All it proves is that Zimmerman was defenseless against this animal. It also proves that Zimmerman didn't attack Martin first because there were no marks on Martin's body to even suggest such a thing. So what you're trying to convince yourself of is that Zimmerman knew that Martin would attack him for whatever reason, and that would give him legal rights to shoot Martin.
Yeah, sure, that's what happened. LOL!
If some creep followed you and approached you with a gun, would you just lie down and let him do what he wanted with you, or would you fight back? Your argument is stupid on so many levels. No marks on Martin after he allegedly gave the obese man a beating? Was he wearing boxing gloves? And how did the obese man scream for his life when he says the teen covered his mouth?
I don't really care how the trial turns out because I know it's going to be "God's will" as the obese killer says. He may prefer prison just to avoid paying those goofball attys, Wayland Flowers and Madame.

<quoted text>Martin wasn't afraid of Zimmerman.....he was going to beat up this cracker so his gf could listen. Maybe she egged him on. As I said, Martin would have been home eating chips and ice cream, if he were worried about this creepy ass rapist cracker. Zimmerman was no match for a street fighter with MMA style training. This trial should never have taken place. This is a media/political lynching.
Hey stup, this trial wouldn't be taking place if the obese killer felt justified enough to face a judge in a SYG hearing. He's a coward and he knows what he did was cowardly and there's NOTHING he can say to change it. SYG hearing wouldn't be any more expensive than this trial and if he was right, he'd be bbq'ing as we speak. Instead, he enjoys pork rinds and honeybuns over doing the right thing;D

Trayvon was a wannabe gangster thug, evident by his twitter and cell phone records. Wonder where he got the gun that he was holding in his photo, not to mention the pictures of the pot plants and of him with a grill in his mouth. Too bad they are not allowed in evidence because they would prove that he is not the innocent child that he was first presented to be in the years old photo's that his parents attorney presented when this all began. His autopsy report also showed TCP in his system, proving that his suspensions from school and staying with his father didn't curtail his pot smoking.

George Zimmerman was legally carrying a gun, was struck by Trayvon Martin and there was no need for this trial. If Trayvon were white, and Zimmerman black, we wouldn't even be discussing this.

Check the autopsy report and you will see that Trayvon did have cuts on his hands, obviously from where he punched Zimmerman. If Zimmerman had his gun out and ready to fire, I don't believe Trayvon would have gotten in the damage that he did to George's head.

You keep saying there's no need for this trial..you're right, he should have faced a SYG hearing! If it happened as you said, why doesn't he help himself and defend his SYG claim? If it's as simple as you say, what's the problem? SYG is NOT 'self defense', and if this is about self defense and not SYG, then surely GZ will wattle up to the stand and tell his harrowing tale;) Right? LOL

If somebody approaches you with a gun, your only defense is to put your arms up and surrender.
Nobody with a gun approaches somebody at point blank range. When somebody shoots another, it's well within a distance that leaves the victim helpless. It's apparent in this case that it was exactly how Zimmerman said it was. He was being severely assaulted and had no choice but to use his gun as Martin made an attempt to take that gun from him. Nothing to suggest otherwise.
Oh, I see. I can pack heat, drive around your neighborhood and spot you walking in the rain, go follow you with my weapon waving and you're supposed to put your hands up and hope I don't shoot? Or should I push you when you ask why I'm following you, roll to the ground fighting over my weapon and when I get a chance, cap your ass? Sounds good, no telling who offends me.

Yeah, he played football, but was far from an A-B student.
His dad might have thought he was at a friends house, but a real dad would have grounded him because he was suspended from school. That's what my responsible parents did. I was not even allowed to play in the back yard when I was suspended yet alone roam the streets at night.
In fact yesterday I linked an article that said part of the reason that Trayvon had been very recently, within a month of is death, suspended at school was because his GPA dipped below 2.0. That along with his misbehavior at school got him temporarily kicked out.

Martin was not angel. I am not saying that he is a thug. He has only very minor criminal charges, graffiti etc..

For those of you who don't understand GPA's if you have a 2.0 average your average is below a C and above a D.

What makes you think that Martin had his weapon out?

Seriously that is one foolish statement. And if someone had his weapon out the last thing you would do is to close and battle with the person.

Zimmerman's story makes much more sense than yours.

Can't wait for the race baiters Rev Jackoffson and not so Sharpweighsaton come back to all the cameras of the bleeding heart media. Maybe Rev Jackoffson can impregnate the 30 year old high school senior. Wouldn't be the first time.

It doesn't matter if he was Charles Freaking Manson! He wasn't doing anything but walking the night he was murdered in cold blood. Victims are not required to be saints last I checked, and dirtying up the victim can be a huge mistake on the part of the defense.. you look so desperate and evil.

That's funny, your obese buddy said TM saw his gun and went for it..well, not to worry, I'm sure the obese killer will take the stand and explain to the rest of us what makes perfect sense to you;)

You don't know that he won't take the stand. So far most of the State's witnesses seem to support Zimmerman's story, not the thug wannabe. I am sure GZ took the advice of his attorney's when making the decision on the SYG, as he should take the advice of his attorney

Why, doesn't his lawyer believe him? SYG hearing..should be a breeze, tell it like it is GZ, tell it!
I fully expect the obese killer to take the stand IF he wants anyone to believe him at this point. No SYG, no justification for this murder! That simple;D

Please, do try to follow along.

He only saw the gun after he was on top of Zimmerman beating him up.

It was dark.

It was nighttime.

If Zimmerman had it out any sensible person would have ran away.

If you are screaming for help while running away the bullet wound will be in your back, not in your front. If you are running away the bullet wound would be from a distance, not up close and personal.

If you are screaming for help while running away the other person will not have a broken nose and lacerations to the back of his scalp.

The fact is he would not have seen the gun until he was right on top of him, literally, as has been testified by an eye witness.

Try to think logically.

I would'nt totally count on that....Even Nancy Grace and some of CNN are starting to moonwalk, a bit away from their previous 72 weeks of screaching that George is a killer and Trayvon's a baby.....seem's on the horizon.....ShaaZamm......

Nope you're wrong again, all Trayvon had was one little mark on his ring finger. Probably got it from one of Georges nose hairs. I like your new sock!]

I agree on the first part of your statement. Not on the second.

He was not killed in cold blood. It is obvious from testimony that Martin started the fight.

You cannot start a fight just because the person following you is a bit pudgy ( he is obese today ) and it is dark out. Martin started the fight and paid for it with his life.

So why is Z-Biggie walking around with no permanent injuries and Martin is buried six feet under? If TM was as vicious as some say, he would be alive and
GZ would be six feet in a hole He's not. GZ was taking MMA and had trained on how to shoot to kill with a weapon.
How bad would he have to be injured to justify him defending himself? You know the law makes no such distinction. Even the just the threat of bodily harm legally rises to the level that lethal force is allowed in self defense. Citizens are not required to be skilled street fighters before using a firearm to stop an attacker.

Try to imagine if GZ was a women, would it then be ok to shoot? If it was a female member of the watch he beat bloody while she screamed for help?

You linked an article...just yesterday...that revealed the actual PDF grade transcripts of the deceased juvenile?

I don't think that you did that at all...why don't you try it again.
