    Did you mean about following, if so I agree. If there is no law against following someone then it isn't illegal.

    Or must you keep a car length for every 10 mph someone walks? ;)

    There was testimony by RJ, where she says TM said something to the effect of "get off, get off". What does this mean? We have no eyewitnesses to the start of the confrontation, we only have GZ's statements. Who would admit to starting the confrontation if they had just killed someone? GZ had everything to gain by making this statement. This is a one sided, skewed trial because one of the two involved is not present to give a statement. GZ and TM are the only ones who truly know what happened and only one of them has anything to gain or lose at this time. IMO

    What evidence, beyond reasonable doubt proves that Trayvon started the confrontation? IMO

    ETA: if I were a juror, I would probably be responsible for hanging the jury. I would have reasonable doubt both ways. IMO

    The weapon was loaded with a magazine of bullets. It requires two hands, forethought, and a sliding motion on his gun to load a bullet into firing position. He couldn't have pinned to the ground.
    I believe the fight was to gain control of the gun.
    Screaming from both men.
    Recoil broke Zimmerman's nose and his head hit the water cover.
    Trayvon dies.

    How old does an assailant have to be before one is allowed to defend one's self? And how exactly is the person being assaulted supposed to ascertain the assailant's ageĀ… ask for ID? JMO. OMO. MOO.

    I'll just say, NBC (and the other media) did their job well when this case started last year.

    Yes, it will be considered. I had always thought it was on the table to begin with, since 2nd degree was never a solitary charge (they can consider anything up to and including that). Imo, that's probably why the used such a heavy charge in the first place.

    Then your family is lucky. There are many families that can't say the same and it may have turned out differently if they would have had a weapon. Just because you don't get it doesn't mean others should do what you think. Some people aren't strong enough to fight an attacker with a knife. Gun puts smaller women, people handicaps etc on a equal ground.

    And I seriously can't imagine you being raped or kidnapped and not fear for your life much less say you feared for you life. If you didn't in those situations then you probably have a mental disorder.

    I would have to consider the testimony of the gym owner, who implied if not directly stated that GZ could not throw a punch. IMO

    All I can say about this mornings proceedings is that I find it very disconcerting how hard the state is trying to mislead the jury with these jury instructions. MOO.

    Can you link the case law where assaulting/throwing a punch at someone is legal in the cases you stated?

    Guess we both need to relax since we are not on the jury. It is so scary to know trumped up charges could be brought against any one of us. Let's pray the jury sees this for what it is and acquits Mr. Zimmerman.

    That's odd, with all due respect, given how many times I read here that the Judge just " spanked the state again. " Hmmmm IMO

    Personally, I think children are maturing earlier and earlier so maybe the definition of "child" should be revisited.

    Is there a recording of this statement, or do we only have GZ's word on what was said?
