    Default Shooting death of Trayvon Martin

    Trayvon Martin, an unarmed African-American teenager, was shot and killed in a gated community in Florida late last month by a white neighborhood watch captain, according to police. But the watch captain, George Zimmerman — a 28-year-old college student who has admitted to police that he shot the young man — still walks free. And Martin's family is pleading for answers and demanding justice.

    At this point there are more questions than answers in the young man's death, but this much is known: Martin was packing little more than a bag of candy and a canned iced tea on the night he was killed. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1332756.html
    how is it self defense when he initiated the confrontation? some are blaming the Castle Doctrine and Stand-your-ground Law for this situation. what are your thoughts on this case..or lack there of?
    Okay, before this thread this is what I knew about Tish, zip, zero, nada.
    I now know that Tish is a heavily armed, black, bi-sexual, truck driving woman who likes going to the clubs.

    My thoughts are that the bastard who shot the kid should be thrown into prison for life. He committed murder.

    It was straight up murder, and the fact that the shooter is still walking around free is disgusting.

    Indeed. Self-appointed captain of the gated community, carrying a loaded weapon and was told not to follow him, but did and then shoots and kills his "suspect"?

    Get that vigilante off the streets and land his ass in jail.

    Self defense.
    I had no idea that Skittles and Arizona Tea were considered deadly weapons.

    It would be neat if i could just go round shooting un-armed people and claim it was self defense with absolutely no proof.

    (sarcasm of course)

    The police over there should be ashamed of themselves.

    As for the guy who murdered the kid, jail time. Straight up jail time. No excuses.


    I'm sure other people want something worse for him (like direct karma via gunfire), but I still want to believe in the criminal justice system. As much as it disappoints and treats me as a lesser person/criminal-to-be.

    The problem with charging this guy is that only two people know what happened between them and one of those is dead. Zimmerman can say anything he wants, the other guy isn't around any more to contradict him.

    Right, but Zimmerman is white, and what's suspicious about that?

    It's actually not a hard case to make a charging decision about. It's not even all that hard a case to try. What a jury would do with it is another issue, but it's really not that difficult.
