I'm an American. You are obviously a democRat. You Rats are really pathetic, you know that Swampudd? I bet you're upset because you had a similar event like the one I mentioned in the previous post happen to you when you were a child. Is there any wonder why you always perceive yourself as the victim and blame the evil police for failing to stop your tormentors from effing you in the ass?
If you claim to be an idiot, that would be much more believable son.

Zimmerman should have stayed in his vehicle and allowed the police to do their job.
Trayvon had every right to defend himself, both legally and morally.
Defend himself, yes, he has that right. But Zimmerman also had that right and he was the one having his head slammed into the sidewalk.
Martin should not have come back to him. He should have kept on walking and kept his mouth shut.

Liar, you have thousands of idiotic posts here defending the racist, scumbag, dead criminal Traygone, your record speaks for itself.
Don't blame me if your sick, perverted posts get deleted.

You still have far more posts than me. Yours are attempting to destroy a young dead boy's reputation and trying to redeem a criminal pedophile, all the while giving the world a glimpse into your sick, perverted mind. No wonder you're too chicken shit to register most of your user names.

Trayvon never went back. Zimmerman chased him down. Zimmerman's head was never slammed into concrete. Read the medical report describing his two tiny scratches.

You do understand of course that Martin (being the saint that he was) was a brilliant child who instinctively calculated that running into a home of safety would jeopardize his entire family. He would never have done that. Instead, he decided to sacrifice himself by attacking Zimmerman knowing it would lead to his ultimate demise. What a hero that pony riding Travon was.
Yeah, yeah, I know. He could have been there in less than ten seconds and Zimmerman would have never realized where he went. But that didn't matter. Saint Travon never even tried to get protection from the police. He was too concerned about his upset child molesting girlfriend to do that. She needed consolation, so he instead stayed on the phone with her.
Saint Travon would have jumped into a building of fire to save innocent children. That's just the type of thug.......... guy he was.
Sounds like you think Trayvon knew the bastard following him was a hot tempered ass who would murder him. Had he known that he would have run out of the neighborhood. No, he thought if he hid the sicko would drive off and find another victim. Sadly, his youthful judgment was wrong.

You may very well be right again, Swampudd! Martin could have intended to butt-hump his little half brother when he got back to his daddys girlfriends pad. Sounds outreageous but this kind of behavior is typical in broken homes where absentee parents have no control over their childrens behavior or over their day to day lives.
Children will engage in any and all types of abnormal behavior patterns if proper guidance and moral education are not provided on an ongoing basis throughout childhood.
Society needs to start holding these deadbeat parents accountable for the roles they inadvertantly play in their childrens demise.
Thanks for explaining your mental illness. Seek therapy.

Facebook profile leads to Marion County gang arrests
Deputies say photos were posted of 'Crazy White Boy' gang members holding firearms

OCALA, Fla.-

Two members of a Marion County criminal street gang were arrested with the help of social media, according to deputies.

The Marion County Sheriff's Office said they had been looking for felony fugitive and gang members Mario Daniel McDonald, 23 and Joseph Wayne Edwards, 27 since May 10. By using Facebook, they found a profile containing photographs of the men holding shotguns.

The images posted to Facebook reveal both suspects in possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, which is considered criminal activity.

They also had other gang-related photographs posted, deputies said.

"The still images attached to these Facebook accounts promote and further the interests of the criminal street gang," said Captain James Pogue of the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

According to the Marion County Sheriff's Office, McDonald and Edwards are reportedly associated with a criminal street gang known as the "Crazy White Boys."

Both suspects were arrested and charged with criminal street gang activity and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon on Monday.

The State's strongest witness is Z himself and it will be hilarious when he starts crying on the stand from the prosecutor pointing out all of his own contradictory claims.

Omara wants the jury sequestered. The court should revoke GZ's bail because as soon as he realizes he will lose he will kill himself.

<quoted text>He thought he had lost the pervert that was dogging him. Told the GF he was being followed, then told her he had lost the guy. There was then a brief conversation that was suddenly interrupted by Martin asking someone "why are you following me" and the person replying with "WTF you doin here" she hears sounds of a scuffle and the phone goes dead. Zimmerrmen never identified himself a neighborhood watch. He just continues pressing Martin until Martin feels he must defend himself. Martin was much bigger than Zimm so Zimm probably flashed his gun. Neighbors will testify that he had an aggressive and intimidating style of patrolling. There had been several complaints about him confronting residents. He became a big man when he strapped on his gun.
Zimmerman was going back to his truck so any pressing was done by Martin. Punching Zimmerman and breaking his nose is a forcible felony in the state of Florida.

In an earlier 911 phone call, George Zimmerman reported a suspicious black man walking around a friend's house and told the operator, "I don't want to approach him." Obviously George preferred the cops doing the job.

Some say it was reckless for Zimmerman to leave his truck at all, yet the law simply does not codify that. Leaving one’s vehicle inside one’s own neighborhood cannot legally be considered “reckless” behavior, especially when Zimmerman was well-known as being the neighborhood watch captain for the community. The community was plagued with burglaries and most were committed by young black males.
It makes sense that Zimmerman would leave his truck to investigate something he considered suspicious, especially when he was relaying information to a 911 dispatcher.
Many people have taken issue with the fact that Zimmerman was armed as well, but legally speaking, it is unlikely to matter.
Around one million Florida residents have concealed carry licenses. Carrying a weapon in one’s own neighborhood is not uncommon, nor does it have any special impact on this case. There is no evidence, and no witness claims that Zimmerman was brandishing his firearm or otherwise using it inappropriately before the fatal shot was fired.

"I would go on record by stating that of the eight prior burglaries in the 15 months prior to the Trayvon Martin shooting, all of the perpetrators were young black males."

Zim doesn't have to take the stand, so keep your fantasies to yourself. What will be interesting is when defense brings up the fact Martin hid behind those row houses instead of just going home. Why? Even more interesting is the fact Martin made no attempt to call police for any help. Or the fact there was not one scratch on his body caused by Zimmerman with the exception of the bullet wound and a scraped knuckle consistent with hitting somebody or something.
