There was another option. He could have hit Zimmerman harder. Self defence and all that, should be just as good enough for him as it is for Zimmerman.

And on a separate point entirely. For anyone else to get into an outcry over another crime, my word, how daft do they have to be. None of the horrid crimes people have mentioned are even remotely related to this, other than it is one race killing another.

Massive difference being those involve people getting arrested and most likely getting sentenced, not being ignored based on assumption by the police without an investigation.

You need to get out more.

And also realise, young people do stupid things.

Stupid things should not get you killed.

And to point out the kid being able to run home, well why should he? Zimmerman was just as legally as entitled to get out of his car as so many like to point out.

That would have been fine and dandy and not been the news, had there not been a couple of months before the police investigated the situation though.

That is kind of the big issue here, followed by rather ill thought out laws on self defence and stand your ground.

Agreed 100%. I am wondering where was the outrage when Roderick Scott was acquitted of killing a 17 year old boy.

I bet the Libtards will justify this young mans murder in one way or another.

First guess would be, because he was found guilty and then acquitted.

Rather than just let off without an investigation straight off the bat?

But hey, if you want to sling around crap insults, why let reason get in the way of anything :/

But stupid things DO get you killed. Maybe YOU should get out more! And BTW, Darwin had a theory about it. The theory is still controversial in these parts, though I'm not sure why as it is demonstrably true!

Well apparently Martin was spooked enough to do something, with flight or fight being the obvious options. One, I would suggest, had a likely outcome of survival without injury, with injury a relatively small possibility, and death unlikely, the other had injury as an almost certainty, severe injury or death as a very real possibility, and escape without injury as a virtual impossibility. Obviously he did not weigh his options and possible outcomes well!

Here is a trial transcript where a witness stated he saw Trayvon on top of a screaming Zimmerman, But let's not let facts get in the way ....Right ?

http://legalinsurrection.com/2013/06...al-arts-style/

I am in no way excusing Zimmerman nor demonizing Trayvon, but it gets really tiring hearing how Trayvon was a saintly child just walking home with his skittles and ice tea and how Zimmerman racially targeted him... Trayvon was the one who displayed racist vernacular according to the jentell bint, yet Zimmerman and the US justice system are Racist..

If he was acquitted - it wasn't a murder. There are more valid points in a bag of polished spheres than there were in that post.

Point to note - nobody thinks Zimmerman murdered Martin anyway. A few argued manslaughter but just about everyone I can tell has accepted the verdict irrespective of how they felt about it.

Libtards. You conservatives really are a bunch of insufferable c*nts, aren't you?

Looked at your link. Read the first hundred comments. Read the testimony of Good that was put up on the site. Quality site.

Can you tell me where anyone here, whether in agreement or otherwise-is suggesting that Martin was 'a saintly child walking home with his skittles and ice tea'?

I can only assume that those who are critical of these hordes who have suggested that Martin was a 'saintly child...etc' are the same who think that he was not, thus he deserved what he got because of what this witness said he saw??

There is opinion after opinion here, based on 'I think' and 'if'.

Zimmerman should not have exited the vehicle.
There was a marked reluctance to bring this case to Trial.
I hope that a Civil action will now be brought against him.

From your own article:

"Unlike George Zimmerman, Scott was immediately arrested after the shooting and charged with murder. A grand jury later reduced the charge to first-degree manslaughter. The jury deliberated for about 19 hours before rendering a verdict of not guilty on December 18, 2009."

The cases are as similar as two completely dissimilar things in a pod.

Someone in this thread is a 'tard, but not the one who thinks he isn't ...
