That's whats gunna get zimmerman life?

LOL, I wouldn't doubt if he left his cell on, recording the whole incident. I wouldn't put it past ANY teenager to do that. HAA listen while I kick this dudes ass, LOL maybe even live streamed it to post it on youtube so his posse be seein him gettin down...

That would make a big boom wouldn't it, either way.
A witness did see Martin beating him and the autopsy reveals no evidence that Martin had injuries other than bruised knuckles and a gunshot wound. Zimmerman's injuries was a broken nose and lacerations to the face and back of the head. Pretty good evidence for self defense.

Please show us this evidence..........ROTFLMAO
The state's attorney has already shown a reasonably intelligent and prudent person this evidence at the probable cause hearing. The judge agreed that there was enough evidence pointing to Zimmerman's guilt to have him stand trial for murder.

The difference is, you were open minded. You wanted to learn and grow as a person. These bigots are stuck in their hate, they thrive on it. They love to hate.
I too have many relatives who are bigots. However, they never stoop to the level of these haters on here.
I traveled extensively at a young age. I learned that their are diversities in people everywhere. You can't cookie cut people, especially based on their color. That's just plain stupid.
I know these people won't change. Many of them are elderly and they have taught their children to hate in the same way they were taught.
I don't think they are representative of our society anymore though. They are just old fogies stuck in the past and unhappy with their own lives.
Kind of makes me feel sorry for them. Nobody can truly be happy with all that hate in their heart. Not sorry enough for them to excuse their behavior, but their lives must be misreble.

That's not how it works. The prosecutor can spin whatever story they want to a Judge and get a warrant. Also a Judge only had to feel that there is enough evidence for an arrest warrant not that there is guilt. Duh. In this case if you saw the hearing you would see that when the prosecutor obtained the warrant they did not mention to the Judge that a witness saw Martin on top of Zimmerman and that Zimmerman's nose was broken and he had lacerations to the back of his head. It's that easy for an officer or prosecutor to get a warrant. You really should get more informed about the case because it just make you look ignorant when you comment.

SANFORD --
Shellie Zimmerman, the wife of George Zimmerman, will remain on trial for perjury in a case that's tied to her husband.
George Zimmerman is facing second-degree murder charges in the death of Trayvon Martin last February. Zimmerman says he shot Martin in self-defense.
Shellie Zimmerman is accused of lying on the stand during a bond hearing for George Zimmerman about her and her husband's finances.
Shellie Zimmerman's attorney argued that the special prosecutor in her husband's case, state attorney Angela Corey, did not have jurisdiction to prosecute Shellie's case because the prosecutor was elected in Jacksonville.
“What we’re worried about is that the people of Seminole County, and their elected officials, aren’t able to decide what’s happening in this case, or in any case," said Kelly Sims, Shellie's attorney. "The governor took an extraordinary remedy, which was requested, for any matters related to the death of Mr. Martin, by the then state attorney.”
But the judge didn’t buy that argument, and denied Shellie Zimmerman’s motion to dismiss her perjury charge.
Meanwhile, George Zimmerman's attorneys will be back in court on Friday, to set a date for the stand your ground hearing.
And they are still collecting money via, "The real George Zimmerman.com . But I am sure they still expect taxpayers to pay for Zims' defense, claiming Indigence. Hope Judge is watching the accounts this time, before Shellie hides the money, again.

Really
Then why do so many claim Zim is guilty with ZERO evidence he broke any law???
Besides the fact that most of you are racist??
I don't consider myself a racist. I am a white woman, fairly well educated, and I certainly understand the law.
People have the perception that Zim is guilty, because of what they know, and what they do know tells them he is guilty of more than a Self Defense shooting.
Ordinary Americans can believe whatever they like. Presumption of Innocent Until Proven Guilty is a Term of Justice for the Courts to believe. The courts must Presume that all who come before it for justice are equal in the eyes of the law. However one cannot come before the court and expect Justice if he/she has "Unclean Hands."
Example: A Prostitute cannot expect relief if a Customer refuses to pay her for an act that is Illegal.
A Defendant who lies to the Court may have a Jury Instruction that says "If you believe someone in this case LIED to you about one thing, you may DISREGARD any or ALL of that Witness' Testimony.
In, Conclusion, Zimmie is in deep shit.

How does that proove me wrong? Owning multiple homes doesn't say jack squat about the kind of person you are (disgusting).
No wonder you're so confused about the Zimmerman murder case, look at what you think 'proof' is.

That's what is pissing them off. They think anyone should be allowed to murder any black person with impunity.
Isn't it interesting that all of the criminal acts Zimmerthugman committed should be overlooked and the non criminal should be vilified and condemned because he was a black child.
Any judgments made based on skin color are idiotic judgments.
Wrong again.........

Dr Steve Perry is a friend of mine and he is as black as they come..........Never think about harming him.....

White hello, brown and black thugs that think I should live in fear of them have another thing coming..........
