It's a f*cking joke!!

And GZ committed no crime by reporting TM as suspicious. He also did not commit a crime by following him (for whatever reason).

The way you frame it, TM was just blindsided by this racist overly-zealous neighborhood cop for no apparent reason other than the fact TM was black. I mean, if you really believe that, it just shows you're unable to overcome your pre-conceived biases.

Followed does not equal being stalked. And none of those quotes resemble racism in the slightest either as he is talking about recent incidents.

He didn't go and attack Zim when Zim sat there staring at TM. He ran.

Sure he did. Had Martin lived he would be in jail or prison for aggravated assault and aggravated battery with the intent to do great bodily harm or kill, or possibly murder or attempted murder had he beaten George to death or into a coma or shot him with George's gun he was reaching for. You can't launch an unprovoked attack on somebody because "some creepy ass cracker is following me."

Just cuz there isn't evidence, doesn't mean he is innocent and I want him as my neighborhood watch captain. Plz don't remind me of how the law works, I understand it, but our laws, justice system and society is flawed if we let child killers walk cuz their isn't sufficient "evidence" when everyone knows GZ is a f*ckboy

so the right thing to do was the let this "innocent kid" beat him to death?

"innocent kid" who had been suspended 3 times, caught with a backpack of stolen jewlery, and who beat up a neighborhood watchman. Not to mention all the stuff on his phone...

I like how you potray TM in a bad light but totally ignore Zim's history of violence (beating his fiance, overly aggressive according to former co-workers, Daniel Osmun, the ATF officer) and anger management issues. You don't think it is entirely plausible GZ went and confronted TM, embolded by the fact that he was armed with a loaded gun? And why the **** did G not identify himself to TM to diffuse the situation? I don't believe for a second that TM ambushed him from some bushes, there are no bushes where the fight supposedly started

The only possible story of how things went down is what George Zimmerman says.

Since the other person is dead, we HAVE to believe EVERY word George Zimmerman says, and believe it as truth, unless there is PROOF that it didn't happen that way.

Why would George Zimmerman lie?

I cant wait for him to be freed and go back to being the leader of the neighborhood watch, his community has probably lived in fear ever since GZ hasn't been there. His community deserves him back to keep them safe.

I believe every word George Zimmerman says.

Its not even possible that it happened any other way, cuz there is no proof, and his attacker, Trayvon Martin, is dead.

Mr Zimmermans community DESERVES for him to be freed so he can continue ridding the community of blacks with skittles trying to get home.

If you ever have children(which im positive you don't), God bless them.

Because their father would be completely okay with some random, strange dude following them, and you not defending yourself.

He'd walk free on the grounds of self defense.

I may not have explained it well, but it's not a passive personality. It's a person who's personality changes depending on the status of the other person he's dealing with. You've been in the military, right? Have you heard the phrase KISS UP KICK DOWN? That's the type I'm describing. Some people get treated with ultra respect and some get shit on. With someone below his status he can let out all his aggressive and antisocial instincts.

As regards to Zimmerman if he was passive he would have stayed in his car and this kid would have lived.

You're missing the point. I was responding to specific scenario someone had laid out. It had nothing to do with GZ. It had only to do with TM's actions. So I didn't comment on GZ at all. I only brought up a plausible scenario in which TM contributed to the provocation.

Nothing more, nothing less.
