In my opinion, what we are dealing with today, is REVERSE racism.
The guy shouldn't have gotten involved, I don't see how self defense applies when you involve yourself in a situation that you don't need to

I think of it this way .. 95% of the time the person getting shot was doing something illegal/wrong, so, whether or not the person "deserved" to die to imo, a question not worth the time to ask. Dirt bags get killed under these laws, and I have a hard time feeling bad about it. In this case the punks breaking into cars.. deserved it. In the Martin case he punched a random person on the street ... deserved it. If it were "normal" people killing "normal" people then there might be a problem .. as it is .. it gets rid of the waste in society.

Those kids were committing a crime. Trayvon was walking home.
The two surviving teens admitted to theft. Trayvon paid for his Skittles.
There were three teens. Trayvon was alone.
Roderick Scott was immediately arrested and charged. Zimmerman was not.
