Barack Obama, our next President

Unfortunately, this president, as usual, didn't know what he was talking about. The Stand Your Ground law wasn't introduced in this case.
Maybe if he would learn the facts before he speaks, he'd be a little more credible.
If he wants to make the issue about changing this law in 20 states, then he should speak directly about doing that. But to tie that issue in with this case where it doesn't belong and speaking out of turn, he just creates more confusion and anger.
Wrong again Carol! Here's part of the judge's instructions to the jury;
"If George Zimmerman was not engaged in an unlawful activity and was attacked in any place where he had a right to be, he had no duty to retreat and had the right to stand his ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he reasonably believed that it was necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony."
That is the gist of Stand Your ground. In addition according Juror B-37 Stand Your Ground was key to reaching their verdict. She told CNN's Anderson Cooper in an interview that neither second-degree murder nor manslaughter applied in Zimmerman's case "because of the heat of the moment and the 'stand your ground.' He had a right to defend himself. If he felt threatened that his life was going to be taken away from him or he was going to have bodily harm, he had a right."
But then you've shown a remarkable ignorance of the facts in this case.

<quoted text>Honestly DB, I'm known as a k.o artist in my city. Given that title, dudes don't want to shoot the hands. Chances are high they'll be k.o'ed trying to throw hands with myso, if an altercation breaks out, how do you think this fight will likely go? Whether on your feet or, on the ground, it's still a fair fight because, it's 1on1. You know like u know DB, if your son walked to the store & on his way back, was killed. Then his murderer confesses that he stalked, hunted & killed your son, you would not call it justice if that murderwe walks! See that's the whole point, Zimmerman instigated the whole scenario. He stalked Martin, which is the basis for 3rd degree murder with the underlining felony stalking. Now for him to admit to stalking & murder & do no time is not justice. People keep posting these articles of the Martin-Zimmerman case in reverse like mythought process will change. The wrong &injustice is equally the same in all situations with the same scenario, the shooter as the aggressor of the whole thing!
If my son walked to the store to get ingredients for a codeine cocktail to drink at my house and was killed when he started a fight, I'd consider myself a terrible parent.
End of story.

You obviously have no experience fighting. Stop embarrassing yourself.

Seems to be lots to the story of the unsuperivised not having been heard.

Can understand however, why TM's male parental unit would feel intense guilt...and why his mother would probably like to swift boat him to an island worm farm for the clueless.

Yeah, the violence involved in banging anyone's head on concrete, in the dark, with people hollering to "knock it off" just yards away, is pretty thuggishly foul.
Somewhere along the lines, you dudes got it twisted. There's nothing thuggish about a fistfight! As men, our testosterone runs high, which in itself is aggressive nature. There's 3 levels in this world, mental, spiritual, & the last is physical. When 2 people feel as though they've exhausted every other ave, the only thing left is physical. Most of the time, the 2 fighting ends up friend after the fight with a greater respect for each other, knowing how far & what buttons to push on each other. A fight is not over because a person is knocked down. As for banging Zimmerman's head on the concrete, total bullshit! It's more likely be was slammed & his head hit the concrete. If a man allows someone to sit on their chest &, bang their head on the ground, they deserve it! Especially if that person is a 16yrold kid. The whole scenario is of a bully, picking on a smaller kid &, that smaller kid whips the bullies ass. Does the bully now have the right to kill the smaller kid?

You keep posting that dumshit about a codeine cocktail, all false! The good drink "lean" is made by mixing Sprite, Jolly Ranchers, & promethizine with codeine. You're a fucking liar DB!
As far as fighting, I don't got to prove to you on a internet thread my fighting skills. I know my handle. I was in my teens putting grown men to sleep. Teens, 14-15-16 yrs old. Never lost a fight. Say my name in my city & see the response you get &, I have had a fight in over 10 yrs. You evidently haven't & can't fight because, if your hands are better than mines, trust me, we're gonna lock ass! This fight will end up on the ground. There is no rules in a fair fight, beon the usual, no weapons, no jumping rulesx! I don't care if a person fights karate against a street fighter, it's fair, 1on1, man against man!

You see that line in the sand?

Do NOT cross it.

Bullies don't get that kind of thing-and think it's okay to jump others just because they feel like it.

Appreciate your restraint in not resorting to the ignorance of juvenile sandbox levels of attacking a person personally for having their own opinion, sandbox slinging while stating the same.
You have my empathy for possibly having to drive an northeastern I95 corridor on a regular basis :-).

Good Morning *Patriots*...

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name.
Thy kingdom come.
THY WILL BE DONE,
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom
and the power
and the glory,
forever and ever.

Amen †

"I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America,
and to the republic
for which it stands,
one nation
under God,
indivisible,
with liberty and justice for all."
