Did you listen to the interview?
"Stand you ground" is an absolute defense against civil suits, just as is the Castle Doctrine in several states.
Which interview?

The right is busy affirming that Stand Your Ground had no bearing on the case.

Did the police check Trayvon's residence for cough syrup?
So, now the Zimmerman losers of the world are on a mission to kill everyone who takes cough syrup.
Where was Zimmermans blood tests showing he was on anti depressants and xanax?

If Trayvon had killed Zimmerman, he would have had the same opportunity to present his case, assuming he was charged.
But the case would have received zero publicity.
So self-defense only applies if you kill your attacker???

You can't escape the fact that your racism forces you not to afford Martin the same rights your afford Zimmerman.

<quoted text>George clearly provoked the confrontation by following the teen the width of the community in his truck and then for a short distance on foot. In his own words George stated that he never made any attempt to engage the youth from his vehicle and never made an attempt to introduce himself when the two somehow found themselves within arms reach of one another.
George also said he was reaching into his jacket pocket for his phone when the teen decked him. Trayvon, without a clue what George had in his pocket was supposed to be a mind reader.
Interestingly the shot was fired over thirty feet from where George claims the teen decked him.
The jury identified more with George than they did with Trayvon. The details didn't mean sht.

I'm tickled pink the key players in the IRS scandal will be testifying again.

And investigations continue about the incompetency surrounding Benghazi...because if "it isn't addressed now, it could happen again."

The focus of our attention is finally back where it belongs.

Zimmerman told police he killed Martin after the teen rebuffed his homosexual advances. While the evidence at the time corroborated that claim, the ex-chief said, Lee's lead investigator made a recommendation that Zimmerman be charged with attempted rape and manslaughter.
A lot of the information that was taken from Zimmermans computer and phone related to homosexual sex and 2000 photos of nude photos of young black males, he said. "

George Zimmerman just walked away a free man, but the family of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old he killed, may still yet see Zimmerman on a witness stand.

The 29-year-old former neighborhood watch volunteer was acquitted Saturday of all criminal charges in the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teen who was walking home from a convenience store.

Case closed? Not quite.

Zimmerman may still yet face a wrongful death suit from the Martin family, the family's lawyer, Benjamin Crump, said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday.

After O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murder in the deaths of his ex-wife and her friend in 1995, the families sued the football star in civil court. A jury held Simpson liable for the deaths and awarded them $33.5 million dollars.

Though the victims' families received almost none of that money, many considered it a symbolic victory for them. They got to see Simpson try to explain himself under oath. They also prevented him from profiting from his notoriety.

To be sure, Zimmerman may also face federal charges, if the Justice Department thinks it can pursue hate crime charges.

However, a civil trial would offer the Martin family two big advantages: They might be able to force Zimmerman to testify, and the burden of proof is much lower.

To win in a criminal trial, prosecutors need to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. Plaintiffs in a civil case do not have that burden.

"The standard of proof in a civil case -- by a preponderance of the evidence -- is much lower than the standard in a criminal case," Anne Bremner, a Seattle lawyer and legal analyst who has been closely following the Zimmerman case, told The Huffington Post.

Bremner has handled several high-profile civil cases, including those involving Mary Kay LeTourneau, a Washington schoolteacher who was imprisoned for having sexual intercourse with a student, and missing Utah mom Susan Cox Powell.

According to Bremner, additional evidence could be admitted in a civil case, and information about Zimmerman's prior run-ins with the law might be brought up. This would likely include the admission of a 2005 motion for a restraining order Zimmerman's ex-fiance filed, alleging domestic violence.

"You always get more information in a civil case," Bremner said.

While Zimmerman exercised his right not to testify at his criminal trial, a civil case could compel him to take the stand and explain what happened on Feb. 26, 2012 –- the day he shot and killed Martin.

"Zimmerman will have to testify unless he can take the Fifth, as there are the possible federal criminal charges. But by the time of a civil trial, any federal charges should be resolved. And, there are plenty of areas of questioning that will not implicate the privilege. There is [also] the possibility of the judge giving an instruction that the jury can draw a negative inference from any invocation," Bremner said -- meaning if Zimmerman doesn't testify, the jury would be allowed to consider that absence in a negative light.

And Liberals can not stand justice but want to impose their CONTROL!!!

No Liberal followed the case closely to see the facts, they, as always, are wrong once again!!!

I love when Liberals get hit in the face by reality!!! It is fun to watch!!

We Conservative know this is a typical SELF-DEFENSE incident. Liberals still looking for that elusive racist angle!!!

In the mean time, Trayvon Martin beat up Zimmerman because he believed, wrong as all Liberals, that Zimmerman was GAY!!!!

Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses

Quote:
The Nazi boycott of Jewish businesses in Germany took place on 1 April 1933, soon after Adolf Hitler was sworn in as Chancellor on 30 January 1933. The boycott was the first of many measures against the Jews of Germany, which ultimately culminated in the "Final Solution". It was a state-managed campaign of ever-increasing harassment, arrests, systematic pillaging, forced transfer of ownership to Nazi party activists (managed by the Chamber of Commerce) and ultimately murder of owners defined as "Jews". In Berlin alone, there were 50,000 Jewish owned businesses (almost 50% of all Berlin's private owned business) when the Nazis came to power. By 1945 they all had "Christian" owners.
