Get over it. True Americans police themselves.
If TM wasn't a threat then he could have engaged in intelligent discussion with Zimmerman about his actions and intentions in that neighborhood instead of continuing to act in a sketchy and clandestine fashion.
His malice and prejudice is clearly outlined by the the profiling remarks he made regarding "The creepy ass cracker". Enough said.
Don't skulk around residential homes you don't have a business being around and then adopt an attitude of defiance, aggression and prejudice. Citizens are watching and...... Defending.

Right now, I thank my lucky stars my sister is out of FL right now lol. I was a bit more concerned when her and her boyfriend where down there. Probably sounds cold, but we both look white lol. Just like Zimmerman, even though we are a good bit native north american. Her boyfriend is also half hispanic and looks white, they were worried enough to move back to NY before the trial even stared, racial tensions were intense.
Then why do we even have a Police force in every city and town across the whole country?
There was nothing sketchy or clandestine about how he was acting prior to Zimmerman following him. He simply used a known cut through to walk to the store. Expecting him to have "intelligent discussion" is just silly. Here is a kid who just 21 days prior had turned 17 years old. He is being followed by a man in a vehicle. We teach children from the day one to NOT speak to strangers, yet you expect him to stop and explain himself to a total stranger who was following him around in a car? Your statements would hold true if Zimmerman had identified himself as neighborhood watch- but that never happened. George Zimmerman never said a word to Martin. He just followed him.
Enough said? Hardly. So following a kid around in a car is not creepy? If you really believe this, please drive to any high school and follow some kid around in your car as he walks home. Let me know how that works out for you. Or do it from a park, the mall, any store.
So Trayvon was wrong for taking a known short cut? That's brilliant. The remainder of your post is nothing more than race baiting so I have no intentioned of engaging such small mindedness.

Wrong. He said the job of scraping the fingernails was that of the technicians. He also stated that different states have different protocols. Some require cuttings and some don't. It was not that the autopsy wasn't done correctly; it was that the snipping of the fingernails is not in the protocol for the technicians in Florida.
Maybe what needs to be done is to have the technician called in order to describe the protocol for his position. Or we can just assume there was an issue because the defense brought it up on re=direct. Perhaps it was just a strategy to perplex the jury.
The defense can surely call the tech. but I doubt they will. They only purpose for that line of questioning was to create some doubt in the juries mind regarding the efficiency of the autopsy.
This is lawyering 101.

Ha ha ha. That proves he was racist?? He was talking to a friend. We have been over this ad nauseam. It is slang. He was a "creepy ass cracker" that was stalking TM, following him in his car like a creepy pedophile. It is slang. It is slang. It is slang.
You are so dense. Really. My white sons have used the term, and have used the slang term "nigga". All their friends do the same thing. In texts, on facebook, in my living room. The term is "nigga". It is slang. It is kind of like saying "dude". They will say to each other, "Whas up nigga", or "Whas up my nigga". It is how kid's talk. Seriously, you can't be that naive. Do you live in a cave??
Man you guys will reach for anything. It is very sad.edit on 6-7-2013 by GrantedBail because: (no reason given)
