WaldoKitty"They just have to believe that GZ is a raging psychopath ."

He has done that beautifully, from Martin to beating up his gf to this.

I have little doubt he has few birthdays left.

He has a history of domestic violence, and he's also used to daddy bailing him out of scrapes. His dad has probably been doing that since Zimm was a kid. Like he did in the TM case.

Any way you slice it, it was manslaughter, if not criminally negligent homicide. HE put them both in that situation against the advice of the authorities.

It's only a matter of time until this a-hole either kills someone or ends up dead himself.
I agree, and I thought that even before the verdict came down. I still think he might have been convicted of a lesser charge. But I suppose the Prosecutors would have been criticized for under-charging him had they not gone after the murder conviction. A no-win situation perhaps.

Agreed with first paragraph. He should have found a hole and dug down-deep for a couple years. Similar to Casey Anthony, if anyone even remembers that person.

Having served on a jury for the first time, mid-December just past, there is a big difference between "Not Guilty" and "Innocent". In fact, defense counsel made a point to clarify that with the jury pool before I and six others were selected. Defendant was Not Guilty, btw, though otherwise clearly a dirtbag in our minds (the jury). Justice was served, though, based on the case's merits.

Thus, in my observation of the case the other year, Mr. Zimmerman is not "Innocent" of much, by a long shot. Just the opposite. Of the charges? "Not Guilty" per the jury, clearly!

His subsequent behavior implies he's got some problems, I'm guessing something of a nasty little temper, and probably doesn't deescalate or understand other conflict resolution strategies. I'm further guessing the opposite: he escalates, and stuff gets out of hand. No excuse for that. I bet he'll do time, given sufficient runway: if not this infraction, then another eventually.

I think he is someone that that loses it when they feel disrespected. And he seems to constantly put himself in situations that all but beg someone to disrespect him.

To paraphrase Maya Angelou- when someone tells you who they are, believe them!

What I'm talking about, is the poster stated her opinion saying the majority of Zimmerman defenders feel negatively towards black people. You responded by saying she was wrong because "The majority of white people don't think negatively toward blacks...implying the majority of white people are also Zimmerman supporters, since she never said anything about the majority of white people.

"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."

The Florida D.A. did the same thing in the Casey Anthony case as well and she walked. Maybe they need to get some prosecutors who understand the whole "burden of proof" concept and file charges at the level where they can actually win the case.

You're assuming that at one point he WAS on the straight and narrow. I think he was and is a thug and looks for ways to be aggressive.
