If he wins, of course that's correct. If he loses, that's another story. He lost a nearly clear cut case of self-defense.

So funny, but soooo true. The judge will have the bailiff to clear the courtroom.

He'd be hardly able to contain his laughter as well.

That LYING Thug ain't gonna go through with it. I dare him to do so.

Which there is no evidence of that either. What we do have is the ten second chase Zim gave after Martin ran on the 911 tape that Zim admitted to. That's it. There is no evidence that Zimmerman pursued Martin after that point. Assumptions and speculation at best. In fact, given that the 911 call lasted beyond a minute after Zim stopped chasing Martin is clear evidence that Zim didn't pursue him.

So now we have this confrontation between Zim and Martin behind the house. If Zimmerman stopped chasing Martin, then how did this meeting take place unless Martin stopped and waited on Zimmerman? It couldn't have happened any other way. Martin was clearly much faster than Zim and the house where he was staying was less than a minute away even if he decided to stop running and walk instead.

Back to the confrontation: Zimmerman claimed that he was walking between the row houses to get an address for the police arriving on the scene. That makes sense. But why was Marin there too? That doesn't make sense unless we can assume Martin's attack was planned which it seems that it was.

How does prosecution take all these facts into consideration and conclude Zim chased Martin and brutally killed him? If you are bias in the case, then you can draw any conclusion. If you look at evidence with an open mind, then it's clear that Zimmerman's account of what took place actually happened. Then throw in the fact that police and investigators originally concluded the same.

<quoted text>The way I understand it, it will go to a SYG trial and only to the murder trial if he isn't found innocent by that statute. This from a legal expert on the radio about a month ago.

The only thing stopping Zim from being totally covered on the STG is because there is no solid evidence that he was attacked. If there was at least one witness to Martin's attack, then he could have sued the city for false arrest.

Now it boils down to the prosecution trying to convince a judge and jury that what is evident really didn't happen that way. Good luck with that. They will have to prove that Zim attacked Martin which autopsy reports show quite the opposite. Could it have happened that way? Perhaps. But again--beyond a reasonable doubt.

Now if that fails and it goes to the murder trial, the prosecution will have to convince a judge and jury Zim had no right to defend himself using his firearm. Given the degree of injuries Zim sustained, it's more than clear that Martin went far beyond self-defense and into assault even if they can convince anybody that Zim (with no witnesses whatsoever) did attack Martin.

As I explained earlier, there is a slim line between self-defense and assault.
And Thug Zimmerman crossed way over on the other side of that line. So far over that there's a DEAD BODY.

No, it does NOT go to a SYG hearing if the Thug doesn't want to testify on his own behalf.

Then, it will go straight to trial. However, if the LYING Thug wants the SYG hearing...he will then be found either covered by the SYG law or not covered by SYG law.

If the judge says he is covered by that law and his claim of self defense is valid, then there will be no trial for him and the state of Florida will reimburse him his defense expenses and he will be immune from civil suits for the death he caused.

But if the judge says the Thug is not covered by the law, then it will continue on to trial in June. And he will not be immune from civil suits, regardless of the outcome of the trial.

You don't need to listen to some "legal expert on the radio". Just read the law. It is very simple. Stop being spoon-fed. Verify things for yourself.

And, no, he couldn't sue the city for false arrest. What "city" are you talking about? Remember, the Sanford Police Department never arrested Thug Zimmerman. At least that's what ex-Chief Bill Lee and SPD says.

The thug was arrested by the state of Florida. Remember, Special Prosecutor Angela Corey had him arrested.

In a Stand Your Ground hearing, the prosecution doesn't need to prove anything. The burden of proof is on Thug Zimmerman.

Didn't the "legal expert on the radio" tell you that?

Little man, that won't make me cry.

The problem is your diminished mental capacity. You can't comprehend what others are saying to you, have said over and over and over and over. Yet, you still have no idea of what is being said.

You never say anything new, just the same thing over and over ad nauseam.

You live in your own little world and don't let reality enter into it.
