Lewis-Polite wins DCSS Teacher of the Year April 17, 2014
No need for a hanky for me. And I just did the very thing 3 days ago that you feel is an invasion of your privacy. I asked a couple of suspicious guys on a golf cart that had been roaming through some vacant properties who they were. Introduced myself and they did the same. I also explained there had been a recent theft in our neighborhood. No problems when people are civil with each other.
We have a neighborhood watch program and this sends a message that they are being watched. They actually thanked me for stopping them and for looking out for our neighborhood. See, there is a difference. It is just YOU have a burr up your bottom about protecting the properties of others if you were considered being someone suspicious. When it comes to protecting our properties, it is our dang business!
No you get killed for being a thug and wanting to fight because you are too ignorant and sensitive to explain your presence. You must have been there to see what happened and have all of the FACTS since you continue to argue in TM's favor. All I have ever said is let the FACTS come out in the trial. But since you have stated you would bash someone's head in just for approaching you, then YOU are the THUG in today's society. Don't bother with the blahs. I did not know I was dealing with a child.
And there you have it straight from MRKIA. This is why we have societal issues. You can not even approach someone to ask a question without being threatened with assault. Now if TM was like MRKIA, then I could see why there was a fight. Just plain meaness!
Like I said VSU, you have been victimized by your own BS and stretching of the TRUTH! Point out to me anywhere I have claimed that GZ is innocent. I have repeatedly said that the FACTS need to come out. This has been in response to those who have been claiming GZ is guilty. There have been too many making illogical statements and conjuring up their own sets of facts, just as you have done with accusing me of "wanting to rule Zimmerman innocent...". You are the one who claimed GZ followed TM. How do you know he did this if as you claim none of us were there to know the true story. Again, you are caught up in your own BS.
So stop with your false accusations and childish claims of this being over my head, and get your FACTS straight!
Mickey, I am glad you woke up in time. I would agree with your assessment in the case you have stated above. I would also encourage being cautious. However, the facts are sketchy in the GZ / TM case. There are too many already jumping on the convict GZ wagon without having all of the FACTS.
And for those who say he should not have tried to see where TM went, this is where I have a different perspective. When the police arrive and ask where is the suspicious person, I would rather say he went between those 2 houses, rather than say I don't know.
VSU says "just because a person done something in the past doesn't make them innocent or guilty in the future". You are getting caught up in your own BS. You can't use an action for one, and not use or consider the past trends and actions of another. You are really stretching on this one VSU.
Is this what you call a double standard. You want to use financial disclosure issues that happened after the event for GZ, but you mention nothing about TM's past use of drugs, being expelled from school, etc. etc, that should also be considered as part of his reputation. Again, just more speculations and illogical thinking!
Another illogical thought process! TRUTH101, If the suspicious person is confronted (assuming he was confronted since you were not there to make this assumed observation), and he has done nothing wrong, why would he "rightfully become combative with me"? This is an assumption that is very disturbing. All he would have to do is explain that he was on his way to ..... So this begs the question, why was there a fight between the two? Again, FACTS are needed and not speculations filled with emotion.
Just as I thought MRKIA. You are one of those who encourages turning their back on crime and letting the thugs take over. You should be thanking people like GZ for having the courage to watch out for his neighborhood to try to prevent crime. Instead you encourage others to be a coward behind the wimps of being blind to those who bully, rob, and beat up on others. You unknowingly pre-judge, and are prejudiced toward anyone with a hoodie by counting them as suspicious without really knowing if they are friendly, or out to steal from others. This is a prime example of being a victim of being locked up in your own surroundings.
Mickey, if you saw someone walking in your neighborhood that you did not know, would you try to meet them, or would you consider them suspicious? If they were not suspicious, are you saying people should not approach others in their neighborhood to introduce themselves to meet new residents? Or, could it be they are suspicious because they are wearing a hoodie and there have been past break-ins by young blacks wearing hoodies?
For all of those saying GZ should not have approached TM, the question is obvioulsy "why not"? Are you showing your prejudices toward another, or are you unknowingly admitting that Treyvon should have been considered suspicious? Why should GZ not try to see where this person was walking to, and why should he have considered Treyvon too dangerous to follow (if that is what he did)? THINK about it.
