FTA: "He's going to be looking over his shoulder the rest of his life," Robert Zimmerman Jr. said during an interview on CNN.

I wonder how he'll react the first time a black guy starts following him around his neighborhood at night.

He should buck up. Now he'll have a chance to lose all that weight he gained.

While that sucks for the Martin family, I do agree with that - if you're acquitted in a criminal case you shouldn't face civil liability for the same incident.

It's not just a matter of the standard of proof being lower, you can be liable for civil damages without being criminally liable.

If you cause someone's death unintentionally you may not be guilty of a crime, but you still caused their death.  Just because you don't deserve prison doesn't mean that the family doesn't deserve compensation for the death.

Oh, look, I have a complete and utter lack of sympathy. This, children, is what happens when you ignore basic firearm safety, a 911 dispatcher, and the little voice in the back of your head that tells you that, no, arresting people is a job for the  police, not you.You are not in a movie, and if you play maverick expect it to backfire spectacularly.

The whole point of our criminal justice system is to prevent civil suits.  The English established that an offense against one of the Sovereign's subjects was an offense against the Sovereign himself to keep people from seeking justice the old-fashioned way with blood-feud.

Under the American version of this, Zimmerman was tried for an offense against "the people of the State of Florida" expressly to prevent the Martin family from seeking private justice for Trayvon's death.

I'm more worried about the jury.

Yeah, their names are sealed, but we're in 2013 here.  All it takes is one J4T script kiddie or a guy who knows a guy who knows a coworker who noticed "say, I haven't seen Alice in three weeks, she's been awful mum about what she was doing, but I think she mentioned jury duty, and come to think of it one of the jurors was a 32-year-old mother of two..."
 
2013-07-14 04:20:16 PM  
Torn on this.  He was found not guilty, but he seems far from innocent.

Can't believe he is 29, I thought I read that wrong.  Mid to late forties my guess.

I think he is now really going to need that gun....
 
2013-07-14 04:20:22 PM  
It would be ironic if Zimmerman WALKED to Treyvons house and started beating the shiat out of a bus driver, and then got shot. That would be ironic! Now... not so ironic.

Justice for Treyvon!

Florida jurys are so lame when the main evidence was Zimmerman leaving his vehicle when told not too(automatically invalidates any 'stand your ground' law for Zimmerman and gives 'stand your ground' to the kid.
Zimmerman at least should of gotten a year in prison or house arrest for that due to the resulting murder of the kid.

Farkers,

In what world is it ok to take it upon yourself to see a black kid walking down the street in your HOA neighborhood, go arm yourself with a gun...get a couple of flashlights and go stalk a kid drinking Arizona tea and eating Skittles while walking while black? Zimmerman is a wanna be cop HOA Nazi who stalked and instigated a confrontation and got his ass beat. Zimmerman deserved it. The kid had no deadly weapon and paid with his life.

Yeah, because the dispatcher told him not to follow, therefore Zimmerman never has any right to stand his ground...even if Martin assaults him in the Arby's parking lot a month later. Because he's waived his right to stand his ground against Martin, amirite?

I'd like to see the same people who believe O.J. "obviously" did it come here to explain to us all how Zimmerman can't possibly be a murderer because he was found not guilty.


Zimmerman was charged with murder.  Here's how murder was explained to me when I became a security guard (by a former cop who was my trainer):

If you are working on a construction site on some scaffolding and you sit you tool box down on the scaffolding, it breaks and the tool box falls and kills someone, that's negligence.

If you are on the scaffolding, you are told not to sit your tool box onto the scaffolding because the wood can not support the heavy tool box, and you do it anyways, and the tool box kills someone, that's manslaughter.

If you climb that scaffolding with a rifle and start killing people, that's murder.

Zimmerman didn't intend to end that kid's life.  So that rules out murder.  Had the state gone for manslaughter, it would have been different, and odds are he would have been convicted.

Following someone isn't illegal in FL. There is no way to tell who started the physical altercation but the jury decided there wasn't enough evidence to say it was Zimmerman beyond a reasonable doubt.

TuteTibiImperes: FTA: "He's going to be looking over his shoulder the rest of his life," Robert Zimmerman Jr. said during an interview on CNN.

I wonder how he'll react the first time a black guy starts following him around his neighborhood at night.



