Who called Martin a thug? The right.

Another way to say this would be that the evidence did not support the charges.

But it depend one's predisposition.

For what its worth I am not defending Zimmerman, just the rule of law and due process.

We don't disagree. They could not prove him guilty. I have no issue with that. I do think the hearing was called for though. There was a lack of investigation in the case. The police didn't even check Martins phone for numbers and his father found out about his death by looking for his son. They also didn't test Zimmerman for drugs or alcohol. They simply bought his story. Had the races been reversed I am sure more investigation would have taken place.



But it is true the far right sided with Zimmerman and trashed Martin. There is no eveidence Martin had done anything wrong but defending himself.

I get the feeling if Obama had been the one in Zimmerman's place, more than a few people on the left would have looked upon him as a god regardless, after the acquittal.

A wannabe thug bit off more than he could chew, attacked Zimmerman, and got killed. What else is there to discuss? If Martin woulda spent more time learning to be a real man instead of a wannabe thug he would still be alive. Nothin' more to say 'bout it.

Zimmerman is a moron that deserves a whole lot of bad things to happen to him, but that has nothing to do with this case. Martin was a retard who brought fists to a gunfight and obvious results ensued.

Here's the pic someone posted that everyone is talking about. It's not even a secret. MSNBC, as well as real news organizations, showed it a long time ago. Do we even know for a fact Zimmerman's account is the one that posted it?

Can you comment on what he actually did that is being discussed in the OP of this thread?

He was stalked by Zimmerman. A fight broke out and instead of recognizing it was a fist fight Zimmerman took the cowardly way and shot Trayvon.

So it was a "gunfight"?
I thought this was supposed to be self-defense?

Well, if Zimmerman planned a gunfight then he should be behind bars.

When your life is in danger, and many official people and a jury agreed on that point, you are not required to bring a similar weapon to the fight.

For Zimmerman it was self defense. After Martin initiated the fight.

Zimmerman did not plan a fight, let alone a gunfight. It was Martin who initiated the contact.

That's not my opinion, that is the position of everybody who was involved in the investigations, and a jury of 12 peers.

Zimmerman is an attention seeking a$$ and his latest action is just further evidence of that. I don't know anyone, conservative or liberal, that thinks otherwise. Fortunately, those are not crimes in this country.

This is not true. A little free education for you: Self defense is an affirmative defense in court.

Quote:
An affirmative defense to a civil lawsuit or criminal charge is a fact or set of facts other than those alleged by the plaintiff or prosecutor which, if proven by the defendant, defeats or mitigates the legal consequences of the defendant's otherwise unlawful conduct. In civil lawsuits, affirmative defenses include the statute of limitations, the statute of frauds, waiver, and other affirmative defenses such as those listed in Rule 8 (c) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. In criminal prosecutions, examples of affirmative defenses are self defense,[1] insanity, and the statute of limitations.
Zimmerman had to prove beyond a reasonable doubt in court that his actions were in self defense. So, as a unanimous jury decision shows, the evidence does support Zimmerman.

Here's the thing. Every step of the way, those in power found Zimmerman not guilty. The race baiters tried to make the case something it wasn't and failed. Time to move on.

It's a fact that most of the people going through the justice system are not the cream of the crop. But all get their day in court. Being a jerk does not change that.
