Do you believe Martin would have been killed if the pedophile waited for the cops like he was told?
the part I can't understand is after Martin gave Zimmerman the slip.. down the dark passage between the buildings... why didn't he just keep on heading down the path to his father's apartment?

also... if you time the point in the audio where the authorities tell Zimmerman to not follow, he was already on the cross walk, and had turned to go back to his vehicle when encountered by Martin...

Seems to me that if Martin were in a secluded, dark, hiding place, he could have remained there for a few more minutes, and after Zimmerman was out of sight... easily skipped down the path back to home... but instead... he chose to engage.

That engagement cost him his life...

It is better that 100 guilty go free than for one innocent to hang.
What planet are you on?

Certainly, not from earth and not from the USA.

Here, if we get 9 out of 10 right, that would be high marks and of course we can be sure the one we miss will be black guy with no money.

I believe OJ killed Ron and Nicole but that doesn't mean squat. He's INNOCENT of murder.
No, Shug: He's 'not guilty'.

After the court drops the gavel he is not guilty until proven guilty.

When's the last time you have heard the jury announce someone innocent, shug?

Martin was certainly no Saint
Martin wasn't nominated for being a saint.

One way he differs from zimmerman is: he wasn't sticking his finger inside his six year old cousin.

Another would be: Martin wasn't the one with the arrest record.

Again, all defendants have the presumption of innocence until proven guilty.
As we have pointed out to you 27 times: once the trial begins, you are not found "innocent".

Presumption of innocence is not the same thing.

Maybe you should stop hiding from jury duty and learn something?

You mean him being black and all he should not have been on the sidewalk?

You mean when the pedophile put himself between Martin and Martin's house and pulled out his gun, Martin should have scream massah massah please don't kill me massah?

Yes.
And as most people would say: it is only a matter of time.
Already have "told ya so" loaded.
Not sure why it should matter now. But, hey, if it floats a boat, have fun with your fishing trip.

Yes, most people say that, I tend to lean that direction as well.

You won't be "telling me" anything new. You can save the "told ya so's" for those who matter.

Too bad, sweetie. Get used to it. I served my country for the right to have and express my opinion and as long as I do so within the guidelines of Topix, I'll continue to do so here.
Well said.

Thank you for your service.

Was Zimmerman proven guilty in a court of law?
I think he is having a hard time understanding that, the presumption on innocence doesn't go away until one is found guilty. Fact is, he is innocent of a crime.

Now you are deliberately lying about what I said, and I even used small words so even you could understand.

Have you found that jury that a defendant "innocent" instead of "not guilty", shug?

You (you say) serving your country doesn't buy any more rights to express your opinion as does anyone else in this country, shug, and if you really had served this country- and I speak of the USA, not Texas which you seem to think is apart of the USA- you would know and understand this.

Fact is: after you are charged with a crime in court in the USA you are not again innocent.

Even after you are found (if...) not guilty you 're not done: you have to go back to the court and ask for the record to be expunged.
