<quoted text>I hope I didn't leave you with the impression that I felt that Zimmerman should have waited until he was unconscious to defend himself, obviously that could be suicidal. I was pointing out that perhaps Zimmerman thought at any moment he could pass out from the blows he was receiving and then knew instantly that he could then possibly be killed with his own weapon, so he simply shot Trayvon Martin to make sure he survived.
We are on the same page. It's apparent that some of the morons on here don't understand that it only takes one good slam to render you unconscious. If he would have waited for one more it could have been to late.

He matched the description of suspects. You seem to know little about the case. Not surprised.
George knew the suspect was in jail and had been there for 3 weeks.

LOL. LOL. You're lies are irrelevant to the case. By the way did you know he was NOT GUILTY?

What is the hardest to accept? The fact that Zimmerman was proven not guilty or the fact that Martin was proven to be a thug and the aggressor during the trial?

No. He sold to AOL and for a while the company name was AOL Time Warner but they must have got fed up with his liberal ass too. He is no longer a big wig involved with its running. In short, it's minions who worship his liberal ass calling the shots now.

Trayvon Martin was being followed and harrassed by some crazed wet-back. He was the one with the right to stand his ground. The INS should check into Zimmerman's immigration status.
Anyone know what the toxicology report on Zimmerman showed? Did they even bother?

Residents of other states don't know what is going on with the stand your ground law in Florida.

Liberal judges don't support it so they are interpreting it as liberally as possible to discredit it.

Conservative judges support it so they are interpreting it as liberally as possible to the advantage of the gun owners.

Sanity has left the building.

To promote their agenda, both sides have decided to ignore over 400 years of jurisprudence.

obviously nothing to see. try again.
The question is whether or not they even tried to obtain that information.

If they didn't, they ignored standard investigative procedures.

One more time. A finding of not guilty in a court of law is not proof of innocence.

The odds of pulling off a 90 degree angle shot thru the heart when two persons are on the ground struggling one on top of the other are about the same the odds of winning the lottery. Maybe even worse.

If no toxicology screening was done on Zimmerman, the Martin family has a very good civil case against the Sanford PD.

Negligence for failing to follow standard investigative procedures.

Of course, they have that on several other mistakes as well.

We do know that if Zimmerman had stayed in his vehicle and not chased Trayvon down, Trayvon would never have had to defend himself and would never have been murdered in cold blood.

Zimmerman had the right to defend himself. Trayvon did not.
