If Zimmerman straddled Martin and restrained his hands away from his body after he shot him in the heart,(because he felt him hitting him with something in his hands) why when the police arrived were Martin's hands 'under' his body?
Also, why would Zimmerman think Martin only 'heard' the shot when he claims after pulling his firearm, aiming, and shooting, Martin leaned back and said 'you got me'. No wonder the defense didn't want all this out. The more evidence that's released, the bigger the holes in Zimmerman's story get. He needs to plead out now before he falls in one of those holes for life.
Why couldn't his hands be under his body? Further why couldn't Martin say "you got me"after being shot?

To be sure: Romney has the bigot vote, and everyone who has ever dodged the draft.
But the USA is fortunate that there are fewer and fewer pieces of garbage like yourself and you make up but a tiny faction of the population and most of you are too lazy to vote.
Veterans, about 13 percent of the adult population and consisting mostly of older men, support Mitt Romney over Barack Obama for president by 58 percent to 34 percent, while nonveterans give Obama a four-percentage-point edge, according to Gallup.

Black 8, how could you miss it? I wasn't referring to an innocent man. I was referring to George Zimmerman.

According to Jon Gutmacher, criminal defense lawyer and Florida firearms law expert, as of Thursday June 22, there is still no evidence for probable cause to arrest George Zimmerman and he predicts "the case will be dismissed at a proper motion at some time in the future -- and if not -- that decision will be reversed on appeal."

Don't care.

Fewer would support them as they learn he was a draft dodger who hid in France when many of them were serving in Vietnam.

His hands couldnt have been under his body if GEORGE ZIMMERMAN said that he got on Trayvons back to restrain him. George Zimmerman stated he stretched Trayvons arms out to hold his hands down. This is before the police investigation and report that states Trayvons hands were underneath his body. Inconsistencies in his story is the problem here.

WASHINGTON (AP)- Mary Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, has married her longtime partner, Heather Poe.

In a statement, Cheney and his wife, Lynne, said the couple got married in Washington on Friday. The Cheneys said the two had been in a committed relationship for many years and they were delighted that they could take advantage of the "opportunity to have the relationship recognized." The District of Columbia and six states - Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont - have legalized gay marriage.

Mary Cheney and Poe have two children.

In the 2004 election, Republicans backing the ticket of President George W. Bush and Cheney pushed for state ballot initiatives rejecting gay marriage. More recently, President Barack Obama expressed his support for same-sex marriage.

I guess you could say that Cheney has a problem daughter, or a daughter with problems (big time).

Inconsistencies are not uncommon when people are trying to recall the exact sequence and details in a life and death situation.

You weren't lucky - you're just plain lying. No matter - when you have the audacity to say something that stupid, you no longer have any credibility.

And no, if you are pulled over and suspected of driving intoxicated, and refuse a breathalyzer, you will be arrested. And your license is automatically suspended in most states for a minimum of 6 months. Your car will also be impounded. Refusal to take a drug test of any kind while arrested or pulled over on suspicion of DWI is interpreted in almost every state as admission of guilt.

The NRA Crisis…George Zimmerman Held Hostage: Day 19

That is exactly where he belongs, and the NRA is runnin’ scared!

How fitting for someone with a history of Felony Assault on Law Enforcement, Domestic Violence (a wife-beater), Drug Abuse, Perjury, Theft, Thuggery, and the Murder of an Innocent Minor.

Zimmerman is now amongst his own element in his new home.

And all because he didn’t follow directions. Shame, shame Georgie-Boy...
