Why do people know who his doctor is? I don't buy it.

As I say in every thread about this guy.... if he wants to have anything close to a normal life, he needs to stay the fark out of the media spotlight that he keeps thrusting himself into and keep a low profile.  i honestly wouldn't think about the guy at all if he didn't keep giving interviews and stoking the flames.

While yes, I agree that Zimmerman's life would be easier if he stayed home that night...framing it that way is such a cop out. His life would've also been easier if he never called the cops in the first place. Or if he called the cops, but then left it up to them to investigate.

Zimmerman makes it sound like he encountered a completely unavoidable situation. This wasn't a traffic accident or getting struck with a bolt of lightening or something. He made choices which directly led to all of this. Can he not see that?

Contrary to popular belief, it actually is possible to defend yourself without firing a gun at someone.

An even better method of defense is to not put yourself in a situation like that in the first place. Observe and report would have and should have been sufficient.

And in civilized states, shooting someone after you escalate a situation is ALSO illegal. Zimmerman stalked Martin. Martin may well have feared for his OWN life, and that's why he started hitting Zimmerman. Zimmerman escalated the situation by continuing to harass Martin. And I guarantee you he would never have said a damn thing to a white kid

As for the bullshiat about Zimmerman being "not white," It's just that- Bullshiat. He IS Hispanic... But Hispanic isn't a race, it's an ethnicity. There are white hispanics, black hispanics, and indian (Native American/ south american) Hispanics. Saying Zimmerman is not white, he's Hispanic is like saying I'm not white, I'm European.

And the bullshiat about "sizzurp" and whatever is just that: complete, fabricated bullshiat. Zimmerman MURDERED a teenager who felt threatened and tried to defend himself against some jackass who was harassing him while he was minding his own damn business.

1) As someone above pointed out, he's almost certainly lying. There's no reason anyone would know who his doctor is... unless he's going around telling people.

2) In that case, he's a massive asshole for publicizing information like who his doctor is, knowing full well when he does so that his doctor might receive death threats.

3) It's wise to avoid all contact with him whatsoever under any circumstances though. If he's telling the truth, why would you want to make yourself a target? If he's lying, he's not only a child killer, but a dishonest crook playing on the compassion of good people for personal gain. Either way, it's best to shun him.


When has George Zimmerman ever said anything that checked out as truthful? I don't pay that much attention to him, but I do see the occasional "Zimmerman rips off stock photo; claims it's an original painting" story. As far as I can tell, he's a pathological liar with lots of other fun sociopathic tendencies.

Thank you citizen!

But that doesn't mean I'm obligated to give the slightest shi*t if his life is an unceasing parade of death threats and physical attacks. In fact, I'm allowed to hope the animal gets threatened and physically attacked every day until he commits suicide. I'm allowed to even express that hope in public forums like these!

And were I to serve on a jury for a person accused of threatening, attacking, or even killing Zimmerman, I would also be allowed to cast my vote however I saw fit. Whether or not I have a "right" to nullify wouldn't even come into issue were I to express any "not guilty" vote only in terms relating to a choice to believe or disbelieve pertinent evidence.

"I'm sorry. It just really seems to me like Officer Friendly is lying. In my experience people who express themselves the way he does just can't be trusted. I don't believe a word of his report. In fact, I'm pretty sure Zimmerman is still alive somewhere, menacing some black kid for holding a watering can or rolled up newspaper or something."

If I were that interviewer, my follow up question would be: "George, other than staying home that night, can you think of anything else you could've done to avoid the encounter you had with Trayvon Martin?"


"Stayed in my car and waited till the cops got there," leaps instantly to my mind.

I'm sure glad he's getting left alone!

What jobs do you imagine he'd be able to get where he could live his life quietly in peace?

I can perfectly understand trying to milk every money making opportunity I could if I was in his position, since it'd be difficult to know when I'd be able to work a normal job ever again.

Even after getting a not-guilty verdict, plenty of people will only care about their feelings rather than facts and decide he's the worst villain in history since Hitler, and he's tracked by enough people obsessed with him that it probably would have to wear down his sanity as well since he likely has people wanting to take his picture when he just goes to a McDonald's for a burger.

So yeah, seems pretty sensible that he would be concerned about the fact that he can't really be left alone and he still has to do something to make money while  he still can.


