<quoted text>Son, it's not the legal procedure people are concerned with...

... it's the events that occurred during this killing.

You just keep confusing your perceived rights with this particular event. And legally speaking, the law doesn't care what you think or believe.
It's obvious that idiots like you don't consider rights because you have another agenda or your just that ignorant when it comes to legal procedure. As I said it's over your head.

If you weren't a stupid Canadian you would know that in the state of Florida there is no lesser charge he can be convicted of. They can't prove the case so there is no need for a plea. Dumb Canadians.

And yet you feverishly kiss the azz of GI Janie who
1) Has a prolific history of violence including:
a) 3 resisting arrest and assault and battery charges against law enforcement officers - stayed because GI .
c) Domestic violence resulting in restraining order issued against him
d) Continuous rape of a minor female - still being investigated.
2) Has a prolific history of lying including:
a) The night GI Jane killed Trayvon Martin he told police that he had a clean record ... heh heh heh! ya... right!
b) When GI Janie was booked into the Seminole County Jail, he told the booking officer that he had never been in a pretrial diversion program before, but he had.
c) When Thug Zimmerman offered an apology to Trayvon's family during an April 20 bond hearing, he said he didn't realize Trayvon was so young. But in his call to police moments before the shooting he described Trayvon, who was 17, as in his "late teens."
d) Both GI Jane and his wife, GI Joe, lied directly to the courts saying they had no savings… when in fact they had $135,000 in blood money donations. Proven when confronted with his taped jail house phone call to his wife instructing her how to "hide" the money.
e) In his initial statement to the police, GI Jane tells police that “Martin” jumped out at him from the bushes. Stuck by that story, until police told him “there were no bushes”. Story changed.
f) In is initial statement to the police, GI Jane tells police that when he and Martin came face to face on that sidewalk, Martin said, "What the (expletive)(is) your problem, homey?" That statement gradually morphed into: You, you got a problem? Trayvon’s girlfriend, who was on the phone with him, heard Trayvon say:“Why are you following me for?”
g) In is statement, GI Jane tells police that when he told 911 dispatch he was losing sight of Trayvon, that 911 dispatch told him to move the car to get a better view. On police review of the 911 tape, no such conversation occurred.
h) When answering the question, why did you get out of your truck. Brainiac GI Jane told police that he was going in the same direction as Trayvon… to get the name of the street he was on. Police, to this day, are still wondering HOW you don’t know the name of the only three streets in his neighbourhood…. where he has lived for 3 YEARS.
i) Injuries sustained in the struggle come no where near the severity of the described attack.(Getting your head banged on the pavement would surely have resulted in skull fracture… bone bruising at the absolute bare minimum.)
j) No defensive wounds on GI Jane hardly indicate a LIFE AND DEATH struggle.
k) Crime scene photos show Martin's body was a significant distance south toward the house where Martin was staying and NOT where Zimmerman claimed during his re-enactment for the police.
3) Has a prolific history of stupidity:
a) A resident, who attended an emergency homeowner's association meeting after the shooting on March 1, told reporters how one man was escorted out because he openly expressed his frustration because he had previously contacted the Sanford Police Department about Zimmerman approaching him and even coming to his home.
b) FORTY-SIX count'em... FORTY-SIX 911 calls in the past to report such horrendous crimes like... kids at a pool making too much noise, a kid pulling a wheelie on his bike, kids playing on the street after school, a neighbour leaving his garage door open!! ROTFALMFAO!
c) Instructs his beauty queen on how to hide money from the courts ON A MONITORED JAIL PHONE!
You're a lying sack of shit for starters, but it doesn't matter if GZ just molested a child, when the scumbag, racist, women's jewelry stealing, white female bus driver assaulting, criminal Traygone assaulted him , GZ had every right to put a bullet in his ugly face.
The violent dumbass got what he deserved.

