Re: Black Panther Party offering $10K for ''capture'' of George Zimmerman

Stalked and followed Trayvon Martin, even after being specifically instructed by a 911 operator not to do so,

Technically the operator said something like "We don't need you to do that." I'm a literal person and to me that's not the same thing as forbidding it. And after that Zimmermann made it clear that he was still following Trayvon and the operator didn't say not to. I think that the first one was just CYA.

And I take issue with some of your "facts". You might be right, but how do you know for a fact? For example.

Exited his vehicle armed with a semi-automatic pistol, and accosted Trayvon Martin,

According to Zimmermann, he lost sight of Trayvon and Trayvon accosted him. Who's to know whether his alleged "fact" or your completely hypothetical one is correct?

Almost certainly touched or grabbed Trayvon, in an attempt to "hold" him for the police,

A known fact either happened or it didn't. They don't probably happen or it's just a theory.

I think that you are emotionally invested in this case and are allowing a full range of experiences and prejudices to effect your opinion. You've practically accused the police of racism as if it's the only possible explanation.
