They just have to believe that GZ is a raging psychopath otherwise, their delusion of reality, that a poor Travon Martin was innocent, can't be justified. So the tabloids feed these people with pointless stories because they know the GZ obsessed, will just eat it up. Good for ratings and advertising.

Martin was a Thug, and not the innocent the US media was making him out to be, and he ended up like most Thugs. Case closed on that.

Not saying this is so , but speaking for my self as a kid I was large ( not fat ) for my age, and did not believe in fighting, and was forced into many fights, I had nothing to do with ,and got in trouble over them, it was very frustrating .
He threw a wine bottle at his girlfriend then threatened her by pointing a shotgun at her. Are you implying she is somehow responsible by "pushing to get a rise out of him"?

They can deny, and get into nonsense about how Trayvon attacked him blah blah blah but that is all window dressing.

It doesn't matter what GZ does from this point forward. They will always pretend that that behavior is completely divorced from the Trayvon situation, and not further proof of the poisoned soul that lies within him that murdered a young man for no reason.
You can say it countless times, but that doesn't make it true. You believe it, but that doesn't make it true. The majority of white people do not have animosity to black males. Usually they don't think about any male from another race unless reading something in the news. I think some black people are so biased in their beliefs they can't possibly change. It's too bad because in so many ways they are so mistaken.

The poster never said they did...she said the majority of Zimmerman defenders do. Are you implying most white people defend his actions? I'm white, and I sure don't.

No, I think that the jury did the right thing. TM was a thug who got what he deserved.

I think the jury made the right call because they had to make a decision based on evidence, not emotion. However, even if Trayvon was the biggest piece of crap kid on the planet, he didn't deserve to die. It wasn't Zimmerman's place to confront him. He was a citizen, not a cop.

Who would have guessed?
Too bad he can't go back on trial given what has happened since then. The outcome might be different knowing today what we know now about this guyi

How does he hold a job? I sure wouln't want him in my workplace.
Trouble isn't following him, he's creating it all himself. It seems he thinks violence (and guns) are the answer to all of his everyday conflicts. Wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't face another murder charge at some point in the future.

They are both idiots. GZ is just an idiot with a gun, and he won the fight between two idiots. Just like Brown and Wilson. Im not even going to call them "thugs" because people like to use the word "thug" now in place of the N word.
