Yeaho is a fat Polynesian pig eating princess who also loves to eat dog and most rank smelling fish. She's into animal abuse and liberal fellatio. Don't try to reason with the pig cause she's got a one track mind to go along with her one brain cell.
So just throw her a bone and hope she don't wrap her hair around it. She's still looking for the son she had from her false pregnancy.
lol! Yap! Yap! Yap!

" SANFORD, Fla.— Last August, Wendy Dorival got a call about setting up a local neighborhood watch. As the volunteer coordinator for the Police Department here, she gets such calls regularly, and the city already had at least 10 active watch groups. So she thought nothing of this call, from George Zimmerman.
She set up a visit for the next month at the Retreat at Twin Lakes, a gated community that had been dealing with a string of burglaries. When 25 residents showed up, a decent turnout, she had the residents introduce themselves; after all, people join the groups to look out for each other. She then gave a PowerPoint presentation and distributed a handbook. As she always does, she emphasized what a neighborhood watch is — and what it is not.
In every presentation,“I go through what the rules and responsibilities are,” she said Thursday. The volunteers’ role, she said, is “being the eyes and ears” for the police,“not the vigilante.” Members of a neighborhood watch “are not supposed to confront anyone,” she said.“We get paid to get into harm’s way. You don’t do that. You just call them from the safety of your home or your vehicle.”
Using a gun in the neighborhood watch role would be out of the question, she said in an interview...."
Maybe she should read about the case a little more. Zimmerman was not on neighborhood watch that night. He was on his way to the store when he spotted Martin.

Yes; Mr. Zimmerman was appointed on the neighborhood watch ... BUT; he gave himself the title of "Captain" ....
It was also against the neighborhood watch rules to carry a weapon .. due to liability ...
The FACTS are that Zimmerman wanted to be a cop and couldn't ..he had washed out on more than one occasion .. so he gave himself the title of Captain and carried a fire arm PLAYING like he was a REAL Law enforcement officer ...
The FACT is that is Georgie boy had remained in his vehicle as instructed by the Police Dispatcher .. and waited for the POLICE to arrive as instructed by the POLICE Dispatcher ... NONE of this would ever have happened in the first place ...
If Martin didn't wait for Zimmerman behind those houses to attack him, Martin would be alive today probably suspended from school again. And where do you people get this notion that the dispatcher told Zim to stay in his car? Don't you people even listen to the 911 tape before commenting on it, or do you just go by what other liars say about Zimmerman?

Well if that's the case, why did the HOA settle with the Martin's?

You are just like Clinton. " I did not have sexual relations with that woman" If you want sexual relations to mean intercourse, I guess you could say he was right. America is getting tired of the B.S. Read the PDF file. It's very clear Sanford police recognized Zimmerman as the watchman.
Zimmerman claimed he wasn't on duty the night he murdered Trayvon.

What does Clinton's sex life have to do with Trayvon's murder?

Settlements of this type are not that unusual. The cost of litigation is usually more than just settling. Let me give you an example:

A landlord in our city advertised his apartments with the exclusion of pets. He received a phone call from a lady that wanted the apartment, but had a cat. The cat helped her with her depression. The landlord refused to accept her application. Not long afterwards, another person called claiming his dog was needed for some other idiotic made-up mental condition, and again, the landlord refused to rent to anybody with pets.

A month later, he received two fines from the state--each at the cost of $2,500. So he called his lawyer.

The lawyer said that it's likely he can beat the rap. But the cost of two trials, the expense of traveling from Cleveland to Columbus, the appeals the state would likely exercise, he would be financially better if he just paid the $5,000 and wrote it off as a business expense. So that's what he did.

Nobody knows what the complex settled for. But whatever it was, it was likely less than dragging it out through court. In cases like this, people think with their wallet and not dignity.

It's a good thing I learned about this landlord case where state workers were sent out to act like potential tenants. I advertised my apartments and had the same thing happen to me. But because I heard of this landlord and his problems, I told the supposed applicant that I would accept pets for medical purposes, but I needed a prescription from a doctor and insurance to cover any possible damages their pet might do to my property. I never heard back from them. LOL!

Your claim was that Zim was not officially the neighborhood watch captain. I provided a reliable source that says he was. I proved you wrong. It's not a gray area.

Okay hot-shot. Here is the link to the unedited 911 tape. Your mission is to prove me wrong. Listen to the 911 call and give me the exact time-stamp on the tape where dispatch told Zimmerman to stay in his vehicle. I expect no reply from you:

Well; let's see .... NOT for sure if this is the complete 911 tape or a doctored version ....
ANYWAY at 2:30 the Dispatcher says ... "Are you following him ?" and Zimmerman replies, "Yeah, I am .. " Then; the Dispatcher says .."WE don't need you to do that." ... Zimmerman says .."OK" .....

So, "Hot Shot" or Dumb A**.. whatever you wish to call yourself ... what conclusion would YOU as a partially intelligent person draw from THAT ? STAY in your da* vehicle and do NOT Follow the suspect ... MARTIN ...

My point has been made ... If Zimmerman had not followed Martin ... as he was instructed ... None of this would have happened ..

Now; can you understand that ? Can't spell it out much more clear ...
Yeah

You're comparing a killing to rentals and cats and dogs?

If Zimmerman held on syg and was successful, the HOA needs to pay nothing.

So now you've gone from "Settlements of this type are not that unusual...." to they could have avoided it completely if Zimmerman really did stand his ground with the justice system.

You dance around the issue to make your points, but the facts really set a clear pattern of what's happening.
