My point is that if you are so willing to believe the on scene investigators concluding that martin didnt have a weapon ,,then why are you unwilling to believe the rest of the investigation.
I believe the investigation carried out by Special Prosecutor Angela Corey and her investigators from the FDLE.

Now, your point is laughable. The Sanford Police Department will not put together a report that is Lie after Lie after Lie. That is not how it works, naive one.

If ANY police department dared to do that over and over they would find themselves under a federal consent decree so fast, their heads would literally spin.

The SPD investigation was inept and immoral. Don't look now, but they've got a new permanent chief. I hope he cleans house. Ex-chief Lee was only one part of the problem. Many more exist in that department.

If you're waiting for me to give the Sanford Police Department any props, don't hold your breath.

Sorry, I mean...

Hold your breath.

Awesome Dude!.....Totally Awesome!.....If more individuals had the guts that you displayed when the gang-bangers confronted you, this kind of crime would practically be non-existent.

The criminal element goes ballistic whenever somebody dares to stand their ground and stand up to these violent criminals who plague our society. They always portray these violent offenders as "children" as they are now doing in the Martin case.

Yet Martin was old enough to legally join the military. And he was old enough to legally have sex with a 23 year old in the State of Florida.

He was hardly a child.

He was a violent young adult who messed with the wrong person. It's refreshing to know there are people like you out there who refuse to be intimidated when confronted by evil. These vicious attacks would dramatically cease if more people fought back. These gang-bangers wouldn't be robbing and killing as they are doing now.

That's why the liberals are trying to disarm the law abiding citizens in this country. Criminals do not respect or abide by our laws or our Constitution. They would be the only ones who would be armed if our Constitutional Right to keep and bear arms were to be eliminated.

Congratulations on your body count.

There's nothing quite like a confirmed kill.

Thank you for your service.
If more people armed them self and stood up to these animals the streets would be safer

Trayvon is dead and rightfully so. Zimmerman was beaten and had to defend himself from a feral savage black animal who could not control his inner bred savagery.
The world is a much safer place with people like Trayvon gone

Congratulations to Chicagoland!

This week Chicago passed the rest of the world’s cities combined in murders!

It sure is a good thing Chicago has a gun ban ...

... only knows how many would be dead if guns were allowed in the city!

Chicago’s gun ban has exactly the same results as other gun bans. It gets people a lot of people killed. Liberals love to believe guns are the problem and not the person using it to commit crimes. To paraphrase Mayor Rahm Emanuel (may attendance at lots of funerals be upon him),“never let liberal ideology get in the way of fact!”

Since the gun ban isn't exactly cleansing the Windy City of crime, maybe they should start banning young, black males from the city.

Police records show black males are the culprits using evil guns (probably semi-automatics, too!) to kill.

Or maybe Chicago should just ban trigger fingers on its citizens?

Yes dumb dumb. We all know what George is being CHARGED with. The state has to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt to get a CONVICTION . So far there has not been any rock solid evidence,just speculation and that will not convince a jury .

I also want to say that the states star witness just took a major fall from grace by lying under oath. Can you get that through your simple minded head that her credibility is shot.

Try to keep up

As soon as you share yours about Thug Zimmerman's LIES.
After all, Thug Zimmerman is the one who is charged with murdering a child who was minding his own business.
It is his actions, not the actions of someone hundreds of miles away, that caused him to be charged with murder.
The scareddy cat was so scared that he decided to ignore the advice of law enforcement. The scareddy cat was sooooooo scared that he dicided to follow the innocent kid that he was sooooooo scared of.
He tells the 911 operator that Trayvon was "running away" from him. But on the Hannity/ThugZimmerman/O'Mara Entertainment-Fundraising Hour, he tells a different story.
Lets not even mention how old he says he thought the innocent child was. His LIES and actions bring into question every and any thing he says. His credibility is shot.
Witness 8 is not on trial and not the cause of Thug Zimmerman following, shooting and killing an innocent child. The cause of that would be that LIAR, Thug Zimmerman.
Since you want to harp on who is lying, start at the prime suspect. And once you resolve his LIES, I guarantee you that any one else's lies that you want to harp upon will seem so trivial.
Give it a try.
Have you ever retold a traumatic event? If you did, you would know that it more than likely to mix up minor details like that. You are not thinking that you have to keep track of all the details when this event is occuring. Have you ever been a victim in any kind of event -criminal or civil?
If you 've been a victim, you will know that remembering details may not be as easy for some. You may describe something a little differently the next time and it has nothing to do with guilt or trying to lie. It's one thing to say you were in the hospital the day of a funeral when it isn't true...that's a blatant lie. It's quite another to tell a 911 operator a suspect is running away and not remember the details of the evening as vividly days, weeks or months later. Stress most certainly impacts memory as well.

We all know what you think happened to Martin and we all know the reality. You have been presented with new questions about this case and refuse to address them. So, the star witness lied about her age and her whereabout. Most of us knew she was questionable when she never bothered to call police after she claimed there was a fight and the phone went dead. Wouldn't you think Dee Dee would be concerned for her sweet YOUNG boyfriend? This older woman may have had another kind of involvement with Martin but it probably had more to do with something criminal--based on her reaction that evening and her lies. Why would you lie unless there was something to hide?

Before you answer...please think hard. There is a difference between lies and remembering the details of a traumatic event that happened months ago. Zimmerman has gained nearly 100 pounds since the shooting so obviously the guy is under intense stress due to the threats and the fact he can't even go outside without fear of being killed. With crazy people like you spewing your hatred before all the facts are revealed, it's no wonder he has to hide.
