    Moderator's Warning:
    George Zimmerman Arrested Again In Central Florida [W:351]As would be expected, this topic is quite inflammatory. I would remind you all to stick to the topic, which is not each other and stop the flame/baiting as well.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

EVEN if you feel the guy is "racially profiling" you. Just move on. No need to lose your life over that.

    agreed?

    Because he thought he was being followed. Is that enough to jump someone? that is open to debate

    what's not open to debate is that a stranger might be a crazy person, and if you are the aggressor in a physical confrontation with a stranger(for whatever reason), you may lose your life AND the person you attacked might avoid jail. That's just life. Fairness is no factor here.

    It's as I said after the trial, Zimmerman may have been found not guilty, but the verdict had more to do with the lack of evidence to support the crime (not to mention the lack of witnesses, terrible prosecution tactics, and very naive and self-centered witness for the prosecution). There were just too many blanks that didn't get filled to come to a guilty verdict. The jury had to let him go.

    Personally, I'm not looking for Zimmerman to go to jail as some kind of vandetta for him allegedly getting away with murder. I stand by my previous position that he had his day in court and was found not guilty by a jury of his peers. I just keep asking myself, "Is this guy really a victim? Does he really have it that bad with the ladies? Is he really that stupid to keep getting himself in trouble or placing himself in this situations where he knows that even the slightest violation of the law will eventually land on national news where his name is concerned? Or is he crazy like a fox?

    Ah, so what you're saying is that the police who defended him when he killed a black kid, won't defend him now that he's threatened a white woman? You're right. It is different now.

    They were, and are, two different things.
    Your distinction base on race is absolutely absurd and inflammatory.

    I never said anything about waiting in ambush. but the timeline clearly shows he either stopped and waited or doubled back. otherwise he would have been home before zimmerman ever saw him again

    An alternate scenario is that after attempting to evade the weird dude in the pickup truck that was following him around the complex (once by walking away from the clubhouse and the second by running away from the vehicle), Martin ran behind the buildings and having broken visual contact thought that was the end of it. So while on the phone with his female friend he's telling her what was going on. Zimmerman having exited the vehicle began his search and found Martin in the rear of the building. Martin attempts to leave again and drops his phone as Zimmerman grabs him and saying he's not going anywhere. Martin surprises Zimmerman buy fighting back and Martin gets a good shot into Zimmerman's face.
    except for the fact that the friend on the phone never said anything about zimmerman saying "you're not going anywhere".

    It's probably the fact that you needlessly brought race into the mix earlier
