So it has come out that last week Zimmerman saved a man who was stuck in a flipped over truck. Will this make people see the man different?

Thats a good point. I'm sure that kids parents feel much better knowing he saved another persons life. They may even ask him over for dinner because of his good deed.
I fully agree with you Christin S. Also, I would not want any of his "help." For an adult he simply doesn't show the best judgement and I try to avoid these types of people whenever possible.
Very insightful, LW. It is true that people will believe what the WANT, based on emotion---regardless of the facts. It's sad that more of our leaders won't look at this situation in a mature and just way.
According to what I have read the vehicle was upside down on one of the people. Granted I'm not sure if the media is truthful or not on the situation. I have to ask if he did save a black man would you feel any different?
If you believed, as I do, that he is entirely responsible for the death of Martin, would you feel any different? I don't really care if he gives mouth-to-mouth to a dying kitten. I have no interest in sewing capes for killers.
Questions Borsia, Did he have a right to be there, meaning Trayvon in the gated community? Did he have any weapons, other than concrete as Zimmerman had? What would have been Trayvons motive? Anger.. Zimmerman's life may have changed but he has one.
He was OK walking through the complex if they have an open policy, some do some don't. But Z was not wrong in being suspicious. Had M not assaulted Z he would be alive today. Concrete can kill just as a gun can kill.
It does seem possible that he wanted to take advantage of the possible brownie points that some people are giving him.
I agree but sadly in our now Capitalist Extremist nation no one gives a damn about good people, about good deeds or about one another. Everyone wants a target and Zimmerman foolishly followed an angry teen in the night, target provided.
