    Folks all over the world fretted and the case was made a cause celebre simply because Sharpton, Obama and Jackson involved themselves. But ultimately, after all the expense, hubbub and publicity the jury arrived at the identical conclusion as the initial police investigation and said, rightly, that the case should never have been brought to trial. Was the 'stand your own ground' law involved in any way in this latest case? Probably not.

    All due respect, but SYG wasn't involved in the zimmerman case. The defense did NOT use it.

    Right, they did not. But the law was still there and it must have played a roll in the initial police investigation. The jury recognized that it was clearly a case of self defense, as did most any rational person, and the Zimmerman defense did not need the SYG anyway.

    Thanks for the 'all due respect' by the way!!

    I think the reason they didn't use it was if they had a SYG hearing it would have occurred BEFORE the trial started..if they had a favorable ruling, the charges would have been dropped...but..if the judge denied, then they would have tipped their hand to the prosecution as to how they intended to defend zimmerman..it was a crapshoot. Obviously, in retrospect, they made the right choice...

I'm whining because if we want to be a post-race society we can't be judging these situations strictly on the basis of race. Which is what happens far too often.
    Since you seem unable to predict things that are happening, I doubt your ability to predict things that have yet to occur.

    And your claim to desire a post-race society is proven to be a lie by your constant race-baiting and imaginary victimhood

    He asserted that the TM protests somehow covered this as well.

    Set aside politics for a second...

    This case was certainly a "hate crime" however the reality is that these teenagers thought they were bored - now they have 25 (at minimum) years of bordem ahead of them.. Well that is unless real gangsters get a hold of them (which they will)....

    These kids have two choices now "be gangsters" in the joint or "be bitches."

    Their wannabe "manhood" is over or it has just begun - either way they're getting screwed...

    They're pawn "bitches" amongst their new peers now.
