It may show that they are troubled teens, but not aggressive nor violent teens. Zimmerman IS and has been PROVEN to be both aggressive and violent, and that's what it boils down to. Who was the one to start the altercation between the two of them, and if Zimmerman had just cause to shoot Martin. I don't feel he did. I feel he CAUSED the altercation and then shot Martin with no solid reason to do so, thus committing a murderous act. Zimmerman could have prevented the altercation by SIMPLY going back to his truck the way he said he was going to do, instead of approaching Martin. None of this would have happened if he did that. He was the instigator in this case, and should be tried for the crime he committed, no matter what Martins past was regarding marijuana and spray painting.<quoted text>
Yes I know, we've been down that road before. Everything negative about Martin is just as significant as anything GZ may have done 7-8 years ago. Martin also had a violent background when he had an altercation with a bus driver.....Martin had plenty of time to get himself in the house.

Don't tell me what I said...I said they did not. That would be tampering with evidence..if they picked them up and put them in his pocket. Show me ? If you recall that's what one of your Traythug followers said. NOT ME! So STFU

Great link, Sally. thanks! I did not watch the videos (I'm at work and streaming is frowned upon) and besides I don't think I could have tolerated all those screaming apes. I DID read all the comments and it is obvious that Sanford residents are wholeheartedly behind George Zimmerman. Honestly, I hadn't seen anything but your posts indicating how the locals up there were feeling about all this.

Yeah? Where is YOUR law degree? A person doesn't just "get" a law degree. You actually have to get your pre-law degree and pass. Are you ashamed that you weren't able to do so yourself? So you accuse someone who is able to practice law with being able to do so only because of "affirmative action"? You are a joke. You probably didn't even graduate high school.

I guess he was "experimenting" with trying to kill a guy when he was pounding Zimmerman's head on the ground. Crump looks/acts/talks like a street thug himself.......affirmative action got THAT loser into law school, I'm betting.

Oh please. Many blacks just "got" degrees with affirmative action when they didn't even qualify for entry to the colleges. Gotta have that quota of minorities, you know! Crump rants and raves a la Sharpton and Jackson and is clearly looking to make this a racial issue. He's sickening to any decent person. Almost as sickening as his corpse-sucking clients.

When you listen to all the 911 calls that were made before the murder of that child, it becomes clear that the shooter, George Zimmerman was an unstable gun-hugging right-wing bigot that was looking for a confrontation just for a reason to use his weapon… you also hear a terrified child screaming for his life before he was shot to death.
Why hasn’t this guy has been arrested for 1st degree murder of a child?

The call that says it all....

GZ blindly walking around his neighborhood checking on things and getting jumped by TM would have been a much more believable scenario.

GZ allowing himself to be ambushed/sucker punched/caught off-guard/whatever by someone he tagged as trouble seems ridiculous and foolhardy.

His actions were moronic, at best.

Remember in the 7-11 footage Martin had the button pinned on his hoodie when he left the store. In his pocket at the crime scene was the button along with the 7-11 lighter etc. There's an explanation for that, and I'll get back to you on that.
Yeah, please do.

In a narrative somewhere, it specifically states, that there was a grey sweatshirt with a button on it. The earbuds were "in the vicinity of the victims body". I think it was written 2-3 March. A couple weeks before any thing went to the crime lab. Which, in itself, is telling.

They are just all grouped together in some convoluted sentence that seems to be missing words. But, yeah, get back to me. I wish nothing was redacted.

Everybody knows you use a lighter to get Irish pennants off your clothes. ;)

The report by Sanford police officer Christopher Serino says Martin had $40.15, Skittles candy, a red lighter, headphones and a photo pin in his pocket. It was also in the ME report.
