I have a friend who was involved in a shooting were he went after a thief. When he caught up with the thug, he attempted to run my friend down with a car. Fearing for his life he shot the thief dead. No wrong-doing was found in the shooting. The police stated that my friend DID have a right to confront a burglar or stop a crime and doing so did not mean that deadly force was premeditated. He did not provoke the man to attempt to use force against him first and this was affirmed by a witness. To think that people are supposed to just sit back and be victims is as wrong as using deadly force when not justified. Attempting to uphold property rights is not a crime.
Let’s just say that in the Florida case, this kid was just passing through. We have been told that the people in this neighborhood live in a gated community; it was not a public street. Therefore, any resident had the right to investigate the presence of an intruder. Perhaps if given the chance Zimmerman would have simply asked him to leave the neighborhood. Still, a bigger picture has come out in this case. The liberal media was quick to make this a white hate crime against an innocent kid. Sorry, we now know the shooter was Hispanic and the kid was not so little and innocent. Does this mean the kid was guilty of a crime other than trespassing (so far as we know), no? It is funny how the race-baiters have started to shut up now that more facts are coming out (the mega-millions lottery draw got more air time than they did last night).
If you want to know what I found appalling in this case is, who saw Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and the Black Panthers raise hell when this happened around the same time.
Infant killed in drive-by shooting on Detroit's west side
DETROIT -- A baby was killed this morning in Detroit, in what police are calling a possible drive-by shooting. Detroit police say the infant was rushed to the hospital where it was pronounced dead.
Police say shots were fired into a west side Detroit home around 4 30 this morning. Shell casings were found in the street outside the home and police say the shots could have been fired from a moving car. A witness did report seeing a car speeding away after the shooting.
No arrests have been made and no further details are available at this time.http://www.northwestohio.com/news/story.aspx?id=721566
Where are the racist media outlets and the reverends with no parishes protesting that no arrest has been made here? Why do they seek to destroy the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King? Equality for all, not some and not just those who share the same skin color. See the Detroit case is believed to be a "black on black" crime, so I guess justice does not count. These people do not care about justice or the family of this teenager; they only care about the publicity so they can make a profit off of keeping racism alive and well. That my friends will prove to be the real injustice in this case.
