You said a mouthful.

Now go back through this thread and see who those very people are.

If you are diligent in your perusing, you will see that they are the very ones who bring up race and use it as an issue and use it to deride others.

Keep up.

Thank you.

I believe a significant part of the case will be when the defense establishes that Martin was going after Georges gun while saying "you are going to die tonight". Martin was unarmed from the start, However the moment Martin attempted to arm himself by taking possession of the deadly weapon "gun"and threatening George while beating him is where the whole story line changes.

Also lets not forget that George had no idea if this suspicious person was armed with a weapon.George even stated to dispatch that Martin had his hands in his waistband while looking at him. So to say that George got out of his vehicle full of rage to follow and CONFRONT a potential armed criminal is absurd.There are no facts other than pure speculation to disprove George..

<quoted text> Hunting and stalking? I think you are referring to the thug that ambushed Zimmerman. Z contacted authorities to investigate a suspicious person and he was sure right about the thug. It doesn't look like Zimmerman anticipated the kid was a violent monster or he surely wouldn't have left himself to be so vulnerable to attack. Zimmerman was free to walk in his OWN neighborhood. He had every right to contact police to investigate a suspicous person regardless if he was a block captain or just a resident. Martin on the other hand stalked and tired to kill Zimmerman. If this wasn't his intention then he would have been home well before Zimmerman made his way towards the back gate. I'm afraid all these cries of racism are a result of some serious projection from the real racists, here.
Really? Zimmerman said he was afraid when he was in his vechicle. Then gave chase with his weapon when Martin bolted.

Would you like to swing on a star?

Or be better off where you are?

Been looking for a good deal on an ash tray. Most that I have seen are made in China and are either made out of plastic that has been painted with lead, or else thin glass which tarnishes and breaks easily.

Anybody know where I can purchase a heavy duty stand up ash tray or butt-station that comes complete with fire retardant sand or other material that will extinguish cigarette butts on contact?

There's no DNA on the weapon.

Fairies wear boots. Where's your buddy bareback been these days? He off getting himself some strange enword crack or what?

You two make a lovely couple, because you two are the only posters on here who support the racist Martin. Altogether I figure you guys have about 6 or 7 alternates.

Just a couple of black fags spewing toxic racial rhetoric against anyone who tries to have an honest discussion about race on here.

GFY!

This is an example of stupidity on George's part and a slow response from police. He sensed Martin was possibly dangerous, you could tell from listening to the 911 call. I doubt Zimmerman expected Martin to be within close proximity to him because if he did, he wouldn't have been attacked in the first place. He would have avoided him until the police arrived. Zimmerman expected the police to investigate and he was doing his duty as a resident and as a block captain. I have no doubt he was going to lead the police around the neighborhood looking for Martin under their protection. This is a case of a guy who isn't the brightest guy but a guy who wanted to do the right thing. He ended up getting ambushed and beaten to the point he had no choice but to defend himself. He was screaming for help and no one came to his aid. Zimmerman probably did put himself in harm's way by walking towards the back gate. He didn't take into account the police may not be there when he needed them. Zimmerman can't be blamed because he wasn't very smart.

Whether Trayvon actually had his hand on the gun may not matter. The crux of the case rests on whether Zimmerman can convince a jury that Trayvon was reaching for the gun. It's doubtful that the DNA match will contribute much to the case.

Zimmerman wasn't athletic enough to give chase. He was walking and talking on the phone. You could tell by the way he was breathing. He stopped and Martin vanished. You can't follow someone you don't see. He contacted the police to deal with Martin. As Zimmerman was waiting for them to arrive, Z got ambushed by the thug. All the facts point that way although when you have a media with an agenda, a dirty prosecutor with tainted judges who have to manage the political scene....well that's something else.

Oh and I forgot....when you run and talk on the phone you will hear pauses each time the feet hit the pavement which will then affect the voice. He had a walking voice, not a running voice. I talk on the phone to friends all the time who are jogging just as I talk when I am jogging. There IS a difference.

The dispatcher asked which way is martin running. George was only trying to give law enforcement a definitive location. When the dispatcher said we don't need you to follow him ,, George complied, which is something he did not have to do. He could have very well continued for a stroll in his own neighborhood.

Being vigilant is not a crime. Being attacked is a crime. And from the photos and witness statements George was clearly the victim on the receiving end of a brutal violent attack, my gosh listen to George screaming for help.

He was already on the phone with police when he was sitting in his vehicle.

It's not even that. It's a matter of what both individuals were thinking.

The DNA issue so far covers blood splatters. So I would think it does matter.

Oh Buffalo, Oh Buffalo...

You are back at full strength. I wrote a post earlier about me being confused with being others. Read it, Fool.

It's ok, though. You know the Truth. You just use confusing my identity as an escape mechanism. You, and others, use it to deflect.

It is really funny how you guys talk about being "on topic" yet it is you guys who are fixated on who I am, on being "off topic."

That is REALLY funny and I'm enjoying EVERY moment of it.

I will tell you AGAIN, just as I've told you numerous times on this very thread...

I have ABSOLUTELY NO intention of having a serious discussion with you on this topic. You will only be used as my foil, you utter Fool.

Your many, many, many racist, hate-filled, profanity-laced posts had led me to that.

You are PURE FILTH. You are a sorry excuse for a human being. You are a waste of semen.

Now go put yourself in a gymnastic routine that will allow you to be even more vulgar, you Idiot.

Excellent point. "You cant follow someone you don't see". And yes the media sure do have an agenda along with the political scene.

Since the 15th century, Lady Justice has often been depicted wearing a blindfold. The blindfold represents objectivity, in that justice is or should be meted out objectively, without fear or favour, regardless of identity, money, power, or weakness; blind justice and impartiality.

<quoted text>Well that is mean but this person IS annoying as hell. You do realize you will cause this person to distract once again from the topic and focus on the personalities of the posters.
Do you know anything about the minor who was at home during the shooting. Surely, he had to have seen what happened.
It really doesn't matter what you say to this person. Intelligent posts are met with ridicule and sarcasm. I've tried to be nice to them but it just doesn't work, you'll find out. If you scroll back through this thread you will see that these same people have been posting libel against George Zimmerman for almost a year now. Be Truthful be Free originally began posting as Cristo1. He has since had many different aliases. He has no intention of having an honest discussion. They only have one goal and that is to deflect and distract from the facts surrounding this case, and to thwart anybody who gets close to the truth. The more determined you are to have a logical discussion, the more they will throw wrenches into the works.

That being said, it is hard to imagine that the minor child who was waiting for Trayvon to return did not hear or see any of the commotion near his house. This defies all logic and common sense. So unless the kid was suddenly rendered deaf, dumb, and blind, he was surely aware of what was transpiring a few yards from his door.

There is no way Martins supporters can refute this fact. Why didn't the kid identify Trayvons body? Why was he afraid to do so? What did he know? What was Trayvon up to? What was the kid so afraid of? And why did witness #8 act in a similar fashion? Why didn't witness #8 help identify Trayvons body? Why didn't she call police when the phone went dead? Why did she repeatedly lie?

This is typical teenage behavior when kids are trying to hide something.
