Gee, maybe because of all the other pics of him that don't show him with that big bulge on the side of his nose.

BTW, I'm guessing you think Zimmerman is innocent of all charges.
No, I think that we're not hearing the whole truth from either side, but the LAW says that until the prosecution can prove him guilty, he's innocent. For me, it's not a matter of what perspective of this suports by personal point of view, but wanting this case to be handeld according to the LAW and the media, not the dumbass talking heads and not the court of public opinion.

I have never seen anyone with a broken nose, I would think the nose would be crooked, not just have a bulge next to it. You're right, I know zip nothing about broken noses. Never had one, never saw one, never gave anyone one.

I think what this man Zimmerman did was abominable, I don't care if it was "technically legal" or if he gets off scot free. (Which is about what I'd expect from the state of Florida).

I think the Stand Your Ground Law should be repealed.

It is strange how this incident, which is not remotely political, has become so.

And when something becomes political you can bet your last dollar Republicans and Democrats will blindly line up behind their perspective side regardless of the facts.

While this is the only forum I currently post on, I do read threads on others. I have noticed something very interesting and peculiar with members here and on other boards. Virtually every Democrat believes Zimmerman is guilty and Martin was as pure and innocent as the driven snow and almost every Republican holds the opposite views.

I am sure the fact most Democrats view Zimmerman as guilty and most Republicans feel he is innocent has nothing to do with political bias or blindly doing as your party tells you.

Political indoctrination is one of the most powerful ones of its kind, far more effective and influential than any religion. I find the hold it has over its followers fascinating and something I enjoy studying and attempting to understand.

We have reached the point where the issue does not even have to be political. If Debbie Wasserman-Schultz stood up in front of a camera and told all Democrats to throw away five dollar bills because it has a Republican on it and MSNBC echoed her words, liberals would leap in their cars, speed to the nearest bridge and hurl the money over like it was a ticking bomb. Same goes for Republicans and whatever non-political issue they want to insert their snout into.

If people realized the extent they are sheep to political parties it would horrify them. Fortunately for them denial is also a powerful thing and instinctively shields them from the fact they side with their party almost every time and have not had an independent thought since they began to follow politics. They continue to say, "I think for myself" and, "No one tells me what to do," yet we consistently see every Democrat and Republican take the same side not only on political issues but non-political topics that were tainted and contaminated from political spill-over.

Forget the donkey and elephant. The mascots of these two parties should just be a flock of sheep with the Democrats being herded to the left and Republicans to the right.

All that said, sure looks like a broken nose to me, but then what the hell do I know?

This story is political by it's very nature. No one had to make it political. It IS political.

WRONG!!!!...

What you see is "virtually every Democrat believes Zimmerman is guilty" and every Republican seeing how the media and prosecution turned this into a "guilty until proven innocent" event...

Irrelevant of any opinions on the case, what I present are events that have happened since the shooting...

1) The original pictures of Trayvon Martin made public were when he was a child and not recent...SINCE those pictures were taken, he has grown to over 6 feet and gained over 50 pounds...

2) The images of Zimmerman were lightened to make him appear white even though he's Hispanic...

3) NBC intentionally changed the 991 call to make it appear Zimmerman pushed the race of the person he shot instead of the truth, which is that he was asked by the 911 operator...

4) ABC released a grainy video of Zimmerman arriving at the police station to push the narrative he wasn't injured, while the detailed video showed the obvious injuries...

5) This thread, which shows a detailed and graphic image a full eight months after the prosecution displayed ONLY a grainy black-and-white photocopy of Zimmerman's face, making the injuries he sustained virtually impossible to see...

THAT is what the Republicans on this forum are most offended at...The fact the conclusions was pre-conceived and the evidence was manipulated to get to that pre-conceived conclusion...

So in your mind he's already guilty?? Let's take a look at this OBJECTIVELY. If what Zimmerman claims was that truth (and NO, I'm not saying that is, I'm just throwing out a hypothetical situation here), that Martin was beating his head against the concrete sidewalk and he honestly felt that his life was in danger, does he have the legal AND ethical right to kill Martin?? Leave out all the partisan crap and preconceived notions you have and look at this from this one perspective for a moment.

In my mind, what Zimmerman did was ethically wrong, even if he turns out to be legally right.

Zimmerman initiated the entire encounter with Martin. He should have left him alone and called the cops. Martin is dead because of Zimmerman's actions.

If you don't know what broken nose loks like, why would you even consider commenting on whether his nose looks broken?? Stuff like that maeks me wonder about the ability of people to accept that they don't everything. If I was you and had never seen a broken nose, before I made myself look as dumb as you just did, I'd Google for images of broken noses and see what they looked like.






You didn't, you just flat out LIED when you said that his nose didn't look broken, since you have no idea what a broken nose looks like. sd, I've broken a couple of guys noses in my past and what I see in that picture looks almost exactly what they looked like. It also looks almost exactly like a picture of my Dad from High School when he got his broken trying to ride a sled down a hill that no one in thier right mind would ever ride. See, I have experience with this kind of thing, so I can make a judgement about whether it looks like a broken nose, you have none, so all you can do is make up crap.
