I bought a box last night - no kidding. They are packaged in many ways. Like others though, I can’t find any evidence he actually had Skittles or iced tea...and no still shot of him at the gas station....was he really just wandering around the neighborhood? Did the lawyer make up the candy run story?

What does Florida's “Stand Your Ground“ law have to do in a situation where your attacker is on top of you breaking your head open on the concrete under you?

Did Zimmerman shoot Martin while Martin was on top of him? I don't recall any reports of Zimmerman having blood on his clothes, just blood on his head from his own injuries.

Re: Autopsy Report

Last I read, the autopsy report is still sealed.

My political instincts say if Martin showed no trace of drugs, someone would have leaked that to the press.

But, that’s a 100% guess.

I’ve also thought it’s possible that Martin might be positive for marijuana.

That would be a huge political black mark.

The ONLY reason Martin was in Sanford was because he got a school suspension for possession.

But, once again, just a guess.

You normally make a lot of sense but that post was muddier than the Mississippi. What PC? The SYG law does require that the “reasonable man” standard be applied. Estrich is saying that it doesn’t. There is no PC in my thoughts and Estrich is full of crap. Please explain what you mean.

>> “This article is a hit piece on SYG laws disguised as reasonableness about the Martin/Zimmerman incident. Her apparent honesty about the law is cover for a political agenda.” <<

.
That’s it in a nutshell.

The local cops say he was arrested, and I hesitate to argue with them, since I am no longer in Jr. High.

Please provide a link to your source for that. Shouldn't be too hard since you're not in Jr. High anymore.

Here is what the City of Sanford said...

Why was George Zimmerman not arrested the night of the shooting?

When the Sanford Police Department arrived at the scene of the incident, Mr. Zimmerman provided a statement claiming he acted in self defense which at the time was supported by physical evidence and testimony. By Florida Statute, law enforcement was PROHIBITED from making an arrest based on the facts and circumstances they had at the time. Additionally, when any police officer makes an arrest for any reason, the officer MUST swear and affirm that he/she is making the arrest in good faith and with probable cause. If the arrest is done maliciously and in bad faith, the officer and the City may be held liable.

DO I trust the media to actually sort this out? No way. Wish I had some dough to put up an animated reconstruction based solely on the 911 calls on youtube. Every now and then I lament not being rich enough. It would be $5000 well spent.

Thank you. People are quick to give Estrich the benefit of the doubt without looking at what she is really saying. She is making nice about the Martin/Zimmerman incident while making a case for more gun control and repeal of the SYG law. And she lied about SYG to do it.
