What this country has come to? Our country was founded with violence, it grew from violence. we used to keep other men in chains. We exterminated whole tribes of natives. We even waged war with each other.

Its not "what this country has come to" because its really what we've been all along.
Nope

Zimmerman is hispanic and the race baiting ambulence chasers Sharpton and Jackson and the left wing media and Obama AGAIN are intefering in something that has not been to court and might not be. Zimmerman will be found innocent of murder and will walk. Obamas stupis ass needs to comment on the black crime wave that is in every urban center black on black, black on white, black on hispanic is the norm. Noone in America believes the black victim nonsense anymore when almost every video you see shows blacks acting out violently for no reason in McDonalds, Colleges, roving the streets attacking people in mobs. Obama will lose the election because he continues to piss off the white voter by blaming white America for all the problems of black America. He wants the black vote which he will get anyway , but he lost the white vote big time, only homosexuals and far left kooks will vote for this clown who endangers whites with his racist rhetoric.

Just for the record, I am a gun owner & shooter. What Zimmerman did was horrible, and it appears to me there was little investigation into the shooting initially. If he walks away, either with no charges, with a slap on the wrist, or no court case at all, it will be due to the Florida "stand your ground" law that allows you to use deadly force anywhere you''feel' you fear for your life. Again, I'm a gun owner and a carry permit holder. I was taught, by my family and the gun classes I took, that if I shot someone I will be investigated. If I was not justified in shooting, I pay the penalty. I will shoot if I am in fear for my life, but one individual, armed with candy, walking to his father's home is not a threat. Zimmerman called the police, and he should have let them deal with the situation. An earlier poster was right. We had a violent beginning in this country, and we continue to kill each other, often for no reason or cause. Shame on us.

U r so ignorant! If it were a white boy, since u do know white kids girl and boys wear hoodies,especially when it's raining like it was when he got shot for no reason, but if it were a white kid wearing a hoodie, u'd prob have a completely different opinion. He should've behaved and stayed in school? Who told u he wasn't?? He was on the football team. He went to the store and was going home to watch the all-stars basketball game on tv. And I don't recall the skittles and ice tea they found on him that Zimmerman was threatened by to be stolen merchandise. He paid for those items and was just going home. U need to check your facts out because u should just like Zimmerman stereotyping this young black teen as a thug? Are u serious?

I think that if it were a white kid then all of this would have never been said. I think that I am tired of black people wanting to be treated the same as everyone else and then getting MAD when they are treated the same. I think that this case is just like that black guy a while ago that the police asked him to show some ID proving that he lived in the house that he was having so much trouble getting into. Again if that was a white guy no one would have said anything and the WHITE guy would have not been invited to the White House. But if that guys house was about to be robbed then he would have been thankful. And this boy that was shot the other day, sad, but no matter where you are you have the right to protect yourself. And I think that by now the police know better then to not investigate something that happened to a black person. Because NO matter what, they are going to say that they were done wrong. Even if they were caught on video cutting a child's throat. I have NEVER owned anyone, my parents didn't, my grandparents didn't, ect... You guys should look to "your" own people for selling "your" people to others. I don't owe anyone anything, so stop acting like it, and stop saying it. You people are the one's that are MAKING people racist!

What facts ? Do you know anything other than the unconfirmed details. We know that the black teen attacked Zimmerman and broke his nose and Zimmerman had lacerations and wet grass stains on his back, and a witness will attest to this. Zimmerman should not go to jail. Now our race baiting left wing media and Obama have gotten the black community into violence mode ONCE AGAIN ! Now the blacks are wearing tshirts in Florida with a picture of Zimmerman and the words Pussy Assed Cracker written above and below it even though Zimmerman is Hispanic. So the black community will continue to make asses out of themselves like they always do led on by thier own so called leaders including Obama. And who said anything I stated yes stated had to do with the facts of this case moron. I stated statistical facts of the liberal lefts ignoring the black violent crime rates that have been growing since Obama took office from the flash mobs in Wisconsin and Philadelphia to the daily black on white violence each and every day in this country that is not charged as hate crimes and not reported by the left wing media.

Trevon attacked Zimmerman and broke his nose and Zimmerman also had lacerations on the back of his head and grass stains on his back. The left wing media and Obama will be at fault when the thug blacks spured on by Obama , Sharpton, Jackson and the left wing media riot and destroy property and kill innocent people and there will be no blame assigned to blacks , just like in the L.A. riots of 1992 . Blacks are not held accountable for thier actions and it is the lack of black leadership and Obama that lets them believe they are above the law.

Don't know why I'm bothering to try and correct you cause I'm pretty sure you'll have a biased reply but what the hell. The boy wasn't in school. According to informed sources he was given a few days off because of an empty baggie with pot residue was found in his posession. He was staying with his uncle for a few days. I'm not saying it was a justified shooting, thats up to the legal system.

If a strange man was following me for absolutely no reason, I'd break his nose too! Although I have not heard any of this about him even getting close to Zimmerman. Trayvon was too busy running for his life screaming for help! When Zimmerman called 911 he told them he was following trayvon. They told him not to. He called trayvon a coon, which proves this was all about him being black. Zimmerman feared for his life? Then y was he going towards the "threat to his life"? Give me a break!!! I am white so don't act like I'm being biased. Wrong is wrong PERIOD!!!!

If what u were told is true, then ok. But bottom line, the boy wasn't a thug. I come from a small town of mostly white people and they all smoke weed. Hell, I know very few who don't smoke weed. And it's getting worse everyday. So if he was suspended from school for weed, that is a pity, but it doesn't make him a threat like they claim.

Sorry, but I've been trained on the proper use of deadly force and getting your ass kicked for harassing someone IS NOT in the list of situations where it is allowed. This idiot Zimmerman did more damage to the image of concealed carry than any liberal media or politician ever could.

And you're on here taking up for him? You aren't the smartest guy around, huh?
