No, it was closer than that.
You should not use terms that you do not know the meaning of.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Point-blank_rang...
for that gun and the target being Trayvon's torso, you would still be in "Point blank range" at 30 yards or more.
[point blank is 3' or less a contact shot is closer but not in direct contact with the body .

There's no need to argue when there are facts available. The chamber pressure of a 9mm is almost as high as a .357 magnum. In a light gun, thats going to jump a little. I've shot enough to know....even a Ruger .380 LCP doesn't like to stay in your grip. But enough to break a nose? No way, unless perhaps, you let the slide get you. Again, no DNA on the slide.

CNN has been coming around on a variety of news stories. You can't watch/ read just one news source and be objective. I don't know about you, but I find NBC and CBS to be the most biased of the major networks Saw a bit of HLC last night and had to turn it off after a minute or so . Those people are so desperate to see Zimmeramn in a cell you would think they are sponsored by the NBP and Shabazz what's his name

Really?? A guy falls 6 feet off a bike and doesn't put his hands out to break the fall?? as opposed to a guy who apparently is immobilized by this huge (what is it now?? oh ya...) 6 foot 6, 200 pound, 21 year old NFL linebacking prospect and has his head slammed repeatedly until he almost passes out. AND YET... amazingly... GI Janie magically summons super strength grabs his gun, that he has to go cross body for and.. yadda yadda yadaa!!!

We actually switched from NBC to CBS Nightly News, due to NBC getting caught editing George's police phone call.....Wish Congress and the FCC would revamp the vacant Journalistic Integrity Levels....Corporate Greed has taken over for the American Way....

This prosecution is nothing but scum.
These scum are using the DNA BS, because they know they have nothing, they figure they can blind side these women with DNA.
Lets see the defense have 3 women touch the gun then get it wet, then have them run a TDNA, lets see these scum prove that it is so infallible.
If the ape attacked knocked Zimmerman down and slammed his head and he was disoriented, but his only though was to get his gun, how the F do they think his DNA is going to be all over the ape.
Lets see the scum prove this, reenact the situation in court, get the clothes wet and then give it to a lab that has no clue who touched it, then we will see how well the BS of DNA actually works.
The problem with juries is most of the members watch TV . IF O'Mara puts on a defense . I am sure he has a DNA expert that will debunk yesterdays weak testimony

Broke nose lacerations to head are consistent with being punched in nose and head slammed on concrete per state witness. Not having concussion or skull fracture doesn't mean you can't feel like you are passing out or in fear of your life. Dumb French Canadians might believe that. There are none of those idiots on the jury. Nice try though. Please share more of your medical expertise and idiotic theories. It's humorous.

<quoted text>ah.... but it does. It tells us he lied. And if he lied about that... and he lied about not being in a pretrial diversionary program previously, and he lied about Trayvon jumping out at him from out of the bushes, and he lied to the judge about not having money.... just exactly WHAT ELSE IS HE LYING ABOUT?? If you look at the genesis of his various statements.... they all change after the police poke holes in the previous one.
Yet the seasoned detective said his statements were believable. Nice try. Thank God your not a cop.

My wife still watches the nightly news. I have given up and now considerer it the nightly views . Reading different pieces on the internet is a much better way of getting your news in my opinion I have neve watched any of the so called prime time shows such as rock center or it's predecessors . I did tune in to the last 5 or so minutes of 60 seconds to catch Andy Rooney though

Sequence of Events:

* GZ (aka Creepy guy) tries to detain Martin (aka Suspect), until cops arrived on scene.

* Martin refused to be manhandled by GZ.

* GZ and Martin gets into a shouting match, which leads to a scuffle.

* During the scuffle, GZ hurts his head on edge of the sidewalk and Martin punches him in the nose as he's loosen GZ's MMA-style grip.

* GZ goes ballistic and forces his way on top of Martin. Infuriated about Martin punching him and disrespecting his authority, GZ pulls out his gun.

* Martin eagle-spreads his arms out and says, "OK, you got me". GZ says, "No, you're going to die tonight MF".

* Terrorized, Martin screams and wails. GZ tells Martin to "Shut the F up". Martin continues to scream. GZ shoots him in the heart and re-holsters.

* Martin clutches his heart and when GZ gets up Martin rolls over on his chest, with his hands positioned underneath.

* GZ starts to formulate the lies he plans to tell to cover his tracks. The first being, that HE eagle-spread Martin's arms outward...(just in case witnesses saw him on top).

* GZ was so preoccupied with trying to concoct a "Believable Story", he didn't notice that the first witness on the scene took cell phone pics of Martin's dead body.

ROTFALMFAO!!! YOU call THAT a laceration??!!! heh heh heh!!! Funny... every broken nose I've seen.... hockey, football, lacrosse injuries, etc... ALL resulted in black eyes. How come no black eyes??? hmmm... no black eyes, no concussion, no bone fracture/bruise, insignificant scratch on that cue ball of his..
Sorry... it just doesn't add up.

btw.... I completely agree with your French Canadian comment .... but at least they're one step above dumbazz snot nosed fright wing inbred teabagging amoronican bigots like you...
