Speaking of not knowing the facts...
Trayvon Martin's father LIVED in that gated community. Allegedly that was where Trayvon was headed after purchasing a drink and some skittles at the store he'd visited moments before dying. Since when is it trespassing to be in YOUR father's gated community?
It doesn't matter what Trayvon was up to anyway as trespass isn't punishable by the death penalty.
Now who is it that looks stupid? And while you're stewing on that one kindly point out where I've defended Trayvon's actions. Two wrongs don't make a right.
And we don't really know what Trayvon did as we only have Zimmerman's account of the events preceding the shooting. A lot went down prior to the presence of any witnesses. They came out after the altercation started. What we do know is that the police told Zimmerman not to follow him WAY before anything happened. What we've got from Zimmerman is that he exited his vehicle to determine a street name and a street address. Quite odd for a resident of a neighborhood that is out on a neighborhood watch to need to do that, doncha think?

Zimmerman followed him quite a ways after being told not to do so.
Two wrongs don't make a right. Not that we know Trayvon was up to any wrong doing. From the map the only real thing one can tell is that he was walking from the store to his father's home. Was he up to no good? We'll never know because he isn't around to give his version of what happened. Zimmerman saw to that.
Trayvon had a record so did Zimmerman. From where I sit that doesn't justify killing anyone.
Trayvons family and friends didn't help his case, they were all caught in lies. the entire aliby was a lie, you are probably sitting on the toilet because your explanation stinks and the jury is smarter than you. Try again ... lol RIP Trayvon

A news story from today:

The UK Is About to Legalize Gay Marriage

Gay marriage is a formality away from becoming British law after both houses of Parliament signed off on a bill that would allow LGBT couples in England and Wales to marry starting next summer.

The bill is waiting for a "royal assent" from Queen Elizabeth II, expected within the next few days, before it's officially law. That's after the House of Commons decided on Tuesday to agree to a number of small amendments made to the bill by the House of Lords, the unelected upper house of the U.K. Parliament.

The U.K's conservative Prime Minister David Cameron introduced the initiative to legalize gay marriage in the country, and the bill had the support of leaders from more or less every major British political party, though Cameron's Conservative party has been pretty split on the issue. But, illuminating the divisions in the country over the gay marriage issue, the scope of the measure is somewhat limited. For one thing, it won't apply in Northern Ireland or Scotland (Scottish Parliament is independently considering their own gay marriage bill). And the Church of England won't perform same-sex marriage ceremonies according to the new law. The CoE dropped its official opposition to the bill in June, citing its broad base of political support. Other religious organizations may "opt in" to performing the ceremonies.

As the BBC notes, the bill also includes protections for married individuals who identify as transgender. Gay marriage supporters in the country (not to mention in the legislature) will now focus on determining whether humanists will be allowed to perform marriages, and what the implications of same-sex marriages will be on the country's pension schemes. Those outstanding issues, and the time it'll take to resolve them, are why officials expect nearly a year-long delay in the start of same sex marriages after the bill becomes law this week.

Oh Lordy, don't tell Kimare. Zher Depends (brand undergarments) are already filled after the recent SCOTUS decision.

What alibi? That isn't my explanation dum dum. What I wrote were facts. Try learning the difference.

Fact: Trayvon had been to the store (evidence exists to support this).

Fact: He was returning to his father's residence, ergo he wasn't trespassing. That sums up what he was doing.

Fact: Zimmerman was told to not follow Trayvon.

Fact: Zimmerman continued to follow him well beyond the point he was instructed to back off.

Fact: Trayvon had a history of unacceptable behavior. He had two suspensions under his belt. One for possession of stolen jewelry and a "burglary tool" and one for possession of an empty plastic bag with pot residue and a pipe.

Fact: Zimmerman had a violent past. Two resisting arrest events one deemed non-violent and one deemed violent and one domestic violence. All three swept inexplicably under the rug. Also a fact: his father was a judge.

I wouldn't want either of them in my neighborhood.

Simple enough for you?

Speaking of lies, you insisted Trayvon was trespassing. He wasn't as I pointed out earlier. Unless you think being in your parent's neighborhood is trespassing.

I suspect your reply won't rebut any of the above facts, it'll just be more childish garbage. You've got nothing of substance to say.

Agreed. Kimare is a miserable old man who has no life other than copying and pasting the same troll-posts over and over on multiple threads on Topix.
You mean like these 'troll-posts':

At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior.

Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

Ss couples will only ever be a mutually sterile, duplicate gendered half of marriage.

ss marriage is an oxymoron.

A troll is someone who attacks the messenger rather than the message. Something both VV and you just did.

Like your troll posts?

at its most basic essence marriage is a legal contract recognized by local government

A troll is someone that attacks the messenger letting you know that Same sex marriage is legal, recognized on both the state and federal level.

Sterility is moot as the ability or intent to have children has never ever been a requirement for a marriage

Did you really assert that the basic essence of marriage is a contract?

Do you understand how that exposes the idiocy of calling SS couples married?

Thanks for making my point.

Of course it is troll

a legal contract, that is what a marriage certificate is, each person defines their own marriage on a personal level. Some relish one another, some put up with one another, some are partnerships, some are a oppression of one over the other, some are religious, some are not.

No marriages are dependent on what other people that feel different think of yours

Do you understand the idiocy of your constantly mentioning sterility when the ability or intent to have children has never been a requirement for a marriage?

Thank you for making mine

That's not what you claimed. You said the essence of marriage is a contract.

As utterly ridiculous as removing the natural fruit of a marriage.
