Re: “How Disgusting: George Zimmerman Posts Graphic Photo of Trayvon Martin's Dead Body on Twitter

People make much about martins toxicology reports- but what of it. So what he smoked weed prior to his murder. Does that mean he deserved to be killed? Let's look at the facts, Zimmerman was following Martin and was told not to pursue him. He stated he was afraid. If that's so why didn't he go home? Zimmerman was the antagonist in this situation and he stalked Martin. So if Martin perceived Zimmerman as a threat, why doesn't he have the right to "stand his ground" and defend himself. Why is the right wing media criminilizing him for defending himself against a person he perceived as a threat? It's a constitutional right to defend oneself from harm. He believed this grown man, following him at night meant him no good. I have 3 boys, any one of them could have been trayvon. And to the people who are saying he's a thug or they're posting pictures of him at 14, it doesn't matter- he was someone's child. I bet of a black man killed an unarmed 17 year old it would have been a different outcome and all you white people would see it for what it is- murder. This situation could have been avoided if zimmerman took his ass home and left the policing to the police.
