"Black-killing"? Sounds like the actions of a criminal to me. Best you look in the "negroe" file for that one.
BTW, no need to even discuss Trayvon's Purple Lean useage anymore (until it and all the OTHER really gory stuff comes out if there's a civil trial). Do you know why?
It's July 18, Enochsockdrawer. You still got kids in your classroom?

So, what you're saying is, regardless of the evidence, an arrest has to be made, right?
You do realize that the state's attorney had to commit a felony and hide evidence from the grand jury to get an indictment, don't you?
What the verdict proved is no arrest should have been made to begin with.
Besides, when the indictment was made, Zimmerman was easy to find, wasn't he?
As it turned out, all the right decisions were made until the state's attorney committed a felony to get an indictment against Zimmerman from a grand jury.
So, when do you think Eric Holder will press charges against that state's attorney for violating Zimmerman's civil rights?
You do realize that the state's attorney had to commit a felony and hide evidence and lie under oath to get an indictment, don't you?

But the whole point is everyone demanded a trial. That's all the parents said they wanted. Heck, that's all I wanted.
The SYG law was no longer an issue once the trial began because Zimmerman didn't want it to be.
So why do you keep talking about it?
That's not so, what the family and many others wanted was an arrest in order that the event play itself out in the courtroom and not the back room. The SYG law was introduced by the police department as it's basis for cutting George loose rather than booking him and letting a judge make the decision.

Pay attention___we've had a first hearing judge and then three others. George has had two sets of attorneys, the first set held a press conference to proclaim that George had established a collection-website and then disappeared and was not returning their calls.

We learned that George's pal Mark was steering him around early, advising against Hal Uhrig and promoting Mark NeJame. We learned that NeJame couldn't get involved as one of his partners was married to the first judge assigned to the case. NeJame recommended O'Mara and the judge had to recuse herself anyway because it was learned that NeJame was in bed with O'Mara too.

Enter Judge Kenny Lester who has no use for Zimmerman, his family and probably O'Mara. Lester hikes George's bond to one million $ because he lied, Shellie lied and it was learned that George had two passports. Brokeazz George who's running from creditors and has over a hundred grand in pay pal loot also has two passports. Hah!

O'Mara claims he had no earthly idea that George had been shuffling big money around via Shellie on the jail house phone and gets a huge pass from Lester because the former lawyer, Uhrig knew all about the loot.

Are you following along here? Probably not because you're too fkn stupid to keep up or you just don't like details.

You just "Can't Get Right"
Little story for you losersnotta (I put it that way because I think that people that have to "cop a snotty" attitude on purpose, just to put themselves on some sort of pedastal at others expense are really kind of lacking) but ayway--
Your posts remind me of an airhead I once had the displeasure of having to work around for a short while one time.
This airhead was late for-every single day, but people being what they are and all, every one just kind of tolerated-not a problem type of thing.

So anyway-one day, with the airhead late as usual, I personally got a little doubled upped on some work for a few minutes-instead of having to just moniter my area (and keep a half eye out on the airheads area till she arrived each day) I had an out-of-the ordinary call for priority assistance request -a kind of "go the exta mile spur of the moment to try and help type of thing."
Okay, so no problem, my area was under control and all good-the airheads appeared to be okay as well when the priority call for assistance rolled in, so I went ahead to check on the assistance request. Didn't take me 10-15 or so minutes till I was heading back to my area, which was still good and clear, when I was stopped to be enlightened to a pretty interesting scenario.
See thing was, being as the airhead was late for her area each day-she had a good little backlog waiting for her, in HER area that morning. When the (AirH) wasn't there, some decided to try rousting anyone over in my area-which technically meant,if I recieved an assistance request having to do with MY area, that took PRIORITY over keeping one eye out on someone elses area-gratus.
Long story short, when the backlog of people that were scheduled for the OTHER persons area showed up-and she wasn't there-and I was were I should've been, doing what I should've been-they had to WAIT a few minutes. SO when the the AH showed up-late as usual-that same little group of backlogged folks, inquired of her where I might be. Of course, being as she had just gotten there herself-she had NO IDEA that I had a priority assistance call, and chose instead, to speak a Bold faced LIE, in attempts to cover her OWN FAULT and FLAWS no doubt, and dump her OWN smoke and mirror FAULT on me, with out evidence or apparently even with out thought of at least having to have some decency in TRUTH, to at least say she did not know, rather than make up a BOLD FACED LIE.

