this is splitting hairs now. What are the FACTS::
Zimmerman had a gun , when he should not have.
He followed Martin after being told not to.
He used a naughty word. (not as bad a killing Martin......but may have contributed to the motive)
He shot Martin. Martin died a bit later
No one has been charged. Yet in any other case.........this would classify as MURDER.
No reliable witnesses to verify anything Zimmerman says.
The victim is dead and cannot speak for himself.
The spin doctors are in full action mode.
THe media has gone crazy with this. (until the next one to go crazy over)
Everyone and his cat is being "interviewed"....... depending on which side the media is on.
The Martin family has suffered a huge loss.
Zimmerman has made his mark with the tabloids and is currently a household name.
He IS guilty of shooting and KILLING Martin. the only thing to be determined is the motive and what the appropriate charges would be.
Colpy: Yes.......he could have wounded Martin without killing him. (it happens with monotonous regularity) IF he knew how to handle the gun . But the gun SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN there to begin with.
