Maybe it was wrong of Martin to attack Zimmerman, never the less he started the attack with his bare knuckles and Zimmerman was the most distingused type of wanker when he dessided that this duel of who was the bigger man and pulled out a gun to not only defend himself but mutalet another human, the first and only rule I feel that anyone that shall ever carry a fire-arm is that they will never use it to end another life with it. Hurt maybe, some what of a warning. But never as a fatality, not never! This case represents all the injustice in this world. Zimmerman knew that he was overempowerd compared to Martin. What kind of a knob head brings a gun to a fist fight anyway? I don't see any reason why he is innocent, is he not guilty of taking a life that was not his to take, is he not guilty of being a cruel man when he can feel that he has deserved the right to be a free man. If I ever come to any leadership of any part of any society. There will never be a trail of this sense...

The only real thing that bugs me about all this is i keep hearing that the police told him not to pursue the kid and he did anyway.
So couldn't EVERYTHING have been avoided if he just let the cops handle it?
#60 to #58 - gassnake (07/15/2013) [-]
911 operator =/= police

and 911 operators hold no legal power
#61 to #60 - hachintheaxe (07/15/2013) [-]
Seem to me tat h still took the law into his own hands.
but i guess he was allowed since he was top dog in the neighborhood watch?
wutev its a sad situation but whats done is done
#63 to #61 - gassnake (07/15/2013) [-]
By taking the law into his own hands you mean he defended himself from getting his head pulverized then yes. But the fault really lies with the attacker, martin, who decided to confront Zimmerman with violence instead of reasoning with him.
#65 to #63 - hachintheaxe (07/15/2013) [-]
but wasn't he stalking the kid in the first place?
following him because he thought he was a criminal?
I haven't been following this case so all my knowledge is second hand
#67 to #65 - gassnake (07/15/2013) [-]
He was following him to report his location to the operator who would then relay it to the police due to the string of robberies that had occured in his neighborhood
#68 to #67 - hachintheaxe (07/15/2013) [-]
oh the operator told him to follow the guy, thats dumb
#69 to #68 - gassnake (07/15/2013) [-]
George followed him to relay his position the operator did not order him to
#70 to #69 - hachintheaxe (07/15/2013) [-]
Probrobly shouldn't have done that...but oh well
#71 to #70 - gassnake (07/15/2013) [-]
Legally he was in the clear whether or not anyone believes he should have followed him, but everyone likes to forget that he was attacked by trayvon.
#72 to #71 - hachintheaxe (07/15/2013) [-]
Yeah i guess so. sad that things turned out the way they did
#66 to #65 - hachintheaxe (07/15/2013) [-]
i mean, if i thought there was a dangerous criminal in my neighborhood i certainly wouldn't follow him
#59 to #58 - hachintheaxe (07/15/2013) [-]
and like i've said before, its a sad situation but people get away with ****** all the time.

in the uk once you are 10 you are accountable for all of your crimes.
#62 to #57 - neostar (07/15/2013) [-]
Wow. That actually really sucks.
User avatar #56 - omnomnominator (07/15/2013) [-]
Anyone would do the same thing, if some guy, regardless of race or age, has me on the floor, pounding my head into the floor, chances are, I'm not going to be able to regain the advantage with my bare hands, I'm not Rocky, no one is. If someone is putting your life in danger and you have a weapon, you bloody use it, Martin got what he deserved, and the family will have to live with the fact that if their son wasn't so violent and short-tempered, he'd still be alive.
User avatar #55 - vedgetable (07/15/2013) [-]
it sounds pretty ******* stupid to me if you cant overpower a seveteen year old boy, how about not be a giant **** that relies on a lethal weapon to defend yourself.
for ***** sake its like people totally forgot that they had fists, and by the way if your head was smashed into concrete, im pretty sure you couldnt reach your gun
#54 - peridot (07/15/2013) [-]
None of this would have happened if Zimmerman had just called the goddamn police, reported it to a dispatcher, and just went back inside his ******* home.
#51 - anonymous (07/15/2013) [-]
How exactly is he a ****** ? Just because he's black doesn't not equal a ****** , just like if someone is white it doesn't equal white trash.

