heartallonfire asked: Interesting! Why do you think that (about the Zimmerman case)? I don't know much about the case, but I'm wondering why you think that.
I just think Zimmerman’s story matches up. He is a good guy. He was volunteering for his neighborhood. He has a clean record. He has been tutoring underprivileged black kids on the weekend for years. Zimmerman called the cops, as he had done many times before with other suspicious characters in his neighborhood, and didn’t pursue Trayvon. When the dispatcher told him to walk away, he said ok and headed to his car. That is where I believe Trayvon attacked him. Trayvon had a record. He was on drugs at the time of his death (which we know can severely alter your mood and thought processes such as whether or not it is a good idea to attack a man on the way to his car). The injuries Zimmerman sustained from the attack were backed completely by his story he told and the only eyewitness in the case. He couldn’t get Trayvon off him and when Trayvon told him he would die that night, he took out his gun. Not to kill him, but to injure Trayvon to protect himself. Any sane person would do that. If you want to kill someone, you don’t shoot them once. You go at it with multiple shots. He didn’t. He just wanted Trayvon to stop beating him up and smashing his head on the ground (again, proved by injuries). He was immediately arrested but the police let him go because it was quite evident it was self defense. He was free and fine until Trayvon’s family started the whole “this is a racist thing” against Zimmerman. Unfortunately, many people on the internet never looked into the story completely and instead went along with it without looking at the facts. Then of course there is our imbecile president (may his term end soon) who made a public statement (which is completely 120% inappropriate for his position) further decried this as a racial case which it is not. All in all, Zimmerman was a real good guy and it seems completely out of character to suddenly kill someone based on race. Trayvon had a past and a record and was on drugs at the time. It seems to come together pretty simply to me.
