Not liking? I have no problem with the verdict.<quoted text>
There is zero evidence of any hate crime being committed. Remember, the Police, FBI and Grand Jury chose not to file charges. Is the NAACP planning on creating new evidence? If not, what is there to look at? The evidence was presented and a verdict rendered. Oh, toesap, what were you saying about someone not liking the verdict? Tell it to the NAACP.
BTW, I never said there was evidence of a hate crime.
What I did say was that DOJ might continue investigating making GZ's life miserable and that they can be vindictive SOBs.
Now how does that appear I don't "like" the verdict.
In fact if GZ had been found guilty and given only 10 years I would have felt sorry for the stupid schlump. He really didn't understand how inappropriate it is for a neighborhood watch volunteer to pursue fantasy suspects with a gun. He was playing cops & robbers, but Martin's only real life was ended. Martin should have avoided confrontation. He could have easily outrun Zimmerman. Martin was not without fault, but he didn't deserve to be picked on and shot dead by an adult. If Zimmerman does this again, I doubt the jury will be forgiving.
If the Blockburger test were applied for a hate crime prosecutiion, there would not be double jeopardy as hated crime is not a lesser included offense of murder in the 2nd degree or manslaughter.
