#2 Even if George Zimmerman is arrested, tried and acquitted, he will be a marked man for the rest of his life (or at least until Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson can find another cause to support).
At this point, no one knows all the facts, except George Zimmerman. All we have is partial police reports, rumors, and demagoguery. Zimmerman has been tried and convicted by the press, and sentenced to death by the New Black Panthers.

#3 If it had been a white teenager who was shot, and a 28-year-old black guy who shot him, the black guy would have been arrested.
He would have looked like George W.'s son?

#4 Not exactly Rambler. We have an eye witness, doctors reports on Zimmermans injuries, autopsy on the hoody, back ground checks and most importantly, Due Process of law to review all of the above.
Also, we have a mob that is wantong to throw Due Process out the window and demand society adhere to mob rule.
All the ones who are trying to gin up mob rule should be the first ones arrested, prosecuted/impeached and/or deported back to Indonesia or Kenya becauyse every one of these agitators are listed on the visitors log of the oval office.

#5 I haven't liked the media acting as judge and jury. Why are they using such a young photo of Treyvon? Zimmerman is Hispanic, it seems the media wants Zimmerman to be white. Calling him a white hispanic? Why aren't the panthers being prosecuted for their threats. For what's his name giving out Zimmermans address putting that family in danger.
Without having all the facts; just from what I've heard I don't think Zimmerman can use the self defense law if he was following him. But without knowing all the facts we don't know anything yet.
To see all of these so called leaders making racist remarks it really shows their stupidity. This shows how some of our elected officials act deciding policy, frightening actually.

Hell, that could be next week. The secret to being a good huckster is knowing when the game is up, and moving on to the next score.
Just ask Tawana Brawley.

#8 The media malpractice involved in this case might benefit Zimmerman as folks will be looking for a mugshot looking white guy and not reality. Just change his name to his Hispanic side and he will fade away.

#9 In the NBC segment, Zimmerman says: "This guy looks like he's up to no good. He looks black."
The full version, though, unfolds like this:
Zimmerman: "This guy looks like he's up to no good, or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about."
911 operator: "Okay. And this guy, is he white black or Hispanic?"
Zimmerman: "He looks black."
It's as if they're pushing a predetermined narrative regardless of the evidence or something.
UPDATE: Reader Michael Costello emails: "ABC did the same thing. Aren't these the same people who accused Andrew Breitbart of deceptive editing?" Yeah, go figure.
