Lair...picture this scenario.....

A young boy just walked his girlfriend home and was about to walk back home. This young boy is sort of your typical teenager but has minor problems at school like suspensions for drug posessions , swinging at a bus driver, etc. He looks like a thug , gangster wannabe on his facebook photos and posts multiple times about getting high and getting in trouble. Now , that day he walked his girlfriend home he did nothing bad except look suspiciously to some neighborhood watchman that also had some minor issues but is a contributing member of society and does everything right. Now he is driving home and sees this boy who fits the description of multiple persons who frequently visit and cause mayhem in his neighborhood. He follows the boy until the boy catches wind of it and confronts the watchman. Words are exchanged and nobody knows what happens next but the boy ends up dead and the watchman is bruised and little bloodied. Obviously the watchman fired an killed the boy. Now the boy was unarmed and the watchman was in legal possesion of a firearm. Now imagine the boy is a wealthy white kid and the watchman is a black guy trying to get his life on track from previous mishaps.

Zimmerman has been arrested for assaulting a police officer and for domestic violence. In addition, he reportedly lost his job as a bouncer because of his temper. A onetime coworker of Zimmerman told the New York Daily News:
"He had a temper and he became a liability," he recalled. "One time this woman was acting a little out of control. She was drunk. George lost his cool and totally overreacted. ... It was weird, because he was such a cool guy, but he got all nuts. He picked her up and threw her. It was pure rage. She twisted her ankle. Everyone was flipping out."

That happened in 2005, the same year he faced charges of "resisting officer with violence" and "battery of law enforcement officer." He got the charges dropped by undertaking an alcohol education program. Knowing that Zimmerman had a pattern of violence certainly casts doubt on his version of events and that racism alone motivated the killing of Trayvon.
You tell me.

The state of FL obviously didn't deem him a violent enough person to take him to trial and find him guilty, so it must not have been a huge incident in the eyes of the law. That would have prevented him from owning a handgun or qualifying for a CCW permit.

Is he violent or does he have a temper at all? Sure, but most people do given the right circumstance. Trying to project that onto the case involving Martin is weak at best.

If he had been convicted previously it would carry a lot more weight if I were on the jury.

Most juries won't care because he weaseled out of it by attending an alcohol treatment program.

I agree. But what was the point of the questions you asked, then?

It was towards NFR who seems to proclaim Zimmerman's innocence with false authority. When in fact, as it stands, Zimmerman is guilty of homicide (through a body and a confession). What is a matter of debate is whether this homicide is justified on not.

This is where your understanding of the law fails you. He is not guilty of anything. Read the statute 50 more times and maybe you will begin to understand it.

What's inconceivable about not believing a murderer's version of events?

The guy stalked and killed another human being, and you're willing to take his word for anything?
