<quoted text> Zimmerman didn't stalk anyone.
Zimmerman admitted he was following (stalk/creep/crawl) Mr. Martin and was told by the dispatcher not to continue following him (stalk/creep/crawl). Enjoy :

At 2:17, Zimmerman’s voice wobbles and he starts breathing heavily into the phone, indicating that he has started running.

At 2:22, without any prompting other than the aforementioned noises and breathing, the dispatcher asks “Are you following him?” to which Zimmerman responds,“Yeah.”

At 2:26, the dispatcher says,“Okay, we don’t need you to do that,” to which Zimmerman responds,“Okay.”

Your lack of command of the English language is amazing.

Following is not stalking.

That is why they are two different words.

You are a racist.

The statement that only whites are racists, of course, is [email protected]
Give us Webster's definition of 'racist'? Oh that's right it has nothing to do with 'race'? You are making a 'joke' right? Ax Sheila Jackson Lee, or any other racist Congressman?

Please....... continue the rest of the story. Never mind, I will.

A couple of seconds after Zimmerman said he would stop following Martin, the brushing of the phone stopped. Zimmerman's breathing returned to normal. HIs voice eventually returned to his normal quiet tone as he finished his conversation with dispatch. He had said he lost sight of Martin.

The conversation lasted about another minute giving Martin way more than enough to run home. But he didn't. When he attacked Zimmerman, it was less than 100 feet from where Martin lost Zimmerman.

And now (As Paul Harvey famously said) you have the rest of the story.

<quoted text>There are many comments that are not personal. All black people blah blah blah some say. I do think it's actually futile and a lot of rambling. You said black people move into white areas with ghetto ways. All black people are not careless. I keep my yard clean etc. My neighbors are all black and they do the same. 85 year lady who lives next door has a beautiful garden that she works in everyday. At night it's not loud. People should stop stereotyping others. I know there are a lot of good white people out there, in-fact some in this forum are against racism and I can understand their frustration. Those same people have sense enough to know that there are some black people who are racist. I do understand that if I don't like the negative talk I can stay out of the discussion and that is what I intend to do. Everybody have freedom of speech. I brag on Jehovah's Witnesses because they truly are peaceful people with good reputations. I don't agree with all their teachings but their conduct speaks for itself.
I never said that JW"s are bad people, just annoying people. They come here once a year banging on my door and I don't appreciate it. If I don't answer, they stuff their flyers and literature in my doorway, again, I don't appreciate it.

I don't know where you live, but I can promise you that over here, every area that had an increase in black population had an increase in crime, police activity, and violence. This happened in the two neighborhoods I grew up in and the neighborhood I currently live in now. Our city had to stop forth of july fireworks because every time they had the event, blacks would start gang fights and riots.

Many of our good stores closed up and left because of robberies. We have a shopping center here that years ago, was known across the country. Today it's a pathetic looking place where half of the stores are unoccupied. Same holds true of the once largest mall in the country which is only five minutes away from the mall I'm speaking of. Closed up.

the government played a part in this as well. HUD moves their inner-city lowlifes into nice neighborhoods, and they soon bring their lowlife friends and family with them. In fact, our school had to create an investigation team to weed out the kids who didn't actually live here. Inner-city people would come in and bring their nieces, nephews and even neighbors to attend our schools that their not paying for.

I guess you forgot you told us that this pedophile followed- according to you- this boy (who had every right to be where he was at) for no more than ten seconds.

And the full accounting was he was stalking Martin for three minutes.

According to the phone transcripts.

Didn't Nicole Simpson go dirt-napping and lots of children in Sandyhook? Didn't lots go dirtnapping due to the Boston Marathon bombing and Colorado theater mass shooting. I do believe that 100s of Americans went dirtnapping due to the 911 attacks.
What is your point? Your hero, zipperbutt, will go dirtnapping. It will either be sooner or do to natural causes. Either way, it will be in federal prison.
Wishful thinking on your part. You forget how politics comes into play here.

DumBama will put a leash on Holder because we are approaching a very important election for him. They don't need to pzz people off with this Zimmerman thing. Most experts agree that if prosecution stood no chance in the murder trial, they definitely stand no chance in a federal court.

DumBama wants to turn this country into a Socialist utopia. The real Americans in Congress are standing in his way. In order for him to finish off this country, he needs to have Democrat leadership in Congress.

