He didn't "chase" anybody.
He was mysteriously transported from the front seat of his car two blocks away and somehow the gun just popped into his hand.

He chased down this boy after he was told by the cops to stay put.
He has a history of flashing his weapon.
I guess you missed the detentions...
LIE.

LIE.

You failed to mention that Zim mentored black youths also.

IDK.

Ask God Almighty about that one.

If someone was pounding your head on the pavement, would you defend yourself?

(probably not, since you're a wussie)

Funny how your pedophile pal keeps getting detained by cops.
I guess he never got it in his head he isn't the bad azz he thought he was.
He isn't my pal.

He has been acting like an idiot since he was acquitted.

That probably has something to do with no being able to have a normal life.

Did Casey Anthony kill her little girl Caylee, and get away with it?

Perceived lax gun laws will not save the crime-watch guy in he end. When the facts are revealed, he may be charged.
I am all-for castle doctrine and stand your ground. However in this case, it appears the self-styled crimewatch guy was following his suspect (and asking him questions), which does not make a case for 'stand your ground'. In most places, in order to be a self defence shooting, the shooter should NOT be a participant in causing the difficulty. Following somebody could easily be construed by most as participating in the problem.
Town watch/community watch is supposed to be heavy on the WATCH part. I think this guy has got his ass in a sling...and probably deserves it.
The case you cite never had anything to do with the "Stand Your Ground" law. It was a straight case of self defense. The facts were revealed and there was NO evidence to substantiate the murder charge let alone a guilty verdict. Eric Holder, the injustice department and NBC news used every dirty trick in the book to turn it into a case of vigilante, racist murder and they failed. George Zimmerman followed someone... period. Because he had the unmitigated gall to think he could actually follow "someone" (no_limmlt_ni&&#r was his chosen name, right?) and decide to watch them he was then violently attacked. I guess it is illegal now to follow someone and watch them for a couple of minutes? Does that still hold true if the person(s) following are Black and the attacker is White? If I walk through a Black neighborhood and some Black guy follows me and asks, "Hey, what are you doing here", does that mean that I get to start beating his head into the pavement? I'm just trying to figure out the rules here...

By the way... was ANY evidence ever presented to even suggest that Zimmerman attacked rather than defended himself? I'm not aware of any.

He's been acting this way since he was 16th and his judge daddy kept him out of jail.

Wipe your chin, Vance, and stay tuned.

Yes he mentored black youth, and there wasn't any evidence that he was racist either.

Zim was a pedophile?

Post some info on that.

I haven't heard that before.

Not according to 78% of Black America. I was surprised at the acquittal but it was what it was. I don't recall thousands of screaming White animals running rampant in the streets destroying the city when OJ was found not guilty in spite of huge amounts of forensic evidence pointing to his guilt. So in answer to your question... I think he did but he was found not guilty. End of story. I'm not crying about it years after the fact. Perhaps the whining crybabies could do the same with the death of a violent criminal.

I don't dispute that he is an idiot, which is irrelevant to the fact he legally defended himself.

Other than him chasing the boy down, the boy who had every right in the world to be exactly where he was on the sidewalk in front of his home?

According to the jury, the reason your pedophile pal wasn't convicted was the prosecutor did not offer manslaughter.

Putting aside the absolute mess the "investigation" which cost the head cop his job.

Wasn't chased.....followed.....use your dictionary.....Zim never broke a sweat "following".....

The very same sidewalk Zimmerman had every right to be on.
Without being attacked by a thug.

And the star witness testified that trayvon was on top of Zim, pounding his head on the pavement.

Would you let me pound your head on the pavement?

The "star" witness who changed his story, including reporting he was "eye witness" to events recorded on the phone on tape where he could not see what he reported?

PS: How did your pedophile get to the sidewalk two blocks from the car where he left after the cops told him not to chase this boy?

What the jury said in the OJ trial was he was not guilty.

Not that he was innocent.

What the jury said in the pedo Martin case was: he was not guilty of the charges presented by Florida.

Not that he was innocent.

It is a matter of time before your pal finds his way into jail again.

Bet?