If that happens, think Zimmerman should:


1) GET ANGRY - OUTRAGED at the idea that ANY "creepy-ass cracker hunter" might be looking at him "funny"
2) RUN (so as not to look suspicious)
3) HIDE (so he can see what that "creepy-ass cracker hunter" is up to
4) JUMP OUT AND CONFRONT the "creepy-ass cracker hunter"
5) PUNCH the "creepy-ass cracker hunter" in the nose, knocking him down
6) POUNCE on top of the "creepy-ass cracker hunter" banging his head on concrete, if possible
7) PUMMEL the "creepy-ass cracker hunter" mercilessly, as the "creepy-ass cracker hunter" cries for help
8) SMOTHER the "creepy-ass cracker hunter" to try to keep him from screaming
9) IGNORE concerned neighbors when they tell him to stop, and that they're calling police, AND
10) DIE when the "creepy-ass cracker hunter" pulls a concealed weapon and blasts Zimmerman in the chest

Because that's what harmless, innocent people (like Trayvon) do when they see someone eying them with suspicion, right?

RIGHT?

We have neighborhood watch where I live, and that is what they do. They carry no weapons. They have a flashlight and a cellphone. They are simply living smart cameras that watch what goes on in the neighborhood, hence the name "neighborhood watch". They do not confront, they do not question, and most of all, they do not attempt to apprehend. They observe and report, that is all.

Would it have been that difficult for this two time police department reject and robocop wannabe to do just that? Wait in the truck for the cops? That's where the stupid is, and your choice to defend this waste of human skin says much about you.

He was found not guilty, so leave it be. I cannot see why those who criticized Zimmerman for being a vigilante would approve of vigilante justice being applied to him. He can walk in public and while people may not like him, they cannot legally attack him. If they do, he can defend himself with up to lethal force if necessary.

I'm not stupid enough to follow around "suspicious" youths pretending to be a rent a cop. Zimmerman was in the wrong for starting the confrontation.

Using your logic can I pick a fight with a random person on the street and then shoot them when they start winning the fight. Never mind that I started the fight. Because that is pretty much what happened.

I That's like saying those killed at Kent State weren't unarmed because there was pavement around them.  The kids killed at Columbine H.S. weren't unarmed because of hard tile floors, and metal lockers, and chairs and desks... 
The people at the federal building in OKC when McVeigh bombed it, the people in the WTC, they weren't unarmed! There was so much cement in those buildings!


A legal action does not call for an illegal response. The prosecution itself said Zimmerman following Trayvon was not illegal nor has any evidence been presented to indicate that he started the fight. If you have this evidence you should have contacted the prosecution while the investigation and case were on-going.

iq_in_binary: Carth: Benevolent Misanthrope: I wonder what would happen if he made the mistake of walking at night, and someone else took a gun, called the cops, followed him against police instruction, picked a fight, got their ass kicked, and shot him.

Not that it would happen - Zimmerman, despite his self-perception, could never kick anyone's ass.

yea, there is no evidence those two things every happened.

Yes there is, the teenager on his chest in full mount. That he shot in the chest. Because a TEENAGER was on his chest. IN FULL MOUNT. That's like riding a god damned toy pony and getting bucked off.

He's not threatening enough to provoke violence if he's so pathetic that he had to shoot a teenager after getting on him full mount. He had to be an ankle biter.


His gym trainer pretty much testified to that. He said he was so weak and soft he worried he'd lose when shadow boxing. If you have no physical abilities a gun is a pretty good equalizer.

The most interesting part of this trial for me was that I was able to observe fark regulars who normally deny things like science and facts applying the same exact faulty logic to this case. Id never bothered to keep track of various peoples names and opinions before.... now I've got hoards marked/flagged for easier discussions in the future.

Its kind of nice.

I'd like to see the same people who believe O.J. "obviously" did it come here to explain to us all how Zimmerman can't possibly be a murderer because he was found not guilty.


It never was about proving Zimmerman "couldn't possibly be a murderer". The states job was to prove "beyond a reasonable doubt" that he was a murderer and had nothing but supposition. Most reasonable people felt the state proved far beyond a reasonable doubt OJ was a murderer and got off because a jury of bias black people found out one of the cops uttered an illegal word in the past. Many of the same people cheering in the streets after that bogus verdict are all buthurt after this one. Trademark Martin deserved what he got. Deal with it OJ fans.

