    I'm assuming too that the "creepy fucker" didn't want Martin to "get away." And it was because "they always get away" or something, right?

    What would you do if some "creepy fucker" approached you on a rainy night and didn't want you to get away?

    Probably some interpersonal form of the Bush Doctrine. Provided my internal Colin Powell presented the right evidence to my internal UN.

    Wasn't it "creepy-ass cracker?"

    Whatever. The operative word is creepy. Creepy can set people off during a confrontation.

    Now I'm wondering if Zimmerman went up to Martin and kindly asked him, "Excuse me, sir, but may I ask where you're going? You see, I'm the coordinator of the Neighbourhood Watch here, and I'm just checking on you."

    I mean, if he did, maybe Martin would have said, "Oh, I'm staying in the area. I'm just heading back with some delicious Skittles here."

    "Oh, nice. I like Skittles too."

    And that could have been that.

    I can laugh about, literally, anything. But it never detracts from the fact that a person is dead/dying/suffering for stupid reasons. In this case, somebody's kid. If I were this kid's mom, which, of course, I would never be, I would never stop fighting.

    Hmm. Zimmerman sees black teenager walking with candy, follows him, eventually kills him. Fast forward. Zimmerman sees white family in overturned SUV, helps them out of their car. Uh. Nope. Still a shitbag. Maybe he's not completely fucking evil. But who really thinks anyone is completely fucking evil?

    I guess you're right. If it was a black family in that SUV, GZ might have shot them all. :)

    Would he have helped a car full of black teenagers, or would he have done nothing but relish the fact that these assholes were not, in fact, getting away?

    The psychological disorder that convinces him he's merely an acceptance letter away from being a law enforcement officer is not likely to diminish despite what he's been through. If anything, his image of himself in this role has been supported by the verdict he received. Officer G. Zimmerman is back on patrol.

    Glory chasers are often confused with true heroes.

    And how much involvement did he actually have in this daring rescue? The family has been identified but aren't speaking about the incident. When asked if George Zimmerman was being called a hero, Sanford sheriff spokeswoman Kim Cannaday said " We're not going that far."

    Okay, so he didn't see the accident which occurred just under a mile from where he lives. Nothing's been revealed about whether or not he happened to be driving by or drove there from his hidey hole at home. If it wasn't a fortuitous event, how did he know it had happened? Police scanner maybe? He hears there's been an accident off the highway and he feels the need to hump out to the scene? To play hero? He would have known others would most likely stop to help and police were on the way. But once again, George had to insinuate himself into a hero-making situation. The last time that happened, someone got killed.

    Yeah, I'm cynical and jaded but I also see right through this guy.

    Unpossible. He's like 3 feet thick. A goddamn MRI can't see through him.

    Nah. I hear he's not back to carrying yet, though there's nothing preventing him from doing so. A fact his lawyers are very concerned about. They don't want GZ shot and killed until they can milk this thing to its bitter end.

    You know ... I like the fact that you argue your points so vehemently you'll refuse to accept that sometimes there are other factors that don't completely render a situation black or white ...

    I honestly believe GZ isn't as bad as you make it out to be. Trayvon didn't deserve to die, but the entire situation was blown out of whack by the media. GZ is a fucking moron, but not a murdering moron.

    I'm pretty sure a careful reading of the passage of mine that you quoted will reveal the words of someone who doesn't believe the situation is black and whitey.
