  •  Zimmerman followed that kid because he had his gun (3+ / 0-)

    and fully intended to use it that night.

    If Zimmerman was so fritghtened that night by Trayvon and his hoodie, he would have kept his ass in his car instead of following the kid.

    According to Joy-Ann Reid, Zimmerman first told the police that Trayvon wanted to rob him (see a black teen could only be a thief::snark::) then changed his story when pressed by investigators.

    The girlfriend told police that she heard Trayvon saying 'Get off me' to someone before the phone fell  on the ground.

    I have the feeling Zimmerman will avoid Murder 2 conviction but manslaughter conviction is still likely to happen.

      So there's that.

      And please point to even ONE piece of evidence that shows that Zimmerman "intended to use" his gun that night.  And while you're looking for that non-existent evidence, see what you can find to explain the fact that Zimmerman had already called the police.  A person would have to be crazy to call police prior to carrying out a plan to murder someone.
