasn't all that strange(ie criminals getting off free) right?  Guy was getting his head beat into the sidewalk.

Cobblestone Flag: the fact that this was something that could have easily been avoided


Stop.  Yes, stop right there.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hindsight_bias#Judicial_system
Hindsight bias, also known as the knew-it-all-along effect or creeping determinism, is the inclination to see events that have already occurred as being more predictable than they were before they took place.
...
Hindsight bias results in being held to a higher standard in court. The defense is particularly susceptible to these effects since their actions are the ones being scrutinized by the jury. Due to the hindsight bias, defendants will be judged as being capable of preventing the bad outcome.[37] Though much stronger for the defendants, hindsight bias also affects the plaintiffs. In cases where there is an assumption of risk, hindsight bias may contribute to the jurors perceiving the event as riskier due to the poor outcome. This may lead the jury to feel that the plaintiff should have exercised greater caution in the situation. Both of these effects can be minimized if attorneys put the jury in a position of foresight rather than hindsight through the use of language and timelines. Encouraging people to explicitly think about the counterfactuals was an effective means of reducing the hindsight bias.[38] In other words, people became less attached to the actual outcome and were more open to consider alternative lines of reasoning prior to the event. Judges involved in fraudulent transfer litigation cases were subject to the hindsight bias as well, resulting in an unfair advantage for the plaintiff.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historian's_fallacy
The historian's fallacy is an informal fallacy that occurs when one assumes that decision makers of the past viewed events from the same perspective and having the same information as those subsequently analyzing the decision.

These things, in this case, work in the favor of the prosecution, and against the defense.  And it is why the laws are written as they are, to attempt to remove cognitive bias, and to allow self defense, rendering that not guilty verdict you think people lean on too much.

Maybe THIS will calm the race-baited ruckus raisers?

George Zimmerman Could Face Civil Suits, Death Threats, Federal Prosecution

(And not necessarily in that order)

Do you idiots GET IT YET?

This case is NOT about George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin or what happened on that rainy Florida evening. It never has been.

It's about stirring up the sludge on the bottom of the septic tank.

It's about political sleazeballs playing WE THE PEOPLE for suckers.

If Blackie is bizzy hatin' Whitie, and Whitie is bizzy hatin' Blackie, and nobody bothered to define where the Hispanics fit in, the political sleazeballs are free to FARK US OVER, and we won't even notice.

There's a slight bit of tippy-toeing around with the Sheriff's Department I'd need to deal with before getting specifically a handgun permit. They don't just hand out those particular ones like Crackerjack prizes despite this being a very red county.

A long gun would be easier as far as permits go, but I haven't been in the market for one yet.

Taylor Mental: Jurors are now saying they knew Zimmerman was wrong and should have been punished but didn't have evidence to overcome reasonable doubt.


Where'd you make that up from?  Most everyone is upset that a teenager died.  Even in Chicago they get upset when black unarned teens are killed.  It makes people angry and it should.  But the single juror you are talking about said the evidence and law was on Zimmerman's side, not that he was wrong and should be punished.  The juror said they believed it was Zimmerman screaming for help and Trayvon punched first and then followed up with more strikes.  It's straight up self-defense.  Nobody did anything wrong or illegal until Trayvon threw that first punch.   A single punch would have been a misdemeanor.  He followed that up with more strikes while on top of Zimmerman (again, this is what the jurors believed and was proven in court).  So now, with all that going on (broke nose, blood running down throat so it's hard to breathe  and in eyes so it's hard to see) and 5'11", 160 lb man experienced in fighting is banging Zimmerman's head on the concrete, did zimmerman reasonably fear for his life or that he might be seriously injured?  The juror says that the law and the facts said 'yes'.  It was not illegal for zimmerman to follow Trayvon and call police.  It was not illegal for Trayvon to be out walking the neighborhood.  It was not illegal for zimmerman to get out of the car.  The crime began with Trayvon's punch.  Zimmerman would not be justified in shooting him over a single punch.  Trayvon's follow-up though, made it reasonable to fear for zimmermans life.  Zimmerman did not land a single blow to Trayvon and the beating ended only when Trayvon was shot.  The beating lasted 40 seconds.  That's what the jury saw and heard and believed.  There's a ton of "if only's" on both sides but that didn't happen so the jury made their decision on the evidence and the law.

Hey you're talking to the liberal gunsmith, my stance on guns has walked pretty far to the left since I've been on fark ;)

I'd totally help you out with a shotgun, let me know if you're ever in the market. Better for home defense too, I can get a hold of slugs used by the marines specifically designed to not overpenetrate (still pissed you can't get them on the market, you'd think a safety slug that effective wouldn't at least be available for LEOs too).

Ok, fine.

But they were on CNN and Fox trying to make it seem as if Zimmerman was educated about self defense.

