The potential corruption within the PD is starting to make me even madder than the shooting.

The screaming, to me, doesn't sound like fighting. I don't hear the breaking up of sounds of getting hit or struggling to get away or struggling to get a gun. They're kind of straight screams. What's your take on that? I think that might be the breaker for the case. But I'm not sure if anybody hears it the same way I do.

Spike Lee re-Tweets Zimmerman's address...except it isn't his address.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/...address-trayv/

Great to see the usual suspects (Jackson, Sharpton, Lee) are fanning the flames and inciting emotion without having all the facts.

Filmmaker Spike Lee made waves on Twitter last week when he re-tweeted to his 200,000 followers (h/t Twitchy) what was thought to be George Zimmerman's home address in Sanford, Florida. Mr. Zimmerman told Sanford police last month that he fatally shot 17 year old Trayvon Martin in self-defense.

However, the Edgewater Circle address Mr. Lee re-tweeted out is not part of the gated Retreat at Twin Lakes where the shooting took place and where Mr. Zimmerman lives. The area is not even a gated community.

In fact, I took a drive to that Edgewater Circle address that so many on Twitter re-tweeted and cursed, and I discovered through a neighbor, named Tim, who lives across the street from the address, that not only does George Zimmerman not live at the lakeside house but a woman by the name of Elaine does.

According to Tim, a number of news agencies drove through looking for Mr. Zimmerman. While it was not wise to incite the masses to go to an address he thought was Mr. Zimmerman's to begin with, Mr. Lee should should still "do the right thing" and give the actual resident at the address above some peace and apologize for disrupting her life.

It's been a good thing that Sharpton has shined a light on this issue. If not for his and other's efforts the national spotlight wouldn't have forced action on what has so far been a true travesty of justice.

I have a bad feeling that Zimmerman is not going to jail, things are getting worse for the Martin-camp every day.

Even more, the lead investigator said that he did not find Zimmerman's account of events to be credible.
