i'll give the neighborhood watch guy the benefit of the doubt and exclude respective race from the equation. but, even if he thought this kid was behaving suspiciously, what gave him the right to use lethal force? and why is neighborhood watch packing anyways? seems a tad overkill in a gated community.
p.s. i'd also be really interested to know (w/o looking at the article) the size of the community. how did he not recognize this kid?
