@ YOU asking for proof.

You're making the claim. You provide the proof.

What is there to prove? Zimmerman initiated when he started following Martin through his own neighborhood. He even called the cops and told them he was following him.

You can make up your own scenario if you want, but the only person that knows anything else about it was murdered by George Zimmerman.

Did George Zimmerman shot Martin?

What is there to prove? Thought it was pretty clear that your claim is what you need to provide proof for.

You claim GZ was stalking TM. You claim GZ murdered TM.

Following =/= stalking. Following =/= starting a fight. Following =/= justification for assault.

Prove your claim that GZ was stalking under FL law. Prove your claim that the killing was murder under FL law.

So everyone that fatally shoots another person is guilty of murder?

Yes...what matters is whether the circumstances surrounding the shooting were justifiable.

Yes, but *most* people use them interchangeably (even though it is incorrect). Regardless what we know is Zimmerman shot Martin and Martin is dead. A homicide occurred. Whether it was justifiable is a matter of speculation and obviously debate..

"The neighborhood watchman" = a known violent thug who was looking for trouble - and found it when he killed a 17 year old kid who was armed with a bag of Skittles.

A known violent thug (in the eyes of the law) would not legally be allowed to own a handgun or have a valid CCW permit.

So you're saying Zimmerman doesn't have a history of domestic abuse?

No he does not. It was all alleged because his ex fiance accused him of it. I can accuse you of rape, doesnt make it true.

You tell me since you're the one that made the claim.

I'm simply stating that if he had a violent criminal record he would not be allowed to purchase a handgun and/or obtain a CCW permit.

Since he had both, I'm concluding that he likely does not have a violent criminal history. And if he did have a violent history, why wasn't he charged in a court of law and found guilty?
