To be fair, the reason this zimmerman thing became a story is because he killed that kid, and then the cops brought him to the station, didn't arrest him for it, and gave him back his gun.  It was the way the situation was handled by law enforcement that sparked the initial outrage, and then turned into a big racial thing.  Likely the story you're posting was not covered because it's par for the course, same as it ever was status quo evil, and Americans like sensationalism almost as much as self-vicitmization.

Because it was a clear case of self defense, everyone knew it from the very begining. The only reason it went to trial at all is public outrage. So, we spent millions of dollars on a trial everyone knew the outcome of all because butthurt... **** you.

whoa, who said I supported the whole deal? This was a criticism of the way the media and our society handled the situation, and the overreactions so many people had. I was just pointing out that the main issue didn't actually start as racial, but it wound up becoming racial even though zimmerman is a latino.

you didn't watch the live trial did you? the Dispatcher only "advised" him to not follow..although this is directly after he asked him which way did he go after knowingly been told Travon was out of sight. The dispatcher admitted that they can't and won't tell people what to do, bc it can go back on them if the person they are talking to ***** up. He only said stop following to save his ass bc he knew **** was going to go down. Also, Travon assaulted Zimmerman, straight up jumped him if you believe zimmerman's retelling. Last time I checked it isn't a crime for a neiborhood watch to follow someone being suspicious.

Also, if I asked you to watch were a person was going and then he turned out of sight..what would you do? sit there like a tard on the phone going "WHERE DHE GO GEORGE, WHERED DHE GO!?!? DARN YOU FENCE!! FOILED ME AGAIN!!!"

Zimmerman was released because Florida has a stand your ground law that states if you kill a man in self defense there doesn't have to be a trial all he has to do is give a statement and leave. After Martins family claimed racism and hate crime then there was a huge out cry from the community and he was put on trial.

There are ways of proving self defense. Zimmerman's account was backed up by physical evidence. Martin had no injuries other than bruised knuckles and the bullet wound. That bullet wound's trajectory was found to be consistent with having been shot from below. Even though Martin wasn't alive at the trial, he still had a story to tell.

Oh, one more thing: the stand your ground law is irrelevant here. That law says that I don't have to retreat if I don't want to. When Martin was shot, Zimmerman was in the process of being attacked by him. Stand your ground means **** in that case

It wasn't any flaw on law enforcement that made this a problem. The police looked at the evidence they had, the evidence that was brought again to a jury, and saw no reason to accuse Zimmerman of a crime. That hasn't changed. He still hasn't been convicted of a crime, because there still isn't evidence to convict him of one. The police did everything they should have.

This whole trial I've felt like I'm taking crazy pills. It's like everyone else's logical faculties just imploded. Every time the story is told in the news it's "Zimmerman followed and killed Trayvon", they intentionally omit the part where Trayvon beats the **** out of him. I was watching an interview with the Prosecution today and they asked for one word to describe Trayvon and they said "Brave". How the **** is anything he did even remotely brave? He bravely beat the hell out of a man while he screamed for help?

What really gets me is that they will crucify Zimmerman's "poor judgement" for getting out of the car to look for Trayvon, but not say a word about the fact that Trayvon's reaction to being watched was to savagely beat the man. Not confront him, not even hit him once and subdue him. He punched him in the face, broke his nose and then started repeatedly bashing his head on the curb. That is the only thing that got Trayvon Martin killed. Not racism or profiling. He made the fatal decision to attack an armed man case closed. Rant over.

The problem is that Zimmerman shouldn't have been following him in the first place. His superiors even said "we don't need you to do that". If someone walks up at me in the middle of the night, gun out, you can bet your ass I'm going to defend myself.

In case you hadn't heard, Martin was 30 seconds to a minute from his house. Would you walk up to your home and show a gunman where you live? No. Would you ask for help in a neighborhood that has a history of racism? No. I'm not saying he made the right choice, but there wasn't much of a choice for him in the first place.

