  •  GZ was outside the neighborhood watch guidelines (0+ / 0-)

    but he wasn't outside the law.

    •  Not as the laws & justice system were employed in (0+ / 0-)

      this shooting I would agree.

      Now a teenager is needlessly dead and a reckless aggressive common sense challenged buttinski is loose among with a notch on his safetyless hollow point loaded pistol.

      Is he walking his pit bull, Oso, in a neighborhood near you?

      •  Did GZ deserve to die? (0+ / 0-)

        Lets say GZ didn't have a pistol but did the same things.

        Would you defend TM for kicking his ass, and putting him
        in the hospital?

        •  Yes. zHole could have identified himself as watch, (2+ / 0-)

          told Martin the cpos were on the way, kept his distance and simply retreated, knowing the police would take charge of z's reported non-incedent.

          But why hospital? It has been well established that zHoles injuries were superficial. No medico maintains he needed more than minor 1st aid and z refuses going to the ER. At the time he killed Martin his injuries, however he got them, didn't even require bandaids.

          If Trayvon had survived that night this may all have boiled down to dueling SYG defenses.

          z is a nosey prick and a good ass kicking would do him a world of good.

          as it happens. A creepy ass cracker got away with murder.

          You know it, I know it.

        •  That way they'd both be alive to testify, eh? (1+ / 0-)

          So I would much rather have had that scenario play out, that much I can say with certainty.

          You know what? I accept the jury's decision in the sense that reasonable doubt applies, and I have personally sat in a jury room in bitter argument over that very concept.

          But I do not feel compelled to spend my free time defending Mr Zimmerman's acts as being justified beyond all reasonable doubt.

          To be honest, watching this compulsion on display always leaves me with reasonable doubt as to the genuine altruistic nature of the highly motivated Zimmerman defender

        •  To be clearer, nobody needed to die or would have, (1+ / 0-)

          but for zHoles reckless and lethal choices.

          And if you wrote your post asking me if zHole deserved to die and then thru in does he deserve an ass beating to trick me into a 'death to zHole' answer...fuck you.
