Wow.  Amazing that this thread still gets posted on.
This thread will heat back up in a big way in April and possibly in June.  The trial was postponed until June but there is a hearing to possibly dismiss based on the stand your ground statute.  This trial and the fallout from it could be a REALLY big deal before all is said and done - think Rodney King and the LA riots...

No, but it shows a lot about his character...

I updated this thread because it is topical and will become even more so in the coming weeks and months.  At 83 pages and over 1200 posts I'd say it deserves refreshing.

I don't think Myles or anyone else is saying Martin deserved to die, but it looks as if, if Zimmerman hadn't shot Martin (probably wasn't trying to kill him, just wanted him to stop) that Martin could have very well killed Zimmerman, or left him in a coma or worse. We'll never know. I just feel that I'd rather Martin died than Zimmerman (if one of them had to die which again we'll never know) because Zimmerman seems way more innocent than Martin, that's my thinking anyway. That's the whole legal justification for self-defense, I believe, is that if someone is in danger of loss of life or limb, it's better the guilty party be stopped, using up to lethal force if necessary. But you guys all know that, right?

It's obvious that George Zimmerman is a white supremacist(of pure Aryan  descent)who shot a five year old African American child simply because he was a minority.  Well, at least that's what NBC news told me.

How many Black males consider themselves Men at age 17? Probably most. Trayvon himself probably would have been insulted by the "Child" references.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Of course not.
It does, however show that George wasn't following a sweet innocent kid.  I'm talking opinions here, not law.

The only thing the boy was guilty of was "walking while black."    Trayvon was singled out because he was black and wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

Maybe..... but we don't know that.  And my guess is that with people like this "officer" doing stupid things like this, more people are going to be hurt or killed before Zimmerman's trial is over.  Zimmerman has some things to answer for imo.  But the prosecution has over reached, clearly.  He cannot be reasonably convicted of second degree murder according to the legal eagles I've heard discussing it so what happens when they have to let him walk?  You'll have the MSM and all the usual race baiting media whores chanting "no justice, no peace".  It really has a potential to get quite ugly this summer.

guilty of being a stupid kid with an attitude and apparently a short temper. Not worth killing someone for, but not worth killing Zimmerman either (Which is reportedly what Trayvon was working on when he was shot).

If I saw him (Trayvon) moving around between the buildings (Which is what was reported.) I'd call the cops too. I'd not go confront or follow him, but I can't say that what Z did was wrong when he went out after him, and in trying to determine if he was an actual burgler or not.
