    I had a long reply in process but DK burped and I lost it.

    First of all, the calls matter and what doesn't really matter is whether he called 311 or 911 FIRST.  That's what doesn't matter.  But it did matter to you because you brought it up in your defense of George Zimmerman.

    It also matters 'John' because those calls are legally admissible in a court of law.  It's called evidence.

    Secondly, while it's nice that you 'listened' to the whole call that you referenced, it still doesn't explain why Zimmerman chose to follow this kid after the police told him not to.  And yes.  We do know this from the tape.  The kid was not shot dead near Zimmerman's truck.  Zimmerman was in his truck when he was told not to follow Martin.  So logic -- the same logic that a jury would have to supply with the only hard evidence that is available right now -- would dictate that the man had to have gotten out of his truck and followed the kid into the complex where he was killed.

    And DUH.  By you own statement:

    We don't know this. And he probably didn't. Trayvon's gf (and she hasn't made an official statement, that I'm aware of), says that on her cell phone call Trayvon said he had lost the guy who was following him.
    DUH.  That says that Zimmerman was following Martin.  Good grief.  You can't be that dense.

    What I was trying to say to you before DK went wacky on me is that ABC reported that the SPD may have been 'coaching' witnesses.  That's tampering.
    Questionable Police Conduct

    What I want is for Zimmerman to have to answer in court.  What he gets charged with is jumping the rope for now.

    And yes, you should provide credible news links to the things that you call 'facts' if you are going to go there.
