George Zimmerman

George Zimmerman


The Background:

Trayvon martin Rally Julie-Fletcher, AP -WildAboutTrial.com

When an unarmed Florida teen was gunned down by a volunteer neighborhood watchguard without an arrest, millions of social activists took to the streets demanding justice for Trayvon Martin. Nearly a month after the murder, George Zimmerman was arrested and charged with the murder of the boy. As both sides prepare for trial and new evidence comes out every day, will the deciding factor in the case ultimately be Florida’s controversial “stand your ground” law? Trial is currently set for June 10, 2013.

Thank goodness for the jury system! Thank goodness for the NOT GUILTY!! Everyone needs to move on and get over it! He did nothing wrong. I don’t see anyone talking about all the latest shootings, black on black, that is! So what is it? It’s only news if its a Hispanic dude shooting a black dude? Oh wait…only if its a white dude shooting a black dude, right? Dude wasn’t even white, dumb ass idiots! He was a Latin dude! Ya’ll just hate white people and love every reason to fight against us! Stop front’n’.

FTANK—————

Yes—-I also herd JUDGE NELSON read the SYG law when she read the instructions to the jury. However, the one juror you are speaking about that spoke, this person was DARK SHADOWED by the station—CNN—ANDERSON COOPER-360, so that her face would not be seen. I now noticed that the news has stated that this JUROR is ONLY SPEAKING FOR HERSELF, and not for the rest of the JURORS. I guess that the rest of the JURORS found her interview not to be a “MAJORITY” outlook. Its not right for anyone to speak about this case as of yet. After all—-so much is going on, and people have not calmed down enough to really see FACTS for what they really are. Bottom line here—-TRAYVON was unfairly killed, and unfairly represented. He needed a stronger group of LAWYERS, who would hammer down on the actual results that took place, FEBRUARY 26, 2012. The DEFENSE really was able to get the “NOT GUILTY” for ZIMMERMAN, because nothing was really strong enough. To be honest with you——THIS CASE SHOULD OF BEEN “HUNG JURY”, in order to allow a RE-TRIAL, and maybe then things would of been different. WHO KNOWS!!!!!!
THE “SYG” LAW in FLORIDA, as I said before, needs to be removed off the books, and other states that have this same law, need to do the same. This law only seems to give a GUN CARRIER a right to use this weapon, and forget about anyone else. There truly isn’t any LOGIC, REASONING OR COMMON SENSE to this law, and its very frustrating to attempt to analize. Florida has problems and these problems are not being addressed!!!!!! As long as this is how things are there, we will most likely see more of the same as in the ZIMMERMAN CASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This makes me worry that INNOCENT lives will be taken, and nothing will be accomplished in a COURT OF LAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Especially when you commit this crime, and have access to getting what you truly don’t deserve—-like GEORGE ZIMMERMAN, getting walking papers.
He should be in prison and have MENTAL HEALTH check him out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He isn’t packaged to tightly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Or he may have just been innocent because he was attacked by a punk (yes, they can and often are minors) and beaten. Said Punk, could have just moved on, but he ambushed Zimmerman and while tragic, he got the surprise of his life. People who look for trouble, usually find it. The police cannot protect our neighborhoods, there are self defense shootings every night in some neighborhoods and people realize that those too are justifiable. There are no rallies, no outcry for justice for a bad decision by a bad person doing something bad! Why is that? Zimmerman’s life was examined under a microscope – and NO ONE ever repeated a single racist thing the guy ever said. Not true of me or you, or the guy waiting in line, or any rapper, or nearly every other person on the planet. Why can’t he just be innocent? Why don’t you acknowledge a punk with pot in his system, unintelligible tweets, and text messages (from his phone, that no one else every admitted they borrowed or used, but somehow aren’t his?) talking about getting a gun, and fighting, and several other things that show who this kid was (no, not who he may have/could have become – but definitely who he was)? Why can’t the evidence support an innocent verdict, for a case that should have never been brought? Trayvon may a bad decision, similar to the ones that got him suspended from school 3 times. Why can’t it just be that and maybe, just maybe other punks will just keep moving, rather than having the misguided impression that because they can beat someone up – they will? Why do you think guns were invented? They level the field against brute force…

   
SUSAN says:

TO FTANK—OR ERROR ON HIS PART—-NAME COULD BE “FRANK”—————-

I agree with you—–I believe the Judge may of included this “SYG”, only because FLORIDA has this on their books. Honestly—-I am in hopes that FLORIDA will open their eyes and start to remove this LAW from their books. This is a foolish law, giving people rights, and then, how does one finally find who in the world is WRONG??????
After all—-SYG, is a form of protection, yet, in the case of TRAYVON AND ZIMMERMAN, I believe that RIGHTS were OPEN for both!!!!!!! The problem became such, when ZIMMERMAN chose to use his GUN and MURDER TRAYVON. This where things got sticky. SYG from this case should protect both parties, yet, because of what JUDGE NELSON did, she made this more protective towards ZIMMERMAN!!!!!!! Just a note here—-did you know that JUDGE DEBRA NELSON is very, very close to MARK O’MARA????? MARK O’MARA is GODFATHER to one of DEBRA NELSON’S Children.
ODD—now things sort of fit. This case was given a “NOT GUILTY” from the start. JUDGE NELSON, and ZIMMRMAN’S FATHER made sure that ZIMMERMAN didn’t see the inside of a PRISON!!!!!!!!!! Think about this—–ZIMMRMAN’S FATHER had gotten his son out of many problems before this MURDER took place. Now over the news about 2 weeks ago, I herd ZIMMERMAN’S FATHER say—“THIS TIME HE WILL NOT GET HIS SON OUT OF THIS JAM”!!!!!!!!! Yet—-DADDY was seeing that his son could face PRISON, so what did DADDY do, he worked with the JUDGE and together they made sure that, ZIMMERMAN didn’t see the inside of a PRISON. I truly believe this is how the “NOT GUILTY” VERDICT came to be. In the CLOSING REMARKS on the DEFENSE SIDE, the camera was focused on ZIMMRMAN’S DADDY. His shifting eyes, and his relaxed manner, showed he was sure that ZIMMERMAN WOULD WALK. AND THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED. There are two (2) more trials coming, let’s see what happens there. You know the old saying—-“WHAT GOES AROUND—COMES AROUND”!!!!!!!!! ZIMMERMAN ISN’T OUT OF THE WOODS YET!!!!!!!!!!! ZIMMERMAN WILL NOT EVER, EVER BE ABLE TO WALK AMOUNG THE PUBLIC ANYMORE. THERE ARE TO MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO ARE NASTY AND FEEL THEY WERE NOT
GIVEN THEIR RIGHTS TO CLOSURE FROM THE “NOT GUILTY” VERDICT. I hope that people just begin to calm down, and start seeing that LIFE DOES GO ON, AND MEMORIES ARE WHAT YOU HAVE. LIFE DOESN’T GIVE 2 ROUNDS HERE, WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND—-WE CAN’T LET WRONG BECOME THE RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU…………………………

   
Ftank says:

I’m curious, According to an interview with one of the jurors, the judges jury instructions including allowing them to consider Stand Your Ground in their deliberations. But if the defense didn’t invoke SYG as any part of their defense, then didn’t Judge Nelson make a serious error in including it in her instructions to the jury. I mean, shit, why not instruct the jury that they could consider insanity?

   
SUSAN says:

I am making this my FINAL comment!!!!!!!! SHOCKED, DISAPPOINTED, AND FULLY DISGUSTED WITH FLORIDA, I have to say this as my FINAL WORDS. PEOPLE—–You truly don’t understand the meaning of “INNOCENT”!!!!!!!!! If anyone, (and I see quite a few by reading these comments here) has the idea that GEORGE ZIMMERMAN will be able to lead a “FREE LIFE”, YOU ALL BETTER THINK AGAIN!!!!!!! He will be living like CASEY ANTHONY is today!!!!!!!! Unable to walk in public, unable to sit in a Restaurant, and unable to move in public without being noticed and truly feeling his self—-STARRED AT AND STALKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When you have someone in a HIGH OFFICE, now retired, and can stop LOGIC, REASONING AND COMMON SENSE with a BUNCH OF MONEY——the results are exactly what happened with GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. GEORGE knew from the beginning of this trial, he would WALK!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have not ever seen someone sitting before their TRIAL on grounds of MURDER, and not be fearfull or showing some sort of expression of FEAR. GEORGE ZIMMERMAN HAD NOTHING ON HIS FACE, DIDN’T SHOW ANY KIND OF EMOTION, AND THIS finally made me believe he was sure what the outcome of this case would be. FAVORABLE TO HIMSELF!!!!!!!!!!! Now—GEORGE’S DADDY has gotten GEORGE off before on cases of wrong doing, but, according to the papers I read, GEORGE’S DADDY stated clearly he would not help his SON on this case!!!!!!!!!!! OH SURE—FOLKS IF THIS IS FACT—-PIGS FLY AND EVERYONE SHOULD CARRY UMBRELLAS WHEREVER THEY GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MONEY TALKS FOLKS!!!!!!!!!!!! ANYONE CAN GET OFF ANY HIGH CASE WITH MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If what I have said here isn’t FACT, then for sure FLORIDA needs to change their IDIOTIC laws, and start doing exactly what the CONSTITUTION OF OUR UNITED STATES OF AMERICA states!!!!!!!!!
I guess there will be another trial—–CIVIAL SHOULD NOW BE STARTED. MONEY WILL BE NEEDED FOR THIS CASE, AND HERE IS WHERE I BELIEVE GEORGE ZIMMERMAN WILL FINALLY SEE EXACTLY WHAT HE DID WAS NOT FAVORABLE TO HIMSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I ONLY HOPE AND PRAY THAT HE (GEORGE) FINALLY GETS EVERYTHING HE DESERVES!!!!!!!!!!! HE NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN YOU CHOOSE TO USE A WEAPON, YOU MUST UNDERSTAND COMPLETELY THAT YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR THE USAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just can’t believe that 6 women could muster a “NOT GUILTY” for this person who should be behind bars!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Maybe now he can meet with CASEY ANTHONY and they both can find a place to live without being fearfull of where and what they do.
I don’t have any SYMPATHY for GEORGE ZIMMERMAN, I do however, feel sorry for the family who has to put up with GEORGE and his SICK, INSANE MANNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GEORGE SHOULD SEEK MENTAL HELP!!!!!!!!!! HE TRULY NEEDS THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Meantime, I’ll be leaving this COMMENT SECTION, and hope that you folks will finally do some HOMEWORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sitting here and speaking out about certain manners others have in writing isn’t INTELLIGENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHO CARES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HEADACHES—–PLEASE—THIS IS A COMPUTER PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MY GOODNESS, WHAT IN THE WORLD DO ALL OF YOU DO ON A DAILY BASIS????? TEXT, SEND VOICE MAILS, TWEET AND TWITTER??????? WHEW—–WHAT A FULL DAY OF NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NEGATIVE FOLKS OUT THERE—-GET A LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THANK YOU’S TO THOSE WHO FEEL AS I DO, AND REMEMBER ONE THING, FLORIDA ISN’T WHERE YOU ALL WANT TO ENJOY A VACATION!!!!!!!! THINK ABOUT CALIFORNIA OR OREGON, SOMEPLACE WHERE BEAUTY IS EXACTLY THAT, BEAUTIFUL AND PEACEFULL!!!!!!!!!!! GOD BLESS EVERYONE………………..

