The poor kid had skittles and tea in his hand and the guy claimed it was self defence..first off the guard guy is 3 times the kids size. And the kid had no type of weapon him unless the guard thought he was gonna get whooped by a bag of skittles lol forreal, either the guard is a sick freak and just wanted to hurt him or it was racial.

Actually there were witnesses, and they said the kid was the aggressor. Punched the guy in the face and had him on the ground. Get all the facts before you speculate.

You don't have all of the facts. But you won't let that stop you in your efforts to lynch Zimmerman.

. Yes please do. U r right, there were witnesses the girlfriend on the phone (who police never questioned), the 911 operator (who told Zimmerman to stop following lthe boy), or what about the neighbor ( who's door Treyvonn knocked on trying to get away from Zimmerman, who called 911 and I can hear Treyvonne pleading in the background). Al Sarpton did what needs to ne done and that is to keep this TRAGIC story from being buried like so many have been before! Oh and u r right--it's not a black vs white or even black vs Mexican-white thing, it is a RIGHT VS WRONG thing. How would I feel if ur child or family member laid in the morgue for 3 days as "John Doe" b/c no one tried to locate his next of kin even though he died w/a WORKING cell phone on his person?

Treyvon never knocked on anyones door. All witnesses said they saw Trayvon beating the fat guy. Sorry, you decide to kick someones ass you might get shot. Lesson learned I hope.

. So if ve never knocked anyone's door, then why is there a 911 recording w/ the neighbor stating that he had knocked on the door, and u could hear him in the background pleading for help.

. If what u say is true, u ever heard "Go looking for trounle, u just may find it". The ADULT Zimmerman continued to pursue the KID Treyvon even after the 911 operator demanded him to stop. Like I said, take color out of it, and what u r left with is right vs wrong.

and now mamma wants some money if you use her sons name.. and I'm sure the facts aren't all in..
and there's one thing you can count on.. if it was a white boy who was shot.. it would have made 3 lines on page 5..
(Oh and the kid would have been in school but was suspended for having marijuana on him at school..)

Everything is always a racial issue but if a black kid were to shoot or rob a white kid nothing would ever be said.

That's right, black people shoot white people everyday and there's nothing ever mentioned! This little black boy is portrayed to be a little innocent baby, real facts is, he is nothing but a little thug druggie, who is suspended from school. He messed with the wrong guy and got the wrong thing. I feel bad for the families and I don't think the Mexican deserves any punishment. Hey, even punks like skittles!

You never hear an outcry when a black person murders a white person, that is also an racial injustice and a hate crime. There is no differance.If there was they would say that whites are raciest. I believe there is reverse racism out there

Better get your facts straight before you start dishing out accusations like that!

A famous man once said to judge people by the content of their character and now we're seeing the content of this little thug's character. He was suspended from two different schools for different reasons, he had tools used for burglary on him and he had stolen jewelery on him.. What does that say about his character??? He was not some innocent little child, he was a thug who happened to mess with the wrong guy on the wrong day. Justice has been served!

. Who r u trying to kid? Had it been a white kid, the story would have made FRONT PAGE and been the TOP story on the evening news! He was suspended b/c he had an EMPTY bag w/ pot residue in it. Regardless if Treyvon was a chronic smoker or first time user, him lying 6 ft. in the ground majesty no sense at all. Like I said, TAKE COLOR OUT OF IT AND WHAT DO U HAVE?
