Funny... the police investigators and the DA are asking the same question. And to further that point.... Ole GI Jane claims Trayvon made a grab for his gun.... yet Trayvon's DNA does not show up on the gun or on the holster.... but Janie's does.
And someone elses DNA as well, but they don't know who's. At least they didn't when I first read the report.

According to criminal defense lawyers, you are full of crap. If you are in my neighborhood and I think you are acting suspiciously I have the legal right to follow you. If you decide to initiate a physical confrontation by punching me in the face and breaking my nose and then pound my head on the ground,you are the aggressor and you have committed a forcible felony. If the victim of a forcible felony is in fear of great bodily harm or death, Florida law says deadly force may be used to stop that forcible felony.
A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in any other place where he or she has a right to be has no duty to retreat, and has the right to stand his or her ground, and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself ,herself or another, or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.

Sucker punching a person and Breaking his nose is a forcible felony and the assault on Zimmerman went on for over forty seconds.
Zimmermen didn't just follow Martin. He chased Martin for several blocks through the night with a gun and finally confronted Martin while never id-ing himself to Martin. You don't have the right to detain someone simply because you think they look suspicious.

The problem with your statement is Zimmermen is chasing Martin and Martin is running from Zimmermen. That makes Zimmermen the aggressor giving Martin the right to defend himself. Since Zimmermen is carrying the gun Martin would have the right to use deadly force against Zimmermen believing his life was in jeopardy, which obviously it was

He's not charged. Try informing yourself a little more.
if Zimmmermen is not charged with anything why is he in Court attempting to smear his victim. After beating his girl friend he did the same thing. Filed charges against her and tried to smear her. Zimmermen has a history of this. He has gotten away with it in the past and that seems to have embolden him. He is a short fat cowardly bully who used the law, guns and dogs to get over on and intimidate his victims. He had already received a number of complaints from residents about his style of patrolling on foot with his dog and gun. He had stopped a number a residents and questioned them. evidently he considered anyone he did not personally know to be suspicious.

Boca, i agree with the breakdown of events. However i don't think it would be in the best interest of George to say at any point that he was "following" trayvon. The best defense would be to state that the wind was blowing and that's what we can hear through the phone while George attempts to get a definitive location for the dispatcher to pass on to officers in route.
Yes, distort the truth.

Zimmerman himself said he was following trayvon. How do you propose to get around that? It can't be deleted from the tape.

Standing in front of someone and punching him the face isn't a sucker punch.

Stand in front of my way sometime, dr-bigtalk, and I'd be happy to demonstrate.

PS: your pedophile hero broke his nose when the gun he pulled (because he is a worthless chickensh!t) hit him in the face after pulled the trigger.

There is no law against trying to follow a person who appears suspicious to you. Logic says after calling police you would want to try to show them where that suspicious person is .
Both logic and NW rules say, don't follow a suspicious person, call 911 and let the police handle it.

That makes sense. Zimmerman punched himself in his face, breaking his own nose
The pedophile broke his nose with the recoil of his gun which for some reason he felt he needed to brandish.

The pedophile flunked out of cop school.

We can all see why.

How lucky we are he got no further than flunking out of community college.

Putting aside there was no crime at any time starting from the time the pedophile spotted the black kid cutting through his neighborhood: he wasn't charged with disregarding the orders of the police dispatcher.
He is charged with the unlawful killing that occured when the pedophile took it upon himself to pretend to be the police officer he wasn't.

Exactly. This morning I was trying to find out about the DNA and I was reading a article which stated that. I was not familiar with the site, but all the other info they had was correct so I am assuming it is.

I can't help the fact you are ignorant and don't know the law. That's your problem. It's easy to doubt others when you have no understanding of the law like you. Go take some classes and get a job in the field and you might learn something.

The state has the burden of proof moron. Their star witness was caught lying. Zimmerman's wife wasn't there so she can't testify to anything. Zimmerman doesn't have to testify either. Zimmerman's statements are supported by evidence. Like his injuries, Martins autopsy reports, witness statements. You know, real facts not like your ignorant imagination son.

<quoted text>Zimmerman killed Martin with a loaded weapon he used when he chased Martin son.

The killing isn't a tough sell. It's right there and it's undeniable.
The state already said they can't prove Zimmerman wasn't walking back to his vehicle or that Zimmerman attacked Martin. Keep trying son. Your testimony will not be needed son.
