    That makes more sense. The truth is, the phrase "people are responsible for their own words and actions" is not entirely true and the law reflects that. Words that are particularly "inciting" can leave one with (some measure of) responsibility, both legal and moral, for another person's acts.

    The idea that Zimmerman is the "second coming of Jesus" to anyone is utterly inane.

    So is the idea that Obama is the "second coming of Jesus" to Obama supporters.

    I agree. That phrase by itself is not entirely true. Which is why I added the whole bit about "the pen is mightier than the sword" and "peace or war" bit. Sorry for the confusion.

    Interesting you didn't direct this to the person who first brought this up.

    Again, I agree. Unfortenately there are those that believed it...at least at the begining of Obama's first term. I don't see it near as much now a days.

    I jumped to the end of the thread. Not much interesting about that. Do I need to go back and address the original comment so as not to offend the impartiality police?

    Lol - appealed until he finds a judge willing to hear it? Good luck finding a judge that wants that kind of publicity.

    And yet... George Zimmerman's life doesn't seem to catch a break. Trayvon's getting his revenge. I'll only be a matter of time before Zimmerman decides to put a bullet through his own skull.
