How would you spin that story? Why even mention his status as a former Marine, if not trying to tell a story of police run amok? Perhaps the story should have just said police answered a call in which a disturbed man was threatening all who came near him with a knife. So they killed him while doing their job of keeping the peace.

As usual, the Onion clears away the brush and gets to the gist of the story

Instead of giving away that $5, spend it on beer. Then we could ask, would you piss on Al Sharpton if he were on fire?

PS: Sad that this thread started about a teenager who was killed. But the distractions were predictable.

It appears no one is going to take my bait so I will continue to spend my income on beer. Good advice.

I might piss on Sharpton if he was on fire, but only if I really had to go. I'm not going to strain my prostrate trying to make myself piss if I don't really have to.

And we're at nearly 100 pages. This is a topic that had no business being national news in the first place so if this is how it ends then so be it.

Armed Neo-Nazis Now Patrolling Sanford, Say They Are "Prepared" For Post-Trayvon Martin Violence


Neo-Nazis are currently conducting heavily armed patrols in and around Sanford, Florida and are "prepared" for violence in the case of a race riot. The patrols are to protect "white citizens in the area who are concerned for their safety" in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting last month, says Commander Jeff Schoep of the National Socialist Movement. "We are not advocating any type of violence or attacks on anybody, but we are prepared for it," he says. "We are not the type of white people who are going to be walked all over."


CNN is now using a smiling photo of Z in a suit and tie. He is not SF-approved so I can no longer support anything related to him.

Also, I somehow doubt the Neo-Nazis will really be that big in number/impact

In that part of Florida, you might be surprised, especially if they team up with the Klan.

They're not going to come out in force, but they could get more than you might think.

Schoep was also quick to clarify that he isn't taking sides in Trayvon Martin's controversial shooting. "That's for the courts to decide," he says. Besides, Schoep says, Zimmerman's not even white.

/end scene.

If this story hadn't already jumped the shark...

It occurred to me just now that the DA has more reason NOT to have a trial than he does to have one. A not guilty verdict would be a short sharp shock that very well might lead to riots. Whereas this drawn out drama with no definite end kind of defuses that. Eventually we will move onto a new outrage and Zimmerman will become a Trivial Pursuit answer.

Nazi's defending Jewish Mexicans? I don't even recognize my country anymore

I like how Z's attorneys claim the public is making decisions without facts or with the wrong facts but that they (Z's attorneys) have the only true facts (even though they sound like they are relying purely on Z's personal statements) but have not yet met with Z!

You're right, they should just sit silently until trial and let Al Sharpton and his cronies taint the jury pool without any possibility of rebuttal. Great idea.

You can tell they are mediocre lawyers by the way they are zealously advocating for their client.
