who told Zimmerman to follow T M ? How would you feel at night if some creep were following you. We have indisputable evidence that the police force of sanford fla clearly and distictly told Zimmerman not to follow alleged suspect . Now that being said do you have indisputable evidence that trayvon jumped him? Or do you have an audio or video clip as proof to justify that accusation ? Out of Zimmerman's own mouth he made it clear that he did indeed follow T M after he was told by police ,not to.

I Knew this knuckle-headed black kid once . I was sort of a peace-hippy type of person but he was a jock jerk type of person . One day we got into a verbal altercation and then he attacked me . Truth be told , I didn't know how to fight and I was swinging like a girl.Long story short I got a lucky hit in and he went down. I always attributed his erratic behavior to him being a ghetto black hip hop listening kid ,weird thing was half of his friends were white and he got most of his money AND drugs from them. He later dropped out of school and I thought ,look at this ghetto bum, he will never amount to anything but one day while going to class at hcc he was there! We started talking about the old days and he even apologized about the incident . He said he wanted to impress his friends a lot that's why he did the things he did . Utter enimies became fast friends . At this time he is currently a manager for a logistics company and pulls in over 100k a year. My point is its not up to anyone to say that someone deserves to die especially at 17 yrs when all boys think that they are invincible . By all accounts , if word had got out that this pig-headed friend of mine would turn out to be such an upstanding person, people who knew him would have swore on everything they love that these accounts were false. Now we got people resorting to demonization of a dead 17 yr old who wasn't on police files to be a troublemaker.

Exactly what law did he break by doing so?

Whatever.
Trayvon broke the law when he attacked Zimmerman, Zimmerman had the right to defend himself.
Zimmerman had injuries that uphold his version of what happened. Except for the fatal gunshot wound, Trayvon had no injuries.

The witnesses before they were THREATENED into recanting all concurred with Zimmermans account.

This is the true injustice in this case, that witnesses and even Zimmerman can be threatened by individuals and organizations and nothing becomes of it.

This is nothing new to me or any other intellect . You whites are always so pure and just right ?You are trying to stand behind laws and not morality . Again where is your proof trayvon attacked him ? If Zimmmerman was sooooooo fearful of losing his life why did he pursue trayvon ? Zimmmerman is someone who's lies are catching up with him. Coming out of the woodwork with farfetched ideas that you so far havent proved even one of them. You are telling Zimmmerman side of the story , Just like OJ Simpson was lying Zimmmerman is . I'll make a deal prove one thing you are claiming ,just one.

Zimmermans attacker is dead, he was killed in self defense.

The witnesses who saw what happened, their stories concurred with the statements Zimmerman gave but they recanted in fear of retribution.

That is the real injustice, that witnesses and the accused can be publicly threatened and nothing is done and a man is charge with a crime after special interest groups pressure the Government though no law was broken.

Zimmermans wounds were inline with his account with what happened.
Except for the fatal gunshot wound, Trayvon had no injuries.
This would indicate that Trayvon started the assault on Zimmerman.

If Trayvon would not of attacked Zimmerman, he would be alive today.

Use your brain and THINK and quit using emotion to form your opinions.

Oh yeah, one last thing. In this Country, Zimmerman doesn't have to PROVE his innocence, the state must prove he is guilty of a crime.

Use that brain the good lord gave you and THINK!

You are a dumbazz racist. There is one witness who saw Zimmerman on his back crying out for help and called 911 .Zimmerman was wearing red and the witness said that also,
Every bit pf evidence that has been released shows that what Zimmerman said is correct.
Looks to me like you don't care about facts or evidence. A black was killed by a white/ Hispanic and that cannot stand no matter what.
Justice will always prevail even with you old tired racist haters trying to skew the process.

The thugs don't understand that America is tired of being the victim.
Two years ago I started carrying a handgun and I know many more who are doing the same.
I refuse to be a victim, to lose my personal property and to have my neighborhood run over by criminals.
I think you are going to see more and more criminals and thugs shot by their targeted victims.
It is truly a shame this young man had to die but according to Zimmermen, the witnesses, and the evidence,he initiated the assault.
I hope many would be thugs see this and change their attitude toward others and never resort to violence.

This is a very intelligent post because you arent trying to directly demonize blacks like patrick did saying " Violence is a part of American black culture" Choosing to ignore biker gangs such as the hells angels and warlocks and mongols whose members are over98% white . Who've also commited horrendus crimes against members of their own race ! Only thing is Zimmerman was the one who did the targeting . Still , I respect your post in not trying to make your opinion factual.

Trayvon did not use any "street smarts"
He decided to walk through a neighborhood that was not his own, late at night , where there had been much crime happening also covering his identity.
Trayvon was within his rights in doing so but Zimmerman was within his rights also,
I agree with Patrick in that the minute Trayvon attacked Zimmerman he became a criminal.

BTW, where is the evidence that Zimmerman is a drug dealer? This is the first I have heard of that and cannot find anything online about it.

Zimmerman is not a drug dealer. This was done to prove a point that one can say anything out of their own imagination , but to prove it is a different beast altogether . That being said you are well within your rights to agree with patrick but that doesn't mean that the source patrick heard it from was true , especially since it is via a claim of witness withdrawal of their statements?......... No thats too many wild tales about something you can't back up.

Well the intimidation of one witness did not work. He is going to testify if it ever gets that far.

You don't care about justice or truth, that's why I dislike people like you of all races creeds or color.
You have it set in your mind what happened and no matter what evidence, witnesses or accounts of that night will change your mind.
You are a perfect example of a BIGOT.
