How about these facts.
Real fact #1- Martin had one scratch to his left ring finger below the knuckle. No bloody and bruised knuckles, none of Zimmerman's DNA on his hands at all.
Real fact #2- There is no proof that Martin 'attacked' Zimmerman.
Real fact #3- That witness has changed his account of what he saw and heard. After being questioned by the non-f'up state investigators, he says he never really saw Martin hitting Zimmerman, he could have just been holding him down. And he couldn't say for sure who was calling for help, because it was too dark to see their mouths.
Real fact #4- Backs up witness statement that Martin could have just been holding him down.
Real fact #5- Zimmerman suffered minor injuries, the same opinion held by Serino that did not believe Zimmerman's injuries were consistant with the story he told of what had happened.
You are the one making assumptions.
Bump.

CONGRATULATIONS...

Cecil E. Smith, on your appointment as Sanford's new Chief of Police.

I hope one of your first acts is to clean house in that corrupt and immoral department. Put employees on notice that crimes and immoral acts against citizens will NOT be tolerated..

Put them on notice that ALL citizens are to be afforded due process of the law.

Put them on notice that it is a privilege, not a right, to hold office as a police officer. Officers are servants of the public.

Let them know that you and the city will give them the tools to do their jobs and back them up in the job they do, as long as they act within the law.

Those actions alone, and following through with them, will bring about a level of Trust within the community toward the police department that is worthy of Sanford.

Again, Congratulations.

As for why didn't Martin just go on to the dad's gf's house? In spite of his size, he had just turned 17. He was still a child, becoming a man. At that age, boys still get scared, but that macho crap steps in and they think they're invincible.(Which is why auto insurance is crazy until age 25.)
He was scared, but he wouldn't run, he'd walk fast. That didn't work to get rid of the guy following him, so he did run. After running to the other side of the houses, since Zimmerman says he lost sight of him, it also makes sense that Martin lost sight of Zimmerman. As he had done nothing wrong, for someone to be harrassing him, he likely figured, the guy following him, gave up. So there was no need to keep running. He was talking to his gf, and likely wanted to finish the call before he arrived back at the house with a noisy kid and basketball game.
Very good posts. The whole series.

Read the stalking law and you will see it does not apply. Listen to the tapes, read police reports, autopsy reports, witness statements. All reports indicate that the person assaulted was Zimmerman. Reports also back up Zimmermans statement. Pure case of self defense no matter what the color. Zimmerman will soon be cleared of all charges. Justice will be served a second time.
Zimmerthugman is not charged with stalking.

He is charged with murder, murder of an unarmed child.

If it is as clear cut as you say, why does the defense team keep postponing it, for well over a year?

One thing he shouldn't have done was escalate the situation. And he did that on his own.
Oh, absolutely. I'm just trying to see both sides. I can understand how Zimmerman would want to do it all on his own and be the hero the cops couldn't be.
He just picked the wrong kid, an innocent kid, to take his frustrations out on. If Martin had been a true thug, punk, criminal, whatever, Zimmerman would have been the one in the morgue unless he was was already brandishing.

Are you saying that this little boy could have killed big bad Zim with his bare hands????

Kind of blows the theory that he was a poor little child..........LOL

I don't agree with your theory as to the cause of Zimmerthugman's actions. Zimmerthugman had called 911 and cops were on the way. He was told not to follow Trayvon. NW rules state to never approach a suspect. Police tell them at every NW meeting to NEVER approach a suspect. All NW is supposed to do is call 911 and report any suspicious person.
Zimmerthugman should have stayed in his vehicle. He didn't, his Napoleon complex was too great.
The rest of your theory is very likely what happened. Zimmerthugman didn't identify himself to Trayvon.
Just trying to stay on middle ground for those that think Zimmerman should get a medal.
There's no doubt in my mind that Zimmerman wanted to be a hero. If Martin lived to tell about the confrontation (perhaps Zimmerman brandishing his weapon), Zimmerman knew he would be going to jail.
Is that what you were talking about?

Thank you. I've noticed the Zimmerman supporters don't have much to say about them though. Maybe they've decided to look at the case with an open mind, and now it makes more sense to them?

No, that's not what I'm saying at all. Although if he had to, he may have been able to. What I was saying is if Martin were all those things, he would have been armed as well.

A case of mistaken identity!

Man wrongly charged in Texas community college shooting released.

"Carlton Berry, 22, was charged in the January 22ND shooting at Lone Star College near Houston. He was released due to a faulty identification by a witness."

"Police later charged Trey Foster, 22, with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest."

100% of black thugs are not armed.........many are too stupid to seal or buy a weapon.......

Botom line is that the evidence shows Zim was on his back and the perp never was..........

Zim was hit at least three times in the face and the perp was not......

The perp was shot at point black range when Zim was on his back.......

No law against shooting someone that is beating you........
