Poll: Could Trayvon Martin Case Happen Here? Killing Called Lynching

Could a similar racially charged incident occur in a gated community of San Diego County?

George Zimmerman, an armed volunteer at a gated community in Florida, says he was acting in self-defense when he fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last month. But when evidence surfaced in case, it was labeled a “modern-day lynching.” And the police chief of Sanford, FL, stepped down temporarily amid massive and harsh publicity in the case. The case involving Zimmerman, depicted by his family as being “a Spanish-speaking minority,” is under federal scrutiny. Could something like this happen here?

I started to respond, but then realized you have brought the conversation to such a juvenile level I would end it here. I do hope you have fun at the playground today. http://permainansalon.blogspot.com/

I think the question still stands; Could a white person kill an unarmed person of another ethnicity and not even be held for questioning here in San Diego county? Answer: YES, we see it regularly... Can we say the same when a person of a different ethnicity or color kills a white person? I don't think the Zahau murder was about race, it was about money, power, and influence.
