Post the links to your claims.
Like you posted link to the claim that the pedophile followed Martin boy for less than ten seconds, m/f c/s liar?

Or that the Martin boy was ever off the sidewalk? Until the pedophile tried to be a bad azz and detain him?

Having a gun and being prepared to use it made the "battle" easy for Zimmie.
Which furthers the point that he wasn't the aggressor. Now if he planned on using his firearm, he wouldn't have allowed himself to be beaten that badly before using it. He sure as hell wouldn't have called police either.

Correct

If Zim was out to kill the perp he would only have to tell the 911 operator that the perp was following him and the perp told him that he was coming to kill him

Zim could have the shot ashtray before the punk even hit him once

Wow......
Your only two true post and both in the same day

Correct
A jury is always instructed to but your heart or feelings aside and only look at the evidence

Thanks for agreeing that the jury did the right thing

And the evidence proved not guilty. She said he broke no laws. She said there should have never been a trial. She said it was a publicity stunt. Remember those words? You should add those words to your post. It makes it a little more accurate. Of course accuracy is not your strong point on this subject.

Now he has him hiding in the bushes.

Even though the pedophile attempted to detain this boy- who had every right to be exactly where he was at- on the SIDEWALK that ran between the row of houses.

ON THE SIDEWALK.

Did you ever ask yourself: what if it was your child who got stalked and jumped by a pedophile with an arrest record and a history of assault on the sidewalk and the pedophile claimed he was in fear of his life?
Please provide the proof that Zimmerman tried to detain the pos thug. We already know he was responsible for arrests in his neighborhood and never attempted to detain anyone. We will wait patiently for your proof. LOL.

Let's pretend. You are a cop assigned to patrol the project. You ask me to get out of my car and you check me and the car for an illegal gun. You find a gun. Hence, it takes guns off the street. Less guns on the street, less shooting.
It is prejudicial even if it us used in the inner-city. I will give you that. But who has the guns? If you lived there would you want the guns gone? Did you see the thugs who are charged with the recent shooting of 13 people in Chicago. One of those shot was a child, an truly innocent 3 year old.
Given the option are you saying that you would rather have the guns and not the stop and frisk? New York would, at least a judge would. So it is political correction rather than lives.
Obama said that he had been followed in a store. It is bad when honest black folks are suspected and profiled. Do you know who causes the profiling? IT IS THE CRIMINALS WHO CAUSE THE SUSPICION. TURN YOUR ANGER TO THEM. And if you are a have a male child it might be wise for you and momsie to advise the boy to hitch up his pants and try to portray the image of a honest young man instead that of the thug culture.
It's ironic to hear you supporting a program to stop and search for guns. You come across, in the majority of your posts, as "conservative", though that is, in itself, a form of categorizing. But, your statements, as they sit, would lead most to think you were a standard "Republican", "Christian", "right wing", neocom. Of course that would be the case with the "liberal", "left wing", "pinko", "Democrat" aka "Socialist Commie" types. What I'm saying is, that to judge another by our own concept is quite commonly the cause of having given no opportunity to the person we judge to demonstrate what sort of person they were.

In the case of the Trayvon Martin shooting, Mr. Zimmerman identified Martin as a suspicious looking person because he was young, black and wearing a hoody. Since burglaries had been taking place in his community by young blacks, apparently wearing hooded sweatshirts, he automatically assumed Martin was guilty. I can relate to being suspect for ones appearance. When I was younger, my long hair was constantly a factor in my being stopped and searched by policemen, especially at night, as I liked to take long walks in the evening. Though I wasn't guilty of anything, aside from occasionally possessing marijuana,(which was, I'm quite sure, the real reason for the police wanting to search me), but the same thing kept me from getting jobs and even being served in certain establishments.

