Apart from the jaw issue, I think we're damn near in agreement.

I'll give you calculated and astute, I'll retract unreasonable, and I'll add irresponsible, particularly considering the sensitivity of the subject matter at hand and certainly considering the fact he's an attorney.

Irresponsible indeed, but that's politics as usual. Doesn't make it okay, but it doesn't make it all that surprising either.

He was armed and on NW patrol.


Y'all talk about this as if it's a normal thing. Armed neighborhood watch? The frick is this shit?

Your problem seems to be with big bad GZ tailing the kid, or is it GZ thought he looked suspicious in the first place?


Mostly the former and lesser the latt


Is it not normal for anyone to be armed? What is wrong with being armed, especially on NW?

So, you would not want your NW to tail a suspicious looking character? What if he was not black, would that be ok?

Well, no. It wasn't beside mine.

My whole point is that TM didn't need to die. I get and accept the verdict of the trial.


Where is your thread about all the other people that did not need to die? What is it about this case that has you so riled?

I've explained this a gazillion times. Just GZ wasn't convicted of a crime doesn't mean I have to fricking like him or not think that, had he acted differently, TM wouldn't be six feet under.


But GZ may be, but you would not care about that for some reason.

I'm saying that it is NOT self defense when you pull out a gun and kill someone who is not armed. None of this happens if he leaves the kid well enough alone. Following him...tracking him...and then (I think...shooting the kid b/c he was scared shitless) is negligent...he is plainly guilty of manslaughter at a minimum. He is NOT a cop...he should not have been playing one in the grass at that development that night.



what is wrong with folowing and questioning someone. What does that hurt? Young people these days do not like to be questioned, or to think they are wrong. What is so wrong with one man questioning another? A polite explanation would have been the proper response. If TM is the "kid" everyone said he was, then respect your damn elders and just have the conversation like regular folk, not act a fool and beat some arse cause you felt "dis-respected" for being questioned.

I'll just say: MichiganTiger didn't watch the trial - obviously.

Even if, it only enhances my point that Zimmerman wasn't in any real danger.


Nose broken, head getting smashed against concrete while being straddled by someone saying 'tonight is the night you die mother*****'.

What the hell gave him the idea he was in danger?

Wow, this asinine thread is still going?

People didn't watch the trial nor do they know the laws in Florida.

If they did, they wouldn't still be bitching about this.

Move on.

Um. Because you are not obligated to just let someone continue to beat your ass.

My god. This whole line of thinking is just amazing. No one really thinks that one should be obligated to continue to let their arse get beat if they have the means to stop it.

That's fricking retarded.

People who want "justice" for TM should be protesting the Florida law that allows you to use lethal force before your opponent does.

Zimmerman was clearly stalking the kid. That's obvious based on the 911 tape.

Not so moose breath. The timeline established by the 911 call and what's-her-names phone records show that Zimmerman lost sight of Trayvon and heading back to his truck 4 minutes before Trayvon started the fight.
There is no evidence to support your erroneous supposition.
