Thug Zimmerman...

"I do wish that there was something, anything I could have done that wouldn't have put me in the position where I had to take his life."

Something??? Anything???

Thug Zimmerman, no need to wish.

ALL you had to do was stay in your vehicle. If you were so afraid, why did you allow your feet to take you to create trouble and allow your hands to carry a loaded weapon while chasing a child?

??????????

Zimmerman has always maintained that he never wanted to confront trashgone.
In all the dozens of calls George made to the non emergency police line he never ever chased anyone down.

He took the appropriate action by calling the police and by getting out of his vehicle to check to see what direction the subject was heading towards.

George was on high alert to protect himself,family and community from all the recent crime that had been going on [Dont forget that trashgone matched the description of the many criminals who were just recently arrested]. If the recent criminals were white wearing flip flops and tank tops he still would have done the same thing.

George was well within his GOD given right and right as a Florida citizen to DEFEND himself.

There is not one single shred of evidence that George chased down trashgone.. However there is a boatload of evidence that proves Zimmerman was on the receiving end of a very brutal violent attack. The dispatcher suggested not to follow and George said OK. While on the way back to his vehicle to await for the police he was confronted by trashgone. I will believe George until evidence proves otherwise.

There's a boatload of evidence to prove that Thug Zimmerman murdered Trayvon, the child who was minding his own business.

Someone "matching" a description of someone else is NOT license for them to be murdered.

That is a fact lost upon you, as well as the LAPD.

That reminds me of when Thug Zimmerman was first jailed for murder.

He spent $100 on junk food....

White Cheddar Cheez-Its, Fritos, Big Grandma's chocolate chip cookies, animal crackers, Twix, peanut M&M's and strawberry Pop-Tarts.

It seems as though he's kept up that diet. I just don't know why he won't take Doc Lindzee's advice.

Maybe that's the way Justice will play out. Maybe Thug Zimmerman will eat his way to a massive coronary.

Well, if he does have a heart attack, I wish those near him will try to help him as much as possible. That will be more help than he gave Trayvon when he shot and killed him.

Justice has a strange way of working sometimes.

My training allows me to put into practice a fundamental understanding of all types of human behavior and to form logical conclusions that would best serve the individual/s and their family's needs. Basically, I advise clients as I would advise a close friend or family members as to the best course of action, and it's seldom what they want to hear. Nevertheless, it's a professional evaluation.
I would not even attempt, however, to evaluate a person from a few posts on an anonymous web site. My response to the other posters response to tammy was purely one of human grief and emotion over the unfortunate circumstances surrounding her son. But to ask me to hurt her feelings by condemning her after her son was victimized by a potential predator?......is a red flag in itself. Are you not above hurling insults against those who have been so greatly bereaved? Yet you fail to respond in the one manner and with the one response that would be considered normal and not arouse any suspicion.
As I have previously stated, I would never attempt to evaluate anyone on an anonymous thread, it doesn't work that way. But I am compelled to say that boasting of having made as many posts as you have made constitutes an incredible waste of time and is nothing to be proud of. Stop wasting your life. Whatever legitimate reasons you think you have for this addiction are not in your best interests. Reevaluate, and bury your hatred. Yes, you feel hurt and out of control, but you do it to yourself, stop blaming others.
I've read a couple of your posts and I detect that you are a very angry individual. Try finding another outlet for your anger besides wasting your life away with an avalanche of tirades directed toward a bunch of forum addicts. It's not cool. Calling Zimmerman a thug or calling him names or vilifying him and others over and over as many of your posts suggest, from what I can see only expose your own shortcomings. One is usually guilty of what one accuses others of. But to continually harp on a single subject day in and day out, is not healthy, no matter how much you may resist what I have to say or may otherwise disagree. What unbearable burden must possess you to be so consumed by all this hatred? I would hope that if I ever became legless I would not squander my limited life withering away in a hellish district of cyberspace.
There's a whole world out there, why not try being a part of it? And don't tell me that you are, the only thing stopping you..........is you.
Good bye.
HA!

You've proven what you are not more than you've proven what you are.

I am not one given to boasting. The number of posts can clearly be seen next to profile names.

And if you want to talk about normal responses, you've missed the boat. Surely you've noticed the many "normal" responses of the racists on this thread. Oh, yeah, and how they trash the dead.

Where is your "professional" opinion about that? Don't answer, I know.

Here's something just for you...

THUG ZIMMERMAN THUG ZIMMERMAN THUG ZIMMERMAN THUG ZIMMERMAN THUG ZIMMERMAN

And guess what? I'm not one full of hatred. You confuse me with those you'd rather commend for being blatant LIARS. Your training fails you, that is, if you actually do have training. I suspect you do not.

Your "training" certainly should have taught you not to believe everything you read on the internet. Maybe you haven't gotten to that chapter yet.

Don't worry, by the time you catch up this same ole internet will still be right here. Also will those who LIE, who you'll know by then not to believe and give encouragement to.

Your current credentials are of no use to you. I'll continue to take it easy on you. You're confused, untrained and naive.

The world can be so cruel at times. Thank goodness for people like me to show you the light.

Here is the light...

TRUTH is the light.

Try it.

After all with such a bad rap blacks have you should have championed the scholarship and honor roll kid shot dead in the street. Not one caught with jewelry and on suspension, LOL. After all shot dead carrying a few books and a library card would sound much better than tea and candy.

Hard to believe that in the last year no other example of a non black killing a black has caught your attention enough to add it to your arsenal to use against those you call racists and bigot's, here on topix.
You must really be full of yourself.
Once again, bringing up race is the one nugget you guys just cannot resist. It says plenty about you.

It is YOU who must be full of yourself. It is YOU who has the bad rap.

This case is important for many, many reasons. Many of which you shall never understand.

It cries for Justice.

If not for people like Trayvon's parents, people like those who petitioned, people like those who marched, people just like Zazz and others...

This case NEVER would have seen the light of day.

This case is important because it shone the bright lights of TRUTH upon a small town, southern, immoral, good-ole-boys police force who did their damnedest to sweep this case under the rug.

This case is important because a menace to society is still roaming amongst us.

This case is important because parents and loved ones need to be reassured that when their sons and daughters go to the store, to the park, to the game, to the movies, that they will not be hunted down and murdered and for the law to look the other way.

This case is important because if there is one amongst us whose due process of Justice will be denied, then surely any one of us could be next.

This case is important because it calls into question a politically-driven law, that upon further inspection, is not one that serves ALL of its citizens equally.

This case is important for reasons that transcend Trayvon. It's about a failure of adults, a failure of law enforcement, a failure of society.

This case is important because when someone is killed, law enforcement should summon up all the resources possible to ferret out the Truth and allow Justice to be administered properly. Didn't happen here at all.

This case is important because it teaches us not to be silent; it teaches us that we don't have to be silent. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr exhorts to us that "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."

These are but a few of the reasons this case is important. I kept it tame and I kept it brief. If I were going for your emotions, I'd written a lot more and put it in such a way that would have brought a tear to even your hate-filled eyes.

Please don't tempt me.

Yes, this case is important. It's very important!

And you seem to be fixated on GI Jane...after all the poor school kids (black, white, oriental,...) who were shot and killed by white GI Jane wannabees. Hard to believe that not one school shooting by these white azzholes has caught your (as in you racist bigots) attention at all, except to 1) claim the shooter MUST have had mental issues, 2) it was the mother's fault,3) blah...blah...blah...
