What exactly am I defending myself from? I would probably try to avoid the guy since he might be armed, not punch the guy in the face.

Martin's girlfriend said that he was always fighting, and there was at least one incident in which he was upset that the kid who he had been fighting didn't bleed enough.

Yeah, sounds like a harmless kid. Good riddance.

Taking their cue from the Martin family's attorneys, Reuters ran the first national article on the shooting ten days after it happened. Zimmerman was a "loose cannon." He profiled Martin, stalked him, and shot him, disregarding police instructions. Martin, by contrast, was a "good kid." He had hoped to be a pilot. He was simply bringing the soon-to-be iconic iced tea and Skittles home to his "little brother."

This story was pure fable from the beginning, and the attorneys knew it. Even before going public, they moved to seal Martin's school records, and with good reason. Consider this exchange between Martin and a female friend on November 21, three months before his death. After he told her he was "tired and sore" from a fight, she asked him why he fought. "Bae" is shorthand for "babe."

MARTIN: Cause man dat ***** snitched on me

FRIEND: Bae y you always fightinqq man, you got suspended?

MARTIN: Naw we thumped afta skool in a duckd off spot

FRIEND: Ohh, Well Damee

MARTIN: I lost da 1st round but won da 2nd nd 3rd . . . .

FRIEND: Ohhh So It Wass 3 Rounds? Damn well at least yu wonn lol but yuu needa stop fighting bae Forreal

MARTIN: Nay im not done with fool..... he gone hav 2 see me again

FRIEND: Nooo... Stop, yuu waint gonn bee satisified till yuh suspended again, huh?

MARTIN: Naw but he aint breed nuff 4 me, only his nose

... A day later, he would tell a friend that his opponent "got mo hits cause in da 1st round he had me on da ground nd I couldn't do ntn." As his girlfriend complained, Martin was "always" fighting. He was also something of a sadist. His opponent, after all, did not bleed enough...
I'm usually Mr. Liberal, but it's pretty clear that Martin was a violent individual, who most likely punched GZ in the face and started the whole fracas. This case shouldn't have even gone to trial -- the prosecution has been terrible thus far.

Thug life, yo!!!

Well if you are ever walking home from the store at 7 PM, minding your own business and some grown weirdo with a history of violence and child molestation playing cops and robbers chases you through the neighborhood and shoots you in the heart, we'll know who to blame.

You no good thug you

Dumb post. Martin did not go out looking for a fight. He was high, and went to the store for snacks, while Zimmerman was out trying to be Robocop on a kid wit black skin color because he assumed Martin was up to no good.

Yawl can argue every little thing in this thread, but wat I posted above is the cold hard truth. Racism in America will never end.

They both have a history of violence, but I'm also taking into account John Good's testimony, which suggests that Martin attacked GZ.

I'm sure Martin didn't go out looking for a fight, but he was likely the one who initiated it. What GZ did was wrong in terms of trailing Martin, but you don't respond by punching him in the face.

We don't know exactly what happened, unfortunately Trayvon was shot and killed by Zimmerman so we cant get his side of the story. People seem to believe GZ like he is a saint and wouldn't lie to save himself from life in prison. GZ is a prove liar, I don't believe a word he says.

I believe that Zimmerman tried to detain TM, and obviously he wasn't having it, a scuffle ensued, TM got the upper hand, so GZ shot him.

Its really disturbing to me that ANYONE would defend someone who stalked and killed an innocent kid walking home. I don't get it, someone explain it to me, without using GZs side of the story as your evidence

Trayvon did run you idiot. Zimmerman was more familiar with this neighborhood & tracked him down when he was told not to follow him.

And Zimmerman was arrested for domestic violence & resisting arrest. What the F does that have to do with a creepy guy chasing a teen in the dark?

I hope you teach your teen sisters, daughters , brothers to submit to some creepy guy chasing them.

Just a tad bit biased, aren't you?

If you want to believe that GZ tried to detain TM, fine. That's your opinion. But I'm just going by what I've watched from the trial and by information that I looked up on the internet. GZ was consistent in all his accounts. When the cops lied and told him that there was video of the entire incident, he was incredibly relieved. Witness John Good suggested that Martin was most likely on top of Zimmerman. The prosecution has looked like crap, but then again, they had little to work with. This case should never have gone to trial, but it did just for political reasons.

This is the main problem......If prosecution could prove GZ put hands on TM first....then they could get a conviction.

and If GZ did put hands on TM first ...GZ should rot in Jail.

- problem is.....they cant.....and the only evidence we have is that TM is whoopin the dog sh!t outta GZ.

Jantel testified that she heard Trayvon saying "get off get off".

He suggested that Trayvon was kicking the butt of some fat loser who stalked & tracked him down in a neighborhood he was unfamiliar with. That fat loser knows the neighborhood so I am certain he didn't have to get out & see the street sign. Zimmerman knew those streets from his years off wanna- be- cop patrols.

Good doesn't know who attacked whom. Good only thinks he knows who was getting the better in a scuffle .
