Facts are coming out now that are diametrically opposed to the impressions the news media gave everyone.

Although it doesn't shock me, it's disgusting the racial incident this has turned into with little or no facts.

Did Tayvon aggressively try to pull the gun from this guard and shot himself? Was the guard defending himself? There are two sides to this and if I were threatened and had someone who obviously wanted to hide his head, come at me, I would do the same thing that guard did. A "hoodie", as blacks like to call them, does not mean you can threaten someone else and be aggressive and expect to not be treated like the criminal you act like. Even being a black man does not mean Trayvon is a myrtyr or is innocent. He just chose the wrong person to threaten. Blacks want to make this about race. You are what you act like, and you will be treated in life like the "Hoodlum" you like to think is so cool

President Obama needs to be punished for making comments on this. Saying if he had a son he would look like Trevor etc. Thats crap... now he's tainted this case. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty and a President should never get involved in a civil court case unless the courts ask them to.

I'm shocked at the previous comments about the idea that the shooter was defending himself. The shooter was told NOT to go after the kid! Any neighborhood watch person knows that you call the police - period. You don't get out of your vehicle. You don't follow a suspect. Get a clue people.

Zimmerman was told not to pursue the kid, yet he did anyway.

And that gave Hoodieman the right to try to bash his head against a concrete sidewalk.
Just to be clear, at what point did Hoodieman have the right to try to beat Zimmerman to death?

And this becomes racism how? Why are there marches, protests, etc. when a black or Hispanic person kills a white person. Was Zimmerman's judgement good...that's up to a jury. Is this racism? Get a clue people.

Some reasons you might the race enters into this discussion - whether Hispanic or Black:
- Initial news reports said black teen had been shot by a white man.
- most newscast photos show a 13-14 year old baby-faced kid instead of the 17 year-old in some photos on the internet (check it out) one with a "grill"
- Zimmerman's photo is a 2005 mug shot
- Zimmerman's best friend who just happens to be black is interviewed by network media
- President Obama "identifies" with Martin - saying if he had a son he would look like Trayvon
and lastly,
- AL SHARPTON and JESSE JACKSON show up! Is Jeremiah Wright far behind?
The investigation is ongoing. With all the media attention, does anyone really think an impartial jury can be found?

I agree "Watching". This is just something for the Blacks to complain about. They do not know the circumstances or the facts in this case. No one does as yet. Convicting a man because he is white or Hispanic is the same as the blacks screaming "Profiling" as if all White and Hispanic people are the only ones who kill Blacks. Get a grip! Blacks kill more Blacks than any other races combined.

Is it true that Travon was working with Hacksaw Wimpee on the flagpole a few weeks ago?

If Travon Martin had not attacked Zimmerman he would be alive today.

The only people inserting race into the matter are those who disbelieve the police report with no other information available.
If the facts aren't on your side, argue racism... right?

It's hard to tell who's telling the truth, but one thing's for sure. It isn't Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson that's telling the truth. Neither one of them have a clue. They Never did. Remember Tawana Brawley? And the Duke University LaCrosse team?

How sad you would use the word "racism" in this case. It's a simple case of self defense. One of those young men was gonna die. And that is the sad part about this. BTW Zimmerman was helping young black youths in the community and his head was busted open by Travon Martin.

Martin caused his own dilemma, by attacking Zimmerman, plain and simple. He'd still be alive today if he didn't act like the punk that he was.
