  •  Hi, Vyan. I would like to go back a little in time (5+ / 0-)

    I assume you watched the zimmerman re~enactment video, as well as the "interrogation" video? The one with the nine polygraph questions?

    I watched both shortly after they came out and noticed that zimmerman made the same flub in each video. When being asked about what happened just before he shot Trayvon, he says "he (Trayvon) took his hand off his nose" then quickly corrects himself and says, "my nose and mouth and reached for the gun."

    Misspeaking once on an important detail is understandable, but twice, in separate interviews and the same mistake?  Yes, I'm just speculating, but to me it seems like george slipped up, and it was he who was on top of Trayvon, trying to keep him quiet. Thoughts?

    •  He then continues in the (5+ / 0-)

      Voice stress video to explain why there was enough space between him and Trayon to point a gun at him. He says he had space because Trayvon had both his hands on his nose and mouth and was pushing down and arched his back.
      So Trayvon had both his hands on Zimmerman's face, while at the same time was reaching for his gun.

      •  trayvon would have had to have more arms (5+ / 0-)

        than shiva to do what zimmerman says he did.

        i can't even listen to those tapes of zimmerman: he's so obviously a lying little fuck

        i just hope he and his wife don't choose this window of opportunity they have together to reproduce. it would be nice to have them be their own genetic cul de sac.

      •  I thought Z said Martin was punching him and (3+ / 0-)

        slamming his head on the concrete.  For that to be done all at the same time would take three or four hands. Now Z is saying Martin had 5 to 6 hands.

        Martin had to knock him down, get on top of him, punch him several times, grab his collar and slam his head on the ground a couple of times, while Z wiggled off the concrete and onto the grass, try to suffocate him, try to strangle him, and wrestle with the drawn gun, in less that 120 seconds.

        Then Martin got shot straight in the heart, said "You got me." and politely got up off of Zimmerman and then collapsed face down with his hands under his body and drown in his own blood.

        Anything, is possible.   But I would suggest Z get a better script writer.

        Why did a bullet fired at such close range shatter in Martin's chest and not exit his body?  Dumb dumbs and their like are probably still illegal and would belie his self defense argument.  He would have been armed with the intent to kill.

          1 minute. The call with his friend ended at 7:16, and that was at the very beginning. The shot was fired 7:16:51.

        •  The type of bullet that was used are designed (0+ / 0-)

          to expand on contact, and would explain no exit wound.

            Zimmerman carried a Kel-Tec 9 mm PF-9 that used hollow point bullets.  They are designed to expand inside the body, from side to side, even at close range.  Once shot and a person is hit, the bullet expands instantly and continues to do inside tissue damage to the victim.

             These types of bullets are marketed as a safer for self-defense, because they won't exit most of the time and thus there will not be a live bullet that could hit by-standers. They are very commonly used in the guns of people who have licenses to carry a weapon, either concealed or open carry, in the states that allow it.

          concrete?  not by taking z's ears in his hands - there was no z dna found on trayvon's hands...and certainly not by grabbing his hair...so...??????

          explain that zimmerman, you lying little shit.
