    @MataHarley:

    wigmon, the prosecutors are well aware of the “confrontation”, in the sense you use, because that is why they filed 2nd degree murder charges

    That reads as if you are citing the prosecutor’s decision to go to trial as evidence of guilt. Is that the meaning you intended?

    Because, the affidavit of arrest for 2nd degree murder has been denounced as insubstantial and unethical by a number of legal experts. Have you commented on that? I could easily have missed it.

    The ‘confrontation’ scenario is most definitely disputed. The alternative story is that Zimmerman stopped following when the dispatcher called upon to do so, was looking around briefly to establish his location, when Trayvon Martin turned back, approached Zimmerman, knocked him down with a punch that broke his nose, and then straddled him and began pounding his head on the pavement. There is evidence for that scenario. What is the evidence for the scenario of Zimmerman following Martin after being instructed not to do so? And, why should that convict him of murder anyway?

    I see that Dr J continues to breathlessly glom onto whatever the media shovels his way, especially when it suits his preconceived agenda.

    So, with the leak of some details of the autopsy report what, precisely, has changed?

    Not a damned thing.

    There has never been any doubt that Zimmerman and Martin were involved in a physical altercation with one another. There are multiple witnesses to that effect. So, what do we know now that we didn’t know two days ago?

    What we know is that Martin had two injuries: a gunshot wound to his left chest and [one] small abrasion, no more than a quarter-inch in size – on his left ring finger below the knuckle.

    That’s right folks… this breathless panting and salivating over media accounts of Martin’s injuries boils down to [one] small abrasion, no more than a quarter-inch in size.

    Hmmm… what does that prove exactly? What does that tell us about the events of Feb 26th that we didn’t already know? That’s right, not a damned thing.

    [One] small abrasion, no more than a quarter-inch in size most certainly doesn’t support the meme that Zimmerman was getting the bat snot beaten out of him to the point that he feared for his life.

    We know from Zimmerman’s medical report that he had two minor cuts to the back of his head; one was 1/4″ long, the other less than 1″ neither of which required sutures.

    We know that Zimmerman had a likely broken nose for which he did NOT seek any sort of medical attention the night of the injury. In fact, the PD’s offer to take him to the hospital. Nor did he follow up with an ENT for additional treatment. In fact, the only reason Zimmerman went to the doctor at all was to get a release to return to work.

    It’s funny to hear people talk about how horrific Zimmerman’s injuries were, and pontificate endlessly about how those injuries are supposedly visible in surveillance video from the police station. [Snicker]

    Those injuries…those huge gashes…those life-threatening wounds…that supposedly justified shooting a 17 year old to death…amount to nothing more than two cuts, one 1/4″ and [the other] less than 1″ long.

    Yet we are supposed to believe that those injuries justified shooting Martin to death?

    Laughable.

    While the cheer leading squad has been occupied with their masturbatory fantasies they have failed to realize that these two medical reports do nothing to bolster Zimmerman’s case whatsoever. In fact, quite the opposite is true.

    Talk about “dominoes falling”.

    If Mr. Zimmerman and Mr. O’Mara are smart, they are plea bargaining like crazy right now.

    MSNBC is reporting Trayvon Martin died from a single gunshot wound to the chest fired from “intermediate range,” according to an autopsy report.
    So, what does that mean?
    An autopsy report is based (usually) on what is found on the body as opposed to forensics which deal with clothing and other evidence.

    It means the muzzle is held away from the skin but close enough that it still produces powder tattooing. This type of wound is also characterized by numerous reddish-brown to orange-red lesions around the entrance to the wound.
    http://www.relentlessdefense.com/forensics/gunshot-wounds/

    But is that based on his skin or his clothing?
    Wounds Through Clothing:

    The passage of a bullet through clothing can alter the appearance of the wound and cause the examiner to reach different conclusions regarding factors such as the range of the gunshot. When there is clothing between the firearm and the skin, you will not find soot and powder on the skin, and searing is lessened or can be prevented. Therefore, the usual methods of determining the distance of the shooter from the victim cannot be used. Whether the powder passes through the clothing depends on the material, the number of layers of clothing, and the form of the powder. Ball powder can penetrate up to three layers of clothing, while flake powder may fail to penetrate a single layer.

