    His behavior is prompting police response again and again.
    It seems you were implying his guilt simply by him running into the law.

    It is not about his guilt or innocence in this particular instance. Rather it is a question of his nature. If someone has repeated incidents where he is accused of violent or hyper-aggressive behavior, it is highly likely that there is at least some truth to it IMO. He seems to get himself into a lot of trouble because he can not control his temper.

    Might I ask you, do you judge everyone the same in this way? If I were to say, "TM had a tendancy of running into trouble at school and he had no business stopping in front of a random house in the middle of the rain or being GZ to a bloody pulp, and this shows that he behaved like a thug," you'd buy it? Because it is essentially reaching conclusions the exact same way you are about GZ.

    How many times do I have to say I am not judging before you hear me? I am deserving of an opinion and have the same right to share my thoughts without you insisting on labeling, accusing or jumping on me.

    As for TMs behavior, ALL adolescent boys run into trouble that is the time in life where you learn to control yourself and behave in a more socially acceptable way. Unless of course your GZ, then apparently....you just never learn.

    One more thing...it is odd to attack someone for jumping to conclusions by jumping to conclusions and making accusations you do not have enough information to make.

    The difference between you and me is that I don't consider being falsely accused "running into trouble" or "behaving in an unacceptable way."

    You don't know yet if her accusations are false. You are jumping to conclusions.

    The jury is still out on that. There are still multiple accounts floating about ...

    • Chicago Tribune

      O'Mara confirmed Zimmerman had his gun on him. "He was armed ... He put his hand (on the gun) to make sure it was holstered," he said. "He knows how to carry responsibly."

      Police initially took away Zimmerman's gun, but O'Mara said it was later returned to his client.


    • USA Today

      Deputy Police Chief Colin Morgan said officers did not recover a gun, and Bracknell said Shellie Zimmerman later dropped her claim that a gun was involved.

    Oh, non-brother, let's not attempt to re-tell my opinion when I've already given it.

    Admittedly, I didn't think George Zimmerman was innocent, but I certainly didn't want to see him dead. What I wanted was a fair trial where all the evidence was presented and a fair verdict rendered. I got that. Until the guy started mindlessly injecting himself back in the public eye I'd put him out of my memory.

    Ashamed of what? For having an opinion on a storyline based on the information presented? I don't think so...

    All folks seem to be saying is Zimmerman appears to be over exposing himself in the public eye or making some questionable inter-personal relationship decisions post-trial. Moreover, if the media reports were true I'd say it was very valid for people to question his character post-trial. But it would appear his estranged wife lied about event at her home. For his sake, I hope she does end up with additional counts of perjury against her. It would certainly make his life much easier.

    I mean by your post I quoted the topic must be "present an irrelevant hypothetical that allows you to play the victim card." Playing the victim isn't my strong suit so I'll definitely have to work on it.
