You know,, the more i think about it , the more i say to myself what is the problem with following someone who you believe to be suspicious. The main argument i would say is did George confront trayvon. I don't see any witnesses to prove that,except number 8 and she has zero credibility.

"But a citizen engaged in innocent behavior (including investigating a potential crime) is not required to heed a dispatcher’s advice."

Too bad he wasn't minding his own business. Martin had ample time to go home but chose not to.
What was he doing out on the sidewalk ANYWAY?!!!

Didn't he know the sidewalk was for WHITE PEOPLES only?

Still legal for black people, Dongliquer, even in Florida.

The only thing the state of Florida has is evidence.

What do they need what they already know, anyway? The pedophile was white and that kid minding his own business on the sidewalk was black.

From the call released by the Sanford Police:
At 2:07 seconds, Zimmerman tells the dispatcher,“He’s running.”
At 2:09, you can hear a car door open and an alarm begins that is undoubtedly the “door open, keys in ignition” warning on Zimmerman’s truck.
At 2:13, you can clearly hear the car door slamming shut, and the alarm stops.
At 2:17, Zimmerman’s voice wobbles and he starts breathing heavily into the phone, indicating that he has started running.
I guess that blows Pinocchio's lie that the pedophile only followed Martin for ten seconds.

Since you are the expert on blowing- maybe you can point this out to him.

Sounds like you are entirely too focused on boinking children. Take your gay trash somewhere else. It's so disgusting.

Boca, i agree with the breakdown of events. However i don't think it would be in the best interest of George to say at any point that he was "following" trayvon. The best defense would be to state that the wind was blowing and that's what we can hear through the phone while George attempts to get a definitive location for the dispatcher to pass on to officers in route.
There is no law against trying to follow a person who appears suspicious to you. Logic says after calling police you would want to try to show them where that suspicious person is .

Have you had your gay fetish all your life or only since your HS football team won you in a raffle?

"From the time Martin is aware Zimmerman is watching him until the time the fight starts, he has over 5 minutes to go less than 1000 feet if he wants to evade the stalker."

Martin had so much time he could have rolled home.

Putting aside there was no crime at any time starting from the time the pedophile spotted the black kid cutting through his neighborhood: he wasn't charged with disregarding the orders of the police dispatcher.

He is charged with the unlawful killing that occured when the pedophile took it upon himself to pretend to be the police officer he wasn't.

You forgot to mention that Zimmerman is a registered Democrat which is worse than your other claims.

That is unusual. According to the DOJ about 93% of black homicides are committed by blacks.

Logic is: you go right where the police dispatcher tells you to go.

And wait for three minutes.

Like the Pedophile was told to do.

You don't take it upon yourself to pretend to be a cop and confront someone who apparently had every right to be right where he was out.

Especially when you went to school to be a cop and flunked out of school because you didn't have what it took... e.g., the ability to follow instructions.

How dare this boy be BLACK and on a whites-only sidewalk!

Oh... right... the boy had EVERY RIGHT TO BE EXACTLY WHERE HE WAS AT, and he did not have to go running home just because the pedophile was giving him the evil eye.

You mean the person who was following him?

It was very clear the judge was not going to give his attorneys enough time to prepare and the judge would close any opportunity for him to incorporate syg into the trial. I don't understand the law well enough but why would his attorneys not establish a sound plan before they take away Zimmerman's rights? His attorneys did not prepare for this response and now they have set Zimmerman up for the fall. I've said all along that he should get other counsel. I think the judge is biased and doing everything possible to convict Zimmerman. He won't get off. This should be a wake up call to all those who believe in our rights to protect ourselves. If you shoot a black man and the relatives have connections with the race baiters, you are in serious trouble. You will be found guilty regardless of the truth.
Look at the weight this guy has put on. Clearly, he has been screwed by the system while the 'parents' will get millions and for what? For not supervising their own kid.
Which judge son? They've had at least two.

And Zimmerman did lie to the first one. And the second must have concurred since the decision wasn't overturned to reduce bail.

Clearly he was given an opportunity to come clean. Obviously he chose a different path.

He's had 3. He whined about the first one who recused herself. Then he lied to the second one. The third one agreed and not only didn't lower his bail, the terms of his bail were stiffened.

Now, the state is asking for sanctions against O'Mara because he also lied to the second judge. Of course, he's lying about lying but the videos will prove it all.
