Actually, no, ever hear of a citizens arrest? Just because you are a member of a neighborhood watch does not take your basic rights away from you. I walk around every day with hollow points in my gun, do you know why you want hollow points? Two reasons, yes they do expand to disable a suspect better, however, they also are not as likely to pass through the first person and go down the block and strike an innocent person.
By the way, the trial is not going so well for the prosecution. First star witness was a self admitted liar (not lier) and the well paid expert stated that neither he or any other expert could tell who was yelling during the 911 call.
So far the evidence shows Martin as the aggressor and remember the right to escalate force to include lethal resides in the mind of the shooter, only he knows the extent of his fear for his life.
Citizens arrest? What was Zimmermen attempting to arrest Martin for? Sorry again Sherlock. Hollow points are designed to create maximun damage to its intended victem. Zimmermen says that is how some air martial he knows carries his weapon. I guess someone forgot to tell Zimmermen that he is not an air martial. The requirements of an air martial who may need to use his gun at a seconds notice against a terrorist in a pressurized cabin at 40,000 ft are a little different than that of a neighborhood watch captain on his way to Target. It shows a predisposition on Zimmermens part to use deadly force.

<quoted text>Even the cop who first interviewed Zimmermen did not believe his story about Martin hiding somewhere, and suddenly appearing out of nowhere. When she looked around the only thing to hide behind were some 2ft high hedges in front of the AC units. Her first reaction was it would be very difficult for a person Martin's size to hide in that rear area. That was my reaction a year ago when I first heard Zimmermen's story. Considering that Martin was also on the phone at the time it would difficult to believe that Zimmeremn did not hear Martin before seeing him.

Zimmerman was not following Martin.

That's why they feel guilty!

Where did Martin hide dim wit? Behind the 2 ft high X 3 ft long hedge in front of the AC? Maybe he was hiding behind the 4 inch wide tree by the sidewalk. The first cop who interviewed Zimmermen found it unlikely there was any place in the rear area big enough for Martin to hide behind. I know, the hoody he was wearing was really a secret Klingon cloaking device and when Martin raised his hood he completely disappeared from sight even though he was standing right in front of Zimmermen.

BS!...you racist aggitator!

Those bushes were high enough to hide the AC compressors, and it was pitch dark outside,...and it was raining.

So you're saying there was no place for Martin to hide?...Is that what you're saying?...ROFLMFAO!

...and the officer testified under oath that there were no inconsistant statements "of any significance" made by Zimmerman during her interview.

Eat sh!t and die you lying racist scumbag POS!

Ha ha ha...all you guys have left are lies and BS!

What ya gonna do when the Z-Man comes for YOU?

The funny part. And there is one is that all these witnesses that have done little more than assist the defense wera actually prosecution witnesses hahaha. If that's the best, and it is, thing they've got to offer this is a joke. I cant wait until the defense calls their witnesses for a total destruction of the false charges!

The hedge is only 2 ft tall and no more than 3 ft from end to end with an AC behide it. How do you hide behind that? It was raining on and off. At the time Zimmermen got out of his car the rain had almost stopped. If it was raining hard the little candy ass never would have gotten out of his car. So according to Zimmermen, Martin was able to sneak up on him, in a wide open area, while talking on the phone, while Zimmermen was looking for Martin. So as usual you reject the ovious and instead spewing a lot of accusations and moronic name calling because all you are interested in is spreading your Rat Wing hate. Of course if you stayed with the facts you would be as screwed as Zimmermen.

Again, actually no, I always carry my gun which is loaded with +P Hollow Points. Why, because they are effective stopping rounds and the chance of passing through is not near as great as Copper Jacketed Round Nose Bullets. By the way, about six weeks ago I was to meet one of my coworkers in Greensboro NC and did not know the area and told him I would meet him at Martin Luther King Rd. Well to make a long story short I was waiting in the lot of a McDonalds and a black male walked up to the car and asked if I were alone and I took my hand from my lap and exposed my gun and said, not really, I was there with Bill Ruger and his nine children.
Good for you. More white citizens should go locked and loaded. It makes for a more pleasant atmosphere. An armed society is a polite society. I like the expansion of hollow points. The decision to go hollow or go solid depends on the individual and the circumstances of course. Some favor mixed loads. One theory is the hollow point mushrooms and opens up to form a larger wound and less penetration. However in urban combat situations the penetration of meta, wood and glass can be an asset. Plus a good heavy projectile plowing completely through allowing a huge exit would also increases bleeding which is a desirable effect when stopping an enemy. Personally I don't spend much time worrying about what happens to the bullet if it passes through the target. Im a DVC advocate myself. Good luck and God Bless.

I went to a Florida Panther Hockey game in 1993. I had my lil friend with me on my lap as we waited to get out of the parking lot while the unhyphenated folk came out of the hood for a shake down on we unhyphenated-folk stuck in gridlock-EZ pickens. I had my AC on and windows up but when a hyphenated guy came up to the window and demanded his 'tribute', I also smiled and pointed to my lap-he shuffled right off!

I listened to her testimony in court and I did not hear that. First you say that Martin could NOT hide and then you say that since he did Zimmerman would have heard him? Get your facts and story straight. You are starting to sound like Mrs. Chicken Bones who was the prosecution star witness.
I didn't hear the officr say that either. Swamppud's last resort is to lie. It's what he does best...other than eat his young.

He's got his facts straight, he's just another racist enword trying to pass as a white man on an annonymous discussion forum.

You're getting closer to reality. Now ask yourself: who was Martin on the phone with? Police, or his oversized girlfriend?
That alone should tell you how fearful he was of Zimmerman.
It does not matter who he was on the phone with. He was talking on the phone in a wide open area. Zimmermen would be able to hear him well before he could see him. He could probably hear Martins voice echoing up the rear walkway before he ever rounded the corner to get Martin in sight. So according to Zimmermen, Martin was hiding where the was no place to hide and was able to sneak up on Zimmermen while talking on the phone while Zimmermen was looking for him. And you are dumd enough to believe that.