Thank You!!!

   
SUSAN says:

TO MACKENZIE——-I CAN’T USE LOWER CASE, YOU WOULD NOT HAVE THE INTELLIGENCE TO READ IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! INSTEAD OF VOICING YOUR OPINION ON THE “CAPS” HERE—–WHY DON’T YOU STICK TO THE SUBJECT AND RESPOND TO WHAT I STATED?????

We now have the RESULTS!!!!!!! I have to admit—-FLORIDA HAS A PROBLEM WITH THEIR WATER!!!!!!!! How can anyone in their RIGHT MIND—-GIVE A “NOT GUILTY” VERDICT to someone who was chasing an INNOCENT young 17 year old?????? I sure am glad I don’t live in FLORIDA!!!!!!!! WHAT A SHAM!!!!!!!! My thoughts were truly set for a JURY of 6 WOMEN to give the right VERDICT, but, instead—–they gave a VERDICT that should not of been given!!!!!!!! Anyone who truly believes that GZ wasn’t the one who started this whole act, should really RUN—-NOT WALK, TO THE NEAREST MENTAL HEALTH OFFICE!!!!!!!!! I am now convinced that GEORGE ZIMMERMAN had the case all WRAPPED UP, with his DADDY making sure he didn’t see the inside of a JAIL OR PRISION!!!!!!!!!! The FATHER of GZ, IS A RETIRED JUDGE, WHO KNOWS THE COMPLETE CIRCUT!!!!!! I am sure the DADDY still has friends in LAW, plus, it would not take anything for GZ’S FATHER to make sure this case didn’t fall with a “GUILTY” VERDICT!!!!!! Maybe that answers the odd questions of why GEORGE didn’t act nerveous, or worried during the trial!!!!!! The DEFENSE LAWYERS were also “LAY-BACK” ATTITUDE, especially MARK O’MARA!!!!!!!! HE acted as if he were speaking to a group of people who came to hear him speak on the subject of “LAW”!!!!!!! This case was all tied up from the start. True—-THE STATE should of presented things stronger than they did, maybe showing pictures first of GZ, and stamping on facts that led up to the pictures. GZ is so GUILTY of this, that anyone who believes he is INNOCENT, needs to seek HELP!!!!!!! GZ did not have the LEGAL RIGHT to chase TRAYVON, nor did GZ have the RIGHT to KILL TRAYVON!!!!!!
The screams were TRAYVON’S, no matter what anyone says!!!!!! USE YOUR COMMON SENSE HERE!!!!!!!!! LOGIC, REASONING, AND COMMON SENSE are all necessary to see the FACTS!!!!!!!! When you ignore any or all three (3) of these areas, you are overlooking serious areas of this case. I BELIEVE—–“STAND YOUR GROUND”, should be removed from FLORIDA’S LAW BOOKS, and maybe then FACTS would enable HONEST RESULTS!!!!!!!!! ITS SHAMEFULL THAT GZ IS GOING TO WALK FREELY!!!!!!!!!!! IF ANYONE OUT THERE BELIEVES GZ WON’T TRY THIS AGAIN——WELL—-YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE “BRAIN DEAD” TO BELIEVE GZ WON’T DO THIS AGAIN. MAYBE NOT BEING PART OF “NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH”, BUT, HE WILL DO THIS AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW MANY TIMES WILL DADDY GET HIS “JACK-ASS” SON OFF FROM WRONG DOING????? READ GZ’S past record, you will see he has been arrested before, he has been involved in a “DOMESTIC” suit, with his x-wife, and the one he is married to now—-SHELLY, well she looks like she does exactly what GZ wants, so GZ is satisfied with being married to her. GZ is in charge of his WIFE, its as obivious as GEORGE ZIMMERMAN walking freely!!!!!!!!!!!
CASEY ANTHONY AND GEORGE ZIMMERMAN are two people who deserve more than ever to be behind bars!!!!!!! YET, ORLANDO, FLORIDA AND SANFORD, FLORIDA, have different laws, and different ideas!!!!!!! Very, Very disappointed in the JUDGE. JUDGE—DEBRA NELSON must of truly received a bunch of MONEY to make sure that GZ walked out of court without spending anytime behind bars!!!!!!!!! THIS CASE NEEDS TO BE VIEWED AND CERTAINLY REOPENED IF POSSIBLE. EVERYTHING THAT WAS ONE-SIDED BECAME THE PART OF THIS CASE THAT ALLOWED GEORGE ZIMMERMAN TO WALK FREELY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ALL YOU FLORIDA PEOPLE—–STAND BY, LOOK OUT FOR GEORGE ZIMMERMAN, HE WILL BE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER WAY TO KILL SOMEONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THANK YOU………………………………………………………………………………

P.S. MACKENZIE—–DOES THIS HELP YOU FROM RECEIVING A HEADACHE??????
DON’T WANT YOUR HEAD TO FALL OFF YOUR SHOULDERS!!!!!

   
SUSAN says:

I WOULD LIKE TO SINCERELY THANK “VONNIE” FOR YOUR KIND “THANK YOU’S”!!!!!!
IT IS NICE TO SEE SOMEONE OUT IN THIS COMMENT AREA, HAS THE INTELLIGENCE TO SEE FACTS FROM FICTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I SINCERELY THANK YOU…..

I needed to add something to my last comment. This pertains to the VERBAGE from GEORGE ZIMMERMAN’S OWN MOUTH, WHEN SPEAKING ABOUT TRAVON MARTIN.
GEORGE’S MOUTH WILL ALWAYS, ALWAYS GET HIM INTO TROUBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DID YOU PEOPLE KNOW THAT HE ADMITTED TO BEING “A.D.D.”?????? INTERESTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT PROVES ONCE AGAIN, HOW HIS STORY CHANGES, WHEN DESCRIBLING WHAT ACTUALLY TOOK PLACE ON FEBRUARY 26, 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IT ALSO CAN HAVE ALOT TO DO WITH HIM NOT ACHIEVING BEING A OFFICER OF THE LAW!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERY LITTLE THING IN THIS HUGE CASE, NEEDS UNDIVIDED ATTENTION, AND THIS COULD VERY POSSIBLY BE THE REASON FOR THE JURY TAKING THE TIME THEY HAVE TO COME TO A VERDICT!!!!!!!!! BRAVO TO THIS JURY!!!!!!!!!!! I HOPE THE JURY COMES BACK WITH A VERDICT THAT WILL ENABLE GEROGE ZIMMERMAN TO SPEND TIME BEHIND BARS!!!!!!!!! MAYBE HE WILL THEN LEARN SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!! AT LEAST——-ONE CAN ONLY HOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BECAUSE HE HAS A FATHER WHO IS A RETIRED JUDGE—-DOES NOT GIVE GEORGE ZIMMERMAN THE PASS FOR BEING “INNOCENT”!!!!!!!!! FAR FROM THE TRUTH HERE. GEORGE LOST EVERYTHING WHEN HE TOOK HIS GUN OUT AND CHOSE TO FIRE IT AT TRAVON MARTIN!!!!!!!!!!! YOU CAN’T PLAY WITH FIRE, WITHOUT HAVING TO REALIZE YOU CAN GET BURNED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THE PROBLEM HERE IS—–PEOPLE TAKE ONLY PIECES OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, AND REPLY ON THOSE PARTS, WITHOUT EVEN LISTENING OR READING THE ENTIRE STATEMENT. WHEN ONE CHOOSES THIS AVENUE—-CERTAINLY THEY CAN CLAIM ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING!!!!!!!! FACTS ARE EXACTLY WHAT IS NECESSARY TO SPEAK ON ANY GIVEN SUBJECT!!!!!!!!!! REMEMBER SOMETHING—–WHEN YOU CHOOSE TO WRITE ANYTHING, YOU MUST HAVE FACTS TO BACK UP WHAT YOU STATE. NO ONE PERSON HAS THE RIGHT TO MAKE ANYTHING THEY WANT OUT OF ANY SUBJECT. THIS ONLY LEADS TO GOSSIP AND TRULY FIRING UP PEOPLE WHO ARE READY TO BOUNCE ON ANYTHING NEGATIVE!!!!!!!!!!! KEEP AN OPEN MIND AND REMEMBER TO CHECK EVERYTHING OUT FIRST!!!!!!!!!!! ONCE YOU ACHIEVE THIS, CERTAINLY YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE A MORE FACTUAL PICTURE, AND MAYBE, JUST MAYBE REALIZE HOW TERRIBLY WRONG YOU WERE.
THANK YOU……………………………………………………

Pink Dazzies says:

NOT GUILTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
FINALLY WE GOT THIS ONE RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SLEEP WELL TONIGHT WITH YOUR FAMILY GZ, YOU SO DESERVE TO GET SOME PEACE AND LET EVERYONE GET OVER IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GET OVER IT , AND ALL THE “NOT RACIAL ” BLACK PPL, SHAME ON ALL OF YOU PRETENDING TO NOT BE A RACIST AND TALK THE WAY THAT YOU ALL DO, CALLING WHITE PPL CRACKERS AND MORE, SHAME ON YOU ALL.

   
mackenzie says:

Yup! Cracker is a Racist Comment/ word towards Whites/Caucasians! And it Does Not Mean the Person that Whips Slaves back in the day…….it means White/Caucasian people( or ones that look white/Caucasian), that Look Like A SALTINE CRACKER!!! Duh! Cracker came from the saltine crackers, do not try to make it a different name, it is RACIST!!!! Like it or Not! We All are Done! PERIOD!

