There really isn't anything else to know.

A man empowered by a law that gave him the right to take the law into his own hands, did.

Trayvon Martin was going about his business. He was nearly home when he was faced with a man stalking him. When confronted with that reality he fought in self defense and lost.

He was shot maliciously by a man that wasn't going to let "The fucking coon get away with it." 

There isn't anything else to know. 

Trayvon did nothing wrong except defend himself against a stranger with a gun. The law in Florida stands in the way of justice. 

There sincerely isn't anything else to know.

Actions speak louder than words. What was Trayvon suppose to do draw his Skittle and Arizona Iced Tea on Zimmerman?

'''"It's my understanding that Trayvon Martin got on top of him and just started beating him," the 64-year-old Robert Zimmerman said....

Ya think?

I bet even Zimmerman at this point knows the folly of gun ownership.

Majority Shiites have dominated Iraq since the 2003 ouster of Saddam Hussein, a Sunni. The nation's once powerful Sunnis complain that the Shiite-led government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is concentrating power in the hands of the Shiites. There is a growing desire by Sunni-majority provinces to win autonomy as a way to escape Shiite domination....
