The ME found no blood or injuries to Trayvon's hands consistent for your 'How trayvon punch george in and face'
There was only 'minor' injuries to Trayvon's hands and no blood from george zimmerman on them.
How ironic..Trayvon had no blood of George Zimmerman's on his hands and George...well, nevermind.
Yeah...clem...I know the grounds by which the jury voted not guilty just as well as you do.
So it was a spontaneous broken nose? Guess Trayvon needs to be elevated into sainthood for performing a miracle.
(I could punch you one time in the nose, really, really hard. You would blackout and fall down. Shortly thereafter, your nose would start bleeding. I would be left with 'minor' injury to my hand and none of your blood.)

Blacks benefit from Florida ‘Stand Your Ground’ law at disproportionate rate

http://dailycaller.com/2013/07/16/blacks-bene...

"African Americans benefit from Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” self-defense law at a rate far out of proportion to their presence in the state’s population, despite an assertion by Attorney General Eric Holder that repealing “Stand Your Ground” would help African Americans.

"Black Floridians have made about a third of the state’s total “Stand Your Ground” claims in homicide cases, a rate nearly double the black percentage of Florida’s population. The majority of those claims have been successful, a success rate that exceeds that for Florida whites."
-----
Eric Holder hates blacks, apparently, since he want's to eliminate one of their most effective tools for seeking justice.

Agreed......Zimmerman is a beuschedag.....but not a murderer.
He should have never approached Travon......but there is nothing legally wrong with approaching someone. He made a stupid decision, it's still not murder.

DeWayne Wickham writes on Tuesdays for USA TODAY.
Long before a Florida jury found George Zimmerman not guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin, I'd given up on justice prevailing in this case. I was pessimistic even though the facts seemed clear: the armed, wannabe cop pursued the 17-year-old boy through the dark streets of a Sanford, Fla., neighborhood over the objection of a 911 operator because he believed the boy was one of those "punks" who "always get away" with a crime.
Zimmerman, a 29-year-old white Hispanic who had a loaded gun stuffed in his pants the night of his deadly encounter with the black teen, had Florida law -- and the suppressed issue of race -- on his side. The state's self-defense statute favored this gun-toting man who pursued the frightened boy. That law became Zimmerman's get-out-of-jail-free ticket the moment his lawyers argued their client pumped a bullet into Martin's chest because he was losing the fistfight his actions precipitated.
Justice makes no concession to such a whiplash notion of self-defense. But Florida law and this case's racial subplot did.
Forget that Zimmerman wrongly profiled Martin as a boy up to no good as Martin made his way toward the house in which he was staying. Forget that Martin was armed with only a bag of Skittles and a can of iced tea, while Zimmerman was packing a 9-mm handgun with a bullet in the chamber and seven in the clip. Forget that Zimmerman got out of his SUV for no good reason and minutes later was in a fistfight with Martin. The judge told the jurors they could set Zimmerman free if they believed he feared for his life when the black youngster he pursued got the better of him.
Ironically, in what seems to have been a winning argument, Zimmerman's defense team accused Martin of being responsible for his own death because he didn't retreat when he had the chance. "The person who decided that this was going to continue, was going to become a violent event, was the guy who didn't go home when he had the chance to. It was the guy who decided to lie in wait," defense attorney Mark O'Mara said in his closing argument to the jury.
Martin had four minutes to run away but didn't do so, O'Mara said. Instead, the defense attorney conjectured, the boy lay in wait and jumped Zimmerman when he walked by his hiding place. This is where justice -- and by that I mean the idea of legal fairness -- took its worst beating.
What was Zimmerman doing in those four minutes? Why didn't he go home? Why didn't he get back into his car and drive off? If Martin was hiding behind some bushes as O'Mara believes, isn't it possible he was there because Zimmerman had gone from stalking him in his SUV to pursuing him by foot? And in that situation, doesn't justice give Martin the right to stand his ground in the face of Zimmerman's threatening behavior?
How did the victim in this case lose his presumption of innocence? How did Martin's right to use deadly force when he allegedly slammed Zimmerman's head into the sidewalk get lost in the murder trial of the man who relentlessly hunted him?
"I had hoped for a different outcome, but logically I should have known better," Al Vivian, president of Basic Diversity, Inc., a diversity training firm in Fayetteville, Ga., said of the verdict rendered by the jury of six women.
I hoped that blacks would not have been kept off of Zimmerman's jury. I worried that without this balance, the panel might be convinced that Trayvon Martin's killer was the real victim in this case. And sadly, we now know, that's just what happened.
LoL. Yet another opinion piece looking for a "white" boogeyman to blame.
