Zimmerman lawyer to move ‘asap’ against NBC News
Zimmerman lawyer to move ‘asap’ against NBC News

Quote:
Back in December, Zimmerman sued NBC Universal Media for defamation over the botched editing, which depicted him as a hardened racial profiler.

Here’s how NBC News, in a March 27, 2012, broadcast of the “Today” show, abridged the tape of Zimmerman’s comments to a police dispatcher on the evening of Feb. 26, 2012:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.
The full tape went like this:
Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about. Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?
Zimmerman: He looks black.
That wasn't "mis-editing", that was intentional.

The bastards probably don't even feel guilty at formenting the race riots in Oakland et al.

I'm almost willing to lower my standards to watch this sideshow again:

Do these same news outlets report, "President Obama, whose father is Kenyan and whose mother is white," every time they first mention his name in an article? No, because that would be pretty ridiculous, right? Every time I read that crap, I chafe a little.

I don’t give a f-ck about the race issue. A plain clothed neighborhood watch guy chasing down an unarmed teenager walking home from a convenience store confronting and shooting him dead is not something that you should get away with reguardless of the circumstances.

Perhaps in this twisted world all teens should carry guns so they can shoot the rent-a-cops first to protect themselves.

The verdict doesn’t surprise me though. The nation seems to de-evolving into a nation of the stupid.

Please tell me you are just trolling now...

You obviously know more about this case than the six jurors that were chosen by both counsels to be unbiased and who actually heard all of the evidence presented.

I don't like to be blunt, especially with srsbusniss internet stuff. But the stupidity you are talking about is exactly what you are. There is no other explanation other than you are unformed and making statements based on almost ZERO information, something stupid people do.

Please gtfo until you have any idea what you are talking about.

If that is what happened I would agree but its not what happened.

A more accurate portrayal would be that A plain clothed neighborhood watch guy identified a suspicious person fitting the description of individuals who had been committing robberies in his neighborhood. He calls the police and gets out of his vehicle to go confront the individual to inquire what he is doing in the area (which is not illegal and in most cases would result in a would be robber just leaving the scene because he was noticed). The teen noticed the gentlemen following him and called him a racial slur to the person he was talking to on the phone. The teen then eluded the plain clothed neighborhood watch guy who began to return to his vehicle. Afterward the teen doubled back instead of entering his home and confronted his pursuer. When asked, "What are you doing here?" the teen responded by assaulting the neighborhood watch guy and began pounding his head into the sidewalk. Neighborhood watch guy then pulls out his concealed carry and fires a single shot into the torso of his assailant in order to stop a violent assault that could have resulted in severe head trauma if it continued. Teen dies from wound.

This teen also has a history of criminal activity and violence. Often talks and posts online about beating people up.

Racist. You got all that based off his skin color. #JUSTICE4TRAY

If a guy half my age, in much better physical condition then me, and much larger than me starts to whip my ***, I am going to do what ever it takes to get out of the situation. If I have a weapon, I am using it. It is what we call survival.

This whole thing is taking us backwards.

I hope you're all ready for the only post that's actually worth paying attention to in this thread.

Both individuals are/were stupid at minimum.

So you can't ask someone you don't recognize what they're doing in your neighborhood without deserving to have your head smashed into the pavement?

It's funny how people take sides I'm pretty sure there was only two people who knew what happened and now only one person does people who say trayvon was a nice kid and didn't do anything stfu about the skittles you didn't know him and people who say zimmerman was just defending himself yes he was... if he was telling the truth (a big if) but if ur not outraged over every single murder then why are you so pissed about this one? I just can't stand hearing people argue about this anymore... ugh
