    Re: Hit rating.

    I did NOT call for violence at all.

    I merely said what most people would feel if the Justice System so seriously fails a murder victim.

    That IF a family member, reacted to such a failure of justice by taking the law into their own hands.... I, on their jury, would vote to acquit.... as is MY RIGHT under the US Constitution, known as freedom of speech.

    This does not CALL for anything, but is a cautionary statement as to WHY it is so important that the Justice System actually does it's job. Competently.

    Because if the rule of law and justice clearly does not exist, there will be anarchy... as history attests.

    That does NOT IN ANY WAY incite or call for violence against Zimmerman, and most certainly does not even reference...  the Judge.

      many people's minds that gave you the HR. That said, I suspected that it may have been an attempt at some dark humor or irony and I'm willing to take off my HR (not that it will make a difference) if you explain what you meant clearly without coming across as promoting violence.

      comprehension" and

      I think I comprehended correctly the first time. There's no "If" in this statement:

      Ok, now that justice has been undermined, here is my proclamation. The family of Trayvon are free to just kill this asshole,
      While there is an "If" in the next statement, the unwritten "Then" still calls for violence
      If the justice system refuses to work and do it's job... 2nd amendment remedies are approved.
      How is it different from those calling for "second amendment remedies" IF the country votes the "wrong" way, ACA passes, etc.

    •  Hmmm (6+ / 0-)

      I'm not sure anyone who writes this sentence...

      ...You people have a serious lack reading...
      ... comprehension.
      ...has any room criticising anyone on reading comprhehension.

      Moreover, nice try, but there's not a lot of wiggle room in this:

      Ok, now that justice has been undermined, here is my proclamation. The family of Trayvon are free to just kill this asshole, I will vote to ACQUIT them period
      It wasn't a question. There was no "if" fact, you called it a "proclamation."  I won't even get into how wrong on the facts and law the rest of your ignorant comment was.

      What you wrote was reprehensible, and if it were up to me you'd be banned.
