Apparently, the shooter in the now infamous Florida case says he was attacked, and was being beaten at the time of the shooting:

www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/26/us-us...

Exerpt:


"...But in own his version of events, as outlined in the Sentinel report, Zimmerman had given up the chase and was walking back to his sport utility vehicle when Martin approached him from behind.


The two exchanged words before Martin punched the burly Zimmerman in the nose, sending him reeling to the ground. The teenager then began pummeling him and slammed his head into the sidewalk several times, the newspaper said.


At least one witness told police he saw Martin on top of Zimmerman who was calling for help, the newspaper said. It noted, however, that other witnesses had disputed who the cries were coming from.


ABC News quoted a police source as saying that Zimmerman, in a written statement, claimed that Martin also tried to take his gun before the shot was fired."

What a load of BS.l The murderer is having his friends lie for him. He knows he is in danger of going to prison for life. He's in Florida where they put people to death for murder. He's safe though. I sincerely doubt any white, or half white, on death row in Florida is there for killing a black person.

Um...that's one way to look at it, but couldn't the same argument that as Zimmerman was told not to follow him, things may have gone differently had Martin not followed Zimmerman (if that be the case)?

That's not the most ignorant thing I've ever read on B'net. But, it's close.

Well, whatever the case, you certainly come across as being as prejudiced at white Southerners as they come. How does that put you on a different level from whites prejudiced against blacks?

That's true, but most people apparently have made up their minds....it's either going to be a 'guilty' verdict or a modern day lynching.

Having worked in the media myself, I know, it's best to suspend judgement in cases such as this. Wait and see what an investigation uncovers.



But, some people favor mass hysteria and trial by media.
