My step-son is also a 'big black football player', 5 10 weighing in at 165. He'll be 17 next month, but he is still very much a kid in his thinking process. God, family, sports, girls, friends, and school in that order.
He of course wears his hoodies everywhere. He gets them as part of his uniforms from various sports.
When my son goes walking down the street, minding his own business, talking to his girl on his phone, wanting privacy, so even though it's raining, he's taking his time--Zimmerman (and idiots with the same thought process) would have seen him as suspicious.

<quoted text>Not until age 24-25. Be careful you will confuse these racist haters.

There is no getting around the fact that Trayvon was a child. It's a legal definition. A fact.

Of course the racists haters don't let facts interfere with their hate.
Is that why you can be in combat just months older than the dead punk???

<quoted text>Are you including those two scratches on the back of his head?

One of which was 2 centimeters and the other which was 0.5 centimeter?

The ones in which Doc Lindzee told him to wash with soap and water?

Are those two of the "injuries" you're talking about?

You should take a moment and see how long a centimeter is. You just won't stop laughing when you find out, cause I doubt if you truly know.
Injury is a injury

Perfectly legal to shoot black punks that attack you

But the broken nose and two black eyes are more severe

<quoted text>until the trial has been declared with a verdict i will wait to condemn a man to death without knowing the facts.

you sound like a dictator rather than a person who stands proud for democracy.you want to see zimmerman fry and you dont even consider giving him his day in court. why is that?

would you be so quick to judge like you are now if the shoe was on the other foot, and it was a black man who shot an unarmed white "child".
Exactly

<quoted text>He should have stayed in his vehicle son.
yeah i think to myself sometimes he should have just remained in the car and not played billy bad ass. but but theres only so much a man can take until he breaks. when he says enough is enough ,, i mean you can clearly here him losing his patience in the 911 call. he definitely did not want trayvon to get away and think that he might have let a possible threat to his community fade into the night..

how can we know if its murder or self defense. why do you continue to say you will be sending zimmerman extra blankets and kleenex as if hes guilty already before trial

you do believe in people having their day in court right be truthful be free?
I KEEP saying that?

How many times have I said it?

Why don't you come on out from behind your thrice-named self in three days. Who are you? You've been around a long time. Why the new look?

Anyways, if you've been listening to me for any length of time, you know that people having their day in court doesn't have anything to do with me.

That "presumption of innocence" thing is to be adhered to by the government, not me. I'm free to think as I pleased.

In this case, I know that the Thug Zimmerman went after a child who was minding his own business. I know the Thug went after the child who was running away from him.

I know that Thug Zimmerman went after the innocent child with a loaded weapon.

When you include his lies as well, it tells me that Thug Zimmerman deserves punishment for his crime.

But make no mistake...Thug Zimmerman is guilty of violating the Laws of Morality. Those laws are much higher than the laws of man.

And they carry no "presumption of innocence." Either you are guilty or you're not. It's that simple.

<quoted text>well it seems like a few douche bags on here believe that its a crime to do so. i call it having balls and george being within his rights to follow a possible street thug and prevent a robbery..

the most important part was that police were called by the defendant zimmerman.
The most important part was Thug Zimmerman killing a child.

<quoted text>exactly. it does seem as if trayvon the 6ft or taller "child" was doing bodily harm on zimmerman. i mean when you start to look at the facts weather you like it or not its leaning towards self defense or the gun going off. either way george wanted the baboon to get the hell off of him
You don't want anything negative to be said of your precious Thug Zimmerman, yet you take every opportunity to denote something negative toward Trayvon.

You're a Hypocrite. You're an Idiot. You're a Racist. You're a Damn Fool.

I shall treat you as I treat Here Is Stupid. If you don't know, just ask IT.

<quoted text>you are consistent on saying zimmerman went after martin because he was black.

you dont consider he was just being a concerned citizen and reporting another suspicious character

During the 18 months preceding the February 26 shooting, Zimmerman called the non-emergency police line seven times. On five of those calls, Zimmerman reported suspicious looking men in the area, but never offered the men's race without first being asked by the dispatcher.
If I'm consistent about what you say, point out a few of those posts.

I DARE YOU.

ok so you are one of those people to judge someone based on conflicting reports. put your crusty foot right in your already dirty mouth. you have no morals .. you actually just based your opinions on circumstantial evidence. and that is a filthy way to live. i think you should reexamine youre snooty post

How can you know if Thug Zimmerman is innocent? Because he said so?

HA!

You and him belong together. When Shellie gets locked up, he's all yours.

This is "yes" or "no" not time for being stupid, even if you can't help yourself.
