Yes, to quote you, where is the arrest record, where is the record of conviction? If you can not provide documentation for your statements then you need to get off of topix as you advised the other poster when he talked about the jewlrey. You set the bar for being able to post and how to verify your statements, can you live up to that?

As for the shug thing, I do not swing that way, sorry about you.

I see when that big mouth bastard, barefoot, is called to provide proof for his statements he is very qiet. He made the same request of another poster when that poster stated that the jewlrey that Martin had was stolen. He even went as far as to say he had to three to provide the documented evidence or he should stop posting. Well, Mr. Barefoot, it is time to put up or shut up and please no homosexual references, I do not swing that way, sorry about you.

<quoted text>A boy is shot dead by a pedophile cop wannabe. The boy committed no crime; the pedophile has a history of violence and disregarded the direction of the police dispatcher and chased down this boy, insisting that he was a criminal suspect.

If the justice system worked, the pedophile would be made to pay for this killing.

His story is not yet over.
The boy was a pedophile. The evidence was on his phone. Zimmerman broke no laws. Martin broke the law when he assaulted Zimmerman. If Martin was so scared he should have stopped looking at his child porn on the phone and called 911.

How dare the thug attack a man and try killing him on the sidewalk. The thug will never do so again thanks to Zimmerman.

Dear, there was no arrest but here for your enjoyment:

George Zimmerman’s attorney didn’t want the damaging statement of “Witness 9” released. With good reason. From when he was 8 years old until he was 18, the killer of Trayvon Martin allegedly molested a female relative two years younger than he. It’s a gasp-worthy revelation in an ongoing story filled with them. But it’s totally irrelevant to the second-degree murder charge Zimmerman faces.

Last week, I took umbrage with readers who insist on using Trayvon’s past to justify Zimmerman’s shooting him. Much of the information they rely on is false, especially the fake photos. Some of it is true, such as the suspensions from school and the pot use. And yet none of it was relevant as Zimmerman didn’t know anything about Trayvon when he shot him on Feb. 26.

The same standard applies to molestation allegations against Zimmerman.


My heart goes out to “Witness 9.” She suffered abuse that she says traumatized her, and she suffered in silence. It wasn’t until 2005 that she said she told her sister. Zimmerman was later confronted at a pizzeria in Florida. He apologized and left. These allegations brand Zimmerman a predator and a creep. But they aren’t relevant to Zimmerman’s current predicament.

Here’s what is relevant: his 2005 arrest for “resisting officer with violence”; the restraining order his ex-fiance filed against him citing domestic violence; and Zimmerman’s 46 calls to police over the last eight years reporting what he saw as suspicious activity involving black males.

Now, dear friend, go back to belittling the victim and leave out the relevance of Zimmerman's past ....

Perhaps if Mr. Martin had "taken precautions" (you know packed a gun like his killer Zimmerman), the threat of some creepy guy following him might have been solved in a different way.

The wrong way - like Zimmerman's "precaution" of not staying in his car and not following a seventeen year old.

The victim was Zimmerman. Take a look at Martin's past. His future wouldn't have been much brighter. NOT GUILTY. SELF DEFENSE.

Actually, as an officer of the court IF any attorney, police officer or juvenile intake worker has proof of said accusations it would illegal and against the policy of the court and or police department not to go further on the report of a felony. Again, provide the proof, arrest warrant, documentation of conviction that would give credibility to these accusations. Devoid of proof accusations are all they are, not fact.

President Obama has a proven record of success, be it winning the war in Iraq and bringing the troops home or single-handedly finding and killing Osama bin Laden. I think it’s the silly season where reports don’t have anything to write about so they create the most outrageous headlines to draw readers… too bad most of the idiots on here don’t actually read the article, they just come running to the headline…

While you keep talking about getting bin Laden, just look at some threads and forum on Topix too, from what the people of PAKISTAN HAVE TO SAY, because they are the actual people there.

Most raised suspicion on the bin Laden raid, as they said the evidences (like blood stains on the walls and house) were wiped out the next day, and many things like that. They ALSO BLAMED GOVERNMENT FOR COLLABORATING BECAUSE THEY TAKE MONEY.

It appears Pakistan is selling bodies from US drones as well, as they take money from CIA, where truth is not to be told because of money.
Lately they appear a stronger sentiment against drones as they saw too many innocents die.
Some said bin Laden was paid to disappear.
NOBODY KNOWS WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO BIN LADEN as it looked like a set-up by orchestrating the story.

I will hope you folks will use the same "standards" when you belittle the Martin family, Mr. Martin's friends and Mr. Martin himself.

Court documents obtained by msnbc.com on Tuesday evening show that George Zimmerman, who fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, went to court in 2005 and 2006 for accusations of domestic violence, tussling with a police officer and speeding.

The three incidents took place in Orange County, Fla.
•In 2005, Zimmerman, then 20, was arrested and charged with “resisting officer with violence” and “battery of law enforcement officer,” both which are third-degree felonies. The charge was reduced to “resisting officer without violence” and then waived when he entered an alcohol education program. Contemporaneous accounts indicate he shoved an officer who was questioning a friend for alleged underage drinking at an Orange County bar.
•In August 2005, Zimmerman’s ex-fiancee, Veronica Zuazo, filed a civil motion for a restraining order alleging domestic violence. Zimmerman counterfiled for a restraining order against Zuazo. The competing claims were resolved with both restraining orders being granted.
•In December 2006, Zimmerman was charged with speeding. The case was dismissed when the officer failed to show up in court.

That would be racist. God forbid you take it to the streets of Washington. They'd be calling you the Klan looking for a lynching....oh wait....that's what traybons parents, rev al, rev Jackson, Obama. All passed judgment before the Zimmerman facts came out and the trial began. They've raised such a fuss surrounding a hoodie....that can be the symbol of the new black-klan they've started
