Thanks for the legal definition, but if both had firearms I have a feeling the outcome would have been different.

Moral of the story...don't go messing with people because you never know who's packin.
To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right.
If I were to draw imaginary conclusions like Brian, the outcome would have been Trayvon shooting Zimmerman from behind a bush and running away. One attacked and one didn't.

I agree that Z would be 6 feet under and the kid would have run like his a$$ was on fire. But with the way it turned out it would appear one was the hunter and the other the hunted .

Maybe if you lead by example by throwing out your bad apples, like Zimmerman, it might bleed off onto the liberals. Then they might throw out some of their bad apples like JJ and AS.
IMO you fuel this divide that is ruining this country while thinking you are the last great hope.
BTW - This isn't about reason and logic. Those exist on a sliding scale. It's what resides in your heart and ones ability to look at the bigger picture.
Funny, those with all the "reason and logic" can't answer this one.

My personal conclusion from this incident-"It is better to be judged by six women than carried by six friends"
[QUOTE=Brian GC;16235701] I hate black thugs just as much as you do.
Right there is the race problem! What difference does it make if the thug is black, white, green, striped, or have a religious background. They are a thug, period. As such they need to be dealt with. That doesn't mean go out and shot every one of them, but it does mean get them off the street.
I try to look at everybody as pink on the inside, what's on the outside is their actions. If the actions are bad, they need to go. End of story.
As far as Martin goes, I don't know if he was a good kid or not. it was a tragedy that he got shot, but from some of the things I've heard I think he probably would have gotten shot by some one else sooner or later anyway.
Many a man has died reaching into his pocket at a time when his hands should be out in the open.
