    Have you submitted Trayvon for sainthood yet? It surely must be top priority nowadays because he was "murdered" by that "white Hispanic" guy.

    I know emotions are running high. But can Sunny Hostin let the other attorneys speak. It is annoying when she interrupts and speaks over them when they are offering an opinion. It's rude.

    It is very tragic what happened to this young man, Trayvon Martin.
    Killed for absolutely no reason, just working down the street going home.
    His killer, George Zimmerman described him as “suspicious”.
    As much as I watch CNN and 360, I think your reporting is not getting to the real truth.
    There is no doubt Trayvon looked “suspicious” because:
    – he is black
    – wearing a hoody
    – over 6ft tall
    – night time
    Any white person in America, who says based on the 4 points listed above, will not come to the same conclusion as Zimmerman is a liar. And this is the bottom line. In the eyes of white America, a 6ft tall black male, wearing a hoody, working down the street at night is guilty, up to him to prove he was not doing anything wrong, assuming he is alive.
    Trayvon was profiled by the racism of the American society; Zimmerman is just the latest visible face of it.

    GIVE HILARY SOME SLACK: What Hilary Rosen really meant was that althought Mrs. Romney has been a wonderful mom, she has not experienced the financial struggles of lower and middle class mothers. They have to work outside the home for minimum wages and still come home and have to be mothers to their kids and take care of the household. Many times barely earning enough income to pay pay rent and buy food. They have to do all the wonderful things Mrs. Romney does for her kids and husband but without the benefits of being millionaires. The point Hilary was making is that is you have not lived as a lower and middle class woman, how can you convey said experiences to anyone. Sincerely, Polo Sanchez. Waiting for your comments.

    Since more is being known about what lead up to Trayvon Martin's death, that George Zimmerman pursued and attacked Trayvon, I believe that Zimmerman should have listened to what he was told–not to go after Trayvon. I believe G. Zimmerman should be held accountable for shooting and killing Trayvon Martin.

    I have not seen anywhere whether or not Trayvon Martin lived in that neighborhood or needed to pass through that street to get where he lived. I personally believe he was murdered but if there had been prior burgleries I can see someone on watch overreacting.

    What’s your deal people….How can you compare Ann Romney that can afford everything she wants and all the help she needs to raise her kids (good for her) – to most women that have a job and raise a family …it’s not the same league ….. that’s what Hillary Rosen said and she is absolutely right……get off her back….

    The way the Democrats treated Hillary will may be a good enough reason for me to vote republican this time.
