Following a link I saw in a Tweet tonight I was led to an unbelievable POS at Talk Left.
TL is supposedly “The Online Magazine with Liberal coverage of crime-related political and injustice news” Bullshit.
It was like reading a Fox News report, but worse.
On President Obama’s speech yesterday:
The most objectionable part of his comments: Not once did he express any empathy for George Zimmerman, the man who was acquitted who spent the past 16 months under the cloud of criminal charges, and who continues to have a target on his back.
Empathy for a man who murdered an unarmed 17 year old?
I thought it couldn’t get worse than that but it does.
More below the fold.
What twisted reality does this supposed lawyer live in?
The President, like so many others, refuses to acknowledge that George Zimmerman had no avenue of retreat from the beating Martin was inflicting on him. Zimmerman would have prevailed on self-defense without a stand your ground law. The only additional element a stand your ground law adds to traditional self-defense is the elimination of a duty to retreat if one is available.
Based on the account of Zimmerman, the other party couldn’t give a statement, he was dead. And Zimmerman contradicted himself many times in interviews.
As far as his avenue of retreat, he gave up when he got his sorry ass out of his vehicle after being advised not to.
It is unfortunate that Trayvon Martin lost his life, but he was wrong to use his fist and the cement as a weapon and attack George Zimmerman.
At least be original with your bullshit and don’t echo West and O’Mara.
Oh, and according to this “former Constitutional Law Professor, it wasn’t about race.
Whether Martin was black, white or purple was not a factor at the time of the shooting. Zimmerman’s will to live without permanent brain damage was entirely reasonable
I sure as hell am glad she’s not teaching her version of the Constitution anymore.
A legal analysis is one thing, this is a full blown racist defense of a murder, and on a so called liberal blog.
And let me warn you, don’t read the comments if you don’t want to be even more sickened.
