    Now, I think he's most likely telling the truth. And, of course, unless the state can prove he's not, he'll be done with legal problems...but hardly done with problems. I really think, unless he leaves the area and changes his name, he could be assassinated. Nothing would surprise me here. This is a powder keg. For sure.
    Remember the Duke lacrosse case?

    The Duke lacrosse case is a common name given to a criminal investigation into a 2006 false accusation of rape made against three members of the men's lacrosse team at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.

    In 2005, 2.7% of African Americans became the victim of a violent crime, compared to 2.0% of Whites. African Americans were overall 35% more likely to sustain a violent crime. The likelihood of being murdered was drastically higher for African Americans.[23] In 2004 African Americans constituted roughly 13.4% of the general population,[citation needed] yet, nearly half, 49%, of all murder victims in 2005 were African American.

    Judging from what I've heard of this, I don't know that the investigating officers considered this a murder/manslaughter issue, but I'm sure that they're looking into this as much as they can with the limited evidence available. But I don't know how much satisfaction going to trial would provide any of the aggrieved; it would probably lead to further inflammation, and bigger problems.

    I'm sure you know that on April 10th it supposedly goes to the grand jury. What I personally didn't know is that those deliberations are private and not released to the public. So if they don't return a true bill, we still won't really have answers. Maybe we never will.

    If the prosecutor makes any real effort to present a credible indictment, then one will probably be issued. As one judge used to say, "I could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich."

    Yet, we have Zimmerman"s own words that he is following the kid. Zimmerman did not observe the kid on private property or harassing anyone. The kid was walking in the public street and tapes documented he had just been to the store and purchased candy.

    I have a kid that age ...that is skinny and gangly and likes to go to the store and get skittles. Zimmerman felt the kid was acting odd yet I view Zimmerman as acting really odd. He is not trained in law enforcement and had no reason whatsoever to brandish a lethal weapon at that kid.

    Honestly ...from a female standpoint ... that big dumb idiot guy sounds like a real pu$$y to have reached for his gun in light of the his own phone call and the facts ( Zimmerman could have defended himself easily with a kid weighing almost half of his own mass and Zimmerman was the one stalking and no witnesses that saw the supposed punch)

    My kid wears a hooded sweatshirt in spring weather ... if stalked by a guy that looked like Zimmerman he would be scared. If harassed enough or provoked he might throw a punch and he does not get in fights.

    Zimmerman deserves a fair trial ... yet the police are suspect in my opinion to simply have accepted Zimmerman's far out story.

    There needs to be a trial yet I suspect Zimmerman was not racist ... just a low self esteem idiot playing tough guy. The police ...? I do wonder if some racism was involved ... and the whole story of Zimmerman ... stinks.

    The media ... has reported new details and although I agree with media reporting from corporate networks is trash ... the parents had to get the media's attention in order to even have Zimmerman questioned.

    The police failed ... as they had no evidence and arrived to find the kid dead with no weapon and weighing almost half of Zimmerman's weight and knew that Zimmerman had followed the kid by his own admission to the 911 operator.

    Another thought ... I wondered if Zimmerman had serious mental health issues.

    Whatever happened ... no investigation? Get real ... if that were my kid I would have called every network I detest (Fox, MSNBC etc) and hired a private firm to investigate.

    If the investigating officers you're referring to are the Sanford Police, I don't think they're looking much into anything.

    Except ... there would be no investigation without the public outcry.

    I do know ... that Zimmerman followed an unarmed skinny kid on a public street and shot him dead and did not call an ambulance.
