No law against shooting any punk that chooses to hit you..........and continue to sit on you as you lay on your back and continue the beating..........
So what law did Zim break???
George was following him and confronted the kid while being told not to. They got in a fight and was getting his butt whooped. There is a reason why people don't shoot and kill people because they are getting the worse end of a fight. Hell cops don't shoot and kill people when they get a whoopin. Why is George any better. He is not. That is why he will be going to prison. Don't ask me what law Georgie broke. It was not self defense. If that is the case I guess I will go out and pick a fight like George did and just shoot the person because he was getting the best of me. You just sound stupid and it shows.

And since you refuse to read and learn, you'll never know it!
As specified by the 5th amendment of the Constitution, any U.S. citizen who has been accused of a criminal offense has the right to have his or her case tried in front of a judge or jury. In addition, because you are innocent until proven guilty,

the court[prosecution] must prove you are guilty—this is where burden of proof comes into play.

Since the burden of proof lies on the prosecution in criminal cases, you do not have to prove your innocence in court.

SAME PLACE as above!

THEY have to PROVE "you" guilty,
beyond a "reasonable" doubt!

There's LOTS of "reasonable DOUBT" in George's case!

He will be proven guilty. Then you can get on here and cry with numbnuts that George did not get a fair trial.

George is innocent until proven guilty. But he was charged with murder. They just don't charge people for no reason.

That's the only reason I continued to post, so I could rub their snotty noses in the sh1t. Thery are typical left wing loons, dependant upon the government, looking for retribution, taxpayer dollars, food stamps, free phones, free housing, free health care, free higher education, free anything, anything they can get their dirty slimy hands on without having to work for a living like the hard working people that make their ill-gotten gains possible by paying taxes up the ass.

Ef these liberal basturds. I think we ought to reverse the roles and make these filthy cox-uckers work for us!

You would do well to see what Jesus said about harming children. That is, if you care what He says.
I see You keep harping upon those non-factual stats about Trayvon's height and weight. You have NO empirical evidence to back up your statement.
The empirical evidence as to the child victim's truthful height and weight exists.
It's in the medical examiner's autopsy report. You just refuse to agree with the expert who used scales and measurements.
And you can find NO WHERE where a child is defined by his height and weight. Should you find such a farce of a definition for a child, let us know.
Take your time.
Oh well.
Gee Whiz does your husband have to take a baseball bat along side your ear, to get your attention?? You've never read the medical examiner's report either. Again for those with the short attention span, 3Von's was a 6'1" 165# smartass who thought he could best someone, found out, or maybe not he couldn't run 1600 mph. Case closed. Smartass dead.

They charge people all the time even when they know they don't have enough evidence for a conviction such as this case. At the hearing the prosecutor said they couldn't prove that George wasn't walking back to his truck or that George attacked Martin. That's enough reasonable doubt for an acquittal.

He whips out his baseball bat and hits her upside her fat head till it turns purple but she still continues to be a problem. She likes getting slapped upside the head with a long sch-long because she knows she can act like an idiot and get away with it.

She longs for it........ Or should I say, she sch-longs for it.

One thing you're conveniently overlooking...

The JURY has to believe that there is reasonable doubt.

Because you think there is "LOTS of "reasonable DOUBT" is immaterial and insignificant. You will have nary a say in whether Thug Zimmerman goes to prison for years or remains in hiding for the remainder of his life.

Do not be too concerned for man's measure of justice upon Thug Zimmerman.

True Justice, Real Justice...Justice that roams the universe, Justice that treats kings and queens and coddled sons the same, Justice that accepts no bribes, Justice that is blinded to man's labels, Justice that is at times guided by Mercy and Compassion, Justice that is the template for measuring punishment...

Yes, Justice that man may look up to, but can never truly replicate is the Justice that Thug Zimmerman MUST answer to. Man's so-called justice is no match for real Justice.

You and the rest of Thug Zimmerman's apologists need to stop being so fixated on what a 6-person jury will do with that Thug and start fretting about what real Justice will do with him.

Oh well.

What Fool boasts and brags about killing others? He/it does.

The internet provides a certain amount of anonymity that that Fool takes advantage of. He/it can say anything and expects us to believe him/it just because he/it says so.

I once challenged him/it to provide proof of such folly. You guessed it, he/it couldn't.

I knew he/it couldn't. After he/it gave me that response, I just closed my eyes, smiled and said...

I agree! George could have done what the dispatcher repeatedly told him to do and quit following him. If he had done that the kid would be alive today and George would not be headed to prison for life.

Obamanation: The Acceptance of Deception Lies In The Hearts and Agendas of Shallow Men of Low Moral Character
Posted on March 10, 2013 by sundance
If you do not join the demand for co-dependent compliance – the media will ridicule you. It has always been thus. It’s just another angle of Alinsky Tacticians. There are multiple ways to “Isolate”–“Ridicule”–“Demonize ”...
