No right what so ever for hitting someone asking you a question or following you.......
Ash tray broke the law when he hit Zim..........Now he is dead.........And the world is a better place....
Bullsh!t... he was harassed and had every right to defend himself. The "Stand your ground" law applies here.(Contrary to popular bigot belief.... the "Stand your ground" law applies to blacks too.)

Listen to the 911 tape..........ROTFLMAO
I did... and Thug Zimmerman did the exact opposite of what he was told to do. Which is proof enough that he was going to play his role of GI JANE wannabee and "get" this kid. That makes it premeditated and this should have been a murder 1 charge. Thug Zimmerman can thank his lucky stars that the death penalty is not on the table.

If you are being harassed you call the police.........Ash tray did not.......Now he is dead......
Just like your punk attitude he took the law in his own hands.....
You claimed you would boot someone before they could get their gun if they asked you a question.....
Someday you will try that with someone that is trained and you will die also......
1. First I would have questioned you from 3 to 4 meters away.
2. As soon as you got aggressive I would back up another 3 to 4 meters but continue the question.
Do you really think you could attack me from 6 to 8 meters away before you died???
ROTFALMFAO!!! REALLY??!!! Cryst... HE DIDN'T CALL THE COPS?? ARE YOU FCUKING KIDDING ME?? Cryst.... your just a fcuking stupid as Casper the Friendly Moron!! OMG!!! First of all Trayvon was already on the phone... to his girl friend who heard the whole exchange. Second, GI Janie had him engaged... there was no opportunity to "call the police". GI Jane physically engaged Trayvon... and when he found he bit off more than he could chew.... the coward shot the kid. Karma's a bitch... and in prison.... GI Jane's name will be Karma.

Geez, you have a real problem. The thug was a guest in a gated neighborhood. I hardly think it's harassment for anyone to ask what a stranger is doing inside a gated neighborhood. It happens all the time. If we see someone walking around that we don't recognize, we call security. If someone attacked security for asking what they were doing in the neighborhood, they would be disabled quickly as these guys are well trained. If the attacker was persistant and ended up getting killed, it would not be the fault of patrol. There was a case of injury when a criminal tried to steal a phone out of a car. Bike patrol caught the guy but the thug tried to kill patrol and ended up getting seriously injured. Thug tried to sue but ended up in jail doing even more time.
Defend yourself against what? Polite words? Are you kidding? If you attack someone for asking a question, you would deserve to be shot on the spot.
You have an attitude and seem a little mentally unstable to think you should have a right to attack someone just because they ask what you are doing. If Martin were that uncomfortable with Zimmerman, he had ample time to simply go home...but he didn't. The thug ambushed Zimmerman and his preteen friend inside the house was most likely watching the whole thing.
ahhh!!! so... if you see someone you don't recognize... you call security!! You don't engage them, you don't shoot them... you call security. Thanks for making my point, dumbazz. GI Jane WAS NOT SECURITY... GI Jane was not even Neighbourhood Watch (they didn't even know who the hell he was.) GI Jane was a vigilante stalking a kid in the neighbourhood. nothing more.. nothing less.

NO...I DON'T HAVE AN ATTITUDE.... if someone asks me a question, I'll respond... then the stupid fcuk better leave me alone. If he doesn't THEN I HAVE THE FCUKING ATTITUDE. I don't take kindly to harassment.

You do realize that Trayvon was on the phone during the encounter, and his girl friend heard the whole exchanges.... Why is it GI Janie's official story changed so many times after the cops would poke holes in it? Hmmm????

You're truly delusional to come up with such garbage. Zimmerman was on the phone and at a stand still for enough time for the thug to vanish. There's no way for him to be followed because he was gone! Zimmerman had every right to walk in his OWN neighborhood, for ANY reason. If he wanted to look for police at the back gate, he had EVERY right to do so. There would be absolutely NO reason for Zimmerman to come in contact with Thug Martin unless Martin was looking for an altercation. Martin had PLENTY of time to go home, but he didn't. He wanted to show off in front of his girlfriend and attack Zimmerman. Someone he thought was an easy mark. Or maybe he was afraid Zimmerman saw a drug deal at the store and decided to kill him. Either way, the thug attacked Zimmerman right outside of the place he was staying. Right in front of the minor kid he abandoned so he could make his deal. He got shot and daddy dearest didn't bother to contact police until the next day. Very suspicious because you can be sure that minor kid saw the whole thing. At the very least he would have heard the shots and called his parents to come home. He would have known thugvon was killed. This case is as dirty as the Duke Lacrosse case.

