Nope.

One of his eight great grandparents was black... or partially black.

Hardly qualifies him for a free prescription to JET magazine.

Maybe more relevant than smearing the victim and his family, would they show Zimmerman's past anger problems:
(1) In July 2005, Zimmerman was arrested for “resisting officer with violence.” The neighborhood watch volunteer who wanted to be a cop got into a scuffle with cops who were questioning a friend for alleged underage drinking. The charges were reduced and then waived after he entered an alcohol education program.
(2) Then in August 2005, Zimmerman’s former fiancé sought a restraining order against him because of domestic violence. Zimmerman sought a restraining order against her in return. Both were granted.
And he shot a worthless gigger and got a good Citizens award for it.

If you threw down a big black dill-do there would be no doubt that barefool was up to no good.

The cops would get a chuckle out of it before they let you go.

If the pedophile had had his head bashed against the cement, he would have had serious injuries.
My apologies. We don't seem to be talking about the same case. I was speaking of the recent George Zimmerman trial and his involvement in the death of Treyvon Martin. You seem to be talking of a different case altogether (one that is no doubt of imaginary origin)

There are several things that would have changed the outcome:
Martin's father act like a father and made sure his son didn't leave that house since he was suspended.
Travon calling the police when he noticed Zimmerman following him.
Martin using those four minutes he had after he and Zim broke off to go to the house he was staying at.
Martin not attacking an adult with a firearm.
Martin not running away, and simply walk back to the house he was staying at. Running away is very suspicious.
We now know from an interview with Racial Jeantel on CNN that she knew Martin's intent was not to kill Zimmerman, but just "whoop ass." How would she know this unless Martin told her that's what he was going to do? He either told her, or she suggested to him that he attack Zimmerman.
Either way, that comment alone puts to rest the accusation that Zimmerman was the attacker and not Martin.
All pure assumption. The fact is that Zimmerman chose to trail a kid who was doing nothing wrong.

Also, maybe Martin didn't walk back to his house because he didn't want this stalker to know where it was.

The jury found no such thing.
The jury found the state was unable to prove beyond a reasonable shadow of doubt that the pedophile was guilty of second degree murder or manslaughter.
Troll,there is not such legal bar of "beyond a reasonable SHADOW of doubt", you moron. You are a truly disturbed lying Hyphenated-copropile. The verdict was indeed, "not guilty"-on all charges. Intellectually you are a failure, lying about settled fact makes one wonder if you are competent enough to be left alone with sharp objects or household chemicals.

Oh really?...Sounds like pure speculation to me!

But here's what's not speculation though....Martin had 4 minutes to run 80 yards through the darkness to get to his home.

How could Zim have seen that far in the dark, and in the rain?

Witnesses stated that visibility was only about 10 feet!

Hummm....

You're the one who's speculating here.

Zimmerman wasn't charged with watching, following, waddling after, approaching, or asking as none was a crime.
He was charged with shooting a hole in the Hyphenated-thug and thank GOD, he was acquitted after the jury heard all the evidence. The Hyphenated-thug had every right to be put where he was as he had it coming for the unprovoked attack: spread eagle,dead, with a hole in his Hyphenated-thug heart.
This is how you 'cut and paste', comrade coprophilic troll. How'd you like it?- back at ya!

After you are charged with a crime- in this country- you are "not guilty" until proved guilty.
After you are charged, and you make a plea, you are "not guilty".
You have to have to go back to the court and have your charge EXPUNGED. Even after the judge drops the hammer and declares you NOT GUILTY.
Not "innocent".
You are no longer ever innocent.
Juries are charged with the responsibility of determining not if a person if someone is "innocent" (did not do the crime) but whether or not the state proves beyond a reasonable doubt that the person is GUILTY.
A concept that is understood (or should be) by anyone who has ever did his civic duty- which may leave you out and certainly people like xxxPinocchio who proudly declares he manages to avoid his civic responsibilities.
I cannot help you are too stupid to accept this.
This is America comrade coprophile, it is "INNOCENT until (and only if) PROVEN GUILTY in a court of law". NEVER not guilty until.... Twist the truth much, you POS?

His great grandfather was apparently black. His great grandmother was apparently half black. My point is that he is multi-racial. His mother is obviously not "white".
