Have you stopped to think that Trayvon might have been defending himself. Here it is dark outside and he is being followed by a strange man who by Zimmerman's own 911 recording was upset because he felt and I quote " they always get away". It is unbelievable how you continue to defend Zimmerman as he has taken this young mans life for me reason

Oh yes... Sure I do not think Trayvon was doing anything wrong.
I am sure he was defending himself. Some big strange man following him and then getting in his face. I am sure Trayvon was defending himself.
I think it was Zimmerman screaming for help. The FBI investigation and hi-tech work on the 911 tapes will tell us the truth.

I know this is hard to accept and it does not seem right...
But I think Trayvon was kicking ass for a few seconds AND that Zimmerman was in fear for his life or great physical harm ...
AND that that is all he needs for his defense.
I know it does not seem right.. but that is the law.

The same sort of law could protect you or me.
Say you are at home and ... the police mess up and get the wrong address and break into your home in the middle of the night. They enter you bedroom in the night and you grab a gun and shoot. You kill a police officer. If you were in fear for your life the law would protect you.
Of course in the real world we know the police would say that they yelled out police and would say you could see their uniforms and badge etc. But still the law should protect you.

The law would have protected Trayvon if things had gone the other direction. But they did not.
If in the fight with Zimmerman if Trayvon had killed Zimmerman. He could use the defense of the Stand Your Ground law. He was being followed and did not know who the guy was and he ran and the guy followed him. Trayvon was not committing a crime and he had a legal right to be there. Trayvon would have said he was in fear of his life and it would have rung much more believable a big man 240 pound and Trayvon 140 pounds.

Yes I know.. I am sure the police would have arrested Trayvon and sorted it all out at the police station. Because of racism.

I know everyone wants a different out come but I think Zimmerman will get off of the charge.
But as I have said a number of times... His life is over... He will be sued and he will never have anything after this.
