<quoted text>That would not have happened, the shooting occurred on a Sunday evening, a bit past 7PM, by the time George had been transported and booked it would have been past 4AM on the 27th and first hearing would be just a few hours away when a judge could decide.
A cop can't fkn declare SYG, particularly for a guy with violence on his rapsheet__a states attorney or assistant states attorney can but where was was that person in all this? We don't know__apparently no one at the states attorney's office became involved in the decision to cut George loose. Perhaps that explains why the governor and attorney general removed the case from the Seminole-Brevard states attorney and assigned it to the the 5th district SA, Angela Corey.
Hey, it's my experience that ya can't fk up in step two before you fk up step one.
If George had been arrested and booked immediately, this case would never had become more than page 12 news.
Exactly, and the body was a John Doe for how long? He had a cell phone on him.

Fox News Helps Promote George Zimmermanís Latest Fundraiser: His Lawsuit Against NBC
http://www.newshounds.us/fox_news_helps_promo...
NBC saw the death of Trayvon Martin not as a tragedy but as an opportunity to increase ratings, start a race war and so set about to create the myth that George Zimmerman was a racist and predatory villain.

Since the edited recordings were aired, NBC has claimed that it had not engaged in a "deliberate act to misrepresent," saying instead that the phoney edits had originated out of a desire to shorten the audio for television air-time instead of trying to defame Zimmerman. NBC has since fired- three separate people involved with the faked recordings although it has never actually apologized on the air to viewers. That reluctance to apologize may prove very useful to Zimmerman now that his suit against NBC is likely to resume.

NBC recklessly, deliberately claimed that GZ had used the archaic racial slur coons when referring to some black men who he claimed had successfully burglarized his neighborhood.

This was later demonstrated to be false. Even the prosecution in Zimmerman's criminal case admitted that the word used was punks. The FBI has reported: No evidence George Zimmerman is racist...

It is still a disproportionate number of black school closings. I notice you ignored Chicago..where only 41.7 percent of the students are black but 90 percent of students affected by public school closings are African American, That is called Foxicizing the facts.
Many factors are to blame but it is still unfair.
Given that virtually every elected official and department head in Philadelphia is black, how can the school closings be racist.?

Chicago is different, controlled by machine politics and their labor union allies, a white racist power structure. The Chicago closings may well be racist. But then, unions have always been racist.

Really? Then you must be listening to a different congressional hearing than I am...
"J. Russell George, the inspector general at the Treasury Department investigating the IRS targeting scandal, told Congress on Thursday that he did not block the disclosure of documents showing the tax agency may have targeted liberal groups."
It's a Republican witch hunt that is going no where.

I liked this editorial by Graham J Noble.

IRS lawyer Carter Hull told congressional investigators that his superiors informed him that the chief counselís office, headed by Obama-appointee William Wilkins, needed to subject certain applications to additional review because of potential political activity. It should be noted that no left-wing organizations had been subjected to this scrutiny.

The common refrain from this administration, in every situation, is that the people at the top of the ladder are, somehow, always completely unaware of decisions made by their staff.

It begs the question; why does the US government even have an executive branch when, by its own contention, it makes no decisions and is not, in any way, involved in running the country?

An additional question might be; why is anyone reading the mainstream media, when they constantly refuse to report on some of the most important political issue of the day?

The American people should be asking themselves; if the previous Presidentís administration was so directly culpable in every event that damaged the nation, then why is the current Presidentís administration so completely detached and uninvolved?

...That's what I ask myself every single day.

Beyond that not very much.

Detroit filed for bankruptcy this afternoon becoming the nation's largest public sector bankruptcy. The move could slash pension benefits to city workers and retirees and leave bond holders with only pennies on the dollar.

A shirtless man apprehended near the White House told officers he was ďonly going to fire a couple of shots if no one confronted me,Ē NBC Washington reported.

Secret Service police arrested Christopher Wade Briggs on Tuesday for carrying a pistol and two knives in Lafayette Park, which just north of the White House. He was also carrying an open container of alcohol.

According to court documents, his pistol was loaded with 13 rounds. He was also carrying two more full magazines and 171 rounds of ammo.

Chicago is 61.3% black and Hispanic.

Chicago schools are 85.7% black and Hispanic and only 8.8% white.

The population of Chicago has been steadily shrinking for the last 60 years.

Seems like the closings are in line with the demographics, unless the Hispanics are screwing the blacks.

I think drug & alcohol testing is standard operating procedure in most homicide cases. There were reports of a law enforcement expert who said Zimmerman sounded like he'd been drinking.
However, since the police blew it off, we will never know.
Any rational person in Zimmerman's position would have immediately demanded an attorney and refused any further cooperation if asked to take an alcohol or drug test without probable cause.
