Interesting article. I won't pass judgment, and I should probably stay out after I post this. The article is clearly written with a slant, which is fine - in my opinion. A horrible situation, period.
Yet the questions remain: Why did Zimmerman find Trayvon suspicious? Why did he pursue the boy when the 911 operator instructed him not to? Why did he get out of the car, and why did he take his gun when he did? How is it self-defense when you are the one in pursuit? Who initiated the altercation? Who cried for help? Did Trayvon’s body show evidence of a struggle? What moved Zimmerman to use lethal force?
Edit: For the record, I am not suggesting that the police officer shot the youth because he was black. I think the author's point is what could have made the youth look suspicious other than the fact that he was black and why did he engage in a situation that led to a death.
