President Obama already has Marshal law as he is their boss.

It's Trayvon's fault he got shot, it's his parent's fault they are trying to blame everyone else for their son's actions and when it's apparent they weren't too concerned that he turn out to be a repected member of society before the shooting or he would have been too busy being punished for what he had done before to be out running around that night. So before the parent's go around trying to blame others they need to check themselves first. What did they do to make sure things turned out differently? NOTHING, but they sure as hell are on hand to trademark shit and make a profit off their failure now aren't they?
How do you know he wasn't punished?

And now you blame them for the King Captain killing (allegedly murdering, according to the state of Florida) their son.

No, only King Captain Zimmerman (the alleged Murderer who had an ex-hoe) is responsible for his own actions. He's a 28 year old adult who knows right from wrong.

Ohhhhh, if only Mr. T could talk to the King Captain. I can just hear Mr. T.....

I read where he expects his legal fees will be $1,000,000.
Interesting that he thought GZ was indigent when he took his case. I think he was impressed with how much money GZ collected in such a short time. I think that's where he got the idea, copying Captain Zimmerman.
I still want to know how he spent over 50K in just a few days and what he spent it on.
I read the same thing about the fees also. Guess now that there's money to be made, O'Mara will cut back on the public dissertations and mount a "real" defense.

As for the missing 50k, I'm sure a lot of the money went to his "security detail."

But he doesn't deserve to keep a dime of any residue regardless of the outcome of the case.

<quoted text>It does matter, government had no authority to order zimmerman to do anything, government had every interest to sever liablity from zimmerman's actions. Had the government ordered Zimmerman to sit in his vehicle and not do anything, and Zimmerman had become a murder victim as a result of those police orders, the police would have been found liable for Zimmerman's death. The only time that police can order people to do anything is when they are directing traffic, in times of emergency or when they made an arrest.
Zimmerman is indicted for murder and most likely will be found guilty, regardless. I'm just telling you, there was no cease and disist order from the government in that statement made to Zimmerman.
I don't give a rats ass about any of that. It does not change the fact that Zimmerman was following Martin. The only thing it shows is Zimmerman was acting completely on his own. But you still haven't told me where the truck was parked and where Zimmerman was when he stopped. Keep in mind he said "OK" 13 seconds after leaving his truck. Did he continue following Martin after he said OK? Where was he when he hung up with the cops?

The law that allows a citizen of this country to carry a weapon for self defense is what was given by our founding fathers.
You can't just take the ability to own and carry a gun away. It is not yours or any politicians right to do that.
Just think if Zimmerman had not had a gun Treyvon may very well be alive today. And......Zimmerman may have died from a beating by a 6 foot plus gangsta wanna be thug named treyvon.

lol! Let's blame his parents for having Zimmerman stalk Martin and shooting him at point blank range with Zimmerman's weapon too.

In fact, why don't you absolve Zimmerman of any responsibility for killing another human being.

There... so much for Zimmerman's personal responsibility.

If Zimmerman didn't have a gun the little puss would have sat in his truck and waited for the cops. Which is why the neighborhood watch programs don't want watchers carrying guns. It seems that Zimmerman's courage either comes out of a barrel or a bottle.
