The whole thing is bullshit. Treyvon was just going to get some Skittles for his brother. You can even hear Zimmerman on the 9-1-1 tape mutter a racist comment before going after him (which he was told by the operator not to do), and you can even hear him load the gun before doing so.

If Zimmerman was Black and Trayvon was white, There would already have been an arrest

I do believe that Zimmerman murdered this young man from the information I have read but a court needs to decide if what I believe is true.

Where is the outrage from the whites being victimized by blacks and hispanics? Shall we burn down our communities when black/hispanic on white crimes occur? Are all of these crimes below racially motivated?

Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.

Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife.

Hispanics commit three times more violent crimes than whites, but the statistics are nebulous because sometimes they are classified as white, so it could be far higher.

Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery.

54 percent of black crime is against whites, 43 against other blacks, and 10 percent against Hispanic.

That wasn't the handgun you heard him loading, he was putting a belt in his M 60 that was mounted on the roof of his SUV, but he left his vehicle so he never got to use it. His father has it now in case the Black Panthers show up looking for George.

From a letter to Turner Clayton of the Seminole County NAACP by someone who has to stay anonymous for now to avoid being lynched by the bloodthirsty mob whipped up by Al Sharpton and the “mainstream” media:

You will recall the incident of the beating of the black homeless man Sherman Ware on December 4, 2010 by the son of a Sanford police officer. The beating sparked outrage in the community but there were very few that stepped up to do anything about it.… Do you know the individual who stepped up when no one else in the black community would? Do you know who spent tireless hours putting flyers on the cars of persons parked in the churches of the black community? Do you know who waited for the church-goers to get out of church so that he could hand them flyers in an attempt to organize the black community against this horrible miscarriage of justice? Do you know who helped organize the City Hall meeting on January 8, 2011 at Sanford City Hall?? That person was GEORGE ZIMMERMAN. Ironic isn’t it?

I am curious. Upon seeing the ubiquitous picture of an 11 year old Travon Martin used exclusively, two questions come to mind. Was that the very latest picture of him available or was it impossible to find an "innocent" looking picture of him past the age of eleven?

There just aren't enough facts in this case. Why were these two fighting. Why was Zimmerman following this child? Why didn't the police come sooner.

You know the old saying, when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

The case will probably be tried in a different state and Zimmermann will be found not guilty.

The dispatcher/operator, whatever, never told Zimmerman to not follow Martin.

Betterto be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt...the name calling and insults aren't really necessary, but then, the jury is still out...odd that it took so long to get this fellow into court and have him receive the same justice (interim) meted out for a DUI.
