Not that I condone gunning this guy down, but vests typically do not cover heads.

He needs bullet proof condoms.

Well, it would mean the end of hearing about the guy ever again.

I mean, I'm not saying I want someone to murder him. I'm just searching for options where his name basically permanently exits the public lexicon. That is one way I can think of.
 
2014-02-17 03:25:50 PM  
I'd likely wear a bulletproof vest too, if I'd had threats from as many people as he has.

FTFA: "I'd like to professionally ... continue my education and hopefully become an attorney...He says anyone he interacts with-say, his doctor-ends up getting death threats.

If this is true, it is not cool. At all. I shouldn't get a death threat just because he happens to enroll as a student in one of my classes, for example.

Why do people know who his doctor is? I don't buy it.

As I say in every thread about this guy.... if he wants to have anything close to a normal life, he needs to stay the fark out of the media spotlight that he keeps thrusting himself into and keep a low profile.  i honestly wouldn't think about the guy at all if he didn't keep giving interviews and stoking the flames.

Goes without saying.  Then again, you probably aren't a slack-jawed fatback b*tch who wants to get away with gunning down somebody.  Stop me if I'm assuming too much.

Seems it's not sufficient that he was found not guilty.

Greedy, fat, irresponsible fark.  There are still consequences.  And not that I'd ever encourage violence against you, I find the idea of you looking over your shoulder for the rest of your miserable life quite satisfying.

And yes, a smarter man would count his blessings and keep a low profile.

2014-02-17 04:41:29 PM  
Let's discuss THE FACTS of this interview.

George Zimmerman was just wanting to be left alone when the drive-by, lamestream MSM mainstream media TRICKED him into giving an interview.  Poor George only wants to be left alone, to watch his neighborhood in peace, but the media won't let that happen.

As further proof, the media is now making him say stupid things AND they're filming the entire thing with cameras and reporting it through their lamestream media outlets.  George just wants to be left alone and box DMX in peace.

Is there no end to the depravity of the liberal media?

How, exactly, would people know who his doctor is?

Calling shenanigans.
 
2014-02-17 04:43:56 PM  
He wants to become a lawyer to stop "another miscarriage of justice" like what happened to him. The fark? He got away with murder. So even he thinks he should have been found guilty?
 
2014-02-17 04:43:58 PM  
Why his life is no longer "normal": He wears a bulletproof vest whenever he leaves his home-but he has no permanent abode. "I'm totally homeless." He hasn't had to collect welfare, and is willing to work as a cook if he has to, but he hasn't gotten to that point yet; he's being supported by his family.

ManateeGag: so, aim lower?  Gotcha.


Yah, aiming lower is the way to go- there's some major arteries down there that can ensure a bleed-out. I wore a vest daily for several years (MP) and while It was comfortable, when I got home at night, even a hot night, taking that thing off sent shivers through me. It's like a heat sink; I'd get acclimated to wearing it, but when it came off it felt lit taking my core temperature off.

Vigilante justice is really, really shiatty. We have a justice system and courts for a reason, and fark you for saying anyone deserves to get attacked by vigilantes.

I remember watching a neat thing on one of the discovery network channels back when they were good about something similar. With a heated vest and no other warm clothing (not even gloves) there was no loss of motor skills out in freezing temperatures.
It was very neat to see, I wonder if they're at all feasible for personal use.

I'm not saying that vigilante justice is a good thing, it's not.  Mr. Z. made his choice, and now has to live with the consequences of that choice.  He could have decided not to be a hot-head and wait for the police to show up.

My wife makes fun of me because I wear a vest (non-ballistic) often when I'm working out in the yard and stuff. Especially when I'm splitting wood or shoveling snow. I just look like a dork sometimes. Anecdotally I agree that very often a simple vest works better than a coat. I never tried a heated vest, but Kevlar comes pretty darn close in feeling.

Heh. I could see that working well, yeah. Since the body prioritizes heating the torso and head (frostbite, etc), thick vests can indirectly provide warmth to the hands and feet. The human body truly is an amazing thing.

Krylon Fartin was lucky that doing that purple drinking drug didn't cause him to take off all of his clothes and jump off of a roof because he thought he could fly.  My brother-in-law is a cop and he said that this happened.  That's what that drug makes you do.  He should be thanking brave George.

He was charged with a crime he didn't commit by a DA ineptly trying to make her career on a high-profile case (when what he was actually guilty of was manslaughter), and then she tried to tilt the outcome using the media.  That was, actually, an abuse of the legal system.

But yeah, dude's WAY too dim to make it as a lawyer... being kind of on the stupid end of the bell-curve is why the dumbass ended up killing a man he should never have even engaged in the first place, and his personal decisions since haven't done anything to raise my estimation of his IQ.

// And, realistically, without the DA going full throw-the-book at him and  clearly trying to up the ante for her political career, he'd be doing ten to fifteen for manslaughter like most people that start a fight that ends in a dead body.  Actually kind of similar to why OJ got off... if some of the cops hadn't clearly been out to get him, he'd be in jail too.

From the comments:

These incidents are all that racist black community you know what, cowering under the Barney dust ruffle, on his crib. Just because the chimp family, Obama are freeloading in our, not their, off White House does not make a black boy anything other than what his kind has been (real or simply by perception) for the past..........forever, in this country. Obama is guilty of depraved indifference in each and every one of these tragic cases. He started with his smart mouthed black brutha, in Cambridge......right up to today. Uppity negro, which Barack truly prides himself on being has real and deadly consequences......but he fans the flames of hatred of black, browns, gays toward real American whites. Then when something goes terribly wrong, he runs and hides, hiring MSNBC to do his bidding. Watch a week of Cops and The First 48, then get back to me about it's the white man's fault. I dare you..........you know who you are.
 
2014-02-17 05:13:07 PM  
Oh, please. Zimmerman was found Not Guilty. He took out  a piece of trash. The world is a safer place because of Zimmerman, and no amount of liberal hand wringing or weeping with the symphony of violins is going to change it. Martin attacked Zimmerman. Martin is no longer here. This is not a bad thing. I'd let Zimmerman lead my neighborhood watch any time he wants.

