Preaching to the choir. About a week or two ago I battled the Martin/Zimmerman trolls for hours a day. It’s exasperating.
This may well be the last straw. It is a lynching, and not even of a white guy but an hispanic democrat.
” After nearly two years of investigation without coming up with one charge why is the DoJ still investigating Sheriff Joe Arpaio?”
1) Desperation...too much time invested already.
2) They knew he would retaliate, if attacked.
3) He DID retaliate.
4) Arpaio has better than even odds he can destroy Obama.
5) Add destroy Holder (F & F).
If the question was "Does RIghtwardHo have a clue?" you answered that in spades!
It’s all about money. Pure and simple. It’s money money money. If the Martins can get GZ arrested, then they can sue. Doesn’t matter about a conviction. From Crump’s mouth to God’s ear last night on O’Reilly (Laura Igraham substituting), he said they want him arrested, not convicted. Why not convicted? Because Florida law allows them to sue in civil court if he is merely arrested. They want to sue the HOA and city of Sanford.
My understanding is that the Martins quit their jobs. Wonder why?
Note to the NBPP; George Zimmerman was spotted today having a cheeseburger at McDonalds in Peru, Sweetwater, Wyoming or was it one of the many other Perus in The OLD USA?
Is it too late to tell you it was rhetorical question? LOL
>Enjoy the riots after he is found not guilty.<
Not if there is a majority black/jury. And the black panthers will be demanding a “fair” jury. Zimmerman will be found guilty for the same reason he is being indicted; because “white folks” is scared of “black folks.”
What I’d like to know is when is us “crackers” gonna get enough of this crap and stand up for ourselves and take it to the Black Panther Party racist POS who are able to put bounties on white folks with full cover of the Fed.Gov Imagine what would happen if the KKK did it to a black man? I can tell you what. He’d end up dead, that’s what.
With all this violent rhetoric I just can’t believe we haven’t seen scores of people dead in their homes, sides of the road, etc... as they listen to all of this.
Why won’t the government just clamp done on all of this and save us from untold potential of these words???
Leni this is truly an amazing time and the more I read about the Wilson and then FDR so many of same damn failed ideas where in full force then and people were screaming about it and YET BECAUSE WE ALLOW ALL OF THE ASSHOLES to revise history we are destined to repeat it!!!
Interestingly, I have been absolutely 100% correct about this from the beginning.
I stand ready to be amazed by your command of the facts and relevant law. Go ahead. Dazzle me.
1. Armed v. unarmed (correct)
2. Police told him not to follow but he did (wrong)
3. Scream was probably Treyvon (says who?)
4. Pursuing obviates application of stand your ground. He can not avail himself of its protection.(he was being held down and beaten)
5. Zimmerman seen straddling Treyvons body.(BS. Where did you see this)
6. No evident significant injury to Zimmerman despite claim he was so injured.(what did you want? Brains spewing from his head?)
7. Girlfriends testimony that Treyvon felt he was being followed. Treyvon Treyvon turning on Martin, esp under FL law, is fine if he felt threatened.(Beating someone because they may be following you is ok in Florida?)
Your first point was fine. Rule #1. Never go to a gun fight with a knife. Or in this case with your fists.
Other than that you pretty much have a large case of FAIL!!!
ah it’s all about redistribution of wealth...set the town up to be sued by Holder...take all of whitey’s money and give put in Obama’s stash to be shared with their cronies...
par for the course nothing to see here...
OMG my head is going to explode!!!
I get it : )
Juries are supposed to be UNfair. Unfair to the prosecution. The prosecution has the unfair burden of excluding EVERY reasonable doubt. all of them. If just one reasonable doubt out of 10,000 remains then the defendant MUST be found not guilty. period.
I guess the plan now is to charge him and then move to politically intimidating a jury to convict.
The left is hellbent on destroying this man. There will be no impartial jury allowed for this case and the heck with facts.
I think you are confusing the law with facts and justice.
For all we know, Zimmerman said something totally stupid to the authorities while trying to be “helpful”. That could be all they need to file charges. He hasn’t exactly been exhibiting the behavior of somebody cagily playing the legal game.
I agree that the “evidence” we’ve been presented with points toward self defense, but what we see and hear could be a lot different from what Corey has to work with.
What the law says and what’s just and right are often pretty different things.
It truly is. I have fond memories of CA. It's a beautiful state. Two of my kids (navy brats) were born there.
saleman for the win!
#BREAKINGNEWS George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin’s killer, to be charged with 2nd-degree murder; is in custody - AP reports
Unbelievable..this is the same state that couldn’t convict Casey Anthony yet they think with these trumped up charges they have a chance
When he was told, “you don’t need to do that”, he should have backed off entirely. That said, this has assumed absurd proportions. It also has clearly shown the administration and black community for what they are. This is pure politics now.
