Barack Obama, our next President

In private business, all involved would either be fired or would work nights and weekends on the own time to get the job done.
Own time, not overtime.
Not really.

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?

Just stick with the FACTS.
Have you answered Carols question?
If someone was standing over you in the dark, on a rainy night, giving you an animalistic type "bashing"--rather than acting like a civilized human being, able to communicate with others in a civilized manner (as in hands AND bad attitude MOUTH OFF)...and chose to Jump you instead--inflicting physical harm on to you--causing you to fear for YOUR life-what would YOU have done?
That could've been ANYONE else standing in Zimmerman's shoes as well.
Answer the question-what would you have done.
NO LYING just to try and self escalate yourself either. You have to be honest-I have no problem being HONEST answering it myself.
I'd've popped a cap too...in SELF DEFENCE.
As in-NOT Guilty.
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.

<quoted text>ongresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, a senior member of the House Judiciary and Homeland Security Committee, released the following statement today:
“Today was a questionable day as it relates to the life of a young child. America’s justice system is often viewed as coddling and protecting our children, the most vulnerable members of our society. As someone who has devoted much of my public life to advocating for the protection of children, whether from gun violence, bullying at school and in cyberspace, drugs, and unhealthy foodstuffs, I am dismayed that the Florida judicial system did not recognize and value the life of young Trayvon Martin. Trayvon’s family and friends missed him on the day he was killed and they still miss him today. They are right to wonder why others seemed to attach so little value to his life.
“The federal government stands to serve justice in cases where there is much doubt as to whether justice was done by the local authorities. I expect to join with others in discussions with the U.S. Department of Justice regarding the killing of Trayvon Martin, who was but 16 years and 21 days old when he was shot to death. I am also calling for the Congress to hold oversight hearings regarding the treatment of the killing of a juvenile in the circumstances that occurred in Sanford, Florida as well as the manner in which the criminal justice system treats victims of gun violence, especially young black male victims like Trayvon Martin.
“Many mothers tonight are praying, as I am, hopeful that things remain calm but also hoping that justice for young Trayvon Martin will be pursued.
“To the the young people who have grown to see Trayvon Martin as themselves, we encourage you to continue to invest in improving your nation, working with people of all backgrounds who feel as you do – disappointed – but will join with you in the fight for justice.
“We are all Trayvon.”
“We are all Trayvon victims”

Who's fault do you think it is? It does seem like a deliberate decisioin. Who is making those decisions?
People who would rather see Charter Schools than public ones and those who believe budget shortfalls should be corrected on the backs of those who contribute the least to their coffers.

“Guess who’s coming to dinner, because we’re coming up north and we’re going to enroll our children … and you’re going to treat them as good as you treat these white babies up north,” activist Jitu Brown said.“The problem is not these white babies up north. They’re not the problem. They deserve a world-class education, but so do our babies."

“It’s an example of schools on a different side of town where there’s a different set of priorities,” Brown said.“There is a two-tiered education system in the city of Chicago that is racist and discriminatory; that has a lower set of expectations for African-American children and Latino children, and a higher set of expectations for children that happen to be white.”

“If this was theatrics, then we’ll take a bow, but at the end of the day, we’re saying whatever tactics we have to use to expose this two-tiered education system, we’ll do it,” Push has come to shove.

What was the final disposition on that? Iirc it occurred in/over North Carolina and involved underage drinking and assault-pushin-shovin etc. Did they give the kid a pass because his daddy's a US Senator? Wouldn't be the first time eh?

<quoted text>But juror B37 said it was part of the reason there could be no other verdict. Maybe the Justice Department can put SYG on trial--SYG = snuff the witnesses in my book.
The prosecution overshot. If they had stuck with manslaughter, there might have been a different outcome. And other people would have been angry with the verdict.

But they went for 2nd degree requiring them to prove intentional malice. They couldn't because there was none.

If people want to be mad at somebody, they should be mad at the prosecution.

The SYG law would have to be changed in nearly half the states.

Is the federal government's job to meddle into states' laws?

So why bother? Why did the dispatcher bother telling Zimmerman that they did not need him to follow Martin? I mean other to get him not to?
Being a Neighborhood Watch Captain means he knows the correct way to patrol , spot crime & report it. He knows that he should not be armed & not be confrontational & identify himself.
If a doctor stops at accident scene to help, he can be sued for malpractice because he is considered a doctor after office hours. A lifeguard can be held responsible at a drowning scene even if they are not on duty.
And do not ever give someone in another car the hand motion like they can go, if an accident ensues you can be held responsible.
