i think that if there was any chance that Zimmerman, may be guilty the police would not have released him.

I think Zimmerman needs to turn himself in, from what I've read it seems like he is sure he is innocent, so he shouldn't have a problem letting the police investigate more to clear his name. It's very unfortunate that he was released so quickly based solely on his self-defense claim.

Sounds like profiling based on race and clothes. Probably would not have been followed and approached if Martin was white and wearing a hoodie.

Let's consider the following scenario. Zimmerman is a 28 year old black man claiming self-defense after shooting a 17 year old unarmed white kid. Would the police have arrested him? It is human to react and relate based on many factors that may or may not be fair. Not saying it's right or wrong.....it's saying just human to make mistakes. There is lots to be learned if we just tak4108e time to dissect what has occured in Sanford, FL.

It sounds like it in the doctored version NBC played. We ought not lend much credibility to our media.

""As exposed by Fox News and media watchdog site NewsBusters, the “Today” segment took this approach to a key part of the dispatcher call:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. He looks black.

Here’s how the actual conversation went down:

Zimmerman: This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about.

Dispatcher: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?

Zimmerman: He looks black."

Makes you look just a tad DUH.

Its not a racist issue. Blacks need to get over it. Its a new world and the racists crap just don't cut it no more.

Gated community robbed 12 times. Residents living in fear. What was he doing in a gated community? Zimmerman, did not recognize him & had every right to follow him to protect his community. Had Zimmerman died from a subdural head injury Trayvon would have been charged as a minor & probably received little or no jail time. And Zimmerman would have been dead w/o any fanfare!
Zimmerman actions were appropriate. He defended his family, community & his own life!

Trayvon died because he assaulted Zimmerman? He was pounding Zimmerman's head against concrete.
Zimmerman acted in self defense, and that's the law in America! I heard that there hasn't been a robbery in that community since the shooting.

We have been needing only the truth, like what is in the police report. Not the LYING the media, Sharpton, Jackson, and the rest of the gang was been spreading!
Mr. Zimmerman has proof and witnesses to what he is saying is the TRUTH! GOD BLESS HIM AND HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS LIKE MR. OLIVER. WE PRAY GOD CONTINUE TO VINDICATE HIM!

It's not against the law to follow someone, not recognized in a gated community. White or black.
However, it was against the law for Trayvon to assault Zimmerman. The wound on Zimmerman's head is noted and consistent with a violent assault. Zimmerman acted in self defense, documented by the fact he hasn't been arrested! I would follow someone in a gaited community not recognized after 12 robberies. That's common sense & not against the law. We all the the right to protect our families and communities!

Zimmerman was arrested today. So now is the idea that a person cannot defend himself from getting his head bashed in to concrete if the person doing the bashing is black? Don't bank on it. There will be terrible fall out to this decision. This is OJ trial reversed and the civil implications are enormous.

I believe that the judicial system will find Zimmerman guilty of either manslaughter or second degree murder. Even if the evidence is overwhelmingly strong in Zimmermans favor he will still be found guilty because those responsible for the ruling (judge or panel of jurors) don't want to be held accountable for an innocent verdict. There will be race rioting way worse than this country saw after the Rodney King verdict if Zimmerman is found innocent of any wrongdoing. I think Zimmerman is screwed!

The white boy who was set on fire by blacks because of his race. By definition it was a hate crime. Anyone know Channon Christian and Chris Newsom?
On Saturday, January 6, 2007, Channon Christian, 21, and Christopher Newsom, 23, of Knoxville, Tennessee, went on a date from which they would never return. On their way to the home of another couple, they were carjacked and kidnapped. Over the next 24 hours they were beaten, gang-raped, tortured, and murdered.

If Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom had been black and their killers white, everyone in America would know their names. Because they were white and their killers are black, their fate has been shrouded in a thick silence that has given rise to a host of gruesome rumors. Their story highlights the strange and twisted nature of race relations in America. There's a double standard in this country and it's bullshit. Soon as I'm able, I'm leaving this country for good.
