Idiotic. Because Martin didn't say "OMG he has a gun" doesn't mean he didn't have it out. He was walking, fast, AWAY from Zimmerman at the time, remember. Only at the last second did Zimmerman accost him. And he obviously had the gun out when he SHOT the kid.<quoted text>
There is absolutely ZERO evidence that Zimmerman had his gun out. Even the girlfriend, who claims she could "hear" someone shoving someone else on a phone and even know who was shoving who didn't say that Martin said "OMG he has a gun" or anything of that nature. Again, you're just making up stuff to support crucifying this guy.
I'm a woman, so my reaction to being approached on the street at night by a stranger would likely be different than that of a 17 year old athlete. If I put myself in that athlete's place, when I first noticed someone apparently following me, and if I was afraid of that person, I would have hustled my tail to where I was staying, and safety. Surely a 17 year old athlete could out-run a 28 year old guy 100 lbs heavier than him? What I certainly would NOT have done is to try to hide, try to hide my face, and continue to meander along talking on the cell phone...at least not to a girlfriend. I MIGHT have called 911 if I was truly scared.
Oh, and please show me the law that says that it is illegal to approach someone on the street. I've apparently been breaking it all my life since I talk to people when they're walking in my neighborhood, or when I am. I guess we should all go to jail!
The kid didn't run, ergo he's guilty? Is that your take? In fact he told his girlfriend he wasn't going to run, probably because a) he realized that'd makehim look more guilty, and b) because he was an athlete and had some pride - he didn't want to be seen as 'running away.'
Your defense of a murderer is outrageous, but I suppose expected if you're a white Floridian.
