why
because he was being followed by HİM and nobody still doesnt know what really happened between them

is it important to refer to him as hispanic ?

Many people still believe Zimmerman was racist and he did not kill a "child" but used deadly force to stop someone old enough to enlist in the marines from violently assaulting him.

if there is reliable witness why did the trial last long ?
What do you mean? The trial lasted for 20 days. That's not a long time as far as trials go. And actually, Medusa, the more reliable witnesses there are testifying, the longer a trial will last.

No, Z killed in self defense a 2 bit criminal ....justifiable homicide

It also sends a message to all....be armed and keep your gear close to protect yourself and know that it may be you and only you who will be there to protect your loved ones and others around you...precisely against 2 bit criminals

Medusa, so I take it you failed to research any of the facts relating to the case before injecting your emotional opinion based on bogus talking points?

Why do you keep lying? He did not simply follow a "child" and "kill him".

Trayvon was not a "child" but 17 years old, a young adult old enough to enlist in the marines. Trayvon was on his third suspension from school, had a history of drug use and an obsession with fighting.

Zimmerman's injuries and eyewitness testimony corroborate that George was being violently assaulted when he shot Trayvon in self defense.

Assaulting someone is criminal, Medusa. And "listening to your heart" is one of the problems with people who are talking about this case. It's not about feelings - it's about the law.

So you make judgements based on emotion and not facts? No "criminal" is considered one before they are held accountable for their behavior.

and nobody saw exactly what happened between them!

he was killed!!!!!!!

Actually an eyewitness saw Trayvon violently beating Zimmerman, "MMA-Style",

Witness: Trayvon Martin Attacked George Zimmerman 'MMA Style' (Breitbart, May 18, 2012)

I am well aware Trayvon was killed but he made the poor judgement to violently assault an armed man.

LAW doesnt always provide justice! as we all see ,he hadnt commited any crime untill he was followed ,l suggest you listen to your heart too

It is not illegal to follow someone nor does it give you a legal right to violently assault a person you believe is following you. Trayvon did commit a crime when he violently assaulted Zimmerman.

Right he killed a 161lb., 6 foot teenager who attacked him bent on killing him. It's called self defense.
