I read our newspaper and it said Zimmerman said he shot Martin as self defense because Martin 'hit him in the eye'. I don't know what this world is coming to. The police said Zimmerman lied and shot Martin because Zimmerman is a racist.
i dont know about zimmerman beeing racict but Seminole County Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester revoked Zimmerman's bond Friday because he learned that Zimmerman and his wife may have lied to him about their assets when he set bond. Prosecutors provided evidence that Zimmerman had at least $135,000 he didn't disclose to the court in a PayPal account he had set up to pay for his defense.
Looks like the news media and other things are coloring your opinion.
You guys are talking about racism against Martin as the cause. For one thing, how could Zimmerman have identified his nationality when it was raining and Martin had a hood on? I'm not even sure that Zimmerman thought the skittles and iced tea were weapons; probably, something else was. Anyways, Zimmerman thought Martin was checking out houses to STEAL from later, so, he followed him.
After the incident, Zimmerman had injuries on the back of his head, something, as someone else said, you don't get from someone defending himself.
It only got worse from there. When he went into hiding and lost contact with his lawyers, it was because he had a BLACK ASSASSIN CULT after him! I would do the same if something scary like that was after me! In our effort to remove racism against blacks in America, we are condemning anyone who hurts one.
I still think some of what Zimmerman did was wrong, but the case goes much deeper than you think.
