    I would tend to agree.
    It wasn't my understanding this occurred in the ghetto where people are shot almost daily.

    ya....did you READ my post? That is NOT what I said to your first issue, on second, I am convinced Trayvon was not a victim by legal definition.

    And YES, teens can be dangerous.

    I believe he lied about not knowing the Stand Your Ground laws. I beleive in a cop interview he said he didn't know anything about them, refuted by the teacher of his criminal justice class. I do not have links handy

    And to me, that's a biggie.

    Right. Fingernail scrapings are used to determine whether the scrapee was defending his or her self and to identify the attacker. They obviously were checking to see if Trayvon had been defending himself and found no evidence of that.

    MeeBee,
    I walked everywhere as a child, as a small girl. But things are so different now and we were poor and lived in bad neighborhoods. I do fault parents for not teaching their children safety and cautiousness and respecting ones property, and respecting LE. I certainly do. Every once in a while you have a child who is a sociopath that was likely born that way, like convicted murderer Jodi Arias.....but mostly we have young children who are never supervised, never disciplined, never taught respect. And they are the generation coming up who would just as soon rob you blind as to go to work or take responsibility. Because of it, no one is safe to walk around at night.

    So there is no longer a choice to own a gun or not in Nelson, GA?

    Having a loaded gun makes any coward less fearful. I don't believe a word Zimmerman has to say. His treatment and perjury about the money proves that he is not a morally upstanding guy. The phone calls with his wife and the "code terms" prove that. Given that, you've got to find him somehow credible in order to believe his version of events. I just don't. He has every reason and the knowledge of the law to cover his "self defense". I thought the last Prosecutor was very powerful in his delivery.

    IN MY OPINION.

    There is still a *LACK* of evidence that TM caused all of GZ's injuries. JG saw "one man on top and up and down arm motions", he didn't see TM punch or slam GZ. We know for a fact that TM & GZ had a physical encounter at some point, but NO EVIDENCE that TM caused GZ's injuries. It's a conjecture. All of those scenarios I mentioned cannot be ruled out. IMO.

    I don't think defense wanted to make an issue of that because of what JG stated from the beginning that TM said about "he found me" after TM said he was close to his father's house. This would open up speculation that maybe GZ did go down Retreat Circle to head TM off and that they were running back towards the T when the fight started. We will never know and defense did not want to go there for sure. jmo

    Great post, Chris. I agree with you 100%. If Trayvon had been white, we wouldn't be here. Hope this day brings justice for Trayvon and his family. My heart breaks for them.

    Then where did the cuts on GZ's nose come from?

    It could take up to an hour to read the jury instructions, according to Bill Sheaffer on WFTV.

    http://www.wftv.com/s/zimmerman-livestream/

    JMO, but with Judge Nelson's speed reading, I think it may only take half that time.

    Personally, after watching many trials, I like it when a judge reads jury instructions more slowly, and doesn't rush it, as I consider the jury instructions to be extremely important.

    Furthermore, when a judge reads the jury instructions so rapidly that she herself stumbles over the words, I think it's a good indication that she needs to slooow down. MOO

    Linda, I understand where you are coming from and why you are defending teens. I have a lot of grandchildren in the 14 to 22 age group. And four grown children who were teens once. I live ten miles from Louisville, KY where teens are out every night and some of them are dead every morning. This is every single day. It breaks my heart. Why aren't they at home? Either home life is unbearable or no parent is there to supervise.

    Apartment complexes/condo facilities with any type of NW really should make it a point that residents let them know of a new family member or friend on the premises, so tragedies like this may be less likely to occur. It would just make sense to do this. IMO
