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

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.

Wow!! That is a very good question: why didn't he tell the dispatcher he was packing?

No, just no. This is ridiculous. The facts surrounding this case have been so messed up it isn't even funny. Trayvvon was not innocent, he was a known burglar and wannabe gang member. He attacked Zimmerman first and his own father told the commissioner that the voice crying for help was not his son. He later changed his story in court. Yes we need better gun education, but we also need better education period. Enough is enough. I'm done coddling other African Americans. I don't use my...

Yes we need better gun education, but we also need better education period. Enough is enough. I'm done coddling other African Americans. I don't use my nationality to excuse my shortcomings. Trayvvon Martin was a rude, disrespectful little prick and Zimmerman is a trigger happy scary cat. How about you teach your kids respect and honor before you start blaming other people for some "injustice". If trayvvon hadn't tried to be a thug he'd still be alive. Don't put all the blame on Zimmerman, it takes two to play chicken and it just so happens trayvvon lost.

@ Darlene - Do you think ANY 17 year old boy has the right to walk to the neighborhood store and purchase tea and skittles and talk on the phone with a friend as he walks home without being followed? I know that at 17, my son wore the exact type of clothing Trayvon was wearing; is clothing a reason to be profiled? Zimmerman was a wannabe cop; he DIDN'T QUALIFY. So he decided to become the eyes and ears for the police (after all - that is ALL NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH is!) He had reported Trayvon as...

So he decided to become the eyes and ears for the police (after all - that is ALL NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH is!) He had reported Trayvon as a "suspect" ("suspect" implies Trayvon has done something wrong which was absurd) and he told the operator what Trayvon looked like and Zimmerman's part in this situation was complete. The real police were on the way and certainly they could find a 17 year old boy within a three block area - Trayvon was walking home NOT hiding. The police would have had it handled in two minutes and Trayvon would have been watching the game he was looking forward to.

George Zimmerman is a piece of shit, a liar, and a pervert. He deserves the worse

A man who can't tell the difference between a resident,guest, or total stranger in his community, and shoots a person he was supposed to protect, is too dangerous to have a concealed carry permit and be allowed to wander the streets stalking and terrorizing people he thinks are "...up to no good....".