Probably one third of those communists are in the GOP. :)
no because you have an intervening supervening criminal act.
I look to have more immunity clauses put in place on the stand your ground.
Also prosecutors HATE stand your ground laws because the like discouraging people from defending themselves. When criminals die, prosecutors lose jobs.
Ask why appoint from jacksonville? why not pensacola? or Daytona, or naples? it was a political choice for a “team player” to ensure the human sacrifice goes well.
If that is the case, it should be enough to let the peasants know where they stand when it comes to the power structure of the Banana Republic of the United States.
First they came for Zimmerman, but I did not speak up because it wasn't me...
There is no need to waste my time on you.
“I think you are confusing the law with facts and justice.”
I’m just amazed that folks here can make up facts as they go along. As far as Zimmerman getting arrested, I really couldn’t give a crap one way or another.
Come to think of it, you’re part right. I do believe the law should be about Justice. Silly me.
Unless they have something that hasn’t hit the media, then it seems like a Hail Mary charge.
I’m guessing that they have something that they haven’t revealed yet. I think Zimmerman said something between his first interview with the police and today that put him in legal jeopardy.
Time will tell.
This is a “I’m charging him to get these race baiters off my back” once he’s acquitted Corey can say “Hey at least I tried” these race baiters didnt give a damn about this incident for a MONTH, then all of a sudden they gave a damn..its all political, to help Obama..its sickening
Facts are hard things to ignore. You don't know what the prosecutor has, neither do I.
Parroting PMSNBC? Sorry, been there, done that. Know the process, seen it at work. Don't like what I say, don't respond. That way we don't see how ignorant you are.
Enjoy life in your cave, maybe you'll evolve enough to think, instead of react.
You're wrong. Latino "leaders" have already thrown Zimmerman under the bus. They will be in full solidarity with the Black "leaders" on this. Just as Black "leaders" have been silent on the ethnic cleansing of Black neighborhoods by Hispanic gangsters.
As I always say on these threads, the heels never feud among themselves.
While I don't believe in the "rapture," I can see why so many white Protestants do. When everyone hates you you just wish you could go away and make it all stop. Besides . . . then the comrades would start fighting amongst themselves, and seeing that would be really fun!
I seriously doubt you’ve been right about anything in your entire life. I’m sure you got this correct, which is not the same as right, because you think along the same lines as these idiots.
I hope smarter people than you actually sit on the jury.
Bite me dumwiz
While not technically “Double Jeopardy”, this certainly reeks of it.
DA already made a decision, now reversing under political pressure from socialist and race-baiters.
Siege Hiel under the new KKK order!
Last night our local CBS affiliate was still using the pic of Trayvon as a kid for their coverage.
This morning I called, they claimed that it was the ONLY pic available.
I sent them some newer pics, but do not expect to see them used tonight.
Bite me dumwiz
Um, you don’t REALLY expect a fair trial in this coming Show Trial?
The outcome is predetermined.
Mr. Zimmerman is about to be sacrificed on the altar of political correctness resurgence.
This is a toward justifying the next claim of discrimination by anyone who fails to vote for the Oboma-fuer.
This arrest truly dispirits me. Like I said, it’s all been about money. Justice has nothing to with this. I’m wondering if justice matters to anybody in public office anymore.
NO substitute for Prosecutorial investigation.
I pray not because your info is a month old and all of it is wrong.
I left my truck to go into the grocery store so that makes me an aggressor and everyone at the store had the right to beat the crap out of me?
Damn, I'm glad I conceal carry too.
Even that’s not foolproof. The two white British tourists were killed by a black even after they showed him that they had no money. He had every intention of killing them, telling some people near him before he walked over to the the tourists, “Watch these crackers” and laughing. They pleaded for their lives and he killed them like a low IQ, agression-ridden, no-impulse-control-having savage.
They are already trying to trademark his name.
Your NBC supplied "facts" are a month old.
Well worth another LOL!
Good God...we have found nirvana in human form!!!
Were you my mother in law?
RIghtwardHo claims to be a prosecutor. Apparently the Nifong variety. Amazing that anyone could get so many things wrong. LOL
Amazing the idiots crawling out of the woodwork.
Especially when every "fact" he has stated has been debunked here on FR 500 times.
Except of course for the ones he made up today.
Rightward, you's been a hoe alright....100% wrong every step of the way.
Markos is calling you to come home......
Capt. Zimmerman? Law Enforcement Hero? The delusion is strong in you it is.
Martin was a beginner ninja too.
