Trayvon did nothing illegal by confronting Zimmerman. And it's possible that he truly feared for his life and acted in self defense if he was really the one who initiated the attack.

Premeditated assault is illegal.

Obviously, we will never know the mindset of Trayvon, which is why I was just wondering about yours.


I still think that Precious had more to do with the confrontation than let off. Wouldn't doubt it if, directly or indirectly, she made comments that hurt Trayvon's ego that made him want to make some confrontation in this situation.

But all that is moot.

He wanted to be a cop and not some asshole who wears a silly uniform and drives around in circles with yellow flashing lights. He didn't want to be the Cherub of Justice; he wanted to be an actual cop.

Technically, yes. THC is a drug, and yes it affects your judgment and has a nasty side-effect of making you really parodied, and the fact that he had it in his blood is relevant to what happened that night.

Yeah, I always got parodied when I smoked weed...

Rachel Jeantel: 'I Believe Trayvon Hit First'

She also says that she believes that Zim tried to grab him first. That's the scenario that many people think happened for quite some time, but when Jeantel says it it's some sort of shocking revelation?

Well, in the vein of your comments since you love to exaggerate, why are you defending a child molesting, police attacking, girlfriend beating, child murdering, pathological liar?

Quote:
tm approached gz's car at point and circled it .. tm wasn't afraid of gz .. he was relishing the moment .. he had a 'creepy ass cracka' ready for a beating .. he's the one who spoke fighting words 'you gotta problem' .. he was looking for a fight

I love how you make things up and take lies as being fact. Soon, Trayvon Martin will be 6'7", high on crack and PCP, and the leader of a violent gang who viciously attacked hero George Zimmerman as he was rescuing a cat from a tree.

Quote:
no one has disputed that gz had bad judgement .. obviously

And used bad judgment when he shot TM in the heart?

Maybe her comment about how the guy following TM might be a rapist got to TM and kicked in some primal fears.
