No a young man walking on a street does not warrant a call to the police - for most of us - and it is too bad Wannabe-Cop-Zimmerman did NOT listen to the advice and did not follow the young man.
QED - he would be alive today.
Trayvon unfortunately resembled the description of recent burglary suspects. You are telling me you wouldn't want a neighbor to keep close watch for potential criminals in your community.

Did you hear the story about the woman who was the victim of a home invasion while she was at home with her infant. That raised serious awareness in Georges mind along with many other law abiding families and residents

Yes, in this Land of the Free and the Home of the Gun, these parents visited the cemetery instead.
Crazy country, isn't it?
Btw, dearie, you surmise too much without facts - but the cemetery part is the FACTS.
If you dont like America then move to Bangladesh or even better,, Canada. Get lost or get a clue. The criminals are the enemy not me,, a honest law abiding hard working American. Yes responsibility is protecting MY family and keeping the peace

Yes he is, but not because of Skittles. It's because he took upon himself to attack a human being.
Of course, we all know that it was the pedophile that got out of the truck and stalked this boy.

You told us that the pedophile followed this boy for less than ten seconds.

Funny how you keep forgetting.

You will note that there has not been one word from all of those that are defending poor little Trayvon, about all those killed in Chicago over the 4th weekend. OH no! they only cry when a hispanic or white person in involved. The worthless teenage thug got just he deserved and the State of Florida has in the long run been saved a lot of money. Zimm walks and one less thug is gone. Win/Win for America. I agree, people in those cities should make sure that their guns are in good working order with lots of ammo on hand.
Another plus living here, you never see or hear about bullshit like that phoney stupid trial in Fla. No civil rights to save their worthless ass.

Yes, it is almost as there is no connection between this case and the people killed over the weekend in Chicago, or the forty thousand people who have died since the pedophile killed this boy in front of his home 16 months ago.

They don't send tea totallers to alcohol abuses education programs. Tea totallers typically don't assault law enforcement officers in a drunken rage while resisting arrest.

boy? Over six feet tall almost 18.. boy? He would have been shot in my neighbor hood too. No doubt about it. His parents wanted him to dress and look like a thug and this is what they got. Oh plus the million dollars from the settlement. If your bending over and your underwear is being seen through because of your sweaty azzz don't come by my house . No question ! Don't care ! Safety is Off the gun ! Get your hole diggers ready.

Actually, no, the term I called you out on was "Skull Bruise", not bone bruise. Speaking of inbreeding, that is one thing that you black fellows do not worry about because the brood mare that had you most likely does not remember who she slept with that night, and Marriage? Marriage is out of the question on over 70% of all black births in this country. A lot of black bastards born every day.
What are you saying numbnutz.... the skull is not bone??? ROTFALMFAO!! Yep.... better take care of that last functioning brain cell of yours.....

Interesting... black fellows don't need to worry about inbreeding. Well... good for them. But, I guess YOU still do.

Incidentally dumbazz..... I'm white. I've made that point a number of times.

The press has all but exonerated Zimmerman and saying the Prosecution did not prove the case. Did they ever enter into evidence the 911 call where the operator told Zimmerman not to follow Martin? I think Zimmerman lost his case when he decided to leave his vehicle and follow/stalk Martin. No one needed to be killed that night. No one needed a broken nose and scratches on the back of his head that night. Stand your ground is when you can't escape. Not to use after you follow a "suspicious" individual after you had made a 911 call and told not to follow him. Another reason to cut the cameras and give the legal system a chance. Hope the jury is smart enough to see Zimmerman as the aggressor that caused the tragedy.
I don't consider the RedNeck Rag or the Aryan Systerhood Daily a member of the mainstream "press".

Nope, not six feet tall.

And the pedophile outweighed him by more than forty pounds.

On top of having a gun tuck in his panties.

Canada boy i guess you would have laid down like a bitch and took an ass whipen possibly losing your life. Let me ask you canada boy,,,, at what point would you have reached for your gun to put a stop to the out of control thug beating your slimy ass..
"are signs of a theif"!!! ROTFALMFAO!!! Funny how you can make a gigantic leap like that.... but can't make the connection between GI Janie's violet past, his history of losing control, his history of profiling, his history of black racism, his history of lying... and him shooting a kid.

"Let me ask you canada boy,,,, at what point would you have reached for your gun to put a stop to the out of control thug beating your slimy ass.. "

Well jackazz... since I already knew that the police were enroute (arriving 40 seconds after the shooting), I would have complied with the police order to stand down AND LET THEM DO THE JOB THEY ARE BEING PAID FOR. Let's see.... how would that have turned out?? Hmm.... innocent kid would still be alive...

<quoted text>Ok canada boy.. then tell me. where did the jewelry come from. Also where is the handgun that trayon took a picture of and then his rookie ass went and posted the photo on twitter or Facebook. Also where is that marijuana plant. Is it dead like trayvon or is his father the new doctor green-thumb. I cant believe how you defend criminal behavior..
1) Where did the jewellery come from?? Who cares.... IT WASN'T STOLEN SO IT DOESN'T CONCERN ME.
2) Where did the gun come from?? Who cares.... AS LONG AS IT WAS LEGAL NOT NOT USED IN THE COMMISSION OF A CRIME IT DOESN'T CONCERN ME.
3) Are you sure that was a pot plant.... and not a tomato plant?? Since when are YOU such a fcuking expert??

Interesting.....Trayvon has no run in with the law NO ARRESTS, NO CRIMINAL RECORD, NOTHING NADA ZILCH. GI Janie on the other hand has multiple arrests for violent incidents, has had a restraining order issued against him, has been fired from a job for violent beating a female bar patron, has a history of a short violent temper, has lied to investigating officers, has lied to a judge... and yet... you defend him no questions asked.
