I dont know what to believe and the media will do anything to sensationalize the story.
First it was a little child shot
Then he had just gone to the corner store and his family didn't report him missing for 3 days?
Now I hear this little child was 6 ft 2 in and weighed 200lbs
and that witnesses say he went after the shooter
Yes I need more info before judging.

My biggest fear is, with his poll numbers in the toilet Obama will play the race card on this and try to use it to his advantage. As he is already commenting on it.
Right out of the DemocRAT hand book "Never let a good tragedy go to waste"
Obama will not care if he tears the nation apart playing the race if he thinks it will be for his personal and political benefit.

Media is lying about this TNB incident just like they always do! No doubt the feral dark youth was up to no good, just like your average negro buck is always up to no good! How did Zimmerman get his nose broken I wonder??? The young negro was attacking him and got shot in self-defense! Next case please....

The death of Trayvon Martin is a tragedy, just as the death of every person who passes in such a matter is a tragedy. How it came to be will be determined in the due course of an honest investigation, not by exploiting a familyís tragedy for votes and ratings.

The only way to give Trayvon justice, for non-progressives still interested in such things, is to let the investigation lead where it goes, not pass the same prejudgment on George Zimmerman progressives accuse him of passing on Trayvon. Itís time for progressives to stop dancing on Trayvon Martinís grave, to stop dancing on the graves of all the victims they exploit, take off their bigoted blinders and join the rest of society.

They wonít. They canít. Itís who they are. So itís up to the rest of us to help them at the ballot box by continually rejecting any and everyone who would seek to abuse victims for political gain. Especially when that trail leads to the White House.

Racism is alive and well and thriving in this country. The stand your ground law, is nothing but a Jim Crow law, that has replaced hanging the black man from the tree. The linching of the black man is nothing new it's common practice, it's just racism under another name.

You have that backwards...African Americans have been using the race card since coming to this country and still use it today when they don't agree something. An African American can get pulled over by the police for a simple legit traffic infraction and what comes out of their mouth 9 times out of 10...." You only stopped me because I was black". I think the best response a police officer could give to that is "You only said that because I am white, now let me see your license registration and insurance".

The media is putting a huge spin on this story and getting some people all worked up. Wearing a hoodie has nothing to do with what happened, but the media is turning this thing into a HOODIE circus. Plenty of law abiding citizens wear hoodies, does that mean once they put a hoodie on they are a thug or a criminal. Score one for the media for getting the minority population all worked up over something that doesn't mean a thing.

doesn't hurt to ask....lol

If they don't have any of those then they can just be issued more tickets that they won't pay. Then they will blame the white for keeping them down. Just a racist crutch and circle for them.

As of right now he was acting within the laws of Florida and according to Florida law he didn't commit murder. It was however senseless that things turned out the way they did. All Zimmerman had to do was stay on the phone with 911 until the police came and then let the police handle the situation. But this is what happens when some civilians think they are the police. I bet Zimmerman wants that day back so he could change a few things, like not carry a gun on neighborhood watch, no need for it.

Once again you've contradicted yourself. The Stand Your Ground Law was NOT intended to follow a person in a public place and shoot them. Then you turn around and say....he was out bounds in what he did, he took the law in his own hands.

Once again: Zimmerman committed a murder and needs to be arrested. It might take a moment, but Zimmerman will be behind bars charged with a criminal offense!

you characterize yourself so well.

"nonprogressive"

that sais alot.

how about we give the family of trevon marten some justice by locking up up zimmerman.

would you want a racial profiler free, stalking the youth of your community?? I sure wouldnt.

I thought you guys on the right were all about a hard hand in premeditated murder cases ike this one.??

where is the outrage?

or do you enjoy this sort of thing JUST FOR the circus??

like youre accusing the liberals of doing.??

you lead in "the only way to give justice to non-prgressives is to blah blah"

would you prefer two different sets of laws for caucasians and blacks? or liberals and conservatives??

or is it one constitution for all????

im sure youd be really leinient(like youre being with zimmermann) if it was a black guy who stalked a white youth and executed him point blank.??

yeah right.

btw: you guys have no chance in the general election with Romney.

he is the weakest gaffe machine of a candidate who has two positions on every issue

one for the business republicans in the NE and one for the heatland/bible belt social conservatives..

it is very disingenious and people are seeing right through it as you know.
