If you kill in self defense, “protecting you life, loved ones or your property”, should you go to jail to be killed?
Accusations of injustice and miscarriage of justice fly around black and minority communities because George Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges after his trial, by jury, in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. It is a terrible shame, a 17 year old boy, and I do mean BOY, died in an altercation with a 29 year old man. But, the facts, as presented in court, supported and convinced the jury, Zimmerman did act to defend himself from further injury.
Who taught a 17 year old boy he was man enough to attack a fully grown man?
Why was he not taught, “actions have consequences”?
These lessions should have been taught Trayvon by his father, mother and community. But, Trayvon is taught to attack and beat a man for wanting to know why he was in his community. A fight ensues and the final result, Trevon is shot to death while beating a man armed with a gun.
Point of education; “If you are going to beat someone, you do not know, make sure they are unarmed.” This is police and government logic. If they are unarmed, and you are kicking the crap out of them, you would prefer not to get shot in the process. An attacker catching a bullet indicates the attacker was strong enough to attack but, not smart enough to think things through before attacking.
If Trayvon Martin had been raised to be a responsible adult male, he may not have attacked an adult male community watch captain, carrying a gun. Thus, he would most likely, still be alive today. So to be angry because George Zimmerman did not go to jail for shooting Trayvon is a sure sign irresponsible not thinking, is alive and well.
Yet, thousands of people around the country protested Zimmermans not being found guilty, but answer this question; If you kill in self defense, protecting you life or a loved ones, should you go to jail to be killed? That is the real question. However, reactions to a verdict of not guilty prove different.
[The Times also quoted an LAPD spokesman who said that at least one arrest was made after rocks and D-cell batteries were thrown at officers at the corner of Washington Boulevard and 10th Avenue. Police also fired non-lethal rounds at the demonstrators. No injuries were immediately reported.
The city's mayor, Eric Garcetti, took to Twitter to ask city residents to "Exercise [the] 1st Amendment and practice peace in City of Angels tonight."]
A 17 year old boy,teenager, died while beating an adult male. He got himself shot to death. Where is the mature instruction.
[“At a march and rally in downtown Chicago attended by about 200 people, some said the verdict was symbolic of lingering racism in the United States. Seventy-three-year-old Maya Miller said the case reminded her of the 1955 slaying of Emmitt Till, a 14-year-old from Chicago who was murdered by a group of white men while visiting Mississippi. Till's killing galvanized the civil rights movement.
"Fifty-eight years and nothing's changed," Miller said, pausing to join a chant for "Justice for Trayvon, not one more."
In Philadelphia, about 700 protesters marched from LOVE Park to the Liberty Bell, alternating between chanting Trayvon Martin's name and "No justice, no peace!"
At a youth service in Sanford, Fla., where the trial was held, teens wearing shirts displaying Martin's picture wiped away tears during a sermon at the St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church.”]

Families can raise their boys to be intelligent men or they can watch them die in the street like dogs. The facts are simple, the courts and jury did their jobs as designed. Zimmerman's gun functioned as designed and this was at the expense of Trayvon Martins life. Trayvon Martin acted as designed by his parents and community. Now he is dead and Zimmerman walks a free man, as designed. The fault rest with the Martin family for failure to teach a boy to be a respectable and productive man and instruct him in True Christian Principles.
