It's funny that my disagreement with you illicits nasty, hyperbolic, responses.

You don't "suport random violence" but you sure as hell support the system that encourages it, don't ya? You don't want to take responsibility for that because it could mean less privilege for you. Same reason the idea that an obvious murderer getting his comeuppance from outside that system disturbs you.

So you think Zimmerman is guilty, and if he walks scott free then, hey, thems the breaks? We got a good system here. It only fails minorities and the poor, right?

Yeah. Good system we got there.

But, really. Let's take a look at our two POVs and their most obvious consequences.

Yours resulted in the death of an unarmed teenager. Mine will result in his murderers punishment only if the system fails to adequately prosecute the murderer (which is currently the case).

It takes a certain kinda individual to champion a system as good when there's a heated, national, debate over a critical failure.

We have examples of these critical failures constantly. Yet we have a "good" system. Beyond me how you can reconcile the two together.

(also, it's the first Amendment that guarantees Speech, not the 13th, 14th, 19th, etc)

“Here’s another question I have. How come when it’s us, it’s an abortion, and when it’s a chicken, it’s an omelette? Are we so much better than chickens all of a sudden? When did this happen, that we passed chickens in goodness. Name 6 ways we’re better than chickens... See, nobody can do it! You know why? ‘Cause chickens are decent people.“
