You left out the most important part of your statement: for looking like a hoodlum
I didn't mention it because you didn't mention it. That fact is absolutely true as well. Do you think Martin would be dead if he had been wearing a suit while walking down the street? If you can't acknowledge that, then that is just delusional.
If you would like to retract what you said, that's one thing, but you cannot deny what you said.
Again, it is an absolutely true statement, you just misunderstood it, as you have with just about everything else.
Yes, I've seen the bleeding cuts on the back of Zimmerman's head and his broken, swollen, and bloody nose. The pictures only strengthen Zimmerman's case, not Martin's.
They really do not strengthen his case, and they do not support his claims. Either you haven't seen them, or your memory is bad.
Then, it stands to reason Zimmerman would have sustained no injuries and Martin would have sustained no injuries to his knuckles because Zimmerman would have followed through on his threat and killed Martin before a physical altercation would be allowed to occur. Not to mention, again, it doesn't make sense that Zimmerman would threaten Martin with a gun -- that is unless his life were in danger -- knowing that he just called police and that they were on the way. Again, no theory on the part of Martin supporters can reasonably support Zimmerman acting unlawfully. I'll grant you that anything is possible, but given the evidence of the case, anything contradicting Zimmerman's claims seems very unlikely and, ultimately, unknowable.
You can't suppose to know exactly how their encounter went, and you are assuming many things in doing so. It does not "stand to reason" at all, especially if their encounter started with them in close contact with each other, Zimmerman would not have the advantage of range which you seem to be thinking. My point is exactly that it is unknowable. It is unknowable because Zimmerman shot Martin dead. A use of force that was completely unnessecary and which Zimmerman justified by making false claims that his head was being smashed into the ground. Which makes no sense at all. Why would Martin completely ignore a gun being pointed at him to smash the guys head into the ground? Why would Martin, a kid with no history of aggravated violence, do something like this in the first place? Makes no sense at all, unless you want to conveniently ignore those little details.
Again, we have eye witness testimony and evidence at the scene that supports Zimmerman's claims, which is the reason why he wasn't charged with a crime immediately. It took media and political pressure to charge him, and the trial proved the State's case was basically frivolous.
Again, no he does not. He has an eye witness testimony that confirms ONLY that Martin was on top of Zimmerman before he was shot. That. Is. It. Their is scarcely any evidence to support Zimmerman other than his own testimony. Dee Dee's testimony was largely ignored because she was being uncooperative, and her story conflicted with what Zimmerman claimed.
Zimmerman is not convicted because he is obviously an idiot who took things too far. It is obvious he did not intend to kill Martin, initially. Though he is absolutely responsible for starting the entire situation in the first place. He saw someone walking down the street in baggy clothes and a hoody, so he stalked them, he then proceeded to follow on foot against the advice of 9-1-1. During an encounter with Martin, he could have walked away, but he chose to instigate a fight. He then began to "fear for his life", so he shot and killed him.
Apparently, this is okay in Florida. Wouldn't fly in most other states.
You seem to conveniently want to ignore all the facts that support Zimmerman, in favor of an ever-changing theory that's supported by no facts. Unfortunately, that's typical of most Martin supporters.
My theory has been the exact same from the start, if you see it as changing, blame yourself. You seem to want to believe Zimmerman's own testimony is fact. This is not the case, learn the difference. This is typical of most Zimmerman supporters.
