    Eh. A kid got killed. Not sure why you are making light or jokes about the event. Would you wear that shirt and show it to Martin's mother. What if you had a kid that was killed and someone made a shirt mocking it

    Extremely poor taste, to put it lightly, if you ask me

    It's a joke making fun of Zimmerman. Too soon??

    I haven't followed this close as some but something worth mentioning. At the time Trayvon Martin was killed my son was the same age as were his two best friends Joe and Travis.
    If any one of them was to jump on most any of us full grown men you would need a weapon to stop them. How many people here see seventeen year old boys very often ?
    Some of them are quite imposing.
    I am not saying that is what happened. Only two people know, one is dead , the other has good reason to lie.

    All I know is an unarmed 17 year old was killed by someone with a gun who was told specifically not to follow him. I have a hard time rationalizing that and innocent. He is guilty of something. The evidence just tells us what specifically...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    That Zimmerman was on the ground with Trayvon on top per the bullet trajectory. And backed by the State's witness John Goode. And that Trayvon had Zimmerman in a MMA ground and pound position. Which by the way is a VERY DANGEROUS position to be in even for a professional. Especially with no referee to stop it. Getting FUBAR in that situation is VERY LIKELY. I just don't see how you convict Zimmerman in that position.

    I say they should of not even done the trial. Just take him out yonder back of the courthouse and string him up right yer up on the old tree. Yeehaw. It's not like whatever evidence is shown in that there court of law is gonna change anybody's mind. Mans guilty. Don't know of what but sumthin. Don't see the point of that ther trial is anyway.

    I think the media is more guilty for manufacturing another race case.
    Question for you Locke. Or anyone else.
    Was O.J. Guilty ?

    Others are bringing up situations wondering if that would be brought to court, so let me add one:

    If i stalked a women as she was walking home in both my car and on foot, and she pepper sprayed me after i refused to answer why i was following her, knocking me on my back while she continued to spray me, should i be allowed to shoot her to death?

    This case is perfect for public debate. Theres enough of a gray area for people to form their own judgements, feel strongly about them, and not be wrong. If you feel the important part of this case is Zimmerman being pounded on while he was basically defenseless: then hes innocent. If you feel the important part of this case is Zimmerman tracking down Martin: then hes guilty of manslaughter. I could go either way, though i definitely lean towards the latter. I dont believe something is self defense if you instigate the situation. If it is, then anyone could start any situation in order to kill someone they dislike for whatever reason. I believe the law needs to be better defined to prevent these sort of cases in the future. If that means Zimmerman walks and then the law is "changed", i'll be disgusted but eventually understand.

    As well, just to clarify because this has been brought up ad nausuem: a case could be made that Zimmerman was racist and it was a motivating factor in his pursuit of Martin. But i dont believe that. I believe he was a wanna be cop with a power complex. I believe he had a domestic assault charge previously and i know he had attempted to join law enforcement agencies. That screams to me he was someone who desperately wanted some sort of "power" over others. He drew himself up as some sort of trained profiler and went looking for trouble. Then he found it and...well...yeah.

    Also, 9954, if you make that Creepy Ass Cracka into a bumper sticker: sold.

    Simple. Zimmerman followed Martin. Done. He shouldn't have done that, and it got a kid killed. You and everyone else justifying this death blows my mind. It's not about Martin anymore apparently. I have no clue why anyone can justify this guy with a gun following an unarmed teen going to his friend's house. There is no justification for it. He followed a kid when he was told not to and the kid of dead. That's on Zimmerman...
