Sorry gramps, but I have to call you out on this one.
It has nothing to do with race on the Zimmerman side. It has to do with facts such as those presented to the jury. And the truth is there are no facts that Martin attacked Zimmerman. None. No witnesses to that account, no marks on his body during the autopsy, forensic evidence that was presented to the jury, multiple injuries that Zimmerman sustained all point that indeed Zimmerman was attacked.
Race is an issue on the Martin side of the fence. In spite of the mountain of evidence before them, Martin people still insist Zimmerman murdered him. Why? Because Martin was black.
Would you reread your post and see if you got the right names in all the right places?
I suspect you meant "no facts that Zimmerman attacked Martin", and not as you wrote it. Correct?

Look up the definition of stalking.....
Definition - Stalking is unwanted or obsessive attention by an individual or group toward another person.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stalking

I would guess there is no lie as to Zimmerman was the stalker, Zimmerman was stalking and anyone (including Mr. Martin) would have been fearful of being stalked/followed.

If you guys prefer the word following, Zimmerman was following Mr. Martin.

the pedophile was armed.

the pedophile turned the truck around because he thought the boy was black.

the pedophile got out of the truck and chased after the boy.

the pedophile was told by the SPD not to chase after the boy.

the boy had every right to be exactly where he was at.

the pedophile had no right to approach this boy who had every right to be where he was at.

the pedophile was a cop wannabe coward polished turd and parasite who will continue to cost taxpayers: he isn't done yet.

When a witness who has just called 911 to report suspicious behavior, is asked by the 911 operator to gather information about the suspect's actions, is it possible to gather the requested information without following the suspect?

How can the reporting party relay the asked for information without following the suspect in order to observe the suspect and his further actions?

Yes. Every word is pure conjecture and all of that nonsense was presented in the trial. ALL of it was soundly defeated as nonsense.
Get over it. Your nonsense is well, nonsense.

That trial could have went flawless with a video of OJ killing those people and the jury still would have found him not guilty. Just like if we had a video of Martin attacking Zimmerman, you would still be calling him a murderer.
OJ is innocent.
Why?
Because OJ is black.
Zimmerman is a murderer.
Why?
Because Martin was black.
As always, you are full of shit.

OJ was not innocent. OJ was acquitted because cops tampered with evidence and perjured themselves during the trial. The verdict was a legality, he was still guilty.

Same thing with Zimmerman. He was acquitted. The verdict was a legality, he was still guilty.

Karma bit OJ and she will bite Zimmerman.

No one thinks Zimmerman was defending himself. If he had stayed in his vehicle there would have been no confrontation. That was the only defense he needed, to say put and wait for the police to arrive.

Racists can make whatever claims they like. Zimmerman's head was not beaten on the concrete. He wasn't anywhere near concrete when he murdered Trayvon. He most likely slammed his ugly nose onto the ground after Trayvon shoved him, trying to make the pedophile leave him alone.

You racists have vilified Trayvon and made the known criminal with a long history of criminal activity into a saint. Why? We all know why. You think it's a good thing that a black boy is dead.

Karma is going to bite him in the ass one of these days. Ask OJ, it happens.

Right. He was so fearful that he decided to stay and wait for Zimmerman between the houses instead of going to the home he was staying at, so fearful that he didn't bother hanging up with his pig girlfriend and call police himself.

If stalking is unwanted or obsessive attention by an individual, I guess that makes Martin a stalker too since he was standing there staring at Zimmerman while he was sitting in his truck.

Even though you were not there, you are positive that Zeeeeeeeeeeee was the culprit. Other people who were not there are equally positive that Martin was the aggressor. The truth is that we don't know. I highly suspect that all sides are relying on their personal racial hostility to make up their minds.
We have been duped by the press. IMO the press got what it wanted: a lot of TV viewing, and separation and anger between the races.
There are Trayvons dying every day. Most are killed by other blacks. A check of Trayvon's past indicate that he was in danger of being engulfed by the thug culture. Trayvon's death could shine a light into the plight of the inner-city. It is too bad that it has not. Meanwhile the killing continues..........
Trayvon didn't have a criminal background. Zimmerman does.

Trayvon would have followed his older brother to college. Your predictions are based on racism and are invalid.

Baa baa.

You mean no one besides the people you run into every day that say he was defending himself?

Martin was trying to stand his ground? No, hitting a man to the ground, pinning him down so he can't escape, beating his head into the cement, busting his nose, and blackening his eyes are not standing your ground, that's called felonious assault and it's against the law in all 50 of our states.

If Zimmerman didn't have that gun to protect himself and the police pulled up during this violent attack, Martin would have been arrested and tried for felonious assault or perhaps even attempted murder.

When Martin was shot and killed, he was in the process of a criminal act. Zimmerman on the other hand broke no laws.
