Trayvon Martin shooting: Teen threatens 'mass homicide' on Twitter if George Zimmerman is acquitted
The New York Daily News ^ | July 13, 2013 | Beth Stebner

Posted on 07/13/2013 4:07:57 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

A Zion, Illinois teen known was slapped with felony charges after allegedly saying he'd 'cause a mass homicide' at his high school should George Zimmerman be acquitted.

While six women are deliberating the fate of George Zimmerman behind closed doors, the rest of the world waits with bated breath.

But across the country, others are loudly — and sometimes violently — voicing their opinions on what should happen to the former Neighborhood Watch captain who is charged with the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

An anonymous YouTube user posted a rant to the site on Friday saying that Zimmerman should have stayed home and watched Disney rather than go out with a gun.

One Chicago-area 15-year-old wrote on Twitter Friday: "If Zimmerman free imam shoot everybody in Zion causing a mass homicide, and ill get away wit it just like Zimmerman (sic)" read the tweet from @Mark12394995.

The News Sun-Times reports that the tweet from the Zion-Benton Township High School sophomore was later deleted, but not before several people reported the student to the FBI.....

Hasn’t some kid been in jail since April in Texas for some stupid, less explosive and direct comment???? (He was just released because a donor paid the bail his family could not afford.)

How do you like the jury requested instructions on manslaughter? This guy is screwed. I bet my brother $100 he will be convicted when this thing all started. We no longer live in a constitutional republic, we live under a mobocracy with the Treason party playing the mob like puppets.

And there is a kid sitting in a Texas jail because he jokingly mentioned that he was going to cause mass death, and he may not get out.

I think they are about to have a hung jury. Can just one woman with two brain cells to work together figure out the prosecution proved NOTHING and foil the 5 who probably bought the touchy, feely, "inocent child" theme of the prosecution? I hope so!

..... Don't think we really have to worry about mass homicide and other such peaceful tolerant events from the enlightened ones cuz it looks like Zimmerman will be spending at least the next 20 years in prison for Manslaughter.

.... And.... In the mean time another half dozen or so black teens will die at the hands of another in Chicago and Detroit this week and will remain absolutely meaningless to the media. Apparently the enlightened media aka the MSM, believes that the deaths of teens of color only have meaning if the deed is perpetrated by the likes of Crackers and Cracker Adjacent people. In other words ... a drop of water is much more important and meaningful than the entire bucket of water it is drawn from.

The kid in Texas made a similar comment but ended it with /joking.

Given the "joking" tag, the kid in Texas shouldn't have been charged with bad humor not a felony.

It is very odd to have only a 6 person jury in a capital case.

I must wonder if the defense agreed to it.

The number of jurors varies by state. In my state it is 12, but I have heard of 6 in other states.

A psychiatric checkup was in order for anybody who can make such a joke. However, no jail time was warranted.

From what I understand it’s just the way they do it in Florida. There’s no agreeing/disagreeing with it. This isn’t a special instance where they set the number at six. It’s always six.

I always thought criminal trials had 12 jurors, and civil trials had 6, but I was corrected on FR a week or two ago, by someone saying that it varied state-by-state. News to me.

Are they actually saying that you can "violently voice" an opinion? Or are they just saying that they are voicing opinions that there should be violence?

Because I still think we live in a free country where you are allowed to voice your opinion, so long as you do not actually commit criminal acts.

I tell you, one sick part of me wants to see him convicted...of the worst charge: Murder in the 2nd just to shove it up the arses of all the people who are asleep in this country...that THIS could happen to THEM.. but the other part of me gains some sense, wants to see this jury reject and spit on EVERYTHING the statists tried to pin on Zimmerman. I am hoping the latter happens because I know if the first happens, the brain dead morons in this country will not give a damn which is just how the statists like it.

Like one cop said to me: “In a worst case scenario, even if Zimmerman was following Martin 2 inches away from his face, was calling him every racist name in the book, that still does not give Martin the right to pound Zimmerman into the ground.” and I hope the jury is smart enough to realize that.

They just arrested a black guy today here in NYC for knocking out a drunk white guy who called him the “N” word. Even though the white deserved it, the LAW says you can’t do that and rightfully so because you risk DEATH. This guy could very well die as could have Zimmerman if he did not shoot.

It would seem odd to me that, given half the country thinks Zimmerman should be free, that they could get 6 people on a jury who would ALL vote to convict.

It is more often the case that guilty people are found not guilty, because of the burden of proof.

I find it hard to imagine that, in the end, judges on appeal would not eventually free zimmerman, on the simple fact that this is clearly a reasonable doubt as to self-defense, given that he was being beaten at the time.

If I were to add one thing to the defense closing, I would have pointed out this to the six women on the jury: “Imagine that you have been attacked by a young black man, and he is holding you pinned to the ground, and beating you, as the evidence shows was happening to GZ in this case. Now, imagine a white guy approaches, and that white man has a gun.

“What the prosecution is telling you today is — that white man has no right to use that gun to save you from the assault. If it was you, would you want the man with the gun to leave in fear of being thrown in jail — or would you applaud him for coming to your rescue”.

You’re right. the jury selection process showed that many biased jurors passed the initial “screening process” and were in the final selection pool. Doubt this jury is non biased and probably will not come to a consensus. There was so much political pressure to convict this guy, that the jury pool was probably tainted from the beginning by “court officials”. The prosecution bias of the judge was obvious. The Defense did well if it was able to get two or three non biased people on that jury.

Old Man Video: This guy is a 100% idiot - there was a neighborhood watch because of all the crime occurring in that close community. Time the public starts acting responsible, accountable, and respectful and mothers and fathers should raise their children as such...and these crimes wouldn’t happen. Using God’s name in vain is irresponsible and yelling into a camera???

I’m not covering for this one. There’s a difference between a kid that posts a threat that’s in jest and clearly indicates it’s in jest. And someone who posts a threat with no indication that it’s anything but a threat.

The people posting threats and calling on others to riot in the wake of Zimmerman ought to all suffer the consequences. They’re not joking, they’re trying to stir up trouble.

We already know there are millions of welfare bred violent people out there. It is just a mater of time that something sets them off. That seems obvious to me and many...we will have a civil war again...this time the government needy against the free people who have been sucked dry for many years.
I don’t think those idiots deserve headline space on FR.

Sad to say, you are right about a lot of women. They make emotional, not rational decisions. However, I take after both my grandmothers. Both were smart and stood up for their convictions, especially my German/Italian, Catholic paternal grandmother. She was conservative to the point she would not vote for Catholic JFK, and told me FDR was one of the worst we ever had. 2 of her sons went through WW2 and came home--my father, an enlisted engineer, and my uncle John, a pilot, probably because she prayed for them every day.
