Just FYI under Florida law if a civil case is brought against GZ by TM's parents and they lose they have to cover all court cost, including GZ's lawyers fees.

I know the standards of proving wrongful death are much lower than a criminal murder case, but if GZ keeps MoM and West - I am sure their fees are hefty.

As I was saying in the other thread, to add insult to injury, he is allowed to get his gun back. Here's the link

At this moment in time I dont think Zimmerman has any clue what he wants to do with the rest of his life so I take this "close friend" with a grain of salt. Seriously the media needs to stop.

Like I said in the other thread, asking nicely will not get you anything. Freedom was not handed over, it was TAKEN. Rights were not handed out, they were taken. Justice has to be TAKEN. It is not given. Maybe bleeding heart liberal wanna-bes may believe otherwise to be true but if you look throughout history, it tells the complete opposite.

You want a nice thread where everybody cries "oh, the horror" and talk about what a shame and a tragedy it is. Well, since you are a mod, you can edit and edit and force that illusion if you want to. The TRUTH is there are a lot of people that want his head. He is a murderer regardless of what a bunch of papers say. When you shoot someone and they die, you are a killer. PERIOD. You can dress it up however and play semantics but it is exactly what it is.

The truth is there are a lot of people who are tired of the Trayvon incidents. Zimmerman's crimes will not go unanswered. Him getting away means that its open season on black people and there are a lot of black people who are not willing to roll over and die so easily.

Law school?

A weed that is allowed to grow breeds other weeds and ruins a garden.

I highly doubt there is law school in his future, but I suspect he has a lesson or two coming.

Why so he could kill more children? He is a danger to society. He should not be allowed to carry a gun or be near black children period. He is a monster.

Only...why should the sate buy him a new gun? They didn't damage the one that went into evidence. They returned it to him as they got it.

GZ is not formerly educated. First he'd have to finish his associates degree and then get an undergraduate degree of some kind with the grades to qualify for law school.

This story is untrue.

I just finished catching up on everyones thoughts on the verdict. I know many of you have moved on from the verdict decision but I just have to ask.... Does any of you think politics played a role in this? In other words, was this all a big, Dog & Pony Show? Going all the way back to the beginning with Angela Corey taking the case over, to the press conference, the trial and the closing press conference Saturday night. Call me cynical but it all seems like a State going through the motions to placate or appease the outrage in Florida and throughout the United States. Now, it supposed to seem as if the Sanford Police Department was vindicated in not arresting GZ in the first place and this is all Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Ben Crump's fault.

-

Here's one question that was never answered in the trial: Why was former Det. Chris Serino never asked about the affadavit he wrote early on in his investigation suggesting that GZ gets arrested for manslaughter? I could be wrong but I do not recall the State Prosecution ever asking about it. Somebody got to Serino and told him if he wants to keep a job in law enforcement he better play ball for the Defense. Hence, his testimony that contradicted his own investigation in favor of the Defense. He was far too skeptical in his investigation to get on the witness stand and he believes GZ was telling the truth.

I thought about that too. Something was very odd about the whole trial. I kept thinking how could the Presecution be so incompetent? Why weren't they objecting more? Why didn't they ask Serino about his report that GZ might have committed manslaughter?

I do believe that GZ was charged with 2nd degree murder under public pressure.

All it would take is for one black nationalist to go rogue and take matters into his/her own hand, Charles Bronson's Death Wish style, and all hell will definitely break loose in Florida then. It's scary just think about it. This is 2013 C.E. and Florida could go 1953-63 at any time.

In some ways yes. I'm not exactly sure about political, but it's no secret that they were pressured to charge Zimmerman.

You don't sound cynical in regards to your views about the State. A lot of people who watched the entire trial have those same feelings. Like I mentioned in the other thread, there were many missed opportunities by the prosecution. It was almost as if they gave up. Hell half of their own witnesses were more beneficial to the defense. I know that this case was mainly circumstantial as there were no witnesses and prosecutors have to work with what they have, but I find it hard to believe that after interviewing all of those witnesses at not know the possible outcome.

