Zimmerman was arrested and taken to the Police Station the night of the shooting. He was held for 4 hours, gave a statement without a lawyer, and then released without charges.

Shooting the kid in the head isn't going to work in his favor, imo. That suggests that he had enough time and saw well enough to aim a pretty difficult shot.

Do we know how many shots he fired? Did he aim for the head or was it just a "lucky" shot amongst many?

Yeah who knows. I haven't seen what kind of gun it was but it was a non fatal headshot, so it may well have been buckshot or something, which changes my analysis.

Anyway, there's no reasonable connection to Trayvon. However it shakes out, people getting shot while breaking into someone's house is nothing new.

SYG might actually play a role in that case, unlike Zimmerman's.

while I don't think that this might have been the best way to resolve the issue, Landry was certainly within his rights to shoot the intruder

it is possible that trayvon was an innocent kid, this kid was obviously not at all innocent.

I agree with them. It appears her office committed multiple ethical violations including withholding exculpatory evidence. Not to mention filing a criminal charge (2nd degree) that had no basis in fact and was in bad faith.

Good, I hope she is booted out of office for the reasons HB states. Of course, the marchers want her out for the opposite reasons.

What is great is that both the Left and the Right want her gone. Good riddance POS.

I hope the Florida Gov. has the balls to fire her. It would be a no lose for him. He appeases both sides.

After reading the link it appears that there is not enough information released to know exactly what happened.

The kid could have been an intruder and Landry could have been a too quick on the trigger shooter.

Yes the fact that he was arresting in my opinion makes it markedly different than Trayvon's case. I know nothing about the case, but people will try to make it apart of a pattern.

Well HB brings out that both Z and this guy were arrested initially. Z was free for 44 days till he was charged. This NOLA guy has been charged after the initial arrest.

And we all seem to agree that this case is different than the Sanford case. I would be surprised if the usual suspects ( A & J, the MSM, MNBC etc ) try to tie this case into the other case.

More likely it'd be castle doctrine, not stand your ground. Although in my state (not Louisiana) you could shoot someone who was in the process of breaking into your house well before the castle doctrine. It was actually codified in the statute. I'm pretty sure that applies to curtilage as well, but a quick googling suggests Louisiana doesn't expressly mention curtilage in the statute. That's too bad for this guy. Not that he'd have a chance of the law being fairly applied to a case like this in New Orleans anyway.

Police: Robbers tell man, 'This is for Trayvon Martin'

A weekend robbery in a racially diverse neighborhood of Washington may have been a hate crime, police said.

"This is for Trayvon Martin," one of the three black men told a white man as they approached him early Saturday, according to Washington Metropolitan Police Officer Anthony Clay.

The alleged robbery happened two weeks after a Florida jury acquitted George Zimmerman in the 2012 death of African-American teenager Trayvon Martin.

The men kicked the adult white male as they took his iPhone and wallet, Clay said Sunday.

I know I'm cynical but this reminds me of the chubby white chic that carved a backwards "B" into her cheek and claimed black Obama supporters did it.
