Tell me AL...your name is AMERICAN lady...I assume you know something about freedom and liberty? And talking all those family values YOU HAD BETTER damn well have some children of your own.<quoted text>
It's hard to imagine the horrors teenage soldiers experienced. They charged through hailstorms of bullets while the bodies of their friends fell all around them. They listened as wounded men pleaded for their mothers, for a drink of water, or for death to come. They assisted surgeons, standing by as they sawed off mangled arms and legs -- often without an anesthetic. They endured the horrors of Andersonville, a Confederate prison in which thousands of Union men died of starvation and disease. They were killed in battle or suffered physical and mental wounds that they would carry for the rest of their lives.
There young boys are soon to be "men" by standards.
18 year olds are considered ADULTS!
Some 'teenagers' kill and commit mayhem MORE than adults!
They are just 'mean spirited'...
Trayvon IS/was a THUG!...
That picked on the WRONG guy!
IN WHAT FUKING UNIVERSE...may our kids not walk home without expecting to be jumped by some weird fat puke that thinks he is a cop?
Here is a lil challange for you AL.
Where exactly did Martin go wrong here?
What would you have your own child do differently?
YOUR kid is on his way back home from getting snacks, through your gated community. A vehicle suddenly pulls over across the street from him. The man is staring him down.
Your son picks up his pace.
The man bolts out of his car and starts chasing him.
I mean...the completely random stranger just wants to stop him and interrogate him. "Papers please."
But your kid doesn't understand who this weirdo is.
And who is he to come at your kid?
He has tried ignoring the guy.
He has tried running from the guy.
The guy isn't going away and your son becomes more than a little panicked. It is dark...raining...and some full grown man is bearing down on him. He is only a few blocks from home.
A. Wait for this total stranger to get right his face to state his business.
B. Defend himself.
It is my proposal that YOUR son...MY son...and ANYONE else's son would have ended up just as dead.
Do you disagree? AMERICAN lady?
Exactly who (in your eyes) has the authority to chase down our kids in the street? And was Zimmerman one of these people?
Please enlighten me.
