    I just saw a blurb that said that George Zimmerman has started a lawsuit against ( I think ) NBC.
    Anyone know anything about this ? I have no trusted source for this info.

    P.S. My computer and phone lines seldom let me read the interesting stuff like the above links.

    Zimmerman had filed suit against NBC News for their edited report on his call to 911. The edited version reflected that Z was racially motivated whereas the unedited tape shows that wasn't the case. That NBC report was the source of all of the racial profiling stories that were carried...are carried to this day. I heard NPR report today that commented on Z being racially motivated.

    The suit was suspended because of the trial but now that that's over, the suit will proceed. NBC sort of makes a habit of getting the story wrong to suit their purpose.

    I guess that makes more sense than he just bought a drink and some candy to bring home. It is becoming an epidemic too. My kid asked me to buy him a snicker bar, I am working on getting him in rehab.

    if a person is driving down the street with a pressure cooker, ball bearings, and gun powder. That he got at the farm and home store. and I am driving DUI and run a light and kill him. Do I not get charged 'cause the guy I killed needed killing?
    were is the line, who draws it and who can cross it???

    that Bill guy seems to have spent a lot of time trying to say why Martin needed killing.

    Again:

    You are entitled to your own opinion, you are not entitled to your own facts.

    BAD comparison Ken. I did not take away that anyone "deserved" to be killed from Mr. Whittle's commentary. How ridiculous.

    Watch it again, there is so much more at play and his entire POINT is the media and its abhorant disregard for fairness and truth.

    I think the prosecuters screwed this up from the beginning and just look what a gem that lady is turning out to be--this whole thing is sad and disturbing. No one deserved to be killed Ken.


    You were not there, I was not there. I am not going to second guess the jury.
