Response to apples and oranges (Original post)

Sun Jul 14, 2013, 11:45 PM

104. They're not anonymous...

They are not anonymous. People did see them in the courthouse. I perfectly understand why they wouldn't want to come out in the public. They know a good percentage of the public loathes them. That's tough. To know that people who don't know you, loathe you.

But, they did what they saw fit and they will live with the consequences of it. Eventually, they will get with like minded individuals...if they haven't already, and after a good ego boost, we'll see them on television. Not all of them, though.

I believe the reason it took so long for a verdict, and the reason they asked for additional information is that they had to convince someone, maybe a couple of jurors not to convict.

It would be one thing if they went behind closed doors and came right back out. Then we would know this thing was fixed. But, at least one of them thought George belonged behind bars and caved. That's why it took 14 or however many hours.

So, eventually, the true believers will emerge. George's friend that gave him a ride. You know, the 2nd time he changed his story...that guy has already written a book and is making money.

They'll be out. Just watch and see. But, I don't want to see them. I'm sickened now at the thought of them.

But, you already know what they'd say if they could. "There just wasn't enough evidence. Yes...we know George was armed and dangerous, followed an unarmed black teenager, then shot and killed him...but, I mean, that wasn't enough to send a man to jail over. We just weren't convinced that he deserved jail for killing him.

Trayvon was armed with a sidewalk. No, we can't explain why he didn't have George's DNA on him after beating him senselessly...but, really. Is it worth jail time? Of course, not. You have to kill someone of value for jail time."
