Facts are irrelevant. Evidence is meaningless. Zimmerman is guilty... < /race hustling poverty pimp meme>

Zimmerman is getting Rodney Jeweled.

A statement from Sanford, Florida police said the newspaper story was "consistent" with evidence turned over to prosecutors.

That's about as close as the cops can come to saying "cut him loose."

Their job is not to determine guilt or innocence, remember.

Is Zimmerman a public figure? Can he sue people (Sharpton) for stating that he is a racist murderer? His future has been ruined as far as employment goes (who’d want the risk?)

what this has shown besides the obvious like obama, race baiters and a wanna be gangster is that we have some freepers who came on here right away attacking Zimmerman and saying he was guilty and it also shows that we have those same freepers which I would never want on my jury or that they are taken in by the MSM even knowing that the MSM is left wing.

So to those who have made fools of themselves attacking Zimmerman then you lot are no better than the left wing loons and race baiters who sit there and watch their local news and think they are being told the truth.

As for facts, well what does Mum care as she is in DC, staying at a nice hotel , now making money like never before and the black community is stoked up and prepared for the summer just as the occupy flea wearers are.

This summer will show all the ground work the race baiters and the white house has done.

Also I hope all of us have sent mail in to FOX and other local channels telling them to show updated photos of this wanna be gangster and Zimmerman not the old photo’s of a chubby little kid.

Also where is the Hispanic groups crying for justice for Zimmerman is it because his name is not Lopez?

He's not a public figure. He's got tenable defamation suits coming out of his ears by now, especially against the press.

If I were him I’d be suing the black panthers, Sharpton, Jackson and some in the MSM who ignored the facts and were quick to condemn our FL laws , the justice system and Zimmerman.

Shame on those Hispanic groups here who have not come out to demand that Zimmerman have his due process and denounce these race baiters.

Also I’d be going after the DOJ for ignoring this hate, Holder for not doing something AGAIN about these black racists and I;d be asking if anything can be done about obama, even when he gets out of office.

“Their job is not to determine guilt or innocence, remember.”

Ideally, but in fact the police have the means to suppress or fabricate evidence if they choose to, and thus determine the outcome of a trial or even determine if a trial takes place. This is why police officers are required to testify in court like any other witness, as opposed to just taking the evidence and their statements at face value.

He sure can. In fact, because he's not a public figure, he is spared the necessity of proving malicious intent, which is the high legal bar set for most libel cases. When this is over, he can go to town on all of them, whoever has the deepest pockets.

I hope he does better than Richard Jewell, who got bupkis after being falsely convicted in the press of being the Olympic bomber in Atlanta.

You mention Sharpton. I don't think he ever paid off the settlement to the NYPD cops he libeled in the Brawley case.

He has a defense. He said he didn't know the facts. So, everything following ends up being nothing more than a demonstration of his lack of good judgment.

The special prosecutor, appointed by the gubbernor Scott is black.

What if she ends up agreeing with the Sanford cops and doesn't press charges?

First off who is this "wanna-be" gangster you are referring to? And if you want to discuss "wannabe's" perhaps you need to include Zimmerman in the "wannabe" group as he has exhibited all the signs of being a "wannabe" cop.

Still one question remains unanswered: Why did Zimmerman leave his truck to follow or otherwise confront Martin? Wasn't Zimmerman WARNED not to follow Martin by the police dispatcher? Why did Zimmerman choose not to take that advice?

The case seems to be easy to make that had Zimmerman just WATCHED instead of choosing to pursue Martin the gun play would never have occurred?

Your response please

The Panthers and inner city youths will riot not matter what. Even if Zimmerman may be only be charged with discharging a firearm in a residential area.

And then let’s listen to the eye-witness account. This Trayvon character is a thug...now he’s a dead thug.

As I said last week, 'If there is new information that will make me change my mind, I'll say I was wrong.' This is it. Last week, I thought Martin was innocent, now, when Zimmerman said that Martin attacked him, now I'll say that Martin is wrong and so is Zimmerman. (911 told Zimmerman not to follow him, but he did).

If Treyvon was my son, (he would have a normal name) if he was suspended from school, his cell phone would be off and him walking around would not be happening.

Moving to the serious side for a moment, I see society wide evidence that most blacks, including public "servants" opt to side with racial color rather than objective observation.

For convenience, the prosecutor can bypass the police and present whatever selected evidence she wishes to a Grand Jury with immunity (for the prosecutor) and little risk of consequences.

She can bring in ham sandwiches for lunch, (and so the jury doesn't get confused), and assure herself of every black vote in the county for 200 years (as LBJ would say).

So this ain't going away, but there is still the risk that the New Black Panthers will do something really stupid despite her.

La Raza is an organization run by professional Mexican, but funded entirely through foundation grant and government money. The concept of “La Raza Cosmica” only exists in Mexican culture. In other words, don’t hold your breath on them getting involved with a German/Rican hybrid like GZ.

” Why did Zimmerman leave his truck to follow or otherwise confront Martin? “

Because he didnt recognize him in his neighborhood and was acting suspicious. There have been break ins. What’s wrong with being concerned and observant.

“Wasn’t Zimmerman WARNED not to follow Martin by the police dispatcher? Why did Zimmerman choose not to take that advice? “

He was asked to stop, he lost track, went back his vehicle when he was approached from behind.

So, he did stop. Personally, I would hope more people took notice of what looks out of place in their communities. I don’t think he did anything wrong whatsoever.

Where is there any evidence that Zimmerman continued to follow Martin? How did you arrive at the conclusion that he kept following? He said he stopped and was heading back to his vehicle.
