Their own recordings and witness testimony seem to contradict that.

The 911 call clearly indicates Zimmerman was an aggressor.

At the very least the level of incompetence these officers have exuded should get them fired.

No arguing that there was some incompetence involved. I am not sure if the 911 tapes were available at the time of the incident. From what I recall in the transcripts however, I believe Zimmerman stated that Martin was approaching him.

I also seem to remember that Zimmerman stated that he was following Martin so I don't know Martin could have been approaching Zimmerman. I am also not sure that following is being aggressive. This is the sad part of stories like this. So many unknown facts.

It took me days to read this thread and the reason for that is because I just knew someone would make a comment like this. Second post, it didn't take long.

I'm African-American and I live in a gated community (Stonebridge) and what disgusts me even more some people here agree with this comment. You can cheer for an African-American but you can't live next to one.

That was a racist statement and you are as such. Along with the people that agree with you. A kid lost his life by no fault of his own. This is disgusting, there's no place on this forum for statements like that and I am highly offended.

I really could care less who doesn't like it.

In who's eyes? And all sarcasm is not meant to be funny and this is one of those times. An innocent African-American kid was gunned down by a white man. Show me the humor in that!


Show me the humor in anyone losing their life no matter what color they are. I guess some people don't know what to say!

His sarcasm was not meant to be funny but to point out exactly why the situation occurred and how sad and pathetic that particular reason is.

He pointed out the sad reality of the situation in like the second post of the thread using one sentence. Pretty effective use of sarcasm if you ask me.
