The kid was black so he must have grown up with no respect for authority. That's why all black guys die at the hands of police. If you do exactly what a cop asks of you, guess what? You live.
So those two ladies who were shot multiple times by the LA cops.... they both looked like the suspect and refused to obey?

Gee, makes one wonder how they were able to get a multimillion dollar settlement from the LA police department so quickly.

AKRON, OH (WOIO)-
The 64 year-old male who was shot by police following a traffic stop in the 600 block of Wolf Ledges Parkway in Akron has been identified as James Genda.

The Baird Street resident was shot by a University of Akron police officer Thursday morning.

It happened during a traffic stop around 11 a.m.

Police pulled him over because the plates did not match the car.

Terry Metcalf unwittingly drove by the stop just as the fatal drama began to unfold.

"It was a normal traffic stop. The police officer got out of the car as I was pulling out. When I came back I was surprised to see the whole area shut down," said Terry.

When the officer approached the vehicle and asked for license and registration Genda produced what looked like a real .45 caliber handgun.

The officer fired, hitting Genda several times. He died at the scene.

Further investigation revealed Genda brandished only a BB gun.

An autopsy on Genda will be performed on Friday.

A couple days ago a cop in Deland ran a kid down and killed him with his squad car. The kids crime was driving without a license. When the cop stopped him he tried to run on foot so the cop ran him down with his car. The kid was Black, so it must have been self defense.
Lesson learned, don't run from the cops like so many intercity punks do.

Memories can improve when you are reminded that you can go to jail for perjury if you lie in these cases.
You know, as the pedophile's ugly fat wife lied and will end up going to jail for perjury.
speaking of ugly fat wifes, how's Moochelle ? and your mom?

I'm not sure what one has to do with the other myself. But I am sure of one thing. I could care less about either one!

The problem is that John is scared shipless. He tells the truth, now what's going to happen to him or his family?
If he has some dignity and a pair, he will tell his honest story in court. If not, he will lie in fear because of intimidation. Same holds true of jurors and possibly even the judge. Everybody involved has reflections of Rodney King on their mind. John (at the time) had no way of knowing how big this case would get when he talked to the reporter.
Exactly -- I totally agree this is a possibility, and why he might have felt it necessary to change his story.

Running him down with a car is reasonable force?

Maybe you should look at the map again. Zimmerman was walking west and his car was west of where he was at. Martin was hiding behind the northern row of houses for the couple of minutes after he and Zim parted while Zim finished his discussion with the police dispatcher.
In that time, Martin could have crawled home on his knees and still made it before Zim hung up the phone with 911.
I don't need a map. I have been to that HOA many times. There is no place to hide. If Zimmermen was walking west in the cross through to get back to his car he would have to make a left into the rear walkway and walk away from the cross through and his car to get to where he killed Martin. Martin thought he had lost the pervrert that was dogging him. Zimmermen obviously spotted him again and continued his pursuit. This time however Martin did not run away choosing insted to defend himself. which is his right.

As soon as the race baiters showed up, it was over. Real revenge is coming. After the getting even period caused by an inept leader who is the most hateful person in american history. Never speaking calm. Always blaming someone else who is innocent and most likely much more responsible in living and charged for it.

So Zimmermen is not guilty because you don't like Obama?

Maybe we should call the IRS and demand that they investigate the liberal Martin supporters on this thread for tax evasion and all other illegal activities they may or may not be engaged in.

If they are involved with the sale and or distribution of any illegal narcotics or other substances they are still obliged under the law to pay taxes on the ill-gotten gains.

If they are involved with illegal narcotics in the capacity of consumer they are still required by law to submit taxes on the transaction of the purchase of said narcotics.

Perhaps when the tables are reversed in the future, and the Republicans once again control the Executive and the Legislative branches, they could stick it so far up the assses of the progressive reprobates as to render them totally impotent once and for all.

'John' can't see through walls.

'John' cannot give testimony when he claims he can see something when he is making a phone call from behind a wall.

"John' knows the difference between talking to a reporter and the court where lying could land him in prison.

The pedophile's ugly fat wife will find this out soon.
