George Zimmerman is a cold blooded killer, no bogus law can change that.

                 I personally do not understand how a grown man can kill a teenager and walk around free and clear. I did not think you could kill someone in cold blood and have a law defend you. I understand that a defense attorney’s job to defend them, but for anyone else to see it like that is ridiculous.

Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law is basically a license to kill. If you feel threatened you can kill them, as long as you feel threatened. Texas’ version if Stand Your Ground Law is just as insane. You are authorized to use deadly force to recover stolen property at night or if an attempted burgalary happens at night. Both laws were model bills from ALEC, which has a strange bedfellow in the NRA. This is the law that may allow a grown man to kill a teenager and get away with it.

The facts of the case are simple. Trayvon Martin, 17, was walking home wearing a hoody, carrying a bag of skittles and an Iced Tea. George Zimmerman saw him, called 911, who told Zimmerman not to follow him, which Zimmerman did anyway. He followed him, caused an altercation and killed him during the struggle. Those are the important facts, nothing else matters in this case.

Defense Attorney Don Nelson cross examined Rachel Jeantel, trying to establish her as a liar. This was in hopes of getting her testimony thrown out. But the facts are simple and so should be the outcome. I am afraid to say that if Zimmerman gets away with this there are going to be riots. If he gets away with this, it allows people to kill at will. Zimmerman needs to be found guilty to keep America American.

The opening stages of the George Zimmerman trial started today.

                 17 year old Trayvon Martin was walking down the street with a pack of skittles and an iced tea; when George Zimmerman decided he was dangerous. Something clicked in Zimmerman’s head saying Martin was dangerou. Zimmerman called 911, which told him not to follow, Zimmerman ignored them. He followed anyway, a conflict followed. In the end Trayvon Martin lie on the ground dead from Zimmerman shooting him.

The question here us not whether Zimmerman is guilty of shooting Martin, that has already been established. The question is whether it was in self-defense or not. Under the Florida Stand Your Ground Law, several other states have adopted similar laws, Texas was in the news for it most recently, you do not have to retreat if you are threatened. It authorizes you to use deadly force if you feel you are threatened. This was an ALEC model bill that has had a negative effect on society.

Unfortunately the focus of this case will be on a bogus law passed by Republicans, with tremendous support from ALEC. The focus of the case should be on the fact that a grown man followed a child, instigated an altercation with a minor and then killed the minor during the struggle. These are the unmitigated facts of the case. A grown man killed a child, how does some bogus law make that ok. Is this the kind of country we want to live in? The Judiciary System has been removed by a man known to be touched in his head.

The implications of this case are far reaching. If Zimmerman is found innocent, people have been given the ok to kill basically at will. I can shoot my neighbor because we exchanged cross words, as long as I felt threatened. If Zimmerman is found guilty, well that is a victory against big business, the Republican party and deals a major blow to the laws ALEC and the NRA are trying to push. I want to know how these laws slipped past Democrat lawmakers. Lobbyist and Republicans are trying to turn this into a free for all to please the gun nuts. How about pleasing the majority of Americans, we don’t want these laws.
