Following a suspicious person is not starting the confrontation.
Standing in front of a person on a sidewalk between him and his house is starting a confrontation.

Putting your hands out and grabbing them is an assault.

If you listen you can hear him stop after told that "they don't need him to do that".
If he stopped, he would have been twenty feet from the front of his car.

And he continued to chase after Martin after he was told (and he agreed he would not) to wait for the cops en route.

Then you better get down to court and tell the prosecution you have this evidence that Zimmerman started the confrontation.
Just after you prove that the pedophile only followed Martin for no more than ten seconds.

I guess you keep forgetting you told us that.

You keep mentioning his supposed pedophilia, convicting him without a trial.
He was arrested for being a pedophile, he was arrested for shooting this boy in the chest.

As far as being a child molester, we have the word of his cousin and we have his word.

And we are absolutely certain that the pedophile zimmerman is- above all other charges- a liar.

You don't want to pretend he ain't?

I know now that you will be vigilant on black on white crime. Am I right? Will you reach out for all justice? For all the victims that we never read or hear about. But they are there. Lots of pretending going on by lots of people I tell you.

The next question is why does the Negro stink,,,yes they stink. If your eyes are closed and a Negro is near,,,you can tell that the stinking person is a Negro. This is not a racist question but a fact,,,the Negro stinks. Next question,,,why canīt most Negros speak English ?? You would think they would have learned English by now.

My problem with this whole trial is that it is very obvious that they overcharged Zimmerman. I am not familiar with Florida law but he very well may get away with the whole thing.
He definitely should.

You might want to let the state know because they already said they can't prove Zimmerman started the fight.

<quoted text>The 200 pound pedophile had the 160 pound boy in his grasp.

Ever try to run with a 200 pound butterball attached?

Martin wasn't chasing the pedophile, the pedophile was chasing Martin.

Martin didn't assault the pedophile next to the his truck, the pedophile assaulted Martin over a block away on the sidewalk in front of the boy's house.
Wrong again. He wasn't 200 hundred pound on that night. You want us to believe the short guy ran down and caught the football player. LOL. Only an idiot would believe that.

And he couldn't even do THAT right, violating the terms and conditions of the Neighborhood Watch that he pretended to be a "captain" of.

So we have a SHORT fat racist turd who see's a black boy cutting though "HIS" neighborhood and the short fat racist cop wannabe decides **HE** is going to show the local PD how *HE'D* handle it.

And prove all the people who saw him as the unemployed LOSER he was and is wrong.
Yet you forget he done this numerous times and was responsible for arrests in his community. Also not one time did he attempt to apprehend those suspects in those cases. You're welcome.

2ND DEGREE MURDER....25 years to life.......MANSLAUGHTER....no more then 30 years. According to looking up his penalty for a guilty result. A conviction means he will see a minimum of 25 years since there is a 2ND DEGREE MURDER CHARGE and nothing else.

<quoted text>They are the people breaking into homes in that complex. What's wrong with "they?"

Defending oneself with a firearm is not a car accident. Years ago, innocent people felt victimized not only by their assailants, but by the laws as well. If you defended yourself with a firearm, you could face charges for protecting yourself and end up in jail. If you didn't protect yourself, you could be beaten to death or killed.

The outrage of innocent people and concerned politicians changed all that. They began giving more rights to the innocent than the criminal. The results are that gun violence and violent crime in general on a decline since the mid 90s, and continues to decline today.

In my state of Ohio, we recently enacted the Castle Doctrine. Our Castle Doctrine states that you have every right to use deadly force against an intruder. It also protects the homeowner from civil suits. Before our Castle Doctrine, you were obligated to leave your home if there was any escape out of your home when an intruder broke in. If you couldn't leave your home and killed the intruder, you were technically arrested and had to go to court to prove your innocence. Even after that, the family of the intruder could still sue you, or the intruder could sue you if you didn't kill him, or perhaps if he slipped on a rubber ball that your child left in the living room and hurt himself.

The point is you can't penalize people for defending themselves even if they took a life(s). That puts us back at square one where law abiding people are at the disadvantage of the criminal. The bad guys are out to get them, and the good guys are out to get them.
There is obviously criminals on here that want law abiding citizens at a disadvantage.

Never arrested for a sex crime. Try getting real facts. So far the evidence supports his statement. Think I will go with his word since the evidence fits.

Obviously you are the RACIST and I'd imagine, have a 2nd or third grade education from the Klu Klux Klan Elementary School of the Alabama Swamplands ....
From the way you talk / write ; I'm wondering if you have ever held a legal JOB a day in your life , I seriously doubt it ....
Just so you know ; when I was working with the churches ; I NEVER took one dime for any of my services ...
I look at the FACTS in the case ; not just the color of a person's skin ... and like I said before ... IF Mr. Zimmerman had followed the rules and his training ; and did not follow, did not confront, and did not have a loaded weapon ..He would not be on trial today .
lol...I am not a racist, and a real Reverend would never accuse me of being a racist. Your bias in the face of the facts and the evidence that hs been released so far is unquestionable. no reasonable God fearing person would libel an innocent man whose life hangs in the balance by people like Al Sharpton, Rachel Jeantel, Sabrinna Fulton, Benjamin Crump, and the rest of the Black leadership and the bloodsuckers and the lynch mob.

Face it, you are the one who is racist, and vile, and willing to throw an innocent man under the bus because of the overwhelming racism that exists in your congregation,...because all you can do is nurture it...Sure beats working for a living, eh?

You are a coward and an abomination in the eyes of the Lord....and not once have you condemned the overwhelming amount of black on white murder,...yet you focus in on a white man who was defending himself against a brutal attack by a black man and was forced to shoot him in order to save his own life.

But I'm not a cruel cold hearted vindictive person like you are, so I shall pray for the deliverence of your soul.
