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.

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.
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...

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.
I had one of those, Jack. Damn thing was so small that I got rid of it Good gun for a 3 ft shot, but hard to hold with large hands.

It's amazing how GZ's blood and DNA was traceable on his own clothes, regardless of the rain.

However, all of GZ's blood and DNA on Martin was miraculously washed away by the rain, even the potential blood and skin cells beneath his nails.

It's also interesting how GZ's blood was flowing forward towards his face and not backwards, in the direction that his head was being "slammed". The blood flow was more indicative of someone leaning forward over something or someone.

In summary, if Martin punched, beat, slammed, MMA-styled, smothered, and held GZ's bloody face down, his blood and DNA would be have been all over Martin's clothes, especially his sleeves. Also, GZ's blood would have flowed backwards onto his collar and back of his shirt and jacket, which appeared to be clean and stain-free.

HOUSING YOUR REGGIN.

Your REGGIN can be accommodated in cages with stout iron bars. Make sure, however, that the bars are wide enough to push pieces of REGGIN food through.
The rule of thumb is, four REGGIN per square yard of cage. So a fifteen foot by thirty foot REGGIN cage can accommodate two hundred REGGINS. You can site a
REGGIN cage anywhere, even on soft ground. Don't worry about your REGGIN fashioning makeshift shovels out of odd pieces of wood and digging an escape tunnel
under the bars of the cage. REGGINs never invented the shovel before and they're not about to now. In any case, your REGGIN is certainly too lazy to attempt
escape. As long as the free food holds out, your REGGIN is living better than it did in Africa, so it will stay put. Buck REGGINs and h oe REGGIN can be safely
accommodated in the same cage, as bucks never attempt sex with black ho es.

MAKING YOUR SREGGIN WORK.
SREGGIN are very, very averse to work of any kind. The SREGGIN most prominent anatomical feature, after all, its oversized buttocks,
which have evolved to make it more comfortable for your SREGGIN to sit around all day doing nothing for its entire life.
SREGGIN are often good runners, too, to enable them to sprint quickly in the opposite direction if they see work heading their way.
The solution to this is to trick your SREGGIN into working. After installation, encourage it towards the co tton field with f a wooden
club, fence post, baseball bat, etc., and then tell it that all that co tton belongs to a white man, who won't be back until tomorrow.
Your SREGGIN will then frantically compete with the other f ield SREGGIN to steal as much of that co tton as it can before the white
man returns. At the end of the day, return your SREGGIN to its cage and laugh at its IQ, then repeat the same trick every day indefinitely.
Your SREGGIN comes equipped with the standard SREGGIN IQ of 65 and a memory to match, so it will forget this trick overnight. SREGGIN
can start work at around 5am. You should then return to bed and come back at around 10am. Your SREGGIN can then work through until around 10pm or
whenever the light fades.

Your BLACK likes fried chicken, corn bread, and watermelon. You should therefore give it none of these things because its lazy as s almost certainly doesn't
deserve it. Instead, feed it on porridge with salt, and creek water. Your BLACK will supplement its diet with whatever it finds in the fields, other BLACK,
etc. Experienced owners sometimes push watermelon slices through the bars of the cage at the end of the day as a treat, but only if all have worked well
and nothing has been stolen that day. Mike of the Old Ranch Plantation reports that this last one is a killer, since all BLACKs steal something almost every
single day of their lives. He reports he doesn't have to spend much on free watermelon for his BLACKs as a result. You should never allow your BLACK meal breaks
while at work, since if it stops work for more than ten minutes it will need to be retrained. You would be surprised how long it takes to teach one to pick cotton.

No quite true...
Did you see Zimmerman on that video with Hannity?
_
Zimmerman comes across to the court as a pathological liar...

Very calm, Zimmerman looked at Hannity in the eye and solemnly said he'd never heard of that Florida law "Stand Your Ground." Yet, Zimmerman's professor, of a Criminal Justice course, testified that George got an A for that course which included class discussions and homework regarding that law....

_ The jury has been able to get a complete picture of Zimmerman's propensity for lying and how persuasive he can be....

I just don't get people who hate strangers for no reason other than the person was born of another race. It makes no sense on any level.

As for this case, it's a lack of humanity-issue, more than a racial-issue.