In case you are too ignorant to look it up, the first 911 call was in regards to a fight. That would be Martin attacking Zimmerman like some crazed beast out to sate his only desire: human blood. The next call, within the same minute, was in regards to Martin blocking Zimmermans defensive shot with his chest area, so even the death of Martin is really Martin's fault. Three minutes later, a bystander took pictures of the horrific injuries inflicted by Martin upon Zimmerman, showing it was a clear case of self defense. It is not Zimmermans fault that Martin took a bag of skittles to a gun fight.

Except none of that is a miscarriage of justice. If that's how it went down, justice actually happened. He didn't get convicted of the crime.

But yes, I'm content to leave it that he's a moron.

Matrix Flavored Wasabi: From the comments:


My personal favorite is "Obama is guilty of depraved indifference".    Indifference by its very nature cannot be depraved.

Like most Barakku Obummer comments, it likely means something to its intended audience.  After seeing lawlessness about a hundred times I figured out it's actually a Bible thing.  Obama is the antichrist and whatnot.

Oh_Enough_Already: Since Trayvon Martin was killed, there's probably been what, 3 thousand? 5 thousand black teenagers killed in America?

And the amounts of farks given by the while guilt crowd at Fark?

When they were all killed by other black teens?

Undetectable.

Yeah, so, there's that.

Trolling headline is trolling.


You do realize that when those kids get caught they usually go to jail or some other correctional facility (if they are underage)... right? You also realize that a black kid killing another black kid isn't likely to be racially motivated... right? You also also realize that a young black gang member is pretty unlikely to claim he was doing it as part of a neighborhood watch initiative (at least not the kind Mr. Zimmy was so enthusiastically participating in)... right?

Nonsensical talking point is nonsensical... also you sound concerned.

It's not as if there's almost daily news stories about mobs of feral black teens targeting and attacking non blacks just for sport or anything, right?

buny101: Oh, please. Zimmerman was found Not Guilty. He took out  a piece of trash. The world is a safer place because of Zimmerman, and no amount of liberal hand wringing or weeping with the symphony of violins is going to change it. Martin attacked Zimmerman. Martin is no longer here. This is not a bad thing. I'd let Zimmerman lead my neighborhood watch any time he wants.

In case you are too ignorant to look it up, the first 911 call was in regards to a fight. That would be Martin attacking Zimmerman like some crazed beast out to sate his only desire: human blood. The next call, within the same minute, was in regards to Martin blocking Zimmermans defensive shot with his chest area, so even the death of Martin is really Martin's fault. Three minutes later, a bystander took pictures of the horrific injuries inflicted by Martin upon Zimmerman, showing it was a clear case of self defense. It is not Zimmermans fault that Martin took a bag of skittles to a gun fight.


So in other words, Darwin failed - the fat pussy had a gun, and thwarted natural selection. His artificial appliance allowed him to kill the genetically more fit Martin - who, by rights should have bashed his soft head in and gone on to a happy life of breeding fat white wives of men like Zimmerman in trailer parks just like that one, thus improving the overall human genome.
Or so it would seem, based on what you say.

People, by their nature, use symbols and martyrs to discuss causes. It doesn't mean the other cases are swept under the rug, just that people, for whatever reason, use one or two cases instead of all of them to discuss an issue. It's human nature. Good luck changing that.

"I'd like to professionally ... continue my education and hopefully become an attorney. I think that's the best way to stop the miscarriage of justice that happened to me from happening to somebody else."
-Zimmerman

So, is he admitting that the verdict was wrong and he should be in prison? Also, he's going to redeem himself by seeing that the next guy who acts the way he did is actually put in jail? Hrmmm... I guess I just got to post this and move on:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yXRGdZdonM .

white women? You are implying zimmerman is white? He isn't white. He is hispanic. Oh, you know nothing, right? You throw out darwin because he is a big name in the world of science...but you lose the argument right after that.

Are humans more advanced then sharks? oh, you betcha! but, we can't kill a shark with our bare hands (usually). Due to evolution, our big brains have allowed us to invent methods to kills sharks. Like, um...guns. How about a tiger? The evolutionary midget compared to us, well, it can kill us in a second. India right now is hunting a tiger that has killed 10 people. Humans, with the advancements in evolution, have a gun. A silverback gorilla, which is in our direct evolutionary  chain, is much stronger than a human. Given a bare hands match, the gorilla would totally destroy a human. But...oh, what's this? Our evolution is in science, and we have a gun.

So...of the two, which is the most advanced? Well, obviously, the one with the gun.

OregonVet: ManateeGag: so, aim lower?  Gotcha.

Yah, aiming lower is the way to go- there's some major arteries down there that can ensure a bleed-out. I wore a vest daily for several years (MP) and while It was comfortable, when I got home at night, even a hot night, taking that thing off sent shivers through me. It's like a heat sink; I'd get acclimated to wearing it, but when it came off it felt lit taking my core temperature off.




/Agreed. I had to wear on while on duty as a police officer. Was nice on warm humid Illinois nights.

...he seems to get into a lot of police-y situations with the ladies....
...selling his 'artwork' online to bidders....
...touring gun factories and posing for publicity photos...


I'm sure glad he's getting left alone!


What jobs do you imagine he'd be able to get where he could live his life quietly in peace?

I can perfectly understand trying to milk every money making opportunity I could if I was in his position, since it'd be difficult to know when I'd be able to work a normal job ever again.

Even after getting a not-guilty verdict, plenty of people will only care about their feelings rather than facts and decide he's the worst villain in history since Hitler, and he's tracked by enough people obsessed with him that it probably would have to wear down his sanity as well since he likely has people wanting to take his picture when he just goes to a McDonald's for a burger.

So yeah, seems pretty sensible that he would be concerned about the fact that he can't really be left alone and he still has to do something to make money while  he still can.