   
Bonnie says:

Did you listen to George Zimmerman’s and Jenna Lauer’s 911 call? He was not alone the night Trayvon Martin was killed. In Jenna Lauer’s 911 call, you can hear someone say “he warned me he would shoot him, and “why kill. If someone is saying why kill him, then that means to GZ could not have been getting his butt beat the he claims Trayvon Martin did. In his 911 call you can hear him say to someone “shit give me your light, and “the keys are in my truck. The truth will come out.

   
Pink Dazzies says:

NOT GUILTY NOT GUILTY…………..

   
mackenzie says:

THANK YOU!

George was assaulted!!!! Period! George had to use his gun, period! Sad, but horrible true! Facts do show this!

   
Noreen says:

Facts show George should have stayed in his car, waited for Police. He was wrong from the get go. They used to be called “trigger happy”. He does as he pleases.

   
SUSAN says:

TO THE PERSON WHO ACCUSES ME OF BEING IN THE “TREES”, PLEASE—-YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE SAYING!!!!!!!!!!!! THE MEANING BEHIND—-“YOU CAN’T SEE THE FOREST FROM THE TREES”, IS THIS: ONE IS BLINDED TO SEEING ALL ASPECTS OF SOMETHING, THEREFORE, WHEN LOOKING AROUND THEM, THEY DON’T SEE WHAT IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM!!!!!!!!! NOW DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE STATEMENT?????? WHEW—-I SURE HOPE SO!!!!!!!! SENDING SARCASTIC REPLY’S ISN’T “INTELLIGENT”!!!!!!!!!!! IT JUST SHOWS EXACTLY HOW TRULY YOU LACK IN “INTELLIGENCE”!!!!!!!!!!!

TRAVON MARTIN IS THE “INNOCENT” PERSON HERE!!!!!!! WHAT MUST SOMEONE DO TO MOST OF YOU EXPRESSING YOUR VIEWS, IN A “NEGATIVE” MANNER??????
WHY CAN’T YOU UNDERSTAND THAT TRAVON MARTIN WAS NOT IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM LOOKING FOR TROUBLE ON FEBRUARY 26, 2013!!!!!!! CAN’T SOMEONE GO TO A STORE, AND RETURN BACK TO WHERE THEY WERE, WITHOUT ANOTHER PERSON WANTING TO CAUSE HARM????? WHY MUST PEOPLE THINK THEY CAN DO AS THEY PLEASE, AND NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR THE WRONG DOING THEY COMMIT????? GEORGE ZIMMERMAN SHOULD NOT OF STOPPED, NOR SHOULD HE OF HAD A LOADED GUN IN HIS POSSESION. I’LL NOT EVER ACCEPT THIS LAW—-INSANE LAW—-“STAND YOUR GROUND”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ISN’T THIS 2013?????? WHY SHOULD WE HAVE TO RETURN TO THE 1800’S?????? PLEASE, I THOUGHT WE HAVE MOVED ON WITH MAKING THINGS BETTER FOR EVERYONE.
OH—-OOPS—–I FORGOT THE IDIOTS WHO REFUSE TO CONFORM TO LAWS, AND TRULY WANT TO CHANGE OUR STANDARDS OF LIVING FOR THEIR CONVIENCE.
ITS TRULY SAD WHEN SOMEONE CAN’T REALIZE FACTS FROM STUPIDITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TRAVON MARTIN WILL NOT EVER MATURE INTO A UP-STANDING MAN, NOR WILL HE EVER SEE HAVING HIS OWN FAMILY. TRAVON MARTIN’S PARENTS WILL NOT BE WATCHING THEIR SON MARRY, HAVE CHILDREN AND MATURE INTO A SENIOR CITIZEN. WHY????? BECAUSE SOME SICK, DERRANGED FOOL, WANTED TO KILL TRAVON????? WHO DOES GEORGE ZIMMERMAN THINK HE IS????? HE ISN’T A POLICE OFFICER, COULD NOT BE ONE IF HE TRIED, AND HE ISN’T “GOD”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TO HAVE A WEAPON ON HIMSELF, AND KNOW THAT HE CAN USE IT, TRULY DOES NOT PROVE GEORGE ZIMMERMAN WAS FEARFULL OF HIS LIFE!!!!!!!!! GEORGE HAD THE ADVANTAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO—-LISTENING TO THE SCREAMS OF A PERSON IN A 911 CALL TO POLICE, ONLY MAKES MY HEART SAD. THESE SCREAMS WERE TRAVON MARTIN, YELLING FOR HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!! AS I STATED BEFORE, YOU CAN MIX THIS UP, DISTORT THIS AND EVEN MAKE THINGS UP THAT DON’T EXIST. ALL ONE HAS TO DO, IS LISTEN!!!!!!!!! LISTEN TO THE TAPES AND LISTEN TO THE SCREAMING. THIS IS NOT ANYONE WHO WOULD SCREAM, HAVING A GUN IN ONE’S POSSESION. SORRY—-LOGIC HERE TELLS ME THAT GEORGE ZIMMERMAN WAS POINTING THE GUN AT TRAVON, AND THIS CAUSED TRAVON TO SCREAM, ONLY HOPING SOMEONE WOULD COME TO HIS AID!!!!!!!!!!! THE POLICE SHOULD OF GOTTEN THERE IN SECONDS!!!!!!! THIS ALSO DIDN’T HAPPEN. THE POLICE ARRIVED AFTER GEORGE KILLED TRAVON!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAD THE POLICE ARRIVED SOONER, MAYBE THE SITUATION WOULD OF BEEN DIFFERENT. WHO KNOWS!!!!!!!!
I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT TRAVON MARTIN WAS INNOCENT, AND GEORGE ZIMMERMAN IS STILL—-GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY GUILTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ONE CAN’T ASSUME HERE——-WHY, SOMEONE MIGHT ASK—–BECAUSE IT WOULD ONLY MAKE A TRUE ASS OF ONE’S SELF TO EVEN THINK OF “ASSUMING”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I HOPE AND PRAY THAT GEORGE ZIMMERMAN FINDS THE STEEL DOORS OF PRISION HIS HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE MARTIN FAMILY DESERVE “JUSTICE”, AND THEY SHOULD RECEIVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOD BLESS THE MARTIN FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU………………………………………………………..

   
Janice says:

To Concerned Parent: I looked it up in the law dictionary for those of you speculating and a child is under 14 years of age. Trayvon was almost an adult (age 18). He could go to war and join the military At age 18 & would be considered an adult.

   
Vonnie says:

BUT HE WAS NOT 18 PEOPLE. HE WAS FREAKIN 17 YEARS OLD. A FREAKIN CHILD. I DONT CARE WHAT YOU LOOK UP AND WHAT U FREAKING FIND. HE IS CHILD STILL IN HIGH SCHOOL!!!!!!

   
SUSAN says:

