3. According to Zimmerman's account, he shot Trayvon as he was getting his head bashed against the sidewalk -> "He shot him because he feared for his life. You can never say there was intent to kill Trayvon, because you never know what's going through people's heads especially in extremely intense environments. Don't judge Zimmerman's assessment of his head wound either-- how could you? You never know if it'll kill you!"
Trayvon could've technically sprinted to his home in less than a minute, if you line up all of the timestamps of everything he would've been in the clear (as if he'd ever be able to calculate all of this in a matter of seconds)-> "What terrible judgement of him! Why didn't he run home? Why didn't he politely answer to Zimmerman in a respectful manner? Well it's obvious what was going through his head-- it must've been because he felt he needed to prove something / get street cred / whatever so he chose to wait around and beat Zimmerman up instead (and or wait and surprise attack him).

Ok so let me get this straight here. We got the foaming at the mouth racist, proved by 7 year old myspace posts of course, stalking innocent unarmed Trayvon. Trayvon loses him, but instead of going home and calling the cops, he decides to sneak around a bit, just to make sure. Then they bump back into each other, out of pure chance, the racist attacks, but he is way to slow for super Tray, and misses. Then Tray uses his super speed, takes the racist madman down, starts pounding him while simultaniously screaming help at the top of his lungs. Then the vilian laughs his evil laugh, and shoots Tray.
Is that the story you got in your head?
At what point do you feel that a person can defend themselves from an attack? Does the person need to be on the very cusp of death? Do they need to wait to ensure that the other person is doing enough damage? When can someone use deadly force, ignoring all of the fact regarding this case?
If we are to look at the variable of poor judgement and cloudy decision-making in highly intense situations, then why is it that Zimmerman's judgement is perfectly reasonable while Trayvon's is totally unacceptable?
Regarding the showstopping question, I think it's a good question to ask. In my personal view, I would take a few steps back by first addressing the issue of deadly force ie. gun ownership itself.

if you are a racist and you left a paper trail it would be rather hard to deny that you did in fact racially profile someone.
all this time i was saying this was not a racially motivated incident. his own racist ramblings show that he is a racist. anybody that says otherwise is blinded by their love for zimmerman. how can anyone say they get a knife pulled on them by EVERY mexican they run into? he totally proves his idiotic racial profiling attitude. you guys are just pissed that your boy did not act purely in self defense. do not worry about your right to bare arms or your rights to self defense, they will not be taken away because of this idiot, unless you are a racist with ramblings on websites that can be traced back to you and you go out racially profiling people and looking for trouble you will be fine.
