They're basically saying yes GZ profiled TM but here's "why" and here's the mindset of a neighborhood watch trying to protect his neighborhood who has been dealing with robberies
No Im not saying it gives GZ permission to shoot TM but obviously it goes to why GZ was so aggressive to following TM which led to the altercation.
The police aren't supposed to profile based on race, even though they do...so why is this dude who doesn't even know the streets to his neighborhood doing it?
If I'm driving drunk and I kill my passenger. I'll probably be convicted of his death. Even though I had no intent, it was a mistake, MY mistake. Zimmerman intentionally pulled the trigger and set the entire course in action. A kid is dead. It wasn't an accident. Zimmerman wasn't walking down the block and tripped and his gun discharged.
I don't care if you want to call it murder 2 or manslaughter, but none of this **** would have happen if it wasn't for Zimmerman. Trayvon would be enjoying his summer right now.
