Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

As we await a jury decision in the George Zimmerman Case, I am curious to know why other compounding charges where not included regarding the endangerment of a minor.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Many people critical of the Prosecution's case have expressed that there is no law against following anyone.

O.K., let's explore that for a moment. There are no laws against anyone visiting a friend at their home either.

However, Law enforcement routinely executes sting operations where Undercover Officers posing as minors, invite men to meet them at their home.

Soon after the subject arrives, the subject is handcuffed and booked on "Attempted  lewd & Lascivious Acts with a minor. All without any physical contact being made between the subject and the would be minor, who technically was actually an addult posing as a minor.

So now to compare....

If it is possible for an adult man who actively seeks to make sexual contact with a minor to be charged with a crime....

Ought not a 28 year old man, who seeks to make contact with a minor, with a loaded gun in tow, also be subject to some sort of attempt to commit harm to a minor as well?

And….. if Zimmerman was actively engaged in stalking a minor then everything that followed, including Trayvon Martin striking back to protect himself, should be considered the result of Zimmerman’s wrong doing.

O'Mara should be saying, "Zimmerman casued his own ass whipping" , not Trayvon caused his own death.

Zimerman should have no grounds for Self-Defense.

Was George Zimmerman undercharged?
