And yet you feverishly kiss the azz of GI Janie who

1) Has a prolific history of violence including:

a) 3 resisting arrest and assault and battery charges against law enforcement officers - stayed because GI Janie enrolled in a Pretrial Diversionary program
b) Vicious assault of a FEMALE bar patron resulting in his termination of employment of the club he was bouncing for. Had to take an Alcohol Education program to beat THAT rap.
c) Domestic violence resulting in restraining order issued against him
d) Continuous rape of a minor female - still being investigated.

2) Has a prolific history of lying including:
a) The night GI Jane killed Trayvon Martin he told police that he had a clean record ... heh heh heh! ya... right!
b) When GI Janie was booked into the Seminole County Jail, he told the booking officer that he had never been in a pretrial diversion program before, but he had.
c) When Thug Zimmerman offered an apology to Trayvon's family during an April 20 bond hearing, he said he didn't realize Trayvon was so young. But in his call to police moments before the shooting he described Trayvon, who was 17, as in his "late teens."
d) Both GI Jane and his wife, GI Joe, lied directly to the courts saying they had no savings… when in fact they had $135,000 in blood money donations. Proven when confronted with his taped jail house phone call to his wife instructing her how to "hide" the money.
e) In his initial statement to the police, GI Jane tells police that “Martin” jumped out at him from the bushes. Stuck by that story, until police told him “there were no bushes”. Story changed.
f) In is initial statement to the police, GI Jane tells police that when he and Martin came face to face on that sidewalk, Martin said, "What the (expletive)(is) your problem, homey?" That statement gradually morphed into: You, you got a problem? Trayvon’s girlfriend, who was on the phone with him, heard Trayvon say:“Why are you following me for?”
g) In is statement, GI Jane tells police that when he told 911 dispatch he was losing sight of Trayvon, that 911 dispatch told him to move the car to get a better view. On police review of the 911 tape, no such conversation occurred.
h) When answering the question, why did you get out of your truck. Brainiac GI Jane told police that he was going in the same direction as Trayvon… to get the name of the street he was on. Police, to this day, are still wondering HOW you don’t know the name of the only three streets in his neighbourhood…. where he has lived for 3 YEARS.
i) Injuries sustained in the struggle come no where near the severity of the described attack.(Getting your head banged on the pavement would surely have resulted in skull fracture… bone bruising at the absolute bare minimum.)
j) No defensive wounds on GI Jane hardly indicate a LIFE AND DEATH struggle.
k) Crime scene photos show Martin's body was a significant distance south toward the house where Martin was staying and NOT where Zimmerman claimed during his re-enactment for the police.

3) Has a prolific history of stupidity:
a) A resident, who attended an emergency homeowner's association meeting after the shooting on March 1, told reporters how one man was escorted out because he openly expressed his frustration because he had previously contacted the Sanford Police Department about Zimmerman approaching him and even coming to his home.
b) FORTY-SIX count'em... FORTY-SIX 911 calls in the past to report such horrendous crimes like... kids at a pool making too much noise, a kid pulling a wheelie on his bike, kids playing on the street after school, a neighbour leaving his garage door open!! ROTFALMFAO!
c) Instructs his beauty queen on how to hide money from the courts ON A MONITORED JAIL PHONE!

Whenever the accused has a solid self-defense(SYG)position no judge will deny it and will grant it and declare case closed in that regard.
When defendant has the law, issue, and facts on his side a judge is compelled to recognize it so that an Appeal does not happen making judge look bad on legal matters. No judge wants that. If Zimmerman had the goods the judge would have set him free. He knew he didn't have a complete self-defense claim to go before a judge with, so they chose to present it to a jury who may be more flexible in interpreting the law.
Anyone with a solid self-defense claim based in law wants to have it heard before a judge, a person trained to know the law.
BS.

"In other words -- at least from a true legal analysis -- the police had no evidence contrary to the case being one of self defense -- and the only open issue was whether Zimmerman used "excessive force" (which would be manslaughter -- not second degree murder)-- and that at the time of the initial investigation (and probably now)-- law enforcement didn't have any evidence that controverted Zimmerman suffering "great bodily harm" (the broken nose)-- nor -- did they have any evidence contrary to his assertion that he was in reasonable fear of further serious injury or death."

