TrayDay 2016: Only Fools Attack Armed Men

Today is the four year anniversary of the lawfully justified self-defense shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman.  Zimmerman would ultimately be acquitted after a mere hours of deliberations following 14 months of investigation and trial.

Personally and professionally I’ve never seen a cleaner self-defense shoot brought to trial. There was no hope for a conviction based on any reasonable application of the law to the facts, but they dragged Zimmerman to court anyway.

That’s what happens, I guess, when the lead prosecutor finds herself doing poorly with a critical racial demographic while running for re-election.

The myths and lies around the killing of vicious aggressor Martin continue, of course, as I’ve noted in my earlier post today: “Lies About Zimmerman Trial Just Keep Coming.”

Of course, such myths aren lies are not new. For a refresher on the worst of these, and their debunking, you might be interested in my post from TrayDay 2015: “Zimmerman Trial Redux: Busting the Myths Again”

I expect we’ll be doing the same again next year, and every year. Eternal vigilance, and all that. 🙂

(And h/t to Jay Hafemeister over at Facebook for reminding me of my anniversary post from last year.)