    In inches and feet?
    I wonder.

    Benjamin Crump (bottom feeding tort lawyer) recently appeared on the Bill O’Reilly Factor. O’Reilly was calling for some common sense and restraint to be used on both sides when reporting on the Martin/Zimmerman case. Crump then immediately went into his media created spin story of how Trayvon was defending himself against a man with a 9 MM gun.

    Which poses the question: is Crump now claiming that Zimmerman had brandished his weapon, or that Trayvon was aware of an unholstered weapon, while he was breaking Zimmerman’s nose, blacking Zimmerman’s eyes and bashing Zimmerman’s head against a concrete sidewalk? This claim requires the willing suspension of disbelief to think that Martin was defending himself against a man with an exposed weapon and had the time to do as much bodily harm to Zimmerman as he did.

    Common sense tells you that if Zimmerman had his gun in his hand, that Martin would have been trying to relieve Zimmerman of that weapon, not continuing to beat Zimmerman allowing Zimmerman the opportunity to shoot him while Martin is throwing punches.

    There are those here who have already decided that Zimmerman is guilty of murder. Who have declared that Zimmerman was wrong for following Martin in the first place (not a crime), that Zimmerman initiated the physical confrontation (no proof of that claim) and that Florida’s SYG laws did not allow Zimmerman to use his weapon in the first place (wrong by every Florida SYG statute). I would like to see them argue that with Alan Durshowitz.

    But then, we should doubt everything that comes from Crump’s mouth as he is the one who created the “Skittles and Tea” story, was the one who, three weeks after the incident, spoke for DeeDee, the alleged girlfriend, who claimed that DeeDee was so overwrought that she could not even attend the funeral (although she was quite active on her Twitter account the whole time), who contacted Al Sharpton to take the shooting national and who hired Raul Julison of Julison Public Relations to handle all media stores. Yeah, Crump is a really reliable source, but only to those who cannot think for themselves and who buy into the media spin created by race baiters, bottom feeding tort lawyers and PR firms connected to the Pigford scandal.

  6. I don’t think I would be interested to go to the hospital to remain there ,even if my bruises required it, because I know of the racist blacks who did in fact want my head, would have found me so easy,
    so the fact that he did not admit himself in the hospital have nothing to do with the extent of the bruises.

    yes that’s what I thought, it was fired while ZIMMERMAN was still body lock to TRAYVON,

