arentol: Handy to know that in Florida you can murder anyone you like just by making sure they get a few licks in on you before you pull your gun and shoot them.

The Prosecution should have gone for Assault with a Deadly Weapon in addition to Murder in this case. That would have brought in a section of Florida law that makes it clear that you can't claim self defense if you initiate a confrontation while armed. So then if the jury felt he was guilty of the assault charge they would also have to get him for murder as well.

Oh well, he will be farked in the civil case and his life is ruined now anyway. Still a HELL of a lot better off than Trayvon Martin, but at least he won't get a pass to an easy life.

Oh yeah? Please cite that statute then, because I bet you're wrong.

Sweaty Dynamite: So I am now learning from the Martin supporters and the prosecution that the proper term for 17 year old black males is either "child" or "boy." I thought that was supposed to be racist.

I think a 17-yr-old white boy would be referred to the same way.

tbeatty: Kind of hard to start a fight without the injuries associate with an aggressor.

There are many ways to start a fight without throwing the first punch.

Mrtraveler01: SevenizGud: Good to know that some hate-filled racist cannot attempt to murder someone by bashing their head in and have the victim also pay for self-defense through incarceration.

Justice will only be served if Zimmerman can successfully sue the estate of that racist for pain and suffering.

Wait...how was Martin racist?

He was black and we all know that makes it impossible for him to have been a racist.

dascott: The only winner here is the cop that made the decision not to charge Zigzag in the first place.

Honestly, the most powerful moment in the trial for me was when he lied to Z about having the whole incident on a cell phone video.

Because someone who murdered in cold blood a college-inspiring young kid who was just coming straight home after buying Skittles and an Arizona fruit that would be considered racist to describe drink would say "Thank god" to hearing that its all on video.

Even though the next question was struck from the records I'm sure the jurors thought the same thing.

Actually the lead investigator didn't. He never bought Zimmernan's story.

Guilty or not, I can see why The Men's Wearhouse fired the guy.
2013-07-14 12:02:57 AM  

WhyteRaven74: Demonrats: The similarities are that neither the rape victim or Zimmerman did anything illegal.

Except for the whole stalking someone thing, it's illegal everywhere to just follow someone for the purposes of intimidation. Also for all we know, and there's no way he'd fess up to it, he might have had his gun drawn the whole time. In which case Martin would've been well within his rights to stand his ground.

No.  There was ZERO evidence of anything you said.  Perhaps you need to look into your heart and ask why you have such prejudices toward groups of people.  Specifically "White Hispanics"

Post 1,000. That's the closest I've gotten. Ouch.
2013-07-14 12:02:59 AM  

Mentat: MelGoesOnTour: For what it's worth, if Martin was such an innocent angel you'd think he'd have said to Zimmerman something along the lines of "Hey, bro', it's all good and I'm just walking home so be cool" rather than decide to attack him outright. Zimmerman may have been guilty of being too suspicious but Martin pulled the first punch.

He didn't attack him outright.  He confronted Zimmerman in his car and Zimmerman wouldn't identify himself.  Trayvon then ran away and waited for Zimmerman to follow him, which he did.

So Zimmerman was essentially ambushed?!

Imaginativescreenname: For once and for all, ENOUGH with all this pancake talk. it's irrelevant and completely stupid, considering there are much more important matters at hand. Serious matters with equally serious consequences for each and every one of us. I am of course talking about FRENCH TOAST!  (i make mine with eggnog!)

My Mom served French Toast with low-fat berry yogurt and low-fat Cool Whip on top when I was growing up (apparently her Weight Watchers group told her that was healthier than butter/syrup).

It's AMAZING, and I highly recommend you try it.  Even if you think it's blasphemy, it's heavenly.

And if the syrup you're using has corn syrup as a main ingredient, your French Toast toppings are bad and you should feel bad.  I was going to say has to be 100% from a maple tree, but I've had good berry + maple syrup combos so I don't feel comfortable making that declaration.

