2. Here's an example of the typical attitude many folks have about gated communities

There are a few things about this, that haven't come out yet. If it were a gated community, the teenager shouldn't have been able to come and go as he pleased, the person he was visiting should have needed to let him in or out the gate. He was by himself, apparently. Zimmerman took a beating, but still no story as to why, or for what reason confronted the teen in the first place. A candy run, while visiting a friend? Seems a little odd as well, something you do before, or after visiting, but not something that can't wait. Could have been just an excuse to get out for a few minutes of mischief. At 17, pretty sure he was aware of how a gated community works, and neighborhood watch. If he wasn't doing anything wrong, would (he) have needed to beat up the vigilante (?) the friend's family could have straightened out. Does armed mean that they actually have to be displaying the weapon, or simple implying that they have one in their pocket? Think there is a lot more to this to come out. It's an active investigation, and no charges filed, so the details aren't public information.

Are most suburbanites like this? I grew up in an actual town, so I don't know.