Zimmerman isn't the suicidal type imo.  He loves himself too much and has no remorse for what he's done. He truly believes he's the victim here.
He does have anger management issues however and likes to put on the false bravado/machismo front. That might get his ass killed one day.

Nah, I think he'll kill someone else, and that time, the charges will stick. He's been taken in for menacing people with a gun since the trial ended - it's pretty much his inevitable end, unless something fundamentally changes about him.

they didn't convict him. he broke the law it just didn't get past that jury. they believed his lie. that he was jumped/ambushed. that his head was being smashed on the concrete over and over despite the lack of real physical evidence on his skull to prove it. he had a couple of small scratches and a busted nose is all. I think he tried to detain Trayvon. Trayvon wasn't going to let him and he went for his gun. Trayvon hit him in the nose and they went to the ground. George and he struggled until George got his gun out and killed him.

a stranger following you home , in the dark,in the rain,a stranger with a gun who would not answer you when you approached his vehicle but rolled up the window and instead followed you in his vehicle and then on foot. yeah that's enough for me to say he had a reason to fear imminent danger.

If he really felt threatened he could have fled. I doubt he knew he was armed or he would have never approached him. If he did know he's an even bigger idiot than Zimmerman for starting a fist fight with an armed man.


he thought he lost him and continued the the phone conversation. Zimmerman snuck up on him.

Contrary to popular belief, it actually is possible to defend yourself without firing a gun at someone.

An even better method of defense is to not put yourself in a situation like that in the first place. Observe and report would have and should have been sufficient.

Personally, I think both of them were pieces of shiat in their own unique ways and I don't think the cure for cancer is going to die with either of them. But your (strangely common) comment has always baffled me. You make Martin out to be some kind of animal who couldn't be expected to keep his violent impulses at bay. Any person should be able to question a stranger in their own neighborhood without expectation of bodily harm. Does it make him an asshole? debatable, but it's victim blaming to assign guilt to Zimmerman for what was a completely lawful action. Martin taking offense to it doesn't excuse an assault, nor does it make Zimmerman's self defense any less legitimate.

Demiglace: BeatrixK: For a guy who just wants to be left alone....
...he seems to get into a lot of police-y situations with the ladies....
...selling his 'artwork' online to bidders....
...touring gun factories and posing for publicity photos...


I'm sure glad he's getting left alone!

What jobs do you imagine he'd be able to get where he could live his life quietly in peace?

I can perfectly understand trying to milk every money making opportunity I could if I was in his position, since it'd be difficult to know when I'd be able to work a normal job ever again.

Even after getting a not-guilty verdict, plenty of people will only care about their feelings rather than facts and decide he's the worst villain in history since Hitler, and he's tracked by enough people obsessed with him that it probably would have to wear down his sanity as well since he likely has people wanting to take his picture when he just goes to a McDonald's for a burger.

So yeah, seems pretty sensible that he would be concerned about the fact that he can't really be left alone and he still has to do something to make money while  he still can.


OK - I'll bite:  I'm not saying he's the worst villian in history - however, he is one of the most monumentally stupid people in history.  I don't disagree with the verdict in his trial:  The evidence simply wasn't there.  However, if you are trying to present yourself as a person 'just trying to stay above the law and protect people', perhaps beating up your women to the point cops are called isn't a good way to help reform your image, when you KNOW the media is keeping tabs on you.  Perhaps, I dunno....plagiarizing news photos to pass off as 'art' isn't the best way to keep yourself out of the spotlight.  I would take a guess that, maybe...just maybe...if Casey freakin Anthony can manage to keep a low profile...perhaps Zimmerman has that capability as well.

The fact is...he craves the attention -- even if it's negative.   But to whine and complain about all that your own stupidity has wrought, when you clearly have no intention of doing something different to change the course of the life your own ignorance has brought upon you is disingenuous.

While yes, I agree that Zimmerman's life would be easier if he stayed home that night...framing it that way is such a cop out. His life would've also been easier if he never called the cops in the first place. Or if he called the cops, but then left it up to them to investigate.

Zimmerman makes it sound like he encountered a completely unavoidable situation. This wasn't a traffic accident or getting struck with a bolt of lightening or something. He made choices which directly led to all of this. Can he not see that?

He's an absolute idiot. He still didn't break the law and he doesn't deserve mob justice.

they didn't convict him. he broke the law it just didn't get past that jury. they believed his lie. that he was jumped/ambushed. that his head was being smashed on the concrete over and over despite the lack of real physical evidence on his skull to prove it. he had a couple of small scratches and a busted nose is all. I think he tried to detain Trayvon. Trayvon wasn't going to let him and he went for his gun. Trayvon hit him in the nose and they went to the ground. George and he struggled until George got his gun out and killed him.



Was there any evidence that Zimmerman attacked first or attempted to detain Trayvon?

Zimmerman may be guilty of exaggeration but  it's hard to accurately access whats going on when your being punched in the face.

If that person had jumped me and was bashing my head into the ground, yes, I'd like to get away with gunning them down, since I'm within my legal right to do so.

Obviously I'd prefer not to get into that situation in the first place though.

Somacandra: FTFA: "I'd like to professionally ... continue my education and hopefully become an attorney...He says anyone he interacts with-say, his doctor-ends up getting death threats.

If this is true, it is not cool. At all. I shouldn't get a death threat just because he happens to enroll as a student in one of my classes, for example.


1) As someone above pointed out, he's almost certainly lying. There's no reason anyone would know who his doctor is... unless he's going around telling people.

2) In that case, he's a massive asshole for publicizing information like who his doctor is, knowing full well when he does so that his doctor might receive death threats.

3) It's wise to avoid all contact with him whatsoever under any circumstances though. If he's telling the truth, why would you want to make yourself a target? If he's lying, he's not only a child killer, but a dishonest crook playing on the compassion of good people for personal gain. Either way, it's best to shun him.

