A Reader Claims Not To Care What Color The “Morally Wrong” George Zimmerman Is

Who cares what color?!
I don’t give a rat’s behind if George Zimmerman is purple!
It is morally wrong to follow someone!
Would YOU like to be someone’s suspect and be followed?
Would George Zimmerman like to be someone’s suspect and be followed?
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
George Zimmerman failed to learn that at the Catholic church he was an altar boy at.
James Fulford writes: The reader has fallen into most of the fallacies about the assault that George Zimmerman survived. For example, it’s not immoral for a neighborhood watchman to follow someone, it’s the job he has volunteered to do. And Zimmerman was right to suspect Trayvon Martin of being up to no good. In How a Miami School Crime Cover-Up Policy Led to Trayvon Martin’s Death, July 15, 2013, Stacy McCain pointed out that Martin actually was a criminal, having been suspended from his school after he was caught in possession of stolen property. There’s no reason to think that Martin wasn’t looking to steal something, and the crime that got him killed was much more serious than burglary.
Martin made a vicious, murderous attack on George Zimmerman, and he was sitting on Zimmerman`s chest pounding on him when Zimmerman fired in self-defense. Martin`s body had injuries to the knuckles, and Zimmerman was battered and bloody.
But that’s not the important thing—while Ms. Warner claims not to care what color Zimmerman is (and Martin was) she’s the only person in the country who feels that way. Everyone else involved, from the President on down, cares a lot.
