Trayvon wasn't really a suspect, he was walking through the same gated community his father lived in, and his fathers girlfriend father lived in...to my understanding.
Quote cards1: Watch means WATCH IMO and if you spot something suspicious, call the PROPER authorities. Not follow a teenager with a drink and skittles and a baggie with weed residue in it. and you can't justify killing someone on what they "might" be doing, or "might" going to do.
Sad a young man lost his life, but It's over now and we must move on. Really feel bad for his parents/family.
George Zimmerman did call the proper authorities. He called 911 and reported the suspect in the area.
A Neighbor also called 911 and reported Trayvon's attack on Georgie. You could hear George screaming for help during this call. This tape was the crucial piece of evidence during the trial and proved that Trayvon was the aggressor.
My Dad is a cop, so leans towards George's side too. Every day, police officers are forced to make quick second judgement calls. When it's dark, it's hard to tell if the suspect has Skittles in his pocket or a gun. Was Trayvon high on weed? Maybe....
It could've easily been George who died that night and the Zimmerman family mourning.
Yes he called 911, and they told him to "stop, do nothing, don't follow the kid" Wait for a REAL cop, like your dad. Zimmerman wouldn't have died that night if he had WATCHED, and waited for a real police officer. He could have reported what he saw on his WATCH and went home.
Maybe high on weed? A teenager lost his life on a maybe, if we went around shooting all the teenagers that were high on weed we would wipe out a whole bunch of teenagers.
That's my last comment on this matter, I should have stayed away from this thread...back to the soap threads this one started out about what EB said, and he has every right to express his opinion. IMO.....