Martin defended himself as anyone should have. He shouldn't have gone so far, no, but I'd be fighting if someone was stalking me right outside my home with a gun. I wouldn't lead someone who potentially wanted me dead to the place where I stay, because that's ******* stupid. Martin had no way of knowing Zimmerman was who he said he was. For all he knew, the man with his pistol out wanted to rob/murder his entire family.

Read the account. There was no pistol out. Zimmerman had it with him, but not in his hand. Martin reached for it first.

A man with a gun in his hand does not yell for help (heard in the background of the 911 calls)

A man with a gun in his pants being beaten and unable to reach it because he's being beaten senseless would indeed yell for help. And based on the fact that he didn't go for the gun until Martin did first, Zimmerman really didn't want to kill anyone. That tells me this is a prime example of self defense.

What the **** was trayvon supposed to do? He was being stalked by someone even though 911 told him NOT to follow him, was he supposed to run? Then why is he running? He must have something to hide, he's guilty! Just surrender and let the person following him do whatever he wanted? No matter what he what he does, it would have been wrong. The pro-Zimmerman people cry that Zimmerman was guilty until proven innocent by the media while they are doing the exact same thing to Trayvon.

Yeah, about that. Trayvon didn't live in Zimmerman's neighborhood. He wasn't a few feet from his house. Some people have said he was going to his uncle's house that was in the neighborhood, but various searches regarding his uncle lead to no mentioning of it. If you would bother to check your facts, every article blatently says he didn't live in the neighborhood. Also, how would Trayvon know Zimmerman was armed? Zimmerman's gun was holstered, and it was night. Unless Zim had neon lights attached to the holster, I don't even see how that's physically possible. I really want to know where you get your information from, cause its horribly, horribly wrong.

You're right, thanks for nitpicking. He wasn't a few feet away, Martin's house was about 2 small apartment buildings away, which is about a minute's walk. And if you checked your facts, you'd know that they in fact did live in the same neighborhood with his father, not his uncle, and that Zimmerman lived on the street on the opposite end from where Martin was staying. He followed him as soon as he entered the subdivision and called the police when Martin hadn't even done anything wrong.

Once again, you are wrong. He did not live there. Neither did his father. His father's fiancé did live there though, whom his father was visiting. I apologize for the slight mix up there, as I only looked to see if he or anyone he was related to lived there, which they did not. I see that you didn't comment on the gun again, so I'll assume you have no more arguments for that, but you did mention Zim had no reason to follow Martin. Wrong once again, friendo. There are two things you need to know about. 1. Zimmerman's neighborhood was a gated community. That means there are certain rules for outsiders of the community. You can look them up at your own leisure. 2. Zimmerman was the head of the Neighborhood Watch. You might have already known this, but you might be missing some information. If you have listened to the unedited phone call, Zim says that he was under the impression that Martin was under the influence of drugs and looked as if he was up to no good. That is part true, as various drugs were found in his system after the autopsy was done. Bit of backstory for you, but the neighborhood had been the victim of various break-ins lately, so this would be cause for caution. While Zim was advised to not follow and wait for the police, he was not directed to, so he was still allowed to pursue at his own discretion. So yes, while Martin had not done anything wrong, Zim still had reason to be curious about an unknown person acting suspicious. I hope this 'nitpicking' helps.

Because Trayvon really got to tell his side of the story and what he saw. He's walking down the street at night, see's someone following him, gets scared ********. Calls his friend. This person is still following him, get out of the car, and approaches him. If I was in his position, I'd feel extremely threatened. Am I about to get jumped?
Murdered? Robbed? Not to say I'd run up and beat the **** out of the guy instantly, but is that what really happened? Why? Because the guy who killed him said so?

Is it possible that Trayvon got scared for his life when being followed at night, ended up seeing the gun, and started to fight for his life? Just because he was a little wanna be thug poser kid, that doesn't mean he deserves to die.
