Please FReep this local poll: Do you believe George Zimmerman should be arrested and charged with a crime in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin?
Yes - 41% No - 36% Not Sure - 23%
Poll is in the middle of the page.
I do not have enough information to make an opinion. This is up to the police and courts to decide not the media.
I don’t think anyone should participate in a poll about whether to arrest someone. It’s not a matter for public opinion. How about a poll about whether the public should wait until the investigation is over and the facts are known before forming opinions about guilt?
We’ve got waaaaay too many CSI “experts” in this country. Arrested! Arrested for what?
Gee, why have a grand jury, lets decide by poll. And then, if the poll says he should be arrested we will just do another poll on whether or not he is guilty.
Yay for justice!
Mob rule doesn’t work out well.
Now at: Yes(40%)
USSC case Frank vs Magnum (1915) or does our “living constitution” now permit lynching by public opinion. Oh well, the street mob ended up hanging Leo Frank as well.
Not sure 22%
I really wish there was "Only if there is sufficent evidence choice"....but alas!
I said no, just because I’m sick of leftist demagoguery and manipulation of tragedies to rouse their hate mongers. Even if George Zimmerman turns out to be guilty, he could never receive a fair trial.
I’ll say this about this news site, at least they are using a recent pic of the gangster wanabe martin.
The police have already said they CAN’T arrest him because they have no probable cause. The police observed Zimmerman’s injuries corroborating his story of self-defense, which fits what the 911 calls and the sworn statements by witnesses have said. The gun had a full magazine and no bullet in the chamber which means that something stopped the next bullet from loading, suggesting that there was another hand on the gun besides that of the shooter.
The Martin family is claiming that the police report is fabricated and the witnesses have all been tampered with. They are alleging a vast conspiracy to cover up the truth.
But then again, they claim that the surveillance video from when Zimmerman was brought in to the police station for questioning is the “icing on the cake” to prove that Zimmerman had no head injury - even though it is clear that he’s got a gash on the back of his head.
Yes, he should be arrested, then let go because of self defense.
Then the Zimmerman family should file a billion dollar lawsuit, naming the networks and Sharpton as co-defendents.
And make it publicly know that you have Gloria Allred representing you.
No - 41%
The Freeper Effect.
I think the local police pretty much made up their mind a month ago when they released Zimmerman. Regardless of if we like it or not the media and race pimps are now leading the charge to influence this case and have charges filed against him.
This is what the civil rights leaders fought for? Mobs in the street chanting for a man's blood with flimsy evidence to support their wild accusations? Publicity-seeking politicians and race pimps like Sharpton capitalizing on this tragedy for personal aggrandizement? A totally corrupt media fanning the flames of resentment and, in effect, trying and convicting Zimmerman on TV via 'pundits', former cops and various attorneys, many of dubious integrity? This is what it comes to? Talk about tragic. Of course, when President Barack Obama chimed in, that gave the lefties, the race hustlers and the mobs a green light that Zimmerman was now 'fair game'.
Zimmerman can't win. He'll be hounded for life if he's not found culpable under Florida law but a trial would be little more than a joke and a circus with Zimmerman's conviction just a formality, then prison and almost certain death at the hands of hate-filled, self-righteous thugs with a grudge against society.
Like many, I find it fascinating that the leftmedia constantly refers to Zimmerman as 'white-Hispanic'. This designation is intended to keep the white-against-black template intact, even though, in any other context, the leftmedia would very likely label George Zimmerman as 'Hispanic' - and he would be the victim.
“That already happened. He was taken to the police station that night in handcuffs and later released.”
That should be it.
Arrested for what? Self defense!
As of 3:40 p.m. CDT / April 1, 2012
NOT SURE: 21%
George Zimmerman’s dad is Jewish; his mother is Hispanic. Where is the outcry from the Jewish and Hispanic communities for Due Process?
Was posted on another thread...the father was German but not specifically Jewish.
We can probably expect a "reality" TV show based on that premise any minute now. Our "culture" has lost its collective mind!
Sort of like the thumbs up or down at the gladiator fights. We really are heading in that direction. God help us.
If there is enough evidence to warrant it, yes.
If there is, LET THE TRIAL BEGIN.
We’re tired of the leftist, race baiters in the media.
What is the source of information that Zimmerman’s Dad is Jewish? What about his Mom? As there are Peruvian Jews.
I thought he was arrested then released?
46% NO, 20% Clueless
If Obama had committed a crime, he would be labeled as “White-Black”
Oh, wait... he has committed numerous crimes against the Constitution. They’re just not recognized as crimes.
For protective custody.
Or, remember the weapon was Kel-Tec brand which is not known for its functional reliability! Also, "bullets" don't load by themselves. A round (or a cartridge) is chambered.
So there didn’t have to be a fight to grab the gun. Other evidence would have to be analyzed to know that - such as fingerprints on the gun, the angle of the shot, etc.
Thanks for clarifying. I’m definitely not an expert on guns so the more information others can add, the better.
Not Sure 20%
Well.... he’s committed document fraud by presenting a forged birth certificate as if it was genuine at a press conference at the White House...
And he assumed the offices of both Senator and President without qualifying for either, since he has no genuine draft registration. The Selective Service Administration participated in fraud by producing a forgery.
These are the things that Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s posse have found.
So yes, he has committed crimes. I’m not sure what his booking documents would call him...
What is the big question about this surveillance video is why was there no blood on Zimmerman's jacket? It is my opinion that an answer may be that officers did not want a blood-soaked shirt to soil their police car seating. So, they took the blood-soaked shirt, and sealed it in an evidence bag. Since Zimmerman's SUV was nearby, a handy extra jacket was inside for him to wear. That is the jacket we see him wearing in the video. It is a coincidence that both were the color red.
As for the gash on the back of his head and no evidence of a bleeding broken nose in the video, it was said that first aid was used to stop the bleeding. There would be no evidence of bleeding in the video because it was stopped with the first aid. Also,the video did not show much detail to see evidence of a wound on the back of his head. If it was high definition video, we would have seen evidence of the wound and perhaps an inflamed nose. We also must remember that Zimmerman moved off the sidewalk onto the grass where those violent bashings of his head received the softer blows of grass. He would have become a severely brain-damaged victim if he hadn't. Also, he would have been incapable of gaining control of the gun that Martin had struggled with him to get. IMHO.
Do you believe George Zimmerman should be arrested and charged with a crime in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin?
Looks like most Black Americans in Miami agree with the poll results. It appears they could care less about justice for teen gangsta Trayvon Martin, since only a few hundred folks showed up at the Martin rally today held in Miami today. The media screamed out tens of thousands would join the protest meeting. Result...a dismal failure!!! Those loud mouthed Congressional Black Caucus congresswomen that set this farce meeting up, have egg all over their hateful faces. And.....Obama ain’t looking too good either amongst the brothers and sisters.
There were all sorts of Trayvon rallies and a car wash for Trayvon’s parents in the Tampa Bay area this weekend.
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them.

(a) nobody offered enough "walking-around money" to show up
(b) You would have to get out of bed
No(49%)...........Zimmerman should NOT be arrested.
