I have so many mixed feelings over that trial.Q.U. wrote:What's that? People are rioting over the Zimmerman trial?
Rather, I am pointing out an abnormally 'small' jury of 'only' 6 people of the exact same demographic. The jury was not mixed so all discussion might as well have been someone talking and their voice echoing across the room until they're done. I am not pointing out that they are being women, by the way. Well, I did, but I wanted to point out more the fact that they were ALL white. AND in Florida. 6 white jurors in Florida. Victim is Black? Not Guilty.EagleMan wrote:You're basically judging them for being white women with that statement.

People with gun licenses are expected (Required) to know how to use a gun in a defensive way to save your life without taking someone else. Shooting people in the leg, arm, foot, hand, shoulder- ANYTHING. But he aimed for the heart. He tracked him down, followed him, provoked him and then shot him dead in his own neighborhood. This is not okay no matter how the fuck you cut it. No exception.
Law and punishment? MY argument is stupid? MINE?!Q.U. wrote:Also, your argument "murder is murder" is stupid when you apply it to law and punishment.

He was walking home. With Skittles. Got followed by an aggressive racist with a gun and got shot to death in cold blood, not
self defense.[Citation needed]

Birdofterror wrote:Okay Eagle, tell me how killing a Teenager is acceptable in any format since you seem to think it is. Enlighten me. Keep in mind self defense in this point is bullshit because he's half your size and YOU have the gun. In fact, if anyone gets to draw the "Self Defense" card, it's Martin... he's the one who's dead.
