If you exercise poor judgment with a deadly weapon
Zimmy's choices concerning that weapon were fine, admirable
and in keeping with Original American Constitutionalism, as set forth in the Bill of Rights.
that results in the death of another human being -- and yes the fact
that he was not yet an adult does matter,
That assertion is irrational
in that Zimmy 's only concern was ending that attack,
so as to defend his own well being, not
to protect the assailant,
whose age was irrelevant
to Zimmy 's survival intact
Think about it.
There is HUMOR
in that notion:
If an adult is beating u to death, inflicting any unknown injuries,
then its OK to defensively kill him, but if
u r being gradually slaughtered by a juvenile
then u need to let him DO
it; don 't hurt him too much.
Its hard to believe that anyone can proffer such ideas, except in jest
Presumably, Zimmy was duty-bound to demand of Mr. T
that he show his driver 's license for an age check,
while he was beating Zimmy 's head on the street.

U are confusing different concepts here.
then you are most definitely responsible for that person's death.
No. That death was perfectly justified
and the rest of us r all the safer for it.
At the moment there is still no evidence that Trayvon hit him more than once,
and as far as I can tell from the reports Zimmerman isn't claiming he was hit more than once.
That is false
ABC News has published a report
of Zimmy telling nabors that his head was being slammed on the street.
Black eyes are a symptom of a broken nose, not an indication that he was hit in each eye, Three Stooges style. The current news report doesn't tell us anything we didn't already know and it doesn't excuse the killing of a young man who was otherwise minding his business.
than slamming Zimmy 's brain on the street; reminiscent of the joke:
than that, how did u enjoy the play, Mrs. Lincoln ? "