  10. Not that it matters but I dont believe that Zimmerman’s intent was to shoot Trayvon. I think thats quite obvious. That is why I said led to an “unfortunate event”. I do however believe after listening to all the tapes that he displays signs of paranoia and I thought this before I knew about the adderrall. He was prescribed it prior to the shooting. Even if he did not abuse it- no one knows how they will react to a medication until it is taken and the doctor can see so they can adjust the dosage. I am not trying to prove that this may have been the root cause for the actions that ensued that evening but I do believe it is worth looking into. I dont give a dam about percentages- many go unreported- people who abuse it dont even report side effects because then they will be taken off of it. I think everyone should try adderall and then take a poll and post a percentage. Guaranteed you will have a whole population of people with psychosis and addicted because the good outweigh the bad. (weight loss, high energy, focus etc) I am speaking as a human being to other human beings here and saying it should not be overlooked. Maybe I can recognize the behavior because I have experienced it. When you see someone is angry or someone is happy- you know these things because you have experienced them and recognize them. That is why I say if you havent taken it google peoples experiences with paranoia and psychosis. You cannot recognize the pattern therefore you must rely on false statistics. Im not saying Zimmerman is guilty because I do not believe its his fault a medication prescribed to him may have caused side effects that he probably didnt even think was a side effect. When you experience any kind of paranoia you believe what you are thinking and seeing is really happening. Adderall is for focus- so focus + paranoia is not a good mix. He was obviously very focused on Trayvon that night and had it in his head already that he was up to something which made him do things that contributed to the final showdown. First following him, staring at him, calling the cops, saying things like “they always get away” and “hes looking at me, reaching in his pants or whatever he said” AT that moment though I am convinced he created something more than it was because he was already convinced in his mind Trayvon was up to something. He created a paranoid delusion and responded to something HE created in his mind. In the end Trayvon was a few doors away from his fathers girlfriends apartment right? so that should tell you he was going to where he was staying. I do believe that the fight took place and in the end it was self defense. I also believe Zimmerman made a bad decision to not just stay put when the cops were notified becuase hindsight will show him that he created everything that happened that night by his actions and reactions. It could have been avoided like almost everything else bad that happens. Trayvon was no threat to Zimmerman or his life at the moment of the 911 call. No one here really knows if he stopped following him after he insinuates he does. Im not saying anything I believe is the truth- I could never say I know for sure about anything unless I have experienced it myself and still every situation is unique so the best I could do is understand. This is not a black and white case.(no pun intended). The medication he was prescribed should be looked into to see if he took it and how much of it he took. If it was prescribed prior than the shooting and he was taking it- he was in the beginning guinea pig stage of medication prescription. He made what 500 other calls to 911 in the past- did he ever follow or fight with the people he called on? Probably not because he was in his right mind. Medication like Adderall takes you out of your right mind and supposedly puts you in a better focused mind. Maybe if he had ADHD he wouldve let himself get distracted and let authorities handle it instead of letting the thought of following him even enter his mind. I know you guys/gals here like to deal with hard facts and what you read on police reports and statistics, but I am telling you from experience- theres alot of corruption out there that doesnt make it to the public, Doctors are also corrupt as well as Police (Florida resident here) Adderall-AMPHETAMINES- is prescribed when you simply tell a Doctor I have fatigue, im forgetful, etc. No real tests are run. Was I in their study? Did I suffer paranoia as a side effect? Maybe. Someone mentioned ambien. Have I taken ambien and know first hand it can send you into a lucid scary delusion? Maybe. Was I in any studies? No. Dont believe statistics… they are not accurate. Unless everyone is studied and in their numbers then it is not something you can rely on. Was Zimmerman in that study of 10%? Zimmerman could have fell IN that 10% for all we know if he did take it! Thats why it need not be overlooked in this case. Too many people are on Adderall these days for the wrong reasons.(women to lose weight, have more energy – WE ALL NEED more energy! We all have ADHD) If we want to go by “facts” most A.D.D. is diagnosed in youth for hyperactivity. Adults are prescribed it for – fatigue and then get hooked on amphetamines and cant sleep so now need a sleeping aid. Adderall is a strong medication. The fact he was prescribed a sleeping aid should tell you that he obviously took it and couldnt sleep. So that alone says he wasnt just prescribed it, he has taken the medication and experienced a side effect and was prescribed something else. We will never know anyway because ADHD is too big of a busine$$ to ever come out as a contributing factor that could have led someone to follow, fight and to kill someone else in self defense.

    @MataHarley:

    First a comment on the prosecutors word “confrontation”. Their investigator testified under oath that he used the term as in the two “came together”, not that Zimmerman forced the issue. He’s already testified to this, so I’m not sure how that fits into their M2 argument if they are admitting all they meant by using the word was that the two met face to face, without any idea how.

    I think you’ve way overcomplicated the issue with your post. My comment on whether Zimmerman committed any crime prior to the “confrontation” was specifically in regards to the SYG law, but also applies to the M2 charge. As long as he was not doing anything illegal up to the point that the confrontation turned violent, then he can invoke this law and is immune from prosecution, as long as Martin struck first and the amount of force he used in defense was appropriate. In this case, since he used deadly force, the prosecution has to show beyond a reasonable doubt that either Zimmerman started the violence or that he did not fear “great bodily harm”. Quite the hurdle for them since they’ve admitted to having no evidence that Zimmerman was doing anything other than returning to his vehicle when the “confrontation” occurred, don’t know who started the fight and that Zimmermans actual injuries (not just fear of injuries) likely meet the criteria for “great bodily harm”.

