Good interview.  It shows that the system worked and the evidence presented overcame this woman's emotion and bias.  Thanks for posting.

You're welcome.  Luckily no one has ever worried about the system being broken, fsquid.  Its the laws. Unless you were worried about the court system being 'broken' and just kept it to yourself.

Perhaps thats why you havent responded to any of the postings about ALEC.

maybe not on here, but I've heard it among people at work, etc.  I agree with you and lake that the law certainly should get a second look.

Were you really sitting around wondering why no one on MJ was talking about a little known case from 2009 in Rochester that no one knew about until 24hrs ago when it was dug up and compared to Zimmerman.

I found this interview interesting in that the juror said race was not a factor in this case.  That issue has convoluted discussion about the law and race at every step of the way in this particular circumstance.  I think for the sake of this case we are talking about what the laws as written allow.  To the issue of race and profiling, this case served to spark long pent up emotions and views but that issue is not at the core of all that happened in Sanford.  The only good that will come of it will come via examination of current laws as a result of the verdict and an ongoing and open dialog about racism for our collective future.

Some people of color were also hurt by the Montgomery bus boycotts and ending of slavery. When these things come along, they are normally done for the greater good of the larger community. I don't think these individual unorganized boycotts will make much of an impact either way, so I wouldn't lose any sleep over them. Nevertheless, if someone wants to boycott the state, so be it. I've been doing the same with KFC since I was 12 after a bad incident there. I'm sure others avoid other businesses, people, etc.

yes.  bill gets his info mostly from the local Klavern apparently.  He's been all over those criminal blacks for a couple of years, because ....you know: white pride.

Here's his posting history.  Its mostly hateful little posts about politics.

Also, no matter the truth in the Zimmerman case, a lady in Jax got sentenced today to 20 years for firing warning shots off at her abusive husband. I don't care which way you go on the Zimmerman case, if you don't agree that this incident (warning shots) was a proper Stand your Ground case and that she should be freed then you probably shouldn't be allowed to have opinions on firearm defense laws.
The HEADLINE read "Mother Gets 20 Years for Firing Warning Shots.  The ARTICLE said the facts of the case.  She was in a fight with her husband.  She left the home. She got in her car.  She got her gun out of the car. She returned to the home.  She can be heard on the 911 tape clearly saying, "I've got something for you" and fired several shots inches from her husband and children's head.  The crime scene unit determined one ricocheted and ended up in the ceiling.

"Woman gets 20 years for trying to kill husband, children, claims it was warning shots" does not get as many hits and re-sends as "Woman gets 20 years for firing warning shots."   The jury took less than 20 minutes to find her guilty.   I'm sorry - but a warning shot AT YOUR HEAD is not a warning shot any more than shooting someone seven times with a six-shot revolver is a "cleaning accident".
