This case is no doubt a tragedy but the news media is sensationalizing it and misconstruing the facts so much that it's getting everyone whipped into a frenzy just so we will turn on the TV and give them ratings.
This young man is six foot three. The media is showing us a four year old photo of him when he was a child to prey on our emotions. He was beating the living hell out of Zimmerman. He shot in self defense. He did not pursue this young man and want to shoot him.
Where is the media frenzy about the 13 year old white kid in Kansas City who was doused in gasoline and lit on fire because he WAS white?

@Satkela: He says he shot hijm in "self defense" which is not NOT murder, plain and simple. IF it is proven that was not the case? Then Zimmerman IS guilty, case closed. Proven, not "I feel" or "I think" ok?
Vick ran a dogfighting (illegal) ring and tortured dogs to DEATH FOR FUN (also illegal). The two cases are not even remotely associated, except perhaps that Woopie Goldberg thought Vick was "just being a Black Man" and should have been let off...
A picture I thought was of Trayvon apparently is not, my mistake!

@5Cats: He IS guilty!! He admitted to shooting the boy! He continued to pursue him even though the police dispatcher told him to stay put! If I shot an unarmed person that was just strolling in the neighborhood suspect or not I would be sitting in jail right now awaiting trial!
There have been cases where people have been imprisoned for less, hell even Michael Vick got jail time for endangering dogs. Do dogs deserve more justice than human beings?
