And what of Zimmerman's character? You said nothing of that? Does he have any arrests? Anything questionable in his background? You brought up him selling drugs as if that defines him. As if selling drugs makes you a bad person. It's a bad decision but definitely not a clear reason to label someone as bad. It has nothing to do with the case is my point. You brought it up as if that makes it justifiable.
What's to say? You tell me. I'm sorry, but in my opinion being a drug dealer does make you a bad person. It's a crime and very foolish thing to do. It's interesting that you say that when I posted it in reply to you believing that news outlets were dragging him through the mud. What was untrue? The information was not used in the case by either side but to claim he was being unfairly in the media simply isn't true.
The point is: Trayvon had skeletons in his closet. Zimmerman had skeletons in his. Trayvon allegedly sold drugs. Zimmerman beat his wife and fought a police officer over a traffic violation. You spoke of character. To me one of these things is more relevant than the other. As for being a drug dealer and a bad person. You just called me a bad person. Jay-Z is a bad person. Judge Joe Mathis is a bad person. Numerous other people you don't know are bad people. Are there bad people who sell/sold drugs? Yes. Is every person who sells drugs a bad person? No. If you go into a courtroom and listen for a while you'd see even the prosecution will admit that selling drugs doesn't mean you're a bad person. Just like going to church every Sunday and praying everyday makes you a good person. What's in your soul is something deeper than that.
I don't sell drugs or go to church every... ever. And I think I'm a good person. I mean yeah I've killed a couple teenagers, but they were wearing hoodies so I'm totally justified in it.
