Was OJ arrested and out on a million dollar bail??
Did OJ walk??
Tell us how you know the state has the goods on Zim when you can't tell us what the goods are??
Please don't make a fool of yourself and say Zim admits to shooting the poor little child..........LOL
what evidence do you know about that proves it did not happen like the evidence I have shown confirms it did....????
There is no Bond for Capital Murder in California.
The 'goods' are Zim shot a 17 year old unarmed young man who was not breaking the law and special prosecutor believes Stand Your Ground Defense did not apply, as does the Author of the "Stand Your Ground" law in FL.
Those are the goods.

Cute duck and dodge.........LOL
the dead perp did tell his GF that he was right outside his house a few minutes before he ran into Zim..
But the dead perp was walking away from his house.......70 yards away from his House..........
Do you really believe a jury is going to buy the scared little child running home???
His football pictures will be shown
Specially the ones where he is shirtless, flexing his muscles and making a "kill you face"
Don't look like no child to me........LOL
Does look like a big thug that would slap you for looking at him.........
Nearly 6' tall and 158 LBS. is not a big thug, hell thats a zipper.

even if zimmerman is the monster that you guys say he is. then tell me where is the strongest
point of the states case.
what evidence will blow the defense right out of the water...
credibility is a factor. however pictures of zimmermans injuries dont lie.
Florida LAW
Credibility IS a factor and Zimmie lost his when he and his wife lied to the Court about the money they were laundering from certain accounts and pleading Indigent so the taxpayers would pay the tab for his defense, and lying about having a Passport other than the one he surrendered to the Court.
Zimmie doesn't have any credibility.

The evidence shows a big mean football player knocked Zim down and out and then jumped on top of him and continued to beat Zim until Zim was forced to shoot the punk

What evidence does the prosecution have that proves different??????

None..........LOL

The bullet wound track was in a steep up and slightly angled proving Zim was not standing in front of the perp when he was shot....

Grass stains prove Zim was on his back struggling and the perp was not

The witness says he saw two men fighting on the ground one on top of the other

Zim was beaten and the perp was not

Zim walks and you burn down your hood

Probably. There had to be a reason his daddy asked them not to give him a tox screen. They always give the shooter a tox screen even when it is a cop doing the shooting.
But, Robert Zimmerman and state attorney Wolfinger are good friends so Zimmerthugman received special treatment.
No special treatment at all. They didn't give Zim a toxicology test because they didn't suspect he was under the influence of anything. Google Wiki and read all about it.

Before I am attacked, I am referring to Narcissistic people who believe the law does not apply to them. People who continually push the envelope, until they finally go too far and have to face up to the fact that sometimes they have to pay, like the rest of us peasants.
Absolutely. That's why Martin is dead today; pushed the envelope.

Who can beat someones head into the concrete and injure the ring finger only on one hand. Autopsy report does not even state whether or not it was a knuckle. I could check again, but it is unlikely only one small abrasion occurred from banging someones head into the cement with one hand.
When you bang somebody's head into the cement, you don't do so with your knuckles--you take your hands and pull the head back and forth into the cement.

You can give Zimmerthugman a pass for underage drinking, shoving a cop, assaulting a cop, etc but you can't give Trayvon a pass for walking home carrying a can of tea and a bag of skittles and violating no laws? Trayvon was barely 17 when he committed the evil act of walking while black. Zimmerthugman was almost 21 when he assaulted and battered a police officer, while he was breaking the law by underage drinking.
As Ronald Reagan once famously said "There you go again."

Walking while black, huh? And what evidence do you or the prosecutor have that race had anything to do with this? Don't know? Then perhaps you should read the FBI report when they went to investigate possible racial motives in this shooting. They found none, so I would really like to know how you are better educated in this case when it comes to racial motives than the FBI sent to Florida by racist Eric Holder.

Walking around with a can of tea and Skittles is not against the law. Assault and battery is. It's also a reason for a justified shooting. Martin didn't live there, Zimmerman did. He paid rent and taxes in that community. He had more of a right to be where he was at than Martin did.

What is a Marin People? I gave you the Police Report and Court Docket, XX. Zim was charged with a Felony, Resisting an Officer With Violence and Battery on A Police Officer.
He was charged another time with Domestic Violence.
He was terminated from a job in NY, where he worked as Private Security for throwing People against a wall at a party.
Pretty bad when a Security Guard is terminated for attacking the guests. Aren't they supposed to have a cool head and not let anger get the best of their senses? Just the type of individual who should not have a gun. Hair trigger temper??
There is no charge such as "pushing a cop." But that's all Zim did, push a cop. It was a nothing charge and you guys try to make it out like he jumped on a police officer and broke his jaw. Geeze.

Zim was never charged with domestic violence. His ex-girlfriend filed a restraining order against him and Zim filed one against her. He was never arrested for domestic violence or charged with it. It was a lovers quarrel, that's it. Her claim was that Zim hit her yet she never called the police or had her supposed injuries looked at by a hospital or doctor. In other words, it was a lie.

If your "evidence" is so undeniable, why all the postponements? Why not let a jury decide now?
Hint: Because the state has the goods on Zimmerthugman. That is real evidence, not your opinion of what happened.
What real evidence do you speak of here? Name one thing the state has to charge Zim with murder. And no, a dead body is not necessarily murder, it can and is (in this case) self defense.

I'll answer your question again about the trial delays: His lawyers are still gathering evidence. They recently got a hold of Martin's school records and are working on his cell phone. It would be unprofessional and stupid to gloss over possible evidence because you think it's an open and shut case. You gather as much evidence as humanly possible when defending a client of murder charges.

When a motion is requested for a delay in trial, you have to present why that delay is needed. Then the judge decides if the request has merit. Obviously, the judge believes more time is needed for the defense, otherwise the delay would not be granted.

Now what was he charged with for 'just pushing' a cop? Did he leave any bruises, cuts, scrapes, or bleeding after this 'simple push'?
Nope, nothing. You are not allowed to lay a finger on a police officer for any reason. If you do, you can face charges as well even if there was no harmful intent.

You're not allowed to lay a finger on an innocent kid for any reason either. The charge is battery. If he would commit battery on a cop without leaving any evidence of having done so, why insist he couldn't have started the altercation with Martin without leaving a mark?

Sure you are. The reason of assault and battery. Zim had no reason to attack Martin. If that was his plan, he sure as hell wouldn't have called police. It's apparent Martin didn't call them.

Martin had no injuries to even suggest Zim started a fight with him. Nothing. Zim has several injuries to prove he was assaulted with no ability to defend himself except for his gun.

The pedophile was a racist and made his mind up before he got out of his truck that the teenager he was stalking was guilty.

That's from the words that came out of the pedophile's mouth.

You do know the state of Florida is going to play those tapes?
