    I actually couldn't be less surprised considering its Florida. Expect more of the same incidents over the years.

    from what i have read there has been racial tension in this area for a long time. this situation just made it worse. so apparently this isn't too suprising to the people that lived there. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...8.html#s766198

    A fairly obvious question, the answer to which i've probably missed, did the shooting occur inside the gated community?

    People seem to be assuming that it did, but I can't see anything in the news stories to support that.

    Their might have actually been a witness (or one who is willing to come forward) if it wasn't inside the gated community.

    The more stuff gets leaked out about this thing the shadier and shadier it seems.

    Why do you need a gun for self defense against a un-armed black teenager? why did he have to shot to kill? what was he doing that was supposedly so suspicious?

    Being black, it would appear.

    supposedly there are 2, but they heard the scuffle. they didn't actually see the altercation.

    I don't really understand this i thought Florida was one big melting pot of diversity.

    Granted i don't know where in Florida this took place.

    Florida, like everywhere else in America, is full of racist shit heads.

    that's southern Florida. this took place in north Florida...the very southern conservative part.
    Okay, before this thread this is what I knew about Tish, zip, zero, nada.
    I now know that Tish is a heavily armed, black, bi-sexual, truck driving woman who likes going to the clubs.

    They're in the pot, but they don't melt much. Florida is a bunch of different ethnicities that mostly stick to their own kind and don't much like each other. However, I thought Miami was somewhat different.

    According to everything I've read about this, Trayvon Martin was inside the gated community. His father's fiance lives in the gated community, and he was returning to her house from the neighbourhood store.

    On the face of things, I'm finding it hard to see how self-defence applies.

    On foot - In car
    Weight - Weight+maybe 100 lbs (I'm estimating)
    No record of violence - battery against a police officer, reported use of intimidation/excessive force by fellow neighbourhood watchers
    Skittles - loaded gun

    So there's a scuffle: kid going home is accosted by some aggressive dude. Sounds like Martin was doing all the self--defending.
