The problem is your diminished mental capacity. You can't comprehend what others are saying to you, have said over and over and over and over. Yet, you still have no idea of what is being said.

You never say anything new, just the same thing over and over ad nauseam.

You live in your own little world and don't let reality enter into it.
I hate to tell you but that is you..........

Have you posted any evidence that Zim committed any crime??????
NOPE

You say the a body...,,,,,,.LOL

I posted the law that shows the circumstances that you can uses deadly force..........

The beating Zim took is more than enough to be able to shoot the punk......

In a Stand Your Ground hearing, the prosecution doesn't need to prove anything. The burden of proof is on Thug Zimmerman.
Didn't the "legal expert on the radio" tell you that?
Wrong. In the USA, the accused is considered innocent until proven guilty. That places the burden on the prosecution to provide evidence before the state that the accused is not innocent. When such evidence is presented in trial, it must be evidence that is is beyond a reasonable doubt. So far, I have not seen such evidence either in the media or by anybody here.

What you are suggesting is that the accused is guilty until he proves his innocence. That's not the way our legal system works.

The troll has been doing the same thing every post here
She is so stupid that she claimed a list of evidential facts I posted from a statement the defense made not facts but only MY opinion..........LOL
One of the facts was that it is a gated community and the fool posted for days how the list was not fact..........
But when you ask the troll to prove it is not a gated community she reverts to duck and dodge then spin spin spin
Just because the defense said they were facts, do not actually make them facts. It's the defenses job to lie and manipulate to get a not guilty verdict. When you post their 'fact' list and call them actual facts, that makes it your opinion. It's your opinion that they are facts.

<quoted text>That's probably why the murderer will cancel the SYG hearing. He would have to testify.

You don't know that because you know nothing about Florida law, or law in any state for that matter.

Your little man friend isn't man enough to take the stand and subject himself to cross examination.

Since you know nothing about this case, having jumped in very late and not having the brains to read back, I'll tell you this: O'Mara asked the judge if Zimmerthugman could testify in court and not be cross examined by the state. Makes me laugh to think about it.

I hope you find that as funny as the rest of the world did.

You're just a little man with a little mind.

You look at the list of facts and disprove even one..........

The physical evidence supports Zims story

Grass stains

You are confusing a SYG hearing with a trial.

Better check your facts, they are wrong.

It probably won't but it was his attorney that asked for it and had it calendared, although the last time it was scheduled they backed out.

He's not man enough to tell the truth and take his punishment.

Yes Zim will not take the stand......

No law says he has to

The defense would have to have a lot more evidence for them to risk Zim on the stand

No if they have a video that would be different
Or even a few eye witnesses that will testify

Thank you for explaining that to him.

He doesn't know what a "fact" is.

The way I understand it, it will go to a SYG trial and only to the murder trial if he isn't found innocent by that statute. This from a legal expert on the radio about a month ago.
The only thing stopping Zim from being totally covered on the STG is because there is no solid evidence that he was attacked. If there was at least one witness to Martin's attack, then he could have sued the city for false arrest.
Now it boils down to the prosecution trying to convince a judge and jury that what is evident really didn't happen that way. Good luck with that. They will have to prove that Zim attacked Martin which autopsy reports show quite the opposite. Could it have happened that way? Perhaps. But again--beyond a reasonable doubt.
Now if that fails and it goes to the murder trial, the prosecution will have to convince a judge and jury Zim had no right to defend himself using his firearm. Given the degree of injuries Zim sustained, it's more than clear that Martin went far beyond self-defense and into assault even if they can convince anybody that Zim (with no witnesses whatsoever) did attack Martin.
As I explained earlier, there is a slim line between self-defense and assault.
No, son. The prosecution doesn't have to make the case for self defense. That's the defense's job.

Because now Zimmy could say another person actually pulled the trigger and under your "legal definitions," it's up to the state to prove the claim wrong.

The state only need to make it's case. And the defense, theirs. This is all part of the adversarial legal system we have.

You're problem is you're trying to draw a legal road map outside of the legal system .

As for syg, the longer it takes to get to that hearing, the more it looks like the state has a better case. And if your "witness" is as strong as you made him out to be with corroborating evidence from forensics, this case should have been over long ago.

But it hasn't even started. And the ignition for that is the defense and it's clear they're not ready.

If he wins, of course that's correct. If he loses, that's another story. He lost a nearly clear cut case of self-defense.
Well son. You've already drawn your personal conclusion.

I still say Zimmmy should have his day in court.

After all, what are you afraid of? Losing?
