Something that I haven’t seen discussed is that what apparently made the kid look “suspicious” is that he was on foot, aside of course from being black.
I walk when I can rather than drive simply because I think we drive too much. Exercise, energy usage, etc. In an amazingly large percentage of the country it is almost impossible to walk safely, simply because of the way the roads are built.
Now we’re going to start shooting pedestrians for being “suspicious” characters?
I was doing a little walking in my neighborhood, doing some walking-laps on a side street, and some busybody has the temerity to stick his fool head out the door and yell, “Everything okay?”, but in a suspicious tone, not a helpful one.
I responded poorly. Instead of the “Just getting some exercise” answer, I should have yelled, “NO! The damned VOICES won’t shut UP, and I’ve already killed three of the babies! HEY! HEY YOU! COME HERE!!!!”
My brother and I used to walk down to the neighborhood 7-11 when we were kids without batting an eye. It was the nearest place to get candy and Slurpees without needing mom to drive us.
Keep in mind that this shooting occurred in the Orlando metro area, a cesspool if there ever was one. Aside from the Disney resort and properties, much of the Orange and Seminole county rural and suburban areas are dicey, at best. I don’t blame Zimmerman for carrying, esp. considering the sort of violence and gang garbage going on in that part of the Florida.
You’ve posted your usual nonsequitur.
