A newer photo of the teen than the picture from when he was 14. FWIW he has not played football since 14 years old from what I read.

Don't hold yer breath folks. The MSM would never admit they took the wildfire and added unnecessary gasoline to it. The Duke La Crosse case is an excellent example of it where the MSM attempted to bury it quickly.

This gets more interesting by the day.

So at the moment there is no reason for me to believe that he has any criminal history...

Stand your ground

Just a small question to consider:

What if Trayvon was standing HIS ground against what HE thought was an attacker with unknown intent?

Just food for thought.

There is no reason to think either way.

The guy was 17 years old and in High School.

I find it strange that the lawyers for the teen objected to autopsy blood tests, and that the teen was on a 5 day suspention for just being tardy to school.

The big issue with this case is the media and black community have made it a circus and there are little facts.

Lets say neither one has any convictions for any crimes.

I dont think this has to do with the "Stand your ground" law for property/etc.... I think this has to do with plain old self defense.

I think based on reading between the B.S. that both parties did what they though was right, and one died.

I can not see where one violated a law untill the girlfriend says the teen made comments to Mr Z and then a head set fell out. That might be hard to prove to show what happened next.

Both could have been justified in there actions.

I do question what Mr Z's injuries were. That would open a lot of light for me.

I'll answer your question, with a question: what if Trayvon the aggressor?

I think that the fact that there are little facts is what has helped lead to the outrage...

I feel like it was handled poorly and the police did a poor job getting ahead of this. I didn't understand why they were so quiet initially...

One article said nearly or almost 100lbs more, based on the police report he is 5’9”. The police report didn’t show his weight. http://www.sanfordfl.gov/investigati...l%20Report.pdf




PS - In general,
This memo from the city may be informative: http://www.sanfordfl.gov/investigation/docs/Zimmerman_Martin_shooting.pdf

They’ve also posted some of the burglary reports: http://www.sanfordfl.gov/investigation/docs/BurglaryReports.pdf (don’t laugh too hard about the flat screen Sonny Bravia on pg 9)

It's under the NYS Penal Law code for harassment.

S 240.26 Harassment in the second degree.
A person is guilty of harassment in the second degree when, with
intent to harass, annoy or alarm another person:
1. He or she strikes, shoves, kicks or otherwise subjects such other
person to physical contact, or attempts or threatens to do the same; or
2. He or she follows a person in or about a public place or places; or
3. He or she engages in a course of conduct or repeatedly commits acts
which alarm or seriously annoy such other person and which serve no
legitimate purpose.
Subdivisions two and three of this section shall not apply to
activities regulated by the national labor relations act, as amended,
the railway labor act, as amended, or the federal employment labor
management act, as amended.
Harassment in the second degree is a violation.
