Touche. Although you lot were one of the best customers the Southern cotton plantation system had, and came closer to militarily interevening on Jeff Davis's behalf than any other country. (FYI, you still owe us two ironclads.) And the Confederacy was a bunch of amateurs compared to the Glory That Was The Raj.

Way to represent the state of Lincoln.
If you knew anything about Illinois you would know there is little I could do that would tarnish our states reputation further than has already been done by our governors. Besides I just talk out of my ass don't take me seriously.
No worries, friend. It might be that I am a bit too much of a frothing at the mouth, clawing at the air fan of the Man In Black, but I have made it too far in life to start acquiring a sense of proportion now.

Although considering that Chicago alone has sent more elected officials from the halls of statecraft to the hoosegow than the entire state of Louisiana (google "Edwin Edwards" and
"William 'Dollar Bill' Jefferson" if you a want a perspective on Louisiana politics) I figured I wouldn't be completely out of line.
Shocking, the guy turns out to be full of **** about his injuries/condition. So what's left is a grown ass guy, armed, stalking a 17 year old in his SUV, for being suspicious (black). He calls the police, where he's told not to follow him, and does so anyway, says "f-ing c**ns on the phone, exits the vehicle armed, and goes to find him. An altercation follows and he shoots the 17 year old dead.

The outrage is that a grown man could stalk a 17 year old, say some racial **** on the phone, follow him, shoot him dead, and somehow not be charged at all. He gave every indication he was acting with malicious forethought, and charges should have been automatic considering the sum of evidence.
Apologists for racial intolerance should pick a better cause. This guy made it obvious. Charges will now follow. Manslaughter at the very least. It should be a hate crime, and murder.
It is not illegal, even in Florida, to be black and on foot.
I need to create a bobby is drunk and can't read thread. How many times does Devil have to post he is a bigot and racist until some of you get it through your thick heads?
Are you the people that scream "FIRE" AFTER Emergency Services are already doing their jobs?
Please read it thoroughly and then continue with the picture conspiracy theories.
Lot of armchair detectives on the interwebs. Ever think that maybe there is a reason that the police or the DA haven't laid charges as of yet?
Just because you may WANT someone arrested doesn't mean that there is actual PC to arrest someone.
This latest photograph stuff reminds me of the all the WTC/911 photographs "proving" that the towers were taken down by controlled demo.
Not that Zimmerman shouldn't be charged if he indeed is guilty. But there has been a TON of conclusion jumping going on around this case.
You know what? It's Friday and I'm in a good mood. I'm going to let this one slide since it's way too easy. I'm in the mood for more of a challenge.

Thank you IiF. Not only do we have the arresting officer's testimony, but the fire department performed first aid on Zimmerman prior to him being taken to the police station. Note that this doesn't make him not guilty of murder; but, the nonsense about what the low-res video shows should stop here.