Typical black thug mentality..........
Now law gives anyone the right to punch someone that asks them a question or follows a suspect..........And now tray is ashes.....
Certainly does.... if your being harassed. The person on the other end of Trayvon's call will certainly attest to that. Besides, it's common knowledge that GI Janie threw the first punch.... then realized he bit off more than he could chew.

Zim clearly said the guy was acting suspicious and matched a BOTLO for a recent burglary........LOL
A 911 operator must tell you to not intervene for lawsuit reasons only......
No law says you must obey them.......
But there is a law against hitting someone that asked you a question..........ROTFLMAO
GI Janie said a lot of things that he had to recant/change when the police poked holes in his story. He perjured himself in court numerous times. So.. are you telling me that Thug Zimmerman's word is gold?? ROTFALMFAO!!! Of course... you probably believed all the Iraq sh!t GW Baffoon threw at you. Don't feel bad though... in the after math of 911 we all wanted to believe it was someone you could get your hands on. Except... when is started to stink (much like GI Jane's multiple stories), people with brains in their heads figured out the lie.

Ok... so a 911 operator tells you not to intervene, but you do so anyways. Your right, apparently there's no law against it..... but guess what dude, it speaks volumes about your motive. It's like cops bringing you in for questioning on a serious felony charge and they ask you to take a polygraph test. There's no law that says you can't refuse.... but you know and I know... if you DO refuse... it raises a major red flag with the investigators.

"But there is a law against hitting someone that asked you a question" Oh but there is, especially when the "question" degenerates into a physical confrontation... It's called the "Stand your ground" law. And guess what, bucko... this may surprise you.... but it's not just for white people. All GI Janie had to do was touch him... and the law is in effect.

The time of the shooting was over 10 minutes after Zim first called 911..........
And if he could hold a conversation with his ho then he could have called the cops.........
uh.. dumbazz. I can't believe this has to be explained to you.. but a feeble mind IS a feeble mind... so here goes: Trayvon's conversation with his girlfriend was interrupted by GI Janie at the start of the attack, but unluckily for the wannabee copper, the cell call wasn't ended. And again, unfortunately for GI Janie, the girlfriend heard EVERYTHING THAT WENT ON. Cryst, you backwoods, snot nosed inbred bigots are too stupid to even construct a plausible lie... "if he could hold a conversation", my ass!! ROTFLAMFAO!!

Bingo... and according to the girlfriend, who heard it all on the cell.... GI Janie started the physical confrontation and the "Stand your ground" law is in play. Really... do you think the prosecution is going to waste sh!tloads of taxpayer's money on this if they didn't have a solid case?? And puleeze... don't give the racially motivated charge bullsh!t.... because there's a lot of other case out there that would be cheaper and easier to accomplish that agenda.

Fwankie, Fwankie, Fwankie... you're the one always running away. You jump on here, spew your verbal diarrhea, the POOF... your gone. Never seem to be around back up your statement. So here we go again:

Trayvon Martin - no criminal records of any kind. Nothing, nada, ziltch, bumpkiss....

Thug Zimmerman - has been charged with assault of a Law Enforcement Officer, charged with assault of bar patrons and lost his job as a result, charged with domestic violence culminating in a restraining order issued against him, rape of a child (pedophile), perjury, giving a false statements, passing himself off as a Neighbourhood Watch captain (they never even heard of him)....

Now Fwankie, Fwankie, Fwankie.... in all honesty... who here is living the life of crime?? Eh, Fwankie?? Be careful... your answer will reveal a lot about you.... and Fwankie.... don't go running of now... eh?

Tee Hee. You play as much hockey as an atheist plays b ball in his church's gym. What's more, hockey players won't play with fairies in figure skates. Or just maybe, you've been the puck.

Hey goofball, Zimmerman had hair on the night he was attacked, remember? Martins knuckles were bruised which was consistent for someone who just sucker punched someone.
Why do you ugly white women like enwords? Is it because no self respecting white men will have anything to do with your crazy fat asses?
Martin's knuckles were not bruised, he had one small cut below his left ring finger knuckle.
Zimmerman's head was bald enough to see the trickles of blood. Definetely not enough hair to grip, and lots of oil to mix with the rain.

I'm certainly not ugly. By 'enwords' I guess you're referring to my Black husband? Fat ass? No, he says it's perfect especially when I wear jeans. And we're both a little crazy at times, that's when we have the most fun.