OK - I'll bite:  I'm not saying he's the worst villian in history - however, he is one of the most monumentally stupid people in history.  I don't disagree with the verdict in his trial:  The evidence simply wasn't there.  However, if you are trying to present yourself as a person 'just trying to stay above the law and protect people', perhaps beating up your women to the point cops are called isn't a good way to help reform your image, when you KNOW the media is keeping tabs on you.  Perhaps, I dunno....plagiarizing news photos to pass off as 'art' isn't the best way to keep yourself out of the spotlight.  I would take a guess that, maybe...just maybe...if Casey freakin Anthony can manage to keep a low profile...perhaps Zimmerman has that capability as well.

The fact is...he craves the attention -- even if it's negative.   But to whine and complain about all that your own stupidity has wrought, when you clearly have no intention of doing something different to change the course of the life your own ignorance has brought upon you is disingenuous.

they didn't convict him. he broke the law it just didn't get past that jury. they believed his lie. that he was jumped/ambushed. that his head was being smashed on the concrete over and over despite the lack of real physical evidence on his skull to prove it. he had a couple of small scratches and a busted nose is all. I think he tried to detain Trayvon. Trayvon wasn't going to let him and he went for his gun. Trayvon hit him in the nose and they went to the ground. George and he struggled until George got his gun out and killed him.

Morally you are right, but that is technically NOT what was said:
"Dispatcher: Are you following him?"
"Zimmerman: Yeah"
"Dispatcher: Ok, we don't need you to do that."
"Zimmerman: Ok"

Verbatim transcript. Not a single thing changed or clarified.

A normal person would have taken the "we don't need you to do that" as "back off". But some folks have a few marks unchecked on their IQ options.


Yeah, that's one argument I've never understood from the Zimmerman fan club. If a police dispatcher (or anyone, for that matter) said "ok, we don't need you to do that", that would mean "stop" to me. I wouldn't even consider continuing the pursuit. That plays a huge part in why I think Zimmerman is a liar.

That said, the jury got it right; there wasn't evidence to convict.

elysive: Are you saying I would have been correct to turn and start a physical altercation with those people?


There's no credible evidence Trayvon started the physical altercation either. Hardly anyone thinks Trayvon was justified in turning around and randomly beating Zimmerman just for following him. Rather, the theory is that Trayvon did exactly what Zimmerman claimed to have been doing in investigating a suspicious character. A fight somehow broke out.

The thing Trayvon's defamers forget is because Zimmerman was armed with a loaded firearm, any altercation that broke out was potentially lethal for Trayvon. That means Trayvon had the right to use lethal force in his own defense; even unto the point of bashing Zimmerman's head until he lost consciousness or died.

Oh yeah. I forgot. Black kids don't have the right to defend themselves. This is America!

If he really felt threatened he could have fled. I doubt he knew he was armed or he would have never approached him. If he did know he's an even bigger idiot than Zimmerman for starting a fist fight with an armed man.

Oh, please. Zimmerman was found Not Guilty. He took out  a piece of trash. The world is a safer place because of Zimmerman, and no amount of liberal hand wringing or weeping with the symphony of violins is going to change it. Martin attacked Zimmerman. Martin is no longer here. This is not a bad thing. I'd let Zimmerman lead my neighborhood watch any time he wants.

In case you are too ignorant to look it up, the first 911 call was in regards to a fight. That would be Martin attacking Zimmerman like some crazed beast out to sate his only desire: human blood. The next call, within the same minute, was in regards to Martin blocking Zimmermans defensive shot with his chest area, so even the death of Martin is really Martin's fault. Three minutes later, a bystander took pictures of the horrific injuries inflicted by Martin upon Zimmerman, showing it was a clear case of self defense. It is not Zimmermans fault that Martin took a bag of skittles to a gun fight.

From the comments:

These incidents are all that racist black community you know what, cowering under the Barney dust ruffle, on his crib. Just because the chimp family, Obama are freeloading in our, not their, off White House does not make a black boy anything other than what his kind has been (real or simply by perception) for the past..........forever, in this country. Obama is guilty of depraved indifference in each and every one of these tragic cases. He started with his smart mouthed black brutha, in Cambridge......right up to today. Uppity negro, which Barack truly prides himself on being has real and deadly consequences......but he fans the flames of hatred of black, browns, gays toward real American whites. Then when something goes terribly wrong, he runs and hides, hiring MSNBC to do his bidding. Watch a week of Cops and The First 48, then get back to me about it's the white man's fault. I dare you..........you know who you are.

