I'm going with the orig post only .
George Zimmerman is a nut . Dangerous to everyone of any color. He is ( or was ) one of those types that can pass a background check yet has NO business with a gun of any kind . He is just off the hook . I don't know what his status on being able to carry a weapon is at this point but he sure doesn't need to be able to .

Second, the star witness for the defense was....TM's girlfriend. That's why he was found NOT GUILTY which does NOT mean INNOCENT.

SMH

A wrongful death lawsuit, even if this mooch has no money, would be what this guy needs, even if he had 30 years to pay it off, would be held over his head and he doesn't like anything held over him..

TM's parents have moved on...I'm just thinking it would be symbolic for GZ to have to pay..

Thank you very much but I never said GZ was innocent...

West was horrible to RJ, making fun of her, which put her on the defensive due to his lack of compassion..

Who said he ever was on the straight and narrow in the first place? He is a disaster waiting to happen. I just hope he doesn't kill anyone else in the process.

His record before killing TM wasn't too bad. iirc, a domestic violence charge for pushing or slapping his gf, with mutual restraining orders taken out. I think the woman later became a friend. And an assault of a cop at a bar, which if he were a black guy [Mike Brown or Eric Garner, for example], we'd hear more about how cops think nothing of false charges for breathing wrong in their presence.

Nothing to be proud of, and not someone I'd pick as a buddy, but no gun charges, robberies, burglaries, drugs, stuff like that to indicate he was a dangerous guy.

A shocking lack of information? If your implication is that you are profoundly better informed then I might remind you that JR was never legitimately described as TM's girl friend. There are pro-GZ sites that made that proclamation, but they did it to support GZ and to demean JR and by implication TM. And the posters on these sites didn't even claim to know JR well.
The truth from many sources including people who knew these teens well was that TM was a kind, supportive friend to JR. I suppose I should be shocked that you didn't know that.

BBM -- In the eyes of most people the behaviors you've cited would be described as a rather bad record for a young man: domestic violence + assault. Why do people give GZ these passes? That's what perplexes most people whom I know.

Straight out of HS, his father sent him to Florida, so something happened there that no one is willing to tell..it goes to his myspace page back then..

In 2005 he charged with resisting a police officer with violence..was given a diversion program, which obviously didn't work for him. He still appears to have anger and impulse control issues and doesn't take rejection well..

Well, if assaulting a cop wasn't a serious offense could you please explain why Mike Brown and others have died doing this.

Oh but the woman became his friend, and but but but if he were Black, yeah yeah yeah. Keep downplaying with your hypothetical's...

Nah. Nothing to indicate he was a dangerous guy.

Oh, I fully expect another meeting between GMZ and 2nd degree murder or voluntary manslaughter at a minimum. The dead can't speak and while this charmer's IQ probably falls on the sluggish side of the spectrum, he has a pretty good grasp of the finer points of a Stand Your Ground defense. I believe Air Marsal Osterman's moral failings are many and his judgment poor, but as a teacher, I can't quibble with him. The man knows his guns. At this point I can only hope the killer's next victim is from his own circle of family and friends, rather than from his ever-growing list of strangers who look wrong, walk wrong, talk wrong, play wrong, drive wrong.
