signaljammer: I'm white, about to be fifty-three years old. If you start a confrontation with me on the street and you are not a uniformed police officer, things are going to get very violent nearly immediately. I am going to make no presumptions but that you are crazy and ill-intended. I know better than to wait 'til the situation deteriorates. I don't know that your buddies aren't about to turn the corner. I will do the best I can to separate my attacker (fighting words are beyond adequate) from his senses just as quickly as possible.//not an ITG,//just a guy from the West Side.
borg: Zimmerman was the aggressor
R.I.P Robert Zimmerman
Generation_D: I'm having a hard time figuring out what they hope to prove unless the argument is, no matter what Zimmerman might have contributed to a bad situation (even as the initiator of the conflict and the only adult in the situation)He was black, Zimmerman shot him, and the gun recoiled hitting him in the face, causing a slight nosebleed. The important thing was Zimmerman shot a black man in cold blood. Once you realize that, all the internet tough guy excuses all start to make sense.
Fark Me To Tears: FTFA: "Trayvon Martin was defending himself. He had every right to stand his ground to defend himself," Crump said.So, Trayvon was allowed to defend himself, but Zimmerman was not? Is that the logic here?
s2s2s2: squirrelflavoredyogurt: Cool story bro, here's a link to the guy who wrote Florida's "Stand your ground law" and his quote about Zimmerman which is, "He has no protection under my law".Good thing the defense isn't using SYG defense, but instead the statutes that relate to use of deadly force when losing a fight.
Abacus9: Fact 3: Zimmerman decides to follow Martin anyway.
Matthew Keene: Oh, what if.............![thegrio.files.wordpress.com image 487x365]
BronyMedic: Or it could be the fact that his story doesn't add up given the evidence...
BronyMedic: that he was never as badly injured as he claimed (Oh, I can't wait for the EMS field report to come out at trial.)
BronyMedic: that he repeatedly disobeyed someone giving him advice to say in his vehicle and not pursue someone on foot
BronyMedic: Or it could also be the fact that Zimmerman was known as someone who had anger management, and authority issues, and fancied himself a wannabe cop.
God-is-a-Taco: The tomato is a vegetable that has many uses in various recipes, most notably Italian.
lohphat: Why didn't he have that bloody and swollen nose in the police station video taken the same night?
BronyMedic: Police Evidence Photo taken that same night, two hours later:i.huffpost.comSO THAT'S WHY GEORGE ZIMMERMAN IS BEING PERSECUTED SO MUCH! HE'S REALLY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST'S SECOND COMING. LOOK AT THOSE MIRACULOUS HEALING POWERS!
ohokyeah: Zimmerman was initially just following Martin but it devolved into stalking, and Zimmerman was told by dispatchers to not pursue Martin, but to instead wait for the police. Zimmerman is the aggressor because he was being a stalker and confronted Martin. If a guy was following me around in his truck and then on foot and started interrogating me, I'd feel threatened too.Whether or not the kid physically struck first or Zimmerman was in mortal danger from the fight, Zimmerman was the first one being aggressive in his behavior. It was Martin who lost the fight, but Zimmerman who really triggered the fight.Had Zimmerman followed the dispatcher's instructions and waited for the police to arrive, Martin would probably be alive still, Zimmerman would feel a bit stupid because he would find out he'd been following a kid with Skittles and tea, but no one would be hurt. Zimmerman might still be up on stalking charges, but certainly not murder.Stalking is hostile behavior.
Shostie: MaudlinMutantMollusk: DRINK!OH THANK GOD!I've been so thirsty these many months!
