It's not new news, but I have been following it a little bit since the story broke last month. It's interesting because a white man shoots an unarmed black kid, so the racial divide comes to the fore of the story (rightly or wrongly). This is a pretty decent timeline of what happened. http://articles.orlandosentinel.com...n-shooting-20120317_1_shooting-sanford-police Something like this is so alien to me, but I'd like to get other peoples read on the story. Zimmerman hasn't been charged (yet, he was questioned and released, with the Martin family being told he had acted in self defense). Does that hold up? Was this an act of self defense?, or an over zealous neighbourhood watchman taking his little bit of power and turning himself into the sheriff of a small gated community?
