If Zimmerman was going to the store, then he took an awfully weird path.

As for your claims about what Zimmerman was doing, that remains to be seen. But it's a fact he chased Martin with a loaded weapon and killed him with it. That's indisputable.

<quoted text>Ah! So it's your contention then that Martin was shot with this own weapon then?

And the police account that they found the weapon in his holster is a lie?

Or are you claiming the weapon coming with him was not a matter of choice? It was decided by the weapon to stay on Zimmy?

You need to make up your mind on events son. You can't cherry pick them and give your interpretations of what happened in between to fill in the blanks.

I see you still refuse to look at the pictures I posted here that the jury will also see

Big football player flexing his muscles

What evidence shows Zim attacked the punk???

We know Zim was on his back and the punk was not

We know that the punk busted his knuckles punching something many times with both hands

We know Zim had injuries to his head and the punk did not

We know Zim called 911 and the punk did not

The jury will see whatever the defense shows them

It is up to the production to prove that Zim broke a law

<quoted text>He didn't.

The pedophile thug stalked and chased and the bottom line is: the pedophile jumped this teenager at night in the dark after chasing and stalking him for several blocks.

The pedophile thug was a short fat racist cop wannabee who convicted this boy for walking at night while being black.

The pedophile thug looks good in orange.
What evidence shows that???

<quoted text>The pedophile wannabe cop thug's only interest in this teenager was the color of his skin. The jury is going to be able to walk in the same footsteps as the boy and the pedophile as the state of Florida has already done.

The state will put the thug exactly on the spot when he was told to not chase this boy.

The state of Florida is going to put the racist pedophile thug in front of boy and the thug will have the gun and the truck is not going to be in sight.

We already know the pedophile is a liar.

Not according to the 911 tape..........LOL

Are you sure you know the sequence of events here? I get the feeling you're confused about what happened... probably because you inject so much of your opinion!

See the difference son? "Grabbed his weapon" suggesting that he didn't have his weapon on his person to begin with. That's injecting an opinion.
Ah! So what you're saying is he planned in advance and it wasn't an off the cuff decision?

Ok, I can accept that too son.

Chasing somebody is when you go after them and they take off running. Martin ran first and Zim followed to see where he was going so he could relay that information to police.
lol! That's your opinion son.

After all, whose to say Zimmerman didn't flash his weapon that started Martin's flight?

See, I can play your game too if you want to inject what happened!

Even as you are so stupid you stated the burden of proof is on the defense normal people know it rest on the prosecution

They must disprove the evidence that shows Zim was attacked
Zim was injured
Zim was on his back
The dead punk was on top of Zim
The punk had only offensive injuries to his knuckles
The punk was shot at point blank range

you're an idiot and a liar, go shoot yourself. The darky Traygone was followed becuase he was a criminal, like the other blacks who had been victimizing the neighborhood. Act like a law abiding citizen and no one will bother you. Likely you're a criminal in prison right now.
