I think a lot of this is George's idea. And he's a Democrat and Democrat's think that all problems are problems of communication, that if they just heard me tell my story, then they would open up their hearts and purse strings, and believe me and love me. Courts don't work that way. He just may talk himself into a jail cell. He needs to stfu.

Yep.

You need to get a clue, it’s 2012 and for someone who has been unfairly treated in the media to not do some PR in the media to fight back is crazy. If he were lying or guilty then I say STFU but as far as I’m concerned and as far as his poly is concerned and the physical evidence along with witness statements, he’s telling the truth. I’m not saying he should do more interviews but one or two is fine..it’s needed.
Now the attorney needs to attack from behind the scenes as well with leaks to the media about Martin. Dig up whatever he can find.

However will the media even print stories that go against Martin’s character?

Go away already.
My gawd.

He was taking CLASSES at a local community college, he wasn’t in law school, you twit.
And most people probably couldn’t tell you MOST of the laws of their state because there are so many.
And if he did know of the law you think he sat in his truck thinking “Hey i’ll follow this guy and if he turns on me i can use the STAND YOUR GROUND defense?”

Why would GZ lie about knowing a law that doesnt even apply to his case anyway? It’s a straight up self defense case.

I truly don’t get the hero worship .... what exactly has this person done that is to be so proud of?

Why is he so special that he should be treated different than anyone else that has been charged with a heinous crime? It’s not like he has been charged and falsely convicted and needing help to raise funds for an appeal .... he hasn’t even been to court to prove his innocence at all yet!

Yes, I know that the standard is “innocent until proven guilty” and I believe in that standard .... the difference is that when you are claiming a “self-defense” defense .... well then it DOES become your job to PROVE that you killed someone and it was legally defensible .... he hasn’t done that yet.

I am really trying to understand what is it about HIM.... I mean George Zimmerman specifically .... what is it about HIM .... that creates in the supporters the kind of almost hero worship I keep seeing here.

What has he DONE or SAID to earn that .... certainly it can’t be that you agree with Mark O’Mara when he asks .... if you would have done the same thing George Zimmerman did please donate .... I refuse to believe that is what it is .... I know that the people here aren’t like that. There is no denying that George shouldn’t have got out of that truck and followed the kid .... if he had stayed in that truck and waited for the police .... like he was trained to do .... none of this would have happened!

He needs to find an attorney who will do that. Mark O'Mara won't.

However will the media even print stories that go against Martin’s character?

His attorney should file contempt of court charges against the prosecution for not releasing the toxicology report, the official phone company log of Trayvon Martin's calls, and DeeDee's calls, and Tracy Martin's calls instead of the cut and paste fraudulent one that they have offered.

And he needs to then hold a press conference to demand them. Why is he not doing that??? Is it because the prosecution if holding tape #30 over his head???

Ah there you go --- same song same verse a little bit louder a little bit worse. But you forget the other verses of that "If Only" song:

If only Trayvon Martin had stayed in school,

If only Trayvon Martin had not punched the bus driver,

If only Martin had not painted graffiti on school lockers,

If only Martin had not brought marijuana to school,

If only his father had not been a CRIP,

If only his mother had been more of a mother to him,

If only his father had not left Alicia and started up with Brandi,

If only he had not been left alone in Sanford that weekend,

If only he had not gone to 7-Eleven,

If only he had gone straight home instead of casing other domiciles,

If only he had not put up his hoodie and run when he saw the white guy on the phone with the police,

If only he had not been acting suspicious,

If only he had not come back to confront the white guy,

If only he had not punched the white guy,

If only he had stopped punching the white guy who was crying out for help,

If only he had left the white guy there bloody and bruised and run instead of trying to finish the job,

If only .....

You see, BB, there are a whole lot of more verses to that "If Only" song that you be singin'.

HANNITY: And the police said they heard at one point 14 screams, you were screaming that loud?

ZIMMERMAN: Yes, sir.

HANNITY: And you said to the police at one point that he put his hand over your mouth. Do you think that was to silence you from screaming?

ZIMMERMAN: Yes, sir. I believe he — from what the investigators told me, he knew that I was talking to the police. And I was yelling so that — I believed that the police officer was there and they just couldn’t hear me. So, I was yelling in the hopes that they were in the vicinity and they would come when they heard me yelling.

Whoa!!! How did the investigators know that Trayvon Martin knew that he had been on the phone with the police??? from Tracy Martin??? from DeeDee's phone??? from Zimmerman's description of his behavior on the NEN call after which he ran [cripwalked] away??? and/or from experience with the criminal mindset that seeks to intimidate and eliminate all witnesses and tattletalers who can or might identify them???

We have the reason for Trayvon's assault on Zimmerman that night right here -- and the investigators knew it, especially when told that the assault started as he was reaching into his pocket for his cellphone.

