    Ok, we realize this is a VERY important topic and that everyone wants to discuss it. That said, we don't need eleventy billion threads, and flame wars going on. I will allow this ONE THREAD to stay open for any Zimmerman/Martin discussion, AS LONG AS EVERYONE REMAINS CIVIL AND WITHIN THE TOS.

    Have at it, but once it's gone, it's gone until something really new and newsworthy comes up about it.

    He doesnt look like a killer. What he needs is a good sleep and a good lawyer. He has his plate full.

    Whether or not he is a killer is not up for debate, he is one. It is whether he was justified in that killing that is the crux of this case.

    Why the selective outrage and revenge talk from the black community when according to US Justice Dept Stats, on average, every week well over 100 blacks are murdered by other blacks?

    These black on black murders don't even get a peep from the media or the black community.

    Z is being accused based on affidavits for probable cause, which investigators allege Z followed M up to and including Z actually INITIATING a confrontation with M.

    Exactly. This news cycle is so annoying. I'll be glad when we've moved on to something else.

    I am apt to believe this version.

    I know of individuals who have pursued 'Zimmerman' type of action. There are certain psychological threads of commonality with Z-Man. One leads them to play Captain America/police officer occasionally.

    I will say this - if he is found not guilty I will be avoiding major metropolitan areas as much as possible for a few days after that, and won't go anywhere unarmed. Many people have chosen what they believe happened, and no amount of evidence will make them believe differently.

    The facts are still not all out but I believe his being charged has more to do with Florida being embarassed by the attention and less to do with what actually happened.

    Why do certain crimes call for a "Special Prosecutor?" Why is this kid's death any more important than any other death?

    Stick a fork in him, he's done. I hope he ends up with the best lawyer publicity can buy, cause he won't have enough money. :duel:

    Here....right now.
    I believe its because they can't sell papers or air time over a non controversial event like that. It's sick , greedy and demented of them, but I think its true.

    I said that when this first came out. If Z initiated the conflict Martin could have been acting in self-defense himself. That would bring into question the justification of the deadly force employed by Z if he was the initial aggressor.

    Or "Rev" (I've always found that title more than a bit funny, it's as if Jesse told him his word would carry more weight with the "Rev" tacked on in front of his name....his audience seems to care a lot about such things) Al Sharpton is more like it. Shucks.....I remember him running around in jogging suits with massive amounts of gold chains, that was his audience's wear du jour at the time.


    IMO, Zimmerman is toast. He has the rather unlucky option of becoming the left's target to see if it can still shape all things societal if it desires......and boy howdy it sure does seem to desire to do so. So now, IMO he must pay the price of letting the left do such things as solicit murder via "Bounty".....just to prove to it's self that it still can get away with such nonsense. Seems every election year it must ramp up it's "base" by doing something to stir their "race war" dreams that they've held for so long now.

    He'll get life.....bet on it.

    Will this be like OJ 2012? He'll be acquitted and that'll be that. Riots will ensue. I dont know if he was justified but I think it's retarded how this is somehow a racial thing. The media outlets that try to make it racial are the ones who call him white, or "white-Hispanic" to try and make it an us versus them thing.

    But there is no US and there is no THEM, just race baiters who want to stir the pot.

    Soon we will be hearing of a new phenomenon called , Zimmerman Fever. AN uncontrollable urge to engage a suspicious person based on the way suspect dressed, be it a hoodie, skirt, sagging pants, tattoe clad body, etc.
