Let's make sure before we judge this fat short flunky pedophile we get the entire picture and remember his bail hearing when he conspired with his wife to lie about his assets before the court that will try him shortly.

That is the bottom line to you and it was the bottom line for the pedophile that shot this unarmed teenager.

<quoted text>"Texas Man Found Guilty for Killing Neighbor in Dispute

By ANTHONY CASTELLANO
June 14, 2012

A jury has convicted a Texas man for murdering his neighbor during a confrontation over loud music two years ago, rejecting a claim that he was within his rights to fatally shoot the man under Texas' version of a "stand-your-ground" law.

Raul Rodriguez, 47, faces up to life in prison for the killing of Kelly Danaher, 36. Sentencing is scheduled to begin today.

"I'm just glad he can't hurt anybody else," Danaher's wife, Mindy, said. "I love my husband, and I miss him so much ... and he helped all of us get through this today."

It took the jury less than six hours Wednesday to decide between self-defense and murder. Jurors, apparently agreeing with prosecutors that Rodriguez, a retired Houston-area firefighter, was a trigger-happy neighborhood bully.

"He felt like he had ultimate control, control to determine who lives and who dies," Donna Logan, Harris County Assistant District Attorney, said.

Rodriguez recorded the argument in May of 2010 when he killed Danaher, an elementary school teacher, and wounded two other people. The 22-minute homemade video was the key to the trial as Rodriguez's lawyers argued it was self-defense under Texas' version of the so-called stand-your-ground law, which is also at the center of the Trayvon Martin case in Florida.

It was after midnight when Rodriguez, complaining to police via telephone that the music was too loud, walked up to Danaher's driveway with a flashlight and gun.

In the video, Rodriguez can be heard talking to a 911 operator, saying, "I'm running the video camera right now and I'm talking to you and I mean, I'm scared to death here."

In the unfolding confrontation between Rodriguez and several unidentified men, one yells, "Tell you what, pal, you just pulled a gun on the wrong [expletive], OK?"

When one of the party-goers saw Rodriguez's gun, he suggested he is getting his own. "When I go in that house and come back," he warned, "don't think I won't be equal to you, baby."

"It's about to get out of hand sir, please help me. Please help me, my life is in danger now ...," Rodriguez told police over the phone. "Now, I'm standing my ground here. Now, these people are going to try and kill me."

Seconds later, a fight about loud music ends with the crack of gunfire...."
Yes shooting someone in the back is not self defense

The Martin family attorney Crump planted a phony witness which will be exposed at trial. It will be interesting to see how they react as their house of cards begins to collapse all around them.

George Zimmerman is a hero and an American icon.

Merry Christmas George.

Yes indeed, they have never stopped crying and they will continue to do so even when they are finally exposed once and for all for their malicious attempt to impede justice and to destroy George Zimmerman.

George Zimmerman has more supporters out there than Martin ever had. Most people are honest, thank God.

Merry Christmas George, England loves you.

Zimmerman is a pedophile and a bigot and likes to hit women and the only people who would put him up on a pedestal are like-minded bigots.

Hope you're still giving Zimmerman money.

He's running out... if he hasn't already.

Sure, there will be dopes that don't understand the law or why it is written. We had a few cases like that here in Ohio, and the shooters are rightfully in jail. But the Zimmerman case is not one of those cases.

You cannot change your stance from the aggressor to being defensive simply because you're losing a fight you initiated.
Being jumped while walking through a backyard is not being an aggressor. Jumping somebody is not a defensive move.

As of right now, the Zimmerman case is.

I find it curious his attorney hasn't gone for the speedy trial and instead, prefers to ask for continuances. I find it more curious they haven't demanded the syg hearing.

I'm most curious about the forensics.

You're making an assumption.

And we know for a fact Zimmerman lies.

Zimmerman is a hero, and an icon. Only a pedophile and a bigot such as yourself would put forth such an outrageous accusation. The world is full of abominations like you. You guys always piss and moan when one of your own bites the bullet.

Merry Christmas.

George Zimmerman has plenty of supporters, and he will have plenty of opportunities once Martin and his conspirators are uncovered. He doesn't need money. He has plenty of support which you are naturally not happy to hear.

Maybe you could send a nice contribution to the authorities, they're the ones who need more money.

Merry Christmas.

It doesn't surprise me given the media attention. It will be difficult if not impossible to find jurors not familiar with this case, so the more it settles down, the less likely it is that Zimmerman will be prejudged. Plus in the likely event he's found not guilty, we don't need another Rodney King on our hands since the media refuses to report on this case as two minorities. They made it out to be a white vs black thing.

Yes I am making an assumption. That's all we can make at this time unless a surprise witness comes forward in the trial; somebody who witnessed the actual attack. But all medical evidence so far points to Zimmerman's side of the story. Most people who are attacked at least have some abrasion on their body. Martin had none except his knuckles.

It is possible but that would be a tragedy

Not one moron here can say why he did not have the right to shoot a punk that attacked Zim
