Change the laws on CCW that are allowing murder to happen legally.

It is a common mistake. Kangaroos have pockets. Horses do not.

"IT" is a proud member of the "Asses and Horses Organization of Lost Equine Steeds. Better known by its acronym, AHOLES. You will be getting an official correction letter from that organization.

C'mon man, everybody knows that "IT" luvs to keep that mess in its saddlebags as it roams the plains and prairies of foolishness.

It does matter, government had no authority to order zimmerman to do anything, government had every interest to sever liablity from zimmerman's actions. Had the government ordered Zimmerman to sit in his vehicle and not do anything, and Zimmerman had become a murder victim as a result of those police orders, the police would have been found liable for Zimmerman's death. The only time that police can order people to do anything is when they are directing traffic, in times of emergency or when they made an arrest.

Zimmerman is indicted for murder and most likely will be found guilty, regardless. I'm just telling you, there was no cease and disist order from the government in that statement made to Zimmerman.

"IT" explained to us the reason why it only agrees (most of the time anyway).

Topix moderators warned it about its racist language. It chose to ignore them and continue. "IT" basically called their bluff.

So, they duly axed it. Topix moderators deleted ALL of its posts. "IT" was then known as "lxl rebel girl." After they kicked it out, "IT" reappeared as "ruby starr."

That's when "IT" explained it all to me. "IT" was trying to turn a new leaf by just agreeing and keeping its gnarly hay-filled mouth shut on vile content. You know, let the others say it and just nod in agreement.

So, after everyone recognized it, "IT" changed its name to "ruby starr is rebel girl."

Wanting to get in on the action, "IT" tired easily of just being a sideline patron. Another quick change of bridle and saddle, and "IT" is back in the game in its starring role uttering racist, vile, incoherent sh!t. The name has come full circle. "IT" calls itself "rebel girl" now.

Oh yeah, there's a dirty, mangy and crude dog that "IT" keeps around. Together, they make quite the couple.

Not like Sonny & Cher. More like Beavis and Butthead.

Your post is a very poor reflection on what your kind perceive about our society. You basically said that it was Trayvon's parent's fault that Trayvon was permitted to buy candy from the store. Who is safe out in society under your skewed perception of fault? You're flippin nuts.
And you're flippin ignorant. I said he should have been grounded and being punished for being suspended and so he wouldn't have been allowed to walk to the store to buy candy. You are obviously too stupid to understand the part about being punished for his previous actions. You kind of skipped the personal responsibility thingy didn't you? It's Trayvon's fault he got shot, it's his parent's fault they are trying to blame everyone else for their son's actions and when it's apparent they weren't too concerned that he turn out to be a repected member of society before the shooting or he would have been too busy being punished for what he had done before to be out running around that night. So before the parent's go around trying to blame others they need to check themselves first. What did they do to make sure things turned out differently? NOTHING, but they sure as hell are on hand to trademark shit and make a profit off their failure now aren't they?

Yes it is true. Its similar to your libs screaming about Halliburton and Cheyney, yet are so silent when Obama continues to use Halliburton too.

In Rhode Island, African-Americans are 5.7 percent of the population, but are responsible for 67 percent of homicide, 24 percent of rape, 42 percent of robbery, 28 percent of aggravated assault, and 24 percent of burglary. Lots of good little Travons there

How do you know he wasn't punished?

And now you blame them for the King Captain killing (allegedly murdering, according to the state of Florida) their son.

No, only King Captain Zimmerman (the alleged Murderer who had an ex-hoe) is responsible for his own actions. He's a 28 year old adult who knows right from wrong.

Ohhhhh, if only Mr. T could talk to the King Captain. I can just hear Mr. T.....

I read where he expects his legal fees will be $1,000,000.
Interesting that he thought GZ was indigent when he took his case. I think he was impressed with how much money GZ collected in such a short time. I think that's where he got the idea, copying Captain Zimmerman.
I still want to know how he spent over 50K in just a few days and what he spent it on.
I read the same thing about the fees also. Guess now that there's money to be made, O'Mara will cut back on the public dissertations and mount a "real" defense.

As for the missing 50k, I'm sure a lot of the money went to his "security detail."

But he doesn't deserve to keep a dime of any residue regardless of the outcome of the case.

I don't give a rats ass about any of that. It does not change the fact that Zimmerman was following Martin. The only thing it shows is Zimmerman was acting completely on his own. But you still haven't told me where the truck was parked and where Zimmerman was when he stopped. Keep in mind he said "OK" 13 seconds after leaving his truck. Did he continue following Martin after he said OK? Where was he when he hung up with the cops?

The law that allows a citizen of this country to carry a weapon for self defense is what was given by our founding fathers.
You can't just take the ability to own and carry a gun away. It is not yours or any politicians right to do that.
Just think if Zimmerman had not had a gun Treyvon may very well be alive today. And......Zimmerman may have died from a beating by a 6 foot plus gangsta wanna be thug named treyvon.

lol! Let's blame his parents for having Zimmerman stalk Martin and shooting him at point blank range with Zimmerman's weapon too.

In fact, why don't you absolve Zimmerman of any responsibility for killing another human being.

There... so much for Zimmerman's personal responsibility.
