What is the Florida Statute that you claim he was not obeying?
You mean they don't have one against following a suspicious black casing homes?

One more time--no response to the question.
Where is the evidence to link Trayvon to the injuries?
Expect it to come up in court again and again and again.
The only tie between Trayvon and those injuries is the story that Zimmerman has been telling. And the only one who can tell that story in court is Zimmerman. And if he takes the stand he is going to have to account for all the mismatched things that he said and the difference between the story and the evidence.
And don't expect any softball Sean Hannity interview.

<quoted text>So you're saying that right after Zimmerman killed Ashtray, he self-inflicted his wounds before the police got there?
You are mentally ill.
No--I think it more likely that he scraped himself up cutting though bushes between the houses in pursuit of Trayvon. One witness also reported seeing one person laying on the ground (the kid who then went to chase his dog). Entirely possible that Zimmerman tripped/slid/fell down the embankment--having walked down the sidewalk in front of the houses and then cut into the dogwalk area having spotted Trayvon.

Those are theories. However, they account for the level of injury as well as the fact that none of Zimmerman's blood or DNA was found on Trayvon's hands or sleeves, as it would certainly be if Trayvon pushed down on Zimmerman's broken and bloodied nose and mouth with his full weight trying to prevent Zimmerman from calling out (as Zimmerman claims).

There have been some folks found innocent who I was sure did it. Trials are never guaranteed, despite your gut feeling. I would at least acknowledge that this might not go your way, Reader. If the glove don't fit...

So he fell going through the bushes and falling down the embankment...twice. Once for each side of his head, right?

<quoted text>Oh, so now Obama is in control of all media outlets??? If so, why doesn't he stop the negative stories about himself, his family and his policies?? If he arranged for Zimmerman to be incorrectly identified as a White Male, certainly he can arrange for negative articles to cease and also put a positive spin on anything he does. Come on, H. N. You can do better than this. You're slacking in your game. This is the result of the media's failure to properly investigate a story and nothing more. They heard the name "Zimmerman" and just assumed it was a White Male. Had they done their journalistic duty, they would have learned that he was Hispanic. But everyone wants to be the first to report a story, so no one digs any deeper. As with the Rodney King case, if State charges aren't filed, Federal charges can be. It's called a federal violation of civil rights. Oh, and to save yourself some time, the Rodney King case was in '91 under George H.W. Bush and Thornburgh as the U.S. Attorney General - both Republicans. Please challenge us with something else.
Some of the folks in the media are getting a little mad at obama for spying on them with a branch of our govt. Really sick, but expected.

Hmmmm whiskey eh.

Tempting, but scaring kiddies is not in my repertoire.

Besides, I am pretty busy with the free pizza biz these days.

It doesn't much matter what caused the injuries. What matters is whether or not they were caused by Trayvon. Got any evidence along those lines?
The issue is not that there is a statute against following (although given the situation, Zimmerman's gun and the warning from the police that they didn't need him to follow, seems like it might contribute to depraved indifference). The issue is that Zimmerman was following and Trayvon--according to Zimmerman's words on the NEN call--was seeking to get away from Zimmerman. Not the other way around.
Further, Zimmerman's words--even if you believe that his wording was "punks"--indicated anger and a belief that some elusive "they" always get away. Apparently one of the audiologists who just submitted a report also picked up the words "but not from me" following that lament. Zimmerman was following Trayvon with an excited intent to see that he not get away.
Zimmerman quit following and Trayvon vanished. it isn't possible to follow someone who has vanished, is it? Zimmerman did go to the back gate to meet the police and along the way he was jumped and attacked. Witnesses heard the altercation and even saw Martin on top of Zimmerman. The screaming sounded very much the way Zimmerman sounds. I am still curious about the kid that was waiting for Martin to return. The shooting happened right outside his door. He had to know something happened which is why I have to wonder why his mom and Martin's dad were clueless. How would they not be aware of a shooting? Why were they not concerned about Martin who was supposed to be going on a short trip to the store?Since he didn't know anyone in town, it seems very odd his father never bothered to call police when he didn't come home. He had to know about the shooting because the kid who had to have seen it since he was only a few feet away. I'll bet they knew what happened and figured there was some big money in the wings for this. And they were right about that!

No one knows what happened that night except Zimmerman and Martin. And Zimmerman made sure that Martin can't tell his side.

However, based on all the available information, a very real possibility is:

1. Zimmerman and Martin came face to face.(Doesn't matter who approached who.)
2. Harsh words were exchanged.
3. Zimmerman showed his gun to frighten Martin.
4. Martin, fearing for his life, made a decision to "Stand His Ground" and attacked Martin.
5. Zimmerman used his weapon to shoot (murder) Martin.

As I said, nobody knows for sure but Zimmerman. I could be wrong, but so could you. At least I'm willing to admit it.

As I said earlier I believe it is most likely Martin was the one standing his ground. I've also stated that it is possible that I am wrong.

What I don't understand is why you are so willing to just take Zimmerman at his word. What is it that makes him unquestionable to you?

There are all kinds of "real possibilities". You have to exclude all reasonable possibilities of innocence in order to find guilt.
