If you carry a weapon you should have a higher burden of caution.
Maybe someone will shoot this scary bastard and also get a pass.
And gun owners dont want to be held to any laws, they just want to kill something.
It's a crazy thing that this guy, who committed homicide,
wasn't arrested and charged with a crime. Just insane.
Bunch of Floridiots down there
for what it's worth, dave, you come across as itching to shoot someone
who is intruding on you...
I mean at least arrest him and let a judge or jury decide if it was self defense,
as they did with the first guy, who actually was defending himself
but still had to sit in jail for 3 years while they figured it out.
Ill leave that up to the gun nuts like you.
After all guns dont kill people, people kill people. What a crock!
Yeah, I'm no lawyer, but the idea that you can shoot an unarmed person
because you're not required to avoid the situation just seems
counter to common American notions of justice. If you carry a
weapon you should have a higher burden of caution.
“The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida, and the FBI opened an investigation into the facts and circumstances of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. The department will conduct a thorough and independent review of all of the evidence and take appropriate action at the conclusion of the investigation. The department also is providing assistance to and cooperating with the state officials in their investigation into the incident. With all federal civil rights crimes, the government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a person acted intentionally and with the specific intent to do something which the law forbids – the highest level of intent in criminal law. Negligence, recklessness, mistakes and accidents are not prosecutable under the federal criminal civil rights laws. The Community Relations Service will be in Sanford, Fla., this week to meet with civil rights leaders, community leaders, and local law enforcement to address tension in the community.”
