    Mr. Zimmerman must be found guilty of the murder of Travon Martin. He can not claim "Stand your ground" after he pursued Travon Martin, and did instigate the shooting
    by disobeying the 911 dispatch orders not to "pursue" Travon Martin.

    If he did not pursue mr. Martin, mr. Martin would still be alive today.
    Mr. Zimmerman did not have a police uniform on, nor did he have any identifying
    clothes to indicate that he was a neighborhood watch volunter.

    Stand your ground, was drafted into law, as a means to protech home owners.
    Not for neghborhood watch vigilates to pursue and then shoot unarmed individuals.
    It means Stand your ground in your home!, not run out and pursue and then shoot and unamred person!!

    He doesn't seem like the kind of person that would pursue with intent to kill.
    There's puzzle pieces missing and until it's all put together, we should keep it together and stop brewing the hatred.

    Hatred or not, Zimmerman may claim he "reasonably feared deadly force".

    This is no puzzle game with pieces to put together!, it clear from his comments, and derogatory racial
    epitath caught on the 911 dispatch recording, that Mr. Zimmerman already racially profiled mr. Martin as being a criminal "up to no good", "who looked suspicious", on the grounds
    that he was a young black male walking through his neighborhood, wearing a hoodie sweat
    top. Mr. Zimmerman then proceeded to follow and cause the situation, that caused the shooting, and killing of Mr. Martin.

    No one is brewing hatred, these are the cold hard facts of the case.Legally it seems very obvious what happened, and mr. Zimmerman is trying to orchestrate a cover up, with the
    help of some of the Sanford Police.

    Mr. Zimmerman only called Police once on White males , but proceeded to call police
    7 times on black males that were just walking through his neighborhood.
    The White male was in fact battering a white female, and Mr. Zimmerman had to be asked to call.!!

    You know that the 911 call was edited. The producer who did it for NBC has already been fired. If this is what you are hanging your hat on, you have already failed.

    No matter that Zimmerman pursued Martin, once he stopped and returned to his car, Martin then became the agressor. Plain and simple.

    Trayvon is 6'3", 160 pounds, Zimmerman is 5'6" 200 pounds...do the math. If Zimmerman had pursued Trayvon, Trayvon would have got away.

    Really? The OP is about as clueless as they come. It hink his posts are just about 100% WRONG. The only thing he got right is that Martin is dead. So I'll say that he's 99% wrong.

    Educate yourself.

    The death of Martin appears to have been nowhere Zimmerman's car, from maps/diagrams posted.

    The problem that so many people are constantly blowing right past is that this was never an "intentional" killing. It was an accidental discharge. Zimmerman has been trying cover his ass because he messed up by trying to detain Martin, and knows that he's now on the hook for it. Too many of the people demanding Zimmerman be charged are themselves being overzealous and are so wrapped up trying to paint the picture of Zimmerman being an angry thug that they can't see what's right in front of them.

    Murder one is not appropriate. Zimmerman didn't hunt down Martin just to kill him, nor did he intentionally shoot Martin at all. What he did was start a confrontation, pull out his weapon in hopes that it would scare Martin off after Martin gained the upper hand, and the gun discharged in the scuffle.
