Yeah we have been battling deer all year, have fences up everywhere, another reason not to plant corn. Let me know how you make out so I can submit a claim.

Lily, please read this.
Zimmerman did not chase down Martin just to find him and shoot him. That would have been murder. Why was Martin's decision to instigate an attack overlooked in your reaction? Doesn't he share any culpability in having made that decision?
Zimmerman said when he was trying to shimmy his body over to the grass to protect it, Martin saw the gun and started to go for it.
So what if that really happened? Can you say with absolute certainty it didn't? And if it did, Trayvon had the advantage and could have easily gotten the gun away from Zimmerman.
Zimmerman getting out of his car may have been a mistake, but it was not a crime. There was no intent on his part to shoot Martin that night. He could not have known Martin was still in the area when he got out of his car to wait for the police.
So why WAS Martin still in the area? And why would Martin scream for help if his only intent was to commit murder?
If someone had come to his rescue, Martin would have been on trial for assault and battery. Would anyone have cared who Martin was then? The fact is no one would have even known his name.
Just FYI...more people are killed with fists than with rifles.
We don't KNOW if Martin "instigated" the attack you lying ol' biddy. Neither the prosecution nor the defense could prove who started the fight.

It's laughable! How can a group of old white menseriously claim racial tensions between 2 minority groups, in which they individually only lay eyes on these 2 groups passing by in a car? Talk about exploitation of a tragedy! Meanwhile, on the real side of things in America, this melting pot with potential of true greatness, we need to figure how to keep the 2nd amendment but, limit the exposure of guns in society. The fact that Zimmerman had 2 felonies taken off his record ( which would've prevented him from owning a gun) because, his daddy is a Jew ex-judge is ridiculous! It's crazy that in this country, folks care more about gun possession than, the future of our youth. Trayvonm Martin serves as a sacrificial lamb for the argument that our gun laws conflicted. The person with no criminal record was profiled as a gangsta, grown enough to go to prison for the rest of his life but, not old enough to have a gun license but, the guy whom should've never been able tohave a gun can legally own a gun, shoot & kill an unnamed teen & get away with it, it's ridiculous. Laws need to be changed or, don't cry & complain when there's uprising & anarchy!
ALL DURING OBAMAS presidency IT SUCKS he just stands by and doesnt have a clue OBAMA , he didnt change anything it got WORST, he didnt bring america together it is MORE DIVIDED NOW THAN EVER

Fair-minded people who don't use hate as a tool to wield an irrational intolerance to opposing viewpoints is all I'm looking for. Anywhere the people are still sane and strive to be civilized will do.
It used to be here. Not anymore.
Thanks to people like you, sonic.
Correct, that's why no one would mistake y'all for "fair-minded people". The right hates and disregards ANYTHING that isn't right-wing. There are actually some good outlets that are conservative but not right-wing moronic "conservative", Cato and The American Conservative for instance. You don't have to go to the swill merchants for your news, you just choose to.

Faux News likes the 'race' issue better. They think that they can stir up their viewer base more with 'race' than any other issue. Anyone want to explain why , like Hitler, FoxNews loves pushing racism .

Maybe if Martin had just thrown Skittles at Zimmerman instead of breaking his facial bones and trying to beat his head on the sidewalk he'd be happily skipping school and smoking pot right now.

Or perhaps getting his life together. That's the tragedy. He should have thrown the Skittles.

This bizarre fixation you have with silencing the opposition is most concerning.
You do know what happens when the few elite decide what the masses can hear?
If the liberal media were doing its job, Fox would not be such a threat to the underpinnings of overthrowing democracy to replace it with a one-party government-controlled welfare state.
Wise up. You're on the wrong side of the fence. And the wrong side of history. It will not be kind to you.
i have no need to silence those who silence themselves.

which was my original point.

and how you can think that a network that only has 3 million total viewers can effectively be a 'threat' to anyone is a great mystery to all of us who are still laughing about a right wing Canadian politician attempting to try to get a law repealed so FOX can be allowed to tell lies about left wing Canadian politicians.

though on my part, laughing might be an understatement.

No, but if Zimmerman had not had protection, Martin's fists could have easily finished the job. Unless, of course, he only meant to beat Zimmerman's head on the sidewalk until he yelled "uncle".
