Mr. Zimmerman, physically over-matched by Mr. Martin, had every right to defend himself by using deadly force to avoid serious injury or death when Mr. Martin was pounding his head onto a concrete sidewalk. Mr. Martin's actions constituted assault and battery, perhaps even attempted murder. But in Liberal World, it seems that African Americans always get a free pass. To cite a local example, last year a group of blacks attacked a white tourist from Virginia, knocked him unconscious, stripped him, and robbed him. They were not charged with a hate crime. Can anyone seriously believe that if a group of whites had done the same to a black man that they would not have been charged with a hate crime?
