Bud L: Blacks DO NOT call the Police for every slight, inconvient issue. Trayvon probaby smoked some weed on the way to and from the store. Maybe he had outstanding warrants. No black wants to talk to the Police. Here in San Diego, I've been stopped and asked 4x in 4 weeks about/ because of my appearence: 'Ever been arrested?...been to jail?...have outstanding warrants?...'Let's see your Driver License..."all because I look homeless and a bum.
And I'm a predominently a white cauciasan.
This Zimmerman fool called 9/11, was told to 'stand down" (maybe too confusing a sentence for a Latino), and he continued to track Trayvon and confronted him.
Probably asked the kid some invasive questions and the kid perceived him as an ass-hole and a threat.
Zimmerman asked for the beating and will get involuntary manslaughter....8 years...out in 3. Or, they'll be riots in FL like in LA.

If Zimmerman had said, "hey N*gger what are you doing in my neighborhood?" and Martin, sufficiently enraged, had completed beating Zimmerman to death would that have been manslaughter, murder, or self defense?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/12/13 at 2:50

wtf does that have to do with anything? We are talking about what ACTUALLY happened.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/12/13 at 2:51

I just gave you the legal definition of manslaughter and expected you to apply that to the circumstances, not make up some silly, fake situation. I would've expected better comprehension skills from you, Ben.

By: yogiman on 7/12/13 at 2:51

Correct, B2, dementia continues. That is apparently why you won't (or can't) offer even one tiny bit of knowledge to embarrass me because of my lack of knowledge; according to you.

And by the way, those 4 points you posted would have to be considered in Zimmerman's favor; don't you think?

I mean, if you're flat on your back and a husky young man is busting your nose and banging your head against the concrete area, wouldn't that worry the hell out of you?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/12/13 at 2:53

dargent, I'm afraid it's going to get ugly no matter which way the jury goes, thanks to the media turning this into a racial issue.

By: dargent7 on 7/12/13 at 2:54

BD: Only Zimmerman knows what he actually said...my bet is that it was 'provoking".
No 17 year old kid, black or white, wants to be asked questions " bout what they're doing", "why are you here?"...The answer is, 'None of your fu!ckin' business..." if all he had was Skittles and an ice tea. Which is the case.
And Zimmerman's wounds were superficial...nothing like 90% of domestic violence cases you see.

By: BenDover on 7/12/13 at 3:02

Even with the ridiculous scenario of Zimmerman chasing people he suspected of thugs around the neighborhood and screaming "What are you n!ggers doing in my neighborhood?!?"; does he have a right to defend himself if one of his 'suspects' starts pounding him to death?

By: yogiman on 7/12/13 at 3:02


Just a few bangs will bust you head, but when they get to be harder and faster bangs, it will crack your skull.

So, assuming that happened, would Trayvon be in court on a murder charge or would he be considered defending himself?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/12/13 at 3:03

Well, if he kills them that falls under the definition of manslaughter.

By: yogiman on 7/12/13 at 3:07

That, of course, is presuming Trayvon beat Zimmerman to death physically instead of shooting him.

I wish I knew how to send you guys that picture of Trayvon before it was taken off the news sites. It certainly isn't one of a tender 12 year of child.

By: BenDover on 7/12/13 at 3:10

No, if that were the scenario and Martin had killed Zimmerman it could be Manslaughter but more likely Murder 2.

When someone starts beating you to death because you are a "creepy ass cracker" and you respond with deadly force it's called self-defense.

By: bfra on 7/12/13 at 3:15

Ben & yogi can't deal with FACTS in any situation, they have to make up their own stupid tales and then ask stupid questions.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/12/13 at 3:19

But what does that have to do with anything since that is not remotely what happened? Zimmerman received superficial wounds. None of his clothing was even stretched or torn.

By: BenDover on 7/12/13 at 3:20

I'm the only one who's pointed out any facts. Everyone else seems to think Zimmerman was decked out in camo and face paint in the neighborhood deer stand waiting for n!ggers to walk by... and that from this position it's Zimmerman's job to prove he wasn't.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/12/13 at 3:21

If Zimmerman had not been following him around and would have just made the 911 call none of this would have happened. Martin didn't know that Zimmerman was part of the Neighborhood Watch so I can see how he may have viewed him as some weirdo following him around for no reason. Isn't he allowed to defend himself?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 7/12/13 at 3:23

I've done nothing but point out facts. You're the one who keeps posting some made up scenarios that have nothing to do with reality. Zimmerman followed, provoked and killed an unarmed teenager. Those are the facts.

