    Jeezuz, America: you`re the ones who want to be able to pack handguns around wherever you go! So some poor sap who wonders what a strange kid is doing skulking around his neighbourhood ends up being assaulted. What the *hell* did you expect would happen? He`s getting punched, his head banged on the concrete - of course he`s going to pull that gun! if gun carry laws are enacted everywhere the way 90-odd percent of IABers seem to want, a lot of simple assaults will be escalated to homicides in just this way.

    @ carmium - or maybe those simple assaults won`t take place. Would you attack someone if you thought they had a gun?

    The real difference?

    >>> Zimmerman was profiled based on skin colour alone.

    Chew on it IAB Liberal Brigade: it`s the truth! Because (in fact) GZ isn`t even "white"!

    @carmium, when someone is banging your head on the concrete, you`re only seconds away from them killing you. It`s fight or die. You don`t seem to understand the course of events here.

    @5cats: No. he was profiled because he followed Trayvon. While that`s still perfectly legal here in the state of Florida, we both know that if he had simply waited for the cops to come, Martin would still be alive.

    @nerdrage: You forget that it`s also when some strange dude is following you, you might be seconds away from them killing you. Even if Trayvon threw the first punch, if he felt in fear for his life, he had every right to do so. Legally.

    IF zimmerman would not have shot him TM would still be in jail for either

    A. attempted murder *(for slamming his head into the concrete)
    or
    B. aggravated assault with battery *(for slamming his head repeatedly into the concrete)

    If Trayvon had lived he`d be tried as an adult by the same prosecutors who described his as that "innocent child" and that "liitle boy with skittles".

    It was funny that people keep saying "He profiled Trayvon". So what? The police cannot racially profile but citizens are free to do so, it`s not illegal. They just don`t want to admit that, at least in this case, the PROFILE was 100% correct.

    Here`s the new Trayvon Martin Memorial meme on the web.
    They are really trying to make him into some martyred saint. The Martin family lawyer compared Trayvon to Medgar Evers...as if.

    @jtreb: You literally have NO IDEA what actually transpired, do you?
    What the "ear witness" said? What the PROSECUTION said happened? What the evidence shows? No clue at all?
    TM initiated contact TWICE.

    If "following someone" is a life threatening situation? Legal Grounds for ASSAULT? Cheezus!

    @paco664 You forgot the most likely outcome:

    C. 1st-degeree murder, because that`s where this was headed.

    The facts:

    Martin was a violent criminal. His record was suppressed by the judge and censored by the racist liberal media.

    TM was suspended from school for "behavior problems."

    TM belonged to an MMA-style "fight club."

    TM was busted with burglary tools and women`s jewelry that he couldn`t explain.

    From the time TM left the 7-11 till GZ called police to report a suspicious character was 45 F***ING MINUTES! The 7-11 is a 10-min walk from his house. TM was NOT walking home from the store; he was casing the neighborhood.

    When GZ ended his 911 call, TM was <50 yds from home. The first 911 call by a neighbor was >4 min later. TM had plenty of time to make it home. Instead, he doubled back and sucker-punched GZ.

    TM ditched a slim-Jim in the bushes before he jumped TZ.

    5cats: "If "following someone" is a life threatening situation?" It can be. The fact that you would run away like a little girl is duly noted. So is the fact that, in light of our previous conversation, you conveniently ignored OldOllies earlier comment.

    jtrebowski-"Even if Trayvon threw the first punch, if he felt in fear for his life, he had every right to do so. Legally."

    No, not legally. One of burdens of proof for the stand your ground law is that a `reasonable` person would feel in fear of their life.

    Being followed by someone does not make me afraid for my life.

    Having my head repeatedly beat into the sidewalk by someone, on the other hand, does.

    Of course, your inability to recognize the difference is par for the course.

    I don`t rememember any "slim jim" being connected to Trayvon.
    That`s because you get your "news" from left-wing censored sources.