Internet Meme Rogers: He wants to become a lawyer to stop "another miscarriage of justice" like what happened to him. The fark? He got away with murder. So even he thinks he should have been found guilty?


He was charged with a crime he didn't commit by a DA ineptly trying to make her career on a high-profile case (when what he was actually guilty of was manslaughter), and then she tried to tilt the outcome using the media.  That was, actually, an abuse of the legal system.

But yeah, dude's WAY too dim to make it as a lawyer... being kind of on the stupid end of the bell-curve is why the dumbass ended up killing a man he should never have even engaged in the first place, and his personal decisions since haven't done anything to raise my estimation of his IQ.

// And, realistically, without the DA going full throw-the-book at him and  clearly trying to up the ante for her political career, he'd be doing ten to fifteen for manslaughter like most people that start a fight that ends in a dead body.  Actually kind of similar to why OJ got off... if some of the cops hadn't clearly been out to get him, he'd be in jail too.

Let's discuss THE FACTS of this interview.

George Zimmerman was just wanting to be left alone when the drive-by, lamestream MSM mainstream media TRICKED him into giving an interview.  Poor George only wants to be left alone, to watch his neighborhood in peace, but the media won't let that happen.

As further proof, the media is now making him say stupid things AND they're filming the entire thing with cameras and reporting it through their lamestream media outlets.  George just wants to be left alone and box DMX in peace.

Yeah, that's one argument I've never understood from the Zimmerman fan club. If a police dispatcher (or anyone, for that matter) said "ok, we don't need you to do that", that would mean "stop" to me. I wouldn't even consider continuing the pursuit. That plays a huge part in why I think Zimmerman is a liar.

That said, the jury got it right; there wasn't evidence to convict.


What if a police dispatcher told you that, and the next thing that happened was a teenage thug assaulting you from behind, knocking you to the ground and smashing your head into it?  Would it be your fault still because you didn't "stop" enough for some people's satisfactions?

And in civilized states, shooting someone after you escalate a situation is ALSO illegal. Zimmerman stalked Martin. Martin may well have feared for his OWN life, and that's why he started hitting Zimmerman. Zimmerman escalated the situation by continuing to harass Martin. And I guarantee you he would never have said a damn thing to a white kid

As for the bullshiat about Zimmerman being "not white," It's just that- Bullshiat. He IS Hispanic... But Hispanic isn't a race, it's an ethnicity. There are white hispanics, black hispanics, and indian (Native American/ south american) Hispanics. Saying Zimmerman is not white, he's Hispanic is like saying I'm not white, I'm European.

And the bullshiat about "sizzurp" and whatever is just that: complete, fabricated bullshiat. Zimmerman MURDERED a teenager who felt threatened and tried to defend himself against some jackass who was harassing him while he was minding his own damn business.


I can't believe you were there, with an eyewitness account like that, and the prosecution didn't ask you to testify!  That would've been a slam-dunk conviction if only you had the guts to come forward with your story!

Magnanimous_J: I Browse: Zimmerman makes it sound like he encountered a completely unavoidable situation. This wasn't a traffic accident or getting struck with a bolt of lightening or something. He made choices which directly led to all of this. Can he not see that?

Personally, I think both of them were pieces of shiat in their own unique ways and I don't think the cure for cancer is going to die with either of them. But your (strangely common) comment has always baffled me. You make Martin out to be some kind of animal who couldn't be expected to keep his violent impulses at bay. Any person should be able to question a stranger in their own neighborhood without expectation of bodily harm. Does it make him an asshole? debatable, but it's victim blaming to assign guilt to Zimmerman for what was a completely lawful action. Martin taking offense to it doesn't excuse an assault, nor does it make Zimmerman's self defense any less legitimate.

"Don't get out of the car. If you do he will be forced to assault you. It's just their way, and your blood will be on your own hands."


Why did george choose not to introduce himself and ask the kid what business he had in the neighborhood when Trayvon approached his vehicle under the lights at the front of the neighborhood? Why did he choose to roll up his window then follow him through the neighborhood then on foot into a back alley in the dark with his gun instead? Why did he lie about the address as an excuse to go back there?

But that doesn't mean I'm obligated to give the slightest shi*t if his life is an unceasing parade of death threats and physical attacks. In fact, I'm allowed to hope the animal gets threatened and physically attacked every day until he commits suicide. I'm allowed to even express that hope in public forums like these!

