How did a kid armed with Skittles and an ice tea get gunned down by an overeager neighborhood watch captain? And why didn’t police detain shooter George Zimmerman?

In case you have been following this story for a while or you only recently read about it (it has been “blowing up” across the internet and news programs, a very good thing) but this article provides a lot of explanation for most of the thoughts/questions that you, like me, have probably had. One such explanation is of Florida’s really loose gun laws that have contributed to the fact that George Zimmerman has not been arrested. Who, I have read, has gone into hiding. Probably because he realizes that someone could probably just approach him, create conflict and shoot him in “self-defense” like he did to Martin.
