    Vigilantiism is not a civil liberty.
    How is it vigilantism when Zimmerman is inviting them to fight him?

    Zimmerman is not a martyr. The guy could serve charity and the public how most people do. Instead he prefers to remain in the spotlight for whatever reason.

    I have constantly said I don't hate him, and there is a difference for having compassion for a deeply troubled person verses supporting and encouraging him in everything he does. To some people he is an archetype, but to me he is a human in need of serious support and help, not encouragement and idolization.

    Read what he wrote:

    "And now The Game, who has an image of Martin tattooed on his leg, tells TMZ he would definitely jump into the ring with Zimmerman: "I will beat the f--- out of him ... I would not be boxing for me. I'd be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family."

    "I would box him to knock him out," The Game continues. "I would definitely take pleasure in it. It's legal, and I want to show him you can solve your disputes without a weapon."

    DMX also talked to TMZ, saying that he hopes to step into the ring with Zimmerman to fight for "every black person who has been done wrong in the (legal) system."
    "
    You see, in their minds, the legal system failed trayvon. Now what happened to him may have been wrong, in the sense that it shouldn't have happened, but it did. The question is: does that make Zimmerman guilty? No, apparently, it doesn't. He is innocent of all fault in that incident, but yet, because he isn't a black guy and trayvon was, he still needs to get punished because in their minds, when they'll beat zimmerman, they'll be fighting for every black person who was wronged by the legal system. So they're racists, black supremacists and vigilantees.
    And with all people of such nature, they're stupid. One: zimmerman doesn't have judicial power. He didn't found himself innocent, others found him not guilty. He had no greater input or power over the verdict than it is legally possible. Two: Zimmerman is actually a martyr here. He's going to willingly put himself in harms way from a bunch of people who he knows will be out for blood... and he does it for charity. He's a martyr. If anything, people who hate him should eat their words, but of course they won't, and start giving the man some respect.

    Hyperbole much... This is not vigilantism. This is going to be a boxing match, which is within the law and both are agreeing to it.

    Wonder if he'll be able to "stand is ground" without the comfort of packing a weapon, or if he'll cry like a little girl the first time he gets punched in the nose, like he did the last time.

    One must realize that celeb boxing is not real boxing. He is not stepping into the ring with a professional boxer or even some amateur who has fought in a number of matches.

    Most likely it will be another celeb clown and will consist of wild swings and clutching.

    So he won't need a backup piece?

    We don't even know of he will go through with it. I think he isn't allowed to sell his most recent painting because of copyright infringement, and next thing we hear is this. Maybe he announced it to test people's reactions. Seems to me that he looks for approval and validation through his little fan club that sees him as a hero, martyr, victim, etc.. He and his brother communicate with them on social media. I think Zimmerman lives a in bubble of people more eager to support him than actually help him. The guy seems deeply troubled, and I think he is headed for more trouble.

    This isn't a fair match up considering the other guy is going to be armed with the canvas...
