    Sorry, Pat. It’s my understanding that “stand your ground” was not used as a defense.

    People are calling and doing a lot of bad things to Zimmerman. So far the President got involved saying “If I had a son he would look like Travon”, the Justice Department helped in a rally against Zimmerman, then they tagged on that Manslaughter charge at the last minute of the trial and now the Civil Rights investigation. Holder should be careful he will hang himself; Zimmerman might just launch his own Civil Rights suit against the Government.

    True, or your opponent’s last, and the real question is deciding when your opponent SHOULD be your opponent……

    Why do all these people who point to our justice system as the best in the world refuse to accept a verdict they don’t agree with?

    The best system in the world would not allow the case to be tried in the media before a verdict is reached.

    Too bad the public doesn’t realize the two “innocent” items found on TM—Skittles & Arizona Iced Tea—are key ingredients in cutting an illegal street drug called “Lean”.

    All the toons I’ve seen so far on the Zimmerman trial today are so over-the-top as to be offensive and counter-productive. What a waste of energy

    Perhaps Pat would feel differently if he were lying on the ground, with someone bigger, stronger, and younger on top of him beating him the face and breaking his nose. As tragic as it was, Trayvon was no angel. Read his tweets. Read about his fight club you tube videos ( they’ve been removed so you can no longer view them). Then start getting outraged at the number of young black men who die every day at the hands of other young black men.

    Even though the phrase “Stand your ground” was not used by the defenseduring the trail, when it came to describing why George Zimmerman shot Travon Martin, the terms “in fear of his life” and “defending himself” were used. And, ultimately, I believe, that is the reason why the jury found G. Zimmerman not guilty. The conclusion is: If you shoot someone because you are in “fear of your life” that is not far different from “stand your ground” as they both amount to the same justification. That is the main reason why home owners are found not guilty by reason of “self defense” when they shoot someone who breaks into their homes or attacks them on the street. In the end, racism played no part in this incident.

    If that were true than Marissa Alexander wouldn’t have been given 20 years for firing a warning shot.

    @William Bednar

    Absolutely correct sir! It was a self defense claim that ultimately won the day largely in part of shady police work and a prosecution not willing to prosecute.

    yes anytime a defendant gets off it is because of “shady police work and a prosecution not willing to prosecute.”
