So I heard today that he was convicted of 2nd degree muder of Trayvon Martin. Have you been following this story? Do you think he shot and killed in self defense or not and why?

He's been booked into jail, and the charge is 2nd degree murder, but he hasn't been convicted yet.

He shot and killed a 17 year old boy who was unarmed. I'm not saying the kid wasn't a punk, but there aren't many teenagers whose parents are wealthy that aren't punks at 17. Doesn't mean he deserved to die. The evidence will show what it will show and the verdict will be rendered. It's all we can ask for with the way our system works. I think his parents are happy that he's at least been charged. That in itself was a monumental step and him turning himself in is even better.

Ciao. Ciao.
I hope this case encourages people to reexamine the racial fears/discrimination that is still very present in society, as well as how rational it really is to maintain these sorts of "stand your ground" self-defense laws. Personally while I don't oppose gun ownership, guns for self-defense do frequently lead to ambiguous situations like this that leave a lot of people heartbroken.

I won't pass judgment on the actual case, but it also bugs me that so many people are ready to jump to conclusions on either side of things. What happened to innocent until proven guilty?

this case had nothing to do with race. He was watching his neighborhood and called 911 when he spotted a person walking through the neighborhood at 3 in the morning. He shot after the kid was on top of him beating the crap out of him. FOX news and all the rest have twisted the facts around to push their agenda. One of them just got caught for editing the 911 tapes to make it sound like Zimmerman was racist.

If the cops and the DA felt like he had murdered someone in cold blood, they would have put him in jail the night it all happened. This DA that took over is doing it because they are getting pushed by the protesters.

Questions that should be getting asked are "Why have none of the NEW Black Panthers been arrested for putting a bounty on Zimmermans Head?" "Why have no charges been brought up on Spike Lee for Twittering the address he thought was Zimmermans, and risking the lives of the older couple who lived there?" There are 100's more questions that are way more important, but are getting over looked. You should be looking at those in the media who are screaming racial injustice, they are the ones preaching hate and violence.

This case has been yet another one that show the possible detriment of Internet culture on the law. Our justice system runs by the idea "innocent until proven guilty," but the American public is able to quickly judge innocent or guilty based on what little information the media provides (or how the media spins that info). Zimmerman feared for his life before he was arrested because people rallied around what info they could get from the media.

I think about Casey Anthony. Despite the fact that a fair and legal trial was held and she was not found guilty, but there was an uproar from the country thanks to the media firestorm.

I have a lot of questions about the Zimmerman case, but I fear for both him and our legal system in general now that news channels and social media have begun taking people to trial, so to speak, within hours of some wrongdoing hitting the Net.

If Trayvon had been a white boy in the same situation, he'd still be alive.

Zimmerman had NO right to leave his house, with a fucking GUN and hunt down a black young man who happened to be where Zimmerman thought he had no right to be.

Trayvon was NO threat to Zimmerman. The police told Zimmerman NOT to follow the boy and let them take care of it. It was a self appointed vigilante who targeted a young man who he thought didn't belong in his neighborhood. If Zimmerman had stayed in his house, kept his gun in the lock box and minded his own business the young Trayvon wouldn't be dead and there would be no problem.

Zimmerman wouldn't have to "fear for his life" if he had minded his own business. The guy called the police once or twice a week and ran around with a gun thinking he was some kind of "hero." He wasn't a police officer and he had NO business "policing" his neighborhood, except for calling the police on the rare occasion that there was a real threat. I'm guessing that one or two "threats" a week were all in his mind.

Zimmerman "feared" for his life? Trayvon lost his. Which is more serious?


Of course it's about race.
