    Re: Is the age of a dead burglar,assailant,armed robber, attempted rapist/murder rela Martin's decisions matter less, because he didn't place himself in the circumstance. Zimmerman did. I'm not saying Martin didn't have a part. He did. But he didn't instigate the events. Zimmerman did. I'm...

    Is the age of a dead burglar,assailant,armed robber, attempted rapist/murder relavent

    Re: Is the age of a dead burglar,assailant,armed robber, attempted rapist/murder rela I personally refer to anyone under 30 as a kid at this point. When a teen dies in an accident people say, "He was just a kid." It's actually quite common. And I don't ****ing care if it was Snoop Dogg (or...

    Zimmerman not guilty.

    Zimmerman is STILL at fault. Because he instigated a pursuit that Martin perceived as a threat. That's the whole point. Zimmerman doesn't stalk Martin, Martin doesn't feel threatened. Nothing happens. Life goes on for all of them. Zimmerman's bad judgment led to the loss of someone's life...

    Re: Is the age of a dead burglar,assailant,armed robber, attempted rapist/murder rela Except one person made the bad decision FIRST that led to all of it. And he faces no responsibility for it. Zimmerman reacted to an assumption that a kid in a hoodie was "suspicious." Martin reacted to a guy...

    Re: Is the age of a dead burglar,assailant,armed robber, attempted rapist/murder rela One thing you all overlook is that Martin was a minor. There are restrictions about what CAN be released about a minor without the family's consent. Of course, the family has an interest in painting their son...

    ALEC's Stand Yur ground law lets whites kill blacks and walk [W:823]

    http://econweb.tamu.edu/mhoekstra/castle_doctrine.pdf It's a .pdf of a study from Texas A&M that suggest that homicide rates have increased by 8% in states with SYG laws. I would argue that without the SYG laws, Zimmerman calls the cops and stays in his car or lets them handle it. The very...

    Re: Is the age of a dead burglar,assailant,armed robber, attempted rapist/murder rela But, of course, the backlash is to paint him out to be a wanton baby-killing thug who, if Zimmerman hadn't stalked him down and killt him, he was going to destroy vast swaths of humanity all on his own. It...

    Glee's Cory Monteith dies of overdose

    I don't think you saw my prior post either. I'm aware of all those things. I just don't think criminality keeps an addict from becoming an addict, but I believe it can keep them from seeking help when the time comes.

    army vet denied right to own gun due to ...

    I see this as no different than denying felons the right to vote. Once your sentence is done (and in the case of gun laws - as long as the crime was not committed with a gun), you should be a citizen again with full rights.

    Glee's Cory Monteith dies of overdose

    BUT - an Oxy addict can seek help without fear of arrest (unless, of course, they've stolen the drug); while a heroin addict must fear criminal charges - despite the fact that the body sees no difference in the two. If you have a doctor that you can convince easily enough, you can get your fix...
