    Hey Lead, I don’t believe you were there & your testimony contradicts what was presented in court. My sons would not be out at night walking around the neighborhood & they would never hassle neighborhood watch. If they were out at night & they were approached by neighborhood watch, they would tell them where they lived, but then neighborhood watch knows my sons & already knows all this. My sons don’t smoke marijuana & they don’t burglarize houses & they don’t beat up others & they don’t act like thugs. They are clean cut American boys & I hope they defend themselves in whatever way is best if they are ever confronted by any criminal.

    Not a liar, although I can believe that. Not sophisticated means she doesn’t speak clear concise English & has a low IQ, uneducated & base. Why would any attorney put someone like her on the stand? Does he expect the jury to feel sorry for her perjury & convict on that basis? She lost a boyfriend she doesn’t really feel anything for & we are supposed to grieve for her? Or was he her supplier? There is something here that doesn’t fit & she is afraid they will find out something about her relationship with Martin that would jeopardize their case. If she was dealing for him or fencing for him, it would explain why she didn’t want other people to think they were close or associated. Where did Martin get his marijuana? Why was he in contact with her on a regular basis if they were not friends enough for her to attend his funeral? I don’t believe her testimony or his mom’s or his dad’s & I wonder why the prosecution has gone to this extent to jeopardize their standing for this case. Would you re-elect this prosecutor or judge for your hometown knowing they have no respect for their own laws? You don’t get to re-write legislation from the bench or the witness stand. Telephone conversations & family voice identification are not good enough to be evidence of a crime. An unsophisticated associate who wasn’t there is not a witness. She is a detriment & perjury is still a crime in this country, but I guess they will allow it from the WH.

    1. Martin was not a resident of the neighborhood & it is not unlawful for neighborhood watch personnel to ask strangers where they live or what their business is in their neighborhoods. It is not unlawful to ask a person what they are up to. Anyone can refuse to respond or can respond with profanity or what have you, but 2. It is unlawful for anyone to assault anybody else. You can’t jump someone no matter what they are saying & start pounding on them. 3. The only person who broke the law & started the altercation was Martin. Zimmerman did not break any laws & chose to exercise his right to defend himself when he felt his life was threatened. As would we all if the truth be told here. If you want to sacrifice yourself up to some thug pounding on you until he cracks your skull or caves your head in, that is your right & your choice, but you should have the right to defend yourself if you are able & have the means.

    Not so dense she couldn’t perjure herself for the prosecution & try to sound convincing doing it. A mind is a terrible thing to waste & she proved it. I think she should go to Africa & try her luck there.

    Actually, I think it is a tragedy. He was so young. But that doesn’t excuse his choices or actions.

    A coward would have shot the kid in the back from the car. You don’t know the meaning of the word. So Martin is so brave for attacking a shorter man. So tough for fighting anything that moves if it rubs him the wrong way. You might want to count how long Zimmerman waited before he shot Martin in the front, in the chest while the kid was on top of him pounding his head into the ground. Zimmerman was foolish in my opinion but trying to be conscientious about his neighborhood watch & I think it would be very telling if they investigated the burglaries in that neighborhood because I would bet good money that Martin was involved. But nobody wants to discuss the true nature of the kid, they just want to crucify who’s left. Hypocrites all. If the situation was reversed & it was a black neighborhood watch guy who shot a Mexican thug, we wouldn’t be having this discussion. Racist hypocrites.

    Not a very sophisticated person… is an understatement. How about not credible?
    So it’s okay for a black man to attack anyone else & if you make the mistake of defending yourself in a state that allows you to stand your ground you are going to prison anyway. And we’re going to convict because that will keep the black criminals from rioting. I think we should not convict according to the law & wait & see if the black communities riot & then deal with the rioters in an appropriate manner according to the law. Seems to me Zimmerman’s rights have been violated here & this is nothing but a circus for the morons who can’t read or understand the basic laws in this country which is why we need to send them back to their African mud huts where life will be so much simpler & easier to understand for them. Freedom does not mean you can threaten anybody at any time. Free speech does not mean you can threaten or incite. Freedom of religion does not mean you can force or impose your beliefs on someone else. Even the prosecution & judge in this case have failed to do their jobs which is to uphold the law as officers of the court. You don’t make legislation or prosecute to keep racists from rioting, that’s persecution of the innocent. Racists will riot whenever the mood strikes them & it is not a rational choice. I guess it really is the beginning of the end.

    So how much does it cost to change an official opinion these days? Or does he have something to hide that can be extorted for false testimony? Would you now trust this guy to handle your case? Because I wouldn’t. I wish Martin had not jumped Zimmerman & then maybe he would still be alive today, maybe not. Because if he was burglarizing homes, he might have been shot & killed in the process of a crime. Maybe he would have been shot & killed while in the process of another crime. Just maybe he would have turned his life around. But he chose to jump a guy & pound on him enough to make the guy afraid for his life & then he got shot. What a useless tragedy. Way to go Mom & Dad. Maybe you should have been there for your son & maybe you should have been at home with him making sure he was safe instead of pursuing other things that were more important to you. What possibly could have been more important than your teenage son? Nothing. You never give up on your kids. If you need to stay home to make sure they stay out of trouble then do so. If they need a trip to jail to see some consequences then so be it. Just do what it takes. Because if you don’t then maybe they end up dead when they do the wrong things. Like attack a guy with a gun. Senseless.

