I think that there is a lot more to this story than they are telling us. There must be a damn good reason that the local police classified this as justifiable self defense right away after it happened. I wonder why we are not hearing anything about this kids criminal background, I'm bettin' there is some.

I agree with you bob. I have been voicing this same opinion and have been catching hell for it.

The cop ran a criminal background check on the kid and he was clean. He was on suspension from school for some reason when he was killed. The shooter has an arrest and has had a restraining order on him. I suggest that the shooter move out of that state if he is not jailed as there is a bounty on his head.

What in the world was that kid doing wearing a hoodie, carrying a lethal bag of skittles and deadly ice tea in that particular neighborhood at that particular time of evening in an exclusive gated community?

Zimmerman is a hero. But Barrack HUSEIN Obama, the illegal Kenyan, seems to abhor American heros.

Perhaps HUSEIN Obama will redistribute a million or so dollars to the parents of the hoodie kid in restitution from "a grateful nation."

ABO in November!

I hate those two vultures. They make money off any incident involving blacks and incite the violence that usually happens after. Of course they only show up if the crime reached all major news outlets.

And those two idiots will make sure they get plenty of face time. They are bottom feeders.

The "reverends" as they claim to be, are worse than the ones committing the crimes. Like I said the guy who shot the kid has a bounty on his head by a few gangs. And that's never a good thing!

Thank God for Revs. Jackson and Sharpton, I hope they can find justice for the Trayvon Martin family.

It's funny how the media shows childhood pictures of this guy to make him seem innocent. This was a 6'3 black man with gold teeth out at 3am,suspended from school who assaulted the shooter first. Then the media tries to convince the public that the shooter called him a coon, when he really said punk. http://s1151.photobucket.com/albums/o628/tray...

3am? Really? I believe he was pronounced dead at about 7:30pm. This 6'3 "man" just turned 17 two weeks prior to his death. Whatever way the media and people want to spin the story, it was an unnecessary killing. The kid was walking back from the store. Two facts we know for sure is he was on his cell during this time and the shooter was told to not follow him. Even if the kid beat his ass, he was probably defending himself against a man with a gun who had been following him. Let's just be real here and quit looking for a reason to blame the victim who was minding his own business.

I am being real!! He probably stopped trayvon because he never seen him in the neighborhood. When he stopped him he probably acted like a punk and gave him a while bunch of black shit talking then assaulted the shooter, mounting him and beating him unmercifully. If I have a gun and I'm in fear for my well being like the shooter was, then I would do the same!! This was a case of self defense. Trayvon assaulted the wrong guy. If Zimmerman, or whatever his name is, is guilty of anything it is racial profiling.

That's a nice story you just told. But we both know it's total BS what you just wrote. It seems to me you want so bad to find the black kid guilty. So ignore the facts of the case we have so far and just talk nonsense, right? I base my opinions and judgments on facts. And so far it's not looking good for the gun toting wannabe hero. His plan exploded in his face. Who calls 911 46 times? Sounds pretty extreme to me and a bit unstable. Anyway, you believe what you want and so will I.

Actually it doesn't look bad. An eye witness has confirmed his story. Thats a fact. He was assaulted by trayvon before he shot him. That's a fact. It has an will continue to be confirmed as self defense.

Okay. Whatever you say. Unarmed kid vs armed man. Kid killed, but still his fault. Case closed.

I won't pretend to know all the facts, but black or white, if someone 6'-3" attacks me and I am legally carrying a gun and am in fear for my life, you're damn RIGHT I'm gonna shoot the punk that is attacking me.
I wonder why Sharpton and Jackson aren't crying out for justice for David James, an unarmed Iraqi war veteran who was gunned down in broad daylight right in front of his daughter, at a childrens park by Trevor Dooley, who happens to be Black. Somebody wanna tell me where all the hoodie rallys are for David James? Where is the "bounty" for Dooley? Where is the outrage by the NAACP?
