First off look at the whole transcript. Zimmerman stopped following Trayvon and was headed up to the mailboxes to meet police. Tah Dahhh. What happened from the time he hung up after Trayvon disappeared to the time the next 911 call was made? Could it be the truth that Trayvon waited and waylaid Zimmerman because he didn't like the way he was looking at him?

The testimony of John Good I believe is his name was clearly a case of a white man not wanting a white guy locked up.  Zimmerman took marshal art classes so obviously the person you saw doing the punches was Zimmerman you only see what you want to see (most people) The most credible witness was the white older lady that said it was the boys voice crying for help until the gun went off because I believe their was a struggle for life when Trayvon saw the gun Zimmerman probly was flashing for the simple fact that it was totally dark and rainy.  Besides what can anyone see accurately in total darkness for 10 damn seconds!

@DionneBuchanan-Simms You have not massaged the facts far enough. Better say TM was  9-year-old junior going home from Bible Class. (The online media photos prove his age, right?) Better say GZ was a drug-addled white supremacist body builder who stalked and tried to run TM down with GZ's Hummer, then deliberately put his (GZ's) nose in front of TM's fist as a provocation. Then let's say GZ let off both barrels  from his licenced sawed-off shotgun before reloading and blasting TM to Kingdom Come. Lets say GZ was laughing devil laughs the whole time. "Probly" Hah! No wonder the US justice system is going down the tube with the witch hunt the liberal left lynch mob, run from Capitol Hill, have put this gentle man, George Zimmerman, and his family through. Now they want to get his wife, to draw some blood, any blood to satisfy the mob who are baying for it.

Why are you showing a picture of Trayvon at age 12.  You chose to use that picture to continue to Gin this story up.  Report the story in an unbiased way.  It doesn't mean he should have been killed or that Zimmerman isn't an idiot.

@williamlpope I think the reason soundpam is asserting that you are an idiot is because your comment conveys that pretty clearly. If you need me to walk you through it like you're in Kindergarden, let me know....

@JulieCrosse @williamlpope You are both a couple of idiots.  My opinion is that Time uses the picture of the kid at 12 is to create the over the top response you two morons have.  He isn't nearly so sympathetic at 17.  If you can't figure that out, you are two stupid for words.  My comment in no way makes me an idiot, it is commentary on the reporting by Time.  You two are pathetic and part of what is wrong with this country.  You lack the ability to think.  Unfortunately you are still allowed to vote.  By the way I lowered myself to your level with insults because that is all worthless skin bags such as yourself seem to understand.  Ciao!

@JulieCrosse @williamlpope Clearly I have too much time on my hands.  2 points; I know why magazines use pictures and why they choose certain ones.  I think it is misleading in this case and I made a point.  I've been around media all my life and I don't like the built in editorializing the bulk of the media does.  You may not respond any differently to the 12 year old picture than the 17 but many people do.  I never defended Zimmerman.  This case has valid issues that need to be explored without hysteria.  

The second point concerns the name calling you and Soundpam resorted to.  You don't know me.  If you have the credentials you claim to have, why would your first response be insults?

As for my "rant" you might call it satire.  By resorting to insults the message is lost.  Just as you don't know me, I don't know you.  It's easy to throw out a bunch of insults you would never say to someones face.  

If you do the charitable things you say you are, good for you.

@williamlpope@JulieCrosseWow, looks like I hit a nerve. I don't think you lowered yourself at all, I think you've come out of the closet for what you are.Hello, have you met the press? They use pictures to get people to buy their magazines/papers, they've been doing that for a long time, get a clue. I don't think he looks less sympathetic at 17 than 12, I think he looks older.  For those of us who are intelligent enough to consult our brains when forming an opinion, a picture of Trayvon at 12 or 17 makes little, if any difference. For those with less brain power the pictures might garner a bit more sympathy, but again the pictures and when they were taken are irrelevant. The fact that you brought it up as though it was relevant is what clearly puts you in the idiot category. That and now your little 2 year old tantrum rant.  And for the record, I hold a Masters Degree, which should give you some indication of my ability to think, as for being a worthless bag of skin, my profession has been ranked #2 Nationwide right behind firefighters as the most trusted profession for, I don't know how many years running, and in addition to being a generous tax payer, I spend time and resources on many projects through my church and volunteer work. We are currently putting together layette kits for babies worldwide. I'm running the Shamrock race next month that benefits our local childrens hospital, I volunteer building houses for Habitat for Humanity....Full of love and life...go get some of that, sounds like you could use some.

@williamlpope Oh wait, you must be one of the idiots who fell for the fake pics of a tattooed rapper that the gun nuts were trying to pass off as Trayvon.

@soundpam @williamlpope In what way did I defend Zimmerman?  Read the post I called him an idiot.  But he still deserves a fair trial and the press should still report the story in an unbiased way.

@williamlpope @soundpam I called you an idiot because you're bringing up nonsense that has nothing to do with anything & are defending a scumbag like Zimmerman. Look at the FACTS - Zimmerman is a scumbag, lying, violent, mentally unstable, murderer. Those are FACTS.

@soundpam @williamlpope The picture in the Hollister shirt.  I believe he was 12.  My question to you is why would you call me an idiot.  You don't know me.  If you have a point to make, make it name calling just makes people focus on that.  My point was that time and other news outlets show a picture of this 17 year old as a 12 year old and that is misleading.  Doesn't mean he should be dead.  Doesn't mean Zimmerman isn't a complete moron for doing what he did.  Can you follow that line of thinking?  Zimmerman will get a trial and the evidence will come out.  Good luck in life.
