Still haven't heard a logical reason (besides racism) to believe that Zimmerman is guilty... I don't think I will, either. Why are you Zimmerman-haters holding back?

I think the media hides the raw truth and tries to paint a picture. This kid had been in trouble before and was a thug hanging out where he shouldnt have been. They needed to show his Grown Up picture.

<quoted text>I'm sorry, but they have already released the information that demonstrates that Zimmerman confronted Martin. You can hid your head in the sand all you like. He got out of his vehicle and managed to get two streets over and encounter Martin again. I don't know what your game is, but IF his attorney is worth his salt, he will advise that bozo to plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter to avoid a trial. I think that will provide some consolation to the Martin family.
Try to keep up with the news before attacking me and calling me illogical. This is not "my camp". This is finding justice for an innocent teen who was murdered. Period.

Zimmerman’s cop connection in Trayvon Martin case
New evidence shows the defendant counts a law enforcement officer as a close adviser
..........But questions about whether Zimmerman had actual connections with police or justice system higher-ups that may have influenced the early decision to not charge him were piqued this week with the release of new evidence in the closely-watched case, including an observation by one detective that Zimmerman’s take on the shooting seemed “scripted.”
Documents from the FBI and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement suggest indirectly that Zimmerman’s closest adviser in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin shooting has been a federal agent – a US air marshal and former Seminole County sheriff’s deputy identified by the Miami Herald as a man named Mark Osterman.
Mr. Osterman was at Zimmerman’s side as he returned to the scene of the crime the day after the shooting to go over what happened with detectives.
(Read the entire story at the link.)
.....
That "friend" was with him the next morning when he demonstrated for LE what happened the night before when he killed Trayvon Martin. When a man who considers himself "logical" doesn't at least pause to consider what a liar Zimmerman has already proven himself to be, I think you must have some kind of other issue going on here. I believe people have the right to defend themselves. I don't believe they have the right to stalk and hunt down somebody they deem suspicious and then snuff out a life. Sorry.
You're obviously not seeking justice if you have already jumped to conclusions without getting all the facts.

Agreed. This poster exhibits racism (sometimes refer to reverse racism) in a very accurate sense. When one bases opinions on the color of the victim, and not the facts, this is the result though she will never admit it. Instead, she will try to accuse me of being a racist, but the fact is that I am a realist who seeks facts over the racial identity of the parties involved. With her lack of interest in the debate, I would speculate that she has seen the error in her way. Hey, I could be wrong. Time will tell.

<quoted text>LOL. I'd rather keep my Topix hobby when I'm not taking care of 7 acres of land, two formal gardens, a vegetable garden too most years, and a 5,000 sq. ft. old house to clean. Honey, don't let your imagination run toward wheel chairs and walkers. I wear a size 5, love to dance, and I write "stuff" other than what I post on Topix. I'm good. Worry about what's inside your heart that this old woman sees it so clearly and wants you to get well soon. If you don't, you'll be a very unhappy old timer. The world is changing, and you need to stay with the program. You're "older" than I and probably young enough to be my child. Stop hating. It will eat you up alive and make you old before your time.
pff, you should take your own advice, your hatred for whites is eating you alive.

and if you actually have 7 acres, and a 5,000sqft house, that YOU take care of, how could you possibly have so much time as you do to constantly post your white-hate on topix all day and all night?

sorry old gal, seen you on here for too long, know exactly who you are.

The only reason righties are defending this murderer is over their fear of losing a bad piece of gun legislation.
The main reason L I b E ral S are calling self defense murder is that they are afraid they will not be able to ban private ownership of firearms.

I think you know why there is an outcry about this particular case. Don't you? It starts with two grieving parents who wanted justice for their son. It includes a growing national awareness of how Stand your Ground laws are so poorly written as to allow innocents to be murdered if George Zimmerman could hide behind that law as justification for murder or manslaughter. We'll know what the courts have to say about that when he has his preliminary hearing and Judge Lester hears arguments for and against.
Zimmerman did not use the stand your ground law as a basis for his case. It was tried simply on his right to self defense,( defending himself from a beat down by Martin),not stand your ground. No murder or manslaughter here,( other than slander) just a man fighting for his life.

What happened to Trayvon Martin in 2012 is what happened to Emmitt Till in 1954. He got shot for being a black kid. The 911 tapes make that clear. For those who "cant make up their mind", u got serious issues. If it was a white kid, being stalked by a black man who appointed himself deputy, yall be havin a field day for callin for that man's head. Heck... the racists on these forums call for black folks heads on the day to day reg... it aint no surprise for Scarecrow why this happened. It happened because we got people like Scarecrow in this world.
it happened 2 months later in FLORIDA WHEN A BLACK MAN SHOT A 16 year old WHITE BOY!!!!! He was probably a PUNK TOO!!!!! Just like Trayvon.. You REAP WHAT YOU SOW I DON'T FEEL SORRY FOR EITHER CHILD!!! Parents need to discipline their children and quit letting the GHETTO PARENT THEM!!!!
