Too bad we can't get an unbiased accurate report of this incident. Depending on what news channel you tune into it is spun to that station's ideals.

Is this article really appropriate for Patch? I would like to see Patch focus on local issues, not controversial national topics.

Zimmerman should be free. He has done nothing illegal. The facts that came out clearly show that. It's a shame to see Obama using this tragedy for political gain but it is not surprising.

None of us were there that night. However, the police were notified about the suspicious person ( Martin) and instructed Mr. Zimmerman to let them (the police handle the situation. Zimmerman did not relent.This has nothing to do with Obama- let anyone who's has lost a child to violence, believes in the sanctity of human life stand up and say enough. It is a testimony to the reality that gun control is our best means to reducing the occurance of such deaths. As well as the reality that prejudice, whether consious or unconscious exists and we must take precautions within ourselves and our society to guard fiercely against it.

Unfortunately, the media and the politicians have already convicted this guy. Obama should be focusing on his responsibilities and let the local police deal with this issue.
