    No. We know that Zimmerman was looking for Martin and per the 911 call we know that Zimmerman had lost Martin and didnt know where he was.

    Martins GF a few days later said zimmerman had approached martin, zimmerman said right after the fact that Martin approached him. We don't know which is true. So please dont say that we do. But based on the 911 calls, zimmermans version seems more likely.
    We do know that Zimmerman had decided to follow Trayvon all over the place. SYG

    I blame Democrats insofar as they continue to foster an environment where we all have to tread carefully around black people. We're talking about a case where Zimmerman's account is substantiated by eye witnesses, medical treatment, and general observations by the police but is still dragging on because they could all be racist. It sure looks like this case is going to surpass even the OJ Simpson trial and investigation into the Duke lacrosse players in terms of ridiculousness. I keep hoping a prominent Democrat will come forward and say "hey, enough with the nonsense!" but none seems to want to bite the hand that feeds it.
    So true.I believe this case to be on a par with 9 11 as far as effect on our lives.
    Listen to your conscience....and let it sink in.

    He's pro uhc, donated 1 million bucks to Obama, supports gun control, taxing the rich, etc.....

    Why is it so imprtant to liberals that we take the liar at his word that he's a libertarian?

    Dood is a liberal who wants to end the drug war. Thats about it, his suggestion that he's a libertarian is just a ploy so he can act like a rebel.

    Why would a libertarian be so aligned with the party of big government? (I know, this is the part where you tell me that the Reps have expanded government as well, but not to the extent that Dems have and want to).

    Beyond that, law enforcement IS the last powerful bastion of racism in the united states, so it should be no surprise that it is in these kinds of cases, this is where the concern comes up. The fact that Sanford county's PD has had some weird racial issues in the past doesn't help anything, but I STILL don't think that that is the MOST important factor here.

    The most important factor is that it is obvious, to many of us, that none of this would have happened if Zimmerman--an adult--hadn't initated a confrontation with Martin--a minor.

    And the idea that an adult can start a confrontation with a teenager, start losing a fight with him, and shoot the kid in self-defense seems pretty crazy to most of us.

    I honestly can't imagine people defending Zimmerman so vehemently in these circumstances if the other political factors weren't involved.

    Since when do people RUSH to the defense of a killer? people ALWAYS rush to convict KNOWN killers. There is nothing abnormal about that.

    There is something strange about RUSHING to the defense of a known killer, and RUSHING to defend his claim to self-defense. especially when all of the facts haven't come out.
    What I've seen is not so much a defense of Zimmerman, but more people saying "we weren't there, let's look at all the facts objectively" and if I have "defended" Zimmerman, it's from claims that he should just be shot on sight. It's funny that after the Ft. Hood shooting we were exhorted by Obama (among others) not to "rush to judgment," but, in this case, where there actually is a potential for a legit self defense claim, the very same people (including Obama) do not say anything about "violent rhetoric" (as they did right after the Giffords shooting) when someone has actually put a bounty on Zimmeman's head. Why do you suppose that is?
