    Because the NAACP and the Black Panthers declared it racist for anyone to defend themselves against law breakers of colored origin.

    People often will rise (or fall) to expectations set upon them by others, and crime and poverty are not unique to any subset of our society. We lose something fundamental to our humanity if we take such a derivative stance as suspecting folks of wrong doing simply because of what they’re wearing on their head (whether hoodie or turban).

    As a nation and as an individual, the moral high ground is lost once it is decided to take preemptive action using deadly force. Even in the “best” case scenario (and it’s really hard to consider any possibility in the case good), there are unconscionable actions that need to be answered for. I hope I’m never in such a situation, but if I ever shoot someone in self-defense, I expect to be taken into custody—even if I didn’t kill the person.

    While there are occasions when deadly force is necessary no one should be able to use it with complete impunity.

    I have four hoodies and I’m 72. Am I in danger?

    Apparently the law as written says in effect that I can kill anyone I THINK is a danger to me, then it’s up to the state to prove I was wrong. Further, the law is so written that it favors the killer. By their logic, it would appear that I could go to Florida, kill anyone, and claim I felt threatened by him since I THOUGHT he might decide to shoot me too if I walked thru his area armed with an ice tea..

    I am reminded of the same event as Baslim, as well as three 2,000 pound bombs dropped on a restaurant in Baghdad because a guy with a mustache sat down to dinner.

    The real issue is our “national moral compass” has been spinning like a top for a long time, but especially since “change” arrived; in 1981!

    So if Zimmerman wasn’t arrested, why was he videotaped walking into the police station WEARING HANDCUFFS?
