killing Trayvon - Page 147

post #2191 of 6250
Zimmerman's old myspace page has surfaced and his attorney has comfirmed it is authentic. A few tidbits:

Quote:
“I don’t miss driving around scared to hit mexicans walkin on the side of the street, soft (expletive) wanna be thugs messin with peoples cars when they aint around (what are you provin, that you can dent a car when no ones watchin) don’t make you a man in my book,” Zimmerman writes on the page.

“Workin 96 hours to get a decent pay check, gettin knifes pulled on you by every mexican you run into!” he adds, providing no details about these alleged incidents. The existence of the MySpace page was first reported by The Miami Herald.
Quote:
A statement posted on a Zimmerman defense site run by O’Mara concedes that the comments “will cast Mr. Zimmerman in a less-than-favorable light” and that they could become evidence in the case. The statement says there will be no comment on the MySpace statements for that reason, but it does confirm that the posts were by Zimmerman.
Quote:
Two August 2005 blog posts on the site make reference to Zimmerman’s legal problems. In one, Zimmerman exults about how two felony charges stemming from a physical altercation outside a bar with a law enforcement officer were dropped to a misdemeanor.

“The man knows he was wrong,” reads part of the post. Ultimately, the misdemeanor charge was also dropped when Zimmerman completed a pretrial diversion program that included an anger management course.


Another interesting piece of info:
Quote:
O’Mara also said on the website that an accountant and former Internal Revenue Service agent has been chosen to oversee Zimmerman’s legal defense fund, which has collected more than $200,000 so far. The fund will be used to pay legal fees and for Zimmerman’s living expenses.

time for an iroh analuisys.

one: ZimmerMan is hispanic
too: mexicans are hispanic

being "racists" to your own kind of people is perfectly acceptable. for example, my friends call me racist things all the time and i do the same to them. and i dont mind cause we are the same skin color and hte same people the same race etc. i ask you how many of you have done the same thing to your friends, exactly, all of you have at one point of another. and it won't hurt zimermans chances of walking free after court. for example, black people call each other the n word all the time, no harm done. hell i used to have non black friends eaach of DIFFERENT races call each other the n word once they are good firends with each other, it is like a brotherhood kinda thing, like "hey N, i am starving lets go grab a bite to eat" that kinda thing). (keep in mind this was when i was in highschool, i am not friends with those people anymore, i was just using them as an exampo).

as for the monay 200k, dat is small timer change, he [rolly has more, i wouldn't be surprized that people are cutting check to big Z in private, mailing ot his fam, cause we all know zim is innoicent and will walk freedom.

inconculision, the person who wrtoe the washingpotst article needs to get with the times.

MSNBC reports Zimmerman's myspace page contains "slurs" against Mexicans.

I don't see how it could be his page, though, the profile says the owner is "hispanic/latino."

A pair of Myspace posts from 2005 could become evidence? Seriously?

I've seen enough "Law & Order" episodes to know that it can be used to prove the prosecution/defense's character portrayal.

is there a statute of limitations for these kind of issues?

Everything I know about the law I learned from Law & Order. The original only.

Zimmerman's myspace postings are based on his experiences. Experiences that will be shared by many people.

They're trying to paint it as showing a history of racial profiling. Who on earth doesn't allow racial profiling to influence aspects of their lives and the choices they make?

Show me someone who doesn't and you show me a person who is either a naive fool or a liar. There's no third option.

The world works the way that I believe it does, there is no second option!

I'm too apathetic (maybe even pathetic) to open a new thread on this subject, or to more than desultorily check whether this was already posted in this thread:

I was thinking about making this headline appropriately incendiary but lost interest.

This self defense law is like a Pandora box ...

It will lead to so many situations where people will feel confident to shoot someone under the Stand your ground's umbrella...

It is sad to see two young men dying for such trivial reasons...

The issue is not only the racial profile of the victims and offenders but an ill thought populist law...

I have been attacked for making this particular point before...

What will happen when the offender will claim self-defense?

How the law , the media and society will deal with the challenges attached to this law?
