I hope Zimmerman gets off. If what he did was not self defense then nothing is.

This is not new. He’s been saying that since day one.

I already knew about this in May.

Correction: a lot of it, but definitely the title subject.

We are just getting a lot of this that we already have seen, but in a different context.

(snip) one day after he blew away Martin (snip)

I know the Post writers aren't exactly paragons of the English language, but this is a very small step above "bustin' a cap." I suppose I should be happy that it's not written out in text-speak.

I heard that GZ's pistol still had the empty casing in the chamber when the cops got it. This would indicate that the slide had not retracted during firing to eject the empty and load the next round. And why would it not have done so? Because innocent Trayvon had his fist closed over it, trying to tear it out of GZ's hand.

If this wasn't self-defense, nothing is.

Looks like the punk got it wrong. I would have done the same.

There seems to me that there will soon be a large train wreck coming to Florida! It might be pictured by imagining a head-on, full speed, between Yellowstone and BigBoy!

Oh, I think Zimmerman overreacted. Why, just becuase someone is sitting on you, beating your head into the pavement, reaching for your gun and says "You're going to die tonight mother f--ker", why would you assume they meant to inflict bodily harm? It's only because the child was black that he felt threatened.

Need I add, /sarc?

Not when it's a yute armed with a bag of Skittles.

Being followed in car and then on foot by a stranger with a gun can just as easily be perceived as a deadly threat. You know what perception is, don't you....it is the reason this entire affair happened in the first place.

So is someone bashing your head into the sidewalk to the point where you feel like you're about to lose consciousness.

If there were a campaign to destroy the case against Zimmerman, dripping out the exculpatory details one by one over months would be the way to do it. It’s like when the Democrats slime a GOP politician. It may just be caused by the Extra Special prosecutrix’s suppression of the facts to begin with. (Do angry cops just keep dropping these bombs?) The prosecution will fail, and Sanford is going to have a problem from every direction.

Accused murderer George Zimmerman reenacted for cops how Trayvon Martin allegedly jumped him and reached for his gun

I speculated about this right after the date of this event.

In fact, if Martin had tried to grab a cops gun, they would have shot him 10-20 times.

Bet the rent.

It was a huge mistake for Zimmerman to do this video. Can’t believe his attorney would allow him to do it.