Well, a comment i just wrote in a GOP thread applies here as well -- the mentally ill are not aware of their maladies.  Let's not pretend for a second this man doesn't have at least a couple of mental illnesses. my best guess would be sociopath with an anger management problem, but who really knows?

He clearly doesn't grasp that wanting to be left alone to live a normal life does not go hand in hand with doing interviews with the press claiming to be the true victim when we all know even though he was not found guilty of the charges against him, he's only known for killing an unarmed teenage boy who was smaller than he was. Who wasn't able to present his side of the story, due to being dead.  Maybe go and stay away from the media for awhile.  don't offer to "celebrity' (makes me want to throw up that he'd be considered a celebrity) box black men.  Things like that.  It might help.

But again, the insane are unaware of their maladies.

Yes, I understand that. But Zimmerman now has the benefit of hindsight. And what I'm saying is...given what he now knows, is there anything he could've done to avoid what happened? That's what I'd like to ask him.

I'm not trying to absolve Martin of blame. If he lived and Zimmerman died, I'd ask him the same thing. Given what you know now...is there anything you could've done to avoid what happened? If Martin's answer was "I should've never gone to the store" it would also be a cop out, imo. Because it implies that he had no choices.

Full disclosure...in earlier Zimmerman threads a year ago, I flippantly posted that Martin should've stayed home. My thinking has evolved on this topic since then. There were other choices he could've made to avoid their confrontation as well.

It wasn't wise but following someone isn't  illegal. Beating some one up because you don't want them following you on the other hand.....

had Trayvon been packing and shot Zimmerman in the alley he could have easily gotten off on self defense. If he could have found an impartial jury.

But that doesn't mean I'm obligated to give the slightest shi*t if his life is an unceasing parade of death threats and physical attacks.

And were I to serve on a jury for a person accused of threatening, attacking, or even killing Zimmerman, I would also be allowed to cast my vote however I saw fit. Whether or not I have a "right" to nullify wouldn't even come into issue were I to express any "not guilty" vote only in terms relating to a choice to believe or disbelieve pertinent evidence.

In fact, I'm allowed to hope the animal gets threatened and physically attacked every day until he commits suicide. I'm allowed to even express that hope in public forums like these!

And were I to serve on a jury for a person accused of threatening, attacking, or even killing Zimmerman, I would also be allowed to cast my vote however I saw fit. Whether or not I have a "right" to nullify wouldn't even come into issue were I to express any "not guilty" vote only in terms relating to a choice to believe or disbelieve pertinent evidence.

"I'm sorry. It just really seems to me like Officer Friendly is lying. In my experience people who express themselves the way he does just can't be trusted. I don't believe a word of his report. In fact, I'm pretty sure Zimmerman is still alive somewhere, menacing some black kid for holding a watering can or rolled up newspaper or something."


Yeah, only Zimmerman can get away with making other people feel threatened, and then killing them for it! All you normal people should just suck it up and deal with it!

You fark. He shot someone who was pounding his head into the pavement. Even though you're a farkface I'd still support you if you shot someone who was pounding your head into the pavement. Would you support me if someone was pounding my head into the dust and I shot them? I hope so, so we can be BFF's.

That just depends on whether or not you had been stalking that person prior to them standing their ground against you.

I may be very drunk but even I know that's not true.

So Zimmerman wasn't following Martin around the neighborhood?

Oh, I must have forgotten the part where following someone was cause for attempted murder.

You don't think that being followed around by a stranger would have made Martin feel threatened?


No, I don't. I think you'll be hard pressed to find people here who would admit to feeling so threatened by maybe thinking someone was following them that smashing their head open on a pavement was an acceptable course of action.

Your white knighting certainly makes for a grand romantic gesture. But I still think the odds of Zimmerman having sex with you are pretty slim. Not because you don't deserve it, mind you. Your heroic defense here certainly warrants at least one good Zimmerman lay. It's just that I don't think he's likely to read this thread, and if he does, to get enough of your personal information to find you to deliver your reward.

Rapmaster2000: Let's discuss THE FACTS of this interview.

George Zimmerman was just wanting to be left alone when the drive-by, lamestream MSM mainstream media TRICKED him into giving an interview.  Poor George only wants to be left alone, to watch his neighborhood in peace, but the media won't let that happen.

As further proof, the media is now making him say stupid things AND they're filming the entire thing with cameras and reporting it through their lamestream media outlets.  George just wants to be left alone and box DMX in peace.

Is there no end to the depravity of the liberal media?


All he wants to do is create his art. Which he creates, creatively, using his imagination and skills with a paintbrush and not at all by printing out 'shopped photos. Why do the lamestream media hate art?

The My Little Pony Killer: Seriously. I live in a very busy neighborhood. If I were to question every person who walked by who I didn't personally know, I wouldn't have time in my day to get anything else done.

And your neighbor sounds disgusting.


yep - i am on a busy street with a bus route through it.

And the neighbor is creepy as hell.  The first time he was asked politely to leave me alone, he said he was "lonely".  As if that is my problem.  it's amazing what people can do to frighten and intimidate other people. I used to make sure i had a small baton on me when I left/came home in case the creep moved in on me. That's the reality for some people - a lot of women feel threatened enough to always be on the defense.  i am sure black teenagers feel the same way a lot of the time.

sobriquet by any other name: Baz744: 1) As someone above pointed out, he's almost certainly lying. There's no reason anyone would know who his doctor is... unless he's going around telling people.

It's always possible he's so unpopular that receptionist phoned it in on the side.. you'd want him in your office?

I wouldn't.


It's possible. But I also know people who work in health care live in daily terror of HIPAA. It's a paper tiger, but they don't know that. I doubt very many receptionists would be willing to take that kind of risk.

Any event, we don't have any evidence of it. And Zimmerman has a history of making self-serving false statements. So the best inference is that he's just lying to win sympathy from people stupid enough to believe him.

When Zimmerman wants to paint Trayvon as suspicious while on the phone with police:

"He ran."

