On Feb 26th, George Zimmerman, 28, a white Hispanic neighborhood watch captain, shot and killed Trayvon Martin, a black unarmed Maimi 17-year old after following him for several minutes. The news made national headlines around the world.
Despite the hoopla surrounding the shooting case, a young boy was killed. Trayvon was only 17 years old with so many bright years ahead of him before his life is ended unexpectedly by an individual with little respect for himself and little respect for human life.
Since I'm not a sociologist, I won't tell you whether he this murder was premediated or some people are natural born killers but I do know that Zimmerman made a life altering decision that not only would affect his life but take the life of someone else.
Think about that for a minute. It all came down to one decision. He was not under attack and did not act in self defensive. Zimmerman made a quick decision in his mind to pull the trigger and kill the young man.
We won't ever know what exactly went on in his mind before he pulled the trigger, but he made the decision to kill. No one else pulled the trigger for him and the gun sure didn't go off on its own.