I get to point to the fact that Zimmerman, who wanted to be a cop, and had a gun on him, had a TEENAGER on top of him in a FULL MOUNT. Fine, Zimmerman isn't guilty. But I swear to god if he gets anywhere near the gun rags and people try to tout him as a self defense zion, I'm going to start contemplating punching people. He is to self defense discussion what a guy who gets bucked off a toy pony is to a discussion about rodeos.

Fine, people, he's innocent. But he failed so god damned hard he should be shunned, laughed at, and called stupid for EVER trying to enter a self defense discussion.

Where'd you make that up from?  Most everyone is upset that a teenager died.  Even in Chicago they get upset when black unarned teens are killed.  It makes people angry and it should.  But the single juror you are talking about said the evidence and law was on Zimmerman's side, not that he was wrong and should be punished.  The juror said they believed it was Zimmerman screaming for help and Trayvon punched first and then followed up with more strikes.  It's straight up self-defense.  Nobody did anything wrong or illegal until Trayvon threw that first punch.   A single punch would have been a misdemeanor.  He followed that up with more strikes while on top of Zimmerman (again, this is what the jurors believed and was proven in court).  So now, with all that going on (broke nose, blood running down throat so it's hard to breathe  and in eyes so it's hard to see) and 5'11", 160 lb man experienced in fighting is banging Zimmerman's head on the concrete, did zimmerman reasonably fear for his life or that he might be seriously injured?  The juror says that the law and the facts said 'yes'.  It was not illegal for zimmerman to follow Trayvon and call police.  It was not illegal for Trayvon to be out walking the neighborhood.  It was not illegal for zimmerman to get out of the car.  The crime began with Trayvon's punch.  Zimmerman would not be justified in shooting him over a single punch.  Trayvon's follow-up though, made it reasonable to fear for zimmermans life.  Zimmerman did not land a single blow to Trayvon and the beating ended only when Trayvon was shot.  The beating lasted 40 seconds.  That's what the jury saw and heard and believed.  There's a ton of "if only's" on both sides but that didn't happen so the jury made their decision on the evidence and the law.

Ok, fine.

But they were on CNN ...


Haha if I'm already in arms reach, that gun isn't going to do them any good.

There's a reason I'm trained to keep my gun in the farking holster during a fist fight. I know how easy it is to get handguns away from people.

HANDGUN. As in your hands. Specifically, in yours, out of reach of theirs. Pulling a handgun when an attacker is inside of 20 feet of you is about as stupid as it gets, it belongs in the holster because if your attacker is already inside 20 feet it just became the biggest threat to your life.

phrawgh: iq_in_binary: phrawgh: iq_in_binary: phrawgh: Oldiron_79: lewismarktwo: A couple things that really surprised me during this whole debacle:

1) Trayvon wasn't actually from that neighborhood.

2) It wasn't iced tea, it was watermelon soda.

Im like the world's whitest white guy and I like Arizona Watermelon, wheres your stereotype now?

Next you're going to tell us you like fried chicken?

/I doubt the existence of Arizona watermelon

Umm dude you've never seen Arizona Watermelon? It's not a soda by the way it's a tea. Made by a company called Arizona. Even up here in a rather liberal state like MN you can see them in practically every gas station.

I meant Arizona Watermelons. As in a field of watermelons growing in the Arizona sun.

Buddy of mine was a recon sniper in the marines. Used to shoot varmints in that field.

You knew John Denver?


John Denver was a recon sniper?

K, now I won't give people shiat for listening to his music.

...the actual guilty party is unpictured.  We call them the LAPD.

That's really the crux of the whole thing.  Who started the confrontation.  If Zimmerman initiated the fight then he'd have no self defense privilege (aggressors can't claim it).  If Trayvon began the fight then Zimmerman would, if he reasonably felt his life was in danger, have the privilege to use deadly force.  From what I could follow the evidence was inconclusive on who started the fight due in no small part to how police handled the initial scene and Zimmerman's person and possessions while in custody.

Even so, the fact remains that Zimmerman did initiate contact with Trayvon and did behave in a manner that would appear threatening to a youth walking alone at night in an unfamiliar area.  It was completely avoidable and Zimmerman should bear some responsibility for precipitating the events that led to his killing of an unarmed teen.

O ...


From outside 20 feet if they knew what the hell they were doing.

But I didn't carry a gun because I was scared of everything, it was a necessary part of the job. I could see why most CCW holders would want to shoot me, I'm scary looking and they're apparently scared of everything already.

The Trayvon/Zimmerman case is about as cathartic as it gets.

Trying to convince him that scary behavior is provoking a fight when he's fighting tooth and nail to establish that killing someone is justified when you're scared is kind of surreal, isn't it? No scratch that, it's infuriating.
