And owning a screwdriver does not make you a burglar, since that is the basis of the burglary claim.<quoted text>
Your "so called" logic is flawed, a gun makes no one a "hero", owning a hammer makes no one a carpenter...
I know many cowards who own guns.<quoted text>...it's what you do with it that makes the difference. Most "cowards" are afraid of guns, and that includes owning a gun! A gun is a tremendous responsibility, cowards run from that.
What evidence of burglary by Martin has ever been found? Aside from his screwdriver being referred to as a burglary tool (my high school referred to fingernail files as weapons, without any regard to why we packed them), I've only heard mention of him admitting to having jewelry that didn't belong to him, but no one ever charged him with stealing it. No one ever even reported jewelry stolen. And lastly, if taking a marker and defacing school property and smoking marijuana places a kid in a lifepath where they deserve to be murdered, then I am one lucky beech.<quoted text>Trayvon was not some innocent 12 year old as those LSM pictures portrayed him to be...they generated sympathy by doing that. 90% of the press accounts did not mention Travon's "school record" and his burglary jewelry and or drug use and Facebook obsession with fighting and drug use have been ignored. Would you raise a son to be like Trayvon? Knowing the truth about "the real Trayvon" would you expect any other ending for his story?
There; but for the grace of God", go I.
It could have been my story also, I changed my life when I joined the U.S.M.C. I was 17 when I signed early enlistment papers, I turned 18 on the bus to the Cincinnati recruitment center!
