Racism is GLOBAL. No need to rant & grunt like a pig to convince posters here you are hate filled to black people or any group that doesn't resemble you.
There were others before you. Ones whose speeches convinced the down trodden it was okay to be slaves and never have civil or human rights bestowed to their race.
Your kind tried so hard to culminate hatred to people of color but there was a man who said "we shall overcome" and one baby step at a time we live in dignity. Something you never knew.
You should be able to explain your point view without hatred but but hate is so imbedded in your sole there is no hope.

Yes, it would make the blood look like more, in fact it would cover a larger area, making it even more difficult for Trayvon's clothing/hands to not come in contact with it if, as GZ has claimed, Trayvon punched him more than a dozen times while he was down (GZ interview with Sean Hannity).

And, if TM punched him more than a dozen times, surely TM would have had some indications of a fist fight on his own hands.

Name me one case where a murderer called the police before he killed a person of intent.
Your insinuation is ridiculous. HTF did Zimmerman know that Martin was hiding behind the houses waiting to attack him when he figured out he wanted to kill somebody?
You are repeating the same lies you read over and over. So I'm calling azz. Show me where Zimmerman "defied" anybody on that 911 tape. Show me! The dispatcher is not a police officer and has no authority to make demands of anybody. A police dispatcher is a city employee no different than a maintenance man. Show me one ounce of evidence that Zimmerman "chased" Martin down after talking with the dispatcher for a minute or so giving Martin more than enough time to jog down the street to where he was staying that night.
There was a threat to Zimmerman's life. That's why he used his firearm as a last resort.
GZ's re-enactment video does not explain how Trayvon's body was found 30 feet away from where he said it happened.

Oh I bet your kids are armed all the time! With a parent like you they need to be. Are you sure they are armed with guns and not SHANKS they've made in prison ?
Too funny!!! The closest my kids have come to prison is the time-out chair when they were small. Now ThugTray absolutely should have been incarcerated for his vandalism, drug use, drug selling, possession of stolen property, and on and on. How is it that charges were never filed against the little dirtbag? Perhaps the incubator's government job offered her some "connections" to keep her ghetto ape kid out of juvie?(Hey, it's at least as believable as the idiot theory that a retired magistrate from VA had all kinds of "pull"). Or perhaps the school district in Miami simply didn't do their job in pressing charges against the animal. Guess they weren't keeping a very good eye on his friend who murdered his own mother, either. Oh, and daddy's slut's kid was lying through his teeth yesterday. "No, I never looked out the window. No, I didn't hear any shouting or gunshots or sirens or helicopters". Kid's either lying or was too drugged up to know what was going on around him. What can you expect of a kid raised by a slut who was shacked up with her boyfriend while her kid was in the house and who let her boyfriend's juvenile delinquent kid stay there to influence her kid. She's just another incubator. I will say that the defense blew it by not hammering that little liar a lot harder.

Oh well........off to work, have to support all the dirtbag welfare trash who will be laying on their sofas watching the trial on their bigscreen TV's today. Best of luck to the defense......hope they're more on their game today than they were yesterday.

I hope George is convicted of 2nd degree murder.

My ONLY regret is that KC Anthony was found
not guilty of any of the 3 murder charges.

She deserved to get at least one of the murder charges.

She DID kill Caylee.

The injuries are documented by the paramedics that attended the scene. Furthermore, no legal authority has the right to force somebody into hospitalization. The only time the police or paramedics can make that call is if somebody is unable to make that decision for themselves.
The injuries are visible on the police tape when Zimmerman entered the police station.
Wrong, the injuries were cleaned up at the scene after a cursory examination. The attending paramedic has already testified at one of the bond hearings.

The injuries were documented by the physicians attendant at Altamonte Family Practice where George arrived at 11:15 AM the following morning.

In Florida a paramedic can insist that a person be transported to a hospital and in some cases by helicopter, over the objections of the injured party. It happens all the time, particularly in DUI related accidents.

Refusing medical treatment for injuries that appear serious "should" send a message to police and paramedics that the injured person in trying to hide alcohol or drug impairment.

Why is it that you just make sht up? You're not fooling anyone.

I think you have that wrong He use the gun without trying to fight back. Shooting was the first resort. George caused the fight. I bet he called the kid names to his face just like he did on the 911 call and is why the kid punched him in the nose. George was nothing but a sissy, now a murderer.

Why do you make ship up? Nobody can force a patient to get treatment they don't want. If they have weak or no medical coverage (such as Martin) nobody has the legal authority to put them in severe debt. If the police want to test somebody's sobriety, they don't need paramedics or hospitals to do that.

Patients are rarely forced to get treatment unless they qualify for Baker Act protection. Nothing in Mr. Zimmerman's demeanor or verbalizations indicated that he was in any way a danger to himself or others the night he was forced to defend himself by shooting the violent thug who attacked him. Mr. Zimmerman had every right to decline emergency treatment that night in favor of seeing his own medical providers the next day. This "issue" is just another case of ThugTray supporters taking an irrelevant detail and trying to make a big deal out of it when the reality is that THE STATE HAS NO CASE. The only crime committed that night was the one committed by the now-dead thug who attacked and tried to kill Mr. Zimmerman for looking at him. Mr. Zimmerman may have been foolish that night and likely wishes he'd let the dirty thug go ahead and rob some houses, but it is not illegal to be foolish. If it were, all the ThugTray supporters would have been hauled off to jail long ago.

From YOUR site:
"Now every general rule has its exceptions; which is a good thing because if that was not the case, lawyers like myself would not have much to do. If you pose an immediate threat to yourself or others, you can be involuntarily hospitalized. You may have heard someone say that an individual was "Baker acted", as it is often put, because he or she was depressed and feeling suicidal. Again, the issue centers on the individual's ability to make sound and reasonable choices, after rational and intelligent reflection on the risks and benefits of seeking treatment for a given condition. In circumstances in which an individual appears to be incapable of doing so, the law has gradually evolved to its current state, in which the freedom of will that we want individuals to be capable of exercising at all times, has been frayed at a bit at the corners."
Get over yourself fool, if you've been in a highway accident and have a compound fracture of the arm or leg, you can bet that you're going to the hospital no matter how much you complain.

Your dumbazz wants it both ways, typical for know it all types who wing it rather that think things through. or do a modicum of research.

George was not hurt and didn't require medical attention, his injuries were minimal, his story about having his brains nearly bashed in, over and over, is just the same sort of bullcht found in your posts.

He is full of himself and doesn't appear to be rational in his thinking process. He also has a problem with reading comprehension.

It is useless to explain anything to him, he's a lost cause.

The only way the paramedics can take you to the hospital against your will is if you're unconscious or seemingly unable to make your own decisions. Other than that, both your legs could be broken and the only thing they insist you do is sign a release form.
Zimmerman's injuries may not have been life threatening, but certainly serious enough to warrant defensive action. If I ever get into that situation, I'm shooting too and the law states I have every legal right to whether the animal is 50 or 15.
You know the laws-procedures in all fifty states?

You assume that I have no experience in these types of matters?

You're a fool.

And a liar.