And were I to serve on a jury for a person accused of threatening, attacking, or even killing Zimmerman, I would also be allowed to cast my vote however I saw fit. Whether or not I have a "right" to nullify wouldn't even come into issue were I to express any "not guilty" vote only in terms relating to a choice to believe or disbelieve pertinent evidence.

Baz744: elysive: Anyway, Zimmerman won his case based on the evidence provided.

Zimmerman's apologists make too much of his acquittal. It does not mean the man is actually innocent. It just means the state failed to meet its burden of proof.

So let's say a juror interprets "beyond a reasonable doubt" to mean "98% or higher chance of guilt." That juror would acquit even if he believed guilt to a 97% certainty.

As members of the public, we retain the right to believe Zimmerman is guilty.

It occurs to me though, would it make sense to add another option to "guilty" and "not guilty?" What if the options were "guilty," "guilt not sufficiently proven," and "actually innocent?"

Something to think about.


I really dont care if he's guilty or not just as I didnt care that much about OJ going free (he set himself up for that civil suit and ultimately got just desserts).

I would much rather guilty people go free because the govt presents a shiatty case than lower that burden of proof so that we can put innocent people in prison because feelings.  You can call him whatever you want, make up a new classification, knock yourself out, sue him even, but the trial is over and because of double jeopardy you cant try him again. You're spinning your wheels and apparently giving him all the attention he in his AWhoredom desires.

So Zimmerman wasn't following Martin around the neighborhood?

Oh, I must have forgotten the part where following someone was cause for attempted murder.

You don't think that being followed around by a stranger would have made Martin feel threatened?


I've been followed so many times...at night and in inclement weather (the scariest was by a group of young men through an abandoned playground on a snowy Thanksgiving), in cars, on foot. I used to live in Chicago (once in a gang neighborhood) and now I live in a state where there is no permit requirement for CC so the likelihood that one of those people was packing is pretty high. Are you saying I would have been correct to turn and start a physical altercation with those people? I always ran away out of fear of getting robbed or raped or the unknown, including the off chance that it was all in my head, but maybe I was mistaken and I would have been right to try bash their brains in just to be sure.

Do you think that being followed for a few blocks should even be considered stalking? Personally I think it's an insult to the people who actually have to get restraining orders against stalkers due to real threats of violence.

Anyway, Zimmerman won his case based on the evidence provided. Not only should the violence threatening loonies get some ointment for their butthurt and move on, but so should Fark. This constant parade of Zim stories on the main page is ridiculous.

sobriquet by any other name: Baz744: 1) As someone above pointed out, he's almost certainly lying. There's no reason anyone would know who his doctor is... unless he's going around telling people.

It's always possible he's so unpopular that receptionist phoned it in on the side.. you'd want him in your office?

I wouldn't.


It's possible. But I also know people who work in health care live in daily terror of HIPAA. It's a paper tiger, but they don't know that. I doubt very many receptionists would be willing to take that kind of risk.

Any event, we don't have any evidence of it. And Zimmerman has a history of making self-serving false statements. So the best inference is that he's just lying to win sympathy from people stupid enough to believe him.

When Zimmerman wants to paint Trayvon as suspicious while on the phone with police:

"He ran."

Later,  when Zimmerman realized Trayvon running suggested the boy feared him, which could legally work against him:

"Ran? Who said he ran? I sure as hell didn't! He didn't run! He skipped gayly away evincing not the slightest awareness of this world's illusory trifles!"

Other of Zimmerman's Greatest Hits:

"What? Stand Your Ground? Is that like a video game or a band or something? I've never heard of that. I swear!"

Zimmerman had taken and earned an A in a college course with a unit on Stand Your Ground. He was obsessed with personal defense, becoming a police officer, and even patrolling his own neighborhood for unarmed black teenagers. He took martial arts classes. He carried a firearm with him daily. He knew exactly what SYG was, and it was in the forefront of his mind).

"The dispatcher instructed me to get in a place where I could see Trayvon! Yeah, that's it! That's the ticket!"

The dispatcher said no such thing at any time. In fact, quite famously, the dispatcher said almost exactly the opposite.

How the hell do you identify a stranger in your neighborhood unless you are a total psychopath stalking  all your neighbors? I don't even know what my own neighbors look like -- aside from this one guy who used to yell and try to talk to me when I came home/left the house.  One of my boyfriends (the one who lives with me)  spoke to him three times about it before he finally stopped.  He told him more than once, "she is NOT going to respond, you're bothering and upsetting her, and it needs to stop"  I can only imagine what he said to ACTUALLY make it stop, though.


