Except for being wrong about Zimmerman not being a NW member, and Zimmerman being severely beaten, this is a good post filled with logic.This is ridiculous, Trayvon is dead. Dead! He can not speak for himself. Even if Trayvon beat the hell out of Zimmerman, You must take into account that Zimmerman was following him. That is threatening, it's night, and the person doesn't verbally address you. How would you feel? So Trayvon asks him, "Why are you following me?"
What happens in the middle is a mystery. Of course Zimmerman will say Trayvon attacked him first. He killed an innocent, unarmed minor.
All this talk about who was on top, who beat who worse, how Zimmerman was scared to death.
yes, Zimmerman was probably scared, and being attacked, BUT who is to say Trayvon was not equally as scared. Zimmerman had a gun. Guns are offensive weapons.
The way I see it:
Zimmerman an armed, non member of the neighborhood watch, perused a Suspicious character in his
subjective point of view
The Character, Trayvon was an unarmed, innocent minor
They fought, Zimmerman was injured, Trayvon was Killed.
Regardless of Self-Defense, A boy was shot and killed that night. An innocent boy, harming no one. Zimmerman should pay for that at least.
This whole ordeal could have been prevented, Had Zimmerman have just walked away.
Zimmerman was beat bad! He was scared for his life! it was self defense! Trayvon has a history!
Trayvon was killed! A life is taken, even in self defense, Trayvon was NOT the aggressor, he didn't follow Zimmerman, He didn't have a gun. Zimmerman did! And he followed a boy who understandingly felt threatened, and the wounds of Zimmerman show it. It doesn't matter if Zimmerman thought he was going to die, or how much blood was shed. The point is:
You should not have followed him.
You have listened to the police.
And then you would not have been put in that situation TO defend your self resulting in the Killing of Trayvon Martin. Period.
If Zimmerman is proven non guilty, It only proves how backwards our legal system is.
Your last sentence bears repeating.
"If Zimmerman is proven non guilty, It only proves how backwards our legal system is."
