I think we all need to see the "evidence" and explore the "circumstances" a little more because according to the taped phone call from Zimmerman the dispatcher told him NOT to follow Martin, but instead to hold back, get out of the immediate area and meet the patrol car.

He did nothing of the kind. Instead he went into "pursuit mode".
What other circumstances are there?

Zimmerman was handcuffed after police arrived and taken into custody for questioning, but was released by police without being charged. Police have interviewed Zimmerman twice since then.

That is the only reference I have seen anywhere indicating he was handcuffed. It makes me wonder where that information came from, because the poli ce chief indicated he had not been detained. He was not, by the way, transported from the scene. And when and how did they interview him?

Okay, found another source saying he was taken into custody.

Ah, apparently "custody" meant a patrol car. It appears he was not transported from the scene.

I'll readily admit my error regarding Greger's residency ! Doesn't change my opinion about the lynch mob mentality prevailing across the nation regarding this case ! (Or my low opinion of the blood-thirsty posters on this thread, either.) So y'all go "jine in " with ilk of Jesses Jackson and Al Sharpton and confuse this case to the point where it can't be honestly and legally tried ! >Mech

I cannot find that quote where you cited, Rick.

Really, Mechy? Who on this site is bloodthirsty and wanting to confuse the case to where it can't be legally tried?

Have you not understood that the issue is there is no case, as determined by the Sanford police department, due to their interpretation of the "stand your ground" law?

Just for clarification, what process do you think would be (have been) appropriate for the conduct of this "case"? Let's start with this: given that Zimmerman apparently shot someone, should he have been arrested and an investigation conducted?
