king_nacho: The entire thing is just crap. In reality both were probably defending themselves, one just happened to bring a gun. So his is the story we'll hear.


If only there was a constitutionally supported right for every citizen, no matter their color or background, to bear some kind of weapon like thing.
I suspect it would make society a much more polite place.

/Truth be told: Martin probably would have shot Weissman and the media would be herpa-derping for a race war in the opposite direction.

I'm 43 and have never called 911. Then again, I've never found myself acting as a neighborhood watch or somebody who's particularly concerned about what goes on in the neighborhoods I live in.

Zimmerman made less than 6 calls per year over an 8 year period. Stop acting as if he dials 911 every time he sees a black kid walking down the street.

His parents obviously kept a close eye on him.

My 17-yo brother has a tublr where he posts surrealist art and porn.
If you shoot him for walking around in his own neighborhood, we're still going to have problems.

Probably won't happen, though- even in a hoodie, he's still white!

Congratulations on being privileged enough to live in a safe, low crime neighrbohood. But its kind of in bad taste to rub it in the faces of those who are less fortunate and encounter crime in their neighborhoods on a regular basis.

I call the cops when I see trouble. I sure as shiat don't grab a gun and go out and chase people. I didn't think "Neighborhood Watch" was supposed to do that. Just shows how naive I am, I guess. Glad we don't have that kind around here.

serpent_sky: Phinn: Even if that were true (that "it's a good idea to listen to them"), it's completely irrelevant that Zimmerman disregarded the dispatcher.

The only thing that matters is whether either man reasonably believed the other was an imminent threat of bodily harm before using force.

Following a person and asking him what he is doing is not an imminent threat of bodily harm.

Had he NOT followed the kid and approached him (who knows what was said?) nobody would be talking about this. There is a lot to be said for minding your own business and not getting involved in situations that could escalate to this level.

In public, I keep aware of my surroundings and try to not tangle with anyone because you never know what special kind of crazy they may or may not be, and why put yourself in harm's way? Anything that happened to Zimmerman was his own damned fault, and I don't care if he was assaulted or not -- he shouldn't have been in that situation to begin with.


Recent break ins / burglaries made the entire neighborhood sensitive to strangers. Zimmerman was the organizer of the local neighborhood watch. He felt it his duty to find out why the stranger was there.

9beers: DROxINxTHExWIND: Well, he admitted chasing the kid, was told not to chase the kid, continued to chase the kid, was out of his vehicle AFTER being told not to chase the kid, fought with the kid, and killed the kid.

The fact that you're still claiming he "was told not to chase the kid" shows how ignorant to the facts you're choosing to be. Go out and join the mob, maybe you'll get lucky and meet your hero, Al.


So now, I didn't hear the 911 operator tell Zimmeramn, "We don't need you to do that"?

More to the point, following someone on foot, walking, and asking him what he's doing there does not constitute an imminent threat of bodily harm.

It was not his duty to do these things, but it was his right.

Apparently, Zimmerman has a Concealed Weapon Permit. He carried it all the time, He did not "grab his gun and go out and chase people" Again, what was either of them doing illegally, or even imprudent up until one confronted the other?
 
2012-04-05 03:11:37 PM  

Silly Jesus: Mavent: Silly Jesus: That's probably dumber than a Hitler reference. Not sure.

...and yet, still 100 times smarter than anything you've posted in this thread. How many functioning braincells does it really require to understand that if Zimmerman had just minded his own business, another human being wouldn't have needlessly died? And what is so sick and twisted inside whatever passes for the souls of people like you that they literally look for reasons to justify something like this?

Let me draw a chart for you:

Zimmerman does as instructed by 911: Trayvon goes home. Nobody dies. Zimmerman doesn't have to live with the fact that he killed someone. No national outrage.

Zimmerman acts like a complete farktard: A family is devastated. A teenager dies. Zimmerman has to go into hiding.

See, that's what bothers me about some of the alleged "people" in this thread. It's of absolutely no consequence to them that a kid died, that a family is ripped apart, and that even Zimmerman will regret what happened for the rest of his life. No, it's just all about trying to provide reasons why it's a GOOD thing that a teenager died.

So nobody should ever follow anyone ever again that they deem suspicious? What happens when one of those suspicious people ends up killing someone themselves? Do you flip your position or just dig in more?

