    Really?  Good for the family if they were truly in trouble.  Seems like quite the coincidence.

    If it wasn’t just a publicity stunt (and I’m skeptical because a lot of powerful people have interest in Zimmerman), I’d guess it was from the guilty conscience caused by killing an unarmed child.

    I never had a ‘bad’ opinion of him in the first place, so my opinion doesn’t change.

    He also tutored children on the weekend and voted for Obama.

     

    I think the whole thing was way too publicized, and it was all very unnecessary.

    My opinion stays the same.

    @stefanielovesjamie:  +1. This.

    Also, what he said:

    “I know this case has elicited strong passions,” Obama said in a statement in which he referred to the slaying of the black 17-year-old as a “tragedy” for all  of America. “And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even  higher. But we are a nation of laws, and a jury has spoken. I now ask every  American to respect the call for calm reflection from two parents who lost their  young son.”

    I dont think he saved anyones lives.  There were no injuries.  I still think he’s garbage.

    I think the media needs to move on to something else.  I wasn’t a juror and I didn’t hear all the facts so I cannot comment on guilt or innocence.  The man has been found not guilty and has to live out his life.  Stop the death threats and publicity.

    I’m gonna say no, because they were two totally different situations. If you saw an overturned vehicle, you automatically assume those people need help (as they did.) In my opinion, that is such a clear cut thing… help innocent people who were in an accident.

    Trayvon Martin was completely different. Most people upon seeing an accident would either want to help or would maybe call the police or would at least be thinking “oh no those poor people need help!” Zimmerman made a judgement about Trayvon and what he was up to and what he was doing and where he was going. It was speculation and suspicion, not an obvious situation. He responded in a certain way, in which he could have responded in numerous other ways (or at least one other way, to not follow and engage), and he made a CHOICE on how to act based on what he thought MIGHT be happening or had happened, not just reacting to a situation that has already happened or occured.

    I don’t have an opinion on George Zimmerman because we still don’t know the facts about what happened and we never will. You need 2 people to tell both versions of the story and only one of them is alive. I think the trial has spun out of control, and a lot of people are focused more on race than the murder itself.
