If the teen was a white, hispanic or asian there would be no issue. It's only because he's black that the blacks are screaming racism. They are keeping racism alive.

The media and lych mobs have tried and convicted Zimmerman...Minorities always claim they do not want this form of justice but are now practicing it and encouraging it... Seems like they are continuing to demand revenge for events that occured many years ago...Funny, Obama was suppose to fix that!!!!It's worse than ever!!!

I don't care if the kid was red, yellow, black or white, only a coward kills a teenager walking home from the candy store. Nobody believes this kid sneaked up on Zimmerman from behind with skittles and iced tea in hand, threw his candy to the ground, hung up on his girlfriend and told Zimmerman he was going to kill him and proceeded to attack. You would just have to be stupid to believe that. Stupid or a bigot.

You,re assuming alot and you know what happens when you assume things( you make an ass of U and me)...You were not there and you have no idea what happened...I think you are a biggot against latino's because you are not even willing to allow Zimmerman to have a FAIR trial!!!!

Oh, I really wouldn't worry about me saying Hello to you, Ron. I do not think that should be considered hijacking another thread.

You should be more concerned about what "really" and "seen it before" has to say, they sure make some excellent points that I am in total agreement with.

Perhaps your opinions and ill minded statements should be looked upon as hijacking a thread with a totally one sided, biggoted view.
Last time I checked, people are innocent until proven guilty, in this country, no matter what their color or race.. but still mistakes are made and innocent people go to jail.

Like you have the authority to know exactly what happened...your description of a kid walking home from a candy store is ridiculous, you do not have a clue as to what really happened that night, unless you were peering into your crystal ball or something.

Goodight Ron, sleep well.

I'm saying that Zimmerman's statement,(not an assumption, the police reports have all been made public), is one heck of an unbelievable story.

We know Trayvon was speaking on the phone at the time of the altercation, the phone records show the call he was on ended just as the 911 calls started coming in, the ones where you can here screaming (voice experts have said it was NOT Zimmerman screaming for help.) We know that a bag of skittles and an iced tea were found in near proximity to Trayvon's body.

So in order to believe Zimmerman's story you would have to believe this teenager walking home from the candy store, suddenly began pursuing Zimmerman,(per Zimmerman's statement as he claims he lost site of Trayvon and was returning to his vehicle.) So still holding his skittles and iced tea (found at the scene of death), and still talking to his girlfriend (as proven by time stamps on 911 calls and cell phone records)he sneaks up on Zimmerman and attacks him from behind,(according to Zimmerman's statement), initiates a life and death struggle with this guy that is ten years his senior and has a hundred pounds on him, actually states he is going to kill Zimmerman,(yeah college bound teenagers with no history of violence often just sneak up on people on their way home from the candy store to kill less than 300 yards from home.) Then Trayvon mercilessly beats Zimmerman to the point Zimmerman is loosing consciousness and going to be in diapers for the rest of his life (as shown by him walking on his own unencumbered into the police station 30 minutes after he murdered Trayvon, yeah, sure.)

Sorry, you just have to be stupid, blinded by fanatic views on appropriate gun laws or a bigot to buy Zimmermans story. He might as well claim aliens took over his brain his story is just so outrageously implausible and unbelievable. Anyone with a shred of common sense can see this. I predict an arrest and a conviction is in Zimmerman's future. Just follow the facts...

All assumptions as we cannot trust news agencies to report accurately!!! Evidence of that is the doctored replay of the actual police call so Zimmerman appears to be a racist... You go ahead and make your own assumptions from the lame,politically motivated media we have ...I will not!!!!

Well, it's fine to wait for the indictment to come down. The facts will be presented then. I don't have a problem with that. Just reading the police report itself, it's an absurdly unreasonable story being told by Zimmerman.

I have heard this kid was not what has been presented either...He was in Florida because he had issues(drug) at the school he was attending...I don't like the fact that the media keeps showing pictures of Travon when he was 14..It is equally a sham that Zimmerman has had a bounty(black panthers) placed on him with no outcry from the justice dept... We don't convict someone out of speculation and hyteria perpetrated by the media and contemplate a lynch mob... If Zimmerman is guilty he will get his!!!!!

The Black panthers have nothing to do with Trayvon's murder. He was suspended for having an empty bag of marijuana,which also has nothing to do with his murder. In the 911 tapes, Zimmerman admits he is following the kid. Yes, kid, he was 17, a high school student, walking home from buying a snack, talking on the phone to his girlfriend. With all certainty if Zimmerman had just minded his own business, none of this would have happened. I am certain Zimmerman will face justice, his story is just wildly absurd and he has a history of violence, domestic and of assaulting a police officer.

The Black Panthers are the ones who put out the bounty for Zimmerman, now that is ridiculous!!!! Who puts a bounty out on anyone in this country??? Now, you would think Obama or Holder would come out and criticise this , Huh , not a word????Obama's only statement was "If I had a son he would look like me." Thus stoking the outrage... I guess Obama took the shooting personally, he did not even know what really happened...

I heard along with the marijuana thing, he was caught with stolen property...I guess the point is we all don't know what happened and what is the truth..To jump on the lynch mob wagon is not how our legal system works..I guess our president doesn't know that..For a constitutional lawyer he is sure pretty uninformed about many of our most important laws...

Yeah, I'll put my skittles up against your gun any day! LOL! Seriously, Zimmerman is the one who went after Trayvon, we know this because he told the 911 operator. Trayvon was just walking home from the store talking to his girlfriend. Zimmerman was the one in pursuit. It's just implausible that the kid sneaked up on Zimmerman and attacked him from behind. Obviously Zimmerman initiated the conflict and he is a liar. You don't get to start a fight and pull out a gun and shoot the other guy if he starts to win. Given that the screams on the 911 call were not Zimmerman, it's not likely that Trayvon was doing much other than trying to protect himself. I'm certain now that this case has gotten so much attention, the facts will come out. But I'm certainly okay with waiting, however, there is a large data base of official documents and 911 recording already available to the public.

I didn't say Trayvon snook up on Zimmerman.. The version I heard was Trayvon went for Zimmermans gun...I don't know if that is true but I'm willing to let this guy get his day in court without joining the public lynch mob demanding his head!!!!

Yes, I agree, he deserves a day in court, that is what Trayvons family has been asking for. Until this gained public attention, there was not going to be that day in court. There is a separate FBI investigation now. I'm certain the truth will be known and justice will be served.
