Trayvon Martin Killing: Why George Zimmerman Could Still Totally Get Away With It

In light of the news yesterday about new evidence from Trayvon Martin's girlfriend, one might think 28-year-old neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman is done for. He isn't.


Yesterday's story revealed that the 17-year-old Martin was on the phone with his girlfriend when Zimmerman killed him with a single bullet to the chest last month. She told ABC, "Trayvon said, 'What, are you following me for?' and the man said, 'What are you doing here?' Next thing I hear is somebody pushing, and somebody pushed Trayvon because the headset just fell. I called him again and he didn't answer the phone."