Later,  when Zimmerman realized Trayvon running suggested the boy feared him, which could legally work against him:

"Ran? Who said he ran? I sure as hell didn't! He didn't run! He skipped gayly away evincing not the slightest awareness of this world's illusory trifles!"

Other of Zimmerman's Greatest Hits:

"What? Stand Your Ground? Is that like a video game or a band or something? I've never heard of that. I swear!"

Zimmerman had taken and earned an A in a college course with a unit on Stand Your Ground. He was obsessed with personal defense, becoming a police officer, and even patrolling his own neighborhood for unarmed black teenagers. He took martial arts classes. He carried a firearm with him daily. He knew exactly what SYG was, and it was in the forefront of his mind).

"The dispatcher instructed me to get in a place where I could see Trayvon! Yeah, that's it! That's the ticket!"

The dispatcher said no such thing at any time. In fact, quite famously, the dispatcher said almost exactly the opposite.

1) As someone above pointed out, he's almost certainly lying. There's no reason anyone would know who his doctor is... unless he's going around telling people.

2) In that case, he's a massive asshole for publicizing information like who his doctor is, knowing full well when he does so that his doctor might receive death threats.

3) It's wise to avoid all contact with him whatsoever under any circumstances though. If he's telling the truth, why would you want to make yourself a target? If he's lying, he's not only a child killer, but a dishonest crook playing on the compassion of good people for personal gain. Either way, it's best to shun him.


When has George Zimmerman ever said anything that checked out as truthful? I don't pay that much attention to him, but I do see the occasional "Zimmerman rips off stock photo; claims it's an original painting" story. As far as I can tell, he's a pathological liar with lots of other fun sociopathic tendencies.

Thunderpipes: George is an American hero. He saved so many future victims with a single shot. Shot rang out with the sound of justice.

I mean, he shot a violent, drug dealing young man who attacked him. He did what every single one of your people would actually do if it happened to you. Obama should give him a medal, after all, if Obama had a son, he would look like George.

I've been followed so many times...at night and in inclement weather (the scariest was by a group of young men through an abandoned playground on a snowy Thanksgiving), in cars, on foot. I used to live in Chicago (once in a gang neighborhood) and now I live in a state where there is no permit requirement for CC so the likelihood that one of those people was packing is pretty high. Are you saying I would have been correct to turn and start a physical altercation with those people? I always ran away out of fear of getting robbed or raped or the unknown, including the off chance that it was all in my head, but maybe I was mistaken and I would have been right to try bash their brains in just to be sure.

Do you think that being followed for a few blocks should even be considered stalking? Personally I think it's an insult to the people who actually have to get restraining orders against stalkers due to real threats of violence.

Anyway, Zimmerman won his case based on the evidence provided. Not only should the violence threatening loonies get some ointment for their butthurt and move on, but so should Fark. This constant parade of Zim stories on the main page is ridiculous.

Telling astonishing, easily disprovable lies actually is a marker for sociopathy.

"The dispatcher told me to get into a place where I could see him."

elysive: Anyway, Zimmerman won his case based on the evidence provided.


Zimmerman's apologists make too much of his acquittal. It does not mean the man is actually innocent. It just means the state failed to meet its burden of proof.

So let's say a juror interprets "beyond a reasonable doubt" to mean "98% or higher chance of guilt." That juror would acquit even if he believed guilt to a 97% certainty.

As members of the public, we retain the right to believe Zimmerman is guilty.

It occurs to me though, would it make sense to add another option to "guilty" and "not guilty?" What if the options were "guilty," "guilt not sufficiently proven," and "actually innocent?"

Something to think about.

There's no credible evidence Trayvon started the physical altercation either. Hardly anyone thinks Trayvon was justified in turning around and randomly beating Zimmerman just for following him. Rather, the theory is that Trayvon did exactly what Zimmerman claimed to have been doing in investigating a suspicious character. A fight somehow broke out.

The thing Trayvon's defamers forget is because Zimmerman was armed with a loaded firearm, any altercation that broke out was potentially lethal for Trayvon. That means Trayvon had the right to use lethal force in his own defense; even unto the point of bashing Zimmerman's head until he lost consciousness or died.

Oh yeah. I forgot. Black kids don't have the right to defend themselves. This is America!

I really dont care if he's guilty or not just as I didnt care that much about OJ going free (he set himself up for that civil suit and ultimately got just desserts).

I would much rather guilty people go free because the govt presents a shiatty case than lower that burden of proof so that we can put innocent people in prison because feelings.  You can call him whatever you want, make up a new classification, knock yourself out, sue him even, but the trial is over and because of double jeopardy you cant try him again.

I was responding to the claim that being followed at night is sufficient threat to defend yourself/aka beat someone with fists.

From the evidence I've seen, i think the jurors did the right thing but he could also have been guilty. Same with OJ. Mind blown? Justice is not trampling over the most fundamental safeguards of our legal system seriously did no one else take a civics class in high school?

sugar_fetus: Weatherkiss: I'm curious how many Farkers in this thread who feel entitled to their own facts about the Zimmerman/Martin case similarly feel entitled to their own facts regarding that McDonald's hot coffee spill.

I am particularly amused by the anti-gun people who also wish for severe physical harm and/or death for Zimmerman.


Not to mention the fact they're anti-vigilante but want vigilante action taken against him. An Eye for an Eye, Blood for the Blood God, etc. etc.

It's easy to wish death or harm on someone you've never met and are never going to meet, based on perceptions and reasons given to you by the media.

Baz744: James10952001: You don't have to like him, hell you're allowed to hate him. You're not allowed to threaten or attack him though. The moment you do that, you're the one in the wrong.

Thank you citizen!

But that doesn't mean I'm obligated to give the slightest shi*t if his life is an unceasing parade of death threats and physical attacks. In fact, I'm allowed to hope the animal gets threatened and physically attacked every day until he commits suicide. I'm allowed to even express that hope in public forums like these!