    The fact that you cite this other SYG case as a comparable is quite frankly disappointing for someone of your intelligence. The woman left a confrontation to go to the garage to get a gun and return, which SYG clearly does not allow. You don’t have to retreat, but you can’t leave the conflict, go get a weapon and return. I think her sentencing was a bit much, though she did shoot in the direction of children.

    I’d like to see a citation based on the known evidence that indicates Zimmerman broke any law prior to the start of violence. It could be that he did, but I am not aware of any available evidence that indicates this.

    Also, your definition of “depraved mind” does not fit mind. I know of no legal instruction that defines a depraved mind as “not giving clear thought to the events that could happen”. A depraved mind is more along the lines of having evil intent without regard for human life. The states investigator has testified that they have no evidence that Zimmerman was doing anything other than returning towards his vehicle when the “confrontation” occurred. Unless there are witnesses that will testify that they heard Zimmemran screaming threats or racial slurs, the prosecution doesn’t have a prayer of getting anyone to accept the depraved mind aspect.

    He had THC in his blood.
    That’s the active ingredient of pot.
    So, he was under the influence.
    Did dad know?
    Where was dad when Trayvon was getting stoned?
    One state (I forget which) has decided on an amount of THC in one’s system to be called ”impaired.”

    Having THC in his system does not mean Martin was stoned at the time of the incident. It can still be detected a month after last use. It’s already known that he’d been suspended for possession of marijuana residue. Also, marijuana does not have a reputation for causing violent behavior.

    His being found with stolen property and a burglary tool makes more of an impression on me. It’s that and the other wannabe gangster indications that make me wonder if the attack on Zimmerman was about “respect” in the thug life sense.

    Negative. The metabolized THC remains for months, not the initial dose of THC, which Martin had in his system and which also means he had smoked the crap hours before.

    Martin committed a forcible felony on an armed citizen. Poor choice on his part. Anything outside the last 60-90 seconds before the round was fired is specious and the case IS the criminal assault that Martin visited upon Zimmerman that resulted in the use of lethal force. Trying to read anything else into the case is pointless. Please do chase yourselves around the barn and keep projecting your personal prejudices against Zimmerman, SPD, Wolfinger and anyone else that doesn’t measure up to your high standards. Especially Mr.Aye, you’ve had a hard on for GZ and the SPD from day one.You’re not going to get the result you want from the jury trial, but what the hell Holder may give you what you want when he tries to railroad them with a Federal Civil Rights case.

    Different times I have written my politicians, and they answer me, but they always mail me and use the pre-written long-winded answer, and I don’t remember what I wrote them. I always give them my email address, but they still reply by the USPS. I guess that is their way of helping them.

    The best way to learn things on your computer are the “Dummies” books. I have used them for years. They explain things in simple and fun ways. Years ago, one Lotus program I bought came with “Lotus For Dummies.” Get a “Dummies” book for the operating system you have and you will learn a lot. My problem is that I don’t use many of the features, so I forget the “shortcuts.” I am retired, and have all of the time in the world, so taking the scenic routes is OK with me.

    There are two DIFFERENT kinds of computers: The PCs and the Apples (commonly called Mac). They run on different operating systems, but you can run Windows programs on a Mac because it uses the exact same Intel chip that the PCs use. I quit using a PC after if froze up like they are known to do. Macs hardly ever freeze up. FYI, most of the computer games for the PCs are created on Macs because of their superior graphics.

    @Ivan:

    Of course, Aye, you can continue betraying your race…

    Ivan, you stupid bitch!

    How can you even begin to make such an accusation against me? Oh, that’s right…You can’t because you don’t have even the slightest effing clue what race I am.

    I have never based my arguments on race here or anywhere else. Nor have I ever said anything here or anywhere else that could be remotely construed as racist in any direction.

    You, however, boil every issue down to race don’t you? That’s your standard MO. Everything boils down to race. You’ve made clear your revulsion for other races since your arrival here.

    You are, in short, the most racist dumb azz idiot I’ve ever come across. You’re a walking, talking, knuckle-dragging, real-life argument in favor of forced sterilization.

