This boy was killed for being perceived as a threat because he was black! This boy was killed for no reason other than the fact that he was born the wrong color and was walking in the wrong neighborhood! A neighborhood where certain individuals felt he didn't belong! The more things are thought to have changed, the more they stay the same!

After expressing my sincere empathy and sympathy to Trayvon Martin's friends and family members, I will sarcastically and satirically address the mess and madness of those outsider shriners and whiners and groups who are showing up to get free publicity to spread their usual poop:

They ought to buy Leon Harrison's "Genuine $19.99 Makeshift Shrine" that they can use time after time, and be ready to show up at any event, what the heck, including plane crashes and car wrecks.

Saw the news with all the black protesters saying no justice no peace. What does that mean and what does that say about the black community.

The only person in danger was Trayvon Martin. George Zimmerman was instructed by the 911 operator not to follow Trayvon Martin.

Police and Sheriff's agencies across the state tell neighborhood watch members not to follow or confront suspects. Florida does not permit citizen's arrest so even licensed security officers are trained to avoid trying to detain people. As a licensed security officer in the state of Florida, if I tried to detain someone, I would be arrested.

Even if Trayvon Martin punched George Zimmerman, it was Trayvon Martin who acted in self-defense, and Trayvon Martin clearly tried to walk away from the confrontation.

No. I would say there is more than enough evidence to arrest George Zimmerman.

Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by neighborhood watch while he was returning from buying candy for his younger brother. What does that say about the adequacy of training neighborhood watch receives? Oh yeah! They receive no training.

Stand your ground doesn't apply to George Zimmerman, he instigated the confrontation and Trayvon Martin tried to walk away from the confrontation.

Trayvon Martin acted in self-defense when he wasn't allowed to retreat. It is Trayvon Martin's actions we must apply the stand your ground defense to.

Neighborhood watch has no arrest authority, nor the authority to detain a person until police arrive. Even the trained and licensed security officers do not have arrest or detention powers.

Neighborhood watch has even less authority than licensed security officers in the state of Florida.

If it turns out to be that simple justice will be forth coming, the state and the feds are involved so if the locals are covering something up they will find out.
They do have training in the neighborhood watch program as well as a manual, he obviously did not follow those guidelines. As such he should be fired as being the neighborhood watch block captain, not arrested for murder.

What if... a Sanford cop shot that boy?

Would there be a investigation?
Would the officer involved be granted full pay or relieved of duty, w/pay, until a determination was achieved?

This is a case of vigilante-ism.
This is MURDER, nothing less... and this gun carrying cretin needs to be sent to jail.

He used excessive force for NO reason.
In Brevard a man in volved in a fight with a teen resulted in jail time...

All CCW classes with NRA instructors and students, and gun magazines, cover and discuss such and similar scenarios, like ya know; emphasizing criminal and civil consequences of using a gun for self-defense and for fun. No, a CCW license is not a license to get involved and help out the cops. No, it does not qualify one to be on the SWAT team with a gun. Every gun magazine features those "it happened to me" and "you and the law" articles and stories, with wize legal advice.

Walking back from the 7-11 with some candy and drinking an ice tea is suspicious??? Since when? The problem is that his black skin made him suspicious.