I also worked the past 7 days straight, and only got 4 hours of sleep the last three nights.  I'd apologize for my rambling, rather pointless, and wanna be quotidian posts but the sleep deprivation is catching up so I don't give a f--k.
2013-07-14 12:03:18 AM  


Its farked up either way. Either the cops look like they're totally unprepared to protect innocent life and property if they don't come out in force.....or if they do its to keep the lower classes safely in line and make sure they don't have the ability to project their grievances in the public square. Also, I wonder if cops would like baby pancakes shaped like donuts.

I would like to know where 911 Buff is getting his info. Relying on solely the scanner is practically a real life version of the Telephone Game. One of the local TV stations here made total asses out of themselves when they relayed information they misheard on the scanner.

IE: If there is a violent protest at "Daley Pizza", first off, spell the name of the damn place correctly, and secondly, local Chicago media hasn't bothered to report it even though they are blocks away from it.

Tatsuma: Mentat: Hashtags don't constitute rioting.

Yeahh, and a stream of black people on twitter saying they should burn shiat down or kill Zimmerman certainly do not represent African-Americans as a whole either.


Did you just ignore the part where I said racists would have a field day with those tweets?

I usually try to ignore everything you say, but tonight's special.

But they can have whatever field day they want, because at the moment all they have are mean hashtags and unruly tampon mobs.
2013-07-14 12:03:37 AM  
I think my favorite thing about tonight will be if there is rioting. Not only will it be ridiculously ironic in context, but I'm sure the police will have orders to shut that shiat down with a vengeance if people try anything.
2013-07-14 12:03:38 AM  

IanMoone: I think IF they had actually gone for manslaughter or some kind of child abuse charges, then MAYBE they would have gotten a conviction. Telling the jury for weeks its' murder and then at the last minute, please find him guilty of at least manslaughter just didn't work out too well for them.

And it's a GOOD thing that we hold the prosecution to a high standard.  We have too many innocent people in jail as it is.

Fuggin Bizzy: What? He was clearly guilty, based on my own presupposition and the scattering of things I heard about the case on the Internet. This can't be right. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: trial-by-jury doesn't work.

Then charge the person with the right crime.

2013-07-14 12:03:59 AM  

Cataholic: iq_in_binary: Penman: iq_in_binary: Penman: Pincy: Penman: iq_in_binary: Because the asshole who thinks a gun in his pocket makes him a cop that decided you looked suspicious won't go to jail for shooting you after starting a fight with you and losing.

Every Trayvon cheerleader gets this wrong. Trayvon Martin started the fight.

So we have video of how this whole thing went down?

A 911 call and the injuries to Zimmerman.

Yes, a 911 call where Zimmerman admitted to pursuing Martin. Despite being told not to.

Active pursuit is threatening behavior. That's instigating a fight. Like I said, he was losing a fight he started, and like a little biatch pulled the gun because he was a sore loser.

You can turn around and violently attack someone because they're walking down the same street as you? "Yes Officer, I thought he was pursuing me, I just didn't like the way he looked, so I beat the shiat out of him"
In fact it seems like Trayvon might be the racist one, assuming that the Mexican guy is out to get him.

Ok, I'm heavy on the self defense opinion myself, I think we may have started off on the wrong foot.

Let me explain, I have insight into the legal system that you do not have. I was a legal investigator. A good one, I charged $150/hr for static surveillance and $225/hr plus the rates of other investigators helping me for dynamic surveillance. That's right, my job was following people.

Let's get something straight, following people in a menacing manner IS against the law. For us? Unless we we're in confined quarters like a bar or strip club or restaurant, the general rule is stay the fark outside of a 20-30 yard bubble. Why? Because any closer can be considered menacing. Investigators have been charged with intimidation, stalking, disorderly behavior, you name it for trailing people. Because guess what, constantly following people around IS generally considered in the court of law to be threatening behavior.

As a "legal professional" (don't kid yourself, I was ...

Prove it.
