@gigantes - I'm confused. In one sentence she says 'we followed the law and evidence' but in the next sentence she states 'he got away with murder'...

Is she saying that Zimmerman is MORALLY guilty? Because if she is, I think everybody agrees w/ that... it just doesn't hold any relevancy in the court of law.

"That's where I felt confused, where if a person kills someone, then you get charged for it," Maddy said. "But as the law was read to me, if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can't say he's guilty."

This quote pretty much explains it. Although the fact that she said the trial shouldn't have even happened is more confusing.

There of course is inconsistencies in zims story. Whether he's lying or just unsure is a moot point. The facts, that we can gather from the eyewitness and pathologist, along with the autopsy indicate trayvon was on top of zim punching him and zims head was at least bouncing on the concrete. Zim then shot trayvon, who was on top of him. Everything else is just speculation and had no business in a court of law.

You may think zim is this super criminal that masterminded this whole murder of innocent trayvon, like some people seem to think on here. Or you think zim was this hero who gunned down this thug to protect himself and community. I personally think two dumb people made a series of dumb decisions that led to the death of one. It's sad that a 17 year old was gunned down, but this really should not be news. And it especially should not have gotten the attention it did.

done deal.

Let's close this thread and move on to how Zimmerman saved a family from a overturn truck that was leaking gas.

yup... it seemed pretty clear to me, also.

her POV is that in the real world he murdered a teenager, but was forced to abide by florida law... forced to acquit. therefore no practical cause for a case, other than the CYA (cover your ass) principle.

my own POV is that she's wrong about it being murder, but florida law is not necessarily the end-all of the real world.

Not exactly. There were conflicting statements from eyewitnesses. Some said Zim was on top. It's just that Good was the best eyewitness and he basically indicated that TM was on top. Even so, all that indicates was that TM was on top for at least a portion of the altercation. Nobody really got a good look of what was happening because it was too dark.

Quote:

What about him? He said the shot was at 90, and it was likely that TM was hanging over Zim at the time of the shot (he didn't exclude the possibility that TM was backing away at the time of the shot).

Quote:

How so? There's nothing to say it was true. Nobody saw the end of the fight. Zim himself said he doesn't even know how it all went down.

Quote:

What's your point?

Quote:

False.

Quote:

His head could have hit the concrete when they were wrestling around or it could have hit another hard surface on the ground. The ground isn't always soft.

Quote:

False.

Quote:

Why in the hell would he need to be a super criminal that masterminded this whole thing? Why couldn't it just be that he panicked and shot TM? Why couldn't it be he used rather poor judgment and shot TM? Why couldn't it be he got caught up in the heat of the moment and shot TM?

Quote:

There was multiple things about this case. The family was outraged that Zim wasn't arrested so they did what they could to get it attention, others latched on and put whatever racial spin on it that they could. It's not just race, there's also aspects of gun control and self defense/SYG laws that interested people about this. Also, I think the circumstances of the whole thing was also interesting. Hell, the first cop on the scene was said to have arrived just 5 seconds after the gun shot.

The percentage of people that were interested in this case for those reasons is real minuscule compared to those who jumped on like blind sheep due to the media and other "leaders".

He was. Thug stole 3k worth of weapons and was using taking the trash out as a cover up for a heroin deal.

“We certainly would not have advised him to go to the factory that made the gun that he used to shoot Trayvon Martin through the heart,” Shawn Vincent, a spokesman for attorney Mark O’Mara, told Yahoo News. “That was not part of our public relations plan.”
