    That isn't correct.
    Zimmerman knows and has stated that it was Trayvon.
    And Zimmerman came across as believable to the investigators.

    Wow. I had no idea that they were re-testing the ESP program in the Army.

    I described what I think because I wanted to. Sorry if you took that to mean I wanted to date your sister.
    Well, my sister is a lesbian. already engaged, though.

    That being said, it appears you didn't describe what you think at all - at the very least, very little thought was present in your original post. You may be better off defending yourself by saying it is what you felt, as feelings are not expected to be subjected to logical rigor .

    Get over yourself dude. I don't care what you think.
    except that obviously you do because you felt the need to pre-describe and attack it, and now you feel the need to keep responding.

    I don't see how the amount of time Martin was out is relevant. The most relevant part is the encounter. Who threw the first punch? That's what is relevant. Since we don't know, there is reasonable doubt. You don't convict when there is reasonable doubt.

    fwiw, I can walk 2.5 miles in 29 minutes and I'm a 50 y/o man with two bum knees.
    2.5 miles in 29 minutes is not average walking speed. Average walking speed it 5 Km/Hr (3.1 m/hr) in the range of 4.5 Km/Hr to 5.4 (Km/Hr).

    If you are doing 2.5 miles in 29 minutes then you are doing about 8 Km/Hr (5 m/hr) which is well above average walking speed.


    I'm 54 years old and have a treadmill and workout at least 4 for nights a week, that workout being a 3 mile walk and it typically takes 58-63 minutes. The idea that average walking speed is 5 miles per hour is bogus.

    Yes, he wasn't.
    He left out the part where Trayvon was seen looking into homes, which is not him simply walking home either.

    The amount of time Martin was out isn't relevant, some though want to use it to imply that there is something wrong with someone using the time to walk home to have a private conversation with a female friend.

    Yes, state laws vary on the one year sentence. However, Federal laws dictate those convicted on domestic violence charges get a lifelong gun ban.


    Expungement may change that. But, those only work for people convicted of a single offense. Z strikes me as a recidivist.

    Have you compensated for Trayvon's height?
    It does make a difference.

    Any confirmation of this besides the story told by the man that did the shooting?