So, long as people are routinely placed in groups by other people their will be hostility based on that practice. I was amused by your comments because the average, patriotic American gun owner sees any attempt at removing their weapons as a direct attack on their personal liberties, though many of them would be most supportive of any program that would allow police officers to take guns from young people, whether or not they were legally in possession of them. Of course, I might be categorizing with this conclusion, but we are all guilty at one time or another I suppose.

LOL! Do I remember those days. Same thing here.

My hair was long because it was the thing at the time and I played in a rock band, so it's kind of something you had to do in the 70's. But I can't tell you how many times I was stopped by a cop for being in the wrong place.

I used to deliver medical equipment which at times took us into the Cleveland projects. Even though in uniform, police would approach me and ask WTF I was doing there. A few times I had to escort him to my van where the company logo was painted just to prove I was working there.

I never blamed the police. I mean, a white guy in the east side of Cleveland in the projects? Very suspicious. Unless you are there for a drug deal or some other nefarious reason, it's a pretty dangerous place for a white guy to be.

I never put any blame on anyone but I didn't like the way I was treated and that was natural enough. On more than one occasion I was stopped and told I looked like someone who had just robbed a convenience store, though I was usually dressed in Britania corduroy matching suits and a tweed overcoat, in winter, or cutoffs and running shoes, usually because I was jogging. I told one officer the thieves must certainly be dressing odd for their robberies on one occasion and he did not think it was humorous. Another time I was coming home from a night out with friends, again, jogging, wearing a two piece running suit and was told I looked like a person who had just stabbed someone. I was handcuffed and my long hair was pulled out in the process,(caught in the cuffs), and I was threatened, told to shut up and referred to as a "punk" for asking why I was being detained,(without my rights being read by the way), and though I offered to take the officers back to where I had just come from and get proof from my friends I was telling the truth,they ignored me and hauled me off to a hospital where there were three drunk derelicts laid out on hospital beds in an emergency ward, all the time making remarks about my appearance. I was insulted that they even accused me, especially when one of the drunken bums said I was the guy who attacked them. They finally decided I was innocent because I wasn't covered with blood. I wanted to take the police department to court over that incident, but a student in one of my classes, at the time, was a lawyer and told me I would never win because the police covered for each other, and I'd be a marked man from then on for having had the audacity to try it. I've never really trusted the police since that time.

I know people have reasons for their predisposed assumptions about any group, but after having been through a terrifying experience like that by the people who are supposed to be protecting citizens, I've had a hard time keeping an open mind towards members of law enforcement in general.

Apparantly there's more of you numbnuts out there than a man can shake a stick at....which goes to my point,...blacks don't care that these gangbangers are getting their brains blowed out on the streets.
Why should they care?
Why should they care about drug dealers, thieves, rapists and murderers?
I wouldn't want anything to do with people like that no matter what color they were.
No self respecting human being would want anything to do with people like that.
I bet blacks wish these thugs were ALL dead!....because if they cared about these thugs they'd be looking for solutions,...and they wouldn't be blaming whitey,...or trying to tear up the Constitution,...and they certainly wouldn't be crucifying George Zimmerman the way they will continue to do.
And every time a new poster has come onto this thread seeking solutions and an honest debate, they get attacked by the same old numbnuts like you and the rest of your Klan.
You accuse others of doing exactly what you do. You attack anyone who has an opinion different from you. You call names like a schoolyard bully You're mean, hateful, a bigot an a racist. Now you're a hypocrite.

Of course, those of us who speak English know if someone gets out of a truck, tucks a firearm into his pants, and stalks someone else with the intent to stop and detain him, he would be the aggressor.

More so when we get to know what a polish fat greasy turn that this pedophile is.

No doubt he's a hero to you, Pinocchio.

That was the reason I decided to drop it. He told me he had a case against the police department going at the time and he knew he was going to lose,(which he did), and he was worried he was going to be a target as well.

There is no proof that Zimmerman had the intent to detain or did detain. He never detained anybody before. The pedophile is is no longer amongst us but his phone full of child porn is. Keep lying and making assumptions. It makes you look ignorant.