<quoted text>Since you live in Cleveland and you are talking about blacks moving into your ghetto hood, then that would make you white trash. White trash are normally the most racist and biggest bigots. That is because white trash hate that they are the lowest of the low, so they wear their skin as a badge of honor. Usually, palish and pinkish. I guess they are jealous of blacks and whites who can tan without their skins peeling, flaking and becoming sore-like looking.
Have you ever heard of the Eastern block, poorest area in the world, whites, and Appalachian mountain people of the USA, poorest people in the USA and white.
White trash doesn't have any problems with blacks being around. In fact they embrace blacks that move into the area. Sure, they may fight from time to time, but it's no different between white trash fighting each other. After all, when in jail, white trash often have black cell mates.

<quoted text>And a neighbor of Trayvon testified that she saw Zimmerman chasing Trayvon from left to right...punches being thrown.
Then she heard a shot and saw Zimmer straddling Trayvon, looking down at him and not offering assistance. Zimmer then began pacing, appearing to look for a way out, knowing the police were on the way.
The coroner also testified that the bullet seemed to enter from the back and exist from the front, which conforms with the witness who saw Trayvon face down.
When the officer got there, unlike Zimmer, he began to try to save Trayvon, the child witness. He then asked Zimmer what happened and Zimmer said that Trayvon had punched him repeatedly and banged his head against the concrete at least 25-30 times. The officer told Zimmer he was lying and that his head had not been banged repeatedly nor had he received multiple facial punches. The officer arrested him and said at the minimum he was guilty of manslaughter.
Five of the six jurist have said that Zimmer murdered the boy, but the prosecutors did a poor job. Now, the Feds will have Zimmer locked away for the rest of his life. Don't worry, that might be less than a year, considering he is a pedophile.
And now (As Paul Harvey famously said) you have the rest of the story
Do you make this stuff up as you go along or what? Only one juror said she thought Zimmerman got away with murder, and even that was out of context.

The forensic expert (of 40 years in the business) testified how the bullet entered Martin, and it was not through the back--it was through the front. He supported Zimmerman's version of the event explaining how Martin was indeed bent over Zimmerman because of how the bullet entered his shirt and then his body.

Martin's autopsy report

"The Volusia County medical examiner found that Martin was killed by an injury resulting from a single gunshot to the chest, fired at "intermediate range", between 1 and 18 inches according to a forensic expert.[13][Note 7] An FDLE analysis of Martin's body and clothes described the distance as "a contact shot".[117]"

<quoted text>In all honesty, I am getting this stuff from your above link.
During the trial, friends and family members of both Zimmerman and Martin testified as to who they thought the voice was, but expert testimony regarding voice identification was not allowed.
"After telling the police dispatcher that Martin "ran",[174] Zimmerman left his vehicle to determine his location and ascertain in which direction Martin had fled.[168][175] The dispatcher asked if Zimmerman was following Martin, and Zimmerman replied "Yeah." Then the dispatcher said, "OK, we don't need you to do that." Zimmerman replied with "OK" and stated that Martin got away."
1. Zimmerman: Martin "ran",
2. Dispatcher: "OK, we don't need you to do that
3. Zimmerman: "OK" and stated that Martin got away."
Now, using what brain you, whatever little is left. Zimmerman left his vehicle to see where Martin went. Why? 1. Martin ran. 2. But, why would he being looking for Martin. 2. "OK, we don't need you to do that.
Now, the dispatcher told Zipperbutt not to pursue, so why would Zipperbutt say "OK" and stated that Martin got away." You see, the dispatcher told Zipperbutt to let him get away but Zipperbutt instead got out of his car and pursued him.
I guess, Zipperbutt being a pedophile and molesting a 6 year old girl gives him your support.
Funny thing, the 711 clerk says that Martin paid for the skittle and Ice Tea, a very unthing like thing
Might I suggest that you listen to the 911 call? If you need the link, feel free to ask.

The dispatcher said "we don't need you to do that" AFTER Zimmerman was already out of his car. By that time, Zimmerman was already on the next street when he said "OK." He was walking back towards his vehicle when Martin attacked him. What did you want him to do, keep walking away from his truck?

Yes, Zimmerman ran after Martin when he took off running. More than likely to keep an eye on him so he could point Martin out when police arrived. Zimmerman made countless reports to police about suspicious people in the past, but never hurt or approached any of them.

Of course it was Zimmerman screaming for help as John the witness testified to. Why would Martin be screaming for help? For somebody to hold Zimmerman down while he took a break? And let me ask, have you ever seen a fight where the person beating the ship out of the other guy was screaming for help? Use whatever little of your brain you have left to explain that one.

As the defense pointed out during the trial, Martin was less than a football field away from the house he was staying at. Yet, there were four minutes that went by between the time Zimmerman told dispatch he lost sight of Martin and the shooting. Why in the world would Martin stop there UNLESS it was his plans to attack Zimmerman?
