So Zimmerman still has a "perfect self defense claim" as the prosecution had to prove that he instigated the attack, this may very well have happened Zimmerman could have followed the teen yelled racist slurs etc.. but there was no proof.

I doubt 2nd degree murder could have ever been convicted with the requirement to prove malice, a beter prosecution and witness pool could have had Zimmerman convicted of manslaugter. The jury has stated that 1 thought it could be murder and 3 others manslaugter until they reviewed what the law stated.

Remember the saying in the american legal system, better 100 criminals go free then have one inocent main imprisioned.

Viti, I think alot of the trial stems from what the law states, and the term burden of proof. so for 2nd degree murder they had to prove.

■A killing done impulsively without premeditation, but with malice aforethought
■A killing that results from an act intended to cause serious bodily harm
■A killing that results from an act that demonstrates the perpetrators depraved indifference to human life
 

Very hard to prove malice as zimmerman never took the stand, likely why the defense decided to not have him testify after the defense's main witness failed to provide much proof, and many maid fun of her manner of speaking.

while a self defense claim typically must show the following, note the retreat provision is not required in florida, and the defense could have gone to a trial for the STAND YOUR GROUND law.

■The defendant was not in a place they were prohibited from entering.
■The defendant cannot be at fault in the situation.
■The defendant was not the aggressor or instigator.
■The defendant had a reasonable fear of death or great bodily harm that required the use of force.
■The defendant fulfilled the requirement to retreat from the threat or attempt to avoid danger.
 

of the above the 3rd is the only likely one going against Zimmerman, but again the burden of proof does not Prove Zimmerman as being the instigator.

As for manslaugter Federal law defines voluntary manslaughter as the unlawful killing of a human being without malice [u]pon a sudden quarrel or heat of passion., self defense is still allowed as a defense in manslaugter.

Self-Defense
Self-defense defenses against a voluntary manslaughter charge work slightly differently than they would for a murder charge. When defendants raise self-defense in a murder case, the type of self-defense they claim can be either perfect or imperfect.

A perfect claim of self-defense occurs when there is a reasonable need for deadly force to protect ones life and involves no wrongdoing on the part of the defendant. An imperfect self-defense claim involves an unreasonable belief that deadly force is necessary, some bad behavior on the part of the defendant, or both.

For example, if the defendant was the aggressor in the situation, but still had to use deadly force to protect their life, the claim of self-defense is imperfect.

In a murder case, a successful perfect self-defense claim will result in an acquittal; an imperfect claim will usually result in a reduction to a manslaughter charge.

In a manslaughter case, the only type of self-defense claim available is a perfect self-defense claim. An imperfect self-defense claim in effect is an admission that the defendant did in fact commit voluntary manslaughter.

 

What Makes a Zombie a Zombie? (Article) - 6/28/2013 7:52:13 AM

Lack of control, a mindless or driven nature, I liked WWZ for the ant like nature, and I am fine with the running zombie, but some of the jumps etc.. do go into the "zombie tiger" realm. It seams to me alot of it depends on who the villan is, most slow zombie flicks the villian is what the survivers become, and fast zombie movies sometimes shy away from it.  I really enjoyed the zombies in The Last of Us, they were faster than many but the story was still about the survivors, heck even Warm bodies brought something to the table with a reason that the zombies liked brains.

So I don't have a real prefference just want a good movie and a story with a little bite in it.

No Carrey to Promote Kick-Ass 2 (Article) - 6/25/2013 9:23:14 AM

Yep this movie will caude just as much violence as MR poppers caused people to adopt / kidnap penguins.

DC Comics Gay Character Revealed (Article) - 6/24/2013 9:23:32 AM

So now that the WWZ add is gone and I can post, took the Kids to see MU this weekend and had a good time, much beter than cars and it was a nice story. That being said yes with all the super hero hype going around where is the part 2 maniacs want.

Mania Box Office Report: Monsters VS. Zombies (Article) - 6/24/2013 9:17:32 AM

It's been a good summer for flicks so far, enjoyed MOS holes and all, hopefuly the box office numbers leads to a JL movie. Now you see me was a fun flick. Monstars suprised me and lifted my hopes for Finding Dory as this was a prequal not quite on par with Toy Story but heads and shoulders above cars. (still wont sell as much merchandise I admit)

Wise I agree with someone needing to do either a Namor or Aquaman whoever does it first may have a big lead but I think we need WW too.  Is the next Avatar still looking to be a water bassed plot, perhaps that or the next nemo will stir the pot and get someone to realise that the ocean could be done beautifuly and over some great scenes.

well over 10, now we can rename this article welcome to Mania so a few more people will poke their head in.

The ending could have been okay a few movies down the line, you start with him "helping on his own terms" his teenage angst of killing a big rig of a guy he didn't like etc.. and a movie or two later after watching Zod personnaly kill a human or 2 and it may have felt justified. but the battle carnage did not work for me, even the hulk takes most fights out of the city.

DC Comics Gay Character Revealed (Article) - 6/14/2013 8:55:02 AM

So the late showing (or is it early) of MOS was packed out, was a good not great flick that the audience seemed to like. Did get a little long in the tooth, nice action, but perhaps too much of it. Will wait to talk more about it and what I thought of it till later when the spoilers have allready been let out of the bag.