I have a very LOW regard for people like that leosnotta-I find them shifty and untrustworthy--who often times will try a-n-y-thing just to accomodate their own self servedness.

And you kind of remind me of that type of person.

And I sure wouldn't want ayone like that, sitting on a jury of anyone just trying to get the standard procedure of "Fair trials" as practiced in this nation of Civil laws.

Why poliTICs and the legal system practice of fair jury trials often don't meld well-too many LIARS in poliTICS.

The dispatcher had to protect herself and the city from liability. The only way she could do that was by quoting their boiler plate response, "We don't need for you to do that". If had wanted him not to follow Trayvon, she would have said so.
Again, Zimmerman did nothing wrong. He spotted what he thought might be someone about to commit a crime and he reported it. He can't help the FACT that he was carrying a gun off-duty. Things happen. You are still tilting at windmills.
Your third statement is a stretch in this case but certainly false. All 50 states have some type of Good Samaritan Law which will protect a person who helps out in an emergency, including an off-duty doctor or lifeguard. "An overriding purpose of such statutes are to encourage laypersons and professionals to help out those in need, even when they are under no legal obligation to do so."
"Medical professionals cannot be found liable for negligence or medical malpractice for providing aid in an emergency situation outside of their normal place of business or other facilities which are equipped with proper and necessary medical equipment."
That "boilerplate response" is quite the stretch. The only reason to mention it is to get him to stop doing it.

My premise is that being a Neighborhood Watch Captain that he knew the correct procedures & yet ignored them. He should be held to a higher standard than just a guy walking down the street.

Good Samaritan laws protect against lawsuits if the care given is within normal parameters. If you are in a car wreck with a broken arm & a doctor stops by & cuts off your leg, they are not protected by the good samaritan law because as a doctor, they should have known better. The point being that a doctor is still a doctor outside of office hours & held to those standards.

Just as Zimmerman knew better even though off duty. He knew better to follow Martin. He knew better to be armed. He knew better to not identify himself. He was in his neighborhood watch area. If he didn't know, he had no business being a Neighborhood Watch Captain.

<quoted text>Here in my hometown, I'm known to rock out. If I was stalking a dude &, he caught wind of me doing such &, a fight broke out. I would fight until I couldn't fight anymore. I wouldn't just shoot dude because I was violating him from the beginning. Now put in context everything from that night. The emergency dispatcher first told him to not follow Martin, then informed him the police were already on their way. When he hung up the phone, he was 20 yds from the T where the fight broke out. Yet it was 2min before the fight broke out so, in 2 min & some sec, Zimmerman only made it 20yds. More evidence he was stalking Martin! Now after all those violations, the fight breaks out. A grown man.against a 16yr old kid! The grown man knowing the police is on the way & the kid fighting for his life from a stranger that stalked him for over 200yds. He knew exactly what he was doing . That's why he shot instead of getting a warning shot or, telling the boy," I got a gun." The reason it's difficult to put myself in Zimmerman's shoes is, if I thought someone looked suspicious, I would've grabbed my gun & approached the situation loudly, with my hand on my gun. Letting dude know I'm strapped & and him what is he doing here. Chances are, everything would've been resolved without the police or the altercation. If Zimmerman identified himself (neighborhood watch) & let Trayvon know he was strapped, the situation would've been resolved without incident. and that's after all the mistakes Zimmerman made.
Thing is though, we can't make up the scenario we'd rather have seen it-we can only base it on the evidence as presented.
IF it all gets the once over again-I would hope that ALL evidence is presented--rather than trying for the "poliTICal" sway, because politics should never play a part in something such as this case.

So, for the most part, it's you're either with me or against me! Y'all take it as racist because, you self identify the the true target of black folks frustrations. It just so happens that, the system is run by elite level white folks & the fact that most of y'all remain silent is like involuntarily siding with the elites.
