Trayvon Martin 911 Call - George Zimmerman Racist Killer?

The emotional tragedy of Trayvon Martin has touched tens of thousands of people around the country. And I've learned from this tragedy that the inspired law of "Stand your own ground" is a part of justifiable use of deadly force, and it should be stricken from the books. Otherwise I believe more of these tragedies will follow. I don't think George Zimmerman is disturbed or mentally ill, he should be arrested for murder. I believe he has this stereotype of young black men, and they appear dangeours to him and he is really afraid of them. Becasue fear can make you do things you probably would never thnik you would do. I recently heard on the news that Zimmerman wanted to become a police officer, and is studying criminal justice. Being a negihborhood watchmen probably help to pump him up and made him feel important. There is still a lot more we need to know about stories similar to this one. Our country is still filled with hate and racism.I just hope that people don't take this young man's tragedy and use it to fuel more racism. This horrible tragedy has outraged tens of thousands of people from around the globe, and it's going to take a long time to get over.