It's a shiatty situation, and I'm not happy that a man is dead, but you can't intelligently argue that nobody should ever be suspicious of anyone ever again for all eternity. That's asinine and unrealistic. I've followed people on my property before, am I a horrible person? Hell, a year ago I trailed someone through the neighborhood after my neighbors house had been broken to 3 times in 6 months. Am I a horrible person? If that person has turned on me and bashed my head into the sidewalk I would have shot them.

"Mind your own business", as you put it, means to put your head into the sand and avoid any confrontation at all costs. That's fine if you wish to do that, but it's a naive position and can be dangerous.


But by the same notion, if you're a stupid, inexperienced kid and some older guy starts following you, wouldn't you be freaked out enough to turn on him if he kept chasing you after you tried to run?

Particularly if you had no idea why the guy is following you, because you aren't doing anything wrong?

This is sounding more and more like a tragedy caused by hideously bad judgement all the way around.

Manslaughter, at the very least. Zimmerman initiated aggression by chasing Martin down. Still not murder and his motivation (racism, tired of the crime, tough guy syndrome, whatever) are irrelevant.

Just like if two guys get into what should be a piffling bar fight and one gets an unlucky punch and kills the other guy.

Both fighters are wrong, but taking a life, even accidentally, under those circumstances is criminal.

I hear "farking codes".

Silly Jesus: GriffXX: Silly Jesus: Mavent: Silly Jesus: Stalked = Walked down a public sidewalk behind him

...and then killed him. Funny how you left that part out.

Now tell me, genius: what would have happened if Zimmerman would have simply minded his own goddamn business, like the 911 operator told him too?

...and then bashed his head into the sidewalk simply for walking behind him. Funny how you left that part out.

Can nobody walk behind anyone now? It was just as much ZImmerman's property as it was Martin's. He had every right to walk down that sidewalk if he wanted to. Also, the dispatcher didn't tell him to stop, and would have no authority to do so even if she tried.

/can't tell if you are trolling or not, poe's law and all...

Heh, when I read that I pictured you walking to your car late at night being followed by a black guy in a hoodie and wondering if you would chant, "He has a right to walk behind me. He has a right to walk behind me."

Um, he does. And I can't just turn around and start beating his head into the sidewalk, otherwise he'd be allowed to shoot me. See how that works?


I don't know, man, it sure seems to me that Zimmerman's previous behavior makes it seem likely to me that he initiated a confrontation and then started getting his ass handed to him. I don't really think that fits well into the 'turned around and started beating his head into the sidewalk' scenario.

Adds "it's farking cold" to list of racist phrases not to be used.


How many white 7 -9 yr olds did he report to 911 for popping wheelies on their bikes?

what did he mean by "THESE assholes always get away"?

this "enhancement" changes nothing, Zimmerman had already shown prejudice. Whether racial or not. He had already determined that he was up to no good and high on something.
Black guy in hoodie = Thug. Then he proceeds to follow him. Then he has an argument/struggle with him and he shoots him. In the facts we know from Zimmerman's own account that Trayvon is trying to avoid him. We know he disregarded advice from the dispatcher. He was a vigilante. And Fla has laws against armed vigilantism.

Tell me again how that fight ended. And how it would have ended had Zimmerman just left Trayvon the hell alone.

How did it begin?


Not sure if you're pretending to be an idiot, or you're the real deal. You honestly know nothing about this topic, yet you're posting? It started when Zimmerman saw Martin walking down the street, called 911, was told to leave Martin alone, and then proceeded to confront him anyway. Which you could have learned by reading any of the six thousand articles on the topic.
 
2012-04-05 03:12:37 PM  

Mavent: Thoguh: Whatever happened between Zimmerman and Martin is tragic, and is also under investigation. The mob basically calling for his head because they have convicted him in their minds is starting to get downright scary.

How dare we have opinions. Clearly, justice should be decided by a handful of NRA nutjobs who convinced a bunch of elderly retards that allowing people to shoot whoever they feel like shooting as long as they 'feel threatened' is a good idea.

I disagree, nonetheless. He felt it was his duty, well, good for him. Anyone who organizes a neighborhood watch and carries a loaded gun with him is going to be nothing more than a power-hungry loon who couldn't pass the test to get into the police academy or something. Serious personality flaws going on there.