Except for, you know, the pictures of the kid from 5 years prior that were digitally lightened to make him seem 'less frightening' when the reality was this kid was up to no good and was actively beating a guy into the ground for the mere fact that he was - LEGALLY - following him.

Guess what? Our community does the same thing.  We have police in unmarked Malibus that patrol our streets for this very reason ... to confront, question, and observe the community and those people in it.  It makes not a damn bit of difference in the case if Zman was LEGALLY following Martin.  Again, LEGALLY FOLLOWING.  That isn't lawfully stalking, it isn't threatening, and it's not illegal. Period.

What WAS illegal was Martin deciding to get violent against a guy with a concealed weapon.  That was his downfall - and ultimately, the proximate cause of his own death.  Martin caused this when he decided to not run to his home that was a mere 100 yards away - but to actively and VIOLENTLY confront a guy that was following him.

That was covered pretty well in last nights thread; under Florida law he is immune from civil suits since he was acquitted.

While that sucks for the Martin family, I do agree with that - if you're acquitted in a criminal case you shouldn't face civil liability for the same incident.

In the OJ case the civil suit wasn't for murder. It was for wrongful death.

Zimmerman neither knew how to use his weapon nor knew better than to think the gun in his pocket made him a badass, again, witnessed by the fact that a fight escalated to the point that a FARKING TEENAGER WAS ON TOP OF HIM IN A FULL MOUNT.

That is so many levels of fail I don't even know how to start. Oh yeah, he went looking for it. Doubles the fail. If it were anymore of a failure it would be an undiscovered state of matter.

If the martin's sue zimmerman they'll have a hearing on whether it was self defense. If so he will be immune from a civil suit and the martin's will have to pay the legal and court costs. Considering the criminal trial will be looked at as evidence and a jury found him not guilty it is a pretty big risk considering they already got over a million dollars from the HOA.

Uhm, concrete pavement can be considered a deadly weapon, just do you know. But, I love how the following necessarily leads to altercation. I guess I better be the only one in line at Wal-Mart, lest when I follow someone out, an altercation ensues.

The altercation was not a necessary outcome of the following. It was a necessary outcome of Martin doubling back and then sucker-punching Zimmerman in an act of racially motivated hate-crime. Get the cracker...how dare he....GASP...follow us on public property. Following someone is MURDER!!

Derp.

It all started when Martin started it...not when Zimmerman tried to fight back.

So because you decide to carry a gun on your person and follow all acceptable laws in doing so, you should forfeit all rights to leave your home, forever.


The point, you missed it. This isn't about "guns" genius, it's about someone who wanted to be a cop so badly that he chose to run around in the middle of the night like the motherfarking Batman.

You want to make it about guns, go right ahead, all you gun nuts do. That's your fetish, not mine. This wasn't the case here... it was about some pussy ass who chose to do what he had no business doing, what he had been advised not to do by the police dispatcher, even if he had been armed with only a paper clip and a rubber band. Even if you have a gun a responsible gun owner DOES NOT INSTIGATE OR CONFRONT, because any gun owner with two working brain cells realizes the deadly potential of the object they are carrying.

If you are a pussy ass you do not instigate contact or confront people. You wait your ass in the truck until the police you just called show up.

heavymetal: This About That: I hear he has made quite a tidy profit, with at least one book deal to come. On the other hand, the civil suits haven't even started yet.

That is what I am thinking. Trayon Martin's family will sue Zimmerman, win, and Zimmerman will basically be Trayvon Martin's family's indentured servant for the rest of his life. If someone doesn't kill Zimmerman, he will probably "off" himself within 5 years because of being hated and broke.


LMAO.  Zimmerman will sue Martin's family and take their sweet HOA settlement away.  Then Zimmerman will start working on the list of people he can sue, and he'll make money off of every single one of them.  Hell, if I was Zim, I'd demand 50% of the profits on Trayvon-related merchandise, and a seat on the non-profit's board with a salary.

No one can touch Zimmerman over Martin's death.

iq_in_binary: phenn: iq_in_binary: The fact that he had an unarmed teenager on top of him in full mount means that he had absolutely no business carrying the gun he used to kill Trayvon.

That actually says he had EVERY business carrying a gun. Your logic is a bit odd.

Getting a teenager on top of you in full mount is like riding a toy pony and getting bucked off.

