T-Bone Martin, like far too many young black men, wasn't able to control himself. He got himself killed by continuing to physically assault someone who obviously did not want to fight, and who was obviously in fear of his life. You don't keep attacking someone that is screaming for help.
T-Bone saw it as a weakness, and it only encouraged him to keep attacking. But it was a warning. He ignored it at his peril. T-Bone didn't think he had any limits on his own behavior. He learned the hard way that there are bounds you just don't cross.

Sounds about right. If Martin had stopped his assault he would still be alive today though probably in jail charged with aggravated battery.

lol! Idiot....

"Second Amendment and the U.S. Constitution

Dershowitz is strongly opposed to firearms ownership and the Second Amendment, and supports repealing the amendment, but he vigorously opposes using the judicial system to read it out of the Constitution because it would open the way for further revisions to the Bill of Rights and Constitution by the courts. "Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a public safety hazard don't see the danger in the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don't like."[45]"

"Support For The People's Mujahedin of Iran

On February 29, 2012, Dershowitz filed an Amicus Brief in support of the People's Mujahedin of Iran, also known as the MEK, a group designated by the State Department as a foreign terrorist organization.[52][53] The MEK was placed on the list for attacks on U.S. military personal and civilian contractors, and is believed responsible for the deaths of three U.S. Army officers, three U.S. civilian contractors, as well as the wounding of USAF General Harold Price, during an assassination attempt.[54][55]

The People's Mujahedin of Iran renounced violence in 2001.[56] However, a 2004 FBI report on the group states that, "MEK is currently actively involved in planning and executing acts of terrorism.”[57][58] Additionally, in 2009, seven people plead guilty to providing material support to the People's Mujahedin of Iran.[59][60]..."

"...Dershowitz is known for his involvement in several high-profile legal cases and as a commentator on the Arab–Israeli conflict. As a criminal appellate lawyer, he has won 13 of the 15 murder and attempted murder cases he has handled, and has represented a series of celebrity clients, including Mike Tyson, Patty Hearst, and Jim Bakker.[2] His most notable cases include his role in 1984 in overturning the conviction of Claus von Bülow for the attempted murder of his wife, Sunny, and as the appellate adviser for the defense in the O.J. Simpson trial in 1995.[3]..."

The truth shall set ye free:

MIAMI – The stack of evidence released last week in the second-degree murder case against George Zimmerman is notable, legal experts say, for what's not in it: firm evidence that Zimmerman acted with malice when he shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

Special prosecutor Angela Corey charged Zimmerman last month, alleging that Zimmerman, a neighborhood crime-watch volunteer, acted with ill will when he shot Martin, who was black, after a Feb. 26 scuffle behind some townhouses in a gated community in Sanford, Fla., where Martin was staying with his father.

But analysts say the evidence released so far contains little information to support the prosecutor's contention that Zimmerman acted with a "depraved mind" when he shot Martin - a standard the prosecution must meet if the murder charge is to stand.

"I still don't see any evidence yet of the elements of second-degree murder," said Miami defense attorney John Priovolos, a former prosecutor. The special prosecutor "has to prove ill will, hatred or spite. I don't see any evidence of his state of mind," he said.

Evidence was heard. The killer's attorney asked the judge if he could testify without being cross examined. Judge say no, he should be treated like any other defendant, no special treatment. Made me laugh.

Looks like the decision will come sometimes next week.

You didn't post nada. A person 21 and older have a right to refuse roadside testing including the non-evidentiary portable breath test. It doesn't really matter anyway, I beat my DUI, I refused these tests, but most "Americans" are so freaking stupid, they wouldn't know this. But anyway, I'll repost the information agains since it is factually correct, maybe it will help one person beat their Florida DUI accusation...
that may be so, but that still does not give you the right to post erronious material. A person may refuse field sobriety tests and the portable breath test in Florida, so long as they are 21 or older and not suffer any penalty as those tests are not required by law...
Here's what Florida DUI Attorneys Thomas & Paulk have to say about the matter of person 21 and older in the state of Florida and their right to refuse field sobriety tests and the non-evidentiary roadside Portable Breath Test
http://www.duiattorneystampabay.com/DUI/DUI_T ...
Roadside Breath Testing
A common question associated with driving under the influence is whether a driver must submit to a roadside breath test. The answer may vary depending on the specific circumstances. If a driver is under the age of 21 and is pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, he or she may face administrative license suspension for refusing a roadside breath test. Drivers who are 21 years of age or older, however, may refuse roadside breath testing without facing license suspension or criminal penalties. As every case is different, it is important to get detailed information that applies to your unique situation. An attorney can provide you with the insight you need to make informed decisions about your case.
Portable Breath Tests (Preliminary Alcohol Screening) in Florida
What is meant by a "roadside breath test"? In using this term, we are referring to a specific type of breath test administered before a driver is arrested for DUI. Often referred to as a preliminary alcohol screening (PAS) test, this type of test is typically administered using a portable device in the field, as opposed to a formal test conducted at the police station after a driver is taken into custody on suspicion of DUI.
While a driver in Tampa, Florida will most certainly face driver's license suspension and possibly criminal charges for refusing a formal breath test after his or her arrest, refusing a portable breath test is a different matter. Provided you are over the age of 21 and are not currently on probation for a previous DUI conviction, you most likely have the right to refuse a roadside breath test.
You idiot, give it up. No one cares. Start another thread. Please STFU.
