<quoted text>It's called southern justice. When a white person kills a unarmed black person in the south, if calling it a "suicide" won't close the file, then they call it "self-defense" like the Sanford police did. It may be 2013 on the rest of the world's calendars, but the backward whites in southern states are still living in the 1860's and hate yankees almost as much as they hate blacks
Looks like the Sanford Police had it right. Self defense=NOT GUILTY. find a real cause to cry about.

Doesn't it seem the least bit unusual that liberal thugs went in and installed their own law enforcement,judge and prosecuters and they still couldn't get a conviction?
Nice to know you still need a little thing called evidence in a court of law.
Let alone, their own version of events, broadcast 24/7 on HLN, MSNBC and CNN.....and still could'nt overcome the truth......

Drive-bys must be common in Manhattan - like hit-and-runs.

Maybe just the runs.

Gotta be careful with those soft pretzels - no telling where they've been.

<quoted text>Be smart fella. If the FBI had confirmed their opinions of a year ago, they would not be examining all of the evidence NOW even as we speak. Would you like a copy of the media outlets info wherein the FBI asked for the case transcripts and all of the evidence?
Why would a top flight LE organization like the FBI need the help of a podunk state prosecutor?

In short - they don't. They can access far more resources than any state investigator, and would provide the prosecutor with that evidence without being asked.

As for holding the firearm - it would already have been ballastics tested by either a state or federal facility and there would be no need for that.

This is a DoJ fishing expedition, straight from Obama and Holder.

You have no idea what you are talking about.

The facts are Zimmerman had no business or authority to stalk, harass or shoot a black kid. The facts are the forensic evidence and ME's reports do not support Zimmerman's statement to the police claiming that Martin jumped him, knocked him to the ground, punched him the face "20 or 30 times", and slammed his head against the concrete repeatedly. The facts are Zimmerman's clothes didn't have any mud, dirt, or debris on them and the EMT reports says Zimmerman had a minor scratch on his nose and a small cut on the back of his head with only minor superficial bleeding. The facts don't support Zimmerman's ridiculous claim of self-defense against a black kid with no history of aggressive or violent behavior. The facts are Zimmerman had an extensive history of aggressive and violent behavior involving attacking women and cops plus court ordered anger management classes.
The FBI is still investigating Zimmerman and hasn't cleared him of anything.
The case is open and ongoing, bubba....

As I said before, how low are you shameless right-wingers willing to stoop just to smear a dead black kid?

You just don't get it. Florida is such an azzbackwards State that they deemed it OK to stalk Black people kill them and them get away with it by claiming self defense.
Every black person should arm themselves and be the one claiming self defense.
THIRTY percent of SYG cases are broght BY and FOR black Floridians. of which, they only make up 12% or less of the State's population.

ergo, blacks in Fl use SYG more than TWICE their numbers as reprsented by the Census.

I'd say that makes SYG a BLACK-FRIENDLY LAW....

The audacity to ask for a better jury.
That punk-thug Trayvon Martin is lucky he even got a trial at all, which the trial proved once and for all to the racebaiters out there, that there wasn't any evidence to convict ZMan of murder or even manslaughter.
It cost 3 million dollars to ram this point home even though the Sanford PD knew ZMan acted in self defense.
You whiners had your trial.
Get over it.
Suicide is an option.

Here's a hint for you.
ALL the jurors found Zimmerman not guilty.
That's all anyone needs to say in his defense.
Other than from the obvious legal standpoint, that's wishful thinking on your part. This thread is evidence that there's plenty more to be said.

Given that many (including yourself, I'm sure) consider OJ guilty, it's odd that you'd compare him to Zimmerman.
