If you have a heated exchange of words with someone who spilled a drink on you at a bar do you tell people that you got into a fight? No, you don't. If you punch that person in the face you are then involved in a fight and it was initiated gy you.
Cause gz is a pedophile and got beat for it, why else would you stalk a young adult, kinda disgusting huh!!!

A couple of things here. The person Zimmerman talked to was NOT a police officer. This is based on the testimony of the non-emergency operator that Zimmerman spoke to. The person that Zimmerman spoke to did NOT have the authority to order Zimmerman to do anything. Again, according to the testimony of both the operator AND his direct supervisor. The operator had previously asked Zimmerman which direction Martin was headed. Again, according to the testimony AND the tapes played in court. Zimmerman also told the police that he was returning to his truck. http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1307/0... There is no evidence that Zimmerman was not on the way back to his truck.

Zimmerman never said that he, Zimmerman had a threatening demeanor.

Why don't you just end your sh&& right now! Just do it! Your too sorry to stand up for human rights abuses by your own country!
You sit and talk about Americans who get welfare ... And maybe even affordable healthcare ....
But you won't say nothing when Israel gets 8 billion dollars in welfare every year from Americans.
Your stupid! You watch American government controlled / state run mainstream media and they have brain washed you to the point that you believe it is okay for America to murder innocent brown people around the world for no reason!
American drones have a 99 percent failure rate! So every drone attack that America does ... 99 percent of the time ... They kill innocent people , and targets are hit that were not intended to be hit!
It is a shame!
In France , the people protested because the government raised the retirement age a couple of years. 10's of thousands of people protested!
In America ... People wouldn't even protest when the patriot act was established that violated your constitutional rights and all of your rights to privacy!
I remember when Americans protested the Jewish Bankers and Jewish politicians on New York and California. The government had the peaceful protesters beat up! America shot their protesters with rubber bullets , used gas on them , threw gas grenades in their tents in the park in New York! American police officers even ran , hauled off , and punched a 77 year old woman in the face and knocked her down because she was standing up and holding a sign!
So while America was beating the Protesters in the United States for no reason other than protesting Wall Street and the Jewish Bankers that stole your money ...... America went and bombed Libya because their leader did the same thing! Gaddafi was cracking down on protesters ... And America went and bombed Libya and killed up to 50,000 innocent people by some estimates!
So after America murdered up to 50,000 people in Libya .... When 3 or 4 Libyans tried to fight back and attacked the Embassy ... America called it a terrorist attack!
You see how these people operate! America killed possibly 50,000 people in Libya .... But when a couple of Libyans tried to fight back .... American Government run / State Run Media called it a terrorist attack!!!!
America killed possibly 50,000
They killed only 4
And they are the terrorists????
Wow!!!
And dumbasses like you fall for this shit every time!
Hook , Line , and sinker
I'm a jewish banker. I have to make my money somehow.

Freedom does know that the American Government is reading his email and listening to his cell calls because of all the hatred that he spouts off against our government. There is probably a file a couple of inches think about him somewhere in Washington, DC. They probably are planning on busting his door down in the middle of the night, yanking him out of his bed and putting him in a deep, dark jail cell for the rest eternity.

Just sayin'.

At 17 you could join the Marine Corps as an airwinger, and be a helicopter doorgunner blowing away the VC before you turned 18.

The youngest Marine to die in VN was a 15 year old black kid who lied about his age.

My nephew was 6'8" when he was 15 and could've beat my butt.

That might work, but wouldn't it lead to an awful amount of overpopulation in Europe? Not to mention the fact that Native Americans didn't exactly "kidnap" Europeans and bring them over here...:)

Since there were no eyewitnesses to the initial confrontation, it's impossible to say that Martin "turned around to attack" Zimmerman. That's simply not based on facts.

Why? For telling the truth?
You see ....
You believe I should be watched because I don't agree with the government murdering innocent people all over the world!

Wow! What a threat I am, huh?

I am outspoken and I love my country enough to criticize it when it is wrong!

They are trying to figure out right now , what benefits of yours that they are going to cut next to try to balance the budget!

They are figuring out what they are going to take from American workers to balance the budget! They are even closing schools down in Chicago because they can't afford to keep them going!
Rahm Emmanual would rather close American schools down that to cut 1 dollar funding to the state of Israel.

Our country is broke ! We are on the verge of economic collapse! BUT YOUR GOVERNMENT IS STILL GIVING ISRAEL BILLIONS OF DOLLARS PER YEAR IN WELFARE!

YOUR GOVERNMENT IS EVEN BUYING OFF GOVERNMENTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST JUST TO BE FRIENDLY TO ISRAEL IN RETURN! AMERICA GAVE EGYPT TONS OF MONEY AND FIGHTER JETS JUST SO THAT THEY WILL NOT BOTHER ISRAEL THE NEXT TIME ISRAEL STARTS MURDERING innocent Palestinians again and starts stealing their land!

So our government is giving away all of our money , closing down our schools...
But if I say 1 word about it ... I should be watched?

That's insane

The 17 year old was walking away but ZIMMERMAN followed him!

Damn ! He should have took off running when a stalker is after him ?

That's crazy! I guess basically what you are saying is that if a man comes at you in the middle of the night .....
If you try to defend yourself ....
The person after you has every right to murder you!

This is amazing! You racist people are trying to say anything to justify the death of TM!

WELL MAYBE IF GEORGE Z WOULD NOT HAVE STALKED AND FOLLOWED TRAY , ZIMMERMAN WOULDN'T HAVE GOT HIS ASS BEAT

Chicago is closing down "PUBLIC" schools because they have lots of charter schools AND the number of school aged children in Chicago is declining.

That is just one of the many errors in your post. The government is reading your emails and monitoring your calls because you are a paranoid threat to the country.

Zimmerman did not take the law into his own hands. Zimmerman defended himself as was his right. On the other hand, mob rule won over when Zimmerman was charged.
