    I'm sure the death of that Afro piece-of-shit is going to be part of every fund raising letter of the NRA. Without a gun, Zimmerman would have been severely beaten and possibly killed. And, if Zimmerman had managed to avoid the Afro, that Trayvon Martin piece-of-shit would still be alive, which is also an undesirable outcome.

    The shitbrained Lieberals keep insisting on their false account. That it's unreasonable for someone to want to follow a suspect so he doesn't get away. That Zimmerman was told not not follow. That Zimmerman continued to follow after he was told he didn't need to follow. And, that following the Afro somehow makes Zimmerman guilty when he the Afro attacked him - logic that liberals would never accept if we were talking about a drunk skank in a short skirt getting raped.

    Dumbass, citizens watch is just what it is, a watch, Zimmerman called the police the matter was over then, citizen watch entails watching and reporting any suspcious acts to the police, Zimmerman overstepped his lane by trying to be hero by following that kid and if someone were following me I'd feel threatened and would want to defend my self. Trayvon Martin isn't some Afro piece of shat, watch you damn mouth, you're talking about a human being who got killed, most likely trying to defend himself from someone trying to play hero based on racist stereotypes.

    It would be a mistake, however, to use the Zimmerman/Martin case to put SYG ‘on trial’ as well, as the problem is not the law but Zimmerman’s ignorance of, or contempt for, the law.

    The law is the problem, unless someone is under a real threat there should be no SYG law, no such law is needed for that. It presupposes that everyone who legally has a weapon are not subject to the type of bullshat that Zimmerman does. Everyone who legally and lawfully owns a gun are not citizens of good judgment trying to defend themselves.

    If someone is subject to an actual threat with no SYG law in place, his options for self-defense are severely limited.

    SYG merely negates common law duty to retreat. Any person who is prepared to use deadly force in self-defense needs to understand the laws in his jurisdiction and the appropriate context in which deadly force is justified.

    Zimmerman likely failed to do that.

    That a citizen fails to follow a law correctly doesn’t mean the law is ‘bad.’

    That law is not need and think about this from both sides instead of always from the perespective of the person that feels threatened with a need to react, put yourself in the place of an African American male, who has been portrayed by the media as violent and scary, walking down the street and someone pulls out and blasts you because they feel "threatened." To me its a law that allows careless people with stereotypes to blast people away and get away with. That law does not take into account both sides, thus it should be thrown out.

    If someone commits pre-meditated murder and attempts to use SYG as a ‘defense’ at trial, then he’ll be convicted of pre-meditated murder. That he believes SYG gives him license to kill outside of the bounds of the legal justified use of deadly force in self-defense, then the fault lies with the individual, not the law, and the individual is punished accordingly.

    Constitutional rights, including the right to self-defense, can’t be mitigated because the possibility exists that the right might be abused.
