According to GZ, he lost the kid and could not find him. He didn't want the police to show up at his house (GZ's) because he didn't know where the kid was and he didn't want him to know where he lived.
Then this: ""The dispatcher told me not to follow the suspect & that an officer was on the way. As I headed back to my vehicle the suspect emerged from the darkness and said, 'You got a problem?'" When Zimmerman answered "No," the suspect said, "You do now.""
That states that the kid was the aggressor and that he came out of nowhere to jump and attack George. Witness #11 heard GZ scream and yell for help.
The dispatcher obviously heard the wind sounds.
SPD: Are you following him? [2:24]
SPD: Okay. We don't need you to do that. [2:26]
SPD: All right, sir, what is your name? [2:34]
GZ: George. He ran.
At this point, Zimmerman's breathing relaxed, and the sound of wind abated.
Yep followed him for a big 10 seconds, very aggressive, stop leaving out facts bro
Damn we should be lawyers
I don't understand this logic. If the kid were trying to avoid confrontation he could have run back to where he had been staying a short distance away.
You need to disconnect the separate incidents. Let's speculate and say Zimmerman is guilty of these two other incidents you bring up. That doesn't mean he's guilty of this. Everyone deserves to be treated fairly. I have no idea if Zimmerman is guilty or innocent. I'll pay attention to the case, but in the end, it is up to the jurors to decide.
Figures the Cajun redneck thinks that Zimmerman was right to shoot an unarmed black kid, because he was "standing his ground"
Damn....your last sentence is just ignorant.
at 2:08 Zimmerman says "shit, he's runnin" then you hear him get out of his vehicle....he repeatedly states that "I've lost him", which means he was still searching for him, right?

Maybe Martin shouldn't have attacked Zimmerman, he could have just gone home and complained to his dad that some racist mexican was following him.
Links that stand your ground law is not fair
It took a Florida jury just two hours to acquit a retired US Army lieutenant colonel who invoked a controversial self-defense law to explain his decision to kill his wife’s lover.
As George Zimmermans trial begins, the stories of two very different shooters show the inequality behind the law
Ok. So then Zimmerman heads back to his truck, as in he's no longer looking for him and waiting for police to show up.
I agree. Just as Trayvon being a weedhead has nothing to do with him being murdered.
Maybe Zimmerman should have left the kid alone and all of this would have been avoided, but naw Zimmerman has to be superman and try to take the law into his own hands.
Zimmerman is Latino, you realize that right?
Zimmerman got out of his truck at 2:10....he was outside when he got off the phone with the dispatcher, more than 2 minutes later.
He is half white, and is considered white by most people just like if someone is half black and people put black on their records and not the other race.
There had been break-ins in the neighborhood. A person he did not know was loitering in the rain and looking into houses. I good neighbor would try to find out what is going on, he chased him all of 10 seconds.
This is what many have been pointing out to be a key point for the defense. If he was 60-70 yards from where he was staying, was afraid, and not the aggressor then why was he still not home 2 minutes later? Especially if he was running while Zimmerman was on the phone. Zimmerman's fat ass could probably run 60 yards in under 30 seconds.
He self-identifies as a Latino, like Obama self-identifies as an African American.
That tells me nothing as it pertains to whether or not he was looking for Martin at the time Martin attacked him.
If he was returning to his truck, he wasn't looking for Martin.
Why was Martin still not home in that 2 minutes if he didn't turn around and go after Zimmerman? 60-70 yards away is what has been stated and he had 2 minutes to travel that distance, running
It's racist to say that a Latino couldn't chase down a black teen who had a 20 second head start over 50 yards.
What leads you believe he returned to his truck?
Think about it.....if you're a 16 year old kid being followed by a strange looking bloke in a white truck....would you allow him to follow you home?
