Englightened-- they're BOTH gonna need translators. No chance Dee Dee gets his British Public Schoolboy lexicon, and I doubt Morgan speaks Ebonics.

Dee Dee and Piers got ya covered...tune in for the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

--no GZ DNA on Martin, for example--

I recall the ME said they only swabbed/checked for DNA where they had first confirmed blood evidence. No blood, no swab.

Since hands were not bagged, since it was raining, since wet clothes were stored in plastic, that means the most plausible places one might find GZ DNA were destroyed.

The "discussion" we should be having:

No kidding. Imagine the reactions if a law was passed specifically allowing an armed person, including a bystander, to kill anyone involved in this knockout game.

A. Great! That'll put a stop to this kind of behavior and save some lives.

B. Whatchu talkin' 'bout, Willis? That law needs to be overturned! Justice for Trayvon!

Rob Crawford
The uncritical coverage of the Zimmerman verdict protests is reminiscent of the MSM's fawning over OWS.

No surprise; the Occutards are part of the marches, desperately seeking attention.

Someone like Ted Cruz needs to get out there and ask why, after Zimmerman was found not guilty in a court of law and no evidence of racism found by the FBI, are Reid, Holder and Obama continuing to persecute Mr. Zimmerman? Is is only because Mr. Zimmerman is Hispanic? Is Mr. Zimmerman the one having his civil rights violated? Are Reid, Holder and Obama the only true racists in this fiasco?

CR

I'd to propose a reality series like one of those on PBS like "Manor House" or "Pioneer House". In this one, a group of limousine liberals or journalists from Manhattan, Santa Monica and DC would get to live for 6 months in George Zimmerman's neighborhood. No guns, neighborhood watches or cop wanabees allowed. At the end we get to hear their thoughts about Stand Your Ground and self defense laws. I just can't think of an appropriate title.

maryrose

These demonstrations are pointless. They will not bring back Trayvon. A money donation to your local Girls Club or Boys Club or Youth Recreation programs would be a better use of your time and energy. It is summer, these kids should be working part -time{thanks to Preezy that is the only employment available} and playing baseball or soccer.All the young people I know are engaged in positive, fun activities. This demonstrating is a waste of time. The jury has decided. Race based politics and ginning up the Black vote so that Bammy can win a second term is not a good enough reason to sentence an upstanding young man who ibn defense of his own life was forced to take another's life. Trayvon was a felon, a thief and a suspenede student. He had little parental supervision, was smoking marijuana{also illegal and robbing houses which is where the jewelry came from. We need to focus on the real facts. "the expression "you don't need to do that" does not translate to "Get in your car and leave".

Because that's the way the city's "government" is arranged. Half the alderman are selected by the gangs, the other half promise to keep the working people safe from the gangs. The Revrums keep the low-information voters convinced that taking on the gangs would mean they all get gunned down.

Anything that puts the cash flow from the gangs to the pols at risk (like armed citizens) is the direst emergency imaginable; anything that keeps the gangs in power (like random murder) is fine and dandy.

These demonstrations are pointless. They will not bring back Trayvon.

That's not the point. The point of the protests is (a) to shake down or otherwise make non-blacks feel guilty and apologetic; (b) to help the Democratic party, unions, the usual lefty institutions.

The unstated view is that black teenagers have a right to sucker-punch and beat up unsuspecting people of any race or ethnicity, without being subject to the indignity of getting shot.

Clarice-- so we are all agreed that GZ does not yet have immunity from the Jury verdict, correct?

It especially stands out as being dangerous considering the NSA social media snooping & the Paula Deen brouhaha. Any American could be prosecuted for hating at some point in their life if the authorities want to ruin them. Anyone.

jimmyk

IANAL, but my reading of this:

http://www.lawserver.com/law/state/florida/statutes/florida_statutes_776-032

is that GZ gets immunity from civil action not from an acquittal, but from a ruling that he is immune from criminal prosecution. No such ruling was made, and in fact he obviously was subject to criminal prosecution, as wrong as it was. So it would seem that he does not have immunity, though perhaps a judge could grant him that. I would not be as confident as MOM that a FL judge would do that, even if the law prescribes it.

I would not be as confident as MOM that a FL judge would do that, even if the law prescribes it.

This time he has a jury decision that really can't be interpreted any other way, and the prospect of an immediate appeal if immunity is denied. IANAL either, but if I were, I'd be about as confident as MOM appears to be.

JIB

Piers Morgan will be interviewing Dee Dee exclusively.

In cursive?

jimmyk,

Back in the day, we did a study on building a barrage in the lagoon to keep the city from flooding due to tidal surges. Oh, the clamor it wrought from the Save Venice mob. They want to save the city but without taming mother nature. Gaia is so proud. Most of that Save Venice is American money.

Then the mayor had us do a study on a subway/pre-metro system from Mestre with stops in the various campos ending in Lido. The way it would work was that everyone is issued snorkeling gear and at each stop there is a pressure locker much like a torpedo tube that ejects the passenger in the "street". Swimming was optional.

