My "racism"....LOL!!!
That and the fact you claim Trayvon was a drugged out criminal intent on robbery that night make you a loon.
Get lost.
Racist = one who bases color over fact. FACT he was proven positive for drugs. FACT he was proven to be a criminal, the reason he was kicked out of school. FACT he was kicked out of his own home for being a thug. How is facing facts being a loon? Just what would you call someone who "makes up" opinions contrary to the "facts"?

I don't need to bring race into this, he was a thug. Color has nothing to do with thugs they come in ALL colors and backgrounds. People like you do piss me off by defending racism on either side. The card is dead, the free ride from it is over. Being of any color no longer is justification for any action.

remember the fact Trayvon had no real motive to supposedly "attack" George outside of self defense.

You call that a fact eh.

Uh OK.

It is not possible that he attacked Z out of sheer teenage hormonal rampage to show that "threat" known as George Zimmerman, just how badass he (Trayvon) was?

'Measurable amounts'....LOL!!!!
You mean to say they had trace amounts asshat

Nope, I meant they were able to measure the amount.
You fell in the trap son.
You want to know just how much was, uh, measurable?

The fact that it was measured in his blood is the point Danny Boy. That means he was high at the time of the, uh, incident.

You wish to find the toxicology report on your own son and save face, or would you prefer I play with you a little longer before I burst your bubble?

I never said it was going to destroy your life should Zimmerman be punished for his actions you freak.
What I did mention is that I hope this case as well as that involving the retired firefighter in Texas as well as others who abuse this 'Stand Your Ground' law or other cases in which a gun is misused and self defense is claimed will send a message to you punks who think every f-ing time someone you don't care for dies by gunfire with the shooter claiming "self defense" will end up with the shooter being justifiably held accountable.
You and your ilk are a joke to responsible gun owners friend.
Yes you did Danny Boy. You said as much and even more in some of your racial rants against me for looking at facts instead of race.

1.5 Nanograms. How much is a nanogram?
'Nano-' denotes a fraction of one billionth (10-9)

A nanogram (ng) is, therefore, 10-9g or one billionth of a gram. This can be written as a unit in the 9th decimal place: 0.0000000015g

Umm. I guess you missed the FACT one of the items on his person was a lighter. Since he didn't smoke cigarettes but was positive for drugs just where do you think that points? The lighter was on him that night not from weeks ago, however the baggy and pipe had been found LESS than a week earlier pointing to ONGOING drug use. Do you deny it is very possible he was high that night?

Funny how you quote a bias link and even it can't say he was not high. All they can confirm is he was positive for drugs which goes in favor of Georges assessment of Trayvon being on drugs. There are literally thousands of CONVICTED cases of crimes being committed by felons that were high on marijuana including assault and murder in fact many tried to use being high as an excuse for the crime. Opps is that a bubble popping?

BAH HAH HAH!!!

You're laughable hypocrite.

Zimmerman is going down fruitcake.

George's culpability and responsibility lies into the fact he pursued Trayvon in the manner he did. The fact no one but these two involved does not enable george to create a story line on events and make that the only plausible scenario given he's the only one who lived.

What if Trayvon was the one who lived. What if Trayvon advised he was being pursued by a strange man at night and he felt he had to defend himself with the only weapon at his disposal were his hands.

Would you then support Trayvon? You wouldn't have little tale of events now would you.

---Start thinking moron. Because I hate to tell you that's how this case will be decided. Not by bias but by actual thought.

Really.

So it's not a fact an unarmed boy was shot dead by an armed man?

It's not fact that it was George pursuing Trayvon and not the other way around?

It's not fact George had no police training but thought he could carry a gun and act as one?

It's not fact it was night?

It's not fact that the cops would have rather had him stop his fantasy play of pretending to be the Lone Ranger after he already advised them of seeing a "suspicious" person?

It's not fact Zimmerman left his car to continue pursuit even after he followed Trayvon by both foot at auto previously?

It's not fact any reasonable person would see a stranger following them around at night as a possible threat?

it's not a fact that Trayvon had only a trace of past use of marijuana in his system?

It's not a fact marijuana is not a drug such as rock cocaine or bath salts that make users go uncontrollably violent?

It's not a fact Trayvon was not guilty of doing anything illegal that night?

It's not a fact Trayvon had no past that would lead us to believe he'd go violent for no cause on some stranger?

It's not a fact George had a history of repeatedly calling 911 and being an overzealous wanna be policeman in the area?

---I don't know shitforbrains but those seem like a lot of facts you seem to want to dismiss.

Get a clue moron. You don't strap on a gun and play a Texas Ranger only to kill an unarmed person without having your ducks in a row and by all indications little boy George did not.

OOOOOoooooo......a lighter.

Yeah....that really proves Trayvon was a drugged out killer.

LOL!!!!

He probably did smoke weed from time to time. Big wahoo.

Weed does not make you go bonkers friend. Shit....with half the people that use it it makes them go to sleep and the others just go into a mellow state of mind.

Add to that dickhead he only had trace amounts of that in his system.

Now if you had brains you'd know if Trayvon was all loaded up with a milkshake of booze and crack cocaine that night you might have a point but as it is you're reaching and it's really sad of you to have to pull such a claim.

Actually it will be decided on facts and proof. The state can't just make up a story and try to sell it. They MUST prove their accusations. Haven't you heard there is a constitution that says innocent until PROVEN guilty. IF Trayvon had lived, and IF he could provide a story consistent with the physical evidence then yes this case would be different. Even the state has not come up with a story or theory of what happened that night much less proof of that theory. In FACT they admit they don't know what really happened. This all leads to REASONABLE DOUBT. Look it up.