    It’s clear that the best part of you ran down your momma’s leg.

    For those who wish to claim that Martin was “stoned” or “high” or “under the influence” or “drugged out” the night he was shot, you might want to stop with your lying at least long enough to gather the facts:

    Among the voluminous evidence released Thursday in the shooting death of 17-year-old Florida high school student Trayvon Martin is a toxicology report showing that the teen had trace levels of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, in his blood and urine.

    The evidence includes abundant new information: conflicting witness statements, an autopsy report showing that Martin, who was black, died from a single gunshot wound to the chest and medical records documenting that Hispanic neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, who will stand trial for second-degree murder, had a broken nose the day after Martin’s death. Yet the media is focusing on the marijuana findings.

    That’s a mistake that only serves to distort an already contentious case. The levels of THC detected don’t reflect Martin’s character or even his state of mind the night he was shot. For one, they are so low as to almost certainly not be connected to recent intoxication: 1.5 nanograms of THC were found as well as 7.3 nanograms of THC-COOH, a metabolite of THC that can stay in the system for weeks after cannabis has been smoked. Immediately after inhaling, THC levels typically rise to 100 to 200 nanograms per milliter of blood, although there can be a great deal of variation.

    “THC in blood or urine tells us nothing about the level of intoxication,” says Carl Hart, associate professor of psychology at Columbia University and author of the leading college textbook on drug use and behavior. “That would be like someone going to have a beer some evening, and when he goes to work the next day, you can find alcohol metabolites in his bodily fluids. That says nothing about his functioning.”

    And this:

    The autopsy says medical examiners found THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, when they tested Martin’s blood and urine.

    [Larry Kobilinsky, professor of forensic science at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York], said the amount was so low that it may have been ingested days earlier and played no role in Martin’s behavior. He doubts the judge will even let it be used by the defense if they try to introduce it at trial.

    Of course, none of those finding are going to matter to those who in such a hurry to lynch the black guy.

    @Mike O’Malley:

    First of all Mr. O’Malley… Ivan is NOT a woman and no insult has been directed at a woman.

    So, your opinion on the matter is silly, pointless, and uninformed. Of course, that’s what we’ve come to expect from you.

    Secondly, since you’ve poked your head out, I will invite you to address your own racist tendencies which have been left in plain view on this thread.

    I notice you’ve been avoiding that issue like the plague. Running. Ducking. Dodging. Ignoring. Hiding in the darkness.

    Hmmm… Why is that? Why is it that you cannot explain to everyone here why you’re holding the African-American female to a different standard than the two white guys?

    A straw man is a component of an argument and is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent’s position. To “attack a straw man” is to create the illusion of having refuted a proposition by replacing it with a superficially similar yet unequivalent proposition (the “straw man”), and refuting it, without ever having actually refuted the original position.

    @Mike O’Malley:

    Mr. O’Malley, you’ve had multiple and repetitive opportunities on at least two threads on this site to explain or defend your position regarding Ms. Fulton and the “unfavorable light” you claim has been cast on her by supposedly quitting her job.

    You’ve been given multiple opportunities to answer very basic questions:

    If Ms. Fulton did indeed quit her job (and there’s no evidence that she did) how, precisely, does that cast “an unfavorable light” on her?

    How does that work exactly? I am genuinely interested in knowing.

    Have we suddenly time-traveled place in American history where an African-American female doesn’t have the right to decide when or if she will continue working without approval from the overseer?

    When John Walsh quit his job as a hotel executive and Marc Klaas quit his job as a rental car agency franchise holder were they, too, cast in “an unfavorable light”?

    Or, is that whole “unfavorable light” thing reserved exclusively for African-American females who (supposedly) quit their jobs after their teenage sons are shot to death?

    I’m genuinely curious about how it works in the minds of those who wish to sneer and point fingers.

    Even today you continue to duck, dodge, evade, and avoid.

    It clearly abundant that you hold racist views and tendencies you are unable, or unwilling, to even attempt to defend though you’ve been presented with multiple opportunities.

