Interesting snipits from the article...

The Sanford Police Department said officers were prohibited from arresting Zimmerman the night of the shooting because physical evidence and testimony supported his claim that he acted in self-defense. The police department gave the explanation to City Manager Norton Bonaparte, who included it in a letter to the community about the case, posted on the city’s website.

“Zimmerman’s statement was that he had lost sight of Trayvon and was returning to his truck to meet the police officer when he says he was attacked by Trayvon,” the police said in the letter posted by Bonaparte.

Sonner says his client was injured that night with a broken nose and a serious cut on the back of his head. He said the injuries “were from Trayvon Martin, I assume.”

To those who jumped on this bandwagon, the truth will not matter, there mind is made up this was racism, by Zimmerman, the police and witnesses, no amount of truth will sway them.

Errr, I don't know Florida law but here in Texas, SYG applies wherever you are.

This is gotten so out of whack, because of the race whores. Zimmerman is hispanic, when is that group going to show up and demand justice for Zimmerman.
There are black neighbors coming to his defense, one has to wonder why they are being ignored.

Zimmerman used excessive force. It was a mutual fist fight and he only has his nose bleeding. THe same you would see outside any bar. Trayvon had no weapon, he was just throwing punches.

maybe if zimmerman was a woman, he would have more legs to stand on. she could say she thought it was a sexual attack.

Words matter. Definitions matter. Understanding the applicable law matters - especially if you're an attorney. Sounds like Zimmerman needs a new lawyer.

In Florida the Castle Law applies to defending your home. The Stand Your Ground Law applies everywhere else - even your front yard. If you're outside your house Stand Your Ground is the applicable law.

When you enhance noise you get enhanced noise. They want Zimmerman to be a racist so bad that they are trying to enhance his breathing and turn it into a Beetles album. When they play it in reverse and hear strange demonic musings you’ll know it’s time for the white coats.
