I agree this guy was itching for some action and Martin was in the wrong place at the wrong time,this guy reminds me of Jim Carey's rent a cop caracter from 'In Living Color" .<quoted text>
Oh, come on! Trying to shift this into a "racist cops" thing?
Every precinct has a "Zimmerman" - the amateur cop wanna-be.
He was well known to dispatchers. But his calls - mostly a cry for attention - were only about one a month, often less. Well, that's what neighborhood watchers are for, isn't it?
But following someone after the call is something else - and he was told to discontinue. What happened after that is his own fault, and he WILL take the responsibility.
But in all seriousness once the dust settles this guy will have to live with taking a life.
