Self defense or murder?
This shooter aspired to be law enforcement and claims this was in self defense. He was the captain of the neighborhood watch, a volunteer, a wantabee is what I would call him!
Zimmerman called in that this young man was wandering around and looking suspicious. I have not heard what this young man did or said that would cause Mr. Zimmerman to shoot and kill this young man. I have seen however that he was on the football team and appeared to be a respectable young man. He was a hero, pulling his father from a house fire when he was only 9 years old.
This does not sound like a young man that would threaten another person to me what do you think?
Now what I want to know is if Treyvon was unarmed why was deadly force used against him?
This man, Zimmerman, was afraid for his life from this young man Trevon? This is the only time deadly force can be used so what gives? I think that this was an area of discrimination against a young person black or white. I raised two boys that would wear hoodies and wander around aimlessly and poke around just for the sake of doing so… They are Boys and Boys will be Boys. In my own opinion George Zimmerman didn’t have any reason to use deadly force and was just looking for an excuse to use his weapon and Treyvon just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. As the President said “If he had a son he would look just like Treyvon,” so in other words it could have been any one of our kids!
I do respect the protests that the kids have stirred up because they have been peaceful creating his initials on the football field using their own bodies. This was very creative and got the point across.
So where is George Zimmerman? Is he hiding out… On the run??? The police dept. says they know where he is but he has not been seen? The police chief has stepped down so there is something really wrong here or he would not have given up his job especially in this situation. So we will see how this turns out I hope that they investigate this and find out the real truth I believe we all know what the truth is. What are your thoughts?
I hope for peace and closure for Treyvon’s family.