And yet, Zimmerman doesn't want it to happen. He said that under oath today in court. Wonder why.
Of course, we all know he is prone to lying to judges, cops, and anyone else he speaks to. ROFLMAO.
I wonder too, a mistake in my opinion, as clearly he had a right to shoot the violent criminal Martin who illegally attacked him for no reason.

Good riddance to bad rubbish, saved a future jail cell for some other thug.

He was on the phone in the truck. The thug decided to run like most suspicious people so he tried to give directions to the police where he was running. It's totally legal. The law was broken when the thug attacked Zimmerman. It will be an acquittal.
What was it he said? Oh yes....

dispatcher:
Are you following him?[2:24]

Zimmerman:
Yeah.[2:25]

Seems Zimmerman has contradicted you(ie... called you liar), son.

As for Zimmerman being attacked, all you have is Zimmerman's word. And we know he lies.

This is a murder trial. You need to get this straight in your head.

Get over yourself. It's not about you. It's about Zimmerman and Martin.

I just can't believe how ridiculous you are! Z followed him for a few seconds for the purpose of providing information on his whereabouts. He stopped as soon as the dispatcher told him, "we don't need you doing that". Zimmerman said he lost him and that was that. There was no stalking, following, harassing or anything. Martin had more than enough time to go home so obviously he wasn't fearful in the least. It was dark and Zimmerman was meeting the police by the back gates and on his way he was jumped by Martin and beaten to a bloody pulp. No one came to his aid as he was screaming for help. There was definitely some monkey business going on by his house because the kid had to have witnessed the entire thing. Strange daddyo had no clue about the activities that occurred right outside his door. Very suspicious.

Son, it doesn't matter what you think Martin should or should not have done.

He did nothing illegal. The defense is free to bring up that up is they so choose and prove it as well

Martin couldn't have been beaten to a bloody pulp. He was lucid enough to claim Martin was going for his weapon, fight off the so called bigger individual, pull the weapon out while flat on his back, cock the weapon and fire at point blank range.

For someone who people who portrays as helpless and the victim being so much bigger and stronger while on top of Zimmerman, it's amazing he even could pull the weapon out.

You people can't pick and choose which pieces of evidence you're willing or unwilling to accept.

You need to take the whole kit and kaboodle.

If he punched Zimmerman in the face and broke his nose. Martin certainly did something illegal. Florida law says one must believe they were in serious danger of grievous bodily harm or death to use deadly force. Even if the prosecution shows that despite the beating Zimmerman wasn't in danger of grievous bodily harm or death, that isn't good enough. They must convince the jury that Zimmerman didn't believe he was in danger of grievous bodily harm or death. How do they do that? Let's face facts Zimmerman was pleading for help for a bit over forty seconds while Martin tried to bang his head on the ground which should convince most any one on the jury that his belief was justified.

If a round is chambered you just pull the trigger on the Kel Tec and it is such a small handgun that it would not be that difficult to get out of a belt holster even in that situation.

Witnesses heard a man screaming for help and saw Zimmerman on the bottom with Martin on top. Easily suggests that Zimmerman was screaming. The tests on the tapes will not help the prosecution because they have already been proven unreliable. Try to catch up on the case a little. You're way behind.
Uhhh... they are extremely reliable.... 99% reliable. Used in court cases all the time.

Only problem is there is no evidence Zimmerman confronted him. One of the many reasons he will be acquitted.
There absolutely IS evidence. Trayvon was on the phone. His girl friend heard the entire confrontation. That is why the defence isn't invoking SYG. They know they don't have a prayer.

Lying?? ROTFALMFAO!!! Exactly which point was a lie??'splain it to me Lucy.... And dumbazz... I already told you... the jewellery wasn't stolen. If it was stolen... it would have been reported. The Sanford police have said that the jewellery has not been reported stolen in ANY jurisdiction.... Not reported... therefore not stolen. One would think that if they had jewellery stolen... they would report it.... if nothing more that for insurance purposes. So who's lying now?? and interesting, it appears you have no qualms with GI Janie molesting a minor. How quaint!
