No evidence yet that it's racism.

Don't need proof. Just the accusation is good enough for the press. And if no one makes the accusation, the press will 'suggest' the possability.
They start the smoke & the fire often follows.

Why didn't this man (murder) allow the polce to do their job after calling 911?? Why did this man (murder) not following the 911 operators insructions and not follow the little boy.

well i need to here all the facts that come out first.. but i do believe that this man was a definite wanna be cop and had a previous criminal history.a possible lose cannon waiting to explode. but the blacks cant blame the white man for this... take a look at the accused he looks mexican to me not white. you notice the news never says when there is a black on white crime and they dont put it that way. the last thing that family needs is jesse jackson supporting them or al sharpton 2 of the biggest racist there are. thats how they make there living they love when things happen like this.

Even the professionals are NOT clear as to the 911 recording. I am sure that audio forensics will clarify the recording which may clarify a racial slur but the bottom line is that the shooter was hyped up on 'his' goal to prevent crime in 'his' neighborhood & was pumped up on adrenalin. He was apparantly wrong but not neccesarily a racist.
It is very sad that a life was lost, very sad. But then the 17 yr old should NOT have turned to confront his 'shadow/follower'. An error in decision on both parts.
Youths make many less than good decisions ( I did & sometimes still do) but those decisions carry consequentiouses. Like driving too fast in a curve, dropping out of school, not using birth control etc etc.
This wrong decision lead to a death as bad driving might. Very sad.

The 911 operator told Zimmerman NOT to get out of his car. If a cop tells me "go inside" I go inside. If he ways "walk away", I walk away.

The kid didn't do anything wrong. At most he was just "standing his ground" when attacked by a crazy gunman.

Or maybe booze or drugs. He wasn't tested for either. When a cop shoots somebody he always gets tested.

Makes no difference about the racism. It's about an idiot murdering an innocent person.

I believe what happened to T Martin is completely justifiable. You know how those blacks are!

It starts early on innocently enough with ice tea and Skittles. Blink an eye twice and...BAM!!!
They're already up to meth and 40's of Colt 45.

I didn't hear that he was told to NOT get out of his car. I did hear that he was told that he shouldn't keep following Martin.
A 911 operator is not a cop.
The media keeps coming out with previously unheard witnesses & so called 'facts'. All the more reason to wait longer.
Now the Black Panthers have a bounty on Zimmerman. That in't right either.

Looks like his mom is trying to make a buck now. She filed trademark papers last week on her son's name being used in slogans. I guess she through the grieving process already.

Meanwhile, the Orlando Sentinel reported that Zimmerman told police he lost Martin in the neighborhood he regularly patrolled and was walking back to his vehicle when the youth approached him from behind. The two exchanged words, Zimmerman said, and Martin then punched him in the nose, jumped on top of him and began banging his head on a sidewalk. Zimmerman said he began crying for help; Martin's family thinks it was their son who was crying out. Witness accounts differ and 911 tapes in which the voices are heard are not clear.

If I was a member of a neighborhood watch and someone came into the neighborhood I had questions about I think it would be my obligation to watch that person. I think Mr. Zimmerman was right to call 911 and he was right to watch that young man until the police got there to check things out. A 911 operator is not an authority, all they can do is send the police. None of us know the truth about what went down and it is up to the law and the experts to find the truth out, not a bunch of talking heads on topix, the news or any other media. However, I don't understand why some feel necessary to automatically play the race card. Let the law do it's job.
