I carried a concealed loaded weapon for over 20 years and there is no law that says you can't follow anyone carrying a gun
And if you are in fear of someone you can also draw your weapon
And anyone that attacks me will be shot..........
Punks beware
lol! Well that's fine son.

We'll let the tape speak for itself since it's pertinent to the case and not your "20 years."

The state of Florida isn't using NBC tapes and neither am I.

And poor pedophile thug: the state isn't going to be using the tape he made except to prove that he is a liar.

I can't wait to see the pedophile's final version.

When the state proves that you shot someone with your gun, especially an unarmed someone who was walking on a sidewalk carrying only a bag of candy on his way home, and that you have a history of violence: you better get online and find that soap-on-a-rope.

Anyone that has listen to the tape and looked at the other evidence understands that Zim was defending himself

Morons that claim oslamacare is a good thing have not studied that either

And I have not met one person that likes oslamacare and thinks Zim is not guilty

But morons that think raising taxes on medical supplies will lower the cost of them also think you should not defend your self if some perp attacks you

Not sure what case you are talking about but if it is the one where he shot a guy in the back then that is clearly not self defense

But morons would not know the difference between shooting someone running away and shooting someone attacking you

Bottom line is the black perp attacked someone and he died because of it.........

Disrespect of a short, fat, drug addict who had a history (and arrest) for violence and who flunked out of community college trying to become a cop and ended up shooting a boy who forgot his "Yes, sirs"?

Let's make sure before we judge this fat short flunky pedophile we get the entire picture and remember his bail hearing when he conspired with his wife to lie about his assets before the court that will try him shortly.

Everyone has met one or two of these cop wannabes in their life and know exactly what happens and the tape and the transcripts are going to be the evidence used to convict the pedophile, not the fictional film he created a few days later.

"Texas Man Found Guilty for Killing Neighbor in Dispute

By ANTHONY CASTELLANO
June 14, 2012

A jury has convicted a Texas man for murdering his neighbor during a confrontation over loud music two years ago, rejecting a claim that he was within his rights to fatally shoot the man under Texas' version of a "stand-your-ground" law.

Raul Rodriguez, 47, faces up to life in prison for the killing of Kelly Danaher, 36. Sentencing is scheduled to begin today.

"I'm just glad he can't hurt anybody else," Danaher's wife, Mindy, said. "I love my husband, and I miss him so much ... and he helped all of us get through this today."

It took the jury less than six hours Wednesday to decide between self-defense and murder. Jurors, apparently agreeing with prosecutors that Rodriguez, a retired Houston-area firefighter, was a trigger-happy neighborhood bully.

"He felt like he had ultimate control, control to determine who lives and who dies," Donna Logan, Harris County Assistant District Attorney, said.

Rodriguez recorded the argument in May of 2010 when he killed Danaher, an elementary school teacher, and wounded two other people. The 22-minute homemade video was the key to the trial as Rodriguez's lawyers argued it was self-defense under Texas' version of the so-called stand-your-ground law, which is also at the center of the Trayvon Martin case in Florida.

It was after midnight when Rodriguez, complaining to police via telephone that the music was too loud, walked up to Danaher's driveway with a flashlight and gun.

In the video, Rodriguez can be heard talking to a 911 operator, saying, "I'm running the video camera right now and I'm talking to you and I mean, I'm scared to death here."

In the unfolding confrontation between Rodriguez and several unidentified men, one yells, "Tell you what, pal, you just pulled a gun on the wrong [expletive], OK?"

When one of the party-goers saw Rodriguez's gun, he suggested he is getting his own. "When I go in that house and come back," he warned, "don't think I won't be equal to you, baby."

"It's about to get out of hand sir, please help me. Please help me, my life is in danger now ...," Rodriguez told police over the phone. "Now, I'm standing my ground here. Now, these people are going to try and kill me."

Seconds later, a fight about loud music ends with the crack of gunfire...."

Nope. The bottom line is Zimmerman stalked Martin with a loaded weapon and got caught.

You cannot change your stance from the aggressor to being defensive simply because you're losing a fight you initiated.

The Martin family attorney Crump planted a phony witness which will be exposed at trial. It will be interesting to see how they react as their house of cards begins to collapse all around them.

George Zimmerman is a hero and an American icon.

Merry Christmas George.

My opinion will be less important than the twelve people who put your bigoted pedophile in jail.

Unless, of course, he takes the pleas to keep you lying wife out of jail.

Putting aside like every other person on this earth: I do not give two sh!ts what your opinion is.

Yes indeed, they have never stopped crying and they will continue to do so even when they are finally exposed once and for all for their malicious attempt to impede justice and to destroy George Zimmerman.

George Zimmerman has more supporters out there than Martin ever had. Most people are honest, thank God.

Merry Christmas George, England loves you.
