    Actually it’s very easy to evict a lone boarder in a home the landlord lives in, in CA. All that is required is a 30 day notice at which time the police can be called to evict her. In this case their attorneys, the courts, the cops, everyone involved is unaware of this eviction exception.

    There is a difference between insensitive and just plain dog scum cruelty as you so relish. There is no evidence any family member profited from the tragedy Zimwad was responsible for. Zimwad hid his shotgun before the police arrived, then forced them to break the door down.

    Remember all that money that poured in for his defense—the money that was concealed from the court? Zimwad’s lawyers even said publicly they never got paid. So who was it pocketed the sucker’s dough?

    George “the Z stands for Zorro” Zimwad is a pathetic loser who will only stop causing pain when he’s locked up for good.

    It will be a travesty of justice if the completely unremorseful p.o.s. Zimwad is not convicted of at least manslaughter. Nobody jumped out of the bushes at him. Nobody said “What’s your problem?” The teen said “Why you following me?” To which, (although he should not have been there in the first place) the only answer should have been “I’m George Zimmerman, neighborhood watch.” Georgie never claimed to legitimize himself to the reasonably frightened teen, who, as it turned out, had a very good reason to fear for his life.

    Not holding one in the chamber saves lives. It gives the other party a final chance to reassess should they not be clear on how to act when facing the barrel of a gun or rifle. You must not have seen “Rifleman” enough as a kid. Or seen so many movies showing shotguns made ready as the last warning saying “Really, I mean business.”

    Anyone defending the ultimate mall cop wannabe is dangerous in my opinion. Georgie wasn’t gonna let this bad guy get away, despite knowing he shouldn’t approach on foot. And knowing he wasn’t supposed to be packing as a volunteer for the neighborhood busy body patrol.

    BTW just yesterday I was packing on my property, exchanged words with someone and they took off after me. What did I do? I ran. What would I do if he didn’t stop running after me? Draw down on him. If he continued? Rack em up. Issue a loud commanding order to freeze. And then if he continues the assault? Shoot to stop.

    Licensed by the bureau of security and investigative services. Train regularly in an indoor firing range.

    AND, last but not least, I have confronted criminals TWICE with my weapon. I kept a distance far enough away so that I could chamber.

    The first group of individuals were rioting post mlk assasination. I was escorting a friend across campus. College authorities had advised us not to go outside. I refuse to live in fear even for a couple of nights.

    About a dozen rioters nearly surrounded us when I whipped out my pistol. As I was fanning it I commandingly yelled “Everybody freeze.”

    Do you think any one of those dozen or so rioters moved another step?

    Zimwad was out for blood that night and states he has absolutely no regrets. And I believe the person on the phone when she said Trayvon said “Why you followin’ me?” See Georgy Porgy fibbed about that because he doesn’t want to be portrayed as following the teen. And he did not identify himself. Anyone with an ounce of decency in their heart listening to Zimwad on Hannity say he has no regrets—how can you kill an innocent kid and have no regrets? Oh, right, right, he was getting the worst of the scuffle, but managed to scream help with his nose pinched shut and his mouth covered. Right.

    Love to hear even one of you armchair commandos relate a real gun incident. No law says you can’t draw down fearing imminent harm.

    Maybe for law enforcement or military but for the rest of us it is the way to go. And in this case, if what Zimwad said was true, which it isn’t, he would not have had to worry about the gun being used against him.
    A racking takes about half a second and with no other safety it is the only way Zimwad should have gone.

    Savage is no leftist. Zimwad should have left the chamber empty and racked it if necessary. That is the equivalent of having a safety.

    That way, if there is a struggle for the gun, the other party cannot simply pull the trigger. That was Michael’s main point and he is dead on.

You act, knowing the building contains precious articles like the bill of rights and you are a hero to all but the simplest of imbeciles.

    Dear ATT

    Thank you for making the switch from Verizon to you a very seamless effort and one for which I am very grateful. The salinas store rep, Hector, did all the leg and paperwork and in a matter of minutes, I was receiving calls on the new system from my old phone number which I was able to keep.

    I hope the relationship will be a long one as I had Verizon over a decade and during that time spent thousands of dollars with them.

    Like almost any personal or business relationship, trust is the glue that allows us to continue. I take at face value the statement from Hector that “I spoke to my manager and ATT is not at this time routinely handing over your call details, although we can’t guarantee that in the future.”

    Fair enough, given that I now live in a police state. But if it is disclosed that you are currently handing over information on this new account, the 2 year agreement will have been based on fraud and subject to not only cancellation without penalty, but also actionable for damages.

    Sincerely,

    The prospect of unregulated governmental monitoring will undoubtedly prove disturbing even to those with nothing illicit to hide. Many individuals, including members of unpopular political organizations or journalists with confidential sources, may legitimately wish to avoid disclosure of their personal contacts. See NAACP v. Alabama, 357 U. S. 449, 357 U. S. 463 (1958); Branzburg v. Hayes, 408 U. S. 665, 408 U. S. 695 (1972); id. at 408 U. S. 728-734 (STEWART, J., dissenting). Permitting governmental access to telephone records on less than probable cause may thus impede certain forms of political affiliation and journalistic endeavor that are the hallmark of a truly free society. Particularly given the Government’s previous reliance on warrantless telephonic surveillance to trace reporters’ sources and monitor protected political activity,
    I am unwilling to insulate use of pen registers from independent judicial review. —from the dissenting opinions in the 1979 scotus decision that was later overturned by a 1988 congressional act.

    I hope the relationship will be a long one as I had Verizon over a decade and during that time spent thousands of dollars with them.

    Like almost any personal or business relationship, trust is the glue that allows us to continue. I take at face value the statement from Hector that “I spoke to my manager and ATT is not at this time routinely handing over your call details, although we can’t guarantee that in the future.”

    Fair enough, given that I now live in a police state. But if it is disclosed that you are currently handing over information on this new account, the 2 year agreement will have been based on fraud and subject to not only cancellation without penalty, but also actionable for damages.

    Sincerely,

    John Kaza
