    did the sanford police photograph the scene and zimmerman? or did they simply right down some notes? i thought it was a law that if someone dies outside of the hospital under unnatural causes that a thorough investigation is required to prove the cause and cercumstances of the death in question. i can;t remember the names but there was a case where the wife(teacher) of a police officer supposedly died in her bed cleaning his gun. but because there were no actual eye witnesses an investigation followed where it was determined that it was a homicide. how is it that the sanford police who have no actual eye witness to this event except for zimmerman himself. the police didn't see trayvon beating zimmermans head into the sidewalk. how are they so sure zimmerman didn't push, or assault trayvon first. its just as likely trayvon defended himself in reaction to zimmerman by punching him in the face. zimmerman could have then fallen and hit his head. how do we know. we need pictures of the scene!! please tell me the sanford police took picture of the scene and they simply haven't been released yet. if all they did was write down some notes, and not actually document the scene based soley on zimmermans account then we have a serious problem.

    Tales of 911 tape: Give it a rest. The young man is dead. It doesn't matter if you put a "hate crime" label on it. Basic justice should be enough. Murder is murder. Americans want justice. Not a federal label on top of a conviction.
