    This is the situation that the people in that community were dealing with...THIS is why he was following that kid, this is why everybody was too terrified to come forward to help:

    "About six months before Zimmerman shot and killed an unarmed black teenager in his town house complex, he was standing in Bertalan's doorway, asking what he could do to help her.

    A group of young men had just broken into Bertalan's town house as she and her infant cowered in a locked bedroom. The intruders took a $600 camera and a laptop. After police had come and gone, the doorbell rang, and there was Zimmerman: 5 feet 9, in a shirt and tie, his body a little doughy, his demeanor gentle.
    He introduced himself and gave her phone numbers at which she could call him anytime. He gave her a heavy-duty lock to bolster the sliding-glass door that the men had forced open. He told her she could stay with his wife down the street if she ever felt scared again."

    Most of the media doesn't care about the facts. They don't fit the template of the leftist race hustlers

    Uh, did I say that?

    My point is that this is a neighborhood where people are afraid because they are being targeted by criminals, who are doing things like breaking in while they're IN THE HOUSE.

    I can understand carrying a weapon in that neighborhood.

    I can understand calling the cops on a kid wandering down the street, in the rain, checking out the houses, as well.

    I can also understand following him to see where he's going.

    My kid wouldn't be walking around at night. Especially if he was suspended for 10 days.

    We're supposed to believe your kid never went out of the house after 7 pm?
