What was the problem with the medical examiner?

The night it happened the police viewed it
as self defense. Zimmerman was not charged.
The police chief agreed.

It was not until Sharpton and Jackson came to
Florida with their "race crayons" that this turned
into a media circus.

President Obama added to the flames
with his comment.

The state of Florida bowed to the pressure.

Thank you for your suggestion, but I think I will try to stay around to
at least add some different viewpoints and commentary to the topics.

What did find so untruthful about my comment on the Zimmerman trial?

I'm stunned that you stuck around for more than a drive-by, so credit to you.

I think it is disingenuous to imply that further investigation could have only turned up a different result because of political pressure. Post hoc, ergo proctor hoc.

Do you agree that it might be hard to make an ultimate determination only hours after the incident, before the police on the scene had access to Zimmerman's dispatch call and the 911 calls and witness accounts of neighborhood residents?

First, the condescending way you mention Sharpton and Jackson is less than flattering for you. Second, simply because they showed up does not mean that the Zimmerman case did not deserve more public scrutiny. Third, even if their entrance may have been when it turned into a media circus (though media began paying more attention to the story well before Jackson and Sharpton uttered a word about it), the media circus is irrelevant to the facts of the case. And the facts of the case are sufficient enough to go to trial.

You're right.

After all, you were a slave once too. So you'd know that it was Trayvon's family who pursued the case, not Sharpton and Jackson.

It is disingenuous to suggest that this case was being treated strictly as a legal matter. The media and various public figures have pushed conclusions without knowledge of the facts.

On both sides of the issue, yes.

The fact there are sides at all in a murder case is reprehensible.

No one has suggested as such. How could it be? The case touches on uniquely American issues -- race, crime, violence, racial profiling, cowboy mentalities, and most especially the obsession with firearms

This I can't understand. Someone who keeps a sidearm on him legally with a concealed carry permit in an area with a high crime rate = firearm obsession? I don't know if George Zimmerman is telling the truth or not. But if he is, and he didn't have his gun on him, Travon Martin could be the one sitting in the defendants chair for the murder of Zimmerman.

Quite frankly if I lived in Sanford, Florida I myself would definitely be considering a concealed carry permit myself. Fortunately I live in Vermont where there are very few gun laws and no violent crime.

Clearly what this country needs then are fewer gun laws and more Ben & Jerry's.

More accurately, supporters of various social policy positions have used this case to advance their respective causes.

Which is how any sort of social change comes about.
