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.

That case happened already, down to the kid using racial epithets. Except the black guy shot the white kid in the face in front of a bunch of witnesses who all said there was no immediate provocation.

He became a cause celebre of the left, was charged only with manslaughter, was convicted, sentenced to three years, and had his sentence commuted by the governor.

At first glance I thought you were talking about the black teen that shot the white baby in its face while it was being pushed in its stroller by the mother. I'm surprised MSNBC didn't use a projection of what the white baby would look like at 30 years of age when they characterized the victim (assuming they even mentioned it at all).

Haha. Some Canadian cracker must have written that sign out, they don't put lines through their sevens in the hood.

I had never heard of the publication you linked. The Chicago News Report

But here is some interesting stuff from them about T's FB page

Can you imagine if there was racist shit like this about Z. Do you think it would have been played up?

Yep kid it sure could have been you. Like I said before this isn't some game. This is what happens if you do stupid shit.

CNN Twitter poll.

Does a jury asking to see the evidence again give us any clues as to what they'll decide? It seems to me that this is a bad sign for GZ.

Hey Harvey. How long do you think it's going to take for the mob mentality to kick in and these people start rioting? I think the crap is going to start before there's a verdict. Actually it wouldn't surprise me if things start to get sporadically ugly beginning tonight.

Alternate Universe stuff.

Or I guess "many" of those voters are not familiar with the actual case and the evidence. AAMOF, I would venture that the great majority don't know the first F*cking thing about the law or the case. But they damn sure know that Z is guilty.

There's really no way to tell. If they were asking for a specific piece of evidence we might have an idea, but they just asked for a list. Probably just an organizing thing.

Could be. There's a big group of protesters outside the courthouse.

The ignorance of the people on twitter is astounding.

I had never heard of them either, it was the first link that featured the story when I googled it. It received moderate play when it occurred, but nothing like I would have expected - even from conservative networks.

This is very similar to how Barack Obama was the best president who had ever lived the day he took the oath of office (the first time).

Not really, unless you just mean that there are a bunch of ignorant people spouting strong opinions without any reasonable basis for doing so. In which case it's very similar to 98.3% of all media events that capture folks' attention . . .
