  • It really doesn't matter what the laws are.

    As long as you are white, then you are the racist.

    Maybe you should go back and "Politically Correct" your poll.

  • Stupid poll.
    Most people don't know what the law is much less whether or not it 'goes to (sic) far'
    The law states that you can defend yourself with deadly force anywhere you are legally, without a duty to retreat.
    That's not TOO far.

  • If you are confronted by a 6'5" 225# outraged black man you may not have a second chance to "stand your ground". Better get it out and use it or you may beaten to death.
    As far as Zimmerman goes, I don't know the whole story and neither does anyone else commenting on this or any other website.
    I do know that if you say one untoward word to any young black male you had better be prepared to defend yourself. I believe Zimmerman said something to Martin and Martin immediately coppe More..

      Lets say he did.

      Its not proportionate to bring out a gun to a fist fight.

      Not that you share that opinion apparently.

      Who says it's a fistfight? Protecting your neighborhood with a gun makes it an armed confrontation.

      And it's a fatal mistake to bring only your fists to a gunfight.

      "it's a fatal mistake to bring only your fists to a gunfight"

      Make sure to tell that to any visitors that come to where you live. Cos if they get confronted on the way to your house and a fight breaks out... they gonna die.

    • @hobblywobbly WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU PEOPLE GETTING THIS 6'5" 225 pound bullshit?

      The kid weighed 140 pounds, about 50 pounds less than Zimmerman. His nickname was slim on his football team. The guy was following him and then came up and invaded his personal space in the middle of the night. I'd assume someone who was following me late at night and then came up, invaded my personal space and said what are you doing here meant me harm too.

      There's a reason 911 and and the neighborhood watc More..

  • it just seems a green light to shoot first and pretend you thought he was going to shoot you after.

    • @weadone You overestimate the ease with which a law-abiding citizen will kill someone.

      People usually deduce the actions of others by reflecting on their own thought process.

      You appear to be a murderer awaiting the opportunity. Scary.

    • @Shady-Cadence hmmm my comment was on the story i never said anyone was a murderer. but using your logic and obvious psycho mentality you must be one. as people usually deduce the actions OF OTHERS by reflecting their own thought process or some pish similar.
      and yes i am, the worlds just lucky all the voices in my head are singing the smurf song.

  • If a stranger starts beating the shit out of me, it's not going to be a fair fight. I'll end it by any means, as quickly as possible, and I won't lose any sleep over it.

    • @Fred Flintstone What if a stranger is following you in the middle of the night and then comes up and invades your personal space? Would you hit him? Would you think you need to defend yourself? Can that guy shoot you then?

      Seriously do you people even know how to think?

    • @BigDaddyHarrison Well, first off, I wouldn't be trespassing in a gated neighborhood, and damned sure not in the "middle of the night".

      Secondly, it's a HUGE assumption on your part to assume Zimmerman invaded Martin's personal space. I'm pretty sure that if Zimmerman's intent was to do so, he'd already had the drop on Martin with his weapon at the ready - SINCE HE WAS ARMED. I don't think he'd have allowed Martin to pounce on him without shooting him, first.

      Seriously, are you More..

      Huge assumption? Wtf are you talking about. What part of "don't follow him" don't you understand?

      I've done the neighborhood watch for 20 years and had many arrested, never confronted 1 of them.
