I dont believe Zimmerman went after Trayvon to kill him. I think there WAS racial prejudice. He saw a young black boy and assumed the worse. I do believe Trayvon fought him, and was getting the best of him. I think Trayvon saw the gun, and just like anyone else, tried to get it before Zimmerman did (I would have. Especially if a man is following me and I dont know him, and we end up fighting, AND he has a gun.) He went for the gun, he scared Zimmerman, Zimmerman got the gun first and shot Trayvon. Still doesn't eliminate the fact that Zimmerman should have never followed Trayvon. He's guilty.

I think there was no justice and a guilty man is free.

No justice? Can you name one law that Zimmerman broke? Justice was served and that should have been the end but its not. Because of the racist Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson have to always pull the race card.

Get over it and move on. I feel sorry for his family that they will not be able to see him again, and they need time to grieve. Leave them alone. Show them some respect.

You don't know what you would have done in the same situation. Do you? I guess you'd let someone kill you before you killed them. Martin wasn't squeaky clean either!

What law did Zimmerman break? He has a conceal carry permit for the gun and in the state of FL he can legally use it for self defense. He quit following Trayvon and was walking to his car when Trayvon doubled back and confronted Zimmerman for following him. Neither man is innocent in this case, both parties played a part in the accident.
The prosecution knew they didn't have enough evidence to convict Zimmerman which is why they arrested him only AFTER the media and Obama/Holder sensationalized the case.
