But if you did, could you come home and look those little goats in the eye and tell them there’s no hate in your heart? ... I doubt you have the level of duplicitous thinking required to be a good rioter. And you would need a big dose of Magic Thinking to justify your riotous behavior don’tchaknow.

Thanks for the ping....I took the occasion to refresh myself on Nevada self defense laws.

The only thing I would like to see change here is to have a Castle Doctrine for immunity against law suits, other then that all seems to be in order.

Even carry laws here are in order, shall issue State, may carry in car even concealed as long as the weapon is not concealed on your person (absent CCW).

Now all we have to do is get rid of Reid and Heller.

LED...no nasty LCDs.

LED's are LCD's. The LCD just uses LED's as a backlight.

So, now, there are two cases that compare - both from New York.

2009: Roderick Scott found not guilty when he armed himself and confronted teens breaking into cars. He shoots and kills a 16-year-old.

2010: John White found guilty but released early after he'd armed himself and walked out of his house to confront a group of teens, and then shot and killed a 17-year-old.

White had walked out of his house to confront of a group of teens. When John White was found guilty, Al Sharpton organized protests in support of him.

Zimmerman, armed, exited his vehicle. When George Zimmerman was found not guilty, Sharpton organized protests against him.

There are some differences: The first two cases were in New York, where the law requires you to retreat to a safe place (right?) In the John White case, the group was targeting his family and came to his house. In the Roderick Scott case, the teens were (allegedly?) breaking into cars. According to Zimmerman's own account, Martin was just walking down the street (at first). (There are no eyewitnesses to what happened between GZ exiting the vehicle and TM being on top of GZ, right?) But we do know that GZ didn't shoot until TM was literally on top of him.

But, there's another main difference: Both Scott and White walked out of their own homes and brandished guns at a group of teens. Zimmerman got out of his vehicle, and it doesn't sound like he brandished his gun at T. Martin.

It doesn't matter what anyone out there reading might think about the GZ trial and its outcome. (I personally am not a fan of GZ.) You'd have to admit that Sharpton and his minions of all races, along with the media, are playing both sides, just to pit people against each other. These protests, the uproar - it's about money and politics, and nothing else.

Don't forget that John White was also pardoned by the Governor. By the Governor!

Imagine if Zimmerman was convicted and Rick Scott pardoned him! Or even worse, JEB BUSH! Every city in the USA would be burning.

John White, convicted of killing Daniel Cicciaro, pardoned by Gov. David Paterson

OLED is where it's at now.

If a hockey riot breaks out nearby, I want to get one of these bad boys. (As a newish tech, they're still quite a bit out of my price range.)

I saw those at the NAB Show here recently. Also saw the 2x, 4x and 8X HDTV.

Awesome pictures but are definitely 5 or so years down the road...at least.

I live in an “unlimited” Stand your Ground state. I’m a disabled vet, aka senior citizen, and a proud half-breed. I don’t know, nor can perform any sort of ‘fancy legwork or handwork stuff’. I don’t go looking for inopportune moments in my life.

It is THE THUG who thinks that anything and everything you own, is their’s for the taking and ownership. It is THE THUG that searches the crowds, for whom to set themselves upon. It is THE THUG that determines the time, the place, and the means and the manner of which to dislodge, what they think is ‘their’s’ from you.

It is, solely, due to the continued existence of a human species called THUGS, that I have chosen to exercise my 2A right, in the defense of my life against THUGS.

PA is on the map incorrectly, but what do you expect when Reuters doesn’t do research and accepts research from the Brady Campaign as truth.

A similar case that got no national tv coverage because the Black guy wasn’t the one who ate a bullet?

I’m shocked.

You can add Colorado to that map. Colorado is a “no duty to retreat” state by long-standing case law. But it does not have the extra protections against civil liability that the FLA stand your ground law has.

This is all payback for strange fruit lore.....even though blacks murdering whites body count is hundreds if not thousands times higher numbers than whites killing them....Crow related or not

Its this image the now somewhat minority dominated media PROMOTE.....even though white murder of blacks has been very uncommon since the early 60s......no matter......we are in a new internal cold war:

Indiana btw.....the lynching that inspired Ms Holliday ...well...inspired the communist who wrote the song

And here’s another theory: Roderick perhaps could be a “Black White” as opposed to a “White Black.” Right? Confusing.

And notably, they are states with the highest crime rates, no doubt.

I guess what is good for the goose, is NOT good for the gander in this case...

You’d think hypocrisy like this would be a ratings boost for any news agency...But nooooooooo...

You’re way too easy to lose.

If you can joke, why can’t anyone else?

You're probably right... ;-)

I encourage everyone else to joke. Just because I don't get it desn't mean it was bad. As you said, often times I'm easy to lose. Please, don't mind me.
