How about let the trial process determine what happened. I'd hope that would be option number one on your poll. This is America after all.

No one other than the jury is trying to determine anything. Why can't people express their own opinions? Nothing wrong with that.

I agree, they botched the trial big-time. I think the only reason they went through with the prosecution is because Obama and his supporters started saying that Trayvon was just some innocent kid, and it turns out that he had a history of violent behavior. Maybe Obama should stop commenting on these incidents or at least wait until the facts are revealed? Remember when he said "the Cambridge police acted stupidly" and then was forced to apologize?

I am sick of hearing about this stupid trial. It is not national news. The media is blowing it out of proportion just to get ratings. Cameras should be banned from the courtoom. I'm just sick of it.

You shoved him and his "social justice" ideology down our throats with your vote. Social justice; the idea of judging a situation solely on skin color and/or class.

Sound familiar?

If Zimmerman is acquitted, there will be riots from one end of the country to other. The riots after the Rodney King trial will be like soft serve ice cream to what will happen if Z walks free. Plan accordingly.

Did people take to the streets and riot when OJ was found not guilty?

Did they riot when Casey Anthony was acquitted?

Both of these three ring circuses were tremendous boons for the media. Both were over murders. Both were 24/7 cases, highly charged and the talk of every water cooler across America.

What would be the difference in this case?

Everyone knew OJ was guilty. That was black man killing a white woman. If a white person had killed OJ there would have been riots. Casey Anthony was white. Trayvon Martin was black and the man accused of killing him is being described as a White, Hispanic.

Sooo, when things don't go the way the black man thinks they should, that justifies rioting, looting and burning their own homes? Good to know.

Travon had a history of violent behavior? Can you post some examples? Obama is the reason for this trial? You do know Zimmerman attacked a cop right? You do know his girlfriend had a restraining order on him? Oh well don't bother with facts, just blame Obama. Huge LOL!

White people don't have a history of being oppressed, harassed and profiled in this country. Yeah, that's probably got a lot to do with it.

Oh I don't know. Maybe pickin out a kid because he's black and calling the police on him, labeling him as a punk and calling him an a-hole, without even knowing who he is. Then pursuing him as if he were a criminal when in fact all he was doing was walking to the house where he was staying. That might be "profiling".

Neither Zimmerman, or Martin are "white" so what is your point?
Why does it always have to be about race?
So, from what I see,.....if Matin would have been a white person, you'd have no problem with Zimmerman shooting him, based only on the color of his skin.
Funny, that I never see any posts on here about all of the black people shooting other black people right here in our own city. I guess thats different because in your mind that is o-k. We here about those almost every morning on the news, yet you dont complain about it. It's different if a Hispanic person is involved, and then it's a "race" issue, and you somehow blame white people for it!

Racist much?
