    Good guy? You sound, either very young (like cartoon watching young) or completely unclear on how our justice system is supposed to work. It's not about determining who the good/bad guy is or was.

    Never thought Zimmerman was a "good guy" but that was entirely irrelevant to the fact that the case against him could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt and the jury making the right call despite the media and politicians attempt to rig the trial.

    Just because he obviously has anger issues and possibly mental issues, doesn't mean that the jury was incorrect in their decision in the Trayvon Martin case. Anyone who watched the entire trial with an open mind would've come to the same conclusion as they did.

    I never thought he was a good person. This incident has no bearing on whether his shooting of Trayvon Martin was justifiable, either legally or morally.

    It does confirm my suspicions about Zimmerman's personality though.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Heavy biased on your part question. "Good guy", never even thought about that, then or now, don't know the dude, doubt you do either. I did think he was justified in shooting Martin, and still do. How is what happened to Zimmerman later on influence your opinion of the Martin shooting? What the hell does this have to do with that?

    I'm in agreement with X's view of Zimmerman in general - however this latest incident saw him as the potential victim of a shooting. The poll however is structured to obviously be anti-Zimmerman so for that I'll not partake. Frankly, he'll continue to be a target because of the Martin case outcome...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I don't understand how you can say that. I followed the trial, and it was very obvious that he provoked and escalated the confrontation in the face of direct law enforcement advice to stand down. He was guilty as sin and the jury that acquitted him was on crack.

    The law and a jury didn't see it your way.

    Re: Zimmereman the good guy

    I understand the law quite well....my son is a l.a. county sheriff and I am a field property manager I deal with the law everyday... childish hmmmm I don't make statements about people I don't know like maybe you are prejudice..and I never said you thought zimmerman was a good guy..i guess o.j. was not guilty either lol correct? my statement was about character not the law and the reason he got off.
    I find the lack of logic in humans most disturbing...
