Also, im not saying he should have assumed he was dangerous because of what he had on, that just shows the way Zimmerman was thinking. Every race and nationality has murderers in it. I dont care what your race is or how you dress, murderers come in all colors and can wear suit and ties. Im just saying i dont feel he was wrong for watching but approaching without Trayvon doing anything wrong was stupid. If he had stopped him in the middle of a burglary okay but wakking down the street??? Come on. Wrong is wrong.
B4It Im not saying automatically assume the worst of people. However, I dont put anything past anyone. If its broad day and i see you I will be the first to say hello neighbor. In todays world the reality is you have to constantly be on watch. I live in a good neighborhood, never had any real problems but a few years ago while I was home alone with my kids and my husband was at work, someone tried to break into my house. Luckily I woke up when I heard the window shatter and my would be robber got a hammer to his head.
That situation put me on edge because my kids and I could have been killed. So, i say always be aware of your surroundings. Dont assume the worst, but never be too quick to trust either.
I rarely comment on here, I usually just read the comments. However, there are some things that I don't get about the commants being made on either side of the board. I get why Zimmerman called the police. If I saw a stranger walking through my community I would be concerned maybe even follow them, but to approach was idiotic. He endagered himself and the other members of his community. What if Trayvon had a weapon and a gunfight ensued? Innocent people/children could have been killed from random gunfire. People have the right to protect themselves, their families, property, and community. However, when you decide to play Police officer, you have to face the consequences for your actions.
As far as the facebook posts and drug use being used in court, I personally dont feel that it is relevant in this case. Most people know that facebook is a joke. Facebook is what you want people to see, not who you really are. A profile has little to do with what happened that night. Thats why you have to be very careful about what you put on the internet. If that is not who he really was he should not portray himself that way.
I think that Zimmerman is guilty but should get a fair trial. Really looks as if there is a lot of support on both sides.
