People who face up to the criminal element will always be attacked by the very criminals they try to rid society of until we get rid of our corrupt political system. We will get back to normal, at some point in time. We aren't Rome, and we will prevail.

Oh he was "racially profiled"? Wow no shit! He was wandering around scoping out victims in the rain while wearing a hooded sweatshirt hiding his face and yakking on a cell phone in an area that he didn't live in and was unknown to neighbors. Oh by the way since Zimmermans obligation was to spot and point out to police any suspicious activity he also mentioned after a direct question that he looked BLACK. Well the little son of a slut wasn't white so what the hell? Sure his race was mentioned. And he then stalked Zimmerman as he tried to follow him to report his exact location to police. Those assholes always get away. Bingo George nailed this one after he attacked and should be rewarded for it!

No proof that any jewlery was ever stolen. He never assaulted any bus driver. Did not belong to any gang (other then Pop Warner football". As far as pot smoking,, odds are that if you are 17 you have smoked pot. So according to you anyone who has smoked pot is a violent criminal.

Allen Goin was arrested, was he not? This has nothing to do with Trayvon's murder. Nothing.
I'm amazed that so many of you still don't grasp why there was public outrage at the murder of Trayvon.
I'm amazed that you still believe the screams for help were coming from Trayvon Martin.

His orally-fixated obsession with young boys is disgusting!

He has projected this filth in the majority of his 67,000 posts.

If he wasn't in a wheel chair he'd be in prison where he belongs!

I wonder if the dad tracked down Zimmerman, and shot him dead, could the dad get away with claiming "self defense"?
You are making a judgment without any actual knowledge. That is dangerous.

Of course, one should hope that the family would have the strength to deal with their son's loss, just as we should hope that Zimmerman should get justice...whatever that should be.

I would hope that those who strongly believe that this tragedy is racially motivated, would work to delimitate the daily killing of young black men by other young black men.

<quoted text> Part by part. First you state you don't care if Zimmerman was defending himself. There we have your whole story in a nutshell but lets go further. You don't know for a fact that if Zimmerman had stayed in his truck if he would've been attacked or not now do you? No you don't. Remorse has nothing to do with self defense. Remorse is an emotion. And has nothing to do with the case. Self defense is a right that every law abiding man woman and child has. Zimmerman has not invoked the stand your ground law because its not necessary in a case of self defense. Should he be declared guilty he can then invoke that law. As well as appeal any verdict. An attacker does not have to be armed to defend yourself. That's the law like it or not. If I was beating you to death would you just allow it or would you do everything in your power to stop the attack as Zimmerman did? As I stated your first sentence answers your problem. Now take that you dimwit and I could've just said GFY! Hahaha All you crime appeasers are all just alike. If he had, If he hadn't blah blah blah. But HELL NO that black thug met up on a man that didn't want to be a victim. And heres another one too!
I guess you didn't read the second sentence...had he STAYED in his car when the 911 operator told him to, he would not have ANY REASON to defend himself. In Trayvon mine, before GZ, he was walking home from the store to dad's house, In GZ mine this black guy is up to no good...these ass holes always get away with this.

Very wishful thinking, that is not going to happen. Zazz and a few others on this blog are on the very low level of society who are out to get Zimmerman. They are hateful people making up all kinds of crap as they go.
