If Trayvon Martin had not started a fight, drawn first blood, had been friendly, had gone home, we wouldn't even be having this conversation and he would be alive....

Trayvon was not justified in his response of force and the evidence and jury says so...

By the way, we didn't always need neighborhood watches. What changed to make it necessary today?
Why are neighborhood watches so common today?

We have had the great welfare/social experiment going on since FDR and Democrats controlled Congress from WWII up until Bill Clinton's first mid-term elections.

The governor of Louisiana was a Democrat when Katrina struck.

She said "They have M16s and are locked and loaded. These troops know how to shoot and kill and I expect they will," Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco said.

Your Democrats sure took care of you people, didn't they?

Zimmerman broke the rules of Neighborhood Watch. He & the housing association will both be sued & both lose.
If he'd been arrested immediately on some charge, even a minor one the case would never had made the national news. Instead, Zimmerman was treated as a friend of law enforcement and sent home after a cursory interview hours before the body was identified.

Martin's parents have already settled out of court with the HOA's insurer for a rumored figure of just under $1 mil.

It will be difficult for Martin's family to sue Zimmerman in Florida Civil Court and it's doubtful that the DOJ will pursue civil rights violations___just interesting TV talk.

Zimmerman's wife still faces a perjury charge for lying about their finances.

Yea & somewhere in Florida, a mother is doing 20yrs for firing a weapon, a warning shot, in self defense to stop the advances of her exhusband, of whom she had a restraining order against. The shot didn't even hit anyone. Talk about justice!

By not convening a Grand Jury, which is standard procedure in cases like Zimmerman's the DA assumed the job of judge & jury.

She submitted an affidavit that was, if not perjurious, completely misleading. She violated all kinds of rules of the profession, and her conduct bordered on criminal conduct. She, by the way, has a horrible reputation in Florida. She's known for overcharging, she's known for being highly political. And in this case, of course she overcharged. Halfway through the trial she realized she wasn't going to get a second degree murder verdict, so she asked for a compromised verdict, for manslaughter. And then, she went even further and said that she was going to charge him with child abuse and felony murder. That was such a stretch that it goes beyond anything professionally responsible. She was among the most irresponsible prosecutors I've seen in 50 years of litigating cases, and believe me, I've seen good prosecutors, bad prosecutors, but rarely have I seen one as bad as this prosecutor,[Angela] Cory

Slurp up trhe libuhrulTIC fed BULLcrap DUHMMY.
But here's some of the FACTS.
George was born October 5, 1983 in Manassas, Virginia. He was born in Prince William Hospital. This is the same hospital where his brother was born three years earlier and where his sister would be born three years later.
I was in the US Army for approximately 21 years. During much of my later service, I was assigned to the Office of the Secretary of Defense as an Executive Support Supervisor. As an enlisted man, and living in a high cost area, I routinely worked a second job. For this reason, many of the duties associated with raising our children were the responsibility of my wonderful wife, Gladys. Cristina, my thoughtful and loving mother-in-law, has been living with us since before our first child was born. She also played a very significant role in raising our three children.
George’s mother, Gladys, was born in Lima, Peru. After graduating from college, she became a physical education teacher. However, during a trip to visit her brother, a soldier stationed in the Military District of Washington, we were introduced. Immediately, I knew I wanted to spend the rest of his life with this beautiful, intelligent young lady. Gladys was not at all that convinced about me. However, on December 20, 1975 we were married in a traditional, Catholic wedding.
Our first few years were somewhat of a struggle. However, we were eventually able to purchase a home in Prince William County, Virginia and start our family.
In 1978 Gladys started working for the Circuit Court of Prince William County. She also became very well known in the Hispanic community and a very active member of All Saints Catholic Church. Gladys was also a dedicated member of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, helping those in need throughout the community. Being both bilingual and very well known in the community, Gladys was routinely sought out for her advice and assistance by members of the rapidly growing Spanish-speaking community.
As in NON JEWISH, Latino decent.
IDIOTS.

Did your hate filled, ignorant brain ever consider it might be because it "WAS" black males who were committing the crimes, race baiter?

It wasn't just Zommerman, "workers" also reported it was "black" men, you clown.

On February 6, "workers" witnessed two young black men lingering in the yard of a Twin Lakes resident around the same time her home was burglarized. A new laptop and some gold jewelry were stolen. The next day police discovered the stolen laptop in the backpack of a young black man, which led to his arrest. Zimmerman identified this young man as the same person he had spotted peering into windows on February 2.
