    hawcreek law allows starting a fight with a black man then shooting him if you are losing.

    I wonder if the law could be applied the other way in some liberal areas.

    • "George Zimmerman son of judge with sealed closed arrest record in Fla. 27 Mar 2012 'Now we know why George Zimmerman didn't get arrested... No Words... According to court records, George Zimmerman is the son of retired Supreme Court Magistrate Judge Robert J Zimmerman, his mother Gladys Zimmerman is a court clerk... He has three closed arrests: 7/18/05 for resisting arrest with violence and battery on a law enforcement officer div 10... 8/9/05 for domestic violence div 44... And again on 8/10/05, domestic violence"

    • "...starting a fight with a black man then shooting him "

      Your job, Mrs. Phelps, so you choose to accept it: Prove Mr. Zimmerman started the fight in spite of no supporting evidence and if so you may have a vehicle to a manslaughter conviction based on emotion.

      Considering the first words communicated, as both sides agree, were the words of Trayvon confronting Zimmerman, and consider that the State's prize witness has Trayvon muttering racial slurs just prior to the confrontation, good luck with your Mission Impossible task, Mrs Phelps, your premise will self destruct in 5 seconds as illogical.

      You know the interesting thing about your jury rigged supposition, is that in most places even if you begin the confrontation, the confronted one has no right to kill you by bashing your head into a concrete sidewalk. If it escalates to that you DO have a right to use deadly force.

      • Seems that Zimmerman had a temper to start such a fight ...

        "In 2005, a woman filed a petition for an injunction against Zimmerman, claiming that he came to her house and became violent when she told him to leave, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Zimmerman, 21 at the time, filed a petition of his own in response.

        Just a month before that, the paper reports, Zimmerman was at a bar near the University of Central Florida when a friend was arrested on suspicion of serving minors. Zimmerman became profane and pushed a law enforcement agent who tried to escort him away. He was arrested after a short struggle. That arrest had been reported previously."

      • Deadly force is only usable in the case of reasonable fear of loss of life.
        Or if Zimm gets off then it must be OK to shoot if you are just losing the fight.
