You quoted a post that had nothing to do with your point.

So. Can anybody show a single piece of evidence it wasnt self defense?

So far that would be no. All evidence proves self defense. May that family rot in hell.

I hope Zimmerman is fully vindicated. I would love to see him successfully sue Crump civilly.

Yep, more money taken out of U.S. economy...win/win.

Don't forget, the taxpayers will lose out on taxes that are written off, so we'll all pay, even those who don't care two ***ts about this case in "real life".

Well, he wouldn't have to leave if the NAACP hadn't done such a thorough job slandering him.

Fla taxpayers are on the hook for his room/board when in custody as well as investigative and court costs. All because of a political agenda.

I think it's becoming more and more clear that GZ is the real victim in this case. It's unfortunate that so many look to put the blame on him for what this case has turned into.

To think with many things in life you reap what you sow. Had there been less people like yourself this case would have been over back in March.

There's nothing political about a proper judicial process to determine if shooting to death an unarmed person was justified.

It would be political to not let the judicial system work.

It had already worked. There was nothing to arrest him on as all evidence proved self defense.

They actually broke the law by charging him.

This is a travesty of justice right now, all based on racist blacks.

The original DA, after reviewing the evidence and testimony, declined to press charges.

After pressure from special interest groups, the governor appointed AC special prosecutor to "reexamine the case" (reach a different conclusion).

How is that not political prosecution?

spin spin spin.

the judicial system worked at first. the first DA declined to charge him, the police said it was Self defense.

then it got political. they brought a person who has a reputation of charging even with no to little evidence and then he is charged.

This is a political stunt. teh judicial system has failed.

The dangers of profiling caught on the 911 tape and the guy himself will even admit it.

Mind boggling

If you play this story out in your mind....it displays clearly the recklessness of GZ (or at the very least a stupidity level bordering on mental retardation/clinical paranoia).

His own accounts of the call and altercation (which are much more tame than the call would suggest) are much more adversarial in nature than Martin's as described by GZ.

No one can defend his reaction to Martin…
This reaction triggered a strong response from GZ as you can hear from the call…

I don’t care about self defense laws for get out free cards, people like this should not be pseudo patrolling our neighborhoods….no amount of property is worth the loss of life or these type of community/country enflaming incidents…At least official guardians of the peace have rules, procedures and some type of accountability and self restraint. He even had a chance to avoid this due to the well trained 911 operator who was very insistant, clear and forceful.....sad day...

It looks like zimmerman correctly profiled martin as a criminal thug. This is proven by the felony brutal and vicious attack on zimmerman's life.

i agree. i think GZ has some responbility. He was reckless and the gun gave him a false sense of bravado.

he is one that should not have a gun and should never after this.

BUT saying that he is also not guilty of murder 2.

Right, because he saw Trayvon viciously attacking people as he walked him from the store, but despite that he called a non emergency number.


I think your posts are getting weaker and weaker spidey. Fact of the matter is that GZ had not witnessed Trayvon doing anything wrong or illegal when he called police.

He was just being nosy as he'd been many times before. Nothing was going to happen that night if he didn't insert himself into the situation and instigate the confrontation that occurred.

Trayvon wasn't going to break into anybody's house that night, or assault anybody. He was forced to react to a gun wielding psychopath who was following him home with unknown intentions. He stood his ground and was shot dead by a wanna-be police officer who for all intents and purposes was impersonating a police officer... Living out a fantasy which culminated in shooting to death a black child.
