that had to be the weirdest, creepiest, just flat-out irrational prosecution press conference after a defeat in a high-visibility case that I've ever seen.

"we lost, praise be to jesus!"
"no justice, I love our country!"
"hi my name is anna corey but you might know me better as dolores umbridge"

****ing bizarre

On Saturday night a co-worker of mine fell to his death at my summer construction job. Just wow.

I do not want to talk about specifics (since I am not allowed nothing has been released publicly yet), but damn that is scary.

I know that my jobsite stresses safety above all else, since I have several times refused what I deemed unsafe work and was not only treated with respect but eventually I was even promoted. We stress safety, to have something like happen there is unreal to me (I work 2 weeks, 1 week off, I am on my week off so I wasn't on site).

The guy was 25 years old.

God that is awful. It's crazy that it still happens nowadays, but I guess it's up to the individual as well as the company to ensure safety. Sorry to hear.

Terrible news to hear, but I'm glad that there is a company that will not criticize and ostracize a person who will refuse unsafe work. There are those people who feel they have to do it, though. It's too bad, really.

At my place of employment I still catch guys not following safety protocols. I can't believe they would risk their and other peoples safety for 15-20$ an hour. Then I get employees grieving suspension's to the union when they do break the rules... I think there is still a lot of catching up North America needs to do in terms of safety culture in the work place.

Sad to see anyone lose their life on the job.

The prosecutor who brought the charges and sent that woman up the river for 20 years was the same as in the Zimmerman case - Anglea Corey. Small world.

Also, Zimmerman is apparently Hispanic. Does that count as "White" in that chart? It's generally counted as a separate visible minority in the US.

The media seems quite invested in playing up the race angle of this case. It's pretty irresponsible, IMO. I'm fairly certain that if Zimmerman has a more traditionally Hispanic last name, you'd never have heard of this case.

It was more that when I saw this I thought wow.
Related to the recent events or not that is quite crazy.

Whoa, that's terrible. Sorry for him and his family. There are always risks in construction jobs but when something happens at your own workplace, it's a big shock. Take it easy.
