A hoodie worn by a black man doesnt make them criminals. Never thought Id see the day that a young man would be shot over skittles and a coke. Not sure if it was all racial injustice, but it was at least part that and a power trip. Very sad.

Why don't we have marches for John Sanderson? Haven't heard of him, have you. He's the white Mississippi college student shot and killed by three blacks last Saturday night.

He was killed because he was attacking some body . If he was beating my head in the concret I would have shot him also.

Even if he was fighting him, (which i dont believe), i would fight too, if someone was chasing me with a gun.

There's no evidence Zimmerman was flashing the gun. It was probably still concealed and Martin didn't even know Zimmerman was armed.

Not one single report says he was chasing him. It doesn't matter what you belive an eyewitness said he was attacking him.

If I know someone is chasing me with a gun, I'm going to run and hide.

Ok fair enough, but my point is, if youve listened to the 911 call, the operator asks Zimmerman if he's following him and he says yes and they tell him not to. Instead of waiting for the cops, he continued his pursuit and we all know how it ended. A boy packing skittles and ice tea, minding his own business is now dead, neighborhood watch means just that, he took it upon himself to play cop when all he should have done is call the real ones. Its not safe to have untrained people out there packing guns, doing police work.

What evidence is there that Zimmerman continued his pursuit after talking to the dispatcher?

All the circumstantial players here already made up their mind: Zimmerman Guilty. They even keep on posting a picture of him when he was 11 years old. At the time of his death he was 6’2” and about 160. They try to gain our symphaty by using an old picture where he looks happy, young and innocent. But they are the kind of people that prays for this kind of tragedy to promote racial divide and a populist agenda. The truth will come out soon and all the ones in the wrong will step aside the spotlight while the media hides their involvement. This is not what America should look like. The course of justice should be let run unimpeded and impartial.

If you would open your white hatey mind, you would listen to all the evidence and the entire dispatcher call!!!. he had stopped his pursuit ,no gun in sight, on his way back to his suv, the black droopy pants 6'2 160 lb person wacked him in the back of head, knocked him to the ground , on top of him, knocked his head into ground, and beat him. martin was trying to kill him & take his gun. there is a 13 yr old witness that saw it all. PLEASE open your racist mind and listen to all reports not just what you want to. this was a tragedy accident. plus did you forget that Martin had anger issues. he was suspended from school earlier this year for beating a bus driver, plus he was on 10 day suspension for drugs in pocket on school grounds. yeah, a real nice young man . NOT. but the welfare blacks always have to use any excuse to riot & mob. how about the 3 black men that killed a white man earlier this month. whites have more sense, they do not need to go show themselves & riot. plus they have jobs!!!!!!!!!!

Wearing a hoodie isn't wrong. Its those that wear the hood pulled up for concealment that raise suspicion. Highly doubting it was that blustering cold in central florida
