So he held a gun at some point, and was around pot at some point. Someones character or past actions doesnt give you the right to kill them, and if these things had zero to do with the crime when it happened, its unrelated, and not evidence.


It's evidence that is extremely clearly related to the most important thing about this case - the depiction of it in the media and the politicians using it for their own ends.

The jurors have not had their memories wiped, nor have they been living in quarantine without any contact with the outside world since before the killing.

Giving one side carte blanche to lie for the purposes of biasing a trial and forbidding the other side to reply is not a fair trial.

It`s not evidence that he attacked Zimmerman, but it is evidence that the propaganda since then is false and that`s very relevant to a trial by a jury that has been heavily exposed to that propaganda.

Two people who acted incorrectly, both were overzealous and fearful, one shot the other. Zimmerman shouldn't have followed him, Trayvon shouldn`t have started throwing punches. I don`t think this is murder though, rather it is "Voluntary manslaughter" via "imperfect self-defense" at worst, or "Involuntary manslaughter" at least.

I don`t think Zimmerman was on the hunt to kill someone that night, but you see these kind of people all the time in "Citizens on Patrol" groups in bad neighborhoods. They are trying to do good, but often get too wrapped up in what they are doing.

@Ducky obviously that came close to the bone.

They need to hurry up and convict this felon as a warning to all those who would abuse Stand Your Ground for kicks.

Someones character or past actions doesnt give you the right to kill them, and if these things had zero to do with the crime when it happened, its unrelated, and not evidence. I've done both of those things, but if I went out today, unarmed, and someone shot me, does that mean that I was at fault because atone point I did these things? Absolutely not. Granted, it paints a different picture as to the character of the victim, but frankly thats irrelevant to the crime at hand.
