Disagree. Say what you will about 'turk on other threads, but on this one, his comments (especially early in the thread about legal matters) were very apt, helpful, and helped put a needed perspective on an obviously emotional case.

The map I posted shows the layout of the apartment complex (or "gated community", depending on your narrative). The complex is shaped into roughly hundred yard blocks. Arthur's saying that in that the entire complex block, heavily landscaped, at night, there was no place to hide. It's ludicrous prima facie
.....and this is what I'm talking about. I don't believe Trayvon Martin was hiding in the bushes or anything like that. I believe Zimmerman should go to jail. But Arthur's ridiculous statements have me arguing with him about that. It's stupid.

If Zimmerman was black and he'd killed Martin in a drug deal gone bad, and he was prosecuted like this, he'd be a cause celebre by now.
+2. When all else fails, call the guy a child molester. It's sort of the Godwin of the MSM world (though, no doubt, after the child molestation thing goes away he'll no doubt be called a Nazi, as they'll probably find some picture of him next to a Buddhist temple with a swastika in the background from when he was eleven.)
Luckily, being in Japan I don't have to see the play-by-play of this, but as we said dozens of pages ago... it's been a total slimefest from the start. A good discourse analyst could make a career off this one, if most of them weren't sadly already so ideologically biased as to buy the MSM version of this whole hog.
