Three of the Amendments


Specifically at play here. We’re speaking of the Do(I)J and their plan to attack Zimmerman, even though a jury of his peers has found him innocent.

Amendment 5 – Trial and Punishment, Compensation for Takings.

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Amendment 6 – Right to Speedy Trial, Confrontation of Witnesses.

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

Amendment 7 – Trial by Jury in Civil Cases.

In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

These apply, all three of them, each in it’s own way. Let us discuss, now that I’ve brought it up.

Be warned, regime. Karma can be a real bitch.

    Seemed just the correct three in this case. Second Amendment may come into the mix soon enough.

    I never knew sick them up was a right or an amendment? Is that in black and white too?

    I said this a little while ago. Both sides had ample opportunity to “choose” who would serve on the jury. IF the jury pool wasn’t large enough, they could have filed another pleading for others.
    Each side had an opportunity to question the jury pool and decide to reject or accept each one.
    Double Jeopardy is in play here; and unless they find NEW charges….IF they follow the laws, this is not going to fly.

    Are you a true racists? When you use the term “pool” be it a jury or not, they believe and think you said “the nigger pool” white woman! Woman when are you going think like them and stop thinking they are treatable, tameable or even logical, really?

    Poet….I didn’t even think like that at all.
    Yes, I do understand…they, as a population haven’t evolved at all.
    Sad, My old dad was right.

    Have no fear!

    You are obliviously a daughter of the American Revolution, my dear.

    I was really hoping we could do this peacefully.

    Oooo, Poet, at Christmas and other holidays, we drove from Ft. Worth, TX to up around Sherman/Denison TX. The adults sat around a Pot Belly stove (No! I am serious..that was the heat source). My cousins and I would sit quietly at the top of the stairs listening to their tales of our history from the Civil War and on to the days when the slaves were set free and GIVEN Land; livestock, chickens, etc.
    I didn’t find out until I was in my 40’s that two brothers (twins) fought i the Civil War. One of the fought for the North and the other for the south. It was a terrible scandal in the family. They both survived the war and lived together after it was over; and it was never spoken of again.
    I had a very heavy belief system taught to me from the time I can remember; and there ain’t no changin’ it!

    Poet, there are many, many of us…we are just getting older. I did my very best to pass it all down to my daughter…Lord! Sometimes I thought, someone musta switched the babies on me in the hospital! LOL

    Poet, I am VERY hard-headed about my belief system; and I WILL NEVER change my mind.
    LOL…You’ll get a bang out of this. I began my college career late in life. I guess I was around 52 when I was sitting in a Speech class at a Community College in Dallas, TX.
    The professor gave us a very strange but important task.
    First he ask us to choose the subject matter; and of course, I chose the Civil War.
    He told me to debate the “North’s position vs. the South.”
    I did try. I really did try. I thought, “well, maybe there is something I missed about the Civil War.” I spent all afternoon in the library the night before the debate.

    I knew I was going to flunk. When It was my turn, I stood up and gave my lecture in DEFENSE OF THE SOUTH (not the right assignment for me. I was to argue for the NORTH).
    When I finished, he asked, “Can’t you think of something the North did that was valid?

    I searched and searched in my heart. I stood there and finally said, “Not a GD thing!”
    I got a “B”. LOL

    That is funny, and you are right, the north did nothing right. The old Wall St. barons wanted all the profits from lumber to cotton, sea food everything and when the south found European buyers for their goods, the north and their mass media of the day (you know the type) made up all kind of fictional stories, still in print to this day, for a very un-Civil War.

  16. 07/17/2013 09:00’d never know it now, but I had a Belly Dance Studio and taught in several churches, and a community college. I was hired to dance for a birthday party at an old Cotton Mansion in Louisiana. I flew there but hitched a ride back to Dallas with someone I knew.

    There was a very strange happening. We were driving through an area in Louisiana and the tears began running down my face. My “physical heart” hurt as though it was breaking. I muttered to the driver, “I don’t know why I am so sad. What is wrong?”

    He told me that we were driving across the grounds that was soaked in the blood of the Confederates. Most of them died there or were horribly wounded…losing arms and legs.

    I have never felt sadness and grief fill my entire being before that day. The ghosts of Our Confederates seem to still haunt that area.

    A few years ago, I bought the movie “In the Electric Mist” with Tommy Lee Jones. The movie was about a modern day crime but had a scene in it explaining the anguish, pain and tears of the South.

    Odd, I did not cry but wow there was grief still in the air at the site, it was in the early nineties. I think we talked about this before?

    I wrote this one.

    Civil War Cemeteries

    Follow me across the plains
    the pools and streams of blood
    souls laid dying, North and South
    Where living stones erected to them
    and poor mother’s cry for her children
    their husbands, brothers and old friends.
    Soldiers laid to rest they kissed goodbye.

    The President said, “We fight side by side”
    and here they lay brother to brother eternally.
    The Civil War, the deadliest war, needlessly:
    Appomattox, Gettysburg, Savannah, Shiloh
    Richmond, Atlanta too, the names you hear.

    Wherever they fell, they lay, men of war
    they’re called casualties etched in stone
    their bravery, their life ended for them.
    Know, the United States of America
    salutes and remembers its soldiers
    in civil ceremony Veteran’s Day.

    That choked me up. Beautiful depth.

  19. 07/17/2013 19:55

    As I recall, wasn’t the War of Northern Aggression pretty much to the effect of destroying the 10A? It CERTAINLY was in direct violation of it.

    Ooo, Poet, that was beautiful and painful at the same time. Thank you for sharing that.
