Yup deep, I'm an Internet tough guy. Really? C'mon man, you don't agree with me so you have to call me names. You don't know me at all, nor what I carry, if I even carry. Do people get shot with their own guns sure...not this time tho. Allegedly TM circled back around and accosted Z when he returned to his vehicle. Allegedly at this point TM attacked Z, this made him the aggressor. Allegedly TM saw
Z's weapon while he was on top of him punching him in the face. Allegedly TM told Z at this point " you're going to die "
This is all pretty much hearsay from Z's father, so we don't know what is actual fact.
My point Deep was simply I understand why Z pulled the trigger and I think it was a justified shooting.
Tragic none the less. Doesn't make me a tough guy and I refuse to grow up. Been there done that, it's no fun.
I hope you have a better day.
Survival is not mandatory.....
The dispatcher did NOT tell him to "NOT FOLLOW" Trayvon. I have stated before how fortunate, or well-trained, the Dispatcher was. When Zimmerman was continuing to follow trayvon the Dispatcher stated, "We do not need you to do that." THAT is NOT telling Zimmerman to not follow Trayvon.
That was fantastic wording. What it was intended to do was take the Dispatcher off the hook for what happened. If Zimmerman had quit following Trayvon and Trayvon would have mugged and raped a little ol lady then the Dispatcher could just as easily say that they did not tell him to not follow Trayvon. They just said they did not need him to.
So everyone should WAIT, and hold their tongues..especially those that want to slant the truth.

You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