According to criminal defense lawyers, you are full of crap. If you are in my neighborhood and I think you are acting suspiciously I have the legal right to follow you. If you decide to initiate a physical confrontation by punching me in the face and breaking my nose and then pound my head on the ground,you are the aggressor and you have committed a forcible felony. If the victim of a forcible felony is in fear of great bodily harm or death, Florida law says deadly force may be used to stop that forcible felony.
A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in any other place where he or she has a right to be has no duty to retreat, and has the right to stand his or her ground, and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself ,herself or another, or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.
FS 776.013(3)
Sucker punching a person and Breaking his nose is a forcible felony and the assault on Zimmerman went on for over forty seconds.

I believe Martin was the one found with two of the three ingredients necessary to make "Lean", the poor man's PCP, and his autopsy revealed traces of the use of illegal marijuana . In addition both his brain and liver had conditions which are indicators of damage that could have been caused by regular use of DXM, the kicker ingredient in Lean.Martin was a drug addict and his Twitter account suggests he was also a dealer.

Five-year-old boy accidentally shoots, kills sister

By Matthew DeLuca, Staff Writer, NBC News
A 5-year-old Kentucky boy who received a .22-caliber rifle as a gift accidentally shot and killed his 2-year-old sister on Tuesday, according to state police.

Follow @NBCNewsUS

The toddler was shot at just after 1 p.m. local time on Lawson’s Bottom Road in Cumberland County, police said. The girl was taken to Cumberland County Hospital and later pronounced dead.

The mother of the two children was at home at the time of the shooting, Cumberland County Coroner Gary White told the local newspaper, the Lexington Herald-Leader. He said that the family did not realize that there was a shell inside the gun. The firearm was kept in a corner, he said.

“It’s a Crickett,” Cumberland County Coroner Gary White told the paper.“It’s a little rifle for a kid.”

“The little boy’s used to shooting the little gun,” White said.

The shooting occurred while the boy was playing with the rifle, police said. It was “just one of those crazy accidents,” White told the Herald-Leader.

Changes nothing. If defense thought they had a complete self-defense they would have rushed to go before a judge so Zimmerman could be a free man today. They know their self-defense position is weak and that is why O'mara stayed away from a judge and immunity hearing. A judge will follow the law so that a chance for appeal is avoided. No judge likes to have their decision overturned. The judge will follow the law and the defense did not want that. They would rather take their chances before a jury with the hope they can persuade and influence the jury to accept their weak position. The defense running from the judge and defense law speaks for itself.

Lean is highly addictive cocktail of cough syrup, cold medicine, alcohol and candy. So..... other than a bag of skittles.... what else did he have on him??? Well... let's see... Iced tea ... hmmmm..... Iced Tea isn't cough syrup. Iced tea isn't cold medicine.... AND Iced tea isn't alcohol. Gee, dumbazz.... that's only ONE of not three but FOUR. So... you snot nosed imbred racist jackazz... are we to assume that ANYONE with a bag of skittles is a Lean addict??!!! ROTFALMFAO!!! Cryst... the KKKlan is truly desperate today!! And, btw dumbazz.... the autopsy showed no such thing!

Nice to know Democrats support Obama and his lies ..er... fantasies.

"What I find more interesting are the lies Obama tells not so much about himself, but about society. In “Dreams from My Father,” Obama tells readers that he struggled with racism and racial alienation all his life. He wasn’t a starter on his high school basketball team because he played “black” while his coach coached “white.” He confabulated a black friend in high school who, like himself, was shunned for racial reasons. He wrote of a “big fight” with a white ex-girlfriend who, after seeing a racially charged play,“started talking about why black people were so angry all the time.”

As Maraniss methodically shows, these and other tales of racial woe were false. His coach didn’t start him because he wasn’t good enough to start. His friend in high school was half-Japanese, not black, and neither of them were racially ostracized. The girlfriend, Genevieve Cook, never saw the play and never said anything of the sort. And so on."
