Both sides of this debate have shown poor form. I am glad the thread title was not changed. Those who were desperate to make this a white vs.. black killing like the idiot who started this thread showed their own racism. The kill pinky nonsense was disgusting although fully expected when shitbags like Sharpton and the black panthers are involved. The crowd that feebly wanted this to be an anti gun story failed miserably.
The other side who jumped on the Zimmerman is a hero team should be ashamed of themselves. There is a large group of them who were in a frenzy to cheer a back kid in a hoodie getting shot as some sort of heroic act against thugs are nothing more than racist pricks also. I have read that this kid was no angel but he sure as heck did not need to die. When I was his age I was no angel either, like the song "you don't have to dig to deep to find some dirt on me". If some clown was jacking with me when I was just walking home I can guarantee I would have tried to kicked the guys ass also.
Zimmerman ain't no hero, he went out of his way to confront this kid. I don't have a doubt in my mind if he did not have a gun he would have stayed in his car. I think he is a chickenshit wanna be badass and nothing more. I fully support gun rights and if threatened with no other option shooting someone. He was not threatened until he initiated the confrontation. He should have kept his wanna be cowboy ass in his car and let the police handle this. I don't know how this is going to turn out but forgive me if I pass on cheering for this clown~