    Congratulations on that.

    Wow, you really have hit rock-bottom. Is this what passes for rational discourse in your ever increasingly small world?

    I feel sorry for you, Aye. Mata and you have become more shrill in your attacks on the board members who stood their ground and defend the wrongly accused Geo. Zimmerman.

    The reality is that you and Mata were 100% wrong in your hi-tech lynching of Zimmerman from the initial thread that began a little over a week ago. Yet, you and Mata refuse to accept any responsibility for your standing up for the DRUG DEALING, DRUG USING Martin.

    Any time you wish to apologize to Dr. John, a great guy whom you excoriated in previous threads, I suggest you do so publicaly so we can all see you’ve manned up.

    God bless,

    Nan excerpt: More from the autopsy of Trayvon Martin.

    He had THC in his blood.
    That’s the active ingredient of pot.
    So, he was under the influence.
    —————————-
    Yes, THC is an active ingredient of pot. The autopsy report said Martin had a “trace amount” of THC in his blood. The number quoted by the Examiner’s report indicated a trace amount. The report is not easily understood by laymen. Scientifically, a trace amount of the chemical compound of pot indicates the subject used the substance 2 weeks — to 90 days prior to death. That reduces Martin being under the influence of pot, to a non-issue according to the science. Trace is a (scant amount) which stays in the human system up to 90 days.

    We don’t know if Zimmerman’s Rx medications had any effect on his actions. One side-effect of his medications is aggressiveness. Sanford PD investigators did not take blood samples on Zimmerman, which indicates sloppy investigational work.

    @Aye:

    While I question your reason for wanting to inject race into your comparison of Sybrina Fulton to John Walsh and Mark Klaas, it is the actions of each that should be compared, not their race.

    When Adam Walsh was kidnapped and missing, and Polly Klaas was kidnapped and quickly found murdered did:

    John Walsh or Mark Klaas immediately hire attorneys who started claiming that the police departments were not doing their jobs and were neglectful in their duties?

    Did either men, or their wives, sign on as clients to an attorney who has a reputation as a bottom-feeding tort lawyer who plays the race card?

    When did either men create their foundations in honor of their (then known to be dead) children? Was it within a month after the child was missing? And what was the purpose of those original foundations?

    How soon after the kidnapping of their children did Mark Klaas and John Walsh leave their jobs?

    Did either men hire a PR firm to deal with all the media reporting on the kidnapping of their children so that the PR firm could manage the spin that was being put out by their lawyers?

    How soon after the kidnapping of their children did Mark Klaas/John Walsh hold press conferences with race baiters and bottom feeding tort lawyers accusing the police departments of not doing due diligence in investigating their cases? And how soon did either men hold money bomb benefits for their “foundations?”

    Did either men refuse to cooperate with law enforcement’s investigations until they discussed it with their attorneys as Tracy Martin did?

    “Page 17 of discovery

    Sanford Police Department

    Report by Stacie McCoy, SPD
    Mod Date: 3/9/2012

    On March 1, 2012 Inv. Singleton contacted a representative from T-Mobile who told her if the Sanford Police Department obtained the cell phone number and the pin number to the account they would be able to bypass the swipe code on the cell phone.

    On March 5, 2012, I contacted Mr. Martin (victims father) via cell phone and asked if I could obtain the pin number from the victims cell phone. Mr. Martin stated he would contact his lawyer before releasing that information.

    When you can show that either John Walsh, or Mark Klaas, aligned themselves with someone the caliber of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, or perhaps David Duke, then you have a comparison.

    The sad part is that I have started to feel sorry for Sybrina Fulton. She sent her son, who was suspended from school for reasons other than being an Eagle Scout, to his father, I am sure hoping that the father could straighten her son out, has rapidly become the Cindy Sheehan of 2012, and as soon as her usefulness is used up by the bottom feeders she has allowed to attach themselves to her, she will be thrown under the bus by them.

    If there is any race comparison to be made, it is this: had Trayvon Martin been white, and George Zimmerman been black, this case would not be known about by many Americans. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are not beating the bushes to bring justice to the four black teenagers that recently beat a U.S. soldier to a pulp.