I was writing a comment, and this computer of mine, took me right out of this area.
So, I hope that nothing was sent. I’ll try to start over. As I have been reading these comments from folks, I am so taken away by the amount of people who are siding with GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. WHY???? Don’t you understand that GEORGE ZIMMERMAN is the “GUILTY PARTY” HERE????? COME ON PEOPLE WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!
GEORGE ZIMMERMAN chose to stop his automobile, look in the direction of TRAVON MARTIN, actually STARRING AT TRAVON, Which after a while, would cause anyone to finally ask any type of question!!!!!! Haven’t any of you had someone look at you, and not stop for a few seconds????? George Zimmerman refused to continue on his way, but, rather chose to make sure that he got this person!!!!!! When POLICE DISPATCH asked GZ if he is FOLLOWING TRAVON—-actual words were—“ARE YOU FOLLOWING HIM”???? GZ replied—-“YES”!!!!!!!! “DISPATCH REPLIED—“OH YOU DON’T WANT TO DO THAT”!!!!!! GZ SAID—-“OK”!!!!!!! DID HE STOP RIGHT THEN???? NO—-HE CONTINUED ON, REFUSING TO ACKNOWLEDGE WHAT HE WAS JUST TOLD NOT TO DO, AND THEN SAID—-“OH—SHIT”, HE’S RUNNING”!!!!
THIS WAS ON TAPE—–911—NON EMERGENCY CALL, AND THEN, HE USED THE WORST POSSIBLE LANGUAGE TO SAY OUTLOUD EXACTLY WHAT HIS SOUL WAS SAYING!!!!!!! NOW—IS THIS A PERSON WHO IS “SCARED, SHY, OR EVEN USING COMMON SENSE”??????? GZ did not care what the DISPATCH told him, did not care about going to the “TARGET” for his sandwiches, but, chose to continue to stalk, and follow TRAVON MARTIN. TRAVON DIDN’T DO WHAT MAYBE HE SHOULD OF DONE, WE CAN SAY——TRAVON—COULD OF, WOULD OF, SHOULD OF ALL WE WANT, BUT, THAT DIDN’T HAPPEN. WE CAN EVEN SAY—-AS I THOUGHT, WHY IN THE WORLD, DIDN’T TRAVON DISCONNECT FROM HIS FRIEND, AND CALL HIS DAD ON THE PHONE. I AM SURE HIS DAD WOULD OF BEEN IN HIS AREA IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!! THIS IS NOT WHAT TRAVON DID. I DON’T CARE IF TRAVON WAS STANDING ON GEORGE’S HEAD!!!!!!! THEY BOTH WERE FIGHTING—–BUT, THAT DOES NOT GIVE GZ THE RIGHT TO GET HIS LOADED GUN OUT AND SHOOT TRAVON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHEN GEORGE DID THIS, HE THEN BECAME A “MURDERER”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HE NOW MUST FACE THE MUSIC, AND HAVE TO PAY FOR HIS WRONG DOINGS!!!!!! WHY SHOULD GZ GET AWAY WITH MURDER???
I KEEP SAYING—-THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE WATER IN FLORIDA!!!!!!!! FIRST CASEY GET’S AWAY WITH MURDERING HER BABY, NOW GZ SHOULD GET AWAY WITH MURDERING A 17 YEAR OLD CHILD????? YES, YES EVERYONE—-TRAVON MARTIN WAS A CHILD!!!!!!!! GZ IS 28 YEARS OLD!!!!!!!!!!!!
GZ SHOULD HAVE MORE INTELLIGENCE THAN SHE CARRIES!!!!!!! REMEMBER THIS OLD SAYING—–WHEN ONE PLAYS—-ONE PAYS!!!!!!!!!! GZ’S FATHER IS A RETIRED JUDGE????? BIG DEAL—-GZ DOESN’T GET EXCUSED BECAUSE HIS DADDY IS A RETIRED JUDGE!!!!!!! THIS ISN’T A ONE-SIDED CASE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!
“CONCERNED PARENT”—–I APPLAUD YOU FOR SAYING EXACTLY THE FACTS!!!!!
YOU SEEM TO BE THE ONLY ONE HERE WHO TRULY SEE’S THIS FOR EXACTLY WHAT IT IS!!!!!! “MURDER”—–NOTHING ELSE PEOPLE—-PLAIN MURDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I JUST HOPE THAT SOME OF YOU WHO ARE REPLYING HERE, TRULY WAKE UP AND LOOK AROUND YOU. WHEN YOU CAN’T SEE PAST YOUR OWN NOSE, THEN YOU TRULY HAVE A PROBLEM. ALSO—-BEING CLOSED MINDED DOESN’T HELP EITHER. ONE HAS TO OPEN UP ONE’S MIND, AND SEE THINGS FROM BOTH SIDES. NO MATTER HOW YOU TWIST, DISTORT, OR EVEN RE-ARRANGE THIS WHOLE TRIAL, GEORGE ZIMMERMAN IS GULTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY!!!!!!!!!!!
ALL CAPS HERE—IS NECESSARY, WHEN ONE HAS TO DEAL WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE TO BLIND TO SEE THE “FOREST FROM THE TREES”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THANK YOU…………………………………………………..

   
Vonnie says:

OMG everything you just said, I bow to you. THANK YOU>>>THANK YOU>>>>THANK YOU!!!!!! People need to wake up and see things for what they are. I am a parent and I think I would have died thru all that is going on. People this is nt a race things, this is a case of a grown adult man not listening to what he is told by police and taking it in his own hand and killing a FREAKIN CHILD! A CHLD PEOPLE!! A CHILD!! What part of this do you not understand. I bet none of the people that are siding w GZ, can go to Trayvon parents and say that GZ is innocent. SMDH. Just think, what if it was your child that got shot ? Think on that people that are siding w GZ!!!!! Remember that if he gets off, and is really not off the hook, bc he will go thru his life in hell and then he will have to answer to GOD!!!! God Bless Trayvon Martin and prayers to the family?

@MsUNDERWOOD, I feel your question is loaded but i’ll play along. The way you speak sounds a lot like how I talk and think. You sound like a rational person and I choose to think by your tone that you are not white or of European descent but of what ethnicity you are, I cannot say. I will say that you make since and are looking at facts of/and reality. So, what is the correct answer? Please respond to me.

msUNDERWOOD says:

OK…SO TM WAS KNOWN FOR HAVING MARIJUANA…DOES THIS CONSTITUTE A THUG THESE DAYS …REAAAAAAALLLYY. I’D HATE FORM MOST OF YOUR COLLEGES TO MEET YOUR HIGH SCHOOL OR COLLEGE BUDDIES!!……WHAT WOULD WE FIND…THERE IS NOT ONE OF YOU WHO CAN GOD HONESTLY SAY YOU NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT, ATTEMPTED OR SUCCEEDED IN EXPERIMENTING WITH MARIJUANA…AT BEST!!! SO IS IT SAFE TO SAY THAT HE WAS A THUG FOR THAT? WELL BY ALL MEANS KILL US ALL THEN.

   
   
DA says:

Scared 17 year old child? I don’t think so. Why is it that media keeps showing his pictures when he was 12? Because his recent pictures show his character. He was a wanna be thug. Why should the truth be hidden to avoid pain to the parents when all it does is support the lie and allows for denial. Wait till you see the riots from his peers when the jury comes back with the truth. This is all because of the racial fear mongering and the misrepresentations by ABC in the beginning. If the truth was revealed early on this would not be an issue. What I’m really concerned about is when someone is legally in their rights to use deadly force they will hesitate because of the fear of wrongfull prosecution. Self defense is self defense and we shouldn’t be afraid to defend ourselves with a gun or anything else. Thugs will think twice before assaulting us law abiding citizens if they think we may be packing.

   
Ramcam6 says:

so Emeraldeyes If there wasn’t a fight how did GZ get a broken, swollen nose, cut lip, his head beat on the sidewalk? I suppose he did that to himself. If you know so much about what happened why weren’t you called as a witness? Oh, you’re just assuming what you wish would have happened. Why did the prosecution hide all the text messages and if TM isn’t the racist why does he have nigga in his tweet handle?

   
Soulja says:

He hit himself in the face with his gun.

   
Ramcam6 says:

The picture of the protesters has an explanation below that claims “millions”. That is a gross exaggeration. There were not millions of protesters. Why lie about it?

   
Ramcam6 says:

Why doesn’t the judge ask this loudmouth to “lower his voice” like she did to defense attorney Clark? Why did the investigators take Jeantel to the mother of the victim and
interview her sitting next to Trayvon’s mother? That should have been illegal and brought up in the trial.

   
Sarah says:

Without knowing who actually threw the first punch it is really hard to say who started what. There are plenty of opportunities that we can say and it would not change what has happened. You cannot go back in time now. The fact is GZ should not have gotten out of his vehicle, even with a dispatcher asking which way is he going, does not mean you have to get out and follow, ou tell them based on what you see and the direction they went off in. I think he felt more confident with a gun on him that he could handle if something did go wrong. TM should not have hid, or stuck around or whatever he did to help cause an exchange between the two of them. We are talking about a 16 or 17 year old kid though, he was probably scared not knowing who was out there following him, in the dark and rain, in a place he was not really from. With the number of people witnessing the actual fight though and GZ himself knowing cops were on the way, should not have felt the need to kill this kid. Do I think he will be found guilty of murder 2, no. But he should pay for taking someone’s life, because he help create this situation by getting out of the vehicle and following this kid. Aggravated assault under manslaughter is an option, but I think we need to hear what the jury instructions will be. The Stand Your Ground Law is ridiculous, and needs to be evaluated. There is no way a law should allow you to get into a situation were you confront someone and then when you cannot hold your own in the fight and choose to kill someone that it is self defense. Those that start altercations need to be held responsible for their actions.

   
hogfan264 says:

TM is on top but pulling away??? Why did they change their story?

   
hogfan264 says:

Funny too that the prosecution’s whole case has been based on TM was on the but now that the truth has come out tm

   
hogfan264 says:

Just curious. ..Ben Crump was sequestered yet on piers morgan stated tonight that he was watching clips to stay on top of what was happening. Wasnt he supposed to adhear to the sequestration?

   
DA says:

I keep hearing all this noise about GZ following. Listen to the 911 call. He didn’t get out of the truck until 911 asked him where TM was running to. TM was out of sight at that time and GZ went to answer the question. When 911 heard the wind he told him not to follow then asked GZ where he wante dthe police to meet him. By this time he was behind the buildings and couldn’t see an address so he attempted to describe where his truck was parked and went to his street to get a house address to give the police so they could see where TM ran too. While walking back to his truck TM cam from between the buildings out of the dark and confronted GZ. Why didn’t TM just go to where he was staying further away from GZ when he saw GZ walking back to his truck? Instead he wanted to be the big Gangsta and beat down a white guy. Those types of people should know that those they attack may have a gun and they then they may be a little concerned about attacking anyone.

   
AB says:

100% agree with you, people are know listening to the voice recording. People are jumping to race more then what the truth is. It is sad that a Teen died we all know that, but don’t bring race or anything else. Zimmerman was not hunting for the teen, TV had plenty of time to go home instead of waiting around. I really hope Zimmerman does get off!

   
Maria says:

A fight that would have ended with GZ in the hospital with a broken nose and black eyes ended up with a corpse because coward GZ chose to use his gun instead of fighting like a man.

