SANFORD -- Respondents to an InstaPoll on Headline Surfer are in a virtual deadlock as to whether the charge of second-degree murder for Trayvon Martin is appropriate. The poll was created 8:59 p.m. Wednesday, April 11, asking: Do you agree with the 2nd degree murder charge against George Zimmerman in Trayvon Martin's death?

To the first choice: Yes, he committed a crime and must be held accountable, 401 or 50% chose that choice.

In the second choice, No, he was standing his ground and his actions were lawful, 399 or 50% chose that choice.

DELAND, Fla. -- There are far more questions than answers to why an Ormond Beach husband and wife died shortly after they were found unconscious outside their maroon SUV on the side of I-4 eastbound with the flashers on, which drew the attention of a Florida trooper on New Year's Eve. A full 48 hours later there's absolutely nothing new as to how or why they died.

SANFORD, Fla. -- Hillary Clinton is speaking to a large overflow partisan crowd inside the Sanford Civic Center here in downtown Sanford saying she would defeat ISIS, mentioning the Pulse massacre in nearby Orlando and that she was a US Senator during the 9/11 that toppled the World Trade Center towers.

Then she quickly turned to gun violence, norting Trayvon Martin was gunned down in Sanford. It is Sanford where the Black Lives Matter movement was borne as a result, but she avoided any mention of it.
