50. If it is evil for George Zimmerman to kill Trayvon Martin for what Trayvon could but NOT necessarily

WOULD have done (as we did to the Innocent People of Iraq, btw) i.e. stealing-&-unjustified-violence-against-Z, then it is evil for us to hurt and/or kill George Zimmerman for what he could, but not necessarily WOULD have done to Trayvon Martin, i.e. racially motivated cold-blooded murder.

Capability IS different from Intentionality, after-all, they intersect but are not identical. This is why it is difficult to read people's intentionality from their capabilities; all we have are whatever manifestations of the capabilities that are available to us, which might or might not reveal a significant probability of intentionality or will.

And if it is okay/good for us to kill or harm George Zimmerman for what he could, but not necessarily would, have done to Trayvon Martin, murder, then it is okay for George Zimmerman to kill Trayvon Martin for what he could but not necessarily would have done.
