Nimrod: Sounds to me that your political correctness is in overdrive.

Ben do you see what is backing your opinion in this.

bud sexist? What does that have to do with the trail?

So far we have two saying it is a race issue and one saying it is a sexist issue.

Apparently dinkwad, you did not read the Heading "up for debate: Zimmerman's jury"
OR
The question: What do you think an all-female jury . . . . ?"

I was speaking to the question off an all female jury. What the heck are you smoking? You must not be as smart as YOU SAY YOU ARE if you had to ask such a dumb question? Your reading comprehension skills are floundering, you old fool.

Hey Yogi, having fun yet? Nemo can't read or comprehend. Must be the late effects from his early drug use.

Jughead, I am indeed a big fan of the truth- just not of those who claim to know it.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/21/13 at 9:33

Since your started the name calling bud, with dinkwad. It was a question, bud you jump in and start with sexist. Now go dink that you old COW!

By: bfra on 6/21/13 at 9:41

Nemo - From the other thread, make that the old COW that doesn't know anything about having a calf. :-)

By: Captain Nemo on 6/21/13 at 9:41

I read the question as “What do you think an all-female jury will mean for the trial of George Zimmerman?” Now I can see where an old cow would jump to that as being sexist. I on the other hand am bias to cows having opinions at all.

BTW bud, you are not in yogi's will.

They took the whitest song in the world and made it even whiter.... how is that possible?

You must dislike yourself then, fleadog.

The DA is going for a conviction only for political purposes. This country is sick, all thanks to liberals.

I look forward to it imploding and starting over with people who respect just, regardless of color. Let's keep the apes out, though---they soil any place where the dwell.

By: Jughead on 6/21/13 at 9:52

justice, that is..

By: BenDover on 6/21/13 at 9:52

I think the 'thug' part is pretty evident by virtue of the bruised knuckles, busted nose, black eyes, head lacerations suffered by Zimmerman, Nemo. That certainly didn't happen after Zimmerman shot him.

By: BenDover on 6/21/13 at 9:56

As for a fair trial, unlikely.

Out of 6 women at least 2 or 3 will see it as an opportunity to use a conviction in this matter condemn 'bad guns' by proxy. Just the same way the jury convicted Scooter Libby for the perceived wrong-doings of Bush and Cheney.

By: bfra on 6/21/13 at 9:56

Ben - That wasn't all shown or documented the night of the event, either.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/21/13 at 9:57

So Ben you think that thugs fight with bare fist and civilized men uses guns?

By: BenDover on 6/21/13 at 9:58

Yes it was bfra. They've got video of Zimmerman at the police station all beaten to hell.

By: bfra on 6/21/13 at 10:00

Ben - In your mind! You are so good at cut & paste (junk), let's see some pictures with dates.

By: HoundDog on 6/21/13 at 10:01

Mr. BenDover, nothing in your 10:52 post makes your version of events more plausible than the one in my 9:03 post. An open mind is a wonderful asset.

There goes Ben painting with that broad brush again....

"Just the same way the jury convicted Scooter Libby for the perceived wrong-doings of Bush and Cheney."

Libby was convicted by a jury of perjury and obstruction of justice. The FBI made their case, nothing perceived about that.....

By: Jughead on 6/21/13 at 10:06

Liberals never evaluate facts. That gets in the way of their opinions.

Trayvon was a dope-smoking, school-suspended, fighting, gangbanging hoodrat!

Why can't you libtards admit that?

By: Captain Nemo on 6/21/13 at 10:06

So Ben, by your 11:02 you are saying that Zimmerman knew of Martins pass and this is why he confronted him and then killed him?

By: bfra on 6/21/13 at 10:07

Ben - Pictures of Zimmerman with the shit beat out of him. Comprehension Ben comprehension!

By: Captain Nemo on 6/21/13 at 10:08

Ben are you describing Martin or the flea?

By: brrrrk on 6/21/13 at 10:09

The irony here is that guys like Ben, yogi, bud, jugs, and the rest of their ilk, would have shit their pants if they saw a guy like Zimmerman bearing down on them with a gun.

By: bfra on 6/21/13 at 10:11

brrrrk - Judging from comments on both threads, Ben decided early on today, open mouth, insert foot. But I think he got mixed up & inserted both feet.

By: HoundDog on 6/21/13 at 10:12

If doing stupid things as a teenager (like giving "the finger" and smoking pot) were capital offenses, most people would be awaiting execution.

Why can't you libtards admit that?"