    And that is how perjury slips by the jury… Tell a lie & tell a little truth & it will sound plausible. What I am having trouble with is that none of these witnesses for Martin were there in person & they are admitting hearsay as evidence. When people scream under duress they sound similar, that’s how they do sound-overs in the movie business – One person opens their mouth on film & somebody else does the more impressive scream. I use to jump every time I heard a child scream because they all sound the same & the girls sound the same sometimes as the boys & I had to make sure it wasn’t my child who was making noise. I have no doubt Martin’s mom wishes the incident never happened & that’s about the only true thing she’s said. She’s looking for compensation here because she thinks she is entitled & that’s the real problem with our welfare system. This woman doesn’t deserve anything for raising a criminal & her son doesn’t deserve anything for choosing crime. The father doesn’t deserve anything for raising a criminal & the brother doesn’t deserve anything for covering the crime. They are all guilty now of criminal activity, including the girlfriend which doesn’t say much for their creed. It’s all really rather pathetic when you reduce it down to the basics. If they cared so much for Martin, why didn’t they do right by him? You don’t let your child become a criminal without a fight to show him & teach him there is a better way. That is a parents job. For shame.

    Why not both? I can imagine a being altering the genetics of life on this planet so it will evolve into something else. The fossil records already prove evolution exists on this planet, but it doesn’t explain the missing gaps. Something accelerated the process, especially with modern man & modern livestock. We’re already messing with genetics ourselves, is it so hard to imagine that someone made some changes to transform man into their progeny? I don’t understand why the fight to have it one way or another when both theories are plausible. Will we ever know all the facts concerned? Hard to say. Maybe the evidence is here on the planet & we’re missing it or it still needs to be found. Evolution all by itself takes millions of years to make changes, but maybe it’s a prompted process as well. Seems to me there are so many factors to consider – Radiation from the Sun which is a constantly changing burning ball of layered gases, effects from other celestial bodies, etc. I have absolutely no doubt however that we are moving in a definite direction towards something, which would tend to suggest there is a planned purpose even if it is just survival or continuation of a parent species. We are more than just animals & it would be very nice for a change if we started acting like we were more.

    I’m white & I’ll talk about race relations. I don’t understand these black people. If they are so unhappy here, why don’t they leave? I have a great deal of respect for blacks who speak clear English & have jobs because they seem to get the American dream, but I don’t get these clowns who post racist & hateful epithets on social media sites. They seem like criminals to me. Don’t they still prosecute criminals in this country? They obviously hate the color of my skin but I don’t know why since I didn’t put it there in the first place & I never stopped to think about whether I hate theirs or not. Black is just another color to me. I judge people on the basis of their character. I guess I don’t like stupid people. They really bum me out.

    Would they do it for Obama? It would be a boon for us all. Let his people go. Back to the beginning. Back where they belong.

  • June 28, 2013 at 1:55pm

    Are you talking an all racist neighborhood? I’m confused.

  • June 28, 2013 at 1:52pm

    I’m not sure about that. The bad seem to shout louder than the good. But then the good don’t have to shout about anything. Makes you wonder.

  • June 28, 2013 at 1:50pm

    Maybe we should find something else for these people to focus on. How about some iron bars in their face. Something up close & personal. How much could it possibly cost to pack these people on a one-way boat to Africa. We could approach the cruise lines about a promotional trip.

    Now this situation would actually be a good & justified use of citizen surveillance. Trace them back & prosecute them for violation of civil rights & the pursuit of happiness. Free the Z.

  • June 28, 2013 at 1:44pm

    I’m waiting for the statement from the WH that says these are all his children & his people. What a crock of a melting pot.

  • June 28, 2013 at 1:34pm

    Are they really? I only glanced at them & assumed wrongly. I think they should be traced back & their government subsidies should be revoked. I’m sure there must be a law they can enforce since they are issuing those statements in a public forum & they are in print for God’s sake in front of the world & everyone else. Isn’t it a form of threatening libel or a life threat or a personal threat? I don’t believe anyone in this country can issue a public statement in print that threatens someone’s life or well-being without being in violation of that person’s civil rights. If they pursue, the jails will be full.

  • June 28, 2013 at 1:23pm

    Yeah, but if Z. is found not guilty, don’t you think he will be the one leaving? I don’t believe you can recover a life after an experience like this. Hope he has connections somewhere. I feel for the man. When it becomes a crime to defend yourself against a criminal, the criminals must be in charge.

  • June 28, 2013 at 1:11pm

    I keep thinking the almost 14% threatening any of the majority doesn’t seem like a bright idea. I mean, they are already randomly shooting people now because they are bored & lazy & it would also appear they are illiterate as well, so are we kidding ourselves that these ebony-skinned folks can function on a minimum level in our society? Are we being remiss by not sending the rest back to Africa at this late date so they can go back to their much more familiar mud hut existence? If they start intentionally targeting certain individuals of known Hispanic & Jewish origins, won’t those populations take offense & start targeting the morons? I really don’t think they get it. They are out-numbered, out-gunned & out-matched & they are making threats??? My apologies to the dark-skinned folks who call themselves Americans. I was speaking of those who clearly don’t care about this country or the freedoms they currently enjoy here. I draw a distinction for myself between Americans of African descent & the others of African descent who can’t figure out what they are. Thugs? Thieves? Criminals? Undesirables? Wow, can’t find a good descriptive term that covers these people. I wonder if it wouldn’t be better for all Americans to start actively defending themselves from this element in our midst. It would be great & utopia if it wasn’t here, but the reality can’t be ignored. Don’t be one of the casualties.
