Zimmerman's post-trial escapades make me a feel a great deal more sympathetic to Trayvon Martin and his supporters.

Yeah, me too.

Like many on the board, I felt that Z was morally wrong but technically not guilty of any charged crimes.

Now, I don't think it's outrageous to think that Z might have had the mindset of "I'm going to blow away a suspicious SOB if I can ".

Note, I'm still not remotely convinced it was outright racism. Z had worked with black kids and had his past extensively looked into by the DOJ. If there was any overt racism, I think they would have found at least some evidence.

But Z had that history of the fighting arrest and had a "police wannabe" mindset. I can see him ( in his own mind ), being a "Death Wish" Charles Bronson type of "Hero".

And remember, in Death Wish, Bronson A/K/A Paul Kersey, was not racist at all but an avenging vigilante.

Perhaps Trayvon was in the wrong place at the wrong time ( though admittedly we don't know if Trayvon was even doing anything wrong at all ). And Z would have blown anyone away as the events transpired.

I am convinced that Z is a POS and not a hero in any way, but I also believe that Z was properly aquitted and that the past is the past.

Maybe OJ can hire Zimmerman to track down and eliminate Nicole's real killer, Bronson-style.
Win - win.

Well the double barrel quote seems to originate with TMZ and doesn't seem to be true. What the cop said at the press conference is that she said Z pointed a "long barreled" shotgun at her. During the 911 call she identified it as the infamous Keltec shotgun Z got a few months after the trial.



Long barreled?

Long barreled?

That Keltec is a purty weapon. Very manly.

I would like to see Z and Omar Little go at it mano a mano, each with the Keltec.

It takes two mistakes make an accident.

Maybe it takes two violent yobbos to make a fight to the death.

I wonder if good ol' Joe Biden had that particular shotgun in mind?

HB, that link has to be a joke.

4) A mental health examination, as performed by a medical professional approved by the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) must be passed in order to receive a firearms license.

So apparently this 28th Amendment will also nullify HIPAA.

In states which were at any point in time a part of the Confederate States of America, this tax shall be equal to 10% of an individual’s income. Taxes levied under this amendment shall be appropriated in equal portions to programs to expand Affirmative Action programs and begin to pay reparations to the descendants of African slaves.

And also it codifies geographic discrimination, a pole tax, and racial preferences.

It's pretty much a goldmine.

His supporters would have reacted the same way if a Boyscout had shot Trayvon Martin, unless the Boyscout was black, of course. His post-trial behavior doesn't change the evidence presented in the case, and the only thing that would make me sympathetic toward Trayvon's supporters would be new evidence that shows Zimmerman did not act in self defense.

I still find it sad that either side would have "supporters."

As I've said in the past, I believe that zimmerman was the aggressor and that he did, in fact murder Trayvon. I'm okay with the verdict because I don't believe the prosecution made it's case in court.

I find it inderesting, however, that so many people on this forum are willing to take Trayvon's character into account when passing judgment on the events of that evening, but not Zimmerman's. It's always qualified with a "but". Zimmerman may be a scumbag, BUT...
