"It should be emphasized to members that they do not possess police powers and they shall not carry weapons or pursue vehicles," the manual states. "Members should never confront suspicious persons who could be armed and dangerous."
This "manual" is a crock. Who is this "sheriffs' association" to tell sovereign American citizens that they "shall not" carry weapons?
The teen was unarmed. He was in his fathers community and returning to his home after a trip to buy candy. He could be my son or my grandson.
It is not analysis, it is speculation.
We simply do not know what interaction the kid and Mr. Zimmerman had with one another before things got physical, nor do we know which one first attacked the other.
Observing these simple facts is not "excusing the killer". Rather, it is "not being a retard".
Excellent points. If Zimmerman was driving his own, unmarked vehicle - Trayvon may very well have been fearful for his own life - which turns out to be tragically accurate.
We have a very serious neighborhood crime watch group and we would never stick our noses into people’s business unless we saw them committing a crime or had good reason to suspect a crime was about to happen. Then we would call the neighbors in danger and the cops.
We expect the neighbors here to be armed and ready to handle problems until the cops come. We help each other to be ready in case. We are not a gated community so there are no rent-a-cops driving around (thank goodness).
If anyone attacked the neighbors while they were out and about, he or she, black, brown or white - hoodie or not - might end up shot.
I got the idea that he came from an intact family from an earlier story from a few days ago.
However, all indications are still that the kid was not a highly troubled, so i can maintain that position for the time being.
Ray Lewis, Baltimore Ravens, lives a few miles away from Sanford and I haven’t heard a word from him.
Maybe we should be like him and hold comments of both side till it has been fully investigated.
Maybe, maybe not, some will remember Richard Jewell and Eric Rudolph! Some times the authorities get it right.
Many on this thread are assuming, because the dead kid was black, that he was a ghetto thug.
I disagree with this assessment. But the boy wasn’t after Z to stop and explain his presence, but Zimmerman was after the kid to stop and explain his presence, so I still think that Z brought a gun to the fist fight.
It’s just my opinion, but I’m sure this warrants further examination by the authorities.
Of course, we don’t hear anything from these so-called pastors when some black teens throw gasoline on a white kid and tell him, “You get what you deserve, white boy.” Hypocrites.
More bullsht outrage. Selective outrage. I never see a fuss raised when a young white man or woman is killed for no good reason by a gang of blacks and yes it is always blacks ganging up on one or two white boys. Good luck sticking a hate crime charge on any black assaulting, raping or killing white people.
In other words I refuse to be played by the usual cast of black racist agitators. On this particular case.... it does seem to be reckless and stupid homicide of the black teen.
Yep, and did you see my subsequent thread? A black militia led by some guy named Muhammed says they’re going to make a “citizens arrest” of Mr. Zimmerman, the Hispanic neighborhood watchman who shot the kid.
Thanks for the link.
Wow, what a tendentious article!
AP has certainly gone full commie.
Yes, but it does prove who was the aggressor.
You post garbage.
The AP story contains one out-of-context snippet from Zimmerman's 911 call.
It proves nothing.
The aggressor was the one who first initiated physical force or threat of violence against the other. Keep in mind that all accounts state that there was physical contact between the two parties before the shot was fired. Who struck the first blow and why? None of the stories I've seen so far answer this question.
You say what you do because you wittingly or unwittingly are trying to help the commies destroy civilization. You perhaps think you are being righteous and noble but in truth you are being a tool to evil.
You have no way of knowing whether this is true.
You state things as fact that you do not know to be fact because you are stupid and corrupt.
This is exactly what the leftists want you to do.
Congratulations on being a complete and utter tool.
No one on this thread is assuming this.
You lie because the commies have convinced you that some lies are noble and you are too stupid, weak, and corrupt to see that you are being played.
LOL, the accounts state, the dead guy is only talking by the 911 calls, several people called, they all had similar stories. You have no legal right to drive down the street and follow people and ask them what they are doing, cops even need probable cause. But this guy can get out of his car and mess with you, wrong. Hell he even missed the first shot.
Uh, come again?
You have no legal right to drive down the street and follow people and ask them what they are doing...
Nonsense. What law is broken when a person walks up to a stranger and asks "Excuse me, do you live around here?"
...cops even need probable cause.
You are being vague and stupid. Beat cops walk down the street and look at people or say hello all the time. They need no probable cause to do this. Now if they detain you, enter your home, pull you over when you are driving, other specific situations, yes they sometimes need probable cause. But just to say hello to someone walking down a public street? Of course not!
But this guy can get out of his car and mess with you...
Again you claim that Zimmerman "messed with" the kid but you have no knowledge to back this up. There must be some reason why you insist on saying one stupid and dishonest thing after another. I'm guessing that you are probably stupid and corrupt but perhaps there is some other explanation.
