Am I the only one on DP that thinks Zimmerman was guilty?Submitted by Peggy R on Sun, 07/14/2013 - 10:00
You know I think back to when this whole Trevon Martin shooting broke. People were outraged that Zimmerman was not charged. I mean whites and blacks alike.
Then something changed. Somehow this became a race issue.
Who was really standing their ground that night. Zimmerman who had a gun, or Trevon Martin.
A seventeen year old is dead. What did he do? How did Zimmerman end up in a physical fight with Trevon Martin? Martin wasn't looking for trouble, he hadn't robbed anyone. This kid who was walking along eating skittles blapping on his cell phone just decided he was going to beat Zimmerman to death.
No one will ever convince me that Trevon Martin instigated a fight that night. Zimmerman was a tough guy with a gun, and an vigilante mind set.
Zimmerman was looking for trouble that night and he found it, he just didn't expect that Martin was going to turn the tables on him.
How the hell did this issue get turned around?
No one knows what really happened that night. I do know that Trevon was on that property legally and unarmed, and I do know Zimmerman was told NOT to follow him.
I think he obviously ignored that advice, followed Martin and attempted to detain him and it got physical.
Martin got the better of him Zimmerman shot him.
Just think for minute how this would have turned out if Zimmerman had not pursued Martin. Martin would have made it to his destination and none of this would have happened, or what id Zimmerman was not armed? He would have gotten the shit kicked out of him and learned a dam good lesson and Trevon Martin would still be alive.
Now have fun down voting me but before you do think about the original facts and how this whole tragedy began.
