    Zimmerman’s expression after the verdict was read said a lot – no change of expression at all. He knows that regardless of the outcome, his life changed for the worst. Perhaps there is some justice in that. Hopefully no vigilantes try to take anything into their own hands, as it would make him a bigger martyr for the “stand your ground” laws than Martin became for the opposition of those laws.

    It has now become legal to purposefully pick a fight with someone, and then gun them down in cold blood, and justify it under the rubric of “self defense”.

    Be afraid, be very afraid.

    Sat on a jury where in a bar fight, a kid who outweighed his victim, had four friends to back him up, and was a champion wrestler, started the fight, and bit the victim’s nose off. He claimed self defense, the other jurors were ready to let him off, until I explained the law, the dangerous nature of the injury, and that it was DEFENSE testimony that proved the defendant started the fight intentionallly.


    We convicted the guy of assault, and he served five years in prison. (We also found out after the trial that this was the fourth time the guy had attacked and bitten people!)


    As to Florida, hunting season is open, bad laws make the streets MORE dangerous.

    @ReasonsVentriloquist

    True points, RV, but myself, I would feel safer in prison where, even though at least 2/3 of the inmates wanted my head, there is still some measure of control over the environment by prison officials. Yes, he is a dubious celebrity now, but now he will walk around for at least a few years worried that someone is out to get him. That is worse to me. And you know that if the next time he’s attacked and he defends himself, it will be a lot harder for his defense to get him off.
    Perhaps he and Casey Anthony can shack up together for a new reality series – “Somewhere in Siberia”.

    Electing a representative who will permit looneys to wander around with guns is Darwinism in its purest form.

    In Florida, if someone is following you, it’s safest to shoot them first — before they get a chance to shoot you in self defense.

    “In Florida, if someone is following you, it’s safest to shoot them first — before they get a chance to shoot you in self defense.”

    Yup. I doubt the folks supporting Zimmerman would see it the same way if Martin had been armed & shot the stranger who was following him in the dark.

    “Zimmerman acted in a reasonable manner…”

    Yeah, there’s nothing unreasonable about a guy chasing kids around in the dark.

    A most excellent comic. This is what people are trained to see and taught to believe. Fortunately, they cannot appreciate the irony, given that they will not rest until Zimmerman is found lying on the sidewalk for the whole world to see, having crossed the wrong suspect wandering about in a suspicious fashion on a dark night in a troubled neighborhood. Maybe it will turn out different this time.

    GOOGLE: “Trayvon Martin Crime”
    .
    You’ll get plenty of his “Side of the Story.”

    A 12 year old angelic waif he was not.

    Bors drew what he saw. He may not be looking at the same thing as are you. He may be looking at people who don’t know they are the joke, having lost all sense of humor. Don’t allow your emotional response to detract from your appreciation or upset your balance.

    The man had his day in court. His was found Not Guilty by a jury of his peers. Back in the day that was enough. None of us were in that courtroom. None of us saw the all the evidence and the specifics of the trial.


    Now, his life for a long time is over. Sure he’s free. Sort of. The courts of public opinion and political correctness have found him guilty with the sentence of death by harassment and shame. If not outright execution by someone wound up enough by the news coverage of it.


    Meanwhile, real injustices like Marissa Alexander who fired a warning shot and gets 20 years. Also, Justin Carter who says something inappropriate online and gets a nice prison holding time with a bail that exceeded most murderers. Thank God someone pitched in for his bail quickly. Not exactly the brightest thing for all people concerned, but the punishment should fit the crime.

    1.Martin wasn’t trespassing.
    2.Martin never ambushed Zimmerman.
    3.Martin’s fingerprints were never on the gun.
    4.How do you reach for a gun that was covered by the assailant’s (assuming Martin was the aggresor) leg?

    I would have run like an impala, as if the very police were at my heels. But I’m not thug tough, either.
