California is becoming two states; those who can afford to pay the taxes and the moochers. The middle class is leaving town.

The only attraction is the beauty and the weather.

You are AGAIN letting your emotion cloud the legal facts. Zimmerman had every legal right to do what he did without being attacked,and he WILL be acquitted. Besides, you never answered my question: given as Martin was smashing Zimmerman's head open, would you press murder charges against the kid if he had died?
Regardless of the Boy Messiah's evil intentions, we still have an enforceable Constitution.

He could have kept track of him visually in his car until the police arrived. They arrived just minutes after the shooting.
It's not like he didn't have a good description of the young man and had already called the police who were on their way.
What if that young man was just in the wrong neighborhood at the wrong time walking back from the store and felt he was being threatened and reacted out of fear and panic?
If you see someone who you thinks "looks suspicious" in your neighborhood, do you automatically grab a loaded gun and go after them?
I hope not.
No. But if the young punk comes after you, then you react by any means necessary.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Where you see the gates of hell to be a Rose Garden Trellis, good folks see it to be the front gate to the present day White House.

You also see a closed toilet seat to be part of a well-designed breakfast nook. But good folks see it as the service counter at the Obama Carry-Out.

Well, guns really aren't my field of expertise.

A other poster brought up the assault weapon used on the recent shootings in Oregon when we were talking about Zimmerman carrying a loaded gun.

So are assault weapons illegal or not? And how easy are they to get? Somebody's getting them.

Maybe you can just tell me.

The boy was 17. That guy, Zimmerman, wasn't big enough or strong enough to restrain him or fight back without shooting him?

If he hadn't carried a gun with him, I'll bet he would have found the strength from somewhere. It was just easier to pull out his gun and shoot him.

Zimmerman sounds like a wimp to me from the get go.
