Actually George Zimmerman is a free man, free to go to and from any place that he wishes. This is one of the benefits that one gets when they break no laws.

Freedom of movement did not apply to Trayvon. He was murdered because he was poor, could not get a ride to the corner store; he was going home at 7:15p in the rain. Some racist f_ck decided he was a criminal and killed him....

I see.

And since Forney is so far north in Texas it's almost in Oklahoma, he must be heading for Mexico by way of Tulsa.

I have been watching the case, and it appears that GZ looked like "Daniel" in the Karate Kid movie during the Halloween fight. I can understand a self defense argument in that type of case.
Also, I had a wedding to go to, and I had to take my 15-year-old cat for an anual exam and rabies shot. the cat is ok, but I have been busy.

Love this comment - must be said in jest about Zimmerman but if Zimmerman is scared for his life (like I am sure Mr. Martin was) then Zimmerman should drive to Mexico and creep and crawl his new neighborhood and keep out of mine.

The man was traveling westbound in the middle of Texas, we don't know why he took that short detour from I-20 (maybe he took the wrong exit, which would explain why he was speeding, so he could make up lost time). Are you suggesting that Zimmerman, instead of traveling toward Mexico, was heading to LAX to meet his wife on their way out of the country incognito?

Actually, not, wherever he goes he will be known as the man who was willing to get involved to help his neighborhood in it's fight to stay as crime free as possible.

I do not say that I am a big George Zimmerman fan, however, he is one of the few people willing to do something of a physical way to protect himself and his neighbors. Far too many law abiding citizens are willing to pull the shades and pretend that it can not happen to them.

Mr Zimmerman did not kill a child. He shot his weapon in self defense, and killed a 6 feet 5, 175 pound predator that was trying to kill him.There is no way you can pretend that person was a child.

Calling self defense murder is almost funny. Yet you call killing millions of babies choice.

Do you mean thinning the herd of American Negroes?

Trayvon Martin had never been arrested for anything and he was not committing any crime when Zimmerman stalked and murdered him Because he's a young Negro you believe our law-enforcement operatives are racist enough to allow white vigilantes (even folks who have assaulted cop and girlfriend in the past) to slaughter young Negroes at will? What would keep them Negroes here or abroad to sneak upon your kin to do same?

On the "scales" of justice, Martin's death certificate has him at 150 pounds, to Zimmerman's 200. It also has Trayvon's height at 5'11". If you're going to fictionalize the event, at least get the statistics straight.

I hate to have to correct myself, but Trayvon Martin's weight as listed on his death certificate is actually 158 pounds, not 150. But the song remains the same.

perhaps he was filled with heavy lead, causing the numbers to go up?

Mr Zimmerman never was weighed by the police, and he gained most of his weight before he went trial, after the shooting. He never weighed 200 pounds. What does George's weight have to do with shooting someone in self defense? There was a trial, remember, and he was found Not Guilty.

Yes and that song was a very popular one for a long time, "Bye Bye Blackbird".

Oh now it's MIDDLE TEXAS.

If Forney is middle Texas then Oklahoma must be northern Texas.
