One could interpret the facts to show...
When Zimmerman asked Martin what he was doing there, Martin turned to walk away. Zimmerman then grabbed Martin's arm to restrain him, knocking the phone's headset off which would account for the phone witness' account of hearing what sounded like Martin being shoved and him say "get off, get off!" As Martin pulled away from Zimmerman, Zimmerman reached for his gun. Seeing this, Martin punched Zimmerman, knocking him off balance, Zimmerman stumbled and fell. Zimmerman, was still trying to unholster his weapon, and Martin, knowing a bullet is faster than legs, jumps on Zimmerman to hold him down, as seen by Witness John. As Martin holds Zimmerman down while screaming for someone to help him, Zimmerman struggles, scraping his bald head of the sidewalk. Witness John tells the pair to stop, he's calling 911. Zimmerman stops his struggles to get to his gun, Martin relaxes his hold on Zimmerman, thinking it's over, and Zimmerman quickly grabs his gun. Martin seeing the gun, realizing he is still in danger, tries to point the gun away from his body as Zimmerman pulls the trigger.
Prove any of that wrong if you can.

The internet is full of claims that the pedophile thug Zimmerman was protecting himself when clearly he was stalking the teenager and shot and killed the teenager while "standing his ground" hundreds of yards away from where the police told him to meet officers that were on route and certainly trained to do a job this worthless racist hump wasn't able to do.

The state of Florida- which holds the evidence- has come up with an opinion.

Gosh... maybe you can mail in your vote?
Wrong again

It is up to the jury to decide..........

That is why we have them moron

Do you really not understand that many innocent people are found so by a jury???

Yes I have seen all of the evidence available and posted some of it here

Remember the grass stains that proves Zim was on his back and the perp was on top of him???

Zim was struck at least three times in the face

The wounds on the back of his head were from blunt force not a scratch

If Zim had his gun out he would have shot the punk before he hit him

The state of Florida did not have any evidence about the injuries to Zim nor the medical examiners report before public out cry caused them to file charges.....

Hung jury would mean some if not most believe the state.

Putting aside the probable outcome will be: the pedophile takes a plea.

It will be up to the DA to prove them wrong or Zim will walk

lol! Sure, son, sure.

They are... factually... your opinions.

No denying that! No denying you believe them!

Nope! None at all, son!

The dead body proves only a couple things
1. The dead perps knuckles were cut up from punching something
2. The dead perp was within a inch of the gun when it went off
3. The dead perp had grass stains only on his knees proving he was on top of Zim like Zims statement
Combine that with the grass stains on Zims back and his injuries and the evidence backs up Zims statement
Son, we know Martin was in close. I didn't realize it was 1" when Zimmerman pulled the trigger.

BTW, you still can't find that doctors or coroners can you son?

What's the matter? You think they might be liberals conspiring against you too?!?!?!

Ooooooo!

You are a liar.

We knew that already, of course.

We all saw the video of the cops using a flash light trying to see those scratches on the back of the pedophile's head.

None of us saw the ambulance pull up five minutes later.

The pedophile did not go straight away to the hospital when his daddy got him released.

Funny how that is.
Yeah

Zimmerman did follow a suspicious black man before and they have an earlier 911 call to prove it, gramps. Apparntly Zimmerman told the 911 dispatcher he didn't want to get too close because he didn't want to get involved. Then we know he tutored two black kids and went to bat for a homeless black man beaten by the son of a Sanford police officer but that doesn't stop you folks from throwing out the race card.
Son, why do you people continually try to make race an issue?
Yeah

Zim was hit at least three times in the face and at least three times in the back of the head
The dead perp had no injuries except a single point blank gun shot wound
lol! Son, you're soooo stupid and you don't even know it.

But don't stop!!!!!!

I'm enjoying the hilarious comedy and hijinx you're unwittingly providing. Thank you!

ROFLMAO.
lol! I know. And that's without going to the hospital but instead, straight to the police station.

So that picture his attorney likes to show... must be part of that reenactment, don't you think? Or is that how a near death Zimmerman looks?
Yeah

You still haven't figured out yet that a dead body pretty much trumps you argument, especially since it's irrelevant!

I didn't make that claim, another poster did. But the internet is full of claims that Zim called 911 many times for suspicious people in the neighborhood. Many on your side claim they were all black people too. Again, he never shot any of those people he called the cops about.
Ok, granted. He called 911 many times. He's a habitual caller. I got that.

Whether he shot any of them or not is irrelevant. After all, we don't know if he was carrying his weapon each time he went chasing after someone.
Yeah

Prove any of that wrong if you can.
How about it was already determined that it was Zimmerman screaming for help? Or the two black eyes, or the broken nose.

Sure doesn't seem like you thought that out very well, did you?

What it proves is that there was something different about this situation than the others. Zim has no history of violence except for pushing a cop while drunk and unproven accusations of him roughing up his girlfriend who never called the cops, went for medical treatment or pressed charges. He's not a trouble maker.
