    At the very least we have two different versions of the same event. However, you are correct. Until a full investigation is completed all we have is varying stories of what truly transpired. And unless other eyewitnesses come forward, it's a matter of Mr. Zimmerman's recounting of events, the 911 transcript, "John's" testimony as well as that of Trayvon's girlfriend to put the pieces together as accurately as possible. For my take, Mr. Zimmerman went a step too far, but I'm more than willing to let the evidence come out before saying the justicial system should throw the book at the man and throw away the key when done.
    There are 2 eye witnesses, not just "John." There also is the 13 year old African-American teen.

    Re: Trayvon Martin: Special prosecutor appointed in Trayvon Martin shooting case

    This trial will be like OJ Simpson's with the results be either strongly liked or strongly not liked. There appears to be no grey area of anybody here sitting on the wall on this.

    Unless somebody has taken a video , and wouldn't that be something , I really doubt anyone's view is going to change.

    Bring on the frustration.

    WTF?
    Are you drinking?
    The "other neighborhood watch captain does not judicial system and also doeen't interpret the law.." ? What?
    Do you not understand why the other watch captain was provided?
    I clearly explained it to you.
    And I never relied on his opinion for anything.

    Do you need someone else to explain it?

    No, you're clear enough -- if someone holds an opinion you agree with, then their opinion is relevant, otherwise it's not.

    You couldn't be more wrong.
    If the evidence said that Zimmerman was in the wrong, that is the position I would take.

    That is what you have a hard time understanding isn't it?

    No, I understand just fine. Those with whom you agree you call, "relevant." Those with whom you disagree you call, "irrelevant."

    You've demonstrated this.

    I suspect the federals might try to use a catch-all "violation of civil rights" criminal federal charge - an abstract law that basically allows finding someone guilty of being a racist - during which Zimmerman is held in a very dangerous situation.
    They will probably recommend, a manslaughter charge...

    Zim had no intention of killing the guy, but check this out... HE SHOULD have been aware of the actions (in other words he was reckless), this would fit the definition of manslaughter. No intent to kill Martin but he should have been aware of the danger of his actions and push, Zim for some prison time just to appease the local rabble rousers and race baiters.

    Beside it describing your actions, you are just wrong about me.
    You have said it about this watch captain issue and you were wrong then. And you are wrong now.

    Your wrong.
    Just go to bed and sleep it off.

    But what I see is you are ignoring that he didn't have enough time or even could have been of the mind to concoct a lie that could hold up to scrutiny.
    And the only reason I can see for you doing so is that you are doing so in favor of a preconceived and biased position.
    Come now, evetybody knows that "he attacked me for no reason and I had no choice" is the ONLY story that lets you walk away from shooting someone dead.

    WHEN the two stories came out is pertinent, as the GF mentions the raising of the hood that Zim mentions, but Zim doesn't mention the verbal exchange (at least in what's been released).

    But then no one was immediately aware of the call-in-progress to the girlfriend, afaik.
