    The fact that people think that Zimmerman was treated like any other person who shot and killed someone is part of the problem.

    There had to be a huge public outcry just to get the police to do their job.  That is investigate the killing of a dead kid!

      is Trayvon was an UNARMED dead black kid who had no reason ever to imagine himself in danger in the place where he lived. The conclusion I would draw, were I a young black male in America, although I knew it already but now have orders of magnitude reinforcement of it - NO PLACE IS SAFE.
