That's how the Republicans designed it in the early 1990s.

Jacques,
Maybe if there are any lessons to be learned by the public from the Trayvon Martin killing, one is that if someone feels they are being stalked or followed or threatened in any manner, they should immediately get on the horn to the police and notify them that someone is making them uneasy.
There are all these what if's and should have's floating around out there, mostly around Zimmerman.
Well, what if Martin had called the police himself, which he did not.
I think they both took the law into their own hands.
I wish it had not have happened.
If a 17 year old teen in excellent shape is being followed by a fat slob, he/she should run.

Yep, you rob a Post Office, and kill a customer while doing so, you will be tried in a FEDERAL court for the robbery and in a State court for the murder.
If a bank is FDIC insured and it is robbed, the robber is not tried in federal court of the robbery itself, but for stealing federally insured money!

Why is Kate Middleton going to a PRIVATE facility to have her baby? Why the 99% of the Brits get third-rate medical care, the One Percenters will always get POSH treatment.
In a few years, the American 53%ers who pay taxes, will get the same health care that our military vets have been getting all along.

I said Zimmerman's actions provoked Martin. Whenever Rouge sees "provoked" he hallucinates "crime".

And if Zimmerman tried to hold Martin at the scene (rather than punching), instigating the fight, he'll never tell. The fact is no one (except perhaps Zimmerman) knows what happened.

But Zimmerman's hands are not clean and I have no doubt Rouge will never comprehend why.

Not liking? I have no problem with the verdict.
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.

Hummm, WTF? What do tanks have to do with football? What do tanks have to do with civil unrest? I seriously doubt that they ordered tanks for the world cup.
There are a lot of bad actors in that part of the world and they are not going to wait until a football game to start things. Methinks the writer is just trying to get a name for himself for connecting the dots ,,,,,,, where there are NO DOTS!
Qatar set to purchase 118 tanks to prepare for 2022 World Cup Mike Prindiville Jul 14, 2013,
Qatar is set to purchase 118 Leopard tanks and 16 tank howitzers from Germany in preparation for hosting the 2022 World Cup.
German newspaper Bild am Sonntag made the announcement Sunday claiming the oil-rich nation will pay several billion dollars to German defense manufacturer Krauss-Maffei Wegmann and defense tech group Rheinmetall.
The deal comes after the government of German Chancellor Angela Merkel approved the initial purchase of 62 Leopard tanks and 24 howitzers this past spring.

That is easy...

They need the Howitzers to cut down troop columns marching on the Soccer match.

They need 62 Leopard tanks to drown out the gaddamn Vuvuzela.

Umm, I said Zimmerman actions could be viewed as provocation. Nothing about Z violating statute by following.
BTW, genius, Zimmerman was tried because the prosecution cleared the probable cause hurdle. That's how it works.
Nevertheless, trial by jury is not germane to my comment, which pointed out that the jury has nothing to do with immunity under 776.032 or any reimbursement for fees and expenses related to the trial.
Zimmerman is not entitled to expenses and fees under 776.032 and the jury has nothing to do with that.
Do you think you can ever stay on point?

Are you a complete idiot? He was charged because the clowns in D.C. pressured the authorities to do so! Plain and simple.

Bill Clinton and all Newt Gingrich and Senator Phil Gramm Republicans destroyed America.
And yet you still love Rightwing Rino Newt and Phil Gramm.
==========
McCain guru linked to subprime crisis / Republican Phil Gramm
3/28/08 / http://tinyurl.com/2ujo9b
The general co-chairman of John McCainís presidential campaign, former Sen. Phil Gramm (R-Texas), led the charge in 1999 to repeal a Depression-era banking regulation law that Democrat Barack Obama claimed on Thursday contributed significantly to todayís economic turmoil.
ďA regulatory structure set up for banks in the 1930s needed to change because the nature of business had changed,Ē the Illinois senator running for president said in a New York economic speech.ďBut by the time [it] was repealed in 1999, the $300 million lobbying effort that drove deregulation was more about facilitating mergers than creating an efficient regulatory framework.Ē
Grammís role in the swift and dramatic recent restructuring of the nationís investment houses and practices didnít stop there.
A year after the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act repealed the old regulations, Swiss Bank UBS gobbled up brokerage house Paine Weber. Two years later, Gramm settled in as a vice chairman of UBSís new investment banking arm.
Later, he became a major player in its government affairs operation. According to federal lobbying disclosure records, Gramm lobbied Congress, the Federal Reserve and Treasury Department about banking and mortgage issues in 2005 and 2006.
During those years, the mortgage industry pressed Congress to roll back strong state rules that sought to stem the rise of predatory tactics used by lenders and brokers to place homeowners in high-cost mortgages.
For his work, Gramm and two other lobbyists collected $750,000 in fees from UBSís American subsidiary. In the past year, UBS has written down more then $18 billion in exposure to subprime loans and other risky securities and is considering cutting as many as 8,000 jobs. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0308/924...

Following innocent kids while playing policeman is not a crime, but it is sick. Zimmerman violated neighborhood watch rules, not a crime, but stupid and behavior consistent with an unbalanced creep.

We will never know who instigated the physical confrontation so it will never be established that Zimmerman assaulted Martin (and you don't have to throw a punch to assault) or vice versa.

All that can be said is that there was reasonable doubt of Zimmerman's guilt. He may have committed a crime before the fact, maybe not. "Not guilty" is not an endorsement.

Ah, but does "looking" at someone constitutes a provocation to assault them? It is funny that you Libtards do not think it is a provocation to get in someones face but think someone walking fifty feet behind you is?
Before Gabriel Giffords shooting, you Libtards thought it was fun to egg someone but if someone thought it was a rock being thrown at them, they did not have the right to defend themselves. Well, today you act weird towards a politician, you might get jumped by people.

On March 1, 2005 I was on Carnival's Conquest and sitting one table from Michael Reagan when a drunk approached his table with his arm out, pointing at him and he stuttered, "You're, you're, you're" and I was getting ready to tackle him he said, "you're Michael Reagan. May I shake your hand"? And that was when I knew he was a friendly drunk.
But I would have tackled him to protect the people at the table next to me.
Oh, Mike's wife is over six feet tall. She got a kick out of my Clinton money.