Either way, you're far out of your league, you've entered the wrong damn stadium, and you need an adult to keep you from doing something stupid.

NOT somebody I want carrying a gun. Oh yeah, I carry one myself, I have a right to farking comment.

I'm not a Travon supporter. However, I support the fact that someone who walks into a situation of his own making and then shoots someone else "in self defense" even less.
Ask yourself: other than taking a shortcut through the wrong neighborhood, was he actually doing something suspicious or wrongful?  Should Zimmerman have followed a stranger who was walking alone at night?  Was there any suspicious activity that led up to calling the police or following his conversation with the police that required he leave his truck to confront Martin?

Point is: unless the kid was actually engaged in suspicious activity- ie peeking in car windows and checking locks, stopping at various homes to take notes, shaking up a can of spray paint even- there is little reason to contact police, let alone confront.

Recent activity in my neighborhood involved a teen stumbling about in front of my home and then finally peering in my lower window.  I was a bit pissed but rational believing him to be one of the guests across the street who heard my daughter talking in the room and thought he'd have a peek..  I asked him if he lost something.  The terrified teen quickly backed off apologizing about "trespassing" on my lawn.  Somewhere in the babbling, he mentioned a guest that that was visiting my daughter had said she had invited him.  I yelled after him if he knew our guest that he was welcome to speak with them but he was too scared and ran off.

I commend the kid for keeping his distance and his recognition that poking around in other people's property is suspicious- adults have become so unreliable these days-- regret that kids can't just be smart enough to make harmless requests rather then being sneaky about things.  Had they have done so, the boy was welcome to hang out on the back deck and chat (we don't let our kids or their guest wander around the neighborhood after midnight.

legion_of_doo: DoomPaul: He was found not guilty, so leave it be. I cannot see why those who criticized Zimmerman for being a vigilante would approve of vigilante justice being applied to him. He can walk in public and while people may not like him, they cannot legally attack him. If they do, he can defend himself with up to lethal force if necessary.

Maybe not, but this thread has plenty of them who think vigilante justice should be applied to GZ.



Speaking only for myself I would have been happy were Zimmerman found guilty, but he wasn't. I think that if I want to consider myself a decent human being, the only thing I can do is wish him peace. If I think vigilante "justice" has no place in civilized society, which I do, I can't cheer would-be vigilantes wishing to harm Zimmerman, and I don't.

We also have in this thread people saying things like "I hope somebody goes after him and he busts a few more caps in self defense", I guess because hooray for killing, ending another human life really sounds like awesome fun or something, to that twit's mind apparently.

If you're looking for a self-indulgent Team-Zimmerman-good-team-Martin-bad narrative to entertain yourself with, or its opposite, go right ahead if you wish, but I really think it's never, ever quite that cut and dried.

rewind2846: If he's that much of a pussy-boy that he thinks he needs a gun on him all the time, them maybe he shouldn't be running around in the middle of the night purposely f*cking with people. Stay your cowardly pussy ass home.


You were the one that originally made it about guns, sport. Looks like it really is your fetish at work here. Nice try moving the goalposts, though, it's just too bad your words are there for everyone to see.

rewind2846: This wasn't the case here... it was about some pussy ass who chose to do what he had no business doing, what he had been advised not to do by the police dispatcher, even if he had been armed with only a paper clip and a rubber band. Even if you have a gun a responsible gun owner DOES NOT INSTIGATE OR CONFRONT, because any gun owner with two working brain cells realizes the deadly potential of the object they are carrying.


The proof that Zimmerman started the confrontation is lacking. In fact, all of the evidence points to the contrary. Rachel Jeantel testified that: Martin was in his father's backyard at one point in their conversation, yet somehow the confrontation started almost 300 yards to the north at the intersection of the "T"; that Martin spoke to Zimmerman first. Not to mention those little things like physical injuries - you know, the fact that Martin didn't have a mark on him other than the gunshot and the abraded knuckles from where he was hitting Zimmernan, and the witness that definitively stated that Martin was on top of Zimmerman "ground and pound" style while Zimmerman was yelling for help.

Show me the evidence that Zimmerman was doing anything other than observing Martin, in a public space where Zimmerman had every right to be observing whoever he wanted to observe.

rewind2846: If you are a pussy ass you do not instigate contact or confront people. You wait your ass in the truck until the police you just called show up.


