Based on what I've read about Zimmerman,, and read about the kid, I think an over-eager self-appointed Neighborhood Watch commander got a little too ambitious, tried to stalk a kid for a crime that had not even been established, and wanted to prove himself to local law enforcement so he could complete his goal of becoming a cop. Called the cop 46 times in 8 years to report various things, was enrolled in law enforcement classes in some community college until this incident occurred, when he was kicked out for "safety reasons".
Black kid in a hoodie walkng home talking to his girlfriend. Paranoid, bat-shit crazy wanna be cop, cop wanna be confronts kid, kid freaks out and either tried to run or they get into a scuffle. Cops were on the way and knew exactly where they were. Witnesses heard kid crying for help, girlfriend on home heard him say someone was following him.
Tragic. That's my take. The guy was a disaster waiting to happen. If it had not been this kid, it would have been another, or someone else.
But what gave him the right to do this? If I had a neighbor that stalked the neighborhood looking for troublemakers with a concealed semiautomatic handgun, I'd do what I could to get them locked up.
""He was doing average in school, a little bit better when he was at Carol City and then I had him transferred,'' she said this week. "I thought Krop was a better school and I wanted a different environment for him. My oldest son has graduated from there.''
Martin's older brother, Jhavaris Fulton, 21, is a junior at Florida International University."
"Math was his favorite subject, according to one of his Carol City teachers, Ashley Gantt. She taught his sophomore year English honors class where the curriculum included works such as The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglas and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde."
"Still, Martin had non-violent behavioral issues in school, and on the day he was killed, he had been suspended for 10 days from Dr. Michael M. Krop Senior High School in North Miami-Dade.
"He was not suspended for something dealing with violence or anything like that. It wasn't a crime he committed, but he was in an unauthorized area (on school property)," Tracy Martin said, declining to offer more details."
Arse would be Cyrus the Great, founder of the Achaemenid Empire.
You're the little kid in the back row, blowing spitwrds through a plastic straw.
Seriously, if you liken Arse's treatment of you to the most destructive war in human history, you really need to think about getting over it. This stuff happened four years ago. You made a choice, and you lost. Stop blaming everyone else, and stop taking it out on the entire board. Take a look at your own actions. You are worse than even MovieWhore in that respect.
