Outstanding photography by Mike Haskey as always.
This could have been used as a great opportunity to educate people about the dangers of resorting to violence in this day and age.
From what I heard, no mention was given to the fact that Trayvon was beating Zimmerman, that fact seems to have disappeared from the public protests and discourse.
That fact alone got Trayvon killed. Had Trayvon not attacked Zimmerman and Zimmerman shot Trayvon the trial would have been very different.
I always hope people have the best intentions in their heart but this is taking a bad turn, especially with our so-called president weighing in.
Why is racism being injected into a case that clearly wasn't motivated by racism.
Look at the facts of the case people.

This whole affair was manufactured by the inaccurate media and sustained by the race trade of Jackson, Sharpton, NAACP and new to the bunch, Obama.

Watch and learn, why are you so easily manipulated?
The facts of the case are plain.
There will NEVER be a Civil Rights charge, NEVER.

Do you know how ridiculous you are???

NBC is very close to violating Georges Rights,...

not the first time they flat out Lied,

Dateline NBC aired an investigative report on Tuesday, November 17, 1992, titled “Waiting to Explode”. The 60-minute program was about General Motors' Rounded-Line Chevrolet C/K-Series pickup trucks allegedly exploding upon impact during accidents due to the poor design of fuel tanks. Dateline's film showed a sample of a low speed accident with the fuel tank exploding.

In reality, Dateline NBC producers had rigged the truck’s fuel tank with remotely controlled model rocket engines to initiate the explosion.

The program did not disclose the fact that the accident was staged. GM hired Failure Analysis Associates (FaAA, now Exponent) whose investigators studied the film, and discovered that smoke actually came out of the fuel tank six frames before impact. Acting on a tip from someone involved in the Dateline crash test, FaAA investigators searched through 22 junkyards in Indiana before finding the charred wreckage of the GM pickups.[7][8] It was also later revealed that the Dateline report had been dishonest about the fuel tanks rupturing and the alleged 30 mph speed at which the collision was conducted.
