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...

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 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.

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.

He was found not guilty based on the facts put forward in court. It's that simple, emotion has nothing to do with it. You can't convict a man on emotions. Taking away his rights to carry a firearm are nonsense and illegal, he was found NOT GUILTY. People should read into the case more instead of just repeating whatever the next guy said and shout racism. The FBI profiled him as NOT racist and he has black family members. It would be the same as calling a white black man. It seems that...

It seems that whenever an individual does something that people do not like, in this case also based on false facts, the emphasis is suddenly on his white heritage. I wonder why that emphasis is not considered racist.

Zimmerman will not get Book Deal! What does he have to say? We know everything. He killed an innocent child who was walking home from a store from buying Skittles and a Ice Tea. How can you get a book deal out of 1 to five sentences?

I totally agree that gun laws need to be revisited. But as for Zimmerman, a jury found him NOT GUILTY, while I might not agree with the outcome, I was also not in the courtroom to hear the testimony, so I don't have all of the information, only what the media has fed me and regardless he's entitled to all of his rights, including the right to own/carry a gun.
