In watching The View and their views on the case I have a few comments. I believe Whoppi was saying if Mr. Zimmerman could get his hand out with a gun why couldn't he have just hit Mr. Martin instead of using a gun to get him off of him? If Mr. Martin was pounding Mr. Zimmerman's head into concrete that seems like deadly force and can't you use deadly force against deadly force? Also in the discussion profiling was brought up and about how the jurys verdict could have been different if the case was viewed from a different perspective? It seems there is racisum from both the white and black sides. It is going to get to a point that people are not going to call the police or try to get help because they might be afraid of people looking at them thinking they are profiling someone. I don't myself look at someone as a thug just because of what they wear, what race they are, their national origin, or what religion they are. If you are acting like a thug your a thug plain and simple but let's not think I am refering to Mr. Martin as a thug, I was not there and don't know how either party was acting or not acting. Why can't we view people on their actions not their color?

Let's not forget, It was young black men that were doing the brake-ins. So who else well be profiled. Why would George profile a young white women?
When someone is beating your head into the concrete you don't care what color that person is. George would done the same thing no matter what color trayvon was.

Most blacks could care less about the truth, All they know and care about is one of their kind was taken out.

Whoopi is just exploring the theoretical; it's a valid question. I'd have to believe a competent detective would have asked that same question (many times - it's the crux of the situation) in the ensuing interviews.

I didn't watch the trial, and I rarely trust the media, so, can anybody answer these 2 questions for me?(as was presented in the trial, be it evidence, testimony or legal conjecture...)

Which of these 2 people approached within arms' reach of the other?

If there was any verbal exchange between the two, what words were spoken before any physical contact was made?

I'd even like to hear Whoopi's answer.

martin went after zim and confronted him.when he saw that he was physically superior to zim he did what all black thugs do he started a fight knowing he could kick his ass.now if zim was bigger martin would have backed off maybe yelling a few ebonic words at zim and he would be alive.

"martin went after zim and confronted him."

Is this Zimmerman's claim or a witness' testimony? If it came from a lawyer I'll put no creedence into it.

George z is a goof that ruined his life and took another. If he had stayed in his car like the police had told him to, none of it would have happened. The juror that was interviewed said that Georgey boy showed," A terrible lack of judgement." You can debate it forever, and you'll believe what you want.

No need for debate....as the trials evidence and eyewitness testimony and verdict, backed up Georges account that Trayvon savagely attacked George and got legally shot....PERIOD.....
