    I think Zimmerman would have pulled the gun if Trayvon backed off in that case. And if Trayvon ran again, Zimmerman would have believed even more that Trayvon was a felon. that's why he should have stayed in the car, or at least been more careful of making assumptions and faulty conclusions.

IMHO, Martin crossed the line when he got on top of Zimmerman and continued to pound away on a virtually helpless person. At that point, Zimmerman had every right to fear that Martin would not stop beating him until he was dead or unconscious.

    he's the one that brought race into this discussion and in a clearly negative manner. So I am lost on how anyone is being unreasonable here. Would you feel the same if I accused him of simply supporting Martin because he was black? of course not, you would be howling about it

Is that something a person would want to deal with?

    If the answer is "yes, no, no" then there might be a reasonable basis for why the guy doesn't like dealing with the police. That isn't a defense of anything he has done, that merely pointing out no reasonable person would want to deal with national headlined everytime they interact (not even arrested) with law enforcement.
    Well, I don't think it should have been a story to begin with, but it is, sadly, and unfortunately as is so often the case in media circuses people choose sides in ways they never would have otherwise. Reason being the story latched on to one of our many fabulous hot button issues that turn people's brains off and the volume of their shouting to 11. Had this not been hijacked into the gun rights debate Zimmerman would just be just like every other low life thug out there.

    Anyway, if he gets out of jail (he might actually be out of jail, already, I'm not keeping up with the story), he'll go right the hell back, because low lifes will be low lifes.

    Your low life accusation is not supportable.
    Nor is acting in self defense as he did being a low life.

    I will let his comment stand on its own merits.

    I have no illusion that I possess the power to change anyone's mind about anything .. thus, how you interpret stand your ground is purely up to you .. interpret them anyway you choose. But for me, they represent an evil reminiscent of America's ****-stained racist past. I equate the murder of Trayvon Martin to that of Emmitt Till .. reinforced the further murder of an innocent woman stranded by car problems.

    As with most laws, it's less about the law itself, than it is about the application of the law.

    Nail in coffin forever.

    Which has absolutely nothing to do with the points we are discussing: Which is "why would someone like Zimmerman be weary in his interactions with the police". When I offered an explanation for this, you replied with some moronic argument that totally ignored the issue at hand, just like you did above.

    Reason being the story latched on to one of our many fabulous hot button issues that turn people's brains off and the volume of their shouting to 11. Had this not been hijacked into the gun rights debate Zimmerman would just be just like every other low life thug out there.
    1)So the issue turned into a media fire storm solely over gun rights? Lol, you are too much.

    2) how does this address anything I wrote above?

    Anyway, if he gets out of jail (he might actually be out of jail, already, I'm not keeping up with the story), he'll go right the hell back, because low lifes will be low lifes.
    Lol, where have I defended the man's character? I have been pretty clear on the point that I think he's a complete dumb-ass. But that changes nothing about how every time he interacts with the police a GIANT **** STORM ENSUES, and that it's something anyone would not want to deal with.

    Can you actually respond to what people write, or is everything pre-filtered into this mindless partisan non-sense

    Well it would be interesting to see how that pans out since in the Trayvon Martin trial the judge refused to allow text messages and such as evidence since [as she decided] it was impossible to prove that Trayvon was the one who sent those texts from his password locked app on his password locked phone. Sometimes "precedence" can lead to strange ironies.

    Your partisanship radar needs to be recalibrated. It seems to be all you see.

    Before the end of 2014 he's going right back to jail. Would you like to make a friendly wager?
