Liar. No wonder you keep changing your name.
Her not attending a funeral has nothing to do with the murder of Trayvon.
No doubt, but lying to police is problematic for the Martins. Did she lie in her deposition? Any information on that?

If the murdered victim were not black one of the racist haters here would disagree with you.
It's really sad that you would accuse people for being racist simply because they don't think Martin was a victim. The facts are the facts. I'm not sure why race is playing such a large role in this case. You have a kid that was black and a man that is Latino. Maybe the fact the media and other racists want to 'get him' because he has a white father has something to do with it.

I'm. Not following it very closely, but unless the witness changed their story to seeing martin drag zimmerman from his truck to a back yard, it still doesn't matter, its evident zimmerman followed him.
What a strange comment. How can you follow someone who has disappeared from sight? If Martin was the innocent as you claim, why wasn't he home? He had plenty of time. The facts prove that he ambushed Zimmerman just outside his house. Zimmerman had no idea where he was because he vanished while Z was on the phone. So the kid is gone and Zimmerman is waiting for the police to arrive. He heads to the back gate and he's ambushed. It's dark and Zimmerman has no idea where the kid is although it appears he finds him with a blow to the head and nose. Your theory is filled with holes because Zimmerman contacted the police. It makes no sense at all that he would suddenly decide to stalk and kill an 'innocent' kid. Were there any other mysterious deaths of other black people in this neighborhood? Surely, if Z were so blatant to call police and then stalk and kill someone, there must be more dead victims.

I am NOT Bill, sweetie. But I have to wonder if you are Be True based on the fact you have answered posts directed to him/her/it? A little projection on your part is revealing, however. Please remain on topic and stop the incessant whining and nitpicking about the personalities in these threads. It's very annoying.

You've never answered my questions about the minor who was waiting for Martin to return from the store. He surely must have watched the commotion outside his door. Any comments?4115

The only racist are the people that use race as an issue all the time. This is only news because of the racist that made it news. We all know if the kid was white no one would care. Of course the parents wouldn't be crying racism then either, it would be a death and a trial and then a verdict, based on if it was a crime or not. Not a big blow out over the race of the kid.

Hunting and stalking? I think you are referring to the thug that ambushed Zimmerman. Z contacted authorities to investigate a suspicious person and he was sure right about the thug. It doesn't look like Zimmerman anticipated the kid was a violent monster or he surely wouldn't have left himself to be so vulnerable to attack. Zimmerman was free to walk in his OWN neighborhood. He had every right to contact police to investigate a suspicous person regardless if he was a block captain or just a resident. Martin on the other hand stalked and tired to kill Zimmerman. If this wasn't his intention then he would have been home well before Zimmerman made his way towards the back gate. I'm afraid all these cries of racism are a result of some serious projection from the real racists, here.

Well that is mean but this person IS annoying as hell. You do realize you will cause this person to distract once again from the topic and focus on the personalities of the posters.

Do you know anything about the minor who was at home during the shooting. Surely, he had to have seen what happened.

You said a mouthful.

Now go back through this thread and see who those very people are.

If you are diligent in your perusing, you will see that they are the very ones who bring up race and use it as an issue and use it to deride others.

Keep up.

I believe a significant part of the case will be when the defense establishes that Martin was going after Georges gun while saying "you are going to die tonight". Martin was unarmed from the start, However the moment Martin attempted to arm himself by taking possession of the deadly weapon "gun"and threatening George while beating him is where the whole story line changes.

Also lets not forget that George had no idea if this suspicious person was armed with a weapon.George even stated to dispatch that Martin had his hands in his waistband while looking at him. So to say that George got out of his vehicle full of rage to follow and CONFRONT a potential armed criminal is absurd.There are no facts other than pure speculation to disprove George..

Really? Zimmerman said he was afraid when he was in his vechicle. Then gave chase with his weapon when Martin bolted.

Would you like to swing on a star?

Carry Moonbeam home in a jar?

Or be better off where you are?

Been looking for a good deal on an ash tray. Most that I have seen are made in China and are either made out of plastic that has been painted with lead, or else thin glass which tarnishes and breaks easily.

Anybody know where I can purchase a heavy duty stand up ash tray or butt-station that comes complete with fire retardant sand or other material that will extinguish cigarette butts on contact?

Fairies wear boots. Where's your buddy bareback been these days? He off getting himself some strange enword crack or what?

You two make a lovely couple, because you two are the only posters on here who support the racist Martin. Altogether I figure you guys have about 6 or 7 alternates.

Just a couple of black fags spewing toxic racial rhetoric against anyone who tries to have an honest discussion about race on here.

GFY!

This is an example of stupidity on George's part and a slow response from police. He sensed Martin was possibly dangerous, you could tell from listening to the 911 call. I doubt Zimmerman expected Martin to be within close proximity to him because if he did, he wouldn't have been attacked in the first place. He would have avoided him until the police arrived. Zimmerman expected the police to investigate and he was doing his duty as a resident and as a block captain. I have no doubt he was going to lead the police around the neighborhood looking for Martin under their protection. This is a case of a guy who isn't the brightest guy but a guy who wanted to do the right thing. He ended up getting ambushed and beaten to the point he had no choice but to defend himself. He was screaming for help and no one came to his aid. Zimmerman probably did put himself in harm's way by walking towards the back gate. He didn't take into account the police may not be there when he needed them. Zimmerman can't be blamed because he wasn't very smart.
