Prosecute the killer of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin

I am very sad a 17 year old's life was senselessly taken. Trayvon was only a kid.
And the killer is still free. Zimmerman should be brought to justice.

"The man who shot and killed an unarmed Florida teenager in a case that has sparked widespread public outrage told police the victim had punched him, knocked him down and slammed his head into the pavement repeatedly before he fired the fatal gunshot.

The account of neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, was published for the first time on Monday in the online edition of the Orlando Sentinel.

"The information in the article is consistent with the information provided to the State Attorney's office by the police department," the police said in a statement."

end of a friendship?

Russell Simmons, who called Rivera his longtime friend, promptly ripped the apology.
"Geraldo, your apology is bull----!" Simmons wrote on GlobalGrind.com. "Your apology is nothing but a defense of a racist, backward thing you already said. And I am a yogi, and I generally don't speak like this, but I have to say it like it is. It is a non-apology apology that continues to blame the victim for their appearance."

Moderator Note


Everyone:

I know this is posted in OT, but since this is an extremely sensitive subject I want to make sure everyone treads VERY LIGHTLY and keeps the discussion absolutely civil.

Otherwise the thread will be closed.




Thanks,

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

While no one likes to see confrontations end as this one did I am sick of people rushing to judgement and condemning people.
We don't even know all the facts, all we have is the media spinning headlines and going off half-cocked.

All of this is worsened by idiots like Sharpton and Jackson and the black panthers with them trying to incite a race war or something.
Don't get me started on those clowns.

Anyway I think we should remain neutral and let the courts decide.

thx @GridKing for info


I haven't kept up with this story, but too many people make assumptions and jump to conclusions before the facts are known I knew that if he (shooter) wasn't in custody by now, he had merit behind his actions. Age is irrelevant if bodily harm is being committed knowingly and life is threaten then self defense is only option. Unfortunate situation that many should learn by.

here is the facts, 1 guy had a gun the other didn't, if worse comes to worse flashing a gun would be more than enough. The argument 'he went for my gun' do not hold water at all.

Not taking sides just posting some info on the law , I don't know the facts of what exactly happened


Florida
2011 Florida Statutes CHAPTER 776 JUSTIFIABLE USE OF FORCE[18]
776.012 Use of force in defense of person.—A person is justified in using force, except deadly force, against another when and to the extent that the person reasonably believes that such conduct is necessary to defend himself or herself or another against the other’s imminent use of unlawful force. However, a person is justified in the use of deadly force and does not have a duty to retreat if:
(1) He or she reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself or another or to prevent the imminent commission of a forcible felony; or
(2) Under those circumstances permitted pursuant to s. 776.013.

Stand-your-ground law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


on a side note and not to this specifically "kids" are not as harmless as they once were, they are being recruited, and comitting the same if not more violent crimes than adults these days , just something to think about

a friend of mine was killed delivering a pizza by a 14 year old, they changed the laws in California to charge him as an adult http://www.facebook.com/TKFSanDiegofanpage


so an innocent kid on the corner eating skittles , may not hold water either, I'll wait for the facts ... jmo


Considering that Gun maker stops taking orders, cites soaring demand

http://www.examiner.com/women-and-guns-in-san-antonio/gun-maker-stops-taking-orders-cite-soaring-demand we will be seeing a lot more of this.

If the shooter would have been smart he would have thrown a knife on the dude and then it becomes self defense from someone intending to do great bodily harm or worse. Now that kid can never grow up to be a cell block rapist. I'm sure Bubba and Tyrone up at the penitentiary are anticipating George's arriving so they can loosen him up. This crap happens everyday some where in America.
Perhaps they can trade metals and take delivery up at the penn and make themselves some files.
