Woop-de-doo!
He's gonna need a helluva lot more than that.
Maybe the Thug's lawyers can go out and find someone who says the Thug didn't actually pull the trigger of the gun that was used to murder Trayvon.
Now THAT would be evidence that would REALLY be helpful to the child killer.
Seems to me that it's moving along his way--slowly, but we have six months for even more. I've seen little or no new evidence to support the prosecution. In fact, there is another story out there where the police reports have been changed four times!

This is what gives way to a solid charge. It was last minute coin-flipping that led the the murder charge on Zimmerman. In other words, their charges are extremely shaky given the new information. Plus (as the article points out) if Martin did have any advanced training, that changes the entire scenario.

They'll take it back from time to time if they want to include FDR. Funnier still when they try to include the original kkk.
You could take selected slices of 50 years of America and make your case son.
Your problem is you're not interested in the history, you're interested in making your political point.
FDR? It seems that you are trying to make your case many years before FDR.

I'm pretty sure this case won't hinge on your perspective of the evidence.

Your "if's" also won't be making it into the evidence.

You forget something, as well...

Special Prosecutor Angela Corey did her own investigation with her own investigators. She charged the Thug with second degree murder.

Don't you remember that? I do.

The Sanford Police Department was (and is) fraught with problems. Has been for many, many years.

Nevertheless, they didn't interfere with special Prosecutor Angela Corey doing the right thing.

Team Thug Zimmerman and his supporters can use all the diversion tactics they want. But they cannot take away the fact that a child who was minding his own business was chased down by a lunatic with a loaded gun and killed by the lunatic.

You ever ask yourself what kind of a person grabs his loaded gun and goes after a child who was minding his own business? Does that give you ANY kind of pause whatsoever?

Think about it.

The proof of inequality is out there. All you have to do is want to see the truth.
Some things to look into would be, suspension rates, traffic stops and warnings versus tickets for same offenses, harsher punishments for same crimes, reports as 'suspicious' person, and as pointed out here with Corey- number of kids kicked up to adult court.
I know there are reports available for workplace discrimination, I just haven't looked into it in-depth because my kids are still in school.

Yes, unfortunately, inequality permeates throughout many facets of society.

It is systemic and it is broad. Even though there are many laws in place in housing, banking, employment, etc, there are many barriers that prevent many from the even playing field that others enjoy.

What is really perplexing is the inequality in the criminal justice system. One would think that those who are the guardians of law and justice would be the very ones who would want to see an equal application of the law.

But many of them in key places do the opposite of what Lady Justice demands.

It is a behavioral problem, it is a human problem. The law can only go so far in changing behavior. It has its limits. The only way that the insidiousness of systemic inequality will be eradicated is when we all realize...

That we are truly our brother's keeper; we are our sister's keeper.

Excellent post.
When I (and I'm sure many others) bring up inequality, it's not to portray blacks as victims, or make excuses for anything. It's for education. I fully believe that a history not learned is a history that will be repeated. The mistreatment of blacks isn't even history yet, but there are those that refuse to see it, or will make excuses for it.

Yes, when we fail to learn from our mistakes, we will repeat them. And we do, unfortunately. Yes, we need that education.

Some don't realize that the inequality that is happening to some today can happen to them tomorrow.

History has a strange way of turning the tables. Civilization is filled with dynasties and empires and peoples that logic says cannot be dethroned or overcome. But History says not so.

We should all be very careful how we treat others because the day could come when that treatment boomerangs. But it is most important how we treat others not because of the boomerang effect.

It is important that others are afforded the same treatment because its right to do it. When my brother or sister of a different race, creed or ethnicity succeeds, it is a success of the human race and we all benefit.

There are examples of that the world over. But we need exponentially more examples. My soul shudders and my eyes twinkle at the thought of man fulfilling his potential.

Just think of all the possibilities of where the human race could be if only we treated each other with respect and dignity and were blinded to the color of skin! What a dynamic and awe-inspiring world that would be.

We still have a chance to get there. But it's like you say...we must educate ourselves of what is going on and not turn a blind eye or be oblivious to the vast inequalities permeating society.

That's quite a description you have of me.

I'll give you some time to work on it. And surely you don't expect me to answer any questions you may have of me, you should know that.

Now...you may not be feeling well tonight. I'm not sure what brought on your outburst in the posts that you've written tonight.

Try to fix yourself up and come to your senses. The sooner the better. If I were you, I'd get lost before the smacker comes and tells your butt off.

You know how sensitive you get. I used to feel sorry for you when he rips your rotting heart out. But not anymore. You are treated by him the way you treat others.

I hope he's not sleep. You best be running if he's still awake.
