<quoted text> I'm not convinced Zimmerman would have been able to follow Martin because he stopped following him during the conversation with the 911 operator. Thugvon was long gone and Zimmerman would have no idea where he was. I suspect Zimmerman was walking towards the gates where the police would enter and he was attacked by Martin. Or maybe he was looking around the neighborhood to see where he was and direct police to his whereabouts. Considering Martin was only within a few feet of his house suggests Martin was looking for trouble. If he were in the slightest concerned about Zimmerman he would have been in his house because we know Zimmerman was standing still while on the phone. During this time, Martin would have had plenty of time to go the to 'safety' of his home.

Why have we heard nothing about the minor who was left at home while Martin went to the store? Surely he heard the ruckus outside his door. Surely he recognized Martin's voice arguing with Zimmerman. And---he most definitely heard the shot. Would he not call his parents when he saw the cops or heard gunfire? I'll bet he saw the whole thing. If he didn't, he would see the lights, hear the voices afterwards. Wouldn't he want to see who was shot outside his door? I think he knew. His dear old daddy knew too, I'm sure. We will never find out because the media will bury it. Kind of like the way the media dropped that kneegrow woman who falsely accused rich young white men of rape.There was no outrage from the media that the woman made the story up and destroyed these young men's reputation. The media also destroyed these young men and even the school's reputation in the interest of promoting fake racism. This case is more of the same.
Brilliant!

Martins little brother was waiting for him to return with the Skittles and the Iced Tea to be mixed with the cough syrup in the medicine cabinet so they could whip up a batch of the drug concoction known as "Purple." He freaked when Martin ended up dead and had no other choice but to keep his eyes, his ears, and his mouth shut.

It's amazing how you criminals hate the police and always go ballistic whenever you are confronted with any kind of authority. Your childish antisocial behavior might win you points in Canada, but it'll get your stupid ass wasted down here.
So as your con-man countryman Monty Hall used to say,....."Come on down!"
You're in for a treat!
oh for fcuk sakes.... GI JANE WAS NOT ANY KIND OF FCUKING AUTHORITY. Give it a rest already... cuz if that's all ya got, YA GOT NOTHING. Hell, even the National Neighbourhood Watch Association said THEY HAD NO DOCUMENTED KNOWLEDGE OF HIM. NONE NADA ZILTCH. So.. exactly who the fcuk was this Thug Zimmerman?? I'll tell you who he was... he was a violent man with a history of assaulting Law Enforcement Officers, Bar patrons, Women, Drug use and rehab, rape, pedophilia, and perjury, Trayvon had the gross misfortune of running into this creep and paid for it with his life. Now it's time to convict GI Jane, and lock him up for 25 to life.

Ok... gotta ask this question. Show me in the police reports, the defense's notes, the prosecutor's notes, the mainstream media (not some snot nosed inbred bigot's blog)... anything, anywhere that will validate this wild and stupid claim of yours. This is nothing but yet another blatant attack lie by the backwoods snot nosed inbred bigot brigade. What's with you racists and lying?? That's ALL you ever seem to do.

Wait until trial numbnut, you just might get an education, in the meantime, GFY! You're ignorant of what every enword knows.

"Published on Jul 4, 2012"

"Looks like George Zimmerman wasn't the only person who was scared around Trayvon [AKA "no_limit_n...."]. Trayvon wasn't buying tea with his Skittles as reported by the media. Rather, he was buying a drink called Arizona Watermelon."

"Skittles and Arizona Watermelon are two ingredients commonly used to make a popular street drug called "lean" or "purple drank."

"Trayvon's Facebook posts indicate he was actively seeking other ingredients to make a batch of lean, namely Promethazine with Codeine VC, Sizzurp being the active ingredient."

Pure speculation?....No facts or corroborating evidence?....Sounds like what you numbnuts been spouting off about Zimmerman.lol. Here's some mainstream links you numbnuts always like to use, but don't bother to check em out, just make like an ostrich and stick your head up your ass. But of course the Mainstream Media isn't going to mention Trayvon Martin and Purple drank in the same sentence, don't you know that, numbnut?

But it is against the law to attack someone for asking you a question........
I have had two occasions where black thugs thought they could do just what you said and both times they died.....
No law against protecting yourself after you've told the nosey questioner to back off... and GI Jane didn't. I would call that harassment and have every right to defend myself against it. Period. I severely doubt that Trayvon respond to Thug Zimmerman's question with an all out punch. Trayvon probably told him to get lost (quite within his rights) but Zimmerman wouldn't leave it alone (like he was told to). Just because GI Janie doesn't like the answer he got doesn't mean he's immune to self defence. Like I said... given the same situation, if GI Janie didn't back off when I told him to, he'd have my boot right up his azz, followed by a civil suit.

So the only thing you got is a tall black kid wearing a hoodie. Pretty common place, don't you think??? No where in ANY report does it say the Trayvon was acting strangely or looking in cars. He was walking down the street with a fricken bag of skittles and a can of Ice Tea.

No law against a citizen asking anyone a question or following a suspect.....
But morons that think they can attack someone that asked them a question may end up dead.....
ummm.. ya... there is..... it's harassment. There was NO CRIME IN PROGRESS at the time so.... if you've been told to back off... and you persist... it's harassment. Plain and simple. YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO HARASS ANYONE. If you don't like the answer you got... let the law handle it.... it's THEIR job.

Geez, you have a real problem. The thug was a guest in a gated neighborhood. I hardly think it's harassment for anyone to ask what a stranger is doing inside a gated neighborhood. It happens all the time. If we see someone walking around that we don't recognize, we call security. If someone attacked security for asking what they were doing in the neighborhood, they would be disabled quickly as these guys are well trained. If the attacker was persistant and ended up getting killed, it would not be the fault of patrol. There was a case of injury when a criminal tried to steal a phone out of a car. Bike patrol caught the guy but the thug tried to kill patrol and ended up getting seriously injured. Thug tried to sue but ended up in jail doing even more time.

Defend yourself against what? Polite words? Are you kidding? If you attack someone for asking a question, you would deserve to be shot on the spot.

You have an attitude and seem a little mentally unstable to think you should have a right to attack someone just because they ask what you are doing. If Martin were that uncomfortable with Zimmerman, he had ample time to simply go home...but he didn't. The thug ambushed Zimmerman and his preteen friend inside the house was most likely watching the whole thing.
