http://politix.topix.com/homepage/6870-should... The answer is 'YES', it WAS right to prosecute George Zimmerman BECAUSE....if he hadn't approached and accosted Trayvon Martin after that police dispatcher told him 'We don't need for you to do that.', NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED. But because Zimmerman CHOSE TO IGNORE what the dispatcher told him to do, Trayvon Martin is dead, and he's sitting in jail. Bottom line.

The answer to your question should be answered by the legal system. your opinion will matter no more than mine. I was not there. what the media is presenting is in my opinion very slanted. Zimmerman has in my opinion already been tried by the press. This is where justice is metted out, right or wrong.
Are you hoping for riots if Zimmerman is found not guilty? If you are promoteing riots, is this a Christian responce? what justice would rioting promote, martial law? Reality not!

Why isn't Zimmerman going to testify?? I'll TELL YOU WHY: Because, just like O.J. Simpson, HE'S G-U-I-L-T-Y!! THAT'S WHY!!

Message to Barack Obama: You, obviously, are a man who enjoys 'basking in the glow' of the spotlight and who enjoys sharing your brand of words of wisdom with all who are willing to listen. You said 'If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon Martin.' Well, let me ask you this, Mr. President: Before the verdict is read in the Zimmerman trial, are you willing to HONOUR Trayvon Martin by going on live national t.v. and speaking on behalf of all of the 'Trayvons of America' who are living with the REALITY of a broken home and the negative impact it has on the family, and to admonish citizens to embrace peace and calm if Zimmerman is acquitted?? Personally, I think Zimmerman should go to prison for what happened. But if he doesn't, that doesn't mean I want to see rioting in America.

Zimmerman's in court smirking. But he'll never be able to walk the streets of metro America ever again.

Legally, No.

Politically, it became a necessity.

Definitely!

Jerkov was told by 911 not to pursue but he wanted to play like a hero and chased down a kid for WWB (Walking while black).

He had no reason to follow the kid. None whatsoever. But he did and he murdered an innocent person.

Martin is dead due to the choices Zimmerman made. Period.

There was a lot of bad choices made that night.
Not all of them were made by Zimmerman.

It's not against the law to walk to the street, not even in a gated community, as a young black male wearing a hoodie on a RAINY NIGHT.

If Taryvon Martin had been walking down the street of a gated community wearing a hoodie on a very warm summer night, then maybe Zimmerman would have had a good reason to be concerned. But this incident happened on....FEBRUARY 28, 2012....FEBRUARY!!! And it was RAINING!!! So WHAT would be 'sinister' about someone walking down the street wearing a hoodie on a cold, rainy February night??!!

Don't be obtuse.

The 'bad decisions' began in Zimmerman's 'mind', and in Zimmerman's 'lack of professionalism'.

No. They know he is innocent and skittle boy was a violent thug. There are thousands of George Zimmermans guarding our communities each day against these criminals. They are the heroes who should be praised, not prosecuted. Leave the man be.

...If you only had a brain, Aria. Why did Trayvon Martin's father's girlfriend's neighborhood need to be protected from a 17 year old minding his own business?? George Zimmerman is the facilitator, instigator, paranoid Barney Fife-wannbe who made up his mind that WHOEVER the tall, young, black dude in the 'hoodie' was, he didn't belong there, and he was probably up to no good. Zimmerman is the one who was told by a police dispatcher 'We don't need for you to do that.' in regards following him. And you know WHY the dispatcher told him that?! Because he knew that Zimmerman wasn't a REAL LAW ENFORCEMENT PERSON AND HE WAS CONCERNED ZIMMERMAN WOULD SCREW UP, THAT'S WHY. But is that what 'poor excuse-4-a-cop' Zimmerman DID??! NO!!! He racially profiled Martin and then took matters into his own hands. And DON'T FORGET: Zimmerman said Martin 'went for his gun'. A witness for the prosecution said that Martin's DNA......wasn't found ANYWHERE...on the gun. Hmmmmmmm??!! Guess Martin was wearing brown leather gloves that were taken from the scene of the crime, huh??! Again, I'm not taking up for Trayvon Martin. I'm just saying that Zimmerman should go to prison for what happened. George Zimmerman is a LIAR and an IDI OT.

When the dispatch said not to do that, they were referring to zimmerman following travyon. There was never any mention of accosting him. Nor had zimmerman "approached trayvon".

You made that up or you're parroting somneone who made that up.

Oh... so here in this post you ADMIT the dispatch told him not to "follow" him and that's it. So WHERE did you get the "approaching" and "accosting" of trayvon that the dispatch referred to??

You made it up. Trying to try zimmerman via Topix caused this, plus a bit overzealous.
