People could throw all kinds of stuff, and I am still going to say the following...
Person A pursued person B
Person B either tried to defend themselves or escape - either would be justified.
Person A then shot person B.
Person A is the guilty party. He acted aggressively in pursuing a young man without reason. The young man only has two choices, either run away or
confront the person following him.
Given that the youth was not armed, and the man following him was, I seriously don't understand how any sane person can justify this shooting. He
chased the kid down FFS.
Imagine you go to visit a friend in such a neighborhood, and some random guy starts following you. What would your reaction be exactly?
Let me guess, all those who defend Zimmerman are gonna now make up some fantastical utopian dream of how everything would go.
All those who believe that Zimmerman acted unlawfully will agree that they would either run or confront the man following them. And what would the
result of that be?
I actually don't believe this was a racially motivated crime. I think an over-zealous wannabe cop took things too far and got jumpy in the face of a
(probably) mouthy kid arguing with the strange guy following him.
The REAL racism has been exposed in all of those immediately siding with Zimmerman, even in the face of evidence and common sense. That is what is
really disturbing about this entire case. It shows just how inherently racist many Americans are when they immediately jump to the defense of
Zimmerman even when it is clear that he was the aggressor.
