    I see it took the foreign press to break this part of the story. Sounds like a real juvenille delinquent.

    He had a "a bag full of women's jewelry" in school. No wonder, Zimmerman thought he was up to no good.

    It wasn't his. He was holding it for a friend. He was a good boy.

    Did you see the repost of his Twitter tweets? Full-on gangsta-thug wannabe.

    No, he called him in as a suspicious person who looked like he was on drugs walking in a neighborhood with a history of break-ins. What is clear is that the representation of Trayvon (tm) as an angel in the media is not accurate.

    I don't think anybody is claiming that is contributes to Zimmerman's justification - the part where his head was being beaten against the sidewalk, while he yelled for help, before shooting Trayvon as he tried to take his gun, covers that.

    The point of the background info on Trayvon is to dispute the initial, "he was a good little boy just out for a bag of skittles, when he was attacked" BS. In other words, it doesn't tell us what he did, but it tells us about his character, which supports Zimmerman's claim in the face of the claims by others that he was an innocent angel.

    No, because Zimmerman is not a police officer working from a profile. If you are using the lefty slang, where profiling means "racism" then you are overlooking the fact that, as Zimmerman said, he recognized him as someone who did not live in the gated community where he was on neighborhood watch. That's what neighborhood watch does.

    I think Zimmerman was probably an idiot who I wouldn't like in real life, but that doesn't mean I have to agree with people making up nonsense about this case.

    Sounds like Zimmerman should be getting a medal.

    Just saying Zimmerman couldn't have used that in deciding , "Zimmerman thought he was up to no good"

  13. Well now the bleeding heart liberals will have to change their tactics from he was an angel to misunderstood youth or he had turned his life around just a few hours before his death.

    Not at all weird. This is a pattern that the media constantly repeats. First they bull**** the fools with a load of liberal bilge, straight out of the Poverty Pimp Handbook; then the truth slowly trickles out.

    As far as I know, we don't yet know what led to trayvon attacking Zimmerman.

    We just know that trayvon broke his nose and was banging his head against the ground before he was shot. The details are there, but it's too early to make a stand defending either of them.

    I never took a stand defending either one of them. Im only interested in this case as a self-defense case.
