Default Re: Trayvon Martin Case

People are really still arguing about this decision and what happened that night? I mean didn't the eyewitness statements and pathologist reports pretty much confirm zims story? Zim obviously was over zealous and made a mistake that night, and im sure he'd be the first to admit that, but what he did was not illegal and it didn't seem racially motivated (my opinion of course, could be wrong, but even if I am it's not illegal to be racist).

It's really astonishing how people will eat up this media narrative they were fed and hold onto it, even in the face of overwhelming evidence. Please people just move on with this case, it is nothing but a scare tactic by inept media that is creating tension between two groups of people based on something as trivial as the pigmentation of skin.

Nope. There was barely any eyewitnesses. The best one was John Good and he only saw like 8-10 seconds of it and he couldn't exactly tell what was going on.

He's done nothing but lie his ass off trying to distance himself from as much responsibility as possible. In his interview with Hannity, he says he did nothing wrong and it was all "God's plan".

There's no overwhelming evidence for either side. Have you followed the case at all?

There's more to the case than the media BS.

i don't think that tea-partier of a cartoonist, michael ramirez, got the memo on that yet.

going by his work he seems to think he's side by side with sam adams dumping crates in to boston harbor.

And that eye witness report seems to support zims claim did it not? Also you seem to not address the pathologist which also confirmed zims story. These two pieces of evidence should be enough to show zims story, at least the end of it, was true. Everything leading up to the end, is all assumption. What isn't assumption is no injuries to trayvon other than the finger, which indicates that zim never hit trayvon.

There of course is inconsistencies in zims story. Whether he's lying or just unsure is a moot point. The facts, that we can gather from the eyewitness and pathologist, along with the autopsy indicate trayvon was on top of zim punching him and zims head was at least bouncing on the concrete. Zim then shot trayvon, who was on top of him. Everything else is just speculation and had no business in a court of law.

You may think zim is this super criminal that masterminded this whole murder of innocent trayvon, like some people seem to think on here. Or you think zim was this hero who gunned down this thug to protect himself and community. I personally think two dumb people made a series of dumb decisions that led to the death of one. It's sad that a 17 year old was gunned down, but this really should not be news. And it especially should not have gotten the attention it did.

@gigantes - I'm confused. In one sentence she says 'we followed the law and evidence' but in the next sentence she states 'he got away with murder'...

Is she saying that Zimmerman is MORALLY guilty? Because if she is, I think everybody agrees w/ that... it just doesn't hold any relevancy in the court of law.

"That's where I felt confused, where if a person kills someone, then you get charged for it," Maddy said. "But as the law was read to me, if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can't say he's guilty."

This quote pretty much explains it. Although the fact that she said the trial shouldn't have even happened is more confusing.
