    Not everyone can fight.

    Handsome kid. Such a shame.

    I'm sorry, that was unclear. Police interpreting rather than enforcing.

    Read "enforcement of the law" as opposed to "law enforcement" as a euphemism for police (noun).

    Ok. Thanks for the clarification.

    As one of the earlierst posts suggested:

    The police is not sorting through the evidence, the police is trying to exonerate Zimmerman from any wrongdoing. See the police 'correcting' a witness that it was Zimmerman crying for help, not the kid.



    BTW, this same Florida law actually gives anyone a legal excuse to shoot and kill Zimmerman, since he can reasonably be deemed a danger to you as an individual, based these events.

    If the state of Florida fails to act (as it is prone to do) I hope Zimmerman is charged under Federal hate crime statute(s).

    If any police officers have done this, they should be arrested and charged. But in reality, what reason would the cops have for protecting Zimmerman? Just because the victim was just some black kid? Seems far fetched.

    Zimmerman sounds like one of those cop-wanna-be types. Probably did not even make mall cop.

    That's terrible. A shame the cops aren't on the side of the victim here. And why aren't they? That's curious. Seems they've migrated to the anti-victim side after having created so many victims by their own actions for so long. I hope they're not using all their experience elsewhere to limit the consequences for killing somebody in this instance.

    The reason could be as simple as that, and no, that kind of argument is not necessarily that farfetched - especially when looking at the gender aspect of perpetrator/victim in relation to police/prosecution/judge/jury response...

    An equally simple and banal option: police laziness. Or perhaps a combination of the two - police wants to take it easy, and the fact that the kid was black is only an added incentive to put as little effort in it as possible. Again a fairly common reason for wrongful convictions (police laziness - find the nearest person we can blame the crime on, and get him convicted). Same process, only in this case, the decision is to not solve the crime.

    This is what happens when you let special interest groups write your laws...in this case the NRA.

    When reading these articles, it is painfully obvious that authorities - police and homeowners association - seem to be doing everything they can to get this murderer of the hook.

    Simply put, the fact that this idiot decided to leave the vehicle and pursue the victim makes the claim of self-defence invalid.
