I meant this IS the Trayvon we've seen all over the news, internet and in the court case right?
No, I hear ya, Chuck. We only ever saw that black-and-white hoodie pic of Trayvon. The difference between the various pics of Trayvon is very small when compared to the before/afters of George.

The police disagree with you, the detective who interviewed Z said he believed he was telling the truth unless he was a pathological liar.

Actually, his family said he put on all the weight from being in home detention and not getting out to exercise. But maybe they were lying although why on earth they would about such a thing as his weight is beyond me.

Your argument about making him look "respectable" and "decent" as opposed to that "thug kid" holds no water since from day one the pictures released of M were basically his 12-year-old pictures. The AP is still using them.



The prosecution withheld discovery pictures from the defense of M smoking weed and brandishing a gun.

I saw the article. Thought to myself "Now he's a saint!" and laughed. I switched over and posted it here. I find humor in a lot of things others might not find funny.

But it being something against Zimmerman or implying that he did wrong by that never crossed my mind.

Where are you getting that? I thought the initial cops and the lead investigator that night, Chris Serino, wanted to charge Zimmerman. The prosecutor (who did not respond to the crime scene or the police dept) denied their request. The police chief was Zimmerman's big backer.

btw, Did you know that Zimmerman's dad is a retired judge? And there is pics of Zimmerman walking around the police dept unattended before. Just like he was at home there. He was no stranger to these guys.

Zimmerman was also charged before with resisting arrest and battery of a cop. Those charges were dropped.

He has also been accused of domestic violence. Nothing came of that but a protection order from a judge.

There were also reports that people from that community had complained to the police dept and to the neighborhood watch about Zimmerman being too aggressive and one man complained that he (Z) followed him home once. (Although, surely if this were true the prosecution would have brought that out.)

I apologize, Neez. I'm too accustomed to political snark on other sites.

That's the problem with "discussing" on the laptop, it's tough to get a sense of the feelings attached to a comment.

Neez, I am "getting that" from the same place all my comments are from - trial testimony.

Quote:
Officer Chris Serino was a prosecution witness but may have helped the defense when he described how Zimmerman, purposely tricked into thinking there was video of the clash, said he had been hoping someone taped it.

“He’s either telling the truth or he’s a pathological liar,” Serino said.

He then added under further questioning that he believed Zimmerman.

The rest of your comments about Z had nothing to do with the trial. Ditto M's pot smoking, gun-brandishing photos, fighting, trouble at school and thefts.

No need to apologize. Most people on here think I'm pissed or at the very least very passionate when I debate something. I try not to get too worked up over this stuff. And definitely not to take it personally. That is why I posted that article and the saint comment. I really needed a laugh out of something in all this. lol
