That's not the point. Trayvon Martin was not a thief and he wasn't acting suspicious. He was right outside his father's fiance's home. He didn't steal the Arizona drink or the Skittles and he didn't confront nor bother anyone. He was unarmed and speaking with a friend on his cell. He had every right to be where he was and GZ had no right to follow and spy on him. GZ has a history of paranoia and has had a restraining order taken out on him. Once he resisted arrest...a history of violence.

Please look at Zimmerman's picture and see if he doesn't look like a suspicious person to you.
Thank you
I must strongly disagree but appreciate your view on the case.. I have witnessed to many crimes happening here in south Florida. So yes i can admit that i am bias.. Based on data and evidence that supports my realization not paranoia of today's young black culture.

Its sad that trayvon did fit the description of recent burglary suspects and George felt he had a responsibility to be alert and he acted on it. The whole LEGAL argument is leading up to how can the state prove that George confronted and attacked Trayvon.

I understand that we all have our own personal beliefs.. I am not racist but i do see the ongoing problem within the black community just as i see the ongoing problem with whites committing pedophilia.

Majority of cases that involve violence,and burglary are committed by blacks. So i am not surprised that tryavon attacked Zimmerman,,especially after hearing the states star witness say that trayvon said this creepy ass cracker is looking at me..

Well, impeaching this witness means $h1t anyway. Cornerstone of Zimmerman attorney's opening statement has already been impeached!

_Zimmerman side claim self-defense because, they say, George shot Trayvon to stop the "brutal banging" of the skull of Zimmerman on the concrete path by Martin. Big F_ckng Lie!

_ Yesterday, State has introduced in evidence pictures of Martin's dead body on the grass, 6 to 12 feet away from concrete path. So, how did Trayvon's body get that far from concrete if George said he had to slide from under Martin's body to get up, as Travon was straddling him?

_ To believe Trayvon was on top on George when he got shot in the heart, you must also believe that Zimmerman was able to carry the dead body 6 to 12 feet from concrete path to the grass, were Trayvon's body was found..... or that piece of concrete George is talking about is still hidden in his lying ass????

That is hearsay because Trayvon Martin did well in school, was polite to one and all and 95 % of the kids in this country wear hoodies and buy Skittles and Arizona drinks.

Martin had a 3.8 grade point average. He was far from a hood of any kind.

He didn't look suspicious in the 7/11 and no one had ever tried to profile him prior to Zimmerman.

Was Martin an angel? Of course not but he he didn't start anything..he was minding his own business when Zimmerman went after him with a gun.
yuck

I believe the majority of thefts and some other crimes are perpetrated by minority groups. No argument there. However there is not one shred of evidence that TM went after GZ, in fact all the evidence points to just the opposite.

Not 1 foot away from concrete path.

1. Pictures presented as evidence, yesterday, have depicted Martin's body at 6 to 12 feet away from concrete (Trayvon's feet at over 6 feet away and his head at over 12 feet away from concrete)

2. If you are not another Fox News liar, please direct us to any piece of evidence showing Martin's body at 1 foot from pavement

3. Also, evidence show Martin's hands were guarding his chest wound and the whimpering cry had stopped after the shot; so, there was no more fighting after the shot to the heart, thus no (12-foot rolling) after the shot....

Please respond with facts.

Black criminals usually end up in prison anyway. We don't need vigilantes to kill young Negroes for future crimes they may end up committing!

_If Obama was born in the mainland, another Zimmerman would have already shot him like he did to Martin...

I see how T-Bagrz and Fox News folks think; they even do it to Obama.

They attack, even slaughter male Negroes, then go after their character using guilt by association

_ Young male Negroes, Endangered species in America, targeted by powerful Media like Fox News and their viewers and powerful politicians like T-party leaders and their supporters....

He was a proven thief:
In October, a school police investigator said he saw Trayvon on the school surveillance camera in an unauthorized area “hiding and being suspicious.” Then he said he saw Trayvon mark up a door with “W.T.F”— an acronym for “what the f---.” The officer said he found Trayvon the next day and went through his book bag in search of the graffiti marker.
Instead the officer reported he found women’s jewelry and a screwdriver that he described as a “burglary tool,” according to a Miami-Dade Schools Police report obtained by The Miami Herald. Word of the incident came as the family’s lawyer acknowledged that the boy was suspended in February for getting caught with an empty bag with traces of marijuana, which he called “irrelevant” and an attempt to demonize a victim.
Trayvon’s backpack contained 12 pieces of jewelry, in addition to a watch and a large flathead screwdriver, according to the report, which described silver wedding bands and earrings with diamonds.

Do you wander around in the rain a lot? Me, i head inside where it's dry.
Well, have you heard of Darrell Issa, the GOP crook who's been accusing Obama of all kind $h1t?

_Darrell Issa has been arrested several times for thing like car theft, arson and other stuff, but had a Zimmerman shot young (White) Issa to prevent future crimes, would society be kind to that Zimmerman?

Or are you and Fox News just proclaiming your full support for the systematic extermination of young Negroes in America?

You're part of the culture, you got it in for Zimmerman because he represents authority, because he worked with the police, and we all know how you guys feel about the police. Admit it!....you're willing to see an innocent man go to prison because you don't like him....sure, he might be an assho!e, maybe, but that's a far cry from being a murderer.

I don't want to see an innocent man go to prison, black, white, or brown!
