Let's postulate for one second that Trayvon Martin was a straight up thug, that he was burglarizing houses and that Zimmerman had every right
to follow him and investigate further. If said 17 year old, non-armed, young punk thug child with zero training in any martial art whatsoever, can
tackle a neighborhood, 2nd command watch captain and proceed to beat him and bash his poor little head into the concrete....I will with no problem say
that this guy, has no business whatsoever, prancing about suburbia pretending to be a crime stopper. If you are investigating a possible burglar, or
suspect individual, who is a 17 year old, and you not only cannot take him down, but you get your head bashed into the concrete attempting to
investigate a thug being suspicious, then you sir have no business prancing about suburbia looking for suspicious suspects.
I am by no means a tough guy or hard ass. However, I will by all means challenge ANY 17 year old to hand to hand combat RIGHT NOW in my urban high
crime rate/high murder rate city. Even with my inept, somewhat athletic abilities I can guarantee that ten times out of ten not one 17 year old,
(without regional level wrestling) will take me down and start beating me. There WILL be a long, hard fight first. And this is coming from someone who
would NEVER have the balls to confront random people (or not so random) on the street because I suspected them being up to no good. If the 17 year
old starts to get the better of me and if he is of the thug sort that the media and others say he is, then I dam well deserve to get whooped, even if
I find myself with cranium being bashed against concrete. Even in this worse case scenario I will chalk up my inept crime fighting abilities to me
being a lesser man and as I fade out of this world I would accept that. But what I would never do is reach down for my one hitter killer, draw and and
shoot a kid dead because I thought that after confronting him, I may be in serious danger.
This not only exhibits the height of cowardice, but it sends a horrible message across the board. Good guys need to shoot unarmed suspects who have
committed no real crime, they need to shoot them dead. I'll never stand for that. Crush them with real fighting skills or whip out a can of pepper
spray, pull out your 800k volt tazer sold commercially now on the web...., beat him with well trained baton skills.
But pull out a gun and shoot a kid dead?
Reeks of pure 100% cowardice to me. I mean seriously, if you're neighborhood watch, this strikes me as a whistle and flashlight kinda thing. Wanna
take down crime? Ok, a can of pepper spray and tazer. Keep these things handy, and unless a gun is drawn, or shots are fired, don't bring a gun into
a fist fight, ever. Hopefully what this turns out to be is a case of Darwinism with a sad twist. An inept, weak and downright wimpy neighborhood watch
wannabe gets max time in prison. Then he can have at it, he can single-handedly begin to correct all the criminals he was supposedly after in the
There will be no skinny 17 year olds, there will be no children whom he outguns. He'll have to face real men with is bare hands. This is something
that Zimmerman and his ilk fear most, above all else.
