Fighting - 

Sit black jurors and they will almost always vote in favor of the black party involved.

The rub is if you don't sit enough black jurors you can get the verdict changed on that alone. 

 

Zimmerman is going to be found guilty because of white guilt basically. That and fear of black people. 


It would be a travesty if he was found guilty.  I think he did some stupid shit that night but ultimately he shot trayvon in self defense.   When the story first broke, based on the info the media was putting out (msnbc in particular), I thought the opposite.  I thought zim went out that night to to find himself a darkie to shoot, but after the facts came out, after the truth came out about tre tre and his past and his extracurricular activities and his propensity for violence, I think zim acted stupidly but the actual shooting was in self defense.

In NY the DA would have charged him with manslaughter and let him plead his case from the get go. This whole circus would not have happpened..The whole issue of race in this issue is being manufactured.
My evidence, NBC employees disgracefully faking audio to make Zimmerman look like a racist.
When this issue happened no one knew anything about Zimmerman. Comments on the news story was assuming some white jewish neighberhood watch guy shot a black teen. Once more information came out that the guy was part hispanic, the whole spin started to change. Now you have newspapers calling him "white hispanic" George Zimmerman. Would they ever call President Obama "white black President Obama?"

THis whole trial should have been a straightforward manslaughter trial where Zimmerman had to show IMOP - intent means opportunity and preclusion and that he was in fear of his life at the time of the shooting.
My condolences to the teens family who lost their son.

In NY he would have been locked up for 3 years for a statutory charge of just carrying a handgun.

Half of these prospective jurors sound borderline retarded.  Then again, half of the population is borderline retarded so this is right in line with what I'd expect.

I'm telling you, they are fucking retarded.   Then again, it's Florida.   

I wonder how many times during this trial we'll see the bugs bunny gif on this thread.

BeatonHauff -  Anybody else here the brother Robert Zimmerman on Opie and Anthony, and both Opie and Anthony and Jim a bit were ridding this guy's nuts pretty hard, agreeing with absolutely everything he said. Phone Post

What exactly did he say that was not to agree with? I don't recall Robert saying anything that contradicts the physical evidence/ testimony that we have been privy to so far.

The press is hoping Zimmerman will walk.  That way they can try to instigate race riots. 

The press is doing everything it can to make Zimmerman look guilty, but they really want a not guilty verdict for the shitstorm it will create.  How ironic is that.

Thatis not entirely true.   Look at the other ecent Zimmerman thread.

 

The evidence is overwhelming in Zimmerman's favor.

 

Once this starts, people are gonna lose faith in the Media because they won't recongnize the case based on the facts.

"The evidence is overwhelming in Zimmerman's favor."

It's fine to have formed an opinion, but no one has heard the evidence. All you have heard is media reports. The evidence will be presented at the trial. That's how the system works.

Thanks for making this.

Can we keep this thread to what happens in the proceedings and not clutter it up with the same old arguments (until they get relevant to the proceedings of course)?
