You live in Florida, right? How do people feel about the state right now?

I have some friends from Florida who live here and they are really ashamed of Florida. Not just because of this, but also because of Casey Anthony and a few other things.

Get this crap off this board. Its one of the few places that Scruffy can go to avoid all this insignificant BS.

Now all he has left is the Gaming Board.

re: Well, looks like David Simon is a douche


I didn't discuss the case with many people but the few that I have: (paraphrasing)

Baby Boomer Jewish couple from Jersey:
Zimmerman probably faked the injuries and should've been guilty of murder.

30 year old white guy at work (professional): you can't get a murder charge when somebody attacks you


I work in some really shitty areas in Riviera Beach but haven't seen any kinds of mass gatherings or anything like that and I've been out a lot the past few days.

I honestly think most rationale people feel that Zimmerman probably was overzealous but it was a form of self defense and that there is no way to convict what he was being charged with.

The local news has probably been a bit slanted to the Martin side of it but not like Piers Morgan/Nancy Grace level or anything like that.

Probably a lot more attention back up around St. Aug south toward Volusia county and then inland.

Go to the Gaming Board and start a thread about that.

One of the comments on that link you posted:

quote:

Everyone of you are fools. Our legal system has spoken. Get over it.
Martin assaulted Zimmerman and payed for it with his life. Bottom line.
Nothing illegal about following someone.
All your racist BS is really getting stupid and old.
Zimmerman was business partners with a black man.
Zimmerman stood up to the Sanford police department on their handling of a homeless black man.
Zimmerman tutored two orphaned black kids.
Zimmerman gave his black neighbors a key to his house when they experienced a home invasion.
Zimmerman took a black girl to his prom.
Drop the racist BS, it's really starting to fall on deaf ears.
There has been 11,000 black murders by blacks nation wide since Trayvon Martin died yet not a dam peep out of fools about it.
Just a note to the dumbass telling people to pick up bricks: Notice there's no rioting in Florida?
1 out of 17 floridians carry concealed weapons.


Damn..

David Simon was an investigative journalist who worked DIRECTLY homicide detectives in Baltimore and wrote several books about Baltimore lower class. You may not agree with him but you have to respect the fact that he probably knows more about this than you do.


No, no it doesn't.

re: Well, looks like David Simon is a douche


I don't disagree that it is dumb, but I see no ignorance in it.

I can see how chaos would benefit us....

Democracy is only possible when constituents believe in the system. It's to the point where we all agree that there is nothing we can do that the state doesn't hear our pleas.

The ignorance isn't in what he said. Maybe in how he said it. You ignorant boyee

Honestly..

I was going to make a thread on the Movie board how we really missed out on "The Wire" touching on this issue.

Imagine Herc following Dukie...

Dukie then responds by attacking Herc. Some how skinny Dukie gets the the best of Herc. Herc is in a vulnerable position and is forced to use deadly force killing Dukie. Then all the political drama to follow..

It would have been a powerful moment in The Wire history imo.

Simon is far from an idiot even if he is out of line with these comments. He absolutely has dealt with urban violence in real life, and he has a point of view. So what?

I just want this Zimmerman and Trayvon shite to be over. I didn't follow it that closely and hated listening to a-holes from both sides pontificate about it.
