What is your problem?
Zimmerman stalked Martin with a gun, Martin stood his ground, was murdered by Zim.
Florida's law is clear, Zim is a murderer and threatening stalker.
You are not very smart, if Zim stalked him he would have been charged with stalking when the fla att falsely charged him with the other charges but she did not because she, unlike you must have read the stalking charge first.

Since you missed the news Martin had obtained the mounted position and was beating zimmerman MMA style when he was shot, it is all in the reports which you don't want to acknowledge.

Neanderthals are alive and well. They constitute the majority of US citizens. Don't believe me? Look around. Start here on Topix. Be dismayed. Be driven to drink, wayyyy too much.

I heard that one difference between neanderthals and homo sapiens [sic] might have been that the later began to use symbolic adornments on the body ("jewelry") which functioned the way a battle cry from a baboon would - to drive off a neanderthal competitor without risk of injury in an actual battle.

Manipulating symbols in other words.

Most of them in northern Europe had red hair and pail skin as this was very likely an adaptation that helped their bodies produce more Vitamin D and subsequently absorb more calcium from their food in ice age Europe.
The modern Europeans in the far north continued this environmental adaptation on their own even if there was any cohabitation. 1-4% of the DNA in modern Europeans and Asians came from Neandertals. Therefore, it is suggested that there must have been at least a small amount of interbreeding between modern humans and Neandertals around 80-50,000 years ago. This most likely occurred in Southwest Asia, shortly after modern humans migrated out of Africa. This would account for the lack of Neandertal DNA markers in African populations today.
European, Amerasian, and most Asians came from the Eurasian clan that left what is now known as Arabia thousands of years ago to populate Eurasia and the Americas.
Although there are some populations that do not have dna of the Neanderthal there was another archaic humanoid known as Denisovans who interbred with early Homo sapiens whose descendents would become South Asians and Southwest Pacific Islanders. About 1% of the DNA of some populations in South China today and 4-6% of the DNA of New Guineans and other Melanesians was inherited from the Denisovans.
Neither of these DNA sequences are found in Africa.
Interesting stuff, huh?

Oh, lest this become a racist rant on your part, see were I live? Now take a deep breath----- OK now---- I am a Cultural Anthropologist. Wait for it------ I have the blood (DNA) of every continent except Australia flowing through my veins.
You?

Oh, so you are prejudiced, after all!

You probably tell more Australian jokes than most New Zealanders do, isn't that the case?

Actually, although I share the same DNA from one continent (Africa) I would lack the Denisovan connection. New Zealanders would have that connection if "native" with "native" Australasian.
Are the "jokes" from Natives or immigrants to that area?
