The law says that he didn't have to be in a fatal situation .. just that he had to believe the situation could be fatal. He had to fear or believe his life was in danger. It didn't actually have to be. Is that the kind of 'fear' that you are talking about?


if he feared his life was in danger, why did he get out of his vehicle, even after the police ordered him to stay in it. he had a loaded gun, he assumed TM was criminal because he was black, and he wanted to physically confront TM. there is no fear, no stand your ground, no self defense, he was out to show this n****r who was boss, and he succeeded.


Race baiting




No proof racism played a role.

A reporter from the courtroom says that when the judge read asked them their questions for today, the jurors appeared anxious to get this 'over with'...

as if they are pretty much made up in vote, and probably just gonna go back there to make sure everyone is on board.

I bet they come out within the hour.

(Here we go again)....

Because he didn't fear his life was in danger when he got out of the car. It wasn't until Trayvon was on top of him that he felt this fear; that's why he shot him....(duhhh)

If you pay attention to posts from the members, you'll find that ButterCookie is a self described Black woman. (I hate that term, I prefer to think of her as a American or better yet a human being)

But as long as people continue to be fixated upon race...T&C forbids me.

Thanks


They have decided to resort to attacking the person, not the argument, as people naturally do when they CAN'T attack the argument.

Back to the verdict watch...

He obviously didn't feel his life was in danger until he pulled the trigger. He didnt pull the trigger when he got out of his truck, He pulled the trigger with TM sitting on top of him "ground and pounding" him.

Disingenuous argument.

A little breaking news:

In a breaking development, the Special Prosecutor’s Office of Angela Corey has fired the IT specialist who blew the whistle on the prosecution’s concealment of evidence: State Attorney Angela Corey fired her office information technology director Friday afte testified last month about being concerned prosecutors did not turn over .information George Zimmerman’s defense team in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. On the same day attorneys finished their closing arguments in that nationally watche trial, a state attorney investigator went to B Kruidbos’ home about 7:30 a.m. to hand-deliver a letter stating Kruidbos “can never again be trusted to step foot in this office.” (WAJ adds) This has been a dirty prosecution in so many ways, so no one should be surprised that as soon as the jury went into deliberations the retaliation (began - I missed the last sentence when copying and pasting, and I'm on my phone so it's hard to cut and paste)

story

This country does not treat whistle blower heroes as they should be treated.

I've not posted much on this topic for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, I'm not sure what to add that hasn't already been said.

Sufficed to say, I can only offer my opinions and observations on the trial and related issues.

This is a trial of opinions. Not fact.

In Zimmerman's opinion, his life was in danger.
The juror's opinions will determine his fate.
Most have already determined his fate in their own opinion.
Politicians and their pundits have made this a right vs. left instead of a right vs. wrong.

(Notice how we are not talking about Egypt, high unemployment, Berneke agreeing to continue pumping money into the market, Obamacare, stagnant economies, or war?)

LOLOLOL

It actually happened and was in the news yesterday. The black guy got off on self defense. I will see if I can find the story.

ok....can't wait for some black guy to shoot some 17 year old white kid on a street at night, and claim he was fearful for his life and that's why he shot him.


Why are you detrmined to bring race in to this?

What cant it it just be a case of one person shotting another? Why does it have to be a white guy shooting a black? Both are people why does colour have to be involved in this

Yep. I heard that story yesterday too.

They are constantly trying to implement 'race' as the factor around this incident, which is incorrect. They ignore the facts, and react off of racially-motivated emotion.

This person cannot be trusted because he acted ethically in showing those charged with upholding the law acted unethically. Sounds about right for the USA.


Edit:

Sir, you are to honest to be working in our legal system.

Oh they REALLY don't want us talking about Egypt because they are refusing to call it a coup so they can still send billions of our dollars to a leaderless country in turmoils. ALSO Obama is STILL sending their F16 to them. So if al qeada or an stremists group gets it.. they will have F16's so they can bomb whoever they want. I mean SERIOUSLY!

And now back to topic.

THIS is really big. It should be watched really carefully. The corruption revolving around this case by the prosecution and the state officials in Florida are coming to light. GOOD FIND!

The talking heads are naming the biggest blunders of both teams, and of course they are saying the biggest blunder from the Defense was the 'knock-knock' joke.

Defense: "Knock-knock. Who's there? George Zimmerman. George Zimmerman who? Congratulations- you are on the jury."

Actually, I understand it. They were VERY simply saying to not bring in any pre-concieved notions about this case.

I liked it.

I hope you are right. I hope the rational jurors were able to calm down the emotional ones and get them to understand the law. Perhaps a good nights sleep did them some good. Everything fresh in the morning.

Side note ... my 'guess' was Sunday. I guess we'll see ...
