Very Interesting. This is the history of our nation. Hopefully there will be justice severed at the federal level.

Are people just forgetting that GZ lived in a gated community where there had been a rash of recent robberies? So why was there someone who didn't live there trolling about a gated community unless he was looking for TROUBLE!? There is no evidence of who confronted who. If I were GZ I would have followed him till he left the gated community or I found out what he was up to. No one has bothered to think what Trayvon was doing somewhere he shouldn't have been!!!!!
You can't speak on what DID or DID not happen because neither were you there as well as other people weren't. So how can you choose a side? Zimmerman FOLLOWED him for one. If someone followed you while you were minding your own business what would you do? And secondly, Trayvon had business being there because someone he was staying with at the time lived there, which is where he was walking back to.

Did anyone read the full article?

It states this at the end:

"The NAACP has a petition to have a civil rights charge brought against Mr. Zimmerman. This is the same route that eventually brought Rodney King some justice. Please consider signing this if you wish to see justice for Trayvon Martin. petition link

edit: so sorry everyone - I was fooled too! I dearly wanted it to be true. Thanks to the commenters who pointed it out. The petition though, is *REAL* and please SIGN thank you!"

Do you think George W. Bush would have filed the Federal Charges??? Justice was not severed at the state level so hopefully something is accomplished at the federal level. It is not disrespectful to the Martin family who has not seen any justice. This child lost his life for goodness sakes.
I don't know if he would or not but I would hope he wouldn't cause it is not his job. Eric Holder is in charge and this is a matter for the justice dept. if Holder can't handle this on his own than he shoulda never been appointed to that position. The reason I say it's disrespectful is that there have been 100's if not 1,000's of children killed since Obama has taken office and what has he done what has he said about them? The answer is nothing because they were not main stream cases worthy of his attention? Therefore he wouldn't get any of his agenda across cause we wouldn't know of any of those cases. That is disrespectful to the Martin family! That he would take their sons death and use it for his own platform. There is only two reasons Obama has not attached his name to the other cases. 1. Those cases in which children were killed black and white where there killers were not charged or ever caught aren't important to pres Obama ( which I hope is not the case) 2. The other cases weren't main stream media where we all have heard of and know of like this one where Obama can attach his name and claim some type of public civil service. Should other families sitting at home right now be thinking "pres Obama why did you not get involved in my child's death? Why did you not bring my child's case to the main stream media this case Is already main stream". Are those children any less important? So what message does Obama involving himself now say to those families? I'm not saying that the justice department shouldn't get involved I do not know enough about the law to comment on that. But I do know that the commander in chief of the United States of America should not be getting involved in a situation where it his not his job! Propaganda 101. And yes that is disrespectful to the Martin family and every family that has lost a child in this way!

This was not a case of did he kill him or not it was a case of did he kill in self defense. Those other cases have nothing to do with this one it would be the same as me saying OJ killed his ex-wife --not guilty

You can find other cases from both sides where white people have gotton away with crimes and black people have gotton away with crimes. Those cases have nothing to do with this case. How can you even compare those I don't remember anything about a mother an her baby or pit bulls in this case

Your right we don't know 100% who confronted who. But we do know that they both had cell phones. And we do know that one of them called the police and gave his name and location and what he was observing those are not usually the actions of someone who is about to commit a felony to give that type of info. At the very least do we agree that z did not set out to kill in any way T? Now the very little evidence that there is does agree with z story. Doesn't make the fact the he took a life ok but does show that he was legitimately trying to find out what T was up to and not that he set out to kill. And the pictures of his face and head also agree with his story. I am not a lawyer in anyway and the only info I know is what was displayed in court and after seeing that it would cause me to believe in my opinion that T was the aggressor
You're still missing the point, he should have NEVER taken matters into his own hands. Trayvon was simply minding his business and GZ should have been doing the same.

This was not a case about whether or not T had the right to be there or not nor a case about Z following him was right or wrong. All those things we know. It was a case about after there was a confrontation regardless of who started it was there a reasonable intention of using self defense with deadly force.

That comment isn't about race. It's about Casey Anthony and George Zimmerman getting away with murder. And Michael Vick goes to jail for killing a dog. If I would have included OJ Simpson. I doubt that you would have responded.

Casey Anthony killed her kid = Not Guilty

George Zimmerman Kills a teenager = Not Guilty

OJ Simpson = Not Guilty

Michael Vick Killed a dog = GUILTY!!!

It's simple as this George Zimmerman followed a young boy, started a confrontation that he was not ready for, and could not take his ass whopping like a man. So he took a life. Only a punk brings a gun to a fist fight. Where do we draw the line for self defense? Trayvon was unarmed, there was no reason for him to shoot.

I understand the role of the Department of Justice. Yes I understand that there are more high profile cases than others. It's all been that way. This is not an Obama Bashing Thread. Most of us are focused on getting some form of justice for the Martin family which was not accomplished at the state level. I see ZERO disrespect from our Commander and Chief.

I hope the justice dept does a thorough investigation and not a "just to keep everyone calm" superficial waste of time.
