If you were getting your head slammed into a concrete sidewalk over and over, screaming for help, and nothing to stop the attacker other than using your gun to do so, what would you do?

Also, how do you know that the very next blow you receive will not be your last. You get a blow to the occipital region, even one, and you can be done.

GZ was doing Townwatch, he had every right to follow TM.

Would you mind expressing yourself a little more clearly? FWIW, my doctor is a black female and I'm in an interracial relationship.

False argument.

You are allowed to defend yourself before you are injured to the edge of death.

Did it give him the right to punch a cop in the face, follow another person in his vehicle & threaten him, point a shotgun at his girlfriend, throw wine bottles, etc...?

Quote- Maybe Trayvon's parents should have taught him to keep his hands off of people who aren't touching him. Maybe teach him not to be racist, either
...

who said TM was a racist-? those are strong words- ask your partner

And, were there any evidence of a head repeatedly slammed into a concrete sidewalk, I would agree with you. The fact this jury felt they didn't have sufficient evidence to convict Zimmerman does not at all prove this is what happened. In fact, there is no such proof.

Exactly! Look at the pics of GZ immediately after. It is just GZ's lawyer throwing spaghetti against the wall to see if it sticks as an excuse for shooting TM. Just like Casey Anthony's dirtbag attorney accused her dad of being a child molester. It's "ANYTHING to distract from the truth" is the game these attorneys play when they have a client who has done the inexcusable. And sometimes they get away with it (especially in Florida).
