This guy needs to get the heck out of Florida and live low for a very long time. It's obvious that people are doing whatever they can to get under this dudes skin, and unfortunately for him it seems to be working.

It was just reported on the news that it was only glass from his car window that injured his face. Evidently, the shooter cannot aim.

It's illegal in Florida for a minor to possess a firearm.

I agreed with this guy's acquittal - just not enough evidence to convict him. But you could tell that he was a goofball.

Yes, I have called him one on here.

Ironically, two days ago I had Z to do in a game I play with a friend. We do different categories. The last one was virtually sending someone to an event or experience that would put them outside their comfort zone and possibly result in their personal growth. I chose George Zimmerman. I was considering sending him on a yoga/meditation retreat, but realized he wasn't ready for that and it wouldn't be fair to the other yogis/meditators, so I "sent" him on a 10 day anger management retreat in Florida given by The Star Foundation. Looks like George still really needs to do this...shall we take up a collection to send him? (it's not cheap---several thousand dollars). Or maybe they will give him a scholarship to attend---if they can help this guy, they can help anyone!

Exactly. He'd have illegal gun possession on top of the murder charges. And I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have been able to use self-defense as an excuse for killing.

Yeah it's not self defense when you leave your residence (as confirmed forensically at the trial) and double back on a person leaving a scene and then shoot them.

It is, however, self defense when you are leaving somewhere to go meet police and then you are attacked on your way from the scene.

I wonder if the people who call Zimmerman "guilty" jumped up and cheered 20 years ago when OJ was found not guilty.
