    Is that the way trials go with lesser charges added on after the defense rests? It sounds as if there are going to be endless trials on this issue.

    Child Abuse is raising a thug and not dealing with it before hand. Proverbs 19:18

    Thug---the new "N" word. Clandestine prejudice at its best. Odd how in the many conversations to be had on this board, you don't see much if any references to white people as thugs or gangsters.

    Zaac, that's uncalled for. Try to say something intelligent, for a change. Or switch your name to Al Sharpton, because you are no more thoughtful than him.

    You just kind of make stuff up as you go along. The word "thug" or "thugs" gets used on this board more often to describe union members who harass people who oppose them. Most of those are white. So your little white guilt mentality is only hurting your credibility as you make false claims like this that are obviously wrong.

    Besides, the judge ruled against a third degree murder charge. On the other hand, she appears to be a thug, herself.

    Yeah, I am wondering if this will be her last case? This has to be one of the strangest cases in American jurisprudence. Even uber liberal Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said that the charges were incorrect.

    I agree. Also, it appears to me that the judge is doing all she can to see that Zimmerman will be found guilty of something and do some jail time.

    She seems more concerned about public sentiment than she does in justice.

    Is it okay to call Hispanics cowards?

    Actually, you’ve put your foot in your mouth here, Zaac.

    I know I shouldn’t take my time to do this, but I can't walk away from this statement and let it go unchallenged. The accusation of racism against JK was uncalled for. So I’m going have to call you out on this.

    It took all of 15 seconds to go to Google and type in...

    “site:baptistboard.com thug”

    ...and see EXACTLY how many times over the years the word “thug” has been used on the BB and in what context – racially, politically, or otherwise.

    Here’s how the word “thug” has been used and against whom it has been used over the years at the BB. If you’ll note, the word has been used overwhelmingly against white men and Arab men.


    • Thug used in once in relation to Martin being a marijuana user, once his violent prowess and once to describe his lifestyle, but not his color. (black man)

      [*]July 2013 – John Calvin. (white man)


      [*]March 2013 – Hugo Chavez (Venezuelan man)


      [*]December 2012 - Tony Camargo (white), Chris Opalewiski (white), and one other unidentified white man who from Michigan who attacked a news crew member at a union rally.


      [*]July 2012 - President Obama in his “Chicago style political actions”. (black man)


      [*]May 2012 - Lyndon B. Johnson’s entire political career. (white man)


      [*]June 2011 – a nameless white boy arrested in connection to harassing a Muslim girl at his school.


      [*]June 11 - Congressman Anthony Weiner. (white man)


      [*]March 2011 - Muammar Gaddafi terrorist behavior. (Arab man)


      [*]April 2010 - “Street thug” (implying street fighter) used to describe President Obama’s actions in inviting hecklers from an audience to join him on stage after they heckled him. (black man)


      [*]February 2010 – Dr. Ergun Caner, President, Liberty Theological Seminary


      [*]November 2009 - union boss, Nick Balzano. (Italian-American man)


      [*]November 2009 - “Thug-like” tactics used to describe IRS. (predominately white members of a predominately white government)


      [*]August 2007 – Republicans referred to as “Re-thug-licans”


      [*]June 2007 - Taliban suicide bomber in recruitment of small children to do his dirty work. (Arab man)


      [*]April 2007 – M. Amhadinejab (Arab man)


      [*]January 2007 – Fidel Castro (Cuban man).


      [*]July 2005 - member of the Iraqi secret police who tortured people. (Iraqi man)


      [*]June 2005 – Karl Rove (white man)


      [*]November 2004 - Ron Artest in his responsibility for the infamous“bar-room brawl” instigation at a basketball game. (black man)


      [*]November 2004 – Osama Bin Laden (Arab man)


      [*]July 2003 – Yasser Arafat (Arab man)


      [*]July 2002 - Dr. Ian Paisley (white man)
    The ONLY reference I could not find on the BB was in referring to a female as thug.

    So, Zaac, if you feel like calling me a thug right now, go ahead. I can take and I'll proudly represent the female thugs of the BB. :saint:

    Thanks, Scarlet O. I think that I am the one that called Hugo Chavez a thug.

    Some lawyer on Lou Dobbs said that it not unusual for charges to be changed at the end of the trial.

    Thanks sister Scarlett O for answering him according to his folly, lest he will be wise in his own eyes. :wavey:

    As I understand Florida law (I'm not a lawyer nor a Floridian), the jury can only bring back a gulity verdict on the charges with which they are sent into the jury room. So, if the judge hadn't added this last charge, they could not have considered it. And the blow back to that would be considerable. Now, the jury can come back with an acquital on all (possible) charges.

    What's uncalled for is so called Christians constantly trying to slight the young man by calling him a thug. If you don't like me pointing it out, then stop doing it.

    If you're using it in place of another popular prejorative, sure isn't.

    Scarlett hush. :laugh:You didn't see anywhere in my post that I called JK a racist. You just wanted to show us you could do a search.:applause: 12 out of 23 references to people of color.

    Did your search show the number of times since the beginning of this year folks on this board have referred to Trayvon as a thug, or does that not get included in your number? You've shown threads, and the number of threads has nothing to do with the time in the thread.

    Zaac, are you deliberately acting ignorant, or are you just being a Internet thug?
