    Very true.
    No story for the media to stir up racism charges.

    If the Media would stop making criminals into victims, We wouldn’t have the problems we have.

    It would not have made the news at all.The only reason it did is because someone reported Mr. Zimmerman as white instead of hispanic. it wouldn’t be on the news now if that had happened to start with.

    The story would still be widely reported on, as many would be indignant over the basic fact that a black man had killed a white man, regardless of mitigating circumstances. And the truth would still be just as difficult to discern.

    Zimmerman called 911 and reported Martin walking in the neighborhood. When asked if he was following the ‘suspect’, Zimmerman said yes. Zimmerman was told to stop following Martin. Zimmerman continued driving his car and following Martin. When Martin stopped near his father’s home, Zimmerman got out of his car to confront Martin.
    Had Zimmerman obeyed the 911 operator, Martin would not have been able to “attack” Zimmerman. If Zimmerman had simply stayed in his car, Martin could have attacked the car, but not Zimmerman. There would have been no need to stand his ground, and no need to shoot anyone.
    Zimmerman would not have had to ‘stand his ground’ if he had not disobeyed the 911 operator AND exited his car.
    Zimmerman has made numerous calls to 911. Some of these calls have been played on newscasts. The residents of the neighborhood where this happened have made statements to the effect that its a good neighborhood and didn’t even need a watch, one man said it was Zimmerman’s idea to create the watch in the first place. I don’t know.
    Whatever the facts in this case, two things are certain….
    Zimmerman was told to not follow Martin AND after disregarding that order, got out of his car to confront him. Whether he attacked Martin or Martin attacked him after those two things happened is almost superfluous.
    Zimmerman wasn’t standing his ground, he was standing on ground Martin was using to walk home. Martin either didn’t want to lead this stranger to his home, or he wasn’t mature enough to call 911 to report he was being followed. He certainly wasn’t following Zimmerman’s car.
    It is a tragedy that shouldn’t have happened.

    “Chicago’s Strict Gun Control Laws did not prevent the murder of a young Teen girl…”

    For the millionth time, local gun bans & background checks are easily bypassed when neighboring states have weak gun laws.


    We need universal, nationwide background checks.

    Great post C. I think ZImmerman initiated a confrontation without no cause or need. I’m not convinced that he deserves a murder conviction. I doubt anyone can prove Zimmerman set out to kill Martin, but his actions were aggressive & reckless.

    The jury has the option of convicting Zimmerman of manslaughter instead of 2nd degree murder.

    if they looked like this, unfortunately, Zimmerman would have been convicted in a few days. Or if he looked middle eastern, same thing. and if Trayvon were a white boy Zimmerman, as is, probably would have been too.
    I’m hoping for a day when we all become colorblind with each other.
    This case also is difficult is there seems to be no reliable witness. Still, for me, a boy with candy and a soda being pursued by a man in a truck with a gun and a racist bent, can’t be right.
    if nothing else, he provoked the fight.
