Trayvon Martin Killed by George Zimmerman
By no way in any shape or form was justice served in this awful incident. Zimmerman free of charge and protective service? If he was truly innocent then he would not have to do that. So while Trayvon Martin is gone forever George gets to continue his life while being completely protected. We as a society I believe we have gotten away from serving was is true justice to this country. We are more worried about what the political effects will be of the outcome. Well in my opinion if Zimmerman was found guilty and sentenced 25 to life I can promise you there would not be and controversy over the courts decision.
Coming from the state of Florida I understand that we are protected by may self defense laws that state in similar words that if we feel threatened then we are allowed to attack pleading self defense. Well lets look back at the case. George Zimmerman called 911 reporting of a suspicious man. While this phone call was made young Trayvon Martin was on the phone with his girlfriend and she testified that while they were on the phone Trayvon said to her that he was being followed. In my opinion if I am being followed then I am feeling threaten therefore Trayvon even though had smashed Zimmerman’s head against the ground was just protecting himself out of feeling threatened. While Zimmerman was on the phone with 911 the operator asked if he was following the suspicious person he was reporting and on record the operator stated to Zimmerman that following the suspicious target was unnecessary. So George Zimmerman was completely in the wrong not only shooting Trayvon but for going against the operators orders. I mean come on everyone its a gated community and Geaorge Zimmerman is just a neighborhood watchman. Trayvon Martin was not picking a fight with George until he had felt threatened and that is when the fight broke out. So here we have on both sides a case of self defense. George Zimmerman simply instigated a problem with Trayvon Martin and Trayvon Martin reacted in self defense feeling threatened.
