You seem distressed. What exactly is it about the Martin/Zimmerman decision that bothers you? The jury affirmed, based on all the evidence provided, that Zimmerman killed Martin in self defense. Florida law provides for such defense, making the killing lawful, and therefore not murder.
I haven't had much a chance to really vent on this whole matter, so I kind of unloaded on her.
You're wondering why I'm upset that an innocent, unarmed, young black man was killed? Why are you so goddamned ambivalent about it?
Zimmerman stalked Martin, provoked a fight, and then killed him. He is facing zero consequences for this. And is now a free man again. He probably has his gun again. Who knows who he will kill next in "self defense"? Do you really think I care what Florida deems lawful or unlawful? Do you know or care who Marissa Alexander is or that she's going to prison for 20 years? Frankly, you should be ashamed for not being distressed and bothered about all this.
Please don't ever talk to me again about this situation, unless you completely 180 on your position. You can have your opinion, I just don't want to hear it - especially if your assertion is that I should not feel some kind of way myself. Because I do feel some kind of way. So deal with it.
Sorry for the hostility. I just truly, honestly, can't believe what you just said to me. Honest.
And to all other persons whose stomachs aren't turned by last night's decision, the same goes for you.
