I mean if you ( the general public) saw an able bodied man pummeling the ever living shit out of an 85 year old woman on your sidewalk or if this had been a girl would it change how you responded? Hide and call 911? Have we become so fearful of the legal system we refuse to get involved in anything? Someone tell me I'm wrong and explain to me why no one could stick their head out the door and say hey WTF are you doing?
That wasn't Trayvon calling for help, it was the homeowner.
