The U.S. judicial system really works! George Zimmerman was found not guilty…but not found innocent. All I can say is that George Zimmerman is guilty of making the bad choice to approach Trayvon Martin. The DA is guilty of filling charges against an innocent man. I don’t want to repeat what I’ve heard about Trayvon Martin that would make George Zimmerman’s prejudgment of him seem right.
To own guns is a right, but I wouldn’t let a neighborhood watchman carry one if I could have anything to say about it. I would arm the watchman with a pepper spray for their protection. Pepper spray is legal in all 50 states and more reliable than a stun gun, but I would still recommend that everyone has some self-defense training.
I was watching reports about the shooting in Florida, where a young black man was killed by a night watchman. As I understand the question is; did the watchman use excessive force?
There are laws in Florida that state; you will not be prosecuted for assault if you feel the need to defend yourself. I thought that was the law everywhere, but I guess in some places if you are being attacked, you need to call the police to stop the attacker???
In Florida, the watchman was attacked and could not subdue the attacker without his gun, and ended up killing the attacker. What DA would conceive to prosecute the watchman, unless they could prove that he didn’t need to use such force?
If I were to use a gun and claimed that, I used it in self-defense. At first the police would believe it, but they wouldn’t need to…
