I don't know about anyone else, but I am not seeing the "innocent" young man that his parents are trying to portray..
Zimmerman isn't going to ever be able to have a normal life again.
There have been a lot of black on white crimes lately and we don't see anyone raising a big stink about them, or we even hearing about them, so is their life no less of importance as these two people?
I know everyones got their own opinion on this case, so am not going to say your wrong but when it comes to any antics Trayvon got up to at school I don't think that he should be branded as a bad lad for it. Who knows maybe he did get the jewellery from a friend, maybe he needed the screwdriver for something completley innocent.. who knows. Like any 17 yr old lad caught with that stuff in his bag their going to panic.. I would, you don't want to get into trouble, so you just play dumb. I remember a friend once brought a bottle of vodka into school one day to try and be "cool" and she got caught and played dumb, said some1 planted it in her bag.. biggest load of rubbish but she didnt want to admit it and get into trouble.
In regards to Zimmerman leading a normal life again... why should he? He shot an unarmed lad that was walking back after buying sweets.. how would you feel if it hada been your son? And I keep reading reports that zimmerman said Trayvon attacked him, broke his nose and smacked his head on the road.. I havent been able to find one picture of his injuries.. surely the police would have taken pictures of the injuries to prove zimmermans story, and everything gets leaked to the media these days, surely thered be at least 1picture
And you say about how other similiar stories don't get reported, yes I will agree with that, there are alot of cases over here aswell that just go un-noticed.. but I think this case gathered so much media attention because of Trayvons age and how all the police could find on him was sweets. I was listening to the 911 call made by 1 of the residents of that gated community, and she said she could hear screaming, someone shouting help help and then she heard a gun...
I think that phone call alone shows that there is something seriously wrong with the circumstances of this boys death.
