Probably the most bizarre and dumbest reply to me in FYM I can remember.
Not that I was remotely "hurt" by it. I wasn't. I actually thought it was funny how someone could be so ignorant.

Your problem is not using the "wrong words". That excuse is like those who say they are misquoted when someone takes them word for word. Or say their words are twisted around by using an actual quote. No, the problem here is not with the words. It's the thinking. That's what you need to work on. Not figuring out a way to keep your thinking by masking it with different words.

I didn't reply to you then because I try to remain above such complete and total ignorance. To presume so much about something you know absolutely nothing about? Hell, you know less about me than the regulars around here and the regulars here don't know jack shit about me either. And I've been here a long time. I don't make personal value judgments about them and they don't do it to me. Look at the bullshit you're continually saying about other people on a personal level. All that matters in this place are the opinions you put forth here. That's the extent of it. And you should do it with respect.

It's not the words you are using - it's what you actually mean. It's how you view things. That's the problem. The paradigm you are trapped in. The paradigm that leads you to make such a dumb ass ignorant reply to me. I've got to be one of 'those people' right? Whatever bullshit that led you to that view - that - SPECIFICALLY - is what you need to work on. I won't be holding my breath for an apology from you.

Sounds like George needs to repair his image once again. Unfortunately, car accidents with families inside that need to be saved don't just fall out of the sky.

here is the CNN article

George Zimmerman taken into police custody after incident with wife - CNN.com


there was a gun in his house, but not on his person

too bad, if he was armed (because he was in his house and there were two others), his wife and father-in-law he could have reasonably feared for his life and killed them both and avoided that costly divorce, maybe even collected some life insurance

I doubt many marriages could survive the media circus that was suffered by the Zimmermans.

George Zimmerman was detained after his estranged wife told 911 that he had threatened her and her father with a weapon, Lake Mary, Florida, police told reporters Monday.

Zimmerman was being cooperative, Lake Mary police spokesman Zach Hudson said.

Shellie Zimmerman, who filed for divorce last week, called 911 just after 2 p.m. ET, Lake Mary Police Chief Steve Bracknell said. She told police that George Zimmerman was inside the house with a gun and was threatening her family, the chief said.

Bracknell added that Shellie Zimmerman claimed her husband "battered her father," according to the call report. It was unclear if he received medical treatment from first responders from the fire department.


it seems difficult enough just to survive George Zimmerman.

New trial for Marissa Alexander

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A Florida appeals court is ordering a new trial for Marissa Alexander, the local mother now serving a mandatory 20 year prison sentence for a dispute with her husband.

The 1st District Court of Appeal ruled that a judge did not properly instruct the jury handling the case.

Alexander's case earned national attention because she tried to use the Stand Your Ground law as a defense.

She claimed her husband was abusive and threatened her during a dispute in 2010. She claimed she fired a gun in a wall near her husband and her two stepchildren as a warning.

The State Attorney's Office said Alexander's defense under Stand Your Ground was denied because a judge found she fired the shot in anger and not in fear.

Alexander was also offered a plea deal for three years in prison, which she refused.

A jury ultimately convicted Alexander on three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She received the maximum sentence of 20 years.

The appeals court did also state that the judge was right to block Alexander from using the state's "Stand Your Ground" law as a way to defend her actions.

Her case in Jacksonville has drawn attention and criticism aimed at mandatory-minimum sentencing laws.

Alexander's Attorney Bruce Zimet said a news conference will be held soon in Ft. Lauderdale or New York. His team is in the process of alerting Alexander of the overturn.

she is black, so the SYG laws obviously applied differently to her.

They've been showing this on CNN, it doesn't appear to be same type of case. Once you get past the headlines, the woman went a bit nuts and also put the lives of her children at risk.

I think you're looking for a comparison between these two cases - and there really isn't one.

JBLM soldier stabbed to death in Lakewood confrontation | The Today File | Seattle Times

Quote:
A Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier was stabbed to death in Lakewood, Pierce County, early this morning in what police described as a racially tinged confrontation.

The Lakewood Police Department reported that the man, 20, and two other active-duty soldiers were walking at 2:38 a.m. in the 12500 block of Pacific Highway Southwest when someone in a vehicle reportedly yelled something about the soldiers being white.

When one of the soldiers yelled back a comment about treating combat soldiers with disrespect, the car turned around and stopped next to them in a parking lot in the largely industrial area. Five men climbed out of the car and surrounded the soldiers as the verbal confrontation continued, according to the account provided to police by the victim’s friends.

When the driver determined the men were actually soldiers, he summoned his passengers back to the car. As they left, one appeared to bump a soldier, who fell to the ground as the car sped away.

“It was then that they discovered the victim had been stabbed and was bleeding profusely. The victim died at the scene,” according to a statement issued by police Lt. Chris Lawler.

Police and an emergency medical crew were called to the parking lot along Pacific Highway where the victim fell.

The suspects’ vehicle was described as a midnight-blue sedan similar to a BMW or Volkswagen Jetta, with tinted windows, stock rims and low-profile tires.

Descriptions were provided of four of the suspects, all reportedly black men believed to be in their early- to mid-20s.

The primary suspect was described as 6 foot 1, of medium build, wearing a blue zip-up hoodie. The driver was described as 5 foot 7, with short-cropped hair and wearing a shirt with horizontal blue and white stripes.

Two others were about 5 foot 7, one with short hair and a gray tank top, the other with camouflage pants possibly designed for paintball. There was no description of the fifth suspect.

The Police Department has asked that anyone with information about the incident, the suspects or the vehicle to call 253-798-4721.
Imagine the roles were reversed. Five racist white guys kill a black active duty soldier. I would expect and even bigger media circus than that of Trayvon Martin. But, the victim was white and the perpetrators black, so this won't make anything more than the local news.
