    That's as irrelevant as Zimmerman's entire medical history.

    Ummm maybe because he may have been written up for starting fights? [face_dunno] sent to the principals office? Maybe they tried to find police records, didn't find any and now hope to look at his grades looking for bad grades?

    This has nothing to do with the situation and is low and dirty.

    I'd assume they're looking for possible violent tendencies.

    If he has a history of starting fights at school, that's relevant - but his grades aren't.

    So they should hand over Zimmerman's police records to the Martin's lawyer. Or the medical records, fair fair yeah know

    I was surprised that the school records were released as I don't see what that has to do with the murder of an innocent teenager. Zimmerman's lawyers are probably looking for suspensions for starting fights, smoking pot, etc.

    You know Zimmerman has a history of chasing people down. I say his police records are more relevant to the case then the medical records. Though he has a history of getting into fights too.

    I'm sure the prosecutors will have all those files/records on Zimmerman. And I'd think his getting into fights would be very relevant if I were on the jury.

    With that word choice, I can see why you'd be surprised. That really reads with only one conclusion possible in mind.

    Lowie,

    I don't believe that the school records are relevant because Zimmerman had no way of knowing the age of the person he was following until just before the altercation happened.

    Thats what he said but if you listen to the 911 one recording, the operator asked for an approximate age and he answered it being a teen. He knew but prefers to be in denial about the age by saying he didn't know.

    He said "late teens" as I recall - I don't think Zimmerman thought he was going after a 14 year old, just to be clear. Very reasonable chance that he could be 17, 18, or 19 and done with school.

    Martin was 17 so late teens is accurate.

    Because Trayvon Martin was black and Howard Zimmerman isn't.

    More like this was a continuation of the the thread that was started on the Temp boards (I want to say it was started by @Souderwan, but I can't remember), and I made a thread on the permanent boards since there was new info.

    Yeah, but race doesn't matter.

    To beat the rush when Zimmerman is acquitted and the rioting starts?

    (Sorry, feeling a bit cynical this morning)

    I have a feeling we won't stop until after the Judge makes his decision

    Witness accounts support that - in his youth - Trayvon Martin would frequently incinerate ants using the suns rays focused through a magnifying glass. When presented with this evidence, the court should see that Trayvon Martin is of poor moral character and, beyond any reason of a doubt, was the aggressor in the incidents leading up to his death.

    Really? My brother did the same thing; except that he found that gasoline poured on the anthill worked better than a magnifying glass. Poor moral character indeed.
