When Johnny Depp was young, he was considered a bad boy and he was cute... but it's not the same as seeking an actual criminal to date. And George isn't really criminal. He has never been found guilty of anything. He doesn't have an actual record to my knowledge. Maybe these girl's feel sorry for him or think he is a hero...
And with his subsequent actions, the milquetoast, meek demeanor he maintains in his story becomes less believable.
I still think he showed or Martin saw the gun. THAT would explain Martins actions. There just isn't any prior behavior that supports the theory of an unprovoked murderous attack. Nothing in his texts or emails that suggests anything but youthful preening for girls and pot use (and "drank").
in any case, if TM initiated violence, Z is justified in defending himself.... there's no evidence to contradict the story Z told, so.. umm.. yeah.. there it is.
I don't care about his pot use or "drank" or preening for girls... it's irrelevant to me... it's irrelevant to the case.
