Was that gated community paying to have george carry a gun during his crime watching.
Previous references to Zimmerman as a “watch captain” of a non-existent group, perhaps a “watch private” or “watch corporal” have not been able to be confirmed.
As yet, no other members of Zimmerman’s watch, the one he told police he was captain of, seem to exist.
And this is fine. Neighborhood watch isn't the SWAT team. It is just neighbors looking for suspicious activity. And I don't think he was paid.

You were the one who said there was not a murder charge. I explained that there was indeed a murder charges Read my post idiot. He is going to be tried on the murder charges. The murder charges you said didn't exist.
No one said he has been convicted. You are the only one saying that.
The defense attorneys are responsible for postponing the trial. You don't know anything for a fact. The actual date of the trial is worked out in a case management hearing with both sides having input before the judge.
WRONG AGAIN. You just can't get anything right can you?
Now, now zazzi, no need to resort to name calling.

For someone who likes to accuse others of being “WRONG” you make a lost of claims without offering a bit of confirmation… but I guess it is easier for you that way.

I have mentioned Zimmerman has NOT been “convicted” of murder, I have mentioned that the Sanford police, wanted to “charge” him with murder; I have said the charge of murder has not been determined by the courts, but I don’t recall ever saying Zimmerman had not been charged with murder… If I did obviously I was in error -

And since you claim so emphatically claim I did make that statement, I’m sure you will have no problem finding and posting my quote or informing us all what the post number is so we can all see for ourselves.

We will all be eagerly awaiting your reply.

But I don't recall stating he has been convicted AND he hasn't been charged... its actually kind of silly when you think about it.

Please point that out to us as well, I believe I posted “others” have appeared to convict Zimmerman in the court of "public opinion", at least that’s the impression I get when someone states:‘They “personally” think he is guilty of murder,”, or “Zimmerman was there to murder him,”?, or perhaps:“I don't like murderers. I especially don't like racist murderers, they are more vile than plain murderers,” to someone who posted under the alias Captain Zimmerman? To me that sounds very much like a pronouncement of guilt… except for the minor fact of him not being tried yet.

I take it you don’t have a lot of court or legal experience?

And a criminal charge is not the same as the conviction that I would think be required to make the accusations of someone being a murder a fact.

<quoted text>
You pretend to be smart and it doesn't work well for you. Accept your limitations.
The charge of murder HAS been determined. Murder in the second degree.
The only thing left is for the trial so that a jury can determine his guilt or acquit him. His attorney says his task is so difficult he needs a year to prepare his defense.
Um, excuse me, murder has been “charged” it has not been “determined”, I thought we already went over this?

http://www.topix.com/forum/us/TKPEED6J6ONM651...

I believe that is what the trial, you know that guilty or not guilty thing is for… If murder had already been determined, there would be no need for a trial, would there?

Recently there was a capital crime case I happen to have personal knowledge of. The defendant committed the crime in full view of about a dozen law enforcement officers and still it took more than a year prepare for and complete the trial phase. As I said, this is not something all that uncommon in capital offense cases.

I am aware of my limitations – perhaps you should consider taking some of your own advice.

Just a thought.

Someone challenges me to post a reply that seems to indicate that Zimmerman should be killed, I did:

Also, let's NOT be stupid. I know exactly what this thread is for.
What your ignorant ass needs to understand is that people are up on here calling others names, telling them nasty things, and other unmentionables. They were not directing them toward Zimmerman. They were directed toward other posters. It's been going on long before you decide to join in here.
Stop being stupid. I'm quickly tiring of your antics.

So you apparently responded with <quoted text> “You fool. That's not directed at Zimmerman.”…

But you have no idea what post number it is and ask me to supply it?

“I see”; said the blind man, and he picked up his hammer and sawed.

Funny how the teenager was convicted without a trial or even an arrest.
What we all can be sure of is: the thug Zimmerman is a perjurer, as his wife.
Do you want to wait until he's convicted of this- even though we all saw it on film?
Or can we stick with the less legal description of an outright liar?
I am thinking someone who goes to a bail hearing and flat out lies about his assets should be (if not kept in jail) looking at $1.5 million or so.

It's hard to explain things to him. He suffers from either dementia or Alzheimer I'm not sure which. But I am sure that he has lost his reasoning abilities and has very little comprehension.
You might need to tell him a dozen or more times.
My, my… a tag team effort, I feel so special ~

Barefoot, Martin was not convicted – he was simply executed. Now, at whether that execution was justifiable, that has yet to be determined.

Zimmerman cannot be a perjurer – if he never made a statement in court, think about it…

Just to help things along:

<quoted text>
perjury
n. the crime of intentionally lying after being duly sworn (to tell the truth) by a notary public, court clerk or other official. This false statement may be made in testimony in court, administrative hearings, depositions, answers to interrogatories, as well as by signing or acknowledging a written legal document (such as affidavit, declaration under penalty of perjury, deed, license application, tax return) known to contain false information. Although it is a crime, prosecutions for perjury are rare, because a defendant will argue he/she merely made a mistake or misunderstood.
http://dictionary.law.com/Default.aspx...

I don’t know what you “saw”, but all I saw was Zimmerman’s attorney making a statement to the court about the Zimmerman’s financial status being of “limited means”.

Of course if you have a link to what you saw, I’d be happy to watch it and afterward tender my apology if required.

And zazz, some times it is indeed hard for me to understand how some tend to post here… for your sake, I will attempt to be a little more bias, offer fewer sources for reference, speak opinion as though they are irrefutable facts and attempt to ‘dumb-down’ a little.