Jane

If I had to come up with a prescription on how to change this country from the bastion of freedom it was to a racist bigoted yukplace, I couldn't have done it better than Eric Holder.

Impeach him!

Clarice

It won't be before nelson. As I understand it, the Martins would have to sue GZ (which like DoT I think would be il-advised) then GZ moves to dismiss on the basis of immunity. Since we've seen the "best evidence" the state could provide that this wasn't self defense, I think MOM's right--they'll get immunity.

And on that left vs right on the first punch issue . . . (Background: IIRC, one of the problems the State had with the recreation video was that it showed a left-handed punch by TM to start the fisticuffs. MOM cited a medical opinion that the blow came from GZ's right, which prompted this recreation.)

Anyone who's ever boxed (or even watched a match) knows that when speed is of the essence (e.g., to preserve surprise for a sucker-punch), a right-handed boxer will typically jab with the left rather than wind up a big right. Far from being a point that discredits that account, TM being a righty throwing a left is the most plausible scenario . . . in fact it'd have been a bit suspicious otherwise.

DebinNC

ABC interviewed Corey and her 3 stooges last night (LUN). They're doubling down on GZ's guilt, now contending he pulled out his gun before the fight started which is the reason Trayvon was screaming for help. I can't believe prosecutors are allowed to make unproven assertions like that post-verdict with impunity.

"Someone like Ted Cruz needs to get out there and ask why, after Zimmerman was found not guilty in a court of law and no evidence of racism found by the FBI"

No evidence of racism- dear God man you are really that dimwitted-have you literally no deductive reasoning or critical thinking skills at-fucking-all?

What made Zimmerman get out of his car, follow Martin and call the police? A bag of skittles with a violent past? An ice tea with a history of breaking and entering?

Travon Martin was a nigger. That's the hard horrible disgusting truth of why batman took it upon himself to carry a loaded gun while following a Trayvon at night and make that situation incredibly dangerous and potentially violent.

Trayvon was a nigger.


Do you honestly believe Batman would have followed a white boy in wholesome clothing or a white business man or a white woman? Of course not, he followed Martin because he was black. A kid just off his 16 birthday died because he had the misfortune to be born a different color and that's going to change.


Acting suspiciously? Seriously? Talking on the phone with your buddy is a clear sign you're about to rob a house? Really???? Talking on the phone warrants the cops being called? Eating skittles may get followed, intimidated and scared shitless by an armed man.

Rob Crawford
Imagine the reactions if a law was passed specifically allowing an armed person, including a bystander, to kill anyone involved in this knockout game.

Arguably, it's already legal.

o The target is typically surprised; a surprise attack removes any duty to retreat.

o A surprised target has done nothing to escalate the confrontation; there hasn't been a confrontation prior to the attack!

o Rendering someone unconscious seems to me to count as "grievous bodily harm", particularly since people have been killed or paralyzed in these attacks.

So, at least as I understand the laws, and remember IANAL, all the conditions for self-defense are met. So long as those conditions are met, you can also act to defend others.

The defense of others typically is questionable because of the escalation condition; unless you know there was no escalation before the attack, you may be intervening on the wrong side.

I wouldn't risk this in a Blue Hell, of course.

DublinDave

Sheesh...'are you really that dimwitted'...the irony....

Disappearing for 3 minutes and not taking the high road home about 100 feet away, and then sucker punching someone is definitely the innocence of a child.

I don't recall them arguing that in court.

I wonder if any of them have ever heard the term "defamation per se". They're about to get quite familiar with it, if not.

That's the point I was trying to make to Barbara, CT.
A person who has had a bit of training or is a wannabe fighter, like TM, is probably the person most likely to use their non dominant hand first.
A complete novice may use his dominant hand because it just feels right and a highly skilled fighter has learned how to lead with his dominant hand, especially when trying to knock someone out.
Like you, I would have been surprised if TM didn't lead with his left.

"wouldn't that impact the Federal trial?"

If, at that trial, she says anything inconsistent with what she says to Piers, it the latter can be used to impeach her trial testimony.

I don't think this jury verdict would even be admissible in a stand-your-ground hearing in a civil suit. GZ would have to start from scratch and prevail by a preponderance of the evidence.

jimmyk

I can't believe prosecutors are allowed to make unproven assertions like that post-verdict with impunity.

I agree with Rob, this should be further grounds for a lawsuit.

You have to wonder what Corey's motivation is. She can't change the outcome of the trial. It's hard to see any effect of her statements other than to foment violence. Does she really think it will get her a lot of votes? And that's worth the damage? She's scum.

Plenty of pastyfaced white kids --acne and all-- wearing hoodies and into 'knockout' culture who look just as sketchy and crime risky (just go to Southie Mass, Dublin ROI, or Birmingham UK) as a hoodie kid with a higher melanin count. No sale DD, culture is destiny-- if you're a hoodie wearing, Purple Drank dope smoking, knockout game punching, gangsta wannabe,you'll find trouble soon enough in the USA, ROI, UK where ever, and you'll eventually kill someone or be killed. Obummer said we're in post racial America and Holder says we're cowards for not talking about race. So let's talk knockout, and Purple Drank and crips/blood colors, and those 50-100 young black men shot and killed every week by other young black men.The only 'racial' issue to any of this is too many young black men join gansta culture.