And now seem to be walking back your claim that if Zimmerman owns a gun and wants to carry it, he should never leave his house. Now you're claiming that if Zimmerman owns a gun and carries it, he should never be able to leave his vehicle.

That's..... really rational of you, let me tell you.

But GZ was waiting in his car when this took place;
2:08 Dispatcher: He's running?  Which way is he running?
2:10 (door opens, sound of door alarm)
2:10 Zimmerman: Ah, down towards the, ah, other entrance of the neighborhood.
2:14 (door closes)
2:14 Dispatcher: OK.  Which entrance is that that he's heading towards?
2:17 Zimmerman; The back entrance.
2:23 Dispatcher: Are you following him?
2:25 Zimmerman: Yeah.
2:26 Dispatcher: OK, we don't need you to do that.
2:28 Zimmerman: OK.


at this point GZ started walking back to his truck (according to testimony) when he was confronted by TM, sucker punched, and had his head pounded into the ground.

Why do people keep missing that part?

Carth: iq_in_binary: Carth: iq_in_binary: Carth: Benevolent Misanthrope: I wonder what would happen if he made the mistake of walking at night, and someone else took a gun, called the cops, followed him against police instruction, picked a fight, got their ass kicked, and shot him.

Not that it would happen - Zimmerman, despite his self-perception, could never kick anyone's ass.

yea, there is no evidence those two things every happened.

Yes there is, the teenager on his chest in full mount. That he shot in the chest. Because a TEENAGER was on his chest. IN FULL MOUNT. That's like riding a god damned toy pony and getting bucked off.

He's not threatening enough to provoke violence if he's so pathetic that he had to shoot a teenager after getting on him full mount. He had to be an ankle biter.

His gym trainer pretty much testified to that. He said he was so weak and soft he worried he'd lose when shadow boxing. If you have no physical abilities a gun is a pretty good equalizer.

Then you should definitely keep yourself out of situations where a fight is likely.

Nobody has any sympathy for the useless fark that picks a fight and get his ass kicked.

But EVERYBODY has sympathy for him when he goes biatch mode and shoots the guy he picked a fight with.

The jury reviewed the evidence and concluded there wasn't proof beyond a reasonable doubt that he started fight. That's not to say Martin did but there is no way to be sure. Would you really be ok with sending someone to jail for 30 years for something no one can prove?

It is fine to think Zimmerman is an idiot or a wimp (which i would say there is plenty of evidence for) but there is no evidence anything he did that night was illegal


He pursued. Yes I would be fine with it. I go to jail for it? He gets to too.

I have a little bit of a skewed view because of my old job, but I ALSO have a far wider view from a self defense point of view both because of the breadth given me in situations because of my old job AND the fact that my old job was finding evidence for people in criminal cases. Yeah, it's a weird view but I changed my personal defense procedure because of it specifically to err on the side of people generally being ok. When I first started? Yeah I would have put myself in jail knowing what I know now. I will admit that openly, but I changed. I went from Fight to Flight. The bottom line is, you lose all farking credibility when you do anything but either try to get the fark away, or preempt the assault. Get the fark away first. Zimmerman went looking for a damned fight. I NEVER did that. I didn't avoid them at first, but I NEVER went looking for it. And finding trouble and putting myself in the middle of it without a badge was my god damned job.

To the core this is a huge issue for libertarians, and to the core I am a libertarian, not the religious dominionist type that loves either of the Pauls or the idiot types that see Atlas Shrugged as gospel, an actual libertarian. And one of the cores of that belief is live and let live, you do your thing, I'll do mine, if those things start to clash, let one or the other get away. I can trail people as my old job entails without them ever even realizing I'm there, or at the very least I'm not going to make them feel threatened by getting in their personal space. Zimmerman went looking for the fight by both tailing in an obvious manner and getting in Martin's space. He instigated. For me that's a big no no, yeah, some of that is because I was bullied as a kid, but it also resulted in me deciding that GETTING THE fark AWAY or at least attempting to was important to justifying self defense. Guess what, alot of people benefit from that and still do.

