<quoted text>This not guilty verdict had nothing to do with stand your ground. Zimmerman declined to use stand your ground as his defense. His defense was self defense. The same law in all 50 states. He would have been found innocent under self defense in any state.
He was told to stop following Trayvon.

He chose to ignore that.

His choice, and his alone, caused an unnecessary and unwarranted death.

Did Zimmerman have any emblems or insignia on his person or truck that identified him as Security??? That should be required, IMO.
And, there has been no evidence presented that shows Zimmerman ever approached Martin---ONLY that the two were fighting. There is a possibility that Martin doubled back and attacked Zimmerman.
First of all zimmerman lived in the community. He was not a security guard but part of the neighborhood watch. Are you saying that if you saw something suspicious going on in your neighborhood you would ignore it. Zimmerman called 911. THE DISPATCHER asked him about the race of trayvon. Zimmerman did not say he is black he said I THINK HE IS BLACK. The dispatcher asked him where he was now.Zimmerman lost sight of him and was trying to locate him. trayvon assaulted zimmerman. I have never alleged anything else

And get away with it?
Stalking???? now zimmerman is a stalker.As soon as you harass the other person THEY CAN STAND THEIR GROUND. Did zimmerman harass trayvon? Did he knock him down? Did he attempt to detain him in any way. As soon as trayvons hand touched the tip of zimmermans nose trayvon committed assault.Zimmerman did not use SYG as his defense. Since he was on his back SYG no longer applied. It was now self defense.Try educating yopurself before you display to the public what a moron you are.You probably voted for socialism

trayvon could have CHOSEN to not attack zimmerman. he could have ignored him and continued to his father's house. he could have called 911 and waited for the police to come. if he was guilty of no crime, he had nothing to fear. zimmerman is guilty of being an overzealous neighborhood watch guy, but he broke no laws...

You guys have to keep on lying to maintain your phoney outrage.

People responding to you as if you speak truth is part of the problem.

Zimmerman was never told to stop following Trayvon. He was told "we don't need you to do that", which obviously to any intelligent person means the option is still his. Neighborhood Watches have every reason and right to find out what people are doing. You criminal Leftist types want us to turn everything over to the changing emotions of drugged thugs and burglars. Trayvon physically assaulting George is the only issue that caused his death.

I am sure Mr. Martin profiled his killer as a Hispanic jew when his creepy stalker was following him. Hilllarious.
But you are so sure that Zimmerman profiled Martin- hilarious!

He had the choice to watch from a distance, from his car, and wait for police.

He was advised to stop following. He chose to not only ignore that advice, but get out of his car, and escalate the situation.

He's a known cop wanna-be and a pussy with a gun.

And somehow, I can't see the same verdict coming out if their colors had been reversed.

Can you?

Honestly?

Real Justice was served by a jury, the type of (street) justice you want is the type that got trayvon killed.
He sprung from hiding and attacked and was killed while assaulting GZ. The jury saw the evidence and made their decision. Just because the outcome was not to your liking doesn't make it wrong!
That is the typical liberal attitude! Everyone must see it your way or they are wrong. The real world doesn't operate that way. Step out of the shadow of liberalism and think for yourself.
You don't like Guns so nobody should have guns
You don't like big cars so nobody should have one
You don't like big business so it should be destroyed.
You don't like wealthy people so you demand they should share it with you.
Get the picture! Probably not! Put down red solo cup and step away from the Kool-aid!
Did Trayvon have the right to stand his ground?

Or is that just for the guy with the gun.

He was not advised to stop following. He was indeed not following at the time of the Trayvon attack; he was outside his vehicle trying to identify a street name. Rachel Jeantel's testimony is what got Zimmerman easily free, as it was obvious that Trayvon was out of breath because he ran to a different place (see map) to confront George. Trayvon jumped out from behind a bush and confronted George. George asked him what he was doing. Trayvon punched him, broke his nose, got him on the ground and started crushing George's skull on the sidewalk. Trayvon could have stayed where he told Rachel he was, but lied. If he had stayed there, it was only a few steps to go inside his gangbanger, illegal weapons selling through his son father's girlfriend's house.

So what?

He was given sound advice, from a professional, in order to prevent just such a situation, and let actual LEO's resolve the situation, which would more than likely ended up with everybody going back home and enjoying their evening.

Zimmerman chose to ignore that advice.

The results of that choice speak for themselves.

Honestly?
A hooded culprit creeping in the shadows across private yards and off the sidewalk and streets does not look suspicious?
Then when confronted says nothing about his father's home in the area and gets testy is not susipicious?
The dispatcher asked Zimmerman what the creeper was doing thus causing him to persue. Duh!
The jury has spoken. Put your bigotted glasses away and see the truth for what it is.

If he had stood his ground, he would have been back at his gangbanger father's girlfriend's house with the drink and Skittles he used to concoct a poor man's PCP, free to viciously attack another bus driver, or steal some more jewelry with the new brothers he quickly formed and texted to find codeine instead of that weaker cough syrup for the Skittles.

Yup.

If the hispanic looked white enough and had a pretty white last name.(How many hispanic Zimmeremans ARE there?) White enough that people had to be TOLD that he was hispanic.

Now that you mention it, it does seem time to clean up the Bloods problem in Sanford once and for all. The only realistic answer to this increased viciousness and racism from Blacks is concentration camps. Otherwise, everyone will be a victim to their insanity.
