Here, Have A Cartoon Edit About George Zimmerman

While I do have a cartoon that I'm still working on from the trial, here's an edit I made of a cartoon about George Zimmerman by editorial cartoonist Dana Summers. It seemed like it was going in the right direction, and then BAM!, it went somewhere else. Here is the original cartoon:



And here is what I thought the cartoon was going to be:

How does it feel to be black?


I had to make it in MS Paint this morning, in a hurry. Creating the K out of an "I" and a rotated V was kind of tricky.

The Next Step For Florida After Trayvon Martin Is For A Black Teenager To Be Wrongfully Convicted Of Felony Murder And For People To Actually Notice

Florida is a horrible state with horrible laws. The self-defense and gun laws have gotten a lot of attention lately because of George Zimmerman and his killing of Trayvon Martin, but in the other direction, Florida's felony murder rules are also horrible.

In simple terms, felony murder is when somebody who directly killed nobody is convicted of murder because a death resulted from a crime they were involved in. In the United States, this kind of thing is generally left up to state law, so felony murder laws vary wildly by state. Some felony murder laws make sense. For example, if two people kidnap a child and holds the child for ransom, and one of them murders the child because the ransom is not met, it makes sense to punish both kidnappers for murder.

However, Florida's felony murder rules are so insane that people can be convicted of murder and sent to prison for decades for ridiculous reasons. For example, with a really broad felony murder law, a person can be convicted for murder if they punch a friend at a bar in the stomach, the person wanders out of the bar, and a piano falls on the person and kills them. This is bad!

So I guess the next step for Florida, if it plans to keep this thing going, is for a black teenager to be convicted of felony murder for something absurd like standing near a bank while it's being robbed and making eye contact with a robber-murderer, and then for America to somehow notice this case and be outraged by it.

Working At The SEIU Is Still Cool

Boy, is it cool! Besides the amicus brief they have me writing, they sent me to a union election at a hospital in Pennsylvania, had me helping at the big immigration reform rally outside the Capitol yesterday, and also have me working to try to organize fast food workers, which hasn't been done before. Plus it pays well for a summer public interest law gig.

Unfortunately, I'm probably going to keep them a secret this time. But man, I have some great ones. It's too bad articles like this don't realize that search engine optimization is likely to play a role in the domain squatting field for 2016. Remember, my site Santorum-2012.com was the first Google result for "Santorum 2012" throughout the whole primaries season of 2012. I got to attached to the site to try to sell it though, unfortunately.

People Are Finally Writing About The Jester



http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2013/07/hacker-jester-targets-assange-snowden-ecuador

Maybe he's been written about before, but this is the first time I've read about hacker The Jester in something I actually normally read. I know other sources are writing about him now too.

I would say more about him, but it overlaps too much with what I did before law school at the now-disgraced private military and intelligence contractor I worked at as an analyst.
