All we have is YOUR word that you know it based on your personal hubris. And that's just about where it ends as far as facts go... abruptly.
Try educating yourself like I did then you will realize how stupid you are on the subject son.

The state has the burden of proof moron. Their star witness was caught lying.
The pedophile was caught lying and his defense team won't allow him to get any closer to taking the stand than the table he is sitting at.

The state of Florida is going to prove the confrontation was caused by the pedophile.

The pedophile continued to stalk this boy- the boy who had every right to be exactly where he was at- after he was told explicitly not to.

The pedophile assaulted this boy three blocks from his truck, long after he was told to not follow Martin.

If the pedophile had done what he was told to do: he would be home right now beating his wife like he was before he assaulted Martin.

<quoted text>if Zimmmermen is not charged with anything why is he in Court attempting to smear his victim. After beating his girl friend he did the same thing. Filed charges against her and tried to smear her. Zimmermen has a history of this. He has gotten away with it in the past and that seems to have embolden him. He is a short fat cowardly bully who used the law, guns and dogs to get over on and intimidate his victims. He had already received a number of complaints from residents about his style of patrolling on foot with his dog and gun. He had stopped a number a residents and questioned them. evidently he considered anyone he did not personally know to be suspicious.
Ole GI Janie got away with it before because he had Judge Daddy in his corner staving off charges..... THIS TIME, his luck ran out... cuz Judge Daddy is no longer a factor.

He was not told explicitly. Try listening to the tape. It is totally legal to follow while instructing officers direction of travel also. Also stalking doesn't apply and that's why he wasn't charged. Also the state already said there is no proof Zimmerman attacked Martin. Looks like your the moron here.

How about the fact the Trayvon's body was found a significant distance from GI Janie's car. Leads any reasonable person to conclude that Janie in fact was stalking him.

Looks like you lack education. Read the last reply moron. Looks like your racist buddies have been filling you full of BS. Try reading the actual police reports. Probably wouldn't matter to you though. Racists deny the facts in this case.

This is not Canada and stalking doesn't apply in this case. Doesn't matter how far he walked from his vehicle if he lost sight of him as he said on the phone and was attacked while returning to his vehicle.

Explicitly.

And the pedophile acknowledged what he was told.

911 dispatcher:

Are you following him?[2:24]

Zimmerman:

Yeah.[2:25]

911 dispatcher:

OK.

We don’t need you to do that.[2:26]

Zimmerman:

OK.[2:28]

Zimmerman's statements are supported by evidence. Like his injuries, Martins autopsy reports, witness statements. You know, real facts not like your ignorant imagination son.
so.... GI Janie's statements are supported by evidence, eh?
Like his statement, "then he jumped out at me from out of the bushes." THERE WERE NO BUSHES

Like his statement of him telling police that when he told 911 dispatch he was losing 911 dispatch told him to move the car to get a better view. On police review of the 911 tape, no such conversation occurred.

Like his statement, "I gots no money, yer honour".

Like his statement, "I had to confirm the name of the street" on the street that he lived on for 3 years!

You Canadians should research a little better. A lot of websites are giving incorrect information. It wasn't his street it happened on so no surprise he didn't know the street. Nothing in his statement suggests jumping out of the bushes.

I've read the official police statement. Don't really need your help with the facts of the case after all I only consider true facts. You are lacking in that department. Not hard to believe that someone doesn't know the name of every street in their neighborhood. I certainly don't.

This is based on some of the MANY contradictory statements in Zimmerman's fairy tale, and based on expert forensics, to show lies:

1. Zimmerman wasn't "suffocated" by Trayvon, or Trayvon would have had traces of Zimmerman's DNA because of pressing his hands on that "bloody nose" and "split lip" on his hands or sleeves.

2. Zimmerman couldn't possibly have reached his gun on the BACK SIDE of Right hip at his waist, while Trayvon was SITTING on his waist, reportedly "bashing his face in, suffocating him, and REPEATEDLY smashing his skull on concrete... in the grassy area!

3. Zimmerman made a show of modeling what he had done, once Trayvon fell, or slid, or moved after he was shot... Zimmerman said he sat up, got up, and jumped on the (now dead...but apparently still "talking," based on Zimmerman's account) teenager, SPREADING HIS HANDS AWAY FROM HIS BODY BECAUSE HE THOUGHT TRAYVON HAD BEEN HITTING HIM WITH SOMETHING...LIKE A BRICK OR SOMETHING. And that is when the police officer arrived. The only thing is that...the body was found, face down, WITH BOTH HANDS UNDER THE BODY!

Medical experts should also be able to demonstrate that the "injuries" suffered by Zimmerman are NOT congruent with the report of savage beating described by Zimmerman. And that the precision of the placement of the bullet to reach the exact spot where it lodge itself was not consistent with a "desperate, no time to aim" shot by a man "ready to lose consciousness, and that the trajectory of that bullet (DIRECT, FRONT TO BACK, not angled up or down or right to left) is also inconsistent with that "desperate, no time to aim" shot nor with the reported relative position of the two men fighting.

Putting it mildly.... GI Jane is fcuked.

The minor league self proclaimed expert is Tom Owens who invented the system .He owns the "independent" lab that tested it. LOL.

Is Tom Owen a forensic expert? He has a B.A. in History, not forensics, which may make him an expert on the Battle of Gettysburg but not on who yelled for help that night.

He is a member of the American Board of Recorded Evidence. The only snag is he and his wife run the Board. He's the chairman, and she's a board member. The Board is run out of a weight-loss clinic in Springfield, Missouri along with a bunch of other dubious "boards," "colleges" and "Institutes."

Enough said.

Hilarious!!! Your a fool and have been sucked in by the BS websites. I'll stick to the real evidence and not BS theories from anybody that hasn't seen the real evidence. I'll go with the witnesses and official police reports, autopsy reports, and photos. That's what will be in the courtroom not the BS you fell for. He will be acquitted.

Let's see, we have 2nd degree murder, manslaughter or self defense. 2nd degree murder is a non starter and all six members of the jury must be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that George did not believe his life was in danger of grievous bodily harm or death and that he used excessive force. Remember, his life doesn't have to be actually in danger of grievous bodily harm or death,he just has to BELIEVE he was and convince the jury, or at lest one juror, that under the same circumstances he/she might BELIEVE the same thing.
