I know , Maybe the Sanford minorities will be happy when the entire city is broke . Too bad if they decide to riot an loot Barefoot promised me a cheap 60 inch TV if things go south . Looting is the reason they riot as you well know.

I haven't seen him post today. I hope his lip didn't get caught in someone's zipper LOL

Like so many, he will likely be moonwalking away from his manufactured, "But, he was a child" outrage.....for many, the handwriting is on the wall.....

Bonaparte should be forced to resign in disgrace after this blatant show of racial preference/prejudice. I haven't been to Sanford in years, but it was a nice place at one time

The police Chief resigned so they could install a black one to keep the zoo calm. Now the black one will be shamed by the behavior of his part of the community.

Now, how about Angela Corey, and whatever higher power was involved? My friend, knows this Chief and said, he is a great cop, that just got in the way of a dirty deal.....Bet the city of Sanford wishes they could have a redo....

While I think that he shouldn't have been following him, and the fact that someone is dead is Zimmerman's fault. I don't care where Martin was when he was shot. Zimmerman should have left him alone. Since he chose to follow him against the advice of the dispatcher, he should also take the consequences.

Since when do we allow citizen's to decide who is arrested after someone dies? I saw this on the Yahoo.com website: After police initially refused to arrest Zimmerman, there were many large but peaceful protests in both Sanford and the Miami area as well as in New York and other cities. Those demonstrations included a mass walkout at nearly three dozen South Florida high schools.

I don't have an opinion on whether or not he is guilty, but I really don't like how he was arrested. Isn't that what a prosecuting attorney is for?

That might not be the case though, had I turned back and decided to pick a fight. You never know who you might be dealing with...

You show little or no knowledge of the facts of this trial....So, if Trayvon followed George and savagely attacked him......George is still at fault?.....just answer that?..Are you real young?...Summer vacation?....

If you are aware of the whole case...it may likely turn out that the Sanford PD, it's Chief and the initial prosecutor that advised, there was'nt near enough evidence of wrongdoing, to file any charges....May very well have been correct, all along.....Possibly easing misplaced racial tensions at a loss of millions for the Florida taxpayers.....

The fact the Trayvon is dead is Trayvon's fault. Zimmerman had every right to get out of his truck, every right to follow (although he may not have been following at the time he was attacked), and Trayvon had every right to be walking in the neighborhood. What Trayvon didn't have a right to do was to punch George Zimmerman in the nose and then escalate the attack further by bashing his head into the concrete. He carried the attack to the level that Zimmerman used justifiable force to keep from being further injured or even suffer death from skull fracture.

Get your facts straight. The dispatcher did not order Zimmerman not to follow the juvenile delinquent. She told him he didn't have to follow him. There is a difference, no order.

That made no sense whatsoever. Of course if the situation was reversed it would be Trayvon's fault. Real young? Seriously? I must be immature because I have a different opinion or I must not have knowledge of the facts.

Some have closed minds and only resort to attacking another s opinion when challenged.

P.S. Every bit of evidence, including that presented by the prosecution, supports Mr. Zimmerman's account.
