so justice was served

I tried to tell you guys this was an impossible fight.Everyone was so emotionally wrapped up they wouldn't listen.

The DA had NO CHANCE in this fight.If anyone had set their emotions aside and looked at the case it was clear

87. Problem...All things were not equal.

One was armed, actively stalking another. aggression, intent. I saw the case clearly. One party did not have equal footing from the very minute of HIS birth. He was a Black male, assumed to be a criminal. Where is the justice for an innocent boy who had to die the death of a hardened criminal? What on GOD's green earth did that child do to deserve that?

Not one juror thought of how Trayvon felt? He too had the right to use whatever means necessary to save his life, including his fists. What if Trayvon had been able to get the gun from Zimmerman and he shot him to save his life, would this same jury rule him not guilty? All things were never equal in this case.

... while in a fist fight. Have you ever participated/witnessed a fight ni which that did not happen?

I mean, maybe were I unarmed and faced with gun I might, I dunno, say "dude, you have gun, so fuck off and watch me beat you to death, mother-fucker!".

But were I carrying a gun against a teenager? Oh, yeah. I would definitely cry like a baby and plead that he not kill me so I would not be forced to kill him.

Actually, I might have voted hide because, as horribly disgusting celebrating Trayvon's death may be, I might have still voted to hide the insult of those celebrating it.

I am so glad that I have been absolutely swamped at work the past couple weeks. I almost NEVER post on weekends, but I am now because I have hardly touched DU the past two weeks. And horribly when I have, it has been like reading Storm Front or some such disgusting site.

If there is not a massive purge ... I might as well go to some neutral site to read Rightists debating us using the impeccable logic that a past-present participle is not the exact same as a future, pluperfect participle.

Ha! Got us on that one! I mean, it's not like 100% of the people reading the statement knew exactly what was meant. There was a slilght technical inaccuracy. Like "high capacity magazine" does not equal "high capacity clip" to the gunners.

jus·tice

Do you still want to claim justice has been served?

99. Yes, along with all the other Zimmy apologists who insist justice was served.

They know very well what they're saying, they just feel that the legal system gives them cover to express their racism. They're saying "See, the law agrees with me, I can't be a racist! Justice was done!" They're gleeful in their celebration. It's utterly disgusting.

26. It doesn't matter.

Their is a dead child with no one held accountable. There was never a chance of Zimmerman going to jail when you see there had to be a protest just to get a day in court. Children of color just will never be safe in America.

37. No a bad law was served today

which is a big difference. Self defense is, and should be, an affirmative defense. It should have to be proven by the asserter, not disproven by the state.

39. Justice was served

but they got it wrong IMHO.

But we have to live with what our justice system is. Trial by jury, innocent until convicted.


I would not bet against a federal civil rights case being brought against zimmerman.

Its a tired, transparent notion designed to keep the masses down and let them feel empowered occasionally

42. Congratulations. I hope you enjoy your gloating.

This was an eminently winnable case for the prosecution. I'm a lawyer and i was appalled about their incompetence.

to go into self-imposed exile because they had bet you that Zimmerman would be found guilty, you have really hit bottom, guy.

You have no control over what seems to be a disturbingly unattractive and natural impulse to gloat, once it takes hold.

An unarmed kid, doing absolutely nothing wrong, was murdered by some creepy vigilante wannabe cop; and said creepy vigilante wannabe cop gets away with it. How is that justice?

81. Justice was NOT served! Trayvon Martin had just as much right to

 

walk those streets FREE OF HARASSMENT as anyone else.

Trayvon Martin is dead but George Zimmerman is free. How in the fuck is that justice?

This case and verdict are causing me to question my beliefs in fundamental constitutional principles like trial by jury. The not-guilty verdict here runs so counter to my sense of what happened (self-appointed vigilante takes law into his own hands) that I know something is very wrong, fundamentally wrong.

If it isn't the trial by jury system, then what is making that huge stink I smell?

defense lawyers to the exact same jury, but the victim had been white and the defendant black, there would have been a 2nd degree murder conviction
