Exodus 22:2–3<quoted text>
No need to bring GOD into it in such a foul way. Better get A Lunatic to quote you some verses and save your soul.
Is that a tribute to Trayvon you traded in your gay wrestler for? You should pay attention to your profile more so we won't. hahaha
Uh-oh. Eric Liu, author of "The Accidental Asian: Notes of a Native Speaker" and a former Bill Clinton speechwriter, has found a "hopeful note amid all the anguish and recrimination from the acquittal of George Zimmerman." It is, he explains in a Time.com essay, "that growing numbers of white people have come to appreciate whiteness for what it is: an unearned set of privileges":
This isn't about empathy or the posture of equivalency that empathy can tempt us to assume. It's about owning up to the unequal privilege of being nonblack and saying, in essence, "I am George Zimmerman." And because I am George Zimmerman, I get to have my fears trump reality. I get get-out-of-jail-free cards. I get a presumption of innocent victimhood, no matter what my own acts or attitudes.
Zimmerman is not without sin. The facts of the case seem consistent with the view that he was an overzealous wannabe cop, and it seems to us that he exercised poor judgment in following Martin after the 911 dispatcher urged him not to. There is no denying that the results were tragic. And even if the shooting was justified by self-defense--the jury verdict affirms only that the prosecution failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that it was not--Martin did not deserve to die. While private citizens have a right to the defensive use of force, its punitive use is rightly left to the state.
This statement is probably why so many people are outraged and the interpretation of events resulting from the trial imply this very statement from your posted article....

Bottom line, if he had just done what he was told after doing the right thing calling 911 we wouldn't be having this conversation across the country.
BTW, I don't care if you are gay. I spent a great deal dealing with people's rights in my career. I don't discriminate past the repuke/teabaggers. I still have some party foes that I care about a great deal. We don't discuss anything political, just agree to disagree.

2 2 If a thief is found breaking in and is struck so that he dies, there shall be
---no--- bloodguilt--- for him,
3 but if the sun has risen on him, there shall be bloodguilt for him. He shall surely pay. If he has nothing, then he shall be sold for his theft.
The fact or state of being guilty of murder or bloodshed.
The proper way to DO self-defense was done
with understanding, and self preservation.
in that jury deliberation room.
Just like it did with George Zimmerman that night.
Honestly, in my opinion, he waited a lil TOO long!
He was NOT only in fear ...
HE WAS PHYSICALLY being BEAT!
