He was found dead 20-30yds from his fathers house so, I'm in back of where my dad stays has more than 50yds of latitude. He could've just been entering the back section of his dads row of houses. She also said Trayvon said," man this dude close, he's right behind me "so, Zimmerman must've caught up to him! You ignore that part & assume that"behind my dads house" means he's right in front of the door. Commonsense would tell you he was'nt because, his father would've heard the screams!
Look at the maps of neighborhood and where the event occurred-you are wrong. No one can claim the right to defend 50 yards from their house.

<quoted text> Do what evidence do you have pointing to Trayvon not walking home & approaching Zimmerman. I watched the trial. From where the stalking began to where the shooting happened, is a very long way for Zimmerman not to be following Martin. Zimmerman said he was looking for a street sign but, the altercation happened in the back of the townhouse complex. If you were watching the trial, you would've saw that, just line in any apartment complex, there is no street signs in the back. The fact Zimmerman didn't tell police the names of the streets when there's only 3 streets &, he lives there is a clear indication that he's been lying from the beginning. What evidence do you have that states that Zimmerman didn't stalk, & approach Trayvon? Just because Trayvon confronted Zimmerman doesn't mean Zimmerman didn't approach Martin! But your bias is oozing out like you're on your monthly. Can't be that!
Evidence that Trayvon Martin Doubled Back

[Full-size version]
MAP
Key:

A – The Clubhouse for Retreat at Twin Lakes.
B – Community mailboxes.
C – Where George Zimmerman parked his truck.
D – Brandy Green’s Townhouse, where Trayvon was staying.
E – Zimmerman stopped and completed his 911 call for approximately eighty seconds.
F – The fight and shooting took place in this area.
G – Eyewitness “John’s” townhouse.

Let’s take a look at how events unfolded during the original 911 call Zimmerman made to report Trayvon as a suspicious person.

We can match things up on the map with the 911 call pretty much step-by-step.

...

Martin is initially reported as hanging out near the clubhouse, looking at houses and acting suspiciously. Then he walks by Zimmerman’s truck at around 1:30 on the 911 call and proceeds east.

At 2:08, Trayvon starts running. Six seconds later, we hear Zimmerman leave his truck to see where he went.

While Trayvon runs south towards Brandy Green’s townhouse, Zimmerman continues east, and remains on the line with the 911 dispatcher.

At a slow jogging pace, Trayvon is estimated to have arrived back at Brandy Green’s townhouse at around 2:40 on the 911 call.

Trayvon may have gone inside the townhouse, but it seems more likely that he remained outside to see if Zimmerman was still following him and just continued talking to his girlfriend over the next few minutes.

>>-> After a few minutes, Trayvon seems to have walked north, back up the sidewalk to --confront Zimmerman-- about why he was followed.

Where is your proof that GMO's produce superior crops? I would like to read where you are getting your information.
The Corn Comparison Report detailed the nutritional deficiencies of GMO corn compared to regular organic corn. The report reveals the stunning levels of glyphosate in GMO corn and the amount of vital nutrients that have been drawn out.
GMO corn: nutritionally void
The nutrition statistics for GMO corn are bone chilling. Here is what the report indicates:
• Organic corn has 14 ppm of manganese. GMO corn has only 2 ppm.
• Real corn has 7 times more manganese!
• Organic corn has 6130 ppm of calcium. GMO is stripped down to 14 ppm.
• Real corn has 437 times more calcium!
• Organic corn has 113 ppm of magnesium. GMO corn is vacant, with only 2 ppm.
• Real corn has 56 times more magnesium!
GMO corn contains alarming glyphosate levels
The amount of formaldehyde and glyphosate in GMO corn is unbelievable. To break it down, American EPA standards allow glyphosate in water of up to .7ppm. European tests indicate that animals begin experiencing liver damage at .0001 ppm of glyphosate in water. Putting these two statistics together, America's water levels contain glyphosate that is 7,000 times greater than the amount required for animal liver damage!
GMO corn takes that statistic up yet another notch. GMO corn contains 13 ppm of glyphosate, or the equivalent of 130,000 times more toxicity than EPA water standards!

I once got a lot of flack from my fellow conservatives for blaming Zimmerman at the onset for leaving his house with a gun and was the sweetheart of the liberals for doing so.
Now, there's more evidence and my only concern has always been it went to trial.
Even if Zimmerman left his house and his car, it was Trayvon who approached and attacked Zimmerman. He could have stayed hidden or went home as fast as he could.
That part simply can't be ignored.
That is at the very heart of the matter, IMAO.

Are you stupid or, just ignorant? He wasn't defending the house, he was defending his ass! If I stalk you &, then finally get close behind you. You would turn around & ask me do I have a problem too, just as I would you! The fact that Zimmerman made eye contact in the front if the complex &, the incident happened right behind Martins row of houses, add in the fact that Zimmerman admitted to following Martin tells the story. If you don't know, there's 50yds of room in that 1 section, just like there is in most apartment complex's, you're more of a fool than assumed! All that says is Zimmerman caught Martin before he made it home. You're seeing what you want to see. You're view point is totally biased instead of following the evidence that clearly shows Zimmerman followed Martin, approached him, Martin confronted his stalker &, the fight ensued! VIGILANTE!

All Zimmerman's account of what happened. You, just like the rest of the right wing racist, totally ignore Jeantel's testimony that Trayvon never doubled back but, in fact Zimmerman caught up to Trayvon. Like I said, it's happened right behind the row of houses his father lived. What was Zimmerman doing behind where reasons father lived. I'm not stupid. I know he won't be convicted if 2nd degree but, he will for 1st degree manslaughter & the prison time is almost the same!

George Zimmerman trial: Neighbor testifies Trayvon Martin was straddling Zimmerman moments before fatal gunshot

(CBS) A former neighbor of George Zimmerman testified he saw two men in a "tussle" outside his home the night of Feb. 26, 2012, and said he now believes the person on top in the altercation - which would moments later turn fatal - was Trayvon Martin.

In key testimony, he also said he believes George Zimmerman was the person yelling for help

John Good testified he saw a man in dark clothing on top of a man who was wearing red or light-colored clothing with lighter skin. Zimmerman, 29, was wearing a red jacket the night of the altercation, and Martin was wearing a dark hoodie. However, Good testified that he didn't see the person on top smashing the other person's head into the sidewalk, as Zimmerman claims Martin did before he fatally shot the teen.

The man on the bottom, who he said he now believes is George Zimmerman, yelled for help.

"At first it was "What's going on," and no one answered,' " Good said, describing calling out to the men. "And then at that point the person on the bottom, I could finally see, I heard a 'help.' Then at some point I said 'Cut it out.' And then,'I'm calling 911.' That's when I thought it was getting really serious."

The altercation seemed to escalate, according to Good. The struggle moved to the cement pathway, and he said the person in dark clothing straddled the other man in "mixed martial arts position" he later described to police as a "ground and pound." He said he saw "arm movements going downward," though he couldn't be certain the person on top was striking the person on the bottom.
"The person you now know to be Trayvon Martin was on top, correct?" asked defense attorney Mark O'Mara. "He was the one raining blows down on George Zimmerman, correct?"

"That's what it looked like," Good answered.

Good said he then went back inside to call 911. As he was dialing the phone, he heard a gunshot. His 911 call was played in court as the jury listened.

No matter your opinion of Alex Jones, even he knows GMO's are going to devastate the planet. I don't agree with him on all things but this is one subject he is very right about.