And were I to serve on a jury for a person accused of threatening, attacking, or even killing Zimmerman, I would also be allowed to cast my vote however I saw fit. Whether or not I have a "right" to nullify wouldn't even come into issue were I to express any "not guilty" vote only in terms relating to a choice to believe or disbelieve pertinent evidence.

"I'm sorry. It just really seems to me like Officer Friendly is lying. In my experience people who express themselves the way he does just can't be trusted. I don't believe a word of his report. In fact, I'm pretty sure Zimmerman is still alive somewhere, menacing some black kid for holding a watering can or rolled up newspaper or something."


Because you are a bad person, pure and simple.

Hobodeluxe: LeroyBourne: I'll give it 6 months before he shoots himself in the head thus connecting the circle of life.  Hell, the last thread was about him losing his house.  I would never consider it, but I've never been under that kind of stress.

Zimmerman isn't the suicidal type imo.  He loves himself too much and has no remorse for what he's done. He truly believes he's the victim here.
He does have anger management issues however and likes to put on the false bravado/machismo front. That might get his ass killed one day.


Who said it'd be suicide?  He seems like the type who would accidentally shoot himself while cleaning his gun.

Baz744: elysive: I was responding to the claim that being followed at night is sufficient threat to defend yourself/aka beat someone with fists.

That's more something you read into something someone said than anything that anyone actually claimed. You divorced a remark about how Trayvon probably felt threatened by Zimmerman following him from all the rest of the known facts, and took that as a claim that Trayvon was justified in beating Zimmerman just for following him.


From the evidence I've seen, i think the jurors did the right thing but he could also have been guilty. Same with OJ. Mind blown?

Um... no?

These threads are like trainwrecks. Cant look away.

In that case, maybe you ought to refrain from scolding other people who still find the case interesting to talk about from time to time.


My original post was in response to My Little Pony Killer. Perhaps you should re-read both my comment and that to which I was responding. I believe his/her exact line was "You don't think that being followed around by a stranger would have made Martin feel threatened?". I read maybe five or six comments about stalking and following before I finally commented. You chimed in that perhaps Zimmerman started the altercation. Great. I have no grounds to counter or confirm that. I dont feel like retrying the case here. No one here really seems to want justice either (except maybe you, you seem reasonable) even if we had full access to all of the evidence of the case and knew 100% what happened.

I find these stories of Zim's schadenfreude entertaining if extremely disconcerting, but it's more disconcerting that grown people can pretend to retry a case thats already over, using ad hominem and speculation, for the sole purpose of reinforcing their own righteous personal views. Everyone can pretend that they are trying to rationally persuade others but that's a laugh. It's politics on fark. Politics on Fark is a masturbatory exercise. Either one is trying to feel better about having guns or about self defense (admittedly I'm one of those people, a woman who'se been threatened before, I"d rather not get jailed by the court of public opinion should I ever have to truly defend myself) or one's trying to elevate oneself in an enlightened way over others (either as a non racist or anti gun or maybe the Farker just dont like Zim's smug acquitted face?).

Sorry if I "scolded" you, but you initiated conversation with me and used rather speculative "evidence" to answer a question I never posed. Anyway keep debating your interesting case with others. I will read intently, but unless I see something that could be a direct attack on me (like the suggestion that someone is entitled to beat me up because I walk behind them at night), I probably wont participate. I would be happy to talk about stalking because people seem loosey goosey with that word in these threads.

I think he's obsessed with making himself pay.

I have a relative who killed someone in a drunk driving wreck the day after his 19th birthday. Did 7 years in jail, and ten years probation, but continued to get arrested for various piddly shiat.

He's been in therapy now a few years, and his problems stemmed from his inability to, if not forgive himself, just live with the knowledge of what he had done.

Judging by his post-trial arrests and his foray into trying to put himself in the ring, I'd wager that there is a possibility ZImmerman subconsciously wants to punish himself.

He knows deep down that if he'd just minded his own business, someone who is not alive right now would be alive, and he wouldn't be looking over his shoulder. That can't be easy to live with.

He wouldn't have had to defend himself if he had left the farking kid alone, like the police told him to!

It wasn't wise but following someone isn't  illegal. Beating some one up because you don't want them following you on the other hand.....

had Trayvon been packing and shot Zimmerman in the alley he could have easily gotten off on self defense. If he could have found an impartial jury.


So it's ok to shoot anyone who'se walking behind you?
Really?

a stranger following you home , in the dark,in the rain,a stranger with a gun who would not answer you when you approached his vehicle but rolled up the window and instead followed you in his vehicle and then on foot. yeah that's enough for me to say he had a reason to fear imminent danger.

If he really felt threatened he could have fled. I doubt he knew he was armed or he would have never approached him. If he did know he's an even bigger idiot than Zimmerman for starting a fist fight with an armed man.


Of course we only have Zimmerman's version of what happened right before the shooting. It is no less believable that Zimmerman cornered Martin who tried to stand his ground.

And in civilized states, shooting someone after you escalate a situation is ALSO illegal. Zimmerman stalked Martin. Martin may well have feared for his OWN life, and that's why he started hitting Zimmerman. Zimmerman escalated the situation by continuing to harass Martin. And I guarantee you he would never have said a damn thing to a white kid

As for the bullshiat about Zimmerman being "not white," It's just that- Bullshiat. He IS Hispanic... But Hispanic isn't a race, it's an ethnicity. There are white hispanics, black hispanics, and indian (Native American/ south american) Hispanics. Saying Zimmerman is not white, he's Hispanic is like saying I'm not white, I'm European.

And the bullshiat about "sizzurp" and whatever is just that: complete, fabricated bullshiat. Zimmerman MURDERED a teenager who felt threatened and tried to defend himself against some jackass who was harassing him while he was minding his own damn business.
 
2014-02-17 08:54:29 PM  

Magnanimous_J: I Browse: Zimmerman makes it sound like he encountered a completely unavoidable situation. This wasn't a traffic accident or getting struck with a bolt of lightening or something. He made choices which directly led to all of this. Can he not see that?