   
Maria says:

If TM had fought MMA style prior to Feb. 26th. and did not kill his opponent, then GZ IS LYING ABOUT HIS LIFE BEING IN DANGER. He shot the kid because he was losing a trivial fight, NOT BECAUSE HIS LIFE WAS IN DANGER. Case closed.

   
Michael Benson says:

This is a sad case. Trayvon Martin made a very crucial mistake to attack someone — a person who had not broken any law that exists — who just so happened to carry a tool for self-defense; a tool that the victim used to neutralize Trayvon Martin’s attack.

It’s sad that Trayvon was raised in a family/community that taught him that it was okay to assault and batter people. Had he been afforded a better upbringing, this unfortunate situation would have never happened.

   
Nancy Delorme says:

If Mr Zimmerman had listened to the police who stated to Mr Zimmerman NOT to continue his chase on Mr Trayvon Martin.. then we would NOT be in court today about the senseless killing. Mr Zimmerman is and was in the wrong. Jail time for sure. Mow back to the case..

   
George says:

What do you mean better up bringing? He was minding his business GZ followed him. Both his parents are non-criminals, with respectable careers and not welfare junkies like every right wing Romney voting racist nut job is claiming. GZ stalked TM. GZ shot TM but you claim it’s TM fault because he was minding his own business. If you were being stalked at night, in the rain, when you’re by yourself, and you see the person who was stalking you run after you, are you going to stop and say: “hello suspectious unidentified stalker. We are all alone in the dark. I know you observed me and chased me in the rain but, How may I assist you?” :-| GZ should have never followed him like the 911 operator (and the neighborhood watch organizer) told him. GZ should have identified himself as a non-threat (“I’m with neighborhood watch who are you?”), and the threat/ revealing you have a gun is more than enough to stop majority of all UNARMED people from attacking….(if it was self defense). TM was stalked and followed. When does he have the right to defend himself??????

   
DRex says:

There is no evidence that T attacked Z. You’re simply taking the word of Z, who benefits if that story is believed.

   
Earl.m Howard says:

Mickey Mouse court black man doing this would probably been shot on site!

   
Earl.m Howard says:

Continuity following a person u don’t know at night , that’s threatened enough to run from you is foolish ! honestly think about that, no one in their right mind think s otherwise.

   
julia_h says:

TM Became aggressive during his phone calls to RACHEL. I can see a young adult getting cocky and becoming aggressive which I feel he did. In my opinion when GZ asked why he was in the area TM just started swinging instead of simply answering the question. At that time it become a stand your ground case. I live in a HOA which has had many homes broke into in the last few months we have the same sign and we all watch out for each other…..sad but this is the world we live in today……

   
parkside says:

Are you allowed to carry while on patrol? Do you confront, or report and let the cops handle it? And do you know the names off the streets you patrol?

   
Earl.m Howard says:

That’s right plus Zimmerman never identified himself as a representative of the neighborhood watch. T Martin was clearly very threatened he was simply trying to remove himself from the situation , by running away, Zimmerman tried to restrain Martin This was the illegal act committed. Of course he’s not going to admit to it he knows that would sink him. So we are to believe this scared kid just attacked a grown man for no reason? Some people! He’s going to get of but not away with what he did.

   
Ed13l4 says:

GZ stated he was not on patrol, but going to Target. Perfectly in his right to carry, & saw suspicious person. He was not on duty, and no one I’ve heard accused him of carrying while on duty. But as should be the case, if you are neighborhood watch OR member of the community you should be vigil of your community.

   
julia_h says:

TM never gave VS the chance to explain why he was being followed. He turned on Zimmerman in a confrontational way and started hitting him…the pictures tell the story look at TM body he was on on top hitting VS he turned into being the aggressor at that time….a picture is worth a thousand words PEROID

   
Tiffany says:

Please if Zimmerman wouldn’t have followed him there would be no confrontation.. Let police handle suspicious people. The duty as neighborhood watch is to report not act as the police and confront.

   
DRex says:

Julia H. How do you know that T didn’t ask Z why he was following him? You have only one side of the story.

   
LoveBunny says:

Rachel is not very articulate, perhaps somewhat immature and not 100% honest.
BUT she is quite young and obviously in a very uncomfortable position. Clearly she feels conflicted. . .

C’mon people, give poor Rachel a break. This CANT be easy!
She has to see her friends killer sitting right there in front of her while she gets grilled.

   
Debbie says:

They need to read Trayon’s autopsy report Zimmerman stated he was going to Target well the autopsy says something different page 13 the second paragraph states Zimmerman says he was doing neighborhood watch and that Trayon did not belong there. The week before he called non emergency number because a young black male was sitting outside in a hoodie and pj pants smoking a cigarette. Zimmerman from the majority of the calls he have made have been about young black males whom lived out there in the community I believe he had a dislike for young black males racist yes racial profiler yes

   
Jennifer Guinn says:

Exactly. If it was my mug to give away, you would win it! It is even obvious from the underhanded way his lawyers are approaching the case, bullying and using only selected parts of prior taped depositions to try to make Rachel look like a liar, that they are trying to be tricky and pull off some Creepy ass cracker shit. Old jerk trying to use big words when simpler words would work to once again trying to make a teenager to whom English is a third language look inferior. Wonder how many languages he knows…

   
Emeraldeyes says:

Excellent points – Rachel may be unsophisticated and an introvert but she is no one’s fool! She had those lawyers scurrying everywhere trying to figure out how to counter her statement that she never said “You want that too?” and then pointed out to West, “I never said that those are your opinions!” Rachel is logical, sequential and candid – a lot of bloggers put it down to ignorance but that is not the case. She is very good at masking her pain – she cared for Treyvon a lot, he was a sensitive boy who never made fun of her and accepted her friendship and she loved him for that. She knew everything that happened and when and West couldn’t break her. And I say, she may have won the day and justice for Treyvon! The comments from bloggers have been very cruel.

   
julia_h says:

I can have my opinion my. neice was shot and killed for being in the wrong place at the wrong time by a African male…she was only 21and her boyfriend was African-American, he was killed too. And all because they were dating….his friend did it so racism still exists everywhere. There was one article in the paper please….it’s not just one sided……

   
dewe says:

i think the problem is the gun…any fight their a winner and a loser.. do we all think the one that lost have the right to bring out a gun and shoot the winner…

   
emeraldeyes says:

There was NO fight Dewe, GZ tracked and stalked Trayvon and when he caught Treyvon he murdered him. End of story. Treyvon confronted him, yes because he knew he’d been following him for no reason. But the only one to throw punches was Zimmerman. That came out in the trial through several prosecution witnesses.

   
julia_h says:

I can have my opinion my. neice was shot and killed for being in the wrong place at the wrong time by a African male…she was only 21 and it didn`t happen in Florida. FaThers was one article in the paper please….

   
Kit says:

You can’t just go approaching people you deem suspicious and that is what G.Zimmerman did.Dispatch had already told him not to approach this child,did he listen-NO!People have the right to walk to a store and back home without some nutcase approaching him or her.This was a bad move on Zimmermans’ part and now he has to pay the piper.In this case things just don’t add up,Zimmerman is a LIAR!

   
Jim says:

At first I thought Zimmerman might be in trouble, but from what I have seem from these witnesses, Zimmerman will walk. The last witnesses today seem some what slow or retarded. They all have lied and are just making up stuff, Fame and money that is what this trial is all about. A Raciest Killer? ridiculous. Blacks always play that card. What about the president of the school board from up north gets on TV and tells every one that the reason the kids are stupid in her district is because of the rich fat whiteys, she should have been fired on the spot, but No she is black. It is time we say what we wanton both sides with out the wite folks getting into trouble while the blacks get away with it.

   
Truthseeker333 says:

“Star” witness….???? lmao.

   
Truthseeker333 says:

Surdyka is just trying to get some attention. She clearly has bias and subjective for TM and Family. She was a worthless witness to the prosecution.

   
fireitup says:

This witness is a middle aged,drama seeker. Her call lasted longer than the opening arguments. A nervous nelly that craves attention and protests when she gets it. Loser and limelight seeker. My comments will be verified when we see her baloney in People, US,or any other tabloid rag.

   
julia_h says:

Jeantel has lied about her name, Racial slurs and her story is very inconsistent…. not a good witness for prosecution. She is doing more harm then good. If you tell the truth from the beginning your story would not change…..

   
Donna M. says:

Glad to see I’m not the only one that feels that way about this witness. I started getting a little weary about her testimony when she said she heard 3 shots, (a couple of times) even repeating it AFTER she heard the recording of her 911 call where she told the guy it was one shot. She also told him she was watching TV, and DID say she could open the window. Sounds to me like she’s a little confused and might be looking for some attention. I do believe she was upset on the 911 call.

   
hillbilleter says:

I can’t help but think of the instructions we give our children about being followed by strange men where there are no people. Try to get to a populated area. If you can’t, make a lot of noise and draw attention. DO NOT go quietly! Trayvon has had to have had those thoughts going through his mind as he was followed in the dark by a strange man who never spoke to him but stayed on his trail as he tried to get safely home. I know that my husband would never follow a teen in the dark for this very reason – we raised a son, told him these instructions, & don’t want to frighten someone else’s child. If Zimmerman ever has a son, I hope he remembers these instructions too.

   
Cyndi says:

Yes, I hope GZ does have a son, someday. If GZ gets away with this, EVERYBODY better make sure your children (any color, piercings, hair color/style) are INSIDE after dark, or they will be apt to be hunted….by anyone. This is The Hunger Games….yet!

   
Cyndi says:

This IS NOT the Hunger Games, yet….I meant!

   
Truthseeker333 says:

it is a shame that due to all of the racial tension that the media and Mr. Crump have stirred up, that we will not ever really know if G. Zim gets a fair trial. Either he gets off b/c we can’t trust a darn thing the prosecution or state’s witnesses say, or he is found guilty…either way, I hope Mr. Crump is enjoying the attention and $$$ he is exploiting from the Martin family, who clearly just want justice for their departed son. Maybe they will see that as this plays out.

