If we could only find another planet to put Moonfront Republicans on! And it wouldn't even have to be very comfortable.

Yay, some more lying.
Your little racist brain can never comprehend that there is indeed injustice happening to others too, right?
6/19/2012 6:37:05 AM
This is, of course, not speculation and actually based on some sort of actual knowledge that liberalh8ter is privvy to.

And becaus, even if he WAS a "thug", which doesn't appear to be so, murdering the boy was still wrong and murder.
6/19/2012 6:38:00 AM
Why does anyone even need a "stand your ground" law? Everyone already has the right to self-defense up to the same level of force as an attacker is using. You shouldn't have the right to bully people around by deadly force.

Trayvon was hardly a "welfare baby". He was a middle class teenager. Even if he were a welfare dependent, it didn't justify killing him.
6/19/2012 6:47:07 AM
A kid was murdered because of the colour of his skin.
Lying about his family doesnt change that fact.

Don't you love it when they make stuff up?

Any white person that fights back when a person of "color" is beating them to death is a RACIST !

Meanwhile, conservative hero/murderer Zimmerman has a whole new bag of shit to lie his way out of.

@FatBlackMammy - Uncreative user name aside, I find it funny that white conservatives believe they have a God-given right to stalk and chase "people of color" around at night, run after them on foot if they try to get away from the weirdo stalker, and then kill said "person of color" if they dare to defend themselves from a white (or at least non-black) stranger who is engaging in openly aggressive and threatening behavior against them.
About like that idiot in Houston who shot his neighbors for refusing to turn down their music (on their own property) and calling it "self-defense".
BTW, Zimmerman's injuries seem rather mild for being "beaten to death". Not to mention witnesses seem to be backtracking on the whole "beating" thing....Also not mentioning that Zimmerman got into an altercation he started by relentlessly chasing an underage boy at night time.
6/19/2012 8:55:15 PM
I've heard it said, and said it myself. This whole fucking mess could have been avoided, if Zimmerman had listened to the 911 dispatcher and stayed in his fucking car. HE made the choice to confront Martin. hE made the choice to take neighborhood watch too seriously. HE made the choice to play Vigilante Man.HE made the choice to be the aggressor. So, he doesn't get to call 'self-defense' after accosting a kid that was minding his own business. His own actions started this mess, and the full weight of the consequences falls on his shoulders and his alone.
6/20/2012 6:07:53 AM
I agree, Power Skunk. I've said that from the very first time I heard about this case. I do believe that if Zimmerman's life were in danger from being beaten up and having his head rammed into concrete, then he would have a right to use deadly force. Unfortunately, we'll probably never, ever know exactly what happened right before the moment of the shooting. But the fact remains that he got himself into a situation that could have been totally avoided if he'd just listened to the dispatcher instead of playing vigilante.
6/20/2012 7:21:47 AM
You have got to be joking. Someone actually shot his neighbors because their MUSIC was too loud?! And then had the gall to claim self- defense? That's it; I no longer believe that any moderation is in order. America must join the rest of the world right now. It ought to be a crime to own a gun, all currently owned guns should be confiscated, and restrictions must be harsher than they are in the strictest European nation. Americans can have their guns back only when they can be adults, which is never. (cf. every moral panic and manufactured controversy ever.) The ENTIRE WORLD thinks we are violent because of our gun culture, so we must renounce firearms in entirety before we can get our respect back. That dude's neighbors (or Trayvon Martin, come to think of it) would not have been shot in any other Western (or non-Western for that matter) country. I have had it up to here with conservative obfuscation: the US has had more firearm-induced deaths, including school shootings, than every other country combined. Guns have no purpose except to kill other human beings, so nobody should be permitted to own them. Maybe Americans will not be stereotyped as rednecks if owning such a barbarous device carried decades of jail time...

It's a horrible law. Poorly thought out, and it should have been obvious that there would be an increase in "justifiable" homicides. It surprises me how many people think it's a good idea.
6/20/2012 10:43:18 AM
Nothing racist here. Martin was a thug and the law likely saved Zimmerman's life.
6/20/2012 11:08:48 AM

Have you read at least a summary of the law? It does not allow you to just shoot people.

"Nothing racist here. Martin was a thug and the law likely saved Zimmerman's life."
Yeah, totally not racist. Especially not the "welfare babies" part. That was the least racist part. And I agree that Martin was a thug. It's just like a thug to smoke weed and wear a hoodie. And buy Skittles. Those thugs love Skittles. Thugs also like being stalked and harassed by armed, self-appointed Neighborhood Watch captains. You know, like a thug...

Before you get all bent out of shape, check the facts of that case ...
Vox, as usual, is out and out lying about people being shot because their music was too loud then claiming self defense.

You know, I had to develop some callouses on my sense of humor to deal with the FSTDT sites, and it does get hard to take some of these morons and make an ass of them with my sarcastic words when they've already done such a good job with their real ones.
That being said, this person is providing clear anectodal evidence, citeable in any court in the land, that the person to be blamed for every shooting is the person who got shot. If JFK didn't want to be shot, he shouldn't have been a president. If black people don't want to be shot, they shouldn't ever stand near a white person with a gun, and, by god, if liberalh8ter's father didn't want to be shot, then he shouldn't have been fucking h8ter's sister when it was h8ter's night on the schedule!
