He was a busy guy with a wife, kids, a job and he was taking college courses at the time of the incident. We're not computers for God's sake. He forget. He had nothing to gain by lying. The course wasn't called, Stand Your Ground.
A guy who is so desperate to become a police officer and who is an A student doesn't just forget something that was taught in his criminal justice class only three years ago. It's not like he was just some mediocre student who would easily forget what he's studying. He loved criminal justice and craved learning about every aspect about it. Zimmerman outright lied to Sean Hannity. George Zimmerman is not going to admit to anything that might make him look bad.

No, it doesn't, but to the Zimmerman haters, he lied, lied, LIED, I tell you.

But admitting that he knew about the law wouldn't have made him look bad. It's the law. Who cares if he knew or not? If you're going to lie than lie about something important.

I know what you mean. Now I remember why I left the Politics Board. You just can't get through to some people.

This isn't the politics board.

I think any normal kid that was minding his own business would have tried to get away. Zimmerman lost him. He could have ran home and called the police. You only confront somebody when you want to fight them.


I wonder what would have happened if Trayvon had killed Zimmerman? I wonder if that same outrage would have been there?

Yea you're probably right. Zimmerman would have been a villain no matter how this turned out. I do feel sad for Trayvon's parents. Losing a son is awful. I still think the whole thing could have been avoided if Trayvon had just went home.

They are ready to string him up by his shoe laces. The sad thing is that even after the trial certain people will continue to harrass him. He will probably never be safe. If he's find innocent he will probably have to live in fear of his life and live in an undisclosed location.

Maybe so but Zimmerman will still be alive unlike Martin who is dead at 17. Maybe Martin did do bad things, but so did Zimmerman. He was unable to become a Police officer because of his record. If Zimmerman is accquited of this crime I hope he will never be allowed to do anything with law enforcement or crime-watchers program again. He has too quick of a temper and he doesn't seem to trust African Americans especially young people.

If Zimmerman is acquitted, he can go live on a deserted island with America's most hated woman Casey Anthony. Both are child killers. They have so much in common already.

Except one is possibly self defense and the other is murder.

I'm not sure that's a good comparison. There's a difference between killing your own child who's a toddler vs. shooting a 17 year old punk who's beating your creepy-ass-cracker head into the ground.

Zimmerman would have no reason to scream like a girl when he held the power to protect himself and kill Trayvon.

If Trayvon was smothering him with a hand over his mouth and another pinching his nose, how the hell did he manage to scream loud enough for the 911 tape to pick it up. It's yet even more proof that his story is pretty much physically impossible.

If Zimmerman was smart enough, then he should have listened to the 911 dispatcher to not follow Travyon. He was a stupid a**hole who was clearly the aggressor.

And if Travyon was smart enough he should have went home. I guess he wasn't though. He wanted a fight and he got one.