Also, how is he at fault for any of this? He didn't go running up to Zimmerman and start a fight with him. This is just a 17 year old teenager walking home from buying something from the store. Zimmerman is the one who followed Martin, not the other way around. He perceived Martin as a threat because he was walking down a path with a hoodie on at night? How many teenagers regardless of race/nationality walk around with hoodies on at night? Should they all be perceived as threats and shot?
#64 to #51 - quazyjash (07/15/2013) [-]
This, this makes him a ****** .
#76 to #64 - peridot (07/15/2013) [-]
So we're just going by Facebook pictures to judge people now?
#77 to #76 - quazyjash (07/16/2013) [-]
Well that's how he openly wanted to represent himself, so why not?
User avatar #73 to #64 - droysters (07/15/2013) [-]
Wait wait wait...
Why the **** would wearing a hoodie on a rainy night be ********** ?
#74 to #73 - quazyjash (07/15/2013) [-]
sorry, i didn't crop the text out, I just meant the bottom picture.
#50 - DeSage (07/15/2013) [-]
Am I the only one that doesn't care? People die everyday so it doesn't really make a difference. Should Zimmerman followed him? Probably not. Should he have listened to the dispatcher? Yes. But that doesn't matter any more. Whats done is done. Can we all just shut up and watch porn or something?
#52 to #50 - anonymous (07/15/2013) [-]
No because if no one says anything then its going to keep happening.
User avatar #45 - ijustwantedtophoto (07/15/2013) [-]
u know u can defend george zimmerman all u want but it doesnt stop the fact that someone is dead and that his mother is going to have to go on living knowing the person who killed her son is out walking free while her son is in a hole in the ground
#48 to #45 - anonymous (07/15/2013) [-]
he is in a hole in the ground because he chose to attack someone. therefore it is his own fault.
#39 - anonymous (07/15/2013) [-]
Supposed to magically know he was 17? HE SHOULDNT HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE..
#40 to #39 - anonymous (07/15/2013) [-]
I dont know enough about this case to comment. But i do want to get something of my chest.

All these ******* dress like gangsters, talk like gangster and act like gangsters. Just to try and intimidate people into thinking they are the real **** .
And if someone actually thinks that they are infact the real deal, every nignog flips his **** and screams in perfect unision DAS RACIST!

What the actual **** ? If you dont want people who are in charge of security to suspect you of being bad news STOP ******* DRESSING AND ACTING LIKE YOU ARE GOING TO BE BAD NEWS.
#35 - anonymous (07/15/2013) [-]
I'm glad the little ****** is dead. I'm not racist or anything but I just think everything would be a lot better if there wasn't any ******* around. I'm seriously not being racist but sometimes I wonder why ******* are actually still around, how have we not killed them off by now? I ******* hate ******* .

I'm not racist.
#36 to #35 - anonymous (07/15/2013) [-]
you basicly just said im racist im not racist im racist im not racist dude really
#37 to #36 - anonymous (07/15/2013) [-]
maybe he hates ******* but not black people.
there is a difference.
#42 to #37 - taurusguy (07/15/2013) [-]
Well that is logical, i actually like ******* , but the black people, damn, hope they burn in hell
User avatar #31 - dafiltafish (07/15/2013) [-]
**** it, I'm done with this. when you try to rationalize either side you just get yelled at.
#30 - anonymous (07/15/2013) [-]
Can someone explain:

1) How do i get a gun in florida (mine is illegal in the states)?
2) Is it really enough reason enough, to feel threatend before you can shoot someone?
User avatar #34 to #30 - tannerninja ONLINE (07/15/2013) [-]
Just moved to florida but it is a lot easier to get than most of the other states. Most others you have to register the weapon which in florida you don't
User avatar #28 - heartgoldawesome (07/15/2013) [-]
Can someone explain the whole Zimmerman thing that's going on?
User avatar #29 to #28 - satrenkotheone (07/15/2013) [-]
That kid beat some guy so the guy shot him in self defence and now he's free and all the liberals and ******* went nuts becasue Zimmerman is the reincarnation of Hitler and Hermann Goering and is the saviour of the Aryan race despite being half Hispanic and Jewish.

