<quoted text>Yeah? Do you think George is guilty or not guilty? What evidence leads you to your conclusion?
I believe George is not guilty based on the timeline of events matching with the distance from his truck to the confrontation and eye witness accounts ,and of course the physical injuries.
Yeah?? did you or did you not say that the burden of proof rest on the defense?
I will answer any of your questions that you might have

"...To see how one of these defenses works, let's look at the pending Trayvon Martin trial. George Zimmerman will undoubtedly argue that he acted in self-defense as defined by Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law. There's absolutely no question that he killed Martin. If he can successfully prove he acted in self-defense, the law says he cannot be convicted of murder. He will go free...."

Clear enough?
Yeah

George left his vehicle looking for an address.Even if George was walking a bit further still does not give trayvon the right to beat George up. I base my opinion that trayvon confronted and attacked George because of the injuries george sustained. Remember the witness who said he saw trayvon throwing punches mma style. Remember trayvon did not have one single injury
Clearly, you start from the middle like many Zimmerman supporters.
Yeah

So Zimmerman was lying when he said he was following Martin?

He did not.

The burden of proof of whether or not this pedophile is also guilty of murder rides with the state of Florida which has already proved it had enough evidence to arrest him.

The burden of proof - if you could read to the end of sentences that have more than nine words in them - he was referring to was "stand your ground" defense: if you are arrested for killing someone, e.g., a teenage boy who was on a sidewalk where he had a perfect right to be, the burden of proof shifts to you, not that you a guilty of killing someone- you have killed someone- but you meet the criteria of SYG.

The pedophile was not out for a walk.

For you to say so shows you are as open-minded as you insist you are.

The fact is: the pedophile was stalking this boy who had every right to be right where he was at.

The fact remains: the pedophile had already "convicted" this boy of a crime he had not committed- and this is on tape.

So we have this armed cop-wannabe out at night stalking this boy who had every right to be exactly where he was at.

Explain the circumstances that you would be alright with this pedophile shooting your kid in the chest. You sent him to the store to pick up some milk and butter for dinner and an hour later the police call and your kid is dead on the sidewalk a hundred feet from your door.

Its all good if trayvon was just walking on the sidewalk minding his own business but the evidence shows that he attacked George ,.. What would you do if you were being vigilant in your neighborhood and were attacked by a stranger?
Yeah

In this case, because your CLAIM doesn't match the transcript of Zimmerman's call.

Why is it I need to educate you on the events?
Yeah

And the burden of proof still does as long as the self defense claim is held.

Would you like me to post the link again for you??
Most everyone starts out trying to communicate with that moron but she will make claim after claim and never back it up
Last year she claimed to have posted a link that proves her claim about burden of proof but she has never been able to post a link
Awwwww... funny how you can't post a link to defend your comments about me claiming Zimmerman is guilty.

It's as if it doesn't exist!

He was not stalking Trayvon,If he really was out to get him the way you claim he was then he would have never called the 911 non emergency police line. Because of the recent burglaries he was using caution and being vigilant,especially since trayvon matched the description of recent suspects.

wHY CANT YOU EXPLAIN WHY George has all the injuries and trayvon has nonE aND WHY witnesses see trayvon ontop of george beating him.

Also i can say that if my son went out to get milk and butter he would have his pants pulled up and no cut through houses looking at others property;

And god forbid if he was approached by a concerned citizen he would nit attack that person he wuld answer the authority figures questions. If feeling threatened then call 911 or run or if need be defend yourself, however there is no proof that george attacked martin

He was looking for a definitive location to give to the dispatcher and police on their arrival. Yes if that meant George was heading in the direction that the suspicious person was then shall be it. There is no law that states a concerned citizen cannot walk around the block with a concealed weapon.. There was no malice intent,, he was looking for a specific address otherwise he made it clear he was on his way back to his truck
