I think Jesse J. should worry about his son, daughter-in-law and the care of his grandchildren. After all he and she is off to jail.

Hey there idiot, what would be the probable cause to do the toxicology report on Zimmerman?
The shooting moron. In fact, it is standard procedure in most jurisdictions.

Zimmerman was under the influence of two drugs at the time. Both drugs cause aggression. By being under the influence he was in violation of the laws governing his concealed weapon's permit.

He was not legally armed at the time.

Martin family will clean up in civil court just on that fact alone.

90 degree shot pretty much requires both persons to be standing and both persons to be holding still and there to be adequate distance between the two so that the gun may not be grabbed by the victim.

Quit pretending Zimmerman was the victim. He is a coward, a liar, and a murderer and I am willing to say that to his face whether he is armed or unarmed.

[/QUOTE]You are a liar. He did not 'pursue'. He contacted a non emergency number about someone who looked suspicious...who happened to be high on pot. Someone said earlier Martin had liver damaged which is indicative of mixing skittles, cough syrup and tea to make lean. So it sounds like the kid had some mental issues if he was a cough syrup abuser and pothead. His paranoid behavior might have caused him to ambush Zimmerman but we know for a FACT Zimmerman could not have 'walked' up to Martin. It was dark and Martin's pig faced girlfriend claimed he was afraid of the 'white creepy ass cracker' so clearly he would have remained in the shadows of darkness. Martin chose to make himself known by ambushing Zimmerman by knocking him to the ground. While on top of Zimmerman, he was shot. The young thug was culled from the herd of racist thugs before he committed any more crimes. He had quite a rap list already at only 17.'Found' jewelry, indeed.

You are such a fcuking idiot, a toxicology report is not done unless there is obvious drug use. Fact is that during the post they found pot in Martin's blood stream. Now, please quote the departmental policy or general order that would require that toxicology report.
Or a violent crime, or a fight, and in many cases a car crash.

Given the fact that Zimmerman was under the influence, shot someone, ignored police personnel, and was in pursuit the entire time, they had more than enough probable cause to force him to pee in the bottle or take blood from him. In fact, it is grounds for termination that they didn't.

The FEMA camps are called WELFARE. Housing, food, clothing, child care, education.....the whole nine yards. It imprisons the stupid but empowers the govt.

Do you know anything about guns?....Now, I don't believe(I may be wrong)that there was any testimony about poder burs on Trayvons sweatshirt, t-shirt or skin but at that close encounter, chances are that the barrel was pressed against Trayvon's chest..Now, you can do a little experiment...You can use your finger,pencil or what ever while getting your ass kicked(Hey, I won't argue, GZ is a Pussy) and tell me how straight your aim is....
Would you hold still when a man has a gun pressed up against your chest?

Careful, if you answer you think Martin would have been forced to hold still, then Zimmerman had no justification to pull the trigger. If you think Martin wouldn't hold still, then the 90 degree angle is impossible. You lose either way.

Zimmerman claimed he shot Martin during the fight and that Martin went for his gun. Once again, that is discredited by the 90 degree angle of the wound.

What's right about killing someone? I would never sit here and justify what T. Martin did. The right thing for him to do would have been to get home as fast as he could. The right thing for GZ to do would have been to stay in his car and keep his distance to protect himself. If I were in that situation I would have kept my distance. Would you have stayed in your car?

Wow, you are a dumb as a stump because there was an expert with decades of experience who does this kind of thing every day who said Martin was on top of Zimmerman when shot. Seriously, are you really so stupidly racist that you can't face the truth?

Yes I do. One of those female to female hostility issues I think.

I think the defense attorney was playing on that possibility when he got confrontational with the judge.

When you double down and put all your eggs into one basket, you don't get to complain when you lose it all. Manslaughter and second degree murder was a real long shot considering that the only two eyewitnesses said they saw Trayvon Martin on top of Zimmerman, and that leaves the question, why would Trayvon Martin be the one wailing for help if in fact he was on top of Zimmerman?
Actually, there are other charges the state could file against Zimmerman without violating double jeopardy.

Illegal possession of a firearm resulting in death is one such charge.

Ive already done just that! Hallelujah! The law would cover me too if some savage hoodlum jumped out of the darkness one rainy night and tried to kill me! Maybe that is why I carry 2 45 cal handguns and know how to use them. Well in your case you could jump open wide and enjoy! hahaha You cant rape a willing victim!

But he had to have gotten out of his car unless you're saying that T. Martin attacked him in his car. He should have stayed in his car to protect himself. That would have made the most sense. There was no need for him to follow after T. Martin. I heard the tape of GZ's call and he said T. Martin was running and the operator asked GZ if he was following and indeed he was and the operator said there was no need. Why would GZ leave the safety of his vehicle to follow T. Martin? Do you feel that was wise? Couldn't he have driven to meet to police and never exited his vehicle?
