George freaked out and shot him in cold blood. The gray area is was it really in self defense for his life, the man didn't even go to the hospital that night. All the pieces to the puzzle don't fit together perfectly, but the one thing is for certain he pursued a child down in his vehicle with a gun with only bad intentions.

Witness #8 is a joke. George Zimmerman is a hero.

How can the life of such a man be in the palm of some fools hand?

The ATTACK of George Zimmerman was a hate crime. That has been substantiated by the remarks of that thing they call his gf. It said Martin referred to Zimmerman as a Creepy Ass Kracker. That is clearly a racial insult and defines Martins state of mind before the attack. Instead of returning to confront Zimmerman with "Hello whats up?" it was Hey MF tonight youre gonna die!" Its clear as glass Martin beat Zimmerman and received his just reward. There was a killing but certainly NO murder!
Tricksi and Subrina should gather up the buckets and move on. After all they've already collected much more than they invested raising the little scumbag. Their time could be better spent priming the other gorilla for a confrontation like this. With the advice from Jesse (I want MOney) Jackson and Al(paunchgut)Sharptooth the next circus could be a sellout! Good luck! Hahaha

How is that relevant? You don't have to be facing death in order to legally use your firearm to protect yourself. And when you are pinned down and getting the snot beat out of you, how do you evaluate whether or not you are going to die?
Hey those kinda scumbags want a man to wait intil hes dead to defend himself hahaha. What bunch of dead losers they are hahaha.

The surviving for his life and him being afraid of dying has all been exaggerated. To even swallow that pill is difficult since he didn't go to the hospital that night. If you ask me what happened and again this is just my opinion, George was losing the fight freaked out and then shot him in cold blood.
Learn the meaning of..."Murder in Cold Blood"?......Should be easy, as you've already swallowed the, "Trayvon was an innocent child" pill.....

True. After all, what does Hate Crimes mean? Hate Crimes means more severe penalties to offenders of typical Democrat voters: women, minorities, gays..........
My favorite is...PROFILING....Just because one group committ's so many crimes, it is wrong to watch for them......they should get a "societal pass"....LOL....

So; what about the witness yesterday that said the person on top was wearing a red and black jacket ?
Could THIS Joe whatever his name is be a personal "Friend" of Zimmerman's and be telling a lie to help his friend ...
Three other witnesses have more or less all gave testimony that follows the prosecution case ... this guy comes along and suddenly we are to believe him .....
Also; don't we need to consider that the Homeowner's Association rules say NO weapons and NO confrontations .. and the Neighborhood Watch teaches in their handbook and in person , NO: Following , Confrontations , and NO WEAPONS ....
George Followed, Confronted, and had a loaded weapon .... He is at least the aggressor by following and confronting ... The MINIMUM he should get is Manslaughter and do 3-5 Years ....
so what, it does not look good for the state or Prosecution beside if the homeowners association has rules that say no weapons they better get themselves familiar with the SCOTUS case of Mcdonald v Chicago(2010) or they will be in Federal Court for restricting individuals 2nd amendment right just like City of Chicago for not allowing individuals to protects themselves from the criminals which we already know that Trayvon Martin had and all Zimmerman and the others in the Neighborhood watch group were doing is trying to take back streets from these criminals which we Trayvon Martin was an associate of according to his criminal record.

Trayvon would be alive today if he had been taught respect. He could have answered Zimmerman's questions, or just behaved in a respectful manner. But he was from a broken home with parents that didn't have time for him, so he took his anger out on the world. Mama, and Papa have made thousands of dollars from his death, now the trial will be over, and the money dries up. That is what they are really crying about.

No, George Zimmerman did not have to follow Trayvon Martin but since young Negro males are so criminal he felt he should do his duty as a good citizen and protect the community. White racism against the Negro is almost non existant yet the Negro can throw any insult against White America with impunity and it is not a hate crime. The Negro has always ben a stain of shame on the American nation and today the Negro is the shame of all humanity. The true face of the Negro and what he stands for is evident in this Trial of George Zimmerman. Go home Coons,,,Africa is waiting for you.
talk about Blacks, Chicago is a prime Example as of 6/28/2013 of the 190 Homicides so far in Chicago, 146 of them it was a black, 40 of them of them it was a hispanic and 4 of them of them it was a white as the website below proves and we already know that Trayvon Martin already had a Criminal Record.

They'll probably sign up on unemployment when the trial winds down. Hahaha Cant you just see the interview asking what line of work they are into? They reply, sending our kids back and forth between us until they find a white man that defends himself and kills them. Then we sue everybody in sight!

The fact that Zimmermen also was suppose to have training in Neighborhood watch, security guard training, and gun carry training also holds Zimmermen to a higher standard. Zimmermen was trying to act like a cop without any authority to do so.

Zimmermen never answered trayvons Q. Why are you following me? Instead he continued to close and confront Martin. All the ear witness spoke of a loud exchange of words just before the tussle broke out. Remember thataccording to Zimmermen Martin asked if he had a problem and Zimermen calmly replied no, then Martin suckered punched, knocked him to the ground, and started beating his head on the sidewalk.

Respect for his White masters? Zimmermen is the one who didn't respect Martins right to walk down a sidewalk without be bothered.

If Zimmerman is acquitted all of you who are fence walkers take stock if there is violence. Where the violence is. And the type of violence. If you live in a diverse area, pay attention. If people come together, then that is a magnificent result. But use this as a modern barometer to something worse, such as an economic collapse. remember, survival is the name of the game. Don't listen to those sell out traitor media people. Use the instincts that you learned in life but have had neutered from our elitist controlled nation. Be kind to those who are the same. Defend against attackers. And above everything else, if there are riots,.... remember. Hopefully there will be none.

That's enough bullsh*t.....You and i both know, since we have been talking about this situation OVER A YEAR......George Zimmerman's history was to call police and direct them...he never showed any inclination at confrontation, as neighborhood watch....Just because it isn't turning out as you wanted....stop your whining....

1st officer on the scene noticed Georges jeans were darker from on the backside from being wet which indicated to the officer that George was on his back.
the pedophile's jeans would not have been wet if he was sitting in the front seat of his car waiting for the cops like he was told.
