Maybe Zimmerman can write a sequel about being a potential victim of a lynch mob and you can be the gut carrying the rope, gramps.

We both do not agree on such a thing. That's your opinion, and you're certainly entitled to it.
I support the rule of law. That's why we no longer have Mr. Lee as a police chief. It isvwhy child killer and thug Zimmerman was finally arrested and charged. It's why that same thug is in a jail cell.
You are letting your obvious bias cloud what little logic you have.
It is ok, though, as you are not needed to ensure justice in this case. You just stay on the sidelines. Keep yelling to the top of your lungs.
Maybe thug Zimmerman will hear you. Obviously, the legal system does not give one iota what it is you or your cohorts have to say.
That isn't the rule of law,it is lynch mob mentality. The same mentality that groups of blacks use to attack white people because of Trayvon or just because they can.

"German spy agency faces shake-up in neo-Nazi case
Email this Story

By GEIR MOULSON

BERLIN (AP)- The case horrified Germany, a nation where the Hitler era still casts a long shadow: a small band of neo-Nazis suspected of killing ethnic Turks and others in a seven-year terror spree, undetected by security forces until a botched bank robbery brought down the group last year.

Now, Germany's domestic spy agency faces awkward questions about a possible cover-up after revelations that an official destroyed files related to the investigation of the neo-Nazi group. The case prompted the government to announce this week that the agency's head for the past 12 years will take early retirement.

Before he leaves, a parliamentary committee wants to question Heinz Fromm and the official responsible for the files on Thursday about whether the material was destroyed by mistake or deliberately.

The case had already proven deeply embarrassing to the agency, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, because of the failure to solve the killings of eight Turkish small businessmen and a Greek between 2000 and 2006 and a policewoman in 2007.

For years, authorities suspected organized crime rather than racist violence. Only when two suspected founding members were found dead last November after a botched bank robbery did the so-called National Socialist Underground's activities come to light.

Even though only a handful of people have been identified as active members of the group, the case shocked Germans: While concern about far-right violence flares periodically, there had never previously been anything like the campaign of murder attributed to the group. Nazi symbols and propaganda have been banned in Germany since the end of World War II.

Critics contended that as authorities concentrated on Islamic terror, they ignored the danger of ultra-right extremists. Relatives of victims said police tried to pin the murders on organized crime, drugs or ethnic rivalries, but never examined the possibility of right-wing terror.

The emergence of the ring prompted authorities to examine whether the group was linked to other unsolved crimes targeting immigrants; they suspect that it was behind a 2004 nail bomb attack in Cologne that injured 22 people, mostly of Turkish origin.

The failure to identify the Nationalist Socialist Underground despite nearly seven years of assassinations has served as a wake-up call to improve cooperation between Germany's tangle of federal and state-level security organizations - a system that has its roots in a desire to prevent any one authority having too much power after the repression of the Nazi era...."

Those fascist nazis were left wing

Fascism is really just another form of socialism. Fascism was established by Mussolini who was the leader of the Socialist Party in Italy and an early hero of the communist party.

He was not some angelic 12 year old choirboy. His Facebook postings clearly show someone under the influence of the worst of the worst kind of rap music, he talked like a gangster/thug wanna be.

I'm convinced he assaulted the white bus driver, another indication of his racism and violent nature.
Must I indicate to you again that "pussass cracker" is a hood vernacular for ALL police officers OF ALL RACES.

So far on this thread we have determined the Zimmerman/Martin encounter appears to be justifiable homicide and that fascism is left wing.

<quoted text>Zimmerman is such a liar no one will believe his contradictory claims. He has no credibility and doesn't have the balls to testify.

Well, that's not the only reason. He can't testify under oath because he would be subject to cross examination. Even though his attorney begged Lester to let him testify under oath without being subject to cross such testimony would most certainly be the death knell for him since he can't tell the truth.
Now why would an attorney ask for such a thing if his client was innocent? I'm so happy I'm not the only one here that sees through this crap.

<quoted text>An expert in biometric voice analysis, Tom Owen of the Owen Forensic Services LLC (also chair emeritus for the American Board of Recorded Evidence) has unequivocally concluded that after rigorous analysis of a 911 tape, the screaming voice on the tape WAS NOT THAT OF GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. He used a baseline audio sample obtained from GI Jane, himself, for comparative analysis. He could not confirm the voice on the tape to be Trayvon Martin's only because he did not have a baseline audio sample of the teenager. Ya... the witness heard someone screaming... but it wasn't GI Jane. And if it wasn't GI Jane... well...gee.. I wonder who it was???

Oh... and btw... analysis is 99.8% accurate.
I also read a lot about this and I do agree that Zimmerman is not telling the truth. Gotta love voice analysis.

