<quoted text>How would he stalk somebody that wasn't there? Zimmerman stopped chasing Martin at least a minute or so before he hung up with 911. Again, the jury or judge will have to ask themselves why Martin stopped and hid behind that house instead of returning home. They can't claim it was out of fear. If Martin feared Zimmerman, he would have called 911 and they would have explained what was going on. Because he didn't do the right thing, it cost him his life.

Ghetto trash don't like being dissed. The motive here is clearly revenge. Later on, Martin probably felt like a pssy in front of his girlfriend on the phone when he ran. He attacked Zimmerman out of self-respect and so he could brag to his girlfriend how he beat the hell out of Zimmerman or killed him.
The punk was talking to his girl friend instead of the cops

Zim was talking to the cops

<quoted text>Actually, no. That's just the claim.
And the only person who really knows is Zimmerman.
Unfortunately for him, Zimmerman already had shown intent. So we just need to go on the available facts.
That's what I'm doing. The 911 call tells the story. What I heard was Zimmerman running after Martin which he admitted to when the dispatcher asked. When the dispatcher said "we don't need you to do that" Zimmerman stopped running which is clear on the tape.

It doesn't matter what I think or what you think. What matters is what a possible jury might think when they get all the evidence I'm presenting here. If there are jurors who are not swayed in any way, this is what they are going to see and certainly questions the prosecutions assertions of what took place. As you stated, the only one who knows is Zimmerman, so the jury will have to decide on what happened: the Zimmerman account or the prosecutions account which is speculative.

If I'm a juror trying to decide who attacked who, the only thing on my mind is why did Martin hide behind the houses instead of running home? Clearly, Martin had the speed and physical ability to outrun Zimmerman any day of the week.

For all we know, the girlfriend might have coxed him to return to Zimmerman and settle the score, but of course, that can't be proven. I'm just trying to think like a 17 year old again and how I would have taken the situation. No boy at that age wants his GF to think him as a coward. He was likely less upset with Zimmerman than he was of himself. Pride goes a long way.

And we already know Zimmerman is a liar.

He's proven that in front of a judge no less.

Correct
If Zim was going to murder him he would not have called 911
He would have drawn his gun before the punk attacked
He would have shot him more than once
lol! Taking a loaded weapon while stalking someone IS showing intent son.

Okay, then if we are going to use Zimmerman's past to judge his character, then it goes both ways: Martin was a thief and a drug addict.

Wrong again
I carried a concealed loaded weapon for over 20 years and there is no law that says you can't follow anyone carrying a gun

And if you are in fear of someone you can also draw your weapon

And anyone that attacks me will be shot..........

We'll let the tape speak for itself since it's pertinent to the case and not your "20 years."

The state of Florida isn't using NBC tapes and neither am I.

And poor pedophile thug: the state isn't going to be using the tape he made except to prove that he is a liar.

I can't wait to see the pedophile's final version.

When the state proves that you shot someone with your gun, especially an unarmed someone who was walking on a sidewalk carrying only a bag of candy on his way home, and that you have a history of violence: you better get online and find that soap-on-a-rope.

Anyone that has listen to the tape and looked at the other evidence understands that Zim was defending himself

Morons that claim oslamacare is a good thing have not studied that either

And I have not met one person that likes oslamacare and thinks Zim is not guilty

But morons that think raising taxes on medical supplies will lower the cost of them also think you should not defend your self if some perp attacks you

Not sure what case you are talking about but if it is the one where he shot a guy in the back then that is clearly not self defense

But morons would not know the difference between shooting someone running away and shooting someone attacking you

Bottom line is the black perp attacked someone and he died because of it.........