This needs to be highlighted, and all phone records of the Martin side of the family subpoenaed by the state and then made public.

Where are they, Corey??? Where are they, Crump???

Git on it, O'Mara

Now try to concentrate and answer the question, if you can without injecting snide remarks, which was about George Zimmerman.

I truly don’t get the hero worship .... what exactly has George Zimmerman done that is to be so proud of?

Why is George Zimmerman so special that he should be treated different than anyone else that has been charged with a heinous crime? It’s not like he has been charged and falsely convicted and needing help to raise funds for an appeal .... hasn’t even been to court to prove his innocence at all yet.

I am really trying to understand what is it about HIM.... I mean George Zimmerman specifically .... what is it about HIM .... that creates in the supporters the kind of almost hero worship I keep seeing here.

Should I surmise from your "if only" rant, that is full of speculation, that it is solely a black vs. white/hispanic issue for you? Are you a racist?

I think you get it.

It’s not like he has been charged and falsely convicted

Who are you kidding???You had him convicted from day one.

I know that the standard is “innocent until proven guilty” and I believe in that standard

Oh yeh -- right. You expect us to believe that???

well then it DOES become your job to PROVE that you killed someone and it was legally defensible .... he hasn’t done that yet.

He has in the court of public opinion that has seen all the evidence there is to see.

I am really trying to understand

You need to try harder

the supporters the kind of almost hero worship

kind of like the sainthood tour of Trayvon Martin. If he is your kind of hero, then no wonder you don't understand.

Should I surmise from your "if only" rant, that is full of speculation, that it is solely a black vs. white/hispanic issue for you?

Why would that be??? Because I used the term that DeeDee did in her deposition that came right from the mouth of your hero??? or should I have used the term "cracka". Is that better???

Are you a racist?

Is that another one of your baseless accusations that your side is so skilled at victimizing others with??? Take a rest, Natalie.

Ah, I thought maybe you’d answer my question, but once again you dance around it and call me names.

I’d expect that of my feisty 8-year-old but not from a fellow FReeper. I can’t wait ‘til this is all over and we can be “buds” again in Freeperland. The vile BS is not helping anyone.

I did. You didn't like them???

but once again you dance around it and call me names.

What?? like Natalie. That is your real name, isn't it, Natalie??? or is it Daralene this morning??? Ben, are you there too?? Daryl, you were great the other night.

I’d expect that of my feisty 8-year-old but not from a fellow FReeper.

Don't flatter yourself.

I can’t wait ‘til this is all over and we can be “buds” again in Freeperland.

Don't kid yourself.

The vile BS is not helping anyone.

Then tell Crumpettes and Trayvonistas to call off the dogs.

body language experts.

Is that what you have been reduced to??? Obviously the words in those witness statements, FBI reports, police reports, medical reports, and autopsy reports are too hard to read. So now you have been reduced to reading body language??? You're no better at reading those either. Are body language readings acceptable in a court of law??? Oh -- they're right up there with crystal balls and tea leafs.

"he should have been on top"

Yep -- Daryl Parks finally spit out the truth. Trayvon should have been on top. He is a street fighter, a wannabe gangster, and the son of a Cripster -- he should have been on top. We need more honesty like that -- I'm sure there is more coming.

After 4 months of subourning perjury right and left, you apparently have given up on one little lie. What's a matter -- did one of your subourned witnesses demand more money??? It happens among thieves, you know.

But let's get to the real reason you called:

George Zimmerman: a man on a mission from God, ridding the world of evil, one unarmed kid at a time.

Wow -- you people sure do know how to accept apologies. Did you get that from his words or his body language or your livid imagination???

Let me make one correction for Daryl's sake:

"George Zimmerman: a man on a mission from God, ridding the world of evil, one MMA-trained kid, who was on top and should have been on top, at the time."

Your tagline says – “George Zimmerman: a man on a mission from God, ridding the world of evil, one unarmed kid at a time”

Makes what you say about innocent until proven guilty in Post 59 an outright, bald-faced, shameless, blatantly obvious and unmitigated falsehood. (Post 59: I know that the standard is “innocent until proven guilty” and I believe in that standard).

It is time you re-joined OJ’s search for the real killer.

*** This class will address the specifics of "Stand Your Ground" laws and the "Castle Doctrine." It will specifically address criteria for judicious use of force in self defense. ***

Apparently "he should have been beating him" Parks missed that class as well:

PARKS: Well, I think most reasonable people would see when they hear this case is that Trayvon was doing nothing wrong.

Neither was Zimmerman.

And he was confronted by George.

Not according to the NEN tape and every other piece of evidence, including your witness DeeDee. But we still haven't seen her phone records yet, have we???

