the witnesses & According to 15-year-old James Cervini, one of the three white kids, and Christopher’s cousin, Scott shot Christopher after the teen yelled,“Please don’t shoot me, I’m just a kid.” which proved there was no threat to Roderick Scott life and Roderick Scott the Black Man took justice into his own hands and got away with it.

That's your own inflamed stupidity. If I think you're an idiot it doesn't mean I think Obama's a saint. Obama came right out and said that unelected bureaucrats had the authority to order the execution of US citizens anywhere in the world without due process. In my opinion, he should be executed or at least tried for crimes against humanity for that.
I don't expect you to understand any of that.
You've said he's your hero many times.

Used logic, pretty much. Only one of them had a fractured nose, two black eyes and was overtaken.
I also happen to believe Zimmerman was telling the truth.
If you agree with the verdict, why do you keep splitting hairs?
Are you just trying to be argumentative? Or are you bored?
Ok, now we're getting somewhere.

Do you see the problem here?

You made several assumptions:

You assumed that since George had bruises Martin must have struck first. That doesn't mean that at all. I've thrown several first punches that didn't land but that doesn't mean I didn't start the fight.

You happen to believe Zimmerman. Even though he frequently contradicted his own statements you just believe him. Had you been able to hear Martin's side of the story what then?

So, you made some assumptions then stated repeatedly that an eyewitness had testified that Martin threw the first punch when in fact you had constructed that "fact" yourself.

So, you lied (I forgot the euphemism I had said I would use) so you have any idea why you lied?

It took him a while but Tits Magee grew up. He noticed right off that there were few career opportunities open to a man of his size so he took a few criminal justice courses at BU and did a ten year stint with the BPD which at least taught him that there was a pretty fine line between crime and punishment and, just for a lark, he chose to come down on the punishment side of the equation.

Tits met a lot of good people during his time on the force and made some loyal friends, but none so loyal as Lieutenant Richard Leggs who everybody referred to as Resles because once that fucker started movin' you'd better get out of his way.

Tits and Resles, Resles and Tits, after the first three months at the station they were inseparable. Nobody dared make any joke about the closeness of their relationship, they just left it alone and tried to look down whenever one or the other of them passed them in the hall or on the street or in a bar. That was a lot of beef to have bearing down on you so the entire force deferred to the two men without fail. See that? Sometimes even stupid people make the right decisions.

There are three ongoing investigations - the Senate Finance Committee, the House Ways and Means Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
To which are you referring as not having found any political motivation since the findings won't be revealed for another month or so?
So?

The Republican dogs hounded Clinton for 6 years before they finally coerced him into lying to Congress and that's ALL they could stick him with.

Your side is retarded and really just need to start doing their job and their principle purpose is NOT to unseat Democrats. Their JOB, the JOB they were elected to do is GOVERN not try to win Congressional seats and the White House which is ALL THEY FCKN DO!!!!!

How fckn' stupid are you?????

Ethical issue possibly but with a decent lawyer not guilty.

"A 19-year-old driver who crashed into a utility pole in Valley Village has been ordered to stand trial for manslaughter in the deaths of two women who tried to come to his aid, only to be electrocuted by downed power lines.
Arman Samsonian of Glendale slammed his sport utility vehicle into a light pole and nearby fire hydrant last Aug. 22. After the violent crash, two women ran toward the SUV to render aid, officials said.
Both of the would-be rescuers, Irma Zamora and Stacey Schreiber, were killed instantly when they stepped into a pool of water that had been electrified by 4,800 volts from the fallen power line.
Six others were injured when they also made contact with the water and were shocked.
On Wednesday, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge ruled that there was enough evidence for Samsonian to be tried on two felony counts of vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence.
“He was definitely driving negligently, he definitely had disregard for others,” Superior Court Judge Karen Nudell said.
She made the ruling after witnesses took the stand to relay the horrible, fast-moving events of that summer night."
Agree completely, if he was guilty of gross negligence then he's guilty of manslaughter.

Interesting that you and one of your fellow leftists completely disagree. Galt agrees with you, but the judge does not and wants the case to move ahead.
I'm often at odds with people on the left as I try to base my opinions on rules of law, not emotions. According to the definition of manslaughter, the judge's decision to try the case has merit.

As the Deputy District Attorney argued, the driver was guilty of gross negligence and wanton disregard for others.
“Speeding down a crowded road in a lane you’re not supposed to be in is inherently dangerous.“The defendant should have foreseen the harm that could happen.”

“He was definitely driving negligently,” the judge concluded at the hearing’s end.“He had disregard for others. He made a terrible turn. That was a grossly negligent act.”

"Vehicular manslaughter committed with gross negligence without the driver being under the influence of drugs or alcohol may be punishable by a term in the county jail for not more than one year or in the case of more serious matters of a state prison term for two, four, or six years."

The law is the law. Guess we'll have to wait and see what a jury decides....sound familiar?
