LOL! Well said.
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
Ding! Ding!! Ding!!! Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!!!
As others have pointed out, this momentum will be utilized in the next assault on the 2nd Amendment. Gun Owners of America thinks that the recent agreement in the Senate negotiated by John McCain to limit filibusters on presidential appointments will be enacted by Harry Reid when the Demo>c<rats counterattack for more gun control.
It’s shameful when you think of it, the ACLU quoting a document they’ve lifted their leg and whizzed on for decades on end.
I'm with you on that... Alternate universe? Quick, what color is the sky over your house?
There is no color to the sky...only shades of gray. (Thank you, Monkees!)
I knew that something tasting horrible tends to drain from my sinuses whenever I talk about Catarrh, should have remembered the spelling...
“I dont think it worked as well as hoped because there have actually been a fair number of blacks speaking out in the other direction.”
Have you seen this? It’s good.
I think as more people see that TM isn’t 12 years old, as his photo shows, and evidence arises that he really was a thug, these people are embarassed. They also didn’t know, until now, that GZ associated with, and helped blacks. Now they’re waving the white flag.
I dont trust the aclu as far as i can throw them. I dont care what they have to say.
very good point, especially since the attention span of the low information voter is about 10 days. They will find something else to focus on, like what Kim and Kanye are doing. Perfect examples are, Bengahzi, IRS, Fast and Furious - we see how much is getting done on these little treats.
The only reason that Holder is keeping the prospect of federal charges open is to protect Tracey Martin, Sybrina Fulton, Ben Crump, Natalie Jackass, Daryl Parks, Jasmine Rand from civil litigation and criminal prosecution.
He is extending the DOJ umbrella of protection over these low lifes and their ill gotten gains to buy them time. But that umbrella is getting heavy .......
And I’ve found myself siding with Putin on both Syria and Snowden.
I think I’m a patriot without a country.
Even though the Supreme Court permits a federal prosecution following a state prosecution, the ACLU believes the Double Jeopardy Clause of the Constitution protects someone from being prosecuted in another court for charges arising from the same transaction. A jury found Zimmerman not guilty, and that should be the end of the criminal case.
Wow, this is something. Perhaps the first time that I ever agreed with the ACLU! And they are spot on! 0dumb0 & Holder are trying to milk this for all its worth, pandering & appeasing & inciting the race baitors & demoRAT plantation slaves. But even the ACLU recognized that this is a farce and is calling for Holder to STFU and drop this charade!
Ditto the feeling, everything is upside-down, backwards, and what used to be right is now wrong and vise versa with no end in sight.
That said, if there is anything the DOJ can do to help the Martins/Fultons...it is at their service!