Trayvon, one, did nothing whatsoever.

Neither did Zimmerman until Trayvon slugged him, and then followed that up with an MMA style beating.

He was provoked.

And that provocation was what??? Zimmerman's talking to the police??? That's what the investigators said set him off that night. But we still haven't seen the tox report, have we???

And so when Trayvon is followed, he doesn't know this guy at all. And this guy is looking at him and in a suspicious way.

That's what Zimmerman reported to the NEN dispatcher about Trayvon. But Zimmerman didn't then go over and punch him, and beat him and slam his head on the ground. Didn't Trayvon have phone?? Why didn't he call 911???

So any one especially once he realizes that this guy is armed

How did he know he was armed before he slugged him??? How did he see the gun in the dark in its holster under his jacket??? Is he superman with x-ray eyes??? Is that the new MMA way of disarming someone -- punch him in the face, knock him to the ground, get on top and beat his head into the concrete for a minute, hold your hands over his mouth as he cries out for help -- everything but going after the gun??? Right??? Your story is now really ridiculous.

for him to fight for his life.

Why didn't he just run home which was only a few hundred feet away??? Oh that's right, he did. DeeDee said he did. You remember DeeDee???

And, you know, you hear him talking about his nose was broken.

It's not talk. It's documented. You're the one doing the talking.

Who apparently He is fighting a man with a 9-millimeter. He is fighting a man with a 9-millimeter.

Who apparently allowed himself to be a human punching bag for a few minutes, even telling his assailant to stop with 12 cries for help, before having to resort to it.

HANNITY: But the eyewitness said that Trayvon was on top of him.

PARKS: Well, he should have been on top of him.

Really -- to show that he is the better man???

If this guy was stalking him and this guy is armed, he should have been beating him.

Really -- and you pretend to be a lawyer??? No wonder so many of your admirers are behind bars.

I mean -- he was trying to save his life.

So you disguise your assaults behind the excuse that you thought the other guy was stalking you and might be armed, so I assaulted him first??? Really??? Have you read the Law:

776.041:Use of force by aggressor: The justification described in the preceding sections of this chapter is not available to a person who: (1)Is attempting to commit, committing, or escaping after the commission of, a forcible felony; or (2)Initially provokes the use of force against himself or herself, unless: (a)Such force is so great that the person reasonably believes that he or she is in imminent danger of death or great bodily harm and that he or she has exhausted every reasonable means to escape such danger other than the use of force which is likely to cause death or great bodily harm to the assailant; or (b)In good faith, the person withdraws from physical contact with the assailant and indicates clearly to the assailant that he or she desires to withdraw and terminate the use of force, but the assailant continues or resumes the use of force.

I hope for his own sake that "he should have been beating him" Parks isn't carrying, because he certainly did miss that class.

Trayvon, was by all accounts a pretty normal kid ... hated school, liked girls, smoked a little weed, helped his dad with sports programs and just wanted to move to the next level ... college. What I found really interesting were the remarks from his classmates ... that he was funny and loved to parody gangsta culture to make them laugh. Barring some disaster he would have entered the black middle class and been a good man. But there was a disaster ... named George Zimmerman.

I would guarantee that had Trayvon been white and had been murdered in the very same circumstances by the accused murderer, people would have been singing from every rooftop across the country for justice. There wouldn't be a "defense" fund, there wouldn't have been slandering of the victim or his parents, there wouldn't have been an outcry had it been Billy Graham begging for justice, there wouldn't have been outrage if George W Bush stated "he could have been my child," there would be no questioning why photographs from when he was young were shown on the news. None of these things would have been even remotely entertained. If he had gotten in trouble in school, it would have been "well, a lot of kids get in trouble at school from time to time," and no one would be screaming about the fact that he might have occasionally smoked a joint. If the Klan had put a bounty on the accused murderer's head, it would have been okay because we're going to do whatever it takes to ensure that there is justice. Had rallies broke out across the country with people declaring No Justice No peace, people wouldn't speak ill of them, they would have joined in. It's such a double standard that it makes me absolutely sick to my stomach some times. People can say what they want but sadly racism is still very much alive and well in this country and we are being subjected to it day after day after day. Trayvon is not black to me. Trayvon is a kid who was walking home from buying snacks at the local 7-11 who was stalked and hunted like he was prey by a madman. It's really that simple.

Poor George ...

It is not his fault he sexually assaulted a 6-year-old.

It is not his fault he assaulted an ATF agent.

It is not his fault he used the gun he owned to murder Trayvon.

It is not his fault he forgot to turn in his passport.

It is not his fault he forgot the tell the court how much money he had.

It is not his fault he has no regrets for murdering an unarmed boy.

It was God’s plan …

It is never George’s fault.

Never, ever …

Typical Zimbo Zombie