   
JustSayIn says:

Its a Trial….the judge controls to court room…its as fair as its going to be…..and stop the BS we all know life is not fair…………We know Trayvon was not treated fairly. Gun Vs. soda can

   
Linda says:

Who is to say that Trayvon attacked in the first place, except George? Maybe George pushed or grabbed Travon, and then he hit George. We will never know, except for the words of GZ. There was at least one detective that said George’s statements didn’t add up to him. Then they got him off the case. It is a sad day in America when a person 17 years old can’t go to the store and come back without getting shot. A hoodie…seriously, it was raining! So sad a young man had to loose his life because somebody chose to play cop instead of being the concerned civilian and following what the dispatcher told him to do.

   
unbelieveable says:

SO GLAD MOST OF YOU ARE NOT ON THE JURY…..TO HAVE SO MANY NEGATIVE COMMENTS FOR EITHER SIDE WITHOUT HEARING ALL THE FACTS???SHAME ON YOU ! WATCH THE TRIAL, LISTEN TO ALL THE EVIDENCE,, AND MAYBE THEN YOU MAY CONCLUDE UNBIASED, WHAT OCCURRED THAT SAD EVENING…

   
Christy Ellen (@Christy_44) says:

WoW, so much Hatred, Bias and, Racism here. Very disappointed in people. You ARE entitled to an opinion but, Not if you’re going to “go on the attack” of other’s opinions. No wonder we have so many problems in this world !!
“Rasism & Profiling NEED to stop or Society will Never fully learn how to live side by side in a Diverse world.”
I’m saddened by Most of this Hatred.

Throwing Around Hatred Never Solves Anything !

   
Wakeup says:

Missy you sound incredibly ignorant and bigoted! All you seem to focus on is his height, and the fact that he had tattoos and a record. According to you that’s a good enough reason to be shot and killed? What is wrong with you? Did you actually see where the shooting took place? It wasn’t even on the street, TM had turned down a pathway that went between the buildings to his uncles apartment. GZ followed him needlessly and confronted him, treyvon was clearly defending himself from this idiot who was scaring the crap out if him. I would have been ready to fight as well. See how you feel when someone is following you down a dark alley.

   
Warren Garrett says:

You are right about Martin being ready to fight… but if he was aware of, afraid of, and concerned with an unknown person following him, why didn’t he just call police 911..??? Zimmerman had already called police 911, as other citizens would ultimately do… if Martin would just made the police 911 call, he would of been told “the police are aware and on the way” … seems like Martin wanted the confrontation that he got that night.. doesn’t matter what happens to Zimmerman, Martin will still be just as dead …

   
Christy Ellen (@Christy_44) says:

Couldn’t agree more. This case is about #FACTS as are all trials.
Good for you for “bringing this issue back to earth”

   
Nevaeh says:

I see they muted the LIVE STREAM for over 20 minutes straight, smh!

   
Nevaeh says:

“The Boy’s” name is Trayvon Martin! And God will make sure Justice is continuously served! That hog GZ look sick as a devil!

   
Warren Garrett says:

Just why didn’t Travon Martin call
the Police 911 if he was afraid of being followed as he claims he was ..???

   
Nevaeh says:

You try calling racist police officers when you already have a so called lying watch guard trying to hurt you when he’s supposed to PROTECT you! Idiot!

   
Gayle says:

Wow Nevaeh, racist much yourself? And you would know that the cops are racist how? simply because they did not arrest GZ at the beginning?
First off, a dispatcher is NOT a police officer, Trayvon is not a “child” he was buying the ingredients to make Lean… not an innocent young man buying candy. So you want me to believe out of the goodness of his young innocent heart, during a rain storm, he says.. you know i am going to walk a mile to and fro to get my dads girlfriends son some skittles..Hardly.
Its clear that what happened was innocent little trayvon was walking looking suspicious, as he was most likely smoking a blunt purchased for him from the ones that walked in the store right after him while he waited outside.
GZ was a concerened citizen with a lawful right to carry a firearm and was following Trayvon to make certain that he wasnt up to any good. The dispatcher is NOT an officer and can advise you as a citizen, but not order you to stop.. He followed and then was on his way back to his vehicle when Trayvon obviously approached him with attitude and punched GZ who fell, Trayvon started bashing GZs head into the pavement and GZ SCREAMED for help.. Trayvon wouldnt.. he was in charge at the time.
GZ to defend himself from this beating reached for his gun and it went off.
NO Trayvon did not deserve to die, no one does, but GZ is not guilty of murder. involuntary manslaugther at most. there was no premediation to kill..
Please take your hate and racism to another world. We are sick of it.
HOWEVEr, you will win. GZ will be found guilty, and it will ONLY be because there is NO way a juror in that part of florida has NOT seen the Black Panthers and their threats, have not seen the “hoodie marches” and the violence promised..We all know what will happen and the riots that will result. And any potential juror knows as well and will not judge this case based on the evidence, but on the fear that YOU have placed .

   
Laylie4 says:

WOW youre so delusional its amusing. You can’t seriously be so dim that you actually believe that story? You must be Trayvon since you know every thing he was planning on doing that night and every thought that was going through his head. Lmao I dont have much hope in humanity after listening to people like you voice your delusional opinions. Since you are apparently omnipotent, mind telling me the winning lotto numbers?

   
DJ says:

I’m glad you said it. I feel you have it very close to what really happened. People might not want to hear it or admit it, but let’s keep it 100 ya’ll. I’ve been looking, listening and researching and all of that and the more I see and learn, the more the picture becomes clear to me. There was a lot of shudda, wudda and cudda’s but at the end of the day, the facts speak for themselves and we have to allow ourselves to be receptive to them. We don’t have to like anyone or anything but we do need to be fair. I put myself in GZ and TM’s shoes in that situation and asked myself, “what would a rational person do and what would an irrational person do?” GZ rationally thinking would not have pursued TM when he saw him initially. A rational person would have pulled up to TM and from the car asked him if he lived in the complex or was he lost and needed a ride? If he didn’t live there or did not know anyone staying there, as off duty neighborhood watch GZ should have called the on duty neighborhood watch person and reported it and continued to go to Target which is why he was going out in the first place. TM in his rational mind would have kept on a straight path to his father’s condo staying on the main well lit street. We know that TM verbally confronted GZ because Rachel said it in court, “why you following me?” and GZ said it in his reenactment with the police, TM said “yo, you got a problem?” We may not want to admit it, but even though GZ was pursuing TM, Rachel and GZ say the same things happened around the same times respectively. For those of us that grew up and ran the hood as a black child, preteen and a teenager should be able to relate to TM’s mindset that day, during those time periods in that type of area. My OG “hoodsters” also know that when somebody approaches you, especially at night and say something like “why you following me, who chu lookin at, what’s yo problem, you gotta problem?” You boutta get jacked! Some of you will get what I’m talking about and others won’t. For those that don’t get it, you don’t understand how the hood works probably because you didn’t grow up in the ghetto.

The similarities;
-Rachel said that after TM said why you following me, then I heard him fall (she didn’t say who fell) then the phone hung up.
-GZ said that TM yelled to him, “yo, you got a problem?” GZ responded, he reached for his phone then TM punched him in the face.
-Looking at TM crime scene photo while he was on his back, his pants were wet on both legs from the knees down only. This is consistent with being straddled over someone on the wet grass.
-Police statement verifies that GZ had wet grass all over his back the night of the incident.
-GZ had bloody wounds on the back of his head which is consistent with his statement about having his head slammed into the sidewalk. Imagine trying to crack a cocoanut on a sidewalk by repeatedly rapidly slamming it on the concrete. Now imagine that cocoanut is your head. do you feel you would yell out help? just something to think about. Also, the wounds are consistent with the position he said he was in relative to the sidewalk which was at the edge part of the sidewalk. His cuts are horizontal and match up with his story about where he was positioned. It also matches the other witnesses story regarding the testimony on the way they were facing. At any rate, these are just some of the things I have observed and applied common sense and rational thinking to. There is only two people that know what the truth is and that is GOD and GZ.

   
parkside says:

No. I wouldn’t be able to yell outfif my head was being smashed into a sidewalk like trying to open a coconut. In fact, doubt I’d have the dexterity to reach for, unholster, release the safety then shoot. I’d also be gushing blood, as head wounds do. I’d be unsteady on my feet afterwards. I’d go to the ER. And there would be more scrapes on the hands of the one doing the slamming. OH. Add blood and DNA transfer both ways.

   
DJ says:

@Gayle my post was in reply to yours…

   
Warren Garrett says:

That’s exactly the first thing I would do …

   
CC says:

Ann Reid. (16 July 2012). Zimmerman relative, ‘witness 9’ accused Zimmerman of Racial bias. The Grio.

   
hillbilleter says:

As someone who has raised a son through the “possessed by aliens” teenage years, boys do NOT like to admit they need help. Although they are still children emotionally, they look like adults & feel like they should be self-sufficient. They usually would have to bat the idea of calling 911 around with someone before deciding to do it, if they decided to at all. Trayvon wasn’t a mature adult who would think first of calling for help; he was still childlike in his outlook, even he looked outside like a grown man. Seriously, raising a teenager of any color these days is scary at the best of times, with all they have confronting them every day. His poor parents are experiencing the worst of times.

   
fireitup says:

That is exactly what I thought!

   
ladygator says:

I don’t care what race or color GZ is he was told to not follow TM it was raining that night and I’m a white grandma and I wear a hoodie in the rain TM tied to walk faster but GZ kept going after him this is all on GZ and he is going to be convicted and burn in hell

   
Nevaeh says:

AMEN! R.I.P. Trayvon Martin! GZ will burn in hell forever!

   
dimples says:

I dont give a dam what color Zimmerman is. White, Black Green Purple,Red etc. What is the color of a troublemaking coward?

   
my2cents13 says:

Which one is the coward?

   
dimples says:

Sorry, thats Trayvon, not Trayron. I misspelled his name. I still got my point across. Its only my point.

