Fat, Scared, Entitled: The Blight of the Suburbs
March 18, 2012 1 Comment
First, read this article.
A captain of the neighborhood watch in a gated community, armed, with a 100-pound advantage over a teenager carrying nothing more suspicious than a bag of Skittles. Don’t underestimate the inherent fear in the mind of a suburbanite when someone is “walking”. Especially in the rain.
In the end, what may happen to George Zimmerman? All we know is than an innocent is dead in Sanford, FL and a 28-year-old captain of the neighborhood watch in a gated community suspected him of burglary, called 911, pursued him, was told by the dispatcher not to pursue him, a handful of residents heard a scuffle, some overheard “what appears to be a desperate cry” for help, and then someone is dead of a bullet wound to the chest.
I say throw the book at him, hard. Murderer.