    Here`s an excerpt from the trial:

    O`MARA: As a matter of fact, there was a type of a tool found in the area where Trayvon Martin may have been hiding, wasn`t there?
    SERINO: Approximately five, six days after the investigation at the scene, yes.
    O`MARA: Right. When you went back, you looked in the bushes and you found, what was it?
    SERINO: It was a piece of an awning belonging to - I believe it was a piece of a window - piece of hardware basically. Looked like a slim Jim.
    O`MARA: Slim Jim, and what`s a slim Jim?
    SERINO: A slim Jim is a device used to jimmy locks on vehicles primarily.
    O`MARA: To break into a vehicle?
    SERINO: Yes, sir.
    O`MARA: And that was found a few days after this event?
    SERINO: Yes, sir.

    Why didn`t we hear about this a year ago?

    oldollie - so 5-6 days after, they found a slim-jim? that sounds really convincing. did they not look before? im sure there was an initial investigation right? the only reason he won the case was because it was his word against nobody. with him killing the only witness all they had was circumstantial evidence and it was not enough to convict.

    @jops360 The reason why he won the case was that every single bit of evidence and testimony corroborated his version of events, and NOTHING the prosecution presented was able to refute even the smallest detail of it.

    I pity the fool who stands behind me in line at the supermarket! HEY! You following me? @jtreb says this is legal: *POW!*

    Really? O`Really?

    Ok troll-boy: If what GZ says is 100% true? Then YES TM DID "deserve a bullet". Deal with reality, son.

    You have some PROOF that GZ is making up lies? Lets hear it!

    I`ve recently received some hate-mail calling me a liar because I portend Trayvon is not the innocent, candy-bearing cherub he has been made out to be.

    Honestly, what difference would that possibly make to you? You made up your mind on GZ`s guilt based entirely on you own bigotry before you ever saw or heard ANY evidence, and now you`re too damned arrogant and pig-headed to admit that you might have been wrong.

    You suffer from "concrete brain syndrome" -- all mixed up and permanently set.

    GZ is innocent.
    This is the law.
    Innocent until proven guilty.
    What evidence is there that he broke the law?
    The prosecution closing argument was "go with your heart" not go with the facts.

    It is not which side do you believe. He Is Innocent unless proven guilty. You must start from the innocent side and, with facts, work your way over to the guilty side.

    The prosecution lawyers had no such facts. I assume therefore that the IAB population are more gifted and have these facts on hand to make the determination that GZ lied and did not have his head beat into the concrete that night.

    Please present your evidence.

    "I missed the part where Trayvons fingerprints were found on the slim jim"
    In point of fact they were not on the slim jim. However, neither GZs prints nor his dna were on the gun and we know he used it. It was raining heavily that night. Here is what we DO KNOW. Trayvon hid in those bushes. Trayvon had a history of breaking into cars and burglaring homes. It is not unreasonable to conclude that the slim jim found in those bushes was his after he had been seen "casing" cars.

    Have some common sense for God`s sake.

    All of this was evidence in the trial but not shown to the jury.

    Personally, I don`t really care what happened, who died or why. Evidently a lot of (mostly black) people do. I laugh at how some say they want to riot and/or kill Zimmerman. You`d think their demographic would appreciate the irony of mobs and lynchings.

    FYI, double jeopardy wouldn`t apply if the feds bring charges related to civil rights violations and charge GZ with a different crime. That stated, a person can be tried in Federal court for the same crime that person was aquitted of in state court and vice-versa under the "dual sovereignty" doctrine.

    It`s a loop hole to prosecute him again for the same crime. Much like sueing in civil court and paying damages for a crime he was found Not Guilty of.

    Florida is obviously the state you want to be in when you commit a murder.

    They don`t convict anyone, no matter how blatant.

    Maybe George and Casey Anthony can start a reality show together.

    PBS Newshour: Has 4 "opinions" on right now. The two "pro-Trayvon" endlessly repeat the fantasies. No facts at all. Cannot even get the type of drink he was carrying correct:

    Watermelon, NOT "Ice Tea".

    The race card: it`s the only card in their deck.

    I haven`t been following this case much so could someone please tell me if Zimmerman shot the kid AFTER he was beaten and the kid was already walking away? Just curious because I`m pretty sure that where I live, doing that would get Zimmerman jail time no matter how badly he was beaten. The reason being is that it`s not self-defence at that point when the aggression has ceased and the aggressor is leaving.

    All tghe forensic evidence supported zimmerman. It showed the Fatal shot was fired while Travon was on top of Zimmerman.
