Really? Even after the Cambridge incident in 2009? Where he accused, unbeknownst to him, the officer in charge of the department's diversity training program as "acting stupidly" by interacting with a professional race-baiter who happened to be Barack's personal friend? I wasn't surprised in the least. Nor am I surprised he hasn't commented on the black-on-black violence in the communities he "organized" and legislatively represented in Illinois, his own uncle's DUI, driving under suspension, and remaining in the country illegally?

All said and told, I think we can pretty much count on him commenting upon anything that could be construed to his benefit, and ignoring that which detracts from his character or performance.

Sure are

Edit: a quick google search of "good shoot" relegates this term to its proper place: no where. Almost every reference to it in quotes is a question about a photo shoot.

I do admit my ignorance of the gun community and their colloquialisms, and am thankful for it, but in reference to a single shot fired under duress? It just sounds retarded.

Just saying.
So first of all, we have a "professional" that is willing to get in front of a camera and speculate publicly about a potential diagnosis of a subject they've never examined. Given the shaky ethics involved in such action, their professionalism is immediately suspect and one should consider the personal agenda of the "professional". One should also consider whether the media source that interviewed them did enough due diligence to present the public with a consensus of a variety of "professionals" or at least seek out an alternate viewpoint and present both in a balanced way. If the media source just stuck a camera in the face of one "professional" that presented a single viewpoint, especially a sensational one that fits in nicely with the rest of the source's message or further feeds the public uproar, double your doubt. If this "diagnosis" was delivered in 30 seconds or less during a 2 minute spot about the case, triple your doubt. If the "professional" is particularly photogenic, quadruple your doubt.

Second, we can assume the "professional" only has access to the same information we have about Zimmerman, which consists of the partial and altered information being delivered through the media. Unless this professional did his/her own investigation into Zimmerman, s/he doesn't even have a taped first person interview to review, since Zimmerman hasn't given any interviews. So they're basing their diagnosis on what the media finds newsworthy and what each side's lawyers are saying about Z and M. Yeah, sounds solid.

Third of all, did the "professional" really state s/he "believes he was the aggressor" or did s/he state that s/he sees Z as capable of aggression or having aggressive tendencies? If either of the latter are correct, it's not really relevant anyway, because it doesn't take into account the aggressive tendencies of Martin, AND it still doesn't tell us what actually happened between the two. If the former is correct, then the "professional" should present their evidence to the SPD/DA/DOJ so Z can be arrested and charged.

Just saying.

"Shoot" indicates an entire situation that involves gunfire (in this context). "Shot" indicates a specific discharge of a gun within the situation.

Reporters say they're "on the scene of a shooting". "Shoot" is just a compacted version of that noun that's entered the vernacular.

And in the examples you gave, "photo" and "turkey" are modifying nouns, meaning they're functioning as adjectives. "Photo" can also be a pure adjective when it's used as a compacted version of the adjective "photographic". Yes, it may also be a compacted version of the noun "photograph", but in this context, it doesn't matter, because it can be an adjective, or a modifying noun. Technically you could say we're heading out for a "photographic shooting", but it's simply more common (but still grammatically correct) to say "photo shoot" instead.

"We did the shoot yesterday."
"What kind of shoot?"
"A photo shoot with Jimmy's new chrome M3. We got some killer shots."


And btw, the most retarded phrase is using "rocking" as a verb to describe vehemently displaying or wearing stuff.

"I'm rockin this killer new guido hair gel."
"Dude, I'd totally rock those JDM stickers on my Volvo."
"Brah, you gonna be rockin' those new jeans at the party?"

As for the idiot claims about Zimmerman stalking and running this kid down, the 911 call may just prove you wrong:

http://dailycaller.com/2012/04/02/91...rates-story/2/
Quote:
At 2:07, Zimmerman tells the dispatcher, "He's running."

At 2:09, you can hear a car door open and an alarm begins that is undoubtedly the "door open, keys in ignition" warning on Zimmerman's truck.

At 2:13, you can clearly hear the car door slamming shut, and the alarm stops.

At 2:17, Zimmerman's voice wobbles and he starts breathing heavily into the phone, indicating that he has started running.

At 2:22, without any prompting other than the aforementioned noises and breathing, the dispatcher asks "Are you following him?" to which Zimmerman responds, "Yeah."

At 2:26, the dispatcher says, "Okay, we don't need you to do that," to which Zimmerman responds, "Okay."

Zimmerman proceeds to give the dispatcher his name. Then he says, "He ran."

Zimmerman can still be heard breathing into the phone until about 2:39, at which point the heavy breathing stops entirely, a mere 13 seconds after the dispatcher asked him to stop following. A very calm and collected Zimmerman then proceeds to give the dispatcher his own information, directions and a description of his location for another 1 minute and 33 seconds.

The difference between someone running while on the phone and not running can be heard quite clearly, and I encourage readers to listen for themselves.

There's another reason to believe that Zimmerman stopped following Martin: After he gives the dispatcher his personal address, at 3:35, he says, "Oh crap, I don't want to give that all out. I don't know where this kid is," meaning he is worried Martin might hear where he lives. If Zimmerman doesn't even know where Martin is, would it even be possible for him to still be following Martin at this point? Would it even be possible for him to have continued following Martin after hanging up the phone - a full two minutes after he first got out of his car and a minute and a half after he fully stops breathing heavily - unless Martin came back and revealed himself?

I said this many pages ago. There is absolutely ZERO evidence that Zimmerman followed Martin after he was told NOT to. He got out of his car because the dispatcher asked him which way Martin was heading, and Zimmerman lost sight of him.

I think #4 applies to most of the usual suspects here at e46f. Hell NFRs2000nyc admitted he was a bigot. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.

And you would be following him.

Go ahead and get your gun out. JJ won't go down like Trayvon did.

I asked first.

But to humor you, out of all the garbage you've posted, this is not too bad.

T (IMHO) didn't have the right to SHG because based on all the witness statements I've read and listened to, the 911 calls and "evidence" since released... I believe that T attacked Z first. Based on that, he was the aggressor and did not have a right to SHG as he was on the offensive.
Now that all can change... say T attacked Z, then he backed up and stopped the attack....the Z attacked T... this isn't black and white, things can change back and forth.

That being said... I believe T attacked first and when T was shot by Z, T was ON TOP of him clearly indicating he was still attacking

I still haven't figured out why the media is so insistent on painting this as "White on black violence" ...the guy was Hispanic...does "Hispanic on black violence" not get enough ratings?

You can't be serious?

Why does Michael Bay use explosions in his movies?
Why do they use hot women in porn?
