The difference between opinion, and fact. Zimmerman's blood WAS found on Martin, on the bottom of his sweat shirt. Thats fact, introduced into evidence. Another fact....the EMT testified that his nose appeared to be broken, and whether it really was or not is logically irrelevant. And for the 10,000th time, HE DID show his injuries to the world and the jury, but this was not not not not not a Stand Your Ground argument, that was not even pursued....it was merely self defense.

Boo Hoo Hoo An EMT also said my hand wasn't broken and it was in 4 places! But I got the x-rays to prove it. It is relevant when you talk about necessary force. Manslaughter should have been the first charge for him. There was no need for defense with a pistol. He was/is just like De La Rionda said, "a wanna be cop." I'm sure he will have a lovely life looking over his shoulder and trying to protect his wifes fat behind to her expectations. Oh and by the way I thought that son of a gun was black so no I didn't think it was a racial issue. Just a coward using the simple way out, shooting.

I'm from Tepic,Mexico and yes, I know where Mexico is. Yes you are right about the Blacks, but,wrong about the rest of it. Whites and Browns" are considered "White Hispanic" (Google most wanted in Los Angles for instance). I have no idea what a "persian" is though and there are no "native Americans" in Mexico. That is an American term.
You are simply not quite as smart as you think you are.huh?
I think it was an American president who termed the word "hispanic".

And now the feds want to bring hate crime charges against GZ
not surprising, just a duck shooting, they are to have a double jepoardy protection clause, if the judicial process and lawyers would really like themselves to be view as professionals (i know they are just incompetents) they would honor their code and let the matter be ended, their constant being wrong and then to not follow their code in the attempt to impose injustice just makes them look even more pathetic, the next move should be the remaking of the judicial system and eliminating the bar associations licensing so that ethicall persons can start improving a vile system, also like japan, prohibit attorney s from eligibility to become a judge, a judge needs to be ethical not trained in law

Zimmerman was not guilty because that was the only verdict allowed , the law is very clear on this matter. If your mad have the laws changed. But also take responsibilty for your communities first, the number one killer of blacks is other blacks , and you`ll be hard pressed to find anyone willing to cooperate with law enforcement. Something happens in my neighborhood, I`d cooperate because thats my home, I want it to be safe.

You wanted Zimmerman's blood on Martin, you got it. You wanted his nose examined, it was....would x-rays make difference LEGALLY, of course not. "Wanna be cop"....those words were used, yes. Their legal relevance with respect to facts and evidence? Precisely nothing. You say "no need for defense with a pistol". The law is absolutely clear.....the need was justified. If you want to change the law, have at it. But don't pretend this wasn't in accordance with existing law.

I took the OJ trial in stride. No mouthing off and no hate because he was judged innocent by his peers. We now have another case of the same circumstances and the darkies cant abide by the law of the land. I think they should be put on a list with muslims for deportation or jail. Im sick and tired of listening to those tribal savages scream racism etc to everything that doesn't suit them.
Im still smiling!

It is sad. Criminals should be allowed to attack people and beat their heads in the cement until they die. That's justice. If I see you following me and decide to turn around and strangle you, then you get strangled to death with no ability or permission to protect yourself. You should just take it.
our problelm is a racist government, and it s up to us the people to eliminate it, we have to stop funding it it will not go away on it own, it will not self correct, we cannot vote our way out of anarchy, we must have it collaspe through not funding then rebuild and bring the operatives in the government, hollywood, media, and especially the judicial system, any claim as to not being able to determine right from wrong carry no weight

Just because trey on was 17, does not mean he was not dangerous. Zimmerman defended himself. Get over yourselves.

Alinsky tactics are evil. They use of Treyvon for politics is evil.

Grand Jury ????

Prosecution holding evidence ???

Editing the words of Zimmerman is criminal.???

President O getting involved ???

Yes. You are right. The primary cause of death of young Africans is violence at the hands of their fellow Africans. Many of that violence is being committed by male Africans who are much younger than Trayvon. The Government cannot solve this problem by lynching non-African "Hispanics" and Anglo White men. If any solution is to be found, it will need to come from the African community itself.
