    Awww Poor Rachel Maddow……she’s being sued for $50 million dollars….

    A story from one year ago. Good job Magnum P.I.

  • Hillbilly

    A new photograph obtained exclusively by ABC News showing the bloodied back of George Zimmerman’s head, which was taken three minutes after he shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, gives possible credence to his claim that Martin had bashed his head against the concrete as he fought for his life.

    Video here.

    The photographer told ABC News exclusively that they did not see the scuffle that night, but did hear it. The source saw Martin’s prostrate body on the wet grass and claims the gunpowder burns on Martin’s gray hoodie were clearly visible; the gunpowder marks could show that Martin was shot at very close range.

  • Hillbilly

    Watch Zimmerman apologize here.

    I’m not a part of that culture. While I enjoy smoking with friends, I experience my most profound introspection under cannabis when I’m alone and in silent darkness. It isn’t a recreational drug when used in that manner.

    I don’t understand. Is anyone doubting that Trayvon was beating him up? If I attacked Jon Jones in a Walmart parking lot, I am certain that MY injuries will include a broken arm, missing teeth, permanent vision loss due to eye trauma, and unconsciousness. None of those injuries changes the fact that I was the illegal aggressor, which is what this entire case is about. The bloody head only indicates who was getting beat up.

    Gabriel – I don’t understand. Is anyone doubting that Trayvon was beating him up? If I attacked Jon Jones in a Walmart parking lot, I am certain that MY injuries will include a broken arm, missing teeth, permanent vision loss due to eye trauma, and unconsciousness. None of those injuries changes the fact that I was the illegal aggressor, which is what this entire case is about. The bloody head only indicates who was getting beat up.

    ——————————————

    Well we don’t know the facts yet. Just because I follow you doesn’t make me the aggressor, nor give you the right to attack me. Like i said earlier – If following somebody is reason to attack them, there would be allot of guys in Florida with broken bodies during spring break.

    We don’t know if Zimmerman was on his way back to his car when the confrontation took place. If he was then that makes Trayvon the follower. If Zimmerman was at his car, then confronted by Trayvon, then Trayvon went out of his way to confront Zimmerman. What we do know is that we will never get Trayvon’s side of the story. That makes IMO a conviction very difficult.

    We can type what “if’s” all day long. Until ALL the evidence is heard nobody can say for sure what did or didn’t happen. All the folks wanting Zimmerman held accountable for his actions (following somebody as far as what’s been reported) don’t understand that’s not a reason to attack somebody. He (Trayvon) supposedly had a phone, call 911 telling them your being followed. Supposedly Zimmerman lost sight of Trayvon. If thats true then Trayvon was no longer in what I’m guessing he perceived as danger. If Trayvon then inserts himself back into Zimmerman’s immediate location, how is that Zimmerman’s fault?

    That happening in MA may have to do with Pres. Obama being a Chicago White Sox fan growing up and one who was unable to name a favourite ChiSox player of the time when asked. Heck, I can’t name one memorable ChiSox players from the top of my head either, but then again I’m a Red Sox fan with plenty to choose from. :grin:

  • AppleStinx

    Pres. Obama not being able to come up with a favourite player reminded me of Sarah Palin drawing a blank at naming a newspaper.

  • Ratboy

    @ AppleStinx

    Come on man! i am not a fan but …..Nellie Fox, Carlton Fisk, Frank Thomas just to name a few! Now they dont stand up to some of the Cub’s greats (I am a fan) Billy Williams, Ernie Banks, Ron Santo, Fergie Jenkins, Bruce Sutter, and lets not for get the one they let get away, Lou brock
