    Utter bunk here. Google a CURRENT picture of poor lil Trayvon and tell me he doesn’t look like a thug. That cute little 12 year old was lost long ago and a 17 year old thug who attacked a guy & called him a racist term is who died, due to self defense. Zimmerman will get off as he’s NOT GUILTY.

    It doesn’t matter if he looked like the scariest thug on Earth. It doesn’t change the fact that Zimmerman was expressly told to stay in his car. He disobeyed those orders, pursued an unarmed teen 1/2 his size, and then shot him.

    Even if he’s found guilty, he’ll have grounds for an appeal because of his incompetent defense attorney. I mean, really, telling a bad joke in his opening statement…
    …then again, good planning – maybe he’s not so stupid, after all!

    Sure, in your mind it’s OK to create a hostile situation and then shoot anyone you provoke. If Zimmereman is the epitome of the “stand your ground” law, everyone in Florida is at risk of being shot where ever they are.

    I would hope George Zimmerman will at least serve time for manslaughter. As incompetently as the trial seems to be run, the jury should at least be allowed to rule that it was his actions that led to Trayvon Martin’s death. He needs to be held accountable for that.

    So what you are saying is that IF one is having his head slammed into the edge of a concrete sidewalk over and over and is unable to dislodge his attacker, and IF that person has said “you’re going to die tonight” and to you the person is doing his level best to accomplish that goal, then you have no right to respond in any way to prevent that from happening. Correct?

    It’s quite possible that the jury will find that there’s insufficient evidence to find Zimmerman guilty of second-degree murder, and possible that they will acquit entirely. We shall see. But beyond this particular case, can we agree that Martin would be alive today and Zimmerman wouldn’t be on trial for murder if he hadn’t been carrying a gun?

    The evidence has shown that your story that was fed to you by the lame stream media is bunk.
    So if you were told by a civilian 911 operator, and you go back to your car and get jumped, you are in the wrong? So it is wrong to get out of your car in your own neighborhood? and the “kid” was 160lb football player and an expert testified that Zimmerman was a wimp could not have defended himself against a 160lb guy. and so when would have been a good time shot the guy who is bashing your head into the concrete? It has been proven ion court that Z was on the bottom and an Eye witness testified that he was being pummeled mma style.

    Martin, who was doing nothing wrong, was being pursued by an armed man. He was Martin you could claim self-defense under the stand-your-ground law of Florida.

    Zimmerman was a wanna be.. and that concealed weapon made him.. a big guy. Pathetic but so it is with most of those “carrying”. So he thinks he is a one man posse.. starts a confrontation that he can not handle.. without his secret weapon… and uses it. Then.. with help from his friends concocts a self defense story and tries to sell it.

    He will walk.. precisely because of the race issue.. just as IF the colors were reversed and everything else was the same he would hang.
    And that is the justice system you are all proud of.

    True, Zimmerman could have been dead with his head bashed in. or maybe brain damage? or maybe Martin could have also had the gun he wanted and both would have been dead.

    It has been proven in a court of law that Martin was on top of a weaker guy hitting him mma style. that is “doing nothing wrong”

    “If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. It kills the good and the very gentle and the brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure that it will kill you too, but there will be no special hurry.” from Dorothy Stratton’s tomb in Westwood Memorial Park, Westwood California.

    God forbid I ever go ‘round your neighborhood on a day I don’t shave properly. You’d just shoot me because I LOOK like a thug? Really?
    Are you paying any attention to this at all?
