    clearly you are buying George's story; first of all if you read the med records you will see that it was not determined that George's nose was broken; the next day when he went to a doctor (yes the next day cause he didn't get medical treatment that night for his "grievous injuries"). they said nose"likely broken"; secondly he had two small lacerations on the back of his head. if someone's head is bashed against concrete don't you think they would have a headache and symptoms that required hospitalization? if you look at the video of George at the police station shortly after the incident he is walking fine, no evidence of swaying or dizziness; he looks perfectly normal. Please think about his story instead of buying it without investigating the evidence. it appears there was a scuffle of some sort but IMO not the way George describes it.

    I would be in fear of a strange man. But not in fear of my life.

    In such instances, you have a legally-obligated duty to retreat in Florida.

    You must follow more cases that aren't high profile;)

    Where's the evidence that he persued him? He stopped and there is no other credible evidence to suggest he didn't, even the own state can't say he did not return to his vehicle.

    You can because what Trayvon did is illegal and a crime

    Yes, in the case of sensory disability, the brain learns to compensate. But people accustomed to multisensory recognition must be taught unimodal recognition, which I doubt any of the state's ear witnesses has. As of yet, the state has supplied not one witness who was present during the altercation and who can provide a real time, firsthand account of what happened. JMO, OMO, MOO.

    Of course you can. It's obvious that he sustained serious injuries.

    Well evidently he's infallible to some people, regardless of what filth came from his mouth.

    No, you cannot shoot someone for merely punching you in the nose.

    That's never been the issue Karmady. Not being charged with something doesn't mean it didn't happen. Rapes, child abductions, murders, DV all go unreported and uncharged.
    Stalking is a behavior that gets charged if reported and the kid was dead so all reports at the scene were from GZ who had lots of secondary gain reasons for switching things up. It does matter very much if GZ was taking repeated actions like following in a car, then on foot here and there while TM was walking home and TM was scared enough to tell his friend and about and god forbid confront his stalker over it.

    Sorry, you right, I remember him saying that now.

    this case can get so confusing at times.

    That is correct- he said Trayvon slid his arm down GZ's body. It stuck out, because it sounded so weird. Who would take time to do that and why would they - in the midst of a fight? And you'd be losing control over the person under you.
    Also, both grabbing the gun and the the positioning of the bullet does not jibe with Trayvon sitting on GZ as GZ described. There is so much that is very implausible in GZs story.

    Agreed. For all we know GZ could have tripped and fell on the sidewalk while trying to detain TM. Then got up and continued to pursue. There are a number of scenarios that could have happened. It's too hard to say what really took place.

    TM was a teenager and might well have been in fear of a grown man who was obviously intent on keeping him in his sights.
    I wish GZ had retreated.
    IMO

    I'm pretty sure the state would have charged him with stalking in addition to everything else if the elements of the crime were actually met.

    It wasn't a crime if he was defending himself. Just like you say GZ shooting an unarmed kid isn't a crime if he was defending himself.

    IMO if GZ wasn't acting so tough in the first place none of this would have happened. He called police, that's it, it's all he needs to do. Since when is it a good idea to follow a "suspicious" person. And I don't for one minute that Mr NW go to guy didn't know what street he was on either. And don't even get me started with the "you're gonna die tonight" that sounds like a line from a movie. It is ridiculous. In the various interviews it sounds like GZ is trying to justify his actions. "He was banging my head on concrete, He put his hands over my mouth and nose, I thought he was reaching for the gun, I was the one yelling for help, he's staring at me, he seems like he's on drugs, he has something in his hand, he reaching in his waistband" which is it? It seems like the throw everything against the wall and see what sticks defense.

    TM was walking home from a store, talking to his friend on the phone. You do realize that ultimately he died for nothing. They both made bad mistakes however only one of them is dead. So please stop crucifying this kid as some evil **** when there is no evidence of that yet. The only person's word that we have that TM did any of these things is the man accused of causing his death.

    Thanks Linda! Sure doesn't look broken to me. Even his own PA, said it "might" be broken. I don't think it was, but that is JMO!

    I don't see where people are saying he had "lumps" all over his head. He looks like most bald guys I know. Heads are perfectly smooth, they have bumps all over them. His bumps look even when compared to the other side of his head. Again, JMO.

    Head wounds bleed like crazy, so do broken noses. The lack of blood tells me they weren't that serious and certainly NOT from getting his head pounded against the concrete. I ask again, where was the concrete? The sidewalk was so far away.

    When looking at GZ's wounds, we have to remember that Travyon had no notable marks on this right hand, which was dominate. His left had had a 1/4" abrasion..that is IT! If you punch someone, you punch them with your dominate hand and you would certainly have marks on your hands!

    There is just something off with these "wounds" compared to the "story", compared to the evidence. JMO

    I also don't think someone should have been attacked just because they wanted to know where a suspicious person went and what they were doing in their neighboorhood after recent break ins.
