I seems there's a HUGE divide between what GZ's motives were & between what took place.
There seems to be a HUGE divide between if TM was a thug, or an innocent kid.
Let me say this....
IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT HIS BACKROUND WAS. It also doesn't matter IF GM was trying (in his mind) to do a justful thing.
Let me ask you, if it was your kid...if you lived in the same upper-middleclass neighborhood, where there had been break-ins for the past few weeks...would you tell your kid to run, &/or fight back, if need be? The kid was STALKED after being told not to by the 911 dispatcher. I know if it was me, I'd of been freaked out with someone stalking me in the rain, while I'm trying to get home to snack on my candy. I damn sure tell my kids, if you don't know someone following you, find an adult you do know, or get away, if they're following you.
That said, TM was a 17 year old who had his life taken, for no reason...GZ got no charges from a "stand your ground law" that should've actually applied to TM, since he was the one being pursued. Not GZ, the aggressor.
GZ is an hispanic male, so enough of the black, white stuff please.
The backround of TM is irrelevent in this case. GZ neither witnessed or had any reason to suspect TM of being involved in any crime whatsoever.
The "break-in tool" was in fact a screw driver, which I carry on me at all times.
Please stop with the racial stuff...this case had profiling too it, but it had NOTHING to do with racial profiling. This is a tragic case of a wanna be cop, *Tackleberry*, getting his a$$ handed to him by a scared boy.
Unfortunately & tragically, this coward didn't take the beating he deserved for stalking this kid, & decided to murder him.
a 30 something white male, that doesn't let the media dictate what I believe

My big question. I wonder what the possible jurors think about this so far? .......
So, where is the blood? The bruises? Not even a scratch.

Look under the left eye you
can clearly see bruising, and
his nose looks pretty damn crooked
if you ask me. His nose is not normal,
that is for sure. You can see the injuries
a little better this way. It does look like
he is injured.
Also on the police report
the officers attest to him
having bruises and blood,
signs that he had been in
a struggle. Now surely not everyone
of the cops are lying, and the eye witness,
the 9-11 calls speak for themselves zimmerman
is screaming for help. The video was leaked by
Zimmerman has marks sure, but if he thinks they were life threatening, then at the least he was overzealous.

Zimmerman at Police Stationedit on 28-3-2012 by Chai_An because: (no reason given)
You are aware that cuts eventually stop bleeding right? A bloody nose and a head injury will not bleed indefinitely. But at 50 seconds in you can see the cop looking at the back of his head and according to the police report they did administer first aid.

fighting one on one with no weapons will very rarely end in a life threatening situation unless you are an untrained fighter fighting a boxer or martial artist.
