Re: Zimmerman

I think the following conversation with the prosecutor and state attorney is the most telling and disgusting statement about this whole affair. "Well, the truth came out in the form of every bit evidence and physical evidence and testimony that we were allowed to put on under our rules of evidence,"...

Re: Zimmerman

If you are still arguing the merits of a case that the jury already decided then you are retarded. I watched nearly every minute of testimony. The prosecution had no case. Is Zimmerman a dumbass? Yes. Is that against the law? No. Is the law in Florida that allowed this stupid? Yes. As to racism, app...

Todays defense witness, Mr. Root, was incredibly damaging to the prosecution. I believe this case to be all but over.

Re: Zimmerman

The more I read about the case the more it seems like Zimmerman was a mall ninja and Martin was a punk kid. There's no martyr in any of it. AT LAST!

Re: Zimmerman

This is a real, racial issue. It's another example, in a sea of examples, of how African-Americans are presumed guilty until proven innocent and that black life isn't valued as highly as a white person's. There is no position that can be taken in which the assertion that the incident was racially m...

Re: Zimmerman

It depends on how Zimmerman approached Martin - If he acted in such a way to present an imminent threat, that's assault. Correct, though there has been no evidence presented so far that would indicate that Zimmerman approached Martin in this manner if he approached him at all. It is still incumbent...

Re: Zimmerman

it was because and only because Zimmerman was literally stalking him. You don't get to terrorize someone to the point they feel they have to defend themselves and then claim self-defense when you kill them. This is the misguided premise that most people use to defend Trayvon Martin. As long as it w...

Re: Big Brother Is Listening...

How did this happen? Who is to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terr...

Re: Oh for eff's sake, what next

The fundamental problem is that the underlying law is bullshit, and requires subjective value calls - not woe is me persecution on either side. Crocodile tears over not liking the value calls means its time to change the law to something that works. This is one of the worst justifications for viola...

Re: Shooting at Elementary School (est 27 dead)

I am a lifetime NRA member and avid gun collector. I own about $80,000 in various firearms.

I am surrendering every firearm.

Modern weapons I will give to the police.

Antiques I am donating to the Stuhr Museum.

Enough is enough. We cannot accept the status quo. I will not be part of the problem.

Re: Puerto Rico votes for US Statehood

You think the US would accept more states? I'm not saying it would be a bad thing (I think it would be awesome), but just wondering...
