What are your thoughts on the case?
Did it ever occur once to anyone that if Trayvon had told Zimmerman that
he was staying with his father in the complex that Trayvon would still
be alive. I do not believe for a moment that Zimmerman shot this young
man because he wanted to. I believe he was given no choice.
If you're acting on behalf of the neighborhood watch, it would seem
logical to identify yourself as such to avoid any confusion. If Trayvon
would have known that he was acting on behalf of the neighborhood,
maybe he wouldn't have responded in a "none of your business" kind of
way and volunteered that he was staying with his dad or whatever. But
it does seem likely that because the information wasn't communicated,
Trayvon felt threatened by some guy following him...and responded in a
hostile way which resulted in George also responding in a similar way.
Unfortunately, Trayvon was at a disadvantage in this altercation and
lost. So, is someone at fault? With only one side of the story, it's
difficult to tell who started the violence. But whoever that is...I'd
say is to blame. Violence isn't the solution to crime. And it doesn't
make sense to me that someone trying to prevent crime is seeking out
situations to commit a crime.
One simple question...why was Zimmerman carrying a gun? Why do
Americans carry guns? This kid did not deserve to die....he could have
landed hiimself in a hospital with a broken nose, but not dead. He's
dead because of the gun. Thats it, there is nothing else to say...there
is nothing to have to figure out..... No other country in the world
carry guns like Americans do..and thats why the rest of the world is not
surprised that America's news ends up STILL being, who got shot
today??sounds like a leisure activity...when will America learn to get
rid of guns??
