As you apparently haven't done any research, the 911 transcript reveals Zimmerman told the dispatcher on the phone while he was still in his house the young man had seen him and was walking towards him before running away.
The question is why didn't he keep running and go home?
A totally innocent teenager would have. One who had his own anger issues and wanted to act out on that anger might not have.
This is where your inner racist kicks in. Fuck what Trayvon Martin didn't do, it ain't about that. What did George Zimmerman do, it's all about that! There could've been a thousand reasons as to why Trayvon didn't go straight home. He could've been waiting for a ride or, for a friend that didn't know where he lived. That has nothing to do with anything. He was minding his business &, the 2 would've never crossed paths hadn't Zimmerman played cop. He never would've gotten out that car if he didn't have that gun. Look at it in these terms. If it wasn't the murder of a young black man but, the rape of a young white girl &, all sequences happened exactly the same up until the altercation. The pervert stalked, followed, & raped the girl after she ran &, could've went home but, didn't! Are you saying she's at fault because she chose to not go home for whatever? Your argument is totally biased. You may have felt sympathy for Martin but, you read right wing articles &, was looking for a reason to discredit the black boy in the hoodie! What happened during the fight is obsolete. The beginning & end result tells the whole story! Trayvon didn't stalk or follow Zimmerman &, he didn't wind up shooting & killing him. The notion that you people think that, it's legal to follow & confront someone that tingles your suspicions is ludicrous! That's what initiated the confrontation. Tevin Martin ran, Zimmerman gave chase, enough said!

The cognitive dissonance about the dollar never fails to amaze me. People know in their bones that their dollars will be worth a lot less in the future…yet they continue to trust and cling to the dollar as a store of value. They invest in things denominated in dollars that pay interest well below the rate of inflation. Or they go for all out gambling in the stock market to have a hope of outpacing inflation enough to build a tiny bit of wealth to leave to their grandkids.
Commodities like copper with an industrial demand may fall in price — even drastically — in the midst of a global depression. But the 30% or so drop in the price of something like copper will be running hard against the US government’s need to inflate away the value of the US dollar by having the Fed create new money to buy up more and more government debt. Inflation tends to outpace falling prices due to falling demand. The folks at Wells Fargo understand this and seem to be trying to help clear up some of the public confusion.
The irresponsible practices of the Obama-Bernanke Fed to create the illusion of economic growth will lead to ultimate disaster.

The $100 million price of the trip to Africa was not a 'First Family vacation trip',but a foreign affairs trip to one of the poorest continents on the planet by the most powerful leader of the superpower United States of the Western World. Do you know the difference?
Yes.

National defense is a Constitutional function.

Gifts to African dictators are not.

If Trayvon was white, he'd be alive. Period.

Well, it's pretty obvious to anyone that isn't batty, that she believes blacks don't BELONG in HER neighborhood...she has to go visit them in theirs (like an outing to the zoo) so she can comment on their cars and clothes and food stamps...

I tried to watch the defense closing arguments, but frankly, I think O'Mara is coming off as quite a yawn. You think even he's beginning to be tired of pretending Georgie Pudgy isn't a total loser wwho thought he could get away with killing a black kid to make himself feel better, bigger, more relevant. And why on earth did he allow Georgy to give that Hannity interview? Money?

Typical response from people who can "afford" to spend $120 per month on a luxury, but claim inability to purchase their own medical insurance without taxpayer subsidies.

Read it again, Batty...he's talking about the CLUBHOUSE that he's seen the A-hole apparently casing. You're a fool--glad you'd never be consider part of jury of my peers. "Dispatcher

Which entrance is that that he's heading towards?

Zimmerman

The back entrance…(expletive)(unclear)

Dispatcher

Are you following him?

Zimmerman

Yeah.

Dispatcher

Ok, we don't need you to do that."...Georgie Pudgy's calling from his SUV, trailing Trayvon.

So have you figured out yet how Martin was supposed to know who Zimmerman was?

Or have you decided to make it a non issue after creating the bruhaha?

True but, this next prosecutor needs to hammer away at Zimmerman's inconsistencies & pick apart O'Mara's closing arguments in about an hour tops. He has to dehumanize Zimmerman & focus solely on the actions that sparked the altercation &, tie that to the end result. What happened during the fight is of no importance. It was a fight. Chances are, at some point & time, both of them were on top. He has to make the jury believe that Zimmerman shot Martin because he bit off more than he could chew!