Seriously. I live in a very busy neighborhood. If I were to question every person who walked by who I didn't personally know, I wouldn't have time in my day to get anything else done.

And your neighbor sounds disgusting.

It wasn't wise but following someone isn't  illegal. Beating some one up because you don't want them following you on the other hand.....

had Trayvon been packing and shot Zimmerman in the alley he could have easily gotten off on self defense. If he could have found an impartial jury.


So it's ok to shoot anyone who'se walking behind you?
Really?

a stranger following you home , in the dark,in the rain,a stranger with a gun who would not answer you when you approached his vehicle but rolled up the window and instead followed you in his vehicle and then on foot. yeah that's enough for me to say he had a reason to fear imminent danger.


So it made sense for Trayvon to return to confront the stranger after safely arriving to his destination? It's easy to argue something if you leave out the parts that don't support your argument.

Personally, I think both of them were pieces of shiat in their own unique ways and I don't think the cure for cancer is going to die with either of them. But your (strangely common) comment has always baffled me. You make Martin out to be some kind of animal who couldn't be expected to keep his violent impulses at bay. Any person should be able to question a stranger in their own neighborhood without expectation of bodily harm. Does it make him an asshole? debatable, but it's victim blaming to assign guilt to Zimmerman for what was a completely lawful action. Martin taking offense to it doesn't excuse an assault, nor does it make Zimmerman's self defense any less legitimate.


Yes, I understand that. But Zimmerman now has the benefit of hindsight. And what I'm saying is...given what he now knows, is there anything he could've done to avoid what happened? That's what I'd like to ask him.

I'm not trying to absolve Martin of blame. If he lived and Zimmerman died, I'd ask him the same thing. Given what you know now...is there anything you could've done to avoid what happened? If Martin's answer was "I should've never gone to the store" it would also be a cop out, imo. Because it implies that he had no choices.

Full disclosure...in earlier Zimmerman threads a year ago, I flippantly posted that Martin should've stayed home. My thinking has evolved on this topic since then. There were other choices he could've made to avoid their confrontation as well.

Well, a comment i just wrote in a GOP thread applies here as well -- the mentally ill are not aware of their maladies.  Let's not pretend for a second this man doesn't have at least a couple of mental illnesses. my best guess would be sociopath with an anger management problem, but who really knows?

He clearly doesn't grasp that wanting to be left alone to live a normal life does not go hand in hand with doing interviews with the press claiming to be the true victim when we all know even though he was not found guilty of the charges against him, he's only known for killing an unarmed teenage boy who was smaller than he was. Who wasn't able to present his side of the story, due to being dead.  Maybe go and stay away from the media for awhile.  don't offer to "celebrity' (makes me want to throw up that he'd be considered a celebrity) box black men.  Things like that.  It might help.

But again, the insane are unaware of their maladies.

If he really felt threatened he could have fled. I doubt he knew he was armed or he would have never approached him. If he did know he's an even bigger idiot than Zimmerman for starting a fist fight with an armed man.

Nah, I think he'll kill someone else, and that time, the charges will stick. He's been taken in for menacing people with a gun since the trial ended - it's pretty much his inevitable end, unless something fundamentally changes about him.

In case you are too ignorant to look it up, the first 911 call was in regards to a fight. That would be Martin attacking Zimmerman like some crazed beast out to sate his only desire: human blood. The next call, within the same minute, was in regards to Martin blocking Zimmermans defensive shot with his chest area, so even the death of Martin is really Martin's fault. Three minutes later, a bystander took pictures of the horrific injuries inflicted by Martin upon Zimmerman, showing it was a clear case of self defense. It is not Zimmermans fault that Martin took a bag of skittles to a gun fight.

So in other words, Darwin failed - the fat pussy had a gun, and thwarted natural selection. His artificial appliance allowed him to kill the genetically more fit Martin - who, by rights should have bashed his soft head in and gone on to a happy life of breeding fat white wives of men like Zimmerman in trailer parks just like that one, thus improving the overall human genome.

You do realize that when those kids get caught they usually go to jail or some other correctional facility (if they are underage)... right? You also realize that a black kid killing another black kid isn't likely to be racially motivated... right? You also also realize that a young black gang member is pretty unlikely to claim he was doing it as part of a neighborhood watch initiative (at least not the kind Mr. Zimmy was so enthusiastically participating in)... right?
