The teenager outweighed Zimmermn by 40 pounds, and was hopped up on pot. There are witnesses as to what Zimmerman had to do. They will get him acquited. Then he can offer Trayvons greedy parents a couple bucks, and they will forget all about him.
They are going to get a alot more than a couple of bucks. This will be better than the lottery for them.

Gosh, I'm not the one carrying a torch for a pedophile hoping he could get off just because he is mostly white.

Racist bigots are less than a dime a dozen- the value of a coupon, is 1/20 of a cent, as I recall.

Trayvon was not a child. He was old enough, and big enough to have a job. He outweighed Zimmerman by 40 pounds
HAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA!

You are a LYING C*t74.

But we knew that already.

PS: the pedophile was weighed by the jailers and is a matter of public record: 200 pounds, i.e., short and fat, like you, though he isn't quite as heavy.

The boy he killed- 158 pounds- when his body was weighed at the morgue.

<quoted text>If he ran from Z then he would have been home eating a peanut butter sandwich with the kid he was babysitting. Martin ran to get out of z's sight, no doubt. I wonder if it had more to do with not wanting to be spotted doing something illegal. Anyone who staggers into a building with their hoody wrapped tightly around their face is hiding something. Who wears a hoody over their face INSIDE a building? A robber or drug dealer, perhaps?
Naw, Martin hung around his place waiting to ambush Z. It was dark and he was in his natural habitat. The kid knew he could easily 'take' an overweight and out of shape man in his 30's but he didn't think he would have had a gun. If the kid was as innocent as you think, he would have been home. Why not? The reasons are obvious.
You know anything about the kid that was at home during the shooting? Don't you think he heard the ruckus and saw all the cops just outside the door? Wouldn't the kid call his mom and tell her about what was going on? I still have to wonder if this kid saw the whole thing. Don't you think it's odd daddy dearest had no idea what happened when he stumbled home later that night? Why would dear old dad allow his son who was expelled from school go out at all? Wouldn't you think he would become alarmed if he didn't return that night?
We now know the girlfriend lied which was obvious to most before her admission. It's a shame the taxpayers have to throw out so much money to appease a bunch of racists.
Now it seems the Martins are going to get a lot of money from a civil suit. Expected.....blame someone else for not supervising your own kid and then get as much money as you can. It's better than a lottery.
And if Zimmerman never gave chase, the confrontation would never have happened.

You people love to interpret that gray area after Martin ran and when the first witness made a positive identification of Zimmerman standing over Martin.

I see...

You are using the "tradition" definition of the word "chase".

That the pedophile was behind Martin and got out of the truck and followed at a right rate of speed... since Martin was running away.

I guess that is why the pedophile's lawyer isn't going to be able to use the "stand" defense since (traditional definition) standing means not moving your feet.

His lawyer is also in a bit of a pickle since the prosecutor is going to portray the pedophile as a "liar"- in the traditional sense of the word, i.e., when he (the pedophile) opens his mouth, something other than the truth comes out.

The parents are greedy people who didn't want the inconvience of a drugged up son, and couldn't control Trayvon. The mother of the year sent him to Daddy who was busy chasing women, and didn't know his son was dead until the next day.They will be lucky if Zimmerman doesn't sue them for letting their drug crazed son out without a keeper. He didn't run from Zimmerman, he attacked the man from behind.Those druggies can arm themselves and run the streets in Illinois, Pennsylvania, N Y etc, but Florida has conceal carry, and a sane person would know enough to ask if their victim was armed.

One thing's for sure... something's afoot. The easiest way out for O'Mara would have been the syg hearing.

... but he ducked it.

And while he claims to be "getting prepared" for the trial, he seems to be preoccupied with other issues.

From what I see, he's not as confident as the Zimmerman supporters here.

You haven't explained how Martin outweighed the pedophile when records show Martin weighed 158 pounds and your chubby pedophile weighed 200 pounds.

Yes, one thing we can count on: you lie when your lips move.

Explain how Martin (158 pounds) outweighs (you say) the pedophile (weight=200 pounds).

You say by 40 pounds.

That would make Martin 240 pounds.

Heres the math= 200+40= 240 pounds.

I am sure hes trying to get the best possible deal for the pedophile, knowing that the pedophiles ugly fat lying wife is a chip the prosecutor is going to play.

I (remind you) already got ten years pick, I think my number is looking pretty good.

How can you jump to such a ridiculous conclusion? Martin vanished in the dark and Z even said it on a recorded call. You can't chase something that has disappeared. You failed to mention the witnesses that heard screaming and saw Martin on top of Z beating him. I'm not sure how you can conclude that Martin was an innocent when it is very obvious he ambushed and beat Z right in front of his house and I suspect in front of the kid he was supposed to be watching.

It certainly seems odd the press has said little about the kid who was at home when the shooting took place right outside his door. It is very odd, daddy dearest wouldn't have been called home because the kid saw the whole bloody thing. Very suspicious.

Zimmerman was in his vehicle when Martin ran. Zimmerman then left his vehicle with a loaded weapon to give chase. It's on the call.

As for your scenario of the fight, that remains to be seen.

Funny...

Everyone in America could hear your fat pedophile huffing and puffing as he ran though the side yards, cutting across the lawns, knowing he was going to cut this boy off on the sidewalk.

The sidewalk that this boy had a perfect right to be on, the sidewalk in front of his house.

Funny how the pedophile found himself blocks away from the truck that he wasn't chasing Martin with.

Actually, it's NOT on the call. You're fabricating. He was walking while on the phone with police dispatcher and stopped after the operator told him that he didn't need to be doing that. We could hear that he stopped just as we could hear that he was never running, just walking. So, there was no chase. We also heard while he was on the call that Martin disappeared into the darkness. End of your so called 'chase'. Martin had plenty of time to go home, but he didn't. He chose to jump out of the darkness and attack Zimmerman.

Since you agree Z was out of shape, then perhaps you can understand why he was no match for the 17 year old football player thug. Z was not running because his speech would have sounded like he was running and it didn't. He was walking and there is no question about it. Additionally, Z stopped and finished his conversation on the phone. Martin had plenty of time to go home run or walk. Z had no idea where Martin went. It was dark so it was impossible to chase him. After Z hung up, he was on his to meet the police by the back gate which is why he was not by his truck. Zimmerman had the same right to walk on the sidewalk in his OWN neighborhood. The kid had no right to jump him and beat his head on the sidewalk.

You are a liar.

The pedophile was running.

Everyone in this thread heard him huffing and puffing.

So have you.

So: you are a liar.

He wasn't under any obligation to run.

He had every right to be exactly where he was at.

He was on the phone, having a conversation with his girlfriend.

As far as he was concerned, he thought he had lost the creep who was following him.

The boy had every right to be right where he was at.

The kid had every right in the world to be in fear of his life when the PEDOPHILE jumped him on the SIDEWALK, cutting off his path to his home.

The PEDOPHILE never got over flunking out of cop school and everyone here knows EXACTLY what was going through his cop wannabe head.
