I could not pull the trigger on a 17 year old kid. I guess if it was me, I'd be dead.<quoted text>
I don't even know how to respond to this. You're saying you would trust someone who's angry and trying to push your head through four inches of concrete to calm down and stop just before he actually killed you, and also hopefully before he turned you into vegetable? You're willing to widow your wife and orphan your own children in the hope he'd turn his life around?
Interesting input from another side of this debate: The Rev.

To start with there was no way Z could have known how old he was. Physically speaking there is no difference between a 17 and 18 year old, and very little difference to even a 21 year old.
I would hope if you were in that situation you would protect you and yours from an aggressor regardless of how old they are.

The link I have posted is comparing what happened to Trayvon with Rodney King.
People are wanting to make it unlawful to protect yourself against a violent attack. They say that black teenagers need to be protected. All they need is to be taught not to attack a man and punch/beat him down and they wont be shot like Trayvon. There was no racial profiling on Zimmermans part, but there was from Trayvon, I believe 'white cracker' was the phrase he used.
What would Trayvon's dad be doing right now if Zimmerman did not have a gun on him? He'd be trying to keep his kid from going to prison for profiling and beating Zimmerman to death.
