  •  So you are saying (0+ / 0-)

    If a woman had the exact same injuries and Zimmerman, you would still consider them minor?

    •  Good grief. (0+ / 0-)

      Zimmerman outweighed Martin and was taking martial arts classes for years - AND he was armed.

      They were no longer near the cement when Martin was shot.

      If it was a woman (maybe a CrossFit type) who outweighed Martin and was as physically strong as a man, then my reaction would be the same. If it was a woman, or a much smaller man who was clearly overmatched, she/he would have had a better case.

      it's all moot, though - see my post below. Zimmerman's story falls apart to anyone who understands fighting. The angle of the gunshot, the mere fact that the gun was free for such a shot - all wrong.
