Thats all it really boils down to.
The only person who can answer this is Zimmerman, so his story will dictate the ultimate outcome.

yes, my opinion has changed. i originally believed that zimmerman should be convicted of manslaughter. after arguing with people in this thread i am enraged and hope that he gets first degree murder and sentenced to the electric chair.

There was the recent document dump that has given everyone a lot to talk about and basically crapped on lair's constant assertions that Zimmerman was not injured AT ALL during the incident. As a result he has changed his positions to:

1. He self-inflicted the wounds
2. The police were in on it
3. He's a just pu$$y who deserved to get his ass kicked

Depending on his mood, of course.

You mean those massive wounds that couldn't be seen on a video camera?

Just curious Lair, how old are you and what do you do for a living ?


Why are you filled with so much hate and continue to ignore the facts and the obvious ? Were you abandoned as a child ?

Arguing with lair is completely useless. It's like trying to have an intelligent conversation with Brick Tamland from Anchorman.

You're damn straight I hate a guy who got away with murder.

I know that's business as usual for you texans, but it's a load of shlt to some us who don't wear cowboy hats.

Keep taking that killer's word. Maybe one day you'll be on the other side of the equation. I'll defend you, too.

I will guess that he keeps as much about himself secret as possible because he's a classic "anonymous internal a$$hole", found on message boards everywhere.

I'm twelve, and I've never seen a pudgy thug with a tiny dick and a gun before.

Is the trial already over?

What do you think of OJ?

Hate him too.

What does that have to do with Zimmerman and the sheep who think he's telling the truth?

Wondered if you were going to defend him.

Zimmerman and sheep must be a whole nother story.

How do you know he is NOT telling the truth? There is absolutly no way to prove that. But why not wait for the trial?

Maybe, but not necessarily his story by itself.

There's no dispute that Z shot M. The question is, was it self defense? If not, then Z committed a crime. If it was, then Z didn't commit a crime.

So a judge/jury has to listen to Z's story, look at the physical evidence, listen to the witnesses and lawyers and decide a few things. The solution set isn't that complicated, assuming he's been charged correctly:

- Z is telling the truth, and any reasonable person in Z's position would have felt the need to defend themselves = Z is not guilty.

- Z is telling the truth, but was unreasonable in feeling the need to defend himself = Z is guilty.

- Z is not telling the truth, but the jury cannot conclude beyond a reasonable doubt what really happened was a crime = Z is not guilty.

- Z is not telling the truth and the jury does conclude beyond a reasonable doubt that what really happened was a crime = Z is guilty.

So assessing Z's story is only step 1 in the final outcome. Here's something that will really make the Z-haters heads explode: its possible Z is lying but still isn't guilty.
