And YET if his purpose was to get away...why would he turn around within 100 yards of his home? Are you just going to gloss over the part of the trial that showed that Trayvon was attempting to confront Zimmerman as well? Or does that not fit the narrative of evil white man killing young black boy?Martin attempted to evade twice, walking away from the clubhouse and then running away from the vehicle and in both cases Zimmerman pursued.
You didn't watch the trial? There was evidence to back that claim up. Ok top of that. Let's discuss the more disturbing fact.There is no evidence of that except Zimmerman's say so.
You are claiming his testimony is the only one. So what is your reason for denying him testimony. Furthermore...you want him convicted of manslaughter based on WHO ELSE's testimony? On what grounds? What evidence? Or is this more of the "public opinion" court?
Why are we rejecting his testimony? On what grounds?There is no evidence of that except Zimmerman's say so.
A story told over a length of time is subject to change. BUT it really doesn't matter does it? Who had left the scene and returned? It wasn't Zimmerman. I won't argue that what he did was incredibly stupid. That doesn't make him a murderer. That doesn't make him a criminal. It just makes him stupid.Again, where is the independent source for any of that prior to "John" looking out the back? There is none, that is all based on Zimmerman's story.
Zimmerman story (read his statement and watch the interrogation video's again) was that he went behind the darkened house to find a street sign - well there are no street signs behind houses. There were not any street signs on the other side of the pass through either. The only street signs were to that (a) west, and (b) south of where Zimmerman exited his truck. He traveled east. Oh wait, house number that was it, he was looking for a house number. Sorry no house numbers behind houses either, as a matter of fact he walked by the front of houses with house numbers posted to proceed to the rear.
Seriously. Make a case for manslaughter. Do it. Please. And what lies are we discussing? Because lying in court is perjury and I don't recall any conviction on that either?Don't get me wrong, the jury made the correct call. The prosecution over charged the event (Murder 2 over Manslaughter) and presented a very, VERY weak case in court. Not finding Zimmerman guilty was the correct verdict. However, just because someone believes it was the correct verdict does not mean that they have to believe Zimmerman's story(ies). An individual shown to be willing to lie to the court.
