What do you think an all-female jury will mean for the trial of George Zimmerman?

"If Martin had killed Zimmerman would it still have been Zimmerman's fault?"

Yes, but Martin would still be subject to a trial by jury, just like Zimmerman... I'm not lettin' Martin off the hook here.... but the fact remains that Zimmerman escalated event and Martin is dead.

Also, why would an unarmed man initiate a fight with an armed guy? That doesn't make sense, does it?

Because at the moment of confrontation, who's actually thinking clearly?

Innocent till proven guilty and judged by 6 women. Women selected for jury by both sides. Cause both sides have to agree on the jury, don't they?

The fact that your not extending the right of defense to Martin as you are to Zimmerman says it all.

But it's only Martins thinking that would be clouded.... right?

The abc news story has the video showing an injured Zimmerman bfra. What now, Did he bang his head against the ground after he shot Trayvon? Did the cops help him out with a little night-stick action to help corroborate his story?

One question..... did Martin have the right to defend himself... yes or no?

By: brrrrk on 6/21/13 at 3:07

Ben,

It's not a hard question, and there's no grey area.... did Martin have the right to defend himself... yes or no?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/21/13 at 3:07

OK, let's turn the table a little. What if a black guy followed and shot an unarmed white kid? I can only imagine......

By: BenDover on 6/21/13 at 3:08

I went back through every post I've made on here and I've said nothing at all racist.

You people should apologize to me for calling me a racist.

Did Martin have the right to self defense.... yes or no?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/21/13 at 3:10

Ben, you were accused of that because you're setting a double standard.

BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By: BenDover on 6/21/13 at 3:13

Everyone has a right to defend themselves.

There's no evidence that Zimerman was the aggressor though, brrrk. There is evidence that Martin was the aggressor.

By: bfra on 6/21/13 at 3:13

Ben - Yes you definitely are a racist & no Ben aka yogi, I am not going to search thru all your comments to find anything you said. Now, remember the word comprehension & the fact that I watched the first news of them bringing Zimmerman in?

Your latest junk link, plainly states it is enhanced (do you understand that)? 2nd it is dated 4/2, the incident happened 2/26' Also stated new tape analysis used.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/21/13 at 3:15

Ben, he followed the guy and he had a gun. He was told to back off and he didn't. I would call that being the aggressor.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/21/13 at 3:17

If someone were fighting for their life don't you think they would injure the aggressor? When police investigate a homicide and there's evidence that the victim fought, don't they look for injuries on the person they suspect?

By: BenDover on 6/21/13 at 3:17

There's no evidence of me being racist just like there's no evidence that Zimmerman wasn't simply defending himself. You simply pick and chose the things that best support your predispositions, bfra.

ABC news seemed to put a lot of stock in the video. The police had the picture from right after the incident all along.

You watched the news right after and you got caught up in their narrative and now you're unwilling to let it go despite the facts of the matter.

Based on what.... Zimmerman's testimony? Face it....you're just a nutless version of Jughead.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/21/13 at 3:18

Setting a double standard shows bias, Ben. You want to talk about others having a bias yet you clearly have one yourself.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/21/13 at 3:19

brrrrk, there's a bigger difference than that between Jug and Ben. Ben isn't obsessed with anal popcicles and "huevos."

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/21/13 at 3:21

There's also evidence that Zimmerman was overly zealous when it came to heading the whole neighborhood watch thing. Others reported that he let it go to his head.

By: BenDover on 6/21/13 at 3:27

I'm just defending the minority position blanket... as I believe it to be far more plausible given all the revelations than is the majority position which seems to be based on a highly biased initial reporting of the incident.

By: BenDover on 6/21/13 at 3:30

Y'all have a great weekend. I pray justice is served in the matter how ever it turns out.

By: yogiman on 6/21/13 at 5:26

Facts are facts, fellows. You can argue all you wish but none of you have any of the facts on what happened.

Did Trayvon start the fight or did Zimmerman start it? Did Zimmerman try to leave Trayvon or did Travon just go after Zimmermon.

Why was Zimmerman shown to he having the hell beat out of himself?

You can make any comment you wish, but none of you know what you're talking about.

By: budlight on 6/21/13 at 6:39

Ben, when nothing else works, libs play the race card. You are the racist today; it will be someone else.

I would not want these libs on a jury judging me or anyone I love. They are clueless.

By: yogiman on 6/22/13 at 4:24

BenDover,

The "posters" on this sight keep calling you a racist. Aren't they actually a bunch of racists themselves because they are favoring Trayvon Martin because of his race.

Why can't any of them explain why Trayvon's photo is constantly being shown as a child when he's (was) a 17 year old young man? According to the picture, it is highly questionable he is even a teenager yet. He looks more like a 12 year old, 13 at the most and intelligent people can remember how fast they matured when they reached that teenage bracket,

And if that young man was eligible to join one of our services, he was a young man, not a weak child any more.

Ben: We all know at this point and for several years now, the Left considers
everyone other than themselves as racist in any disagreement. Brothers
Jackson and Sharpton have shown that works and creates the flash they
need in support for their positions and stories whether there's any merit or not.
For additional support "Bigot" is their second favorite attack word. Like a
duck, let it roll off your back and continue forward. Continue not Lean.

Have you ever heard of what church either of them a pastors of, govskeptic? Recon they're lying about being pastors in using it to make a few buck?

Aren't both of them multimillionaires? Has their "churches" paid them that money? Maybe we should form a church and act like them. Heck, at my age I could settle for a few hundred thousand.
