Sad, George Zimmerman had to leave his SUV to find the street he was on, yet this was where he lived for 4 years and was neighbourhood watch. He definitely knew the street yet he left his SUV. He wanted this confrontation, because after being told not to pursue Trayvon Martin, he took the law on his own hands. He didn't have to leave his vehicle to know the street he was on. And the defence brought in a block of cement, as if Trayvon Martin brought that to this confrontation, he was fighting...

And the defence brought in a block of cement, as if Trayvon Martin brought that to this confrontation, he was fighting for his life with a confrontational person that had a 9mm pistol. Just read this and you decide, the defence kept saying that the prosecution's case was all speculation because they had no witnesses that disputed their evidence, it's pretty hard for them to have a witness when their only witness is 6 feet under. I have a co-worker that is white married to an oriental and he looked at this objectively and until I said , "what if your 17 year old oriental son was followed by a 28 year old with a gun

Nicely put Jin Rhymeswith Shin, btw lots of people make this mistake and when its explained simply the way you explained it perhaps people will start listening. RIGHT ON! Now back to the issue at hand Mr. Zimmerman.

Zimmerman, shouldn't be issued a weapon ever again, no matter any circumstances. He disobeyed a 911 dispatcher's professional instructions not to exit his vehicle any further. I wonder whether he notified the 911 dispatcher that he was armed and had how different this whole situation may have been.

So you want me to sign a petition to violate someone's second amendment rights? He was acquitted of the charges. It's a shame the teen got killed. But what about all of the gang murders in Chicago?

I believe when members of gang are discovered their gun privileges are taken away, therefore, if a person kills an innocent child in a derange way he should not be allowed to have a gun to do it again.

"shame" is a very light term to use for an adult killing a child. Zimmerman was already in trouble with the law

Cant sign this, if I were a juror he would have been not guilty too under the law. Travon drew first blood, when all he had to do was continue on home. It was a tragedy, yes it was, but he had a choice and made the wrong one. The Law is the Law. The jurors got it right with the guidelines they were presented under the law.

The law is the law? It seems to be the the law of convenience - depending on your social status (or race) . The LAW told him clearly - leave the boy alone. Instead, he creepily, not with full disclosure, followed, stalked and eventually murders with one fatal shot and kills an innocent child who was doing nothing wrong, just going home afyer buying a couple of snacks. And because he was black, he had to die because Zimmerman got out of the car with murder on his mind.

He was found innocent by six women who started the deliberation from the middle of the situation and not the beginning where Zimmerman started stalking an innocent child. Justice for Trayvon is not weak!!!!!

And if neighborhood and police actually did something about the crime in their neighborhoods besides hiding out behind closed doors; criminals would be caught & neighborhood watches wouldn't be needed. A man protecting his neighborhood and keeping an eye on a suspicious person is not racist or against the law. A punk kid beating his ass to the ground and pounding his head on the cement IS a crime. No one stepped in to help and GZ was forced to use deadly force to stop his attacker. He was...

You attack someone like that; the system won't even recognize you as a minor. GZ had to stop the attack. He called for help and no one helped (accept called the police).

The real problem here is that half a dozen people call the police about the incident as it was occurring, and not a single one actually went outside to help "whoever" was screaming help at the top of their lungs. In the end this case just highlights the failings that many Americans have being cowards today. The situation could have been totally avoided if someone had just gone to help.

Yes, it says volumes. I was surprised though that it was just 2 minutes from when Zimmerman spoke to the police to when the police arrived. In the meantime and following the arrival of the police is the time when those 6 phone calls were made. In all this who was to know that Zimmerman had a gun, which is the whole point of this petition.

Why would anyone except the government need to know he carried a gun? Unless put in a situation when he need to use it (like in this case), it is actually illegal to show the weapon you are carrying. It's called "brandishing" and can get you arrested. Not to mention that a large number of people have an unwarranted phobia of firearms that is disproportionate to their actual effect. As for the phone calls, I listened to every single one, the first one had more than enough time to go outside...

As for the phone calls, I listened to every single one, the first one had more than enough time to go outside and help. The other callers could hear the altercation as it was going on and only called the police after they heard the gunshot, which tells me that they too had time to go outside and see what was going on.
