Will there be more reporting and comments on the basic theme that violence begets violence and that if you attack someone they can defend themselves no matter what your reasons might be. Or will it be that a racist prejudiced system has legalized the hunting and killing of young blacks?
sort by best latest
I don't see any connection Z didn't stand his ground he responded to an ongoing attack. He had nowhere to go
I don't know why you mention a case where the law correctly convicted a murderer. Again nothing to do with the intent of "stand your ground".
Your joking right? Zimmermans call to Sanford PD was made while he was in the car stating "This guy looks like he's up to no good, or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about" and "looking at all the houses
Yes of course that's the case. The same is true with the OJ case and the thousands of others who have been acquitted by juries who either never saw all the evidence or were to confused about the law as it stands, or who had a high priced defense att
If the law is the problem, then the law has to be changed by the state legislature. But the trial happened according to law and justice was served. Some may not like the outcome but the jury has spoken. End of story,
Suzette After watching the trial and listening to all the testimony and evidence I came to the same conclusion. I also would have voted innocent as opposed to any of the charges they could consider.
I'm not at all sure that any peace will come out.
Oh I thought legislators were politicians who changed the law in 2005 in reference to standing ground/self defense
. Zimmerman was told on the phone in the car NOT to pursue Trevon by an officer which he did anyway and a crime in some states.
Sadly it's doubtful that we will see any gains in peace or even people having a better understanding of the nature of violence.
All we will see in more media circus and a lot of politicians trying to make hay.
Absolutely They will avoid the real subject and revel in everything that doesn't matter.
This case never should have gone to trial as the original investigation showed.
Yes I have. And I've been confronted by armed criminals, more than once.
In every case I was armed and I never had to fire but I was ready and willing.
I'm so glad you believe the system worked. I can't understand how to the contrary you think the politicians who make and enforce our laws "spread deceit and division" You must have studied Fl self defense law and the change in 2005 standing ground
While a completely agree that the system is broken at least in this case it seemed to work, despite all of the outside interference.
Sad for everyone involved but the law was upheld in a just manner.
