What's amazing about this, and I wonder why it didn't come out at trial, but Trayvon Martin had pictures of himself in a safe deposit box, and on the back was written "if I turn up dead, Zimmerman started it".

CPennypacker: If someone is following you with a gun, do you think you should have to wait until they fire it at you to be able to defend yourself from it?


No; an aggressive display of the firearm, such as through brandishing, is sufficient to justify use of deadly force against the armed individual in such a hypothetical scenario.

Please explain why you believe that an individual who has not demonstrably violated any law prior to an attack should be denied a claim of self-defense after using deadly force to end an unprovoked physical attack on his person. Please also describe the crime that you believe to be indicated by evidence.

I don't know, Mr. Stark.  What universe did that happen in?

this one.  Trayvon Martin is dead.   Trayvon Martin was legally and innocently walking from a store to his home when he was killed.  But for George Zimmerman's actions on that night Martin would still be alive.  Fact are facts.  The Not Guilty verdict was the correct one based on the very poor job the prosecution did at trial.  But you are delusional if you think Zimmerman is in any way innocent of the murder of Martin

You need to put your emotions aside and look at the physical evidence.  If TM had not assaulted GZ, TM would be alive.

And if GZ hadn't assumed that a black kid walking down the street was a criminal, and hadn't been itching to play the hero in his own head, nothing would have happened.
 

If Trayvon had not gone to the store and walked back home, this wouldn't have happened.

If Trayvon had stayed at home after his initial  interaction with George, this wouldn't have happened.

If Trayvon had not returned to find George after initially losing contact with George, this wouldn't have happened.

If Trayvon had not struck George in the face with his fist and then decided to mount George like a Lipizzaner horse and proceed to bash George's head into the concrete, this wouldn't have happened.


So much blame to go around...and yet, the jury found George not guilty.  Hmmmm.  I wonder why they found him not guilty by reason of self-defenese and what that actually means.  I should go look that up.  Maybe there is something about defending oneself from imminent bodily harm in there.  I think I'll do that.

Can't believe we are still trying this case.  Ugh.

I believe George would be more of a Clydesdale.

He was told not to follow them. He followed them.

In other news, Zimmerman once called tech support and didn't have his boot discs handy, even though the guy told him to.

Also, one time at Wal-Mart, a sales associate said, "buy this, you won't be disappointed." Zimmerman didn't.

What's with his lack of respect for authority?

dittybopper: skozlaw: This is a simple case of a bunch of suburban Rambo wannabes throwing a brainless law on the books with no real regard for the potential consequences.

Actually, given the identical circumstances, Zimmerman would have likely been acquitted in nearly every other state.  Even in states where you have a duty to retreat, it's only required if you can do it in complete safety.  When George Zimmerman used deadly force (and it appears to be the *ONLY* time he used any significant force at all), he couldn't escape.  He was pinned to the ground by Trayvon Martin.


While you may claim that, and while physical evidence might seem to corroborate such a claim, and while a witness to the incident may have issued testimony consistent with the claim, the fevered imaginations of amateur analysts who are certain that Mr. Zimmerman exited his truck with the intention of hunting down and killing a black individual prior to confronting Mr. Martin, insulting Mr. Martin's mother and demanding that Mr. Martin call himself "Toby" before shooting Mr. Martin in the chest, then striking himself in the face several times before slamming his own head against the sidewalk should be be given equal consideration, for sake of fairness.

Called it.  I knew no one would riot.  All Americans have become much too complacent for that (not to mention the inherent racism implied in AA rioting).  We just talk shiat on social media.  If we were ever to face another civil war, I would assume it would start with a facebook page that said "revolution, like if you're for it, leave a comment if you disagree."

skozlaw: Magorn: The Not Guilty verdict was the correct one based on the very poor job the prosecution did at trial.

How would they have prosecuted successfully when Zimmerman was hiding behind one of the stupidest "right to kill" laws in the nation? The law is what it is:

A person who is not engaged in an unlawful activity and who is attacked in any other place where he or she has a right to be has no duty to retreat and has the right to stand his or her ground and meet force with force, including deadly force if he or she reasonably believes it is necessary to do so to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the commission of a forcible felony.

In Florida, it doesn't matter if your actions are what instigated a fight as long as they weren't violent. All that matters is that Martin was attacking Zimmerman when Zimmerman shot him. The stalking and harassment are immaterial and it's not illegal to be a racist prick. And since Zimmerman killed the only other eyewitness to the start of the fight, it was his word against nobody's as to how the physical altercation actually started.

This is a simple case of a bunch of suburban Rambo wannabes throwing a brainless law on the books with no real regard for the potential consequences. Without any other eyewitness to the actual start of the physical fight I fail to see how the prosecution was going to do win this when they're fighting against such a broad law.


You are correct. If Florida law required citizens who are subjected to a violent attack to endure the assault without engaging in action that may injure or kill their attacker, Mr. Martin may still be alive today. Hopefully, federal legislation will be proposed to correct the matter and protect the rights of violent attackers.

Wait, so in a universe where Martin is "white" (Jewish/Hispanic) and Zimmerman is black, Zimmerman would already be in jail?  This would mean that there is a black man with a job that is living with his wife, is volunteering in his community, is willing to call the police, legally acquired a handgun and shops at Target.  Yep.  That's crazy talk.

To The Escape Zeppelin!: The real people at fault here are Trayvon's parents. Your kid is suspended from school and your reaction is to let him go out and wander around the neighborhood at night? You didn't care enough to discipline him or make sure he was at school when he was alive but now that he's dead you see a big settlement in your future. Nice.


You've met them, then? I haven't. Really wanted to. But didn't get the chance. It must've been really nice to sit down with them, talk to them about the issue and get some insight into what they were thinking. And I'm glad you did that, because I certainly would never have been able to make a statement like the one you made without having some actual first hand evidence of what was going on before jumping to rash f*cking decisions toward something about which I know f*ck all.
