No because I don't believe in the death penalty.
Tbh id rather see him rot in jail with a black celly
There's so many things wrong with this; first off ~ a gated community with a neighborhood watch would (at least) imply the watchman having to know all the residents of the area; that kid and his parents included, yet shot him for "appearing suspicious"?
I'm sure there's more to this tragedy than any of us are aware of, or being told by via the press. But the person who shot the kid, should be held accountable.
should he receieve the death penalty? i think u mean should he be charged at all. he is eating breakfast at home as we speak
Obviously dude should be charged, but I gaurentee it went down differently than that video purports...
Dude was probly racist, said something like hey, what's in yer pocket boy, and the kid mouthed off, which made the guy come up and grab him, and the kid prolly hit him
Either way though, a "self appointed neighborhood watch captain"
has no reason to be shootin' people.
Here's actual news of it, a picture of Zimmerman, he looks mexican to me, and not all that old...
one side of the story always gets blown up... Which one is the medias choice.
I agree theres probably more to the story.
If zimmerman did something wrong then he should be punished or held accountable.
from what i hear about the story hes guilty as fuck.... but Im way the fuck up here in canada and only get snippits on here a few on TV....
but i dont believe in killing him to make it all better
seeing as his actions were arguably legal in the state of florida i don't see him getting the death penalty. perhaps he'll be shot in the streets for appearing suspicious instead.
I hate when dudes like this do that kinda shit. On the other hand it certainly gets people together under a cause.
I hate when the population jumps on some seemingly cold blooded racial murder withour knowing the facts... why wasn't dude arrested? Prolly cause it was in self defense, unless he's auper sadistic and beat himself up after shooting the kid and hired a witness to tell about it...
well its obvious why breathlesss:
1. the kid is 17.
2. its a gated community i believe they both lived in
3. an unarmed kid was murdered
4. its not even being taken to trial
5. a confession was given and a phone convo was obtained about the murder
im not saying the guys guilty due to my limited knowledge but at least this should go to trial.
It's still under investigation from what I've been reading... trial or not will be determinate on what unreleased evidence shows, a couple 911 calls, one of which was actually made by zimmerman, a rather odd, in my opinion, eyewitness testimony, zimmerman and the kid's criminal history, if any, bullet trajectory and distance, numerous other things that will show whether it was in self defense and if dude's reaction was called for in the sense of, was the kid choking him or something and whether it was a "kill" shot or meant to stop him
If the guy has a ccw or not is another big factor
what do you mean if?
murder isn't "wrong" enough?
nigga, he shot a fucking kid dead.
who cares if it's racially motivated/self-defence, shooting a kid dead is never justified.
you can read both sides of the story, but one side killed the other side - the end.
no worries nu
i was just saying I just dont know enough about the story. Sounds like hes guilty as fuck. I dont wanna jump to conclusions...
but yeah old zimmy is guilty it seems
ill shoot a 17yr old in the face with a shotgun if he came at me with a knife while i was holding the shotgun. I care about me. I dont wanna catch a knife in the throat
(just an example of when shooting a kid is justified)
17... ain't like the kid was 8, 17 years is enough to make yu big and atrong enough to be tjought of as a man, I don't think this is is matter of racism or "kid killing", it'd be negligent homicide or manslaughter, somethin like that
So here's basically a loosely tied bow of my conclusion...
Life of another person doesn't mean anything. Irrespective of the action we'll always defend someone. The judicial system, in this case works in favour of the shooter ~ because there's always the possibility that one will be able to get off scot free; however if it will ever come to a trial, the person won't get a long sentence...
Well, to conclude quicker ~ we find ourselves living in a world, where human life means nothing. One wrong glance at the wrong time in the wrong place and you can die, literally. It depends from country to country on how likely it's to occur.
And what will people do? Ideally, this probably won't raise more than indignation and disapproval of the citizens. As always.
he was told by the police to leave the kid alone & go home, they have him on tape muttering about "damn coons" he ignores the police and as a result another black boy lays murdered while his killer walks free.
^Then the only option for the parents to have any chance of seeing some justice getting served, is by filling a civil lawsuit against the "self proclaimed neighbourhood watchman".
thats beyond horrific ^ but are you serious?, the whole thing of white people saying "I'm not racist but its all about the blacks these days" is sickening. Its not a competition for the worst crime that got the least press ffs
