George Zimmerman is responsible for this crime. I don't know what was in his heart as to a motive, but he killed an innocent boy and justice needs to be served.

Who out there in Durham cares about this case? Anyone know of any rallies on Trayvon's behalf coming up?

I hope not. A business full of innocent white people were murdered and injured here in Durham by a black man. Will there be a rally calling for the KKK to come straighten out the matter? Of course not. This world is full of injustices. Now that the dumbo black panthers have injected themselves into the matter in Fla and have in fact demonstrated their schizophrenic thinking by calling for a bounty on the shooters head, I am hoping the Government will arrest them. Have you people googled the New Black Panthers? They are absolutely delusional. Read their manifesto.
I do care about the fact that Trayvon Martin was mowed down in cold blood. I feel that the shooter should be arrested and brought to justice.I also think he should be tried in another country. As long as the blood thirsty panthers are involved they can have their prison mules tear him to pieces. Since when can a neighborhood watch captain go out shooting people they do not trust?

Trayvon's death is tragic but another tragedy is Zimmerman's state of mind. He was sick of crime and having to be on alert every minute. Been there, done that. He was led to believe he was a partner with the police against crime. The dispatcher should have continued on by saying, "We don't need you to do that so go home right now and stop following the man. Do you hear me? Go home now!! or something of that nature. The police should never think that the public can or will react to a simple command like the police are trained to do.

It's not a crime in America to walk the streets. Trayvon had every right to be where he was and Zimmerman should never, ever have confronted him, NO WAY. If Zimmerman is neighborhood watch then he's suppose to "watch, then report", NOT "watch, then confront. Frankly Zimmerman never said the kid was doing anything wrong...his 911 call only talked about what he, Zimmerman assumed Trayvon "MIGHT" do based on Zimmerman preconceived notions based on the boy's race. Additionally the police left that kid in the morgue days without trying to find out who his parents/relatives were...the kid had a cell phone - POLICING 101 - All those cops should be FIRED. Who needs cops who can manage to handle the basics...but again it was a black kid and it appears they did not care.

Did Trayvon's father report his son missing when he did not come right home from the store? I do not have a clue if what you are saying about the body being left in the morgue and the cell phone, is true or not. My teenagers do not have their parents keyed into their cell phones. And it takes a while to retrieve cell phone contents. All along the way one has to get warrents and court orders to investigate anything. Maybe you are the one who is racially profiling the police. Maybe they were doing exactly what they were supposed to do, just not as fast as you wanted them to do it. In case you have not noticed, all Americans are being forced to walk on egg shells where Hispanics and Blacks are concerned. White Americans don't dare do what they have dared us not to do. We cannot read "Little Black Sambo". We cannot watch watch "Song of the South", We cannot utter racial slurs. We cannot ask anybody if they are in this country legally. We have to ignore fire codes when 20 people pack into a 2 bedroom dwelling because they do not want to pay rent and do anything that supports this American economy. We are repeatedly having to make some sort of restitution to generations of people who ancestors were slaves. We are repeatedly accused of holding black people back. If that be the case then why isn't Africa a thriving continent? instead of the same ole "dark continent" that it has always been. What pockets of civilization are there is because of white missionaries who lived there and taught the people a better way.

Do the numbers.....history does not lie
Black males are profiled everyday...and unfortunately many are murdered for "Breathing While Black"
"Trayvon Martin is the 21st Century Emmitt Till"
May the Ancestors & Creator Bless and give his family strength during this horrible time. Please support Travon's family with donations to The Trayvon Martin Fund.

Zimmerman's best friend is black and he was on the Today show saying that Zimmerman is not a racist and he was standing behind his friend. Also, it was reported that Zimmerman had a gash on the back of his head where he was struck by an object. He is saying he was attacked and is saying he shot in self defense. The grand jury is meeting this week to go over the evidence and Zimmerman could be charged with murder or manslaughter depending on the evidence. The media has blown this thing WAY out of proportion trying to say it was a hate crime. Zimmerman is mixed race himself,

Ed, I have to tell you this. Your ancestors are either in Heaven or Hell. Either way they are not the ones who send blessings. Blessings come from the God of Heaven. The black race here and in Africa has failed miserably because they want to worship other Gods. The God of Heaven will not have any other God before Him. There are many blacks wno have discovered this truth and they have bowed their hearts and knees to the One True God of Heaven. They are out of bondage. They do not fear any man. They do not worship ancestors or demons anymore. They are free. Free of hate, free of fear, free from the past. They have a future. Why don't you join them?

Mike, I agree that this has been blown out of proportion by the media and that it was not racially motivated. If it had been a white female, I believe Zimmerman would have done the same thing. Do you remember the way the Pink Panthers came roaring into Durham over the Duke LaCrosse case? They left with egg on their faces when the facts came out. It is so obvious the blacks in this country want to start something big. That is why they go about chanting "No justice, No peace".
They want "POWER". "BLACK POWER". Just like satan in the garden. Well, thank God the peace of this nation is not in their hands.

In a civilized society, being offended (because you're being followed or whatever reason) doesn't give you license to commit assault. This apparently is a difficult concept for Negroes to grasp. Attack someone with a gun, expect to be shot.
Save the lynching history, blacks and whites were lynched, it was called frontier justice because there were no cops to call in many places. You animals have killed more white people in the last decade to make lynching numbers over hundreds of years statistically insignificant.
