Shooting an unarmed minor isn’t right
Zimmerman to be charged
Brandishing a firearm on a self-appointed neighborhood watch patrol is a dangerous situation. Zimmerman was supposed to be “watching,” not becoming an actor in crime.
The trouble begins when citizens attempt to take law into their own hands. The trouble is exacerbated by Florida laws permitting people to carry weapons whether they are concealed or not.
The circumstances will be forthcoming in a court of law.
“George Zimmerman to be charged in Trayvon Martin shooting, official says
By Sari Horwitz, Wednesday, April 11, 1:56 PM
Florida special prosecutor Angela Corey plans to announce as early as Wednesday afternoon that she is charging neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in the shooting ofTrayvon Martin, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation.
It was not immediately clear what charge Zimmerman will face.
Martin, 17 and unarmed, was shot and killed Feb. 26 by Zimmerman, who said he was acting in self-defense. Police in Sanford, Fla., where the shooting took place, did not charge Zimmerman, citing the state’s “stand your ground” law.”
You may “stand your ground,” though you may not provoke. If you do provoke and become a target of resistance, then let’s see what the court says.
