    There doesn't need to be. It is what prompted his call to the NEN.

    It does make a difference.

    Note that the University of Princeton did provide a range and that was in the post. I'm the same height as Martin (5'11" per the autopsy report).

    An inch or two might make a difference in 10th's of a mph, it will not double or triple the value.

    Which we know is wrong by, the police report, visual comparison, and how tall the family says he was.
    Or are you forgetting at what a mess-up the ME was?

    Provide the law.

    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.



    Walking


    >>>>
    and at "avg walking speed", it would take less than 10 minutes to walk 1/2 mile. Trayvon took nearly triple that (even if you assume he was not moving during his time on the phone)

    point being: a healthy 17 y/o should be able to walk less than 1/2 mile in well under 29 minutes. IF walking home was all he was doing.

    and remember, it was dark, raining, windy and 53 degrees. hardly the type of weather for a leisurely stroll through the neighborhood. the kind of weather any normal reasonable person would want to get out of as soon as possible.

    Still irrelevant to the fact that a change in height of inches will change the average speed by 10th's of a mile/hr and not double or triple the speed.

    If average walking speed is 3.1m/hr for someone 5'11" then someone 6'0" might be 3.2, it wouldn't be 6 m/hr or 9 m/hr

    normal reasonable people don't stand in the dark, wind, rain and cold to talk on the phone. again, even assuming that Trayvon was not moving at all while on the phone, he still took nearly triple the average time to cover the distance from the 7/11 to the spot where Zimmerman first saw him.
