He said that he thought he was on drugs, that he looked suspicious, and that he may be black. Everything that happened before the assault was neither here nor there and therefore has little effect on the possible charge Zimmerman could receive.
His family attorney and the media are beating this drum because they really don't have a chinaman's chance with a 1st or 2nd degree murder charge, so they are pushing for manslaughter/hate crime. If Zimmerman isn't charged with a crime to begin with then there can't be a hate crime charge.
This entire case doesn't hinge on whether he racially profiled Martin or not, and it really doesn't have a big effect on the initial charge. Going against a 911 operator's advise (not command) isn't against the law either. Look at the Joe Horn case back in 2007, he was told 12 times not to go outside and he was never charged. People are hung up on the possible racial slur because they have been conditioned to think that being racist is against the law. Actually you could argue that that idea or pushing tolerance on the country is fascist and it goes against your rights as a US citizen.
Actually, I'm not hung up on the race thing at all, I was just asking a question, because I've repeatedly heard that he used racial slurs.
Plus, you said that his comments were irrelevant, but then you spent the next paragraph talking about his comments on the 911 call, and the racial aspect of them. The media has lied about the racial aspect of this, and there really ISNT a racial aspect to it. It had nothing to do with race, but the media has tried to make it all about race.
So the whole point of asking about the supposed racial slurs, was so that I, and others can disprove the race baiting line of the mainstream media. That isnt the crux of the case, but to most African Americans and liberals, thats the most important aspect of the case, as to them its all about race. So why not disprove it, and try to destroy the media's credibility? Not just here, as they dont have credibility here, but elsewhere.....
But also, I had not heard the whole 911 tape, so I didnt know what was said, and I was interested in knowing if the story was true or not.
But he was apparently arrested today.
We want the truth about Benghazi, not a cover-up!
