Thread: Zimmerman/Martin Thread

A 17 year old kid was walking to the store from his dad's house to buy a can of iced tea and a bag of skittles. The Neighborhood Watch captain felt the kid looked suspicious - he was walking "slowly" and was wearing a hoodie. So the Neighborhood watch captain called police. Police told him to stay in the car, an officer was on the way. Instead, this guy got out of the car and started chasing the kid. He eventually caught the kid, who he outweighed by 100 pounds, a fight ensued, and the guy shot the kid.
Anyone wanna guess what color the kid was?
So far, this guy is claiming "self-defense." I say, Cold Blooded Murder. It looks like the police are completely bungling the investigation.
If this were my kid? Mr. Zimmerman would be erased. I doubt I'd be able to wait for the law to decide.
What are your thoughts?Oh, there's champagne in the Champagne Room... but you don't want champagne.

The problem is without such clear cut rules that remove the "duty to retreat" and hold you immune from all civil and criminal penalties as long as the evidence supports the claim of SD, you can saver your family and at the same time lose your life as you have known it prior to having to make such a call.
Self Defense is the most fundamental rights of man, and one should never be made a victim by the "justice system" for exercising that most basic of rights.

In this case Z's lawyers didn't ask and later stated that things just need to cool down for now.
He's certainly safer in custody than he would be if he were released and as soon as he walked out of the door the Race Hustlers would be calling for his head. Again that is.

[QUOTE=WildRose;101417191]We shall see. Sadly I believe that Politics became the driving force in his arrest and being charged.
They judge didn't review the evidence, he simply acted on the recommendation of the Prosecutor and the Defense did not challenge it.[/QUOTE]
how do you know this?

I posted it.
As for number two, the spokesman asked specifically abou the Sentinel article which detailed out that Zimmerman was attacked while returning to his vehicle. The Spokesman confirmed that the evidence was consistent with that version of events.
