But, hey, he was in FL, and he"s black, so, you know, I guess the law says that"s okay.

We need to arm American citizens.Not to fight the bad guys,but to fight the Police.

The additional training the officers will receive is training at the target range. They will not be trained in threat risk management - just trained on how to kill what you are shooting at so as to remove the conflicting account.

lauriloo-"why did they go on and on about the "war of northern aggression" "

History is views through the bias of what side you were on. One side`s `Freedom Fighter` is the other side`s `Terrorist`.

lauriloo-"were openly racist"

Hey, I`ll admit that LA is one of the most racist states in the Union.

I doubt we`d agree on which side the majority of the racism was originating from, though.

Just ask former Mayor Ray `Chocolate City` Nagin.

"What does Louisiana have to do with The South? It may be located NEAR The South, but it is an entity in its own right. It is neither claimed by, associated with nor ANY relation to The South."

Seriously? Then why did they go on and on about the "war of northern aggression" and were openly racist to the point of actually being mad at ME for not being racist enough? I`d call LA more "southern" than Florida in terms of attitude.

Well, that is just horrible. They`re letting just anybody wear a badge these days, apparently. I hope Mr. Middleton gets a BIG settlement, and that he doesn`t have to lose too much of it to the lawyers.

Well, if the police who shot him were Hispanic, like Zimmerman, I`m sure Democrats will call for their immediate execution without trial!

"I found this story ironic on its face."

This? From the guy who keep claiming he`s NOT race-baiting?
O`Really? @SmagBoy1? O`Reilly?

Zimmerman! Not again!....

Oh wait. I see what you did there.

Yeah this is wrong. And no you`re not allowed to shoot black people as much as Smagboy1 wishes it to be true by stating it constantly.

"Originally disseminated by another I-A-B member in a Zimmerman-related posting - I just can`t find which one."

That was me Here, but I saw it in the live submissions submitted by some one else almost a week ago:
Is this the black Zimmerman?

The description for this post could have just as easily been replaced with "But hey, he was in NY, and he was white, so you know, I guess it couldn`t possibly have been a hate-crime" if the following article had been the subject of smaggy`s submission:

What if Trayvon had been White?

Andrew, I`m not getting into a pissing war with you over who`s lived a more quintessential FL life. I don`t care enough about this story for that and I was only pointing out that you don`t need to lecture me on FL life.

I found this story ironic on its face. But you`re right, if I wanted to troll around the `net, I could find stuff like this every day. You`re also right that I throw bombs. I see it as giving as good as I get in that I speak out against discrimination when I see it. I try to be witty about it, I try to do it with a bit of pointed humor, but I *do* do it. Guilty as charged. You know what you won`t see me doing? Making fun of people`s names. Making points that I don`t have lots of information to back up (even if you disagree with me, you can`t say that I`m just pulling stuff out of my ass), etc. So, you can call me names all you want. I`ll keep submitting what I think are pointedly witty and thought-provoking posts. I guess we`ll just have to live tha

I graduated from two colleges in Florida and lived in Tampa, Gainesville, and Orlando. It`s not like I`m some tourist. It`s really not any different than any other place. It`s just that when Drew Peterson keeps losing his wives, nobody says, "We need to get rid of Illinois" and there are no tired, overused internet jokes.

But you really could not be more full of it. Don`t hide behind things by saying it`s all in jest. That`s not even true. You`re a bomb thrower. Evidence: Your descriptions in all of your submittals.

Okay, MeGrendel, if the person is armed and close enough that the lunge could put that weapon in contact with you, sure. I won`t dispute that. That`s a whole other story, though, yes?

MeGrendel, I was kidding. Please, man.

Andrew, I grew up in FL. Lived there almost my whole life and I`m just a wee bit older than you, so I`m guessing I`ve spent more time there than you. Too, I`ll say the same to you as I said to MeGrendel: lighten up. I mean, dang, joke must have struck a little close to home if it got you so butthurt so easily.

SmagBoy1-"Is a lunge worth someone`s life?"

A person`s life is worth what he`s willing to put it up for.

From the story so far, I think these cops should be fired and prosecuted.

But, to answer your question, it depends on the lunge.

If someone is lunging to throw me into a pool, no.

If someone is lunging at me with a knife, lug-wrench or blunt object, his life is forfeit. So yes it is.

This is also totally emblematic of the ultra short attention span of the information age. With over 7 billion people and 300 million Americans, there is a limitless source of stories out there. There are enough stories of injustice from any angle to saturate anyone`s mind. You just have to scour the internet and assemble a collection of which stories fit your narrative. This is how we can focus on one or two murders for 2 years and ignore the other 10,000 each year. This is how we can cover a missing girl incessantly, but ignore the other thousands. Congratulations, SmugMan, you are emblematic of this new trend. You are completely predictable and un-unique.

Lauriloo, the Southern US is the fastest growing and most up and coming region of the nation, while cesspool and former centers of American prosperity like Chicago and Detroit decay. But I guess you would be happy to get rid of most of the minorities (the South is also the most diverse region of the country). Why don`t you be a little more tolerant? Stop dividing us all into little groups, you`re being weird.

I live in Florida and I can honestly say that the people are a thousand times more normal than anyone in New York, where I also have lived.

SmagBoy1-"he`s black, so, you know, I guess the law says that`s okay."

Please quote the law, federal or florida, that states that it`s `okay` to shoot someone based on skin color.

SmagBoy1-" Just stating the law as I understand it."

Obviously you don`t understand law. Nor did you state a law. But we`ll wait while you look up the supporting law or regulation.

Yeah, even if he *did* lunge at them, which I don`t believe, either, I don`t think that justifies deadly force. I mean, holy crap! Is a lunge worth someone`s life? There were two cops, one unarmed dude. Dang. :-(

This might be hard to believe, but I`m thinking the cops aren`t telling the true story here. Doesn`t make sense to me that he would just lunge at them.

Okay, say` I`m a crazy ass cracker, a dumb conservatard, but I don`t trust the cops at all.

if only there was a giant rubber band we could wrap around Florida so it would just rot and fall off into the ocean. Can we just sell the entire southern part of the US to Mexico and be rid of it??
