Richard Jewell anyone?
I don’t think these two cases are similar at all. Richard Jewell was not involved AT ALL. Zimmerman was very involved regardless of how it turns out.
“I am Spartacus!”
I don’t care what he says or thinks.

What I was referring to is the fact the media decided that Jewell was guilty and hounded him until it was finally proven he wasn't involved. In Zimmerman's case, they've done the same thing, and you can bet they'll hound him to death, quite probably a literal event.
Perry Mason could have sorted all this out...
>> yet get a multi-million dollar lawsuit against him
3 problems with that fantasy.
1) The prosecution’s case has been a DISASTER. They HAVE no evidence against Z, and the witnesses “against” him corroborate his story. Unlike in OJ’s trial, where it was pretty clear the prosecution had a case but not an airtight one. I don’t think the race whores would necessarily prevail in a suit.
2) If he’s acquitted, Zimmerman has some recourse himself against Crump and his Scheme Team for fraud that led to wrongful prosecution. Z also has some potential for lawsuits against various media and others involved in the railroading attempt.
2) Right now, Z ain’t GOT no “million dollars”. Unless you’re talking about his legal debts. What are they going to do if they win? Kill him and his wife and part them out for their organs?
42 U.S.C. § 1983
Every person who under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, Suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer’s judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable.
So far, I like your assessment best.

We get as much as we decide to get. The unfiltered information is available. It;s clear from your post you have not availed yourself of the free access to unfiltered information about this case.
-- The sad thing in all of this is that Zimmerman started the train rolling by his actions. --
Yes, he got out of his truck, and followed a person he could not see (Martin had lost him). Later, Martin approached Zimmerman. Clearly, Zimmerman's fault.
-- ... based on what Zimmerman has described, Trayvon was doing nothing suspicious in my book. --
Zimmerman described a person who was obviously not Frank Taffee, standing in Frank Taffee's front yard (20 feet from the sidewalk) and looking at Frank Taffee's house. Frank Taffee's house had been burglarized in the past two month, if I have that detail correct.
-- it does not negate the fact that a teenage walking home from a 7-11 was killed for absolutely no good reason. --
Lets you volunteer to take a beating from somebody who can physically overpower you. You don;t get to pick the time or place. Nobody will come to your assistance. You are forbidden from defending yourself. Sounds fair to me, and it'll be your fault to boot.
Yes he was. He noticed the package and tried to get people away. He should have just left the scene at a normal walking pace, then he wouldn't have had any trouble with the law.
He will push for some kind of Federal Civil Rights indictment.
My wife, who is a legal secretary in a law office heard this from a *woman of color* as she walked in their office just a month ago: “I needs to see an eternity!” About a year ago, a chinese man who was not proficient in our language, said: “I need open suitcase”, in that we was opening both a suit and a case, the guy was closer to using correct English than to the *woman of color* who was born in this country.
As for Zero... I’m done with him and I care not. I already know what the outcome to all this is, and this trial is just an indicator to the larger crisis coming. We have 2 scenarios, we become Europe, or we crash and civil war erupts. The riots, and there will be riots if he is not convicted, will be a skirmish.
Why does anyone fear riots? The police are going to be out full force after the verdict. There’s going to be rioting at some point anyway, better it be when the police are ready....and stop it from spreading.
Martin was looking into windows. Zimmerman was keeping an eye on him in case he broke into one of the townhomes.
The problem in this crime invested country is there aren’t more Zimmermans. Martin was a thug and got what was coming to him. I believe he saw Zimmerman’s gun. Most people would have jumped up and run like hell. Martin tried to get it. What was he going to do with it?
Put him the park.

America is a divided & conquered Idiocracy. We are now Balkanized MORE than the Balkans. The future of the Founders' America is bleak...
Outside Independence Hall when the Constitutional Convention of 1787 ended, Mrs. Powell of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin:
"Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, "A republic, if you can keep it."
He needs to follow Emanuel Cleaver’s lead: When mobs were threatening to torch the Kansas City Country Club Plaza, Cleaver told them they did not need to do that. A real leader came out in Emanuel Cleaver that day and he averted disaster.
A real leader would do the same upon either an acquittal or a conviction. Once the legal system has addressed an issue, the only appropriate response is that justice was done, continue to legally advocate because, although it may take time, the truth will out and if something can’t stand, it will ultimately fall.
The case was not about Zimmerman, but an opportunity to go after guns and castle laws. Barry Sotero doesn’t care about trade marked Travon or George. He wants optics to grease the skids for more tyranny. If he does anything it will be to turn a blind eye to riots and perhaps say that the police acted stupidly against the black freedom rally.
As usual, your comments are right on the money. Not to mention, you also always have the best memes on the forum. Keep ‘em coming!
