I have seen how rabid the “consensual hallucination” group is on this case . . . no matter what is said they still refer to Trayvon as a child who was hunted down and murdered. They want a race riot.
Yeah, why would anyone call the police to come to a location and then stand there and murder someone knowing they were on the way?
In the same way, why raise the bond on a guy when he turned himself in voluntarily in the first place?
untrained individuals like Zimmerman have no business packing heat, nor confronting strangers they deem suspicious. Trouble didnt come to George Zimmerman; he went looking for it. At minimum, he acted like a damn fool.
A lie from start to finish. (And by the way anyone packing heat has RESPONSIBILITY. Period.)

So, what trouble did George Zimmerman find?
The author lost me at this point: “the immense dignity of the young mans parents.”
What dignity? Trademarking your punk son’s name so that you can make money off of his death is not dignity. Nor is running around playing the bereaved parent of a departed saint when you knew full well that your son was a gangsta wannabe who didn’t simply run with the wrong crowd — he was the wrong crowd.
Dignity has integrity. Snoop Dog Martin’s parents have neither.
GZ DID follow TM, but broke it off. I see no evidence that GZ followed TM to point of contact or confrontation. I see no evidence this was at any point his intention. He followed and watched him to a point where his concerns caused him to call 911.
The author is confused. He wants us to think he's objective.
When you lose Gene Lyons,...
Consenual hallucination is an interesting concept.
I’d say it accurately describes Obama supporters, especially people such as Tom Hanks.
It also accurately describes those who continue to insist that Michelle Obama is somehow beautiful.
Then you also believe that no one has a right to defend their community from criminals and that we all have a duty to purposely be victims of thugs. You can shove that POV you know where, Gene.
I'm surprised to find Gene Lyons making any sense at all, I'm almost inclined to give him a pass on the things he still had wrong. Zimmerman wasn't acting like a damn fool, he was acting like a concerned citizen trying to guard his neighborhood from yet another burglary.
