If by "kid" you mean a thug with gold teeth who had been doing drugs close to the time of the event.. yeah.
I think by "kid" he meant non-adult. If you want to make 17-year olds full adults, fine, just make sure to lower the voting age, the age of consent, etc. As for "gold teeth"... For starters, my mother had gold teeth and fillings. It's superior to standard dental amalgam. Does that make my mother a thug? Then of course there's the fact that he didn't have gold teeth. Here's a clue for you, people who have pictures of themselves on the Internet wearing fake vampire fangs don't deserve to have stakes driven through their hearts. As for drugs, are you telling me that a teenager in the US was doing drugs? I'm shocked, shocked I tell you.
I don't know if you're just ignorant, or if you're actively false. It looks like what you're trying to do there is dehumanize a person by making them up into a stereotype. It's kind of sick, given the circumstances.
I agree with the claim that Trayvon was standing his ground, just like Zimmerman did... there is no guilty party here either way. Certainly nobody was murdered. Two guys stood their ground and one died. End of story. If we weren't such a PC, litigious society, charges wouldn't have been filed.. just like they weren't initially. Not every death is a "murder" that needs to be prosecuted!
I'm repeatedly stunned by discussion of this case by individuals, the media, and even legal professionals. For some reason everyone, when discussing this case, seems to completely forget about this little thing called manslaughter. It's a simple concept: do something in a bone-headedly incompetent way such that someone is killed and you've committed a crime. It's one of those things that covers edge cases and can be really unfair sometimes. A kid might run out into the street and be hit by a car and the driver is going one mile over the speed limit and they can go to jail. Some chemical company executives might make unsafe decisions about storage of toxic gas and it might escape, sweeping down a valley and over a town killing thousands of people and they can go to jail (Ha! Just kidding, everyone knows the high-level executives won't really go to jail just for killing thousands of people and especially if they're brown people in another country). The point is, maybe you think manslaughter is stupid and should never be prosecuted and you might be able to make a convincing case for it. But there's plenty of legal precedent for people going to jail for manslaughter and, if everything Zimmerman has said is 100% true, he's definitely guilty of manslaughter.
