Post #41960 is a sarcastic slap at using the behavior of one individuals behavior as causative of the behavior of others in instigating the institution of slavery. Nothing inconsistent there with the latter statement condemning the evils of slavery.

No hypocrisy. The incongruity in the examples given identify the sarcasm, unless you really do believe that one murderer justifies others murdering, or one black owning a slave begins and justifies slavery.
A casual observance of my posts on this thread answers your concerns more than sufficiently.

The sun rises in the east and sets in the west.
The sate of Florida has determined a crime has been committed.
It doesn't ask you for your opinion or me for mine, it knows that a crime has been committed.
It now moves to prove the crime was committed by a specific person and to prove that that person committed the crime- in this case- will focus on motivation.
Hate, in this case.

Nope, crimes are made up of elements and each and every element of the crime must be proved beyond a doubt to a trier of fact such as a judge or jury for a conviction of the alleged crime. Alternately the accused can plead guilty and forego the trying process but in so doing the accused is pleading guilty to each and every element of the crime charged.

Again, motivation is not an element of a crime and it is not necessary to show motivation to get a conviction or acquittal. What motivated someone to commit a crime is irrelevant to proof of the crime. A person can have all the motivation in the world to commit a specific crime but that does not prove they did the crime.

I haven't followed the Zimmerman/Martin case in many months. Long ago I determined that the legal system would have to sort this out. I will be satisfied with its final and last conclusion whether it is in the lower Court or in a higher one.

However, what sticks in my mind is a person walking home, not bothering anyone, obeying all laws, and now he is dead.

I gave the determination of what happened on that evening to a trier of fact such as a judge or jury. You or I won't decide the outcome and there seemed to be nothing new of probative value forthcoming so I moved on.
I applaud your decision to move on.

Don't have to take the time to find out about it. I already know.

You've harped for many months about it but you assign it a causation that may not be correct.

Since you're taking the time to try out your new name, I'll reflect more on the GSE act and get back with you about it in a few days.

Is that a compromise that will work for you? Or is compromise as dirty a word to you as it is to congressional Repugnants?

"After putting $803,436 in Obama’s re-election campaign, a media giant attempted to keep Americans from seeing the video by banning it from their sites,” stated Aaron DeHoog, the financial publisher who is unapologetic for the release of controversial footage that has gained international attention."

"The video DeHoog is referring to is a stunning interview with famed economist Robert Wiedemer, author of the New York Times best-selling book Aftershock."

"Wiedemer, best known for correctly predicting the collapse of the U.S. housing market, equity markets, and consumer spending that almost sank the United States during the “Great Recession”, provides disturbing evidence in the video interview for 50 percent unemployment, a 90 percent stock market crash, and 100 percent annual inflation ... starting as soon as 2013."

"When the host of the interview expressed disbelief in Wiedemer’s claims, he calmly displayed five indisputable charts to back up his predictions (click here to see those exact charts)."

Check out this amazing video!

Mr. Wiedemer has got some books to sell.

It's normal for people to have control of their websites. Wiedemer's gloom and doom video hasn't been banned from the internet, of course not. I've been seeing his ads running for many, many months now on a host of websites.

He wants to get paid just like those December 2012 Mayan calendar fools. After 2013, he can't sell that junk no matter how many "indisputable charts" he has.

<quoted text>Well, you aren't seeing as many others see it: he was a BLACK boy walking through a white neighborhood and when the white pedophile confronted him, this boy forgot his Southern upbringing and failed to address the pedophile as he should have, with the 'yes, massah' and the 'no, massah'.
That is the reality of this situation.

Well said.

<quoted text>In proving that the crime was committed- and the state of Florida, which holds all the evidence has determined that a crime has been committed- motivation is examined.

What made this pedophile cop wannabe turn the truck around and get out of the truck armed with a gun and chase down and confront this black boy?

Would he have chased this black boy if the boy was white?

Based on his history of 911 calls (his history of being a cop wannabe): no, the pedophile Zimmerman was not interested in white boys cutting through the neighborhood.

No conviction no crime. All the state has determined at this point is there is enough evidence to allege a crime was committed.

A trier of fact such as judge or jury must determine if a crime was committed. For a crime to exist each and every element of the crime charged must be proved beyond a doubt.

While motivation can help explain a crime it is not an element of a crime that the law requires to be proven.
That would be..."beyond a reasonable doubt."

I'm sure you just got carried away and caught up in the moment."

Not relevant. The charge does not deal with what woulda coulda happened if Martin had been white, or red, or brown, or a martian, or a shooting star or anything else, he was a person whose rights are alleged to have been violated by another person. They are both equal before the law without regard to race, religion, gender, national origin.
It is relevant.

In more ways than one.

Decency escapes the Fools and Idiots on this thread who continue to spew racism and talk about their guns and post veiled threats.

It is worthy of condemnation. It is vile and has no place on this thread or anywhere.

There have been those on here who've been fighting against such filthiness.

Will WMCOL join in against the racism, hatred and veiled threats of violence or will he/she continue to stay silent?

I remind him/her of her virtuous post (#41960). Or was that just talk without substance?

Call the police and Treyvon is alive. Treyvon had a clear path home. Treyvon should have used his cell phone to dial the police. He chose a confrontation. Don't assault a man with a gun.
