Is the lead too long?[edit]

The current lead has WAY too much detail in it, in my opinion. Per MOS:INTRO, I'd like to shorten it to a single paragraph, or two paragraphs at the most. My plan is to extend the opening paragraph slightly and move as much content as I can elsewhere. (The process will likely take a few intermediate edits). Any objections?

UPDATE: done There are other improvements, too. StrokeOfMidnight (talk) 03:02, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Adding additional information to shooting section[edit]

Hey everyone. I am adding information about how George Zimmerman described Trayvon Martin wearing a hoodie to the "Shooting" section. I feel like that is relevant to add since athletes wearing hoodies at sporting events became a symbol bringing awareness to Martin's death. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Abamzai (talkcontribs) 04:00, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 7 February 2017[edit]

I request that under the section: analysis of charges they should add that in American democracy there is freedom of movement. I believe that this basic right belonging to Martin was violated by Zimmerman. [1] Allyborghi (talk) 18:59, 7 February 2017 (UTC)

I believe that in the Analysis of charges section they should mention that Zimmerman violated Martin's basic right to freedom of movement when he attacked Martin.
