Zimmerman found not guilty..

Post by Sigma62Delta » Sun Jul 14, 2013 8:41 pm

And to no ones surprise Zimmerman was found not guilty... And Obama calls for calm amidst no crimes of real consequence.

I have to ask. Why would Zimmerman go into hiding? Bernie Goetz still lives in brooklyn to this day in the same house he grew up in.

North Floridians are still "in the south" and tend to become vengeful when they feel someone has been wronged. I don't think this will escalate into a Hatfields and McCoys situation but I wouldn't be surprised if the Zimmermans find themselves targets of passive aggression to the point the whole family wants to move.

Of course North Floridians are also mainly white and southern..

Not by much margin in Sanford. Black 40%, White 55%, the rest marginal. Zimmerman may find himself surrounded by unhappy people.

I figure he has made his bones. Worse case scenario is vandalism. Especially since he will be getting his pistol and carry permit returned to him. Nothing discourages crime like the killing of criminals.

Zimmerman would go into hiding because his life has been threatened, what makes it worse is someone posted his address on twitter telling people if they want him they'll know where to find him. The guy was found not guilty people need to get over it and accept the jury's decision and to leave him alone.

Dead right. 10 minutes debunks entire media narrative on Zimmerman: http://patriotaction.net/video/video/sh ... hare_video.

OK Leftists, let's hear the rebuttal. This ought to be good.

Well of course. They looked like a bunch of kooks when they said he was a white guy then a white Hispanic and now just Hispanic.. That would have been like saying the president is black Caucasian lol.

They also have a lot of trouble explaining why the black women on the all female jury thought Zimmerman was not only not guilty but completely justified in using deadly force according to the statute..

Did anyone hear what the judge told the prosecution at the beginning of the trial?? That if it were not SOLELY for political pressure there was not enough evidence for an arrest warrant much less a trial...

You also don't see the new black panthers calling for killing Zimmerman the whitey for some reason. Maybe it is because black people calling for killing hispanics could have negative repercussions...

The Zimmerman case isn't a good case to prove anything. It doesn't prove that racism is still alive and well in the American criminal justice system (which is certainly true but this case doesn't demonstrate that). Nor does it prove that the Florida gun laws are overly lenient (although they are, in my opinion). The video that Mr. Hyre posted demonstrates that the "liberal" press has not given us all the facts (if we take the video at face value which I have no particular reason not to), but the video itself also omitted some relevant information, like the fact that Mr. Zimmerman was told by the police to stand down, and the general sense that on a public street no one should have to be worried about "getting away" from any else. Teenagers and middle aged folks shouldn't be scared of each other, regardless of what color they are, but the state of US society is such that people live in fear of each other.

Zimmerman got off for a simple reason. There wasn't enough evidence to convict him...partly because he killed the only person who might have had compelling evidence against him. The self-defense claim is as old as dirt and it is often used because it often works. The "stand your ground" law is simply a peculiar modern day incarnation of that idea. Whatever Mr. Zimmerman's faults may be, he was smart enough to make sure that no strong witnesses were left alive. That means he walks.
