When you kill someone, there are consequences. That's true.
But you are leaving out that when you attack someone, for simply asking what theyre doing in your neighborhood , there are also consequences.
For you to sit there and act like one should have dire consequences and the other should have none is dishonest and hypocritical.
Any time you lay your hands on another man, you escalate things to a level that you may wish you didn't.
You wanna say Zimmerman is reaping the 'reward' for taking a life...Fine...SO be it.
Then you have say Trayvon is reaping the reward for his dumb actions as well, based on the evidence.
You can't have it both ways.
