Quote:
The only minority on the all-female jury in the Trayvon Martin case says George Zimmerman “got away with murder” when he fatally shot the black 17-year-old — the announcement "devastated" Martin’s mother.

“For myself, he’s guilty because the evidence shows he’s guilty," the juror said...

“George Zimmerman got away with murder,” the panelist said. “But you can’t get away from God. And at the end of the day, [Zimmerman is] going to have a lot of questions and answers he has to deal with.”...

Maddy said that when the jury, which included five mothers, began deliberations, she was ready to convict Zimmerman of second-degree murder, which could have put him behind bars for life. “I was the juror that was going to give them the hung jury,” she insisted. “I fought to the end.”

He was brutally beaten by Martin. He saved his own life with his gun, which is what guns are for.

He was hit hard enough to knocked him to the ground so I guess Trayvon was correct he is indeed good at fighting.

@BillRM,
a successful punch to the nose usually knocks a person down, billy.

that is not the same as brutally beaten no matter how much my statement gets voted down by fearful gun supporters...

Bullshit it was one hell of a punch to be able to do that.

In any case it is clear who the attacker happen to had been and who the victim of the attack happen to had been.

Once again...

Zimmerman made one huge mistake, basically a failure of street smarts, by putting his left hand in a pocket for a cell phone with an adversary standing two or three feet away. You block or parry a right with your left hand; the hand in the pocket left him totally defenseless. Martin instantly threw the hardest straight/overhand right he could throw and landed it flush on Zimmerman's nose, breaking his nose and flattening him.

He (Martin) at that point had a final chance to just walk away but, instead, pounced on top of him and tried to literally beat him to death with MMA-style ground/pound tactics, leaving Zimmerman with no options other than to shoot.

The kid was being raised to be a hoodlum and he died doing hoodlum ****. Nobody, least of all his parents, should be shocked or dismayed.

Another good example of a straight/overhand right landing cleanly (Marciano/Walcott, round 13):

It looks worse than that to me in the photos. It wasn't a single punch followed by nothing, which probably would have earned Martin a year in jail or something. From what I understand, Martin was on top of him and still beating him when Zimmerman finally saved himself.

When you say, "gun supporters," I presume that means that you are an opponent of the very existence of the 2nd Amendment?

Hell the gentleman had seems to support death threats against Zimmerman with the comment "he made his own bed" and will not even state that the deaths threats against other people such as his family and his lawyers and the jury is wrong and should be punished.

So he is way beyond second amendment issues.

He does not seems to honor the jury system and support vendettas when verdicts are not to his liking.

Maybe you need to take another look at the photos.

These were taken the night of the shooting....

Where do you see evidence of a "beating"? Zimmerman doesn't even need a bandaid--he just needs the streaks of dried blood, from the two tiny scrapes on the back of his head, wiped off. No swellings, no bruisings, no signs of any serious injury. no signs of having been "beaten" or punched up.

Martin never got in more than one punch--and that one was likely defensive--before Zimmerman shot him.

If Zimmerman suffered a subdural hematoma as a result of the "kid' pounding Zimmerman's head against the payment, a bandaid would be a worthless method of treatment.

Only time will tell, the extent of skull/brain damage the "kid" inflicted on Zimmerman , by pounding his head against the concrete sidewalk.

@Miller,
Oh please, if he had a subdural hematoma it would have been evident by now.

Zimmerman has remained asymptomatic, and he never received, or sought, any further treatment for the very minor injuries he received that night.

The photos of his head show no evidence of any repeated "pounding"--no bruises, swellings, goose-eggs, etc.

The physician's asst. in his own doctor's office, who he saw right after the shooting (so he could get medical clearance to return to work) testified at trial that his injuries were "minor".

Some hematomas don't elict signs of their presence for some time.

By the way, don't say "oh please" to me, while you're intent on banging your drum, nonstop, against Zimmerman.

@Miller,
How long ago did Mr. Zimmerman suffer this possible subdural haematoma?

Really.

The PA, after an extremely limited medical education, still isn't qualified to be either a neurologist (MD), or even a neuroscientist ( MD, PhD).

Why do you ask? Are you now interested in the neuroscience of brain injury?