By: bfra on 7/12/13 at 3:48

Blanket - That is (according to the testimony) exactly what happened.

Ben you & yogi are trying to make up tales (hilarious), camo ? facepaint ? deer stand? You been nipping & puffing all day?

By: BenDover on 7/12/13 at 4:09

There is no evidence he provoked Martin (which is irrelevant anyway) or that his killing of Martin was not in self defense. State's job is to prove Zimmerman did it... they didn't even try. I predict the jury convicts the lawful gun (via Zimmerman as its proxy) based on white guilt and political correctness; and that Zimmerman is murdered in jail with in the year.

By: bfra on 7/12/13 at 4:15

Ben post more bunk!

By: yogiman on 7/12/13 at 4:20

Not bunk, bfra, facts. Haven't you even bothered to question why the national government stepped in over the state and local police on the issue?

Sorry, I forgot your thinking skills.

Yogi, the bottom line is this man was tried in the media and convicted. If Zimmerman was black, we would never heard this story. Black on black crime is rampant in Chicago, but Obama never goes there or sends the Justice Dept. there to demonstrate.

Our tax dollars were spent to send people to Florida to protest. Our Justice Dept is corrupt and so is the White House.

Blanket, would you want to be tried and convicted by the media? I didn't think so.

By: yogiman on 7/13/13 at 11:33


The biggest question should be: What in the hell is the reason our usurper in office made our government a part of that prosecution... which never should have been?

Was it only because if he had a son he would look like Trayvon and he's justified to throw his false position into the case?

And yes, if Zimmerman was a black man or Travon was a white man, the case would have been dropped when that police department dropped it.

By: budlight on 7/13/13 at 9:57

Gee, Yogi, I'm up at 10:57 pm and no special edition on CP saying Zimmerman was found NOT GUILTY.

oH well! Libs must be sleeping.

By: yogiman on 7/14/13 at 7:09

That's because he was found innocent, budlight. Those women based their decision on the evidence presented instead of like the Obama team and news media wanted them to vote.

I give a mental hug to those women for making an honestly thought decision and telling the administration to go to hell, they made their own honest decisions.

By: budlight on 7/14/13 at 2:12

Yep I agree. But the new black panthers and their ilk are going on rampages. I don't watch tv, but I'm sure they are looting somewhere over this.

Sharpton and Jackson will milk this for all it's worth to them. Obama will incite more hatred and racism over it. And America will continue to look stupid thanks to the media allowing this type of MOB rule.

I feel sorry for his family, but they knew he was not a stand up kid; they knew he was a trouble maker and have hid it. AND his girlfriend lied right off the bat. She said she was 16 and not 18. What's up with that? Pathological liar? Or what?

By: bfra on 7/14/13 at 2:46

Golly, the last few comments fit right in with LIARS, TROUBLE MAKERS, RACIST & BIG MOUTHS always ready to spout off stupid opinions based on their own warped minds. Don't look at FACTS!

By: budlight on 7/14/13 at 8:36

oh shut your pie hole bfra. The Black Panthers? Jessie jackson? Al Sharpton? Yeah, they are all pillars of our society and men of honor and integrity. Jackson's son is in jail. Sharpton jumps on any and all issues, starting with Tawana Brawley (farce).

And now the US Justice Dept. wants to investigate and file charges in a civil suit? How about they file some civil suits for all the CHILDREN IN CHICAGO, LA, NY, PHILLY, FLORIDA, LOUISANA WHO WERE KILLED THE SAME DAY TRAYVON WAS KILLED.

People in this country are sheeple following anyone who encourages them to riot, rob and steal in the name of justice.

Zimmerman was arrested and then 44 days later charged because a mob ruled. So they got their trial. The prosecuter AND the defense chose the jury. The jury listened attentively, took notes, asked questions and watched all videos etc. with interest. No one was asleep.

THEY SAID "NOT GUILTY". GET OVER IT AMERICA. MOVE ON. The freaking jury has spoken. AND the prosecutor got to be part of the selection so he didn't try to cheat and pick people who were stupid.

Or did he? Well, he brought Zimmerman up on murder charges so he must have been drunk, stupid or in a coma. Everyone knows the case didn't hold up to murder. And the judge is an idiot.
