killing Trayvon - Page 247

post #3691 of 6250
That's the other thing that people don't seem to get: an acquittal doesn't mean that Trayvon deserved to die.

The level of emotion is reaching a great high and the level of thinking is ground level.

This is what working with pediatricians is like. Academic, primarily inpatient pediatricians at least.

Yes, exactly, this was a tragedy! Do you know anyone that thinks "Trayvon deserved to die"?

Just asking, because I do not. I like many believe that Z has not been proven guilty of the charges. And most if not all of my friends feel that way. I feel that Trayvon shouldn't have died and certainly didn't deserve to die. In a sense, Z can and may get off on " the law and logistics", for lack of a better term.

It really is a tragedy that a teenager going to buy skittles and return to where he was staying, ended up dead. And granted T might have been an incipient gang banger and bad actor. But he didn't deserve to die, and I can't imagine anyone making that argument.

t.

Well, yeah, actually. I haven't heard it from anyone I know personally, but there are some that would probably say so if asked. I have definitely seen people on the internet who think so. I don't think that's what most people think, and I definitely know it won't be the message from the jury if there's an acquittal, although apparently a lot of CNN writers are going to say that.

I have yet to see anyone propose Martin deserved to die but I have seen hundreds of posts stating that this is what anyone that does not want Zimmerman drawn and his innards set on fire is saying. To not want Zimmerman ground to a pulp means you're a racist and are saying Martin deserved to die. What I'm reading elsewhere is pretty damn ballistic.

God I just read more of that CNN Editorial. I can't believe a supposedly credible news source publishes shit like this.

Think about it: We're told over and over that if Zimmerman was afraid of Martin, according to Florida law, he had the right to put a bullet in the chamber of his concealed handgun, get out of his car after being told not to by the 911 dispatcher and follow and confront Martin and shoot him to death.
At the same time, we are told that Martin, who had far greater reason to fear Zimmerman, practically and for reasons of American history, did not have the right to confront his stalker, stand his ground and defend himself, including by using his fists. We are told that this was entirely unjustified and by doing so, Martin justified his own execution.

Seriously, that's either pure ignorance or disingenuous rabble rousing.

The comments are even better:
Quote:
Zimmerman is GUILTY! He followed this boy ignoring the 911 operator not to! He is a wimp that felt better with a gun until he came up with a boy fearing for HIS life defended his life and lost against this agressor and stalker....and bully. A cop wannabe!.... Zimmerman is 100% quilty! guilty...guilty...guilty on all accounts!

Well, okie dokie then.

Guilty on all counts? Can one really be guilty of murder and manslaughter for the same killing?

I wouldn't put it passed Florida. I bet the judge would allow it.

Whatever it takes to keep the rioting to a minimum.

I confess I didn't see that one coming.

Gee, if CNN is putting stuff like this out, I can only imagine what MSNBC is saying.

Maybe I'll watch Sharpton tonight for some objective coverage and commentary.

From that article:


"Some people have forgotten that Zimmerman was not even arrested initially. It took more than a month for the special prosecutor to bring the second-degree murder charge. And if not for mass protests across the country, he might not be the defendant in a murder trial at all."

Yes, this is about politics, not the facts of this case.
