How often does the President of the US get involved when someone is murdered? Is it just because the President is black and the victim was black? Of course it is a tragedy when someone loses their life and my heart goes out to those parents. But how many other murders have happened lately that have not been mentioned by the White House? Any President doesn't have time to make comments on them all because there are just so many. So why this one? Is it an election year thing? Is it a race thing? I ask that in all sincerity. I'm not black, so maybe my comments are out of place. I don't know what it is like to be a part of a long-persecuted race. Why does this one case matter when other tragedies don't draw this kind of attention?

Turns out that there was a witness to the attack. It was the Latino on the ground with Trayvon on top of him, beating the Latino. The black guy in the hoodie was on top and the Latino in the red jacket was on the bottom and the Latino suffered a broken nose and had to have stitches on the back of his head. His red coat has grass stains. An eyewitness conforms this. It was the Latinoeams for help that are heard on the phone. That is why the police didn't throw Zimmermann in jail. The evidence and witness are on Zimmerman's side. Think Jessie Jackson, Rev. Sharpton, MSNBC and CNN will apologize for what they have been saying?
