There are things that are legal but still morally wrong.
Absolutely! I just don't find it morally objectionable to refuse to ask for the state to provide for my safety. If you walk around my home, you better take heed.
A public area is a public area, if i have nothing better to do then that's my business. It doesn't harm you or steal from you. If Zimmerman had followed Martin onto Martin's property this would be an entirely different case. I'm an anti-federalist btw.
I cannot fathom a 16 yr old with no weapon doing enough harm to someone who is bigger and has a weapon which could have been used in a number of non-deadly ways.
Ok, no offense, but this is just a completely ignorant statement. He was 17 and taller than Zimmerman for one. The evidence shows Martin was on top of Zimmerman and beating him.
Secondly, what does zimmerman having a gun have to do with anything at all? (maybe you'll be the first person out of 12 that will actually answer me)
Thirdly, if you are shooting to wound, you shouldn't be carrying a gun. This isn't the movies. You can and will harm innocent people and you are endangering yourself and others. Not to mention you will be arrested and jailed for shooting to wound.
Let's face it - they were both idiots and media has used this opportunity to distract and divide us.
Zimmerman's only an idiot so far in as he put himself in danger by pursuing Martin away from his property. Martin's an idiot for violating the natural rights of another person, and he paid the price with his life. Something every single person should expect when you decide to harm another person.
