I usually stay away from threads like this.
But I couldn't resist. Is this what self-defense is?? I really can't believe that some of you are incapable of addressing the fact that this may
possibly be totally wrong. Every single thing that you can think of is based off of cause and effect. Okay his nose is bloody. People find out that
fact and they run a mile with it. "I told you he attacked him", "he was violent, and he died, that was his own doing" Are you bloody serious????
What caused Martin to strike him??? I have NOT read any post addressing this question. Last time I checked people, especially 17 year old high school
students, do not walk around and bash peoples heads into concrete. We are turning into emotionless non-thinking machines.
Is this what we have turned into? The post ends up with people posting statistics suggesting that black males or people as violent. Cause and
Effect. What would make someone commit a crime??? What would make someone rob someone??? Environment!!!! We all know right from wrong correct. I come
from an inner-inner-city and if you look around and witness the show......I just imagine the effects that may have on a persons psyche, self worth,
pride and your sense of being. Out dated text books in the ran down schools never suggest that so called "blacks" had nothing to do with
civilization.... and this is far from true. I am telling you from experience. I had to learn these things at home, and everyone in my neighborhood
didn't have a home. Sure they had houses but no home. Where do all of these guns come from??? Here is a bit of local tradition and history for you
I just happen to know a few people and this is what I was told from several different sources that aren't related or connected. Back in the late
80's an open train cart was left between Compton and Watts and it was full of nothing but guns and ammunition. Just an open car, with no engine
attached to it. Im sorry but I believe this from hearing it from so many people. Now just for the argument, lets say it didn't happen. How does an
over abundance of guns get into impoverished communities where people can barely take care of themselves??? I have never met anyone that will address
the issue on this level. So lets not talk about it unless we REALLY want to talk about it. You would think so called "blacks" owned a factory to
produce weapons, but we all know this is not the case. A racist Sheriff once asked my cousin was she carrying any grenades or RPG's and she just
broke down in tears at the utter disrespect and complete ignorance that has systematically held itself up and even ascended into powerful
organizations that were designed to help people. Can you imagine spending 9hrs at work and you come home to this.
I just wanted to share that, it sheds some light on the mindset of people who don't know how to approach or understand other ethnic groups outside of
the context that is provided by mainstream media. Lets start thinking beyond our common knowledge and lets not let the news dictate how we should
handle situations. Come on....Anyone can tell that something is wrong here. They were both wrong but zimmerman just like many police officers,
sheriffs, and just Adults period are capable of creating solutions that can result in the law acting as the law. Meaning if he was wrong, report it
and let the agencies or whoever do their jobs. The stalking can be considered illegal because it is synonymous with harassment. The "I just know hes
doing something wrong" thinking is nothing new especially if you were raised a certain way.
Are we really excusing the bloodshed of anyone for any reason. This is not self-defense. I can only imagine what was going through zimmermans head
that caused him to follow this young man and act the way he did. The news is a nasty tool and it can destroy ones capability of producing independent
intelligent solutions . We know something is wrong if anyone here has watched food inc. The courts decided that it is not illegal for the news to
sry for typos, and I hope I didn't rant too much or offend anyone. I just wish to shed light and add my two cents, into areas that maybe unseen or
unknown to others.
Peace and Blessings to all.
