Then again, Zimmerman could have simply slipped and fallen.
He did slip and fall after tm punched him in the nose for pushing tm in the chest. Getting hit in the middle of your nose will cause both eyes to blacken. The cuts on his head are minor from falling and hitting his head. The head will bleed profusely from the smallest cuts! It was not a severe beating by far!!! There was only one tiny cut on tms left ring finger knuckle.

Youll are wrong. Martin was carrying legal identification for a black thug when he was shot. The coroner found a 4" turd in his sagging pants! Due to the manner in which he had adjusted the pants below his butt the Official ID had slipped to behind the left knee and was missed by the police on the scene! Stanford Police are now undergoing seminars on the correct way to ID kneegroid criminals!

Thats a new scenario. Zimmerman slipped and fell and broke his nose, cut his face, blacked both eyes, injured his back and cut his head and MARTIN WAS KILLED BY A PICHOCHET BULLET ACCIDENTALLY DISCHARGED! YES YES YES ACCIDENTAL DEATH!
Unfortunately for you, that's not what Zimmerman is claiming.

Poof! There goes that theory.

41% of Americans think Zimmerman shot Treyvon in self defense, 29% think Zimmerman shouldn't have fired. The rest don't care I guess. At trial there isn't evidence of 2nd degree murder, so Zimmerman will be acquitted, and the black folks will probably riot. That will just be another reason to vote Obama out, because he encouraged a charge be made when no evidence was there

you people all seem to be more interested in promoting your view than in finding the truth. and many of you seem to have racist and ethnic prejudices behind your views. I could not trust anyone's opinion here. there is too much emotionalism and venom in the comments.

They probably will riot. Anybody having the location and time please post here so me and a couple friends can rent a house in the area to take advantage of live targets. Surely the Dept of Wildlife and Fisheries wont hold you to a limit. One big Gadsen Flag will mark the spot!
