That is exactly right, and anyone with a brain, even IF they don't think Zimmerman is 100% innocent on this, would see that "something" doesn't add up and your reasonable doubt is easily established.

Just saying.
Well, the one interview that I saw, they stated he believes he was the aggressor, and that he is paranoia, but would have to examine him for a full report. Sure, it was speculation on the doctors part, but in many cases, a person in his field can make an initial diagnosis based on the behavior he sees and move forward with a more complete diagnosis...

Just saying.

It is simply AMAZING to me that people are still going off on this entire racial issue. The fact of the matter is that the media did everything in their power to fuel racial animosity. They used dated photos of both men, portrayed Zimmerman as being white (despite being latin), and they even doctored the damn 911 call to fit that bill.. all so they could sell more newspapers and further black on white anger to help with Obama's reelection....

You guys who are still buying that this is some example of racism in this country are blind idiots. This was an angry, bitter, frustrated kid with a history of vandalism and robbery. He was in the wrong place, at the wrong time, and was confronted by an individual who is potentially mentally unstable... it's that simple.

The most retarded phrase in this whole thread is "good shoot." Maybe you spell lose "loose?" Shot only has one o. Well, that was good shoot. Most retarded phrase in the English language.

Edit: I agree with Chase.^^^ Amazing!
Edit II: except the paranoid irrational part about Obama's reelection. That is Zimmerman level paranoia, right thar. ;-)

Noob. Good shoot is not the same is "good shot." Good shot implies a well placed hit. Good shoot implied a legal (not criminal) shooting.

Then explain his race baiting comments....if I had a son he'd be like Trevon too...implying, that the ONLY thing his son and Treyvon would have in common is the color of their skin.

Oh, and it seems many here don't understand why Zimmerman was never arrested and charged. Here is a piece of the Stand Your Ground Law that you can read, and understand....they CANNOT charge him, because they do NOT have enough evidence. If they don't GET the evidence, he will NEVER be charged.

Quote:
776.032***8195;Immunity from criminal prosecution and civil action for justifiable use of force.-
(1)***8195;A person who uses force as permitted in s. 776.012, s. 776.013, or s. 776.031 is justified in using such force and is immune from criminal prosecution and civil action for the use of such force, unless the person against whom force was used is a law enforcement officer, as defined in s. 943.10(14), who was acting in the performance of his or her official duties and the officer identified himself or herself in accordance with any applicable law or the person using force knew or reasonably should have known that the person was a law enforcement officer. As used in this subsection, the term "criminal prosecution" includes arresting, detaining in custody, and charging or prosecuting the defendant.
(2)***8195;A law enforcement agency may use standard procedures for investigating the use of force as described in subsection (1), but the agency may not arrest the person for using force unless it determines that there is probable cause that the force that was used was unlawful.
(3)***8195;The court shall award reasonable attorney's fees, court costs, compensation for loss of income, and all expenses incurred by the defendant in defense of any civil action brought by a plaintiff if the court finds that the defendant is immune from prosecution as provided in subsection (1).

Although it was also a "good shot", in that it was a shot that immediately ended the conflict.

I don't care if it's a legal term or only a term used by gun-toting rednecks, still retarded. I don't mean any offense if you or someone you know is mentally handicapped.

No, he said "If I had a son he would look like Trayvon". I still find it odd that the POTUS chose to comment on such a localized issue, but let's at least get the main quotes right.

And for those of us looking closely, you will notice I did not use quotation marks, which means, it was not a direct quote. Your DIRECT quote serves the same purpose, the POTUS saying that if he had a son, he would be "black."

I do agree that stirring racial tensions is something Obama would benefit from. Blacks aren't as gung-ho about this election and the white house has made it clear that they noticed. They have been actively trying to get blacks interested again, and a murdering whitey is just what the doctor ordered.

I can't see the actual brain, so it's not enough for deadly force. I think one MUST see noodle in a court of law to "fear for their life."