   
Amanda says:

Imagine Zimmermans time in prison.. if he is found guilty.. and I believe he will be he will not be xoming out one way or the other

   
pkaboo says:

I agree w/RL, GZ should have kept himself in his truck. TM was no physical threat to GZ or anyone else before GZ got out of his truck. Stand your ground (to me) means staying put, not moving. Sort of like a catcher protecting the plate. TM was not breaking into GZ’s truck, and the “ground” GZ was so called protecting was not his and Miss Missy, I use to live in Los Angeles and Missy those “THUGS” would make you keep your ass in your car, gun or no gun.

My thought, if GZ had not had a gun would he still have approached TM?

   
DRex says:

PkaBoo: Good point on the would he have left his car if he hadn’t had the gun. Goes to mindset.

   
nhmom says:

This is a tough one for me. I do believe the kid was up to no good, I believe he is the one that attacked first. But..I don’t think Mr. Z should have gotten out of his car either. The police were on the way, they told him not to follow him..yet he did it anyhow. Almost have to say guilty just because of that. If you go against police orders and it results in something like this..you have to face the music. I think it should be manslaughter though. But have a very open mind and want to hear the trial. My thoughts and prayers to both families.

   
Shy says:

Up to no good doing what? Since you know and all? Wtf is wrong with people?

   
AJ says:

Mr. Martin turned 17 just a few weeks before he attacked Mr. Zimmerman. In the whole of the United States, if you are attacked you have the right to defend yourself and “meet force with force” – based on common law. In this case, the prosecution is going to try and say that Mr. Zimmerman was the initial aggressor (otherwise their case would be much worse than it is – they’ve already admitted that Mr. Martin attacked Mr. Zimmerman). In doing so, they’re going to go against what the Florida Supreme Court has said. One can not be the “initial aggressor” without committing a crime; the only crime Mr. Zimmerman is charged with is Murder II. The fallacy is painfully obvious. “How is he committing an independent crime (forcible felony, to be more specific) .. if he’s not charged with it?”

   
Dogg says:

They (the prosecution) already admitted Trayvon attacked GZ? No they didn’t. So typical of Zidiots to make stuff up or regurgitate the stuff other Zidiots made up

   
Safia says:

GZ was the initial aggressor. He stopped, he called, he was told to wait for law enforcement, he chose not to follow the instructions of the dispatcher even and he was NOT in imminent danger. More importantly, GZ had a gun.
It was more than reasonable for TM to defend himself against GZ. That would be covered under self defense. TM was not armed and was being pursued by a stranger. The teenager was, literally, trying to stand his ground.
To prove a self-defense case you need to prove the force used was reasonable. GZ does not have this reason. He pursued and then used lethal force before police arrived.
Hopefully, the prosecution will have enough evidence. Unfortunately, even if GZ is convicted it is unlikely he will have to serve much time. GZ’s father is a retired judge who has many connections and this did happen in Florida where justice can prove elusive.

   
my2cents13 says:

Safia, you are right. GZ’s dad is the reason he wasn’t arrested in the first place. He should be arrested and prosecuted along with others involved for obstruction of justice.

   
my2cents13 says:

Aj how aggressive could Trayvon have been to GZ have been had GZ remained in his truck. The first step of aggression was putting himself (GZ) into the situation, which he was directed not to do.

   
Karina says:

WINDY he was no angel. but He didn’t deserve to die! is that what your saying? He was being followed and there is proof! therefore he gunned him down. The guy wanted to be a hero.

   
my2cents13 says:

Well Karina – GZ certainly got everyone’s attention, just not as a hero. Unfortunately, there are some who are a bit confused on the issue.

   
Karina says:

Just because there is a kid white or black walking around with a hoodie in the night time it does not

give you the right to shoot him. GZ should’ve left that to the authorities but he didn’t care to stop

following the kid.. SO what if he had a record? and so what if he was 12 the pictures? Yeah he had

tattoos! everyone has tattoos now a days. Plus his tattoos were not visible at the time of the shooting.

He was doing nothing wrong. If he was then prove it! otherwise he was not a threat. If someone was

following me I would either run away or confront the person. he decided to confront GZ. Sorry this

all falls on GZ. it was his fault, he should’ve never followed him.

   
dimples says:

Some big guy like that following you in the dark, and you are innocent. First thing you say to yourself is who, and what is this guy coming up to me in the dark. Dam right, you attack first, if you can. How do you know if he wants to assault you, rape you, or now a days kill you to eat you! Trayron was a young boy, but he had more skills with his hands than Zimmerman. Thats why he got his ass whipped. Then you going to pull out a gun, in a fair fight. You lost, take your ass back in the truck and it would have been it. You learned a lesson. But nooo you going to pull out a gun. now look at what pride can do. If Trayron was a thug, Zimmerman would have gotten shot first, not Trayron. Did Trayron even have a knife? Im just saying.

   
Warren Garrett says:

If I was afraid of being followed, the first thing I would do is call police 911… I think n-e rational person wold do the same…

   
Jennifer Guinn says:

Exactly. If it was my mug to give away, you would win it! It is even obvious from the underhanded way his lawyers are approaching the case, bullying and using only selected parts of prior taped depositions to try to make Rachel look like a liar, that they are trying to be tricky and pull off some Creepy ass cracker shit. Old jerk trying to use big words when simpler words would work to once again trying to make a teenager to whom English is a third language look inferior. Wonder how many languages he knows…

   
my2cents13 says:

Does anyone know if the police were en-route before the shooting occurred. GZ called them didn’t he. Did they feel there was a probable cause enough for them to go out and investigate the situation before the shooting. After all, there was a black guy in a hoodie walking around without permission from his master.

   
Windy says:

I think it is poor characterization to say that George Zimmerman “gunned down” Trayvon Martin. The “teen” is no angel. He had a record of bad behavior. This page needs an update: GZ is not making a “stand your ground defense.” And why aren’t any of the posts time/date stamped?

   
my2cents13 says:

Technically, he did gun him down. He followed, he was getting beaten, then he shot. He didn’t need to follow him. His attorneys backed down from the “Stand Your Ground” defense because they know they can’t prove it.

I hate to burst some of ya’lls little bubble but Georgie poo is not a White man….he is Latino…I know it’s much more fun to call him a White guy….but ummmm check your facts people

   
Twistedsista1 says:

Latino is not a race. If he’s not Black or Asian, then he’s White.

   
AG says:

You’re absolutely wrong. Latino is Latino, Asian is Asian, White is White, and Black is Black. But all those are not races. It’s just how the people use it for the references.

   
linda crockett says:

Tell that to all the Latinos who wan5t to be known as what they are, Latino. That’s the problem in this country. everyone wants to be here, but they want to be known as African Latino Asian. Once you are a citizen why not just be American.

hillbilleter says:

It happens every day in every community; kids walk to the local store for a snack and a bit of fresh air and walk home again. High school student Trayvon Martin walked to his community store for a snack and was walking back home carrying Skittles and a canned drink. George Zimmerman was a member of Neighborhood Watch, supposed to be protecting Trayvon’s neighborhood, protecting Trayvon. Instead of introducing himself and finding out that Trayvon lived in the neighborhood, he stalked this unarmed boy, hunting Trayvon down while the police were telling him to remain in his vehicle, and shot the boy dead. Zimmerman killed one of the very children he was supposed to be protecting. The end.

   
Doug says:

We know what the trial is about.

   
Madalene Greco says:

I agree. This coward needed to stay in his vehicle as addressed and perhaps Trayvon would still be alive.

Now if Trayvon has a “history”, let the police handle those issues, but now it’s a moot point.

You are going down GZ!

   
Jennifer Guinn says:

Right!

   
NICK says:

Zimmerman saw him and called the police saying, ‘I am tried of al these gangbangers and thugs in our neighborhood, I’m gonna kill him, I’m gonna kill him

Uhm…this might be a silly question……but WHERE EXACTLY did you hear those words? On WHAT recording? I’ve listened to them ALL, that I know of, so if he said those words I would have to change my mind.

So, could you please tell me WHERE you heard these……because…I know youre not making this up, right??

   
Mia says:

Trayvon Martin was walking down the treet, in ahoodie, eatig Skittles and drinking an Arizona juice. Zimmerman saw him and called the police saying, ‘I am tried of al these gangbangers and thugs in our neighborhood, I’m gonna kill him, I’m gonna kill him’ and the police said, ‘Leave him alone’ trying to make him not bother Trayvon. But he felt ‘threatened’.

Meanwhile, Trayvon was on the phone with his gf and he saif that he was feeling scared because Zimmerman was following him. He ended up confronting Zimmerman and asked why he was following him, which efveryone has a right to do. In the end, Zimmerman killed him.

For nothing.

All because of a streotypical belief. All gangbangers and thugs wear hoodies o every black boy that wear a hoodie is a thug/gangbanger.

That is the dumbest logic I have ever heard in my life.

That monster had no right to kill someone’s child. Especially when the child was doing no harm to anyone.

And all the people that say he WAS a thug or whatever, does that still give anyone the right to kill another? I mean, seriously….can you really say that it’s right? Trayvon didn’t touch that man. Zimmerman was just being stupid and I hope he goes to jail.

Because what he did was out-of-line, tragic and disturbing. It also makes us all painfully aware of the mindset of most people in this country.

Just stupid.

In conclusion, your opinion is automatically invalid and I suggest you get it CHECKED or just send it to the cemetary because that noise dead.

And after reading these posts, I double my bet he burns. The poster USA had his FACTS all right, and he was called a racist and a bigot. Namecalling is ALWAYS the way to fight back when the facts ARE NOT on your side.

