Former Sen. Arlen Specter in his recent biography talks about how he was a wayward teen who got into some serious mischief. But time, and a mind/spirit to change -- he put away "childish things". I have a good friend whose son had issues with vandalism...today he is a college grad and a responsible member of the community. I don't know WHY OR HOW Trayvon's school record was leaked to the public. Whoever did it should be fired and severely punished. Unlike Mr. Zimmerman, Trayvon was never CHARGED OR ARRESTED for any criminal acts. Not sure WHY Mr. Zimmerman was even eligible to own and carry a weapon given his very checkered past with the law. I hope states look at this "stand your ground" law again. If Mr. Zimmerman pursued or interacted with Trayvon in any way, he lost his claim of "innocent bystander". He should have NEVER PURSUED him; he should have called 911 and waited for police; he COULD HAVE called other neighbors and asked them to keep an eye out for the young man and report his whereabouts. There is a REASON WE HAVE PROFESSIONAL POLICE OFFICERS. If they had been allowed to handle this, TRAYVON WOULD PROBABLY STILL BE ALIVE!
