I don't have those answers. Perhaps it will come out during the trial.
Where have I posted that? Quotes were getting mixed up earlier.
There is no evidence to suggest Trayvon went for the gun.
I respectfully disagree with you. My hearing is pretty close to perfect since my eyesight is so bad. I can tell you what is going on in another room that I can not see into from the sounds I hear. A decision is being made about what a witness could possibly hear when we have no idea how well she can actually hear.
I do not or have never tolerated my children speaking like these kids do. So, my kids have spoken like that around their friends, without me knowing. You can't police everything. Kids are kids...they do not speak with their friends like they do with their parents. Come on...even I said things bad when my parents weren't around. It's called being a teenager. Also, with all the music, videos and the carp they spew in them, it's not difficult to understand where kids get if from. Some kids think it's cool, then they grow up. There should be a different standard for GZ, he is an adult.
Belated :welcome: Moonie!
It's as factual as alleging that Zimmerman was out to kill Martin, that Zimmerman tried to apprehend Martin, that Zimmerman had racial motivations, that Zimmerman was just itching to kill someone, that Zimmerman was running around with his gun out, that Zimmerman made overt threats towards Martin.
That is my only point.
a grown man who gets out of his car and goes on a foot chase trying to catch a teenager - don't you think at that point TM was in fear for his life???
His nose looks fine
Thank you voice of empathy and reason!!!
TM had the right to ask a question; I never said he did not.
Natasha Richardson's head "looked fine".
You said he was stalking him when there is no evidence of that.
That's because she WAS stalking Travis. This is a totally different case.
If you are going to say that George was even stalking him, You need evidence to back up your claim.
When I saw that you were going to post a "long post" and wanted to make sure the thread would stay open, it made me smile and I patiently waited, knowing it would be right on the money! Thank you!! :rockon:
a 30 something year old man gets out of his car and chases a teenager thru the dark backyard area of the town homes - can you really tell me you don't think TM didn't feel that was an imminent threat??? especially when tm asked gz why was he following him and gz wouldn't tell him??? how would he know this was not some crazy psycho??
not a crime if you're scared enough !
bbm do you mean a death sentence for TM???
Considering he had a head-start on Zimmerman, and disappeared from Zimmerman... Yeah, I'd say he retreated and was able to retreat. That's not an imminent threat.
Exactly. And really would it have been so difficult for Zimmerman to simply say something to the effect of I am with the neighborhood watch? That would have diffused the situation and then nothing more would have happened that night. Trayvon would not have been shot and killed and Zimmerman would not be on trial for 2nd degree murder.
Not if he was right by his father's place and had more than enough time to get back to where he was staying at.
Do you honestly think George would have been able to keep up with Trayvon, esp. since he did not know where he went?
I would think that shooting a minor for a punch in the nose might also be considered a crime.
Time will tell.
I tend to think that GZ was feeling brave with the knowledge that he had his weapon to use if any problems arose so indeed did confront Martin and possibly tried to detain him/hence the possible punch in the nose from Martin.
