As I already pointed out, the person in Texas was also on the phone with the police as he video taped the event.
And yet he was convicted of murder.
And like the prosecutor said, people believe they can walk around in a a bubble protected by syg.
Clearly that's incorrect thinking.
Your comparing apples to oranges with that Texas story. We had a similar thing happen here in Cleveland a few years ago. Some joker with a CCW shot and killed a parking lot attendant because the guy wouldn't let him park his car in the spot he wanted. He tried to claim self defense. The jury didn't buy it and neither did anybody else. The parking lot attendant was also a CCW holder and armed, but he never went for his weapon. It's a hell of a price both paid for a stupid Cav's game. This Zimmerman case is a little different.

Which is why I continually run back to the facts. But you prefer to inject your opinions as facts instead.
And you're not by saying Zimmerman's injuries were self inflicted? What's next? Are you going to try and say after he shot Martin, he took Martins hand, made a fist and pounded it into the ground? then he took his blood and spattered it on Martin's shirt? And then took his legs and ground them into the grass?

All evidence (undisputed) points to Martin's attack on Zimmerman.

Not by the way I understand the syg defense.

As I said, the Texas prosecutor pointed out that people feel they're walking around in a syg bubble.

And as another attorney wrote, the problem (or was it fear?) is that an aggressor will claim self defense when he/she begins to lose a fight they instigate. The law wasn't designed to save the loser of a fight.

From where I'm standing, it's just two different types of apples being compared to here.

Thug Zimmerman was not on the with police while he shot and killed Trayvon.
Nor was that his intent to be on the phone with 911 or the police.
So what are you suggesting here? The police called him?

Zimmerman did the right thing by calling police. Again, they mutually ended the call. There was no plot here on Zimmerman's part to end the call and then kill Martin. If he wanted to kill Martin, he wouldn't have called the police until after the shooting. The amount of time Zimmerman spent on the phone with police was more than ample time for Martin to get out of the area. Instead, he hung around watching Zimmerman until he got off the phone.

They're constantly making up stories because they can't argue the facts. they have a dozen different ways of spinning the sh!t. it's interesting because it can be categorized. they're a loony bunch for sure.

You know, the thing here is there's a dead body that Zimmerman created. There's NO WAY Zimmerman is getting out from under that prejudicial position he put himself in.

It is NOT the prosecutors job to prove self defense. It IS the prosecutor's job to present his case. If self defense is used, it's up to the defense attorney to show that option.

There is no "undisputed evidence" when it comes to the last 3 minutes of what happened. That's simply your claim.

As I keep telling you (an you ignore), I'd like to see what the forensics has to say.

And if things are as clear cut as you claim, why is O'Mara taking his time? Not going for the syg hearing? Asking for extensions? Obviously unlike you, he feels he has problems to address.

You keep making assumptions to support your assumptions. And that's fine son. That's just you.

lol! As I said son, in the Texas case not only was the person on the phone with police, he was video taping the event.

And yet he was convicted of murder.

So yes, since it has ACTUALLY occurred, being on the phone to police and "wanting" to kill is a possibility.

Remember...
Thug Zimmerman fell out of the Stupid Tree and hit every branch on the way down.
If he was stupid enough to leave his vehicle and chase, with a loaded gun, after a child who was minding his own business and then kill that child...then it stands to reason that that stupid MF is capable any stupid trick than can run across your mind.
The more I think on this case and look at the evidence, the more I'm lean inning toward this being a case of FIRST DEGREE MUDER!
Who the hell chases after an innocent child with a loaded gun?
WHO?
The so called 6 foot child was trespassing in a private yard and attacked Zimm and the evidence proves it.........LOL

Or are you going to tell us that Zim fell three times on the back of his head and then three times on his face.....????

Your apple has a worm in it and its rotten to the core. All laws are designed to protect us. SYG was designed to save the life of the victim. just because some crackpot attorney says otherwise you believe it?

No law against self defense and the prosecution will not be able to prove that the perp did not attack Zim

And the defense will be able to prove that Zim had his head bashed against something had more than three times, His nose was broken, He was hit in each eye and the perps knuckles were damadged from hitting something.

Then add in that only Zim had grass stains on his back that proves it was Zim on the bottom and the perp on top punching him.....

Legal shooting.......The perp is dead.......

NO! You complete IDIOT.
The same rules do NOT apply. Answer this simple question...
If the same rules apply, then why are there separate instructions for juries for criminal cases?
Stop being ignorant. You notice how none of your pals are coming to your defense on this? It's because even they know you're WRONG!
Your pal xxxrayted gave a link to jury instructions for criminal cases in Florida a little earlier. That would be a good starting point for you to begin your quest for the Truth and not the stuff that originates in your skull substance.
I don't have to provide you a link or anything else for the Truth to stand. The Truth is the Truth whether you find it or not; whether you believe it or not; whether you understand it or not; whether you run away from it or not.
You are a complete and utter FOOL.
I'm gonna have a little more fun with you on this until you find the Truth or I reveal it to your ignorant butt.
Now, what is it you were saying?
I posted the federal law that is used in every state but two and Florida uses the federal law..........ROTFLMAO

Have you posted anything but your liberal opinion???
NOPE........LOL

Every single person here is making judgments based on what's available about the case. I never said it was the prosecutors job to prove Zim defended himself, it's their job to prove he didn't. There is plenty of undisputed evidence in this case: Martin's knuckles and Zimmerman's injuries. Nobody can dispute that although I would love to see the prosecution try.

It's you that's making excuses for the evidence available--not I. We know what the medical results were for each party. We know Martin made no attempt to get out of the area. Those are facts. And yes, Zimmerman is going to plea self defense.

Then Thug Zimmerman is guilty in the eyes of the court?
Why isn't his child-killing azz in prison? Why do the courts allow a murderer to roam amongst us? Why do the courts allow the safety of a community to become imperiled?
Are you sure about that claim?
Yes I thought you might be stupid enough to think that is how the courts in the USA work..........LOL
