So you think walking home from a 7-Eleven and being followed and profiled by a stranger meant that Trayvon Martin "deserved" to be shot and killed just because he punched Zimmerman in the nose. Got it.
Naturally, a coward with a gun who could't punch his way out of a doughnut hole needs to carry a gun everywhere. Never know when you'll need to kill some teenage kid because he looks "suspicious" and poor wittle Zimmerman might get scared.
I'm sure Z will be acquitted of the murder charge, maybe even manslaughter, but Martin did not "deserve" to be killed under those circumstances.
Zimmerman is a chickenchit little punk who needed a gun to feel like a man, and then he cries like a little girl "self-defense, self-defense." He knew the law, and he knew he'd get off. That's why he was so willing to do that re-enactment video in such great detail. He knew what he was doing every step of the way.
The Judge found those texts and pics to be inadmissible because they didn't pass the authenticity test.
Now you can all gloat that Zimmerman got away with murder.....uh, I mean killing Martin in "self-defense."
You know deep down he is going to walk a free man.. Like the witness's stated he didn't have the "warrior" spirit within him.. Call him anything you like but the facts are facts..

<quoted text>
Amazing isn't it? If a pregnant woman is killed, it can be considered a double homicide in 36 states but it is legal to have an abortion.
----------
The Unborn Victims of Violence Act of 2004 (Public Law 108-212) is a United States law which recognizes a child in utero as a legal victim, if he or she is injured or killed during the commission of any of over 60 listed federal crimes of violence. The law defines "child in utero" as "a member of the species Homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb".[1]
Because of principles of federalism embodied in the United States Constitution, Federal criminal law does not apply to crimes prosecuted by the individual states. However, 36 states also recognize the fetus or "unborn child" as a crime victim, at least for purposes of homicide or feticide.[2]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unborn_Victims_o...
NOONE in this country or any other is going to decide what a woman does or not do with their own body and fetus if unable to live outside the womb independently. The United States CANNOT and WILL NOT force child labor. It is a CHOICE between the woman, her family, and her doctor. Laws to limit the weeks that someone can have an abortion can be put in place as long as they are reasonable. Legislation that forces clinics and others who perform these types of services out of business and allows for NO possible way for abortions will be under watch and yes they will be taken to court and YES they will win. You will see states go bankrupt from cases and the only people to thank are Republicans. This country was and is founded upon freedom of CHOICE. Everyone has the right to choose. It is not up to some republicans that have never encountered the situation. Abortion will NEVER become illegal and the only thing republicans are doing is empowering the people. So in the words of a great man "please, continue governor".

We spent over a billion dollars to build them an iron dome, have given billions in humanitarian aid, and have given them a lot of the newly out dated aircraft and military vehicles that we had. We owe Israel NOTHING. The only reason, in all reality, that we are over there is to protect the "holy land" and insure viable stability throughout the region. If someone is against Israel they are against God? What kind of thinking is that?
"What kind of thinking is that" Umm.. It's God's thinking. It's in the bible.. Whether or not you chose to believe the bible is up to you.

OH, finally someone with some kind of sense. Well, at least maybe. I meant convicted and I used the word "charged" because I was thinking people would have understood the context meaning behind the statement. Guess that was a little to much hope for someone who does not believe in such things.

Really? Where in the bible does it say that the United States of America must bend over backwards and take one from Israel? I guess you do not know that the Israeli President Shimon Peres has already tried multiple times to coerce the U.S. into wars with Pakistan and Iran? Wow, you would think at least if your going to make snide comments such as the ones your posting you would know a little about the region, the government, and the interactions between both us and them over the past few years. That would call for research however, something republicans have proven to fail at time and time again. Did God create that apple tree outside in your yard or did it grow from a seed that was planted in the ground?

Fact is there was a neighborhood watchmen following an unsuspected minority in the dark in an unlabeled vehicle carrying a concealed weapon with NO motive to confront the child other than to cause problems. There was NO reason for Zimmerman to exit the vehicle. He was not a POLICE officer even though he envied to be one. He was the law, judge, and jury that night and now all three of those are not on his side. Quit trying to defend the indefensible.

Here's a thought. You tell God he has it all wrong. While you are at it.. Tell HIM the Jews are not the apple of his eye. I'm sure he could use your imput.

What? you still have NOT answered the question. Where does it say that the United States is in charge of defending Israel? Just like a bunch of bible toting hypocrites to impose false blasphemy onto unsuspecting people who may or may not know any better. Go preach to the quire lady because they are the only ones ignorant enough to believe everything that comes out of that book. When was revelations and the stories within the bible wrote? How many pages have been burned by the Catholic Church to hide hypocrisy and truth? You know very little and only what your preacher or priest tells you. Do some research and learn something. The book is nothing more than a guide for human morals and protects beliefs of the fragile minded and country from which it originated. Or maybe you are reading the King James version. That one is even better. I thought no one was supposed to change God's word? Oh wait, let us read something that was picked through by a bigot. What a joke. Believe what you want lady but the fact is moral human nature and just cause with selflessness is the key that you are looking for to those gates. Have some sympathy and empathy for your fellow man and do not believe everything that has been passed down in your family.
