Credible threat against George Zimmerman.

This sucks. Let the man have his day in court. Don't give him the justice he gave Trayvon.

Lets see. Since the Right Wing considers me very intelligent because unlike most people I work for myself I decided to take Monday off. I was going to go to the beach but it was overcast so I hung around the house and did some work on my boat instead. I made a pot of beef stew. A friend stopped by, got me stoned and helped eat some of the stew. Got a couple of bills mailed out, and of course attempted to correct the lies the Right Wing puts out on Topix. I did not piss up any ropes because that is a Right Wing activity. But I am glad you enjoyed that expression. Go ahead and use it. No charge. Thanks for asking. How as your day?

Keep that part about "90 percent of people don't work for themselves" in mind when the the Left-wing socialists are jumping up and down crying about "evil corporations". Let's tax the life out of corporate America until there is no incentive for them to open businesses here seems to be the Lefts mantra. Yet they wonder why so many wealthy individuals are renouncing their US citizenship......people are growing tired of having to work to support not only their own families but also every "social program" the government comes up with to buy votes.
I have an incentive for them. If you don't manufacture and employ Americans here in the U.S. of A you don’t do business here. Sell you product somewhere else. How is that for incentive? PS all those mega multinational American corporations became mega multinational American corporations paying much higher taxes and using union labor so take your being taxed out of business BS and go piss up a rope.

Plan on acquittal in this case.

And an early retirement for the prosecutor.

O'Mara will let you know about that.
Calm down!
maybe not every ity-bity detail but the State released ITS witness list to the news media and O'Mara released enough info about the videos.
and STILL the State makes no claim of ANY new damning evidence to GZ.
u and ur fellow circle-jerkers can keep waiting, but...

How true. Even Trayvon. Only problem was, he didn't have a weapon.
that's just ur way of saying TM LOST the struggle for the gun, isn't it?
the Devil is in the details... and the dirt nap.
the State has NOW admitted IT has NO new witness to the events that transpired that might.
a year from now, after TM's death has been replaced with the new President's recovery progress and 'Happy Days Are Here Again' again and ANOTHER 100 or so un-necessary young black males' deaths and the cancellation of Rev Tawana'a trite and un-true program, ALL charges will be quietly dismissed against GZ and Life will go on.
the question will be, where will UR new circle be then?

In Deutschland Zimmermann ist ein nationaler held. Deutschland liebt ihn. Zimmermann wird immer ein zuhause in Deutschland.

Er ist begeistert von der Deutschen überall.

Er wird schon Millionen von der Zeit die Sache vorbei ist und er geht frei!

Ja!

The state of Florida isn't Zimmerman's daddy, and it doesn't have to believe a word out of the vigilante's mouth.

And the state of Florida would love to get him on the stand.

Zimmerman doesn't have to take the stand.

He was interviewed for 5 hours by police.

The prosecution has nothing to contradict the statements he made to the police.

Conjecture and supposition is not evidence.

Nothing to prove Zimmerman committed a crime.

Self defense is not a crime.

Acquittal!!

Hey there 'old fart'(if your picture is accurate) for a criminal conviction the State has to prove the charges against a person. The defendant doesn't have to prove anything.

In this case, there is a black lynch mob against this guy.

lol! Too bad you're not intelligent son.

But that's your choice....

"...Most names were redacted from witness and evidence documents obtained by the Orlando Sentinel, but six civilian witnesses were named: Martin's parents, Sybrina Fulton and Tracy Martin; his brother, Jahvarius Fulton, and Zimmerman's neighbor, Frank Taaffe, friend Joe Oliver and father, Robert Zimmerman.

The document listed 18 Sanford police officers as primary witnesses, including lead Investigator Chris Serino. Corey's office also turned over five reports prepared by him, as well as written reports prepared by four other Sanford officers...."

u are soooo smart, son-ny, quote where that press release says ANY civilian witnesses' name(s) were redacted?
accordeing to the State's release, or at least what the MEDIA choseto print, ONLY lists six, NAMED civ witnesses.
but, I suppose u TOO have ESP like the State has psychic cell phones.
u keep grabbing at those slippery threads... sooner or later u'll hang urself, maybe.
what a ma-ROON....
