I agree 100 percent.
He stood his ground and the jerk tried to kill him.
The way it happened , or a year or two later...
who knows, but he would have ended up the same way.
Dead.
Shot or stabbed or beaten to death.
You can't have that kind of attitude and live very long in
this society.(if you can call it a society anymore)

In Chicago there has been ALMOST 30 kids UNDER 17 killed in 2013...NOT A PEEP from the media...NO commentary on those doing the killing...WHY...Their cries of racism in the Zimmerman case furthers their agenda (unrest, violence, division) to create a 'crises' so that the civil rights 'leaders' can convene at the WH for a private strategy session.

Correct you are, Perspective.
NC common sense.
As mother used to say. "it goes in one ear and out the other."
They'll never 'get it.'
This country is about done.
So sad.

Check this out:
Abraham Lincoln Quote
As with most politicians, he talked out of both sides of
his mouth.

I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.

GEORGE 'JORGE' ZIMMERMAN was, to use a media created identifier,'a person of color', something that they dared not to mention from DAY 1!

The media made no sense all these months. Yes, they never mentioned Zimmerman is a person of color. Apparently, that would have ruined the race angle they so love to push becuase it grabs attention, sells newspapers, etc.
The photo they showed us continuously was Trayvon at, perhaps, 12 or 13, looking very cute and childlike in that hoody.That would, indeed, raise our sentiments and get us angry.
They got what they wanted but they didn't help the case at all. I know. That's not what they cared about.

As he should have been...two guys got into a fight, one didn't live to see the end of the fight. Moral of the story is, don't get into fights with people and you won't have these problems.

CLERK STOOD HIS GROUND

Monroe, NC

BRAVO!!!!

A 21-year-old man killed by a north Charlotte convenience store employee Thursday night is the second alleged robber shot to death at the store in the last six years.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say Javon Sanchez Booker, of Charlotte, died after being shot about 9 p.m. at the Fast Mart store on Tom Hunter Road near Reagan Drive. That is a short distance from Interstate 85.

According to police, Booker entered the store and trried to rob the clerk. Police have not said if the suspect struck the clerk. Investigators say the clerk pulled a gun and fired at the man.

The alleged robber ran from the store but got only about a block south on Tom Hunter Road before collapsing in the street.

Zimmerman was an experienced community watch volunteer, and had been for eight years, when he got into a fight and had to shoot to live.

Now we've got 3 different stories. The similarity in all 3 is that you shouldn't attack a man with a gun.

We don't know that. Why couldn't Zimmerman be attacked and killed in his car? From the phone transcripts, Martin is quite aware of Zimmerman, and Zimmerman lost sight of him.
Both of the participants in the altercation could go where they pleased (within the limits of the law - no tresspassing, no breaking&entering, etc.).
As a community volunteer, he watched a suspicious suspect and followed from a distance; he called the police.

But the big question remains:
Who closed the distance and confronted whom? Because we have no answer to this question (other than Zimmerman's account) we didn't get a conviction.

So, what do you believe happened when they got within arm's reach of each other?
