What difference does his height have to do with it? Zimmerman was stalking him. The Threat was to Trayvon.
But in your racist, Republican fascist bigot world, walking while black is enough for a death sentence.
You are a sub human pig.


If you put your hands on someone you have to exspect them to retaliate! And even if I follow you to your house and the police are to scared to come into the community to investigate then you hit me from behind and beat my head into the pavement and I scream over and over and my neighbors have lived in fear for so long they pay no attention . I promise I wil shoot your ass too!

If you were walking in a neighborhood in which you were an invited guest, and a man (of any color) started following you in his car, then got out of his car and started to pursue you, including speaking out in a challenging manner, asking what business you had being where you were. What would your reaction be? Would you tell him to F off? Would you run? What would you do if he continued to pursue further? Would you turn and stand your ground? Which person gets to stand their ground first? The pursued, the pursuer, or the one with the biggest weapon?

Your ignorance is shameful! Btw in the United States 17 & under are considered minors (kids), 18 does not consider a boy to be a man however he's no longer a minor. Its when they reach 21 that they become a full grown man as you put it. What a douche! Its apparent that you are a racist bastard!

so you are saying it is a crime to defend yourself from a thug under 21.

I think height does matter. Someone who is 5'8" is not going to intimidate someone who is 6'3" unless of course he had the gun in his hand ready to shoot him.

I think that there is a strong case for self-defense but the police should have held him and let the judicial branch make that interpretation of the law. It sounds like the prosecutor wanted to charge him initially so someone should be fired for that.

I can't believe the number of lawmakers who came out publically to claim this was a racially motivate crime before all the facts came out. Shame on them. Even Obama something about the case.

.
It is the prosecutor's decision on whether to file charges. the prosecutor has a duty to submit evidence to a grand jury to file murder charges.

The police are charged with investigating the crime, collecting evidence and apprehending suspects. They released Zimm because the evidence pointed to his inocense and the prosecutor did not require he be held. Zimm made no attempt to flee.

The prosecutor failed here. Not the cops.

Just a side note:

The police chief who was fired yesterday will have a fantastic lawsuit again the city. The city manager who fired him is black and the police chief is white. This is clearly a racially motiated firing.

Watch the news.

it is perfectly acceptable to society for blacks to screw whites over. there is no such thing as blacks being racist,just ask any left wing liberal. to them only whites can be racist.

Treyvon Martin had his head covered with a hoodie in in Orlando on a hot night and attacked Zimmerman. He was beating the crap out of Zimmerman; banging his head on the concrete; trying to kill him. Zimmerman shot in self defense.
Had Martin been 21 years old, no one would be talking about this. He was just another hoodlum wannabee.
I heard 6' 3" but for some reason wikipedia says he was 5' 11" at the time of death. Why would a source such as that say 5' 11"?

And trust me, I get why someone trying to put a twist on things would, but why wikipedia? I would hope they would be unbiased...

First, I quoted this from newspaper accounts that purportedly got his height from the autopsy report.

Second, Wikipedia is edited by ordinary people like you and me. You can go to Wiki and change his height to 4'10". Until someone else changes it back, it stays. They don't have a staff of experts that verify it.

His height became a huge issue in the media. I am not surprised that someone took it upon themselves to change it.

His height is irrelevant. Treyvon was an unarmed, kid eating skiddles, when he was tracked down like a dog by a wild eyed wannabe cop with a gun. If the killer had not threatened Treyvon, Treyvon would still be alive.

This guy is a murderer, will be proven so, despite Republican "Castle Doctrine" or "stand your ground" laws. These right wing whack job laws give people the idea they can hunt other humans without ramifications.

This is just one more reason to throw out Republicans in government. They just want to sell guns, pocket profits and the hell with anyone else.

Personally... I think the guy showed great restraint... he obviously was not out to shoot someone.
If he was just a vigilante... and following a hoodlum planning on killing him... he would have shot the dude when he was coming at him... and not waited until he was beating the shit out of him.
Case closed.
I should be this guys defense attorney.
The QUOTE.. HOODLUM....was the one with the gun...geez....fault him for being a big kid with of course no criminal record...fault him for having his hood over his head in the rain....you people are Pathetic!!!
