steamingpile: I think my point usually is that worry about shiat in your own community before biatching about shiat others do to people from your community. It makes it easier to take you seriously.


So this black community you are endlessly biatching about - that must be yours, right?

Benevolent Misanthrope: WTF does this guy have on the local yokels that the cops keep farking up investigations in his favor?


Father is a judge, ie. on the side of law enforcement (even though technically they're supposed to be impartial). Professional courtesy.
 
2013-09-10 11:58:22 PM  

freak7: 1. Shellie claimed that George punched her father in the face and that he had a "mark" and that it looked like his nose was broken. The police found no indication that the father had been struck. The father also declined in pressing charges for this phantom assault.

2. Shellie was on the phone with 911 when the police arrived on scene. She told the operator that the police were there and that George was in his car. The police say that George was standing on the lawn when they arrived.

3. Shellie claimed in the 911 call that George had his hand on his gun and was patting it, daring her to come closer. No gun was found on George. She then changed her story to say that she never saw a gun.

Somebody is going to jail, and it isn't George. Lying to 911 when on probation for lying to a judge is pretty farking stupid.


And the fact that GZ's lawyer  admitted he had a gun on him is...

He's from the North GA community, you know those upstanding "mountain denizens" that have given us meth, poor hygiene, obesity, and Honey Boo Boo.

But he'll go on and on about some stupid 16 year old black kids represent an entire race of people.
 
2013-09-11 12:03:27 AM  
Just so we have this straight. Shellie said in her 911 call that George was in his truck with his gun asking them to come closer.
This was after the iPad incident and the alleged attack on her dad and just before the cops rolled up.
this is the video of George surrendering to the cops when they pulled up. As you can see they've already instructed him to walk backwards towards them with his hands over his head.
he's coming from his truck. he's in the street not the yard.
also in this video you can see that George is taking pics of what she is putting in her truck. then he goes around and locks the door to the house. and exits from the garage. all the while Shellie is running around with the iPad recording him.  then at about 2:45 left in the video you see her dad I'm guessing backing away quickly very defensively almost stumbling out of the garage. (george is in there with a friend of his who is huge by the way) then George comes out acting very aggressively holding his hand up near his shirt where a shoulder holster would be and motioning for them in a very daring way to come closer while Shellie is on the phone. He has the iPad and then takes out a knife and cracks it open then flings it. and walks back to the truck.

Looks like he removed and pocketed the SD card from the iPad too. Whatever it was she got him on tape doing he sure doesn't want anyone to see it.

Not to worry, people.  I've been assured by a number of people who know how the world really works that none of this is actually happening.

And this is why no one takes you seriously.

See, this isn't about any "community". It's about one cop-wannabe asshole who somehow got the idea that this boy was a suspect, and that he was the only one who could right the wrong of this obvious lawbreaker who had the nerve to walk down the street in the rain with his hood pulled up over his head.

The whole story is about people who not only exceed the bounds of their authority, but their mental capacity as well. Zimmerman was an idiot, an idiot who believed what he had been fed by the media about young black men, and who acted on that by leaving his truck and approaching Martin, thereby starting a chain of events which led to Martin's murder.

"Community" my ass. That's in your head.

Martin wasn't murdered. He was killed while committing a violent assault. World of difference.
Martin was the only person who committed a crime that night, and he got what he deserved.

Sounds like destruction of evidence to me.

Was somebody operating that security camera or do they have smart security cameras now that automatically follow detected movement?

How many times do the facts need to be reported before some of you listen to them?
 
2013-09-11 07:36:18 AM  
The police have released their dash cam footage and it shows George being ordered out of his truck, so that's one discrepancy between accounts that can be cleared up.

I think that the actual statement from the police was something like "a gun was not recovered from the suspect", as long as we're adhering to the facts.  That's not the same thing as saying defintively that he didn't have one.

Dwindle: Zimmerman had every right in the world to follow that clown around, regardless of why he thought he was a threat.


So in your world something a person has the "right" to do is equivalent to something which is "smart" to do?
You have the "right" to jump off a cliff... but is that the smart thing to do?
Here's a clue: just because something can be done doesn't mean that it should be done.
You might want to write that last one down.

There's good reason why the local cops tell neighborhood watch people to watch, but do not follow, do not approach, do not confront, and do not try to apprehend. Just watch and call the cops. Says so in the booklet he got from them. Zimmerman was too stupid to even follow those simple instructions, and murdered a kid.

You're as much a moron as he is, and I am thankful you're not in my neighborhood.

Mi-5: Curious that none of the GZ defenders from the nearless endless GZ trial are here right now.  They've no answer for this latest GZ behaviour.  So the guy basically uses his gun in any and all situations when he is merely "threatened" if you can call it that.  So I guess the iPad had it coming because it was a deadly weapon that could inflict grievous bodily injury or death.

I'm shocked and appalled by their absence.


Hi. No gun was used. Feel better? I'd guess he bought that iPad since Shellie is allergic to work. Biatch was baiting him into a confrontation. Fark her disloyal ass.

Are you aware that the police released a statement that they observed no signs of an injury to the father's face? Again, step out of the thread, learn the facts, and then resume comments.


Are you aware that the police have released conflicting statements on the exact same incidents that happened just two days ago?

That said... If there's anything I've learned on Fark, it's that law enforcement officers are flawless when it comes to upholding their duties to society. They are always thorough so that they can get the details right all the time, and they never ever try to cover for their buddies. (They're also doctors and able to sign off on a medical opinion, too!) The fact that police officers are always so detail-oriented is why you never hear stories of them arriving at the wrong house with or without a warrant and hassling a completely innocent family.
