    with that edited version, it really sounded like coons. then they played that one part over and over and over. Im glad they put the truth out there though. Someone on here thought it was punks in the beginning. So good ears to that person, *sorry i dont wanna go back and look and then retype this.

    Grand jury convenes on Tues.

    I have no doubt Zimmerman is nervous.

    And he should be.

    Indeed.

    In the Mike Wallace thread, someone posted that you could never see any biases in Wallace's interviews or reporting. I'm starting to wonder if he was among the last with that ability and ethic. When you start making the news and not just reporting it, you're no better than the scum you're framing or protecting.
    You can't "nu uh" death. That's bad debating.

    As for me, I'm Irish, English and Scottish mainly. White pride here!

    Are you serious? Have enough of us not shot down your ridiculous double standards on this thread? There is racism ALL...ACROSS...THE....BOARD. Stick with the topic, which is Trayvon Martin. Not how blinded you are to actual facts.

    That is going to be really easy to disprove medically. Trust me on that.

    Unless Zimmerman is hiding about somewhere downright half dead and profoundly brain damaged. But, since he is not in a hospital, that would be pushing it.

    Oh well. Glad to learn he has stupid as all get out legal counsel.

    Enough with people hassling eachother over race in this thread. You want to make comments about this or that involved party being racist, fine. But no more shooting at eachother on the subject because it violates rule 4 and causes needless arguments, grudges and other issues that aren't productive to the thread or this board's membership.

    Just watched JVM's show tonight re: Trayvon Martin case. George Z. is trying to put up a website called www.zimmermandefense.com to solicit funds for his living expenses and lawyer fees since he was "forced" to quit his job due to a "life-changing" incident. Have to take JVM's word for it because when I tried to get it on on my computer, I got one of those GoDaddy domain sites. According to JVM, George Z's lawyer confirmed this report. Even if he doesn't end up putting the website up, the call has gone out that he is seeking donations.

    Please allow me to vent before my head explodes. Mr. Z. has a right to put up this website and has a right to express himself and solicit funds for his defense. But is it just me or is this tacky or what? Great way to switch the emphasis from a dead teenager to himself. Along with the "shaken baby" defense that one of his lawyers suggested, this crap has hit an all-time low. If his head injury was so freaking serious, why was he not taken to a hospital ER that night? We all know what happened to the actress Natasha Richardson with her head injury and the consequences of her not seeking help. Why wouldn't the EMTs have said "We need to check this out in order for you to be safe"?


    I understand the desire of Mr. Z's family and friends to help him but everytime they try to provide an explanation, his whole story gets more implausible and more and more, I am screaming at my TV set in frustration.

    That was not meant in any disrespect to the boy that was killed. I agree that not all kids who dress in this manner are bad but....how do you tell them apart if you don't know them? Let's face facts it does make a statement toward the gang banger bad boy look since they did start this trend of pants hanging off their asses hats on sideways hoodies covering their faces. It just makes people uncomfortable and suspicious. A reason to unjustly kill someone? of course not.

    Maybe he had the hoodie up because it was raining, dont you think? I haven't seen anywhere where it said his pants were sagging.

    That GZ website is back up and working for the moment.

    At the bottom it says this:

    They take mastercard, etc. as well.

No one but white bread has ever lived there and one of those pearly whites was a drug dealer.

    I do not understand why some people do not see the race thing. It's Miami, it's race up one side and down the other, and it's not the first incident, nor will it be the last. Lynard Skynard tee shirts may not seem a factor in race but for some it is, just as a hoodie isn't a factor, but was to that piece of shit GZ.

    I personally don't give a pickled fuck what kind of history Martin had. I don't care how big is was, how old, or what color, he did not have a weapon, he was screaming for his life, there were no marks on his hands, but Z had a fucking gun and blew him away. That ain't right. He should have been arrested on the spot. And because he wasn't I hope soon LE heads will fucking roll into a limestone sinkhole in Miami.

    I saw on the Today Show this morning that GZ has a website. You can also donate money to his cause - for legal & for living expenses. They interviewed a gentleman who stated "Why is he asking for money if he's innocent??".

    And Cindy - thanks for that outstanding post. Summed it all up for me.

    Very true. How do you tell the difference between the thug looking for trouble and the innocent kid who's dressing to be cool? The thing is though, most thinking people would just cross the street, not pull a gun.

    If you're stupid enough to call the cops on an eight year old playing in the street, you're probably not going to take time to consider the weather's effect on someone's choice of dress.
    You can't "nu uh" death. That's bad debating.

    I think that now that they are going to charge him, you guys might be right, we will find him dead somewhere, or he has left the country.

    When the lawyers held that press conference that was the first thing that flitted thru my head when they said they didn't know exactly where he was, that he'd been out of touch for a few days.

    If he really believes and knows he did nothing wrong then there is not a good enough reason to kill himself.
    He has his share of supporters.

    Betcha he wishes he'd have kept his ass in his house that night.

    I would think walking through the neighborhood at 2 a.m. is a reason that a cop would use to stop you no matter what race you are.

    That's the point though. There are tons of different races making up the police force nowadays as well. This whole "black people and minorities" get profiled is a complete pipe dream of the past, and although it still occurs in certain instances, it is no longer a valid argument or rebuttal to any kind of "racism" conversation.
    But most like chaos, stopless, cool,
    Without a chance, or spar,
    Or even a report of land
    To justify despair.
