Family of Trayvon Martin to receive 1 million in wrongful death suit

Apr 7, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WDBO-AM Orlando

The agreement isn't with George Zimmerman, the man who shot their son. It's with the homeowners association where their son was shot to death last year.

the sensitive blockhead reported the threat too
someone that hurt his feelings got a warning
no doubt a group effort of ferret, catwoman and the overly sensitive blockhead
Grow up! You are many years overdue.

I'm saying his behavior was a contributing factor towards his death.
There's three sides to this story, the Martin family side, the Zimmerman side, and the truth.
The overriding truth is if Zimmerman didn't both profile him and disregard the dispatcher's not to pursue, this needless tragedy would have been avoided.

How pathetic! A "grownup" adult like you whining over a sewer sludge thread with absolutely no value to the human race pulled. Your name calling says more about your own out of control hysterics than the one you try to insult with you childish antics.

Then again, you've proved yet again that your thinking ability is equal to that of a failing 1st grader, at best, by attributing words and posts to me that aren't mine. You keep trying though, Sparky. One of these days you'll graduate to pull ups from diapers.
Will you post something intelligent for a change?

What a shame How many kids does Martin have with multiple women Can you imagine what his child support payments are? Of course he probably ignores his obligation to pay for his future lottery tickets......sorry, children

We certainly need laws that would reasonably limit how far a neighborhood watch organization and we can start by forbidding somebody such as Zimmerman from pursuing somebody simply because they "look" suspicious due to attire attire or skin color.
Unfortunately, the boy also had a chance to leave the scene but by his poor judgement, he circled back to confront Zimmerman.
More then 1 bad decision was made that night.

we weren't there , we don't know , are you an eye witness ? no you are not ...you can not admit hearsay into court such as you are doing in your post , you have the man convicted , why ?explain why

you have the same constitutional right as Zimmerman , the presumption of innocence until proven guilty by your peers , or a court of law [ court of law means a trial by the Banc] others words a judge is the jury and a judge always enters a plea of NOT GUILTY if you can not be there [on your behave] that is a law

We've never heard Trayvon's side of the story, George has changed his story at least three times, even John the eyewitness has changed the story he told the SPD.

But you're going with Trayvon circled back because?

George's donation account is empty, you can show your love with a handsome deposit.

Ugh .... assume much?
At that age, for both of them, I can see that a young man MIGHT circle back. It's some kind of flaw that men have about who's nads are bigger.

In my opinion, if you are going to have a neighborhood watch, it should be with mature people, not young adults and they should be in pairs. Maybe the homeowners association saw that this was their mistake.
Trayvon is dead, and Zimmerman's live is in ruin. I see this whole situation as a tragedy for all concerned.

Something tells me they don't care about him THAT much. Amazing that, with all the disparaging comments about black men in general, they are condemning a black teenager for not being able to control the thinking of a grown man.
