    Interesting info on Trayvon. Especially the cell phone text exchanges about drug abuse, which the judge would not allow in court. A key point is the effect the drug cocktail called "Lean" can have,

    Yup. 17 year old with a handgun. Who also got expelled from school. Who also is on drugs and possibly selling them.

    Zimmerman is not to blame. Poor parenting is.

    Martin was not an angel, but he doesn't seem to have been engaged in any serious offences, either, certainly nothing that a lot of 17-year-olds don't do--people who grow up to lead productive lives. Even if we assume Zimmerman told the complete truth, Martin probably attacked Zimmerman because he thought he was pre-empting a mugging by this weird guy following him around, and, being a 17-year-old full of testosterone and youthful macho ideas, thought that violence was the answer. Having once been young, I can say that young men often behave foolishly. I still say it was a tragic failure to communicate more than anything...

    Avatar has it right. This kid was no angel and made the typical poor choices as a young man. However, he most likely didnt realize the guy he got into it with had a gun.

    Size really doesn't matter. Remember the old saying abou the dog, size of the fight in him. My Grandaddy gave me several,pieces of advise about fighting, first, don' start one but don' t back down, no such thing as a fair fight, goog Lord made a lot of things to hit a man with and your hands are the worst, pine knots, pipe work best and,hit him in the nose, he will see stars, and makes it hard to breath.make it hard to breath. If Martin hit in the nose, he he went down andvthecretbis history..

    Yea, POOR little Travon! B.S.! This punk beat the crap out of a bus driver because he didn't want to pay the fare! really a nice guy!!! He had a violent criminal record! Got kicked out of school for drugs ans Viloence! He was trouble "looking" for a place to happen! I get sick of the liberals trying to turn this punk into a folk hero. I'm sorry he got himself shot,but, I think Zimmerman "WAS" acting in self defense. The JURY thought so to!! So GET OVER IT and move on! Keeping this crap going is only to to lead to blood shed!

    In deference to Brian's question:

    a.) Innocent kid?

    b.) drug abuser/dealer?

    c.) dead punk?

    I don't know if Trayvon was using or dealing--doesn't really matter. By calling George Zimmerman a "crazy ass cracker" shows his disrespect for adults. He could have just as easily gone on home instead of engaging George Zimmerman at any point. There was no evidence that Mr. Zimmerman lassoed him to the ground. It would have been better to tell his Dad and let him handle things. Not to say that Zimmerman went over the top by shooting him.

    He is shown holding that money like the gangbangers hold their pistols. You don't learn that stuff in school. Interesting post Brian, esp. about LEAN.

    The trial wasn't about Martin or is character it was about Zimmermann's actions. Veridict - not guilty. Now he gets to run the gauntlet of civil suits but since he is probably financially wiped out, the lawyers may loose intrest.

    Now here is the thing - Martin was fairly normal for his age and background and that is what is bothering most people on that side of the fence. Not saying this is the way teenagers should be but that is what we have today in the big cities.

    The only purpose of a lawsuit at this point, since Zimmerman is broke, would be to take any income he might get from a book or movie deal. I suspect, though, that any movie makers will be negotiating with Martin's family.
