    Please, all, let's pray that no matter what the verdict that no one else is injured or killed due to this case.

    How come this board doesn't have other threads? Like an OT thread, a poll thread, etc? Just curious.

    ETA: nix the poll thread, we have one! lol...

    Your absolutely right. So TM could have been in fear for his life. You know, someone repeatedly following you? Why does GZ have more rights then TM?

    Linda,

    There is a whole culture and mannerism that goes on in this country that many are not aware of. That is why many thought that RJ was not creditable. What she said and the way she said things people from the street could see that she was telling the truth.

    TM used two so called racial slurs toward GZ. It is the context of the word and the way he used them dictates if it was racial or not. Remember TM called GZ a Creepy @ss Cracker and then said Dis Ni**er is following me.

    Both words are on the opposite end of the spectrum racially but on the same perspective when used in the descriptive form.

    Depending on the region of the country peckerwood is the alternate word to cracker.

    The cultures in America is something else.

    Hello!

    I didn't get to watch all of the closing arguments this morning. Did the DT show pics of TM smoking pot, holding a gun, or flipping off the camera?

    Protestors (apparently all white) are gathered outside of the court house. Is the jury aware of this? I hope not. Interesting that the protestors have big fancy commercially produced signs. :rolleyes:

    IMO.

    The core of the story doesn't have room to change. It happened in such a small time frame and no one can dispute the fact that GZ killed TM, not even GZ. Those small aspects and the fact that GZ feels the need to alter them hold a lot of weight for me, IMO. GZ's demeanor is very reserved and devoid of emotion. That may have given him an advantage during a lie detector test. There's a reason lie detector tests are not included during trials. They can't be relied on. And certainly you would know a skip from a run.

    I don't know if it was exactly skipping, but GZ doesn't to seem to have an extensive vocabulary when speaking about physical activity. A person can sprint (over 10 mph), run (6-10 mph), jog (4-6mph), speed walk (3-4mph), and walk (under 3 miles). Those are general ranges, some people can speed walk over 5mph or walk aound 3.5-4mph. TM might have been between speed walking and jogging and to GZ in the dark it may have appeared as skipping. It looks like skipping to me, when some people do it. Has no one ever seen hurdlers or sprints during warm ups? They are skipping to get warmed up.

    IMO

    I hope the jury gets it right and finds him guilty of 2nd degree or manslaughter. JMO

    I agree, it does not make sense, and there's no way of knowing what GZ meant, but in my opinion. I don't think skipping was involved. IMO, JMO

    So I can follow someone, have a confrontation with them, and as long as I let them throw the first punch I can shoot them? Dunno, sounds alarming to me.

    This issue is too volatile. A mod is needed at all times the thread is open.
    We are blessed to have THIS one.

    What a shame. It would be nice to have an OT thread or something because there is only one gear in this one which is ARGUE! and it gets kind of tiresome.

    Communist party group, probably there just to draw attention to themselves, imo. There is a "media village" to play too. MOO

    If there were scientific evidence that could back up the far-fetched theory that GZ's broken nose was the result of recoil, without a doubt the prosecution would have presented it. No evidence was presented to show that GZ's broken nose could have resulted from recoil. As this is a trial discussion thread, can we please put that theory to rest. JMO. OMO. MOO.

    Regardless of the verdict, I'm swearing off these trials. I said that after the Anthony trial, but stuck my nose into this one about a week after it started. I'm wasting far too much time on something that can be so nerve-wracking plus I'm not getting any work done. :crazy:

    JMO, but in most cases the defendant lawyers up and doesn't talk to LE. That was not the case here. GZ had already given his account of what happened .

    No! If anyone airs the upcoming trials where we have Jeff Ashton's office prosecuting some Crump & Parks clients for manslaughter in a horrific hazing on a band bus you have got to watch.

    This is MY OPINION ONLY but I think the reason TM bashed GZ a few times is because either GZ brandished the weapon or told TM he had a gun.

    I just cannot imagine GZ getting that far into a confrontation and not using his gun (or even the fact that he had it).

    He had that gun for a reason, IMO, and it was because he wanted to use it. Only TM got a few punches in before he did. Maybe he only wanted to use it as a show of power over one of thsoe "punks" and didn't really want to kill soemone, but damn, he wanted that gun to make him a big man. IMO And when you pull a gun out at a fist fight, you are fully responsible for what happens because of that. IMO.
