    Why the frack would you charge at somebody who is armed? Or why would you charge at anybody at all? Does it make you feel big or manly? Well, look at you now.

    1) Don`t steal other people`s belongings.
    2) Don`t charge an armed man.

    Barring some evidence to the contrary, this was justifiable.

    Where is all the sympathy? There was TONS of evidence which showed trayvon as a P.O.S with a criminal record, who was physically beating zimmerman when he was shot.

    This poor white kid with a clean record, was unarmed and never laid a finger on the guy who killed him. Where is his sympathy? All the people who were screaming that race was involved with the trayvon shooting won`t dare say that race was involved here.



    (for the record: based on the limited evidence I know about this case, I say the kid got what he deserved)

    honkeylips - The answer is simple, there are no "white leaders". There may be leaders who happen to be white, but they can`t support others "just because they are white" like black leaders do.

    I work in a state prison. I get this stuff all the time. The parents of vicious criminals often refuse to believe that their son or daughter is anything but a little angel. Get real. Teach your kid not to steal or threaten adults because he/she might end up dead or in prison.

    Yeah, every news story claims the criminal ... oops ... "victim" ... was an honor student, volunteer at a charitable home, etc, etc, etc.

    Then why were they a criminal. I`m not saying petty theft deserves dieing, but let`s be factual: he was a criminal guilty of stealing, and the guy that shot him was a criminal - guilty of manslaughter (that doesn`t magically make the first guy innocent).

    "The answer is simple, there are no `white leaders`"
    Wait wait wait, what about the President of The United S.... nvm.

    No, but seriously, if their skin colors were reversed, then all hell would break loose. We know this first hand from recent events. You can`t call for equality then be one sided about it. Nig.gers.

    Expect to see more of this. Not because "Stand your ground" is good or because of backlash for Trayvon, if you raise a generation with no sense of accountability this is what you get. They attack anyone they want because they`ve never had to suffer negative consequences. "they`re special little snowflakes". Add to this the glorification of the THUG culture and you have a recipe for disaster. I weep for the future.

    I`ve got no problem killing someone in the middle of a criminal act.

    It`s when you just walk up to someone minding his own business, harass him, start a fight, then shoot him when you start getting your butt kicked, that I take issue with.

    Not one word of what you said made any sense. It happened before Traythug was shot BTW corky.

    Your logic is hypocritical the evidence showed he did not start the fight Traythug did which so happens to be a criminal act.

    Where is this BS gonna stop!?
    "My dear sweet baby Hank was just raping that woman a little bit when she brutally stabbed him neck with a nail file and MURDERED HIM! And why was she carrying that nail file in the first place? It`s obvious she was planning to kill someone. My dear baby Hank was such a nice, sweet, innocent boy, and this horrible person murdered him!

    JUSTICE FOR HANK!!!!!!!!"

    @Mcgovern

    Correction, the truth is that not a word i said made sense to you. But thats hardly suprising is it? apart from the fact that we sit on the other side of the fence, quite a lot of things don`t make sense to you now do they?

    p.s. it might have happend before Zimmerman, but the verdict came out after Zimmerman, and that precedent has now been set. (mainly due to the large publicity, it`s not like anyone killed someone before and didn`t recieve any legal punishment for it)

    The BS is only going to get worse. in the case of a rape or self defence meh, as long as solid evidence is provided. i couldn`t give a poo, but when it comes to vague, unsported claims i get weary. when it comes to laws the goverment imposes i`d say were pretty much all victims. Didn`t think that one through now did we?

    it wasn`t :| the kid was stealing his car. im not saying that he should have been shot. im saying that both cases are equally tragic. neither deserves more coverage than the other. im also saying that Z MAY HAVE been racially profiling T. I don`t know because im not Z. i dont even really care. people need to focus on other things before we try to focus of things like this...

    If you can`t be bothered to watch the clip, or look into the news report, please stop acting like you know the facts.

    After trial and two days of deliberations in December 2009, jurors acquitted Scott on the manslaughter charge

    No car is worth killing over, that`s what insurance is for. If it was a home invasion that`s a different story, you don`t take chances on those.

    There was plenty of physical evidence and witness testimony that Trayvon assaulted George Zimmerman. Assault is a crime, and in this case it put Zimmerman in fear of his life. Also it was brought out during the trial that Trayvon had more than enough time to get home, but decided to doubled back to confront Zimmerman.

    Well, old man, I think you just summed up the core principle that America is built upon.
    It`s a good part of the reason why we were able to bail your asses out twice. Most of our recruits already knew how to shoot.

    It just pisses me off that there was no national coverage of this. This man was never hit by this kid. Zimmerman was hit repeatedly by asswipe Martin, and there was and still is a lynch mob after him. The message is, if you`re black you can be as racist as you want to be, it`s your right. If you`re white, you`re already racist.
    I don`t "owe" anyone, anything.
