Things we can all agree on:
Zimmerman as less than brilliant judgement in avoiding conflict.
He doesn't listen well when told that his following "mommy's little angel" wasn't a great idea.
Monday morning quarterbacking is easy. Would anyone have thought, in that situation, that anything deadly would have occurred?
Can we now agree:
Once in the position of having his ass handed to him and his head bashed on the sidewalk, he was not required to pay for his lack of judgement with his life?
No one made this kid attack him. Zimmerman may have been an obnoxious, self important busybody (I don't know, though I suspect that neighborhood watch can bring those types out in the open). Is the penalty for that a beat down?
Now that more info has been released, can we all agree that Zimmerman didn't shoot Martin because he's a bloodthirsty bastard.
If Zimmerman had not been armed, what would the headline have been? Would anyone be as upset over the hospitalization or death of some unnamed guy at the hands of a 17 yo wannabe gangsta?
