Maybe 'most' teens in his neighborhood have his type of school record. Fortunately, most teens don't.

Keep in mind, TM's life wasn't examined the way GZ's was, for example: was he in a fight club; where'd that jewelry really come from; why'd mom kick him out of the house; did mom and dad even know about their son's 'rebellious' behavior.

If this is a battle of who had the more nasty past, GZ at age 28 or TM at age 17, I'll go with GZ.
Since you are asking for a source about good grades, may I ask you about your source for his attendance record.
And I'm wondering why the dig about the youths in Trayvon's neighborhood.

Obviously TM must not have been a fan of Chris Rock.

Picture is worth a 1000 words. This is the real TM, not the photo of a 12 y/o TM disingenuously shown ad nauseam in the press. And for the claims that GZ is White, I'm not see much Anglo Saxon blood there. LOL

I never asked for a source for TM's good grades because I know there isn't a source. You can google 'Trayvon missed school' for the sources; iirc, something like 50 or 55.

You, or someone like you, said TM's school record was a 'typical' teen. Not in my local school districts; maybe in his, or yours.

Bias personified.

You reject the sensible explanation for Z's response to Serino; that he had the typical reaction to hearing one's own voice, particularly under unusual conditions.

Z never claimed he was being suffocated the Whole time. Ridiculous to suggest he could not have screamed during the attack.

[you're reference to 'a third set of hands' implies 6 hands ]

Actually, the jury was privy to far less information related to the case than anyone accessing the internet. The general public can hear or read every word the jury heard plus evidence deemed unimportant or unable to be presented and develop their own opinion. The jury was restricted to that information presented at trial and was unaware of statements made by Zimmerman as he declined to testify.

The jury only heard those things a couple of people in the prosecutor's office deemed appropriate to include in their case. Prosecutors make errors; investigators make errors. I don't believe there was a presentation at trial about the hallucinatory drugs with serious side effect Zimmerman had been prescribed and apparently was taking at the time of the incident and I don't believe he was tested in a timely fashion for the presence of those drugs. The jury knew none of this.

Well....., Obama is also 50% White. Yet he said TM, the thug pictured above, could have been his son, if he had lone. LOL

They were not unaware.

You neglected to mention, again, that Zimmerman's recorded statements as to what happen were played to the jury by the prosecution.

Juries are also presented real relevant information that isn't available anywhere else except in the court room.

That's cool, on weekdays he punches cops, chases people in cars, threatens people, smashes Ipad's, points gus at people, shoots teenagers, throws wine bottles, & on weekends he tutors kids. Such a great guy.

That bad bad thug Trayvon...

Beyond making posts to me, this is something that I haven't seen you do.

That's because I got bored of destroying your arguments to the point where you couldn't counter or respond to more than a sentence of my posts. Everyone else, go back and re-read our interactions to see what I mean.

That, and this thread has just gone in circles and at this point, it's pointless.
