That damned Trial

What's Mallard raving about today?

George Zimmerman, The Media

This from someone who recently screamed that the Media just did not scream loud enough about the Right Wing nontroversy over Benghazi.

Can "Mallard's Top New Story of 2012" series be renamed "10 Things that Launched the Sedentary Duck off the Beanbag Chair"?

Memo Pad, microphone, away!

Today's strip can also be recycled into a "Barely Recognizable Faces of Victimhood" series.

The more today's rightwing defends creepy people with guns following boys around on public streets and then killing them, the more it's moral sickness is plain.

At least Zimmerman is getting a trial by jury, which is more than Martin got.

CW in LA said...

Yeah. And what's Brews going to say about the wingnutosphere's convicting the late Mr. Martin of having been a thug who had it coming?

An endorsement, is my guess.

Bill the Splut said...

Oh, will no one think of the poor murderers who slaughter unarmed kids?!

Nice timing, you sack of shit.

Hey, shithead: George Zimmerman DID shoot Trayvon Martin. The trial is to determine if he was justified in doing so. (Hint: He wasn't, and he and his scummy lawyers know it. That's why they've been trying to poison the jury pool by manipulating public perception of Zimmerman and Martin, most recently by filing a lawsuit against NBC for a less-than-honest editing job on Zimmerman's 911 tape -- a matter that was already dealt with months ago when the producer responsible was fired.)

But thanks for reminding us again what kind of person you consider to be worthy of unconditional support.

Let's not forget that part of the reason for the media outcry on this was that Zimmerman initially wasn't even arrested, due to Florida's stand your ground law. That law basically gives you the right to kill someone in a public place if you have "reasonable belief" it's necessary to protect yourself or others (never mind the fact that it was entirely unreasonable to believe Trayvon Martin was going to hurt or kill someone with those Skittles). If it hadn't been for media outcry, Zimmerman probably would never have been arrested or brought to trial. And, of course, the law was brought to us by our friends in the NRA.

Gold-Digging Nanny said...

But sure. It was a media witch hunt, Mallard.

Frank Stone said...

Oh, and hey, Bruce: Let's take a moment to remember THIS little bit of jaw-dropping, brass-balled chutzpah.

THAT'S the kind of person you're defending, Bruce: someone who absolves himself of all responsibility for his own actions by invoking "God's plan". No wonder he's your hero.

And let me just address this in particular, because it's so teeth-grindingly infuriating and illustrates so perfectly just what a mendacious, dissembling piece of filth your little hero is, Bruce:

At the very end of the interview, Zimmerman went back to the question and said, “I do wish there was something, anything I could have done that would have put me in the position where I didn’t have to take his life. And I do want to tell everyone...that I’m sorry that this happened.”

Really? Really, Georgie-boy? You can't think of anything you could have done differently that would have prevented that tragic outcome?

Weeeelll... how about maybe, possibly STAYING IN YOUR FUCKING CAR AND WAITING FOR THE FUCKING COPS LIKE YOU WERE FUCKING TOLD after Trayvon Martin RAN AWAY FROM YOU instead of jumping out of the car and chasing after him like you were Dirty fucking Harry???

Christ. I need to lie down for a minute.

David in NYC said...

I'm still waiting for Wayne LaPierre to point out that the solution to this incident would have been for Trayvon Martin to be packing heat himself.

However, I am not holding my breath.

I hope the more time goes by, the more chance a jury might decide the law shouldn't favor vengeful creeps who think they have a right to kill kids. Real cowboys weren't as bloodthirsty as these dicks.

DiR said...

Uh, no, Bruce: he absolutely shot Treyvon.
Gutless fuckwit.
