    Re: Judge throws out George Zimmerman's libel suit against NBC

    Trayvon's getting his revenge on this man. Multiple arrests, frivolous lawsuit thrown out, his life is essentially in shambles - I guess all that money he got from copying AP photographs and running them through photoshop ran dry.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

Just like the rest of the media that sided with Trayvon tried to use all the 911 calls that Z had made since he lived in that area as only calling on black people, despite the fact that he had also called on other races also. The media, includeing NBC or whatever it is tried time and again to portray Zimmerman as racist. So much so that it riled the Black Panthers up enough to offer a reward for Zimmermans capture, dead or alive.

    I well and truely believe that the Media should be utterly ashamed of itself for how they handled this whole thing.
    I agree, and I just want to add: I wish (and maybe there is this possibility) people could sue for slander by negligence. You shouldn't be able to 'accidentally' leave out such obviously relevant facts, and then broadcast it for the world to consume. Malice or negligence, the outcome is the same.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    If I write or say something, I am responsible for writing or saying that. If someone acts in response to something I said, *they* are responsible for their actions. Do you want to know why?

    because everyone is responsible for their own actions.

    It will be appealed, obviously.

    And whether you like Zimmerman or not, NBC did malign him again and again.

    They need to be held accountable.

    Nonsense.

    This will be appealed, and Trayvon will have nothing to do with it.

    Trayvons dead. No way for him to get any kind of revenge.

    To me, your post implied that is someone acts based on something I say, then I am responsible for their acts

    But they are responsible for the words and or actions that they use that may spur people into action.
    If I misunderstood you, then it's my bad, but your words (in the context of a thread about a libel suit) suggest otherwise

    The fact that he had a gun doesn't make him automatically right or wrong. I know we want to see the eeeeeevil libruls crucified....but just let it go.

    If in the absense of your words a person would not have acted, but with your words they do then you are partly to blame. Not for the actions that they take. But for your words that prompted them to take action. Your response seems to indicate that your words hold no power what so ever. That you can say anything and everything and it will not cause any response what so ever. If this is true then...what are your thoughts on the word "nigger" being used by a white guy against a black guy?
