BraveNewCheneyWorld: The more you eat the more you fart: I think one thing is damn clear at this point: Trayvon wasnt the innocent little angel his parents and media tried to pretend he was....in fact quite the opposite..he was a little thug on his way to being a bigger thug.Also, trayvon used racial epithets just like GZ did...bit i guess thats pointless.What racial epithet did GZ use? As far as I've heard, only TM used one.
neversubmit: White people haven't rioted since the 20's.
Tatsuma: Actually as far as we know, Zimmerman didn't use racial epithets.
BraveNewCheneyWorld: Because shooting the person who's punching your head into concrete makes you a vigilante..
stellarossa: I agree; the uncle came across as extremely credible & inscrutable.
The more you eat the more you fart: I stand corrected.
stellarossa: I agree; the uncle came across as extremely credible & inscrutable.The chinaman is not
ChaosStar: You somehow have it in your head that if GZ pulled his weapon in response to the lethal force used against him having him fearing for his life and the weapon misfired, Martin would be justified in killing GZ. This is false.
ChaosStar: A trial is not an investigation, the investigation comes before the trial, If the investigation finds your claim of self defense to be true, you don't go to trial (you're not supposed to anyway). If they do, they recommend charges, charges are filed, the jury decides your guilt on those charges.I really can't spell it out any clearer.
ELKAY: I really hope GZ doesn't get off. The last thing we need in this country is a bunch of a$$hole vigilante's thinking they now have a hunting license for black teenagers.He clearly did not act as a reasonable or responsible person that night and deserves a manslaughter charge.
Mid_mo_mad_man: For those out there still think Zimmerman is angry bigot hunting black young men heres a question.If you beleave the states case is so solid why wouldn't a grand jury indite him?
Smackledorfer: ChaosStar: No, most of the time I was fighting in a bar because it was my job to eject them and they decided to take the matter physical.Oh boy! Its ITG time everybody!ChaosStar: You're confusing consensual activity with illegal attacks, you said it yourself "play fights".No, I'm not. I pointed out that even in a play fight things can get dangerous quickly, which makes your claim that real fights and illegal assaults can so easily be prevented from spilling into the realm of serious bodily harm (yea that guy was beating the shiat out of me, but I didn't bump into any concrete so it's cool) was absolutely ridiculous.
doczoidberg: This whole case has given me an idea for my next screenplay.It's called "Yahoo with a Gun." It will be about a neighborhood watch volunteer who breaks up a drug ring, bumbling his way through the entire farcical story.Think "Paul Blart," but darker.
Cletus C.: What a load of carp. Zimmerman was "led" by Martin. He was stalking him. That is creepy.
Jake Havechek: It's been well established that Zimmerman is a farking loser, but the prosecution needs to do better.
Xcott: How did he end up in that situation in the first place? Because he was a vigilante. He was supposed to call the cops and then stay in his car playing Angry Birds; instead, he decided to act like a cop, go after and confront the kid and get into a fight with him. That's a pretty clear-cut case of taking the law into your own hands.
limeyfellow: What I yet to see though is why stand your ground laws don't apply to Trayvon Martin.
Facetious_Speciest: Xcott...instead, he decided to act like a cop, go after and confront the kid and get into a fight with him.There's nothing to suggest Zimmerman confronted Martin. Martin's friend Jeantel said Martin confronted him.
Tatsuma: He already has it in the bag
jaybeezey: ELKAY: I really hope GZ doesn't get off. The last thing we need in this country is a bunch of a$$hole vigilante's thinking they now have a hunting license for black teenagers.He clearly did not act as a reasonable or responsible person that night and deserves a manslaughter charge.Right? Because it's such a prevalent attitude now. I'd hate for it to get bolstered.Most everyone i know is just chomping at the bit to have his/her life turned inside out on national TV so they can smoke some kid.Don't live in fear and hate and everything will be OK.
Tatsuma: Yeah there is just no way Zimmerman is going on the stand, why would he? He already has it in the bag, and wins nothing from going on the stand and could lose everything if the prosecution trips him up over bullshiat.
The Muthaship: nekom: The whole situation just sucks for all involvedAgreed.
ELKAY: Would you feels safe if George Zimmerman lived in your neighborhood?
Hobodeluxe: Nah George will get rich
Popcorn Johnny: The judge didn't grant the defense motion to throw out the case, so Zimmerman must be guilty. That's what Team Trayvon has been rolling with on Facebook and other sites. Never mind the fact that judges never grant a motion to dismiss after hearing half the case.
Radioactive Ass: LasersHurt: There's also no evidence to support that he's an innocent man who was attacked and had to defend himself. It's just that he's the only one alive to tell his side.Well aside from Good's and W#8's testimony that is.
Xcott: BraveNewCheneyWorld: Because shooting the person who's punching your head into concrete makes you a vigilante..Yes, that makes him a vigilante---because his head was being punched into the concrete.How did he end up in that situation in the first place? Because he was a vigilante. He was supposed to call the cops and then stay in his car playing Angry Birds; instead, he decided to act like a cop, go after and confront the kid and get into a fight with him. That's a pretty clear-cut case of taking the law into your own hands.
HAMMERTOE: Cletus C.: What a load of carp. Zimmerman was "led" by Martin. He was stalking him. That is creepy.1) Zimmerman was following Martin, making no attempt to be stealthy, also making no attempt to confront him; just observe him until the authorities arrived.2) Martin knew Zimmerman was following him. Martin chose where to go. Martin chose to lead Zimmerman into the dark back-alley where the confrontation and altercation took place,. rather than let Zimmerman know where he was going. (Where to send the po-po.). Zimmerman followed.You can't change the facts.
