    That idea had not occured to me and it indeed a very good one indeed.

    Excellent!

    If Zimmerman is aquitted, is there anywhere in the US that he'd be safe? Maybe Alaska or Idaho? Even then, the media will follow him and broadcast his whereabouts to the whole world.

    If he's convicted, the Florida DOC will probably have to put him in either protective custody or put him in a federal prison.
    When since the comments about Charles Manson...has any POTUS had the temerity to use his bully pulpit to set the population against a defendant in any trial? those comments were on point. Obama's werent even forthright.

    When Mr Zimmerman is found Not Guilty, and IF he SUES Zuckerburg...he could OWN FACEBOOK!

    Nixon declared Manson guilty. Obama said if he had a son, he would look like Trayvon. Even if what happened to Trayvon was done in self-defense, it is still a tragedy that a kid is dead.

    Not if that kid was a thug (which he was) so maybe GZ did the world a favor and obama shouldn't have opened his sewer hole about the affair.

    What's a tragedy is that the kid was in trouble, going down hill fast--theft, pot dealing, drug use --and that the school couldn't arrest him, alerting the parents to how damned serious this was.

    What's a tragedy is that Tracy Martin felt it was more important to take his girlfriend to dinner than to supervise his son, who had just had a 10-day suspension for drug possession.

    What's a tragedy is that Tracy was so busy with his girlfriend that he didn't realize that his son was missing until the next morning, assuming that the son had either been arrested or was with his cousin.

    What's a tragedy is that Trayvon didn't go straight home after the encounter with Zimmerman after easily outrunning him and disappearing from sight.

    What's a tragedy is that Trayvon felt it necessary to get on top of Zimmerman and injure his head with many punches.

    The death of this 17-year old, 6-foot male was a result of many tragedies. The death itself, however, seems to have been caused by the young man himself, having gotten out of control and not having been properly supervised.

    The only Martin I actually feel sorry for is Trayvon's mother. She saw her son was in trouble and, unable to supervise him for 2 weeks (since she had to go to work), she sent him to his father for supervision and a little discipline. Daddy dropped the ball, putting his own enjoyment ahead of his son's needs. Ultimately, the death of Trayvon lies at the doorstep of Tracy Martin.

    well it appears that the Jurys going to be allowed to hear about Saint Skittle's marijuana use.

    "Zimmermanís lawyers will apparently introduce findings from the toxicology report through the testimony of a defense forensics expert."

    I have to wonder what other evidence may be introduced. now that the Judge has reveresed herself on the toxicology repot? The posession of burglary tools at an earlier date would for example be an "Interesting" additional chunk of info.

    On Zimmermanís call to a non-emergency police line, he told a dispatcher that a person he was observing (who turned out to be Martin) appeared to be ďon drugs.Ē
    Zimmermanís lawyers have previously argued that they should be allowed to introduce evidence of Martinís drug use, pointing to text messages appearing to refer to his use of marijuana. Additionally, the attorneys also unsuccessfully argued for the admittance of a pair of photos of pot plants that were found on Martinís cell phone. Other recovered images showed a handgun and Martin blowing smoke from his mouth.

    He'd never end up owning Facebook, but he'd certainly get some money from Zuckerburg, not to mention NBC. They're the ones who altered the audio tapes to libel and defame him. Between those two, he's got some serious damages coming.

    The tragedy is that this kid was brought up with a contempt for all of the things that might have kept him alive. He was taught to hate "crackas," to get high instead of working, to be violent instead of rational... Liberals taught him that he had a right to have a chip on his shoulder. He was a pawn, useless to anyone except in death, when he became an excuse to disarm people that they hold in contempt. Zimmerman pulled the trigger, but the left lined up the shot and got him to put himself in the gun sight.

    This means that they will also include his toxicity screen, which will show THC in his system at the time of the attack. That corroborates Zimmerman's comment to the 911 operator that he looked like he was on drugs and provides him with a reason to have called it in. That will pretty much crush the prosecution's case.

    Difference: Manson WAS guilty. Manson was a dirtbag long before the Tate/LaBianca murders. Manson and his minions had a laundry list of illegal activity. Kasabian, Krenwinkle, Watson were all admitted Manson Family members and Atkins all but admitted her involvement and who she did it for and why. The Manson case was as slam dunk as any case can get. Oh, and Nixon never tried to compare Patricia to Sharon Tate or Pat to Rosemary LaBianca.

    The first amendment is about the right to not go to jail for having an opinion. It was not about the right to suggest people be murdered. More importantly, it's not about the right to say whatever you want on a privately owned website such as this one or facebook.

    So you're saying that if I publicly announced that it is my opinion that the president should be killed I'm not going to go to jail? Tell you what, you do that and let me know what happens.
