Obama just gave the term "Fox Hole" a new meaning. LOL Instead of a Seal team 6 we can have a Beaver team 69. Do away with seperation. Men and women should bunk together. I guess those Conservatives hate women soooo much.

Putting your bad grammar aside: I have been in a number of assaults and I have been too busy to scream (putting aside, not inclined) for help.

This of course is a loaded question: there is no one that says either had an upper hand in the fight.

Would you scream for help if I held you with one hand and had a gun pointed at your chest with the other and you knew I was within a fraction of a second of pulling the trigger?

I know: you would be busying peeing your panties... but would you scream?

What we all can be sure of - beyond a shadow of doubt- is the pedophile thug *is* a liar, so anything that the pedophile says must be seen as he is a liar.

So do first help us understand you have gotten that far in the equation: no matter what else: the pedophile Zimmerman is a liar.

A person who continues to make such stupid statements should change his aliases as frequently as you... perhaps a bit more often.

your reply is more of a comment rather than an answer.

still trying to understand why a man who is delivering punches like an MMA style fighter would be screaming for help?

wouldnt you think that the victim of the physicl attack would be the one more likely to scream for HELP?

i think its clear through all the gathered evidence so far that martin had the upper hand. i guess the injuries that zimmerman received mean nothing to you while attempting to form an honest opinion?

the photos dont lie. ever remember the saying “a picture tells a thousand words”

why do you call zimmerman a pedophile ?

Because that's the way they imagined it happened.

Zim attacked Martin yet had no injuries to prove that Zim was the attacker. Martin with no injuries protected himself from Zim punched him in the nose, blackened his eyes, and beat his head into the cement; all in self defense of course. During this attack..... er, self-defense move, Martin was screaming for help.

This is what they think will pass for Murder II.

It will be a long wait. All the experts say it is Trayvon screaming.

Zimmerthugman didn't need help, he was armed and a man of a mission.

Did you read about O'Mara putting out false claims about Trayvon being an MMA expert? He knows there is a faction who will believe his lies even though it has been proven to be lies.

who are these experts? zimmerman was a man on a daily mission to try and prevent criminal activity from going on in the neighborhood.. he took action by making a call to the police to report a suspcious person "cutting in-between houses...walking very leisurely for the rainy weather" and "looking at all the houses".
can you explain why martin would be screaming for help while beating up zimmerman ..
why would martin hit a man who had a loaded weapon in his hand? if that was the situation. i mean you make it sound as if zimmerman ran up on martin with a gun.
why would martin try and attack a man with a gun?

a witness to the fight described the beating on zimmerman

The witness said that the black male was throwing punches "MMA mixed martial arts style." After hearing a "pop" he saw the black male "laid out on the grass."

Pedophile Zimmerman was obviously someone who wanted to be a cop but who lacked the brains, the disposition, and the spin to be a cop and instead a racist bigot with a Napoleon complex that unleashed himself on this unfortunate black boy who dared to cross his path and fawn over him as he expected.

And as we pointed out: an outright liar.

Of course: we have already established you as a liar when you told us Martin didn't have a scratch on him.
can you proof that it wasn't zimmerman screaming? i cant prove that it was zimmerman screaming and also cant prove that it was martin who was screaming.

if we try and figure this out im sure we can come to a reasonable explanation why martin would be screaming for help while beating the crap out of zimmerman.

if we try and figure this out im sure we can come to a reasonable explanation why zimmerman would be screaming for help while getting the crap beat at of him with a 6ft tall or taller man "17 year old" pinning him down

We are starting with you acknowledging that this pedophile was a liar.

So we do understand you both have something in common.

Funny how you can't prove it.

The state of Florida iosn't going to be allowing fiction to reach the jury.

Best of luck with that, maybe the pedophile will win in the forum polls.

It will be of comfort when they take him in the shower and knock his teeth out so he is better at what he will be doing for the next 18-20.

If it goes to trial.

I see him taking a plea, myself.

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.
lol! It's nice to know you still stick to your opinions on the case son.

Facts are a foreign point for you!
Yeah

wow. So with all that and nearly being knocked "unconscious", Zimmerman was coherent enough to understand what you people claim Martin said as well as the reach for the weapon, so some how, Zimmerman, while on his back, was able to wrestle the weapon away from Martin, cock it, and fire from his back.

impressive son!
Yeah

Martin is dead son. And Zimmerman carried the weapon when he chased Martin.

It's clear who had the upper hand.
