If FL had the same gun laws as GA, GZ would have never been allowed to carry concealed* and the outcome of their "meeting" would have been drastically different. GZ might have been more hesitant in following TM.
* If you have any record of DV, even if it was not physical and 30 years ago, you cannot get a permit to carry concealed in the state of GA.
Well only if a person has been found guilty of Domestic Violence or domestice Assault that the person could never own a firearm or ammunition. In addition, if you are served with a active protective order, you can not own or be in possession of any firearms.
Sebekm- "and not make it out to be something that it's not"-"who would probably not have a son who looked like Zimmerman"..your comments are insensitive and lack empathy for a young man that lost his life..he wasn't armed nor did he have a weapon. Until people accept their role in racism and accept that black males are treated different-we will never move forward. Until you walk in another mans shoes be careful what you say. No one knows who was on top..the witness back-tracked and said he wasn't 100% sure and he stated that it's possible Zimmerman could have been on top. If Travon was on top he had a right to defend himself..this man followed him, picked a fight than shot his way out when he was losing...It was wrong.
Yes people see what they want to see. You see what you want to see, and I see what I want too see as well since you out it that way. While people see what Trayvon Martin was doing or sauing what Trayvon Martin should have done, I see a young teenager minding his own business doing avsolutely nothing wrong, when he was profiled by George Zimmerman, shot and killed. I see a George Zimmerman that has gotten by. Oh but I promise you that George Zimmerman wont get away with this. I am willing to bet that Geirge Zummerman is in a worst position than he was before his acquittal. He is a free man according to trial. But is he really free? That's what I see.
"The FBI said he did NOT profile, and their investigation revealed no racial bias (from interviews with people who knew him) on his part."
The FBI are investigators, not prosecuting attorneys. The DOJ does the indicting and prosecuting.
I don't have any confidence in the civil either at this point. I have seen enough as far as these jurors. Do they really take their oath seriously? Or do they have their very own hidden agenda? What about Juror B-37? She wasted no time in attempt to sigh a book deal. The things she stated I fine very disappointing. But congratulations, she set Sanford Florida one hundred years as far as racial harmony goes and relations. Or was there ever racial harmony there. What I can see at this point is that what ever positive movement they had in racial harmony, it has been erased with this acquittal. My girlfriend lives in Orlando, Florida and she told me this morning that the racial tension is so thick, that one is afraid to say anything out of fear of starting a race war down there. Community Activist, Powerful Political figures are already down there have huge rallies.
But you know Sebe,
I don't think he will be charge after listening to all of the disheartening opinions from Legal Experts. I hope that he does. Oh how I wish that that he does get charge federally, and found guilty. Because of all of this, just know where the racial harmony stands now among the American People. This is not just about Sanford Florida, but it rings out around the nation.
