HotWingConspiracy: jaybeezey: HotWingConspiracy: So many disappointed racists. This just isn't panning out for you guys.

Right? They all wanted a guilty verdict and can't understand how trials and evidence work.

Oh...wait...you're talking about the other guys that were responding to the threats of rioting. I get it.

So really, you're asking us to believe they weren't predicting riots prior to those twitter posts? It's been going on for months.


I wasn't looking at Zimmerman trial threads months ago, so i'll take your word for it.

heili skrimsli: eraser8: Selma Mora's.

Unfortunately for her, what she testified to (Martin being shot while prone with Zimmerman on his back) could not have happened. Martin was shot in the chest at a 90 degree angle. Selma Mora was simply wrong.


He is thinking of someone else. Which is typical. He can't even get the names right.
Mora didn't even know anything was going on until after the gunshot. She then went outside to witness Zimmerman's version of events. But there was Jayne Syrdyka who said "the bigger person" on top, and BDLR explained to us how a loose hoodie might make someone seem larger(dumbass prosecutor shot so many holes in their own version of events). Jayne's thought that she saw the gun shot happen with George firing down is forensically impossible.

Facts are racist.

HotWingConspiracy: zeroman987: HotWingConspiracy: zeroman987: HotWingConspiracy: BraveNewCheneyWorld: HotWingConspiracy: BraveNewCheneyWorld: HotWingConspiracy: Popcorn Johnny: eraser8: Yeah, I didn't think you could answer the question.

I already answered the question in a thread yesterday and I'm not going to keep playing his stupid game. He's a farking racist and so is anybody else who starts making assumptions that a person holds a particular view on the case or its aftermath based on the race of those involved.

So you mean like you, right? Because you've been going on for quite some time about how black people were sure to riot, because that's what black people do, right?

When black people promise that they're going to riot by the thousands, is it racist to believe them?

Again, black people share a hive mind and have no self control. We get it.

Ok, so, when black people promise by the thousands to do something, I'll have to say they're liars in order to be considered "not a racist" by you.  Makes perfect sense!

Or you can be like me, use your head, and correctly state that there wasn't going to be any riot.

BTW, do you really want us to believe you weren't predicting riots prior to seeing those tweets?

Except in every TM thread, half of your arguments were that TM had to "confront" GZ because he was scared of GZ and black people are all afraid of the cops.

No I never said that, liar.

As the rest of your drivel was premised on this lie, there is no need to address it.

You did! I stated that TM should have called the cops instead of staying on the phone with his girlfriend. And you posted that it was understandable that he didn't because he probably thought they would harass him.

Go ahead and post a link to this specific comment.

Dude you have lost you freaking mind. This isn't about race.

Racists predicting that black people will riot is most certainly about race.


I apologise, it was fredklein who made that comment.

However, in that case, why didn't TM call the cops if he thought he was being stalked. Why did he stay on the phone with his girlfriend instead of calling 911?

Well, I'm sorry, Moonbeam, but for the purposes of accuracy, people with significantly more expertise in this field have chosen to subdivide groups of Americans.  You may be shocked to find out that they also measure income.  I'm sure Karl Marx wouldn't approve, but here we are.

LasersHurt: jfivealive: use of the phrase 'crazy ass cracker'

Zimmerman: farking punks, assholes
Martin: crazy ass cracker

Yeah, I can see where this is more a Martin thing, yep.


Please stop cherry picking phrases from my replies.  Again, I did not say that Martin was solely responsible for the confrontation, just more responsible.  Did Zimmerman use derogatory language?  Yes, but we can hear the inflection in his voice.  To me that doesn't sound like an angry man out for vigilante justice.  And then why call the police?  To warn them you are about to commit a crime?  It doesn't add up to me.  Also,  Jenteal's testimony states that Martin turned back and initiated the confrontation.  That is why I believe Martin to be more responsible for the confrontation than Zimmerman, but again not solely responsible.

Because there is no evidence to support that.

You are right. And that is sad. However, that fact does place a great deal of responsibility on TM for what happened. If a person is genuinely afraid for their personal well being, and they have the opportunity to contact the police (he had a phone and was talking to his girlfriend), the fact that they don't contact the authorities is evidence that their fear was not all that strong.

I don't have a problem with people saying GZ is partially to blame for what happened. However, ultimately, TM's actions were what got him killed and for GZ to go to jail for the decisions of his alleged attacker would be unjust because what GZ did was technically lawful and what the evidence suggests TM did was not lawful. The fact that he didn't call the cops when he had the opportunity only supports this conclusion.

Your arguments are equal to mine, just the other side of the spectrum.  If Zimmerman had gotten back in his car and waited for the police, would the confrontation not have happened?  Maybe, but we'll never know.  The 911 operator asks several questions about Martin's descriptions and actions prior to asking Zimmerman if he was following Martin.  In order to respond to those questions, Martin would need to be in eyesight of Zimmerman.  To me it seems the operator, once realizing the questions he was asking, were possibly placing Zimmerman in danger (and he testified that he could be held personally liable for placing a caller in danger) that's when he recommended to Zimmerman not to follow.  Zimmerman then says ok.  The altercation then occurred approximately 100 yards from his vehicle.  It just doesn't seem to me like he continued following after it was recommended that he stop.  Was it a poor judgment call for him to exit the vehicle, while carrying his weapon, instead of just sitting tight and waiting for the police?  Yes I believe so, but not as poor of a judgment as Martin, to turn back and confront Zimmerman.
