Since you don't know because, you've never been stalked, followed, & chased. Chances are Trayvon stopped & stood his ground because, running makes you tired &, one can defend himself when tired. Like I've said, there's going to be alot of non criminal offenses now. You've just told criminals that, it's legal to stalk, follow, & case houses in broad daylight. After all, it's not a crime right? The thought that someone can cause another to rightfully fear for ones life, then kill said person &, claim you fear for your life is ridiculous! & you should be ashamed for being grown & thinking that way. Cool with me tho, I know how to play that game too!

"There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs - partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs."... Quote: Former Slave Booker T. Washington 1911..

And.. One Hundred years later?..

Still... NO! Hope and NO! Change...

i agree with the opinion.

and maybe you can explain to us why some conservatives seem to be on an 'We're not racist, everyone else is!' kick?

kinda like how every bad thing that happened during Bush has somehow become the fault of democrats? even the Iraq 'war', which no one is buying beyond 3 million FOXbots.

The audacity of the conservative hypocrisy can at times leave you speechless. The fact that they think everyone else is as ignorant as they are once again speaks to the failure of natural selection.

You really are clueless...
“These documents detail the extraordinary intervention by the Justice Department in the pressure campaign leading to the prosecution of George Zimmerman,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.“My guess is that most Americans would rightly object to taxpayers paying government employees to help organize racially-charged demonstrations.”
Moron.
First, judicizal watch is a biased organization. I noticed that they only released the expense reports, and not where and on what the money was spent on. One can only wonder why they didn't release that information.

What was the technical assistance?
Who received it?

Where does it say the money was spent on organizing the demonstrators?
Could it had been spent on organizing the local police, fire department and other gov't services to response to the demonstrations?

We've already seen what happens when local authorities aren't prepared for massive demonstrations, be it the Rodney Kig verdict riots or the University of Michigan winning a championship riots.

BTW: "These documents detail the extraordinary intervention by the Justice Department in the pressure campaign leading to the prosecution of George Zimmerman,” this is the opinion Tom Fitton, not a statement of fact, learn the difference

FBI report: No evidence George Zimmerman is racist

Federal civil-rights investigators interviewed dozens of George Zimmerman's friends, neighbors and co-workers, and no one said he was a racist, records released Thursday show.

FBI agents spread out across the state, talking to three dozen people, including gun-shop employees, Zimmerman's ex-fiancée and the Sanford police detective who led the investigation into the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black 17-year-old.

I'll grant you they went more than a little overboard in the arrest, but rodney king deserved to be beaten down just for using his vehicle as a deadly weapon and threatening many innocent people's lives.
I also saw the shooting of the dog, and that officer was a puscee bitch phag for opening fire. However, the main cause of that whole problem was the the loser, rabble-rousing negro owner of the dog. He should be horsewhipped in the street for causing the death of that poor pup (and he is as useless a POS as rodney king was).....:-)
we must have saw different videos. In the one I saw, the man arrested was simply asking why in a predominately black neighbor hood, there were no black officers present. He was video taping the event, which BTW is completely legal. I don't know what the police said to him, but he put his dog in the car, then put his hands behind his head and turned around.

What did he do to warrent an arrest? I didn't see any action that looked illegal. The police are servants of the public, the man arrested is part of the public. Techically speaking, the police work for him. If he had a question, they should answer it. However, all too often, the police seem to forget who they work for.

I'm going to be in Chicago next month and, believe me, I won't be doing any walking in the west and south sides of the city.
You can walk any where in a burka-no one wants to touch them. Besides every area of Chicago has experienced murders, it isn't just the west or the sout side, you are an idiot if you think it is.

just bbecasue people say Zimmerman isn't a racists, doesn't mean he isn't prejudice.

My guess is that Trayvon's race had little to do with Zimmerman's actions. Rather it was Trayvon's age and appearance that led to the confrontation. The hoodie and hip-hop style clothing.

Fact is Martin was not engaged in any illegal activity. Zimmerman even made a remark about punks getting away with things. Martin got killed not for engaging in any illegal activity but for looking suspicious.

From Martin's point of view, this overweight man is following him in a car, then he gets out of the car and starts following him on foot. We don't know what transpired, we do know Zimmerman's state of mind though as witnessed in the 911 call.
Zimmerman took the law into his own hands.
At the time of the shooting, could immerman have been fearful of his life? Yes.
But who initiated the attack? We don't know
Was Trayvon engaged in any illegal activity? No
We do know that if Zimmerman had not gone all vigilantee, Trayvon would still be alive.
You can't start a fight and then claim self-defense when you start losing.

Florida State attorney's office employee has been fired after testifying about concerns that prosecutors didn't turn over photos and text messages from Trayvon Martin's cellphone to the defense in George Zimmerman's murder case.

On the same day attorneys finished their closing arguments in that nationally watched trial, a state attorney investigator went to Ben Kruidbos’ home about 7:30 a.m. to hand-deliver a letter stating Kruidbos “can never again be trusted to step foot in this office.”
