    Remember Rep Dewayne Bunch that was breaking up a school fight.Got punched and fell hit his head that died.
    Had a good friend that got into an argument that turned into a fist fight.He hit the guy the guy went down hit his head on side walk and died.My friend spent 15 years in prison for it and the student that hit Bunch pulled no time.

    You keep bringing this gated community thing up but there's no evidence to support what you say. Zimmerman's neighborhood was thug central and quite large, 260 houses. It could have very well been somebody on the inside, and there's nothing to support the idea that all the crime came from the outside. Everybody assumes that since it was a gated community, it was full of conservative middle class white professionals or something. This was hardly the case whatsoever. It was thug central, full of gangbanging minorities who exhibited suspicious behavior pretty much every day. The cops were called out there over 400 times in the year prior to this. As for Zimmerman not recognizing him as somebody who lived there... you're talking about knowing every resident of all the houses that come up on your screen here, and being able to recognize them in the dark, in the rain:

    That's an insane notion. Not possible.

    IT WAS a "Gated Community" and that is relevant under Fla law= WHY I mention it - SOME want to act like TM was "just walking along on a public street or sidewalk"- that was not the case at all.

    As for "thug Central" you intentionally don't mention many of the homes were in Foreclosure and illegally occupied (by less than "good folks") - which was one thing the neighborhood watch and HOA was taking steps to end.

    IMO everyone needs to stop making this stuff it was not- more thugs and gansta wannabe are bound to die until the reality sets in for them- not going to happen with "poor Trayvon" BS

    HOK. I have a question for everyone here that is still hung up on Zimmerman "following" the guy but ignoring the fact Martin is the one who initiated the fight. Not to mention that Zimmerman was on the phone with law enforcement the entire time.

    Say you pull into a dark parking lot somewhere and see a woman being physically assaulted by some random male. You're carrying but don't draw your weapon. You inject yourself to try and get the man off the woman. Things go south for you and you are now getting your head bashed against the pavement. Are you gonna defend yourself or worry about the consequences of doing so?

    You injected yourself when you didn't have to/need to, but the other guy started the physical confrontation. You were mature enough and responsible enough to not escalate by drawing, but now your life, and maybe hers, is on the line. What do you do?

    Martin could have gone home or called the police himself. He did neither. Bad choice.

    Here's the deal with the so called gated community. It was kind of run down and had turned into a ghetto. The initial cost of a townhouse there was $250,000 but due to the economy and environment, they now cost less than $100,000 which is crazy low in Florida. Even then there were 40 vacant houses, and over half of the remaining ones had turned into rental homes. It was a ton of glorified cheap apartments, and therefore was very diverse to say the least. Some people have this prestigious vision in their heads when the term gated community comes up, but this was not the case.

    Again (ad nauseum)

    Because IT IS a Gated Community the point is TM did not have "the right " to just be anywhere as a guest- he certainly had no right to be looking in neighbor's windows- period. I don't care IF you think it was "identical to Harlem" I made it quite clear the fact it's Gated matters under Fla law, you want to twist it to "something else" go right ahead.......:highly_amused:

    Let's just "cut to the chase" here :

    The "special prosecutor" LIED UNDER OATH (to be more precise she intentionally left GZ injuries out of the sworn statement in a clear attempt to dismiss the Grand Jury) The prosecution still faces sanctions on 3 (or more) counts of discovery violations and after ALL THAT - the state LOST the case no conviction.

    IMO that is quite telling YMMV

    Just blows my mind that people continually overlook the fact that Martin had lots of other options besides attacking Zimmerman. He had ample time and space to do anything else if he felt harassed or threatened. Instead, he chose to be a tough guy and paid the price. Why can't some people accept that?

    Again (ad nauseum)... there is no evidence that TM was looking in anybody's windows. I have no idea where you are getting this. Read the transcript. He was out in the open, looking around, looking confused, while in the rain, as if he were on drugs. Watch the convenience store footage right before he was shot, he was doing the same thing, walking real slow, dropping stuff, etc.

    Three weeks before this incident, Zimmerman did call to report someone looking in windows, but it was not Martin. There are no laws that say you can't walk down the road in a gated community. Even the pizza delivery guy has access to it. You going to shoot him for walking down the road and looking around?

    Since you know so much about this gated community stuff, please show what law is on the books for it, and where in the transcript it shows that Martin broke this law.
