    Heard bits and pieces of this story all weekend, that this 17 year old was gunned down by a neighborhood vigilante while walking home. The 17 year old was walking slowly with a 'hoodie" on.. he was carrying a soft drink in one had.

    Zimmerman was a zealous neighborhood watch guy, who felt compelled to diligently watch his neighbour hood.. he jumped out of his car in the gated community, confronted the kid, chased and then shot him.

    The local police did not press charges, however the police tape has now been released of the events and questions arise. Parents are asking for a FBI investigation, it seems the least they should have done is to convene a grand jury to see if a jury of Zimmerman's peers believe that charges should be filed.

    Not quite sure, but not following through with a grand jury investigation is concerning... let his peer decide whether he did wrong or not.

    Zimmerman, seems like a piece of work..

    Especially when the 911 operator tells him NOT to follow the kid as police were on their way.........Sounds like this guy was a wannabe cop who took it too far..from the audio....

    I'd like to know more about Zimmerman's criminal record. I'm not thrilled about upstanding private citizens carrying guns around. I was under the impression that convicted criminals were not given those licenses at all.

    then who should carry guns around -- or are you opposed to all carry permits?

    In a perfect world, the police only. This regards a license to carry concealed btw, not to carry your guy from point a to point b. I'm willing to accept concealed carry if its limited to people without criminal records; but I don't particularly like the idea at all.

    Interesting how the news views this event.. one might think that Fox is protecting their viewers from the event and that they are so dumb cannot process this information.

    That's pretty telling. Any stats on the network news(ABC, CBS, NBC)?

    He's actually considered Hispanic by his father and mother and say he is not racist. It turns out his mother is Latino. I really think this wanna be cop has been waiting to be one and was looking for the first excuse he could to use his power. Nonetheless, Fox News needs to exlain themselves.

    Thats because the shooter would more likely than not be dead or in jail using your senario.

    Playing the victim and speculation always trumps fact.. my guess is that you prefer filtered blogs who tell you what to believe, rather than thinking for yourself.

    The FBI is now involved...

    Quite a story going on right now in Boston, I don't think I want to talk about though.
    It's a pretty sad one, makes your blood boil.

    It reminds me of that mother down south that pushed her car in a lake with her two kids in it and watched them drown.

    I'm sure you could start a thread about it, since it is not related to the Trayvon Martin story.

    Not with my reputation, instead of commenting on the crime the Do-Gooders come after me for posting it, there are certain things in our politically correct society that they think should be covered up and not mentioned and boy oh boy this one would be a classic.

    I think you could discuss the crime without hitting on the aspects of the accused which would lead to the situation you refer to above.

    Or maybe you couldn't....
