Well the TraYvon case is mostly going more or less peacefully. Spelling noted. Did that from memory, sorry about that, I usually take care to spel rite.
I think Zimmy should find a new place to live, like in Calgary or Thailand🙂 I have this funny feeling he won't find a hero's welcome back home in Florida.
What I also sincerely hope is he gives up hi sor in this case, stalking his victim who lashed out as best as he could before getting shot.
I believe following someone is legal. In my opinion, considering who were committing burglaries and terrorizing the neighborhood, I would expect, and hope, a neighborhood watch volunteer would follow anyone who matched their description so as he could give the police, who he called, their whereabouts.
Hindsight is always 20/20. Martin was not doing anything wrong by walking, but as soon as he lie-in-wait for Zimmerman, sucker-punched, then beat him, he then committed a felony. Zimmerman repeatedly screamed for help and no one came. It was only after that, and after it became obvious Martin was not going to stop the beating and that Zimmerman could not get away, did he resort to firing his gun once. To me, it became at that point a clear-cut case of self-defense.
The state nor Martin's supporters want to address the injuries on Zimmerman. They just want to act like Zimmerman just followed and killed out of malice, ill will, hate, etc. They even offered the completely absurd suggestion the injuries to Zimmerman were caused by a tree branch! They knew acknowledging the injuries would support the defense's claim of self-defense. The only injury to Martin were srapes on his knuckles. Does it really take a genius to see what happened?
They paint the picture of Zimmerman with 'hate' in his heart. That is just wrong. It was frustration, "They always get away" he said over the phone. He did it because he cared about his neighbor's safety, not because he hated blacks.
Tweets are now exploding everywhere threatening to kill Zimmerman, white people, 'crackas', and "Mexican burrito eating asses". That is profiling. They should be arrested like white kids who post about shooting up schools.
