Only a hothead and/or an idiot unwilling to comply with Florida law would be on patrol carrying a weapon as a neighborhood watch member without a Class "D" license. Since they can only do so with Class "D" license and Class "D" license requires the firearm to be visible, Zimmerman proved he was unwilling to comply with the law by concealing his unauthorized weapon while on patrol. In Florida, it is a felony.
Pay attention.

...Zimmerman broke no law.....arrest record is irrelivent. They already said he "did not" profile. Pay attention. Traygone violated Z-mans rights whether he felt he was creepy or not. Ya cant attack someone for just following you. Assault is crime. No??? Following....is not. No?

Jentel said Martin told her he was right outside his fathers house. She said he was running before the call ended. Why did he run from one end of the building to the other?

As I pointed out earlier, the only reason Trayvon didn't have a record was because the school police chief ordered his officers not to file criminal reports against students so that the school crime statistics would appear to be much lower. Hurley instructed his officers to reduce the number of arrests of black juveniles, that is why the stolen jewelry was marked "found items" instead of "possibly stolen items", which would have guaranteed a criminal investigation.

No teen is a "teen angel" but Trayvon was the antithesis of anything close to the definition of "teen angel" I would take it that defacing school property with graffiti, imitating a gangsta, burglarizing homes, selling marijuana, seeking a handgun, displaying pictures of handguns(one of trayvon holding a handgun), and marijuana growing, bragging about fighting and bragging about being a gangsta is not being a teen angel but very close to it?

lol huh?

Whats tragic is that during one of Trayvon's tweets his friend warned Trayvon to stop fighting and that he might get one planted in his chest referring to a bullet.

Sender- "So you just turing into a hoodlum?
Trayvon- "Not at all, I'm a gangsta."
Sender- " Boy Don't get one planted in ya chest."

Just a little of a portent wouldn't you say, a foreshadowing of what was to come?

There's the real truth about this "kid".
He wasn't going to let someone get away with watching him or asking him what he was doing.

Docs: Justice Department facilitated anti-Zimmerman protests

A division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) was deployed to Sanford, Florida in 2012 to provide assistance for anti-George Zimmerman protests, including a rally headlined by activist Al Sharpton, according to newly released documents.

The Community Relations Service (CRS), a unit of DOJ, reported expenses related to its deployment in Sanford to help manage protests between March and April 2012, according to documents obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Let us hope teen angel Trayvon is looking down at the trial of his killer Zimmerman.

Btw, didn't Zimmerman have martial arts training when he was not as fat as he is now? Was that training interesting to you?

Diversities best will probably be out looting and rioting if Zimmerman is found not guilty. They will loot their own black owned stores while claiming it's justified in the name of outrage for social injustice, they will kill or injure white people when Zimmerman is not even white himself, and all the while 95 % of black homicide victims in America will be killed by other blacks.

Sender- "So you just turing into a hoodlum?
Trayvon- "Not at all, I'm a gangsta."
Sender- " Boy Don't get one planted in ya chest."

Not relevant huh?

What's ironic is you completely ignore that two witnesses have testified that Trayvon Martin was on top of Zimmerman. Anyone can get martial arts training, that doesn't mean they are efficient at self defense, in many cases, it's the clumsy people who lack dexterity who take those courses it doesn't guarantee that they still aren't clumsy and awkward.

Also there is something I can't figure out, why couldn't Rachel Jeantel read her own letter and if she didn't write it what is going on schools doesn't teach students to read cursive by senior year?
English is not Ms. Jeantel's first language. Her sometimes inconsistent answers were generally the result of her misunderstanding the questions. However, all things considered, I thought she came off as believable.

Except that Zimmerman DID profile, as his own words indicate. Also, who attacked whom is unclear.
The very fact that you think "Traygone" is amusing indicates where you're coming from.

All irrelevant. It still comes down to who started the fight, and why Zimmerman shot and killed Martin.

There is about 15 African Americans killed by other African Americans every single day in America, there has been over seven thousand African Americans murdered by other African Americans since Trayvon died. Yet the black community is outraged by the death of a black man at the hands of a person with mixed ethnicity, that is where there outrage( lies)

lies- To exist or reside
lies- To convey a false image or impression
