It goes both ways.

I'm withholding judgement of this case in particular until the court/jury decide.

A central FL jury will let him walk.

Justice will come after the trial is over.

Walk out of courtroom. Sue NBC. Collect moneys, buy property in Bora Bora. Enjoy tanning and coconut drinks with little umbrellas for the rest of your life. Gotta love justice.

I will hold judgement until after the trial. It just doesn't pass the BS meter.

Yes.
You can do a brake check and if they hit you, it's commonly accepted practice that the guy hitting someone in the back is at fault (for not maintaining safe distance).

Now translate that to the Z - T case please.

Would have been nice if everyone else including Obama, the media, the congress lady, and the celebrities did the same thing.

If they did what you want there would be no trial.

Exactly. There is no evidence to have a trial in the first place so they fabricated it.

As it should be, since so far there's been no evidence of a crime being committed.

Obama didn't really make any judgement for one side or the other. He said the incident was a tragedy.
Quote:
"If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon," Obama said, underscoring how the issue affected him on a personal, and not just a political or legal, level. "I think [Trayvon's parents] are right to expect that all of us as Americans are going to take this with the seriousness it deserves, and we are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened."

Obama was careful not to get too far ahead of events. He said he was wary of "impairing" an ongoing legal process but praised the fact that federal, state and local law enforcement are now working together on Martin's death.

"Obviously, this is a tragedy," he said. "I can only imagine what these parents are going through, and when I think about this boy, I think about my own kids, and I think every parent in America should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this, and that everybody pulls together -- federal, state and local -- to figure out exactly how this tragedy happened."

The incident was not a tragedy whatsoever. The incident was A great example of american freesom. A scumbag attacked an innocent person and lost. A victim was able to defend himself against a no limit drug dealing thug. What is a tragedy however is Obamas backyard, where people are getting killed daily yet he says nothing about that.

You must be a really cold hearted person to say something like that. You don't think it's a tragedy that the family is at a loss, or Zimmerman, guilty or innocent, will probably never live a normal life and will be on the run?

Don't know about you, but having been around death in Iraq, it isn't something to be taken lightly.

Hardly a cold hearted person. Death is a common occurrence in the US. People die needlessly all the time especially innocent people. If someone broke into your house to rape your wife but you killed him before he had the chance you view that as a tragedy? No. It is a feel good story of a bad person getting what they deserve. When a family of a victim finds out that the man who killed their daughter is getting the death penalty, a sea of relief floods over them. Are they cold hearted? No. The tragedy is that an innocent person had his life ruined (along with his parents) because of some punk thug, an over zealous DA that wanted to boost her political career, scumbag celebrities and a POS racist president decided that Zimmerman is a criminal irrespective of the evidence at hand. So again, no this was not a tragedy. This was an innocent person who exercised his rights and defended himself against a vicious attack. It is no more a tragedy than Compton or the south side of Chicago.

As for being around death, I served in the IDF, so I am quite familiar with death and don't take it lightly at all, however, I celebrate life and in this case, the victim was able to survive, which in my eyes, is never a tragedy.

That's your opinion.
You'll understand that I put zero trust in you (or anyone else not directly involved with the case), as you have not seen anything that was not presented by the media. And y'all made the case that the media is not trustworthy.
I prefer to believe the jury.
