HolyGod-"But he didn't deserve to die. You think he deserved to die?"
Of course I don`t think he deserved to die. (Neither do I think Zimmerman deserved a beat-down.) But it doesn`t matter what I think. It doesn`t matter what he `deserved`. He attacked someone, and got killed in the process.
In real life, doing dumb things sometimes equals getting hurt or killed. The smart thing to do is not do dumb things.
Zimmerman had a history of calling 911 (that whole neighborhood had a history of calling 911, as the vast majority of 911 calls from that neighborhood WAS NOT from Zimmerman). Zimmerman also had a history of NOT killing people, and a history of living in peace amoungst many races.
What was the ONE difference in this instance? He got attacked and acted in self-defense (as the evidence points to at this point).
