The System Almost Worked with Trayvon Martin

George Zimmerman most of all in life wanted to be a cop, but the system worked so he never got to be one. Then he wanted to be a security guard, but the system worked and he was fired and wasn't hired elsewhere before he might have killed someone. Next he wanted to be a town watch captain, but the town watch system wasn't strong enough to tell him “No” before he killed someone.

Because we get distracted by the Right-Left-Divide we don’t realize how many actually agree that O. J. Simpson used the justice system to get away with murder, and Jared Lee Loughner who shot, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, should not have had access to a gun. With Zimmerman a few, I think, have gone too far in their arguments. Talking about how he and his relatives are living in fear and being harassed. Most hold-up artists and muggers never plan to shot anyone unless their life depends on it. Shooting the store clerk before the owner shoots the mugger. Many of the mugger's relatives also live in fear, similar to Zimmerman's. Gang shootouts don’t intend to kill bystanders, they are to in fear of their lives to aim carefully. Zimmerman managed to finagle a legal right to harass and intimidate people. If he also harassed the white residents they would have found the power for Town Watch to fire him.

Please associate Zimmerman with the other rogue officials who do wrong.

We are concerned about a recent drift towards vitriol in the RSN Reader comments section. There is a fine line between moderation and censorship. No one likes a harsh or confrontational forum atmosphere. At the same time everyone wants to be able to express themselves freely. We'll start by encouraging good judgment. If that doesn't work we'll have to ramp up the moderation.

General guidelines: Avoid personal attacks on other forum members; Avoid remarks that are ethnically derogatory; Do not advocate violence, or any illegal activity.

Remember that making the world better begins with responsible action.

I am suddenly very upset about not speaking out on O J Simpson framed for armed theft, and the person with the gun not even charged. Loosing ones clothes was not before part of a civil suit. And evidence wasn't stated that O J Simpson even knew a gun would be used during the robbery. We keep getting fed the end result (putting someone in jail who deserves to be is what counts).

I think thoughtful bloggers don’t automatically use the “+” and “–“key”, unless a “+” to represent overwhelming praise.



If one is thoughtful but thinks this the verdict should stand, question where was the mud that certain Zimmerman idealizes claim. Point out if was wrong for him not to mention town-watch when Trayvon twice asked why were you following me? And that Trayvon feared what looked like a hoodlum finding out where he lived.

An armed killer, loser pleading self defense after shooting and killing someone who was unarmed, stalked and confronted near his home, whom everyone agrees was doing "nothing wrong" makes a mockery of our system of justice and fairness even without the not-guilty verdict. What the hell is going on in the deep south?
