We'll never know how "slouchy" the minor was, will we? That Castle Doctrine is a legal POS. It gives the shooter too much leeway on when to use a firearm. Bad laws make bad outcomes and the Judicial System has spoken.
It appears George's mall cop wannabe future is now a faded dream. I wouldn't trust the guy to protect an outhouse. He might as well give it up and accept that job offer as a "security expert" on Fox, huh? LOL
so since you weren't their and I wasn't there , then the combative ability of either party .... is an unknown factor

but the use is a defense and the milestone of the Castle law

I'm against this Castle law .... but

yes they did , didn't they...... no blacks on the jury

The Law says .... you have the right to be tried by your peers,,,,your peers , not the victim's peers , but your peers

The US Constitution consists of seven articles and 27 amendments. The original seven articles took effect in 1789. The 27 amendments were added to the Constitution from 1791 to 1992. The first ten amendments were enacted in 1791; they are often called "the bill of rights."

Point was racism. Do you think the DOJ would be considering trying Zimmerman on different charges if he was black and Martin was white or Hispanic?

christ, really tally?
shesh, sorry i didn't edit out "florida" in sly's post, in my reply:
<quoted text>
<quoted text>
thought it was obvious i meant media outlet, as in NBC for editing out the 911 operator asking Zimmerman what race the person he was suspicious of appeared to be.
again: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/tv-column...
"Edited out was the 911 dispatcher asking Zimmerman if the person he was suspicious of was “black, white or Hispanic,” to which Zimmerman had responded,“He looks black.”
instead, NBC, edited and wanted to sensationalize and suggest racial profiling:
"In the recording heard by NBC viewers, Zimmerman appeared to volunteer the information,“This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.”
"NBC “pounced on the Zimmerman/Martin matter because they knew this tragedy could be, with proper sensationalization and manipulation, a racial powderkeg that would result in months, if not years, of topics for their failing news programs, particularly the plummeting ratings for their ailing ‘Today Show’,” the suit alleged."
"Luciano, Burnside, and an NBC producer were fired after a network investigation determined the 911 tape had been edited.
“We strongly disagree with the accusations made in the complaint," NBC Universal said Thursday afternoon in a statement, adding, "There was no intent to portray Mr. Zimmerman unfairly. We intend to vigorously defend our position in court.”"
hope that clarifies and all's well with you and yours..
damn a new posting style , nope

but the post stated the state of Florida ..... yes
Florida held the trial ... so your shout out refers to the state ..does it not ... you are going to get all up set

by throwing a punching motion the cutting edge will slash and by with drawing the arm from the punching motion will allow for stabbing ..... two very dangerous actions in one continuous motion

throwing and drawing is one continuous movement?

Yes, and now the NACCP is full blast from my understanding.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid predicted that despite the not guilty verdict in the Trayvon Martin shooting, that the case was not over as the NAACP asked that the Justice Department pursue federal charges against George Zimmerman.

"I think the Justice Department's going to take a look at this. You know, this isn't over with, and I think that's good, that's our system," Reid said.

Ben Jealous, president and CEO of the NAACP, said Sunday the attorney general's office should pursue criminal civil-rights charges in the killing of Martin following the acquittal of Zimmerman late Saturday.

"We are calling on them to do just that because when you look at his comments … there is reason to be concerned that race was a factor in why he targeted young Trayvon,” Jealous said on CNN’s "State of the Union."

"The reality is that even if there had been several burglaries in his neighborhood, and he believed that the suspects were never caught were young black men, there is no reason for him to kill Trayvon," Jealous said.

Jealous said the much-watched trial in Sanford, Fla., is as an iconic an event as was the Rodney King trial in Los Angeles.

"As black people, as black parents, parents raising black boys, black girls in this society, that it feels so awful that our young people have to fear the bad guys and the good guys, the robbers and the cops, and the self-appointed community-watch volunteer that thinks that they're keeping folks safer," he said.

Justice was not served by the all-female jury that delivered the innocent verdict, Jealous said.

"How is it that young Trayvon Martin could be killed by George Zimmerman, and George Zimmerman gets no time when Michael Vick got two-and-a-half years for killing dogs, when a domestic-violence victim in northern Florida shot warning shots in the air over the head of her attacker and got 20 years?” he asked.

Jealous, on CBS' "Face the Nation" said the focus will now shift to "ensuring that our justice system continues its' course."

"There seems to be plenty of evidence that suggests that may race may have been a factor," said Jealous. "He called 911 a lot about young black men that he thought were dangerous. He said, these punks always get away, having had that track record those words have powerful meaning.[It] should not be the case that somebody should be able to track, to taunt, to kill a young man on the streets."

Michael Eric Dyson, of Georgetown University, who authored a biography of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., agreed that race played a factor in Martin's death.

"From the very beginning. It was racial motivation," said Dyson. "He's got a fear of and suspicion of African American youth. It was also evident in the construction of the jury. And while not indicting the jury themselves, they are a reflection of the broader society's inability to empathize and imagine what it means to be Trayvon's parents and Trayvon, going home and being assaulted by a marauding person who obviously is motivated by some sense of prejudice."
