I want to give zimmerman the benefit of the doubt. It does seem curious that he keeps winding up in the news. He might be having a string of bad luck or he could be as hot tempered as people believe him to be. This time it sounds like he's on the other end of the gun.

I can't speak for anyone else, but...somehow...I have been able to go through life for 60+ years without ever being involved in a shooting incident--either as a perpetrator or as a victim. Likewise, I have never had any domestic violence charges lodged against me--unlike our esteemed Mr. Zimmerman. For that matter, I have never been charged with any type of criminal offense.

Am I some kind of saint?
Hardly...but I think that I am more representative of the bulk of the American public than Mr. Zimmerman is.

What type of person is involved multiple times in both shooting incidents and domestic violence incidents?
What does this tell us about Mr. Zimmerman's personality?

Unlike any of us, the jury heard all the facts on the Zimmerman case. Jurors found the evidence against him lacking.
If any of you Zimmerman bashers had watched the televised trial, you'd know that the prosecutors had no case. Absolutely none! This case only went to trial to appease Sharpton's black mob. Facts don't matter to the ignorant.

Fact: Trayvon didn't have an arrest record. George had one before the Trayvon incident and has added to it since. What constitutes a "thug" in your world? I think I have an idea

George Zimmerman is an idiot. But I still believe that Trayvon Martin was a thug.

Sensible people already do. Being black does not define thug-ism.
But being stupid regularly, does... "thug is a s thug does."

Call TM what you want in your little close minded world, but that DOESN'T mean he deserved to die in the hands of a deranged NUT CASE.

Same in the USA. So apparently they do here as well.
