CBS News has confirmed that neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman will be charged in the February shooting death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla.

According to a senior law enforcement official, the special prosecutor in the case, Angela Corey, is expected to announce later Wednesday afternoon that Zimmerman will face state charges. The number or nature of the charges was not immediately known.

Zimmerman says he shot Martin in self-defense after following the teenager in a Sanford gated community outside Orlando on Feb. 26. He said he was returning to his truck when Martin attacked him and that he shot the unarmed teen during the fight. He was briefly held by police but was not arrested, in part because of Florida's "stand your ground" self-defense law.

Knock me over with a feather! He's turned himself in and he is in police custody.
Abike is right though. Being charged and being found guilty are two different things, hello Casey Anthony!

He has been charged yes, but he has to be proven guilty in the court of law. FL state is now doing what they should have done in the first place. Judging from how the police department has behaved right from the start, I will not be at all shocked if he is found 'NOT GUILTY'. This only goes to show that even in 2012, we as black people still have a long way to go.

Did he turn himself in BECAUSE he is afraid of being lynched by the public?????? #FoodForThought!

Police custody might just be the ONLY place he is safe now! UNLESS he can afford a facial cosmetics surgery! Because I am sure there are millions of Niggers READY to put one lead in his brain, IF they see him on the streets! #IAmJustSaying! Y'all know how me thinks sweat:

Think about it sha, you know all the gun-totting niggas that are waiting to sight this fellow? Even in polive custody sef, I am sure na isolation unit dem go put am, if not he is a DEAD MAN WALKING! No be so?

Nna, E be like say you no dey watch CSIs, Law & orders and NCIS and all the crazy law/crime-based Tv things out there! lolol.

I agree sha, too much of law/crime shows make me think the worst of everything! smh.
The other day, I had to give a guy a ride, and when he was like why did I wait for my friend to confirm on the phone who he was by describing his clothes to me before I allowed him into my car, I told him to picture this scenario: IF he is the wrong guy....he lets me drive off, when I am on a lonely stretch of road, he pops out a .9mm and tells me to stop the car. He either puts a lead in my head after stealing my stuff, OR he jacks me out of the car to molest, maim and and kill me and dump my body int he street below. OR he could inject me with a paralyzing drug and take me to his barn and Ted Bundy me! OR he could just for the heck of it strangle me and time how long it would take me to bleed out!

my dear, the dude swallowed hard and said I got a wild imagination. I told him Thanks for the compliment. That I am glad my creative skills in narrations is still intact! lolololol :roll :roll

I should write a Nollywood Homicide/horror story, I can even add the costumes sef for jara! Dress squirting blood gore! hee hee hee
