I haven't really followed the story very closely.  Can someone give a quick update on how this has turned into a race issue?

I think some racists are taking advantage of the situation and turning it into a race issue.

Gross.  You want to help raise funds for the racist asshole who chased after a kid with a gun for wearing a hoodie?  The cops told him to stay inside, and he chased the kid.  

George Zimmerman, who has a history of legal trouble, which his judge father kept him out of.  

False portrayals in the media?  How the hell do you know?  Did you listen to the 911 tape?  Did you hear the story of the person who was talking on the phone with Trayvon just before he was murdered?  Why would Trayvon charge at someone with a gun?  Yeah, that is really the most plausible explanation Roll Eyes  Even if he did charge at him, Zimmerman unequivocally created the situation when he should not have, by chasing him down the street in a threatening manner.

Why the hell would you want to support this scumbag?  

Right that racist zimmerman!

You won't find this in the "main stream" media:

“You will recall the incident of the beating of the black homeless man Sherman Ware on December 4, 2010 by the son of a Sanford police officer. The beating sparked outrage in the community but there were very few that stepped up to do anything about it. I would presume the inaction was because of the fact that he was homeless not because he was black.

Do you know the individual who stepped up when no one else in the black community would? Do you know who spent tireless hours putting flyers on the cars of persons parked in the churches of the black community? Do you know who waited for the church-goers to get out of church so that he could hand them flyers in an attempt to organize the black community against this horrible miscarriage of justice? Do you know who helped organize the City Hall meeting on January 8, 2011 at Sanford City Hall??

That person was GEORGE ZIMMERMAN.”

– from a letter to Turner Clayton of the Seminole County NAACP written by “a concerned Zimmerman family member”

There is a reason that someone is innocent until proven guilty
You realize that that does not apply in the USA anymore, right? Roll Eyes It is such a police state these days, and I have my doubts that a single TSA agent or police officer has ever read the Constitution or its amendments.

What rights have you lost to a TSA agent? lol

This is excessive force at least. I can go and shoot any person and then claim self-defense. Dead don't talk.

Zimmerman needs to burn.

Your eagerness to burn a man before you have given him a chance to give his side of the story is disturbing to say the least.  The dead don't talk - so the living shouldn't be able to either??  Step back and let your head cool off PLEASE people.  I would expect more civility...

Nobody knows if Zimmerman is a racist (it's irrevelant)...

Nobody knows if Trayvon was beating the shit out of Zimmerman (irrelevent also)...

What we do know is that Trayvon was lawfully minding his own business, Zimmerman incorrectly thought he was up to no good, Zimmerman pursued him, an altercation occured...Trayvon died.

Zimmerman may not be a racist murderer like some want you to think, but he certainly is not a responsible gun owner like others want you to think.

Also, your title is inaccurate.  Zimmerman was not the victim.  The unarmed kid he shot was.

You mean the 6'3" young man that had Zimmerman pinned on the ground?  As was mentioned earlier, take a step back before you believe what the manipulative media is feeding you.

So he deserved to be shot for that? Yea right.

Zimmerman had a restraining order against him granted in 2005. That prevents him from owning guns in FL.

All of them. They can seize and search your electronic devices at will, with no warrant, they can grope and assault you with no recourse, and they are expanding their operations like only an oppressive regime can.

If you think that is reasonable to shot for getting pinned it's a disturbed world that you live in.

+1.

We will never know all of the real story.  We do know that Travon was followed by a stranger with a gun going against the advice of the police.  Stand your ground does not apply.  It may be murder but without a question it is manslaughter.

If Zimmerman was at his house this would be all different, but he was not even walking around.  He got out of his car to pursue someone who he admitted 'looked out of place'.

I do not like to see this portrayed as a race issue.  It is not.  Zimmerman is probably not a racist, that does not make him innocent.

There are to many contradicting stories. The media tells us stories from both sides and then every week they persuade everyone to feel in a different direction. Raising BTC's for this guy won't help... he has a family member thats a judge... and i agree with the one guy above, a donation for this guy could mean bad publicity for BTC.

Actually I don't think it's a bad publicity. I don't believe that this is a race issue, Zimmerman is hispanic (or half by his mother).

I didn't think my opinion of certain members here could get any lower... I may give the benefit of the
doubt to the OP and others who may be truly interested in helping a person they see as a victim, but
for those ( or at least the one scumbag ) who seemingly sees everything, including tragedies like this
one, only in the light of, "How can we use this as an opportunity to market bitcoin."   wtf?

Like 80% of the claims made by the anti-Zimmerman crowd, it's probably not true and the restraining order had lapsed by then.

There is a reason that someone is innocent until proven guilty
You realize that that does not apply in the USA anymore, right? Roll Eyes It is such a police state these days, and I have my doubts that a single TSA agent or police officer has ever read the Constitution or its amendments.

What rights have you lost to a TSA agent? lol
All of them. They can seize and search your electronic devices at will, with no warrant, they can grope and assault you with no recourse, and they are expanding their operations like only an oppressive regime can.

Why should you care if they do that if you have nothing to hide ? Are you saying people with bombs should be allowed to board a plane?

I hate to break it to you, but you are a victim of their failed policies that are slowly but surely turning this place into a police state. Brainwashed like the rest of the sheeple. For the record, I am unequivocally NOT saying that people with bombs should board a plane.

LOL right all those rights I've lost! wtf you going on about ? What "Police State"? .You sounds like a paranoid lunatic probably a Ron P. supporter. Obviously, you are OK with bombs be allowed on board according to you the TSA should be abolished.  

edit: I love how people make these ludicrous claims and provide no evidence of their "rights" being taken away and no you don't have right to board a plane with anything you want.
