For me the only real game changers would be if:

a) It comes to light that Trayvon really was up to criminal activity at the time
b) It comes to light that Travyon was actually armed as well.

All these other "revelations" about Trayvon and his suspension, and Trayvon attacking Zimmerman don't mean a hell of a lot to me.

I take it you mean both a and b

I have been the victim of having my personal property stolen several times
I don't believe I would have ever been justified in killing someone to protect property

if you listen to the 911 call, that was the accusation, and the police said they would send a police car right over

The accusation was that he was 'on drugs' or something. Have you never seen anyone that's smoked weed before? Are you telling me you'd be able to tell from a distance in the dark? When people say someone must be 'on drugs', they aren't talking about weed

This convergence of race-hustlers, media whores, political opportunists, quick-to-judge pundits and assorted agitators is reminding me of the Jena 6 controversy as well as the Duke lacrosse case.

The school records of a minor are protected by state and federal law. Parents would have to sign a consent form allowing release. So if the police leaked it, whatever their motives might be, or someone at the school was paid off-it was illegal. Even if a minor is deceased, there is plenty of precedent that allows for those records to remain legally private. He was never arrested and never charged with anything criminally.

You mean Michael Savage, Michelle Mauckin, Laura Inghram and Rush?

Yeah, I agree.

the problem is we don't know the majority of facts, we only know assumptions made by the press, who slant the story to fit whatever will get the most ratings... so they call an apartment complex a "gated community" and call a hispanic person "white hispanic" as to make the story more outrageous than it needs to be... then those on the right get annoyed at that side and start to assassinate the character of a 17 year old kid, who we know nothing more about than that he got in trouble in high school... how many of us didn't get in trouble in high school?

the likely story is that a douchebag racist hispanic neighborhood watch wanna-be cop decided to take matters in his own hands, picked a kid who wasn't scared and would run away, got into a tussle, and shot him. that's tragic enough in it's own right... it doesn't need to be inflamed by the media anymore than that.

there's only one fact that we really know... this kid shouldn't be dead.

Well he was carrying that legally. His background of "run ins" with the law wasn't enough to prevent that. Why a neighborhood watch guy was "patrolling" with a gun, well I think that might be the real problem. That doesn't sound like it would be standard practice.

With any crime or situation like this that escalates, if that's what happened here, people could bring up the general issue of abundance and availability of guns.

we've got too many people who treat the constitution the same way that religious wackos treat the bible or the quran... as it's the word, unchangeable, couldn't possibly be wrong, must live by it 100%.

the founding fathers designed it to be a living, breathing document. not the word of god.

While in Florida, I saw just a bit of a front page article on a local paper that mentioned it was not part of the neighborhood watch procedure/rules to patrol with a gun.

(Full disclosure: I didn't read the full article, but from the bit I saw, I think I have that right.)
