    I took my semi-annual APFT last weekend and covered 2.5 miles in 30:34. didn't break a sweat and wasn't out of breath.

    So?

    If you have anything to show he was doing something nefarious, please provide it. As you pointed out it was rainy that night, I've often stood in the overhang of strip malls waiting for a bought of rain to pass.



    I'm really no sure what you think the time that a 17 year old takes to walk back home after a trip to the store for ice tea and skittles really means.

    If Martin had been doing his APFT that night, he'd have probably covered that distance in a much shorter time.

    The time Martin spent between 7-11 and the entry point to the Retreat At Twin Lakes is pretty much irrelevant.


    I mean you might think that Martin spent time hanging out and on the phone is some kind of smoking gun, but it's really not.

    all I'm saying is that if he was meandering about or hanging out under building overhangs, such action could reasonably appear suspicious to a passerby.

    And you understand that those charges were reduced to a misdemeanor and then eventually dropped right? Not something that normally happens to someone who actually assaults a police officer.
    You also understand that Zimmerman's actions were of those coming to the aid of a friend who was being accosted, right? Coming to the aid of a friend is a noble act.

    How is that relevant? We've already established that zimmerman following him is irrelevant.

    I am more bored with him than you are.

    I started being bored with him as soon as this came out in the news.

    Your position is the one that is irrelevant as Trayvon could have made it home in the time.
    From the point where Trayvon recognized he was being observed by Zimmerman and then tried to intimidate him by circling him, Trayvon also had more than enough time to make it home if he were actually trying to evade Zimmerman as you alleged.
    But he didn't.
