Jumping to conclusions without all the facts are symptoms of a weak intellect.
Why is there not a similar post regarding the child set afire in Kansas City?

I am so sick of hearing about this already. Get over it and stop running it in the ground!! They have an eyewitness that the boy was sitting on top of Zimmerman beating the crap out of him. I think this man was defending his life. They have already proved the 911 tapes was Zimmerman screaming, not the black boy. Get over it! Whaa whaa whaa, it's always something with the blacks crying racism. They still think everyone owes them because they can't get over the slave days. Puuuleeeezzzz! I agree with the police officer that said, "Act like a thug, die like one!" Same thing for whites, act like a redneck, expect to be treated like a redneck. And YES, I am a single white female that's sick of hearing this bullshit!

So what does gold teeth, tattoos and being suspended from school have to do with anything? I do believe there is more to the story and the media is making it worse. Why did guy started following Trayvon, with a gun, after the police told him not to? There should have never been a gun! He was only walking around not bothering anyone. I wish the media would shut up about it because nobody really knows happened. It is sad because the truth will never come out. And what the hell is this about Trayvon's mom trying to trade make two sayings using her son's name? Making money off my son's name is the last thing I would be worried about!

Zimmerman called police about Treyvonn, whom he found suspicious, then went back to his car when Martin attacked him, punching him.

In addition, an eyewitness, 13-year-old Austin Brown, told police he saw a man fitting Zimmerman's description lying on the grass moaning and crying for help just seconds before he heard the gunshot that killed Treyvonn.

Only because Treyvonn is black is there such a outcry about this.

I would have done the same thing if I was Mr. Zimmerman and a neighborhood watchman. I would have called it in, I would have let the 911 operator I was following someone I thought to be suspicious and when the operator said don't do that I would have went back to my car and let the police take it from there. However, if the person I found to be suspicious came to my vehicle and attacked me as was the case with Mr. Zimmerman and Treyvonn, I would have defended myself at ALL cost.

If Treyvonn Martin, I would have hung up the phone with my girlfriend called 911 and hauled ass home. I would not have went and confronted the person who was following me.

Treyvon attacked Mr. Zimmerman.

A new witness to the Trayvon Martin shooting has come forward, claiming the Florida teen did in fact attack neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, according to media reports.

According to Tampa Bay Fox affiliate WTVT-TV, what the witness says he saw could bolster Zimmerman’s claim that he shot Martin in self-defense:

“The guy on the bottom who had a red sweater on was yelling to me:‘help, help…and I told him to stop and I was calling 911,” he said.

Trayvon Martin was in a hoodie; Zimmerman was in red.

The witness only wanted to be identified as “John,” and didn’t not want to be shown on camera.

His statements to police were instrumental, because police backed up Zimmerman’s claims, saying those screams on the 911 call are those of Zimmerman.

“When I got upstairs and looked down, the guy who was on top beating up the other guy, was the one laying in the grass, and I believe he was dead at that point,” John said

There are several more witnesses as well.

All in the "smoking gun" video that Al Sharpton speaks about, you can indeed see the injuries to the back of Mr. Zimmerman's all of the video not just the clips the MSM decided to edit and show. You can find that video here:::

The MSM is making such an uproar about this, but what about the 13 year old in Kansas City that was set on fire by black boys that said to him "This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy." Clearly that is hate crime, but why are you not hearing about that?

Also, what about John Sanderson, a white Mississippi State University student, was shot to death in his dorm by three black men?

I don't recall Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, or the New Black Panthers all rallying around Mr. Sanderson's family to bring his killers to justice.

It's another Duke Lacrosse situation and as soon as all the facts come out. Jackson and Sharpton will be outta there just as they did before.

The most racist group ever established "The New Black Panther Group", along with the two most racist "so called" preachers Sharpton, and Jackson, along with that scrawny Spike Lee put a bounty on his head. That's why it's in the news.

They should arrest everyone involved with putting the bounty out, and boycott any station that allows those two preachers of hate to communicate their racist hate speech!
