We continue to hear the NAACP version. They will always be slanted to their view. It may not be the truth. Need more facts.

I think its unfortunate that he has already been pinned a killer when there is not enough information. What happened to "Innocent until proven guilty." I think it is a tragedy that a kid was killed but I think people are fast to jump and immediately blame and chastise the man that did it. We do not know the whole story and therefore cannot place blame. Its obvious something went wrong that night but no one knows what. I do agree that law enforcement may have handled the situation in correctly but the blame for that should be placed on them.

I think the media and several others are playing Trayvon up to be a martyr of some sorts. Its gotten out of hand. Its tragic a kid was killed but it happens all the time and we need to let it go. Is it possible it was racially motivated? Possibly, know one really knows. But if that is the case then its an isolated event and doesn't mean every white person running around is trying to kill black people. Plenty of white people are killed all the time by black people and there are not movements to protest it. Its unfortunate events that happen and hopefully in this case it will get resolved.

But I feel that the only outcome that is going to be accepted for the fate of the shooter is for him to arrested and charged. If any other outcome happens it will be a travesty to the black community and for sure a racists move. That is an unfortunate truth.

Now that the system has been "forced" into charging Zimmerman, what is next. It will be impossible to find an untainted jury, secondly if he is tried and found innocent sharpton/Jackson will start their racist crap again. No win situation. I would hate to be on that jury. It is sad a person was killed but also sad our justice system caves into the demands of racist like sharpton/ jackson just to satisfy their racist agenda, which by the way, is how they load their pockets.
