Don't the facts matter in this case?

There seems to be a rush to judgment against Zimmerman. Some have suggested that he must be guilty because he had a gun in his pocket and "Trayvon" [we don't call him "George"] was not carrying a weapon. This assumes "Trayvon" knew "George" had a gun in his pocket when, as alleged by the police, and confirmed by the fact of "George's" broken nose, struck "George" and began beating him. If "Trayvon" didn't knew of the gun, he just might have made a fatal mistake.

Some have suggested that this incident was a "stand your ground" law run amok. The facts seem to indicate that "Trayvon" was the one whom stood his ground rather than meekly retreating when confronted by a person on a neighborhood watch.

The Black Panther Party is offering, in their words, a $10,000 dollar bounty for "George." Allegedly, this is for the "capture" of "George," but, since there are no warrants from his arrest it is for the kidnapping of "George." This assumes the "bounty" is not for the murder of "George." In either case, why isn't the Black Panther Party being investigated as a potential "hate crime" by the feds for advocating the kidnapping/murder of a man whom is not Black?

There was a rumor that you had been banned. If so, socks are frowned upon. If not, well fine, carry on, but your signature offends me I must say.

Why is posting an article attempting to expand upon the facts in this case a reason for banning anyone?

How would a "sock" have the same name, and, magically have the same number of total posts?

Don't have a clue. That is beyond my skill set. We will find out one way or the other in due course, so there is no point arguing about it. And I really don't know CaDan (be it this one or the former one, or the same one). He did his thing separate and apart from where I do my thing.

Well, if you are going to speculate as whether, or not, "CaDan" had been "banned" then it would have behooved you to look at the evidence. "CaDan" was posting, and "CaDan" had about the exact number of posts as the previous CaDan.

Whomever started those rumors committed an injustice against the poster, and, you ought to apologize for spreading those rumors.

Did it ever occur to anyone that jumping on a user with repeated references to "troll" other similar attacks might cause such a person to dig their heels in and post in a more abrasive manner than they otherwise would?

If such person felt like being a deliberately abrasive and completely unlikeable jackass, then yes, possibly.

My source is a highly reliable one. No, I won't apologize for spreading the rumor, because I made clear that I was not sure, and that is that. Obviously the "rumor" had wide circulation, and I was not the one who originally brought it up. So it is not as if I let some cat out of the bag. But to be honest with you, for the first time I reported this thread, inquiring as to the poster's status. And then others mentioned it publically here.

But you have a point. If it turns out he was not banned, I think I will apologize to him. Good idea. Thank you.

Once again- I don't know this fella's history. If you say he has been offensive and racist I buy it even though the word racist has been overused here... but what is wrong with him presenting reports on this case?

This country has no trial by media. From everything I have read or heard- Zimmerman deserves to be arrested. I believe that fully...but what is wrong with CaDan presenting a different point of view? If he used the n-word or was otherwise offensive I'd grab my pitchfork and join the mob...but I haven't seen him that way yet- I am new here but I haven't noticed it.

Really, Dan? Have any of us called Klecly or Ben or TJ of any of our other respected very conservative posters trolls?

It's not because you're a poor oh-so-persecuted conservative. It's because you're incapable of posting anything without making it simultaneously aggressively moronic and somehow about yourself.

How is this even controversial? I really don't understand conservatives sometimes.

Most of us aren't saying Zimmerman should be shot on the spot or found guilty without a trial. But the fact that he hasn't even been arrested is just ridiculous... What a stupid law.

According to Nym, he was accidentially unbanned.  The mistake has been rectified.
