please explain this ONE thing to me, ok?
for 2-4 mins(the Def claimed 4 and the State said 2 in its final closing), TM was FREE AND CLEAR AND SAFE from GZ... hidden by the dark somewhere along the dog path(that led to his 'home').
WHY did he even MEET GZ?
remember DeeDee's testimony? she advised him to 1) RUN and 2) go Home!
remember Tracy's testimony: his 'scared little boy' NEVER called Daddy(or anyone!) for HELP.
WHY did he even step out of the dark and hiding and MEET GZ?
do NOT fantasize about GZ finding TM... the EVIDENCE does not support that. all of the evidence supports GZ's version that TM 'materialized' from out of the night and APPROACHED him. even DeeDee said TM SPOKE first... to GZ?
WHY?
and remember this: GZ was WITHDRAWING from the 'field'. in essence, GZ had turned tail and was going 'home' to the ssafety of his vehicle to await the police THAT HE KNEW WERE IN-ROUTE!
TM did not KNOW any such thing(unless he was hiding close enough to OVERHEAR GZ's phone conversation?).
TM, TOO, clould have been on HIS phone with 911(we KNOW it worked and had the abilitity to call OUT) and either continued hiding or GOING HOME...unseen along the too dark dog path, moving from bush to bush, etc...
INSTEAD, he continued to talk to DeeDee, his AUDIENCE?
remember, before the State OBJECTED AND THE JUDGE disallowed it, DeeDee was about to say how she know that TM would tell her if he was going to go fight someone... remember that little bit of HONESTY?
the logical conclusion is that TM had 1) engaged in pre-meditated violent behaviour before and 2) was used to telling folks, like DeeDee, about it in advance.
WHY did TM even MEET GZ?
answer that one question, please....
well, do you feel guilty about dodging this one little, bitty question, Resuppository?:)

"George Zimmerman got away with murder," she said. "But you can't get away from God. And at the end of the day, he's going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with.[But] the law couldn't prove it."

Why can't you accept her comments - after all she fulfilled her civic duty and followed the law but still believes "George Zimmerman got away with murder"?

Her comment was her feelings and not the law.

If one is to say a person got away with murder, then murder has to be defined and then shown how Zimmerman fit into that definition. Her opinion of murder might be blowing somebody away that entered your home even though they were unarmed. Maybe she believes that a police officer murdered a person simply because the suspect he shot was unarmed, but he made a sudden move after being told to freeze or perhaps he had something in his hand that the officer perceived as a weapon.

Of course these situations are not murder, but one might opine that it is in their view.

We have the legal definition of murder, and Zimmerman didn't fit that definition. CCW holders have laws they have to abide to, and Zimmerman was within his rights as a CCW holder to use his weapon for self-defense.

Ugly amerikkkkkans the whole lot of you,
Sad
But not ashamed enough to actually leave your lilly white neighborhood and buy or rent a home in a very integrated neighborhood.

And don't tell me you don't live in an all white neighborhood. I've spoken to dozens of people just like you. Preach this "love thy neighbor" stuff and then eventually they slip and tell us where they live which is more than 20 miles from the nearest black guy.

I have to laugh because one of my tenants met this girl online, and she came here to stay with him for over two months. She's from Australia and very liberal.

She was shocked to find out that we take our firearms with us when we go out. They're not allowed to have guns where she's from. She even took a picture of my CCW license to show the people back home.

Of course she educated herself on race relations in the US. My tenant told her we live in a very integrated community and she was excited about experiencing it. When she left, she didn't have much of a liberal attitude anymore when it came to race relations.

It's something you have to experience, not read it in a book or learn it in a college somewhere. And if you should ever become so unfortunate to do so, then you will probably understand what Zimmerman did and why.

Noooo...because there is no such thing. The preposterous myth of "liberal media" has been around forever, phony as it is. But liberal talk shows? Are you kidding? Talk shows are ENTIRELY from the extremist right. Unless you're talking about them going to "Democracy Now!" where are these supposed "liberal talk shows"?
Serius satellit radio.

Liberal talk shows are all failures which is why there are so few. Liberals aren't listening to politics. They are listening to rap or watching reality shows. That's why they're liberals--they don't understand what's happening to our country and really don't care.

Liberals are at work.

Cuntservatives are home collecting unemployment or on welfare or working menial under the table jobs such as snaking toilets in section eight housing that allows them to listen to daytime radio when others are actually working.

