I am a simple person who has worked, served military time and lived with many different ethnic groups. Never a problem. I got along with everyone.
The George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin case got way out of hand.
I feel sorry for the Martin family losing their son. I can't imagine losing one of my children.
My opinion is both parties were at fault. Nobody will ever know the truth about that day.
Zimmerman was told to stay in his vehicle, which he did not do. He supposedly followed Martin, which is not a crime. Who knows what happened next?
All the pictures from the media show Martin in his youth. Let us not forget he was 6 feet tall and a football player when this happened. He could hold his own.
People are crazy now. Shootings are everywhere. Why did this particular one get so much attention? Mistakes were made by both parties.
Now we have something else to worry about again!
