Have you seen this one?
A Florida woman who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing a shot into the wall during a fight with her husband, who she said had abused her. She appealed and is now out on bond.

I've been following that one with some interest.

One reason we used to teach "NEVER fire warning shots".

(Subtext: when the police get there, make sure the only story they're gonna hear is yours.)

Had she put two in his head, she'd possibly have never seen the inside of a jail.

Almost certainly not, had she been white.

Can’t say I really fancied her myself, but my hubby always got particularly amorous after and episode of Voyager, bring on the re-runs

Funny that Enterprise is currently re-running here and Joline Blalock has a similar effect.

I never really watched any of them, except some STNG, Patrick Stewart is weirdly hot, a presence not to be forgotten but I must say I’m really enjoying the re-run of enterprise…

Yah.

Sci-fi fandom - or fendom - is a state of mind. It takes an odd sort of perception.

And Stewart is a classicaly-trained Shakespearean stage actor - he'd be good reading the 'phone book.

I met him once in a lift in a hotel on London. His presence is so overpowering he spoke to me and I literally froze,”dar, dar, dar”, I felt so, I don’t know, insignificant.

There is only one other person who has had that effect on me and he is the father of my children.

Actually it wasn't. Zimmerman first followed Martin in his car and called a nonemergency police number to report what he felt was suspicious activity. While on the phone Martin came up to the car and Zimmerman closed his window to avoid a direct confrontation. He then followed Martin while still talking to the operator who said "Okay, we don't need you to do that" at which point Zimmerman said "Yeah" and you can hear in the recording that his breathing changed indicating that he had stopped trying to follow Martin.
At this point Martin had gotten away. No one was following him. He had more than enough time to get home. So what did he do instead? The evidence supported Zimmerman's claim that he was attacked. You can't claim self defense for Martin when it looks like he instigated the attack.
Martin only "started towards the truck", looked and then started skipping away. There is no mention of any window being up or down. That is pure fabrication on your part. The problem is after Zimmerman tell the cops he is returning to his car another 2 minutes go by before the confrontation starts. He had run from his truck to that location in about 20 seconds yet it took 2 minutes for him to cover half the distance back to when the walkways intersect. What was he doing for those 2 minutes. Did decide to stop for a smoke first? Did he take a leak? Did he continuing looking around for the person he had been chasing? Wouldn't you? We know that Martin was in the rear area between the buildings talking on the phone. It was very still out that night and Zimmerman should have heard Martins voice echoing between the buildings before he saw him. I find to hard to believe that Martin could have snuck up on Zimmerman given the location.

No I didn't:

"A source to the Orlando Sentinel said in May that Zimmerman told investigators that at one point Martin circled his vehicle,[Note 8] and he rolled up his window to avoid a confrontation."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Tray...

Zimmerman also made the statement, I keep making the mistake of writing testified and we know he never had to testify in court. And Zimmerman's claim was that he was getting a street address for the police when Martin came back up to him and confronted him. So if I said he snuck up on him I was wrong.

Also Zimmerman told his story several times, including the night that it happened. There were no major discrepancies between his statements and the forensic evidence or the evidence from testimony of observers. He also passed a lie detector test:

http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/nation/st...

Usually if someone lies one of two things will happen, his story will not match the evidence, or he will change his story substantially since he has to remember his story and not remember the truth. That is very difficult to do. Especially if you were under the stress of just receiving a beating and shooting someone on the night that it happened.

I have said it before, he may not be a particular likable character, but that does not make him guilty.

I met James Mason once.

I was maybe 10 years old, and he came to the opening of one of my Dad's plays, at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin.

He shook my hand, greeted me, and asked my name...
