Zimmerman chose to ignore the police and to follow Trayvon and to engage in some kind of struggle with Trayvon, all the while carrying a deadly weapon. Under those circumstances you cannot claim simple self-defense, whoever struck the first blow or whatever Trayvon did or didn't do. His behavior shows he was ready to use his weapon and he did use it. This is premeditated murder.

Here were have initially two law abiding citizens living in the same subdivision, unknown to each other. One is on the phone talking to his girlfriend, and the other to the police!! They both are conscious of each other an in a certain amount of fear. This is were everything changes, The one with the gun has the upper hand, because he is confrontational and feels empowered, then shows it. Confronts, push, scuffle and then shoots the young boy. Murder, yeah, first degree!!! He turns into a self absorbed hateful vigilante when he choose to ignore the dispatcher's request "to not follow his so called suspect"! What was the purpose of him calling 911, if his intentions was to ignore the request of the law. Being a Neighborhood Watchmen made him feel in conjunction with Florida Law, above the LAW. This law is a problem law, it seems to give the license to kill. In Zimmerman case, he did!! This type of law should be held accountable always by a jury, not a single judge or Sheriff. When any of these entities have a blind eye for the law that is a major problem. Because it sets forth vigilante actions, overpowering the Governing Law of Order. Which says what is the purpose of Judicial Law. This law isn't a bad law, it just needs Judicial restrictions, and guidelines that don't have undermining loopholes.

I don't recall outrage when someone dropped their concealed gun in public place and killed an innocent person. The police allowed that person to walk and we were not allowed to know anything about the details of those people. Strange. If it had been a white kid killed by a security guard or police would it even make the news? What happened to the kid was wrong just pointing out theres is alot injustice not being dealt with in Fla. Did anyone even investigate why a woman minding her own buisness died in public place in jacksonville and no charges of any kind? How about dealing with that issue with investigation as well, by the press.

I dont know what was going through Zimmerman's head but i feel he should be charged with murder. I am a strong supporter of protecting yourself and your property but when the 911 operator tells him not to follow the person he was calling about he should have listened. It is not anyone place to play police. I say it is cold blooded murder and he should have to face the charges for. My heart goes out to the family and friends effected.

This was child abuse and murder plain and simple. The police are covering for this man who killed Travon for no reason at all other than being black.

We teach our children to be aware and cautious of strangers…This child was in fear….Not knowing who this man was, or what his intentions were….I'm appalled that the Sheriff's Dept. is this clueless!
