Oh really? So, your claim is that Zimmerman stopped following Trayvon after the 911 operator advised/directed him to do so?
It that is the case then how could Zimmerman have come into contact with Trayvon, since Trayvon was walking away...unless Zimmerman continued to follow Trayvon?
Zimmerman has NEVER said Trayvon TURNED AROUND and came BACK towards him (Zimmerman). Therefore, Zimmerman had to have followed and physically confronted Trayvon. Which makes him (Zimmerman) the initiator, the aggressor and the perpetrator of the violence that night.
I suggest you go away, lest you make an even bigger fool of yourself than you already have.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
so the tooth fairy was at your house last night?

since when does anybody have authority to tell you not to protect your life?

and because a phone operator said something, we all must jump to it?

How about the brilliant dispatcher in Cleveland that answered the call from the girl kidnapped 10 years ago?

with such sound advice like that, we can cut the population in half in just a few years.

Trayvon turned around and picked a fight with a guy armed to protect himself. Sadly it cost him his life.

actions have consequences.....you best learn that fast.

Apparently you listen to other people instead of listening to the evidence yourself.
the media sells fantasy because it increases television ratings and network profits through advertising dollars.

the sheep believe in fantasy, because reality is scary.

you must blame someone for all your troubles, because this is the status quo in America.

"refuting advice"? Is English a second language for you?

..as if your relationship with your ex-wife has ANYTHING to do with this discussion.

When one can come up with no logical, mature, factually based argument to support one's position one is forced to fall back on childish, vacuous, inane, irrelevent blather. The hope being they can slyly "beg the question" and, thereby, avoid having to deal with the facts.

You, little fellow, are obviously firmly committed to behaving stupidly and embracing all kinds of brainless paranoia, deranged conspiracy theories and irrational beliefs. I suggest you try reading something other than the blabbering, slobbering nonsense your fellow traffickers in idiocy generate. You just might learn a few new things.

Things like....

…the earth is not flat.
…babies are not delivered by storks
…the drunk occupying the barstool next to yours in not brilliant simply because he agrees with your lunacy
…the moon is not made of green cheese
…repeating a lie over and over again will not transform it into the truth
…your squirrel hunting pals are neither great philosophers nor renaissance men
…the earth is not the center of the universe.
…the scrawlings on the bathroom stall walls of your favorite beer bars were not put there by visitors from other planets
…your toothless, shoeless, shirtless, illiterate uncle Ned is not a reincarnated wise man.
…libraries were not built for the express purpose of brainwashing you - it's okay to visit them.
..."Google" was not created for the sole purpose of helping you expand your storehouse of brainless fables and myths.

And lastly, contrary to what you may have been led to believe, objective research and formal education ("book learnin" in your jargon) are NOT dangerous contaminants.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

hey Dapper....I am not buying your advice, or sophomoric illiterate rant.

My formal education....1983 MBA, University of Colorado.

contrary to what you believe, if you punch an armed person in the face, expect a bullet in your head.

a life lesson free of charge adding years to your life.

I hope you learned something today, or tragedy repeats itself.

I learned today you are clueless regarding reality.

So, you're saying a single punch in the face, with no further aggressive behavior warrants a bullet to the head.

Well, let's explore this a little further...

How about a punch in the gut, with no further aggressive behavior?

How about a slap in the face...followed by no further aggressive/violent behavior?

How about an extremtly hard shove, with no further aggressive behavior?

How about if the puncher, slapper, shover is a female, or a teenager, or middle schooler?

So, if you're at a sporting event, or in a bar, or in the mall, or at a concert, or at the movies...a guy/gal starts arguing with you...people/friends get between the two of you...the guy/gal reaches over or between the people trying to seperate the two of you and delivers a punch/slap/shove. I suppose you're going to open fire...aiming for the person's head of course, because a bullet to the head is required, or to be expected, in such situations.

I don't believe I ever heard such a mindless line of reasoning publicly espoused. Your sub-human, brutish thinking is steeped in ignorance and violent barbarism.

And you want us to believe you possess and advanced degree from a respected univesity?

You are a sick, socially maladjusted, uncivilized, psycopathically violent, unthinking, murderous savage.

Good lord! You're crazier than a rabid skunk.

