The woman has been PROPERLY PROGRAMMED!

The stand your gun law had NOTHING to do in the TRAGIC encounter between Zimmerman and Trayvon. Remember, Trayvon was ONLY in Sanford because she THREW him out of the house.

The TRUTH is that Trayvon was killed because of the Family Destructive Great Society Programs. That is the Truth.

You left out the part where Trayvon jumped Zimmerman.

No doubt that Zimmerman should have stayed in his car and waited for the police, but yes, NEGATIVE family dynamics do produce all sorts of tradegies.

You also forgot the part about Trayvon DOUBLING back from his house to confront Zimmerman. This was the defining moment in the trial, when the phone conversation between him and the upwardly mobile Black woman was compared to the subdivision's maps by the jurors. Trayvon arrived home, then doubled back to attack Zimmerman, which was witnessed by others.

Common sense should have told Zimmie to do that - but he missed out on the common sense part on that day.

Only the clueless mother needs clarification for the stand you ground law. The rest of us understand it's implications. She needs clarification on how to be a parent, nothing more. She failed!!! The punk paid the price.

The useless leftist idiots are taught by their weasel masters that it's OK to lie and manipulate the truth, to misinform, to deflect, to give half truths. After all,"the ends justify the means"-Alinsky. What filth.

The Stand your ground laws should be strengthened. The lawless have taken over most of our major cities. Civilized people are staying out of Chicago, Detroit, and other big cities. We need to pull the gun sooner, rather then later.

Wow - Are YOU ever qualified to comment!
Your ratings are down the sewer!
What a bag of stinkin manure your momma dropped!
Flush twice to be sure.
Trayvon was a worthless pile who was cut short in his life of crime.
His momma is after the 'stand your ground' laws when those did not even apply dum-fluck. It was a simple case of self defense.
If some grill-chill gang-bang wanna be wants to kick your a$$ and you want to let him slam YOUR head in the pavement - Great.
That would be a public service, just like what George provided.
If he or you tries that on someone who isn't unarmed, get ready to take some rounds, because they are deserved.

Stand your ground gives you an opportunity to stand, and protect your self. Only a half wit would bang some guys head against the Concrete sidewalk while he is armed. Trayvon knew Zimmerman was armed, and he wanted the gun..

The truth is a 6 foot 2 inch black thug, high on some cheap drug he mixed himself, decided he would take on a somewhat smaller man with an Equalizer, steal the gun, probably kill Zimmerman in the process, and run home to show daddy and his woman his new gun. Didn't work that way.

She is trying to make a saint out of her son. He had a record, kicked out o school and done drugs. He messed up when he attacked Zimmerman.

Stand your ground was NOT BROUGHT UP BEFORE THE JURY. Just more BS. Now Durbin in kissing up to the Martins on Stand your Ground - that is after he told the biggest LIE OF THE YEAR on the GOP (top GOP official said he could not stand to look at Obama)- even Obama said it was a lie.

The trial of Zimmerman for the death of Martin had nothing to do with "stand your ground"laws.His lawyer did not use this for his defense and it is typical of liberals to make up an issue if they can to further their agenda.
