Why Did Some people See George Zimmerman As The Victim And Trayvon Martin As The Aggressor?


Why did they believe and not question his account of how their confrontation started?

    Trayvon, unfortunately, was a victim of his own bad choices. If anyone is to blame, it should be the parents who did not teach him to respect others. With this lack of respect, Trayvon went violent in a situation that led to his death. Sad but true.

    I agree that the media baits minorities by aggressively seeking to proclaim skin color as the reason for many criminal acts. This is wrong.

    I do not represent my friends as black, brown, off-white, etc. My friends are people that I respect.

    i don't always agree with ur frankness, but in this case i do. i also watched the trial, & there was no evidence beyond a reasonable doubt 2 cause the jury any other choice but to acquit. Racism will never B allowed 2 end in this country/world.

    This is reinforced by the fact that they found his keys and flash light 20-30' from where the final fight took place. If Z were chasing M he would have had them in his hand.

    Zimmerman DID NOT "start it". It was Zimmerman's neighborhood (not Martin's). Adult vs. teen....teen respects adult. Zimmerman did in fact turn and walk away. Martin sensed weakness... charged up to Zimmer. Then the sucker punch&beatdown --TO

    Racism is still alive and well all around us. While I think your opinions are merited- they are, after all, part of your life experience- I think it goes both ways as well. As a white man I feel eyes of distrust on me regularly too, just for my color

    why should the lawless be the only ones permitted to have guns? is it so that innocent society members can be slaughtered? A gun in the hands of a law abiding citizen is protection. When a gun is in the hands of a criminal it is premeditated.

    It seems that Trayvon was taught that violence is the answer to any situation.