That's just it...Florida is still stuck in that 1953-1963 mentality, but this is a different day, and most Blacks today, especially the younger ones, have a totally different mentality than Blacks in that era. The only way Florida would change their gun laws is if more Blacks applied for legal gun ownership, then you will see a sudden change in the law. Sad to say, but Florida is not the only state these days with that 1953-1963 mentality. It seems to be spreading.

Just found out that both ALEC and the NRA got Stand Your Ground passed. The fucking law needs to be nixed.

The protest today is going to close down the Capital in Tallahassee. Young people are not taking it any more. You are either with us or with Zimmerman the wannabee white racist.

Obama can kiss my ass with his "be calm" shit. We will be calm and no, we will not accept the verdict and fuck the rule of law, there is no rule of law.

You are not off the hook either: The State itself is George Zimmerman on acid.

Snowden is another victim of the system. Drones should now be nicknamed Zimmerman killbots.

I'm surprised to see Tallahasseans coming out in protest. They have a lot of citizens there that were afraid to speak out during the 90s, against racial injustices, but I think a lot of the students from FAMU and FSU who come from all over, are the inspiration, encouragement behind many Tallahassee residents, coming out to protest against social injustices. I have to say it's about time though. They can't allow old, southern racist ideology/beliefs to continue infecting the minds of youth, and things can only change when members of every racial/religious/gender/ethnic background come out together and demand and protest for change.

2freaky, honestly, I don't think GZ has a KKK mentality. Race is a factor indeed, but I wouldn't say he's a racist. He is prejudice against urban black youth, but i don't see him hating a black man in a suit and thinking 'these assholes always get away with it' or 'he's looks like he's up to no good'. But on the same level, I don't think he thinks the same thing of a white kid with a hoodie with hands in his pocket. This about prejudices and acting upon them, emboldened by the possesion of a gun. Had he not had that gun, he wouldn't have gotten out of the car. That gun was the equalizer for any situation he would potentially get into. This is something all gun owners share. A sense of strength and empowerment.

Not directed specifically towards you, but really, do Black youths now not have the freedom to dress like everyone else, breathe freely and walk the streets like any other human being, just because of who they are and based on the insecurities of racists? When someone holds racist beliefs of another group, it doesn't matter what they're wearing, because those racist suspicions will still be there. It's not like one Black person in a suit and one in a hoodie will change skin color overnight. Black children shouldn't be in fear of dressing comfortably when they go outside, because of some insecure, racists' problem with Black people all over the world existing, and the right to share space with other human beings on this earth.

Point is, like it or not, racists against African-Americans will have to get used to the fact, that Black people, as a whole, are on this earth to stay, and that every human being will have to get used to the fact that they come from the same human group as every, single Black person on this earth...whether they want to hear that truth or not, and there is nothing anyone can do to change that.

You know, I believe this to. If the state had successfully prosecuted GZ, it calls into question Florida Gun laws and unfortunately the gun is way more important to American Society than a child disbelief I think they didn't put full force and weight into it for this exact reason.

I think the real problem is yeah prejudice is still around and will be around, for a long time. As long as there is fear-driven ideology about different races and stereotypes are welcome, we'lll never see ppl for who they are, just what they 'represent' (which is never accurate). Latinos are also stigmatized with the 'presumed guilty first' thinking. But what's thrown into the mix is now guns are allowed on the street, not just in the home or at the range, but in public. So ppl who are prejudice, have the freedom to act on it and claim self-defence when things go bad. That's a dangerous mix. Because say what you will about GZ calling in TM to the police, okay, that's bad. But if there was no gun involved, he wouldn't have gotten out of that car. I think that's the real issue, these stand your ground laws, these concealed weapon permits give trouble-making idiots the right to take the law into their own hands. I think thats the real problem, and it's setting us back 50 years.
