The parents of Trayvon were shining examples of parenthood. If that were true he would be alive today, because he would not have beaten some guys head against the concrete, especially if the guy had a gun. He was a hopped up little thug that thought he would get the gun,and a few bucks off Zimmerman, and laugh all the way home. Nope. Now they have a woman that says when zimmerman was 8 years, and she was 6 years old he sexually assualted her. Georges lawyer will slice, and dice this woman on the stand. It just goes to show how far the incompetent prosecutor is reaching.

When Trayvon's dad and dad's fiancee got back from their dinner-date, he did call to see where Trayvon was. Trayvon's phone was off and it went to voicemail. He also called his cousin that lived close by, but was told Trayvon hadn't been there. So he assumed Trayvon went to a movie and turned his phone off.
As for lying to LE about what time he last saw his son. "Around 8 or 8:30" would suggest to most everyone with even a few working braincells left, that he wasn't sure of the time, so he was guessing, not lying.
As for Trayvon's mom? She did what she thought best. What thousands of single mothers tell their kids all the time. "Straighten up, or I'm sending you to your dad's." because of course, dads are usually the stricter/take no nonsense of the parents.
As a parent of teenagers and young adults, I completely understand their actions.
They do not care about the Truth, just what sounds good to them.

As long as they can continue to disparage the victim in his death and his parents as they seek justice, these LIARS and racists and morons will say whatever they like or want.

Yes I think I know the Bubba you are talking about. He's not a real proctologist but he does have some knowledge of the prostate.
I think him and George will hit it off OK. So where do you know Bubba from?

The last I heard he was living in New Jersey. I think he did some time for an illegal back door violation in Edison. If he is in a Florida prison it will not be hard to track him down. I forgot his last name but all the corrections staff know him as Bubba.

"Back at the Retreat at Twin Lakes, Tracy Martin and Brandy Green returned to her town house around 10:30 p.m. to find her son, but not his. Trayvon had gone to the store, Chad explained. The adults did not panic. Trayvon was 17, after all. Maybe he had gone to visit a cousin in nearby Oviedo, or maybe he had met a girl along the way, and was chatting her up. Mr. Martin called Trayvons cellphone, but it went straight to voice mail. Then he called the cousin, who did not answer, but he expected the young man to call back. They went to sleep."

They went to sleep???

The son gets suspended for ten days from school, his third suspension, and the father takes him to Sanford so he can be under adult supervision. Instead, the father goes to the movies and leaves Trayvon at home with his girlfriend's son, Chad Green. Trayvon goes to the stores around 6 Pm as a favor for the younger boy, doesn't come home, doesn't call, and when this father returns home at 10:30 Pm Trayvon is no where to be found. He doesn't answer his cell phone. His father thinks he might be in Oveido ten miles away,gets no answer there either, and the father goes to sleep !! So all of a sudden this 17 year old 'child' is now a 17 year old 'adult' whose father doesn't seem overly concerned that his son may be gone all night. Logic says Trayvon should have been grounded because of his problems at school or al least had a curfew. He had neither. Most concerned parents would at least try to retrace his route to and from the 7-11 store, I know I certainly would. Who knows?
He could have been mugged or struck by a hit and run driver and was laying by the side of the road somewhere, hoping his dad would come looking for him. But no, the father goes to sleep. The police are 300 feet away from the townhouse from 7:20 Pm to after 1 AM and all the father had to do was retrace Trayvon's steps and he would have known in about one minute where his son was.
Anyone who believes that is normal behavior for a parent is kidding him or her self.

So you would have no problem if your 17 year old went to the store on an errand and five hours later his whereabouts were totally unknown. Parents that don't see that as a problem may be part of the problem not part of the solution.

George Zimmerman's parents have failed.

George is a liar. He has no respect for the American court system.

George Zimmerman is an opportunist and beggar. He begs for money for his defense and uses said monies to pay off credit card bills for himself and family members.

Zimmerman has no respect for law enforcement. He's been busted for attacking law enforcement officers.

George Zimmerman has been known to be violent toward women.

George Zimmerman is a sorry excuse for a human being. He plays the role of cop in the same manner as a child plays house.

Zimmerman's parents have coddled and spoiled this rotten egg for his entire life. They have failed. They have produced a good for nothing criminal. A criminal that uses the facade of righteousness to justify his less than ideal behavior. George Zimmerman is a scumbag.

You willfully lie and mislead. Did you go to the Bronach School of Silly Hallucinations & Illogical Talk (BS of SH!T)?

You seem to miss the point. If the judge doesn't dismiss himself and it can be shown to an appeals court that he was biased, it is grounds for an appeal, if necessary. His attorney is sharp.

Did you every notice, TonyT, that you are a little obsessed with gay sex? While it might be YOUR dream to meet Bubba, the prison proctologist, not all share your facination with that.

OMG! GZ made calls home! FROM PRISON! What "filth". Or, do you know you would be too busy with Bubba to care about calling home? Possibly, you know if they saw the prison number come up on caller ID, your family would not answer, so this is more about envy?

To legally request a judge to recuse, that makes GZ "filth"? Or, did his LAWYER do that and you have such hatred toward anything not liberal that you spew such stupidity?

Obama is very familiar with the term "recuse":

I'm being very frank with you - there in fact is no basis for recusal, on the simple fact that the defendant lied to the judge,(or misled - however you wish to spin that one). A judge has every right to be annoyed when a crimminal defendant in fact lies to him, and hs wife willingly goes along. There's no grounds for appeal here, none at all.

If there were in fact grounds for appeal, the prosecutor would have also abided by the defendants request also.

Your unscholarly bit won't make the cover of the American Journal of Psychology.

But since you play a psychologist and psychoanalyst, instead of trying to rationalize the behavior of the parent on something that has nothing to do with the act of his child being killed....why don't you rationalize the behavior, thoughts and actions of the child killer and Thug, captain Zimmerman?

I mean, after all, Thug Zimmerman is the one on trial. A "suspicious" kid who was doing nothing but minding his own business was killed (murdered according to me and the state of Florida) by his hand.

Let us know if you believe the perp was on drugs and/or drinking according to his behavior. Let us know if the perp was going to the store or actually on a booty call run (he has been unfaithful in the past).

Let us know what the perp meant by he "emerged from the darkness." (No UFO sightings were reported on that day). Let us know the perp chose to deceive an American court. Let us know why the perp chose not to identify himself to the child he killed.

Let us know if the perp is being blackmailed by Shellie and that is why he married her. Let us know why the perp told supporters one thing about needing money but did another with his slush fund.

Let us know why the perp chose not to receive medical attention for supposedly "life threatening" injuries and only went to the doctor the next day to get a note for his job.

There are many more questions that need to be answered, Mr. Psychoanalyst. But the last I have for you involves a bit of introspection on your part.

Why do you choose to defend the indefensible act of killing a child who was doing NOTHING wrong?

Soon-to-be prison inmate Zimmerman is freed but he definitely ain't free!
