Preaching to the choir. About a week or two ago I battled the Martin/Zimmerman trolls for hours a day. It’s exasperating.
This may well be the last straw. It is a lynching, and not even of a white guy but an hispanic democrat.
” After nearly two years of investigation without coming up with one charge why is the DoJ still investigating Sheriff Joe Arpaio?”
1) Desperation...too much time invested already.
2) They knew he would retaliate, if attacked.
3) He DID retaliate.
4) Arpaio has better than even odds he can destroy Obama.
5) Add destroy Holder (F & F).
If the question was "Does RIghtwardHo have a clue?" you answered that in spades!
It’s all about money. Pure and simple. It’s money money money. If the Martins can get GZ arrested, then they can sue. Doesn’t matter about a conviction. From Crump’s mouth to God’s ear last night on O’Reilly (Laura Igraham substituting), he said they want him arrested, not convicted. Why not convicted? Because Florida law allows them to sue in civil court if he is merely arrested. They want to sue the HOA and city of Sanford.
My understanding is that the Martins quit their jobs. Wonder why?
Note to the NBPP; George Zimmerman was spotted today having a cheeseburger at McDonalds in Peru, Sweetwater, Wyoming or was it one of the many other Perus in The OLD USA?
Is it too late to tell you it was rhetorical question? LOL
>Enjoy the riots after he is found not guilty.<
Not if there is a majority black/jury. And the black panthers will be demanding a “fair” jury. Zimmerman will be found guilty for the same reason he is being indicted; because “white folks” is scared of “black folks.”
What I’d like to know is when is us “crackers” gonna get enough of this crap and stand up for ourselves and take it to the Black Panther Party racist POS who are able to put bounties on white folks with full cover of the Fed.Gov Imagine what would happen if the KKK did it to a black man? I can tell you what. He’d end up dead, that’s what.
With all this violent rhetoric I just can’t believe we haven’t seen scores of people dead in their homes, sides of the road, etc... as they listen to all of this.
Why won’t the government just clamp done on all of this and save us from untold potential of these words???
Leni this is truly an amazing time and the more I read about the Wilson and then FDR so many of same damn failed ideas where in full force then and people were screaming about it and YET BECAUSE WE ALLOW ALL OF THE ASSHOLES to revise history we are destined to repeat it!!!
Interestingly, I have been absolutely 100% correct about this from the beginning.
I stand ready to be amazed by your command of the facts and relevant law. Go ahead. Dazzle me.
1. Armed v. unarmed (correct)
2. Police told him not to follow but he did (wrong)
3. Scream was probably Treyvon (says who?)
4. Pursuing obviates application of stand your ground. He can not avail himself of its protection.(he was being held down and beaten)
5. Zimmerman seen straddling Treyvons body.(BS. Where did you see this)
6. No evident significant injury to Zimmerman despite claim he was so injured.(what did you want? Brains spewing from his head?)
7. Girlfriends testimony that Treyvon felt he was being followed. Treyvon Treyvon turning on Martin, esp under FL law, is fine if he felt threatened.(Beating someone because they may be following you is ok in Florida?)
Your first point was fine. Rule #1. Never go to a gun fight with a knife. Or in this case with your fists.
Other than that you pretty much have a large case of FAIL!!!
ah it’s all about redistribution of wealth...set the town up to be sued by Holder...take all of whitey’s money and give put in Obama’s stash to be shared with their cronies...
par for the course nothing to see here...
OMG my head is going to explode!!!
I get it : )
Juries are supposed to be UNfair. Unfair to the prosecution. The prosecution has the unfair burden of excluding EVERY reasonable doubt. all of them. If just one reasonable doubt out of 10,000 remains then the defendant MUST be found not guilty. period.
I guess the plan now is to charge him and then move to politically intimidating a jury to convict.
The left is hellbent on destroying this man. There will be no impartial jury allowed for this case and the heck with facts.
I think you are confusing the law with facts and justice.
For all we know, Zimmerman said something totally stupid to the authorities while trying to be “helpful”. That could be all they need to file charges. He hasn’t exactly been exhibiting the behavior of somebody cagily playing the legal game.
I agree that the “evidence” we’ve been presented with points toward self defense, but what we see and hear could be a lot different from what Corey has to work with.
What the law says and what’s just and right are often pretty different things.
It truly is. I have fond memories of CA. It's a beautiful state. Two of my kids (navy brats) were born there.
saleman for the win!
