That is not the bottom the line! The bottom line is that a 17 year old unarmed boy was killed and the police involved as well as there superiors failed miserably at doing their job.

Arrested for what? Was a crime committed? So far it appears that we have a case of self-defense.
Should the police arrest the guy because people like Obama try to interject race into this?
Really...I thought Zimmerman injected race into it when he called him a Coon.
But I'll bet you'll say he didn't say that
If someone is breaking into my house at night and I call the guy a coon, spic, chink, etc before I properly put 2 bullets to the chest and 1 to the head in a proficient military manner that doesn’t make it a hate crime nor does it diminish my justification for killing him in my own self defense.
You should go work for Jessie Jackson’s group.

Yeah, it's crap. Speaking of which, why are you misrepresenting the article you linked?

Who cares if he was a punk, he got murdered.
Zimmerman needs to go to jail.

What we do know, is that a 17 year old man serving a school suspension managed to beat an armed security guard senseless, make him call for help repeatedly, and then get killed. You're telling me this young man sounds innocent to you?

Ok, I'm sure you all have heard this more times than to care have had heard it.And I wish I could just supply an audio version,or one without pictures of a little kid. But if you listen to it.But there it is as reference.#1 He says at about 00:59 "He's coming towards me. He has his hand in his waist band ". I work at a place where I deal with thug kids every day,also I have been acquainted with several over the years. Black,white,hispanic,they come in all races and a great deal of them have one thing in common. They are very quick to start reaching in cargo pockets, or in their waistband,to act as though they have something in there, and they are going to pull it on you.It could be a take 5 bar,it could be the face for their cd player,it could be a can of arizona iced tea.Either way its not smart. And then to know that they will be gone before the police arrive,after behaving in such a way,is very frustrating! #2 at about 2:24 When the operator says "Are you following him?" "OK,We don't need you to do that" Hasn't anyone considered that perhaps the operator was telling Zimmerman such,with Zimmerman's safety in mind? I didn't hear "Do not pursue him" "Stop following him." I have a pretty good idea of how event may have transpired after all that,just based on past experiences.

The truth can be a disappointing thing. Your mentality is always to sympothize. Mine is to figure out what's going on, and then sympathize. I see no innocents in this case. Bottom line, two powder kegs crossed paths, and only one walked away. Whether or not the law will see it that way remains to be seen. The case is probably closed, because they likely got to the truth a long time ago.
