When you fill out a gun application you have to check Hispanic or white non Hispanic.

This.

GZ's race is being ignored. I think he is getting an unfair portrayal from the media based on preconceived notions that Latinos are violent.

You've seen all the evidence?

Zimmerman better hope his lawyers deliver some better material than this.

it's the same issue as the media continuing to use a "cute and cuddly" picture of trayvon that was more than half a decade old

the media picked a loser in this case, and it's GZ. if he's acquitted (which is likely), and there ar riots, the media is to blame

if the media gave half a frick about minority on minority crime, chicago, nola, and BR would be full of national media pushing sob stories about the minority-minority killings going on constantly

I agree with 100% of this.

I will reserve my judgement. I was not there and I don't know what was going through either of their minds but adrenaline is a hell of a drug and the prospect of getting your arse kicked can cause an irrational behavior to form.

How come Zimm's wife never felt the need to kill him when he was kicking her ass?


You seem fixated on this and I'm not really sure why. Was she there and Trayvon tried to knight for her, leading to MZ shooting him? I must have missed that part.

Here's a recap of yesterday for anyone interested. LINK

Sounds like the prosecution will try to use this to show Zimmerman was on top of Martin.

quote:

Also at issue is whether Martin was on top of Zimmerman when the fatal shot was fired. West mentioned several pieces of evidence in his opening remarks—including the can of iced tea found on Martin after the shooting—to suggest Zimmerman was in a prone position. The lack of blood on Martin’s hands, noted in the state’s attorney’s remarks, was explained by the wet conditions and perhaps a medical examiner’s mistakes. As for the absence of Martin’s DNA? West said that “doesn’t necessarily prove anything.” West even closed by countering the prosecution’s statement that Martin was unarmed.

Isn't it wonderful how much power the media has over us as a society? One gang banger executes another in North Baton Rouge, Chicago, The Bronx, NOLA, LA, or Detroit, no one bats an eye. When a guy with a name like Zimmerman shoots a teen named Trayvon who is beating the shite out of him (however the fight started doesn't matter), the media sees white on black murder and absolutely creams their panties, jumps the gun and makes it look like a hate crime.

Then we take to the internet and blow things wayyy out of proportion. Spike Lee tweeted the guy's address for frick's sake, (even though it was wrong) what happened to him? Nothing. The Black Panther Party had a fricking BOUNTY out for the guy. What happened to them? Nothing.

The media and racial double standards are what people are mad about here, not the actual event. That's what pisses me off the most.

Well "shoot, shoot, shoot, kill, kill, kill" is not what would be going through my mind. I'd defend myself with my hands, like a real man. Hell, Craig didn't even need to shoot Debo. You think Zimm NEEDED to shoot this kid?



This is where it gets muddy. Zimmerman should have pulled weapon immediately? Had he done this and Martin charged and been shot?? What happens. People are getting wrapped up in his age and the fact that it was a fight and they think schoolboy fight.

of course this case is about race. it wouldn't be anything else if it wasn't nonblack on black murder.
the main driving force behind this is race and has been since the crime occurred.
blacks support the black person and whites support the white person (or white Hispanic in this case).
Regardless of the outcome of this case, just the situation it is now, just proves that people are more comfortable and trustworthy around others simply based on that other person's skin color.

He has a good chance of being acquitted.

He admitted to the shooting....he only has to prove self defense to one of the 6 female jurors (none of which are black).

Unless a witness is produced that refutes his testimony completely and he doesn't have any irregularities with his story, I think he's got a shot, no pun intended.

How in the world can GZ get a fair trial anywhere when the freaking POTUS has already picked a winner. Unbelievable.

The media hitched their wagon to the innocent kid early on. I remember when several ESPN personalities, Trey Wingo for sure, wore hoodies on air in support of Trayvon.

Without knowing any details....smh

ETA: 4-5 kids of African descent here in Columbia jumped a kid leaving a bar area last year. It turned out to be gang initiation, they had to beat up a white guy. Almost killed him. Carter Strange was the victim's name. Look it up, I'm sure you never heard about this one.

Did anyone hear what the voice analyists said about the recording of "the scream for help". I found it to be crazy that the judge would not allow the experts to cross examined, but would allow the tape to be played in court. That piece of evedince seems to be the key to the trial.

Either way if Zimmerman is innocent, which i have no clue if he is or isn't, the fact that he claims it was him screaming for help combined with fact he is a grown arse man getting whooped up on by a teenager makes me

I don't think the prosecution is allowed to use their voice expert that claimed it was TM due to the method being unreliable.

The defense was able to use TM's dad saying it wasn't him though.

Do we have a White Hispanic version of Al Sharpton? If so, he is gonna be pissed if GZ is convicted.