Personally, I think both of them were pieces of shiat in their own unique ways and I don't think the cure for cancer is going to die with either of them. But your (strangely common) comment has always baffled me. You make Martin out to be some kind of animal who couldn't be expected to keep his violent impulses at bay. Any person should be able to question a stranger in their own neighborhood without expectation of bodily harm. Does it make him an asshole? debatable, but it's victim blaming to assign guilt to Zimmerman for what was a completely lawful action. Martin taking offense to it doesn't excuse an assault, nor does it make Zimmerman's self defense any less legitimate.

"Don't get out of the car. If you do he will be forced to assault you. It's just their way, and your blood will be on your own hands."


Why did george choose not to introduce himself and ask the kid what business he had in the neighborhood when Trayvon approached his vehicle under the lights at the front of the neighborhood? Why did he choose to roll up his window then follow him through the neighborhood then on foot into a back alley in the dark with his gun instead? Why did he lie about the address as an excuse to go back there?

I can only assume that comment has absolutely nothing to do with the subject at hand. No matter if you believe Zimmerman is a murderous vigilante or a saint, one thing that is undeniable is he was not just walking behind Martin. He had reported Martin to the police and was following Martin with the singular purpose of locating Martin so that he could be detained and questioned by the police for no other reason than Zimmerman's paranoia of anyone that dared to walk in his neighborhood.

elysive: Baz744: elysive: Are you saying I would have been correct to turn and start a physical altercation with those people?

There's no credible evidence Trayvon started the physical altercation either. Hardly anyone thinks Trayvon was justified in turning around and randomly beating Zimmerman just for following him. Rather, the theory is that Trayvon did exactly what Zimmerman claimed to have been doing in investigating a suspicious character. A fight somehow broke out.

The thing Trayvon's defamers forget is because Zimmerman was armed with a loaded firearm, any altercation that broke out was potentially lethal for Trayvon. That means Trayvon had the right to use lethal force in his own defense; even unto the point of bashing Zimmerman's head until he lost consciousness or died.

Oh yeah. I forgot. Black kids don't have the right to defend themselves. This is America!

I was responding to the claim that being followed at night is sufficient threat to defend yourself/aka beat someone with fists.

As for the rest of your speculation about that night, I really dont care. Go find a juror and have a spirited conversation with them. I just would rather not find myself getting beaten by someone because I was walking or driving the same route as a paranoid person.

Morally you are right, but that is technically NOT what was said:
"Dispatcher: Are you following him?"
"Zimmerman: Yeah"
"Dispatcher: Ok, we don't need you to do that."
"Zimmerman: Ok"

Verbatim transcript. Not a single thing changed or clarified.

A normal person would have taken the "we don't need you to do that" as "back off". But some folks have a few marks unchecked on their IQ options.

So he was following him to see where he went? What word other than "following" or "walking after/behind" would you like to use?

I admit that when I see people walking behind me closely or following slowly in their cars, I assume the worst of them. It's technically possible they could be walking the same route as me or they could be occupied on their phones/google maps. They could be working up confidence to ask me out or they could be checking to see if I'm "ok" (yeah, heard that one before!). Then they really could be out to hurt me. I guess it is probably safest for me to just punch them all in the throat and sort out the details later. I'm a woman, so they should know better than to follow me at night.

MFAWG: elysive: MFAWG: elysive: Baz744: elysive: Are you saying I would have been correct to turn and start a physical altercation with those people?

There's no credible evidence Trayvon started the physical altercation either. Hardly anyone thinks Trayvon was justified in turning around and randomly beating Zimmerman just for following him. Rather, the theory is that Trayvon did exactly what Zimmerman claimed to have been doing in investigating a suspicious character. A fight somehow broke out.

The thing Trayvon's defamers forget is because Zimmerman was armed with a loaded firearm, any altercation that broke out was potentially lethal for Trayvon. That means Trayvon had the right to use lethal force in his own defense; even unto the point of bashing Zimmerman's head until he lost consciousness or died.

Oh yeah. I forgot. Black kids don't have the right to defend themselves. This is America!

I was responding to the claim that being followed at night is sufficient threat to defend yourself/aka beat someone with fists.

As for the rest of your speculation about that night, I really dont care. Go find a juror and have a spirited conversation with them. I just would rather not find myself getting beaten by someone because I was walking or driving the same route as a paranoid person.

Someone follows me off a deserted street and into an alley, and I'm just supposed to assume everything is on the up and up?

I didn't get to be this old being an idiot.

So if someone follows you into an alley (not talking about backing you up against a wall but a small street), you then attack that person and are entitled to use deadly force?

I just want clarification because I have been followed into some pretty sketchy, deserted places, and it's valuable knowledge should I be followed again. I dont want to be shot in the event they have a gun (which would make my deadly force even more justified, right?), so I will have to strike quickly.

Go fark yourself. You haven't been out of your mo ...


You're the one playing internet tough guy.

Anyway it's been fun messing with everyone's tough guy posturing. Time for me to go run...gotta practice in case someone menacing follows me and I dont want to have to break out the kung fu, or even worse, my can of whoop-ass.

It wasn't wise but following someone isn't  illegal. Beating some one up because you don't want them following you on the other hand.....

had Trayvon been packing and shot Zimmerman in the alley he could have easily gotten off on self defense. If he could have found an impartial jury.


So it's ok to shoot anyone who'se walking behind you?
Really?

a stranger following you home , in the dark,in the rain,a stranger with a gun who would not answer you when you approached his vehicle but rolled up the window and instead followed you in his vehicle and then on foot. yeah that's enough for me to say he had a reason to fear imminent danger.

/what Zimmerman did to Trayvon was vigilante justice, so if you are against it...


If someone is curb stomping you, and you shoot them, it isn't vigilante justice, it is self defense, but keep farking that chicken.

The situation could've been avoided had Zimmerman not followed him. It still doesn't mean Trayvon should have attacked him and start punching and/or stomping his head.

