17 year old teen, no weapon, walking home, minding his own business. Dead minutes later. His story.. his side.. died with him.
Ppl who say whatever case isn't about race hve probably never worked in the criminal justice system. Race and money two greatest influencers
I will never understand how in a case where a 17 yr unarmed is killed there are "supporters" and "cheerleaders" for the defendant.
Unreal. Dunn said he thought they were all thugs and gangsters. And yet he's the one spraying people in cars with bullets. #DunnTrial
The problem w black victims in cases like this is that they are no longer around to prove they were worthy of life. #dunntrial
As I said this am, trials are not about the truth. It's not about what state believe happened. It's about what they can prove in court.
Law&Order #SVU tonight inspired by Trayvon Martin & Paula Deen stories.
Shellie Zimmerman on #Katie & they're discussing GZ being ticking time bomb. What? He already killed a 17yr old. Bomb exploded long time ago
Look at this way: based on Zimmerman's arrest record, unless you're a woman, police officer or black teen, you're perfectly safe around him.
How can u say someone 'got away w murder' when you're on the jury that acquitted him? Its your job to ensure that doesn't happen. B29
B29 says GZ got away w murder but her hands were tied bc of law. The law did not require her to believe GZ's story - which was not credible.
I'll never be too busy for jury service again. For true justice to be served we need diversity of thought, ideas, and experiences on juries.
If people, especially women and children, would stop forcing him to defend himself, this would not keep happening. #georgezimmerman logic
TM's family college educated and present themselves well. Completely contradicts narrative TM some violent street thug. #Zimmermantrial
Jury hanging on ct 1 is not abt the law. Or the evidence. Any1 who credits Dunn's story is not looking at either of those things #DunnTrial
Exactly. RT “@VictorCNN: Why is there so much laughter at this news conference? Agree with the verdict or not - nothing is funny.”
Trials are not a search for truth. It's about a standard of proof. Can state prove their theory in court? Not guilty doesn't mean innocent.
I'm glad POTUS spoke out abt not just the issues of race in our criminal justice system, but his perspective and experience. Context is key.
