“I find it odd that so often we are told we are to be alert and inform the police when we see something suspsious in the neighborhood, which is this instance was a very racialy mixed one, which is exactly what Zimmerman was doing…”No, Zimmerman was CHASING A KID IN THE DARK! Trayvon Martin wasn’t doing anything wrong, yet found himself being followed & eventually chased by a stranger. What happened to his “Stand Your Ground”? He was a teenage boy, and despite your snide remarks about him being troubled, Zimmerman had his own “troubled” past. Would Zimmerman have gone down that dark path after Trayvon Martin if he wasn’t armed? I doubt it.This is a tragedy, even for Zimmerman. He is no doubt relieved, but hasn’t stooped so low as to suggest Trayvon Martin deserved to die. For some people, it’s a disgusting celebration of the power of guns.
