You'll have to excuse my ignorance as I'm from the UK and have not really been following this case. But wondered even if the shooting was in self defense, does the shooting still have to be investigated?
I would have assumed that there would have to be an investigation to prove it was self defense.

You are mistaken, 90% of AA's want justice. That's all.
People, I was generalizing and exaggerating to call attention to the issue, can you not pick up on that?
Justice, huh? And what are blacks' idea of "justice" in this case? An eye for an eye? So far it looks like self-defense. Would not a black person in GZ's position enjoy the same courtesy if they found themselves having to defend their life? Don't even suggest that it wouldn't happen.
There is no such thing as self-defense when you actively pursue another individual.
911 operator to Zimmerman:
"We don't need you to do that."
End of story.
I don't care what color you are - if your gun goes off and someone else ends up dead, it needs to be investigated.edit on 10-4-2012 by Hawking because: (no reason given)

without sounding callous, isn't it coincidental that zimmerman creates a website meant to draw in money in the same week he fires his attorneys? no attorneys, means no retainer fees. as soon as zimmerman found out he is probably not going to be charged, he realized cut your possible losses (literally the cash sucking legal aid), and keep the money.
this has nothing to do with whether he was in the wrong or right,or even if charges should or should not be filed. it has only to do with best scenario for him.

Personally, I think Zimmerman is in Mexico or Puerto Rico. The article I read this morning said that his lawyers have stated that he's lost a lot of weight, so he could probably blend in well in either of these locations without being recognized.
(Either this or he's chillin' at Pops' house.)
