And he was right to waive his right to that defense as most would consider it indefensible. Including the guy who wrote the bill.

After murdering a child with a gun, it would have been obvious for a murderer to bang his head on the ground with sufficient force to cause minor bleeding, but no serious injuries, in order to get out of what he created. This is consistent with the evidence that shows no evidence of Z's DNA on TM's hands or any of Z's tissue under his nails.

Disregarding his whacky prediction of a Romney landslide victory and "can you hear us coming" rants, is it surprising that out-and-out racist Justice Ha ha LRS would also ignore Twitchy's apology. When one's a loser, on gets used to it and falls in a rut.

Would letting a suspected perp know that you are in fact a neighborhood watchman not actually defeat the purpose? Or was Zimmerman’s motive even more sinister? News at eleven!

PAT CARBONELL, WHO WRITES THE BLOG LEZ GET LEGAL, OBSERVED:

“That Neighborhood Watch patrols are only supposed to observe and report is a well-known fact; it may be assumed that Trayvon Martin was aware of this. After Mr. Zimmerman left his vehicle, after calling in his report, he has said he approached Trayvon to talk with him.

Even if he identified himself as a Neighborhood Watch member, Trayvon would have had no reason to believe him, as NW patrols are not supposed to confront anyone.

If Mr. Zimmerman demanded that Trayvon give an accounting of himself, the young man had no reason to feel compelled to answer such questioning.

If Mr. Zimmerman then gave any indication that he was trying to obstruct Trayvon from continuing on his way home, such as raising a hand or his voice, Trayvon would have been justified in feeling himself threatened, and under Florida law had a right to defend himself.

Hence, the punch (or several punches) delivered to Zimmerman’s face”

American news media is mostly mute on the developing and explosive situation in the Middle East.
I believe the Arab Spring started in 2003 when Bush and Cheney freed the Shiites in Iraq who are now loyal to Iran.

The whole Middle East is a powder keg ready to blow.

Next will be the fall of Syria.

Isn't it ironic that Iraq was a secular Muslim country with Saddam in power and ZERO threat to its neighbors.

Why Iraq Was a Mistake
By Lt. General GREGORY NEWBOLD, Retired
http://tinyurl.com/p4j93 Apr. 09, 2006
From 2000 until October 2002, I was a Marine Corps lieutenant general and director of operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff. After 9/11, I was a witness and therefore a party to the actions that led us to the invasion of Iraq--an unnecessary war.

Inside the military family, I made no secret of my view that the zealots' rationale for war made no sense. And I think I was outspoken enough to make those senior to me uncomfortable.

But I now regret that I did not more openly challenge those who were determined to invade a country whose actions were peripheral to the real threat--al-Qaeda.

I retired from the military four months before the invasion, in part because of my opposition to those who had used 9/11's tragedy to hijack our security policy. Until now, I have resisted speaking out in public. I've been silent long enough.

General Anthony Zinni, USMC,(Ret.) Remarks at CDI Board of Directors Dinner, May 12, 2004 http://tinyurl.com/8ldmo

I think the first mistake that was made was misjudging the success of containment. I heard the president say, not too long ago, I believe it was with the interview with Tim Russert that ... I'm not sure ... but at some point I heard him say that "containment did not work." That's not true.

So to say containment didn't work, I think is not only wrong from the experiences we had then, but the proof is in the pudding, in what kind of military our troops faced when we went in there.

The third mistake, I think was one we repeated from Vietnam, we had to create a false rationale for going in to get public support. The books were cooked, in my mind. The intelligence was not there. I testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee one month before the war, and Senator Lugar asked me: "General Zinni, do you feel the threat from Saddam Hussein is imminent?" I said: "No, not at all. It was not an imminent threat. Not even close. Not grave, gathering, imminent, serious, severe, mildly upsetting, none of those."

More wisdom from General Zinni who had it right at the beginning.

The sixth mistake, and maybe the biggest one, was propping up and trusting the exiles, the infamous "Gucci Guerillas" from London. We bought into their intelligence reports. To the credit of the CIA, they didn't buy into it, so I guess the Defense Department created its own boutique intelligence agency to vet them. And we ended up with a group that fed us bad information. That led us to believe that we would be welcomed with flowers in the streets; that led us to believe that this would be a cakewalk.

When I testified before Congress in 1998, after a grilling from Senator McCain and all those wonderful senators supported the Iraqi Liberation Act, and I told them that these guys are not credible and they are going to lead us into something they we will regret. At that time, they were pushing a plan that Central Command would supply air support and special forces, and we would put it into Iraq, and they would pied piper their way up to Baghdad and the whole place would fall apart. This plan was created by two senate staffers and a retired General. I happened to be the commander of central command, nobody bothered to ask me about how my troops would be used. And they were a little bit upset about me being upset about this.

These exiles did not have credibility inside the country or in the region. Not only did they not have credibility, it was clear that the information they were providing us many times was not correct and accurate. We believed in them. We also brought them in with us and deemed them into the governing council and the reception by Iraqis has been, to say the least, has not been great.

That seemed weird to me too.

I could be mistaken, but I remember witnesses saying the fight was on grass.

His injuries not being in line with a fist fight could be why 2nd degree murder is the charge.

This is EASY manslaughter. They must be sure they can prove intent to kill the child.

What the hell are you talking about Frank?

Obama is the reason people think Zimmerman was over zealous?

Maybe you could que up a few youtube videos on forming a coherent argument....he he he

People dislike the guy because he did something he had no business doing...then shot a child in the chest.

I agree. On the other hand, "they always get away" could point to intent, as George made sure Travon didn't get away from his imaginary crime of being "up to no good".

This seems like something the defenders of Zimmerman would get real easy if they could just forget Martin was black...and put themselves in his shoes.

Putting myself in Zimmerman's shoes...everything ends after the phone call. And I am home for dinner for the next 20 years.

It only took a few possible scenarios for me to decide...and the more evidence I see...the more I am convinced.

Z. confronted an individual (he was the aggressor) who he had already reported to the police. Got his azz kicked and shot the kid who was defending himself from someone who jumped out of his car...pursued...and confronted him.

I don't think Z. intended to kill the child when he approached him. But after the fight started he purposefully shot Martin center mass.

A whole series of bad decisions on Zimmerman's part.

And he should pay for it.

Agreed. Zimmerman's reckless disregard of substantial risk resulted in another's death. Involuntary manslaughter.
