Beyonce and hubby have now added their voice to the dissent about the Trayvon verdict, so perhaps the jury did get it wrong ?

The argument that seems to be getting peddled around is that "this would not have happened if a white boy were killed," rather than focussing on the specific events in the case.

Exactly! It is what it is....To change the verdict IMHO, you would have needed to change the law....

Let the people of Sanford, Florida tell you differently.. They think nothing is wrong with that law.. People don't understand or don't want to understand what the protest were about

I'm reserving judgement 'till Kanye West and Kim Kardisian come out with their take on it.

Basically it all boils down an guy patrolling the streets with a gun who wasn't law enforcement. You take that gun away from him and he's just someone looking from behind the curtains.

I don't think there are black snowbirds because entrenched racism in Canada means that it's only very recently that any non-white people in Canada have reached retirement age at the level of affluence required to support multiple homes. It may well be that rich black Canadians wouldn't choose to winter in the slave owning States but, really, the number of rich black retired Canadians is such that we could just ask him where he chooses to go.

What rule was that?

Zimmerman caused the incident that led to Martin's death. He may be innocent in law but he is morally guilty. Stand your ground does not apply when you cause the interaction. I think that was how it was described.
Why did she leave to get the gun and come back and shoot. Could she not have called the police when she went out?

Trayvon used a racial slur referring to Zimmerman. Zimmerman doesn't even mention he's black initially until specifically asked by the police. The photos of Trayvon all show him a little 10 year old rather than muscular 17 year old which creates a somewhat misleading impression.

Zimmerman followed him, got out of his car to do so. Antagonised him. It doesn't matter whether he was frail or muscular, he was targeted by Zimmerman.

Abused women behave differently, look it up.
