I apologize, I am taking a break on this issue. The whole thing is crazy blown out of the sane realm I will wait for the CHAOS that follows either way. Guilty or Not It will be something and the TPTB will be stronger and we will be weaker.

That's all fine and good, BUUUUT he was following him with a gun. What was his intent, following him with that gun?

One time I had a house in a gated subdivision and there was a man in a dark car out front watching my house. I walked up to the car and asked what he was doing aqnd he said getting numbers. I said do you have a permit to be here and he just looked at me. So I went back to my house told my wife to call 911 and I took my truck to the guard shack and asked the guard. She said that she called the Sherriff's office 30 min ago cause he ran the gate.
So I went back to the house (in a panic) the man was stopped at the stop sign at the end of our road, I rolled my window down and asked him to wait that the sheriff was on his way. The man drove towards the guardshack at this time I call 911 to report he is leaving the subdivision. I gave discription and color along with the tag #'s I followed him in my truck for 45 miles when 911 told me to quit following him that they would get him and there was a deputy at my house for a report. So I turned around. They lost the man and he had an unregistered car that was bought at an auction several months earlier with cash. The next monday I get to work and my office phone was dead. The repair man said my line was cut and wire was stripped on the ends. The man was tapping my phone lines. The police did nothing.......... So I bought a pistol cause the following thursday my front door was ajar.....I was robbed by a white man.
I listened to the 911 tape. I don't care about the photos, Zimmerman followed Martin, he's guilty at least of manslaughter, it doesn't matter if Martin beat the hell out of him, he was following Martin, he started the confrontation.

The POLICE did not tell him to discontinue following Trayvon. The telephone DISPATCHER told him not to follow Trayvon. The DISPATCHER is not a POLICEMAN.
What's wrong w/ you? Zimmerman before he even crossed paths w/ TV....called 911... 911 said..." what? Your following him?.... NO.... Stop...turn around...go home!!!! You do not have permission. That in itself...makes him guilty of murder!!!!!! Nothing after those words were spoken, matters.

I believe that Zimmerman should have been arrested though. An event happened which ended in murder.
The 911 tapes possibly have Zimmerman saying "coons", but that hasn't been submitted into evidence, and the police didn't know what he said at first. So post event, there is evidence of a racially motivated crime.
But just the fact that there was no arrest in this case at first has me baffled, just by the initial event I think it warranted at least him in cuffs and a hearing. But a judge who knows more then me disagrees.
