    Back in post #207, there is a video... we have Martin returning from the store with a specific drink and specific candy...

    What the media did not tell folks was: These two specific items are two of three items necessary to make a 'recreational' drug... one that accelerates anger and paranoia.

    Wonder what Martin was up to that night?

    Yep, I read that too G. I believe they mix it with robatussen...or something like that.

    I suspect that stat will be carefully guarded... racist statistic you know...

The chain of events after that will always be second guessed.
    Martin was only out of Zimmerman's view for a few minutes. I doubt Martin would take those two minutes to case a house knowing he was being followed.

    As for Zimmerman not knowing Martin, heck, Zimmerman didn't even know the names of his streets. That's no reason to follow someone anyway. And if ethnicity plays no part in the profiling, what aspects of Martin did stand out to Zimmerman? Him stopping and pausing while on the phone? The hoodie?

    I think we should get real here. Zimmerman most likely thought it was the Blacks that were doing the burglaries. Martin just might have been one of those burglars. But Zimmerman should have waited until he had good probable cause like the cops do before opening profiling Martin.

    Profiling...yet another liberal word used to deflect the truth.

    If blacks are committing the crimes in a given area, one does not look for an Asian.

    Exactly! Zimmerman knew the statistical probability that Blacks were most likely committing the burglaries. That's why he followed Martin IMO. Call it right or wrong. I call it statically correct profiling. But it is political suicide to say Martin caught your eye because he was Black. And those that say it is not about race are not taking into account the stats and our knowledge and response to those stats.

    Talk about reaching for straws...here's a real shot of reality; IT IS THE CODEIN IN PRESCRIPTION COUGH SYRUP THAT GET'S PEOPLE HIGH, NOT SKITTLES, JOLLY RANCHERS, 7-UP or WATERMELLON FLAVORED FRUIT DRINK!

    What is Purple Drank?
    Purple drank is a mixture of a few ounces of promethazine/codeine prescription cough syrup and 8 ounces or more of a lemon-lime soda like Sprite, Sierra Mist or 7Up. The purple comes from the syrup dye. Often, Jolly Ranchers or S-K-I-T-T-L-E-S are added for flavor.
    These people making excuses for Zimmerman have gone beyond whack!

    Pretty pathetic they can't even spell the name of the person they are supposed to be so concerned about. Then again, most of these rally's are organized by leftist groups looking for just another way to beat down the U.S. by attacking the U.S. Constitution.

    I hear that Mars candy company, the maker of Skittles, is also looking for someone to sue over implementing Skittles in a homocide....right after the demand for Skittles starts to slow back down after a major increase because of this case.

    Wow he appears to be involved in some “deep” intellectual thought there. Just can’t imagine what the IQ level is here. Just saying. Thank you, thank you very much

    Well its good to know that at least some watched that excellent video all the way through, for its important to the discussion even though the court did not allow it to be known to the jury, but at least the jury understood the law, and did the right thing, even if some didn't agree with the law as is.
