My probably unpopular thoughts about the Zimmerman case... *edited*
I don't believe this was a racially motivated crime at all
For those of you saying he deserves to get killed if he is not convicted.. you do realize you are condoning what he did to trayvon by being ok with it being done to him?
For those fighting over the fact that GZ didn't have life threatening wounds so his life wasn't in danger during the fight and he shouldn't have used deadly force.
If a man came up a punched you while you carried a gun what would you do? I'm not debating about how if GZ hadn't followed TM, TM wouldn't have attacked GZ. This is a what if scenario.
I can tell you right now, I would use my gun. I would try to make it a flesh would so I could just stop the attacker, but in a fight you're not really in a position to take aim and calmly fire. You point and hope you hit something. If this had been a woman, no one would think twice about her pulling out a gun and shooting even if her self defense injuries were minor
