This case is close to me because I have cousins that look like Trayvon and a young son who is growing up in racist America. Mind you, racism is intitutionalized...me being racist isn't going to stop anyone from getting a job, and education, or a loan. Me being racist isn't going to create a slave like prison industry. me being racist isn't going to change the fact that many of my peoples got harder sentences for crack than whites did for the same amount of cocaine.

I love everyone but I'm not going to pull punches for you guys...if you can't see where I'm coming from I do not apologize.

I'm not judging anything. I'm simply stating that one was more recent and 75% of the population was lost along with a vast majority of land. But that is entirely a different topic.

And no, this case was made racist by the media. To have the mindset you have is not going to do anything but continue on the racism which may exist. Just like I realized, me having hatred towards the people of Turkey, unless they give me a reason to or flat out deny history, is not going to contribute towards progress but continue on the hate between the two nations that need to find a middle ground.

Edit: I'm sticking to this topic now, not going to go off topic anymore.

The ATF, his ex fiance, Daniel Osmun, Tim Hudik, the cousin he molested, and a few party goers where he bounced would vehemently disagree with your assessment.

You are judging. I could go into this back and forth but it is useless. You cannot feel my struggle and i can't feel yours which is why i will say I am sorry for your loss/hardship man.

What mindset do I have? First off man don't assume you know me. How many kids have you gotten into college? how many kids have you tutored and mentored? How many soccer/sports camps have you run? How many PCs have you given to needy kids?

I have done ALL of those things for kids that happen to be mostly white. I can compartmentalize my issues with race and still love individuals. I spend a goodly amount of time promoting peace.

I will not deny that I have an emotional stake in this issue, but even still, I have never asked for GZs blood, I have never said I KNOW he should be charged for murder and get the death penalty...I have said from my gut that I think he deserves jail time. If you ask me I tyhink he liked to target young brown kids. Does that mean his life should be over? Idk either...I don't like making those calls and I do not envy those that have that task.

But one thing I want to leave you with is that you haven't been in my shoes. As an AF veteran that risked his ass for this country i still get followed by cops and pulled over for nothing. Shit, my little brother was killed by a cop and I still stick up for THE GOOD COPS.

I'm a lot more layered than you ugive me credit for.

again....no blood spaltter means little...especially considering where the bullet entered/clothing

angularity is still up for grabs.....as the DT will bring their own Forensics expert saying the bullet travelled consistent with being fired from bottom



Zimmerman took 1 1/2 years of instruction at Kokopelli's gym in Orlando, a gym that boasts being 'the most complete fight training in the world'. Plus he took several citizen police academy classes, so he knew a thing or two about ground fighting/defense. In fact, he had an interesting exchange with Detective Serino when the question of how he was able to fire came up:
Serino: Compact? And you were able to overpower him as far as holding his wrist, you gained wrist…we call it wrist control…you gained wrist control on him basically, and you were able to basically liberate both hands…

Zimmerman: Yes, sir.

https://www.txantimedia.com/?p=1025
Now most people would respond by saying 'wrist control, dafuq is that? ' but good ole Zimmy knew exactly what Det. Serino was talking about when he said 'we call it wrist control'.

And since MMA is the term du jour...

MMA made easy: Wrist Control Assisting in Transitions

Having a 50 lb weight and probable strength advantage, as well as 1 1/2 MMA and police tactic training really paid off for Zim.

Wrist control doesn't mean transitioning from bottom to top position.....wrist control simply means grabbing the wrist...and most techniques use a 2 on 1 wrist control ( 2 hands grabbing 1 wrist) so you can control the wrist ( but also leaves one arm open).....grabbing 1 on 1 wrist control isn't as effective....

still does not mean he escaped from the bottom



also 1 and half years at a gym?.....ok.....so now he can fight?

- .....most times it's 2 - 3 times a week for 90 minutes.....could GZ learn some good technique?....yes.....will it work when someone is on top of him punching him in the face?......

- You could take some random joe from the street and train him for 3 years...doesn't mean he would win a fight vs anyone......especially if he's not used to really getting hit in the face.......many times people get hit in the face and shutdown mentally
.






So the person on top at that moment, Zim was in a lower position. Mystery solved.

or he was on the bottom getting hit...just as the witness said

He said several times he didn't see or hear a single punch be thrown and even conceded that it was possible that the person on top was just trying to hold down the other. Didn't see or hear any head bashing on concrete either for the record.

he said downward "arm movements".....with TM on top.....he also said he believed GZ was screaming for help...but wasn't 100% sure

look at GZ injurys......busted nose and busted head.....much more evidence shows that GZ is the correct...as with the witness




See the above


40lbs advantage....means little with someone punching you in the face....and looking at both men....it certainly wasn't effective weight

Thanks DonDadda, I had guessed a couple of the scenario's but you got it down for me. When Zim is telling the story you can tell he has had training as he has proper balance and does things with correct form. He talks of remounting a dead person and inverting both wrist (in classic Akido style), as if the limbs aren't the first to go limp, and then getting up to tell the guy help me apprehend this corpse and make sure it doesn't get away. No remorse, is usually a sign of intent... thought out intent.

Zimmerman- 204 lbs
Trayvon- 158 lbs

That's 46 lbs difference. That's like saying a UFC heavyweight and lightweight are going to engage in an MMA match, mostly on the ground. Regardless of skill level, who would you put money on to win? Then take skill level into account- we know now that despite the defense trying to paint the skinny 17 year old as an MMA expert, it was in fact George Zimmerman who trained at the self-proclaimed 'most complete fight gym in the World' for 1 1/2 years.

I'm out for now

Training and 40 lbs of man weight is a crazy advantage on a recently turned 17 year old in a wrestling situation. If someone is punching you in the face I would think harder to get his weight off of you to get the gun than anything else.

The 5'11 football player, personally. Not the short, fat insurance underwriter.

The one who had a history of fighting at school and who did this with his bare hands:

Lmao! Are you serious? 46 pounds of weight is HUGE when factoring in being able to put power behind your punch and take the punch of a lighter man. Why do you think there are weight classes in boxing? Because despite skill a poor heavyweight can defeat a masterful lightweight with one good punch.

Zimmerman's demeanor, comments and lack of serious injuries after the altercation don't help his side. Zimmerman, himself, did not seem to have any concerns about his health after the altercation and supposedly, the guy was in immediate fear for his life not so long ago? I get the sense that Zimmerman overreacted to the situation and used lethal force when he did not have to. I think those photos with Zimmerman's swollen nose and the blood on the back of his head they keep showing the jury could sway them, though. The defense attorney was trying to act like every tiny little bump and abrasion on Zim's face/head was a sign of a life or death struggle. I certainly understand why he tried to overstate the injuries, but I just wonder what the jury thinks.

What if everyone who was losing a fight pulled out a gun and shot the other person?

Even so, for all we know Zimmerman could of attaked Trayvon first there negating his injuries. Or Trayvon could attacked Zimmerman out of fear negating any injuries. It's just fustrating when you only have a half of the story.

And no his injuries were not remotely life threatning.
