    Is ABC's story one paragraph about the accident and his involvement and the rest about the trial and people being upset about the result? Appears to be.

    Good for him. I would say it takes much more than the little extra that makes someone stop and help, to stop and help when you are daily cast as public enemy number one; he is risking being recognized and someone maybe coming after him.

    How long until this is turned into more profiling? If the crash victim was white, maybe, or had a "white person car", and that he wouldn't have stopped, etc, etc.

    I applaud that as well. Who could blame the guy if he capitulated to all of the tumult over the case, the criticism, the blah-blah-blah, etc., and lived his life in fear.

    Sounds like he is not going to do that, and that is a good thing.

    Well done. Of course, if he helped the guy out and then shot him, we've have people claiming it was justified.

    Only if he started bashing his head in. Than again only young adults with bad intentions tend to react that way.

    Nonsense. Our illustrious Attorney General won't let him have his weapon back. Zimmerman is going to have to continue rescuing motorists without shooting them until the Justice Department ceases this unethical breach of the 5th Amendment.

    Just got a text that the Sanford police have just turned over all the evidence to the FBI.

    I'm sure this will get buried somewhere and Sharpton & Co will still claim GZ is the Devil incarnate

    Funny, the first thought that popped into my head is that I wonder if Trayvon would have stopped to lend a hand?

    Apparently you have a poorly developed (sick) sense of humor and a "tin" ear and then you doubled down in your post #11.

    And I know everyone else is thinking it, so I'm going to ask it:

    How did that obese individual manage to rescue anyone from anything? In his current condition he looks like he's sucking wind just to walk from the couch to the fridge.

    I joke, but in seriousness I'm sure the truck driver and his family are grateful for the rescue without regard to the deliverer being the "devil incarnate" to a hypersensitive minority of Americans.

    I can see/read it now, GZ helps out a white man in distress. If it was an Asian American, GZ helps out a white Asian man. If it was a Cuban man, GZ helps out a white Cuban man. Then they will say had it been a black man GZ would keep on going.
