I have over four decades to the contrary experience starting with most of my family. Want to get a Canadian wound up? Tell them you have better healthcare than they do.

Anyway, my original observation was not designed to turn this into a thread on Canadians but they are embarrassing themselves on that "I Am Not Trayvon" tumblr.

That juror should have kept quiet. Her name, photo, employer and home address will be on the internet by the weekend.

+1 That is something you slap your kids for doing (and I don't think I have hit my kids yet).

If I were on that jury I would see no other choice but to find
Zimmerman not guilty.
However I do not think he is innocent in any other sense.
Since I am not a lawyer it is my right to not conflate those two judgements.

Holder blasts 'stand your ground' after Zimmerman verdict

Those laws "try to fix something that was never broken" and "senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods," he said.

"By allowing -- and perhaps encouraging -- violent situations to escalate in public, such laws undermine public safety," Holder said in his first public comment on legislation that more than 30 states have passed in some form.

"We must stand our ground to ensure that our laws reduce violence and take a hard look at laws that contribute to more violence than they prevent," he added.

So apparently the country's top lawyer thinks this was a SYG case?

At first I thought he was a murdering racist pos . After following the trial I came to realize that he is probably just a misguided dogooder who made the huge mistake of underestimating the consequences of carrying a lethal weapon. Just look at pictures of the guy during the trial .He is the poster child for " god I am fucked" . I wouldn't worry about him getting away anything . His punishment started the second that gun went off and it willcontinue for quite sometime imo

Jesus. I guess we might as well be grateful to them for providing the single item that virtually all of us in this thread can agree on.

Message from the MSM and race-hate industry:

"The life of a black teenager shot by a white hispanic is worth infinitely more than the life of a black teenager shot by another black."

But here's the thing: to say that Zimmerman should have known this would be the result is to say that he should have expected Trayvon to be violent. And if there is a violent person walking around the neighborhood, then he is entirely reasonable to want to keep tabs on him. And if he's harmless, then he might have no reason to follow him but he can't be reasonably expected to see this outcome.

Think of it this way: if he hadn't pulled his piece and he died or suffered brain damage, would you be holding him accountable?
You're getting carried away and starting to make BS circular arguments.

What do the quotation marks signify here?

“There has always been a legal defense for using deadly force if — and the ‘if’ is important — no safe retreat is available,” Holder said. “But we must examine laws that take this further by eliminating the common-sense and age-old requirement that people who feel threatened have a duty to retreat, outside their home, if they can do so safely.”

Right, because only the cops should have the right to start shooting innocent people in public.

On Monday afternoon, the US Department of Justice appealed to civil rights groups and the general public across the country for “tips” on George Zimmerman in their pursuit of potential federal civil rights charges against the just-acquitted defendant in the Trayvon Martin killing. The DOJ actually went so far as to set up an e-mail address to allow such tips: Sanford.florida@usdoj.gov. The email address is slated to go operational by the end of the week.

Serious replies only please.
