We'll give your life's story a rest for a few more days until further developments surface.
Something's telling me that we really don't have to wait a few more days, especially for you.
Let;s see........ your response was only 18 hours ago, and now we learned Zimmerman didn't have or touched a gun.

If Martin had a right to be where he was at, why didn't Zimmerman have that same right?
Why don't you know? Zimmerman isn't BLACK! Hahaha And appeasers and apologist get no brownie points from their Afrikan masters for applauding white rights. Only darkie rights are covered Hahaha!

Wrong. You do kill a 17 year old after he assaults you, pins you down, blackens your eyes, breaks your nose and then tries to go for your gun. I certainly condone that.
Me too but that hesitation could have killed him too. When the thug came out of the darkness he should've taken a Weaver stance and prepared to fire. At that moment the coward would have probably ran away. Had he continued his advance it would have been a double tap Mozambique Drill ran on him and put him down for the count. And I would've invoked the Stand Your Ground law that George didn't need. The presence of a firearm often prevents the necessity to use it. Waiting until physically attacked was a mistake. Had I been in Zimmermans position Martin may still be alive or he would've died before striking me. Georges lack of proper training showed from the very beginning but even then he had the right to stop the aggression ASAP. Im sure he did the best he could under the circumstances and I applaud his legal victory.

You tell em' Zazz!!!

It is all very interesting regarding this recent domestic violence incident. I know we don't know enough yet, but the destroyed Ipad, not only the video, just may get Zimm.

I read that the grainy surveillance camera at the home appeared to show Zimm smashing the Ipad. I know, "grainy", and "appeared". But if true, that warrants a charge of DV Malicious Mischief (destruction of property). With that DV tag, our little cowardly gun-totten' child killer, pedophile, wife beater would lose his gun rights! Wouldn't that be the best? But then he would carry a Cross-Bow in this truck. Hmmmmm...

Funny thing. You write as if I had actually asked you to provide proof.
Another funny thing. You rant during your telling me that the thread is about to close and it's purpose disappeared even before the first post was written, but yet here you are.
Really funny that you chastise me for being where you are on a dying thread, and tell ME to get a clue.
But then there is this too, which is downright hilarious ... you say no one reads, or rather listens to, apparently me, but here you are not only listening, but responding.
You are one messed up dude. You're good for a laugh tho. Thanks.
I see you didn't get that clue. No worries.

Do not confuse listening with looking or hearing. There's a huge difference.

I'm on this thread because I choose to be and I do not object to you being here. Don't know what you're kicking up a fuss for.

This thread is merely for my amusement. The Racists, Bigots, Idiots, Fools and nincompoops (led by Bronach the terrible liar and his equally filthy partner, bit Jit) have turned this thread into a thread filled with hate, racism, filth, profanity and bigotry.

How can anyone take this thread seriously? Lighten up. This thread serves no useful purpose whatsoever.

It is a closed thread, for all practical purposes. What goes on now is just for kicks. You know good and well thoughtful conversation doesn't go on here unless it's from me or one of the other posters who know right from wrong, good from evil.

Keep up.

(CNN)-- An iPad used to shoot video of a confrontation that allegedly erupted Monday between George Zimmerman and his estranged wife, Shellie, and her father might prove key in determining whether charges will be filed, police said Tuesday in Lake Mary, Florida.

"Unfortunately, the iPad is in several pieces," police spokesman Zach Hudson told reporters about the device, which he said George Zimmerman had damaged.

The incident comes two months after Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, was acquitted of second-degree murder in the shooting death in nearby Sanford of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old unarmed youth.

Police have sent the pieces of the iPad for analysis, Hudson said. "We want to get all the information, the footage, off it."

“Now do whats right!”

Hows this for a conspiracy theory, the police did not check the vehicle for a gun because they did not have a search warrant, the wife says their was a gun in the vehicle, Zimmer's attorney says there was a gun in the vehicle.

The wife says Zimmerman kept repeating while sitting in his vehicle, "come a little closer, come a little closer, come a little closer".

Trayvon was a typical black teenager and ended up like most black teenagers do.

So what. Nobody cares about your black culture. It has nothing anybody wants, has nothing to offer and exists on a level most don't lower themselves too.

Yep CB, I agree. Furthermore, the cops DID have PC to search Zimm's truck based upon the busted up iPad alone. Or they had PC to arrest him on that basis, and could have conducted a "search incident to arrest" on his truck. I think the cops are scared of all the publicity. Way too early to tell though.

Are you that dumb or just faking it to make us laugh? I really wonder. George NEVER used the SYG Law. Didn't have to because it was a clear cut case of self defense.
I also doubt he was coaxing that bleached albino gorilla to come closer. Why would he? It would sure be the last thing I asked for hahaha!

Keep up.
This thread has been this way since the beginning. There has been no gradual nor sudden change in the hatred that has pervaded this topic and issue since Trayvon Martin died.

I question your ability to see this right and wrong and good and evil and firmly believe you know not of what you speak. You display a tendency to be very set against entertaining any new information and refuse to look at facts which led up to Trayvon losing his life.

You ignore reality when it comes to what the gang culture has done to our youth. I say "our youth", and mean all colors of American youth. This gang culture is especially killing our black youths in our inner cities.
You ignore that fact of reality, and refuse to go there in this "thoughtful conversation".
Your attempt at playing the policeman on this thread is laughable.

This thread is far from being what you claim it is. This issue is far from dead. We who are actually exposing the facts as they come out concerning Trayvon's infatuation with the gang culture, will continue to do so until such time as others also begin the needed inquiry into how to save our youth from the very culture that is killing them at the rate of over 80% of ALL gun deaths in this country.
You slander people like me who keep putting the truth out there, and call Trayvon Martin a victim of George Zimmerman.
You focus on ONE black youth death who is a victim of that culture, and refuse to see the thousands that are dying in similar fashion. Why? Because this ONE case was a man that is not black pulled the trigger. THOUSANDS of triggers are pulled by blacks shooting other blacks, and I hear no outcry from you for their deaths nor for the grief of their parents.
That is dispicable behavior on your part my fellow American citizen.

You focus on ONE case that does not even display the signs and symptoms of racism, and use it to vent your hatred of all people who are not black - when the truth be known, there are damn FEW "blacks" in this country who are not also part white, or hispanic, or native, or Asian.
Our own president is said to be "black" when the other half of his genetic glass is white.
You display the stinking thinking that a person, any person, is either one color or the other, when the real truth, is already, that they are both.

Fools like you think we "whiteys" see BO as a black man. It is close minded apologists like you who do. We see him as a president who is in over his head ... like Jimmy Carter was, only this time, we also have ignorant lying racist fools like you to deal with in the mix.
You should be ashamed of your behavior concerning this issue. As an American, I certainly am ashamed of how fools like you act and blather trumped up bullshit for all the world to see. It reflects badly on all us Americans, you included.
