<quoted text>Kidnapping isn't just trying to take someone. It is trying to restrict their movements. If Zimmerman grabbed Martin and initiated the fight as I believe he did, it was legally an attempted kidnapping of a person who was a minor under Federal law.
Once again what you think doesn't matter. There is no witness. Still wouldn't be kidnapping moron.

The Government TV "news" is finding their efforts to incite weather change "news" hysteria among the public is losing its effectiveness. Apparently "the news" people believe if they can plant a feeling of injustice into the minds of easily incited violence prone Africans, they will be able to increase the price they charge for airing increasingly annoying advertisements.

It's called suspicion. Guess what moron he was right. He was intoxicated. Maybe the police would have just gave him a citation and released him to his dad. We will never know because he decided to attack and got shot before they got there.
Do you think it is appropriate for citizens to call in every possibly intoxicated person they see. Being intoxicated on private property isn't illegal.

If I were inclined to get intoxicated, I could sit outside on my front porch and get falling down drunk and the pd couldn't do a damned thing about it. Neither could the neighborhood watch.

Gated communities are private property even, the streets.

Again, Zimmerman did not have the kind of probable cause a police officer would need to make an arrest.

You defenders of Zimmerman are fanatics, completely unwilling to listen to reason.

For starters my child is not a thief and a dope head. My child wouldn't be allowed out of the house after being suspended from school and using drugs. My child would have simply walked in the house and told me or he would have gotten off the phone with the fat girl and called 911. He wouldn't have attacked someone. He would also pay his taxes and not be a prostitute.

The media continues to divide Blacks and Whites cause we let them. We all need to wake up. The fact is while we are fighting each other over this case, unemployment, created racism, budget crisis, the debt all the things which divides this country by the elite world bankers. They are thinking of ways to enslave us all. There's no doubt something went very wrong that rainy night in Florida. Don't let this divide us as a nation. If this ignite a war between us the elite will put us under Marshall Law and we'll be doomed as sovereign citizen. It's time to take this country from the wicked and rich. This case was decided on 7/13/13 add it up equals 33. Looks masonic to me. WAKE UP!

It's all over folks, the song is finished, the fat lady has left the stage and now all of you dim-wits can get back to those three thrilling pieces of crap on the tube that you all love, Dancing with the stars, American idol and that uplifting nothing, The Voice.
I don't hate him and if I ever were to meet him, I would by the gentleman a drink. Now I hope that he can sue the bimbo in the States Attorneys office. Another liberal kiss ass democrat.
Sparkle, here you couldn't give it away, so stay where you are I hate to see people starve.

Once again moron you are wrong. It doesn't matter if he was on private property. It was not his property and he was in public view. Also he didn't attempt to make an arrest.

LOL. So who are they going to rely on dimwit. They were the ones that responded. They processed the scene and did the autopsy. Are you really that stupid? He has already been cleared by the Feds. Try another stupid angle. We will be waiting.
Wait and watch. The FBI only looked at the issue of whether or not Zimmerman was racist. That question is irrelevant to me.

I would begin by interviewing the girlfriend of the boy's father. A lot of questions about Zimmerman I would be asking her. Likewise, I would want to know Zimmerman's entire schedule for the previous week. Everything he did.

I would have liked to see a toxicology report on Zimmerman at the time if it was ever taken, but it appears the pd dropped that ball too.

If so, I would start looking at criminal charges against the pd investigators.

They certainly dropped the ball when they let the paramedics clean up Zimmerman. Everything Zimmerman was wearing should have been seized as evidence, but apparently it wasn't.