It's very much a basic and irreconcilable difference for many self defense experts and me, but there it is. Most of the sage ones I know on the subject were military, usually in the service department. We'll never agree, but a few of them know where I'm coming from, and a few have repeated the doc's suggestion that I write a book. But I do the very damndest that I can to make sure that the fourth stage (preemptive offense) is after making it very obvious that pursuing me was both a bad idea and something that I DID NOT WANT. I'm giving you every god damned hint that I can that I do not want to be in arm's reach of you, pay attention to--ooops you just got ran over by a truck, never mind.

Yeah, I'm farked up, but you'll not see me feeling an ounce of guilt for any violence I partake in. Zimmerman? I dunno, what do you think would have happened to him if it was me he chased around the apartment complex?

Molavian: LMAO. Zimmerman will sue Martin's family and take their sweet HOA settlement away. Then Zimmerman will start working on the list of people he can sue, and he'll make money off of every single one of them. Hell, if I was Zim, I'd demand 50% of the profits on Trayvon-related merchandise, and a seat on the non-profit's board with a salary.

No one can touch Zimmerman over Martin's death.


To think that family got 2 million from the HOA. Every time I saw them at the trial that's what was in my head. The fact they lawyer-ed up and settled business before their sons so called murderer was even convicted shows where their hearts were.

This is about a stupid person who acted stupidly. That stupidity cost Trayvon Martin his life, and I have no problem with Zimmerman having to watch out for his own life until his dying day.

Please tell me you're trolling. Please.

heavymetal: This About That: I hear he has made quite a tidy profit, with at least one book deal to come. On the other hand, the civil suits haven't even started yet.

That is what I am thinking. Trayon Martin's family will sue Zimmerman, win, and Zimmerman will basically be Trayvon Martin's family's indentured servant for the rest of his life. If someone doesn't kill Zimmerman, he will probably "off" himself within 5 years because of being hated and broke.


And you set yourself up to be butthurt again.
It was self defense when the cops arrived, but you chose to believe the sesationalizism generated by the media
Knuckleheads, like you, having knee-jerk reactions resulted in the trumped up political arrest of an innocent man and a waste of tax money prosecuting a dead case to appease you morons. What you only accomplished was to set youselves up for a butthurt when he was aquitted.

Not that it would happen - Zimmerman, despite his self-perception, could never kick anyone's ass.

yea, there is no evidence those two things every happened.

Yes there is, the teenager on his chest in full mount. That he shot in the chest. Because a TEENAGER was on his chest. IN FULL MOUNT. That's like riding a god damned toy pony and getting bucked off.

He's not threatening enough to provoke violence if he's so pathetic that he had to shoot a teenager after getting on him full mount. He had to be an ankle biter.

His gym trainer pretty much testified to that. He said he was so weak and soft he worried he'd lose when shadow boxing. If you have no physical abilities a gun is a pretty good equalizer.

Then you should definitely keep yourself out of situations where a fight is likely.

Nobody has any sympathy for the useless fark that picks a fight and get his ass kicked.

But EVERYBODY has sympathy for him when he goes biatch mode and shoots the guy he picked a fight with.

The jury reviewed the evidence and concluded there wasn't proof beyond a reasonable doubt that he started fight. That's not to say Martin did but there is no way to be sure. Would you really be ok with sending someone to jail for 30 years for something no one can prove?

It is fine to think Zimmerman is an idiot or a wimp (which i would say there is plenty of evidence for) but there is no evidence anything he did that night was illegal

He pursued. Yes I would be fine with it. I go to jail for it? He gets to too.

I have a little bit of a skewed view because of my old job, but I ALSO have a far wider view from a self defense point of view both because of the breadth given me in situations because of my old job AND the ...


I asked you last night but had to go to bed. Did you ever find a law in FL that makes it illegal to follow someone? When the judge asked the persecutors for one they weren't able to find any. In fact when they wanted to charge Zimmerman for third degree murder the only other felony they could attach to it was "child abuse". If there was felony following I"m sure they would have gone with that instead.

As someone who spent 3 years working at the Cato Institute I'm pretty well away on L/libertarians feelings on self defense and the case in general.

I think it was stupid for Zimmerman to follow Martin (especially  if he thought martin was dangerous) but I don't think people should be put in jail for doing stupid but legal things.

Someone walks through a "bad" neighborhood, leaves their front door unlocked, or passes out drunk. None of these excuse someone attacking, robbing, or raping the person even though they could have avoided it. A legal action does not warrant an illegal response. I wouldn't be fond of someone following me asking me what am I doing here, but that is not illegal nor does it warrant me getting physical with them.

