      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

Bond Hearing Number Two

47 posts in this topic

A Second Bond Hearing is set for Friday, for George Zimmerman. Atty asks for similar bond conditions to the first bond, revoked when it was learned that Zimmerman had a lot more money than his wife let-on. Yeah he has money now, but it has been moved to where he lacks access to it.

 

Should he get bail again? Why or why not?

 

 

I say yeah, he's not a flight risk without access to the funds. Hike the bond up a bit and let him loose with same conditions of monitoring.

The guy does not appear to be a flight risk, nor serious danger to society at this point. Bail is appropriate.

So - who's the spokesman for the outraged masses, and how does the DA contact this person to see whether or not the decision is OK?

O'Mara is Zimmermans lawyer. His decision not to pursue could have been influenced by a number of things. One of which might be a desire to let things cool down a tad before the religious figures show up in town demanding vengeance.

Understood, sir - but, I kinda figured that the DA/Special Prosecutor would need to consult the masses before deciding on this.

 

On a tangent - I wonder whether Jail is cheaper for Zimmerman than paying for someplace to hide.

The masses seem to have quieted down quite a bit, since the case made its way into the courts. One might posit that the masses just wanted the case in front of a jury.

I say no he is a deceitful liar, and after all the young innocent teenager he killed can't leave his grave.

Probably true. Though i think the real culprit was the concealed weapon permit he had. That nimrod should never had one. Come to think of it other than off duty law enforcement no one should.

If that's the rationale, I guess we can fire a lot of DAs and just do phone polls.

A day after killing Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman passed a police lie detector test when asked if he confronted the teenager and whether he feared for his life “when you shot zimmermangnew.jpgthe guy,” according to documents released today by Florida prosecutors.

 

According to a “confidential report” prepared by the Sanford Police Department, Zimmerman, 28, willingly submitted to a computer voice stress analyzer (CVSA) “truth verification” on February 27. Investigators concluded that he “has told substantially the complete truth in regards to this examination.”

 

Zimmerman, the report noted, “was classified as No Deception Indicated (NDI).”

 

Along with questions about whether his first name was George and if it was Monday, Zimmerman was asked, “Did you confront the guy you shot?’ He answered, “No.” He was also asked, “Were you in fear for your life, when you shot the guy.” Zimmerman replied, “Yes.”

 

Before the CVSA test, Zimmerman--who was apparently not accompanied by legal counsel--signed a Sanford Police Department release stating that he was undergoing the examination “voluntarily, without duress, coercion, threat or promise.”

 

The lie detector test was requested by Chris Serino, a homicide investigator with the Sanford Police Department

They should of asked him if he was a racist white guy, hell bent on stopping assholes from getting away.

of course, it's good to have some time served it you are going to get a minor charge guilty and sentenced to time served.

Should he get bail again? Why or why not?

 

 

A depraved individual who commits imminently dangerous acts should not be let out, period. If that's what he is, that answers the question...

 

Here's what the prosecution has to show, from 782.04(2), Florida Statutes.

 

The unlawful killing of a human being, when perpetrated by any act imminently dangerous to another and evincing a depraved mind regardless of human life, although without any premeditated design to effect the death of any particular individual

 

I see three elements. Unlawful killing, imminently dangerous act, depraved mind.

Is there something inaccurate there?

 

How do the elements of the crime charged effect whether or not the defendant should get bail in this case?

Sorry, forgot to answer your questions.

 

No, I see nothing inaccurate.

 

If the charges are accurate, that means that he might identify another asshole who was about to get away and gun him down in cold blood once again. We don't need that kind of person out on bail.

 

Soon the reptile will be along to agree with me, so you'll know for sure I'm right. ;)

If, and that's a big if, he passed a mental health screening, then bail might be in order. Based on the interviews and some other stuff, I fear the guy could be unstable...

NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 23: Elmo is seen in Times Square on March 23, 2012 in New York City. (Photo by Andrew Burton/Getty Images)Police

removed a mentally disturbed man in an Elmo costume from New York City’s Central Park Zoo on Sunday afternoon.

 

The man was spouting anti-Jewish insults, including encouraging visitors at the zoo to read “The International Jew” — an anti-Semitic series of pamphlets published by Henry Ford.

 

The anti-Semitic Elmo made his first appearance in 2009 in Times Square, demanding people give him money to take pictures of him. Berating people who refused to give him money, Elmo said, “Elmo needs to make a living too.” He popped up again in 2010

The judge has access to way more information than any of us and we would be fools to offer our opinions when we have neither the experience nor the information necessary to discuss teh issue much less question those who have studied law for many years and are now serving our community by working for the legal system.
