I don't understand why Zimmerman followed him. I don't understand why Martin running away wasn't exactly what a Neighborhood Watch wants to happen. You scared the supposed bad guy away. Good job! I don't understand why Zimmerman says to the cop on the phone, "These punks always get away." He didn't see Martin do anything, what would he be getting away with?


I try my best to understand by looking at things through Zimmerman's perspective. Imagine being a fat 30 year old Florida man. Perhaps, as a child, you wanted to grow up and become a police officer. As an alter boy, you were molested repeatedly by groups of strange men, possibly black men. Being the loathsome worthless pile that you are, you feel the need to look down on other people in order to make yourself feel not-so-worthless. You're too stupid to be a police officer, so you become a Neighborhood Watchman for the local Homeowner Association.

Now you can treat random people like criminals and pretend to have the law in your hands!

Well, as good as it was, calling 911 and wasting the time of the police on a whim just isn't thrilling enough. You've played enough Grand Theft Auto to know how police are supposed to react to a situation. Why, look at the scrawny black kid over there...

Don't forget to hone your fighting skills on your ex-girlfriends and random police officers.

In the broad sense, it is not a chance encounter because Zimmerman was patrolling the neighborhood, on the lookout for anyone he considered suspicious.


As opposed to it not being a chance encounter when two people run into each other at the mailboxes for the complex? Both are heading to the same area to do the same thing. So if you meet some woman at a bar for the first time, it's not a "chance encounter" because you were both going to the same bar on purpose? That's an incredibly silly and meaningless distinction IMO.

Zimmerman did not know that Martin would be walking down that street at that time. Martin did not know that Zimmerman would be patrolling that street at that time. Therefore, their meeting was a "chance encounter". WTF?

Quote:
In the specific sense, referring to the fight, it is not a chance encounter because Zimmerman had already singled Martin out and, regardless of whether or not he began the fight, had certainly set into motion the events that would lead to one.


So? I'm honestly curious what point you think this proves? Zimmerman didn't walk out his front door that day and say to himself "I'm going to go find a black kid named Trayvon Martin, follow him, get into a fight with him, and then shoot and kill him". I guess I'm not sure why you think this is relevant. You've manipulated the meaning of "chance encounter" so much at this point, that it no longer proves any point you might make with it.

Quote:
And, again, we are saying that we don't care if Martin started the fight.


The law cares though.

Quote:
We don't care if Martin had the upper-hand in said fight when he was shot.


The law cares though.

Quote:
We don't care if Martin went for Zimmerman's gun.


And the law cares. You're demanding that we completely ignore all the factors that actually matter when determining the legitimacy of a self-defense use of a firearm and insisting that we focus on things that don't matter. The fact that Zimmerman followed Martin is neither a violation of the law, nor gives Martin justification under the law to commit violence against Zimmerman.

Do you want justice under the law? Or justice under the mob?

Quote:
Our point is that Zimmerman had presented himself as a significant threat to Martin...


No, he didn't. And no amount of you repeating this over and over makes it true. Not if "significant" means "sufficient threat to legally justify Martin taking violent action against Zimmerman". Anything less than that makes an assault by Martin an act which Zimmerman is legally justified to respond to. Even with lethal force.

Quote:
...regardless of whether or not he realized he was doing it, which voids his ability to claim self defense.


BS.

Quote:
The altercation between them, regardless of who threw the first punch, is directly related to Zimmerman's choice to follow Martin in his car, despite the request from the police that he not do that.


Wrong, wrong, and wrong. The law doesn't work this way. Zimmerman is absolutely within his right to follow Martin. Period. If Martin attacked Zimmerman purely because of that then Martin is in the wrong, and has given up the right to not get shot. Period.

You've managed to move the goalposts so far that they're nearly out of sight. Are you seriously arguing that all one needs to legally justify attacking someone else is thinking the other person is a threat, whether the other person actually is, or is even aware that what he's doing might be perceived as threatening? Do you want that to be the legal standard? Because that would justify a **** of a lot more violent acts if it were. By that same logic, Zimmerman could have shot Martin to death when he first saw him walking down the street.

