Boojum2k: The Muthaship: He's immune from civil liability if they found him not guilty based on self defense.That won't stop that moron Crump from filing though.How the hell did Crump become a lawyer anyway?
sheep snorter: So according to the jury's moronic result of the case...... We can get out of our cars and stalk and then murder a black kid because he looked suspicious./Providing you are white enough, that is.//Oh and state that when you confronted him, the kid tried to stand his ground to get your cracker ass from stalking him.//But we all know that stand your ground is only for frightened paranoid loser white people to use.
Slaxl: Bigdogdaddy: He was found not guilty. I didn't agree with it, but that's the way our system works.But he killed him in self defence, so not guilty on those grounds makes perfect sense. Doesn't it? Or is it more that you would say that killing in self defence is still killing and thus he should have gone to jail anyway?Being foreign I haven't paid close attention to this case, so please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems pretty clear he was being assaulted, and probably a few head bashes on the pavement away from death himself, and he shot the guy. Does it really matter that he called the police to report him looking suspicious? That doesn't make him a racist, if anything given Martin's reaction it makes him perceptive.Now, if Zimmerman had harrassed Martin, to the point where he went over and instigated the fight which he ended up losing and having to use his gun then exhoneration would be clearly wrong, but that would have come out in court if it were the case. So it seems to me rather clear, and fair, that Zimmerman was cleared, and why. Am I missing key facts?
StoPPeRmobile: Otto_E_Rodika: [puu.sh image 688x609]Profiling is bad and if you do it you should feel bad.Where the last 1.7%?
HotWingConspiracy: Did I go after the Eskimos?
mgshamster: I've been told there would be riots after Z was found not guilty. Where are the riots?
BravadoGT: Zimmerman robbed America of a great person--right after he was done with getting high, burglarizing houses and picking fights with strangers, he was all set to be the next W.E.B. Dubois
TheDumbBlonde: StoPPeRmobile: liquidpoo: Sure is a lot of hate on "white people" in here. Good thing it's not racist if it's against "white people."Race plus power equals racism.That sounds like something you heard in Sociology course. Good parrot. Want a cracker?
OgreMagi: varmitydog: [moonbattery.com image 500x500]The dude made saint faster than the pope. But what were his miracles?He turned a mixed race man into a white supremest.That's one. We need two more.
StoPPeRmobile: RockChalkH1N1: Zimmerman is white?As white as Jesus.
RockChalkH1N1: Zimmerman is white?
HotWingConspiracy: That's a really disgusting smear against Zimmerman, are you racist against hispanics?
vartian: jehovahs witness protection: Race baiters hitting up race baiters to race bait.You are a callous idiot every other day so I guess today is just par for the course.That said, I won't sign it either - killing someone is a crime, but I don't see how constitutional rights factor in here. Zimmerman did murder Trayvon due to paranoia and a sense of entitlement, and he is certainly a racist, but that is not clear enough to take a second shot at him for murder charges. Sue the fark out of him in civil court to the point where his every waking moment is obsessed with the amount he has to pay, sure, but I don't see how we can justify an end run at double jeopardy.We'll just have to be content that a miserable coward who stalked and shot a tenager will be unable to live the rest of his life normally. If we are lucky, he'll also be doing it broke.
OgreMagi: Let's repeat our grade school civics lesson since a lot of people seem to have forgotten the basics.We are not a democracy. We are a constitutional republic.Democracy is a lynch mob.
HotWingConspiracy: Popcorn Johnny: HotWingConspiracy: But it looks like your grand predictions of a race war aren't really panning out. Poor guy, you bought all of that ammo.I never predicted a race war and don't own guns. As for riots, this is far from over.Dude I get it, you see black people as a monolith that think like animals with no self control or sense of propriety.

Rapmaster2000: Treygreen13: A petition for mob justice? Sign me up. I love a justice system based on popular opinion.I prefer a system based on internet polls.
indylaw: hasty ambush: [25.media.tumblr.com image 500x317]Have there been riots in the last 24 hours?
ObnoxiousLonghorn: why did crump tell the media it was ice tea instead of watermelon juice??because he knew that every hood rat out there would know what the watermelon juice and skittles were for.it was 2 of the ingredients to make purple drank, all trayvon had to do was add DXM, (Dextromethorphan ) the drink is also called "lean" in some hoods.purple drank has a PCP like effect on a person.trayvon's twitter account talks about drinking it all the time.this is also why the autopsy showed liver damage on trayvon at such young age.apparently the skittles and watermelon juice were not so innocent after all
gfid: doyner: gfid: This is very similar except in this case it's not a burglar it's someone who committed assault and instead of just getting hurt he got shot dead so the victim could protect himself.There are more punctuation marks than just periods out there. Get to know them.Fark off!How's that?
Lionel Mandrake: varmitydog: [moonbattery.com image 500x500]The dude made saint faster than the pope. But what were his miracles?A lot of people whose side "won" seem surprisingly butthurt today.
the_end_is_rear: Funny how if the races in this story was reversed it would have been all over the news.http://www.cnn.com/2013/03/22/us/georgia-baby-killed
Nabb1: vartian: Nabb1:People need to move on.He'll get right on that.If he'd have just gone home instead of deciding to make a fuss, he'd be alive. He chose poorly.
Lionel Mandrake: BravadoGT: Zimmerman robbed America of a great person--right after he was done with getting high, burglarizing houses and picking fights with strangers, he was all set to be the next W.E.B. DuboisYes, 17 years was plenty of time for this guy to prove worthy of life.
vartian: BravadoGT: He was a thug who sucker punched another man and tried to do worse. He was bangin', just like his old man, "Crippin All Time"fark you, you disgusting piece of shiat.

cptjeff: BravadoGT: Zimmerman robbed America of a great person--right after he was done with getting high, burglarizing houses and picking fights with strangers, he was all set to be the next W.E.B. DuboisAnd people wonder why everybody thinks Zimmerman's defenders are racists.
Autarky: did not know that brown on black racism even existed....
The Muthaship: He's immune from civil liability if they found him not guilty based on self defense.That won't stop that moron Crump from filing though.
Nabb1: The FBI already looked into this in 2012 and found no evidence of racial bias on Zimmerman's part,
doglover: Lionel Mandrake: people who cheered Ronald Goldman's family for their persistenceWho were these people?
Lionel Mandrake: Adolf Oliver Nipples: Is this how it's gonna be? Just keep throwing charges at him until something sticks?Probably. And the people who cheered Ronald Goldman's family for their persistence will shiat all over the Martin family.
Fark It: So, you think people who are not guilty due to self-defense should be sued by their attackers? Really?
Boojum2k: vartian: Sue the fark out of him in civil courtVery likely not, the self-defense laws in Florida not only prohibit civil cases against someone found not guilty by self-defense, they put all court costs, attorney fees, etc onto the filing party.
