    The sum total of what we know is that Zimmerman took his gun and went after Martin, against police advice. And why does the attacker have "every right to self preservation" in your world, while the victim does not?
    What he is referring to when he says backtracking is the timeline the defense put forward of the events. The timeline was based not just on Zimmerman's account but also the locations of the physical evidence on the scene and the documented timing of the telephone calls made by Zimmerman, Trayvon and the various neighbors. The timeline tends to support Zimmerman's account.

    Based on all this, it appears that Trayvon turned right at the T intersection of the sidewalks behind the townhouses, this is the direction to his home. Zimmerman went straight passing that turn. It was after this point that the operator told him he didn't need to follow Trayvon. Zimmerman said OK and turned back towards his car. When he came back to the T intersection is when he encountered Trayvon and the fight began. If that is the case, Trayvon would have had to stopped moving towards his house and possibly even backtrack to have confronted Zimmerman.

    What have I said /asked in this thread that warrants this type of response? I am discussing facts, not "feelings" , not presumptions,...facts.
    Just because you don't like the questions (or answers) is no reason to degrade people this way.

    The NRA officially considers her some sort of hero because she made a good show as a woman president. I think she's an insult to gun owners merely by breathing.

    The bizarre thing is that whether or not Martin was defending himself somehow didn't matter.

    Re: Trayvon's Killer Goes Free

    President Obama today:

    "You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot, I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me, 35 years ago,” he said.

    “And when you think about why, in the African-American community at least, there's a lot of pain around what happened here, I think it's important to recognise that the African-American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn't go away.

    “There are very few African-American men in this country who haven't had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store. That includes me.

    “There are probably very few African-American men who haven't had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars. That happens to me - at least before I was a senator.

    “There are very few African-Americans who haven't had the experience of getting on an elevator and a woman clutching her purse nervously and holding her breath until she had a chance to get off.

    “And you know, I don't want to exaggerate this, but those sets of experiences inform how the African-American community interprets what happened one night in Florida. And it's inescapable for people to bring those experiences to bear.”

    Obama noted that the black American community was painfully aware that historically criminal laws have not been applied fairly across the races, but acknowledged that young black Americans were disproportionately both victims and perpetrators of violent crime in America.

    Has there been testimony stating the firearm was visible? During the trial it was acknowledged as being under Zimmermans jacket. It's against the law in Florida to openly carry a weapon.

    So why was Trayvon "reaching" for it then, if he didn't know about it?

    Zimmerman said Martin was trying to get the weapon. That means it was visible.

    Goes back to that Greek tragedy idea, I think both parties here thought they were defending themselves. But Zimmerman for certain and perhaps Martin also made bad decisions that led to the situation.

    According to Zimmerman's account, as he struggled to get out from under Martin his clothing was pulled up and the gun exposed. I'm assuming he had some sort of waistband holster under his coat.

    Re: Trayvon's Killer Goes Free

    The forensic examination of this trial will not matter a whit unless the US addreses its culture of violence, the craven worship of the gun and laws such as SYG which allows the state to abandon its monopoly on law enforcement.
    The issue of extreme social inequality (rarely a subject of national debate) is also pertinent.

    The jurors say that they acted in strict accordance with the law of the land. They probably did. The law of the land in the US was formulated so that settlers could carry guns in self-defence against their enemies – Native Americans. Later, similar rights over the lives and deaths of slaves pertained. All that is so deeply embedded in the US collective psyche that it's easier to forget that it's there than remember it.

    Even though equal civil rights for black Americans are still so new, their achievement still so clear in living memory, the US just can't see what the rest of the world sees – that inequality so entrenched in the history of a state doesn't disappear in matter of decades; on the contrary, the baleful fruits of generations of inequality can be used to justify the very prejudice that promoted the inequality in the first place.

    Logically, poverty and unemployment should be big issues, but inequality should not be an issue. As long as Democrats want more poverty and unemployment, we cannot reduce them. Wealth does not cause poverty, policies do.

    Right there is the phrase which separates free countries from the rest: free countries recognize that there is no state monopoly on law enforcement, that the power to enforce laws derives from the right of citizens to defend themselves against crime.

    Please don't insult everybody's intelligence (your own included) by going to the redneck use of the word "free". To quote The Newsroom, "Two hundred seven sovereign states in the world, like 180 of them have freedom." What you call free, people with common sense call "anarchy". It again and again and again proves to lead to senseless violence, backed by numbers that you repeatedly either utterly fail to address, or make up some ridiculous haughty excuse for not addressing (like the Mother Jones article where you never responded to me).

    Defend your delusions of responsible gun culture all you want, but please don't embarrass yourself by talking about "freedom". There's nothing "free" about a mind in the grip of paranoia.

    FBI Freezes City of Sanford's Plan to Return Zimmerman's Gun

    by ericlewis0Follow
    From the L.A. Times:

    The Sanford Police Department froze its plan to return Zimmerman's gun Thursday after the FBI put a hold on evidence in the case, Sanford police spokesman Capt. James McAuliffe told the Los Angeles Times.

    The FBI's request signals that the Justice Department is proceeding with its civil rights investigation into Zimmerman's killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

    McAuliffe said the gun, a 9-millimeter semiautomatic, won't be returned until the department completes its investigation and had no further need for evidence in the case.
    BEWARE! Harassing the Indian may result in sudden and severe hair loss.

    I saw this yesterday, the story included a reference that a local gun shop is providing him a replacement gun for free since he has received death threats.

