in self defense I would be justified if I felt my life in danger, would a cop do the same?
Why do you think msnbc doctored the 911 tape?
because YOU commented on "thug mentality". I asked you what you meant, you replied "low hung jeans"

For the record, I support him. I dont think that is childish. It makes the point without burning people in a debate.

Common Law self defense: a person is justified in using deadly force if:
1. The actor is not the aggressor
2. The actor reasonably believes that such force is necessary to repel the imminent use of unlawful deadly force by another person.
So then you agree, very well beavis.

Agree with what? That Zimmerman was the aggressor and Martin had a reasonable fear.

really? who started the confrontation? remember, Martin was not required to back away when confronted by Zimmerman under Florida law. If he had a reasonable fear, he could strike first under Florida law.

Most of us find it offensive and impolite.
Most? Strange word. It implies that you took a poll of all of your group and at least 51% agreed and became most. 49% would not be most.

You would be wrong. The eyewitness testimony was that Zimmerman was pursuing Trayvon from left to right. Caught him and fro minutes the two stood upright throws punches. Testimony was that Zimmerman was told to stay in the car, he did not.

Also, two crucial points are that Trayvon was a child and Zimmerman and almost 30 year old man. A child can not consent to mutual combat. Second, Trayvon was not arriving in the neighborhood, he was already there at home watching the NBA All star game, ran out of snacks and went to 711 and was hurrying back to catch LeBron and Kobe go at it. Talking with and fighting Zimmerman was not his objective, saving his life was. He called Rachel because he feared for his life and once he made that call expressing his fear, Zimmerman legally had no stand your ground or fear for his life defense.

Indeed, and Martin was a child and so his standard was that of a child and he could not consent to mutual combat. The other thing is this, anyone who knows what "involuntary manslaughter" is would know that a failure to not even make that verdict could only be racist or ignorance based.

Clearly my words went over your head, so take your time and read them again slowly.

Hint: murder rate comparison between the US and Jamaica was not under consideration.

My point remains, if I were stalked in Jamaica by anyone like TM was I would believe that the stalker was an ill-wisher and I would seek to defend myself.

Finally, I know that if you/Eric were in TM position you would do nothing.

Reread what follows.

My concerns revolve around racial hatred, murder and the ability of some races to get away with murder of "blacks" in the 21st century in America, the land of equality and freedom.
If I were stalked in Jamaica by anyone like TM was I would believe that the stalker was an ill-wisher and I would seek to defend myself. What would you do, if you were in his position?
Why did the stalker persist to pursue TM although the police told him to desist with the pursuit? I speak from memory.

HUGH,
I wanna know how effective your church prayers and creationist beliefs have been in sharpening your intellect.
Attempt this Grade 7 question in arithmetic:
A monkey wishes to scale a 13 m tall erect pole. He begins climbing from the bottom and it's seen all throughout the climb that he climbs 3 m in 1 second and then slips 2 m in the next second. How long will it take the monkey to just reach the top of the pole?(show all the working steps).
You got stuck the last time I posed this elementary math question to you, mon.
(smiles in advance)
Prove your FALSE claim i.e. I got stuck the last time.
