I don't know of anyone who is gleeful that Trayvon is dead. This is a horrible tragedy. Those who are glad for Zimmerman don't believe he is guilty of 1st degree murder or 2nd degree murder, or manslaughter and they don't believe it was racially motivated. He is guilty of making some bad decisions in following Trayvon. That's not a crime.<quoted text>
As for treyvon, I don't give a rip whether he was a druggie or not. I only know he is dead, and some people are celebrating the fact that his killer got away with it. Nothing further said or done is going to change those basic facts. I still reserve the right to be disgusted with their glee.
Trayvon reminds me of lots of kids who are not bad kids but they like living on the edge and participating in unlawful acts. His doing the things he did did not deserve death. He made a bad and life altering decision to physically confront a man who happened to be carrying a weapon.
Now, you do have the right to ask why George Zimmerman, with his background, was able to pass a background check and get a conceal carry permit. I also would like to know the answer to that. If he assaulted a police officer he should not have cleared a check.
So, why were the charges dropped? Is it because his dad is a judge? Those are valid questions.
