The other Fla. murder case that everyone is talking about
http://myfox8.com/2013/07/16/the-other-fla-mu...
Right on the heels of the George Zimmerman trial, another controversial and tragic self-defense case is making its way to court. This time, the scene is Jacksonville, Florida, and the story involves Jordan Davis, an African-American teen the same age as Trayvon Martin.
Davis, 17, was shot to death by Michael Dunn in November 2012.
Dunn told police that he asked Davis and three other teens, who were parked next to him at a gas station, to turn down their music. Dunn says he heard threats from the teens and saw a gun in their car. He says he feared for his own safety, and that’s why he grabbed his gun and fired into the vehicle.
Police say that they found no guns inside the teens’ vehicle and that Dunn fired his gun eight or nine times.
Ah so true. Facts speak louder than words from the dysfunctional right wing nuts. Soon we will have to write the Legacy for the Dunn victims. On and on it goes with the erroneous right wing nuts BS laws.
……………….Trayon Martin Legacy;
USA has once again exhibited its undercurrents of racism. Acquittal of all charges and the battle over gun reforms serves to illuminate to all the world our lopsided Judicial system.
Virtually any dark skinned person can relate to similar eerily scenarios in, various degrees, in their lives that they suffered or witnessed. Racism resides within insidious forms permeating through our USA society.
Supreme Court’s decision against our voters rights, exemplifies the naïve conceptions that our justice system still harbors racism. Court’s statement “Things Have Changed Dramatically” illuminates their naïve comprehension on the issue.
Justice Departments advancing an investigation, may yet come to expose the lax laws that supports and creates such Zimmerman scenarios.“Stand Your Ground” with its vague provision of “Reasonable Belief” obstructing justice from being fully satisfied.
Self-Deputizing any Zimmerman with a gun and a grudge. Discouraging year for gun laws reform. Mass killings on a continuous cycle being perpetrated by grudge toting gun zealots is not enough. Now we are saddled with Lax Laws that encourage and legalizes killing situations.
Frightening is the thought that these grudge gun totting individuals walk daily amongst our populace in public. Teaching our children that this is a permissible way of life.? Violence to beget violence.
Our frail legislatures obtaining their continuous infusion of their “Fix” from their pusher man the lobbyist, will keep us in this dysfunctional quagmire for many years to come.
Voters have the opportunity to remove those they suspect as being addicts from their legislature’s come 2014. Otherwise we can just keep recycling and compound, what that educates to our children to do, the same over and over again.

That you're a racist.
<quoted text>
I could care less what Zimmerman's race or ethnicity is.
<quoted text>
As posted in a previous post, Martin planned on attending college and studying Avionics.
<quoted text>
It's only your opinion that he was a "bullying thug". To most, he was just another teenager who found himself in a position he should have not been put in.
<quoted text>
Maybe you're just too racist to post anything productive on the issue? He lost his life, but to many that now see him as a martyr, he has earned a legacy that will be used to further expose racism in this country.
Do you really think I care if you call me a racist?

Yes, Zman's color mattered to you. You wrote about it and placed the race card and pitted blacks vs whites. All of your posts are color oriented.

If Martin planned on going to college and studying avionics he would not had run with the crowd that he did and he would not had dressed like a hoodlum.

You and your minions like to claim Trayvons' death was based upon him being black. There are the stats.

"The population in the development at the time of the shooting, was about 49% non-Hispanic white, 23% Hispanic (of any race), 20% black, and 5% Asian, according to Census figures"

If Zimmerman was a true racists, he would not have been living in such a community. A community that happened to be reputable.

Trayvon had visited his dad's fiance` several times and was currently staying there as he was "suspended" from school. Good kids who have goals and plans do not get suspended from school as chances of getting into a decent college is slim to just not happening. He was suspended not just once or twice but three times.

With the several times that Trayvon had visited, I find it hard to believe at no time the discussion of home buglaries did not arise?

My opinion is based on the facts. Unlike you I do not wear blinders or see color where there is none. You may have a black guy, a tan guy, a brown guy and a white guy. I still do not see color where you and your minions do and then you blame "whitey" for your own racism.

many answers have been given.
one was offered this last Nov.
YOU just didn't/don't LIKE them.
ergo, according to NTR, there are NO anwers.
BULLSHYTE!
here's one: WORK, or work-fare, INSTEAD of welfare.
here's another: Lead by Example: DON'T SPEND MORE MONEY THAT YOU HAVE!
here's one more: FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION, PERIOD.
Q: have you, NTR, had to make even one little sacrafice in these past 5 years? ONE?
now, what has the Entitlement Class been asked to 'sacrafice'?
you and I KNOW that those Americans on Entitlements have, on average, a better or EQUAL Standard of Living than 90% of the rest of World's ENTIRE POPULATION.
they should! as a Nation, WE ARE $17Trillion in Debt providing IT!
you and your delusional POV preach 'consume, consume, CONSUME!' instead of MAKE.
idiot! when the USA MADE things for a living, we GREW and ALL prospered.
look at us, as a Nation and People, after 50 years of 'fair' trade and going to a Consumation Economy.
foolish Progressive mouthpiece, that be YOU, NTR....
It's ironic how people like you have no problem with raising concerns about the national debt and emphasize to the utmost the cutting of social services for the poor, women and minorities..... but have no problem with your war on Muslims and the out of control spending thats endorsed by the GOP for their own agenda.

Here you talk about following the Constitution... yet it's your own party that's hellbent on destroying it.

Just keep in mind... your opposition is educated, you cannot bullshit them with your Fox News mantra!!

Until we afford the sitting President control of Congress, we're stuck with EO to progress us. That is truly a bummer.
WHAT are Republicans going to do to progress this nation and the majority of her people. I keep asking. NONE of you idiots has an answer. All you know is who you want to punish. You want to punish poor people for being poor.
This perspective reminds me of the cops who pull over the clunker with the bald tires and cite the driver for the "sin" of being too poor to buy new tires.
Sometimes I just want to puke onto the shoes of a self-absorbed ignoramus whose only claim to respectability is by birthright - nothing he created for himself in the first place. Of course, there are the others who simply married well. They're every bit as bad.
do you need new tires? I can help. you poor self righteous mooooocher! what ignorrammmuuus pulls for the poor more then you, you are poor. you know it. you jealouuuuus, under educated pimp for your own poor self. yeppers dat iz whats da trouble wit youuuuuuuuuuu.

Stop being such a fool and face reality. Trayvon was shot and killed because he was viciously attacking Mr. Zimmerman and Mr. Zimmerman was afraid he was going to be killed. If you don't like it go through a chair throw a store window and get arrested like the rest of your kind are doing.
Wasn't she among others that claimed the trial would prove that Zman was guilty and justice will prevail? At least she was right on one account. Justice did prevail.

Simply because Trayvon wasn't a live to be charged and convicted doesn't change the fact that he was committing a serious assault. Stop dancing. Your "black boy" as you have refereed to him so many times was shown to be beating Martin an Martin defended himself. Trayvon gave Martin reason to kill him. It WAS proven in a court of law.
Ironically... you also felt that OJ got away with murder also.
