    Should Zimmerman sue all the media who have made stuff up about him?

    The great thing about the media is that all the false or made up things they broadcast or printed about him can be easily verified.  I think Zimmerman should sue all those "news" media and get rich.  He's going to need the money anyway after paying off his lawyers through all the civil and DOJ suits that he will be subject to.  I hope he makes so much money that he has enough money left over after paying off the lawyers to get a name change and start anew.  In addition, the media will think twice before they defame somebody.

    If Zimmerman is smart, he will just change his name and disappear to somewhere like Costa Rica or Panama.
    The fact is that any private individual attempting to sue someone as big as a News Agency will not live long enough to collect a dime.  Their lawyers will hold it up in court for so many years it would be impossible to win.
    It sad but true; money rules and his chances of winning a case would be slim to none.
    I would hope that he has had enough time in courtrooms for awhile at least.  The DOJ and Civil Lawyers will be after him for the rest of his life.

    I have the opinion that if any suing is to be done, it should be the State of Florida suing Al Sharpton.  It was Mr. Sharpton's refusal to accept the opinion of Florida investigators that led to the need for a public trial, and the waste of taxpayer dollars to pay for that trial.  It was his voice that led to Florida seeking to prosecute against their better judgement.  The jury agreed with the orginal set of investigators.
    But that is not yet enough taxpayer dollars wasted.  My understanding is that Mr. Sharpton is now calling for a full up federal civil rights investigation, totally disregarding that Mr. Zimmerman apparently regarded lots of different people of different races as being suspicious.  Wasting Florida taxpayer dollars is not enough, Mr. Sharpton now seeks to waste federal tax dollars.  That comes out of all of our pockets.
    Is racism involved?  Maybe, but if any racism is involved, it is most evident in the voice of Mr.Sharpton, who simply refuses to accept the possibility that a full-grown child could act in a way that is threating to a mature man. 
    Was Zimmerman guilty of something?  Probably so, but stupidly putting yourself in a situation that can only get worse is not the sort of thing that should eat up taxpayer dollars the way it has, and the way it will continue to do so if Rev. Sharpton has his way.
    I'm with Poolman on this one.  If Mr. Zimmerman is smart, he'll do his best to fade away.  But unlike Poolman, I suspect Mr. Sharpton won't let that happen.

    I think yes he should media go crazy over any kind of nowadays. They take sides and accuse people even before they got to the court to be proven guilty.
