From what I am understanding about that incident is an argument quickly escalated into a brawl without any gun shots being fired. Apparently all that they were doing was fighting with each other without any deadly weapons being pulled out.

I know maybe he should not have went to get the gun from his car (start thinking before yall take action) This was a fight and not a shootout. Him being charged with second degree of attempted murder is too harsh to me. A person is not attempted to murder when they shoot someone in the leg. Attempted murder is when you shoot somebody in their back or in their chest or in their head but, they just did not die though.

What that guy should have did was once he walked away he should have stayed there until his friends had gotten themselves from out of that brawling crowd because apparently he does not like to fight but, he will shoot a warning shot though. In other words do not try and fight with him because he do not like to fight but, he will shoot you though.

Real Talk sometimes fighting can actually lead to some one's DEATH. That is why it is very important to think about what the consequences of your actions could be before even making certain moves.

Hmmm, to me it should not actually matter if he was with a white girl or a black girl or any other race of girls. It really does not matter what race of guys he was with either because he is black and they want to take him down for defending himself from some out of control fighting animals (he wanted no trouble but trouble had followed him anyway).

Matter of fact what race was the guy that he shot? Black or White. They want to give him 25 to 35 yrs. Just for shooting someone in the leg because he does not believe in fighting like some wild and out of control animals? My question is are they trying to take him down because he is black or are they trying to take him down because he had shot a white guy in his leg for hitting him.

In any case matter some people act as if when they be out there acting like wild and out of control animals that they do not suppose to get shot by a black mans gun because the black man do not believing in fighting. The thing about a lot of these young black guys is they actually are not into fighting and that is why they will shoot instead. In other words stop trying to fight with them and I do not care if they are black just like you are.

I hope I answered your question because sometimes I do not be understanding the way yall will use yalls words.

Those backwards thinking always getting it wrong white dummies did not even lock up that psychotic minded Mexican Zimmerman for shooting ang killing a black guy who did not have a gun on him but, a bag of skittles on him and did not like to fight and that Mexican Dog Zimmerman k that Trayvon Martin did not carry guns and that is why that foreign disease carrying and passing devil dog from another country had shot him dead.

Those racist white people k that Trayvon Martin was a Angel sent from heaven by God but, those racist white devil dogs are not going to tell yall that though.

All of those other race of people know who God's Angels are but, they are liars so they are not going to tell yall the truth because they are devils who will fight with God every day.

Michael Giles weapon was Legal and he did not even kill that other dude, he just shot him in a part of his body that would not kill him.

I suppose if it was a born mentally disturbed white guy or a born mentally disturbed mexican guy then he would have gotten away with it. Didn't I tell you black people how stupid these white people are? And it is because they are DUMMIES which makes them DEVILS because God did not create any of them. Those white people ain't nothing but, a bunch of DUMMIES who are trying to take control over everbody else as if they are the superior ones over all.

You wont hear anything disagreement from me. You don't bring a gun to a fist fight. The Zimmerman case has everyone up in the air ,but they fell to realize is that for the same reason that they think Zimmerman is guilty is the reason the others are guilty. Neither Zimmerman, Alexander, Dunn or this guy were really in fear of their life and the force they used did not match the assailants threat . Ignorance of the law is no excuse for the defendant or those who support the notion that they victims of a racist judicial system. As far as the Dunn case is concerned he is not eligible for the 10 ten year sentence because he discharged his weapon during the crime that's why Alexander got the 20 instead of ten. Dunn should get life which is the max, now I watched the Zimmerman trial and based on the evidence presented I understood how they found him not guilty but theres no way h^ll they could arrive at a not guilty verdict in his case.

You are right on point on Zimmerman. Zimmerman had never had his azz whoop before and I am sure when he challenged this kid(in his mind) and he didn't back down it threaten everything he thought about himself. I am White, a person of authority and this neg-ro is beating my azz with a Arizona tea can. His lawyer was correct in not going for Stand Your ground and instead used self defense.I didn't like the fact that sucker got off ,but with the weak case the prosecution put on I see why .I understand why Alexander did what she did ,but I don't understand the lies she told during and after the trial nor do I understand her turning down the plea deal and taking her chances with the 10-20-life sentence guidelines. Alexander has a masters degree and it didn't occur to her that 1. They caught me in a lie about the garage door wouldn't open 2.While out on bail and ordered not to have contact with Rico Gray I not only violated the order but I also assaulted him. 3. I feared for my life in the August attack but didn't call 911 and after the assault(she claimed he attacked her) I still didn't call 911. 4. the jury that will hear my case will probably be all white or majority white. This 4 things are good reasons to accept the plea deal .I wont stand in judgement tho because I have never been nor will I be a battered woman.
Lastly it is correct there a lot of Whites getting away with murder using Stang Your ground and other laws ,but its foolish to ask the judicial system to do the same for us. Right is right and wrong is wrong, so make sure justice is dealt out equally regardless of race.

I know Zimmerman said Trayvon was pounding his head into the pavement , but if go back and look at two small cuts on the back of his head and the curt across the bridge of his nose you will see they aren't consistent with his head been pounding into the ground. Also there was no swelling or bruising . The police never tested the can for blood .Finally like I said, this is only what I think happened .

Trayvon Martin is not here to tell his own side of the story and if he was those no good half born filthy flea bitten lying white dogs probably still would not believe him.

Those racist white dogs and mexican dogs PLAN PLOT where to take yall down without yall having a clue about it. They tried to take me down to but, I had caught that sh!t every time and that is why I am telling all that I know about those foolish filthy flea bitten lying racist mange dogs.

Those dog and skunk smelling white women better stay out of my way because I am just about ready to snap out on one of those syphilis carrying hound dogs. My mother was born a genius to and she had told me the reason why those white women came out with that infectious disease called SYPHILIS is because those white men were sleeping around with sheep.

The way that those born mentally disturbed other race of people look at black people like they ain't nobody to kill up is the same exact way as I look at them. NOBODIES. I do not like for those other race of people or their kids to touch me in the wrong way because I be to afraid that they might try and pass me something because of who I am. In other words I do not and will not ever trust the those Devils.
