Please watch this video, a crime is commited but you will not be subjected to blood or guts; this took place in my home state in Columbia, MO. http://moonbattery.com/?p=11735&utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter Just ONE reason for a law that would allow a person to defend themself. They're going after that right now, wanting to use the death of Trayvon Martin to make it happen. Do we have the RIGHT to kill others if we believe our lives are in danger? FBI crime stats web site; lists type of weapons used in homocides. http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2010/crime-in-the-u.s.-2010/tables/10shrtbl07.xls You will notice in that link above that FBI crime stats list hands, feet and fists as weapons. That would mean, if they are CONSISTENT, Trayvon was armed and dangerous? He was using his fists as a weapon? He could have KILLED Zimmerman with his fists?

I think that if a person has taken training in martial arts,(I am not talking about little kids taking martial arts to fight bullies or learn self=-confidence, just in case someone on this discussion mentions kids and martial arts.) then what he uses to attack with is considered a lethal weapon. So if Martin did attack Zimmerman, the only way he might be charged if he did kill Zimmerman is if he was registered as a lethal weapon. And therefore Zimmerman might not be charged, but it would be self=defense. But of course, they do not want to do that, because they are afraid of the back lash. Oh and if Martin had been a football player, well maybe that would mean he could use his whole body as a weapon. Something to think about.

Oh and I also heard that Zimmerman was also part black. I think the whole motive of the media is to make sure that when a black or a person who looks black gets in confrontation with someone who does not look black, that the latter loses because even if he defends himself, the only way that he could come up on top is if the black person or the looks more black person kills him. So not only would it make people lose their rights, but they may also be in danger of losing their lives. I hope that Zimmerman is not found guilty of second degree murder, but I suppose the media would love it if he is because they wanted a black president and they wanted the blacks to be the leaders and bosses such as it is in many of the shows I watch, such as NCIS, Fringe, House, the AFrican-Americans are the bosses and unless the other actor is so important that they dare not fire him, the others are subservient to them and now you have a black or part back president who looks black.

I am not for cameras everywhere, but at least these cameras permitted to the police to arrest these people. Without them, I am not sure that the police would have even tried to find the attackers. I live in a country where hands, fists and feet are the only authorized weapons that you can wear with you, and as I am slim and small, I would have some difficulties to face an attacker, so I would better use my feet to run away. Seriously, I think that if somebody is really threatened in his life, killing the attacker is a valid option. But to believe is not enough : a response to an attack should always be proportionate to the attack, but it is often difficult to evaluate if your life is really in danger when you panic. The difference between a lawful self-defense and a murder is sometimes thin.
