Zimmerman wasn’t a “stand your ground” case.

Yeah, the dude’s a POS. Doesn’t change the fact that there was a physical fight and no way of knowing which one threw the first punch. You can’t convict under those circumstances, no matter how much of a POS the guy is.

Do some people regret their support of him? I'm sure. But the individuals who donated to him certainly aren't the sort who are going to ever admit they were wrong about the case or about him.
Maybe, maybe not. I get why some people supported him. It was a reaction to how the media handled it.

From some people’s perspective, it looked like the media were trying to railroad this guy. You even had NBC doctoring the tape of his call with the police trying to make him look like a racist. The media was very OBVIOUSLY trying to manufacture a “racially motivated murder” narrative.

Is Zimmerman in reality a racist? I don’t know, maybe. But what I do know is that NBC and other media were deliberately trying to inflame racial tensions in the country. A lot of people who “supported” Zimmerman only did it as a backlash to what the media was trying to do.

Zimmerman looks like an older, fatter Kaepernick. But slightly less racist.

I'm aware. It didn't stop stand-your-ground supporters and advocates from rallying around him and treating him like a mascot. That's the point.

I'm aware. I'll just repeat what I said earlier. His recent antics aren't much of a departure from his behavior on the night he stalked, shot and killed Trayvon Martin.

I'm sure much of it was reactionary and that they didn't put a lot of thought into their support. Once you're able to cite the media as biased, people find it easy to take a position in spite of how little they actually know about what or who they are supporting. I've spoken to people who dismissed Zimmerman's past run-ins with police, his ex and his statements about black people simply because the "media" reported it.

You want to get a decent percentage of Conservatives to support something? Tell them the "media" is biased against it. Works every time.

800K and life imprisonment?

But I'd probably get treated like a king in prison.

I love how you talk in such a condescending way about people who ended up being right.

A number of Zimmerman supporters jumped on reports of Trayvon Martin's weed smoking and graffiti writing in the media to paint him as a troubled kid, but balked at coverage of Zimmerman's past legal run-ins, viewing that as unfair media coverage. There were a lot of biased individuals on either side of the case, but many Zimmerman supporters chose their side simply as a result of where they felt the "media" came down.

Again, if you want to get a decent percentage of Conservatives to support something, tell them the "media" is biased against it. Works every time.

This f*cking guy has a rap sheet that just keeps growing and growing. Stalking and various other aggressive acts? Jesus Christ
Thing that pisses me off is we knew he was a racist pos when he killed Trevon after we saw the evidence. Yet you had folks even then saying you're race baiting or didn't believe. Got the nerve to tell you what racism or isn't. News flash, WE ALWAYS know a racist prick when you see one.
