40% Now Say Trayvon Martin Shot in Self-Defense; 24% Say It Was Murder 40% Now Say Trayvon Martin Shot in Self-Defense; 24% Say It Was Murder - Rasmussen Reports Now I like a very few WANTED to wait till MORE evidence was in to jump to a conclusion..BUT the Sharptons, Obamas.. wanted a "hate" crime. Now with more evidence... reserving judgement seems to be right! Consider if we used the Dept of Justice approved Black Panthers approach.. bounty on Zimmerman's head! Thank goodness a Majority of law enforcement have the experience to WAIT for MORE information to pass judgement. I hope this is the lesson that MORE people learn... DON"T rush to judgement and do like a majority of voters did for example put into office an incompetent person who happened to be black being THE ONLY qualification!
