You post are a parade of ignorance, George himself has been arrested more times then the Martin family. Had George not been the son of a Judge, this case would be over by now and he'd be in prison facing real time, not the slap on the wrist he'll get. In actuality your idiotic post are the last things The Zimmerman family want to state, or even have stated. It's no wonder Lakeland property value is so low.

Actually, Martin does not need to be locked up, because he is dead. Whether that is justice or injustice is up to the court to decide.
Gompertz when will you learn. Justice and courts. We live in a country that our represenitives except donations from NAMBLA. Florida has a very simple system, minorities go to buildings of detention and the mighty whities have probation and fines. Ya I get it, George is a minority too. He has mega juice. So much juice he could shot someone without getting arrested, yet he can't get a job as a Law Enforcement Officer.

He is deceased..but.. if the Sanford Police would have responded to the scene earlier Trayvon would be alive today sitting in a jail cell where he belongs...as for the end to this case..LET the WHEELS of Justice ROLL and NOT be pressured by OUTSIDE OPINIONS or POLITICAL PRESSURE....

Good riddance. Let him rot in Hell for all eternity, forever falling, forever burning, screaming in agony, paying for his sins against mankind. Let him burn. Amen.

Trayvon's father lived in that gated community in Florida. He wasn't trespassing at all beause he had a right to be there. Mr. Zimmerman only saw a young Black male as a suspect and decided to follow him even though the 911 operator said not to. Mr.Zimmerman acted irresponsibly and that is why Trayvon Martin is dead and Zimmerman is rightfully charged with 2nd degree murder.

Robert, what exactly is it that I am supposed to learn? I have been following a lot of cases in which the courts acting unjustly. Prosecutorial misconduct is rampant. Look at the Amanda Knox case. Two innocent people spent four years in prison for a crime they did not commit. They were finally cleared because, in the Italian system, the appeal is automatic. There is no need to wait for the prosecutor to agree to a review of the evidence. Here in America, we have, for instance,, the Kern County witch hunts, the Billy Wayne Cope travesty, to mention just two. In Texas, there are so many exonerees, wrongly convicted and later released, that they have banded together and formed an organization. Check out the Innocence Projects which are busy getting innocent people cleared. And then there is the phenomenon of "false confession. 25% of the people cleared by Innocence Projects had confessed to a crime they did not commit. Such is the power of the Reid technique which is used by police to get a conviction through psychological manipulation. You must be familiar with the Reid technique, Robert?
However, turning to the Zimmerman case. My biggest concern there is that Zimmerman can't get a fair trial because of the influence of Sharpton, Jackson, and the other race hustlers and their hordes of soldiers screaming "no justice, no peace" just in time to stir up Obama's radical base in time for the election.
Read the affidavit charging Zimmerman with second degree murder and see if the prosecution would have a chance if not for the political pressure to convict. For one thing, the affidavit only says "a struggle ensued" at the crucial point. Who initiated the struggle? Why does a witness say Zimmerman was getting his head pounded into the ground at the time he reached for his gun? There is much about this case that has not been answered.
For one thing, the Twin Lakes community where Zimmerman lived and where Martin was staying with relatives, is only about 50% White. The rest are Black or Hispanic. Very unlikely Z would have singled out Martin simply for being Black in a community that had many Black residents. More likely he simply did not recognize Martin as a resident. Add to that the prevalence of breakins in the community and you have a reason for Z to be suspicious of anyone he did not recognize as a resident. A complicated case, and one will have to wait until more facts are revealed before jumping to conclusions about who was at fault.

Gompertz I am sorry for the delay with my answer. I was busy this week. It is the State of Florida vs George Zimmerman, and the state would be better off if George wins. The first, of two reasons is not a blatent conspiracy theory. It is Florida would save money with these citizen patrols. Permitting a volunteer neighborhood watch the level of authority that will be granted with the class action weight of this case. They'd have more juice then your New York State Troopers. A lose of a lawsuit and other moneys lost would be made up. George also has the benefit of The NRA wanting to turn Florida into the wild west.

The second reason and the reason that is primary and undisputable by definition of the results if Zimmerman walks is. Under X circumstance person A is permuted to kill person B, and this would go without ANY certification. Elitism at it's highest, as we pretend George is getting the same treatment all others would get. His father is a judge in The Florida Courts.

I do love the ted Nugent support. Ted "shot the cops in the head" Nugent now has undying respect for the authority of "The Neighborhood Watch". Priceless. Which leads to the activist game. Yes, why hasn't anyone been arrested for the public offering of a bounty. Same as stated above. Now people that are "officially" activist are permuted this level of Free Speech. The right wing activist are not screaming because they will be afforded the same luxury.

I did leave one thing out and I'll make it short and sweet. I don't think anyone's name should have been released to media.

It may be that Martin did nothing wrong, however, most white people do practice profiling and with good cause. If the black community wish to eliminate white typecasting of them then they must correct their actions, attitudes, educations, respect for all, including themselves and behave like people should. The blacks were given intergration far too soon, this action should have been earned. You do not give currebt Civilization to someone 200 years behind it. If the blacks wish equal rights then they only have to earn them.

The Sanford police were right in not charging Zimmerson for his actions. If the blacks wants equal rights then let them earn them. The general actions of blacks is such that they will never be treated equally until and unless they show the white people they are ready to live in harmony with all, including themselves. Dont blame the white people for their lack of respect they endow. There is a way to live in harmony, most whites have learned how.

The "Stand Your Ground Law" is a worthwhile effort on the part of respectable people to protect themselves from thugs of all kinds. It's not the laws fault that the majority of thugs and dispespectalbe people happen to be black. I for one am a licensed concealed weapons permit carrier and I will, like Zimmerman do whatever is necessary to protect my family and others deserving. This would be one hell of a place to live if legal ownership of protective devices were taken away. You know as well as I who would own them and how unsafe you would be...

Sorry but Zimmerman's wounds looked more like WWE wounds then UFC or UCF wounds.
