Would be nice if some big name killer attorney helped out the Zimmermans. If I had the means, I’d pay for it myself as I believe he did nothing wrong. At all. If I was in the same circumstance, I would have done what he did...taking a life cannot be an easy thing-I’ve never had to do it-but just trying to even imagine as best I can what he was and is going thru, makes my heart break.
I feel sorry for the kid’s parents too; I don’t have children, so I don’t know what it’s like to lose one. I can only imagine losing my nephew this way. But as upset as I would be, I would be aching inside wishing that my nephew had not done what he did and crossed that line. If you act like a thug, you will be treated like a thug.
This prosecutor is so overzealous and if Tray had whacked George’s head on the ground a few more times, she’d be prosecuting HIM instead. That should give her pause, but she is going after this guy like he’s the next Charles Manson.
The man is not a criminal; he was just defending himself from a real criminal-thug. Was he supposed to let himself be beaten to death?
Sorry for the rant-I just feel they are after the Zimmerman’s for ANYTHING they can get so he is seems like more of a criminal-kinding of like they want to add to his resume with any additional charges they can come up with.

I’ll see your rant and raise you another ;)
I’m a single parent, having lost my wife to cancer. I raised our daughter in a way most here would consider far too ‘liberally’. But the one thing I instilled in her from day 1 was ‘actions have consequences”. If you screw up you are going to pay for it and Dad ain’t gonna bail you out.
A large number of her friends screwed up and their parents bailed them out. Or someone else did. Most of them have done jail time. A couple are dead. The parents have no idea why. They blame everyone but themselves.
My daughter avoided all that. She’s now got a great career i the Air Force. She credits her success to knowing there would be no bailouts and ‘excuses’ made for her. That she was responsible for her own actions.
IMO, lots of parents, even conservative ones, think sheltering their kids from the evils of the world will keep them safe. It’s my belief that most of the world’s Trayvons are created because they were never given/taught responsibility by their parents. And so they do any damn thing they want and expect that someone somewhere will bail them out.
That said, The prosecutor follows the same exact pattern. She feels no responsibility for her actions ‘knowing’ that the state/law will bail her out no matter what she does. There is no action/reaction for her. and like martin and a million other kids, she’s running wild because no one ever held her responsible for her own actions.
This entire system is not fixable. It has to eat itself and collapse before we can start over and do it right. Perhaps then responsibility for ones actions will rule the day rather than an entire cluster of law for personal benefit and existance for personal gratification.
