Probably not dead, but he would have been beaten up more. I think Zimmermann ended up taking some of those shots because he had to drop one of his hands go go for the gun
It's not easy for the average man to kill someone with their bare hands. Travon would have kept beating Zimmermann until he curled up into a fetal position and started to weep. Then Travon would have kicked him in the ribs a few times, called him a "cracker" and a "beeotch" and walked away
Would you stake your life on that assumption? MURRAY, Utah -- A 46-year-old soccer referee who was punched by a teenage player during a game and later slipped into a coma has died, police said.

Ricardo Portillo of Salt Lake City passed away at the hospital, where he was being treated following the assault last weekend, Unified police spokesman Justin Hoyal said Saturday night.

Police have accused a 17-year-old player in a recreational soccer league of punching Portillo after the man called a foul on him and issued him a yellow card.

If Zimmerman had not had a gun what would the story be? Black teen bashes man's head in?
Would there be a story at all? The media might not have salivated over the story if it weren't for the race angle. Black on white crime is sometimes ignored since it doesn't fit the politically correct narrative.
If Zimmerman had been killed would it have been a non-story or would it have been lots of outraged op-eds about the murder of a Jewish man?
Is Zimmerman Jewish or part Hispanic? Does the Hispanic part disqualify him from supportive op eds?
Stand your ground isn't relevant. If Zimmerman thought his brains were going to start spilling out he had a legal right to self defense.
It's a circus put in front of us instead of investigative reporting on government.

I carry ALWAYS even when I'm not following anyone. If George wouldn't even leave his home to get milk unarmed then why get out on a dark night unarmed with a possible violent criminal lurking. Police are armed even when just taking a statement. With the criminal activity (by young black men) in his community no one living there should leave their front door without a gun.

<quoted text>That's not the entire story Tracy, are you lying again or simply learning challenged?
The stucco worker(s) spotted a person they had previously seen burglarizing a home "during daylight hours" then followed him from a distance "during daylight hours" then reported his location to law enforcement who arrested the young man who actually lived inside the community. I should mention that the stucco workers were present because the community was just being completed at that time.
O'Brien also talked about the parking problems and then about how he didn't think the community really needed a Neighborhood Watch program. Perhaps he didn't see The Retreat as a crime ridden hell hole, odd that none of the residents near the site of the shooting site did either.
Oh I didn't realize DAYLIGHT changed a crime. How far is "a distance"? I can't find a legal definition of "a distance" when observing a criminal.

Zimmerman is a sociopath, not once has he shown remorse or has expressed regret for having snuffed out a young life. After all he could have shot him the shoulder or leg it's not like he could have missed from point blank!!
That is the stupidest remark yet. Why feel regret for defending yourself from a drugged out criminal? Should a woman being raped feel bad for her rapist because she wore a short dress? Have you ever been in a fight? Try to aim while having your head beat. Rarely does one bullet stop an attack. I have seen people continue for over 10 minuets after receiving a fatal wound. The Boston bomber continued for days after receiving several serious gunshots. Stop watching old westerns they are making you an idiot.

the sick b*stard raped his own cousin. thats what krackers do, I don't give a flying fck about this b*tch, just wanted to point out the sick mind of the f^g
Hmm You have very racist anger issues. Maybe you should jump a white man in a dark ally. For ten years? Hmmm. Then why wait till now to say anything about it? An 8 year old raped a 6 year old? NEW RECORD. You need to study the "Bell curve". It will explain why you are so stupid and should not post on public forums and make a fool of yourself. Maybe you should take up b ball or crack dealer, something that suits your IQ.

Actually, every single person who lives and has been interviewed disagrees with you ... they feel very uneasy about 'the guy' sneaking around with a gun strapped to his side. I think there is only one guy in the complex that is supporting Zimmerman, he is making the rounds on talk shows - his 15 minutes of fame.

They prefer UNEDUCATED applicants. Training is a whole different thing
Then Trayvon should have applied. Every department I have had dealings with preferred trained. It cuts cost to train new ones and time to get them on the street. Most cops even when fired have no trouble finding new jobs as other departments like officers with experience. The ones near here have less than %10 rookie enforcement.%90 came from other agencies, either fired or quit due to performance or change of leadership. A new sheriff often cleans house. A new mayor the same. All that happens is a rotation of personal, very few hire untrained high school kids except if they must due to lack of applicants. One officer I know personally was fired for improper conduct was hired as police chief 2 towns away and still works there today. Point being most departments prefer trained, even if they come with some bad baggage. There is no such thing as a squeaky clean cop.

That would be a lie. Only those who meet the agenda make the news, the others were swept under the rug. Don't worry, If the defense has to go that far you will get to see a few of them. And AGAIN I get to watch you eat crow. I did say AGAIN didn't I? Of course we can prove one lie now. Most didn't even know George or could tell what he looks like. Second, conceal carry, most who did know him didn't even know he carried. I guess you missed the INSIDE waistband carry? So much for the lie "strapped on his side".

That was a freak thing. Fist fights happen all the time
Yes and more people die from them than rifles like the dreaded AR15. So much for "freak thing". In just 2011, 728 people were killed by hands or feet. The point is if both consent to a fist fight then fine sell tickets. However as a unconsenting victim of an attack then no, you gave up your right to safety when you attacked your victim. A victim of violence has no moral obligation to allow you to violate them or wait till a certain amount of blood is lost, they also have no obligation to "feel bad" because you forced them to defend themselves. Would you argue a woman can not use deadly force to prevent her rape if the attacker does not do "great bodily harm or try to kill her"? Do you argue since no great bodily harm or death exists she must just lay there till her attacker leaves her alone? Do you argue that if 5 gang members break into your home tonight and robs you, rapes your 9 year old daughter, burns your home, as long as they are unarmed you must let them, hoping police come help?

In Florida there are over 1,000,000 conceal carry citizens. Florida's population is around 19,000,000. So just walking down any normal street 1 out of 19 is probably carrying concealed. This does not include police, security personal, those who just don't have a permit, or criminals. In reality the odds are closer to 1 in 15 once you include these. Those you claim are nervous about people with guns better get out of Florida because a simple trip to a store to get milk will expose you to dozens carrying a gun. According to the anti-self defense crowd blood should be flowing in every street with that many guns yet it's not. If I were a criminal in Florida I would get out, maybe go to New York were my activity is protected and the unarmed victims plentiful.

Rodney King, the poster boy for "The poor misunderstood black man". Sharpton and Jackson jumped on that soapbox too. They couldn't pick a winner in a one horse race. Ha ha ha. Rodney, OJ, Trayvon--anyone besides me see a pattern?
