Lmao!
Conservatives can think for themselves. They don't need FOX NEWS to think for them. But in a way, you're right. FOX is trying to get through to the weak minded fools (liberals).
It's not FOX's views that have lost elections for Republicans. It's Republicans running candidates barely more conservative than the Democrats.
It was the liberal media that picked the candidates for the Reps. Then as soon as they had the nomination they began tearing them down. The Reps were gullible enough to think if they ran a slightly left candidate they could win. The last time a bunch of conservatives stayed home.

Exactly! You would think after the libs did it with McCain, the Reps would have wised up.

And just because he killed Martin, it doesn't necessarily equate to murdering him. A TON of evidence supports Zimmerman's claim that he shot Martin in self-defense. And that is called "reasonable doubt" in the eyes of the law. The jury must find him guilty BEYOND reasonable doubt. Hell, there is still a question as to if this will ever go to trial.
That's what the justice system is for.

There's really good evidence he committed a crime...

... there's a dead body. There is no "ton of evidence" son. Most of the ones in Zimmerman's favor hinges on his testimony... and he's already proven he's a liar.

And I also agree this many never reach trial. OTOH, O'Mara keeps postponing the syg hearing, which is curious for someone who claims to be innocent.
Yeah

In a word...bullshit.
1. No evidence that Zimmerman "chased" Martin. Also, not against the law to follow someone to determine what they may be up to.
2. Zimmerman was perfectly legal to carry a concealed weapon (he had a license from the state of FL to do so).
3. The gun wasn't fired until AFTER Martin was bashing Zimmerman's head into a concrete sidewalk.(eye witness to the fact as well as physical injuries to the back of Zimmerman's head cooberate this)
4. Martin was the first to initiate the conversation between the two (M's girlfriend's testimony backs this)
5. No physical injuries to Martin other than a single GSW. A broken nose, blackened eyes, and cuts to the back of Z's head all bolster Z's claim that he was attacked by Martin.
6. If you initiate an attack on someone, you are NOT a "victim".
Try again.
lol! So far you're the one offering bullsh*t son...

1. No evidence that Zimmerman "chased" Martin. Also, not against the law to follow someone to determine what they may be up to
Ans: Sure he did. He got out of his vehicle with a loaded weapon to chase Martin after he ran.
.
2. Zimmerman was perfectly legal to carry a concealed weapon (he had a license from the state of FL to do so).
Ans: No argument there. Though he did so as his self appointed community law enforcement.
.
3. The gun wasn't fired until AFTER Martin was bashing Zimmerman's head into a concrete sidewalk.(eye witness to the fact as well as physical injuries to the back of Zimmerman's head cooberate this)
Ans: This is what Zimmerman claimed. It's not a fact.
.
4. Martin was the first to initiate the conversation between the two (M's girlfriend's testimony backs this)
Ans: Again, this is Zimmerman's claim. Not a fact.
.
5. No physical injuries to Martin other than a single GSW. A broken nose, blackened eyes, and cuts to the back of Z's head all bolster Z's claim that he was attacked by Martin.
Ans: Zimmerman could have fallen. I've seen head wounds worse in a retail store.
.
6. If you initiate an attack on someone, you are NOT a "victim".
Try again.
Ans: If Zimmerman stayed in his vehicle, everything would have been fine. Zimmerman initiated the chase after Martin ran AWAY from him. Looking from an objective position outside, one could say Martin was running from his assailant.

Try again....
Yeah

Martin is not a victim. That's like saying the robber who robbed a store and was shot to death was a victim.
Really son? So you'll need to explain why in your scenario the store owner isn't charged but in this case, Zimmerman is.

You've jumped to conclusions without thinking.
Yeah

Fox is the reason? I thought Palin was the reason, and then Limbaugh was the reason, or gay marriage was the reason, or wars in Iraq and Afghanistan was the reason, or sticking up for the wealthy was the reason. or Romney was the reason, or the war on women was the reason.
Sure are a lot of reasons out there. I guess it has nothing to do with the vastly expanding dependency rolls DumBama created. Naah, it couldn't be that. It has to be because of Fox.
lol! When you listen to how fart news reports those events, all I can do is roll my eyes and laugh.

It's amazing they believe their own garbage.