Also Skittles.
User avatar #27 - ktbmnf (07/15/2013) [-]
soooo. i havent been paying attention to this whole zimmerman thing because i dont watch tv anymore, and dont pay attention to things as much anymore. whats with the whole zimmerman and some child case all about? and..... Ice tea, and skittles?
User avatar #10 - maidenmk (07/15/2013) [-]
this kid was half his size.
Zimmerman had a gun.
And now this kid is DEAD. In the ground. ******* DEAD.
Zimmerman, a grown man with a gun in his hand could have deescalated the situation in any number of ways.
But instead went for the stupid and scared american way of shooting away your problems.
This is just another example of the world seeing an american do what they do best: Solve their problems with a gun. You will destroy yourselves before you'll ever learn. Before terrorism gets you. You will be the ones to take your own 'Freedom'.
User avatar #78 to #10 - TwelveCharlie (07/18/2013) [-]
Trayvon Martin: 6'0" 160# athletic build
George Zimmerman: 5'9" 170-185#, pudgy

Twice his size? You should try getting some facts before you post.
#46 to #10 - anonymous (07/15/2013) [-]
He shot a ****** i call that problem solved
User avatar #43 to #10 - psykobear (07/15/2013) [-]
You can't talk sense on FunnyJunk, it falls on deaf ears.
#41 to #10 - tbhp (07/15/2013) [-]
think you should formulate it differently man and not box inn all americans like that, but i agree with you that zimmerman a former security guard for four years shouldnt have any problems fighting off a skinny guy like trayvon, yet alone manage to work a gun propperly and took shoot a non lethal shot.

in the first place zimmerman should not have followed him, I would have done exactly the same as trayvon and started fighting someone that was following me like that.
its called fight or flight and unfortunatley trayvon fought.
User avatar #38 to #10 - mcmanybucks (07/15/2013) [-]
Its human instinct ya numbskull.

if u run towards a lion it doesnt sit down and evaluate which of its tools of survival it should use, it ******* pounces at ya..its called panic.
User avatar #14 to #10 - metalguitarest (07/15/2013) [-]
The kid was not half his size. They used pictures from 5 or 6 years previous to what happened to Martin. In reality he was 6'0 and pretty muscular from football.
User avatar #15 to #14 - maidenmk (07/15/2013) [-]
5 or 6 years??? this kids was only 17.
User avatar #17 to #15 - metalguitarest (07/15/2013) [-]
I know how old he was but the media portrayed his much younger pictures rather than his more current ones to shine him in a better light. You said zimmerman could've deescalated the problem in another way, if you knew about the case you'd realize he didn't have the chance. Martin sprinted through bushes and onto the other side of the street when he confronted Zimmerman by punching him jumping ontop of him and repeatedly pounding his head into the pavement. Fearing for his life Zimmerman shot him. Simple.
User avatar #18 to #17 - maidenmk (07/15/2013) [-]
fearing for his life, not dying and certainly not dead. I wasnt there so i dont know exactly how it went down. But at the end of the day this guy had a gun, he chose to shoot first and think later. He let fear take hold of him. He'll spend the rest of his life in fear.
And this kid will be in the ground for every second of that. DEAD.
User avatar #32 to #18 - imakejewburgers (07/15/2013) [-]
So you're honestly trying to say that if some guy was bashing your head against the ground and you had a gun you wouldn't shoot him? I want you to very clearly state what exactly you would do if some guy was bashing your head against the ground and you had a gun. Because right now it sounds like you're saying that you would just take it and you cannot possibly be that fabulously stupid.
User avatar #20 to #18 - metalguitarest (07/15/2013) [-]
I'm sorry but if I'm getting my head repeatedly slammed into the concrete which if continued WILL ******* KILL ME, I will shoot the mother ****** as well. Seriously? Now you're just being ridiculous, you clearly know nothing of what happened and because a gun was involved you automatically assumed he was a trigger happy american who gunned him down as a first thought rather than a last chance shot of adrenaline because this "kid" might kill him.
User avatar #22 to #20 - maidenmk (07/15/2013) [-]
You got it in one. Trigger happy americans. Your self defence laws are ****** .
#33 to #22 - moshimoshi (07/15/2013) [-]
I've seen a lot of retards on the internet, but you are at least in the top five. The day you get assaulted, be sure to remember your personal beliefs that a criminal is more worth than you... You know, so you don't hurt him or anything.
#25 to #22 - metalguitarest (07/15/2013) [-]
Okay either you're a very clever troll and you got me if you are but if you aren't you are seriously the stupidest and most ignorant individual I have ever met. Our self defense laws work like this, if any man trespasses on your property and is a threat to you or your family you do have the right to shoot him, however, if he is retreating and running away you cannot shoot because the threat is no longer there. If a threat is present you have every right to defend yourself or your family until the threat is eliminated. You know nothing of our laws and apparently nothing of this case. Your opinion is invalid and you are increasingly ignorant. You are worse than any anon I have ever spoken to.