More from the ABC interview last night:
.............................................
"It's common sense [why the gunshot immediately stopped the screaming]. No one stops screaming for help unless they are certain they killed him," Corey said. "He had said he thought he missed."

The attorneys say Zimmerman's team exaggerated his injuries and that rain made the pictures of his bloodied head seem worse than they were. They also say his legal team underplayed how fit he was at the time of the shooting.

"They called him one "lucky man" for his acquittal and had a response to lead defense attorney Mark O'Mara's statement in an interview after the trial that Zimmerman might have to re-arm in response to the death threats he faces.

"He better be careful," Guy said
...............................................

West refused to shake Guy's hand after the verdict. He was right to do so.

Hey, any of you Left Coast types know how I could shop this screenplay idea around?

George Zimmerman was a humble Latino man who worked for the underprivileged in his community until one day tragedy struck: He was viciously attacked by a member of a racial group that (A) we don't need so much any more, (B) will keep voting (D) anyway, and (C) plays well as the bad guy w the lucrative international market. He was quickly exonerated by an official investigation - but his troubles were only beginning.

A racist Republican governor (Christopher Heyerdahl) appoints a racist Republican prosecutor (an Ann Ramsey type) who will stop at nothing to put our innocent Hispanic hero behind bars. His only hope against these villainous Republican government officials? A couple of all-star trial lawyers (Chris Cooper and Patrick Stewart? Just spitballing here).

To keep the narrative focus, we downplay the whole Martin family/Sharpton/etc business, so the audience can concentrate on Zimmerman vs the Republicans - he works with black kids, he votes for Obama, etc etc; no need to make this into some racially divisive thing. The villains are clearly the white Republican Tea Party types.

The big hole right now is the lead - George Lopez would kill for this, but he might not be sympathetic enough; Jorge Lopez is likeable and vulnerable, but too white....

WTF - How can they say that when they never even brought that out at trial?

And what if Zimmerman did have his gun out- Why didn't Trayvon just say "Hey Dude - chill out Cuz, I am just walking to my Dad's girlfriends house about 100 feet down the path (or whatever) - her name is Brandy" - Instead of sucker punching Zimmerman?

Do they really think a child like Trayvon was capable of stopping a man with a gun with his fists?

One of the Ed Week columnists wrote today about the emotional trauma inflicted on minority youth from realizing that the mostly white jury had allowed GZ to get away with murder.

No regard of facts. No recognition a jury decided there was not a murder at all. Just trying to get teachers and administrators and minority students riled up by false beliefs.

If he were behaving identically to Trayvon, Yes, Batman would call the popo and keep an eye on him.

Eric Holder Once Again Calls Upon America (The Nation of Cowards) to Speak "Honestly" About Race; Offers No Honesty Himself

He mentions the DoJ's ongoing investigation into the matter without stating whether or not a legal decision has been made. He goes on to say that whatever the DoJ's decision, we must not let this latest opportunity to speak "honestly about race" pass, as we, the nation of cowards, have done so many times before.

Attorney General Eric Holder, in his first post-verdict comments, confirmed Monday during a speech in Washington, D.C., that his department continues to investigate while signaling concern for the position of the Martin family and those -- such as the NAACP -- pressuring the DOJ. He said the department is "mindful of the pain felt by our nation" over the "tragic, unnecessary shooting death" of Martin.

"The Justice Department shares your concern -- I share your concern," Holder said.

the shooting was unnecessary-- Indeed-- TM could have gone to the Condo, or called 911 if he felt threatened by GZ. But he didn't do that -- did he? Instead he saw a soft little fat guy that he could 'knockout' and Text later about while doing Purple Drank. Sorry, facts are stubborn things.

What a maroon. Does she seriously believed GZ was screaming because TM was alive? Is she incapable of seeing the obvious correlation between GZ shooting TM and TM ceasing the assault? (Would've loved to see that one in testimony. MOM: "Why did you stop screaming?" GZ: "He stopped hitting me.")

Moreover, Corey repeating every Crump talking point as if it made sense makes me wonder about hers. How did this bimbo ever get a reputation for anything other than weak-minded vindictiveness?

"I suspect you're wrong on that narrow point"

In light of the statute to which you link, I am definitely wrong. In the absence of such a statue, it would certainly be inadmissible. I'm not sure how a judge In a subsequent hearing, or a jury in a civil trial would treat the verdict once it is in evidence. A judge would understand that it plainly doesn't decide the immunity question, although in a civil jury trial it might be hard to get a jury to buy the idea that it doesn't decide the liability question. Interesting statute.

A judge would understand that it plainly doesn't decide the immunity question . . .

I think that's right, though the immunity provisions of the SYG statute muddies the water there, too. (I.e., the "uses force as permitted" bit is undefined, and the case law merely fleshes out how the determination is to be made in a criminal proceeding.)

I remain confident in the outcome of any prospective hearing, though I'll admit part of that confidence is dependent on MOM doing the pleading (and that despite a mixed track record with JDN).
