A simple reminder…




Travon Martin did nothing that warranted him getting gunned down by George Zimmerman.

An armed society is HARDLY always a polite one.

4. Well, I guess if we can't make light of innocent gunshot victims…

It's going to be REALLY tough to get through one's day.

I'd love to know your humorous views on these folks:



I need a good laugh today. Help me out here.

7. Not following

 

This says nothing at all about the circumstances of his death. Only that he had just visited the mini mart, which we already knew.

8. The point being that the only reason he was out in public was to go to the store

And did nothing that we know of to warrant being stalked, attacked and subsequently shot and killed by some hyper-vigilant gun toter.

9. I'd say 'attacked' is speculation

 

Anybody who tells you they know what happened right before the shot is filling in the blanks with their own biases. There are still missing pieces and that's what the trial is for.

10. However you'd like to spin it, Travon Martin was shot dead…

After doing nothing more than shopping and was walking back to his family until an armed Zimmerman took his life.

I'm sorry that you're objecting about being reminded of any of this.

11. Insulting bullshit post

 

I'm not spinning anything, nor do I object to being reminded of anything. You are full of it.

There are still details to be filled in. They will probably determine what the verdict will be.

12. Apparently, I struck a nerve…

In a post I wrote to the memory of another victim of American gun violence.

Fancy that.

17. You're quite entitled to entertain that particular opinion, of course…

However it is, after all, just your opinion.

13. He was attacked.

Anyone who follows another person, confronts them, and grabs at them in public, deserves to get their ass kicked. Zimmerman was looking for a fight, found one, proceeded to lose, and like a coward, pulled his gun. My only regret (besides a kid's death) is that Trayvon didn't incapacitate the shaved ape that attacked him. I hope this guy is convicted of murder 2, and tried for federal hate crimes. This is one of the few cases in which I would support the death penalty, I think that would send a clear message to all the other gun nuts that society will not tolerate this type of behavior.

16. Actually agree with most

 

But I haven't seen evidence Zimmerman initiated a physical confrontation. What happened between the initial verbal confrontation and the shot isn't clear, AFAIK. Maybe he did initiate it. But I don't know.

Not sure why that argument causes people to get their panties in a bunch.
