Zimmeman killed a child that was doing nothing wrong and has ruined his own life and the lives of his family. Not very smart and its far from over.
I would agree that Trayvon was doing nothing wrong. That is until he assaulted a man who happened to be armed.

Zimmerman profiled and stalked him in the dark. Which means he prob started the fight and even if someone does punch you that does not mean you have a right to shoot or kill them.

You don't convict based on "probably started the fight." You need proof beyond a reasonable doubt. The legal definitions of "stalking" and following somebody one time are not the same. You do "have the right to shoot or kill them" if you fear for your life, as long as you legally have the gun. Read the Florida statutes. You liberals want to convict based on emotion and what you think happened, not on the law and what can be proved.

You are exactly right. We wouldn't have heard about it. Have you ever heard of the Adeirean Carey/Marcus Santiago killing in Pine Mayor Florida in 2009? The black killer was not charged under Florida's Stand Your Ground law. The Hispanic dead man is still dead. Google it. The shooting was considered justified.

If Zimmerman was under Trayvon when he shot him, why didnt he have blood all over him and Zimmermans abrasions .....i have gotten worse playing with my dog.

Perhaps you should read the police report and autopsy report concerning the lack of blood. Has your dog ever broken your nose and cut the back of your scalp?

Zimmerman has the same amount of white blood as Obama. He is half Hispanic. Google the name Joshua Chellew and tell me why the media doesn't cover the brutal beating death of a white man at the hands of 4 young blacks in Mableton Georgia 2 weeks ago tomorrow. Where is the news media on this?

WINNER! If the dead teen was white, and the shooter was black, you would be calling the State of Florida racist for prosecuting the poor black man who was defending himself.

"While you may be tempted to divert your attention away from what really happened. Here are the only three fact that really matter.

First, a man with a gun chose to pursue an unarmed teenager whod done nothing wrong.

Second, the man with the gun chose to initiate a confrontation with the teenager after he was advised not to.

Third, as a result of the confrontation, the man with the gun shot the teenager to death.

And when you focus on the facts its not the color of his teeth that keep coming back to haunt you. Its the color of his skin."

Go to sanfordfla.com and find out who was responsible for the death of young Trayvon.

Does anybody know the leading cause of death for young black males, age 15-25?
Just me

Black people are killing white people everyday. Zimmerman was a Mexican. Even Mexicans have the right to protect themselves. Black people are getting so cocky now that one of them is the prez.

All white people need to carry guns to protect themselves from these crazy killers, no matter what color they are.

I just heard that Obama & the Justice Dept. are looking into whether Martin's civil rights were violated by Zimmerman....oh, because we know the Justice Dept. isn't crooked as hell...riiiight!!! What a joke!!!
And, OBAMA...how about the citizens' rights being violated by pretty much everything YOU do...the most recent being your $100 million vacation?!?!?

Give them all guns and at the rate they are killing each other, mathematically the problem will be solved within a year or so.

I don't think President Obama frequents Greeneville Topix. You may not get an answer.
