You weren't there during the attack and neither was anyone else.<quoted text> There was no evidence that George Zimmerman was ever in any danger from the encounter with a side walk . I don't think that anyone has ever died by sidewalk encounter. You fooled no one here by not showing any reasonable empathy towards how a young, passionate, freedom-loving person, like Trayvon Martin , must have felt walking home alone in the rainy dark night from his girl friend's home and spying a strange , older Hispanic man apparently stalking him from his car. Trayvon Martin's last words on this finite planet was " Get off me"! That sure doesn't sound like the words of someone who has just jumped out of the bushes onto a grown, fat man and started furiously pummeling him . James Agee,one of our finest poets and a man who keenly understood the sad legacy of racism in the American South, said "And a human being whose life is nurtured in an advantage which has accrued from the disadvantage of other human beings, and who prefers that this should remain as it is, is a human being by definition only, having much more in common with the bedbug, the tapeworm, the cancer, and the scavengers of the deep sea." - James Agee
According to Zimmerman, Trayvon said to him after overtaking him, breaking his nose and slamming his head on the sidewalk, "You're going to die tonight."
What if Trayvon did say that? And what if Zimmerman wasn't armed and had to endure his head being slammed on the sidewalk until he was unconscious or dead?
At what point during an attack does one have the right to defend themselves by any means possible?
