Suzy Sock Puppet BS: George Zimmerman defense-' Evidence withheld' (1720* d) RE: BS: Zimmerman defense-' Evidence withheld' 28 Aug 13

I'm going to say one more thing here and then stop conversing with BB and GfS on this topic.

It's ultra-clear to me that GZ attempted to detain TM until the police got there. There is evidence to support that. GZ's lies and inconsistencies back that up as well. GZ felt confident doing what he did because he had a gun to "protect" himself should TM resist. TM did resist (which he had every right to do). I will tell you folks that if some strange man without a badge stalked and then attempted to detain me, I would not submit, I would physically struggle- partly out of fear, partly out anger. GZ was looking for that physical struggle so he could justify shooting TM.

One last note, GfS I'm beginning to see why Bobert and Don Firth think ill of you. You take them to task on issues, when quite frankly, you ought to know better. Other times you say good things but when you go on like this, it gets lost. This IS about race. I am a middle aged white woman. GZ would not have stalked and accosted me like he did TM. Because young black males had reportedly broken into homes in that neighborhood, GZ felt he had a right to play cop and treat any young black male as a suspect. He did not have that right except by Florida law- a very fucked up law that makes it possible to shoot someone in cold blood and get away with it.

B & DF, ignore these guys. They just enjoy upsetting us on a topic which really does upset us- and rightly so...
