:shk: Maybe that was your experience. But mind was very different. And the three other people I know who had so-called 'mild' concussions all still have symptoms from them ... YEARS LATER.
So someone is just supposed to lay there and get their head bashed in because they might not die or might not get a bad head injury???
Oh please ... :shk: OF COURSE Zimmerman could have gotten a bad head injury or even died. That IS the purpose of continually bashing someones head into the sidewalk. Ya' know?
And yet you just claimed that you thought Martin wouldn't have beaten Zimmerman to death. YOU HAVE NO IDEA.
He didn't 'suddenly' do anything. He got into MANY fights. So many that the girl on the phone didn't get concerned when she heard Martin getting into another fight on the other end of the phone call. That's not normal, upstanding, behavior. It's violent.
SO WHAT? That doesn't excuse him being violent. That doesn't excuse him doing drugs. That doesn't excuse him when he tried to bash Zimmermans head in. That is what he was doing .. bashing it repeatedly against the rock. The purpose of continually bashing someones head into the cement is to squash the head. It's not exactly a friendly thing to do, ya' know?
Zimmermans charges were dropped. He did nothing wrong. What part of that don't you understand? Martin was a self professed gansta and he fully admitted doing drugs and he was proud of getting into fights. MAJOR DIFFERENCE.
We don't know who started the fight. Whoever did is the perp. SInce we don't know who started the fight, then it has to be 'not guilty'. It's just that simple.
Prosecutors began their closing arguments after the judge presiding over the trial ruled that jurors can consider the lesser charge of manslaughter, but she denied a request for the jury also to consider third-degree murder after a defense attorney called the proposal "outrageous."
Prosecutor Richard Mantei argued that instructions for third-degree murder should be included on the premise that Zimmerman committed child abuse when he fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin because Martin was underage.

Why are we letting White America dictate to us what is and what is not acceptable behavior of our young black youth?

You said that at the very least concussion is life altering. This is medically untrue.
You have no way of knowing Martin's intent, so stop pretending that you do.

Violent crime in US happens primarily in heavily populated urban areas. Most of those areas are gun free zones. That tells me the less guns in the hands of law abiding citizens the more violent crime against them. Let's arm the citizens of Chicago and find out....
By the way, violent crime in US has been steadily decreasing for years in US.
