    It's weird that a fact that has been universally accepted for almost a year still gets trotted out as "news"

    I predict the riots will last longer than the trial.

    Right, because the lawyers working the case owe us everything they have as soon as they get it. How do they expect us to make a proper judgement without that stuff?

    That's a police photo. We got to see video from the police station fairly quickly. Why withhold this?

    Are you questioning the purity of the motivations of lawyers?

    Are you suggesting that providing the forum dwelling, blog writing, Monday morning armchair quarterbacking public with every shred of evidence in a timely manner isn't their primary objective?

    You are the one talking about lawyers. The media was able to get police video. Why not the face shot? Remember, ABC said Zimmerman had no injuries in the video at first. NBC news flat out framed him as a racist by doctoring the 911 tape. Zimmerman is going to be a rich man before this is all over.

    If you think Trayvon attacking Zimmerman has been "universally accepted" you must have missed all the discussions of it here, where the left-wingers insist Zimmerman was a neo-nazi trying to rob Trayvon of his Skittles.

    Hey! That probably happened moshing at a white power concert since he's so white and all. Just like the media told us. :rofl:

    And Arizona Iced Tea.


    Must have been the Tea Party's fault.

    I wiped my ass with some T-Ray just this morning... I mean TP... I get the two confused.

    As to why the police didn't release this photo, but did release grainy video, and 911 tapes that were subsequently altered, well, that might have been because of the campaign that George Zimmerman ran against the son of one of Sanford's police officers. A campaign where Zimmerman sought justice for a black man who was unjustly assaulted outside a nightclub by the son (on video no less) of a Sanford police officer.

    Whatever Zimmerman's outcome, the good news is that one less petty thug is here on Earth.

    Now, we know that the blondie Special Prosecutor from Jacksonville did such a thorough job investigating this. LOL

    It's universally accepted that Zimmerman was being beat. The photo brings absolutely no "news". What's in dispute is whether Zimmerman was legally justified in shooting Trayvon. Being beat, in itself, does not offer a cut-and-dried response to that question. Hence the trial, which may bring out some actual "news".

    Oh, so the news is that the media is biased.

    I apologize for accusing you of presenting old information as fresh.

    I can't tell whether you are serious or not.

    To me, getting an old time butt wippin is not reason enough to shoot someone. I will admit I've been on the receiving end of said butt wippins , and I have administered a couple when I was younger.

    If you feel froggy and jump on someone, you have to expect him to jump back on you. If you aren't ready for that, you shouldn't put yourself in that position.

    And that doesn't matter whether you are black, white, brown or purple. Whether you are in a bar or on the street.

    Maybe the world has changed that much though.

    My other comment about this situation is:

    Cases like Zimmerman's and others will spell the end of the Castle Doctrine in Florida as we know it. If not thrown out, it will end up neutered substantially.
