I am white and I know how I and friends have felt about blacks for years. And I know the injustice that has occurred over the years. We have never chased and killed one.

It is the hands of the Grand Jury. Give the system time to work. Those who are protesting and speaking out also need more information. Too many of us are very quick to judge without knowing the details. Anyone who was not on the scene watching the confrontation, and paying attention, does not know the details. I believe we are all included in the group of those not knowing enough about the incident to pass down a verdict.

Not all the facts have been presented to make a decision.

This case needs to go to court. Was the Martin kid suspended from school? Did school officals find burglar tools in his back pack as well as rings etc? Was he inside the gated community? Had there been vandalism and break ins inside the gated community. Did Zimmerman have a broken nose? Was he defending himself. Those things have been reported...they may be true...they may be false. The facts should be presented to a grand jury and the press should report the truth..whatever it may be. In a neighboring town several black youths were shooting craps when a 21 year old black man approached them and shot three kids, killing one of them. Where are the Black Panthers, Jessie Jackson, and the national news media? Had Zimmerman been black none of us would know about the killing.

I'm suspicious of anything that Al Sharpton involves himself in. He has fanned the flames of "Racism". I sincerely hope the authorities will not be pressured into ill advised action before all the facts are clear.