<quoted text>Strange thing, these people only want to hear what they want to hear. He will be tried buy the Feds where the penalties are stiffer. If he beats it then he got away. Casey Anthony got away with murdering her little girl and they did not call that the right verdict.
Most experts agree that if this case stood no chance in a murder trial, it definitely stands no chance in a federal trial.

The FBI (before the murder trial) was sent to Florida and determined there was no racial element to this shooting. Much like trying to prove murder, the feds would have to prove race was a motivation and provide such proof.

Of course DumBama and racist Holder are quite aware of this. But what they do is give the wishful thinkers something to chat about. There will be no federal trial of George Zimmerman.

<quoted text>Are you saying that blacks should take their fire arms into KKK neighborhoods and call 911, and say this person looks like he has lynched black people, I am going to follow him.
The point is, fool, Zimmerman did not live in that neighborhood and he was told not to patrol it. Trayvon was going to the house he was staying in, where his family lived.
I live in a million dollar neighborhood, and I have a black family on one side, white older couple on the other, Asians down the street, Persians, Armenians, Russians, etc. and all in my small neighborhood. We have no crime. People walk their dogs and people see people. We also leave our guns in the house.
It is clear that you are the problem and you live in a gutter trailer trash neighborhood. You probably rob people when they are not at home. I think you are an uneducated thug, no college degree and no future. But all in all, your mom loves you, right?
Of course you live in a million dollar neighborhood. And I'm a retired astronaut.

Do tell: how does a person living in a million dollar neighborhood not know what he's commenting on? The case was all over the news..... all on Google..... all on FactCheck.org . Yet you know little about it. So allow me to educate you:

Zimmerman DID live in that neighborhood. Martin did not.

Nobody EVER told Zimmerman not to patrol that complex and in fact, was the leader of the neighborhood watch program.

Thug did not have family in the resort. He was staying at his fathers fiancees apartment because the thug was suspended from school.

Had you graduated high school and perhaps advanced to a community college somewhere, you might be intelligent enough to look up the facts before you post. But because you dropped out of your pathetic public school and never learned to research the subject you wish to comment on, you look like an utter fool.

Lesson number one: don't bring a knife to a gunfight. Just ask Trayvon Martin.

How many blacks did whites kill during slavery, compared to blacks killing whites. How many blacks did whites kill in Jim Crowe south, compared to blacks killing whites. Lynchings, murders of blacks in South Africa. In fact, the truth is there is a higher white on black crime rate and also a higher white on white crime rate.
How many whites did whites murder in WW1 and WW11, for theft and violence? How many Japanese were murdered? How many Jews and Blacks were murdered in Germany?
FBI hate crimes report, 2012, whites killing blacks are still the no. 1 hate crime in America.
Remember, it took the FBI to start convicting whites for killing blacks, for years and was even the case in the Rodney King beating. Look at this way, it was not a crime in Germany for Germans to gas and kill blacks and Jews. No arrests made. I am just wondering why they are trying to prosecute the boy he did the Boston marathon? Is that a crime, while dropping two A-bombs on babies, children, women and civilians is justified use of force. Despite the fact that it violated the Geneva Convention. How about killing thousands of citizens and people in Iraq, with no declaration of war and the same in Afghanistan? That is simply white militarized gang violence.
The fact is, percentages do not count,whites commit more murders, have more inmates in prison, more rapes, more drug crimes, and more gang violence. In other words if there were one guy from Kurdistan and he were in prison that would be 100% of the Kurdistan people and it would be irrelevant to the number of white criminals.
Statistics are made by your racist to justify your racism. Okay?
Your turn.
What a maniacal rant.

The black population in the US is roughly 13%. They far exceed that percentage in murders, prisoners in the US, and violent crime.

Using past wars (which you call murder) is irrelevant to the current climate of race crimes today. The US has not declared war on any country since WWII. And the Geneva Convention only protects uniformed armed solders--not cave men terrorists with no backing from any country.

Homicides by race: http://www.project.org/images/graphs/Homicide...

Race of victims and death row inmates: http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/race-death-ro...

FBI statistics on race:

Of the offenders for whom race was known, 52.4 percent were black, 45.2 percent were white, and 2.4 percent were of other races. The race was unknown for 4,077 offenders.(Based on Expanded Homicide Data Table 3.)

Again, keep in mind that the black population of our country is only 13%.
