It's all ONE sequence.
You cut up the murderous act of Thug Zimmerman as if it was some Broadway play. It wasn't.
There were many things that happened that led up to Thug Zimmerman's evil deed, but it was ONE sequence, ONE event.
You only break it down to justify that criminal's behavior. No matter how you slice it, no matter how you dice it...
The Thug Zimmerman WILL face Justice!
It's one story, but two different acts. If I am having a dispute with my neighbor about his barking dog, go inside the house and cool off, come out the next day and sucker punch my neighbor, it was about one issue, but two different events. The first is the verbal argument which ended when I went inside the house, and the second is when I came out the next day and punched him in the face. That's assault.

That's what took place that night. Zim followed Martin, and when he stopped, that ended the first act. The second act came after Martin attacked Zimmerman. Related? Yes, but still two separate events.

Now had Martin stopped, punched Zimmerman while he was behind him, then I would agree that Martin had every right to self-defense and Zim should go to jail for murder. Even if Martin attacked Zim behind the houses and broke his nose, I would have to consider the slight possibility that Zim attacked Martin and Martin acted ins self-defense. But when I see the extent of the injuries Zim suffered, the fact he was screaming for help, his inability to retreat from the situation because he was pinned down, there is nobody that's going to convince me that Martin acted in self-defense, but acted as an assailant.

I'm not, you're the clueless liar.

You have nothing and no one to dispute this, you've been asked repeatedly, all you do is come up with new lies.

"The new perspective came from the original police report which noted Zimmerman had a bloody nose, gashes on the back of his head and grass stains on his back. Obviously there had been some sort of fight. Zimmerman had told police that as he moved to go back to his vehicle the teenager asked him if he "had a problem." When he answered, "No" and reached for his phone to make another 9-1-1 call, Zimmerman said Martin declared, "Well, you do now," and knocked him to the ground. The young man then bashed his head into the concrete several times and in the scuffle, Zimmerman claimed, he shot Martin in self-defense. An eyewitness backs up this account saying the person in the red shirt (Zimmerman) was being beaten by the person in the dark hoodie (Martin). ABC News then broadcast grainy video of Zimmerman arriving at the police station in handcuffs and none of the injuries listed on the report were visible. Days later, ABC enhanced the footage and apparent head wounds were suddenly visible. "

First of all, I was talking to Here Is Stupid.

Are you Here Is Stupid?

Answer me that question, then I might go into detail to rebut that crap you posted.

You're the same Fool who told me on yesterday that you think I talk too much, now you want me to talk some more.

Make up your wishy-washy do-called mind.

I think they understand it, but don't like what they understand. You can't attack somebody like Martin attacked Zim and expect that Martin's actions will be considered self-defense by a jury. We don't have self-defense here, we have assault and battery. The gunshot was a defensive act due to being pinned down and having the snot beat out of you. I guess the Martin people think that because Zim ran after Martin for five or six seconds, that gave Martin the legal right to come back later and get even.

That may work in the hood. Those are their laws. But in a court of laws, that doesn't work.
