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.

It's almost as if an MMA trained(yeah he got fat during trial) cop-wannabe stalking and killing an unarmed teenager and getting away with it brings righteous social fear, scorn, disdain, disgust, and hatred.

Who knew?  I may mark that one down.

Do...not.......stalk......wait wait...you're going too fast, professor!

Tatterdemalian: thamike: James10952001: 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.

And there's the difference between you and him.

Clearly we have a real live Professor Charles Xavier here.

/or someone that thinks he's a mind reader
//it doesn't matter if you want to get into that situation, when the situation comes looking for you
///and that happens exactly as many times as anyone chooses to attack other people just because they can

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

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.


Another way is to have his name legally changed to Wanker Fondleboob Weedenstein the First.

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.

[3.bp.blogspot.com image 266x285]

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.

/because people like you get confused easily, though, we usually use the words "self defense" instead of "vigilante justice"

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.

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.
