It’s not about whether George Zimmerman is guilty or not, it’s about the fact that in a wake of conflict, people (not just Americans) lose sanity.
We have a first amendment in this country that gives freedom of speech to all who live and pay taxes here. Where the issue comes in, is where people begin to act on what they say, losing all self-control. George Zimmerman may be guilty, but that is our call, and it is most certainly no one’s right to take his life. An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. It doesn’t bring back Trayvon, and from the way his parents talk about him, it doesn’t sound like something he’d want either.
Posted below is a list of death threats against Zimmerman. Inhumane, disgusting actions in which people write about what they would do to him. Quite frankly, these people are the reason most of us lose faith in humanity. They’re a disappointment to this country and the men and women fighting for our lives overseas. Try to stomach these.
And if those weren’t enough, here’s two against a man only trying to make sense of the situation, Geraldo Rivera.
