Trayvon Martin's Dad on Zimmerman's 'A-Holes' Comment:
Anderson: One of the other things that really caught my attention that he says on these 911 tapes to police. He says, 'These a-holes, they always get away.' Now, I don't know when he said they, I'm not sure if he meant African American males, if he meant teenagers. I don't know what was in his mind but those were the words he used. When you heard that what did you think?
Tracy Martin: That Zimmerman had in his mind at that point that he wasn't going to let whoever that individual was get away. That he just wanted confrontation. He was told by the dispatcher stand down, don't follow this individual, he pursued it anyway.

While in Vegas, Howard and Johnson visited a storefront chapel where they renewed their vows. They also updated their facebook status frequently with photos and notes about their trip.
Johnson even updated his status at one point to say: "Bout to hit the Strip Club."
