There is no way you can explain the truth or facts to these people. They refuse to hear it. They refuse to accept it. They are eagerly defending a thug with a long arrest record and avidly attacking a dead boy who was unarmed when he was followed, stalked, accosted and shot dead by a man with a Napoleon complex, who should have stayed in his vehicle.
Why should he have stayed in his vehicle?

The Thug Zimmerman apologists always have a tough time explaining how Thug Zimmerman got to the place where he killed an innocent child.
Let them tell it, Thug Zimmerman got there through no fault of his own.
That's but one reason there will be no SYG hearing before the trial.
Thug Zimmerman's explanations just don't add up.
O'Mara said he is not waiving the immunity hearing. Nelson said she would consider having the "Stand Your Ground" hearing during the trial.

It was a major break for the defense regarding “Witness 8.” That’s the young woman we believe to be Trayvon’s girlfriend and who we’re told was on the phone with him in the moments before he was shot to death a year ago.

I am certainly willing to accept truth and facts. I am not defending a thug anymore than you are defending a juvenile delinquent. Martin was unarmed true.. thats a fact. How do we know that its a fact martin didn't have a weapon because of the police report? The crime scene unit found no weapon? or because George said so or all three.

Do not let my gender continue to consume you.

Better not let Ohwell catch you writing posts like that. To her, it is "off topic." When she catches up with you, she will then proceed to write an "off topic" post to let you know your transgressions.

Isn't that funny? She doesn't know that you and I go waaaaaay back, Buffalo Bill.

Remember the days that I would verbally abuse you so bad that you would curl up in the fetal position and start crying worse than a two-day old newborn?

Remember the days you would go into fits and convulsions when you tried to deceive but I threw TRUTH at you?

Those were the good old days!

Remember when Mr. Citizen would hogtie you with Facts and Truth and I would fill your mind with Honesty and Zazz would splash you Goodness and Respectability?

I still get a tickle out of that. And then you just squirmed and screamed for Hate to replace Truth. You allowed Lies to replace Honesty. You allowed Stupidity and Idiocy to consume you and take the place of Goodness and Respectability.

Oh well, we tried. HA!

Now we got Ohwell wanting us get on board with her brand of conformity. Now, when she comes to correct you, you tell her that you march to the beat of your own drummer. Tell her to take her sanctimonious piety and stick it where the sun doesn't shine!

Do it, Buffalo. I know it's in you!

If you won't, I'll make you!

HA! HA! HA!

Now, you can suspect what my race and gender is until the wonderful day you leave this Earth. But just as in the good old days, you'll stay confused!

Buffalo, you're a hoot and a holler!

I'm gonna keep you around a little longer.

<quoted text> because if martin attacked him after he got out of his truck, without zim following him, he would have had to have parked in the back lawn of somebodies house. Its that simple. The dispatcher told him to get back in the truck and the confrontation happened in a back lawn 2 houses away from where martin was staying. Btw if some creep in plain clothes follows me to my house, well I have a ccw.
I'm afraid you are terribly confused. The dispatcher never told Zimmerman to get back in the truck. Where did you come up with that?Zimmerman stopped while talking to the dispatcher and Martin vanished. Zimmerman couldn't have followed him because Martin disappeared. In fact, Martin had plenty of time to get home but he chose to attack Zimmerman instead, right outside his doorstep. I suspect, right in front of the minor kid who was left at home and supposedly alone. Since Zimmerman had no clue where Martin went and certainly had no clue where he lived, how can you even imagine that Zimmerman could follow him to his house in the dark? We know that Zimmerman was meeting the police at the back gate and he was on his way. Unfortunately, he was attacked by Martin while on his way to the gate. Martin could have easily avoided any altercation by going home or even hiding in the shadows. Zimmerman wouldn't have known where he was. Zimmerman was relying on the police to find Martin which was why he called them....and why he was on his way to the back gate to meet them. So I would imagine if Martin was as freaked as you would be, you would have gone home, right? There was PLENTY of time for Martin to have made a leisurely stroll into the back door. He could have even made a little dose of that Purple Drink for his minor friend.

5 black punks demanded my wallet when I tried to get in my car......
I told them to go have sex with themselves and one said he would slit my throat and take my wallet..........
I told him to try and took 5 long fast steps backwards.
He charged me and I triple tapped him in the chest with hot hand loaded 40 S&W black talons.
His heart and lungs sprayed his punk friends and he was dead before he hit the ground.....
The DA said I had a choice to hand over my wallet and that I used deadly force to protect my money not my life as he did not have a knife in his hands.......
My defense proved them wrong.......
Ew, why three shots? I guess I can understand why this case is of particular interest to you. No doubt you would not be here to tell your story with five punks ready to pummel you. I assume the others ran after you killed the one. Did the police catch them?

As soon as you share yours about Thug Zimmerman's LIES.

After all, Thug Zimmerman is the one who is charged with murdering a child who was minding his own business.

It is his actions, not the actions of someone hundreds of miles away, that caused him to be charged with murder.

The scareddy cat was so scared that he decided to ignore the advice of law enforcement. The scareddy cat was sooooooo scared that he dicided to follow the innocent kid that he was sooooooo scared of.

He tells the 911 operator that Trayvon was "running away" from him. But on the Hannity/ThugZimmerman/O'Mara Entertainment-Fundraising Hour, he tells a different story.

Lets not even mention how old he says he thought the innocent child was. His LIES and actions bring into question every and any thing he says. His credibility is shot.

Witness 8 is not on trial and not the cause of Thug Zimmerman following, shooting and killing an innocent child. The cause of that would be that LIAR, Thug Zimmerman.

Since you want to harp on who is lying, start at the prime suspect. And once you resolve his LIES, I guarantee you that any one else's lies that you want to harp upon will seem so trivial.

Give it a try.

Wow! It is unbelievable how martin supporters are so sure of themselves yet they will not answer simple questions brought to this forum.

I mean really what is this whole circle jerk all about with these people. They must be racist. There is no other logical explanation as to why they can be so dead set on George being guilty.. and yet cannot prove nor dispute any facts .

I am not saying to get walked all over but the double standards have to stop.

I can remember the verbal thrashing all the martin supporters gave Georges wife for perjury yet when the chief witness for the prosecution lies under oath they are silent.

Not one single martin supporter has said anything about the star witness lying,and how the credibility of her testimony will be scrutinized

Let's get to the real question.

Why do YOU think Trayvon had a weapon?

We're YOU there?

Did YOU conduct an investigation?

Have YOU located witnesses who said he had a weapon?

Did Thug Zimmerman say that Trayvon had a weapon?

Your question is a deflection on the more pressing questions, such as...

Why would a man chase after an innocent child with a loaded weapon?

What is unbelievable is that a so-called man would chase after an innocent child with a loaded weapon and kill him.

THAT is unbelievable.

At least on this planet it is.

Here we go again.. Always answering a question with a question like some little elementary school girl. Grow up already lady.

My point is that if you are so willing to believe the on scene investigators concluding that martin didnt have a weapon ,,then why are you unwilling to believe the rest of the investigation.

17 is not a child. You are no longer innocent when you are beating someone while threatening to kill them

It was not a crime for George to get out of his vehicle and look for an address.
