    Speaking as a non-American, I’m only vaguely aware of the full story here. I’ve heard that the facts might not be quite as straightforward as they seem. And as someone who’s neither black, Hispanic, nor white, I’m a neutral.

    @surfstuff55

    OK, thanks. I may ask for more clarifications.

    This is Lemont’s dream, I suppose, from the fact that his eyes are shut tight? This isn’t actually Trayvon’s ghost visiting him, like Caesar’s to Brutus before Philippi?

    This is a pretty good account of what is known and not known, as well as links to more information about the ongoing investigation. And yes, it is a dream (but only in a cartoon). Real ghosts stopped visiting people just after Brutus died.

    Zimmerman was Hispanic?

    His mother is from Peru, his father is white.

    @LameRandomName, Have you seen the footage of Zimmerman at the Police Station?? He was not attacked by Trayvon. He looks squeaky clean with NO SIGNS of a fight. The GRASS stains that Zimmerman claimed he got from the fight are NOT visible. The NOSE he said Trayvon broke, seemed fine too with NO blood on his shirt…The GASH on his head that he said he got from Trayvon slamming it on the concrete,,also NOT there….I suggest you look at the NEW developments in the case

    also, there have been witnesses that said they saw George attack Trayvon. Therefore witnesses would not be counted on in this case. Just facts and all the evidence points towards Zimmerman being the aggressor. How can you NOT be the aggressor when you IGNORE dispatch and still follow the boy?

    Oh? I haven’t been following the strip very long. Sort of like the question of whether Hobbes in Calvin and Hobbes actually comes alive or is a figment of Calvin’s imagination?

    I think you mean “just after Hamlet died”. Hamlet was visited by his dad’s ghost some 1200 years after Julius visited Marcus.

    Darrin Bell does, occassionally, hit the nail on the head. And not only teenagers, but many adults ignore the news and draw conclusions from insufficient evidence. The media, at first, conveniently left out the “Hispanic” description and only broadcast “white”, so the racists would think it was a “hate crime”.

    Darrin, let’s not ever go here right now. This is NOT an appropriate subject at this time. Let the courts sort it out first.

    Agreed. I have no particular use for Obama, or any of the other Republicrats, but he did the right thing in this case and called for a full and complete investigation…not a judgement. As the Baron always used to say, ’Vass you dere, Charlie?"

    To understand right in the Martin/Zimmerman case, just reverse who has the gun, as a thought experiment. If an armed kid walking to his father’s house with a snack was accosted by a stranger, SYG apparently gives him the right to attack and kill him, no questions asked!!!!

    Therefore if he attacked Zimmerman he was right to do so. In fact, no one has suggested that he came after Zimmerman in his truck—Zimmerman clearly started the whole thing when he followed and left his truck to came after Martin, by his own admission—and actually, confronting the child was premeditated (as evidenced by call to 911) which as I understand it not only makes in not SYG but maybe makes it more than homicide.

    @ LameRandomName – Who is the Greek Poet? I looked in Wikipedia at their list of Greek Poets but couldn’t spot them.
