I'd just add....jury selection is of course, not random. But even so, given the demographics, whats the probablility of no white men, and no blacks at all? Would the government, in a case with national, even presidential, visibility really seat a 100% non-black jury if they felt strongly that Zimmerman would get off with nothing at all? Yeah, I wish the answer was yes, that race played no part.....but is that likely in today's political environment?
A fox commentator had an interesting take on it.

Seems he/she felt this was possibly the worst make up possible... not from a legal perspective but from a public perspective because of the racial slant that's being given.

I wasn't sure this was a good idea when I first heard the make up, but I'm beginning to see the implications...

... and none of it is good.

I CANNOT BELIEVE the simple fact that when you raise taxes on business, its the customers (or the employees) that bear that burden.......is LOST within the liberal mind.
To be sure: the rich are never going to pay their fair of taxes, look at the draft dodger Romney who pays less than 14 percent.

At least the consumer can make a decision where he/she is ging to shop, and if the business tries to make the customer pick up the tab for it share of supporting this country, the customer can at least shop next door.

Not quite an ideal jury, but at least no ghetto rats who would convict no matter what.
No fat white crackers like yourself that would let pedophile run loose no matter what.

Bigots like yourself.

Putting aside... felons don't serve jury duty.

Dude, you raise all the well worn aruments. First define rich, then define fair share. The top 5% pays like 58% of the total taxes collected.....is thats not enough.......where do we draw the line? With Mitt Romney, he paid something like 14% in taxes, but his charitable contributions were enormous. Combining taxes and charity, he paid 42%.....again, huge. And legal.....thats what the tax code accomodates, to encourage charitable contributions. And yeah he had college deferments, but he was never drafted. And really, you have to know that if Burger King raised thier hourly salary by 120% like the unions are pushing for, the price of that whopper has got to go up. So you, and me, choose to stay away. Jobs are lost, and the very people that the idea was supposed to help, are out on the street.

as long as our laws are well represented during this deal, we'll be OK. By the way, thanks for some of the intell on the Big Island. Oahu is too crowded for us, and the climate options on Hawaii just got me hooked. Too hot? Drive for 30 minutes and its 50 degrees. Same thing in reverse. I was stationed on Johnston Island for a year and caught a few ulua. Major fun, although you had to be careful.....the JA "lifers" had one that would swim up the boat ramp and take cheeseburgers out of your hand......he was not to be molested in any way.

It would be so much easier to show that you are a brain dead moron. Boca Raton has a 6.15 burglary rate per 1000. Sanford had 800 burglaries for 54,000 residents which computes to 14.8 burglaries per 1000. The fact is police had been called to the Retreat at Twin Lakes 260-unit complex 402 times from Jan 1, 2011 to Feb 26, 2012 which averages out to about once a day. Note also at the time of the shooting forty of the units were empty and half of the units were occupied by renters.

//////////

The homeowners association's February newsletter said that Sanford police had beefed up patrols in the neighborhood and that officers on bicycles were making random checks of front yards and backyards.

The screaming didn't take place while they were on the ground. Trayvon was begging for his life, for someone to help him while Zimmerman was holding him at gunpoint. Taking careful aim. Then Zimmerman shot and murdered Trayvon. He was in no danger. He's just a gangsta thug. A short man with a short penis who had a Napoleon complex, or as the detective said "a little man complex".

The jurors "mothers" will be following jury instructions and using common sense. It doesn't make any sense to think of Trayvon screaming for help while he is overpowering George. Georges physical injuries support his account of what happened. There is no reason why Trayvon would be screaming for help. Self Defense..

Great info. Thats why i think the "profiling" word wont turn into a hurdle for the defense team to jump.

I believe when the jury here the reports as you listed ,,then they will understand why George was making a phone call to the non emergency police line. He didn't target any particular person. He was alert and called over anything resembling suspicion

Jackson says welfare, not slavery destroys black families

BY MARKUS SCHMIDT Richmond Times-Dispatch

At a Juneteenth event in Newport News, E.W. Jackson, the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, said that slavery did not destroy black families, but government welfare programs launched in the 1960s caused them to deteriorate.

I know it and I seen plenty of it around Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinatti, and other major metro areas which they choose to be lazy which I am glad the house killed that farm bill in name only which was a welfare bill so they didnt have to work.
