WoW! Way to close out an article, say he was shot because he was black. He
wasn't shot because he was black. He was shot because of the proven tussle
they had on the ground. He was approached because to the "Watchman" he
looked suspicious. He looked suspicious because he jumped a fence to a secured
neighborhood from the 7-11 and had a hoodie up over his head. Call it racial
profiling, too bad. Then tell the thugs not to always where a hoodie up on
their heads whether it is raining or not. Zimmerman probably made a dumb
decision in firing the gun, he also made a dumb decision not listening to the
911 operator, and he made a dumber decision in engaging with this kid. However,
the kid is dead because he was a punk and couldn't just turn around when
first asked questions by Zimemrman and answer them and say, "Hey, my Dad
lives here and I am just going home to his house", could have even walked
with Zimemrman over there just to show it was true. By the way, it would have
happened with a white guy or hispanic also.
I wonder what percentage of black on white/hispanic crimes are investigated as
hate crimes and what percntage of white/hispanice on black crimes are
investigated as hate crimes?
@chris b maybe rather then make vague innuendoes you should go look it up
and tell us Chris, or is there a reason you don't want to actually know the
@utahrbuin amazing that you seem to no as fact what no one else does. It
must be nice to be so all knowing.
@UtahBruin - I agree. Zimmerman was in no way trying to hide. For some reason
this kid decided to hide from Zimmerman and then jump onto him attacking him.
If someone is clearly looking at me and following what I do, doesn't logic
to say to ask the person what they are doing?If someone is looking
at me and watching what I do, what justification is there to hide around the
corner and then attack him? Just ask him why he is watching you. Why attack
Why on Earth is DN still using that very misleading photo of poor Trayvon when
he was 13 years old. Truth is, he was much more grown up when the incident
happened. All evidence I've seen points to Zimmerman as having acted
reasonably. If some changing evidence comes out later, then fine. Hopefully
justice prevails. However the evidence of political correctness and fear of
riots might rule the day causing a conviction. We will see, but if I'm
right, (and I hope I'm not) I'll say it now. Rodney King or O.J.
Simpson anyone?P.S. I sure hope the Judge in the case does not
allow that picture of Trayvon be on display during the trial.
@m.g scott So I have to wonder do you believe in the death penalty? if so
how do you square that with your clear belief that the judaical system sometimes
gets it wrong?
What's upsetting is how quickly our political leaders jumped to conclusions
without having all the facts, and how the media lied.
@worfjumped to conclusions? kind of like the posters on this thread that
hav decided they already have all he facts? kind of like you yourself have done
before on this very subject?