Why do you even care? I'm betting you know neither of these people and are affected by it in absolutely no way at all. Are you this upset by everything in the world, or just what comes on the tv saying you should?
User avatar #12 to #11 - maidenmk (07/15/2013) [-]
ask yourself that very question. really think about. If you reply within 10 or 15mins, I know that you wont have.
#13 to #12 - flemsdfer ONLINE (07/15/2013) [-]
Oh, I've figured out that answer for me a while ago.
Oh, I've figured out that answer for me a while ago.
User avatar #16 to #13 - maidenmk (07/15/2013) [-]
And how does that fact that you dont care legitimise your opinion over anyone else's?
And as for you answer, you claim you have it, but at the end of the day why do you even care? I'm betting you know neither of these people and are affected by it in absolutely no way at all. Are you this upset by everything in the world, or just what comes on the TV saying you should?
User avatar #19 to #16 - flemsdfer ONLINE (07/15/2013) [-]
I never claimed my opinion was more legitimised over anyone elses and repeating my question doesn't get you anywhere since it was a question you never answered, but just keep shoveling back to me. I asked why you cared about this event. Everyone seems to care so much; including you, but why? Terrible things happen like this all over and THIS is the one we all seem to fall on in outrage? Why? I've told you that I don't care because I don't. I don't know either party or live anywhere near it to boot. So what's your reason to feel so strongly on this particular event? Do you feel so strongly about all events that happen or is it because this one was plastered everywhere by media choice and you care because "you're just supposed to"?
User avatar #21 to #19 - maidenmk (07/15/2013) [-]
Its because a coward kill an unarmed kill with a gun.
User avatar #23 to #21 - flemsdfer ONLINE (07/15/2013) [-]
How do you know about that?
User avatar #24 to #23 - maidenmk (07/15/2013) [-]
how dont you?
#53 to #24 - anonymous (07/15/2013) [-]
Holy **** i thought you were trolling but I'm starting to think you're actually stupid
User avatar #26 to #24 - flemsdfer ONLINE (07/15/2013) [-]
Because I didn't see it. You say a coward shot somebody with a gun. I say how the hell do you know? My guess is the news picked a side and you tagged along. I don't know what went down that night and you don't either.
User avatar #8 - Hashenmier (07/15/2013) [-]
The reports i read from before charges were pressed, said that zimmerman shot treyvon essentially in cold blood. He rand the police for a man "acting ************ ", he was warned not to do anything but still did. There were accounts of the boy screaming for help for a while before the gunshots were heard.



Maybe my sources were wrong, but the information in this post in contrary to everything else i've seen and heard

Regardless of how you view it, the jury is only supposed to rule guilty when the evidence proves guilt BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT. I highly suggest watching 12 Angry Men, to see exactly why it is important to have a court set up in just that way.
