LOL Fuck this shitty country, because budget-ass-Batman George Zimmerman, who stalked and murdered a teenager for the crime of existing while black has been found not guilty by a jury of his peers. His peers being another group of easily scared racists, which, since a jury is supposed to represent the general populace, have to sort of be commended for their jobs. Congratulations, you were American as fuck.
The jury, which had been sequestered since June 24, deliberated 16 hours and 20 minutes over two days. The six female jurors entered the quiet, tense courtroom, several looking exhausted, their faces drawn and grim. After the verdict was read, each assented, one by one, and quietly, their agreement with the verdict. NYT.
All of which is great news for anyone who ever wondered what it might’ve been like to experience the OJ Simpson trial and the Rodney King beatings in the age of social media, because you’re about to see it firsthand.
Maybe he didn’t do it, this one racist friend of mine who I didn’t know was racist until just now said on Facebook. How do you know? I guess I don’t, for sure, aside from the fact that Zimmerman stalked, confronted, and subsequently murdered a human being. I mean, I guess it’s possible, technically speaking, legal-wise, that he didn’t commit for realsies murder, so it’s cool that he walks. Real murder is when it’s a black guy doing it. Assuming Zimmerman isn’t guilty, by the way, doesnt necessarily make one racist, but, coincidentally, 100% of racists think that so go fuck yourself racist
Supporters of Trayvon Martin are taking solace that Mr. Soon-To-Be-Living-The-Rest-of-His-Short-Ass-Life-In-Agonizing-Pain Murderer here is likely to be killed, or at the very least, unable to show his face in public ever again, but no. No. No to that. That’s exactly the type of vigilante justice we’re mad about in the first place here. There’s a reason why they call it the justice system. It’s because we expect it to dispense justice. As much as these backwards-ass gun rights nuts and racist yokels want to drag the country back into the mythical Old West, we do not want to live in a world that celebrates people taking the law into their own hands. That’s the culture from which Zimmerman himself sprung. A brutal, violence-worshipping culture that right-thinking people don’t want any part of.
