Why don't you take a close look at the reason you chose to make such an ignorant post. It isn't because you really think I'm a racist. Its because I made a valid point and you had no reasonable rebuttal.
Now that you have a chance to think about your real motive, don't you feel small and petty?”

“To quote Sgt. Friday, Just the facts, Ma'am. Remove race from this entirely and look at the facts, all of which you needed to be on the jury to hear and see. The facts support that TM attacked GZ. The facts support that GZ sustained injuries from that attack. The facts support that GZ shot TM from extremely close range, not from even a few feet away. It was TM that decided to escalate what could have been a conversation, to a confrontation, to an altercation.”

“Regardless, the facts dont really support Z fearing for his life given the defense harped on the head being beat into the concrete but when the shooting occurred they were on the grass, thus no more fear. Like I said, state shouldve been arguing against claim of self defense and they blew it. The Sanford PD, the Sanford mayor, local state's attorney, the special prosecutor from jacksonville who yesterday actually called Zimmerman a murderer (utterly ridiculous and she should be penalized imo) and the state's attorneys who eventually tried this case failed all around.”

“It is as though you do not even understand the point I was making with original comment. I never once commented on whether I though the jury verdict was correct, because that is not the discussion i am trying to raise here. Of course it was, there is no way anyone really believes Zimmerman intended to shoot and kill someone that night. smh
As to the facts, the person only need to feel fear, not actually be in danger of deadly bodily harm. The facts support that Martin struck Z, there are no facts to support how the altercation started though it does seem more likely M struck him first, the initial blow that struck Z in the nose - there is just no proof of who struck first. The facts support Z sustained some injure, yup.
Actually when Martin asked him what was up Z couldve immediately diffused the situation by IDing himself as neighborhood watch and asking if Martin was staying there. I am not excusing Martin's infantile behavior, I imagine quite a lot of teens and quite a lot of men would also punch Z if they saw him reaching for his pocket like that. I think men who wont admit that is a likely response some men might have are just being disingenuous.”

“Open carry is legal in both states I reside in, and both will get you detained if not arrested because someone will call the cops and claim they feel threatened. You confirm the point that criminals prefer unarmed victims.”
enhancedvibes on Jul 16, 2013 at 18:27:52
“I didnt confirm any such thing. Open carry is legal in many states. I would love to read about the incidence of people calling police because they felt threatened. Horrible argument.
Obviously people dont open carry because they dont want people knowing they are armed, it has nothing to do with what they claim CCWs are for (aside from the obvious self defense) which is to alert the public that any and all persons could be armed, so act accordingly.
The argument for CCWs is a joke, no civilian needs to carry a concealed firearm around other than those that need it for work - law enforcement, bondsman, property repossessor, tow truck driver, etc. There is no public need being served by expanding gun rights. All it has done has resulted in increased incidents like this one.”

“Punch me in the face just because you THINK I may be reaching for a weapon, and I'd shoot you. Just consider the multitude of things TM could have done differently.”
enhancedvibes on Jul 16, 2013 at 18:43:08
“Just look at your rationalization and how ridiculous it sounds. Just think of the things the victim couldve done to prevent someone from shooting him, lol. It's absurd. If i punch someone I dont think he is entitled to shoot me, and guess what, the law doesnt support that. All we know is that M did indeed punch Z. Even if we believe Z that M punched him first, which does seem likely, so what, there is NO evidence how they ended up on the ground and anything that happened thereafter other than witnesses confirming they were basically rolling around. From Z's own accounting he was on the grass when he shot M and we all know Martin landed face down in the grass. He state just did a horrible job frankly, thats all there is to it.
I find it ridiculous, and imo part of the racial undertones of this case, that anyone is arguing what Martin couldve done differently than over what Zimmerman couldve done, ya know, the subject of this article. The guy is dead, the ONLY thing he couldve done was just go home, ALL of the power was in Zimmerman's hands. And like I said, he created the environment that resulted in the altercation. Unfortunately, those things Z did are not illegal!”

