    Link: Zimmerman May Face New Charges - Prosecutors state Zimmerman profiled & stalked Martin before killing him. The FBI may now charge him with a hate crime.

    See? THIS is why the "race card" was played: to crucify him regardless of guilt or innocence!

    We (meaning the "lets look at the facts" crowd) said this from the beginning.

    Oh good. We haven`t had a good Trayvon Martin flame war here in a while. Something`s been missing.

    Zimmerman gave several inconsistent statements to Sanford police
    This is untrue: The Martin family`s Lawyers said Z gave inconsistant statements.

    The Sanford Police interrogated Z 3 TIMES and said that his testamony was indeed consistant, which is one reason (of many) why they didn`t charge him.

    ALSO: the rumour that the SPD wanted to charge Z is another myth created by the Martin`s lawyers. fyi...

    "the "lets look at the facts" crowd"

    Here is a fact. If your teenage son was unarmed walking home with skittles and ended up dead you`d want the shooter`s head on a plate. It wouldn`t matter what transpired beforehand.

    So defending yourself from assualt is a hate crime? I guess Travon was considered to be doing a community service alogn with those black teens that set that white kid on fire saying "this is what you get whiteboy." This should be considered Double jepordy and it`s a double standard!

    Note to self: protect yourself from a violent assault, but not if the assailant is black. Right.

    Don`t play thug, if you are not a thug.

    If he was just walking home he would have done that and left it at that, or called the cops because someone was stalking him.

    He obviously felt he could handle the situation by attacking the man, smashing his head and breaking his nose.

    As a result, the failed thug got shot. Lesson to be learned, if you are acting suspicious people will watch you. If you feel you are being followed, call the police or handle it yourself. Of course the downside is if you decide to handle it yourself, you may lose your life because you used beyond reasonable force against somebody, and you got killed in self defense.

    Note to self: Don`t take the law into your own hands or risk being charged with a hate crime, a murder, the killing of an innocent teen, or just ruining two families. Let the cops do their job, even if they suck.

    I do get it. He thought he was going to rob an apt because historically black teens fitting his profile were responsible for break ins.

    @Madest: The law is silly, yes, until it applies to you.

    What happens if someone is trying to kill you, or your wife, or daughter?

    You shoot the bastard.

    Luckily, in Florida and about 20 other states, that is legal.

    "Zimmerman gave several inconsistent statements to Sanford police

    This is untrue: The Martin family`s Lawyers said Z gave inconsistant statements."

    The Seminole County sheriff, while in court trying to defend his decision to release Zimmerman after the initial arrest, admitted that his story was inconsistent with the evidence. Where did you read otherwise?

    Zuriel: I`m not familiar with that story, but here in California seven black youths were recently arrested for a hate crime:

    I`m really getting tired of conservatives complaining about anti-white bias in the hate crimes laws.

    @Foolsprussia:

    Really?

    Normal conversation when determining charges.

    Black on white crime = "Did he scream racial epithets during the act? Okay. Maybe hate crime."

    White on Black crime = "OMG AUTOMATIC HATE CRIME KILL WHITEY BLARRRRRRRRRRGH!"

    This is why we bitch.

    Zimmerman has black relatives and has never shown any prejudice before. Any additional charges would just be `dogpiling` at this point.

    Do you not know what is meant by saying that Zimmerman`s testimony was consistent? Are you really that dumb?

    No witness testimony is ever exactly consistent with reality. No witness ever remembers anything correctly, many experiments have shown how bad people are as witnesses and the distortions of memory get greater with stress (Zimmerman had plenty of that). However if the witness is not consistent with what he or she has said before that is an indication of lying.

    You weren`t there. Stop pretending to be a know-it-all.
    @madest: Unlike you, I know how to read an article on the topic. Several have been written that confirm, from the source (SPD) that this is the case.
    The accusation by the Martin`s lawyers got LOTS of press attention, but when the facts were looked into it was entirely based on ONE comment taken out of context.
    Now shut your hypocritical mouth Mr. Pants Tucked In! YOU of all people saying "you weren`t there" YOU!

    Zimmerman`s arrest in the first place was political. This threat of "race hate" is even more so.

    What I find beyond scary is that if one were to defend themselves against another person of a different race, it could be construed as a hate crime and be charged with it. What`s even scarier is that if it`s a FEDERAL HATE CRIME, then one could be given a death penalty.

    As South Park said, if your going to commit a crime, they better be the same skin color as you.

    Though to be honest, the only people who can commit a hate crime are straight white males, anyone else is a minority and protected. I only say that because you never hear about hate crimes against straight white males, I`m sure they happen, they are just not good entertainment for news shows.

    More nonsense from another white guy. The reason you can`t wrap your mind around hate crime laws is because you don`t go out hunting black people or gays. But sadly there are people who do. These people do need to be removed from the general population because their embedded hatred drives them to crime that makes everybody in their hated group a possible target.

    because you don`t go out hunting black people
    OH Right @madest, because Blacks NEVER target other races for crimes! In fact, Blacks NEVER commit "crimes" they`re just misunderstood!

    With their shirts NOT tucked in of course!
