    FBI may charge George Zimmerman with hate crime

    'SANFORD, Fla. — WFTV has learned charges against George Zimmerman could be getting more serious.

    State prosecutors said Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman, profiled and stalked 17-year-old Trayvon Martin before killing him, so the FBI is now looking into charging him with a hate crime...

    FBI investigators are actively questioning witnesses in the retreat at the Twin Lakes neighborhood, seeking evidence for a possible federal hate crime charge.

    Martin was unarmed when he was shot to death, police said, and some accuse Zimmerman of targeting the teenager solely because of the color of his skin.

    WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said federal prosecutors would have to prove the hate crime to charge Zimmerman, though.

    “What the government would have to prove is that Mr. Zimmerman acted out of hatred toward African-Americans. That's why he came into contact with him. That's why he shot and killed him," Sheaffer said....'

    I'd bet that by now, Zimmerman is wishing that he had stayed in the house and watched the Weather Channel, or,,, Worlds Dumbest Hillbilly's.

    Variable clouds - should be sunny, but there was rain this morning... typically weather for the Bay of Naples.

    hope it warms up so I can hit the beach for my one day off...