As soon as you admit the "W" was a sadistic alcoholic coke-head who, as a kid, loved to blow up toads by shoving firecrackers up their asses and lighting them.... oh wait, that's OK because "W" was white... right? All is forgiven....

"It was said a number of times, 'What are we doing with this guy here? Where's [Karl] Rove ... where are these other guys?'

Richard Armitage is the guy who accidentally leaked the name of Plame (which actually was not a crime) after her husband Wilson injected himself into the political process of the 2004 election.

By: bfra on 6/21/13 at 10:22

Ben - Where are the bloody pictures of Zimmerman, with dates?

By: Captain Nemo on 6/21/13 at 10:26

Ben sees bruised knuckles and a bloody nose, then thinks thug.

Zimmerman see hooded and see a crime taking place.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/21/13 at 10:27

I think Ben has slip into his denial mode now. He is not answering any of us.

By: BenDover on 6/21/13 at 10:31

Sometimes troubled boys do stupid things like attack armed men too, brrrrk.

The fact that Trayvon was into drugs, fighting, was suspended for drugs... was doing pictures like a gang-banger, smoking pot and with sagging pants while flipping everyone off... these all support the notion he was a troubled teen. His mother had sent him to be with his dad because she couldn't control him.

By: bfra on 6/21/13 at 10:34

Ben - Get over yourself! You have your dreamed up theories with no proof which you should see by now, only other trolls are buying. Your time would be better spent trying to get those feet out of your mouth.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/21/13 at 10:34

So are you saying that Zimmerman knew all of this before or after the police told him to stop?

By: brrrrk on 6/21/13 at 10:39

BenDover said

"Sometimes troubled boys do stupid things like attack armed men too, brrrrk."

Who pursued who? Why shouldn't Martin have the right to defend himself? He had as much of a reason to be where he was as Zimmerman did. And what would you have done if you were in Martins position? You say forget about the race aspect, OK. So again, race aside, if you were being followed by an armed man that you didn't know, what would you have done? Certainly you're not going to argue that Martin deserved to die because he was stupid? Even you're not that big of as ass.....

By: Captain Nemo on 6/21/13 at 10:39

Ben it all comes down to Zimmerman’s insisting on not following protocol and seeing a hooded figure as a thug. Therefore he assumed Martin to be guilty and with his gun, that made him right.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/21/13 at 10:41

Ben if Zimmerman had not had a gun, do you think he would have been so enthusiastic about his pursuit of Martin?

If you boil this down to it's essence, this is a teenager doing stupid things, as I said before, giving the "finger" and smoking pot. I wonder how many folks could claim they never did these things? (I take Mr. BenDover's embellishment, "like a gang-banger" and "sagging pants" as extraneous, biased commentary- which it is.)

I saw a kid just like this an hour or so ago in the parking lot of Walgreens.... lots of tats too... does he count. Wait, probably not... he was white.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/21/13 at 10:46

I think Ben's description of Martin, is more incline to that of Jughead.

By: BenDover on 6/21/13 at 10:46

"His surprising testimony came the same day that ABC News exclusively obtained a photograph showing the bloodied back of Zimmerman's head, which was apparently taken three minutes after he shot and killed Martin. The photo could give credence to Zimmerman's claim that Martin had bashed his head against the concrete as Zimmerman fought for his life."

Ben,

Once again, race aside, if you were being followed by an armed man that you didn't know, what would you have done?

By: BenDover on 6/21/13 at 10:52

So now we've moved on from, "he didn't do it" to "he was justified in doing it"?

By: bfra on 6/21/13 at 10:53

Ben - I remember when that picture surfaced & it was several days after the incident. Thus the reason for asking for pictures with dates.

By: HoundDog on 6/21/13 at 10:53

"The photo could give credence to Zimmerman's claim that Martin had bashed his head against the concrete as Zimmerman fought for his life."

Mr. BenDover, the operative word in the sentence above is "could." It "could" also give credence to the version of events I posited in my 9:03 post. Once again, an open mind is a wonderful asset.

By: bfra on 6/21/13 at 10:54

Ben - You are gullible!

By: BenDover on 6/21/13 at 10:54

Who is trying to rationalize his predisposition?

By: BenDover on 6/21/13 at 10:57

I guess it's good that Zimmerman is innocent until proven guilty since the prosecutors will have to prove it's not self defense to convict him.

Looks like the majority of people here have already decided that it's not self defense though.

And somehow I'm the closed minded one?

By: brrrrk on 6/21/13 at 10:57

Ben,

Answer the question...... race aside, if you were being followed by an armed man that you didn't know, what would you have done to defend yourself?
