<quoted text>that "BOY" as you call him was a known criminal already! did you forget that he was in the gated community because he had been suspended from school again???? do you remember why he was suspended???? he had drugs,womans jewelry and a screwdriver in his backpack....zimmerman saved all those homeowners from being victimized by that thug rat.
You need to look up the word criminal and tell us how it more appropriately applies to Thug Zimmerman.

Remember, then-Chief Bill Lee and the Sanford Police Department has already said that Trayvon, the child who was minding his own business, didn't have a criminal record.

What info you got that they don't?

Thug Zimmerman saved no one from nothing. Let's see how he can save "all those homeowners" from a special monthly assessment.

They will be happy about that. Very happy, indeed.

<quoted text>Yeah,,, Race was made a major issue when President Obama said "if i had a son he we look like trayvon". Bringing up race was done when the liberal networks wanted to play judge jury and executioner, when the new black panther party put a bounty on zimmerman, when spike lee sent out addresses, when al sharpton spewed his typical hate.
Playing "judge, jury and executioner" is what Thug Zimmerman actually did.

Keep up.

Now be fair.

Being "around" a courtroom means he "almost" went to law school and is "pretty close" to being a lawyer so he has "just about" an educated opinion.

You are correct.

If only he was a member of the Horseshoe Club.

Then his failure of true potential wouldn't be a total waste.

It didn't have a thing to do with his race, you ignorant racist bigot.
It had to do with a parent - and aobve all other things, Obama is a parent- dealing with- empathy- the loss of a child.
Parents around the US- without regard to color or age- understood exactly how he felt and what he meant.
I understand why it would go past you.
Obviously, the pedophile apologists are not interested with this loss- displayed by the blame the victim response over the last year.
I think it did have to do with race, and I think he was right in making it about race (and empathy as a parent).
Every time I here about injustice because of skin color, I sit down with my boys, 8 & 16, and I remind them that because of the color of their skin, some people will pre-judge them, so they have to be extra alert and careful in certain situations.
While the pre-judgment (profiling) of Martin focused on the fact that Martin was Black and fit a vague discription (young, black, male) of previous troublemakers, pre-judging anyone, could result in the same.

Let's see if the pedophile will plea out, the state of Florida has his tiny testicles in a vice.
Don't think Zimmerman was ever charged with a sex crime. Try reading the actual facts I posted earlier idiot.

You also left out he shot a low life thug that attacked him and was trying to bash his brains out on the sidewalk. It's in the report and supported by autopsy reports, witness statement, and photos of Zimmerman's injuries. Oh I forgot you don't consider evidence just color.

<quoted text>Yes,, you continue to post facts,, While "they" continue to post opinions and make bias claims. Why is it so hard for them to identify with a man being vigilant to keep the community safer.There is no evidence that supports the claim of zimmerman attacking martin. Zimmerman did the right thing by contacting the non emergency police line. He did the right thing by trying to get an exact location of the suspicious person.

I think some people just have a major problem and take great offense to the the fact that martin was profiled as suspicious.
Well there had been numerous break ins in that community and Martin fit the description of one of the suspects. Absolutely nothing wrong with calling the police when you see a person in your community that you're not familiar with and matches descriptions of a suspect. Absolutely nothing wrong with trying to see where they are going so you can relay the information to the police. If they attack you and try to kill you there is nothing wrong with protecting yourself. He will be acquitted. I suppose some on here would lay there and die.

Funny how it seems the pedophile apologists keep forgetting the SATE of Florida has looked at ALL the evidence and believes the pedophile to be guilty.

If only the pedophile could come up for an explanation for how he found himself on the sidewalk three blocks from his truck.
Funny how you are an idiot in believing that Florida has found him guilty. You're really stupid.

The state of Florida is going to use you as a witness to explain your fantasies: they are going to follow the footsteps of this boy going from his house to the the store and returning home and they are going to map exactly where the pedophile turned his truck around and stalked him and exactly the path the pedophile took to intercept and assault the boy on the sidewalk in front of his house.

And the state of Florida is going to warm up the stage by showing America something everyone already knows: that the pedophile zimmerman and his ugly fat wife are liars.
There was no stalking. You're still an idiot.

If I were you I wouldn't go around bragging about how many years you've been in the courtroom (as an officer of the court or criminal). The things that have come from you by way of your posts indicate that you haven't learned much.

A eight year old can tell us more about the American legal system than you can. You do remember your many shortcomings, right?

You should have stayed buried in the cemetery of stupidity.

Oh well, at least you can laugh at yourself. We are.

You are of very little substance.

(Also read note at end of this post, smarty pants).

Your schoolyard taunts do not bother me. It just exposes you even further. Earlier you called me a racist, even though I said absolutely nothing about race.

And now you liberally use the word stupid. Your posts are indicative of the ways of Here Is Stupid. You two are joined at the skull. Too bad there's not even one mind between the two of you.

Neither of you are to be taken serious. One brags about killing other people and the other brags about how much he knows about the legal system.

HA!

One needs instructions on killing mosquitos. The other needs beginner courses about the American legal system. What a tag-team pair you two make.

From now on you both shall be known as the World Tag-Team Heavyweight Champions of Stupidity.

You both should square off in a cage match for the singles championship.

Nothing you just posted makes sense. How stupid. If you want to talk about math a great example would be the idiot Obama meeting with ignorant Al Sharpton to discuss the economy when Al hasn't paid his back taxes. There was no mixed signals given by Zim and I am sure he had plenty of security when he went on the show. Who wouldn't have a little fear when your life has been threatened by those idiots in the Panther party.
You are the stupid one. Everything she said would make sense if you knew anything about this case. It's been all over the news media.

You don't know anything about any signals given by Zimmerthugman because you're too stupid to know what's going on. You make stuff up to suit your prejudiced theories.

Are you too stupid to keep up? Yes!!!!!
