I don't know about 'normal' people but of people living in a town that rates a 3 out 100, 100 being safest, most sane people certainly would, legal or not, and they will also 'profile' black males wearing hoodies as well, regardless of whether some PC airheads out in the Burbs like it or not; such a crime rate guarantees profiling and an aggressive neighborhood watch is a necessity. All that's 'wrong' here is Zimmerman's color.Normal people don't carry weapons around wile they follow random strangers.

At what point did history become ethics? Why should we subvert the elusive search for facts to moralist concerns? If you want to be a preacher, go preach. If you want to save the world, go into politics. If you want to invent a world free of evil, take Prozac. -Dave Williams, George Mason Univ.
Besides, he was treated on the scene and then it was reported that he sought treatment the next day.
I guess I do not understand why you think this matters?
The standard to use deadly force is a reasonable belief of imminent death or great bodily harm.
I would think that a person could reasonably come to the belief that great bodily harm was imminent when their head was being slammed into concrete. Or if you prefer, being bounced off the sidewalk.
You react, you STOP, the threat before it gets severe
Thats the whole point...to survive, to live because you feared for your life. Nothing else matters at that time. Period
All tactics aside.
Both sides have said and done some stupid things.
FOr me it simply.
I dont know what happened but IF its true ZImmerman went home with his gun that night and no drug testing that complete BS.
Now he may be completely innocent but I do feel 100% they dropped the ball on doing a thorough investigation.
Media mutts like Sharpton are part of the problem even if Zimmerman is guilty
Media overall is guilty in many ways of trying to sway OPINIONS one way or another.
Ive seen many disgusting things from both sides like the stupidity of saying its his fault he had on a hoodie or that zimmerman deserved beaten for simply making the phone call. Complete nonsense.
Im GLAD zimmerman is in custody because he SHOULD be and IM glad that this will be investigated because it SHOULD be.
Other than that we'll see.
since this thread started out about pictures has anybody posted this? it was in another thread.
