If anyone is trolling its the media . You want to blame whites and hispanics for something a white nor hispanic did but ignore the obvious.

Nice way to be part of the problem

Whites and latinos do not want to claim him as part of their race. Judging by Zimmerman's mug I'd say he looks white. He maybe claiming he's latino now to avoid the white on black racism claims. To me he is a low life scum bag.

IMO, he had to pull the gun out to shoot him in the chest.

And my opinion is that when you've pulled a gun, you intend to fire it. Whether you pull the trigger or not, there is no more "accidental" discharge. The only time there's an accident is when it's purely mechanical and not touching anyone.

The man deserves first degree murder, not man slaughter. He made a plan, he followed the kid, and he shot him.

Looks latino to me.

Either way, it should not matter
what color he is. He was putting
his life on the line for the community..

Zimmerman looks like a white dude to me. "Putting his life on the line for the community"? please explain.

I am about a 1/4 native american, yet I'm considered white. Zimmerman is no more latino than i am native american.

Does not matter what color he is really, although
reporting a white man shoots black kid is
the only way it is being reported, which is not true.

Albeit, this guy made a mistake, he was trying to help
his community from the recent break-ins, and robberies
happening in the neighborhood.. Should he get a metal?
Yes, IF this was a real murderer/robber he would of,
or if he would of saved someones life.

It was a terrible accident, AT WORST second degree manslaughter
and no more then 3 years in prison..

Wow. Have you heard the 911white tapes? The neighbors testimony that the boy was screaming for help nefore he was murdered?

You share the same attitude as the Sanford cops who investigated the incident. Zimmerman will get what he deserves.

The thing you fail to understand with these laws is they have become popular and exist because there aren't adequate protections in place for those legitimately defending themselves. Granted this particular law is way too wide open for this kind of nonsense. As details of this come out, it has become increasingly clear that this was in fact racially motivated. And the "stand your ground" law shouldn't even apply. He had no business following this kid to begin with let alone the authority to confront him. But keep your focus where it belongs because outlawing acts of self defense is not the answer. Narrow the scope of this particular self defense law and get this guy behind bars where he belongs.


I'm not saying get rid of the entire self defense laws and whatnot, what I'm saying is that they need to get rid of the "stand your ground" law and/or put a new law in place for legitimate self defense cases. This law is way to wide open, and puts cases like this one in the gutters. People in Florida, with this law, can just go around killing anyone they want to when they get into any sort of altercation without repercussions. That's not right. That's not the way things should work.

What repulsive justification. Doesn't matter what "color" either of them were, a 17 year old boy is dead at the hands of an evil, paranoid prick who needs to be charged with first degree murder.


Dispatcher: “Are you following him?”
Zimmerman: “Yeah” Dispatcher:
“OK, we don’t need you to do that.”


According to neighbors, Zimmerman was “fixated on crime and focused on young, black males.”


Zimmerman was not a member of a registered Neighborhood Watch group. Zimmerman also violated basic Neighborhood Watch guidelines by carrying a weapon.

I couldn't agree more. He had the intent to shoot him by drawing the weapon in the first place. According to some articles, there was an altercation that happened after he drew his weapon. It's rather obvious that Martin was scared for his life (which he should have been), so he tried to defend himself against the monster that is Zimmerman.

There are some cases of accidental discharge, though, without it being mechanical. I know someone personally who shot his brother in the foot while cleaning the gun. Accidental discharges do happen, however, this case was not one of them.

And you are absolutely right. He did make a plan. He followed the kid, he disobeyed the dispatcher, confronted Martin for absolutely nothing, and shot the poor, unarmed kid.

And you know this how, exactly? Trayvon Martins mother has come out and identified her son, Trayvon, as the person screaming for help in the 9-11 tapes.

How exactly was he trying to help by shooting a kid that had nothing on him but money, skittles, and ice tea? How is that a threat? The kid was walking home from the convenience store, not breaking into someones home. If he truly wanted to "help", he should have let the police do their job instead of taking matters into his own hands and shooting an unarmed 17 year old kid.

Please, that would take a pre-meditation,
this obviously was not pre-meditated
he called 9-11 for crying out loud.

A tragic mistake. Keep pushing that 1rst degree
murder crap and he will be charged with nothing..

NO WAY they over charge like that IF he is even charged..
Like i said, second degree manslaughter
AT BEST, and I think the guy did what he thought was right..
A mistake.

It's actually pretty easy to charge him with 1st degree. The 911 dispatch told him not to pursue but he kept going even though they told him police would be there in moments.