    Generally I don’t waste my valuable time with bottom feeder sniveling scum, but I would certainly hope that most would demonstrate a higher degree of education and reading ability. No where I have “lynched” Zimmerman. I have merely explained the prosecution’s approach for the charges. If they do not have sufficient evidence to convince a jury beyond all reasonable doubt, Zimmerman will be acquitted. If not, he’s going to be sorry he didn’t plea bargain.

    It’s been explained by me what the prosecution has to prove. If you’d prefer something that doesn’t offend any of your personal sensibilities that conflict with your personal hatred of me, then you may wander over to FindLaw’s blog to a similar explanation… sans all the hormones and testosterone flying around here… by Andrew Chou. He repeats what I’ve said, and what a few here seem to have a problem comprehending, as to what the prosecution needs to prove to get a 2nd degree murder charge to stick.

    Which brings me to those who prefer to use their own layman nomenclature and common daily use definitions for “depraved”, and ignore the use of that phrase in the legal world. One would think some would do a few simple searches of legal definition sites – like US Legal, or FindLaw – would lay those misconceptions to rest. But apparently not. Now, with this thread, it’s the third time I’ve linked to legal resources. “Depraved mind” or indifference is simply a disregard for human life, and one’s actions demonstrated a disregard for the potential for damage or injury to human life.

    Linking to Florida’s standard jury instructions (pg 6), as laid out by the FL Supreme Court you will notice that even vehicular homicide… ergo a simple car accident resulting in a death… is a category two “depraved mind” murder.

    If the prosecution does not believe Zimmerman’s story about taking two minutes to get back to the safety of his car, and continued to search for Martin… while armed (especially since Zimmerman himself had noted that Martin tried to avoid Zimmerman) they will attempt to prove that an armed Zimmerman demonstrated a disregard for the potential of injury or loss of life if the two met. It’s as simple as that. Whether the prosecution can convince a jury of that is up to them.

    As far as the drugs…. no where did I “focus” on Zimmerman’s prescription use. Frankly I wouldn’t care if Martin was stoned and Zimmerman had just popped his sleeping pill. I only noted that it’s the usual dangerous procedure by both doctors and the state to load people up on one drug to do one thing, and another to counteract it. Since I lost a nephew at a young age to these types of drugs… prescribed to him from grade school forward… I’m well aware of the yo yo effects they can have on a personality after a long period of use. We have no idea how long Zimmerman was on those drugs. But if you ask me whether I would find marijuana or that combo of drugs on anyone’s body more likely to affect a person’s mental and psychological capacity, the Adderall/Temazepam wins hands down. Smoking pot doesn’t move a body to violence. On the other hand, there’s been quite a bit of research on teens who’ve gone off after being on Ritalin… the more mild version of Adderall… for extended periods. My guess is that if Zimmerman had these in his system long term, he’s got a good defense for himself as being mentally incapacitated.

    Oh yes… in response to my basic information about the two drugs in combination, drj sez So we’ve got Zimmerman diagnosed already but let’s not talk about Martin’s drug use and sales. Not to point out the obvious,drj, but apparently Zimmerman *has* been diagnosed already… not by me, but by his doctor who prescribed that combination of drugs. And if you think that the use of marijuana vs those drugs has any equivalency, you’d better be dropping your “doctor” handle, so people don’t think you know more about something than you obviously don’t.

    But if some want to continue to use the word “lynching”, that apparently is confined to those bent on doing so to Martin. It’s not only embarrassing to see such racial bias on display here, forming conclusions about a teen that none of you know, hyperventilating about pot smokers so they are the equivalent of a one-kid cocaine drug cartel in your naive minds, but it’s disheartening that that so many that call themselves conservatives show so much resistance to our judicial system running it’s course.

    Now, you all continue your quest to usurp the justice system in order to satisfy your emotional needs. Me? I think I’ll wait for the evidence and jury’s decision. In the meantime, I think I’ve had my quota of interfacing with enough butt ugly humans for awhile. ta ta
