It’s dismaying and depressing how so many of these myths are still prevalent. Zimmerman Trial Myth Busters: Did Zimmerman disobey police orders to stay in car?

Zimmerman Libel Suit thrown out – because the libel made him famous
This is from the “you’ve got to be kidding me” files. George Zimmerman’s lawsuit against NBC came up recently, and the same judge that appeared to be so biased against him during his criminal trial proved it by throwing out what is really a slam-dunk case. In the audio played repeatedly by NBC on the… Continue reading Zimmerman Libel Suit thrown out – because the libel made him famous

Part 1 is here, covering the disaster that was the prosecution case.

Zimmerman NOT GUILTY
Legal Insurrection reports in the last few minutes that the jury has come back with a “not guilty” verdict. Given the evidence, this is by far and away the only verdict that could be described as justice.

Idiot/Savant – “those poor, poor, cheats”
Compare and contrast people: First, tax cheats are bad people. Tax cheats steal from us all. Every dollar they save in tax from these tricks is a dollar we have to pay, borrow, or cut – a dollar we don’t get to spend on schools, hospitals and state houses. The government should make these companies… Continue reading Idiot/Savant – “those poor, poor, cheats”
Obamacare – not out of the woodwork yet
Patterico reports that the shenanigans that were used to a) pass the Obamacare bill and b) get it through the supreme court are about to collide.

Madeleine Flannagan, Lawyer, and Jacqueline Sperling, Blogger. What’s the big deal?
Jacqueline Sperling has a special place in her heart for a lawyer named Madeleine Flannagan. As I’ve noted previously, she’s blogged obsessively about the dispute she created with her, and has produced as part of that obsession a screed of lies and harassment that is pretty hard to brush under the carpet. But it seems in all this that… Continue reading Madeleine Flannagan, Lawyer, and Jacqueline Sperling, Blogger. What’s the big deal?
Did Sperling Genuinely try to Settle with Madeleine Flannagan and Ms Brown? Part 1.
I have noted previously that Jacqueline Sperling tried (and continues to try) to ruin the life of lawyer Madeleine Flannagan, for having the temerity to request she stop harassing and defaming in her spare time. Back in May, Sperling wrote this in one of her posts just before the court hearing (which she did not attend): Twice… Continue reading Did Sperling Genuinely try to Settle with Madeleine Flannagan and Ms Brown?

When does the harassment stop?
One day there was a blogger. This blogger had a habit of saying nasty things about people and had been taken to court several times already*. One day, that blogger decided, “I know, I’ll taught my friend who recently decided to attempt suicide.” So she did, and was really quite nasty. Well, that friend had a… Continue reading When does the harassment stop?
