Exactly. Criminals want you to ignore that little voice in your head, which has been with us for millenia, that tells us that this person or situation is not right.

The predator takes the prey that is self-absorbed, or ignores the signs of predation.

A good read on this by Gavin de Becker, “The Gift of Fear”.

“Was it street talk for ?????? Did we get snookered??”

I have read/heard (probably on Free Republic!) that Skittles and Arizona Tea are sometimes used as “street talk”.

So there might be camera footage but it might also have been copied over.

Were there real Skittles and Arizona Tea on his person? Did the police see real Skittles and Arizona Tea - that would be evidence wouldn't it?

"Does this mean he has to wait until May 29 for a bond hearing? How bizarre."

No. Zimmerman's attorney said today that bond would be set in the next week or two and by then he hoped to have arrangements for someplace safe by then.

Damned right. I live in what would politely be called a “mixed” neighborhood. Pretty cool folks all around, though....working class black families all around; they take care of their homes, yards, etc. Average working stiffs. Mix in some yuppies and retirees and some other white or oriental blue collar types....that’s my ‘hood.

I guarantee if a group of 3 or more “urban youts” came walking back into my cul-de-sac, I’d be standing at my door with a loaded .45 or .357 magnum in my hand, at the ready. I’m dead serious.

that is the EDITED version of the call;you are either accepting the smear or promoting it.

Nope,I'm not doing either.I was being sarcastic but didn't think I even needed a sarcasm tag.My mistake!

The sarcasm was obvious to me ... but since there are trolls lurking who have been known to say something as utterly stupid (if it wasn't sarcasm) as that, I can understand the misinterpretation.

Meanwhile, here's some fun (my photoshop skills aren't too good, but it's worth a chuckle:

There is nothing wrong with profiling, whether we do it as private citizens or leo’s do it. It is common sense.

I haven’t read that. Where was that reported? From what I read about O’Mara it seemed Zimmerman contacted him directly.

Zimmerman did contact him directly. An atty from Fla said this afternoon that the state will pay him because Zimmerman is indigent.

Boy Zimmerman really looks hispanic, and appears from what little he said has a slight accent. I know he’s born here but still.

Meatloaf,

Thanks for the link I don’t think anyone should be discouraging donations until Zimmerman’s attorney himself states he is getting paid by the state of Florida. A lot lawyer talkingheads on TV don’t have a clue. The state might pay but there’s no confirmation they are at this moment.

My point is that it was created and funded by the government. How can it be wrong?

Looking further, it appears that the Watch is being overseen by the Sanford PD. I has thought the development was running it. Whoever was running it is going to be sued by Trayvon's parents.

A cop actually stopped me and escorted me to and from the house.

Sounds like you were profiled.

Sounds like I wasn’t wise yet either....despite the fact that I thought I was really, really street smart.

I agree.The kid *was* profiled.After all I heard,on NBC, part of the call Zimmerman made to 911 in which he said...”I think he's looking for trouble,he looks black”.

Wow. Ignorance is bliss.

snarkytart, good grief. Never did I mean that to discourage donations. Esp if he has a website solicting donations. I should have gone further with that post. I thank you for catching it and repairing any damage I might have done.
