don't be so gullible
Any person that has an unarmed civilian trying to beat them to death is fully justified in killing the bastard.
You’re talking about the white kid at MSU who was murdered by three black guys in his dorm? Totally agree. And he didn’t even have any Skittles!!!
So, you feel this way about blacks killing whites, too, or just in this incident?
Any car accident that kills a small child is one too many.
Any inground pool that causes the death of a toddler is one too many.
What if that unarmed citizen was raping you daughter? Hmmmmmmmm.......
You, I am sure meant well but your comment, without appropriate context is vapid.
Disagree! If someone has assualted me broken my nose and is beating the back of my head against the concret sidewalk they can expect a immediate full force response on my part. Take that as fair warning.
He wasn't unarmed, he had 2 arms and was apparently using both of them to harm somebody.
As we all know, no one has ever been killed by punches and kicks...
What did you say when Vicky Weaver’s head was blown off?
When Mario Paz was shot in bed?
That depends entirely upon the proposed solution. Restricting Second Ammendment rights would be just plain wrong, and much worse than wrongful death from time to time. Sorry, that is just the plain truth.
One too many what?!? What about instances of justifiable homicide? Just because an attacker is unarmed doesn't mean that the use of deadly force is one instance too many. It is not better for an attacker to murder an innocent, but armed person, than for an innocent person to use deadly force to stop an attack on his life by an unarmed person.
And you would have taken the beating by someone who is 6’4” and a football player, from the young man who was claiming he was going to kill him/her, and died? For what?
According to Zimmerman AND WITNESSES, Zimmerman was heading back to his car when he was attacked by Trayvon. Zimmerman was pretty banged up and it was also confirmed that the person yelling help on the 911 call was Zimmerman. I’m not sure what was expected of him. Despite the pictures of Trayvon showing him to be a tiny little middle schooler he was taller and in better shape. Attacking from behind does give him the advantage. I don’t know how I would react but if someone was pounding my head into the pavement (also verified by witnesses), I might shoot, too.
Would you be happier if they were whacked with baseball bats?
Okay...question for you and all other FReepers:
Does this equate to ‘Black = Guilty’?
Rhetorically speaking, you, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the MSM and a host of others are guilty of what you are accusing Mr. Zimmerman of doing: Shooting first and asking questions later.
From what I am reading that is coming out today, it sounds very much like this young thug was, in fact, shot in self-defense. Tragic? Absolutely. But you and your band of buddies listed above are precisely the kind of people that enable and perpetuate such incidents because you make excuses, garble the facts and give them cover. Disgusting!!!
An armed civilian who respects the law should defend himself and his family. Or maybe you think all honest people should just be passive victims.
You need to grow up.
An October 16, 2009 article in The Daily Mail stated, “Ironically, the case has now generated more publicity surrounding the furor over whether or not political correctness was behind the US medias decision to largely ignore the story than it did for the murders themselves.
According to news reports, Christian and Newsom had gone on a date at a local restaurant on Saturday, January 6, 2007, but did not return home. During their night out, the couple was carjacked, bound and blindfolded by three males, and “taken back to Lemaricus Devall ‘Slim’ Davidson’s rented house on Chipman Street.”
Christian’s parents found her abandoned Toyota 4-Runner two blocks away from the Chipman Street house the following Monday with the help of her mobile phone provider. An envelope recovered from the vehicle yielded fingerprint evidence that led police to Lemaricus Davidson and 2316 Chipman Street. When police went to the address on Tuesday, January 9, they found the home unoccupied and Christian’s body in a trash can in the kitchen.
According to the testimony of the Knox County Acting Medical Examiner Dr. Darinka Mileusnic-Polchan at the subsequent trial of Eric Boyd, Newsom was repeatedly sodomized with an object and then blindfolded, gagged, arms and feet bound and his head covered. Barefoot, he was either led or dragged outside the house to a set of nearby railroad tracks. He was shot in the back of the head, the neck, and the back, and his body then set on fire.