If I were walking down the street and someone accosted me like that, I'd ignore them. If they so much as laid a hand on me because I was ignoring them, I'd do everything in my power to get them subdued and to not be a threat to me. (Which would ultimately suck since I'm a small girl, but I'd do it, nonetheless.) A lot of people would. Who's to say he didn't say something threatening and grab the kid's arm? We don't know. But that type of person? It seems awfully likely to me.

No one knows, exactly - and won't until all the facts have been examined. Zimmerman's pattern of previous behavior, and the behavior he exhibited on the night of the killing speak to his frame of mind. Whether or not he was acting properly in terms of serving in a neighborhood watch role may speak to the rectitude of his subsequent actions. It's not all that simple.

There are stories about him calling 911 a bunch of times in a year, it isn't like I just made that up. I am not as personally invested in this story as you so might not have the latest information. In my mind at the end of the day the guy chose to follow and instigate something with a kid while he was armed. Neighborhood watch doesn't mean neighborhood armed vigilante, the "watch" part is integral.

It was an unfortunate situation, yes. It comes down to who threw the first punch (or kick or shove or whatever) and what immediately followed. If we are arguing this on the basis of what is legal, and what happened is ZImmerman followed, Martin attacked to such a degree that Zimmerman felt he was going to die, Zimmerman shot...then it was an unfortunate series of events where no criminal charges apply. I think that this is what will be determined.

I don't understand how "following someone" isn't stalking, harassment, or both.

If it was your 17 year old daughter walking around your neighborhood and someone was following her, would you tell her "don't worry honey, what this guy's doing is completely legal, you have nothing to worry about."

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Zimmeman should have been able to approach and ask a young person what he's doing, without getting attacked over it. If Martin would have just left Zimmermang alone and stated where he was going, instead of attacking him, he'd still be alive and Zimmermang wouldn't be recieving death threats


Exactly. I have a teen, and after this incident I sat down with them and made sure they understand that if an older gentleman is following you slowly in their car, and get out and want to talk to you, don't run or fight back. Especially if they have a gun, just stop and do whatever the man says, otherwise things might turn out badly.

Adds "it's farking cold" to list of racist phrases not to be used.

How many white 7 -9 yr olds did he report to 911 for popping wheelies on their bikes?

what did he mean by "THESE assholes always get away"?

this "enhancement" changes nothing, Zimmerman had already shown prejudice. Whether racial or not. He had already determined that he was up to no good and high on something.
Black guy in hoodie = Thug. Then he proceeds to follow him. Then he has an argument/struggle with him and he shoots him. In the facts we know from Zimmerman's own account that Trayvon is trying to avoid him. We know he disregarded advice from the dispatcher. He was a vigilante. And Fla has laws against armed vigilantism.


WHAT IF ... just a thought ... Zimmerman saw someone he didn't know in his neighborhood. Maybe he did make a judgment based on the fact that that persons demographic is (as a fact) know to commit a disproportionally high level of crime. Or maybe because he was wearing a hoodie he didn't even know his demographic. Then, maybe when he asked him what he was up to, Martin got belligerent? And as ACTUAL EYE WITNESSES HAVE SAID Link (new window) Martin attacked Zimmerman and pinned him on the ground ... ALL OF THIS FOR ASKING A QUESTION? ON THE STREET? I didn't realize it was a against anyone's human rights.

Then lets suppose that before any actual FACTS are know ... knowing that there are mindless idiots like yourself the media creates the exact narrative that you just quoted.

Lets also suppose that they have a history of doing this and being wrong. (Tawana Brawley, duke lacrosse, Gabby Gifords, ... etc etc)

SweetSilverBlues: Just like if two guys get into what should be a piffling bar fight and one gets an unlucky punch and kills the other guy.


Interesting point.

So, if I am in a bar, some guy decides to pick a fight with me, swings first, I swing back, and he dies, I should go to prison for manslaughter?

kingoomieiii: tgregory: I like his Twitter handle, too: no_limit_nubian

His parents obviously kept a close eye on him.

My 17-yo brother has a tublr where he posts surrealist art and porn.
If you shoot him for walking around in his own neighborhood, we're still going to have problems.

Probably won't happen, though- even in a hoodie, he's still white!



No doubt. I'm not saying those things are bad, just that it's an entirely different picture than what's painted on the news.

I'm sure this guy in a gated community had better things to do than add "murder" to his list of lifetime achievements.