Molavian: I realize exactly what happens in a case like this, where a defendant has been acquitted.  Do you realize what will happen?


Yes. Because they point out in a HCP class exactly what will happen next when your actions are the reason for the escalation of a situation. Florida law only applies blanket civil immunity in a situation which was deemed stand your ground, or if you are inside of your own dwelling or vehicle at the time lethal force was justifiably used.

Florida law imposes NO duty to act when you suspect a crime is in progress. You have no legal authority to intervene unless you suspect your life, or another person's life, is in imminent danger by the reasonable man standard. Even then, civil protection against lawsuit for negligent/wrongful death is only granted if specific criteria are met.

Zimmerman should take his checkbook out. The Martin family will tell him when to stop writing zeroes.

Assuming all goes well with that route.

He didn't testify. People may identify with him to the extent that crime is frustrating, but beyond that, most people don't police their own neighborhoods armed with a firearm -- if they did, this would not be news. We don't know if he's likeable or relatable.

There's no evidence he can leverage his notoriety into financial security for the short-term, let alone the long-term. Any book he writes, and any interview he gives, only opens him up to the possibility of perjury charges, etc.

Sure I could have prevented it, but that does not excuse their actions nor does it make me legally culpable.


His action of following was an escalation of action. He suspected a crime was in progress - he's actually stated this. That's the reason he followed Martin. He was even told by a 911 dispatcher not to do that, and that he was putting himself in unnecessary danger by doing so. In that case, Florida Law and the standard for HCPs around the nation is to act as a witness alone, not to intervene. By following Martin, it's easy to point out that in the situation he escalated it to the point of physical altercation. And it's just as easy to argue that Martin felt threatened - since there were no witnesses to what happened next.

Zimmerman played pretend police, and as a result, someone died. His actions, it could be pointed out, were negligent and out of his legal duty to act as a HCP holder.

Not true. GZ was working as neighborhood watch, so he has a right or duty to act on suspicious activity. GZ saw a person he did not recognise as a member of the community at night and at a time when the area had recent buglaries.

The story on the left is factual, the story on the right is editorialized as all hell.  Scott witnessed a crime in progress, confronted the criminals on his front lawn, was charged by one of them and killed his attacker.  Zimmerman saw no crime in progress.  He stalked Martin and left his car to chase him down after being told not to do so by the police.

Those in Zimmerman's corner believe that everything that took place prior to the physical confrontation between Martin and Zimmerman is irrelevant and all that matters is that in the course of a fist fight which Zimmerman was losing, he shot and killed Martin.  The rest of us believe that Zimmerman's actions led directly to the confrontation and his failure to act responsibly led to Martin's death and that he should have to pay for that negligence.

The two cases are not comparable.

What a proud, intelligent, upstanding individual. Give that man the Nobel Peace Prize.

I'm just glad to see a justice system finally taking a good hard look into self defense shootings.  Yes, I know that wasn't used in this defense, but since the survivor is the only one who gets to tell the story, the courts owe it to the deceased to be really sure that's how it went down.  "He was coming right for me!" should never be an automatic Get Out of Jail Free card.

I love the fact that people on the internet have exaggerated, overstated, and flat out imagined evidence and events that never existed in the altercation, got all hyped up, and now expect the world to hate Zimmerman based on it. fark that.

There wasn't enough evidence to support a conviction. There wasn't enough evidence to even disprove a supposed liar's account, and a fair bit of evidence that supported it.

Also, seriously? "he got out of his car, this proves that he was intent to murder Trayvon"? What the hell?  Seriously, if that's your idea of solid proof of anything, then god help anyone stuck with you as a juror.  You people make me sick. I don't want to see a man walk free that is guilty, but I want to see the justice system stick with what it can prove with evidence. We're not some third world country where we can lynch a man because we think he did something. You got evidence? prove it. Otherwise, shut the fark up.

FloydA: TuteTibiImperes: FTA: "He's going to be looking over his shoulder the rest of his life," Robert Zimmerman Jr. said during an interview on CNN.

I wonder how he'll react the first time a black guy starts following him around his neighborhood at night.


Sadly, I suspect we already know.


If I had to pick either an alive Travyon or Zimmerman as a neighbor....I'll take Zimmerman every time.
