"Doesn't Trayvon Martin actually have the right to kill George Zimmerman if George Zimmerman is stalking him and the police have told him not to stalk him?"
This question was actually asked Tuesday on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight by schlockumentary filmmaker Michael Moore during a discussion about gun laws in the wake of the shootings in Aurora, Colorado (video follows with transcript and commentary):
MICHAEL MOORE: Can I say something about that? About the Trayvon Martin thing? Let me put it this way. Let's say George Zimmermans right when he says Trayvon Martin tried to kill him. Alright. But it was George Zimmerman who was told by the police to quit stalking this boy. And he was the one who was committing the infraction against the law by disobeying the police and going after Trayvon Martin. Doesn't Trayvon Martin actually have the right to kill George Zimmerman if George Zimmerman is stalking him and the police have told him not to stalk him?
We can question all day long, but the only ones who will make that determination are the jury. The rest of us can discuss it until the end of time but it does not matter. All that matters is what the jury ends up saying.
This is why libs are against gun ownership. They would be killing everyone for everything (as they have throughout history).
Moore should be asked if he thinks the executives of General Motors should have the right to kill him, for stalking them?
Granted, had they done this, it would have saved our nation much bad taste from “Jabba the Filmmaker.”
The guy’s a complete and utter dingelheimer. He would have had a right to use lethal force to protect himself had Zimmerman attacked him, but that obviously wasn’t the case.
But think how many bullets those GM executives would have needed.
Do they even make magazines that size?
Good question, so many of the defenders of Trayvon Martin say YES, that's street law.
Mr. Gun Control is against private gun ownership, but not people killing people. Wonderful.
PM is CNN’s BOR
Maybe its just me, but I get the feeling Michael Moore is stalking me.
I listened to him about 5 seconds last night. That was all I could take without throwing something through my TV.
Mr. Moron, stalking is a crime that occurs over an extended period of time, and it is not equivalent to following a suspicious person at all.
Furthermore, the act of stalking someone does not directly place their life in imminent danger, as bashing a person head into concrete repeatedly DOES.
So, no, the thug Martin would not have had the right to shoot Zimmerman.
NO! The police dispatcher’s SUGGESTION is merely that. Zimmerman had absolutely no legal obligation to follow the dispatcher’s suggestion.
Dispatchers are not deputized law enforcers, and that’s likely to come up in the trial when it gets under way.
Actually, I think we can fully accept that a neighborhood watchman who is looking out for the neighborhood is not a fair target to be killed. I would consider that concept to be settled.
Just more evidence that liberals are all stoopid imbeciles.
911 operators are not police, so it doesn't matter what they tell you.
Black can murder whites for the most minor reason.
Whites should never defend themselves.
