    If I were being beatin to such an extent that I feared for my life and had the means to end it…I would be more of of fool not to. Even if the modern liberal agenda would have us believe that skin color alone should decide who lives or dies…sounds like the America from 60 years ago, doesn’t it.

    Mr. Zimmerman’s trials are ongoing. The civil case is unlikely to have validity and would be a waste of money and time. The civil case will probably bring about a different outcome as in the OJ case. He’ll always be looking over his shoulder.
    A conversation is going on over the shooting, the differences in skin color, the states, and more. Mr. Zimmerman may have done liberals a favor by angering blacks enough that they’ll come out in larger numbers in 2014.
    I’ve commented on this today under Alacraz and Arial, but the State of Florida is not the problem, its the state of politics nationwide and the lack of civility or respect in how neighbors interact in private as well as public life. Most folks are great, but even a minority of mean spirited people can cause a lot of ills.

    Are any of you pinheads aware that Zimmerman took a black girl to his prom, grew up with blacks in his household and that he was mentoring two black kids? Have you learned about the cell phone pictures on Trayvon’s cell phone? As for Florida, all states allow self-defense to include using deadly force. Stop being divisive and finding race hate in events that have NOTHING to do with race! Are you also aware that approximately 90% of blacks killed – are killed by other blacks? Who are the real racists in this country? Hint. It ain’t George Zimmerman.

    Well, Florida apparently welcomes vigilanteism. Yes, you too can help keep YOUR streets “safe” from “their kind”! Just make sure the other guy doesn’t live to tell his side of the story, claim “I was afeared for mah life!”, and find a sympathetic jury of your own kind, and the state of Florida will pat you on the back and send you on your way.
    Just better keep one hand on your holster at all times, buckaroo, because you never know when you’ll be the one on the wrong end of the gunsights- and as the old Western movies have taught us, it’s the guy left standing who’s in the right!

    The issue has nothing to do with either individual’s past. It is that Zimmerman made a conscious decision that resulted in the death of someone else. Had he done what he was supposed to – call the police and allow them to approach and question a suspicious individual – Martin would be alive because he wouldn’t have felt threatened by Zimmerman.
    If you are driving and hit a patch of ice, and the resulting accident kills someone, it is an accident only. If you make a decision to drive while drunk, drive recklessly, or drive while texting, you are responsible for that death and need to face up to it. The accident may look identical, and the other person is still dead, but in three of the above cases that death was preventable, as was Martin’s, if the right decision had been made.

    Great comment, Fourcrows!

    It should not be a question now of what happened. The trial is over.
    What needs to be done is to change the Florida law so this does not happen again.
    It is sad that a person is dead. That it was a teen, makes no difference. Even a trained professional law person cannot distinguish between a 17 and an 18 year old. I have dealt with 15 year olds who were more dangerous than a Mafia hit man. In fact, I know of a 17 year old who was a Mafia hit man.

    uh, apparently the jury didn’t see Zimmerman as the one “starting” the confrontation. He was investigating what he thought was suspicious behavior. That may not have been a smart decision, but it wasn’t “starting a confrontation.” Trayvon may have been an “innocent,” but that didn’t justify his pouncing on Zimmerman, which is what the jury saw. Both were at fault; in that case, it’s a draw. Tragic, yes, but still a draw.

    “Exactly what law do you want changed, Justice?”
    The “Stand your ground” law which does not require a person to believe his life is in danger in order to react with deadly force.

    In 1966 I got stationed at Ft Rucker for training. We traveled on weekends, and Alabama, Georgia, even Mississippi had paid attention to that new fangled "Civil Rights Act’. It was in FLORIDA that i saw my first “segregated” drinking fountain and restroom. A hose bib with filthy hose for “colored”, and a refrigerated water cooler for “Whites only”. The restroom for “colored” was a single outhouse for both sexes to use, while the toilets for the “whites” was air conditioned.

    Have to go to Florida in a couple weeks. While TSA makes “packing” difficult, I’d be more tempted to carry there than anywhere else, another Zimmerman “neighborhood watch” might be around.

    Here’s a thought. If Martin was sooooo afraid, he had a cell phone in his hand, why didn’t he call 911? He didn’t. Instead he confronted someone and started assaulting him.
    Lull that one over.

    1. Billiy, Martin WAS a “lawful resident”, with relatives.

    2. In the 911 call, Zimmerman didn’t identify a WHITE GUY in a hoodie as looking “suspicious”. He’s the one who profiled by race first, activity second.

    “Because he knew from past experience that had he done so, HE would have been arrested for being Black.”
    You have some proof of this malarkey, no doubt.

    Dear Mr. Catalino:
    Sorry to burst your hoplophobic bubble, but sensible people feel a lot safer in Florida than they do in, say, Illinois, where they’re legally unable to use a gun to defend themselves if attacked.
    Sensible people also know they’re a lot less likely to die from violence in Florida than in a 2nd-Amendment-hostile state like Illinois.
