Trayvon Martin shooting.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoot...Trayvon_Martin

I want to know how you can follow somebody, confront them, and then claim self-defense for fatally shooting them.

Never underestimate human gall, or stupidity.

If this self righteous murderer-vigilante doesn't go to prison there will be riots.

A lot of defenders are now saying since he didn't have a receipt, obviously he stole the candy he had and therefore obviously he was a crazed thug who attacked Zimmerman.

The whole thing is just incredibly sad, both the fact that it happened as well as how it was initially handled, thankfully the justice department seems to be doing a good job now that they have taken over.

People are also saying that since he is half hispanic it clearly couldn't have been racially motivated. I've even heard people say that Trayvon should have identified himself, said who he was, what he was doing, and where he was going, so clearly it is all Trayvon's fault.

This clearly couldn't be any sort of hate crime because no one is racist in Florida...

I'll hold my breath until there is a conviction.

Apparently he was bailed but has to wear a tag until trial.

Is it really safe for him to be out on bail? I mean, with all the uproar this has caused, did they not think that keeping him locked up might have been more appropriate for his safety?

I don't think that people who are outraged about a vigilante murdering somebody are going to become vigilantes and murder him.

Perhaps not murder him no but it doesn't mean he will be totally safe.

Whether or not he is convicted, there will be riots. There always are.

And if he is not convicted, he will be shot. Can't say he doesn't deserve it, though.
