    trayvon was less than 100m from home. he was out of zimmerman's sight for nearly 4 minutes. it was dark. he could have almost crawled home on his hands and knees in that time. he chose to stop and confront Zimmerman on a darkened sidewalk.

    yes, you are. You don't have the right to attack people if you don't like what they say. You have a right to say nigger all you want. Nobody has a right to beat your ass for it.
    And I'm part black.

    trayvon had a right to be there and be walking around. zimmerman had a right to be there and broke no laws by following him. trayvon did not have a right to punch zimmerman in the face or climb on top of him after he'd knocked him to the ground.
    In all fairness, we don't know who threw the first punch. But there is reasonable doubt. You never convict when there is reasonable doubt

    And this all seems right to you? This is why the laws are bs. Its an exploitation of the law, one that so many on the right seem to support, even enjoy.

    we know that Zimmerman had physical injuries consistant with being punched. Trayvon did not. based on the evidence, Zimmerman never laid a hand on Trayvon.

    I'm sure if somebody followed your wife around while armed you'd be cool with it, right?

    I never said it seemed "right". It was a tragic comedy of errors on the part of both Zimmerman and Martin.

    point being. if Trayvon was afraid, he would/should have gone home. he did not. he chose to stop and wait in the dark for Zimmerman.
    In order to, as could be argued, teach that "creepy ass cracker" a lesson
    for daring to follow him.



    If the reports that we see in the news about Mr Zimmermans activities since the trial are anywhere close to accurate Mr Z still hasn't learned that violence is not the only answer.

    I noticed that the title of this thread isn't "George Zimmerman arrested...." , It's "George Zimmerman arrested again ......"




    The man obviously has a problem.

    Well, that's where reasonable doubt comes in. I agree with the ruling.

    Though, zimmerman could have pushed trayvon. Or shoved him. At that moment, trayvon had the right to kick his ass and zim would be at fault. Though we don't know any of that.

    I'm sure my wife wouldn't be wandering around in the dark, in the rain, in a strange neighborhood...even though she has the right to do so
