When George Zimmerman left his home armed on the night of the Trayvon Martin shooting... was he on neighborhood "watch" observing only suspicious conduct or on George Zimmerman's "patrol"... ready to track a suspect, interrogate the suspect and apprehend him if necessary? What was his State of Mind when he left his home? ARMED
...neither... Zimmerman got out of his car to confront Trayvon, however, at that point, he should have been double---tripple sure that Trayvon was armed and dangerous before taking out his gun and shooting him. He took out his gun and shot and killed an individual who was not armed, on the premise that he was armed....
My guess is he had it in his mind he was going to shoot someone sooner or later, if only the opportunity were to present itself, although not completely conscious. The gun became who he was.
I would imagine more of a patrol because it is a choice to leave home armed even when it was clearly written and said that they were to be unarmed watchmen and women. Having a gun ups the ante and in this case someone died as a result of his choices, not their own.
Stay with me on George Zimmerman's State of Mind...please. What was his intent?
Who knows what his intent was? We werent there, reading his mind.
Was he on "watch" or "patrol" in your opinion? Make a call!
So you responded to this thread for nothing?
Ditto!... I don't think anyone will ever know what was going on in this idiot's mind. Bottom line he killed Trayvon, and it seems as if the vote is unanimous, because, for the first time ever I see both right/left agreeing that Zimmerman was guilty of the crime.

If Martin's hand was covering Zimmerman's mouth as he claims, wouldn't the screams have sounded muffled? Zimmerman's DNA wasn't found on Martin's hands so was it Zimmerman or Martin screaming?

Being caught up in the debate, I slept on it and upon awakening realized that I, too, have allowed myself to caught in the hysteria. When I or anyone allows this to overwhelm it shortcircuits one's reasoning ability. 1. We are all guilty of prejudice and pre-conceived attitudes. We get them...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NBC_NewsThis is really hard to believe. A major news network would do something like this? Does anyone know if it's true that NBC did this?

Why Did Some people See George Zimmerman As The Victim And Trayvon Martin As The Aggressor?Why did they believe and not question his account of how their confrontation started?
