wrong again - you discount the idea that the local law enforcement didn't give a shit about Martin because of his color - my step father was a cop in a small Southern town in SC and I know from him the level of prejudice that existed and still exists today in many Southern towns - it happens, don't doubt that.

Yes, I've a lot of sympathy for your point here Ann - but then here in the UK we have some of the strictest gun-control laws in the world! You're not even allowed to carry pepper spray as a deterrent as you can in France, for example. The bottom-line in this Zimmerman case is probably that it should never have been a "case" at all as there was always insufficient evidence to take it to court. --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, "Ann" wrote: > That is the crux right there, a very good reason why guns have no business in > the hands of any member of the public.
