It matters little what we think about the George Zimmerman case because that will fall in the purview of the six ladies who are listening to the testimony, mulling over the evidence, and hopefully getting any questions they might have answered.
However, there are so many “Why’s” it just seems logical to ask these “why’s; and perhaps others of you out there have some of the same questions. Or perhaps, you have your own why’s?
Why would George Zimmerman call the police if he planned to harm that young man?
Why would he give his name, location, and explain why he had called?
Why would it seem unrealistic for George to ask the young man what he was doing out in such a rainy night? Why didn’t Martin just tell him why he was just wandering around? Wasn’t George trained to help protect his neighborhood?
Why wouldn’t George have been suspicious since there had been so many robberies?
Why would people jump to conclusions about George’s statement about those (omit cuss words) always getting away? Had they made any arrest in the previous cases?
Why did the media jump on George as the racist when testimony had clearly defined the way Martin addressed him – as a blank, blank cracker?”
Why would George be waiting for the police to arrive?
Why would George have a free hand for the gun while walking around with a flashlight in his hand and a cell phone in the other?
Why did he think the young man was up to “no good?”
Why was George so severely beaten?
Why didn’t he use the gun before he sustained such injuries? Was it the boy’s race that caused him to get shot or was it his attack?
Why is it hard to believe that George fired in self-defense; because he fired at the time he was being beaten by Martin. Otherwise, how could this have happened when Martin seemingly died instantly. If George had shot him first, there would have been no injuries to his head and face.
Why are the media finding him guilty before the trial?
Why do the people on HLN get so involved and excited at these trials with all the jawing and re-enactments and their theories; and their mock juries? Don’t they realize they are playing with people’s lives? Almost all of them painted Zimmerman guilty before the jury was even selected.
Why did he wait so long before pulling the gun? Was it because Mr. Martin had him pinned down?
Why would George not have been better off without a gun? He would probably be the one dead.
Why would the young man attack him if he knew he had a gun? Was he reaching for the gun when George shot? Was there a struggle over the gun?
Why did George Zimmerman never try to get out of killing him?
Why was he so cooperative with the police?
Why didn’t the young man just run? Why didn’t he keep on running since he was so near his father’s apartment?
Why did he engage with Georgia Zimmerman? Apparently, he had to come at him face on.
Why would the State of Florida seek murder charges? What is the meaning of the “stand your ground” law?
Why would the media think George was profiling the young man because of his color when at first he could not even tell what his race was for sure according to the 911 operator.
Why would George be called a racist when most all of the young man was covered including a hoodie over his head; and at first George did not know for sure that he was black?
Why would anyone expect George to keep on sustaining such blows to his head when he had the means to protect himself?
Why would the media say he was being profiled because of his race; why not because there were so many crimes already there? Perhaps he was being profiled as an intruder/robber; and race had nothing to do with it?
Why would the ‘stand your ground law’ not be applicable to a man who is being beaten to death – head pounded on the cement?
Why the charge of second degree murder? Murder has to show many aspects that this case just does not show.
Why would George shoot him if he didn’t have to – he knew the police were on their way?
Why was George not charged with a lesser charge – even manslaughter?
Why has this become ALL about race and not about evidence or justice?
Why would George be on trial if he has no history of racism?
Why is racism a crime unless there is harm?
Why does Florida only have six jurors when most states have twelve?
Why did the media use such young photos of the victim?
Why did they try to hide the victim’s reputation?
Why did the apartment complex settle with the Martins for an estimated one million dollars for the wrongful death of their child? Wasn’t George trying to protect the residents there through the Neighborhood Watch program that had been established by the HOA?
Why will they still seek a civil suit against Zimmerman? Money?
Why does the prosecution believe that George is innocent? Did they have to bring this to trial to prevent a riot? Their own witnesses are backing George more than the victim.
Why can’t anyone see from the wounds on George’s head that he was the one attacked?
Just wondering? How many why’s. Can you come up with any more?
Why was it the family of the dead teen contacted the girlfriend on the phone and why were they allowed to coach her in what to say? It was after then that George was arrested. He had not been charged before then. Why was this not done by law enforcement? Did the attorney break the law?
Why did the father of Martin keep shaking his head when this poor girl was testifying? She seemed to be so afraid she would say the wrong thing. Apparently she did since he continually shook his head?
Why did the Defense find her with many lies? Why was she so confused about what was being asked of her, and why did she know the dates and days of weeks so clearly, and volunteered them, if she had not been coached; but could not understand so much on the stand?
Why with so little evidence, at this point in the case, can the State of Florida ever arrive at a second degree murder charge?
Why did law enforcement believe George and did not bring charges until the race card was played and the media got involved?
There are apt to be more “Why’s” in this case before it is over.
What are your whys?
