How to kill someone legally:

  • Be in Florida
  • Stalk the person you want to kill
  • Follow them to an isolated area
  • Provoke a fight with them
  • Take a couple of shots
  • Then whip out your concealed weapon and shoot them
  • Claim Self - defense under Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law

Instigate a fight and then pull a gun and shoot your opponent dead when hands your ass to you. Seems innocent to me.

Yup. Apparently people think it is perfectly fine to ignore an emergency official telling you to stand down, stalk some lone kid down the road, and when he turns to protect himself/confront some random dude following him, you can kill the kid when you begin to lose a confrontation you started and claim you were just defending yourself.

I think posting pieces of a complete story in order to try and argue one side or the other is premature at this juncture. I'm going to wait for the trial and see all the evidence that is brought and refuted by both sides before determining guilt or innocence.

Unfortunately you have a great point there and that's why many will be upset if Zimmerman is found innocent.

It does make him look bad. It shows what he glorifies. I'm not saying its clear proof of anything, I'm just saying that clearly he wasn't innocence defined.

Well, than scratch what I said. But I still will say that none of us were there, and for anyone to say whos right and wrong in the incident is dumb because our opinion doesnt matter the courts opinion will decide.

Did he receive the bloody nose before or after he pulled his gun? Regardless, it is not proofof a single thing. Given what little I know about the case, it seems that Zimmerman could easily be convicted of manslaughter, involuntary or otherwise.

Idiotic stand your ground laws need to be gotten rid of, people should not follow potentially dangerous individuals believed to be engaging in criminal activities (without any evidence), people ought to do what dispatchers tell them, and gun owners need to be responsible individuals.

That's the problem. We don't know what happened.

Which is the police letting George Zimmerman go that night was appalling. The question of race comes up when you can just claim "self-defense" without all the facts and get that seemingly confident benefit of the doubt from the police. "Oh just another black kid dead, probably a gang banger, have a good night Zimmerman!"

Now compare that to the recent case involving Micheal Dunn. He shot a black guy and is claiming self defense under Florida's Stand your Ground Law. How come there's no massive outrage? No walks or protests? Because he's in Jail and awaiting trail.

If Zimmerman stayed arrested, we wouldn't even be having this discussion.

Obviously. Even with 'stand your ground' laws and such in place, my totally non-lawyer brain thinks that Zimmerman could easily be convicted.

Of course, it is up to the prosecution to make the case as to what crimes Zimmerman committed, and any evidence to support the charge of second degree murder, or whatever it is.

And this is my take on the matter. And to the people correlating a picture of a teen sagging his pants and showing his middle fingers to being some worthless piece of sh*t gangbanger that walks around picking fights ... the f*ck? Really, middle fingers and sagging pants and all of a sudden he's some outcast? Whut? Secondly, stop acting like ZImmerman is some saint and a 'model citizen'. He's had run ins with the police before on more than one occasion. Let the jury decide his fate.

Actually, I stated that they deserved what they got as they had shown a propensity to do break-ins and were found to have items in their possesion from a break-in the previous night. Most of those who replied in said thread stated the same thing.

I don't think it will really be a major factor in the case, because we've know since the beginning there was some sort of fight, it just need to be solved who started the fight, to truly find out who was standing their ground

Still, how do you know that Zimmerman meant to kill Martin? No one knows. He may very well have been trying to wound him. The only ones who know are Zimmerman and Martin and neither are talking. Everyone is trying to convict Zimmerman when they do not know what transpired and will not know until the trial and even then we still might not know everything.

As an 18 yr old I can say that if you think Trayvon is doing anything out of the ordinary in that photo you are sadly out of touch. It may not be an upstanding picture, but it's not really a big deal, and doesn't show much of anything.
