<quoted text>There are laws against racial profiling by police in some states, and people are working on one in Florida. I'm aware this doesn't apply to your overstuffed hero Zimmerman, nor am I aware of any specific pursuit laws. But if anyone commits the act of racial profiling, or is in pursuit of someone, he should be ready for any consequences of those actions.
All Zimmerman got was a couple of black eyes, a few scrapes, and a fat lip, and some inconvenience in his schedule. He got off easy.
My personal opinion is that if racial profiling can be demonstrated in someone who is carrying a firearm, whether civilian or police, that person should face severe criminal penalties.
Finally, not only do I think the stand your ground laws are absurd and easy to hide behind, if anyone in this incident should have invoked them, it was Trayvon Martin. Put that in your hookah and smoke it.
Partly correct. If Martin turned around and hit Zimmerman during the chase, you would be correct. But that's not what happened.

What happened is that Martin easily outran Zimmerman and Martin stopped between the houses and went no further. He waited for Zimmerman and then attacked him. Martin made no attempt to call police nor any attempt to go to the safety of the house he was staying at.

Stand Your Ground is not the legal permission to hold a person down, beat his head into the cement and bust his nose. SYG is the a law that does not legally require a person in conflict to remove themselves from a heated or potentially violent situation even if it means using deadly force.

Racial profiling is legal by police or citizens. If (as in this instance) criminals are described as a certain race or gender, then of course you don't stop people who don't fit that profile. The people robbing homes in that complex were described as young black males. So what's Zimmerman or the police supposed to do? Stop white kids with red hair and suspect them?

In the US, we know who the enemies of our country are. They are predominately Arab and very religious. But for political correctness (which you seem to support) what do we do? We are strip searching white nuns and children and let the Arab people jump on board the plane with no questions asked. That's the liberal way of solving a problem.

In Israel, if you're an Italian and look like an Arab, they pull you out of line at the airport, search everything in your luggage and even your person, and then if nothing is wrong, they let you board the plane. That's why you've never seen an airplane incident where terrorists were involved. They racially profile and ignore political correctness.

Once more, in case you may get it this time...
According to Florida law, it is up to the state attorney to press charges against the captain. Shellie can sign all the papers O'Mara wants her to sign, but it is a decision that's up to the state attorney on whether to charge the captain.
There is an investigation underway. If Shellie's signature on a piece of paper would exonerate the so-called captain, then there would be no continuing investigation.

It will not surprise me if you do not.
Carry on.
Stupid appeasers tickle me a lot. Lets do this Mr Bigshot. I tried to bet anyone any amount of money that George would be found not guilty a few days after he was falsely accused and formerly charged. For some reason that even a lying blind fool such as yourself could see there were no takers. So here we go again. Ill bet that if George Zimmerman is charged with anything regarding todays 911 phone call by his soon to be ex wife it will result in the same verdict. Not guilty of any wrongdoing.

In a trial by jury, the law is not some pristine gold standard that always gets it right. The law is what the jury says it is.
No..... the law is what our representatives say it is. In this case, the law says that murder is somewhat premeditated and planned by the offender. It also says that a CCW holder is allowed to use his or her firearm for the protection of themselves or others if there is reason to believe such persons are in jeopardy of serious bodily harm or death. Zimmerman absolutely every reason to believe that when he was attacked and used his firearm after being beaten so badly and used that firearm as a last resort.

There is nothing hard about law. Words have meanings.

Trayvon was a punk and the world is better off without him, the only good thing he ever did was out a anti White racist in the White House.

This great grandfather repeats his invitation. As for the rest of your post, stick it where the sun don't shine. You're not only a creepy racial bigot, but a yellow-streaked one.

Shellie probably saved her life today by calling 911. Now if Zimmerman decides to murder her it will be much more difficult for him to claim self defense, again.

His true colors are coming to light.

He made his fan club happy today. I'm sure they will once again defend his indefensible actions.

. Zimmerman meant to kill because he lied about the concrete path location. Zimmerman said he shot Martin because he was slamming his head on concrete. Dead body found more than 12 feet away from concrete.
. Also, witness saw Martin smearing blood over his skull with his right hand.....
. Martin died trying to run, hide from a creepy looking stranger in the dark alley who could have been a Jeffrey Dahmer....

It goes to show how uninformed these Martin people are. They didn't read much about the case, never listened to the police recording of Zimmerman, nor did they view Zimmerman's reenactment of the shooting.
They get their information from left-wing blogs and hope the posters there are telling the truth which is usually not the case.
Once again, you are full of shit. You know nothing about this case despite posting about it for more than a year.

The police would not allow Trayvon's parents to listen to the audio. That's why they first went to an attorney. That's why they were FINALLY permitted to listen.

They sat in the chief's office and listened to everything.

You're a liar and an idiot.

All the rat wingers who think Trayvon laid in wait for Zimmerman are delusional. How would Trayvon know the thug would get out of his vehicle and hunt him down? He thought he had gotten rid of the pedophile.

He had no way of knowing Zimmerman was pissed at Shellie and was going to bag him a black boy that night.