Seriously. Step back and look at the legal standard you're trying to apply here.

Quote:
Had he listened to that dispatcher, Trayvon Martin would be alive today.


There's a nearly infinite number of things which, had they happened differently, would have resulted in Martin living. We can't hold someone legally responsible for any or all of them. Only those things which were in violation of the law. The first triggering act was *not* Zimmerman following Martin. The first triggering act was when a physical fight started. The "he looked at me funny, so I decked him" defense does *not* work in our legal system.


Again, what's bizarre is how selectively you're applying this. You're arguing that Zimmerman was in the wrong for merely following Martin on the grounds that he thought Martin was up to no good, but turning right around and justifying Martin assaulting Zimmerman for what is more or less the same reason. Even if we assume that both thought the other was doing something they should not have done, Zimmerman's response was legal, while Martins (assuming he initiated the fight) was not. Why defend an illegal act in response to merely thinking something about someone else, while condemning the legal act?


Rule of law should apply to everyone, not just the people we've chosen to side with.

Zimmerman was seeking a person, not an inanimate object. So yes, it's a very different situation.

[EDIT]

No, really, your response is idiotic. If you go to get your mail, you don't have a chance encounter with a mail box.

No. He was on patrol, looking for anything which might look suspicious. Remember the 46 calls he'd made? Only 9 of those were reports of suspicious people. The rest were things like unattended children, open doors, garages, cars, etc. He was traveling down the street, not having any specific idea what he might see (if anything) that evening. The encounter with Martin was by chance. What do you think "chance encounter" means?

Quote:
No, really, your response is idiotic. If you go to get your mail, you don't have a chance encounter with a mail box.


And Zimmerman didn't have a chance encounter with his car, or the various stationary objects along his route. He absolutely had a chance encounter with Martin, in the same way that walking to the mailbox, you might have a chance encounter with another person. Zimmerman didn't set out that evening to run into Martin. He set out that evening to drive around the complex.


Frankly, I'm still not sure what you think this proves though. None of that really matters. As a resident of the complex, he has an absolute right to travel anywhere in the common areas of that complex, for any **** reason he wants. Put another way: Imagine if Martin had not been walking along that night. He wasn't even there. Did Zimmerman have a legal right to drive his car along the street? Yes. Did he have a legal right to park his car where he did? Yes. Did he have a legal right to get out of his car? Yes. Did he have a legal right to walk/run/jog along the exact route he followed on foot that night? Yes.

His right to do those things doesn't evaporate because Martin is in the same vicinity. And Martin absolutely does not gain some right to assault Zimmerman for doing any of those things. Martin also has a right to walk where he walked, and to even attempt to avoid Zimmerman if he wishes. There's nothing illegal about any of that. The illegality occurred the moment one of them physically assaulted the other. That is the point at which a fight began, which resulted in Martin straddling Zimmerman and beating him (according to every eye witness), and ultimately ended with Zimmerman fatally shooting Martin.


Those are the *only* facts that matter. How the two happened to be in proximity to each other is utterly irrelevant. You're focusing on the wrong aspects of this.

Should focus more on the following of the kid, you know doing exactly what the police operator specifically asked him not to do. Pretty strong chance that if he had let the police do their job and come out and confront martin, he would be alive today. Instead Zimmerman shadowed him and eventually got himself into a confrontation. Sounds to me like self defence is out the window, considering the fact Zimmerman had numerous chances to completely avoid a confrontation, yet chose to pursue the matter himself.

Also if I was trying to get away with murder, Id likely happily give myself a bloody nose too, this is complete conjecture and im not saying it went down like that, but its what I would do if it would keep me out of *** rape town.

No, you see, that's not the way Gbaji's world works.

Remember the girl in the bar? Sure it was a chance encounter, even if you went to the bar determined to find a girl to have *** with you. And if you intimidate her into having *** with you, that's just her bad luck.

