    Yes, he should be charged with murder!

    Mr. self appointed neighborhood watch captain because he has nothing better to do than to accost people on the street 'cuz it's my neighborhood and you aren't allowed to walk on my sidewalk without my permission or I'll shoot you........


    Needs to be charged with murder because that's what he is. He should have been minding his own business!!

    Anyone hear the enhanced tapes from the 911 call that some are calling as racist?

    I listened to it several times with my not so good hearing and could swear he said "drop it now" not something else..?

    Good thing the FBI is involved as one would have to assume that they have the technology to clear things up.

    Could be no diff than any cop on a dark night that thought they saw a gun and reacted, right or wrong.

    I have been following that on CNN, just not enough information to make a case either way. Convoluted evidence.

    I am guessing Zimmerman shot too fast, but that is entirely speculation based on limited information and conflicting information.

    In florida (and 20 other states) you can kill someone if you 'feel' threatened.

    sounds like a licence to kill anyone you want and claim you were scared

    I would not want you as a juror should I feel the need to shoot someone. You have tried and convicted him already without knowing anything of what happened; no matter how bad it looks right now.

    911 recordings

    I heard them.

    If you think it's ok to kill someone, cool. Just hope it's not you that ends up dead.

    I didn't convict him yet. I only charged him. Nice try though.

    Fact 1 irrelevant, he might have been physically assaulted.

    Fact 2 irrelevant man has right of free mobility.

    Fact 3 irrelevant 9-11 operator cannot tell a caller what to do or not to do in an official way.

    I am leaning towards your side infinitewisdom, but I just don't see a clear-cut judgement on this one.
