I honestly think they'll find him guilty. His only hope is the jury, 12 women. IMO 12 women could never agree on anything.

I think it's only 6 women. FL doesn't require 12 jurors.

Although I don't know many details on the case, if Zimmerman followed him after he was advised by police dispatch not to he was looking for a fight. He probably did shoot the kid in self defense but he got himself into that situation. Had he listened to the dispatcher he'd be a free man no doubt and the kid would have lived another day.

With all that said. I understand that the media has use old photographs and that he was starting to turn into a thug. But a kid only armed with skittles and a sweet tea is hardly suspicious.

First, the dispatch did not and CAN NOT advise him on what to do.
Secondly, he was on his way back to his truck when he was ambushed because he stopped, not because he was ordered to, but because Treyvon ran (and doubled back)

Third, the "Kid" was 6' 200+ lbs armed with a watermelon drink and skittles which is 2 of the 3 ingredients needed for a ghetto drink called "Lean" - He was short some cough syrup.

Oh, and Treyvon was high per autopsy reports.

So the dispatcher in 911 call didn't advise him not to pursue. I also know the pictures they showed on tv and the Internet were a few years old. I'm not saying he innocent. But if Zimmerman would have stayed in his truck instead of playing vigilante they'd both be in different shoes.

Having a 911 operator advise you to not keep a suspicious character in sight is not a police order. Zimmerman was totally within his rights to try to keep a suspicious character within view under the circumstances (which included lots of recent home invasions in his neighborhood).

There has been zero evidence that Zimmerman "played vigilante". There have been many trying to fabricate the idea that Zimmerman was playing vigilante.

So far, almost everything about this case has been more a pursuit of political agenda than any pursuit of justice. What happened has been a tragedy for all involved.

He was relying Treyvon's location to police.

Is THAT what you call a "Vigilante"? So calling the police and reporting suspicious activity (Walking near buildings and looking in windows) is beyond reasonable?


Have you even listened to the call or read the transcripts?

There's the transcript. I think it's 2:24 into the call he is asked if he was following him. And than he was told he didn't need to. Then he was basically told to wait for police. He shoulda never got out of his vehicle.

But it is not illegal to follow. It might not be smart, but its not illegal.
