A vote for a Democrap is a vote for the Criminal Job Creator Party and the Treyvon Punk Apologist Party.

too bad he and his lawyer lied to the court about his passport and financial status.
it does however show the court that he is duplicitous, which of course if frowned upon by the court.
if he lied in court, to the judge, then what else has he been lying about?
Everything, especially his injuries and the killing of TM.

George proved himself to be a liar about substantive matter and he has NO credibility. Nothing he has said can be trusted. What happened, when and how he got injuries, and to what extent, NOTHING from him is trustworthy.

Very well put. All over the world we see the masses try to rule by emotions and not facts. I have seen well educated men from good family's turn into shallow shells reaching out for and handhold as they fall.
I'm happy to hold my voice and see what the jury rules unlike the weak-minded fools out there.

I seems it would only be natural to wonder about his credibility, at this point. "IF' Mr. Zimmerman is sitting in jail, this will change the 'speed' of the trial, or more accurately going to trial. This will put more pressure on Mr. Zimmerman's defense team.

Here's another one lol. When did he kill a 'child'

I do know for -FACT- he killed a older teen.

This child killing must be something the left leaning media is hiding for some unknown reason.

That statement is just as dishonest as that same said media showing a photo of the teen that was taken a few years ago to make us belive he was still a child.

Most crime around here is caused by teens his age. White, black and hispanic. Funny how almost all of them have hoodies on.

He cannot lie about the evidence. There are witnesses, and forensics to reconstruct the shooting.

When I was 17 I was thought perfectly capable of killing a Man with My bare hands an a number of weapons, had fought in a number of brawls against armed attackers in some very violent areas. I grew up around racism an police corruption. Stood for Civil rights Native rights an seen the people who got thier rights become as corrupt as those We opposed........blacks are givin' Zimmerman the same deal rednecks used to give them..........Wouldn't own a hoodie seen to many on surveliance videos garment lacks Class any how........

Your guess is as good as mine...
It seems obvious enough that Martin had initiated a physical confrontation & then began to beat Zimmerman...
From that point onwards, the rest is history...
I agree.
Trayvon thought Zimmerman was after him for stealing the lighter from the store. Trayvon thought he had gotten away and then couldn't go home and get in more trouble with his dad. If you think about it his life was cut short because of a lighter.

I agree. The same is true of all the witnesses and Trayvon's girlfriend's account. It doesn't seem like there is any good evidence.

What is wrong with people these days? The poor guy gets attacked and fends off his attacker and now has all these problems he doesn't deserve.

But there is so little evidence.

It was raining and everything washed away and nobody saw anything.

I think there would be more sympathy for the victim if the poverty pimps had not tried to pass Treyvon off as a 13 year old child. Once it turned out he was 17 years old, had problems at school, was under the influence of pot at the time of the shooting, he was as guilty as zimmerman with the shooting.

A 6 feet, 3 inch football player is not a child. He was grown up enough to steal some jewelry, find a pot dealer, maybe even deal alittle himself. That is not a child.
