People who defame and or slander others need to be held accountable with laws that would make what they do a crime punishable by inprisonment.

I don't believe all the facts in the case have been made public. Without ALL the facts, only a fool or a hot-head, would form an opinion.

Was Zimmerman a fool and a hot-head? He didn't obey a lawful order, but, the order wasn't presented as an order (We've all heard the 911 tape. The words from the dispatcher, "we don't need you to follow him," leave room to argue whether that was an order or a suggestion.).

It's a sorry day for all Americans that we can't feel safe just walking down the street. It's a sorry fact, though, we can't, not completely!

Judgement against G. Zimmerman are premature until all the facts are known. We should take at least some small satisfaction knowing the case is being fully investigated, and it's our unified voices that have secured that.

What does this have to do with this topic. Hate free speech do you?

What kind of an American are you?

You are so right to wait until all the facts are in and let the police handle the situation but there are those who want to jump in and use this as an excuse for civil disobedience. One has to wonder why there is not more concern for the thousands of young Black men gunned down on the streets of our big cities like Los Angeles,Detroit,Chicago,Atlant a,and New York. The had families and loved ones and the likes of Al and Jesse aren't out there walking the city streets at night trying to get this senseless loss of young men's lives stopped but get a single situation where they can get in front of a TV camera, and they appear. Wake up folks, your "Leaders" are in it for themselves!

Get real -- it's obvious, a tall skinny black kid in a "gated" community -- he doesn't belong HERE -- let's gut him! Absolutely disgusting that someone like Zimmerman can own a gun, can conceal it & keep on prowling for victims!

Stand your ground law should be only for if you are at the home, not while you are supposely OBSERVING. That is not self defense.

Over zealous neighborhood watchman meets teen with an attitude and dies. So sad. Free Zimmerman and stop trying in the media. Al notsoSharpton go home. NoBama shut up and quit stirring the pot. Every death is not a racial incident.

Te news has done a very bad job of reporting this. The pictures of Martin and Zimmerman are just not correct for the people they are now. Nobody knows what happened and people are judging based on no facts. It should not have happened and Martin should not have been shot. What in the world was Zimmerman doing with a gun and why was he out following Martin when the police told him to not pursue? It seems like the old west where people took the law into their own hands for no good reason but we will not know what really happened.

If it looks like a thug & acts like a thug, It needs to taste the lead rainbow.
The new black panthers say to exterminate white people.
Mexican illegals also say to kill white people with shovels and axes.
The muslims blew up the twin towers.
America better wake the 'F' up.
Thugs and anti-Americans, all need to taste the lead rainbow.
America is not a melting pot, for the worlds scum cultures anymore. Not when nothing but crap (mud people), is available.

If someone profiles someone to be a thug and their not does that make it okay to kill them??Even if they were a thug is that okay to kill them ???No it's not you can't just go around killing someone because of how they look.Zimmerman knew what he was doing when he went against what police said and followed and killed Trayvon martin.He is a compulsive liar and will try and turn killing an innocent boy in cold blood into self defense which it is not.

This is narrow minded. America needs to wake up? To what? The fact that people from all cultures, religions and races are capable of horrific crimes. You can't truly believe Caucasians, Christians and Americans aren't responsible for just as much death, crime, and evil as others.
BUT the attitude of us vs. them will further the problems of hatred.
