I post on a limited basis. I am busy, and life in general likes to rear up and kick me squarely in the balls from time to time, so I am not on here all that often. When I am, I 100% of the time see you posting to simply go against everyone else. I think, much like fishing and hunting are hobbies to me, stirring people up is your hobby. It brings you joy. It is easier for me to understand you if I think of you in this light because I don't think you can really believe most of what you write. Especially being a vet. And a gun owner?
We live in a free country still, for how long who knows, but right now we do. If I want to get out of my car and walk behind you, "follow" you, I am free to do so and I have broken no laws. If you then chose to confront me and punch me in the face, then smack my head of the cement and "ground and pound me" you have broken the law. So who was in the wrong here? Zimmerman for following someone he thought was suspicious or Martin for beating the guy up for FOLLOWING him?? No where does the law say I have to get back in my car and I am not allowed to follow you. I am not threatening you, not taunting you, just walking in the same direction. No laws are broken. So making Zimmerman out to be a nut and Martin out to be defending himself is lunacy.
I don't think Zimmerman considers himself the victor. His life is forever changed because he decided to not be a victim. Today's youth, and by youth I mean ages 15-25, think that it is just ok to do whatever the hell they want. They think they can act like idiots, ignore the law, and put their hands on people. Sorry, that isn't the way the world works. You can find hundreds of videos online of teens randomly beating people up. They think it is cool. They pick someone out, jump them, beat them up, film it, and post it. Like mostly everything else, this starts at home. Parents need to control their hooligan children. If they cant, they shouldn't have children. My a*@hole neighbor says she cant control her teenager. Really? That is why he runs around the neighborhood acting like an ass? Hmmm.
Martin learned a hard lesson that kids should be taught at an early age. It is not OK to run around putting your hands on other people. Keep your hands to yourself. Some people DO bite.
