Zimmerman killed a person who was not breaking any laws. He could have called the police and then went away, but he didn't.
I know not you Doc. You seemed to be asking why not just leave Zimmerman to the wolves. You also asked about why the political divide, I think some, names like Al Sharpton had alarm bells ringing early.
More facts may come out in the trial, but the counter picture to the initial portrayal of Trayvon is a long term user of PCP type drugs, expelled from 2 schools currently under a 10 day suspension from another, admirer of fight club videos on youtube, on top of Zimmerman beating him quite severely.
In that moment of getting his face smashed in, and I don't know if you agree with US laws on guns or what not, Trayvon was not some innocent kid with skittles in his pocket. He was on top of Zimmerman beating the crap out of him. At least if you come to that conclusion with the facts we have.
