CLUE? You betcha bubbs but you will need to go back to my last 10 posts-- Pick up the first word of the 3rd sentence Add it to the last word of the 2nd sentence contained in the 2nd paragraph
of my 3rd post.
You've never heard of the "roaming dot" code key? Instead of the standard fixed "first word of of the 3rd sentence, add it to the last work of the 2nd sentence contained in the 2nd paragraph"yada, yada......through the use of dots (periods), the key is constantly in rotation. It makes the code much more difficult to detect...

Nice to know the NSA is keeping this all on record somewhere.
Maybe the jury will see right thru this poorly prosecuted case. Many specific points that belie GZ's story were merely mentioned in passing. Dare they say to themselves, that head wasn't beat on no concrete, that coat/jeans/jacket of GZ's wasn't supine in the wet grass, GZ didn't wiggle 30+ feet, that blood wasn't there during the tussle? Dare they say the SOB should have never got out of his car? There was a reason he did.....
We'll see how the closing goes. Every quilt can be stitched to create a hodgepodge of shapes or the perfect picture.

I'm astonished at the vigorous fight to save this slob's hide knowing they don't have enough faith in the defendant to let him speak. They seem driven by hate for blacks and the same little man fear that they're all toast unless they pack heat.
I bet the LGBT community is embarrassed to have O'Mara as a member.
Racist.

They don't hate blacks. There are a lot of facts in this case...none of which show any hatred towards blacks whatsoever.

Should also mention that his father is a righty.
Did you notice that George's best friends are all much older than he and Shellie?
I wonder if Lucy Arnaz checks the Hispanic box?
Either you're not an American or you've never completed a US census. Hispanic is a ethnicity, their race is white......similar to Italian is an ethnicity, their race is white.....a French is an ethnicity, their race is white.....

Notice under "race" one or more boxes may be checked? How stastics determine the percentage of racial mix, I have no idea, because it certainly cannot be accurate in totalling up various ethnicities to form 100% of the population. Is an American of mixed black/white ancestry only supposed to tick "black", as well as "white" only if that racial mix is identifable thought their skin colour? If so, what percentage of "black" Americans are actually "white"?

http://www.kpbs.org/news/2013/jan/09/census-a...

What a mess! It makes one wonder how many hundreds of years will it take before the identity of "American" becomes an ethnicity as opposed to merely a nationality.

He didn't profile. If he'd told the dispatcher there is a suspicious looking black in my neighborhood, MAYBE...but he never even mentioned race until asked by the dispatcher. You have no proof he profiled ANYBODY.

BTW, do you know the facts in this case? Have you heard the tapes? If not, maybe that's why you seem so misinformed.

What is your reason for the emphasis on skin pigment as opposed to eye colour or hair colour, height or weight?

Frankly, I don't get it. Obviously nobody here spends any time at beaches or resorts where it is obvious how many "white" people spend many hours a day laying prone to the sun so that by the end of their vacation or summer their skin is darker than many "blacks".

In your world is suntanning evil too?

I mean really, how dumb is that - on one hand we're a society where it's desirable for "white" people to make our skin darker, if not intentional spend any time outdoors and tanning aka darker skin happens naturally....... on the other you think this world is rife with racial hatred of "whites" toward "blacks".

And I suppose you think it's only a coincidence that people from the hottest countries closest to the equator have the darkest skin? Let's conduct an experiment and put you there for a few thousand years and see how genetic mutation impacts your lily whiteness!

Police dispatcher can only make suggestions...not give orders. They have no authority.

Can you sue for "ignorance?" I know a few people who better be more careful!

So much for the storyline that lessor charges are automatic. If the state thought they had a case for lessor charges, that's what GZ should have been charges with in the first place!

In the real world, a Prosection's argument for lesser charges to 2nd degree murder should be all the PROOF required for an ACQUITTAL by The State's admission it didn't prove it's case! The difference between the elements of the various degrees of causing death of another person are very clear - it's impossible for The State TO PROVE to a jury EITHER "this or that", beyond a reasonable doubt without asking them to speculate or guess which one.

Judge considers lesser charges in Zimmerman case

SANFORD, Fla.-- State prosecutors are asking the judge in the Trayvon Martin murder case Thursday morning to instruct jurors to consider lesser charges – manslaughter and aggravated assault – when they begin deliberations.

Zimmerman's attorneys have objected, and Judge Debra Nelson is holding a hearing to decide whether jurors should consider the new charges. The jury would still have the option of convicting Zimmerman, 29, of the second-degree murder charge that prosecutors sought when the trial began.

Which also proves the young man with the BEIGE pants at the 7-11 store is not the same person described as wearing DARK COLOURED clothing. And since eye-witnesses testifying to the two engaged in battle were able to distinquish one man wore a RED coat, there was enough light for them to have been able to notice the other man wore BEIGE pants, if that had been the case.
