Racism is always irrational..

Between a black and a white Mexican , the latter is the least of two evils..

I would say that the % of black people interested in the Trayvon case is greater than the % of white people that are interested in the case.

And anecdotally, I can say that Hispanic people are the least interested.

Saying that based on what?

Saying it based on personal opinion and observations.

I'm just one person in Houston, Tx though.

And I would put my money on a bet that the above is true.

Anyone know of any real studies pertaining to the above? As to whether the black, white, or hispanic population segments have more interest in the case.

And how would you measure something like this?

Wadya think Javyn? With your wide circle of friends (including the Paki ), and your white-Jewish-indian-mixed background you should have an opinion. What is it?
post #2571 of 6250
I don't know because I'm not all that interested myself. I'll have to conference with the Paki.

I do wish the white people I know would shut up about it already tho, seems the ones I know live and breathe this shit. But I'm just one guy in Houston, Texas.

You sound like a typical white man:

In that I think Zimmerman's likely guilty of voluntary manslaughter but don't care enough to follow the case anymore? Okay. If that's how most of us think, I'm quite happy w/ that.

Did you read the Gallup link.

I still think if the case does get to a jury decision there is a very good chance of a hung jury.

So what's your theory of the case, Javyn--why do you think Zimmmerman is guilty of manslaughter, of all things?
post #2576 of 6250
I think he will most likely be found not guilty of anything in court unless there is some new evidence out there.
In my court though, I think he is at least guilty of instigating the death through poor judgement.
IMO, the instant he decided to pursue Martin he should have taken honest stock of his options and abilities.
What if the guy resists or becomes physical (which happened). His tools cant simply be to shoot to kill if things aren't going his way.
He should have taken honest stock before leaving his car, and said to himself "I dont have the proper tools and abilities to effectively do this task".
I think that lack of judgement lead to a death.

Most attorneys would intuitively know that Javyn's Paki friend told him so.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

This would probably be the best argument for manslaughter
Quote:
782.11 Unnecessary killing to prevent unlawful act.—Whoever shall unnecessarily kill another, either while resisting an attempt by such other person to commit any felony, or to do any other unlawful act, or after such attempt shall have failed, shall be deemed guilty of manslaughter, a felony of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084.

Without witnesses, though, I don't see any way to prove what was and wasn't necessary in the situation.

Interesting. The Florida legislature thinks of everything, don't they?
post #2580 of 6250
That and IMO you can't prove he intended to kill Trayvon.