“Now youre just being silly and that response would NOT be self defense. That is not a reasonable fear for one's life, merely being punched in the face Look, the law is clear on this case. The state failed by egregiously overcharging something they could never prove and then actually arguing their case when they shouldve been arguing AGAINST the claim of self defense. The only issue of fact for the jury to decide was whether they believed Zimmerman feared deadly bodily harm. He was rightfully acquitted, let's get past that because that is not what my original comment was about.”

“All 50 states now have some form of concealed carry. Having taken more than one CCW class in more than one state, I can assure you that it is stressed that you should only draw your weapon as a last resort. AS for Stand Your Ground, Martin chose to go way beyond that. How about a list of all the things that he could have done that would have kept him from being shot and killed? Why is it that the only people who feel race is relative at all here, are of the same skin color as TM? Stop trying to portray his as an innocent victim. He was neither. And the thought that "I'd better not do that, they might have a gun" is absolutely ridiculous. If the possibility of someone being armed affects your actions, then you shouldn't "Do That" in the first place.”

“"And the thought that "I'd better not do that, they might have a gun" is absolutely ridiculous. If the possibility of someone being armed affects your actions, then you shouldn't "Do That" in the first place. "
You mean Martin shouldnt have asked Zimmerman what his deal is? How absurd. Further, that is EXACTLY the purpose of CCW!! To make people think otherwise of engaging in an altercation with someone for fear they might be armed. In a lot of states you can open carry, why dont people do that since that would OBVIOUSLY prevent people from trying to commit a crime on their person!??”

“Martin is innocent, he is dead and cannot defend himself. Even if he did punch Zimmerman first, which we do not know for sure, so? That doesnt warrant being shot to death. Sadly, all the actions leading up to this altercation were preventable by Zimmerman but none were illegal. That is why so many Americans are angry.
Zimmerman was an adult who created the environment that escalated to an altercation. If you are a man and willing to be honest it is pretty reasonable to opine that if we are to believe Z's accounting - M approached him, said yo homey whats the problem, Z said no, no problem (why didnt he ID himself?) then Z reached for his pocket or in his pocket (mind you this is Z's own accounting) and then M punched him in the face -- you would agree that it is actually a normal response for any man to strike first if he thinks someone is going for a weapon or some similar action.
Martin couldve walked home, that was what he couldve done to avoid this interaction. But I personally find it silly and downright silly that men are arguing like they wouldnt have done the same thing as Martin. He was being followed and he confronted the guy, quelle surprise.
As for the law, it supports shooting to kill over shooting to avoid deadly harm. 200% increase in justifiable homicide claims in FL since inception of SYG? Something wrong with that.”

“Ftr I am white and a woman and I am not approaching this matter other than via the law and what is wrong with how the law cannot address such an occurrence because the law in fact supports such an occurrence happening.
All the white people (especially white men) so quick to want to believe Zimmerman, when there is absolutely no evidence proving what really happened are really the ones that need to think about why they want to rationalize and justify Zimmerman's actions and so quick to believe he must be right (because their biases have been confirmed about Martin) when everything we know about him reveals he lacks credibility?!?!?”

“Wow, I didn't realize you were an forensics investigator assigned to the case. The picture the media uses won't matter come the trial, but the fact that the media continues to use a picture that is not only not representative of how TM looked at the time of the incident, they've photoshopped it to make him appear less black. The truth doesn't have versions, theirs or anyone elses. A lie is a lie, and we're being lied to.”

“Get your facts straight. He was not told to stop by the cops. He was on the phone with a 911 operator, who is not a cop but a civilian. Yes they receive training but that training cannot cover every possible scenario. And why do they keep showing a 7? year old picture of Martin which has been photoshopped to lighten it, instead of pictures of how he looked that night? The media is slanting this to sell more newspapers.”

“The picture they use of travon is NOT the issue, it won't even matter in the trial. It is what took place.When DNA comes out on trial people will see Zimmerman told some lies, people lie when they cover up something. Yes, I have seen it already. Zimmerman sure had some clean clothes on for someone that had rolled around in the dirt, strange travon didn't have any of Zimmermans DNA on him.”
