I would shoot as soon as he reached for the gun, and long before he banged my head on the sidewalk a second time. This is realty. New numbers in Chicago, 6 dead, and 28 wounded, and there is still 2 more days of weekend left. Those people use killing as a game they play. Trayvon was from the same culture. His brother identified his brothers voice on the 911 tape then admitted he really didn't know his brother all that well. Lying under oath doesn't mean a damn thing to them. The longer this trial goes on the worse it looks for the State of Florida.

If TM came into GZ house, this would be an obvious case of self defense. I don't see how shooting someone you followed is justified under "stand your ground" if TM attacked him on the street, definitely! TM attacked him because he was following him and he thought his life was in danger. He was obviously correct in thinking he was in danger.

So far the State's own witnesses have proven Zimmerman shot Trayvon in self defense. Unless they have a secret witness they can bring in before Friday, the Defense rests, and Mr Zimmerman walks for lack of evidence

I guess whether George Zimmerman is found guilty or not guilty, justice comes in knowing that he will never be able to live in peace, always wondering who is coming after him next! George Zimmerman + Casey Anthony = The Grimm Reaper Eventually Comes To Those That Wait
I take it that you are convinced that Zimmerman is guilty of murder.

You may be right about justice. The man can never feel safe, either in the pen or if he is freed.

How about this. If Zimmerman is found not guilty, would you feel as uptight as you appear to be, if he is murdered?

He was neighborhood watch the guy was acting suspicious and the guy Trayvon already has terrible criminal record at very young age. What part of being out of place and not known to neighborhood do you not understand. Suppose he'd been in your neighborhood and robbed,raped your mother? Hmm put yourself in that situation kind of stings now!!!!
We now know that Martin used drugs, was suspended from school numerous time, was sent to live with his father by his mother after the last suspension, that he used a variation of the Nword on his twitter account, and that his twitter language was laced with profane and degrading words. Martin was not a model kid.

But there are young men who play the punk in order to fit in. Was that what Martin was or was he really a bad actor. It makes a great deal of difference. If Martin was a punk, then he seethed with anger and was capable of reacting with aggression and anger.

Sure, practically had the piss scared out of me too, but nobody jumped me, and obviously I'm still here.

That might not be the case though, had I turned back and decided to pick a fight. You never know who you might be dealing with...

I'm willing to bet the gf who had the final call with TM, probably encouraged and egged him on. I bet that kid wouldn't have been so brave and stupid to turn around?

Yes. I agree. We have all noticed the level of intelligence of the clever White "Liberal" ruling class who keep the Africans down by giving them taxpayer funded Government handouts and making endless excuses for their behavior. You are also correct that few people of any race have a dislike of the Africans until they suffer the misfortune of being around them.

Agree. The reality is hard for many to acknowledge. Sometimes every day interactions are required to see how bad things are. The inner city and suburbs suffer from their behavior.

He passed on going home, in the darkening rain, in order to confront, then savagely attack George Zimmerman....Hard to imagine, i know......All evidence support's it....even the best Medical Examiner in the land, confirmed that Trayvon was on top and leaning over George, when he was shot....

Looks like the Defense will rest today without calling Mr Zimmerman to the stand to be poked at by the State's inept prosecutors. They didn't prove 2nd degree murder. They didn't even prove manslaughter. All they proved was that you cannot show up in court without a case, and you cannot take Skittles to a gunfight!.