Funny how often people repeat things that are simply not true. Not only did the police operator not tell him not to follow Trayvon (he said "you don't have to do that"), he also has absolutely zero authority to tell him not to anyway. But by all means, continue to base your position on provably false claims.

Quote:

And? There's a strong chance that had Martin not decided to straddle Zimmerman and beat him mercilessly, he would be alive today.

One of these has a much more direct causal relationship to his death than the other. One of them is an illegal act. One of them justifies self defense. Can you figure out which?

Quote:

Martin had numerous chances to avoid a confrontation as well. The differences is that (assuming Zimmerman's account is correct), Zimmerman's choices weren't illegal and didn't justify self defense on the other person's part. Martin's did. From a legal standpoint, nothing Zimmerman did justified an assault by Martin, but what Martin did justified the shot that Zimmerman fired.

Quote:

Please tell me you're kidding. You do realize that three different eye witnesses all saw Martin on top of Zimmerman hitting him, right? It's like the minds just close in cases like this. Shocking. Really really shocking. You guys are so afraid of being wrong that you'd rather spin ever more absurd and unlikely theories about what might of happened rather than looking at the very most likely explanation: That Zimmerman's account is correct.

But I'm not wrong. I've already in this thread provided sources showing three different witnesses, one described as "a woman", another a 13 year old walking his dog, and the third a man in a nearby house who opened his door, then closed it, called 911 and ran upstairs to look out the window after the shot was fired. The first two did not see the person on the ground, but both described someone with a white top on top of someone else beating him, while the person on the ground was screaming for help. The third directly identifies Zimmerman as the person in a red top on the bottom being beaten, and then later (through the window) as the person standing after the shot was fired.

That is three witnesses, as far as I can tell, the *only* three actual eye-witnesses to any portion of the fight, and every single one of them confirms Zimmerman's story.

What's shocking is that a teenager is dead and the man that killed him has not been arrested and therefore will not stand trial. Until that happens everything I may believe and everything you may believe and everything we read in our liberal or conservative pieces of media is speculation.


What's shocking is that a 6foot+ teen brutally assaults a man, who is only able to defend himself because he has a firearm and shoots the teen, but because so many people heard only one incredibly biased version of events and formed strong opinions about it before the facts came out, they refuse to accept the truth of the matter. Worse, they are so scared that they might have to face the fact that they were manipulated into totally misjudging the situation that they would rather a gross miscarriage of justice occur than the truth come out proving they were wrong. So they scream louder and louder for "justice" in the hopes that so many people saying the same false things will outweigh the truth and they wont have to face reality.


And that's pretty darn sad. Trayvon Martin's life has been ended. That's a bad thing. But now we're going to ignore the law and end someone else's out of spite? Seems like a bad thing to do. This is not about justice. This is about raising so much hype and anger over this issue that justice can't be done. Why do you think the Martin family and/or their lawyer have been doing nothing but making public statements and public appearances this whole time? Is this what you do in the cause of justice? Is justice supposed to be handed out by an angry mob?


I don't think so. And if you're honest with yourself, neither do you.

If the prescription is permanent you can fill out a form which gets you a neat little card which makes them free.

I have formed my preliminary ideas about the case wholly and completely on the only direct evidence I have: the recording of Zimmerman's call to the police.

Zimmerman damns himself thoroughly during the length of the call, without realising it, he is so wrapped up in paranoia about burglars.

Maybe where you are, but I've never heard of that here. Low income families might be able to do soemthing like that though.

Australians pay 10% of the cost of a prescribed medication, capped at $30. If you earn less than $20k per year, your medications are capped at $3.

Including birth control pills, of course.

So the options here are either people think like you, or are liars. Good to know.

You believe what you want to believe gbaji. The facts are simple. An unarmed teenager was shot. The man who fired the gun is free to spread whatever story about the account he wants. The only other person there is dead.

At any other time or place Zimmerman would be arrested for killing a person. If he was innocent by self-defense his trial would find that out.
