Response to fleur-de-lisa (Original post)

5. My take: By the time they paid attention to public outcry, evidence was gone

I think they pretty much immediately wrote it all off as self defense because they were 'acquainted' with Zimmerman and they just took his version as fact.

I see a case where a paranoid guy chased a perfectly innocent young man down, after being told by the police not to, instigated a confrontation, lost control in a panic and fired a gun. I don't know if it is 2nd degree murder, but I sure as hell think it is aggravated manslaughter. The credibility of his self defense claim flew out the window, the instant Zimmerman ignored what he was told, got out of his car and headed in Trayvon's direction.