    Most of the legal commentators I've heard so far say there is absolutely nothing to hang a Federal civil rights case on so they expect the Feds are just going through the motions.

    Good. Zimmerman has demonstrated that he is not competent to be part of the militia. He should be required to complete thorough training before he is given a firearm again.

    I think it's because citizen's arrests happen so infrequently that it's inconsequential to statistics. I'm sure most people are worried about someone shooting them so they don't attempt many citizen's arrests.

    The right to make a citizen's arrest is extremely limited. A citizen may arrest only for a felony committed in his presence. Law enforcement officers can arrest upon probable cause for crimes, including misdemeanors,

    Unfortunately I think you're right on that 2nd part. But it must be done. Maybe something will come of it. Nobody has said that Trayvon, that I've seen, had the right to defend himself.

    Defend himself from what? Being followed is not a physical threat. Feeling insulted or offended is not justifiable cause for physical contact.

    The comment has been made multiple times in this forum alone, including my own opinions that sad aspect of this tragedy is that both individuals likely felt they were acting in self defense.

    Unless you felt you were about to be attacked and was trying to get the first strike in. We keep ignoring while Zimmerman likely in error profiled Martin as a criminal, Trayvon and his friend on the phone (according to her testimony) did the same thing, profiling Zimmerman as a "creepy white cracker" and likely gay rapist.

    Even if it wasn't validly considered a physical threat THEN...well, it is NOW.

    Re: Trayvon's Killer Goes Free

    Which after all the supposition and hand wringing, we get back to the question at hand,

    Would a jury find Treyvon innocent if he had been armed and was the one who left the scene alive? Would have the police let him be? Considering all that was known, neighborhood watch is dead and a young black man shot him.

    We all know the answer. So arguing what size the rocks are or the color of the sky is rather irrelevant. Isn't it?

    Quite an odd thing, the misinformation. You see people in this thread who are completely misinformed about the actual details of the case. First off, they didn't use stand your ground as a defense. It is irrelevant. Second, GZ was not told to 'not leave his truck', he was already following TM and when told not to follow tried to depart the area. That is when the confrontation occurred. Third, this has nothing to do with Florida per se, trial lawyers and prosecutors across the country indicated they did not have the evidence for Murder two.

    The only other lack of information travesty I would point out is that the internet MEME of GZ going free while the "Mom" gets jail time gives ZERO background or perspective. I would actually get some facts before passing judgement.

    This is a travesty no doubt. I think the worst travesty is that if it was two black and one ended up dead we would pay ZERO attention to it. Just google 'Murder' and 'Chicago' and ask yourself how many of those cases received any attention. If you doubt me, that is. If you don't have time to review hundreds of murders try seventy by googling "Murder" "Kansas City"

    I'm not sure we fully agree on the trial, but thank god someone else acknowledged this aspect of the case: he *already* got out of the car by the time the dispatcher told him to stop following Martin. No evidence after that point that he kept following.

    Also, thank you for recognizing that, for all the outrage over "stand your ground", it was never invoked in this case! A formal "Stand Your Ground" argument would have involved a separate hearing wherein Zimmerman's lawyers would have asked for *immunity* from all charges under the statute. What people actually object to, whether they know it or not, is Florida's concealed carry law, which allowed GZ to be armed with a handgun. That enabled the use of a handgun to be argued for/justified under the statutes regarding self-defense (which are really no different in Florida than in most states--the general principles about use of force date back to British common law). The misinformation and willful ignorance surrounding this trial are breathtaking.

    Re: Trayvon's Killer Goes Free

    Haven't been around nearly as much anymore, but wanted to comment on this. If anyone does not understand why George Zimmerman received a Not Guilty verdict they:

    1) Didn't really watch the trial and relied completely on instinct and emotions ... and/or
    2) Don't understand the responsibility of a juror and how a juror is supposed to judge the merits of a case

    Just too much unknown that it was not enough to convict him. I do think Zimmerman unquestionably racially-profiled Trayvon Martin, but racially profiling someone isn't necessarily illegal on it's own merit.

    I think throwing manslaughter in at the very end was a mistake. But I do think even the manslaughter charge was too difficult to prove because of the self-defense charge. The state couldn't disprove that it was self-defense on Zimmerman's part. Coupled by witnesses that say they saw Trayvon on top in the struggle, the prosecution simply couldn't prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. The jury had no other alternative.

    Just a very unfortunate series of incidents that never would have transpired had George Zimmerman not had a gun. That is the real issue at hand here, in my opinion. A neighborhood watchman needing a gun, evidently.

    I agree for the most part, except the racial profiling comment. I'm not entirely sure Zimmerman sought out Martin because he's black. But one thing I do know is that people who are signing up to watch their neighborhoods are generally shit starters. And, a night where there's no action, no one to question, no phone call to the non-emergency police line is indeed a failure of a night. Zimmerman was probably overzealous in getting a "bad guy" off the streets and that's what started his ass whooping and killing an unarmed teenager.

    Now, the neighborhood vigilante is now in fear for his life from Florida vigilantes.

    Some of the legal and other commentators have pointed out that the real issue of discussion in this is concealed carry and self defense laws in general and profiling but it has become distorted and lost by the almost pathological need for some to prove the image they have built up of Zimmerman as a racist cold blooded killer. In reality for those who oppose these laws, the image the evidence tends to point to of an idiot who got in over his head with fatal consequences for a young man because he was carrying a gun is even more relevant to their argument.
