Was walking through the apartment complex a shortcut to his father's girlfriend's house?
Even if it was, why didn't he walk with a sense of purpose and get where he was going without drawing attention to himself?
If you saw a young man in your complex at night in the rain who looked like he didn't belong there or didn't seem to have a sense of purpose for being there after multiple burglaries, would you think it suspicious?
Just curious what your answers would be.
Tell me... how did you identify him as a 'resident?'

If I thought it suspicious, I would call the police and let them do their job.

I agree, there is no incentive for people to look for work. As long as these socialist policies are in place, most working Americans will continue to struggle meeting their day to day needs, while freeloaders just hang on for the ride . And don't even get me started on Obamacare! Don't forget, this Marxist is also giving out free phones and free birth-control like its going out of style!
You hit all the right buttons. And I agree.

Why didn't Martin leave? Once he left the confines of the complex, he would been any person on the sidewalk going somewhere.

Martin was obviously agitated Zimmerman thought he looked suspicious in the first place and decided to act out his anger.

I'd do what you would've done. But Zimmerman had a perfect right to walk around his neighborhood and have a means to protect himself in the event of danger.

What if Trayvon hadn't attacked Zimmerman and simply explained his reason for being there?

That scenario didn't happen so we'll never know if Zimmerman would have gotten back in his car and Trayvon would have gone back home.

But Trayvon instigated an altercation instead. That's what we do know and, unfortunately, it simply can't be ignored.

Again, the liberal media deliberately made this a racially charged case. It served this administration's agenda of perpetuating racial divide and anti-gun laws.

It isn't an accident the whole country is talking about this case and racial tensions are building. This is what the liberals on Capital Hill live for.

It's also a very good distraction to keep us talking about anything but Benghazi, the IRS and the DOJ.

You have NO proof definitively WHO started the attack, other than the statements made by someone with a criminal record, and a verified liar.
Finally, Trayvons parents, Black ministers, Al Sharpton have ALL denounced violence following the jury's decision.

The police eventually agreed to meet Zimmerman in the part of the complex where the attack took place.
But why didn't Trayvon keep walking and go home?
Wish someone could answer that.
How do you know Trayvon started anything?
Who was persuing who?
Who demonstrated anger on the 911 call?
Who has been arrested for assaulting an officer?
For domestic battery?
Those are facts.
What you present are not.

San Diego Mayor Bob Filner released a statement on Thursday afternoon apologizing to city residents, hours after he was accused of sexually harassing numerous female employees.
"I begin today by apologizing to you. I have diminished the office to which you elected me. I have reached into my heart and soul and realize I must and will change my behavior," he said in the DVD.
Earlier Thursday, three high-profile San Diegans described sexual harassment allegations involving “numerous” female employees of Mayor Bob Filner who were subjected to “unfortunate and reprehensible circumstances” but refused to reveal victim identities or details of the alleged behavior.
Filner continued, "As someone who has spent a lifetime fighting for equality for all people, I am embarrassed to admit that I have failed to fully respect the women who work for me and with me, and that at times I have intimidated them.
"I am also humbled to admit that I need help. I have begun to work with professionals to make changes in my behavior and approach. In addition, my staff and I will participate in sexual harassment training provided by the city.
"Please know that I fully understand that only I am the one who can make these changes. If my behavior doesn't change I cannot succeed in leading our city.
"In the next few days, I will be reaching out to those who now work to those who now work in the Mayor's Office or have previously worked for me - both men and women - to personally apologize for my behavior."
Filner then said that residents have every right to be disappointed in him.
"I only ask that you give me an opportunity to prove I am capable of change, so that the vision I have for our city’s future can be realized," he said.
The attorney representing the women who claim Filner sexually harrassed them said he will not comment until Friday, saying he wants to speak with clients first and find out if they are satisfied with this apology.

thou there is a difference between the Conservative and Neo Conservative but McCain and the Others are Neo Conservatives or RINO which is the new name given for the Neo Conservatives who are actually Pseudo Liberals within the Republican Party which is what Mitt Romney was and his Father is what I would call at the time a Rockefeller Republican.

Stop the racial dog howling and look at the FBI statistics instead.

If you don't like this link then look elsewhere. The data is the same all over.

The Examiner: http://tinyurl.com/7p5veh3

Examples:

"Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery."

"Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery."

"The best indicator of violent crime levels in an area is the percent of the population that is black and Hispanic."

"Forty-five percent of black crime is against whites, 43 against other blacks, and 10 percent against Hispanic."

These are Federal Statistics and not something made up by Rush Limbaugh.

Progressives and Racist black organizations have spent decades trying to find excuses for these statistics. They are still trying to day with Affirmative Action in place for 50 years, with rising black incomes and still they can't come up with an excuse for why Trayvon can't live peacefully with his fellow man.

The black community is in full denial mode and refuses to stop blaming the creepy-ass cracka's for the absence of family morality and decency within their communities.

Trayvon was just another one headed for prison, jail or the graveyard but the Jesse Sharptons and the Magic Negro want to blame someone else.

Someone else is fed up with the racist lying and finger pointing and the Zimmerman case is just the most recent example of it.

Bite the bullet and grow up.
