[quote user="Kase-1"][quote user="dezzzR"]This trayvon martin case is being beaten to death....
[/quote]Rightfully so, he was an unarmed kid who was shot to death, have you listened to to details of what went down??? Its DISGUSTING!!!!
Cmon Dezz I expected better from you
the whole new "eye witness information" about how the kid ran after him, beat him, etc....yet there are no wounds or bruises found on Zimmerman
Unfortunately, Florida's laws are bull**** and allow you to shoot to kill when you fear your life is threatened.
I also dont understand why he hasnt been arrested. Arrest now...figure it out later. Regardless of self defense or not, he killed a man. you cant just let a guy walk around while you try to sort things out. </p>
first off, I agree with the Florida law that allows you to shoot to kill when you fear for your life, I don't see how that's a bull**** law, if you fear for your life shouldn't you be able to protect yourself? shooting someone in the leg is actually hard you know, it's not so simple...plus if they also have a gun then it's not going to do you much good.
secondly, what happened to innocent until proven guilty, why would we arrest him now and figure it out later? that goes against everything our legal system stands for.
I hate that you guys all jump into these emotional responses...it's whats wrong with people nowadays, you can't change the way a system works every time you don't like something someone did, you have to follow due process...otherwise why even have laws in the first place.
If Zimmerman is guilty then I hope he is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, but until he's proven guilty I want him to be given a fair trial and I want all rules to be followed...I don't want him being treated differently just because his case made big news.
[/quote]Innocent til proven guilty applies ONLY to trials, not to arrests
And you really agree with Florida's law!?!?! Well I think you're threatening my way of life, does that mean that I can drive upstate and murder you???
So far Zimmerman cant get a fair trial, cause you cant go to trial for a crime unless you're arrested and according to you he shouldnt be arrested and in turn he shouldnt go to trial for a crime he obviously comitted??
You are right Kase. But they have convicted this guy already in the court of public opinion.</p>
It seems that you have as well.</p>
[/quote]Dont kid yourself, public opinion doesnt mean tish!!!!
I have because its painfull obvious what happened, and its obvious that you have your opinion on the case as well, does that mean you're right???
If I had to choose I would say that the guy followed him, confronted him and then shot him during a scuffle. Thats at least manslaughter, if not worse.</p>
But I can't say that I know what so many out there presume to know. No one really knows what happened except these two people, and one of them is dead.</p>
This is exactly what happened in the Duke case. everybody thought they <u>knew</u> exactly what happened. MSNBC was on the scene along with Rev. Al and Jesse Jackson. Rich white preppies and a black victim. The nation was in outrage. these kids were publicly scorned and afraid to leave their houses.</p>
And they were all proven absolutely innocent.</p>[/quote]Im a working class, blue collar Irish-American living in a blue collar diverse neigborhood, neither a rich white preppy or a black victim.
Cops told him to stay put, dont approach the person, and dont start a confrontation, all of that is on the 911 tape its not us 'liberal' twisting the truth
Sounds like you think you know exactly what happened, but in actuallity me and you know the same as everyone else except for Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin
