GORDON: clancifer: I wonder if he has begun to regret his little vigilante hunt & kill episode.

Serious question: do people actually believe this happened?


Do people still believe that OJ Simpson killed people even though a criminal court didn't find him guilty?

/Wonder how much overlap there is between the OJ=Guilty and Zimmerman=Innocent crowds
 
2014-02-15 06:13:35 PM  
Was that an article with information, or is Fark just greenlighting some bozo calling himself "TBogg" ranting about his ill-informed opinions about the whole Zimmerman/Martin incident?

No matter which "side" you are on, this is just a stupid article.

Regardless of what caused him to shoot, he did follow a kid around with a gun and eventually shot him.

Uh, no.

St. Skittles (that's what some of us call him) attacked Zimmerman.  He was knocking Zimmerman's head against the ground, and in case you didn't know, you can die of head injuries.  So in a sense St. Skittles was armed--with the pavement.

It was self-defense, plain and simple.

I might add that Skittles and watermelon juice (which is what he had, not iced tea) along with a third ingredient (I think it's cough syrup) are used to make a drug.  No, I haven't done it, but I read about it.

So St. Skittles wasn't the innocent little saint the media was portraying him as.


Interesting. I'm not sure I've seen this particular species of troll. Do go on....

Remember guys, if you're getting the shiat beat out of you by a black kid, just let him do his thing. Eventually he'll get tired and when you're in the hospital getting treatment for your injuries, take comfort in the fact it was statistically unlikely to have happened to you.

Just make sure your nurse brings you plenty of charts and graphs that you can snuggle with, provided you're conscious and physically able to snuggle after the assault.

what matters is this  mr zimmerman appears to be unable to find a way to fade into the multitudes of americans coast to coast - this is, btw, something that ex-cons manage to do - that he wasn't convicted and still can't manage speaks more about the man than his actions that night.

I don't know about that myself. It seems the media is more obsessed with him out of white guilt and the fact that they can <i>make</i> a story out of him than anything else.

Look, I would call myself a liberal, but this is all insane if you ask me. People can't let go of the fact that someone can attempt to beat someone to death and it's legal to use deadly force to protect yourself. Everyone outside the case is injecting this insane racism into the case that I haven't ever been able to really see.

It seems that people expect racism, so it must be there.

Because members of the racebater brigade are morons. Martin fled and then came back and jumped Zimmerman. Martin initiated first physical contact. That's why Zimmerman's defense didn't involve Stand Your Ground at all - the case was easily made that it was straight self-defense. Further, the evidence("Creepy ass cracker!") shows that Martin's racism and prejudice against gays made him come back after he got home and jump Zimmerman in the first place.

But please, keep siding with Martin. It shows how little character is required of someone for you to hold them up as a martyr. No guilt like white guilt.


Writing rational thoughts here is a waste of electrons.  Don't bother, this is Fark.  Trayvon was a Straight-A's angel, totally no purple drank in his system at all, and George Zimmerman is a closet Klansman.

From my own observations, about 75% of the black population. The other half have been victims of black on black crime and think Trayvon had it coming.

Also, about 100% of the liberal population things this is what happened.


Considering Zimmerman himself stated under oath that he followed Trayvon and ended up shooting him, how else would you describe it?  He didn't have to follow the kid, but he chose to do so, thus "hunt", and since Zimmerman is not law enforcement, any action taken against Trayvon was vigilantism.  Since he did in fact kill Trayvon, it would be accurate to describe it as a "vigilante hunt & kill."  If you or Zimmerman have an issue with that description, too f*cking bad.  A whole lot of people have an issue with Zimmerman not letting the police do their job.

No, no one calls him that. Even people who legitimately believe that it was self-defense and that the entire situation was provoked by Martin don't call him that.

Maybe you're confusing us with your friends at Stormfront.

You might add that, but you'd demonstrate you have shiat-all idea what you're talking about. "Grape Drank" is a grain alcohol, grape juice or kool-aid, and codeine cough syrup OR promethazine (phenergan)

10?  You're off by a factor of ten


Zimmerman was raked over the coals multiple times by a legal system that's set up to be EXTREMELY unfair to people accused of a crime.

I should know. I've been arrested and detained for more than three months on zero evidence, zero witnesses, and no clear explanation of what I was alleged to have done. In other words, in America if you follow the rules and don't do anything THEY CAN STILL ARREST YOU FOR OVER 100 DAYS! That is the system you live in. America's laws are EVIL and it's horribly difficult to actually defend yourself against charges.

Now, Zimmerman was found next to a dead body holding the gun that shot the boy and told the police he did it ON CAMERA. Remember, this is the system were you can be arrested for doing nothing, held for 100 days in the hopes you do something, then released without even seeing a judge because if you get a trial you can counter-sue for wrongful arrest. The system where being a poor black man in Texas can land you on DEATH ROW. Zimmerman shot a 17 year old boy to death and admitted it on camera. Special federal prosecutors came out of their castles of bones to be his undoing with all the unfair legal powers that would entail encouraged by a public made frothy with falsified evidence from the incident. And they STILL couldn't make a murder charge stick.

Moral of the story: Whatever happened that night, the end result was that not even federal prosecutes with more than a year to prepare a case couldn't convince six women that a portly man was the bad guy. Clearly the boy did something wrong. Zimmerman's life was ruined already, but it was a legal shooting. It's time for the media to move on to actual news.

Questioning the premise on which to insert hatred towards an individual or group of individuals on Fark is white knighting. You are either part of the mob mentality or you want George Zimmerman (or whoever we're hating at the time) to sleep with you. There are no gray areas.
