the communities in which citizens have observed and reported suspicious activity have enjoyed lower crime rates.

Criminals dislike Neighborhood Watches. The Dem lawyers will attempt to argue that the development as a whole (ie, the set of homeowners as a whole) is civilly liable for the torts of any Neighborhood Watch member.

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”.

I listened to the 9-11 tape released by the police & the affidavit does not accurately represent the events recorded on the tape.

Contrary to yhe statement o Trayvon’s mom, Trayvon’s father said it was not Trayvon calling for help.

The circus begins. God, may justice and the law prevail.

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

The fact of the editing has been news here for a couple days.

If there are strangers in our neighborhood they are damn right profiled—we don’t care if they are yellow, blue or green. If they are out of place, someone is going to find out what they are up to. Of course, that usually comes as a question like—are you lost or can I help you find a particular neighbor?—and just let me get close enough to jot down your tag number if they have a vehicle.

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

I called the office this morning to confirm they would take donations. Send it to the address on the website.

You seem to have missed all of the 5.8 million references to NBC apologizing for its shamefully misleading edit of the 911 call.

The fact is this: Zimmerman never mentioned race until the 911 operator asked, "OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?" Zimmerman replied, "He looks black."

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.

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.