Could you imagine beating on a person for over forty seconds whose nose you have already broken and whose head you are slamming on the cement while that person is bleeding from the back of the head and all the while they are pleading and screaming for help? That is so brutal the victim would be justified in shooting the perp. Oh wait, he already did.

I've posted this before, but will again. As anyone that runs/jogs enough can tell you, when you stop running after getting out of breath, your breathing doesn't immediately drop pace to normal. You 'pant' to catch your breath. More so if you're out of shape. If you slow down to a jog or fast walk, you have to keep your breathing regulated to keep going. I know this because my husband and stepdaughter are personal trainers helping me get back in shape and they are always making me 'walk cool' after a workout.
Also, put yourself in the shoes of a 17yr old. If someone were following, then running after me (as a 17yr old), I would not lead that person to my home where a younger sibling/friend was and put them in danger too. I would run away, hide, and wait for the person to give up. The assumptions that Martin didn't go straight home and have a snack because he was looking for a fight are very close minded. It's also a huge assumption that Martin knew Zimmerman supposedly stopped chasing him and took his time with the call, so he had plenty of time to just walk to his door. If that were the case, why wouldn't Zimmerman have told the dispatcher where he was, and was heading (to his truck's location) ISO, having LE call his cell for a location?
You don't make any sense. There was no possible way Zimmerman was running while talking to the dispatcher. Walking yes,running no. His speech and breathing were not consistent with someone running. Additionally, GZ was not in well enough physical shape to carry on a conversation and run at the same time which is why he took a few moments for his breathing to slow.

If the teen was concerned about someone following him, he would go right home, ask for help from the surrounding homes, hide, call his dad,call police, have his girlfriend call police, etc. He didn't do any of those things which suggests he was not concerned at all. His body was found within a few feet of where he was staying which supports my claim that he had plenty of time to get in his house, if he were afraid for his safety. Zimmerman would have had absolutely no idea where TM was if he remained hidden because it was dark and Zimmerman lost sight of him. Martin would have noticed GZ wasn't walking behind him as well. It would be next to impossible to lose sight of someone in the dark and miraculously within minutes find them.....unless of course.......TM wanted to be 'found'. There can be no other explanation for this. If TM were afraid, TM would have gone home or hid within the shadows of darkness. Zimmerman would never have stumbled upon him on his way to the car. If TM were afraid, he wouldn't have sucker punched GZ to the ground. For some reason, TM made his presence known to Zimmerman who was walking towards his car. That suggests TM was being combative and confrontational. GZ was attacked by TM and GZ shot him in self defense. It's not complicated.

Dr. James Wayman, a San Jose State University expert in the field of speech science, told The Daily Caller that he questions the grounds on which Owen based his analysis.
Wayman also said he would be willing to testify against the admissibility of Owen’s findings on the grounds that they don’t meet the criteria required for evidence in federal courts.
“There is no history of, or data on, the comparison of a questioned scream to a known speech sample,” Wayman said.
The problem, he said, is that the two voice samples were recorded in difficult acoustic conditions over different cell phones.
“Even if we were to have Mr. Zimmerman recreate the scream under identical conditions with the same cell phone,” Wayman explained,“it would be difficult to attribute the scream to him without a sample of a similar scream from Mr. Martin under the same conditions. This is clearly not possible.”
Reached for comment, Owen told TheDC that he has conducted his own study —“The Owen Study”— of more than 400 different pitches, screams, and voice disguises. The study is unpublished.
He explained that he has attempted, without success, to obtain a “voice exemplar” from Zimmerman, consisting of recordings of both his speaking voice and a scream.
And Wayman, he said,“assumes that the voice software is not able to make a determination on each voice independently.”
Wayman fired back in a later email exchange.“There is no accepted standard regarding metrics for voice comparisons,” he insisted,“either if done forensically or using automated comparisons.

The Sentinel also contracted with Ed Primeau, a trained audio engineer and registered investigator whose expert testimony has been used in dozens of criminal court proceedings. Primeau used a more intuitive approach to determine that Zimmerman was not the person heard screaming on the 911 call.
“That’s a young man screaming,” Primeau told the Sentinel.
Comparing the human voice to a symphony full of varying timbres, Primeau wrote on his blog that the “male voice yelling for help … cracks like teen male’s does when going through puberty.”
Dr. Philip Rose of the Australian National University told The DC that scientific experts refer to Primeau’s method as “naïve voice recognition.” His influential 2002 book Forensic Speaker Identification draws a major distinction between naïve and “technical forensics” voice recognition.
“Naïve voice recognition is so prone to error that it is acknowledged that it is worthless as evidence,” Rose said via email.
A forensic expert’s job, he said, is to assess the strength of evidence, not to estimate the probability of a hypothesis. And “the value of the evidence depends … on the similarity of the samples.”

Considering Zimmerman's voice sounds much like a pre pubescent teen, I have to wonder how Primeau could make such comments with a straight face.
