Show me anywhere where I asked you to call him or consider him a hero. Martin was a 17 year old. Last time I checked, 17 year-olds cannot possess firearms of any kind, much less pistols and certainly cannot carry concealed, right? As I understand it, Mr. Zimmerman was searching for street signs to tell the non-emergency dispatcher where to send the police officers when he was sucker-punched by Trayvon. And I don’t care if you are FR member number one.

Author Brad Thor tweeted that he’s gonna but George a new gun anyways.

I’ve never read his books, but I am now.

I can’t afford to buy GZ a gun, but I can at least support the person who will. Thor is a great American.

What does any of the above mean?

As for the rest I think GZ showed a glaring lack of situational awareness. But there are few here that will allow any criticism of him at all.

But DOJ ok’d Fast & Furious...

Zimmerman’s lawyers are good enough to get his gun back.

Too bad we don’t have a President who will unite people and support the rule of law in all situations.

You said “Had Martin been armed there would be an unsolved murder in Sanford, Zimmerman’s.” and I responded to that thought. That’s what it means.

Call the police. But I would have a flashlight and a drawn weapon if I were planning to play cop myself.

TM could still have been armed for all GZ knew. Legality is not relevant at that point. If GZ could have been cold coked he could have been shot even easier.

He almost was cold-conked by the first punch to his face and the subsequent beating against the pavemment. Did you watch even one minute of this trial? Man-o-Manischevitz!

So I don’t get it. You’re criticizing him for playing cop (not true btw), but yet you are also criticizing him for not playing cop enough by drawing his weapon?

My dad chased a creepy guy out of our neighborhood one night who turned out to be a peeping tom. He probably would have shot him, if he had gotten close enough.... But he at least took off outside to see who it was... Was he or any of the thousands of men who do that all the time “playing cops”?

Then you would probably get arrested for brandishing or some other offense like kidnapping (holding someone against their will with a gun is kidnapping).

He had a flashlight, but TM knocked it out of his hand when he sucker-punched him and broke his nose.

Arrgh—posted before I was finished with my post. The flashlight batteries apparently went dead, and at one point GZ was fiddling around with it, trying to get it to work. That may have been when TM confronted then punched him.

BTW, the Neighborhood Watch guidelines stated that one should never confront the suspicious person, but to call the Non-emergency number. That is pretty much what GZ did. He only got out of his truck after TM took off running. The NEN operator, as he testified in court, didn’t even know GZ was ever in his truck. He thought GZ was outside, on foot, the entire time.

Testimony and evidence says he had a flashlight. I fear you you speaking from ignorance.

Totally criminal government. However, with a few major cities declaring bankruptcy, won’t be long until the welfare stops, and SHTF. People, keep your powder dry.

“Holder has sequestered the evidence from the trial.”

That’s terrifying, if true. What gives him the right to mess with a state’s “stuff”? I know he has partners in crime in the FL bureaucracy who are happy to help out, so states’ rights are disregarded.

The world Holder and the entire race industry want to see is a world where it is illegal for anyone of another race to kill a black person. No other facts matter. If a black thug breaks into a white persons home and is raping your wife, you go to jail for killing him. That’s as civilized as the Muslims stoning women for the crime of being raped.

Blacks can kill each other of course - because there’s no money to be made off of black on black homicide. No grievance or reparations money to be had there.

Morally reprehensible as it is, they are laying their true feelings out for all to see. I don’t normally speak is such coarse terms, but what we’re dealing with here - the Black Taliban.

Unfortunately, what you say is not only plausible, but apparently it is working for them.
The only facts that matter in this case “legally”, are that Martin attacked Zimmerman, and sustained that attack until Zimmerman responded with deadly force. Every other piece of the emotional puzzle, and every prior act is just trivia and distraction.
The jury heard these facts and determined that Zimmerman was justified in defending his life.
Now the trivia and distraction are being rolled out in an obvious attempt to create MORE rights for one subset of the population, and LESS rights if you are perceived to be “a cracka”.

"It’s apparent to anyone paying attention that the NSA spying uncovered a lot of dirt on a lot of republican politicians."

Just an extension of Hillary and Bill's collection of FBI files...the DNC has had the 'goods' on a number of Congresscritters for a while now, and they don't have the decency to clear the way for anyone not compromised.

See post 115.

For all of you defenders. Had Martin known that Zimmerman was armed I think Martin slinks away.

People seem surprised that this nations Department of Justice would steal & try to engage in POLITICAL SHOW TRIALS like Stalin used to have .

Folks need to wake up cause the GOP is more interested in not tipping over the apple cart so they can keep the perk & trappings of high elected office than preserving the nation as a Constitutional Republic.

these are blue zone refugees from reality. J. Nelson and angela corey are elitists who have no place in the legal profession. Unfortunatly the florida bar represents elites and elitists not lawyers or the law.

we have to start putting stand your ground in all the constitutions of all states.

If anything putting just the civil immunity will neuter the lawyers and end the debate. when their money leaves, the debate ends.

Actually they SOLD automatic weapons in the form of M-2 .50 caliber heavy machine guns & m-67 fragmentation grenades to the Mexican drug cartels & have yet to account for the money received.
For all you or I are allowed to know the money could have been diverted to a U.S. Attorney’s retirement account in the frikken Cayman Islands.
