    Actually I wouldn't. Shooting unarmed person is not the same as an ass beating. In fact in a situation like that I'd probably be like "why the **** did the person that got their beat follow someone?"


    No...the Fox News comment doesn't mean they didn't happen. It means that instances get turned into widespread occurrences. Kind of how like fox new viewers in Oklahoma are deathly afraid of the New Black Panther party and it's 4 members based in Philly or where ever they are based.



    How dare they protest. Black folks should know better right? Protesting is only for white Tea Partiers that wanna get the government out of the Medicare.
    Police make judgements based on facts ALL the time regarding evidence, arrest, and trial. You DO know that, right? ALL evidence offered showed who the aggressor was. All witness testimony proved it. Thats WHY the police interviewed everyone, collected data, and determined there was no case. Zimmerman was acting as a neighborhood watch officer. Nothing less...nothing more...and in your mind, that JUSTIFIES someone...ANYONE...attacking the neighborhood watch officer?

    Yeah...protest away. BTW...are you protesting the child shot in Atlanta? The kids killed in Chicago? The teenagers shot on Obamas doorstep in Chicago? the 11,000 (lets spell that out...it is so much more dramatic ELEVEN THOUSAND dead black people since the Z/M incident...a shooting that occurred because the 17 year old determined that the CORRECT course of action when being followed is to circle back and attack the person following you..and...you ENDORSED THAT ACTION...right? Bull****. In any other circumstance your ass would be bleating on about how a violent assault was not an appropriate course of action. But...its DIFFERENT in this case...isnt it.

    Clearly you don't know crap, and continue to prove it. It is moronic behavior like yours that causes so many problem is society.

    Who cares? And conservatives want to get rid of Obama. That's what civil society does...protest when they feel upset with how the system is working.
    Good lord, WTF does that have to do with what was said? Nothing. A bad attempt to divert.

    You know what they aren't doing? Lynching people and using terrorizing whites...which is what this cartoon is alluding to.
    When a court finds someone not guilty, and people 'protest' because they want them found guilty, and will work for another court case to ensure some sort of guilt is found, they ARE terrorizing that person. When social media is full of threats to that person, when people are attacked in the name of 'justice' because they didn't like the outcome of the trial, they are terrorizing people. When people excuse their behavior, be it Sharpton or the Obama, they are just as responsible...

    Yeah...police make judgments all the time based on the fact. I'm fine with that in most circumstances from car accidents to other instances.

    When a death is involved...there should be more scrutiny. Once again...I guess I'm the crazy person here.

    Yeah...protest away. BTW...are you protesting the child shot in Atlanta? The kids killed in Chicago?

    Very lame talking point. As if anybody thinks that conservatives care about poor black people in Chicago. The liberal coalition including the vast majority of blacks have been trying to alleviate the effects of poverty in black communities for decades...and conservatives have been fighting those policies for decades.

    No...they didn't say he "started it". They said that Zimmerman was getting his ass beat when he fired his weapon.

    Here's what they did say

    Among his conclusions:

    If Zimmerman's retelling of the event were accurate, the confrontation Zimmerman described with Martin would have occurred much sooner than it actually did;
    Zimmerman covered more time and distance after leaving his truck that night than he revealed to police;
    based on the times and distances Zimmerman said he covered, Zimmerman would have still been on the phone with Sanford police when he claims he was attacked by Martin;
    had Martin walked directly to his destination, his father’s girlfriend's townhome, he would have made it there safely before Zimmerman ended his nonemergency call to Sanford police;
    Martin was in fact leaning over Zimmerman when the fatal shot was fired, just as Zimmerman has maintained.

    What behavior? Disagreeing with you? With the great Arbo on the intraweb! Calling Arbo racist because I believe he is? How dare I!

    Good lord, WTF does that have to do with what was said? Nothing. A bad attempt to divert
    I thought it was obvious. I'll break it down.

    In Democracies we protest when we don't like outcomes or things we don't agree with. One potential protest is political in nature. Like the Tea party. Some may be social in nature, like people that protest gay pride events. Protesting the verdict of a case with national attention is similar. It's individuals unhappy with an outcome displaying that unhappiness in a civil manner in a public space. This is "freedom of speech".

    Now a lot of times those protests may end up with nothing accomplished (like getting rid of Obama or retrying Zimmerman) but they are cathartic and serve a purpose. People feel like their views to be heard even when they know they are powerless to shape events.

    When a court finds someone not guilty, and people 'protest' because they want them found guilty, and will work for another court case to ensure some sort of guilt is found, they ARE terrorizing that person. When social media is full of threats to that person, when people are attacked in the name of 'justice' because they didn't like the outcome of the trial, they are terrorizing people. When people excuse their behavior, be it Sharpton or the Obama, they are just as responsible...
    Oh my...social media is full of threats. That's never happened...

    They are not terrorizing that person. Do you think people for example...were terrorizing Casey Anthony when they protested her not guilty verdict?
    Once again...public protest....free speech...venting...cathartic.

    Once again...please remind me when conservatives have ever cared about big urban centers in the US. Hell...most of the time that's not even "Real America" to you folks.

    It was, you were trying to divert with more nonsense.

    They are not terrorizing that person.
    That you don't see it as what it is, speaks volumes.

    I see this is not a public poll.

    Does that mean it would be OK for me to call everyone a douche who
    voted that the cartoon is not offensive? I mean, anonymous members
    should not enjoy the same protection as identified members, should they?

    Even if it is not OK I think that the truth should be a defense.
