  •  Cops and gun training (0+ / 0-)

    Most cops have virtually zero training in the use of their firearms...I was an instructor in a fairly large city's police academy, the syllabus on this subject covered one afternoon at the range and a bit of target practice.  Zimmerman did NOT 'decide' to kill someone...if you know he did, you are an accessory to murder for not letting the State know about it...otherwise you have just pulled that opinion out of your ass.

    •  Sure He Did (0+ / 0-)

      Zimmerman didn't drop the gun.  It didn't accidentally go off. Zimmerman wasn't aiming at a paper target and missed.  Zimmerman wasn't cleaning the gun thinking it was unloaded.

      Zimmerman loaded his gun with dum dum bullets, pointed his gun directly at Martin's heart from a few inches away, and pulled the trigger on purpose.  The only question was whether the intentional killing was justified or not, or whether there was at least a reasonable doubt about whether the intentional killing was justified or not.
