George Zimmerman violated all the basic rules of neighborhood watch volunteering. The most egregious rule he violated is the carrying of a concealed weapon. Neighborhood watch volunteers are repeatedly told that they are not the police and have no authority to act as “sworn personnel.”
Why, then, carry and conceal a weapon while you are volunteering on neighborhood watch?
Another rule violation: Getting involved with a crime, making an arrest, or injecting yourself in the situation. This is according to the National Neighborhood Watch Institute (NNWI).
The NNWI Participants Handbook states,“Always remember that your responsibility is to report crime. Do not take any risks to prevent a crime or try to make an arrest. The responsibility for apprehending criminals belongs to the police/sheriff.”
Neighborhood Watch participants act as additional “eyes and ears” for law enforcement. They do not take the law into their own hands.
On the 9-1-1 call with police, Zimmerman told the 9-1-1 dispatcher that he was following Martin, and the dispatcher told him “you don’t need to do that.” Zimmerman was told to back off and stop tracking Treyvon Martin.

I hope this guy dies!
It is a faint hope.

EVERYONE dies, you will too, you complete Fool.

Why don't you hope for something with substance, something that will make the world a better place, something that we all can be proud of?

Why, of course, you should hope for your own death!

Make us proud!

Sorry to disappoint your rabid ass but nothing good is going to come out of this thing, short of a civil war.

Your death would certainly make this world a better place.

My death would only accelerate the worlds demise.

Either way,...YOU LOSE!

Now GFY!

In Trayvon's case, the tail was Zimmerman. It could have been worse for him.

Just two points, Un.

1-I never sided with Martin. I did say no one will ever know who was at fault. Of the two people who witnessed the event, one can't be objective, and the other is dead.

2- Nothing was "proven" by the defense. The prosecution simply did not have enough evidence.

By the way, what is "slave blood"? Could it save someone's life with a transfusion?

You are too stupid to breathe, Zimmerman was on trial, not Martin. His peers would include someone similar to you.

1.I did not write that the "Defense" proved it, in fact the State did it for them. The tell all then not tell so much juror said on a CNN interview just that. As you don't know, comrade pensioner, the jury is in fact the ONLY trier of the facts, ergo if they say it is so, thenit is legally PROVEN so.(She said the thug sucker punched, took down, pummeled Zim as he cried for help and got at best a,"hey, stop it!" but no real help so after 40 seconds of this he did what most would do if they could and stop the brutal attack with whatever was at hand, in this case a 9mm)

2. Slave blood as you know is the 'down for the struggle blood' as the racist Jesse J. said and BTW,your messiah has none of it. 3. Hyphenated-Amerikans indeed have blood compatible with creepy ass crackas.

Why do you think he bounced back and forth?
Trayvon was walking. Zimmerman could have stayed in his vehicle and avoided his encounter with Trayvon. Of course, he didn't want to avoid him. He wanted to make sure the "coon" didn't follow the usual, "they always get away with it". He chased him down, didn't identify himself, accosted him and when Trayvon subdued him and allowed him to get up, he shot him point blank. It's called murder.
Clearly, you want to incite a racist confrontation with your incessant rants and lies. Zimmerman never called him a coon and the media later apologized for their intentional deceit. Zimmerman is part black so is it possible to be racist against your own race? Zimmerman had been assisting folks in the neighborhood for some time and he was never involved with any violent criminals who attacked him out of the darkness before. He was a little naive and foolish for walking in his neighborhood AFTER seeing someone suspicious. He did the right thing and called police. He stopped following when it was suggested that he do. The thug vanished into the darkness....kind of hard to chase someone down who disappeared. It's dark and Z is going to meet the police. He's walking in his own gated neighborhood in the early evening. The only way he would come upon Martin would be if Martin wanted to confront him. This explains how he ended up on top of Zimmerman beating his head to the ground. This is why Zimmerman was screaming for help because he knew the police were on their way. At some point he realized help was not going to come in time so he shot him in self defense. The facts are clear. You racists are too stupid to pick a case that was so obviously self defense and then pull out the race card as an attempt to dispute the obvious. The only racial hatred that was involved was when the thug and his fat racist girl friend profiled a creepy white cracker and then thought it would be entertaining to kill him. Things didn't work out well for the thug. The lying fat girl friend is the poster pig for public education.

Yeah!! You got the facts straight on that. Did you hear about the World Trade Center? That was an inside job by Dick Cheney. And the moon landing? Done on a movie lot in California. Don't tell anyone, but I hear FEMA has these camps that they are sending undesirables to. Shhhhhh.....

He should have never left the f___ing car! It's his fault Trayvon is dead! He pursued an individual that he was told not to apprehend by an official 911 dispatch officer!
:Reenactment: He walked up on an unsuspecting Martin that probably spun around and whipped Zimmerman's ass and that is when Zimmerman unsheathed the weapon and fired shot.:Reenactment over:
The point is that a young thug lost his life and Zimmerman is accountable for that.
