    I don't know what happened in terms of what caused the shooting. I believe this case was handled poorly by the cops. When I shot a black youth who had jumped me (along with another) I was detained for two hours and questioned by the police and the DA for the entire county. I was not cuffed nor arrested because three witnesses who had no clue who I was confirmed everything I told the cops and the non-shot mugger claimed I just whipped out a gun and started shooting 20 feet away from him and his friend-the paramedics told the cops the shooting was a contact shooting as I had said. So after two hours, when my story was confirmed by three witnesses and the paramedics plus the evidence proved the mopes were lying, I was released and the DA said I was not gonna be charged though he was going to convene a grand jury and require me to testify which I did.

    now in this case there were no such witnesses nor forensic proof that one side was lying. so Zimmerman should have been detained, questioned etc
    Did you go looking for these kid's school records to try and find anything you could to prove these guys were capable of such a thing? Millions of kids do stupid **** all around the country - they don't deserve to be called criminals because of it. Whomever attacked you was actually looking to start something. They weren't just getting some food and bumped into you. You were minding your own business and two people actually came after you.

    I probably did more actual criminal **** by the time I was 14 than Trayvon did in his entire life. Yet I smartened up, became a father, got a mortgage, and now for all intended purposes I'm a law abiding citizen. To call a 17 year old a criminal because of some weed, a screw driver and jewelry that belonged to a friend is ridiculous.

    No. They're both irrelevant. I'm just asking how you know he is not. You seem to be dodging the question. How do you know he's not a tea partier?

    SERIOUSLY.

    If you have liberal friends who you think would believe that, you need to stop talking to them immediately. If you have conservative friends who think that this is how liberals think, you need to tell them to read a book.
    It doesn't have a thing to do with whom I "hang out" with.

    SERIOUSLY.

    The fact that you don't think scores of people didn't assume this from the outset means you need to get out more. Again -- SERIOUSLY.

    Well, I have to admit. You might be right about this. I teach at a University, so the liberals and conservatives I know would NEVER EVER think anything of the sort.

    That includes my 18 year old students.

    Maybe this whole thing is in worse shape than I thought.

    By "this whole thing," I mean America.

    This tells us more about your prejudice than his...
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I've expressed none.

    I think you may overestimate the people you know at your university, particularly among the student body.

    As to the country at large, well, reactionaries are hardly new, but not being aware of the type of person who would do this is pretty naive. Witness, for example, the immediate blame laid for the Giffords shooting. If you think that many of the same people who participated in that didn't also assume that Zimmerman was probably a conservative Republican and a racist, then I don't know what to say.

    Absent any evidence that he's TEA party, why should I think that he is? Let's say he was though, would your initial response to a thread making an issue of that be exactly what it was in this thread?
