Florida "Chicken Church" becomes bizarre tourist attraction

While it was not intended to look like a chicken, the church's committee find the similarities highly comical.

The church's bird-like features are used as a compass to direct sea workers - its wings represent East and West, while its beak and tail symbolise North and South

First off, work on your reading comprehension skills. My claim was not that "posters" did it although several did, it was "And I remember how the minority "rights" (race baiters) folks ranted and raved about it being a "White on black crime". Think Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton.
Yeah NTR, stop being pretentious. This whole thing is about White and black, whites getting away with murder, poor helpless black babies being victimized, yada yada yada and f the truth of it all...
When the story broke here on topix it was the news article that indicated Zimmerman was a white male. It was a certain group of regular posters who pointed out that Zimmerman was not white. Those same ranting right wing regulars couldn't stop trying to insinuate that the world is a better place because this 17 year old boy was dead.

You are functionally illiterate. That last line referred to Florida's mandatory minimum sentencing laws. Learn to comprehend what you read before people start to realize how ignorant you really are.

A pregnant woman is recovering from an attack after Seminole County Sheriff's deputies said she was beaten during a brawl in Sanford by 12 people, including four juveniles. The youngest suspect is 12 years old.

Neighbors said the fight broke out on Sunday just after 10 p.m. in the Palm Point subdivision along Daffadil Terrace.

Florida's shameful sham: A bogus review of Stand Your Ground law

The task force commissioned by Gov. Rick Scott to review Florida's Stand Your Ground law has reached a verdict -- one entirely expected since the 19-member board was stacked with advocates of the law, including two of its authors and other lawmakers who voted for it.

The board did recommend some tweaks to the law in its report two weeks ago, urging the Legislature to examine its "unintended consequences."

Like episodes where victims were shot in the back while fleeing. How could that possibly be considered "standing your ground?" Yet the flawed law prevailed.

Colorado has a simaler Law called "The Make My Day" Law!

I remember last year where some teens were breaking in a guys house. The Man shot one in the face and killed him at the front door. The other kid ran away. The kid who was killed`s Family threatened to kill the home owner. The guy had to move so as to protect his safety. The kid that got killed was Hispanic I believe. His Family were on the news saying they would kill the home owner. Claiming the kid was not trying to burgalarize the Mans home but the other teen later admitted they were.

The home owner was not charged as he was within his right to protect his home under that law!

I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.

Miami Design District Crime Challenges $312 Million Luxury Overhaul
since the new luxury stores began opening in October, the Design District and surrounding streets have seen an influx of criminals staking out stores, restaurants, and construction sites. Between November 20 and February 20, there has been one aggravated assault, four robberies, and ten break-ins and thefts in the neighborhood. In addition to the Harry's episode, some of the more eye-popping crimes include:

• thieves lifting $37,495 worth of merchandise from the temporary Louis Vuitton store at 170 NE 40th St. on November 21;

• two men beating up a food delivery driver and taking his cell phone in front of 270 NE 39th St. on December 11; and

• a mugger attacking a Key Largo woman in broad daylight and stealing her $700 Canon camera on NW 38th Street at NW First Avenue on January 14.

As some observers ask whether crime could threaten his bold plan to make the Design District Miami's flossiest retail setting, Robins insists those fears are unfounded. "It concerns me to have any incidents occur in the Design District," says the developer, who spends a million dollars a year on security. "Luxury malls and neighborhoods attract a certain amount of crime. However, we have less crime than other major luxury retail properties in South Florida."

Another misleading headline.

The article says that the ordinance would allow law enforcement to disarm individuals who were behaving in an "unruly" manner, not the citizenry at large.

Seems unnecessary since police already have the authority to arrest these same individuals, but it isn't the gun grab the far right wants to make it seem.

Fear and rhetoric are the hallmarks of the far right.

<quoted text>What makes you think TM went back to find GZ? Transcript that proves that happened, please.
IF you were a decent, open-minded, Law and Order citizen instead of the racist-phobe that you have proclaimed yourself to be (do you need me to bring up YOUR post saying that you consider most if not all the 'conservatives' are racist or use racist-based logic? LIKE I DID ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS ABOUT GZ?), U would know and remember WHAT the 'gf' testified to about her conversation with TM.

but, what's the use of bringing up such FACTS?

it's like all the race-baiting LIES put out to get National attention and an arrest: GZ wasn't taken into custody, he wasn't 'quuestioned', he wasn't tested, he wasn't wounded. etc...

nevermind that the WHOLE State's 'case' is based on fear of domestic violence, votes, a sitting Pres' comments, biased media coverage, LIES, reverse racism... hell, any thing but the KNOWN evidence.

but, don't take this 'conservative racist's' word, take the great liberal and pro-people's lawyer, Dershowitz' word. I would think HIS opinion, as one of the pre-eminent attorneys of OUR life times would carry some weight with his fellow libs. but NOT with die-hard Progressives, eh?

tell me, do u/did you support the New Black Panthers racist, violent, vigilanty rhetoric? the threats of domestic violence?

the State citing as ITS voice expert the 'impartial and scientific' word (NOT!) of the mother (as opposed to the father saying no, it wasn't his son's voice) IS the prime example of the State's PERSECUTION via its Arrest Warrant.

FACTS, NTR, STILL MATTER to some of us. when did they cease mattering to YOU?

your credibility is near zero, based on your own words. you DO know that, don't you?

"according to a site for LEGAL questions, allexperts.com , UNLESS THE LESSER CHARGES ARE FILED WITH THE HIGHEST CHARGE, NO, the jury cannot just pull a charge out of their collective arses and find any body guilty.
now, IF the Spec Pros DID include Manslaughter, yes, they can.
my understanding is: SHE DID NOT."
----------
I'm just going to say this and get it over with.
I don't think you're very smart.
You said the prosecutor had not included the lesser charges and that meant the jury would not have the option to consider a lesser charge.
I have been (patiently) trying to point out that the lesser charges are included automatically which meant the jury does have that option.
If you finally understand that Zimmerman can in fact be convicted of manslaughter even if the jury decides not to convict on the charge of second degree murder then we have made at least some progress and I'm satisfied that may be all your limited intellect is capable of understanding.
There's really no reason to continue this discussion unless you are determined prove what a nasty, little moron you really are.
one word: LIAR.
