I find it interesting that the man who sponsored the SYG in Florida, as written by the NRA, has publicly said it was not meant for people such as Zimmerman to hide behind. He said he should not be allowed to use it as a defense.
A new bill will be introduced so that no one who is the aggressor (as Zimmerthugman was when he followed Trayvon), or who provokes a confrontation (as Zimmerthugman did when he followed Trayvon) will be able to use SYG as a defense.
Yes, Florida is going to protect innocent people from predators!!!
You are correct to some degree. If Martin turned around and assaulted Zimmerman during the foot chase, then yes, Zimmerman would be in trouble because Martin had the Stand Your Ground law behind him. Zimmerman would be prohibited from using his firearm. The problem is Martin was long gone after the foot chase.

What took place afterwards is another story. Because if Martin attacked Zimmerman (which seems to be obvious) then Zimmerman was protected by the Stand Your Ground law and yes, that includes using his firearm. It doesn't matter what took place minutes ago.

The bottom line is who attack who? It's clear that Martin had more than enough time to run home, but instead, waited in the back yards. He didn't call 911, he didn't run home, and he didn't run out of the complex. He stayed right there. Why?

I've read all kinds of speculation from the left. Martin was confused and wasn't sure where he was staying at. Martin was afraid of Zimmerman learning where he was staying at. Martin was so scared that he figured his best defense would be to attack Zimmerman, but all this is speculation and certainly not enough evidence that Zimmerman caught up with Martin after he hung up with the police dispatcher. Nobody knows what Martin was thinking at the time.

You can't speculate what happened in front of a court. All you can do is provide evidence, and evidence shows that Martin ran far enough from Zimmerman and stopped right there. Why is pure speculation. But if I'm a judge or juror, I know exactly why Martin didn't run home and instead, waited in the back yards.

<quoted text>Are you so stupid that you think following a suspicious suspect is the same as attacking them??????

Security does it everyday in every mall in the USA

The mistake Zim made was not recording the whole time or having his phone on speaker when calling 911

All he would have done was recorded the fact he told the perp he match a burglary suspect and that he was going to follow him until he left the subdivision
As soon as the punk threatened Zim he could have warned him that if the punk attacks Zim will use deadly force

We would not be having this conversation now and Zim would be walking the street

Even with today's cell phones I still carry a Digital recorder as a pendent and I use it daily for notes or any time I think I might need a witness
You big dummy.

You STILL don't get it. Thug Zimmerman DIDN'T want to be recorded. He didn't want to stay on the phone with 911 and he didn't want to sit still until the cops got there.

Did you notice him telling the 911 operator to have the cops call him when they arrived so he could tell them where he is?

Remember, that was after the 911 operator said the cops would meet him at the mailboxes.

Don't you worry one bit, Republican-appointed Special Prosecutor Angela Corey will give you Thug Zimmerman's timeline in which he committed a horrible crime.

<quoted text>Correct

Attacking some that has identified them self as a off duty security guard and was calling 911 is cause to be shot dead

Someone better trained would have fired three times
Thug Zimmerman did NOT identify himself.

What evidence do you have that Thug Zimmerman identified himself?

Do tell.

I'm sure there are some. OJ supposedly got a jury that didn't know anything about the case. But like the OJ jury, I think the real trouble could be the racial makeup and not what they do or do not know. Blacks will stick up for blacks right or wrong.

Identifying himself to whom?

We ALREADY know that the 911 operator knows who Thug Zimmerman was. That was never in contention.

Looks like you've done your research and realized that Thug Zimmerman NEVER identified himself to Trayvon. And now you present us with a dog and pony show about who the Thug identified himself to.

You're a real piece of work!

<quoted text>More lies. Yes, you heard the seat belt (headlight) alarm before he gave chase. He ran for several seconds before he stopped. NOBODY TOLD HIM TO STAY PUT!!!! The dispatcher advised him to discontinue his chase which Zimmerman did. He talked with 911 for another minute or so, then went to the front of the house where he last seen Martin to get an address, and that's when he was attacked proving that Martin did not try to run away from Zimmerman, only far enough to stop and wait for the perfect moment to attack him. Martin had more than ample time to run home, but he didn't. He waited for Zimmerman.
Wrong.

It was Thug Zimmerman who went chasing after Trayvon.

He killed the child.

The State of Florida will prove that he murdered the child.

Shows how much you know about the criminal justice system.

The standard is not seating "a jury that has not heard about this story."

I'll give you three guesses as to what the standard is.

Oh, it's Christmastime. I'll give you four guesses.

Zimmerman did not follow the advice of the police dispatcher. That is why he hung up the phone, so he could continue to chase Trayvon down and shoot him.
The 911 tape clearly shows that Zimmerman DID stop following Martin. The reason the dispatcher asked if he was following Martin was because he heard Zimmerman panting, he heard the phone brushing against something, he heard Zimmerman out of breath. Within a few seconds after the dispatcher said "we don't need you to do that" Zimmerman's started to breathe in a normal manor. His voice returned to a normal and quite tone. The brushing against the phone stopped. It's clear that he did exactly what the dispatcher asked, and I'm sure Zimmerman's defense lawyer will be quick to bring that up.

More importantly is that Zimmerman told the dispatcher he lost sight of Martin. If he were still chasing Martin, he wouldn't have said that.

Reading Thug Zimmerman's mind does not require much.

Also, reading your mind, and your many rants about what you would have done to the "black" child does not require a degree in a multitude of subjects.

We read your nasty butt loud and clear.

Thug Zimmerman knew exactly what he was doing and he (and you) are a fool for thinking others cannot figure it out.

That's exactly why he's charged with murder...because he's a fool.

As always, you are correct. Zimmerman admitted to police detectives that he did NOT identify himself. The rules don't apply to this gangsta thug.
Here is what Zimmerman said: Martin was behind the house where Zimmerman was attempting to get an address from. Martin asked "Do you have a problem with me?" Zimmerman responded "No, I don't have a problem." Martin replied "Well you do now Mother-F'er" and that's when he sucker punched Zimmerman.
