Your type labelled Zim as a "white hispanic" in a pathetic attempt to disguise your hatred of hispanics.

Even Jimmy Carter said Zimmerman is innocent.

Stalking is the repeated act of following or harassing someone.
Zimmerman followed Trayvon once.

He wasn't told "not to" anything.

The phrase "we don't need you to do that" can also be phrased "cease and desist".
I know it will confuse you, but you can only "cease" something you are already doing.
You keep changing your script to where it is now "told he was not to" where previously you inferred that Zim followed Trayvon AFTER being "told not to".

Zim was following Trayvon, was told to cease and desist, at which point he did so.

If Zim was ALREADY following Trayvon there is no way he BEGAN to do so after he "told he was not to".

Which he was NOT told at any time.

Now go wrap your head with an Ace bandage before it explodes.

Mr.Martin told WHO he had been to the store and was walking back from the store?

Do you call him Creepy Zimmerman because you hate hispanics, jews or a Creepy Ass Cracka?

Have you been baking hashish brownies?

Jimmy, as well as Charles Barkley, agreed with the verdict.

But Obama has said he also AGREES With the Verdict-----BUT he is walking a very fine line and said it in a way that his base wouldn't preceive it as such.

http://nbcpolitics.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/07/... trayvon

The president added, "The judge conducted the trial in a professional manner. The prosecution and the defense made their arguments. The jurors were properly instructed that in a case such as this, REASONABLE DOUBT WAS RELEVANT and they rendered a verdict. And once the jury's spoken, that's how our system works."
----------
Of course, the VERDICT was a slam-dunk. Even if all 6 jurors leaned Trayvon's way, there would still exist REASONABLE DOUBT.

Trayvon was on top of George beating the hell out of him AND No Evidence was presented to clarify who launched the physical attack.

No eye witnesses, nothing.

If you don't understand, listen to Obama's statement.

. Negroes are fed up that our Justice System is being used to punish mainly Negroes.

Consider the following equation:

_ Negro kills Negro = One dead Negro + One convicted Negro

_ Negro kills White = One dead White + One or many convicted or dead Negroes

_ White kills Negro = One dead Negro + One free White hero and a lot of gloating

Interesting isn't it: if a white man kills a black man and is found not guilty it's called injustice & sparks riots & protests. If a black man kills a white man and is found not guilty, you don't hear a word about it and the president doesn't make anationaL SPEECH OF PROTEST. THAT IS RACISM AT IT'S WORST.

No suprises there. The poorly written Florida "stand your ground" laws allows people to go after people with a gun and kill them simply because they "feel threatened" which is what Zimmerman did.
He went with a gun chasing after a teenage boy. Trayvon got scared and defended himself from Zimmerman. Zimmerman shot him. Florida protects the aggressor, Zimmerman.
Good luck Florida when the streets run red with blood because of your poorly written statute.
RUN RED WITH BLOOD? I believe I heard the same thing when they passed the far reaching ccw laws, and the streets didn't run red - crime went down though.
