    George Zimmerman Evidence Shows Extent To Which Police Doubted Self-Defense Claim

    From the start, there have been huge holes in Zimmerman's story but really, the most glaring aspect of this case has always been that he went out hunting that night. He was armed and attacked a teenager who was minding his own business.

    Zimmerman started this and whatever the law decides, his life is pretty much over. I have no doubt that he will end up just as dead as the kid he attacked.

    A doubt does not mean guilt.

    Zimmerman was given a lie detector test and easily passed.

    Just for the record - "justice" can be a not guilty verdict or a guilty verdict, depending on the facts of the case.

    All too often, people tend to think that "justice" means only one thing - conviction followed by punishment. You know that lady with the blindfold on holding those scales? One of them represents guiilt, one innocence. She is known as the Lady of Justice.

    No, one represents guilt, and the other NOT guilty. Innocent is way to the side of not guilty, remember the higher threshold in criminal cases. Otherwise, THANK YOU.

    Against plain-clothed, gun-toting wannabees on power trips?

    I suppose Trayvon Martin might actually agree, if only he could...

    Justice for Trayvon was a bullet in the chest. He died because he was a thug who couldn't control his anger. The "no limit nigga" (Trayvon's Facebook name) found out that there are limits. He went too far and got what he deserved.

    All the evidence shows that Zimmerman was engaged in completely legal and ethical activity when Trayvon attacked him. Trayvon knocked Zimmerman to the ground and than got on top of him striking him in the head repeatedly. Trayvon was never a victim in this case. Zimmerman was the victim and Trayvon was the criminal. If Trayvon had survived, he would have gone to prison, and Zimmerman would have sued his ass.

    Fuck Trayvon.

    It's a shame that so many people demonize the victim and glorify a thug.

    A few question for those who think Trayvon was just an innocent Skittles eating kid: What do you think would have happened if Zimmerman had not shot him? At what point was Trayvon going to stop beating Zimmerman?

    To me, it was obvious that Zimmerman was unable to defend himself against Trayvon's attacks. The evidence shows that Zimmerman was injured, and Trayvon was not (except for the gun shot), so how many more shots to the face was Zimmerman supposed to take?

    Again, fuck Trayvon.

    Those are only a couple of questions; not "a few", Chode.

    But speaking of questions, here are more than a few for you:

    1) How would you advise parents to teach their teenagers to react to the sort of situation in which Trayvon Martin found himself in the moments leading up to his death?

    2) Should we tell our kids to stop, drop, and obey every order of any plain-clothed lunatic that finds them vaguely suspicious?

    3) Should we tell them to try to run away?

    4) What if the plain-clothed stranger chases after them, catches up, and then attempts to detain them?

    5) Should different M.O.'s for dealing with this situation be adopted by teenagers of different ethnicities?

    Seriously, fuck you and everyone else of your ilk.
