Quote# 88563

Earlier tonight, George Zimmerman gave his first televised interview to Sean Hannity on Fox News. Zimmerman offered an apology of sorts to Martin's parents, but refused to express regret for what happened. He also gave his account of Martin's killing.

The apology came at the end of the interview, with Zimmerman telling Hannity what he'd say to Martin's family.


"I would tell them again that I'm sorry. I am sorry they buried their child. I can't imagine what it must feel like, and I pray for them daily."

Despite the apology, Zimmerman made it clear that he didn't regret any of his actions, because it was all divinely pre-ordained. "It was all God's plan, and for me to second guess it or judge it...," he said before trailing off. When Hannity asked if there was anything he'd do differently in retrospect, Zimmerman answered, "No, sir." Later he added, "I do wish there was something, anything, I could have done that wouldn't have put me in the position where I had to take his life." Earlier in the interview, Zimmerman defended having a gun on him, noting that he always carried one unless he was at work.

You could have chosen not to get out of your car and stalk him, for starters.

If he goes free I'm pretty sure we can expect more rioting like the Rodney King riots.

When reading things like this do any other guys find themselves subconsciously crossing their legs?

People who think they know 'Gods plan', and believe that they are an instrument of god, and do horrible thing because of it, or to try and justify their horrible action by stating that it's all 'gods plan'are delusional, and need therapy. Lots and lots of therapy.

When a man with a gun sees himself as an instrument of God's will, he had better be locked up for the public safety. It doesn't matter if they put him in the Plain Big House or the Quilted Big House, so long as he never gets out.

It's gods divinely pre ordained plan for you to drop the soap in front of Bubba.

"I do wish there was something, anything, I could have done that wouldn't have put me in the position where I had to take his life."

Like, uhh, simply walking away?

Oh My Dog!

Oh My Dog!

"I do wish there was something, anything, I could have done that wouldn't have put me in the position where I had to take his life."

Maybe if you had not followed him like the dispatcher advised.

7/26/2012 5:35:31 AM

Oh My Dog!

triple post

sorry

The bolding is really in the wrong part.

"I do wish there was something, anything, I could have done that wouldn't have put me in the position where I had to take his life."

Really? Like, maybe doing what the police told him to do, and not confront the kid? Something like that?

Doubting Thomas

It was all God's plan

Oh in that case we should let him out of jail and forget all about it.

"I do wish there was something, anything, I could have done that wouldn't have put me in the position where I had to take his life."

You could have stayed in your fucking car like the dispatcher said to do instead of following that kid around. Then he'd still be alive and you'd be out of jail.

You didn't *have* to take his life you fucking nutjob. You stalked him, you approached him, you were armed, you instigated the entire, damn, ordeal.

This is *your* fault.

I thought these Conservative folks were supposed to be all about personal responsibility?

Isn't there a commandment about not killing, you fundie sack of shit? Or don't black people count?

Later he added, "I do wish there was something, anything, I could have done that wouldn't have put me in the position where I had to take his life."

You got out of your truck and followed him, you idiot.

"It was all God's plan, and for me to second guess it or judge it...,"

...would have prevented any of this shit from happening.

What a freaking moron!

I feel like God has an incredibly disjointed plan.

Oh well if God told you to do it then it must be fine. Damn courts ignoring the word of God! Oh by the way, God told me to steal your stuff and punch you in the face. I wish I didn't have to steal (though I kind of like the idea of punching you; hey, the Bible does say that the Lord will provide) but it was ordained by God. What can I do?

@shykid

I thought these Conservative folks were supposed to be all about personal responsibility?

Only when it comes to denying others health insurance and welfare money. If it affects THEM then suddenly all bets are off.

@Chilly

I feel like God has an incredibly disjointed plan.

I know, I know. The plan of God may seem chaotic to the point that it resembles absolute randomness but remember, this is the same God that turns water into wine. He might simply be drunk off his ass like my namesake.

"Zimmerman made it clear that he didn't regret any of his actions, because it was all divinely pre-ordained. "It was all God's plan, and for me to second guess it or judge it...,"

Reminds me of two things:

1- A scene from an episode of "Road Wars", in which a man in North Carolina - with his pickup - smashed up two patrol cars in the parking lot of a police station. After being arrested and restrained on the ground, when asked by officers why he'd done this, his reply...?:



2- A quote by John Goodman ('Agent Keenan') from the film "Red State" (emphasis added)

'People just do the strangest things, when they believe that they're entitled. But they do even stranger things when they just plain believe.'

I've said it before, but bears repeating: Right-wing Fundamentalist Christianity represents a clear and present danger to normal, decent, civilised, democratic society; more so than Al-Qaeda. I don't want to say 'I told you so', but I told you so.

Timothy McVeigh. Scott Roeder. George Zimmerman. When religious 'beliefs' causes one to commit murder, then you are a terrorist. There's nothing different between them and Al-Qaeda.

It happened, ergo it was God's plan.

Thank you for playing Excuse-O-Rama! Judges? What do you say?

(Loud buzzer) Oh sorry! Our judges say, "You're a murdering lunatic, and your excuse sucks ass!"

Well, better luck next time, here's our consolation prize, a Dr. Kevorkian Home Suicide kit! Have fun!

Lock him up. George is a sick fuck

It was God's plan for you to shoot the kid?

7/26/2012 8:01:10 AM

Meeeh

Mr. Zimmerman!

Please hand over, to the court, your copy of God's plan. Your Honor, the People want to admit God's plan as exhibit 1392-A!
