I agree, but that doesn't always stop it.    The pressure will be huge.

~sign~ none of this would have happened if Georgie boy had just waited for the cops.  It's that simple.

From what I understand, George did exactly what he should have done.  Follow a suspicious character without engaging.

but he was walking home. his gf home.

there was no reasons for GZ to call cops, TM didn't do anything illegal. what would he tell cops?? there is a guy walking that i never seen before???? so

i'm pretty sure GZ walked up to  him, asked what he was doing  here, (he could, he was a watch capitan) and TM pbly told him F off none of your buissnes.... and the fight began.

too bad TM didn't know GZ had a gun, may be he would not try to attack.

RESIDENT TROLL.

There had been a rash of recent robberies by young black men.   Trayvon was a stranger to the neighborhood and fit the description.   I think George did the responsible thing by following him.  If my neck of the woods had been being robbed by an old white guy, and I seen an unfamiliar old white guy walking buy my house, you bet I'd keep an eye on him.  And I'm not neighborhood watch.  Then when Trayvon went between some houses, George called the cops.   Seems the right thing to do.

He did the right thing by calling the cops...he should have let the cops handle it.  They were on the way, it's their job.  If Trayvon had a hostage and was threatening someone with violence, it would be different.  

In this situation George made a choice,  he chose to take matters into his own hands which culminated in the death of a whether human being.

This is one of those situations where, we, as opinionated spectators, will NEVER AGREE with each other.
  This kind of argument causes us to harbor bad feelings toward each other and it's unfortunate.

The rush to judgment, the presumption of guilt on display here going all the way back in March of 2012 is pretty amazing in hindsight.   Killing someone in self defense just isn't a realistic probability for some people I guess.

Yep, it's murder.

Nice judgement call on all the people here who oppose your opinion... like I said, it's unfortunate.

Just imagine the rancor this trial will stir in the public at large all over the country.  The media whores will actually fan the flames so that they can cover the resulting violence.  This thing has the potential to cost lives if the media mishandles it.

And the media will mishandle it just like they have so far.   Remember the early reports saying that a white man killed a innocent little black kid?
Now we know it was a hispanic who killed a 17 year old black guy who has a history of illegal activities.

Does a history of illegal activities justify his death?

I think they should throw the case out based on no fair trial being possible because of extreme prejudice stirred up by the media...then maybe that would teach the media just to report the news instead of being "shapers of opinion" (in other words, propagandists). Maybe that would teach them a lesson, but I doubt it (the media, I mean).

Nice!  :clap:

The media has already judged the case in that they won't print the photographs of Trayvon at the age he was then.

One's reality is another's nightmare.
