    Well, at least Twitter account existed, unlike the fantasy "what if" game that seems to pass for intellectual conversation in this thread.

    You can't prosecute 'plausible', though. That's the point. LOL

    What a completely fuckish point. Just incredibly stupid, kind of like your initial post. Some of us are actually trying to discuss why or why not there have been no charges, and you bring up racism, which is not at all a surprise.

    Don't you mean rational thinking, investigation, application of US Laws and the presumption of innocence?

    To many, this represents a modern day witch hunt, in which racism is thrown around as being the modern day witch-craft. As more information came out, it kind of showed a different side of the sensationalistic nature of news media and special interest groups.

    You're talking to walls. The people in this thread don't live in a logical world, they live in an emotional world. Kind of like the idiots in Congress today who wore hoodies and tried to sell their opinion as fact, on the floor of the House of Representatives.

    I still say this all goes back to Obama, who is getting exactly what he wanted. The guy thrives on fomenting divisiveness and internal conflict. Hell, it was his 'job' back in Chicago.

    I'll give you a hint, then maybe you can make a guess. The website EP just posted a picture from would commonly be described as such, especially with their lack of shame at promoting a confederate flag and ideals.

    As for what I am talking about (though I do like how you totally skipped over how you were corrected about what Trayvon's father said), it is concerning a particular set of photos circulating of a Trayvon Martin who is very much still alive, and from Georgia, but some crazy people wanted to try to say it was the murdered Trayvon Martin (from Florida):

    Do enjoy your hooded bubble though, PapaGrant.

    What does this even mean? Am I missing something here? I have no idea what your point is. Do you?

    stand up next to a door and see where your waist and elbows line up with the doorknob. Whoever this kid is, he's closer to 5' tall then 6'

    Modern day american society is an absolute disgrace. People are judged more than ever. Political correctness has reached an apex of societal degradation. Basic common sense has been replaced with angry crowds, "mic checks" and armchair advocacy via social media, internet memes, etc. Its a sad state of affairs of what this country has become. Its more divided than ever, the country is on the brink of class warfare and racial warfare, and the powers that be seem almost giddy about it.

    Exactly. That is why they have weight classes in sport of wrestling, boxing, etc.

    Champion lightweight boxers get into a ring with a heavyweight sparring stiff and are KILLED.

    Once you get into a 50lb or greater differential if becomes very, very difficult for the smaller person without weapons to subdue the larger. Punch them and run? Yes. Pummel them and sit on them, control them and "own" them. Much less likely.

    There is no witness I have read about that saw the very beginning of the altercation. So, there is no witness to who started it.

    Also, Zimmerman could have threatened Trayvon verbally or by flashing his gun.

    He also could have whipped out his cawk and started rubbing it. Doesn't mean you can prove it happened.

    Jeezus, this thread is pathetic.

    Are you fucking kidding with that horseshit?

    Unless you come up with a police report or a statement from the victim it didn't happen.

    Teenagers are dunderheads and some brag and lie all the time.

    Correct. Now take that logic, and apply it to the shooting.

    You're assuming that Zimmerman is in shape, which he does not appear to be. Martin is a football player and active teenager/young adult. I don't find it very likely this is like 2 MMA fighters with a 50lb differential in muscle mass fighting.

    Well, then Zimmerman was on drugs.

    I mean, WTF, he has over 50lbs on Trayvon, assume Trayvon in on top of him. All Zimmerman had to do is put up his (heavy) arms to block further blows to the face and then roll his body. Trayvon gets thrown off or rolled on top by Zimmerman. Even an out of shape dolt like him could do that.
