Why hasn't the president weighed in yet and announced, "if I was on the jury I would vote guilty!" ?

During the 1992 Los Angeles riots, 2,383 people were injured, 8,000 were arrested, 51 were killed and over 700 businesses burned. Property damage was estimated at over 1 billion dollars. Of the 51 killed,[6] at least ten of them were shot by police or National Guard forces.

This is pretty tough to compete with. I don't think any civil unrest will reach these proportions. That may have been the last great US riot we'll have in our lifetimes. Sad, really. It's like seeing Haley's Comet and knowing that you won't be alive to see it ever again.

In some places on the Netwebs they have "in support of" threads for the prosecutors as if they are folk heroes.

"
If Zimmerman is acquitted, people will be upset, but they will find other avenues to show their dissatisfaction. The black community has become more sophisticated in protesting injustice, and there is talk already of using economic boycotts and other means that are more effective than upheavals that would only result in heavier police repression

In all honesty I do not expect there to be riots. But now it's racist to prepare for the possibility of a riot? Check Twitter or any other social media. It's filled with people calling for riots. Maybe those are all just people hiding behind their computer screens but it's not unreasonable to prepare a little bit. Imagine the outrage if a riot does occur, and Orlando or Sanford are burned to the ground by rioters. Would not the citizens of those cities be a little pissed that the authorities completely ignored the tens or hundreds of thousands of posted threats to riot?

I'm not calling for a militarization of Florida, but having a few extra police officers on duty and aware of what's happening is not overreacting, and it's certainly not racist.
Oh, without a doubt. They should want a quick acquittal.

Although in my experience a quick verdict is more often than not for the prosecution.

Who would the economic boycott be against?

And what "other means" do they mean.

Stuff like what HB quoted is a lot more racist than Zimmerman. Think about it. Z was 1/2 Hispanic or pardon me, White Hispanic or Orca. And he mentored a young black man and had black friends.The PC race baiting crowd loves scapegoats and Georgie Boy is perfect.

So CNN put Zimmerman's social security number up on display -

Piers Morgan is best described as the poster child for hyperbolic emotional bullshit. Truth walks across the street to avoid this idiot.

That's just unreal Harvey. Perhaps all the employees of CNN need to have all their info posted up on the web.

Jury has a question.

They want an inventory list of exhibits.

EDIT - I expect we're in for a long deliberation then.

Not in my book Munch. I don't care if you're green with pink stripes. My initial skepticism would have been the same. After reviewing the evidence presented in court I'll say with 100 percent certainty that Zimmerman is not guilty of any crime. I still think he's an idiot but I would say that about anyone in the same circumstances.
post #3824 of 6250
Well for starters, if they looked like they did in the first pic, it would be because this happened like 6 years ago.

And secondly, I feel pretty strongly that if it were the same situation with the races reversed, black Zimmerman (Blimmerman?) wouldn't have been charged.

Agreed.

There is going to be some real deliberating.

Hopefully there will be no cat fights though that may be what it takes to reach a unanimous verdict.

Surprisingly, I could not find a Vegas line on the outcome and my local bookie is not taking any action.

I wonder how much Money Merryweather would bet?
