“Actually it is. A gated community. He had every right as a concerned neighbor to ask. Especially since there has been a rise in crime, which also coincides with martins appearence in the area”

“"Actually it is."
NO! You most certainly DO NOT enter a situation like that in a confrontational manner- especially when the person you're confronting is not actually engaged in an illegal activity! This is exactly why George is in the predicament he's in. He went into a situation he had NO business being in half-cocked and all Crazy and someone needlessly lost their life as a result. Bottom line: If you want to be /treated/ respectfully then you need to /behave/ in a respectful manner.”

“No, that's not acceptable. You have to show that you are an official of some kind. I don't even pull over in the dark if I see flashing lights behind me. I wait until I get some where public and safe with lights and people around.
GZ was being aggressive based on the knowledge that "he belonged" and an assumption that TM "did not belong". And that was his mistake.
If he assumed that TM belonged and officially identified himself as Neighborhood Watch, this might not have happened. Actually if he'd followed NW guidelines, it wouldn't have happened because he would have stayed in his car.”

“zimmerman did nothing right in this encounter. he clearly didn't know enough to be carring a gun. no training in threat assesment, and wasn't a memeber of any watch. he was way over his head, and a young man is dead because of it. he will, and deserves to, go to jail. hopefully for life.”

“Again ... do the right thing ... announce who you "think" you are ... what your supposed authority is!!”
“Lead in gas and oil. Run our own electrical grid. Sell energy to other states. Texas has enough resources to run on its own. Have you even changed out of your pajamas this week? Exactly. Go enjoy another donut before catching up on daytime talk shows”
“If you don't support my marriage, I will not support yours. Gays spend so much time bashing those that can get married, makes me not care about their cause.”

“"Us gays" as a whole do not bash straight marriage. I am a wedding photographer who happens to be gay. I love photographing straight marriages and find it absolutely heart warming that anyone would love another so much, they would want to marry. You were just unfortunate enough to run into some rude gays. I'm sorry for that.”

“I'm not aware that we, as a whole, bash straight marriage. We, on the other hand, are subjected to a barrage of attacks on this issue. Don't equate the two.”
“I feel so bad for that child. I can see my son picking up things and asking what they are, he's also 4. I taught my son to NEVER pick up a gun. Even a toy gun, unless I hand it to him and tell him to play.”

“And of course four year olds ALWAYS do what you tell them too, right?”
