If George wouldn't even leave his home to get milk unarmed then why get out on a dark night unarmed with a possible violent criminal lurking. Police are armed even when just taking a statement. With the criminal activity (by young black men) in his community no one living there should leave their front door without a gun.
Actually, every single person who lives and has been interviewed disagrees with you ... they feel very uneasy about 'the guy' sneaking around with a gun strapped to his side. I think there is only one guy in the complex that is supporting Zimmerman, he is making the rounds on talk shows - his 15 minutes of fame.

They prefer UNEDUCATED applicants. Training is a whole different thing
Then Trayvon should have applied. Every department I have had dealings with preferred trained. It cuts cost to train new ones and time to get them on the street. Most cops even when fired have no trouble finding new jobs as other departments like officers with experience. The ones near here have less than %10 rookie enforcement.%90 came from other agencies, either fired or quit due to performance or change of leadership. A new sheriff often cleans house. A new mayor the same. All that happens is a rotation of personal, very few hire untrained high school kids except if they must due to lack of applicants. One officer I know personally was fired for improper conduct was hired as police chief 2 towns away and still works there today. Point being most departments prefer trained, even if they come with some bad baggage. There is no such thing as a squeaky clean cop.

That would be a lie. Only those who meet the agenda make the news, the others were swept under the rug. Don't worry, If the defense has to go that far you will get to see a few of them. And AGAIN I get to watch you eat crow. I did say AGAIN didn't I? Of course we can prove one lie now. Most didn't even know George or could tell what he looks like. Second, conceal carry, most who did know him didn't even know he carried. I guess you missed the INSIDE waistband carry? So much for the lie "strapped on his side".

That was a freak thing. Fist fights happen all the time
Yes and more people die from them than rifles like the dreaded AR15. So much for "freak thing". In just 2011, 728 people were killed by hands or feet. The point is if both consent to a fist fight then fine sell tickets. However as a unconsenting victim of an attack then no, you gave up your right to safety when you attacked your victim. A victim of violence has no moral obligation to allow you to violate them or wait till a certain amount of blood is lost, they also have no obligation to "feel bad" because you forced them to defend themselves. Would you argue a woman can not use deadly force to prevent her rape if the attacker does not do "great bodily harm or try to kill her"? Do you argue since no great bodily harm or death exists she must just lay there till her attacker leaves her alone? Do you argue that if 5 gang members break into your home tonight and robs you, rapes your 9 year old daughter, burns your home, as long as they are unarmed you must let them, hoping police come help?

In Florida there are over 1,000,000 conceal carry citizens. Florida's population is around 19,000,000. So just walking down any normal street 1 out of 19 is probably carrying concealed. This does not include police, security personal, those who just don't have a permit, or criminals. In reality the odds are closer to 1 in 15 once you include these. Those you claim are nervous about people with guns better get out of Florida because a simple trip to a store to get milk will expose you to dozens carrying a gun. According to the anti-self defense crowd blood should be flowing in every street with that many guns yet it's not. If I were a criminal in Florida I would get out, maybe go to New York were my activity is protected and the unarmed victims plentiful.

Rodney King, the poster boy for "The poor misunderstood black man". Sharpton and Jackson jumped on that soapbox too. They couldn't pick a winner in a one horse race. Ha ha ha. Rodney, OJ, Trayvon--anyone besides me see a pattern?

Rodney King's so called arrest was video taped moron and those who watched the actual trial heard the lady CHP who initiated the chase lie about how fast the 1986 Hyundai Excel was traveling.

The Zimmerman-Martin case would have become high profile with or without Sharpton and the three NBP's who traveled from elsewhere.

And don't forget Jesse Jackson who originally claimed that Martin was shot in the back of the head execution style.

It was JJ, Jr. who was stealing campaign funds. I was referring to Sr.

Jr. tried to come up with some BS health excuse in order to get out of it.

I hadn't read that but I do know that he was clueless as to the details when he came to Central Florida with Sharpton to attend a rally during late March 2012, the 26th iirc, one month after the shooting.

Sure they do but they also need to be responsible for their criminal actions like whites do. Why should we feel sorry because a life long thug gets what they deserve? Rodney King was nothing more than a useless piece of crap breathing up someones good air. Do you see me crying over a white piece of crap with a long history of being a thug? I could not care less. Casey Anthony walked and I believe they should have burned her at the stake. You on the other hand want blacks to have a free pass when they have no regard for others. You knew OJ was headed for jail sooner or later, you could not protect him from himself forever. Trayvon had a bullet with his name on it no matter how hard you scream he was a little angle. Each of these were the subject of blacks trying to keep the race card alive and each was a total failure. All you have done so far is provide the Klan with justification for what they preach.
