    I said this on another thread.....I'll repeat it here. What happened to Trayvon can happen to anyone out and about minding their own business.

    I've never believed this had anything to do with Trayvon's race.

    Just watch the video and then you'll understand a real interesting perception of the situation GZ faced.

    It is refreshing seeing someone break free of the democratic plantation group think...

    This is just as humorous (ludicrous) as the LMSM labeling GZ as a "Stalker" and saying he "Executed" TM.

    Can you prove it? If so, the AG is mining for hot tips. If not, then it's just more unsubstantiated conjecture. And I think we're already stocked up here on that.

    I think in some sense nana is right- GZ did profile him as a suspicious looking individual who was acting strange in the rain- that community had several break-ins lately and TM's actions seemed suspicious- it just was not racial profiling

    We all profile...it is human nature. I'm at the airport now about to board a flight and there is a guy wearing a turban and I'm hoping this guy was screened carefully! I'm profiling.

    I see someone walking through our neighborhood that obviously looks (through his dress and actions) that he does not live in our neighborhood, am I profiling? Yep. Am I calling security to check the guy out? Yep. Do Zimmerman types work for the security company? Yep. Am I glad they do? Yep.

    I expected him to blame Obama. That's what he usually does.

    I agree - nothing at all wrong with behavior profiling. It's a reasonable and normal part of being involved in a community watch program, particularly in a community that had endured its share of crime problems.

    For example, I live in a fairly small neighborhood. We all know each other. I know what a 'normal' day and night look like, and what 'normal' activity looks like. One night I noticed a small pickup park in the culdesac. Two young guys (late teens/early 20s) get out and lift the hood, but they were looking at people's houses instead of under the hood. After watching this for a couple minutes I walked out and offered my assistance with their 'vehicle trouble'. They promptly lowered the hood and drove off. I considered their behavior, as I observed it, unusual and suspicious for someone who was seemingly having car trouble.

    Different night, similar circumstances, very different behavior. A car parked in the culdesac under the streetlight and four people get out and are looking at the front right part of the car. I walk out to find four younger girls (most likely late teens) staring at a flat tire and no idea how to deal with it other than to call Daddy. So, I changed the tire and they went on their way. Their behavior was not unusual or suspicious for someone who was really having car trouble.

    If I was to look outside towards the sidwalk/street area at night and see someone walking around in the rain, staring at houses, I would consider that to be very suspicious/unusual behavior.

    That was a rather interesting video. I don't know if he converted anyone with it. And I am not sure of what his ultimate goal is other than to give credence to getting people to clean up their acts if they want respect. The "you aren't with Jesus, you are Black" line is pretty harsh.

    Of course. Virtually all mature people paying attention to their surroundings, their investments, and their personal security, would make the same observations.

    And they should.

    Fixed it for you Nana. TM's temper cost him his life, sadly.