Channon’s death came only after hours of sexual torture, medical examiner Mileusnic-Polchan testified. Channon suffered horrific injuries to her vagina, anus and mouth. She was not only raped but savaged with “an object,” possibly a broken chair leg, the doctor testified. She was beaten in the head. Some type of chemical was poured down her throat, and her body, including her bleeding and battered genital area, likely scrubbed with the same solution - all while Channon was alive, the forensic expert said. She was then “hog-tied,” with curtains and strips of bedding, her face covered tightly with a small trash bag and her body stashed inside five large trash bags before being placed inside a large trash can and covered with sheets. Channon died slowly, suffocating, the medical examiner said.
Unless the guy is naked and can’t move, you can’t assume he’s unarmed. To make the assumption that anyone is unarmed is a serious folly and foolhardy on your part.
If someone is attacking me, he better understand that armed or not, I will defend myself and I am always armed.
Stupidity should be painful and in the case of Treyvon, it was lethally painful.
He got what he asked for.
Bumper sticker reasoning.
Trayvon had two good arms and used them in an assault.Too bad he didn’t have much of a functioning brain
Then we have your breathtaking non sequitur that using necessary force to defend oneself is akin to "Black = Guilty" (unless, of course, you forgot the sarcasm tag ...)
In Chicago last weekend alone, 49 people were gunned down in 3 days. Ten died. Two teenagers gunned down a 6 yr old girl standing in front of her house.
I guess that’s 49 too many, eh
Yet 1,000 Chicagoans were marching for Tray-von and Dickless Turban D, Il, and the REV-rund Jesse Jackson of Chicago Il, were pimping Tray-vons death for publicity
“Never go full retard.”
No. It equates to “if someone is trying to kill me by beating my brains out, and I am armed, they are dead.”
You know the answer to that.
Don’t be asking stupid questions.
I agree...as soon as the bad guys stop hurting the good guys and the govt becomes an entity that works in the best interest of the people, I will throw my guns into the river....phew, I feel better now...
But that’s not the case here.
And apparently you just wanted to make a blanket statement with no intention of answering anyone who questions you assumption.
And, judging by your non response, you just assume the mods won’t notice that you’re just trolling and won’t zap you..
Any tragedy that is used as a tool to further erode freedoms is one too many...
Unjustifyably = unjustifiably
the guy is Hispanic with black family members and he was mentoring a black kid.
why muddy the waters any more than the MSM, NAACP and the zer0bama is already muddying the waters...
Yep...sarcasm tag forgotten. My bad.
(We need a way to “undo” or edit.)
yes, that is so true... next time a big hulking burglar invades the home of a crippled octagenarian with the intent of strangling him I hope the old guy has the sense to make sure he does NOT shoot if the man is unarmed...
Maybe we should make it a rule that it is always nice in a polite society that you ASK FIRST if your assailants are unarmed so that you don;t shoot them unfairly before they kill you
because if only ONE criminal life is saved,.. it will be worth it
I would too...see my tagline
If you don't value your own life then why should I?
What you seem to be telling me is that I must allow someone younger and stronger to beat on me rather than shooting the SOB!
Tellyawhat, it ain't gonna happen!
geez that was an idiotic question...
are you new here?
> Any single incident where an unarmed civilian is gunned
> down is one too many
Unless the “unarmed civilian” is pounding somebody’s head into pulp against the sidewalk.
How can you make such a baseless statement? However, opinions are like *ssholes, everybody has one!
It’s not that simple.
There is still a lot of uncertainty about this case, but one can come up with countless scenarios where an unarmed person might justifiably be shot.
Nope...meant to put in a sarc tag and forgot. Sometimes I think things and type in what I think without adding the appropriate addition to clarify.
Black does NOT equal guilty.
“Thug”, on the other hand...
I believe this was a knee-jerk reaction by both of you based on your previous posts.
This thing has gotten blown way out of control. This isn’t being reported by the liberal news media with the truth, only to stir the flames of those ready to blow it up further.
Shame on everyone....take a step back and look at the truth.
AND when is it legal for a “group” to offer bounty DEAD or alive in this country?
cyborg - love your dress and your testimony posts.