This poor bastard is gonna be found guilty…..cause of the color of his skin. Funny, isn’t that what people were COMPLAINING about??? Or is zimmerman just the wrong color??

   
my2cents13 says:

Try watching HLN. There are many hispanic males wearing hoodies, speaking to the media. Guess what they are saying? They don’t want GZ to get off because it is wrong to kill someone because you think they are a thug or because they have dark skin.

   
NICK says:

I HOPE he did it, cause hes gonna burn, whether he did it or not. There is NO WAY in HELL that this man goes free. His innocence is of NO IMPORTANCE, he is going to be a sacrifice to the PC god….and authorities do NOT want to deal with riots.

Truth will NEVER enter this trial. No one wants it……welcome to the USA 201

A thug?….Really? He was not the one running around the hood with a gun!!! If Zimmerman had just stayed in his truck like the police told him, Trayvon Martin would still be alive today!!!! Do you not understand that point….thug or not…so I guess you think thug a thug is a person carrying a bag of skittles and a juice a thug morons I tell you MORONS!!!!!

terri ….stay in the truck, or even listen to the emergency operator

   
Anne says:

Reading some of these racists posts, I really hope they are being written by people over 50 years old. I hate to think young people still harbor this ignorant hatred.
Zimmerman is indeed lucky he wasn’t creeping on this old woman because when I turned to face him I would be pulling the trigger at the same time. It’s not the day and age when you can sneak up on people or follow them closely for no reason; doing so can well get you killed and certainly doesn’t qualify as self defense. You’re not “standing your ground” when you’re creeping on people – you’re walking and you become a threat.

   
usa says:

trayvon was a thug. if being honest means being a bigot, then i guess i am one. zimmerman will be railroaded because odumbos son is dead. the bigot media first said hes a white boy just because of his last name is zimmerman, until they saw him and it was obvious hes hispanic, then he became a “white hispanic” in the media although he does not look white. he is brown. Only bigots i see are the media odumbo and some of the people on here. and racist thugs like spike lee and others tried to get a mob to attack him.

He was no thug, obviously you all don’t know the definition, probably haven’t seen the streets and are mostly racist…This coming from a white, American woman. What evidence do you all have that he is a thug?? You don’t know these two people personally so don’t judge. What I see is this guy George took his “job” a little seriously, was confronted by Trevon as to why he was stalking him, as would I, then these two got into it with Trevon winning and chose to cut Trevon’s life short by shooting him after freaking out when getting his *** wooped.

Jeanne says:

This was a 17 year old minding his own business walking home with a pack of candy, soda & talking to his girlfriend on his cell phone! His hands were occupied he was not up to anything! He was seen by this GZ, who was supposed to be on his way to a retail store who seized the opportunity to pretend to be a cop. He killed this young man in cold blood just because he was a wanna be cop!

   
Rocky says:

this so-called boy — thug – was beating George when he got shot.. George was luck to survive.

   
my2cents13 says:

Is it possible that Trayvon was defending himself. Oh, Oh, he can’t tell us can he. He’s dead. Killed by a man who’s been chomping at the bit to use his gun.

   
TruthMatters says:

Just wondering why they are still using a photo from when he was 12 years old? The media had long arms eh?

   
my2cents13 says:

And what difference does it make if they are showing a younger picture. What if they should a current picture, would that make it ok for GZ to follow and kill him.???

   
Scott says:

These comments blow my mind. Anyone who is saying he was a thug, is simply racist. The 17 yo KID, yes KID, was doing nothing wrong but walking home from the store. He sees a stranger following him, for no apparent reason, Trayvon is the one who should have STOOD HIS GROUND! I don’t care what color he was, red, yellow, black or white! He was walking home from the store and ends up dead because some cop wanna be stalked him and killed him….that simple.

   
FameWhoreBuster says:

As more and more facts & lies are exposed, I am 99.9% convinced that George Zimmerman acted in self-defense. He begged for help from the police, he cried for help from by-standers, & as a last resort he shot one, and only one, shot to stop the assault which caused him to fear death or great bodily harm. This is a classic example of self-defense. I would have done the same thing he did.

   
Elizabeth says:

Mr. Zimmerman, beg for help after he got a beat down. He was the aggresser and he bite off more than he could chew. He result to the only thing he knew that would stop the butt wiping and that is to shoot, and kill. I don’t think his action was done out of malice but more of boasting about authority that he thought he had, wish was self impose. I wish this hadnt happen because two lives was destroyed.

   
Anne says:

Really? You would stop your vehicle, get out in the rain, continue to follow a teenager when told by the cops to stop, and when you were confronted about why you were stalking them, you’d shoot and kill them? I don’t believe that. I believe if you were minding your own business and someone confronted you violently, you would defend yourself – and should. But I don’t believe you’d stalk strangers in the dark. And if you were being stalked by a stranger, you’d probably turn around and confront them – as you should. You might knock the crap out of them, they’d deserve that. But they can’t kill you on “stand your ground” premise if they are threatening you and you turn around to fight them.

   
RL says:

You stated GZ begged for help from neighbors; had GZ kept his ass in his truck as instructed by the 911 operator, Trayvon Martin would still be alive, the fake wannabe cop GZ would still be figuring out a way to stand his ground.

That stand your ground crap is nothing but a legalized way for white people to kill minorities, particularly blacks. It’s a horrific shame that as a kid walked to the store while talking on the cell phone to his girlfriend, to get a bag of skittles and something to drink ended up dead. AND…from what I’ve read, it was Trayvon Martin that was screaming for help. IF GZ got his ass whooped that night, he deserved it. No-one and I do mean no-one has the right to follow you, walk up on you, stalk you and kill you. GZ will burn in hell for his horrific actions.

White people, tell me…how would you feel if your 17 year old son decided to walk to the store while talking on the phone to his girlfriend to get a bag of candy and something to drink; next think you know, he’s followed, attacked and murdered by a black wannabe cop. The cop is not arrested because of the “stand your ground law”…Then days later negative stories are released about the child you just lost. We can’t forget this part, let’s say black citizens publicly supported this wannabe cop/murderer and even donated over $500,000 to him. Can you fathom the hurt, pain, anger, lies conspiracy and deceit involved in this case?

Take a moment and imagine if you were the parents and/or sibling(s) of Trayvon Martin, what would you be saying now?

   
Big DAD says:

Well the racist nature of your comments discredit everything you say.

Read the facts, GZ wasn’t told to remain in his truck. It was after he got out of his truck for a look at which way TMwas walking that he was advised they don’t need him to do that.

   
patzeee says:

he would have had NO fear had he remained in the truck and waited for the police.

   
hillbilleter says:

You mean you would have totally ignored the order to remain in your vehicle and followed a young man who had a perfect right to stand his ground when he saw you stalking & hunting him? Zimmerman was supposed to be protecting Trayvon. He could have introduced himself to the obviously unarmed youngster, and would have got the information that Trayvon lived in the neighborhood. That would have saved a lot of problems, and Trayvon’s life.

   
my2cents13 says:

FameWhoreBuster – You are so far off track. Try watching the trial or reading the facts. Then make another attempt at making an intelligent statement.

   
lefthandedrn says:

If GZ was the one crying for help, why did the cries stop immediately after the gun shot?

GZ did nothing wrong. Dude was a thug and got killed for being one. If you dont see what these animals are capable of…you probably wont understand. Good riddance.

   
mike says:

he was an unarmed child bro….. can you imagine your son, on his way home from buying candy, being followed by a grown man (stranger). other than law enforcement, who would your son owe an explanation to, about where he’s going? I hope a stranger gets his hands on “your” children… maybe then you’ll understand what a animal is.

   
missy says:

No he was not a child! He was 17 years old, covered in tattoos, stood 6’2 and weighed 165-175 lbs. The photo that is being shown is when he was 12! He has a police record. Educate yourself instead of relying on the media.

   
Concerned Parent says:

Being 17 years old IS STILL CONSIDERED A CHILD! He WAS NOT A THUG and regardless of height, weight, demeanor, this CHILD was not doing anything but walking home which, by the way, is not a crime by ANY standards. You are either racist or biased and either way, you are WRONG!

hillbilleter says:

With schools unable to paddle students these days, a lot of high school students get a police record instead of a paddling, which would be much less traumatizing. A high school kid with a police record isn’t a strange thing in these days of no corporal punishment for children. A child’s first introduction to punishment is a jail cell nowadays. Just means nothing got their attention until they have a police record.

my child would not be walking around in a strange apt complex with an UNopened can of Arizona fruit punch and Unopened Skittles…hiding in dark corners…interestingly enough two of the three ingredients in “syzzzurup” or “lean”: a popluar drink made with OXY to get you high. very dangerous. I have pity for the Martin Family, but find another argument besides the “sweet kid walking around in the rain just trying to get some candy and a fruit punch.

GZ killed him because he was a thug? Was he certified as a “Thug” killer. Was he being a “Thug” that knight? How did GZ know? Did Trayvon have a “T” stamped on his forhead, or was he killed because he had on a hoodie, had dark skill and GZ considered him as an animal like you just stated. The word racist is too good for you.

Concerned Parent: the racist name calling is getting old. And the author of this site is deliberately using an aged photo of Trayvon Martin as a 13 year old… when he was shot he was at least 17 years old.

How do you know this?

   
my2cents13 says:

Ok Missy. So how did GZ know he was a thug. And if he did, why didn’t he sit his wannabe cop but in his truck like the dispatcher told him to do. Oh, I know, the Trayvon was black, and wearing a hoody.

   
lefthandedrn says:

Based on what? Do you not know that GZ was 28 yrs old vs a 17 yr old? GZ had a much longer rap sheet. He was a woman beater, bar room brawler whose daddy got him out of trouble and tried to get him out of this one. Missy you need to stop calling that dead boy a thug. You don’t know him.
