    In medical records referred to in court today, Zimmerman is listed as "white."

    Why didn't his lawyer rise and say, "I object"?"

    I would advise people to not get sucked in to the outside tensions and just let it all play out and let justice takes it's course. How people will conduct themselves afterword will be viewed by all to see.

    More like Jeantal believes that it's acceptable to be black and racist but nobody else has that right. If you're black, then you're a victim and any behavior is acceptable.

    Trust me, I've seen the mentality in my home town for decades.

    Well said WW.

    One thing Martin Luther King nailed shut, is the advice that we should all judge one another by the content of each man's character.

    Until minorities become as willing to do that as the majority - whatever that stripe may be - we will still have a double standard, the Civil Rights Industry, and obvious instances of applied hypocrisy.

    Even the current media hype for this case in mind blowing. It's as if nothing else is happening in the country. It's all MSNBC and CNN are talking about as I type.

    given the amount of attention on Too Hot, you really think the coverage is unwarranted?

    These threats of killing and rioting speak very loud about the mentality of the black community. They and the mooslums at least have that in common.

    Discussion at dinner last night. Trayvon was a dope smoking thug. Kicked out of school for smoking pot...jury will not hear this. Zimmerman is a cop wannabe who should not have gotten out of his truck. He tried to be the big shot. Trayvon likely jumped him not knowing he had a gun...maybe he was high. Zimmerman pulls his gun and shoots him.

    Trayvon dead. Zimmerman guilty of something. Not second degree but likely manslaughter or discharging a firearm within city limits...something.

    Not the same, but I've explained it already enough times.

    Yet some would prefer to wait until the police to arrive to do the paperwork on their murder as them guns are loud.

    The jury also isn't learning Zimmerman was on anti-anxiety, anti-depressant meds, and Adderall. This info was released in his medical report and available on abc news site. So why the persistence that Martin was some drug smoking thug all while ignoring Zimmerman's issues and significant list of medications?

    Come on, I know several people on anti depressants etc. You would never know by the way they act which indicates the meds are working. One other thing, last time I checked prescription drugs were legal, pot not so much which means Martin is a lawbreaker GZ law abider.

    If they raise the pot smoking, objectively it should be considered supportive of the prosecution's case.

    Pot smokers are probably the least violent people on the planet... short of people in comas.

    Only a tiny trace of pot was found in Martin's blood....Zimmerman's blood was never checked so it would be hard to determine what his blood levels were.

    Zimmerman wasn't always a law bidding citizen and we don't know if he was suffering from side effects such as paranoia, increased aggression or agitation from his RX meds.

    It would be nice if it was as black and white as you state but it's not and the jury won't be privy to that information.

    Perhaps, but they can also be quite paranoid!

    Paranoia would never lead one to be violent now would it?

    I admit I've seen where paranoia is a claimed side affect for some people. Anecdotally, there is probably a reason for that, but it wouldn't surprise if that's all just b.s. from the "reefer madness" propaganda.

    I've been around a pretty good number of people that have smoked. Smoked a little when I was younger. Never experienced or saw that behavior in anyone.... except maybe when seeing police around. But then it's not exactly paranoia is it?

    Conversely, people get nasty or otherwise out of control when they drink. On a regular basis.

    I don't know anything about the effects of the drugs prescribed for GZ. But would be surprised if their effects aren't more significant than marijuana. And probably the effects of coming off them as well.

    The idea that potheads are thugs is just entirely misplaced. You are far safer around potheads than around people drinking. Your brownies might not be, but you are.
