World’s deadliest weapons: iced tea and skittles.

So In a few, (hopefully) i’ll have up a picture of Treyvon Martin. One night in late february, seventeen year old high school student, Treyvon was hanging out at his home in a gated community. He decided that he wanted to go to the store. he walked to the store, bought a can of iced tea and some skittles, and began to walk back home. While he was walking home, 28 year old self proclaimed neighborhood watch captain, George Zimmerman began to follow him in his SUV

Later, Treyvon is found dead with Zimmerman standing overĀ  him armed with a gun. Police arrive and ask what happened. Zimmerman tells authorities that he shot Treyvon because he was defending himself. Now, Zimmerman did have a bloody nose and a wound in the back of his head. However, Police – get this – believed him, didn’t run a background check, didn’t run any drug tests, and LET HIM GO.

Now, In Florida, you can use deadly force against pretty much any attack. But under what circumstances is it okay to kill a kid armed with a bottle of tea and skittles. No matter what Treyvon could have been doing to that man, there was no need for him to kill him. Zimmerman looks like he weighs about 250. Treyvon…190 TOPS. Even without weapons it was an unfair fight.

Not to mention, If you’re walking around your neighborhood at night and you notice that you are being followed by an SUV, wouldn’t you get a little scared?! You can’t outrun a car and confronting the driver is dangerous…so who’s good and who’s bad? You tell me.

Kony 2012

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=kony&source=video&cd=8&ved=0CGUQtwIwBw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DY4MnpzG5Sqc&ctbm=vid&ei=V3NwT6ajEOrA0AG0wfS7Bg&usg=AFQjCNHyYNt07Pq1SK1afq8_4ClqcjTLRw&cad=rja

This video is 30 minutes long, but worth watching. do I think this is real? Yes. Do I think something should be done about it? Yes. Kony should caught, but at the same time, we do have our own issues to deal with. Should the guy have dragged his son into the problem? Absolutely not. Even if he did tell his son about the situation, putting that child in the video was not a good idea. The boy had absolutely nothing to do with anything. Sure he was cute, but when he gets older, he’s going to get a lot of crap from jackwagons who don’t like his dad’s opinions which will turn into his opinions.
