How can someone pull out a gun and shot an unarmed person in a hand to hand...

...altercation and not be guilty of manslaughter??? I don't pretend to know what Zimmerman was thinking that night. I think 2nd degree murder is a very high bar in this situation without a living witness other than the shooter.

But, if someone drives aggressively during a road rage incident and kills someone...they typically get manslaughter...even when both participants are being reckless. The guy brought a gun to a fist fight...Florida is effed up beyond all reason.

Zimmerman was clearly stalking the kid. That's obvious based on the 911 tape. I don't care if the kid threw the first punch. I don't care if the kid was getting the better of Zimmerman. It's asinine that there are NO consequences to raising the bar to the point of shooting and killing someone in those circumstances. It's completely effed up.

For god's sake, is a new thread really necessary for this topic?

Doesn't matter.

He was acquitted.

Why do you care?

The prosecution obviously didn't, or they would have charged him with manslaughter.

So you dont care about facts or the law.

Good to know Michigan people are as stupid as advertised.

That's the problem. There's no telling exactly how the fight started and how serious TM was about killing GZ. The problem is that when and if something like this happens, how can you justify giving GZ jail time without knowing.

When it is self-defense.

Hmm ok, well let's say you were getting your absolute arse beat and feared for your life. You're a few head bangs from potentially death and have a gun on your hip, do you pull it out?

That's what I thought.

or

The only 100% agreed upon was that he was found not guilty and that is the system we all live by. period.

Lou Dobbs had listed the various ways people were murdered in 2011. Over 700 were murdered with the use of bodyparts (hands, feet, knees). Only a little over 200 were killed with assault weapons.

Trayvon had forty something seconds to stop beating Zimmerman's arse and he would be alive. If Trayvon had settled for 20 or 30 seconds beating a man screaming for help on the ground, he'd be alive. He'd be in jail for assault, but he'd be alive.

Is it possible to kill someone with your bare hands? Is it possible to crack someone's skull and give them brain damage when you are banging their head into the concrete?

Just answer yes or no.

Let's assume I'm more physically fit than you, on top of you, and I'm banging your head into the cement. You have a gun. What would you do to make sure you don't lose consciousnesses, get severely injured, die, or get shot by your own gun?

Also since we are obviously playing in inference game, does someone following you give you permission to beat their head into the ground?

Finally learn the difference between legal and moral consequences.

...altercation and not be guilty of manslaughter???


So, if someone starts to beat you up you should only be allowed to defend yourself with your hands?

But you pretend to know everything else.

Pretty sure this guy is trolling since he hasn't responded to a single post yet.
