I know from experience how the Mother ad Father feels. I know the pain feels like it will never go away.But if you will trust in Christ and put all your Faith in him I promise you he will never leave you or foesake you. I know right now you are probably saying where are you God? Remember Me I need you now more than ever. Just remember he is holding you both as parents in the palm of his hand. I Love you. And truefully I don't think it had anything to do with race. just look to god for help now, not Justice. He (God will get his Revenge). Try thinking of it in a positive way. God knew it was time for Trayvon to go home Try Oh Please Try to look at it this way instead if trying to get revenge God will take care of that. I'm Praying for you anad the whole family. please let God handle this All we as humans will do is make things worse. Keep Looking to the Lord. He will get you through it and YOU will come out on top.
In Christ Love.

We only know parts of the story. I am sorry the boy is dead and I am sorry for the man and his family, but we just don't know everything. What if that boy turned on the man to show how tough he was and things got out of hand.I believe self-defense is considered when you feel that your life is in danger. Right or wrong?

If someone was floowing you at night, every turn you made, even after you started running, then this unknown person got out of the vehicle and approached you, would you fight ? Stand your ground applies if you are the victim or potential victim. If you disregard the advice given by law enforcement, and place yourself in that situation, I don't think stand your ground applies. That being said, we still don't know all of the facts yet.

Fla stand your grd law is for when you are being stalked or cornered not the other way around. Shooter stalked child, confronted him, then shot him. he should have remained in his vehicle and waited for the real cops to arrive and investigate why the child was walking in the neighborhood. They have the proper training to deal with the situation. I don't buy that this child jumped the shooter, who was 10 yrs older, 100 lbs heavier, and armed. I think he shot the boy out of prejustice, and then injuried his own face to make it look like a confrontation took place. By the way, I'm white, 48 y/o, and live 1 hour east of sanford in lakeland area. I also work with neighborhood security at a gated community.

The people need more information on this case. The people in this country have already judged him only by what the media has preached. Now they want to hang him from the local oak tree.
Let the FBI and local law enforcement due their jobs. Let the due process take place.

First of all, it's not hot yet...it's spring and gets cool at night, especially if it's raining. Are you saying that he should be shot for wearing what is basically a sweatshirt with a hood? What difference does that make? What if he was wearing a Speedo? A burkha? A Santa suit? I agree that all the facts need to be in but this focus on hoodies (which all kids that age, black and white wear) is stupid.

let's see, it was 70 degrees with 79% humidity with the wind @ 7mph out of the East. That is warm humid air coming from the ocean and you need a hoodie? I lived in central and south Fl. and this would be shorts and t-shirt weather

This is story of a black man that shot two white British tourist, and yes the black man did use racial slur. Now why isn't these two British men getting the publicity that Martin is getting from the world? Why is the reason?

Why can't we wait until all of the facts come out, until we opine? The media is playing with the audience, and stirring up racial hate. Rioting has already started in Miami.

Let the facts come out! We don't really know what actually happened. Let us learn the truth, and then respond.

America is not living in the 50's. Racial animous is good media play! It does nothing to help our nation.

Let God take care of these two since they were fated together. They chose the outcome, they acted accordingly, only they will answer to God and God will deal with them His way. Man can judge, slander, hate, blame,point fingers, but what is the outcome of all this prejudice? Nothing.
God decides everyone's fate, not your neighbor.
God decided His own son's fate, He decided who was going to betray Jesus before Jesus knew. So God knew about this shooting before Martin or Zimmerman knew it. It was fated by God.
