On the night of February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida, United States, George Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old African American high school student. Zimmerman, a 28-year-old mixed-race Hispanic man, was the neighborhood watch coordinator for the gated community where Martin was temporarily living and where the shooting took place.   Zimmerman shot Martin, who was unarmed, during an altercation between the two.  Zimmerman contacted police indicating that there "was a young black male who was in the wrong neighborhood."  Zimmerman had, on a number of occasions, contacted authorities regarding black men who were in his neighborhood.  Police had advised Zimmerman to stay away from Martin and that they were on their way.  Zimmerman, however, continued to stalk Trayvon.  Eventually, Martin became aware of Zimmerman and accosted him.  A confrontation ensued during which Zimmerman, as he was being overpowered by the younger Martin, pulled a gun and murdered him.  Zimmerman was acquitted during trial on the basis of the "Stand Your Ground Law."  How is it standing your ground when you are the aggressor and have been told by police to stand clear?  It was the act of a racist coward who was getting his assed kicked by Trayvon Martin, a black male who was standing his ground.  Later Zimmerman was charged with domestic violence against his girlfriend and would eventually sell the murder weapon to the highest bidder.  The passage of time has made it quite clear who the true criminal is.  It was the "man" standing his ground against a minor who was armed only with a pack of Skittles. - Todd
