“The man "unsuccessfully ran for mayor in 2011." Give these people credit for something. Don't you think some of them would remember him? It wasn't that long ago.
Also, an election for the Community College Board of Trustees. Uh, I am not sure why you people would think this race would galvanize black folks into coming out to vote. This was an off year election for a minor position. They didn't say how many votes were cast, but many of his votes most likely came from engaged voters who know who he is.
I now it may come as a shock to you racist white folks but there are some black people who would vote republican just because he's anti-gay. In other words, these people knew what they were doing, and this single "anti-gay" issue probably got him a lot of votes, and they weren't by accident.”

“How are you defining "racist white folks" in the context of this discussion?”
“She was probably trying to find a good place to dump the body. She couldn't leave it in the trash behind her house; it would be too easy to connect to her. She probably knew she was going to the mall and decided to wait for an opportunity to dispose of it then. With so much traffic there, she probably figured it would be a little harder to trace to her. This was actually a good plan on her part, the execution was just screwed up.”
“It's fine to teach sex education in school. However, most of them do not provid them with contraceptives. You know you want to avoid getting pregnant, but how do you do it? You know there are things that can prevent it, but where do you get those things? This was my problem when I was a teenager in the 80s and I'm sure it's the same today.”
“It was too late for her to have an abortion. If she had a life birth, they could have directed her to a decent adoption agency. You know, they can do that, too? Plus, if she gone to them before (she got pregant), they could have given her contraceptive options that may have prevented this pregancy. But I guess you're against their doing stuff like that too?”
“I did search his name when the story first broke, and if you read the other comments, you would know that I wasn't the only one who couldn't find a picture of this guy. I did see a picture of him the next day when someone provided a link. In other words, I don't need this now. Not sure exactly why I'm just getting it in my inbox three days after the fact, but who cares, story's over.”
“People who complain about people using SNAP benefits to buy junk food should no one thing - It's cheaper than the healthy stuff, so it makes the benefits last longer. Also, noticed this with the groups of people who usually bring food to the streets for the homeless - most of the time it's not the healthy stuff. Notwithstanding the fact that most folks on the streets probably wouldn't eat the healthier stuff, it's cheaper, which makes it easier to feed more people. And yeah, the work requirement - who's going to pay for transportation, training, uniforms, whatever the folks need to perform this work? If they do not want to pay to feed hungry people, it's obvious they will not want to pay the extra expense of transporting, training, etc.”
“Guy must be white. No picture of him attached to any of the stories about this. Just did a search and can't find any. aid the guy was arrested, so they should have a mug shot. Not if he's white.
If anybody can prove me wrong, attach link, please”

“They arrested a guy named Joseph Patterson, aged 27. The guy has a history of domestic abuse. He was the only one home at the time the child was injured. Couldn't find a picture. I'm just curious, if the guy turns out to be black, then what do you have to say?”

“I think he's Asian.
What has that got to do with anything ?”
“Deserving of what? I didn't say she deserved anything. People are calling her a liar because she pled guilty to pejury. Yet, she did it to protect her husband. And how does he pay her back? By spending most nights since he's been free somewhere other than at home with her.”

“"Deserving of what? I didn't say she deserved anything.".......
I never said you did, I was responding to someone elses post, and now that I re read that post I may have read it wrong the first time.”
“Look up his previous domestic battery charge. Also, she left the night of the murder because she was afraid the fight she had with GZimmeram might escalate. So she went to stay with her father. How can you say how she felt, esp. given his history? Also the guy was on Adderall and Temazepam, prescription drugs that cause all kinds of psychological problems;, anxiety, aggressiveness among them.”
“For him. At his and his family's urging. Well, that's what I heard. What did she get out of lying for him - a conviction on her record. He walked away scot free again. See the previous arrests and mysteriously dismissed charges.”

“That may all be true but it still doesnt make her a deserving individual...”
“I don't think "they're set.". Any money he gets will be going to his lawyers. Mark O'Meara says Zimm owes him $1,000,000. O'Meara's legal fees can not be paid for by the state. West and the others also haven't been paid. Before the trial, the lawyers supposedly wanted the free publicity to drum up more clients from a high profile case. She is probably leaving him now while the getting is good because he probably will be broke for a while. He won't be able to work anytime soon. I'm looking forward to the book to see how he will fill it with lies.”

“OH? LOL! You mean, you're really, "... looking forward to the book to see how he will fill it with lies"? Woo Hoo! At the very least then, he won't have to worry about being broke nor having to go to work anytime soon. With an already unknown cash reserve from supporters, money rolling in from the state and support from book sales from you and many others, it's a done deal. Imagine the moola from those (u2?) waiting for the movie! Now, ain't that a barn burner!!”
“No, he was probably cheating before this happened. Why would a married man go visit a woman who is not his wife over 20 times? This came out during the trial, and the woman he was visiting was the woman whose house was broken into. I don't think Shellie knew about all the visits until the trial. And, on the night G Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, Shellie Zimmerman was at her father's house. Why? She said she left because she didn't want the fight they had to escalate into anything. However, he had previously been charged with domestic battery and she is a convicted liar. Therefore, it's possible that's why she left that night - because she was afraid he was going to hit her or he did hit her.”
