Trayvon Martin, an unarmed, black teen was shot and killed by Neighborhood Watch Coordinator George Zimmerman on Feb 26, 2012. He said he was following Trayvon because he looked suspicious and didn't belong in the gated community where Trayvon was visiting his relatives.  Some call this racial profiling. Do you?

Zimmerman pleaded self-defense and was acquitted, due in part to the "Stand Your Ground" law in Florida, which gives residents the right to immediately shoot if they feel threatened. What do you think of this law?
