The DA and Police Chief dropped by on a Sunday night to decide NOTHING was wrong, and let him go? C'mon guys, open and shut case of racism.

I don't know what the hell happened between those two and probably only God does.

It's hard to tell. I haven't heard his side of the story. The part I don't like is where he followed Trayvon after being told not to by the police. That kinda makes me think that any situation that arrised was Zimmerman's fault. If a guy with a gun was following me and confronted me I could see where I might fight.

That's not how it works. Martin made his choices, and Zimmerman defended his life. It really is that clear clut and the dispatcher at no time said 'do not follow him', this is a constant half truth being spread. The dispatcher's exact words were ' we don't need you to do that'. That is not the same as telling someone to not follow a person.

Even if he followed Martin, that does not let Martin off the hook for slamming that man's head into the ground , breaking his nose and trying to kill him, now does it? Zimmerman is going to walk, as he should. He was only defending his life.

The differences in those two statements are obvious. You see what you see want to see, but they are very different. Wake up.

You could be right. It's hard to tell with out hearing testimony. Of course we will never hear Trayvon.

I still support Mr. Zimmerman's version of events. They add up then, they add up now. Justice for Zimmerman!

You don't have to spell it out. If you feel threatened and suspicious, why follow someone anyway. Also, Zimmerman told the dispatcher that he was following Martin so when the dispatcher replied, "we don't need you to do that." Clearly, it meant not to. Since when things had to spelled out???? Really.
