Trayvon Martin

The tragedy of Trayvon Martin is that was so unnecessary. George Zimmerman wanted to protect his neighbors. Yet he ended up shooting his neighbor’s son in cold blood. If he had gotten to know his neighbors better, instead of being so overly suspicious and paranoid, following people arround just becuase they “looked suspicious” then he might have known or guessed that the young man in question was in fact the son of his neighbor.
I wish race were not a factor in this. Yet it is in a big way. Without the racial aspect, this young man could be any of us, any of our children.
Where is my constitutional right to be protected from idiots with guns?
