AND because it makes absolutely NO SENSE, for Zimmerman to have been doing ANYTHING else but "watching" KNOWING POLICE were ALREADY on the way.
Zimmerman had no sense. No sense to stay in his truck, no sense not to be armed, no sense to identify himself as Neighborhood Watch.

He is not blameless.

... and I agree with them. Its been the media and on here its really brought y'all's racism to the fore. Why else does Carol firmly believe Martin started it when there's no evidence to support it? In fact, the only evidence about who started what or who may have been the aggressor points to George's actions recorded in the 911 transcripts.
Beyond that, all we have is the often conflicting statements of the man facing murder charges.
"Ya'll's" racism?

You must mean NBC. The liberal media's racism.

It's okay. I know how desperately you want to believe a lie.

Black alternate juror: "The verdict was the right one."
Martin's parents, their lawyer and the prosecution all said this case was not about race.
Give it up.
Liar!

Martin's parents said they still believe Zimmerman, who identifies himself as Hispanic, racially profiled their son.

"Obviously, any time you have a person that makes an assumption that a person is up to no good, that's some kind of profiling," Martin said. "Was he racially profiled? I think if Trayvon had been white, this never would have happened."

Martin's parents said they support the federal government looking into the case. The Justice Department announced Sunday it plans to review the case to determine whether federal prosecutors should file criminal civil rights charges now that Zimmerman has been acquitted.

One black kid is not responsible for all the senseless violence perpetrated by all the other members of his race. You want to be considered guilty and targeted for all the crimes of Dumbya? I don't.
why did Obama make a speech about Trayvon but not the violence inflicted on this baby?

that's the point. similar to when he too quickly opened his mouth to comdemn the white police officer in boston.

Background Checks at Work

TOMBALL, Tex.(CBS Houston) Ron Kelly is a retired Army veteran. He used to fire tanks cannons and machine guns while fighting for the United States.

However, when he applied to the FBI for the right to purchase a .22-caliber rifle from Wal-Mart, the FBI denied him, citing a minor drug possession conviction back in 1971.

Kelly was still in high school at the time, and was reportedly sentenced to just one year probation. Two years later, he enlisted in the U.S. Army.

I went on to serve 20 years, Kelly told the newspaper Stars & Stripes.I had a top-secret clearance. It is amazing that they wont let buy a gun for a misdemeanor 42 years ago.

He added,I am ashamed of the way my government has treated me.

Background checks are required by federal law for anybody wanting to own a gun, and over 881,000 people in Texas have had background checks prior to purchasing firearms this year alone.

Only a few, including Kelly, have been rejected.

When he was told by Wal-Mart that he did not pass his background check, he applied a second time and was once again denied. Despite the setbacks, he plans to keep fighting.

I am not going to give up, Kelly told Stars & Stripes.I want to have a gun.

Well now, that's just their opinion, isn't it, Homer?

The FBI after doing an exhaustive investigation at the behest of the Attorney General found no evidence of racism in Zimmerman's past.

So give it up, Homer. You're becoming part of the problem again.

<quoted text>No, you're full of shit! Given your background of war, you should know better. I've never personally took a bullet but, I have alot of friends that have. In nearly all instances, either before they were shot or, after they did their best to end the assault. If you're in a no win situation meaning, the threat is too close to run, any man that loves life will come out swinging. If you say otherwise, Itruly doubt your military career! You think war in the streets is different than any other war? My Aunt owns a club a couple cities over. We decide to go 1 night. I don't smoke but my brother & his boys do. While waiting in line, they were smoking&, 4 dudes behind us walking weed. My Aunt says" y'all gotta put that out." My brother dubs the blunt but, the dudes behind us don't. My brother say " yo, put that out." The dudes take offense like " you ain't talking to me." Fight breaks out, like a close quarters scuffle. 1 of the dudes pull a gun &, let off a shot. nobody ran! We beat the about outta then dudes & left with his gun. I'm beginning to think you're lying about your service career!
You're full of shit. If you get shot with anything with any punch, when you're shot, you're not capable of carrying on a physical fight... unless it's just a scratch (makes me want to sing a Beatles song...) Wherever you're hit, that part of your body is disabled. Then, your body will go into shock. You'll last as long as the adrenalin lasts, provided the bullet didn't hit any bone or vital organ. In other words, you just got nicked, not shot.

Please stop. You're embarrassing yourself. You haven't got a clue about what's coming out of your mouth.

I might add that getting nicked by .45ACP will take you out of the fight. A 9mm won't.
Guess which one you'll see when you come through the window at my house?

Why are you so 'tupid? Is it on purpose or does it come naturally?
"Juror E54, who was one of four alternate jurors in the case, says he felt the injuries Zimmerman sustained during the altercation were the most convincing piece of evidence in the trial. He also said he believed it was Zimmerman who was screaming for help in a 911 call played during the trial, not Martin.
"Juror E54, also relied on the testimony from the witnesses who heard Zimmerman and Martin fighting the night of the shooting. He said the verdict was 'accurate.'"
Juror E54 is a black man.
How many times does this make that I've had to get you up to snuff?
You'd think you'd do some research first by now.
Juror E-54 was a middle aged white man__sorry!

The was a potential black male juror but he was a news junkie, trial attorneys don't like news junkies, trial junkies, bloggers etc. etc.

Just imagine trying to find a jury in a room full of stooges like you?
