  1. that is so true. it’s like defending yourself as the victim.

  2. Considering the LINGUISTIC and the tenacity of the laws in the CONTEXT of the objective pleadings attorneys CHOOSE to address, unless that is explored and disallow CONVENIENT CHANGES for the pure goal of usurping the value, Title VII will NEVER serve as a tool/standard of civil rights! It serves little or no purpose in the question of ‘RACE’ because people have accepted socially that human is not the initial definition! However when the term was introduced into the law, such was not the case and that’s why the courts CAN’T and WON’T rule in favor of race if COLOR DISCRIMINATION is not in the pleading for the jury and judge! Had color discrimination been put in the pleading and the prosecution lawyer not allowed it to be struck from that pleading, the verdict would have been different!

    As it stands this verdict was a coupe for the STAND YOUR GROUND LAW as well as for the sanction of guns!

    If every lawyer who opposed the verdict or wants a political career beyond lawyer doesn’t pick up this banner for JUSTICE, then they can only be seen as a purveyor for the unjust !!!!!
