That means Zimmerman was in the wrong and should do time.

A lot of times it's your posts and posts by others like you that give me some hope for this site. It seems to me that a lot of people on this site have never even met a black person before and are totally ok with profiling someone as a "thug" and therefore blaming Trayvon for his own murder, entirely based on his appearance.
There's one quote in this entire situation that sums it up, and it came from the 911 operator that Zimmerman called. Zimmerman tells the operator that he's going to follow Trayvon and the operator responds...

Simple fact is, when Zimmerman made the call, he didn't KNOW the race at first, and stated this. You can listen to the recording yourself. He reported suspicious behavior. Plus, all the evidence and two witnesses show that Martin attacked Zimmerman. That is the key issue. That makes this self defense.
OK, is he White, Black, or Hispanic?
He looks black.
Yeah, now he’s coming toward me. He’s got his hands in his waist band.
And he’s a black male.[1:03]
These assholes. They always get away.
The back entrance.
[It sounds like Zimmerman says under his breath, ‘F-ing coons’ at 2:22]

If a white kid did it, it wouldn't be seen as negative
I don't get it.
What a bunch of crap. Any kid white or black dressed like that unknown to locals would be seen as suspicious.
