Questions for you. What did Zimmerman see in Trayvon to think there was something wrong with him? Why did Zimmerman ignore the police dispatcher's request not to follow Trayvon? Why didn't Zimmerman stay near the mailboxes and wait for the police like he said he'd do? Why did Zimmerman fail to look at the situation from Trayvon's perspective, that Trayvon probably took off as he did because a strange man seemed to be stalking him? Why did he shoot Trayvon after several seconds of Trayvon pleading for help?
It will be very interesting to see the results of the Justice Department Investigation into the Police Chief (you will have of course noted that he does not have his job back) and the District Attorney, that between them set Zimmerman free the night of the killing.

The Special Prosecutor who decided to charge Zimmerman last week, conducted her own investigation and may have some evidence that wasn't brought to light during the first investigation. If she doesn't then she probably shouldn't have pressed charges. But we'll find out soon enough whether or not she has a strong case...
The attorney for George Zimmerman has requested a new judge in the Trayvon Martin case, claiming she has a conflict of interest because of her husband's law firm, Central Florida News 13 reports.
Circuit Judge Jessica Recksiedler is married to a partner at the firm of noted Orlando lawyer Mark NeJame, whom CNN has hired to offer analysis of the case.
The judge will consider the motion by Zimmerman's attorney, Mark O'Mara, and rule later.
Can you explain what you mean by that? You have nothing to back it up, so why go there?
Conversely, if Zimmerman is aquitted, or found not guilty, you can expect a Rodney King verdict replay, and you know it. Morons will make their displeasure known through violence. Rodney King, remember? Better folks have strokes than take it out on businesses and hapless folks driving through an intersection.
And even thats a reflection on a minority of people.
The real issue is how to form a jury. Those folks will be named after the trial, and would you want to be one of them if the concensus is not guilty? We need people that are willing to convict or find not guilty. If theres a conviction, those jury members walk away unscathed. If they find Zimmerman not guilty, they risk the wrath of a segment of the population thats already fired up and are demanding Zimmerman be jailed.
I saw one of the black leaders on tv saying that the main issue was that if a black man had acted in the same manner as Zimmerman, the black man would have been arrested right away.
Lets say for the sake of argument that is true.
Assuming that position, why don't black leaders/citizens demand justice, with rallies, protests and so forth, when a seemingly guilty black man is NOT arrested for a killing in the black community.
I can't recall a such rallies, perhaps I missed the news of the day of those rallies.
Are such rallies only reserved for incidents involving white citizens.
The police bring charges to HOLD a suspect, the States Attorney decides whether or not to prosecute.
Like the poster said it happens all the time.
Police my bring 6 charges in a case, the States Attorney my decide to try only one.
Regardless, the media doesn't like to report on black-on-anything violence, because those stories are essentially "dog bites man" stories (plus, they don't want to be seen as fueling racism). The relatively rare and sensational case of white-on-black violence is considered "man bites dog." I don't agree with it, but that's the way it is.

story on Locals about two white men who were the subject of racial slurs and a physical attack. If the Sun is going to publish that much, why not state that the two suspects arrested so far are black (which I found out through the Maryland Judiciary Case Search) and what the race(s) of the remaining at-large suspects is?