Did you listen today--including the interviews and the walk-thru?

Zim tried to deny having chased at all--claiming that the dispatcher wanted an address.

Despite believing GZ is guilty, dispatcher should have given stronger instructions.

"We don't need you to do that." Just, exactly, what does that "instruction" mean?

My wife doesn't "need me" to carry out the trash tonight. Tomorrow will be just fine.

Instructions from dispatcher were unclear.

According to the dispatcher's testimony, their protocol does not allow them to give such directions or orders. Hence the suggestive tone.

He said "OK" and the running noises (can be clearly heard on the tape) stopped. There is no evidence whatsoever that he continued to follow Martin after that point.
It that is the case then how could Zimmerman have come into contact with Trayvon, since Trayvon was walking away...unless Zimmerman continued to follow Trayvon?
Lots of ways. There's NO evidence to indicate which. One thing is clear though, Zimmerman stopped running (you can actually hear this on the tape), and spent the next three minutes on the phone with the dispatcher... while Martin was doing what, walking home? That was less than two minutes away at a walk, and we know from the tape that he started out running. The fact that he didn't make it home in those three minutes proves that he wasn't intending on going home, so what WAS he intending?
Zimmerman has NEVER said Trayvon TURNED AROUND and came BACK towards him (Zimmerman).
He can't say it if he didn't KNOW it. Martin could have cut in between buildings at three different places without Zimmerman seeing (Remember on the tape Zimmerman said: "I don't know where this kid is").
Therefore, Zimmerman had to have followed and physically confronted Trayvon.
Wrong conclusion based on facts not in evidence. Two people can walk a circle in opposite directions and meet half-way around, neither is "following" the other.

Had Zimmerman a) heeded the advice/instructions of the 911 operator and b) remained in his vehicle Trayvon Martin would be alive today and George Zimmerman would not be on trial for murder.
George Zimmerman put himself in this situation by making two critical, stupid decisions.
George Zimmerman belongs behind bars so he has no more opportunities to harrass, attack or kill another young black male who is doing nothing more than walking down the street minding his own business and bothering no one.
This is essentially what George ZImmerman's minset was that night...
"You haven't done anything, but I just don't like the way you look. I'm gonna jump out of my car and harrass and/or physically attack or manhandle you, and if you take exception to being harrassed, or resist being physically attacked or manhandled then I'm going to shoot/kill you."
...and yet many folks actually think George Zimmerman was in the right?
let's not forget that martin is a 17 year old child whom zimmerman out weighed. Maybe if the jjury would've been from ohio they would've sent zim to prison just so he could leaarn how to fight. I know I like my conceal permits but if we don't make an example of punks like zimmerman, kiss it goodbye on a federal level. Thanks florida.

Watched some coverage on Anderson Cooper.

Also testimony by the lady officer that such conflicts are not unusual. Both cops said he seemed straightforward, didn't see anything about his demeanor that alarmed them. One even said he believed Zimmerman. Also Pretty bad when the prosecutor badgers his own witnesses.

Also a mistake by prosecutors was showing the interviews. They just introduced his self defense defense without Zimmerman having to take the stand. Just as I said would happen if you'll remember.

Speaking as devil's advocate, If the prosecutors had been smart, they would have held off on those interviews, thus forcing Zimmerman to testify to self defense, then they could have used them on cross to rebut his testimony. it would also been closer to the end of the case, thus fresher in the jury's minds... It's almost like the prosecutor was trying to throw the case.

I really can't see where reasonable doubt has been overcome, and there aren't that many witnesses left.

Serino, the Lead Investigator pretended to have some "evidence" ready to spring. They had discovered he said, video footage of the events that evening. The defense asked,“and what did Zimmerman say when you told him that?” He said, "THANK GOD” Serino answered.

The last O’Mara question of the day, the last words the jury heard to take with them into the evening recess, could only be characterized as catastrophic for the State’s theory of the case. Looking directly at the man who had been the chief investigator on the case, who had possessed access to every bit of evidence of any sort, who had interviewed, and re-interviewed, and re-re-interviewed–applying increasing pressure from each interview to the next–O’Mara asked him:

“Do YOU think George Zimmerman was telling you the truth?”

Serino's succinct answer:“YES.”