Morally you are right, but that is technically NOT what was said:
"Dispatcher: Are you following him?"
"Zimmerman: Yeah"
"Dispatcher: Ok, we don't need you to do that."
"Zimmerman: Ok"

Verbatim transcript. Not a single thing changed or clarified.

A normal person would have taken the "we don't need you to do that" as "back off". But some folks have a few marks unchecked on their IQ options.


Yeah, that's one argument I've never understood from the Zimmerman fan club. If a police dispatcher (or anyone, for that matter) said "ok, we don't need you to do that", that would mean "stop" to me. I wouldn't even consider continuing the pursuit. That plays a huge part in why I think Zimmerman is a liar.

That said, the jury got it right; there wasn't evidence to convict.

As for the bullshiat about Zimmerman being "not white," It's just that- Bullshiat. He IS Hispanic... But Hispanic isn't a race, it's an ethnicity. There are white hispanics, black hispanics, and indian (Native American/ south american) Hispanics. Saying Zimmerman is not white, he's Hispanic is like saying I'm not white, I'm European.

And the bullshiat about "sizzurp" and whatever is just that: complete, fabricated bullshiat. Zimmerman MURDERED a teenager who felt threatened and tried to defend himself against some jackass who was harassing him while he was minding his own damn business.


I can't believe you were there, with an eyewitness account like that, and the prosecution didn't ask you to testify!  That would've been a slam-dunk conviction if only you had the guts to come forward with your story!

And if they'd put the black kid in the cop car, they'd cry that's racist to have the white people riding around in the sports car and the black kid in the back of a patrol car.

The only way those products could be non-racist is if all of the children were black.

If the black kid was in the cop car, he'd be in the back seat.

I mean, I'm not saying I want someone to murder him. I'm just searching for options where his name basically permanently exits the public lexicon. That is one way I can think of.

Perhaps his concern is stopping  Hi-Point C-9 9mm rounds, not high powered rifle rounds.  I suspect that the demographic of people owning firearms capable of firing 30-06 Springfield is not the group ol' George is concerned about.

NateAsbestos: offmymeds: Why his life is no longer "normal": He wears a bulletproof vest whenever he leaves his home-but he has no permanent abode. "I'm totally homeless." He hasn't had to collect welfare, and is willing to work as a cook if he has to, but he hasn't gotten to that point yet; he's being supported by his family.

On a tangential note: Why is "playing a small violin" a symbol of sarcastic empathy? I mean we all know what it means but how the hell did that meaning come about?


Good question, but I have no idea except maybe that said violin is so small that one might have some difficulty hearing it, unlike a normal sized violin. Can someone out there explain "the smallest violin" to NateAsbestos and I?

You fark. He shot someone who was pounding his head into the pavement. Even though you're a farkface I'd still support you if you shot someone who was pounding your head into the pavement. Would you support me if someone was pounding my head into the dust and I shot them? I hope so, so we can be BFF's.

Violins are an expression of love and care. And it would stand that the bigger the violin, the more you love and care about someone.
tut-interesno.org
Here we have the standard or 'normal' amount of love you can show someone.

www.viola-workshops.co.uk
Here is slighly more love and care.

lh3.ggpht.com
This is a much larger violin to show much greater love and care. In fact it's so much love, you can no longer get it all on your chin.


www.thebsm.net
And here we see the greatest amount of love you could ever have in a violin.

And the reverse it true. Anything smaller than a stardard violin shows *less* affection.

So when you play someone something like this:
chicos.laprensa.hn
You are showing your contempt for them. Which is saying something, because the time it takes to master a violin of that size, just to show your lack of care for someone, really lets them know you mean it.

machoprogrammer: MajorTubeSteak: ikanreed: No one should ever have to fear for their life from vigilante justice.

It's almost like we live in a world where actions have consequences.

Vigilante justice is really, really shiatty. We have a justice system and courts for a reason, and fark you for saying anyone deserves to get attacked by vigilantes.

The prosecution farked up and he is free. And you know what? He should be. Court of public opinion isn't a farking court.


Ahh, I see, so vigilante justice is ok when George Zimmerman is the one trolling the neighborhood playing cop, but not when the tables are turned.  Got it.

Regardless of whether the jury reached the correct conclusion under the law, legal culpability and moral culpability do not always coincide.  That's why the legislature has the power to change, repeal or pass new laws.  Clearly a large number of Americans don't think justice was served (however you choose to define it, as a matter of law or morally speaking)  Unfortunately it seems a natural consequence that vigilante action is contemplated when the formal justice system doesn't seem to be working.

Not that I think something like that should happen to GZ, not least because it sends a very bad message encouraging such behavior against other people, some of whom I might have more sympathy for.

He wouldn't have had to defend himself if he had left the farking kid alone, like the police told him to!

The 911 telephone operator saying "we don't need you to do that" = police telling you not to do it?


The 911 operator doesn't have the authority to tell you not to.  That's the cops' job.  They weren't there yet.

Vigilante justice is okay when it's done by the person being attacked, when the attack is in progress.

What part of "trolling the neighborhood playing cop" equates to self-defense?  I guess I am confused.  Or maybe you're trying to put words in my mouth.  The actual altercation that ended in Trayvon getting killed is a separate matter from Zim's cop-wannabe actions beforehand (regarding which we usually use the word "vigilante" when the actor is engaging a suspect who hasn't committed any crime against said actor, instead of merely reporting the suspicious person to police.  Look it up, Zim's actions are the very definition of "vigilante" in the Oxford English Dictionary- "A  vigilante is a member of a self-appointed group that undertakes law enforcement without legal authority."  So yes, words do have meaning.)

Following people is not enforcing any law. That would be apprehension at the least, more likely arrest and/or judgment.

In fact, following people may be harassment, as part of a larger pattern of aggression. gee.

While I do not disagree that harassment is a de facto function of our law enforcement agencies in this country, I hardly think a non-LEO following someone once forms a pattern of individual assertion of law enforcement against that person.

Mainly because harassment isn't the de jure penalty duly handed down as penalty for a given infraction, if nothing else.
