Before we go to far, this story from Fox should be read by Conservatives. I used Fox so conservatives will believe it.^http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/05/19/woman-gets-20-years-for-firing-warning-shot/^As a white male who spent A LOT of time in 1960’s Mississippi, I understand and appreciate this cartoon. Back then, warnings to black youth included – “Don’t look a white person in the eye and don’t glare or look angry at them.” “Don’t argue if they accuse you of something, just apologize and try to get away when you can.”^I’ve seen black MEN slapped by white children and there was nothing they could do about it without fear of reprisal. While the world is much improved since then, it is still far from the point it needs to reach. ^ConserveGov – if you were being followed home by a man in a car what would you do? If you were near to your home, would you lead the man to your door? Trayvon should have called 911 himself. He could have also returned to the store where he bought his skittles and asked them to call the police. He didn’t think of that, and after being ADVISED by the 911 operator that they "Didn’t need him(Zimmerman) to do that(follow Martin), he got out of his car to talk to Martin. Had he OBSERVED and REPORTED the way neighborhood watches are supposed to, Martin would not be dead and wouldn’t have had anyone to call a cracker. Had he not gotten out of his car and confronted Martin, Martin would not have felt he needed to protect himself from a person that was behaving like a predator.Had Martin just run into his father’s house to escape the ‘predator’, Martin would not be dead. Martin wasn’t an adult, Zimmerman was. But no adult decisions were made in this instance.^When a black woman with no previous police record “Stands Her Ground” against an abusive husband and shoots a WALL gets 20 years, while a man who pursued and confronted another ‘man’ gets off after killing him, it is hard to think this law is being applied in an objective or civil manner.Respectfully,C.
